We are now in a new year with a whole new list of Guza ideas being put out there. Knowing Guza, how many of these will actually happen the way they are described? How many will actually happen period?
Let’s look at Sonny and Brenda. Whoopee, talk about ALL the time these two get to spend with each other…usually two minutes or less and than off to five other scenes so that a total disconnect can occur that demolishes any continuity of story between them. Sonny is having nightmares about the wedding but none worse than his fans are having….being well acquainted with the weddings and after glow that Guza has served up for Sonny lately. Instead of a horrified Sonny watching his wife- to -be get shot at the altar, will Guza instead try to kidnap her or blow her up after the wedding? But is that the only danger to the upcoming nuptials?
What , you ask, could be more lethal, more annoying and frightening, more disgusting and unwatchable….well that would be the she beast from hell, the sneering, teeth baring, lip curling never ending screamer, Carly, who plans her own nasty wedding ruining surprise. Here’s a nice switch Guza should consider….get those cars mixed up if there is to be a kidnapping and swipe the mouth that roars instead. If the car should blow up, so much the better for all who value their sight and their hearing. Jax knows how to protect his health… because he apparently is on the run or taking a nice long break from the loud vindictive blond that roars and hasn’t been seen in days. Maybe he and Morgan are on a celebrity tour where Jax is lining up important folks to sign Morgan’s cast!!!! As long as he has THAT PHONE, the man has connections!!!
Enter the wedding planner brought on by the village simpleton, Spinmaster, who thought that it would be helpful to Brenda to bring in the one person who can be more obnoxious than Diane and Suzanne combined. Sure needed that on this show. They should pair her with Milo. Maybe his Campbell heart healthy soup would calm this woman down and she could inherit Milo’s marshmallow personality.
Onward we go to Liz. Volumes have already been explored about Rebecca’s departure so we need not go there yet again. Now we can look forward to Guza turning a relatively sweet but not always nice Liz into either a raving vindictive scorned woman, alone and ready to turn lovely finger nails into sharp thorns, or he could toss her in Fernwood, drooling, hyperventilating, slowly losing touch with reality so that Guza can pull the old pumpkin headed dummy out of the attic and call her Liz instead of Laura.
Fast forward now to Dante who had thousands either cheering or worried because he missed his first day off the show in months. Where was Dante…he’s never off our screens. But wait, Theo alias the Balkan, has joined Diane’s staff along with fair Claire. Theo, while juggling three different dialects, has set out to prove that there is someone who can gossip more than Alexis, Claire and Diane combined. In just a few days he has managed to blab to all who will listen, especially gullible Lulu, that Dante and Brenda also killed and covered up Alexander’s death. What ever happened to being protected by one’s lawyer. Nobody has caught on yet, that with this guy as Brenda’s lawyer, an axe murderer at her side is less lethal . Little Lulu found out “the secret, well part of the secret, and now Dante temporarily will have to settle for just Michael as his roommate.
Ah yes, Michael and Abby. What a mess. With the mother from hell interfering, scheming and threatening, there is just NOBODY to root for in this one. Does Abby mean well? Seems she does. Bring on the ex-boyfriend to complicate things and set up a big story for whom???? Of course, it is Daddy in waiting, mighty Jase who still thinks of himself apparently as Michael’s daddy. While Sam is running around nursing baby thoughts, Jason will be all things to all people while stroking his notorious box of pain. He will be so darn busy, protector of Brenda, friend of Sonny, “real” father to Michael, father to be material for Sam., and let’s not forget little Jake who is lives in that box of pain and may be “outed” when Liz is ousted.
There are so many other “exciting side plots” Dr. Steve, his guitar, and Mother Olivia. Oh wait, we said exciting. Well, there is the new Dr. Evil who is busy befriending Robin, lusting after psycho Lisa while sleazy Johnny blackmails, sneers, lurks and whatever else is required of him now that he has entered the world of nasty Lisa. This whole mess has gotten so ugly, that quicksand seems more appealing because it brings a faster end to those caught in a trap like this one.
All in all, things seems to be moving along just as Guza always plans them…long suffering for many, short periods of happiness followed by long periods of nastiness and suffering. Writing is like one long bowling game for Guza……set all those pins up so they can repeatedly be knocked down.
Let’s hope there are a few pins left standing for fans who prefer watching something happy once in awhile on this show. Sonny fans are on red alert already and know that the roller coaster is making its way to the top before all hell breaks loose and it starts this year’s journey.
~*~2011 SONNY & BRENDA PREVIEW~*~
Brenda’s secrets come out and Carly thinks she has reasons to expose them. Then it says: Even the past can’t keep Sonny & Brenda apart. Sonny & Brenda are working to make their relationship work now & in the future…….”Amidst these difficult situations romance blooms from Sonny & Brenda! Sonny & Brenda are going to have a great romance to come”
“We’re going to see Sonny and Brenda finally have happiness as they prepare for a February wedding.”
“The flip side to the coin of unconditional love is revenge – and certainly, that is what both Carly and the Balkan have in mind. As a parent who has lost his son, the Balkan will stop at nothing to get what he thinks is justice for his family. Similarly, Carly will not be thwarted until she sees Brenda and Dante pay.”
“There will be tremendous obstacles for Sonny & Brenda! They will come under the fire of a grieving yet violent father and a grizzly mother.”
There will be a wedding on Feb 18th. Will Brenda actually get married though?
At the end of the wedding there will be a resurrection of something from the past event….

Dr. Lee informs Sam that the fertility procedure only has a 50% success rate.
Sam flashes back to the loss of her baby girl (who was stillborn)
The issue of the fertility procedure opens a door once thought closed and causes both Sam and Jason to reconsider the possibilities.. “It’s mixed emotions, because he has a son [Jake] that he doesn’t see, and the reason he doesn’t have that little guy is because of [his lifestlye/mob association]. How can he justify having another baby? He loves Sam, obviously, and he wants to support her and do what he can do for her, so he’s in a catch-22. He gets to thinking of things like when Michael was shot… he has to look at his life and say, ‘This isn’t set up for anybody.hen Michael got shot, that [made Jason think], ‘What am I doing?’ This is like my son, and everything bad that’s happened to this kid is because of us.’” says Steve Burton in SOW.
Sam basically says the same thing, “No, my life’s not really set up for kids, either, with my job and what I do. She says, ‘I’m just looking into it right now’. She’s nonchalantly looking into it. There’s no decision at this point; there’s no, ‘Hey, I want to do this.’ It’s just, ‘I’m going to see if it’s possible, and what the odds are.'”
Michael begins to open up to Jason about what happened in prison.
Instead of going to therapy, Molly puts on her matchmaker hat and attempts to get Abby and Michael back together.
Michael experiences a flashback and mistakenly (and briefly) attacks Dante
when he is startled.
Jason intervenes between Abby and Brandon when he comes upon Brandon getting a little rough with her. Brandon pulls a gun, but Jason, naturally, manages to get it away from Brandon.
Jason once again tries to convince Abby to come clean with Michael about why she really broke things off with him, but she is unwilling to risk Michael’s future. Jason later tries to get Michael to back off and respect Abby’s wishes.
Brandon catches up to Abby again, and assaults her when he spots her with Michael. Abby’s scream brings on Michael’s flashback of Carter. Naturally, he flies into a rage and attacks Brandon. Jason hears the commotion in the ally and pulls Michael off of Brandon.
Jason’s first instinct is to cover up Michael’s beating of Brandon. However, Dante believes that Michael is a hero and has nothing to be ashamed of or to hide.
This is what will lead into Michael’s confession that he was sexually assaulted in prison.
Abby examines her bruises.Sam visits with Abby at GH.
Michael has a surprise for Abby after bringing her home from GH.

In SID, Guza previews that Matt and Maxie will “play a big part, among other things, in the resolution of Patrick’s story”. Expect their romance to go to the next level.
The story involving Lisa, Patrick and Robin, will, “come to a head during Sweeps and will climax shortly after. Lisa will go to dramatic lengths and it will explode” , declares Guza in SID. Johnny, “plays a big part as a bearer of the truth that Robin needs in order to put Lisa away!”.
Liz sees her past romantic interests move on with other women. The more that happens, the more desperate she becomes. She does another paternity test, one that Helena knows nothing about.
Meanwhile, Lucky and Siobhan’s relationship turns out to be the real deal.
Ethan and Maya struggle to define their relationship. Complications will arise, will they remain faithful?
At the end of Brenda and Sonny’s wedding on Feb. 18th, there will be a resurrection of something from the past event. In SOD, Guza declares, “There will be a wedding. It will be lovely and it will blow your socks off. There is a two fold threat. You’ve got Hurricane Carly with information that could blow this whole thing out of the water, and then you’ve got The Balkan, who is targeting the wedding for something much more sinister.”
Dante could lose it all when Brenda’s secret comes out, and we finally learn what happened to Brenda’s baby. Several couples will be left in shambles.
Sam and Jason await big news.
How will the couple deal with the danger that has prevented Jason from being a Daddy to Jake?
Guza in SID, “That’s the issue. It’s not Sam fighting with Jason about it. Not at all. They are in this completely together. But how do they both get to the place where they could feel comfortable doing what both of them desperately would like, which is to have a child together? How do they get past the danger? What has to happen? And something huge will happen that will get them past this impasse!”
Liz makes her exit from Port Charles and General Hospital.
