Changing partners and emotional upheaval is popular on soaps and General Hospital is a key player in delivering that punch
Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and Julian (William deVry) are broken up following the holding a knife to your throat is just another way of showing how much I love you, incident.
Meanwhile, Finn (Michael Easton) and Anna (Finola Hughes) are acting like teen-agers in love for the first time, even though Anna is a grandmother twice over, and Finn is… pouty.
But is there still a spark between Finn and Alexis? How almost 6,000 of you see it.
It looked like Alexis and Finn were really headed somewhere for a minute there, 53% of you note. And you’d like to see where it goes.
Finn and Alexis are fun together – and she’s already found her long-lost child – old spoiler: it was Sam (Kelly Monaco) – so Alexis doesn’t need to keep apologizing to them, the way Anna does with Peter (Wes Ramsey).
Plus, remember how Finn still has a lost love out there, Hayden (Rebecca Budig), who left town secretly still pregnant with his child. That’s the kind of heartache Alexis enjoys more than Anna.
Give those two a chance!
Dumb and Dumber
Finn and Alexis is snooze-inducing, 47% of the audience serves up a cease and desist court order. He’s dour and depressed, and she’s depressed and dour.
That does not scream fun. Even when Finn is happy with Anna, his scenes with Alexis just sort of lay there. They exchange information, then move on with their lives.
This is not a couple that gets your blood pumping, even as friends. Let Finn stick with Anna – and go looking for Hayden if he feels like it. And leave Alexis to fall head over heels into the next pair of abs and/or dimples that cross her path.
