How ridiculous can General Hospital get??
Now Sonny is not only teaming up with arch enemy Anthony Zacchara, but Anthony is going to insist on him marrying Claudia to seal the deal?
ICKkkkkkk!
A. I can’t stand the mob wars to begin with and
B. The mob keeps dominating storylines and mob characters just keep being added.
Let’s see….
There’s Sonny and Jason, all the Zaccharas and now Karpov, the Russian mobster.
Where does it end?
Sonny and Anthony

I just can’t believe that writers are pitting Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason (Steve Burton) against each other and aligning Sonny with his mortal enemy, Zacchara.
It’s just stupid.
That would never happen.
But, even more than that, it’s boring and not at all the reason why I watch soaps.
I hate the whole mob thing.
The only thing mob-related that has been entertaining is the entrance of Vincent Pastore as Maxiumus Giambetti, father of Max and Milo.

Pastore has provided some laugh-out-loud scenes through Maximus’ interactions with characters Diane (Carolyn Hennesy), Carly (Laura Wright) and Claudia (Sarah Brown).
Other than that bright spot, it’s thumbs down for the mob storylines.
Then there’s that whole counterfeit drug storyline….How long has that s/l been dragging on?
Now with Jerry Jax (Sebastian Roche) framing Sam (Kelly Monaco) for the counterfeit drugs, I guess it’s going to drag on even longer.
Really not looking forward to seeing where that’s going.
All I can say is thank goodness that Tracy and Luke are back!

Did you catch those scenes Wednesday on General Hospital with Diane/Max and Alexis/Jerry at the Metro Court?
I tell you, anytime Diane and Alexis are together lately, they never fail to make me laugh.
I can’t help it.
It happens before I even realize it.
I’m sitting there watching their scenes and I hear myself laughing.
Take Wednesday.
Prim and proper super-lawyer Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) sits at the Metro Court bar and sometimes evil but super-charming Jerry Jacks getsthisclosetokissingher, when BFF and fellow super-lawyer Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) pops up from behind the bar and screams “Now who has an embarrassing attachment to a bad boy?”
You see, Alexis has been trying to dissuade Diane from dating Max Giambatti, the mob bodyguard with a heart of gold.
I just love Derk Cheetwood as Max. Always have.
And when he is paired with Hennesy, the two are just hysterical.
Meanwhile, Alexis is incredibly attracted to Jerry (Sebastian Roche)…..You know, the one who masterminded and terrorized the hostages in the Metro Court crisis under the identity of Mr. Craig.
After Diane breaks up the kiss between Alexis and Jerry – a few minutes later Diane and Max are smooching at a nearby table…..So Alexis marches over to Diane and tells her that she’s making a spectacle of herself.
And from there, the two get into a spirited discussion of who is with the baddest bad boy.
Diane launches into a diatribe about how she and Max were discussing baseball – to which Alexis retorts that Diane’s mind has turned to mush.
Never to be outdone, Diane lashed out with perhaps the best line of the day.
“Well at least I’m not choking on my own hypocrisy! How dare you come over and criticize my relationship with Max when you’re sitting over there canoodling with Mr. Craig, the Metro Court Hostage Taker!”
Touche!
