The only love that General Hospital fans agree ever came close to Carly for Sonny is Brenda. Brenda (Vanessa Marcil) is the one who first turned Sonny from a sleazy mobster who drugs teenage girls to a dreamy, dimpled leading man who only mobs for truth, justice, and the American Way.
Brenda wore a wire to trap Sonny (Maurice Benard) and he swore he’d never forgiven her. He forgave her. Brenda married Jax (Ingo Rademacher) and Sonny swore he’d never forgive her. He forgave her. She died, and she hid a secret son with another mobster, and, still, Sonny kept coming back. So did Jax.
With both of Carly’s (Laura Wright) and Brenda’s exes back on the canvas, is this the perfect time for the sultry brunette to return? What almost 11000 had to say:
Enough Is Enough
No, 69% stomp their feet in fury. We thought we’d gotten rid of her for good! And not just when she died. Everyone knows death isn’t permanent on soaps. But the last time she left town was supposed to be the last time she left town.
Brenda and Sonny are played out. Brenda and Jax are played out. Brenda, quite frankly, is played out. Stay where you are and model your heart out. We’re good here.
Bring Her Back Alive
For 31% of the audience, though, there can never be enough Brenda. And there can never be enough competition for Carly. She’s spent too long as the center of attention. She needs to be reminded there are other fish in the sea, and if she wants to keep up, she needs to up her game.
Brenda won’t just bring out the best in Sonny and Jax, she’ll also bring out the worst in Carly. When Carly is good, she’s good. But when she’s bad, she’s better. Release the Brenda! General Hospital airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local station for air times.
