I agree about the shortsightedness of isolating Sonny from his family, but I buy the good Sonny characterization. He's Adrienne's son after all. When she first met Justin, (all praise to the invaluable Youtube) she struggled a lot with his association with Victor, so, it's totally believable that she raised her kids to be good and decent.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
Since Brady is such a thick-headed disappointment, I would think it would make sense that Victor would try to entice Sonny into joining the family business at Titan. I don't get isolating Sonny from his family either.
It's because Sonny only exists as Will's boyfriend. Even now with Will being gone, we see Sonny (in very limited scenes) but his existence is about Will. If it's not about Will, all Sonny is shown as is a coffee pourer or a babysitter. That is too bad because Sonny has such great chemistry with his everybody but the show doesn't see Sonny as his own character. If Will wasn't recast, I don't see how Sonny would not have been sent off with Will.
I agree, and it's really sad. Short-sighted, too. With Sonny being Kiriakis and Johnson, both families with complicated histories and family dynamics, Sonny could be a really complex character. Should be
more of a complex character. I know these writers aren't strong on characterization, but come on...at least try.
