General Hospital knows how to bring us that afternoon delight we fans want. Some of its current amorous tales are fab, while others are less so. Do you agree with our grades?
Kevin and Laura: A+
As Donna Summer once cooed, so we must say about this couple: “Ooooooooh/Love to love you, baby.”
And don’t you, dear Soap Cities readers? These two are mature, fun, unexpected, and entertaining even when things are going swimmingly for them, as they are now. Two awesome GH characters found each other–yay!
Honestly, we can’t find anything negative to say about them–except maybe that we want to see lots more of them!
Alexis and Julian: A
Granted, the amount of drama these two experience makes us need to sit down and take a few deep breaths every time they’re on our screen. But that’s one of the reasons they’re so amazing! They are always interesting, never want to make us fast forward, and despite some wacky stuff happening, we believe the Julexis story deep down in our hearts. Hopefully, these two will find each other again, so to speak.
Sam and Jason: B+
One thing that really annoyed us is how Jasam couldn’t keep their hands off each other. Perhaps we’re bitter or cynical, but it was still true. In any case, when they first got back together, their constant need to be pawing at each other got on our nerves.
Thankfully that phase is over. These two have undeniably great chemistry–even the actors seem to love working together so much. But they lack that passion that almost makes us want to yell out at our TV screens, “Yes, yes, YES!”
Kiki and Dillon: B+
The incessant sex and tongues and hands and ripping each other’s clothes off mantle has been handed over by Jasam and valiantly taken up by Kiki (Hayley Erin) and Dillon (Robert Palmer Watkins). As hot as these two people are, we’ve seen enough of their rolling around on different surfaces all over Port Charles.
We do love how they were on and off, then love triumphed, and now they are together, hopefully long enough for us to get to see them explore who they are as a couple–and have some classic GH adventures together. Exciting!
Elizabeth and Franco: B
We love both Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and Franco (Roger Howarth) as individual characters. And a recent poll we did made us see how great they really are together. They break the soap mold in a new, exciting way. And we look forward to seeing where they take their partnership.
Jordan and Curtis: C
These two actors, Donnell Turner (Curtis) and Vinessa Antoine (Jordan), are so darn pretty! We kind of can’t take our eyes off the screen when they are on it.
But their chemistry is a little off. Now, Jordan and Andre and Curtis and Valerie (Brytni Sarpy) or Hayden (Rebecca Budig), those would have been couples that made us call the fire department when our TVs exploded because of the sexy energy between them. Sadly, it isn’t so with these two. They have the air of a brother and sister to us!
Hayden and Finn: C
We like these two together, which is why we are giving them a C. How does that make sense? Well, we were supremely annoyed when Hayden said she couldn’t promise Finn (Michael Easton) she’d be there for him when he got out of rehab. Way to jeopardize his sobriety, Hayden! And after he saved your life when you were sick, tsk tsk.
We can’t help but root for these two, because we like Michael Easton a lot and love Rebecca Budig so. So get it together, you two!
Nina and Valentin: B-
While these two are great as two outcast peas in a pod, there are some things we can’t get behind concerning them.
The whole marriage of convenience thing is a little undeniable and a turn-off–as in, Nina (Michelle Stafford) kind of just married Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) to allow him to look good in family court and keep Charlotte (Scarlett Fernandez). Then again, they’ve done a good job of convincing us they truly love each other since.
However, Nina’s constant jealousy and suspicion to the point of lunacy is maddening, unenjoyable, and so not sexy!
Lulu and Dante: A
There’s a saying in fiction writing popular in the daytime industry that “happiness is boring.” And it does seem to prove true. As much as it saddens us when a couple sees rough times, when a pair isn’t going through them, they get dull and don’t move story forward.
However, Lulu (Emme Rylan) and Dante’s (Dominic Zamprogna) happiness lately isn’t boring and is actually refreshing. Keep it up, you two, and get shared custody of Charlotte!
Ned and Olivia: A
We love these two together. One of the reasons is that we love them individually, and their partnership has given the writers a reason to put them back on our screens. Hooray!
Felicia and Mac, Molly and TJ: ???
We put these four together, because we have one very important question for both of them: where the heck are you?!? The catacombs under Wyndermere? Before we can give them a grade, we need to see more of them.
Brad and Lucas: B-
We, of course, applaud the inclusion of a gay couple on the GH story canvas. However, it never made sense to us that Lucas (Ryan Carnes) would choose Brad (Parry Shen) over Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel). Brad is really proving himself to be the lowest of the low with his latest stunt of trying to sabotage Finn. Lucas would never be with him! Also, where is Lucas?
