General Hospital’s Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) didn’t have much to say when the truth came out about his son. Michael seemed to be in shock whereas Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) immediately responded. Should Michael have been more vocal? Should Chad have been given more of an opportunity for an Emmy with this performance?
General Hospital Spoilers – Michael Corinthos Was Literally Stunned
General Hospital’s Michael was truly stunned by this revelation. Michael knew that Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier) was capable of anything but no one could have expected this. Brad Cooper (Parry Shen) knew all along who Wiley Cooper Jones (Theo and Erik Olson) was and yet let Michael be the godfather to his own son.
Michael thought that Brad cared about him as a person. Michael thought Brad respected him enough to want him in his son’s life. Michael had no idea that Brad was evil enough to dangle his child in front of him but no reveal the truth.
GH Spoilers – Michael Corinthos Needed Time To Process
General Hospital’s Michael had to be reliving all of the comments Nelle had made for over a year referring to their child. Nelle had often referred to her son in ways that would hint that he was alive. Michael thought for over a year that Nelle was just taunting him. Michael had to be thinking he was stupid for not putting this together long before now. Michael and Wiley have always shared a deep connection and now he knows why. Michael had no time to process any of these. Michael had to be too stunned to immediately react.
General Hospital Spoilers – Carly Corinthos Had To Push For The Truth
General Hospital’s Carly was the only person who seemed to be able to utter a word. When Lucas Jones (Ryan Carnes) announced who Wiley really was, nobody spoke. Somebody had to make sense out of what Lucas was saying. Lucas was not making a lot of sense and somebody needed to get the whole story out of Brad. Carly simply did what no one else seemed capable of doing. Carly got the answers that everyone needed. Carly did nothing that any other mother would not have done for their son who has just been blindsided.

GH Spoilers – Michael Corinthos Rallied In The End
General Hospital’s Michael finally had his say in the end. Michael told Brad how he had hurt everyone including Willow Tait (Katelyn MacMullen) whose child has been dead for over a year. However, Michael’s tirade was cut short when Brad suddenly remembered that Nelle was on her way to Willow’s apartment. However, fans wanted more. Fans wanted Michael to have more of a rant to Brad. Fans wanted Michael to punch Brad. Fans wanted more of a reaction.
It seems that even waiting well over a year for this reveal fans still did not get the payoff they wanted. A stronger finish out of Michael would have been so much more believable. Hopefully, fans get a bigger payoff with Michael attempting to keep Nelle away from Wiley.
