As much as I really am not a big fan of Brian’s character (though good god I do LOVE me some Brant Daugherty, seriously, I adore him; and Brian is good looking which is pretty much why I made that meme a while back), I can’t say I’m upset about these latest spoilers.
Not to mention, I think Days has proven over time that they know what they’re doing with these characters. I have no reason not to keep the faith at this point, after all we’ve been through. And I’m confident that we’ll get a good outcome and payoff from this when it’s all set and done.
One thing that did cross my mind is that I do love that we’re going to see a vulnerable side of Sonny. FINALLY it looks like he’s gonna be be fleshed out a bit more as a character, and it looks like we’re going to see a side of him that’s not really been explored that much, if at all. It’ll show again that he’s really human and can act on emotion, too, like what happened when he kissed Will and lashed out at him a bit after the explosion when Will didn’t know what to think of what was happening. Sonny’s really hurt after all that’s gone on with the secrets, so I can’t be surprised that he might do something for a very brief bit out of impulse.
I remember what he said right before he and Will finally did it. That he wasn’t really a monk since he came back to Salem, but all the time he was holding out hope that he’d be with Will. I think this is going to be an example of that which we’ll actually get to see in real time.
I’m also sure that the Will angst we will get from this will be fabulous and it’ll break my fanboy heart like nothing else on TV can. It’s a bit twisted to say this, but I LOVE his woobie faces so much. Sigh.
But really, in the end, this is just another speed bump along the road of greatness for Will and Sonny’s characters and I think it’ll make their reunion all the more special.
