The idea that Cody could be his son has thrown Mac for quite a loop on GENERAL HOSPITAL, and he’s freaked out even considering having a DNA test run to see if Dominique’s child is really his.
“It’s uncomfortable,” John J. York (Mac) admitted to Soap Opera Digest of the complicated situation. “Mac and Felicia have a great life together and they’ve been through so much and everything is amazing… and this could change things.”
Still, the actor believes that his alter ego knows the truth deep down inside. “I don’t think, if we took a DNA test, that Mac would be too surprised if it turned out that Cody is his son,” York revealed. “And if it turns out that Cody is his son, I think he would want to get to know him. He can’t really tell him he’s sorry [that he wasn’t there for him] because Mac had no idea! There was never any indication that Dominique was pregnant with his child, otherwise, he would have searched for him.”
Mac being the stand-up guy that he is, will most definitely be willing to welcome Cody into his family if he turns out to be his son, especially with Felicia and Maxie’s support. The question remains, if this does turn out to be the case, will Cody want to be part of Mac’s family at all?
“I don’t know how they’re going to write this,” York confided, “but as John York playing Mac Scorpio, Mac, for me, is someone that would want to try to build on, ‘We’re here now, so how do we go forward? I don’t want you to be a stranger.’ There’s a lot to figure out, and hopefully, there will be a nice, emotional arc for the fans.”
