A General Hospital Story Line Clarification: What About Deke?
Some readers of Soap Opera Digest were confused about a development on this week's General Hospital.
Regarding when Sonny (Maurice Benard, pictured) was laying out the saga of his stepfather Trevor Lansing to Kate, the question was posed: Where was Deke, who used to lock Sonny in a closet in that story?
Well, here's the timeline:
Mike abandoned Adela; she went to work as a secretary for Trevor.
Trevor got Adela pregnant and sent her (with Sonny) to Martha's Vineyard to have the baby (who would be Ric).
Adela fell down the stairs while still pregnant and had to be hospitalized. Trevor said he wanted to marry her, but asked her to give Sonny up for adoption.
Adela refused. When Ric was born, Adela gave Ric up to Trevor.
Adela and Sonny went back to Bensonhurst and had no further contact with Trevor or Ric.
Heartbroken Adela then met and married Deke, who turned out to be an abusive husband and stepfather.
Any other questions?
