Laura is currently one of the longest-running characters on General Hospital. That we see more than once in a blue moon. Multi-decade fans remember the teenage girl who ran away from home… to join a cult. The young wife who ran away from home… to bring down the mob. And an evil weather machine. The kidnapped bride and the adventurous mother.
General Hospital Polling
Now she’s the mayor of Port Charles – a position both her ex-husband and her ex-father-in-law once held; talk about a political dynasty… or more stolen elections, thanks to her bratty grandson. So what should be next for Laura (Genie Francis)? The word from over 4,000 new and old viewers:
Back To Your Roots
Laura helped smash the Frank Smith mob and kept Mikkos Cassadine from freezing the world and ending global warming (thanks, Laura). Which is why 77% of you are confident she can be the one to bring down Cyrus (Jeff Kober), once and for all. He has it coming. And Port Charles deserves to have their kiss-ass heroine back.
Laura and Robert (Tristan Rogers) go back a long, long time. He was on the island with her and Luke (Anthony Geary) when they defeated the Cassadines. So it makes perfect sense to 13% of the audience that Laura should be the one to help Robert track down the definitely not dead Holly (Emma Samms). And that Laura and Robert should fall in love along the way. After all, he wouldn’t be the first man Laura and Holly have in common.
Remember When II
An optimistic 6% remember when Laura and Monica (Leslie Charleson) used to be friends. They kind of avoid remembering the part where Monica was merely playing up to the confused teenager while she was trying to get Laura’s stepfather, Rick (Chris Robinson), away from her mother, Lesley (Denise Alexander). They should be friends again. Uh… still.
A last place 4% want Laura to be drawn to Valentin (James Patrick Stuart). Ewww. General Hospital (GH) airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
