Welcome to the dark side NM! >)

I'm of the belief that any FICTIONAL character can be redeemed. We've seen Luke go from raping Laura, to them being one of the biggest and most popular couples on the GH canvas. 8)

I have no qualms with enjoying a character for their ability to entertain me, regardless of what they've done in the past. >)

I guess the way I have always looked at a soap is just that..a soap, not real life. In real life, I would have hated Franco. In soaps, I absolutely love him with Carly. I loved Johnny. I loved Adam in Y & R, I love Damien in Vampire Diaries, my mom loved JR in Dallas. I guess I have this tendency to love these bad boys because deep down they show these redeemable qualities or shows something of themselves that makes you go ahhhh. Makes it a lot easier to have that hate/love relationship! lol

I love Damon too. I love most bad boys. To be honest, I just find them far more interesting than the good guys. Probably because I hate judgy and hypocritical characters and most good guys are both of those things whereas the bad boys not so much because they have no room to judge LOL

Quote Bizlet: I really have enjoyed RH both as Todd and Franco he has great chemistry with Cary. I hope their relationship lasts a long time. The rescue scene was great I am happy to see that Franco was the one to save Carly. Part of me is happy is to see Michael, Dante, Sonny and Morgan eat crow.

Only part? LOL. - they're so smug I am VERY happy. I love Roger. Have loved him since he started playing Todd Manning on OLTL about 25.years ago. He's so awesome!

Quote Nightmoves: PLEASE MAKE IT STOP. JD, this should make you happy. I liked Carly and Franco yesterday. I was even rooting for them 8)

Somehow these writers are starting to make me like these two together. There, I said it. I don't know if I will become a 'fan' of this couple, but I really enjoyed their scenes yesterday, found them believable and felt for them :~


I keep going back & forth. I start to get into them as a couple, like when he scooped her up in his arms to save her! LOVED IT. But then I remember all the things he's done & I think - HOW on earth, not matter WHAT could Carly ever forgive him??!!?? What Mother could be with a man who in ANY way had even the slighted role in her child being raped???!! I just can't get past that.



This is what gets me too >(


what if it was Sonny or Jason that "hired" Carter to watch over Michael and then Carter ON HIS OWN raped Michael, would we blame Sonny or Jason the same way. Franco didn't tell Carter to rape michael. If Carter was in jail for raping boys then yes Franco was an idiot for getting him to watch over him but he wasnt a rapist and I could be wrong but didn't Franco know Carter from the past and if so he thought he could trust him. I know maybe I am justifying but I can't help myself. :]


Did they ever say what crimes Carter was in for, I don't recall naming his specif crime and if they didn't name his crime then how do we know he wasn't in for raper. And IF Franco knew Carter then wouldn't he know Carter s tenditices...I strogly supect Michael was NOT the first boy Carter ever raped

Yeah but unfortunately, just as I feared, they're all still pretty much blaming Franco anyway. Saying it's his fault because it's his mother that targeted Carly and they even seem annoyed that Carly is grateful to him ~)

I am never going to like Franco, ever BUT I don't have to like a character to admit when they do right / good. Franco did everything in his power to save Carly and he did. THIS TIME he did a vary good thing and I for one have no problem giving him is due prase.
