It's an exciting time for General Hospital fans. As we head into February sweeps, big things are on the horizons for some of our favorite Port Charles residents. GH's co-head writers, Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor, previewed what's to come in Port Chuck in an interview with

For one, the scribes teased there's a "twist nobody will see coming," but refused to elaborate. They did expand on some of the storylines hitting our screens this month, though, starting with the fallout from Sonny's (Maurice Benard) presumed death for Cyrus (Jeff Kober). 

Van Etten teased:
