General Hospital… for the love of LIZ!

Liz and Prince Nikolas are low, sleazy, and just plain trashy… which means that I can’t take my eyes off of them!  They’re a motherfrickin’ trainwreck, people!   I dig their ‘forbidden chemistry’, I do … I just hate them as a couple.  It’s making me like them even less as individuals.  Liz has worn out her status as the woman meant to comfort GH’s broken-hearted males (Jason – TWICE, there was Zander Smith and  Ric Lansing, Patrick – during Robin’s PPD, and now Nik, yet AGAIN).  Still,  I have high hopes for this storyline.  Weird, I know!

I’d love for Liz to realize that she isn’t the goddess of goodness and light she’s seemingly  talked herself into believing she’s become.  Lucky is the evil lowdown drug addicted cheat who can’t be trusted.  She’s the picture of reclaimed purity and perfection still grieving his infidelity… Woe is her!  I thought Lanie’s question during the marriage counseling session, asking Liz if she thought she was incapable of cheating, was brilliant.  Well done writers.. you just blew it on the follow through.  Liz flashed, for just a moment, on her close contact with Prick Nikolas.

Too bad.  If I was writing the character, she’d have flashed back to her interlude with Zander.  Then she’d have thought about her dalliances with Jason, pre-Lucky’s addiction and post.  She would have thought about why her ‘natural’ reaction to finding out that Lucky was cheating was to cheat, herself.  THEN she would have thought about Nik, her ‘husband’s brother… She would have been tormented by the thought of hurting Lucky, the man who gave her the best of himself and who asked her for nothing in return.  Good for him  for asking for nothing, because nothing is pretty much all she has to give to him.  In my hands?   Liz would have experienced a raging inner battle – trying to figure out why so much of her life has been spent making Lucky feel small, cheating on him, drawing him in to love her just to reject him for the next new ‘someone better’.

How prophetic that Liz and Lucky were considered LL2 by fans (the second Luke and Laura).  The show’s writers are as determined to destroy Liz and Lucky as they have been to destroy Luke and Laura.  In this case?  Lucky is Laura… loving, sensitive, sometimes making mistakes but generous and forgiving to a fault.  He keeps loving Elizabeth and hoping that the next time will be different, that she’ll set aside her need for ‘adventure’ and adoration and just love him in return.   Liz is Luke… she says all the right things, but in the end she’s self-serving and cares more about what she feels in the moment than the implications of her actions.  Lucky’s pain can be ‘mended’ and one day she’ll make it up to him… until it’s time for her to leave him again.

Teenaged/Adult  Lucky fell for the feeling he knew best – an emotion that should never be called love, but it was the best his father – and now Liz, had to give.  Just as he clings to Luke and keeps hoping there’s something he can do to make his father love him;  he’s done the same with Elizabeth.  If the writers are in tune with these characters, they’ll have Lucky come to this conclusion and cut Prick Nikolas and Elizabeth Webber out of his life for good.  It’s time.  For all of Liz’s whining and obsessive need to be a victim, she clearly can never be the woman to love Lucky the way he needs to be loved.  Just like his father, she will disrupt his live whenever she needs something from him, but she’ll never give him genuine love and respect in return.   She knows what to say, she just isn’t capable of proving her love with the appropriate action.

Let’s just hope she doesn’t give him yet another child she’ll pass off as his own.  To make him think he was the father of Jason’s kid was bad enough… to make him think he’s the father of his brother’s child?  Brutal!

Writers, I have a cup of popcorn with Lucky’s name on it just waiting to be popped!  It’s ready for the day that Lucky gets to rip into Elizabeth and Nik, REALLY rip into them – in a way that makes it clear to us that there will never be real happiness for the two of them, because they don’t deserve it.  WTG, Prick Nik… guilt your brother into staying away from Rebecca (WHEW, I guess I should thank him for THAT MUCH) and then sleep with the only woman he’s ever really loved.

  1. I agree with trainwreck but for different reasons.

    Putting aside my LL2 fan card here…and I can do it, my main issues with this storyline is the absolute lack of build up. Two drunken nights in Jake’s, spending every bleeding moment together discussing Rebecca and poof in three seconds going to “wow I can’t stop thinking about you at all” not to mention ret-conning the actual reaction they had post Jake’s the first time (ie Nik almost sleeping with Rebecca and Liz freaking out Lucky might have slept with Rebecca) to justify this. Plus the character destruction. Granted Nik didn’t have far to fall but Liz had barely begun to recover from the last time they did this storyline. (And I do recognize this as Jason/liz…minus the constant talk of DANGER)

    Part of me does feel this storyline is to allow Lucky to have the reaction he couldn’t have to Jason/Liz becuase well it’s Jason…and we all know Jason is never ever wrong and is never ever a mistake. I also feel its an attempt to get people to back off the Ethan/Rebecca must die train…..right now Ethan is makign sense and Rebecca is clearly getting the sympathetic writing.

    However they have built in too many outs for Lucky to forgive them both. How many times have they said Nik has “gone Cassadine”? (It’s becoming like “essential person” to me) Lucky wil not walk away from his sons so cutting Elizabeth completely out of his life isn’t going to happen. It seems likely he’ll get more of a reaction than he did with Jason/Liz…but I’m completely expecting this time next year Lucky will be close to Nik again.

  2. STOP the Liz/Nicolas thing…just ain’t right!!! toooooo trashy…liz always remember your children…never ever let a MAN change your mind…
