Pity General Hospital’s poor, misunderstood mobster, Sonny.
All he does is think about others, everything he does is for the benefit of his family and society at large (murder, blackmail, extortion and glassware shattering, included), and yet this paragon of virtue still struggles with his love life! Surely, there’s not justice in the world.
What woman would you like to see Sonny (Maurice Benard) with? Over 2,000 fans weighed in.
On-again, off-again, on-again, off-again, married, divorced, married, divorced, married, affair… rinse, repeat. Carly (Laura Wright). Sonny can’t live with her, and he can’t kill her. (Though shooting her in the head while she was giving birth came close to testing that theory.) And it seems you feel the same way.
A whopping 93% of you voted in a landslide that Sonny belongs with Carly, no matter what sin either of them commits — and there are certainly plenty to choose from with this pairing.
Love the One You’re With
So she wore a wire meant to entrap him, faked her death, lied to him about her long-lost child and, worse of all, seems to have the same taste in men as Carly when it comes to her anti-Sonny options.
Still, 6% of fans cling to the notion that Brenda (Vanessa Marcil) is Sonny’s soulmate, not to mention a better fit than Carly. Brenda was Sonny’s first major love (before Kate/Connie were added to the checklist), and many of you believe she should be the last.
It was a tiny fraction, only 1% of viewers, who voted Other, but, among your suggestions were a reunion with mother of Sonny’s first child, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), a plea for someone new, so that the endless back and forth with Carly, Brenda et. al. could, in fact, end, and the prompt for Sonny to choose “himself.” And maybe give the women of Port Charles a break.
