Sonny and Ava have lost their discernment
Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Ava Jerome Cassadine (Maura West) are slipping in their skills of discernment lately on General Hospital. Both have been bamboozled by Dex Heller (Evan Hofer) who is really working for Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell). On Thursday Michael tried to cut Dex loose because he realized how dangerous Sonny is but Heller refused. He is more determined than ever to take down Sonny after being tortured.
Neither Dex nor Michael realizes that "Carver" acted on his own by bringing the knives so Sonny is being blamed and Dex wants to get even. Meanwhile, Sonny and Ava were singing the praises of his new hire and Mrs. Cassadine told Sonny that Dex is a keeper. These two once were sharp-witted and with their years of experience and mob ties should be able to spot a phony. They are being taken in by Heller and will probably come back to bite them both.
Ava and Sonny need to pay attention
Sonny is considering drawing Dex closer thanks to Ava's glowing testimony of how wonderful he is. Now that Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennessey) has identified the hook killer as a woman Sonny realizes he was wrong about Dex. Everyone kept telling him Heller was innocent but Sonny would not back down. This is another area where his judgment was wrong and it is probably going to cost him.
Dex is more determined than ever to get the dirt on his "boss:" and hand him over to Michael. The only catch is that he is beginning to care about Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy) and her brother has told him not to see her again. In the meantime, Ava and Sonny continue to have lapses of judgment as Mrs. Cassadine could not really detect that Ryan Chamberlain (Joon Lindstrom was faking locked-in syndrome.
When the truth is finally revealed both Sonny and Ava will realize how wrong they were about Dex but he may be the least of the worries because Esme Prince (Avery Kristen Pohl has returned to Port Charles and is possibly the real hook killer. stay tuned to General Hospital to find out what happens next with Sonny and Ava. Some fans have even suggested the duo might fall in love for real.
