“Leo has this dirt on him. The company’s on the line. Titan’s on the line. None of this information can get out, because it would ruin the business.”
This new twist adds a major wrinkle to what looked to be a clear path to Will and Sonny’s happy future together. And Smith is embracing all the turmoil that’s headed the couple’s way.
“With Paul, Will, and Sonny, the writers did an amazing job creating a love triangle with three gay characters,” says Smith. “They told that story, and that’s what soap operas are all about — love triangles.
“It’s also incredible that they’ve now brought on this villain with Leo, as well,” continues Smith. “He’s coming in and creating a new triangle, but in a false way. It’s also showing the progression [soaps are making] telling all these stories. Everyone is mixing together as they should.”
The Waiting Game
As for what Leo and his powerful threats will mean for Will and Sonny moving forward, Smith promises:
“It’s going to be a great story. I know the fans want Will and Sonny to get back together right away, but you want to hold it off. You don’t want them to be back in love and totally back together quite yet.”
And, of course, if Leo has his way, that might never happen.
