Soap Opera’s 7 Best Bromances
Soap opera fans love their favorite shows mostly due to the romance and love stories that unravel, but what happens when two fellas find a connection together in a nonsexual way? A bonefide bromance, that’s what happens! While the term ‘bromance’ seems to have reached a fever pitch popularity in today’s pop culture, men having been bonding with other men for years on soaps. Below is a list of seven of the best soap opera bromances:
7. GH’s Sonny Corinthos and Stone Cates
Could one really call this a bromance? They weren’t related by blood, but General Hospital’s (GH) Sonny did take a young Stone under his wing and treated him much like a little brother or even a son. Watching Sonny support Stone (and Robin) during Cates’ final days battling AIDS was an endearing thing. Sure, the mobster was ruthless, but when it came to those he cared about he had a heart of gold. He even ended up paying for Stone’s hospital bills. With illegal money, of course, but still.
6. GH’s Luke Spencer and Robert Scorpio
These two were bromancing it up in the 1980s on GH before bromancing it up was even a thing. In fact, Luke and Robert were so close, they were able to bring down Mikkos Cassadine’s plan to take over the world via a freezing contraption. Remember this was the ‘80s, so soap opera hair, shoulder pads, and storylines were big and outrageous back then.
