Dumbest A** General Hospital Plot Twist Ever: Johnny is Really Claudia's....(SPOILER ALERT)






Mother of Medusa's hairdresser, Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati came just in the NICK of time to save General Hospital from Jill Farren Phelps and Garin Wolf. This week's Soap Opera Weekly reveals the insane plot twist that Johnny Zacharra (Brandon Barash) is really the late Claudia Corinthos' (Sarah Brown) son, not her brother! What in high hell?!

Barash is only four years younger than Brown in real life. When exactly was Claudia supposed to get pregnant with him, at kindergarten? Jesus take the wheel... To read more about this stank plot twist, pick up the Jan. 31 issue of SOW.

Completely ridic, but I don't think this is out of thin air. Useless twist since Claudia's dead and was, due to so many circumstances, a FAIL of a character.

Just when I thought GH couldn't get any worse...

So, will Claudia still be Anthony's biological daughter?. So, Johnny's mother and sister? And why will this plot twist matter if Claudia is not returning? Why does any of this matter? Why am I asking questions? Wink

Ugh. Can't believe OLTL was canceled and this show allowed to stay on the air.

There were rumors that Johnny was supposed to have been Trevor's son back in 2009 before the man died.

When did she have him? Seriously was she 5 or 10? Cause I don't think you can have babies that young! The writers must think we are idiots I mean I get that its a soap and we are supposed to overlook some of this crap but this is ridiculous.

I don't know how Ron and Frank are going to be able to repair this show, it has been so hard to watch lately and plot twists like this are helping.....And OLTL was cancelled?

This ranks right up there when on GL it was revealed that Amanda was Alan's sister and not his daughter. It was a waste of time then and it is now.
Garin and Jill needed to be out a long time ago.

Another reason I'm glad I'm watching Springer until the reboot happens onscreen.

It's funny. I thought this is where they were going at the time Claudia was on. I always felt there was some explicit reason why Anthony held such animosity towards Claudia and considered her a slut.

I certainly hope they write of Anthony. That is a character I cannot stand.

I always thought Johnny was supposed to be Claudia's son and one of the reasons I didnt like BB as Johnny in the beginning is that he was clearly too old to play Johnny as written. Brandon is a handsome man but he looks his age while SJB would be more believable as his twin than his mom. It's sadly not uncommon(I was a teen mom)for a girl to have a baby at 14/15 so if Johnny was 21 when he joined the canvas as I believe the character was written, Claudia could have been 35, a few years older than SJB but not over the top like KSul playing more than a decade older than her real age.

EET visited SJB's panel at the GH fanfest and has discussed some of her disatisfaction with the role as written vs. how it was described. I wouldnt be surprised if Claudia having been sexually abused was one of those issues. One of the reasons I liked Claudia is I always felt she was acting from a place of pain.

This is my long winded way of saying, I dont find this "twist" surprising except for the ages of the actors.

So, did the new regime nix this as soon as they walked in the door? We are not getting this story are we? It's so bizarre, but makes sense at how much Anthony hated Claudia.

If faulty memory serves, there were LOTS of hints that Johnny was Claudia's son when Claudia was on the air.

I would not be able to give the exact date...but I am pretty sure Claudia in one of her rants with Anthony, said that she was nine years older than Johnny. That she was just a kid protecting him from Anthony. He was like 6, and she was a teenager when Anthony banished her from the house and sent her away. She would have had to be nine or ten having him based on GH's own scripts....Like I said...I don't have exact dates...but I remember paying attention to this part of the story, because I thought it was important. I don't know how they think they can sell this twist. The characters ages aren't even close to being able to do this.

At least when Sam became Alexis's daughter it was possible for Alexis to have had Sam as a teen, with her age....this is a real stretch....

I do have to say that regardless of how ridiculous (in the daytime world with unaborted babies and doppelgangers and ice princesses - not very), I would have found that compelling. I enjoyed it when it was revealed that Anton was Corvina's son way back when on AMC and those actors were middle of the road at best. Sara Brown would have been killer to watch. If they were going to bring that up now then what a snoozefest. Every character or duo on this show is an island.

Former GH writer (Currently at B&B) Michele Val Jean Had this as her FB Status:

Wait... Claudia is Johnny's MOTHER?! This is a joke, right? What was she... five?!

it actually makes 100% sense.

Claudia was always incredibly fiercely protective of Johnny, more than a brother/sister bond.

Either way, sister or mother, all I have to say is that if Sonny ever gets his way and kills Johnny off, I hope Claudia crawls out of her grave and takes her revenge on the stumpster.

Phelps/Wolf are just as nutty as Frons/Guza was. LW, like anyone is going to be loyal to who gets you a job. Same for Nancy Lee Grahn. Both were kept on canvas thru thick and thin. (I love Nancy's twitter and follow her regularly) LW's Carly is a character who walks into a room and screams the same crap over and over. I still do not agree with either about Phelps, never did. I was past fan of GL and we all know how GL's course was altered forever during her regime.

I hope the fans from GH let the new team work their magic and don't pounce on every move. I don't see the show on longer than a few months unless a miracle happens. #1 priority is to return sanity.

This might have mattered if Claudia were still alive. As it is, it's kinda a non-issue, isn't it? Unless the biggie is whos the daddy? Cause surely they aren't going the incest route, ick.

I'm betting they'll make Trevor his father to move him away from the mob and being a Zacharra. This way they can usher Brandon off the show alive.

Okay, I have a quick fix for this terrible mistake. Kill off Johnny and Anthony and send them to the grave with Claudia. They aren't necessary. I hope Johnny kills Anthony and I don't really care who kills Johnny, but let him go too. I know he has his fans and I feel bad for them but this show wouldn't be missing anything if he was gone.

This is just STUPID! I know it was the plan all along, but they screwed up big time in casting when they went with Brandon Barash as Johnny. He's way too old to be SJB's son. Its just a huge joke. I always thought it was going to be revealed a long time ago that Johnny was Trevor's son from a time when he raped Claudia. I know Claudia was a failed character, but I thought SJB was AMAZING in the role. Casting blew it if it was really the plan all along. I'm saying Frank and Ron need to come in and scrap this whole damn family and we can pretend that it never happened.

@JBJ: You are right... & there were always questions about why she was soo attached to him & concerned about his (love) life, more so than a sister would. She would always "mother" him.

This story is a complete insult to Sarah Brown, who in NO way looks old enough to be the mother of a late 20sh/early 30ish year old man! Come on, now.....

And I agree, since Claudia's dead, why does it matter now? Unless they're planning on resurrecting her from the dead. And even then, I still don't see Sarah Brown being the mother to a 30-something year old man! Redonkulous.

The sooner Johnny and his lunatic father are off the show the better. GH does not need them; the show is way too mob-centric as it is. They could usher Sonny off the show at the same time in a big, guns blazing shoot out with all them of them dying riddled with bullets.

I am pretty much done with gh anyway but I love how this is such a travesty while the soap press including this blog raved about the main source that gutted GH Bob Guza.Maybe had the soap press not fawned over his ass like crazed fangurls and criticized anyone who could not see his greatness, gh might still exist. All Garin Wolf did was carry on his legacy but hell throw a couple of popular vets on screen and a few castoffs from oltl and all is well. Good luck in getting those millions of lapsed gh viewers to tune into a canvas filled with unfamiliar faces, no sense of family, or heart. Oh but heck Jason and Sonny and Carly are still on so all is good. The zaccaras like the bensonhurst trash just another useless vapid waste of nothing.
