Is it just me or do other GH fans think this way, too? I just don't know how to feel about Claudia. First, I hear Sarah Brown is coming back. Yay! But, she's playing a new character. Well, okay. That's weird, but I don't want Laura Wright to leave. I like her Carly. So, okay, I'll go along with it. Enter Claudia. She immediately sleeps with Sonny. Okay, that's entering with a bang. (Pardon the pun.) Then, she sashays around down in outfits cut down to her navel, rubbing her stuff all over the menfolk of Port Charles. Then, she organizes a hit on Sonny that ends up gunning down an innocent boy. I'm not really liking her right now, despite Sarah Brown's ferocity.
Then, it's hinted that she may have been sexually abused as a young girl. Okay, that explains the flirting with her brother and being a slut. Now, she's stabbed by Jerry, dumped in the harbor and left for dead. I guess that's the universe's way of her paying for what happened to Michael. Next up, it's Nikolas to the rescue and the two are going to bond? Well, I guess I'll go along for the ride, considering that GH does has a spectacular history of making unlikely couples work. (Hello, Luke and Laura!)
It's obvious that the disparity in Claudia's actions is courtesy of the writers' strike, but now that that mess is over with, please, writers, pick one direction and stick to it, or viewers may not end up caring about her at all.
