Please Don't Forget the REAL Victim
I don't want this to become a habit because, for starters, it would get incredibly repetitive incredibly quickly and I'd get sick of typing the word just after you got sick of reading them. And--and this is probably the most important to me, because there is little in this world that I enjoy more than being haughty and judgmental--I'd lose the moral high ground, you know? Like, I can't really rail against this show for being creatively bankrupt while I make a career out of posting the exact same post on a daily basis (Introductory paragraph written in either a pithy, self-effacing tone or a grouchy, caps lock filled angry tone, followed by a particularly horrible quote by Sonny, followed by a wordy declaration of my own speechlessness), can I?
BUT IN FAIRNESS TO ME...Sonny is the freaking worst. Like, to the point that I barely even absorbed any of the show after Sonny barked out this nugget of delusion. Mostly because I went deaf. Although I WAS mentally present for the show's very end, where Maxie dropped the bombshell that she and Matt were married and that she wouldn't have to testify against him after all, and I kind of LOVED that a whole lot (although if Jason Cook is leaving, I am sure my love will be brief and then quickly replaced with the all-encompassing grossness of a Maxie/Spinelli reunion). But other than that? NOTHING. Anna and McBain talked a lot, and so did Elizabeth and Jason and all I could hear was my own voice saying, irked and irritated, "That stumpy little son of a bitch".
Kristina: Which is where I would have stayed, Molly, if he hadn't done something about it. God knows how many legs you had to break or how many people you had to threaten with car bombs --
Sonny: Enough! Now! You want to talk about the current situation, we'll talk about that. But don't bring up something in the past that hurt me.
Remember that time that Kristina could have been killed by a car bomb? And everyone was suspicious of Sonny for obvious reasons, such as his innate horribleness, and he became progressively angrier whenever anyone voiced their concerns and was so upset by the cruelty of those accusations that he swore on his own son's life that he didn't set the car bomb? Well, it HURT HIM to make those vigorous, lie-filled denials. He is SO SAD that he got caught doing something terrible out of spite and jealousy, and how dare Kristina be so insensitive as to bring that up? There is a statute of limitations on (most) past hurts, Krissy (please note that blaming misfortunes on Deke is timeless).
