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?
