General Hospital dedicated a week to classic Sonny Loves His Family episodes. Which other characters deserve five days in the spotlight if the soap can’t return when it wants to thanks to rising COVID cases in California? Find out what fans think.
General Hospital Polling: Think of Laura
A winning 47% of you see Laura (Genie Francis) as the obvious candidate. For one thing, she’s been on the show longer than Sonny (Maurice Benard). She’s a vet, alongside Monica (Leslie Charleson) and Bobbie (Jaclyn Zeman). Plus, if you run a week of Laura episodes, you get Luke (Anthony Geary) and Laura on the run!
Luke and Laura stopping an evil weather machine! Luke and Laura’s reunion! Luke and Laura with a wee Lucky (Jonathan Jackson)! Luke and Laura and the introduction of Nikolas! Who wouldn’t want to travel down that memory lane?
A smaller 23% of the audience voted for Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn). Now that she’s in therapy trying to figure out why she is so terrible with men, she can physically look back at all her crappy choices. Alexis and Jax (Ingo Rademacher)! Alexis and Ned (Wally Kurth)! Alexis and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Alexis and Ric (Rick Hearst)! Alexis and Jerry (Sebastian Roché)! Alexis and Julian (Willia DeVry)! It’s a parade of bad choices!
Maybe the reason only 21% voted for a week of Liz (Rebecca Herbst) is that her stories are so often sad. Her rape, the death of Lucky, the death of Zander, the death of Jake – now with a reformed serial killer to make it all better!
The Other Vet
Scott (Kin Shriner) has been on the show even longer than Laura. Yet only 9% want to see him get a week to himself. He’s been back-burnered so much this past century, it would be sad to see him in his prime when he drove story as a good guy – and a bad one. General Hospital (GH) airs weekdays on ABC.
