Franco and Elizabeth, Friz, are General Hospital‘s most unexpected couple of the year, we must say! Roger Howarth and Rebecca Herbst do a great job as these characters. But fans have strong opinions about their pairing. What do you think?
An Unusual History, to Say the Least
Franco (Roger Howarth) came back to Port Charles a couple years ago, and he soon became a changed man.
He was diagnosed with a brain tumor that GH doctors deemed had affected his personality, causing him to do all the horrible things he had in the past–multiple murders, messing with people’s minds, making Sam think she’d been raped, etc. He got together with Nina (Michelle Stafford), but that was a bust, as he didn’t share her vision for a life with children of their own to raise together.
Meanwhile, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) was going through her own drama. She was in a bizarre relationship with “Jake Doe” (Billy Miller), because she knew he was really Jason, but he didn’t, and she kept it from him. When the truth came out, she became the town pariah.
Their shared outsider statuses gave these two something in common, and they became friends, then more. Elizabeth believed in Franco’s transformation, loved that he loves her kids (especially Jake [Hudson West]), and feels safe with him. Franco simply worships Elizabeth and would do anything to protect her and prove his love.
Now, some of you GH fans understandably find it downright creepy that these two are a couple, seeing them be intimate and share a home, even, at times. This is understandable. You hate these two together!
Others of you love this story of change and forgiveness. You think these two are a couple of strong, wonderful souls who have found the person who understands them best. You love them together!
Then some of you probably just don’t care either way. You’d rather see other storylines pursued than the Friz relationship.
