Guza has had a busy month or two establishing clearly who shall henceforth be considered the new action figure heroes and we now have three. Of course Might Jase still leads the pack, having the most saves as always. Michael goes to jail. Enter Mighty Jase to run interference and try to protect him. Franco resurfaces…free heroic Jason because only Might Jase can try to save the kidnapped child and capture the zany goofball killer, Franco.
But wait, alas, there are interlopers now treading on our mighty heroic action figure. Enter the gentle, good cop Lucky who snatches the heroics from Mighty Jase, rescues the baby and is soon off to Ireland for Interpol to show off his new Irish accent and fight The Balkan. Wait though, unbelievable as it is, Mighty Jase must share heroics with yet another wise and righteous warrior, Dante. Together he and the anointed one worked to capture Franco but you can’t win them all so they combined efforts again and found evidence to free Sonny.
Are these heroic saviors done yet? Not even close. Mighty Jase, out of the goodness of his heart, volunteered to go to the rescue of Brenda, the damsel in distress, singlehandedly slay two bad guys, save her from a forced drug overdose and whisk her back to PC to his place. Good luck with that one Mighty Jase.
Meanwhile Dante and fair Lulu, fearing they might not be on every day, rushed off to Ireland to rescue endangered Lucky from the grasp of The Balkan. A gun battle ensues and the mighty heroes manage to slay the bad guys and escape.
Now, while all the heroes are in action, Sonny having been freed is now on VERY friendly terms with Claire who has given up her assignment so she can be with Sonny. Now Sonny has really not had a relationship for almost three years, but Guza has let it be known that Sonny and Brenda still love each other but he thinks she is engaged. Yes, he is using Claire to forget Brenda. Enter chorus of Sonny haters shouting “manwhore” while whipping out fingers to count all the women Guza has conveniently had Carly and Diane mention so this ritual is easier on those who enjoy the counting thing. Some forget that starting way back with Alan, men on this show have had numerous women because that’s what long term leads do on soaps.
Guza could not help annoying fans and haters alike by sending Sonny off quite possibly to the same island he always sent him to so folks can bring it up and hate it. Sonny supposedly woos, wines and dines Claire telling her he cares for her and then….he comes home to BRENDA. Supposedly Sonny and Brenda discuss their feelings, Brenda wants some space but Sonny breaks it off with Claire. Will she be angry and go after him or Brenda with a vengeance. Will she get pregnant and experience a Lily-like departure. Only Guza knows.
What we do hope for is some story for Sonny other than the parade of the kids hating on everything he does, lectures from Carly , any more encounters with Johnny, and the never ending obnoxious verbal battles with blowhard Jax, who will take it upon himself to visit Sonny soon and order him to stay away from Brenda. Yawn.
The big question for Sonny fans is whether Guza will write something good for Sonny and Brenda, restore some balance to the Sonny character whereby he can be a mobster and still have a life, and whether he can write stories that are not blatantly establishing heroics month after month for the same chosen few. He has done one thing right, he ended the horrendous Johnny vs. Sonny feud. Now can he bring in a Balkan villain we can enjoy, and write an umbrella story that gives quality time to more than a few chosen heroes?

like Jason is finally going to put Sam first, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that she’ll let him (as previously mentioned in a much older spoiler further below). Lots of stuff on the horizon for both them and Lulu and Dante. Patrick and Robin fans still have plenty of story coming their way.
Time to rewatch Dominic Zamprogna’s audition reel for the role of Dante.
Remember that the scene involved discussion between Dante and a woman he was paid to guard?
Turns out Dante was once Brenda’s bodyguard. Does this mean they once slept together?
Maybe, maybe not. What we do know for sure is that whatever their past indiscretion, they both regret it and they won’t be happy to see each other again.
Its seems that Brenda and Dante may have stolen something from the Balkan.
Jerry Jax will pop in for a few episodes during sweeps and he will want to get his hands on it.
Jerry will look to Sam for assistance in retrieving said item.
