‘General Hospital’: Is Dev Really Brenda’s Kid – The Balkan’s Grandson?

General Hospital spoilers wonder if Dev Cerci (Ashton Arbab) is the biological son of Brenda Barrett (Vanessa Marcil). Is he really Alec, the grandson of the Balkan? If so, Dev’s real reason for coming to town may be to get to know Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) on the ABC sudser.

Brenda Barrett Reunites with Her Son Alec on General Hospital

GH viewers might recall Brenda Barrett was involved with The Balkan’s (Daniel Benzali) son Aleksander Janacek (Antonie Knoppers) years ago. But, he turned out to be an abusive mobster who stalked her. One night, during a struggle, Brenda shot and killed him. Later, she found out she was pregnant with his child, on General Hospital.

But, the Balkan’s family lied and said her son died during childbirth. Remember, Aleksander’s mother, Suzanne Stanwyck (Adrienne Barbeau), drugged Brenda into premature labor on GH. Then, she hid the boy from Brenda Barrett for three years. Eventually, Brenda got her son back.

And, she planned to raise him with her husband at the time, Sonny. However, his life was too dangerous, so Brenda moved back to Rome with her son. That was the last time Brenda was on General Hospital. However, she may still have ties to Port Chuck. And if it turns out Dev Cerci is her son, that would twist things up a lot.

Dev Cerci Meets Sonny on GH

Last year on General Hospital, Dev Cerci met Brenda’s ex-husband Sonny. Remember, the mob kingpin was trying to find his son Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) in Turkey. Later, Dev showed up in Port Charles because his safety was at risk. However, there may be more to it on GH.

Dev may have come to town because of Sonny – if his mother is Brenda Barrett. Of course, if Dev is her child, there’s a good chance she’s mentioned Sonny to him over the years. Clearly, she was still in love with Sonny. So, she may like Sonny as a father-figure for Dev. But, their marriage didn’t work out on General Hospital.

So, because Dev’s father is dead, Sonny would be the closest thing he has to a dad. Perhaps, Dev’s goal was to become part of Sonny’s family. IF so, it worked. Now, this may be how Brenda comes back into the picture. No doubt, fans want her back on GH. Will it be because she comes for her son, Dev Cerci?

Brenda May Return to General Hospital for her Son Dev

Not only do some General Hospital fans want Brenda Barrett back on the soap, but Sonny’s portrayer Maurice Benard does as well. He calls it a “no-brainer.” Of course, it would flip Sonny’s life upside down because he’s happily married to Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright). And, Brenda and Carly can’t stand each other on GH.

So, Brenda would not be happy to find out Carly’s raising her son. For all she knows, her son, if it’s Dev, is missing, and Sonny’s house is the last place she would think to look. So, she may be frantic while Dev Cerci is starting a new life. However, when new episodes are back, Dev may contact his mother and let her know where he is.

Then, Brenda may show up to get Dev back and take him home with her. No doubt, this will cause a lot of problems for Sonny and the whole family on General Hospital. So, viewers may soon see Brenda Barrett back on GH and learn more about Dev Cerci’s history on ABC daytime.
