Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) has always been a man of honor. It’s true has has made mistakes just like the rest of us, but when it comes to honor and family, Sonny has been consistent.
General Hospital fans have been questioning Sonny’s recent behavior, digging deeper into how he can suddenly become so loyal to someone who betrayed him and his entire family, while throwing the ones who have always had his back to the wayside.
General Hospital spoilers reveal there could be much more going on with Sonny than what we see on the surface.
What is Stockholm Syndrome?
General Hospital rumors suggest that Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) could be right on the money with her suggestion that Sonny is suffering from Stockholm Syndrome. Stockholm sometimes manifests as a result of an abusive situation. Captivity being one of them. Sonny was held captive by Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros) which may have lead to this unhealthy coping strategy. Sonny has pushed away the ones who have always been by his side, now staying loyal to a liar.
General Hospital fans can’t help but to agree with Carly, questioning whether or not there is something deeper going on with Sonny. We can’t seem to wrap our heads around his recent behavior, wondering if the only good explanation is that Sonny isn’t right in the head after the traumatic experience. Would Sonny really choose Nina over Carly and their entire family if he was in the right ‘State of Mind’?
