The bombshell storyline Lexi Ainsworth and Ashley Jones are in the middle of leads them out of Port Charles…for now.
The Scoop So Far
The buzz on these two and their on-screen alter egos is that they’ll be gone from Port Charles at present and moving forward, according to our friend, Michael Fairman via Soap Opera Digest‘s latest print issue. However, as with everything in good ole’ soap land, things could change on a dime so don’t count these characters–and the talented actresses who portray them–out just yet.
The same-sex, romantic pairing of Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) and her former professor, Parker (Ashley Jones) certainly has generated much controversy among GH fans, from the lesbian and student/professor angles to the age difference between the two women. Now that their storyline has taken a shocking turn, as the recently reunited duo is heading to (what looks like permanently) Parker’s home state of Oregon – much to the chagrin of Kristina’s mom, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn)–the buzz, according to our good friend Michael Fairman via Soap Opera Digest, is that the roles will be gone from Port Charles at present and moving forward.
Another Iron on the Fire, and an Intriguing Tweet!
Ainsworth, of course, garnered her first Daytime Emmy this year Outstanding Younger Actress for her powerful work in this particular storyline. She also is slated to appear on the TNT series Major Crimes, so she is keeping busy outside of GH. Jones, meanwhile, cryptically tweeted in response to a fan’s question about a possible GH return.
Time will tell (hopefully sooner than later)…hang tight;) https://t.co/C4dCnsqBeN

That, dear Soap Cities readers, sounds like they’ll be back. But maybe that’s wishful thinking on our parts, what do you think?
As mentioned, fans were divided over the storyline. Will Kristina and Parker’s departure mean that we’ve seen the last of Pristinad? Or, might the duo return to Port Charles a couple, or face a different set of circumstances; say, a breakup and the ensuing fallout?
