hospital in general In light of spoilers, it appears that Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) has accrued some experience, but viewers have also romanticized a character who would never receive such praise and adoration in real life. Even though the show is a soap drama, let’s examine Sonny’s persona more closely by dissecting him like a figure in a carving. Even the toughest professionals in the business would be sick to their stomachs reading about Sonny’s previous scandalous relationships, offenses, and attacks on his own family. Why then do we act as though he has a heart of gold when in reality he’s more like the original stone cold?
General Hospital Spoilers — Sonny Has Given the Shirt Off His Back to So Many
Sonny has always been eager to lend a helping hand to those he holds dear and to anyone who makes him think of a youthful version of himself. Here come those like Dex Heller (Evan Hofer). Because he wants to shape them into the mafia’s future in the same way that Joe Scully (Robert Miano) mentored him before he became the crime kingpin he is now, Sonny is an obvious target for these types.
Even though all he’s really doing is hiring hit men and rewarding them for doing their jobs, Sonny views this as some sort of pastime and passing down of family knowledge. However, Sonny does adore his family, even those who live on the periphery like his relative Gladys Corbin (Bonnie Burroughs).
But if they rub him the wrong way, he won’t think twice about killing any of them. Keep an eye out to see what Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) experiences shortly. Don’t forget the moment Sonny killed his own son, Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna). Even though he didn’t know it was his son at the time, he continued to use that defense even after finding out after the fact. Everyone in Sonny’s universe is merely existing for him as a means of playing his game; that is the kind of guy he is.

Therefore, it shouldn’t be shocking that Sonny has a psychiatric condition. Being diagnosed with bipolar disorder directly affected Maurice Benard, and at times having to portray a character who has the same condition has been both a gift and a curse. Sonny, however, is not your normal person with this condition.
He is also a serial killer who distributes narcotics to the community he claims to be trying to safeguard while developing strong relationships with those in authority, such as Mayor Laura Collins (Genie Francis). The majority of us would never put up with a conflict of interest like this in our municipal leaders.
General Hospital Spoilers — Why Do We Romanticize This Man?
Sonny was a young child who struggled to avoid mischief and was in need of a parent figure badly. Instead, he discovered a field that helped him become a violent individual who had little regard for the emotions of others, particularly those of women. Sonny would laugh at that because he sometimes adores ladies too much. However, we shouldn’t ignore the fact that he began selling narcotics to young people when Karen Wexler (Marie Wilson) performed at his strip club.
He has abused numerous women while saying he loves them, and they continued to be with him. As we enter a new age that teaches washing away the crimes of the past, his portrayal of a tortured man who just can’t help what he does but is deserving of love because he “didn’t intend it” and has wonderful dimples might need some finessing.
