First TIIC gave me Jax and Carly (and then royally screwed them).
Then they gave me Scrubs… LOVE! I’ll always love them no matter how hard TIIC work to try to screw them up. Thompson and McCullough keep Patrick and Robin viable despite the writing.
Along came Mac and Alexis – and TIIC haven’t done much with them – what a waste of a perfectly lovely couple. Mac and Alexis dancing in the headlights of her car has been one of my favorite GH scenes in a long time. (Scrubs 57secs in, Maxis 1.:30secs in)
Now Claire and Lucky… friends, a couple, frenemies, enemies… I just love them. They ‘click’ (and she hasn’t had a kid per affair for poor Lucky to raise). I’m sure the point is to have Liz see them together and realize what she’s thrown away, but I’d love to see them together despite Liz’s inevitable longing to be with Lucky again:
I should give the writers credit for not having Lucky rip Elizabeth apart again, even if she’s been a total wank. I also like the fact that he reflects on his treatment of Elizabeth and having him comment realized that he loves his sons more than hates what Liz has become (ok, my interpretation of what he says). I’m over LL2 in the same way that I’m over LL1 and pretty much all of GH, with the exception of Scrubs, Maxis, and possibly Claire and Lucky. It’s time for Lucky to move on and be happy, truly happy… and besides, how can he turn down a woman who actually wants to have his kids, instead of kids with everyone but him? I’m guessing Claire won’t go as low as giving Lucky a child she lets him think is his and then secretly gives it the real father’s initials.
