This is a pretty simple one. Mac and Felicia don’t do anything but dole out advice and occasionally get themselves caught in compromising positions in the park on General Hospital (GH).
So, Soap Hub asked you what you REALLY want for this longtime couple and fan fave characters and the answer is abundantly clear–a STORYLINE.
Give Them Something To Do–ANYTHING!
Out of more than 5,000 votes, 79% of you want to see Mac and Felicia solve a crime, have something that happens to them that hits home emotionally–anything really. Sure, they have always been a quirky couple, but that doesn’t mean they can’t play drama.
Yes, they are both older characters now and even grandparents, but that doesn’t mean they’re still not vital. What if one of them has a health scare with their family rallying around them? Make it gritty and realistic a la Claire Labine writing from the 1990s.
Kristina Wagner was able to shine then when Maxie had a heart transplant with the heart coming from her cousin, BJ, who had just been killed in a bus crash. We know she can do it again and long for the days when Mac and Felicia were front and center.
They’re Great The Way They Are
Only about 21% of you are fine seeing them in small doses. They are fun when they’re on, but you can’t see what story would work for you.
While you look forward to seeing them as doting grandparents, it’s been so long since they’ve done anything but babysit, assist Anna with capers, and be private eye gossips that you can’t imagine them doing anything else.
You’re just happy to know they’re around and together and for now, that’s enough for you.
