Children of Duh-vorce
I will say, without irony or bitterness, that I appreciated the spirit of Sonny and Will’s scenes on Tuesday. It made sense for Will to try and connect with Sonny over Justin and Adrienne’s impending divorce, given his upbringing as a child whose parents were constantly breaking up/making up/attempting to kill one another.
That said, I can’t help but play Continuity Police here. Will asked if this was the first divorce Sonny could remember between his parents (which is an insane question for any town but Salem), and Sonny said it was, so Will proceeded to give him a primer on how to handle having divorced parents. Which is all very sweet until you remember — as I do, and as the writers apparently do not — that Justin and Adrienne got divorced about five years ago! Justin came back to town solo, Adrienne followed later, they were definitely not together, and then he proposed to her on the pier and they got remarried offscreen.
I saw a suggestion on another board that they might be playing it as though Sonny were Ambiguous Soap Kid Age back then, so he wouldn’t have remembered, but this was right around the time Sonny appeared in Salem in the form of Freddie Smith. He came back to town with wedding presents for his parents. And he’s one of the few kids who hasn’t really been SORASed at all, so you can’t even wank it that he was in his ambiguous 8-to-18-years-old phase during the period of the divorce, like JJ was when Jack died. This show…!
