The Corpse Bride
We knew this would happen: that Sonny would be all ANGRY and then all SAD and then all sad and angry AT THE SAME TIME. We've lived through Sonny grieving before and it was sort of paint by numbers last week.
Of course, Sonny WOULD make Connie's murder all about him and he WOULD go off the deep end and have everyone all worried about how an innocent (and stupid--I'm sorry, I can't get past how dumb all of these people are for staying with Sonny and staying in town after suffering so many different violent attacks. I know that this is just the way Port Charles is and the way the soap opera genre is in general and I am usually much better at suspending my disbelief but this is just making me CRAZY. You were shot multiple times and yet you think life with Sonny Corinthos is worth the danger? Sonny CORINTHOS?! WHAT?!) woman's death is impacting HIM. ALSO, remember how he was all about Olivia just before Connie's murder? I remember that. He pretty clearly doesn't.
And he WOULD tease us all by pretending to contemplate commiting suicide.
Sonny: I'm gonna be with you now, Connie!
Ugh, you drama queen. Why dangle that delicious possibility in my face when we all know it's not going to happen?! Is it just to make me mad? Don't try to make me feel terrible just because you are grieving.
But the ghost marriage? That I did not see coming.
Connie: What are you waiting for? Make me your wife.
Connie: How does it feel to finally be married?
Sonny: It feels right.
Connie: Remember that feeling. Keep it with you.
Sonny: Don't go. Stay.
Connie: I'll always be with you, Sonny. In your heart and in your memories.
Sonny: Connie, I want more.
Connie: I wish I had more to give. I love you, Sonny. Goodbye.
That...was weird and gross, but at the same time, I have to give it begrudging props for surprising me. I mean, it surprised me in an "Ew...why is this...oh, dear" way, but it was surprising nonetheless. So the next time Sonny is grieving and depressed, all bets are off. He may marry an actual piece of barware (that story could serve as a sobering very special episode on so many levels).
