    Carly “sees” Sonny’s “ghost” but he’s still alive.

    Carly “sees” Sonny’s “ghost” but Sonny is still alive.

    So she’s actually just having a conversation with herself and I guess a “vision” she has of what she thinks is Sonny’s “ghost”?!

    Is that how to describe it?!

    I thought she's just imagining him. He's back in his vampire costume. I am not a fan of that look. He is so handsome with the salt and pepper hair and casual clothing. He always was. That's why I loved Sonny in the wheelchair, not because he was in one, but I think that's just such a handsome look for him.

      In the real world, this would be called psychosis.

        If she actually saw him it would be, but it's in her imagination.

      It's just a dramatic technique. We're not supposed to think that is Sonny's ghost. It's Carly imagining what Sonny would say if he were with her.

        It was a manifestation of what Carly really wants…Jason. They want us to believe Carly is struggling with this.

          I don't believe this at all. There was a time when I think it would have been true but not now. She IS struggling with this.

        Little does Carly know that her vision of the Sonny she knew and loved is now the grizzled, gray-headed, whisker faced, Smike of NF.

        That's what I thought especially from the way she greeted Jason when he came home. They can now go full ahead. Sonny has given them his blessing. Sorry, I'm not with it! I don't know what Jax was talking to Jason about ending "it" or what "it" is but maybe Jason wouldn't look so miserable. LOL I think a serious train wreck is waiting to happen.

          So literally everything “Sonny” is saying to her is what Carly is imaging “Sonny” would say to her if he was actually a “ghost”. It’s a vision directly from Carly’s imagination. Her mind!

            'Sonny', giving her permission, to make her feel better, about what she's doing. It usually works out your way if you are doing all the imagining.

          Carly's imaginary conversations with Sonny (in her head and heart) are only what she WANTS to believe. Sonny would never be that complacent about Jarly's MOC: What's right for me (Sonny) is not right for thee (Jason/Carly). Carly had 2 MOCs' with Sonny in CarSon's past, generally legal manuevers to protect Sonny from going to jail.

            If Carly wasn’t genuinely struggling, they wouldn’t write her pretending to be. Carly as written is grieving her husband,

              I agree with you. It actually changed the way I view Carly's feelings about marrying Jason. She cried over missing Sonny, and then she cried in a sad way about the possibility of marrying Jason will change their friendship.
              It was heart- wrenching to me.
              I'm a Behavioral Psychologist and the word " psychotic" never entered my mind. It was her and her conversation with herself, and imaging the other half of it.

              I thought it was very well done!!

            Technically imo it’s always from their mind when a character is visited by someone they lost. Like Zander visiting Cam. JMO though

              Yes we have seen ghosts that we were lead to believe were ghosts at the time come back to life.
              So I think it is in the mind of the the dreamer

            MB has already reported the Sonny return will be EXPLOSIVE! That signals mega Anger and Betrayal emotions on Sonny/Smike's part.
            See I think Carly knows Sonny extremely well. She know exactly how he would react. If he were truly dead, I don’t think he’d want her to be a widow forever even though he wouldn’t love her moving on. It’s only betrayal because he’s not actually dead Imo. So it’s not necessarily her actions or choices but his existence which she’s unaware of

              Carly just having a daydream when no one else was around. Talking to herself. Everyone does that sometimes ….don’t they?!

                LOL I hope this is just a dramatized view of what was going on in her head. If someone came by hey would see her looking "lost in space" but not talking to Sonny

                @OLTL’69 Years ago on Y/R when the head writer killed off John Abbott, his grown son Jack saw his father’s ghost constantly. Oh boy did they ever talk up a storm. This went on for a very long time…maybe a decade. Then they started having Ghost-John talk occasionally to his other kids Ashley, Traci, Billy.
                I know they didn’t kill off Sonny…but I think we’ve all seen this kind of thing happen even on sitcoms. I’ll just call it ‘Poetic License” whatever that’s supposed to be. Maybe even borderline science fiction/fantasy.

              I dont think it is psychosis to remember a loved one and have a conversation - in your head - with him/ her about a big decisiom

                I have conversations with my dead mother all the time (in my head). She and I were very close and she was my hero! When I am feeling down I still "go" to her so to speak. I think it is very common.

                I talk to my dear departed Dad in my head often. I miss him and like to keep him near me. I can totally see why Carly talks to Sonny. Sometimes when someone dies suddenly, it takes a long time to believe that are gone.

              I agree with BelieveinMe. She was probably just imagining him or was just a hallucinations.

              Something tells me the writers are doing this to try and rectify Patrick seeing Robin's "ghost" despite that she was very much alive and was being held captive. But then again if you think about it it all just goes to show why some people don't believe in ghosts. As an aside, I don't know if I subscribe to the whole "there's no such thing as ghosts" philosophy because I do believe in spirits/souls so why not ghosts?

                Why would the writers of today care about a S/L from years ago? This was written to let us know how Carly really feels about Sonny & Jason and has nothing at all to do with Robin & Patrick..

                @Carablue
                I'm not saying the writers care about a storyline from years ago and I know it's not about Robin & Patrick. What I was meaning to say was Carly was hallucinating Sonny to the point where she thinks it's his ghost in a similar way Patrick saw what he believed was Robin's ghost but being that she was very much alive at the time, was just his imagination.

                @c83gilles
                I don't remember.
