can sonny and jax keep the peace?

The In Depth Story: With Josslyn still grieving the death of Oscar, both her father and stepfather have stepped up to support her. “Daddy’s home, and he’s a safe place for Josslyn,” maintains the broken-hearted teen’s portrayer, Eden McCoy. “She needs Jax, but Sonny is Uncle Sonny. He’s not blood, but he’s the closest thing to it. It’s a completely different dynamic between Sonny and Joss.

Ever since her character’s son passed away, Kim’s been devastated by waves of heartbreak. “There’s this coming in and coming out of being lost in the grief and what it’s doing mentally to her,” Braun notes. “And then coming back to reality when she hears people making logical, rational arguments or just share the truth of what is going…

PSST! The In Depth Story: Ever since Dev arrived from Turkey, fan speculation has exploded over which characters the teenager might be connected to. While some viewers suggest portrayer Ashton Arbab’s looks hint at a connection to Nikolas, many others theorize that he’s related to Sonny… and Brenda! In fact, when Maurice Benard (Sonny) Instagrammed a photo of himself with Arbab — tagging it “the new kid on the block” and asking, “Who is Dev?” — co-star Tamara Braun (Kim) couldn’t help but tease the actor who plays the dapper don. “It’ll turn out he’s your long-lost son, right?” she jokingly replied. “Sonny and his seed!” Meanwhile, over on Twitter, when a viewer posted a photo of Arbab between Marcil and Benard to highlight the resemblance, Sonny’s portrayer replied with a thinking-face emoji…
