Monday’s General Hospital was all about losing Oscar to the brain cancer that took his young life. Or was it? When Sonny reached out to Kim because he knew what she was going through, it was the scene some fans have been waiting nearly two years to see.
Wait, how could fans be waiting to see a scene like that between these two when Oscar (Garren Stitt) just passed away, you may ask? More likely, you already know the answer. There truly can’t be one longtime viewer out there watching who didn’t realize that all that was on Sonny’s (Maurice Benard) mind was losing Morgan.
The pain Sonny felt losing Morgan was so intense that he could feel what Kim (Tamara Braun) was feeling. But, for longtime fans of the show, this scene went so much deeper.
What these longtime fans know and felt intrinsically was that this was Sonny sharing his grief about Morgan — with the woman who gave birth to Morgan.
Don’t get us wrong — Soap Hub loves Laura Wright in the role of Carly Corinthos. But when Morgan was born, Braun was the one who played Carly. (Granted, Sonny did shoot Carly in the head when she was in labor. But, it was an accident.)
So, Monday’s end scene felt like watching the two actors perform on two different planes — at the same time. We’re sure the performers were well aware of the moment they were sharing and the many layers and complexity that went into what they were saying to each other.
It certainly got those of us here at Soap Hub talking, wanting to give the two actors kudos on truly blowing us away with those beautifully crafted, poignant moments that honored Oscar, Morgan, the show, and veteran fans of General Hospital. Well done!
