'General Hospital' Spoilers: Mob Revenge Leaves Sam, Sonny And Garvey Near Death

General Hospital spoilers reveal that Garvey (Rick Ravanello) will soon find himself at death's door because of his revenge scheme after kidnapping both Spencer Cassadine (Nicolas Bechtel) and Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst). However, Garvey isn't the only one who will be at GH fighting for his life. By the end of next week, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Sam Morgan (Kelly Monaco) will also be in a life or death struggle thanks to injury and illness.

The texted photo should clear Valentin, but how long until Sonny communicates with Jason? Checking Valentin's phone and knowing Valentin was with Laura Spencer (Genie Francis) and then Jason exonerates him, but Valentin won't soon forget this insult. That revelation concludes Valentin's kidnapping, but another is coming by the end of the week. Spencer will emerge safe and sound from his captivity because there are new spoilers from Soap Opera Digest for the first week of August about him with his grandma.

By Thursday, July 27, less is also held captive and by the end of the week, shots ring out. Sam and Garvey will both be at the construction site, and although Garvey wants the rival mobster dead, it's Sam that puts a bullet in him, but Garvey knows all about it. The problem is, neither Sam nor Garvey will report Sonny's whereabouts. Both want him dead, and both Sam and Garvey are facing medical crises of their own, so Sonny is the last thing on their minds. Liz won't be missing too long.

Sonny is shot and in a pit covered in a tarp with the intent to let him die there. Garvey is shot and taken to GH, and when Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) demands to know where Sonny is, the vengeful mobster tells her that Sonny is already dead. Sonny's not dead yet, but it's touch and go. Sam can't tell Carly anything because she's fighting for her life and Garvey is whisked into surgery. Sonny tries to hang on while his demons haunt him because he's trapped in a claustrophobic circumstance (his kryptonite) and left to die.

This umbrella story will wind to a close just in time for another to begin when Steve Burton returns to General Hospital. In a new interview with Soap Opera Digest, writers Jean Passanante and Shelly Altman promise that Burton's new character's resemblance to Jason Morgan, pre-reconstructive facial surgery will be noticed. That indicates that from the outset, Burton will not be playing Jason, although it might be a winding story where he has amnesia or some other soapy sort of circumstance. We'll see Burton's first episode in August.
