We Speak Out
We’ve made no secret of the fact that we’d love to see GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Sonny leave the Mob. Frankly, we think it would open up a world of opportunity storylinewise for the character and present his legendary portrayer, Maurice Benard, with a whole slew of new challenges. But if that’s not going to happen, then the show needs to stop pretending it might every year or so. At this point, the rationalizations are giving us whiplash! We totally understood Carly’s reasoning for wanting her hubby to dial back the violence, so to hear her then give him the “Be the best darn criminal you can be!” speech while Jason lay near death was tough. She tried saying that Sonny has to remain in the business in order to keep his family safe, but guess what? They’ve all been shot, stabbed, kidnapped and otherwise in danger regardless of his status!
