I was kind of hoping that the days of these sentiments were over, but alas… no. I know that the current regime hasn’t had a lot of time to make too many changes and they may not even be interested in making the changes I want, but pretty much anything that has to do with Johnny lately sends me into rage blackouts. I used to LOOOVVVEEE Johnny with triple hearts and rainbows but now, my finger twitches towards the fast forward button on my remote whenever I see him on the screen.
First we get Johnny taking advantage of a mentally unstable woman. Yes, people have pointed out that he has stopped short of raping her… bravo?
Then he sleeps with Carly. That train wreck speaks for itself. I want to gouge my eyes out every time they are schmoopy on screen.
And finally, the complete demolition of his relationship with Olivia makes me want to get stabby. First, Olivia feels the need to try to bribe him to stay away from Steve instead of appealing to his history with her. Then, there was this:
SONNY: What do you want me to do? [about Johnny bribing Steve]
OLIVIA: Whatever it takes.
Olivia wants Sonny to kill Johnny for Steve. Steve! Wet blanket, less fun than watching paint dry, Steve! And Sonny! She wants Sonny to do this! So much is wrong with this scenario! Sure, she backs off the statement, but seriously? She knows Sonny and how much he hates Johnny. She has to know that she is putting Johnny’s life at risk by going to him.
The fact that they are not honoring Johnny and Olivia’s history at all is so infuriating. The fact that Johnny has become a smug, selfish, inconsiderate asshole is intolerable.
And don’t even get me started on this Franco bullshit. I knew they were going there and yet it was still so incredibly nauseating.
Good thing we had this as a palate cleanser:
I kind of love that these two characters have a history together. And it actually makes sense! Will wonders ever cease! Let’s hope we get more of this and less of Johnny… at all, ever.
