This is it! The reunion we’ve all been waiting for, the return of this show’s greatest supercouple: Sonny and his favorite killer for hire are together again! Tears were shed, hands were clutched. Maurice Bernard honestly showed more reaction than Jason’s own wife did. Which is only appropriate, considering he was Jason’s life partner first.
And on the flip side, Billy Miller played Jason like a man who’d rather claw his own skin off than sit through more tales of Jason Morgan. Which was, frankly, AMAZING to watch:
JASON: Okay, stop! That’s enough. I’ve had enough! I can’t do this with you. I can’t, okay? I don’t know what happened between the day I got shot and the day I got hit by a car and woke up in the hospital. I don’t remember a single thing, so maybe don’t make me suffer your unfounded optimism! How about you stop.
SONNY: You’re gonna remember, though. We’ll give you money, anything you need.
JASON: Oh, you’re gonna give me money? You’re offering me anything I need? This doesn’t bother you right here, the way I’m talking to you wife right now in your own house? This doesn’t bother you?
SONNY: You’ve seen me much worse, trust me.
I can’t decide which part of this speech was better — Sonny basically trying to bribe Jason to be his friend? Or Sonny dismissing the idea that he would ever defend Carly? If “trust me, I’ve been way more verbally abusive to my wife than you!” doesn’t convince you to be besties with a guy, what will?
No one writing this show can possibly be unaware of the irony in having Sonny literally tell Jason the story of how they met because he was running away from the Quartermaines for trying to force him to be a person he didn’t remember. Right? RIGHT? Because it’s too beautiful to watch Sonny and Carly doing the exact same thing for which they’ve castigated the Alan and Monica for years.
The best part is how completely in character this all is. This man Sonny and Carly both claim to love so much was nearly married the day before, found out instead that he’s already married to someone else and has two kids, a mother (that no one’s bothered to contact yet, but WHATEVER Sonny obviously needed to know before Monica) and extended family he doesn’t remember. He’s lost and confused and clearly hurting.
Good thing he’s got such good best friends who obviously care about his feelings! I’m sure they’re both really sorry he’s going through such a difficult time–HAHAHAHAHA. Sorry, I can’t even finish writing the sentence with a straight face. Here’s what Sonny actually regrets:
SONNY: I just wish things were different, you know? I’ve gotta tell you, I’ve never needed Jason Morgan more than I do now.
Yup. Sounds about right.
