General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that the Corinthos family will face more drama. Sonny (Maurice Benard) has been doing his best to handle Mike’s (Max Gail) recent diagnosis. It’s been tough on both of them, but they’re trying to hang in there.
Mike had a great night when Sonny pulled some strings and recreated Luke’s. Nostalgia was a big help in bringing some memories to light. Unfortunately, Alzheimer’s is relentless and the peace just can’t last.
General Hospital spoilers say Mike’s condition will get much worse soon enough. He’ll experience a tough decline during the week of April 9-13. What will Mike’s next episode entail? Sonny’s tried to do a better job of keeping an eye on Mike lately, but he could easily lose track of him again. Poor Mike could feel helpless and alone in an unfamiliar place.
Of course, Mike could even feel that way at Sonny’s place. He recently told Sonny that he should meet his son. That was a brutal scene for GH fans! It was just as hard for Sonny to accept that Mike didn’t know him in that moment.
Mike may face a similar scenario before long. Will he forget where he is and who his family members are? It’s common for Alzheimer’s patients to experience some paranoia. Since they sometimes forget the people closest to them, they tend to think their loved ones are out to harm them.
General Hospital is trying to play this storyline as realistically as possible. They’ll have to show the ugly toll that Alzheimer’s can take on a family. Mike will likely break down during his next memory lapse. He might even lash out violently if he feels terrified in a certain situation. Mike won’t realize what he’s doing.
As the stress builds, it’ll bring some real challenges for the Corinthos clan. Will Mike become too much for Sonny to handle? They may consider putting Mike in a facility if he gets dangerous. Sonny hoped for more time with a lucid father, but he may not get his wish. It sounds like GH intends to work through this story quickly.
On the bright side, Max Gail is earning plenty of praise for his performance. He’s really knocking it out of the park, so he should get a solid Emmy reel out of all his heartbreaking scenes.
