Soap opera kisses come in many varieties but the ones that take place on New Year’s Eve can sometimes point to new plots for the following year!
This year, General Hospital (GH) fans will see Jason (Steve Burton) and Sam (Kelly Monaco) kissing at midnight, and it will even include a flashback of a previous NYE when the duo did the same thing. So does that mean they’re the couple to watch in 2018? Quite possibly! But they aren’t the only ones.
Days of Our Lives (DOOL) is also pointing to some surprising couplings sharing a smooch on NYE. While sometimes it can mark the start of something new, sometimes a NYE kiss can be just a kiss.
Like a couple of years ago when Mariah (Camryn Grimes) and Kevin (Greg Rikaart) did shots and tried to see if there was something there. Oops! There wasn’t! Fans of The Bold and the Beautiful are hoping NYE isn’t when Steffy (Jaqueline MacInnes Wood) gets the kiss-off from Liam (Scott Clifton) for good!
Soap Hub asked if you enjoy interesting New Year’s Eve kisses and you certainly made your critique of those stolen moments quite clear.

You know that this could mean something and anything that even remotely looks like a spoiler is something you can get behind! And if the pairing surprises you — even better!
Two years ago on DAYS, Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Eric (Greg Vaughan) shared a kiss and then he ended up driving drunk and killing his best friend. This year the couple get a redux — here’s hoping tragedy doesn’t strike again.
For 32%, you’re a bit picky. You don’t care if it’s just anyone kissing — these special kisses shouldn’t be squandered. You want to see it mean something and not be a throwaway moment.
