HomeTVGeneral HospitalSonny Shoots His Son on GH Luke Kerr January 22, 2010 59 Comments Sonny (Maurice Benard) has shot a wife, so it isn’t surprising that he’d end up shooting a son at some point. Watch the General Hospital promo after the jump. 59 Responses CarlyCfan January 23, 2010 I bet its editing at it best and someone else end up being the shooter lol. I can’t wait!!! Log in to Reply curacaoman January 23, 2010 These promo’s really take all the expectation out of watching the shows! Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin January 23, 2010 Awesome promo! Two amazing actors head to head! And as a Sonny fan I call shennigans. He shot Carly accidentally. He truly believed Lorenzo the Stalker was hurting her. He would never intentionally hurt his soul mate. CarSon FF. Log in to Reply growpeas January 23, 2010 You are probably right, CarlyCfan. I had never thought of that. In any event – I’m really looking forward to seeing how this plays out. Log in to Reply ghaddict January 23, 2010 I love it!!!!!!!! Log in to Reply GossipGirl January 23, 2010 Yay! Dominic got a haircut! Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott January 23, 2010 Gun play on GH?! I’m shocked. Log in to Reply J Bernard Jones January 23, 2010 I’m quite impressed with the tag line "Daytime Emmy Winner Maurice Benard and newcomer Dominic Zamprogna…" That’s the real take-away in this promo: ABC Daytime promoting its STARS. When was that last time that happened? Log in to Reply troymcclure January 23, 2010 [quote=GossipGirl]Yay! Dominic got a haircut![/quote] I think that was an old clip. I got chills watching that promo especially Dante telling Sonny cooly if he wants to add cop killer to his list. GO DANTE!!!! Log in to Reply sassysdreams January 23, 2010 From everything I’ve seen and read I think it’s true. WOW is my first reaction to this promo! I had to watch it more than once! Did you catch the look on Lulu’s face? I really do think in the months ahead will be seeing some riveting scenes on GH!!! Log in to Reply wr022 January 23, 2010 Way to go ABC that was a HOT promo! Log in to Reply ahanshew January 23, 2010 I really like how they are promoting MB and DZ. I really do hope Sonny shoots him and it’s not someone else (not that I want someone shot – LOL). It makes the most sense with Soony finding out Dominic is a cop. I hope they do this right!!! Log in to Reply Luke Kerr January 23, 2010 What I can’t wait to see is Michael’s reaction when he learns that he is no longer the older brother and that his birthright (as he was talking about today) isn’t really his birthright. Michael hating his older "brother" could be a really good s/l, especially since Morgan likes Dante/Dominic so much. Log in to Reply FaisonFanInTexas January 23, 2010 Luke Kerr I agree this should be good with Morgan and Dante’ get along well. I think Morgan will be happy after he gets over the cop thing! Log in to Reply Chels725 January 23, 2010 dang this is gonna be good. can’t believe that GH is actually promoting the actors & not just the characters. must be a blue moon. Log in to Reply mayjadjor January 23, 2010 AHHHHHH!!! I can’t wait!! Did you see how haggard Sonny looked when he walked into Dante’s hospital room? Oh, I’m soooo looking forward to some inner Sonny turmoil!! Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 January 23, 2010 This is Guza for you, wash, rinse and repeat. Log in to Reply samrocks January 23, 2010 Two questions: 1) In Dante’s eyes, hasn’t Sonny already added "cop killer" to the list with his childhood mentor? 2) Simonstuart…how is this a wash, rinse, repeat? Did he already shoot one of his other children? Log in to Reply GuiltyPleasures January 23, 2010 Wow! Great promo! Log in to Reply watchingallday January 23, 2010 This promo makes me incredibly excited to watch next week. If only to find out how Sonny is not in freaking prison and is able to visit Dante in the hospital after seemingly shooting him point blank. I hate that GH has become the Sonny hour, but this story has a great deal of potential, and has created probably my favorite couple on daytime presently in Lante. Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 January 23, 2010 Samrocks, if Sonny shoots Dante, Sonny already shoot Carly when pregnant trying to shoot Alazacar and Dante will not put Sonny in jail where he belongs, LOL. I just feel that Guza needs new ideas or Frons needs a new headwriter for GH. Log in to Reply samrocks January 23, 2010 Aaahhh, I get it. I was afraid that I had missed something because, to be honest, I’m really surprised Sonny has only shot ONE loved one by accident. Seriously. Log in to Reply keanna January 23, 2010 WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Score another grade A promo for ABC. Can’t wait to see what happens. Log in to Reply c0rinne January 23, 2010 Well, he does have 30 kids. He’s not going to miss one. Log in to Reply patrick1965 January 23, 2010 Someone should shoot Sonny after what he did to AJ , and got away with it all these years. He doesn’t deserve any children. Sonny show sickening.

Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin January 23, 2010 Michael is 18 so in PC time, AJ happened about a decade ago. Time to give up the ghost. Log in to Reply maxsmom January 23, 2010 patrick1965, I’m with you, if I didn’t want to remember the history of my soaps, I’d watch sitcoms where every week we start anew Log in to Reply elbugten January 23, 2010 I saw this as the tagline of my ABC Hotsheet email and I thought "it was bound to happen". He shot his wife, so he may as well shoot a kid, too. Although frankly, I’m surprised he didn’t have Jason do it for him. He has Jason do all his other dirty work.

And Brenda was so great that GH has tried and failed miserably to replace her since she left. Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin January 23, 2010 They have to try and replace Brenda because Sam and Carly cant carry the show alone and none of the other females in that age range are interesting. Boobzilla and the Stairmaster arent fit to lick the bottom of Brenda’s shoes. Log in to Reply GossipGirl January 23, 2010 You’re right troymcclure! I got excited for no good reason. His shaggy hair sometimes distracts me and I was hoping he cut it. Log in to Reply GossipGirl January 23, 2010 Thank You Season! I thought I was the only person that was not a Brenda fan! I could care less if Vanessa Marcil ever comes back! Log in to Reply samrocks January 23, 2010 Speaking of getting excited for no good reason, I caution everyone about getting their hopes up based on a promo department. By now we should know that the talent/creativity in the promo department far exceeds that of the writing team. Log in to Reply sb_fan January 23, 2010 Whooo..hooo!!! I will definitely be watching. Dominic Z. looks so freaking hot!! Log in to Reply season1217 January 23, 2010 I can’t front. Brenda was my girl back in the day. I just couldn’t let Jamey talk about AJ that way. Interestingly, I only started to take an interest in AJ long after he died. Log in to Reply GH LOVER January 23, 2010 This Promo looks So Good … GH is becoming to be my greek tragedy show …. the Mob is the Greek tragedy in GH Log in to Reply Miry January 23, 2010 Wow, good promo. I just gotta say that Sonny sucks… I hate that the fact that Dominante took a car to the kidneys for his son Morgan just doesn’t mean that much to him. Plus he saved Sonny’s life as well. Sonny should give him the chance to run… but then that would require Sonny being a decent human being & that ain’t happened since 1996. And if Olivia still goes around looking all doe-eyed & wanting to screw Sonny after he JUST BLASTED HER SON (I am assuming that is what occurs), I will, well, I will hate her more than I already do! Log in to Reply doctormo77 January 23, 2010 [quote=GH LOVER] This Promo looks So Good … GH is becoming to be my greek tragedy show …. the Mob is the Greek tragedy in GH [/quote] I wonder if the GH writer’s room contains a collection of greek tragedies. Love it or hate it, this is the type of material that allows Maurice Bernard to shine. Log in to Reply mayjadjor January 23, 2010 Come on, Miry… What mob boss would let an undercover cop who penetrated his organization have a chance to run away? Especially when he already has enough evidence that could send him to prison? That would be totally unbelievable. Log in to Reply FaisonFanInTexas January 23, 2010 UGH!!! Hate Brenda. OVER RATED! FUNNY AS HELL BUT NOT TRUE-Jason and Sonny ruined AJ?! Was SONNY driving the car that got Jason braindamaged?

I wish they would kill Jason off the show for good because ,really, there is NO NEED for him anymore!!!!! Log in to Reply maxsmom January 23, 2010 Liz predates Brenda, so she wouldn’t be an attempt to replace her but who did follow and get paired with both of Brenda’s lovers? but didn’t work with either Log in to Reply discodan January 23, 2010 so……. how did this get back to Brenda? Log in to Reply samrocks January 23, 2010 Liz predates Brenda, so she wouldn’t be an attempt to replace her but who did follow and get paired with both of Brenda’s lovers? but didn’t work with either Maxsmom…(Cute new pic, by the way). This Brenda-bot crap pisses me off EVERY time. Umm…that would be Sam, Carly, AND Kate. But since Sam is the only BRUNETTE of the bunch, then it must ONLY be her that’s the recast attempt, right? And wait, Brenda was torn between two totally different men, so anyone ELSE who was torn between two totally different too must ALSO be a Brenda-bot. Sorry nuEmily (NL), Rebecca, nuLoo (JMB), nuMaxie (KS), nuKrissy (LA), Olivia, and Claudia – you’re all Brenda-bots, too. Good grief! It would appear that only DIANE is safe from this claim. Sorry, but Sonny and Jax are two STARS of the show, which is why they get first dibs at any new character. Jason is, too, but TPTB would NEVER pit the two against each other for the same woman, which is why they’ve fought primarily over each other’s SIBLINGS. (Oh wait, since Sam went from Sonny to Jason, and Carly went from Jason to Sonny, is Sam a Brenda-bot or a CARLY-bot?) It’s the same with Carly and Loo for the new male characters. I think one of the main reasons that VM has been able to remain so esteemed in Brenda fans’ minds is BECAUSE she left, but RiH and SJB have shown us just how LOW Guza can take a potentially awesome character (and great actor) when he chooses. Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin January 23, 2010 Because Disco, Brenda is a convenient way to bash Sam. Brenda was a great character, so is Sam, and they only similiarities are the hair color and the love interest. Sonny and jax are two of the leads. You bring in a top caliber actress you want to put them with leads. The had Alexis faux married to Jax and she had a child with Sonny. Carly has been with both men. Kate was with both men. They toyed with the idea of Skye and Sonny, but apparently the actors dont like each other in real life. Even Olivia has been tied in to both men. Its a silly comparison. My point is that the show needs another shake it up character. Brenda stirs things up when she is around and PC could use that because many hate the waffle queens boobzilla and Lizard "aw shucks I didnt mean to boink your brother" Webber.

Log in to Reply maxsmom January 23, 2010 Samrocks, thanks, he’s 20 months on Friday, 23 and 1/2 years younger than my firstborn, my only other. Log in to Reply rskuggs January 24, 2010 The thing that has always bugged me about this entire SL is that the clues that Sonny and Dante are father and Son have been dropped in the lap of both of these two and they have yet to even question the possibility. neither one of these two are stupid and yet when hint after hint after hint is placed in front of the characters,neither one has even looked at what is right in front of them. Dante appears to be very sharp and intuitive,why would he not wonder after seeing Sonny and Olivia together,especially after the Christmas Dinner and hearing the stories about their past,that maybe Sonny is his father? Even Johnny,after finding out about Dante being a cop and being Olivia’s Son,should have connected the dots. It really makes the characters look really stupid that NO ONE has made the connection. Upon hearing the news that Sonny is his dad,i GUARANTEE you’ll her the line “Why didn’t i see it,it was so obvious” standard cliche writing 101 Log in to Reply cheryl85 January 24, 2010 Best promo ABC has had for a soap in a long time. I’m not the biggest GH fan but I know I’m going to watch this. Log in to Reply Miry January 24, 2010 mayjadjor: As opposed to all the SUPER believable stuff that already does on on this soap? I am just saying that Dominante has done a lot for Sonny, cop or not, & that should have earned him something… but then again we know all the sacrifice that Jason has made for Sonny & he still gets treated like dirt esp. when he doesn’t agree with Sonny. Plus, I am sure that Sonny knows that Dominante isn’t working on his own, & so he has probably given that evidence to others… so Sonny shooting him in his living room just makes him even MORE guilty. season: Exactly. And wasn’t Reese FBI?, but he knew that about her so I guess it was okay. All I know is that if I was Dominante I would NOT CARE if Sonny was my father, if he was not actually responsible for my father-figure’s death, his kids are my siblings, my mother is still in love with him, blah, blah, blah… dude SHOT ME. He would be in jail or dead. Those would be his choices. We wouldn’t be able to bond over Italian food & Yankees some time in the future. No thanks, Dad, You. Shot. Me.

Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 January 25, 2010 LOL, Miry, also, great point Samrocks, Vanessa probably don’t want to come back because Guza can ruin a character in a New York Minute.
