General Hospital spoilers reveal yet another mob war brewing in Port Charles between the Corinthos Crime Family (aka Corinthos Coffee) and the Novaks from New York City, who we assume were the Novaks we knew years ago when Ryan’s Hope was a beloved soap still airing on ABC.
General Hospital Spoilers: Too Many Bullets Over Port Charles
Every time you turn around, someone is getting shot on the docks or in a warehouse in Port Charles. Sometimes a warehouse will blow up and sometimes a bar will blow up, but there’s an awful lot of violence in this not-so-sleepy New York town, with Jason (Steve Burton) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) usually in the thick of it, as well as the infamous Five Families who apparently run the show.
Now that Carly (Laura Wright) and Jason managed to defeat Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) and get him sent back to jail, they need a reason to get married so they need another crime family and another mob war. They just can’t seem to live any other way. If they can’t be in some sort of criminal war, what would Carly and Jason even do? And what will Sonny do when he eventually remembers who he is and returns to Port Charles? At least it keeps things interesting, right?
But This Is A Hospital Show
Of course, there are other ways to make a soap interesting than to have constant shootouts and violence. Stories can be based on character and they can also be based more in the hospital the soap is named for, and we don’t mean when a shooting victim ends up in the emergency room.
What would happen if when Sonny returns he realizes he liked his non-mob life as Mike and wants to try to truly get out of the business just like Julian (William deVry) did? How compelling and fascinating would that be after all these years? Why is it a given that Sonny has to be in the mob with each story being the same as Sonny, Carly, and Jason put the people they love in danger? So, should GH take a break from the mob wars and constant violence so other stories can come to the forefront? Let us know in the General Hospital poll below.
