General Hospital Spoilers: Is Michael Behind The Hook That’s Angling For His Father?
Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) hasn’t been happy with his father, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard), in some time. Following Sonny’s return from Nixon Falls, it became apparent to Michael that he wasn’t dealing with the same father he once knew, and likewise, Michael is no longer the same son his dad has always known. His toughened exterior isn’t a charade. Michael has grown cold to his father, and he’s determined to clean up the Corinthos name by taking out the trash that is Sonny’s criminal enterprise. Could Michael have more sinister plans in store for his dear old drug-peddling dad?
General Hospital Spoilers — Who Wants To Hurt Sonny Corinthhos?
Determined to avenge the pain and suffering his family has endured because of Sonny and Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros), Michael could be planning to take his dad out, once he’s done taking him down. The Hook has ravaged Port Charles and they are clearly targeting Sonny and the people he loves.
Sure, Sonny is a man with many enemies, but most of them are made in the drug trade and want to overtake his territory. Those enemies want to blow up Sonny’s warehouses and supply. They’re not interested in rearranging the insides of his attorney, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy), or claiming the life of Sonny’s innocent cousin, Brando Corbin (Johnny Wactor). This isn’t about business; it’s personal. Who could want retaliation on Sonny in such a personal way that drives Sonny crazy as he tries to uncover whodunnit?
GH Spoilers — Michael Corinthos Wants Justice And Doesn’t Care How He Gets it
This is a new perspective for Michael. He’s always been a compassionate guy. He’s the friend Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) can rely on when she was struggling with the alleged kidnapping of her baby, Bailey Lou Jones (London and Jett Prinzo-Berendt). He was the support system Willow Tait (Katelyn MacMullen) needed when he met her in a GH support group for grieving parents. He’s always there to mend fences with family — until recently.
Michael’s character has shifted from a man who would do whatever he can to help someone out, to a man who will do whatever it takes to avenge those he feels have been wronged. Namely, his own family. Michael used to care about making sure other people didn’t become collateral damage in his wars, but not anymore. His recent pursuit of a merger between ELQ and Aurora Media confirmed he didn’t care if safeguarding the company put Ned Quartermaine (Wally Kurth) out to pasture. Much the same, Michael wants revenge on Sonny and he isn’t paying attention to who might pay a price for it in the process.

General Hospital Spoilers – Indicates The Hook Won’t Come For Sonny Corinthos Anytime Soon
If Michael is behind The Hook, he’s not pursuing the death of his father. He may not have been looking to harm Brando either. But the way Michael sees it, sometimes you have to do things you don’t want to do to get to where you need to be. His father taught him that. Should Michael be the mastermind behind The Hook, it’s not likely he’s looking to kill Sonny, but he wants to take everything away from him. We shouldn’t be quick to assume that ever only meant Sonny’s business. Stay tuned for more GH news, updates, and spoilers right here!
