On General Hospital, Carly Corinthos was completely blindsided by Willow Tait’s testimony during the preliminary hearing for her rival, Nina Reeves. She learned that husband Sonny Corinthos had left out a huge piece of the Nixon Falls puzzle — and she was furious and humiliated. But was there more to it than the on-the-surface betrayal?
General Hospital: Still Waters Run Deep
Friends, foes, and fans can agree on one thing about Carly (Laura Wright) — she certainly thinks fast on her feet and nothing is simple where she’s concerned. Sure, she hates Nina (Cynthia Watros) and the thought of her falling in love with Sonny (Maurice Benard) has to burn something fierce in her heart. But we don’t think that’s all that’s burning.
We have a feeling a bunch of “what ifs” are tearing her apart right now. After all, if she had known the truth when Sonny returned, she may have chosen to stay in her new marriage with Jason Morgan (Steve Burton). Had she stayed married to him, there’s no way he would have gone with Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) to rescue her mother, Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati), and died in the process.
Therefore, had she honored her newly rekindled (some would say they never went away) feelings for her first love, then we bet Carly believes Jason would still be alive. So when she attacks Sonny for his duplicity, you can bet this is what’s fueling that fire she’s aiming his way.
Of course, Sonny had no idea about the true feelings that had developed between them because it was Carly who wasn’t completely honest about where her heart had gone when she believed him to be dead. If and when that truth comes out, it will be hard to see how these two can get past all of this. There will be a lot of blame thrown around, which may in turn bury what remains of this once great love story.
