Maybe General Hospital has gone back and forth once too often on the Cassadine prince. Is he a hero? Is he a heel? Viewers aren’t sure, which makes it tough to buy what he’s selling. It also makes it tricky for them to get behind the idea of him having a real relationship with Ava (who, we might add, is widely loved).
4. Carly and Sonny (Tie)
Maurice Benard and Laura Wright’s supercouple may run Port Charles, but some fans would be just as happy to run the mobster and his moll out of it. She’s “just a loud, obnoxious, interfering bully,” wrote Soaps.com reader Sue Bibeault. As for Sonny, “he gets away with everything,” reminded Elizabeth Ramos.
Whether he is or he isn’t really the offspring of Anna and her longtime pursuer, Faison, viewers overall aren’t digging the ripped Machiavelli. Unlike the character who tops this list, none of the respondents to our Facebook query even said that they loved to hate him — they just hated him. Ow, people. Ow.
Ha — shortly after we asked which characters you hated the most, your No. 1 pick was sent plummeting to her death. (As if anyone but Duke Lavery ever really dies in Port Charles). “There is no redeeming that whiny crybaby,” Soaps.com reader Kelly Greene Burns said of Chloe Lanier’s character. “I am so sick of hearing, ‘My life is bad because of Carly.’” Well, enjoy the reprieve, however brief it may be!
