In week two of our plot to become your one-stop shop for all things television related — including soaps — we once again turn to our friends at Soaps In Depth magazine to see what has daytime fans in a lather this week. In doing so, we learn a very valuable lesson courtesy of GENERAL HOSPITAL: It turns out that when planning a wedding, the bride isn’t supposed to actually try and find out if the best man is… you know, the best man.
For months now, sweet little Elizabeth Webber has been hooking up with both longtime love and hubby-to-be Lucky Spencer… and his half-brother, Nikolas Cassadine! Several times a week, she declares that Lucky is the guy she wants to marry, and then Nik will enter a room and before she can say “Wait, we shouldn’t!” they already are. And although Liz is constantly saying that she’s got to tell Lucky the truth, our friends at Soaps In Depth magazine say the decision is about to be taken out of her hands! Why? Because Nikolas gets it into his head to leave town just as someone finds out exactly what’s been going on.
The magazine quotes Jonathan Jackson — who plays Lucky on GH, but many of you might recognize from his stint as Kyle on TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES — as saying that his alter ego is about to go through a whole range of emotion thanks to Elizabeth’s betrayal. “Shock, hurt, devastated and then angry,” he shares of the scenes which sound like the kind any actor loves sinking their teeth into.
Of course, the real question is who’ll walk away with Elizabeth when the dust settles. Nikolas could win by default if Lucky sides with the fans who’ve been calling Liz some very nasty names for a while now. On the other hand, it’s not as if Liz and Lucky haven’t strayed before (him with Maxie; her with both Jason and Zander) and eventually found their way back together. Guess that whole “fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me” thing doesn’t apply to soap couples!
