As I watched Monday's General Hospital it occurred to me that there may be a potential pairing that perhaps the writers have not considered yet, Sonny and Liz. Think about it, they both seem to be completely out of touch with reality, which may be enough to convince them that they could actually have a functional relationship. In fact they may very well be the most delusional people in all of Port Charles. Liz thinking that her connection with Lucky might be enough for him to forgive her, and Sonny thinking his connection with Dante might be enough to earn his forgiveness.
Still not convinced that these two are a perfect match? I have formulated a list of their compatibilities just in case.
1.) They are both incapable of taking responsibility for their actions because there always seem to be extenuating circumstances for their mistakes.
2.) They always manage to hurt their children without even trying.
3.) They are both impulsive and never think of the consequences of their actions.
4.) Liz's children have different fathers. Sonny's children have different mothers.
5.) They both have a difficult time forgiving people who have hurt them, but they expect to be forgiven immediately after causing someone else pain.
6.) They are usually able to charm or manipulate their way out of sticky situations.
7.) Despite their mistakes they have both managed to keep people in their life that will gladly defend their actions no matter what they are.
8.) They keep repeating the same mistakes, expecting a different outcome.
9.) They both seem to be attracted to some form of danger, despite how it may affect their children.
10.) They are both incredibly skilled at playing the victim.
Of course this entire post has been an exercise in jest, but imagine what it would be like if these two actually became involved. Their relationship would undoubtedly cause friction between Sonny and Jason. And there would obviously be more than a little tension between Sonny and the Spencer clan, given the Lucky and Liz connection. Actually the more I think about it a Sonny and Liz pairing may provide some interesting storyline material...something to think about.
