This is the second collection of this kind from ABC. In June, the network revealed “The Best of Jason and Sam” which featured a similar revisiting of their love throughout the years. These kinds of offerings are what fans have asked to see for years, and we’re glad this is continuing. Personally, I’m a little disappointed their 2004 breakup, which featured Carly giving Sonny one more night of passion before revealing Kristina is his daughter, or the 2005 death of Michael which featured powerhouse performances from Tamara Braun and Maurice Benard, wasn’t included.
