267 January 10th, 2013 General Hospital’s Laura Wright Weighs-In On The Future Of The Carly/Todd Relationship!

General Hospital’s Todd Manning is in hot water these days in Port Charles!  After finally kick-starting a romance with Carly Corinthos Jax, Todd’s machinations in the baby switch plot with Heather Webber, and the heartache it caused Sam and Jason, has finally come to the attention of Carly and she is devastated when Todd admits what he did.

However in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Daytime Emmy winner Laura Wright (Carly) discusses the future of the relationship between Todd (Roger Howarth) and Carly, and from what we can discern, this dynamic duo could be in each other’s orbit for the long haul!

Wright revealed, “The relationship with Todd, in my opinion, and I’m pretty sure Roger as well, is a big deal!  Roger and I talked to the writers at the GH Christmas Party about how, yes, Blair and Todd are wonderful and Sonny and Carly have their history, but there is something about Carly/Todd that is whole new world.  For these two characters what’s happened between them is extremely emotional, realizing that they have fallen in love with someone and they thought it could be forever and now that’s messed up and it’s very difficult.”

As angry as Carly is at this point with Todd, Wright points out that deep down, Carly does not want Todd out of her life citing: “In her heart, she wants him to try and win her back and tell her that she’s the most important thing in his world and he will do whatever it takes to fix it. I have a feeling that writers are going to be forced into it.  (Laughs) I am telling you once all these scenes air the fans are going to go nuts!”

So soapers, are you on-board for a full steam ahead complicated, sexy, dramatic, and fun love story between Carly and Todd?  Let us know!

    oh, me too! I’ve been watching since they started… since I was just a widdle kid! ;-) always loved todd – except for the old rape stuff, of course! And I really really like him on GH and with Carly. Did you watch Roger when he was on Prey years ago? I still have it on VHS!

    Melissa Miller replied

    Right on!

    Jay replied

    Viewers will never 100 % agree with a pairing of characters (poor writers) . I personally LOVE the Todd and Carly Together. I’ve never seen Carly look vulnerable /nervous around a male character as she does with Todd. Carly inspires Todd to be a better man (he admitted he doesn’t want to disappoint her ) I really hope they find their way back to each other.

    Laura is one of very favorites and has chemistry woth a doorknob, and I love Roger H. Also but I still want Todd and Blair to find a way to make it work. They share children, history and love. Carly needs a new man or bring back Jax.

    I totally agree.. Todd and Blair are Soulmate and belng together.. They have a 2decade Lovestory that is magical. Kassie and Roger are Awesome together as Todd and Blair and they deserve to be reunited. We were promised The Mannings on GH, we tuned in and we support GH.. Blair is the one true love and only friend that Todd has ever had/wanted/needed.
    Carly belongs with Jax or Sonny.

    This Carly & Todd thing is utter crap & I’ll be glad when they’ll both move on to better storylines. They’ve contrived a friendship and then a romance between those two characters from day one. Yes the actors have good chemistry together but the writing has to back it up or else it’s just out of character crap.

    What do they really know about each other? Does Carly even know about everything Todd has done in the past? We all know she’s pretty much dabbled in everything shady but any woman would think twice before getting involved with a rapist, let alone one who led a gang rape. I also don’t buy that she’d take Todd back after everything he did to her precious Jason. If there’s one defining character trait that all the versions of Carly have had over the years, it’s their steadfast loyalty to Jason.

    And I can’t even begin to tell you how out of character Todd has been portrayed in this relationship. Todd has had intimacy issues since the gang rape & just because he’s been tortured for 8 years, should not make those issues magically disappear. If anything, it should make him even more skittish. Blair taught him how to be intimate with someone again after Marty’s rape & it took Todd no less than 5 years before he could sleep with Tea. He’s known Carly for less than a year & already he’s taken her to bed? So out of character it’s painful to watch.

    So no, I don’t want to be subjected to one more minute of this dreck.

    I agree with your every word. Todd is a complex and dark character while Carly is just a shallow and selfish aging valley girl. In her presence, Todd starts to become mundane and uninteresting swallowed up the great big as, er, abyss that is is Carly. Moreover, they have NO chemistry–terrible couple, just terrible.

    Denise replied

    Couldn’t have said it better myself. Todd needs/craves Blair.. Blair and Todd belong together and will be reunited.. let’s not even compare this “Forced Codd” friendship to wht ToddnBlair share for almost 20years.

    kelly replied

    I watched just a little bit and the actress who plays Carly seemed to push herself on that poor man who plays Todd. Is it just me or was there zero chemistry? It seemed like that actress was all over him. I couldn’t watch it. When I used to watch this show, there was a real pretty actress with brown hair that I thought was “Carly”. She had a softer side but was strong too. This actress with Todd comes across as a hard, thick skinned person. I thought Carly was a mom, unless I must have the wrong show. This can’t be the same one.

    OMG PLEASE DONT MAKE ME HURL NO WAY NO WAY UGH!!! I TOTALLY DONT agree about ms Wrights opinion of Todd and Carly. They are BORING together i usually watch a few minutes then ff those scenes. The pairing is VERY FORCED and even though Mr. Howarth has chemistry with a almost everyone i TOTALLY dont see it with these two. i certainly dont find them sexy or fun and considering just two weeks ago todd was jumping for joy that blair is not with tomas anymore and we know he still loves blair these two for me are MORE forced down my throat then ever. I hope that the victor is alive is finally setteled so we and todd find out he didnt kill his brother. That is the one point that is keeping todd and blair apart. For me the character of carly USED to be a kickass strong women but lately she has(as well as todd) been watered down to a mess who doesnt know when someone is lying to her face???come on where is the carly of years ago who would kick the ass of any man who lied to her.The only hope i have for all this is when PP happens and OLTL is brought back Roger Howarth, Michael Easton and Kristen Alderson go back home to llanview where they have family interactions and are not written OOC PLEASE SOAP GODS FREE TODD MANNING!

    Tarly? Oh how absurd. Carly has such a huge butt that it eclipses the sun as well as Todd. And why does she insist on wearing the most unflattering jeans 24/7 which only accent her gigantic butt? She is physically out of proportion with Todd.

    Reply

    Jessica replied

    Can’t you STFU about Carly’s huge ass? What is your problem? I am not a fan of LW and I think Carly is disgusting as a character, and I despise Todd and Carly, but for Christ’s sake, your constant, tedious and repetitive comments about a perfectly normal ass on a perfectly normal person are just fucked up. I mean, FUCKED UP. Every single blog you write has nasty comments about LW’s ass. Would you be happier if she had an eating disorder? Give it a fucking rest and confine your piss-poor writing to content and acting instead of physical attributes, which have zero to do with anything. I know you must be miserable in bumblefuck Wisconsin, teaching communications to a bunch of community college students, but don’t take it out on Carly’s ass. JESUS.

    Mocha replied

    I guess people with nothing but long backs don’t have an appreciation for those with ample bottoms. I appreciate LW’s shape, and I bet other REAL WOMEN, her husband, and her male co-stars probably do as well… it’s refreshing to not see a stick figure on TV. Oh, and I love Tarly, BTW.

    gloria replied

    I love them too! Can’t understand all these negative comments. I just think Roger Howarth is so damn funny & SO CUTE-Dante said what are you doing with that pillow & he goes “fluffing it” when he had been trying to smother Johnny! Todd to me is someone who no matter what horrible things he does you just somehow understand/forgive it (like his sister Viki does!) And Laura Wright is the BEST Carly ever! When Tamara Braun played Carly I could not stand the character. Nothing against Tamara. Laura Wright rocks & so does Roger Howarth. Go Carly & Todd!!

    I agree, go, Carly. Go straight to Y&R with Jason. Laura ok, but no match for Todd.

    Jenn replied

    The negative comments are because Kassie Depaiva tweeted her crazy fans to make negative comments on this. It is rude and tacky and she got called out for it by many soapers. She needs to find something else to do.

    CTwildheart replied

    Really Jenn? I hadn’t heard that…and it seems out of character for Kassie to say that. Glad she was called out on it.

    I didn’t hear that – but I am not a fan of Todd and Carly romantically together. I liked their friendship.

    Jessica replied

    Margie, you’re high, KDP doesn’t have “crazy fans” . I follow her on Twitter and she never did anything like that. Todd and Carly are disgusting together but that has to do with the revolting character of Carly, not KDP.

    HUGE mistake to bash a – and – she’s just plain wrong.

    She sounds pretty desperate to say relevant in daytime.

    Kat replied

    what couple?? Todd and Carly are no couple. They had sex one time and then Todd’s secrets blew. It’s desperate of LW to presume that there’s some “forever love” kind of dynamic there between Todd and Carly when a few weeks ago Todd was crumbling up Blair and Toerenzo’s wedding announcement and screaming about it, and then did cartwheels when he found out he could stop Blair’s wedding and did. Carly’s a dumbass if she thinks Todd will ever feel about her the way he feels about Blair. Blair is Todd’s soulmate and one true love. It was completely inappropriate for LW to talk about TnB like she did, and for her to equate Todd and Carly’s FORCED and CONTRIVED friendship as something that has anything to do with forever. RMFE. They had a one night stand basically. She should be pimping her “forever love” with Ingo/Jax, that’s who Carly should be calling right about now. Todd and Johnny have both made a fool out of Carly.

    Todd belongs with Blair and only Blair.

    Agree about those jail scenes! They were both rocking it! THey have chemistry but maybe it’s more the kind of chemistry that brings them both into being better actors than the sexual type of chemistry. That’s why if they stayed friends and good friends that tried to make each other better people… I would be happy with that too!

    I like Carly & Todd as friends, not as lovers. This Todd has had his history re-written so much, he’s nothing like who he started out as all those years ago. Of course everyone changes & matures, but some of those basic personality traits don’t change. This Todd is unrecognizable.
    I really believe the only women who would give him a chance in the love department are Blair and Tea because they’ve know him through it all and have an understanding of who and what he is…and why.

    Christine replied

    I respectfully disagree. :-)

    What about the choices that Carly has made in AJ, Jason, Sonny, Johnny, Shawn, Alcazar, Tony (a married man at the time). Jax was really the only decent choice she has made. Everyone else was or is in organized crime or a liar.

    Falling in love with Todd is not that unrealistic.

    gloria replied

    Agree Christine.

    SZima replied

    I never said Carly didn’t make horrible choices.
    I’m really just commenting on the fact that Todd, a rapist and a murderer, who had issues with intimacy, is now portrayed as a romantic hero. It just goes against his character.
    Also, it IS characteristic for Carly to fall for a guy like Todd…just too bad that she is. Jax was really the best man for her. Too bad she screwed it up!
    Finally, I love Todd when he’s mischievous and funny, but I get twitchy when he’s in ANY romantic situation.

    CTwildheart replied

    As much as I prefer Todd and Carly as friends – I have to disagree with your statement that Todd is unrecognizable. He is the same selfish screw-up he’s always been! He makes choices that blow up in his face and he lies & manipulates to cover it up – until it all comes out.
    The friendship between them was very real to me, as Carly CAN relate to Todd’s bad choices and how he handles them. If they took the friendship further and eventually had them become more involved, I would accept it better.

    Just wondering how long the “long haul” would actually be given the recent developments with Prospect Park’s revival of OLTL. Since they own the OLTL characters, how long can any of them stay on GH once OLTL goes back into production?

    Also, in the most recent GH promo, the heat between Laura’s Carly and Sean K.’s A.J. is palpable. Those two generated more heat together in those few seconds in the promo than Todd and Carly have in all of their time together on GH. If I was Laura, I’d be all over a Carly/AJ pairing!

    Hell to the NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO this is a toxic contrived and FORCED pairing. 3/4 weeks ago Todd was telling Starr that he is still in love with Blair and is waiting her out. “Todd and Blair are wonderful and all”?? are you kidding me?? Todd and Blair are the love of each other’s lives and they are still very much in love with each other.

    Blair needs to be brought on PRONTO so that the audience can see just how much of a nothing Carly is to Todd in comparison to Blair.

    Please GMAB how presumptiuous of LW to say she thinks the writers will be “forced” to write some future story for Todd and Carly. Todd needs to fight to get HIS FAMILY back.

    All I can say is BRING BLAIR BACK NOW AND STOP THIS BS!!!!!!!!! and then SEND TODD and BLAIR home to Llanview.

    There always have to be obstacles (storyline that is) in the way for a making of a super couple. This strengthens the characters, their relationship and fans start to root for them. Carly and Todd have that potential and hope the writers keep them going. Blair has chemistry with a lot of men. It would be wonderful for her to find someone who doesn’t turn out to be a psychopath or spy. Jack needs a positive male role model in his life.

Todd going this long without going out there and searching for his OTB makes no sense. If he was able to leave TEA, a woman he had MUCH more history with and shared much more with, on an ISLAND to go search for Blair, there is NO reason the writers should INSULT us and tell us that somehow the 5 minute thing he’s had with Carly is so special that they’re meant to be together. The Carly fans will find another man to root for Carly with, let them give us back our TnB 20 year supercouple and quit being greedy!

    Honestly, I have no words. I cannot believe that Todd has been this destroyed since his arrival in Port Charles. I mean RC has force-fed this contrived pairing since day 1 – from that stupid Cosmo quiz to reassuring Carly that she’s beautiful every single day to telling her she is the ONLY friend he’s EVER had. No Todd fan can actually think that that last part is ok. It totally rewrites his whole history. He’s had friends in Blair, but that was REAL friendship, and he wasn’t lying to her the whole time. He was friends with Tea and Sam Rappaport… Like the only way Ron can make this pairing exist is by completely rewriting both character’s histories. Never mind how Todd has completely forgotten about his family, never mind how Carly forgot about Jason… Ugh. This is just so wrong on so many levels and I honestly don’t know how Roger could be ok with it because this is just as bad as TSJ’s Victor. They’ve basically replaced Blair with Carly in Todd’s life and gave them a poor man’s version of their story – no history, no chemistry, no depth, no investment. Way to go, Ron. You’ve destroyed “Todd Manning” twice now. Carly can keep this pathetic shell of a once iconic character.

    Barbie replied

    I couldn’t agree more. I think it’s shameful that RC has taken the iconic character of Todd Manning and cut his balls off then turned him into more of a stand up comic. This whole thing with Carly is so unTodd like and I hate more than words can describe. GIVE ME BACK MY TODD.

    I think what they did with Todd was genius because they have made him likable. Before he was just a sociopathic rapist/criminal with major control issues. Oh but he loves his kids, so he’s a great guy? I mean it’s a soap opera. He has to have a leading lady at some point and Blair isn’t there. And what’s wrong with being funny???

    I have been watching GH since 1985 and not once…NEVER, EVER, not even for ONE minute, did I ever believe the Sonny/Carly relationship. It seemed too forced to me back when they first started, although admittedly, I was probably too hung up on Sonny and Brenda at the time. However I have liked Sonny with others (NOT Emily, ew gross) and I have liked Carly with others (not Johnny). Now, I am LOVING Todd and Carly. He’s such an ass who messes everything up ALL the time, but he’s so funny and charming and as much as I want to strangle him, I can’t help but love him! I am ALL for this couple lasting.

    Hoping for much more in the year to come and praying that the Prospect Park reboot does not interfere with their story.

    I would love to see where a long term pairing between Todd and Carly would end up. I think Roger and Laura have great chemistry. I think it is time for Todd to move on from Blair and see whatelese is out there for him romantically speaking. I also think it is time for Carly to more from both Sonny and Jax. So I say go for it, bring on Carly and Todd!!!

    NO! I see no chemistry. Todd has been written as unrecognizable to try to force this contrived couple. They do not work for me at all and I can no longer watch Todd, as the person on my screen is not Todd Manning. At this point I can only hope that Prospect Park forces GH to stop using the character of Todd, because they have thoroughly ruined him.

I adore Kassie DePaiva, but there is no way Blair would still be in love with Todd. Their pairing at the end was forced. Todd lied to her every other week. He gave away her baby and led her to believe it was dead. they should have been over at that point. Carly will forgive Todd, she has done terrible things too. I look forward to years of trouble from these two.

    Huh? He’s lied to her from the get go, I’ve never gotten anything other than lies/manipulation/humoring her from Roger’s performances in the Todd and Carly scenes. She’s the one who always seems to be pushing for more.

    I’ve seen Todd show guilt and remorse and heart with others on GH (Sam, Starr, Tea) but never with Carly. Todd has always been a complicated character, and it makes sense that his relationships would also be, but the idea of Carly and Todd as anything enduring doesn’t ring true to me. I’ve felt their friendship was contrived and ooc from the beginning, I don’t see how it’s continuation wouldn’t also be forced and contrived.

    I do like Todd’s interactions with many people on the GH canvas, and hope his primary story ceases being with Carly. She drags him down as a character and makes him less of the sympathetic (villain) that he should be.

    Janet one of the reasons she wants the pairing she gets non-stop air time since RH is a fave with the new regime just like MB&SB were faves with the old. And she along with so many others think they are the stars when it is an ensemble that makes it work. I read an interview she did about 6 months ago and it turned me off it should have been titled “Stuck on Me”.

    Hollers replied

    I watched all of the ABC soaps for a long long time, and Carly, Sonny, and Jason are what drove me away from GH after having watched since I was in grade school. LW is a fine actress – it isn’t her fault – but the character of Carly has diminished if not destroyed every male character she has been associated with, and Todd is no exception. She ruined Tony forever. AJ was turned from a well-meaning flawed hero into a self-pitying schmuck who couldn’t win under any circumstances even with his own family. She turned Jason into a baby thief and killed a sweet romance with Robin (whose character was also diminished by association). She damaged Sonny so thoroughly that his leading man credibility never recovered. The character is a horrendously narcissistic time-sucking vampire who really has NO redeeming qualities, but every character on the soap is supposed to think she’s beautiful and wonderful and smart and a great mother. Including, now, the biggest misanthrope ever, Todd Manning. The one great thing about Todd was that he used to be willing to call out the hypocrites, and now, thanks to Carly, that’s gone.

    Hmmmm so what happened to Todd the guy who was always about his family & children?? Now he’s been reduced to a male character who’s only purpose is getting laid. What set Todd Manning apart from every other male character in daytime was the fact that his main focus was ONE woman, his children & his family. Now even his relationship with “Shorty” is practically non-exsistent & he doesn’t even mention his two other children. Carly sucks the life out of every man she’s ever with. It’s always ALL about her. Even now with all of Todd’s lies being revealed shouldn’t this story be about how he kept a huge secret from his daughter about what really happened the night HIS grand daughter died just to save his own behind. The once iconic Todd Manning has become no different than every other daytime male character who ignores his own children just to get a piece of A$$. TRAGIC!!!!!

    I am in it for the long haul. When actors have amazing chemistry, you can’t deny it.

    I agree with curacaoman above in that I really wish Roger Howarth was playing a different character. It remains to be seen how Todd can offer anything to Carly. It’s also interesting there was no mention of Jax as (I feel) he was probably the closest she has had to a soulmate even though there is a ton of history with Sonny – Sonny’s endgame is Brenda whereas I always thought Carly’s was Jax. I was excited to see Carly and Johnny play out, but I didn’t see a fraction of the fire that Carly has with Todd. I think Johnny was best when he was with Lulu.

    What I do love about Laura Wright is that she is the best portrayer of Carly since the original, Sarah Brown. Everyone that came after her had Carly all wishy-washy and damsel in distress, but Laura plays her very vulnerable, but can kick your ass at the same time. I’ve been a fan of hers since her Loving/The City days.

    I can understand all the negativity towards their pairing and how it is out of Todd’s character, but we all need to remember that Todd is in Port Charles for a fresh start. Yes a leopard cannot change its spots (i.e., his lying), but I can believe that he can fall in love with someone else – especially when that woman has accepted him and all his faults from the beginning. Whenever there is a crossover something from the character is changed. You can’t tell me that Anna Devane was the same Anna Devane on GH when she was on AMC. I don’t understand why so many of you cannot suspend belief just a little bit. This is a soap opera after all. :-)

    I think the REAL issue now is that since AMC and OLTL are coming back, now instead of wanting more OLTL characters on GH many of you want your old characters back and rightfully so, but you can’t have it both ways, unfortunately.

    Roger Howarth has every right in this world to be gainfully employed on TELEVISION. If Kassie DePaiva wants to continue with OLTL online then Blair can have a new love interest too, but I don’t know if the Blair character can even make it back to Llanview online anymore since the cancellation.

    I honestly do not know all the ins and outs of having those characters go back to OLTL under Prospect Park if they are already on elsewhere. I guess that is a question for Agnes Nixon.

    I can’t believe people are still talking about Carly & Sonny. THIS Carly, the one that Laura Wright has portrayed for years now, how she has amazingly (in my opinion) grown the character DOES NOT belong with Sonny. The “old” Carly, yes, but not this one. Personally, I LOVED Carly & Jax and would give anything for the writers to find a way to bring Ingo back. With that said, THIS Carly is WAY better with Todd than Johnny, that’s for sure. I would be open to a Todd/Carly pairing for a long run (since it looks like CARJAX isn’t an option). The 2 have chemistry and the fact that they are both so broken inside…. if the writers work it well; these 2 could truly be a blessing in disguise for the other. People come into your life to teach you something you don’t already know, and these 2, boy do they both have a lot to learn. I’m open to it and think people need to be more flexible with the writers, stories etc. There are only 4 Daytime Soaps left. We can’t lose any more! Also, it’s a SOAP! There is NO WAY possible to please everyone all the time. Soaps are about Drama, conflict, couples together, torn apart etc. Just enjoy the ride. Personally, as an example, I’m SO disappointed in the direction the Lante/Maxie baby story is going, or at least the way it appears to be going. I was looking forward to a warm hearted/funny journey with these characters as Maxie experienced all that pregnancy has to offer…. but I’m sticking with it. I’m on the GH ride and have no plans to get off even if I don’t love something.

    Grace, can we be friends??? Haha..I feel the EXACT same way!!! You can’t please everyone. I personally NEVER liked Jason and Liz together as a couple. I loved their solid friendship and enjoyed the fact that they always wondered what could have been, but just didn’t see her ever choosing a life of such danger. But in the end, it’s a television show so people need to stop taking things so personally! Great point about there only being 4 shows left and we can’t afford to lose any more viewers! Oh and I agree about the Maxie/lulu storyline…You know Maxie is going to end up being pregnant with Spinelli’s baby and the whole thing is going to snowball out of control and Lulu is going to think that is her baby the whole pregnancy. It’s going to be a loooooong ride and I’m not thrilled about it. I am also a diehard Sonny and Brenda fan and I absolutely HATED the storyline she was given the last time she was in town. Her character was unrecognizable, but I still watched! I’m a GH fan until the end which I hopefully won’t happen in my lifetime.

    Reply

    Grace replied

    Yes Jamie, we can be friends! I feel the EXACT same way about Jason & Liz. Was NEVER a fan of their “romance” and honestly find her to be a whiney character the last few years. They need to find her a good man or a juicy storyline or SOMETHING! Yes, agree on the Maxis/Lants pregnancy. Sort of feel bad for Maxie as she tried but as usual her heart got in the way and she made a bad choice. I didnt watch todays epi yet (Thurs) so no idea what happened. Again, I wld give Todd/Carly a shot, I mean, if not Todd them who on the canvas? I was a HUGE Brenda/Jax fan, but then when they put Jax w Carly I was hooked. Really was looking forward to the last Sonny/Brenda pairing and again, agree w you 100%, so sad the way that story played out.

    How do you feel about SB going to Y&R so soon after leaving GH? I’m a bit disappointed honestly. All the reasons he said he was leaving and all the new things he wanted to try out side of Daytime…. what, they were all tried and complete in 3 months? LOL! Not a fan of Y&R, never have been and wont watch just because he is going to be on.

    CTwildheart replied

    Okay then I want to be friends with both of you! Agree on most everything! Hated what they did to Brenda the last time, not liking where the Lanxie baby story is going, liked the friendship between Todd & Carly – wish they took more time to develop the romance part, liked the friendship between Jason & Liz, truly loving GH right now though.
    As for SB – I think if he had said from the beginning he would do another soap if the scheduling could work, the fans would’ve taken it better.

    Jamie replied

    I agree about Liz…I used to love her but I was so upset by the Liz/Nikolas pairing that she never really recovered in my eyes. I was SO excited when Jonathan Jackson came back and the possibilities but once again, the previous writing regime missed the boat on that one. As for SB, I’m so torn on my feelings for that situation. Part of me is bummed because I loved Jason and Sam and felt kind of robbed that they didn’t end up back together until like the last week of his airdates. And it would have been great to see he and AJ again. Part of me doesn’t even care because aside from he and Sam and his scenes with Spinelli (always made me laugh), his character really bored me. It was always the SAME storyline with him, just with different players. He was just used as this big goon with a gun. He never had a storyline that didn’t have to do with being a hit man, ya know? I think Steve is a great actor and was underutilized in that way, which is ironic since he was on screen like every day for the past 20 years! And then part of me (the rational one) is happy for him because I realize that if he is happier doing Y & R and trying something new while still keeping his family in Nashville then who am I to be mad about it? Also, I kind of respect that he has such loyalty for his friend, Jill Phelps. Even though I think she was part of the problem on GH, you have to hand it to him. So like I said, I’m torn. But I will miss his pretty face! As for Jax and Brenda…I always used to say that they probably would have been my favorite couple ever, had Sonny not existed. I just LOVED S &B….like I was obsessed with them. I still feel like she’s the love of his life and I hope she comes back and Ron can write/right that wrong (haha, pun!). What they did to the memory of Brenda’s character is a travesty!!!!! I swear I will never get over it! What do you think of the Patrick/Brit/Sabrina storyline? I find the whole thing so annoying. Have you watched Thursday’s episode yet? Sometimes soaps frustrate me with how predictable they are….

    Reply

    Jamie replied

    Sure you can join our group!! I can see your point that SB should have stated that he would be open to do other soaps. Esp since we all know that he knew when he left GH that he was going to go to Y & R. As for Todd and Carly taking more time to develop their relationship, I don’t get why so many are saying that. He’s been on GH since, what…..March or April? She was initially one of the first people he got to know so it’s been like 9 months. I think that’s plenty of time to get to know someone and more than enough time to fall for someone. I get that Blair will always be his one true love, but Blair isn’t there. And, Blair kind of hates Todd right now…and she SHOULD! He’s been pretty awful to her and her Tea. He’s not exactly a knight in shining armor and as much as I love Todd, I wish people would stop acting like he’s this great guy. I mean I love Sonny, but the whole gangster with a heart of gold thing is tired and I think aside from being nice to his kids, he’s a pretty terrible person. And just because he’s nice to them, certainly doesn’t make him a GREAT father like they always try to shove down our throats. He got everyone of them blown up, kidnapped, shot..you name it.

    I want to be friends too! I do think some people are taking things to seriously when they should just be enjoying the show instead. Fictional soap couples are not life and death. I for one am going to enjoy the ride and see where it takes me. I agree with Jamie regarding the development of Todd and Carly’s relationship. They have known each other for almost a year now and have spent time getting to know each other. Is there still a lot they need to find out about one another? Of course that’ what will keep things interesting.

    I don’t recognize this goofball, pinky-swearing, Cosmo-reading, “going-steady guy” as the once-legendary Todd Manning at all anymore, and I hate Carly and find her utterly unappealing as a character (though the actress is very good). Combined, the two of them are just gross, and the writing has been seriously inconsistent (one day Todd wants Blair back, the next Mr. Intimacy Issues is happy to jump in bed with Carly). If the writers and actors want to force this Frodd Hamming/Carly thing as some contrived “great romance,” it’s a joke, but they can have at it. Luckily, I have a fast-forward button.

Not 4 weeks ago, She watched this same Man about die and go to heaven when he found out he could stop Blair, his one true babe, from marrying the wrong man. Now she believes he cares for her. Give me a break. Ever since July, The writers have written Todd like a completely different person. Laura says the writers might be forced to give us this pairing. I sincerely pray The writers have more sense. I’ve never seen any true feeling toward Carly from Todd. and that includes the episode they just released. How can a couple happen if neither really knows the other. Todd has no clue who Carly is and Carly is a complete dolt when it comes to Todd. I pray that Todd is taken back by PP , or that the writers expose this GH Todd Manning as a fraud and impostor and remove his mask too. This man is not Todd Manning . Please keep Carly away from Todd , the pairing doesn’t work for me.

    Blair ended things with Todd because he wasn’t wiling to be honest with her. She still loves him as was obvious even when they showed her last stint. All she wants him to do is be honest with her. Now Carlivati is giving Carly, Blair’s words and my goodness, it is all supposed to be so romantic and there’s so much chemistry, give me a break. Todd’s doing the exact same thing with Carly that he does with all his women, lying. He’s lied to her from the very beginning and the lies haven’t stopped. At least Blair knows he lies. Carly hadn’t a clue. Carly is walking around with Blinders on and all she really wants is someone to comfort her because she’s made all these bad moves. That’s not a romantic relationship . That’s the cravings of a woman who wants a man in her life. For Todd it’s the sick need to be wanted because he can’t have Blair at the moment. Carly has been throwing herself at him , she’s available. I Don’t like this Todd but I still see absolutely no chemistry between Carly and Todd, I just see two sad people using each other.

    Todd and Carly together romantically is nauseating to me, and considering how much screen time Carly gets, this may be the end of GH for me for awhile. Jerry Jacks making an appearance and now this, it’s not something I want to watch.

    As friends they were fun, but I can’t picture them together as some super couple conjured up by TPTB.

    I won’t blame Blair for this but I will blame KDP for behaving unprofessionally. I used to love TnB but now all I can think about is how mean and bitter KDP is when I see her scenes. KDP broke a major soap rule – nobody wants to know that there favorite soap star is a jerk! She should have never trolled they way she did. The sad thing is she is talented and could have be focusing her energy on reinventing herself and making Blair a viable character on her own. Instead she has pretty much told the world that she is worthless without Tawd.

    wow! surprised not everyone loves the C&T pairing. I love it! I’ve watched both soaps for decades and these two characters are always getting themselves in trouble, so for them to find each other and fall for each other, even tho they know neither is perfect and in soap terms, that means there is always the chance for twists, turns and secrets and trouble with a capital “T”, which is the manna for soap writing.

    Carly always seemed to forgive Sonny for terrible things, and vice versa, so I believe they’ll find a way for Carly & Todd to be together no matter what the other has done.

    I’m sure Carly will examine her own life and see that most guys she falls in love with have not been model citizens, nor has she.

    as far as Blair & Todd, I did love their pairings, (how many times was it?), but she was paired to far more partners than Todd ever was, and it got so predictable that whenever she was mad at Todd, she’d sleep with a new guy. Blair & Max I Liked, Blair & Asa – not so much! Then there was Blair and John, Blair and Christian – odd, Blair and this latest guy, forget his name…. so I’ve been over ‘Blair & Todd’ for quite a while now.

    loved their wedding with the gold balloons, and his longer hair — gees that was nearly 18 years ago!! eons ago!

    From reading your comments I get that you’re a T&B fan and I used to be as well – 16+ years ago. Roger Howarth is simply awesome and Todd manning is an AMAZING character and what a waste it would be to keep him in the same old T&B rut that sustained OLTL for years until it got stale and was cancelled. Manning has endless possibilities on GH because he is just that awesome and they need to utilize his character rather than keep him on the same, tired path. Growth, not stagnant. DO you see? Kassie/Blair doesn’t work on GH for some reason… it was uncomfortable to watch… and I’m not so sure that the character of Blair would last long on a new OLTL w/ out Todd – he carried a lot of the load. He made her interesting.

    I’ve never been a Carly fan and part of me hopes Todd can make her grovel and chase him while giving her the cold shoulder…etc …. make her crazy, lol (crazier?) I guess we’ll see. Meanwhile, Todd’s character will have center stage because… well, because he dominates the screen somehow – how does he do that? haha! So much fun to watch!

    It is a sad fact that most romance has gone out of daytime and has been replaced by endless rotation of hook ups- and they call it love. I am new to this soap, but what I saw was this guy suddenly ask this girl for a date- it seemed it would be their first one, then they were confessing their love for each and ended up bed. Yes, very hot and steamy scenes, lots of chemistry,but like you I must have missed the falling in love part- the part that use to make give those bedroom scenes meaning- otherwise it is just water down porn- sorry jmo.

    I think it is the faster storytelling. I am getting so much of that on Y&R now that my head is spinning, but that is for another forum. :-)

    I didn’t see that they were in love only until AFTER they had sex and Laura was playing Carly very vulnerable, like she wanted to make sure she was not just a one-night stand.

    Just a few days ago she was thinking about Johnny again and so it kind of came out of nowhere that she was suddenly in love with Todd not to mention that her husband was in Port Charles not too long ago and she was confused about that.

    Well I’m glad that Roger & Laura are so gung-ho about this. This is so depressing I cannot even watch GH. Sonny & Carly are not the love story that Todd & Blair were, are and could & should be again. It sucks for the T&B fans like me, who were ecstatic when Roger came back to play Todd again. It’s the only reason I started watching OLTL again, and T&B were written and acted so beautifully – it was a soap-lover’s dream come true. Watching them is mesmerizing to me. And now to have Todd be so casually flirt and suddenly in love and have it play like he will do anything for this girl who apparently is his first friend ever (really??) is such an insult and just not fair to us. And now that PP will have OLTL on again I suppose Roger will stay on GH and T&B–never again? Now I don’t even want to watch either. Carly is the worst, trashiest lowest character and she is paired with a legend But ya, glad the actors are having fun.

    I’m fast forwarding through the Codd scenes, because the guy onscreen IS NOT my Todd. Maybe he really is Victor,Jr after all. There is no way Todd would leave his son Jack and his other daughter Dani. Todd spent 8 years apart from his family he’s always fought to be with Starr and Jack. Often risking his very life to see them, how the hell am I supposed to take this dopey, Cosmo quiz taking drone serious? I AM a Todd Manning fan and it pains me to see him behaving so OCC. As for Carly she’s a
    succubus. I’d much rather see him with Connie.,at least Roger and Kelly have chemistry. No way in hell Todd would be attracted to Carly. Carly has no feminine bone in her oddly shaped body. Carly already emasculated one man I use to love in Jax and fear Todd is next. I hope Ron Carlivati knows he’s pissing off the OLTL viewers and with it being rebooted he’s likely to lose the fans who followed the OLTL characters to GH.

    Todd belongs with Blair. Their story was barely beginning again after Roger’s 8 year absence when boom OLTL was cancelled. Todd’s characterization is now being altered to force him with Carly. If you don’t know Todd, or never watched OL you probably don’t care, but there are many viewers who do. I don’t mind T&B being apart, but Todd would never ever just give up on her this way. Plot driving character & Tarly have no history. Bring on Blair & tell some meaningful story with a real supercouple who’ve been apart for nearly a decade! Kassie &Roger have explosive chem & so much history. Let them use it! Carly who?

Legions of fans for Todd and Blair want a well written reunion. Starr without her mom? Carly needs a new story fast. Laura is shamelessly touting a story for herself….besides PP is relaunching OLTL on the Internet and don’t they own Todd and Starr and John? Happy about Genie Francis.

    I happen to LOVE Todd & Carly. I watch soaps to be entertained, nothing more nothing less. I find this pairing very entertaining. I suppose we could debate all day long about who should be with whom. About how it’s horrible what they’re doing to past couple’s history( as both an S&C and S&B fan I can tell you it sucks for me to watch Sonny be all the things to Kate that I wanted him to do for Carly & Brenda) it can go on and on. But, at the end of the day, OLTL will still be cancelled (until PP gets up and running), KDP & IR are not on contract at GH & LW & RH are, and the writers have to write a story for those characters and they can’t really worry about characters that aren’t on the canvas FT. They’re not going to please everyone, it’s impossible. They write for reaction, good or bad, because they want to see people’s response, and judging by these comments they got that…which equals success in their eyes.

    Looks like some viewers are calling the Laura/Roger combo out as “Tardly”…I urge the naysayers to give this duo a chance. Head writer Ron Carlivati is an expert at creating material that challenges individual actors to deliver the performances of a lifetime. The emotional potential between Carly and Todd has only scratched the surface so far and truly has the potential to be nuclear. Singularly the two characters are perpetually flawed, plagued by respective histories of stubborn choices and inane relationships. Together, Todd and Carly provide an exotic balance to what each is missing in their character. Carly “completes” Todd and vice versa. I am completely supportive of this relationship and see it as developing into one of the most dynamic unions of serial drama as well as a goldmine for the GH franchise.

Todd Manning is such an excellent character it would be a shame to waste it on more of the same when his story lines could be endless on GH. Blair/Kassie doesn’t “fit in” so to speak, on GH – I don’t know what it is but it doesn’t work.

    I disagree with her. Carly has more chemistry with AJ, and I’d like to see the writers give that a shot, cause I really liked Carly and AJ’s night in Todd’s suite better than anything she’s done with Todd.

    YES! Carly and Todd are hotter than Scandal…finally, an appropriate match for each of them. Let the fireworks and passion and intricate story lines begin!

    AJ and Elizabeth are also a good match. Sweet, sweet Elizabeth with the ability to lie cheat and steal (as well as have children with every love interest) and smarmy AJ…brother to Jason, love of her life! How deliciously twisted the plots can be with them. Won’t miss Steven Weber and Olivia needs to quit plumping her face. She’s too beautiful and doesn’t need all those injections.
