The Most Relatable Moment In The World
Let's face it, we've all been there. We're just liars if we say we haven't.
I mean who hasn't found out that a convicted gang rapist was spying on us through a camera hidden in our toddler daughter's toy and then just finally found ourselves completely and utterly unable to resist his advances?
No one, that's who. It's happened to all of us. Three times this week for me so far.
But alas, because Carly is so emotionally mature, she cut it off before it went too far. She regrets nothing, but is wise enough to understand that she and Todd are both just terrified of love, despite the fact that the two of them combined have been madly in forever-love with a combined total of at least five people in the last two years.
Again, this is emotional wisdom and has nothing to do with a bunch of intellectual property issues still being sorted out behind the scenes, nor does it have to do with Roger Howarth being on contract for the first six weeks of the re-launch of that show that created this here Todd Manning character. (Where perhaps big sis Viki will make him start being less douchey or... something?)
We're all worried, right? Oh, stop. There's no way these two won't come back together! How could they not, when they are the greatest love to ever love and the most unique relationship in history and the most passion either has ever known?
Similar emotional wisdom was going on elsewhere as well. Sam and John decided that their being together would just make them feel guilty, and lamented over how much better it would be in a world where they could unite romantically and it wouldn't hurt anyone. This, too, was entirely about making mature decisions and protecting people from getting hurt and nothing to do with actor contracts or production companies not quite having worked things out yet. I mean for heaven's sake, if Sam and John got together now, the list of the injured goes like this: (1) probably not her "dead" husband, (2) probably not his estranged girlfriend considering she told him to take a hike and currently has a restraining order out against him. So who exactly are they trying to protect? Caleb?
Regardless, they, too, managed to resist in some clever effort to blue-ball the entire audience of General Hospital for either a few months and forever and ever.
(It's no secret that I have my personal preferences which one of these things gets a payoff and which one goes away forever please.)
But no, it appears that it's not going to happen because, you know, it's not the "right" thing to do. I am confused because that's what I thought made it hotter. (I may be a little blinded by the fact that I've been watching both of these characters for a lot of years now and have never personally seen either one of them have even a modicum of this amount of chemistry with anyone else despite my fondness for various pairings because just holy crap.)
Oh well. It'll be fine. If they work out the licensing issues, they can just put Sam in grave danger in a few months and John McBain can come rescue her and then sex her up, because of course that's kind of his thing. (And "Sam in grave danger" is even more standard.)
Meanwhile, dayplayer nurses threw some attitude at A.J. on Elizabeth's behalf.
Oh yeah, and A.J. told the truth to Elizabeth and she agreed to give him another chance on the condition that he performs with her at the Nurses Ball and I'm totally excited and dorking out and yay and he's just so totally enamored with her and it's awesome.
Dude is smitten. He's done for! (And I love it.)
