  1. As long as she has any connection to Sonny, her scenes will all be FF’d! Especially the love scenes!!
    She may have been interesting if they hadn’t immediately put her in Sonny’s orbit.
    Hopefully she won’t be around long!

  2. I think Martina was a spicy addition. Not to mention she is gorgeous! Martina was obviously created to have enough fire and ice to tangle with Sonny. I would love to see more of her, if only to give Carly something to worry and get jealous about.
