With Sonny Free of Connie, Who Should He Be With on General Hospital?



Connie (Kelly Sullivan) returned to Port Charles and promptly kicked the mob don to the curb on General Hospital. Whether or not their breakup lasts, it does open up the possibility of Sonny (Maurice Benard) moving on to someone else.

Carly (Laura Wright) has been his go-to gal for years, but I prefer them more as friends. Sonny’s long-time love Brenda (Vanessa Marcil) just “slept” with his son Michael (Chad Duell), but maybe their epic story isn’t over just yet?

Olivia, the mother of his oldest son Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), needs some lovin’ now that her doc has been shipped off to the clink. Then there is Sam (Kelly Monaco), a one-time lover and the widow of his dead best friend Jason (Steve Burton).

Does anyone know if Brenda is coming, going or went? I never got the story on if she only came in for the 50th or shes back.

Olivia hands down... for the love of all that is holy and sacred keep Sam away from Sonny... I am actually starting to like her character again.

BTW I am the biggest Megan Ward fan ever, and I doubted I would ever accept Kate w/o her, but I must say I now think KS is Kate/Connie. I can't imagine Megan in the role now. Megan kind of reminds me of V, maybe she can return to Port Charles with lil Jax in tow.

Sonny should always be with Brenda, first and foremost.

But, since Vanessa Marcil is only guest starring, my second choice is definitely Olivia. They share a child, and have this easy-going chemistry. They know each other's flaws to a tee and respect them. They could easily replace Connie with Olivia as the Bensonhurst childhood sweetheart of Sonny's.

Liz spent three years without a romantic hookup, so Sonny should sit and spin for at least a year. Wink

I remember when Olivia harassed Kate when she came to town for being with Sonny in the first place. Olivia hated the mob which is why she kept Dante away from Sonny.

If Brenda is staying....no contest...SnB all the way...If she is leaving, I have always liked the chemistry between Olivia and Sonny. So I vote for Solivia...much better than Kate...and Carly...please no never again...and Sam has ME back on the canvas soon...so not her either.

I think that Sonny is next going to hook up with Olivia. They have had them pretty cozy lately.

Olivia. All Olivia has ever done was stroke Sonny's ego and prop him. Let them be together.

She has nothing to do. All she does is run around acting a fool with her visions. She has no purpose in Port Charles other than to prop Sonny so let her do it while in bed with him

There should be a choice for someone else or no one, but since that likely will not happen, I will say Olivia ..only because that's where it seems the story is going.

Sonny should be with his one true love and soulmate Carly! I really hope that the show doesn't try to even go there again with Sonny and Olivia! I like them as just friends! Put Sonny and Carly back together! And DEFINITELY NOT with Sam or Brenda! GH needs to give Laura’s Carly a real chance to be a couple with Sonny. We have gotten a lot of teases of S&C with Laura since she came on as Carly but never anything that lasted. It’s a shame too because Maurice and Laura have AMAZING chemistry! Sonny and Carly are soulmates and belong together. Now that Kate/Connie has dumped Sonny and now that Brenda will be gone off the show soon hopefully GH will put Sonny and Carly back together and give them a real shot to be together. Brenda is so whinny and fake! Yeah whatever some believe Brenda is Sonny’s true love but I disagree! How many times has Sonny left Brenda standing in the rain??? If I remember correctly Sonny ran after Carly in the rain to get her back Sonny left Brenda at the Alter and he married Carly 4 times! Sonny described Brenda as being a drug and described Carly as being his Oxygen and his Life! Last I checked drugs are bad for you and Oxygen is what you need to live! Carly was the one that gave Sonny a family and two sons! Carly is the one that made Sonny be able to celebrate his birthday giving him happy memories instead of the horrible ones when he was a kid growing up with Deke! Carly has always been there for Sonny whenever he needed her to and would lie for him if he needed her to do it and stood by his side. Carly is the woman that Sonny should be with and I really really hope that one day they will find their way back together!

I thought the rumors were MB nixed another round of CarSon because of LW's height and no longer being interested in the pairing?

OF COURSE BRENDA. FACT: MAJORITY OF POLLS say Brenda not that the writers give a sh!t so not sure why I bother. Even MB the actor himself has said Brenda is Sonny's soul-mate, he said it just recently on the Katie show and has said it multiple times through out the years. Sonny and Brenda were both not that known until they became S&B. Brenda definitely put Sonny on the map and as well as the other way around. Cannot be debated or argued, check the history.

I believe when Maurice was recently asked who Sonny belonged with he named three/four women and that was Brenda, Carly and Kate/Connie. He didn't choose just one and he definitely didn't say that Sonny belonged only with Brenda. And no you are right history can not be debated go back and look at Sonny and Carly's history together. They have always been there for each other throughout the years whether together or apart. Yes Sonny started out with Brenda but then he moved on from her and created this amazing history and chemistry with Carly. Carly was the one that gave Sonny a family she was the one that showed him that he deserved to have a family and that he is worthy of love. Carly did all of that not Brenda so yes check the history Smile

Sonny and Brenda.

Look at this dramatic love story. I'll always remember the wedding that didn't happen.

This Kate/Connie thing is just a big mess. And the only Carly I loved Sonny with was Tamara Braun. He had this love/hate thing going on with Sarah Brown and with Laura Wright I get the vibe that they are just better of as exes.

Olivia is the mother to his son but never played a big enough role in Sonny's love life IMO. Neither did Sam who back then just seemed to be a Brenda replacement.

ANNSZITA I think I voted Brenda cause I love the soul-mate thing, but Carly is so good. I would love to watch her with him. Since LW has taken over the roll, they were never really together. I'd love to see that.

I still think Sonny needs to spend at least one year alone or maybe longer before jumping back into the relationship game. The man has been with at least fourteen different women in the last twenty years with barely a few weeks in between!

I like Laura Wright but I see no chemistry between Sonny and Carly.... In fact, hasn't Carly said over and over again that they don't belong together because they would destroy each other? Didn't loving Sonny cause her breakdown?

What does Liz's history have to do with sonny ?? Le sigh. If tb or sjb came back hands down I would say Carly but I am over Brenda for the time being - she needs to grow up - so I'd like to see where things go with Connie. Sam would never hook up with sonny again unless the wrote her entirely ooc. She loved Jason too much that seriously if she let John go because it was too much of a betrayal then she certainly would not involve herself with anyone else along those lines. It's the same reason I wouldn't by her with aj either - too much love for jason

This question shouldn't even need to be asked. Brenda, of course. She's the love of Sonny's life, his soulmate, and the only reason he was ever with any of the other women on this list was because he couldn't be with her, because VM left GH. Every other Sonny pairing besides Brenda is just Sonny killing time until she returns. It's time for GH to stop portraying Sonny as some pathetic bed-hopper and give SnB and their fans the respect they deserve. Offer VM a contract and find a way to work with her schedule, and keep SnB together even if she has to leave the canvas from time to time. I'd love to see them reunite and for Sonny to FINALLY get out of the mob for Brenda and her son, as he did back in 1997. While she goes back to Italy, Sonny can stay in PC and work on getting out of the business, with her returning from time to time as possible. That could be a great story and much more satisfying and believable than Sonny having a new "love interest" every year simply because of actress availability issues. It's been twenty years this year since SnB met and after all this time, they only have to look into one another's eyes to make every other Sonny pairing irrelevant. It's time for GH to give Sonny and Brenda a happy ending!

If Liz can do without a romantic partner for three years so can Sonny. Sonny has gone from one woman to the next without a break. You can't take any of his pairings seriously, because we all know the next Reese, Clare, Kate, Hannah, etc is eighteen months away.

I still harbor a bit of affection for the Sonny/Olivia pairing since I adore Lisa LoCicero as a performer and she was clearly brought on canvas to be a foil for the Sonny/Kate pairing. I can only guess that story never came to fruition because of the return of powerhouse Sarah Brown in the new role of Claudia. So re-pairing Brown and Bernard was irresistible.

TPTB seemed to build her up as finally a woman who stepped outside of Sonny's Angel/Whore view of women.
The Sonny/Olivia chemistry was significant and I enjoyed Liv as the one person who would casually tell Sonny "No" all the time and get away with it.
They worked for me and the below scene was fire.

Olivia used to tell Sonny "No" when she first came to PC, but that all changed once the truth came out about Dante being their son. I don't know how fiery Olivia can even be around Sonny after he shot Dante in the chest. Yeah, yeah, yeah, Olivia "forgave" Sonny, but two more inches and her son would have died by his father's hand.

Brenda will ALWAYS win this race. The only Carly I tolerated with Sonny was Tamara Braun. They need not to EVER go there with him & Sam again. I could do him & Olivia. She needs something/someone to do. They need to cut their losses with Connie. Unless Megan Ward comes back, I couldn't care less.

I won't get in to leads vs supporting over even chem - it is unusual for contract cast to not have a love interest for a long stretch. I can't image tptb leaving sonny without a potential interest even if its just spending time with olivia

I really believe that Sonny belongs with Brenda. I think that Sonny truly was and still is inlove with Brenda. It was a natural, instant, genuine love and connection with Brenda. He was head over heels inlove with her and they discussed all the things a couple do like have a family and building a life together. He wanted all that with Brenda. It seems like people who want Carly w/Sonny are afraid to even watch the history of Sonny and Brenda because they are afraid they will see a huge difference in what they believe. Sonny and Brenda were joined at the hip and where you saw one, you saw the other. The only reason Mo will NOW say whoever he is with is his true love is because he said "he doesn't want to piss any fan base off" but he has said more than one occasion that Brenda is his soul mate. Brenda never cheated on Sonny and Sonny never cheated on Brenda. They were always loyal to one another. It was a beautiful love story and that's why even other actors have said that they love Sonny and Brenda. Now you go and read your facts. I dare you. SnB for life!!!! If you want to be shallow and just look at her when she came back in 2010 then you are fooling yourself. The writing for her was horrible. Mo and Vanessa even said that they didn't like the way things were written but they tried to play it as honest as they could. Brenda is the only one for Sonny and the WHOLE WORLD knows that not just us in America that watch GH. People all over the world love Sonny and Brenda and believe Brenda is the only one for Sonny. What's funny to me is that you hear Carly all the time saying it. She's so insecure around Brenda. Why is that? I honestly think that Sonny and Carly have a great relationship as exes and parents. To me they represent a couple who used to be married and are great at supporting each other around their children. That is the chemistry between them that I see but not them being inlove w/one another. To be honest Carly had mad chemistry w/Todd. I mean I liked her with Todd. He looked at her and kissed her like Sonny kisses Brenda. They had some mad chemistry. I liked Carly with Todd. I hope he comes back and they put them two together. I also like Carly and AJ. AJ is time enough for Carly. She doesn't know what to do w/AJ and that's why I think they could work. The way he taunts her is funny and also very cute. They do have a son together. But def Sonny and Brenda no doubt about it.

Watching the 50th anniversary episodes of GH on Soapnet, when Sonny and Brenda first got together they had amazing chemistry!!! Over the years, with VM coming and going, the couple lost a lot of their magic. But I still think Brenda is Sonny's one true love. Since VM isn't sticking around I have a feeling there will be a Sonny/Olivia/Connie triangle.

Sonny has zero chemistry with any of these women, except Brenda. He either needs to be with her or off searching for his personality, among other things that have gone missing over the years. Maurice sleep walks through his scenes with the actress who plays Connie/Kate. I cant say I blame him. Carly said it best back in 2010 when she said there's only one perfect woman for Sonny, and that's Brenda, and everyone else is just fighting for second place. Sonny can deny it all he wants, he can declare that he loves Carly or Kate more, but at the end of the day, it is what it is. Sonny and Brenda were the last super couple this show ever saw, and it's always been obvious to anyone watching this show that they are meant for each other.

Sonny needs a strong woman in his life, and I don't think that Brenduh (the queen of histrionics, guilt trips, whining, pointing the finger and passive aggressiveness!) fits the bill.

I am sure that Brenda was a likable character in the 90s, but since I wasn't watching back then and it's now 2013, I think we need to leave the past in the past.

I want to see Olivia and Sonny together. Lisa LoCicero and Maurice Benard have great chemistry.

I am also a CarSon fan, but they have been married 12,000 times and it's sooooo clearly predictable, based on the writing, that Carly is gonna start jumping AJ's bones in about um......5, 4, 3, 2.......

And we all know that Michael Easton is coming back for Sam.

I guess if I had to choose maybe Sonny with Kate/Connie. I dont understand since when has Connie become a good person all of a sudden? How did this happen? And also, Connie came back and not Kate, right?

Sonny and Brenda, eh. I think Sonny is too tough to be with Brenda. Brenda is kind of weak with Sonny. I like her with Jax. Better fit, IMO. I would say Carly but Sonny and Carly dont work and frankly, I saw enough of them as a couple for years. And they always sleep together anyway. Didnt they have sex in a limo when Micheal went to jail or was that when he was in a coma? Havent slept together a few times anyway?

I will say this. Carly owned Brenda the past few days. Man, she was fierce. I say that and I'm not a big Carly fan.

I also wish there was a none of the above choice, I have always felt that Sonny was Brenda's young and wild choice and that Jax was her adult choice. I don't think that safe equals boring. I think safe equals safe. I don't think Sonny loves, he tries to possess.

I feel like RC has stomped on the feelings of those of us who love Brenda and Brenda/Jax. It was once a good and balanced triangle.

As for Carly, Olivia, and Sam, Carly lost her mind, Olivia railing against Sonny is the reason I liked her once upon a time and Sam's relationship with Jason as well as the fact that Sonny is her sister's father takes a Sam/Sonny pairing off the table forever.

Brenda, no doubt! Smile

Love how Brenda stood up to the loud barking tramp and made her lose control. If ya ask me I thought Cujo's head was gonna explode. Love me some feisty Brenda! Love how she can mess with Cujo mentally really good w/o having to raise her voice. She always does it so calm , cool & Collected. It was soooo much fun to watch Crazy Just hated that Michael was dragged into it.

It was Sonny & Brenda for me in 1993, Its Sonny and Brenda for me NOW and ALWAYS Smile I support originality not rewritten after rewritten "love" *cough* Skate *cough* Olivia &Sonny *cough* And don't let me get on ( CarSick ) Sonny and Cujo aka Carly

I'm sure in the meantime ( until Brenda's inevitable return ) the writers will throw another filler or two at Sonny like - Olivia the psychic for a while or possibly that mentally disturbed Cartoon Konnie once more. Counting down the days , months till the Return of Ms. Brenda Veronica Barrett Big smile
