Michael Corinthos made a grae error
General Hospital has a storm brewing where the Corinthos clan is concerned but it has taken a backseat to other more pressing issues. Once it hits there will be hell to pay and it will be much deserved. If there is anyone who should realize how ruthless Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) is when he is crossed it should be the young man he raised practically from birth. Michael Corinthos (Chad Duel) has watched his adoptive father's business practices since childhood and know he is not a man to be toyed with. Even so, Michael has set something in motion that could backfire on him in due season. A few months back a new character, a young man named Dex (Evan Hofer) practically begged Sonny to hire him and went out of his way to prove his loyalty by threatening Michael. Sonny was furious and had to talk him down but it was later revealed that Dex is actually working for Michael to get the goods on the mob boss. Sonny will eventually find out and Dex may be a dead man walking in Port Charles. It's unclear how Michael ever thought he could outsmart his father but GH fans know that payday is coming. Sonny is aware that his son is trying to sabotage his coffee business and destroy him but he does not know that Dex is a plant in his organization. Brando Corbin (Johnny Wactor) does not trust this new guy so perhaps he might figure it out and help his cousin.
Timing is everything in Port Charles
General Hospital viewers know that Michael's grave error in judgment is going to come back to bite him and timing is everything. Right now Sonny is consumed with the mess that Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) made by selling her half of the Metro Court to Venture Captial Group. Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros) bought Carly's half of the hotel and Sonny is beside himself keeping up with the antics of these two women. Michael has been busy with Willow Tait's (Katelyn MacMullen) health as she fainted and later found out they are expecting a child. Dex has not been around much in recent episodes but eventually, that will change. Spoilers do not say what will happen but some fans believe he will shift loyalty and pledge his allegiance to Sonny. The problem with that theory is that Sonny does not like traitors and he let Dex work for him. He will be hurt that Michael turned on him this way but furious that Dex dared to cross him. Spoilers suggest that there is more to Dex and why he is in this position that will come out later. Fans are amazed that anyone who has any inkling of the nature of Mr. Corinthos would dare try to doublecross him. In due time all of this will work itself out but Dex could be running out of time.
Who is Dex?
There is a reason Michael hired Dex and believed he could trust him and that will no doubt be revealed over time. What fans can not understand is how Michael could put anyone's life at risk by having them spy on his father. Sonny dealt harshly with the two men who frightened Nina when they robbed the pub that Phyllis Caulfied (Joyce Guy) runs. Dex will be in serious trouble unless there is some secret reason that Sonny would not end his life. Michael is a mere babe when it comes to being ruthless although he is doing his best to be both Quartermaine and Corinthos bad. he does not have what it takes to go toe to toe with his father but Sonny will no doubt be lenient with him because he is his son and for Carly's sake. Something will have to be revealed that will stay Sonny's hand because it is his nature to take prisoners. He strikes out in vengeance and while he cannot execute Michael, Dex is fair game. If spoilers predictions are incorrect and there is not some secret about Dex that comes out it's possible the clock is ticking and his life might end. Keep watching General Hospital to find out what more there is if anything to this mystery man.
