The Hypocrisy Is Suffocating
I just want to make sure that I'm understanding this correctly--it's entirely possible that I'm not and that I am, in fact, missing every single point, not because General Hospital is a deep and layered television program (I scoff a loud "HA!" at the very thought), but more because I often end an episode temporarily debilitated because of banging my head against a wall.
Sonny is angry that Starr threatened to kill him and responds by...threatening to kill Todd in between raging some more about Starr?
Sonny: You have a death wish, running that stupid little mouth of yours, challenging me in ways nobody would ever dare to...giving me options. Well, I've settled on an option, Manning. I'm going to kill you right now...[...]Michael and I are going to send your daughter to prison for attempted murder.
I mean...we're supposed to come away from this with a renewed sense of Sonny hatred, right? Because that is just the worst of ALL possible things and the only thing keeping me from turning this from a mini-screed to a maxi-screed is Todd's completely unimpressed and also, hilarious responses to this prolonged tantrum.
Like, "Yeah, yeah, okay, you're sticking my body in a trunk--what did you mean when you said I have a stupid little mouth?"
