Occupation
  • Antiques dealer
  • Head of the Scully mob family
  • Member of the Lavery mob family
  • Joseph Mitchell "Joe" Scully, Jr. was a fictional character on the soap opera General Hospital. He was the son of the late mob boss Joe Scully and the father of the late Trey Mitchell, through raping the now deceased Connie Falconeri (aka Kate Howard).

    He was portrayed by actor Richard Steinmetz from July 2, 2012, until October 23, 2012.

    Casting

    On May 24, 2012, Soap Opera Digest broke the news that Richard Steinmetz, known for his roles on Passions and Loving, would join the cast of General Hospital. Frank Valentini teased that Steinmetz's upcoming character would be the son of a former character and will have a big story with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).[3][4]

    Steinmetz made his first appearance as Joe Scully, Jr. on July 2, 2012.

    On October 18, 2012, it was revealed that Steinmetz was let go from the series. Steinmetz told SOD, “I’ve known for a little while. Frank Valentini (EP, General Hospital) told me that with the exit of Jason, they’re going in a different direction. Him leaving meant that they had to change some things around and I taped my last scenes a few weeks ago. I was pretty sad! I really did enjoy working there. A lot of people told me they were unhappy I was leaving, like Erik Valdez (Trey), my on-screen son, and Kelly Sullivan (Kate/Connie). It doesn’t change anything, but it makes me feel good.”[5] He made his last appearance on October 23, 2012 when his character was killed off.

    Storylines

    His on-screen appearance was short in 2012. He was the mystery financier of the production of his son's Trey Mitchell reality show of Mob Princess. The show's main character was supposed to be Kristina Corinthos detailing her life as a mob daughter of Sonny Corinthos. He is seen on-screen in Atlantic City in his Antiques shop where Sonny Corinthos sends for him. He is later arrested.

    He is mysteriously released with the help of Jerry Jacks. He is later seen in Port Charles. Jerry orders him to help in his water contamination scheme. He is given an antitoxin from Jerry. He gives it to his new romance Tracy Quartermaine.

    Scully was instructed by Cesar Faison under the disguise of Duke Lavery to persuade his son Trey to marry Kristina. Trey married Kristina in Las Vegas during the water contamination scare. Scully then kidnapped Kristina and was almost going to kill her. Trey stopped him and the father and son engaged into a struggle for the gun. The gun goes off and Joe is shot in the shoulder.

    Joe almost shoots Jason, but instead he gets fatally shot by him for doing so

    Joe Scully, Jr. later arrives on the docks at Pier 52, sent by Faison to kill Bernie Abrahms. Joe shoots Bernie, but Jason arrives and tells him to surrender. Joe tries to shoot him, but Jason fatally shoots him in the chest. After both Bernie and Jason are shot by Faison who is disguised as Duke, Faison tries to shoot Scully, but the shot misses and Scully gets away.

    Joe then arrives at the Quartermaine Mansion were he tells Tracy to call his son for him, Trey arrives and Joe tells him that he loves him and also tells him that Sonny shot him, when in truth it was really Jason that did it. Joe Scully, Jr. then dies from his gunshot wound.
