So late last night, I was making up some silly polls, writing an intro because really, it should look like I put a modicum of effort into the post, right? So I was all, last Wednesday on GH was great and five days of thinking good thoughts and yadda yadda, but probably Monday someone will get killed or called a whore! Ha ha, a joke about the violence and misogyny on General Hospital. So fresh, so original.
But y'all, I was right! The whore card got played! By Original Recipe Lucky Spencer, no less! Well, kind of.
Dream Sequence Lucky: Hey, what’s going on in here?
Dream Sequence Liz: Nikolas was just paying me for sleeping with him, just like Jason did.
Dream Sequence Lucky: Well, kind of leaves me out, doesn’t it?
Dream Sequence Liz: No, no! That’s not what I want from you, Lucky. I love you.
Dream Sequence Lucky: Elizabeth,* you obviously don’t care about love. It’s not what you want. You want money, don’t you? I mean, a whore is a whore, right? Since you only seem to have sex with guys who pay for it, here ::throws a bunch of paper money at her:: take it. I’d like to stay in the mix.
I don't care that it's Jonathan Jackson and he's awesome (side note: seriously, who will get him to SHAVE?), or that it was a dream sequence. There are about a dozen things wrong with Nikolas and Elizabeth's relationship, and none of them has to do with money. She wasn't after Jason's money, either. I think the character is grody right now, but I refuse to endorse this writing team's inability to insult women characters with anything other than "golddigging slutty whore" (paraphrased). It's gross.
* Random aside: For the last several months, every time I type "Liz" or "Elizabeth," I think of this, and I laugh. "I do not go by Liz. Where did you get your information? I will send my hitman babydaddy after you immediately."
I'm in a poll-y kind of mood again:
