Breaking up and making up is what soap opera couples do, and the lovebirds on General Hospital are no exception.
Of course, sometimes the split is for good, but even when an actor leaves the show and/or the character dies on-screen, fans still reserve the right to hold out hope.
So which Port Charles twosome caused the most tears when they went their separate ways this year – and was this, as Cher would say, really their last good-bye? Almost 4.000 GH fans had this to say:
EXCLUSIVE CONTENT: The Walking Dead news and reviews. Get your zombie fix!
A full 64% of you were crushed by Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly’s (Laura Wright) latest split, despite the fact that this is GH’s signature, can’t-live-with-them-can’t-live-without-them (although, in Sonny’s case, can’t-kill-them isn’t off the table) couple.
Come on, folks, this is a duo that survived their son’s multi-year coma, Sonny shooting Carly in the head while she was giving birth, multiple affairs, infinite lies, and the fact that no matter how much they try to hide it, deep down, they are both horrible, selfish, sadistic people.
If they can work through those obstacles to reunite over and over again, they can work through anything.
Morgan (Bryan Craig) and Kiki (Hayley Erin) don’t have the star-crossed history that Morgan’s parents, Sonny and Carly, do (though they did share an STD, and that’s pretty bonding), but 23% of fans were still heartbroken by their breakup.
With Morgan being presumed dead, their odds of happily-ever-after would seem bleaker than most (plus the fact that Kiki was already planning to dump him even before that). But considering death is a mere hiccup on soaps, a 2017 reunion still isn’t out of the question!
Attorney Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) stands for truth, justice, the American way, and women’s rights. Just ask her, she’ll be happy to tell you.
(Or don’t ask her, she’ll tell you anyway). Except when it comes to men. If they’re hot enough, Alexis has no problem overlooking their tendency to kill, steal, manipulate the legal system, and exploit women (as well as underage girls).
Except when she doesn’t. Alexis married mobster Julian (William deVry) because staring at his six-pack abs was enough to convince her he’d changed. Turned out the abs lied, and he was still a Very, Very Bad Man. So they broke up, upsetting 12% of you. Let’s hope you don’t end up turning to the bottle to deal with it, like Alexis has.
