    I can’t wait for tomorrow’s episode.I’m thinking because Sonny and Carly reflect on their relationship through the years for when it’s time to remember how they first got together Sarah Brown takes Laura Wright’s place as Carly and the same goes for Tamara Braun.That way the flashbacks could mean more with Maurice Benard(Sonny) reminiscing with the actress he had the original scenes with.

      That’s a great idea.

    All three of these ladies won a Daytime Emmy playing Carly. I wonder if that is a unique daytime record?
