Soaps are all about secrets, and it looks like next week, one of the biggest in recent GENERAL HOSPITAL history will finally come out! According to Soaps In Depth magazine, crime boss Sonny is about to have his world rocked by the truth about his henchman, Dominic!
“Dominic’s keeping a lot of things under wraps,” shares the mag’s executive editor, Richard M. Simms. “For one thing, Dominic’s an undercover cop who is out to bust Sonny. But what makes this whole mess really interesting is that Sonny is Dominic’s dad, and neither guy knows it!”
But what good’s a secret if it doesn’t come out in the most dramatic fashion possible, right?
“Years ago, GH had a famous sequence that’s known among fans as ‘clink/boom,’” explains Simms. “It involved the happiest of moments, a wedding, playing out at the exact same time as a terribly tragic death. The ‘clink’ was champagne glasses touching, the ‘boom’ was a car exploding. Ever since, the show has periodically played with similar scenarios. This week, it’ll happen again thanks to a baby’s christening taking place on one side of town as a shooting happens on the other. There will be one big secret coming out before the shooting and another after.”
As if that weren’t enough excitement for you, the magazine’s new ABC issue also will reveal the results of its first-ever Supercouple Smackdown, including whether fans picked GH’s Sam or Liz as the woman they want to see with Jason. “Let’s just say that both pairings have very big, very vocal fan bases,” says Simms. “No matter what, one side is going to be unhappy. Because this is truly a situation where you can’t please everyone. Hey, there’s only so much Jason to go around!”
