I'm confused about something... where exactly was Sonny when he was sitting dejectedly on the stoop with graffiti on the door and walls and someone put money in his cup? Why did he shoulder his way in and then come right back out with what looked like jewelry in his hand? Did he drop it? Did I dream all this? I missed something here!!!!!
I'm hopeful that Garin Wolf will do away with the crap that existed on this show under Bob Guza. I'm ready for more balance on this show and less of the mafia crap.
I read an article this past week that says once the Katie Couric show begins on ABC next Fall, GH will follow the other two lost soaps to the internet. I felt that once ABC announced they were going to recharge SoapNet into yet another kids cartoon network, Soaps (at least ABC soaps) were on their last laps.
PS For those Jax 'haters' --- say what you will about Jax, at least he always puts the safety of his child and Carly's kids over his own personal happiness. To me, THAT is what real love looks like.
The problem I have with Jax in this situation is he's being both hypocritical and completely unfair. Carly is right, his own brother is certainly no better than Sonny. And Carly is also right in saying Jax knew exactly what he was getting into when he married her and they had a child together - he had years of experience where both Sonny and Jason were concerned. Sonny was already the father of two of her children. It's one thing to say he doesn't want Joss around Sonny, but to say Sonny has to be completely out of their lives....and therefore out of his children's lives...is just wrong. Remember...Jax didn't have a problem marrying Sonny's sister and trying to start a family with her. And oh yeah...didn't he lie and try to keep Courtney's baby away from his rightful parent Nicolas then, too?
:yeahthat It's the hypocrisy that drives me crazy with Jax. You know it's bad when CARLY is being the adult one in the situation! :lol She's right too - Jerry is just as bad, if not worse, than Sonny. I just wanted to choke him for making me root for Carly! Here she is being all rational and wanting to share custody and he's being a selfish jerk and not budging. I used to love Jax, so it makes me sad that the writers just ruined a character I loved.
It's not as black and white as you guys are painting it, and there's a huge difference . Jax's brother was always a sweet, nice guy (remember when he had that wonderful romance with Bobbie) and then all of a sudden, UNBEKNOWNST to Jax -- he became evil. Once Jerry became evil, Jax tried to cut all ties with him and never let him come around his family. Yes, Jax married Carly knowing who her kids' father is, but if you all remember, Carly promised Jax that her life with Sonny was all in the past -- she has never kept her word to Jax and has been consistently involved with Sonny (and Jason) ever since then, consistantly putting her own kids in danger by doing so. Once Jocelyn was born, Jax became terrified that she was in mortal danger from this whole mob lifestyle (not only from Sonny and Jason's usual enemies, but also including Franco, Jerry Jax, and the straw that broke the camel's back was Shawn -- the killer-for-hire that Sonny/Carly had guarding Jocelyn). I think Carly is in the wrong because she is in complete DENIAL about the danger that she herself allows her children to be in, and on the other hand, Jax has tried to do everything in his power to keep them safe. I don't blame him and I would do exactly the same thing. Because this is no joke. You can't have a normal kind of "shared custody" with a killer. No one is safe around Sonny and Jason. Olivia knew it at age 16, and never let Sonny even know he had a son, Alexis knew it and kept Kristina away from Sonny as much as she possibly could. Jason knew it and gave his own child away to Elizabeth and Lucky. Even Brenda, when she, in her heart-of-hearts, realized the danger that her little boy could be killed if he was around Sonny, took her child and left Sonny. It broke her heart, but she left the man she has loved all of her life, in order to protect her child.
Scanned through the episode yesterday in time to tune in and see Jason/Sam tell Carly that Sam would no longer leave the room when Carly entered unannounced into their home!!! Thought that was long overdue and wonderful!!
