Maurice Benard Previews Sonny’s Return on GENERAL HOSPITAL!


With every day that passes, GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Sonny becomes more and more ingrained in the life amnesiac “Mike” is building both in Nixon Falls and in his romantic relationship with Nina. Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Sonny’s widow, Carly, is preparing to marry his right-hand man, Jason. Sooner or later, Sonny’s past is bound to come back to him — and portrayer Maurice Benard recently weighed in on what he thinks will be an epic confrontation!

“It’s going to be a great fight when Sonny does return,” Benard told Michael Fairman TV, musing that if Carly and Jason are in fact married when the time comes that his alter ego remembers who the heck he is, it’s going to be a turning point chock full of soapy drama!

As GH viewers are well aware, longtime best friends Carly and Jason got engaged as a business power play. By presenting a united front as the heads of the Corinthos crime family, they’ll be sending a clear message to the Five Families that their organization is not one to be messed with, despite Sonny’s death. While the marriage will only be a business arrangement (at least at first!), there’s a pretty good chance that Sonny won’t take too kindly to the news of the nuptials!

“The thing about Sonny is that it’s what Sonny does best, or what I do playing him best, is betrayal,” shared the GH star. “So, for him, this is not a good thing. I would assume he’s just going to go, “What the…” and all hell is going to break loose.”

And if Sonny’s arrival in Port Charles happens to be on Carly and Jason’s wedding day — because wouldn’t that just be the epitome of soap-opera drama? — as many fans are predicting, all the better! “Well, however it goes,” mused Benard, “I would say, just let them just watch the fireworks as they unfold.”
