GH'S MAURICE BENARD AND LAURA WRIGHT ON WHAT'S NEXT FOR “CARSON”

LATE-BREAKING NEWS

Now that Sonny has his memory back and has returned to Port Charles, Carly and Jason must grapple with how transparent to be with him about the feelings that emerged between them in Sonny’s absence — and Nina, who concealed the secret that Sonny was alive, will have to face the consequences of her actions.

Laura Wright (Carly) notes that this next stage of the storyline is what the show has been building to all year. “It’s why we’re here,” she declares. “The fallout. We have things happen so we can have consequences to action; that’s how we tell story. As much as people say, ‘Where’s the love? Everything’s always negative!’ Seriously, when everyone is happy and in love, you can only tell that story for so long. We have to have things happen. So, this — the fallout of Sonny being gone for nine months — is huge. Nine months where he wasn’t there. Nine months that he had another life. Nine months [later], not knowing how to communicate now with your person again because you might feel different. Me [as Carly] not knowing how to communicate with him because I’ve already been running the business. ‘I know how this business works. Don’t tell me to get out of it!’ I’m not saying that’s going to happen, I’m just saying, they’re two totally different people. Are Carly and Sonny really good at handling that kind of stuff? They’re hotheaded. They react instead of respond. They are very passionate and sometimes volatile people.”
