Longtime General Hospital fans remember Jackie Templeton from the early 1980s. She was brought onto the show, played by a 19-year-old Demi Moore, right after Genie Francis had left the show. Jackie’s sister, also named Laura, had also disappeared.
General Hospital Polling
Jackie and Luke (Anthony Geary) teamed up to find them. Jackie was supposed to be Luke’s new love interest. Shame she had a ton more chemistry with Robert (Tristan Rogers). So Jackie ended up dating Robert. But then Robert married Holly (Emma Samms) to keep her in the country. Turned out Holly and Robert’s chemistry was insanely off the charts. So that was the end of Jackie.
Until now. She’s coming back to Port Charles, played by All My Children vet Kim Delaney. She’s also Chase’s (Josh Swickard) mom. So whom should Jackie hook up with on this go-around? What over 2,000 viewers would like to see:
Where We Left Off
Let’s see Take-Two of Jackie and Robert, 73% of you urge. Their romance never got its full shot 30 years ago. They broke up through no fault of Jackie’s own, Robert just wanted to play the hero. Sure, Jackie was super-bitter at the time, but she’s had time to mellow. Let’s see where this could go.
In Like Finn
There is obviously past history between Jackie and Finn (Michael Easton) – and it goes beyond her spending some time as his stepmother. Who wants to bet that this was a very, very close family? Even though Finn wants nothing to do with her now, and it alienated him from his dad. Maybe one of them – and 15% of General Hospital fans – are itching for a repeat performance?
A smaller 12% of the voters went with Peter (Wes Ramsey). Uhm… OK. He’s… there, we guess. And he’s bad. He’s kind of in the news business, and Jackie is a world-renowned reporter. Sure. Peter. Why not? General Hospital (GH) airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
