For this fan, it appears that we have arrived at the junction where we recently are going backwards led by some of the more powerful/persuasive folks behind the scenes that are calling the shots - who are only in their jobs because they owe some type of loyalty to either maurice bernhard or to whomever has been supporting him. Sonny was able to hide behind Luke (and Robert).
It is a soap opera called 'General Hospital' that spends its resources and five decades of good will on glorifying really despicable characters (e.g., Corinthos family) that have no saving grace (like doing something positive in employment - e.g., doctors, nurses, cops).
Pointing my finger straight at the person who rehired back SBu to reprise the role of Jason the enforcer and got rid of Billy Miller. Sam and Jason's fans don't seem to be helping the ratings much.
Might as well stick a fork in this soap opera if they don't get rid of the Corinthos family.
ETA: It's not like I don't watching a good villain (waves to Maura West), but at least provide a villain that is either good looking or can act - preferably both.
