    I think he will be Joe Scully's son, Joe Scully Jr.

    I bet he is playing Joe Jr for sure. Johnny's Dad is dead.

    How did it take you guys so long to figure out he is Joe Jr? The first moment that this was posted I was telling people it was Joe's son. I mean anyone who ever saw Joe Scully must have known right off the bat. Brilliant casting.

    Also Kristinas producer clearly appears to be Joe and Kates kid. Don't know if he knows about Joe or not but he might think Sonny is his dad and that is why he is getting close. Or Joe did find and raise him and the producer dude is there to help his dad take down Sonny.

    The new guy will either be the 'Joe" guy who raped Connie and Trey will be his son. Try has to be older than Dante liked SunKissed said. If Trey is Connie's son then he already knows about Connie, which will be interesting. Steinmetz is too old to be Connie's son but looks the right age to be Joe.
