Journey To The Dark Side
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.
