Bryan Craig has been an outstanding addition to Port Charles since debuting as General Hospital's Morgan Corinthos. From day one, he held his own opposite the show's big league sluggers, like Maurice Benard (Sonny), Laura Wright (Carly) and Maura West (Ava).
Craig was so good in fact, he was Daytime Confidential's No. 1 newcomer among the 10 Best Soap Opera Newbies of 2013. That's why it's sad to see what's happened to Morgan just one year later.
On this week's Daytime Confidential podcast, the DC gang agreed Morgan is being monumentally wasted in storyline wilderness with Michael (Chad Duell) and Kiki (Kristen Alderson). As Jamey Giddens pointed out, it's just a fact of life that sometimes younger brothers surpass their older brothers. Morgan has certainly surpassed Michael on General Hospital.
Morgan's scenes last week with Ava showcased the explosive chemistry Craig and West still share. It was also the ultimate reminder of why Craig and Morgan are worthy of so much more than second-string plots with teenyboppers.
With Nina (Michelle Stafford), Sabrina (Teresa Castillo) and Sonny all posing threats to the woman he still obviously loves and/or her unborn child, now is the perfect time for an "AMor" reunion. Ava and Morgan are cut from the same cloth. They get each other. Why would he want to be sniffing around Kiki again, when he can reconnect with her fabulously-erotic mother?
Do you think Morgan needs to reunite with Ava and return to General Hospital's big leagues? Sound off in the comments!
