Alternate General Hospital: The "What If" Universe!

What if Sonny was really an upstanding law abiding citizen? What if Dante and Sam were really married? The "what if" universe of General Hospital. Read more here---->>>

General Hospital celebrated Maurice Bernard's 25th anniversary with a Sonny Corinthos centric episode.

What if Sonny didn't have that first kill? What if he never fired the gun? What if Sonny never joined the mob. What if....

In this alternate universe of General Hospital, Sonny is an upstanding and law abiding citizen. He is a Sergeant. He's married to Olivia and they live in Brooklyn, New York. And Sonny wears plaid shirts!

In Port Charles, after the death of Frank Smith, Julian and Ava took over Port Charles. Jason "Smith"  a hit man but this Jason wears suits. This Jason is involved Ava. Yes Java!

AJ Quartermaine is alive and well (unfortunately AJ is only mentioned and remains off-screen) and married to Carly. He and Carly hit the booze often and hard. Michael has moved to Singapore.

Jordan is an agent for the DEA. Alexis is the District Attorney. Anna is the Police Commissioner. But basically is a shell and has been since Robin died of AIDS at the age of nineteen (that hurt).

Dante and Sam are married. Shipping alert in GH's alternate universe. "Dam!" (Dante and Sam) was all kinds of nice.  And it was all kinds of nice having Dom Zamprogna  back on screen and him being front burner for a change.

Sonny and Olivia come to Port Charles to visit their son, Dante. Dante is a crime lord and works for Julian and Ava. We learn Dante is working undercover for the DEA. He turns on and turns in Julian and Ava. But it's not for a virtuous purpose as in ridding Port Charles of criminals and murderers. It's for a more selfish and self-centered purpose; so he can become the kingpin of Port Charles.

Sonny and Dante's relationship in the alternate universe mirrors their real one in the beginning. They are at odds. But Sonny is the one wanting Dante to change his criminal ways. Sonny chose to resist a life of crime and wants Dante to do the same. However, Dante is happy just as he is. Olivia is stuck in between the two. Sam wants out of that life. Dante tells her she can leave if she's not happy. He can easily find someone to replace her. Sam leaves him and his ring for parts unknown, maybe Montana.

In the culmination of the alternate universe episode, Dante lures Jason to the docks to kill him because Jason is more loyal to the Jerome's and knows he will be a problem. Sonny who arrives after Dante shoots Jason, implores Dante to stop to make a different choice. Sonny and Dante argue and then struggle for the gun. During the struggle, the gun accidentally goes off and Dante is shot. Olivia arrives and is horrified that Sonny has shot his son.

Then the episode returns to the pivotal point of the beginning, where Sonny holds his first victim at gunpoint. We also have Sonny's current father, Mike, a modern day Sonny and a younger Sonny, played by Maurice's real life son, Joshua. Mike, as in the beginning of the episode, wants to talk the younger Sonny out of firing the gun. But the modern day Sonny tells Mike Sonny must make the decision for himself.

The younger Sonny takes the shot. To be honest, not exactly sure what the message is with the younger Sonny taking the shot. Would love to hear your ideas on that.

Anyway, in the episode there are some familiar themes Ava and Carly hate each other, Jason is still a hit man and Laura Wright's hair is still flawless. There are some themes that we wished were in the real universe of General Hospital; Don back on our screens, Ava running Port Charles and a Java pairing. They also gave Carson and Jasam STANS some moments to smile at. And that was a nice Freaky Friday twist with Dante and Sonny.The stand alone episode did have social media talking.

All in all, it was a nice tribute to Maurice Bernard and his 25 years on General Hospital. General Hospital should consider doing more for other actors. They could do one or two a year. 

What did you think of the Sonny centric episode? Do you think General Hospital should do the same for other actors? If so, who would you like to see featured?
