Spoilers for General Hospital hint Carly Spencer (Laura Wright) has been hit hard by the news of Sonny Corinthos’ (Maurice Benard) proposal to Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros). She had never idea that Sonny would go to this lengths with someone who, in her eyes, wasn’t deserving of being a member of their family. Carly is only able to consider how this might affect her kids. She doesn’t want Nina to be anywhere near them, much less to have a claim to them through her family.
It’s clear that Carly isn’t going to be dishing out congratulatory hugs, especially considering the history between Sonny and Carly. But the one person she might slight the most during this chaos is her own man, Drew Cain (Cameron Mathison), who isn’t going to be able to ignore just how bothered Carly is by Sonny moving on.

Drew is going to take note of that early on, and the tension stemming from that will certainly affect her relationship with Drew. How is she supposed to reconcile how happy she feels with Drew alongside how sad she is to see Sonny this in love with someone else?

The more that Carly delves into Sonny’s private affairs instead of her own, the more Drew is going to start wondering what happened to their relationship and whether he even wants it anymore.
This might lead to a lot of soul searching. No matter how much Carly tries to play it off as concern for Sonny — a forever-important person in her heart — Drew will struggle to shake the feeling that there is more to it.
