Jour­ney To The Dark Side

ABC Soaps In Depth - - We Soeak Out! -

Soap fans claim that what they want is for their fa­vorite char­ac­ters to be happy, but let’s face it… things are way more in­ter­est­ing when their lives go off the rails. Sure, a sweet new baby mo­ment can light up a screen, but be­ing happy and man­ag­ing other peo­ple’s drama can get, well, bor­ing — and we sus­pect not just for us! Ever since GEN­ERAL HOS­PI­TAL’s Sam be­gan hav­ing ter­ri­fy­ing vi­sions and un­rav­el­ing be­fore our eyes, we’ve been riv­eted by both the story and the per­for­mances by Kelly Monaco and Mau­rice Benard. While Monaco’s clearly loved the chal­lenge that came with al­low­ing the usu­al­ly­grounded Sam to be­come un­hinged, Benard man­aged to make her vi­sions of Sonny down­right ter­ri­fy­ing. The writ­ers made it clear that Sam and Sonny were on a col­li­sion course, yet the scene in which she shot her for­mer lover, pushed him into a pit and left him to die was the kind of shock­ing mo­ment that had fans hit­ting the rewind but­ton in dis­be­lief.
