Whom did Sonny love first on GENERAL HOSPITAL: Brenda or Lily? I feel like I remember the two of them fighting over him. Minerva Johnson
Las Vegas, NV
We wouldn’t say Lily and Brenda necessarily fought over Sonny. He did, however, pingpong between the two beauties on
more than one occasion! Brenda first met Sonny in 1993, and the two were almost immediately drawn to each other. Lily came into the picture the following year, when Brenda signed Miguel to L&B Records and Sonny decided to track down the rising star’s long-lost love while the three of them were in Puerto Rico for a concert. Lily tried rekindling her flame with Miguel, but mostly just grew close to Sonny. Jealousy soon cropped up between the four, with things coming to a head when Lily overheard that Brenda planned to wear a wire to expose Sonny’s criminal dealings… for his own good, of course! She ran to Sonny, who called Brenda out and dumped her, while a disgusted Miguel did the same to Lily. Sonny almost gave Brenda another chance, but when he caught her and Miguel in bed together, he figured it was time to give Lily a chance!
Q.When GH’s Liz was preparing for her wedding, she mentioned Sabrina had supported her relationship with Franco. Wasn’t Sabrina dead long before Franco and Liz began dating?
Farah M. via E-mail
A.Not quite! Franco and Elizabeth had their first date at the beginning of August. She was reluctant to date him, given his past, but gave in to their attraction after Jake pointed out how happy the artist made her. (Heck, even Franco’s insane mom, Heather, thought they made a good couple!) While a lot of locals tried talking Liz out of dating the former serial killer, Sabrina supported the pair… right up until she was murdered by another local serial killer, Paul Hornsby, in mid September.
Q.On DAYS OF OUR LIVES, Gabi said she wasn’t comfortable working with Eve because she’s the widow of her kidnapper, Deimos. But aren’t Eve and Gabi also related somehow?
Jane M. via E-mail
A.The two aren’t related directly, but they do have a family connection! During the years that Gabi’s father, Eduardo, had abandoned the family, he had been wed to Eve. At the time, though, Eduardo was an assassin who used the last name Larson, which means that their now-deceased daughter, Paige Larson, had been Gabi’s half-sister!
After that trip to Puerto Rico, Sonny and Brenda were all washed up.
Elizabeth’s encounter with a killer
ended far better than did Sabrina’s.
