BEST DAYTIME COUPLE|
SONNY AND CARLY, GENERAL HOSPITAL
Think back one year. Now, think of what you would've said had someone suggested that within 12 months, sworn enemies Sonny and Carly would be GH's signature supercouple. After your head stopped spinning, and you really thought about it, that should have seemed entirely logical. Here's why. To begin with, you're pairing two of GH's most intensely riveting actors, Maurice Benard and Sarah Brown. That said, there's also the inherent similarities between these troubled characters that make them, well, near-perfect for one another: the deep wounds suffered in childhood, the sense of social alienation, the fierce desire to protect loved ones at all costs...All of which reads like a semester of Dysfunction 101, but it works. Their shared tendency to screw things up allows a level of mutual understanding no past partners could achieve. Of course, given the volatile nature of both characters, many more years of supercoupledom may be a stretch. But as we well know, stranger things have happened...
