General Hospital experienced a lot of drama last week. From the episode with Morgan to the reality of living the mob life, the Corinthos family was rocked to the core. February sweeps is wrapping up for General Hospital, and a lot is going to change because of it. The next big event will be May sweeps, and the writers are already well on their way to making sure it will top February. With Monday quickly approaching, General Hospital fans are waiting on pins and needles to find out what will happen next.
The upcoming week is going to bring new problems for the characters on General Hospital. While everyone is still dealing with the fall out from the botched gun shipment deal, other characters are going to be facing their own challenges. According to We Love Soaps, General Hospital fans can expect a busy week. Tracy (Jane Elliot) will be experiencing more episodes dealing with her mystery condition. In fact, the biggest setback yet will happen. It is unclear what is happening to her, but speculation is that she may be suffering from strokes. General Hospital fans have been discussing possibilities, and dementia is also another theory. Whatever the issue is, Tracy is not ready to tell anyone about it. Her questions for Hayden (Rebecca Budig) this week are going to shed some more light on the Rachel situation, but her health crisis may get in the way.
Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) have been one of the hottest couples for General Hospital. Their on and off relationship has kept viewers interested in the show for decades, and now there is more tension building. Carly is upset that Sonny didn’t tell her he was able to walk. While that may be the surface reason, it seems that the fact that he did it to keep his enemies at bay is rubbing his wife the wrong way. General Hospital fans have watched as Carly supported Sonny through all of the mob stuff, including Michael being shot and almost killed. This attitude about it being too much for her to handle is a little unsettling. She will be hitting rock bottom this week on General Hospital, and it will be a must-see.
Now that Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Nathan (Ryan Paevey) are both on the same page about marriage, there is a secret that is going to rock their world. General Hospital has been working to make this new couple a huge hit, and it looks like it may be working. “Naxie” fans have come out of the woodwork in droves, and they likely will have a storyline that is worthy this week. Maxie will overhear Nathan calling out for Claudette. According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, General Hospital fans can expect Nathan to lie to Maxie. While he may regret it later, lying to her is not the way to go to keep her. Look for this storyline to drag out longer than just the upcoming week.
Ava (Maura West) will be reaching her limit of stability on General Hospital this week. She is finally realizing what her lifestyle is costing her children, especially with the reality of what happened to Kiki (Hayley Erin). The prognosis on Kiki isn’t the best, and Ava will have a complete breakdown. While all of this is happening, Sonny comes to the rescue. He shares an understanding with Ava, which may mean progress with Avery in the future. The uncertainty surrounding Kiki and dealing with Morgan losing touch with reality has Sonny on edge. Next week on General Hospital, things are going to be incredibly stressful for Sonny and Ava, especially where their children are concerned.
