Spencer’s kidnapping pulls Sonny back into a life of crime next week on General Hospital (GH), which pulls Sam in a million directions as she fears for her family’s life and remains determined to “get rid of” Sonny.
He is more insistent than ever that she get some medical treatment because there is clearly something more wrong with her than just an iron deficiency.
According to the July 31 issue of Soap Opera Digest, Jason is forced to get Sam emergency help and from there, they find out what’s really wrong with her. It turns out she has a real condition, but GH writers are being cryptic about what it could be.
From the start, “we did know [what her diagnosis would be],” Head Writer Shelly Altman told Digest.
“We knew the desired effect that we wanted and then we searched for the medical condition that could create that effect.
“We usually work in that way and we did, in fact, find not only something that would give the symptoms that we wanted, but was uniquely suited to an experience Sam has had.”
Now, does her diagnosis and treatment come before she does something rash to Sonny (Maurice Benard)? Tune in and find out.
