A Pile of New Favorites
I have a lot of new favorite things on General Hospital these days. A lot. But can you indulge me to just review a handful of them?
- AJ is my favorite. Favorite, favorite, favorite.
Was that not hilarious when he was all hunched-over, covered in blood, and back from the dead and he was all super-casually, "Oh hey, Elizabeth, good to see you!"
I'm also enjoying his little manipulations, exposing Sonny to Michael. It'd be a lot more devious and evil if Sonny weren't taking the bait at every turn and proving the kind of man he is -- AJ is only setting Sonny up to get caught doing things that Sonny does. So what can I say? As it stands, I find it hysterically entertaining.
- Elizabeth Webber's skilled wielding of a needle. (Lizzie's bitchface is well-documented, but today she kicked it up a notch.)
And as expected (not just because both Sean Kanan and Rebecca Herbst happen to be walking chemistry machines, but also because of the obvious and most excellent drama), Liz and AJ? Oh yeah. Sparks. Sure, sure, their little forgiveness conversation and bonding over Jason was a little too neat, but if it can lead to something hot? I'll take it! It doesn't even have to be a love for the ages, but come on. Neither AJ nor Liz has gotten laid for a long-ass time and that's got to be building up, right? (I'm foolishly trusting the new regime to make sure the next person who beds our girl remembers to wear a damn jimmie this time.)
I'm doing so much potential 'shipping all over the place now that all these old faces are back on canvas.
- More favorites. The fact that a storyline about Anna, Duke, and Faison continues to be featured as a front-burner story!
There was a point at which I was willing to accept it in any form. I was so foolish back then! Little did I know how good it was going to get.
- Robert Scorpio and John McBain, crime-fighting duo for the ages!
I love it!
I don't want to be a buzz kill to myself and go too far into the things that are decidedly not my favorites right now, but words like Connie and Sonny come to mind and let's just leave it at that and think about Scorpio and McBain some more!
