7 General Hospital Couples Who Should Never Get Back Together
The land of Port Charles is well known for its super couple pairings. Luke and Laura were probably one of the most well-known soap opera romances of all time. General Hospital (GH) had some incredible love stories over the years, however, there are times that couples have simply not worked well on screen. Therefore, below is a list of seven GH couples who should never get back together.
7. Hayden Barnes and Nikolas Cassadine
These two had quite the whirlwind love affair last year and shared a tremendous amount of chemistry together. But was there ever any real love between Nikolas and Hayden? While they tied the knot pretty quick in Las Vegas, their marriage was plagued with lies, deception and manipulation. Prince Nik is on GH’s deceased list, but is anyone ever really dead and gone when it comes to the world of soaps? With rumors circulating around a Cassadine return, Nikolas is bound to come back to Port Charles one day. If that ever does happen, he needs to stay far away from Hayden.
6. Elizabeth Webber and Jason Morgan
Hayden’s half-sister Liz has had plenty of romances during her time on GH. While Liz is hooked up with Franco right now and enjoying the honeymoon stage of their relationship, she’s always had a thing for Jason Morgan. Not only is he the father to little Jake, but the two had a pretty strong bond at one point in time. Despite this, there are many GH fans who feel that JaSam make a much strong couple than Jason and Elizabeth. Whether that is true or not, the fact is that lies tore Liz and Jason apart and trust would be a major issue if these two decided to hook up again.
5. Alexis Davis and Julian Jerome
Fans of Julexis may disagree, but these two need to refrain from getting back together. They were a strong GH super couple at one point in time, but sadly Julian’s selfishness and ties to the mob will never allow for a solid relationship with Alexis. While she does have a soft spot for mobsters (that’s clear based on her past history), as well as men who like to sit on the other side of the law, there’s no doubt this woman deserves better. How can she forget that Julian not only lied to her, but also went back on his promise to the leave the mob, and even tried to kill her at one point? It would be hard to leave that behind and jump into a relationship with him. Not to mention the fact that his crazy sister Olivia is back in town looking for revenge on him.
4. Kiki Jerome and Michael Corinthos
When Jerome was played by Kristen Alderson back between 2013 and 2015, Kiki and Michael had tremendous chemistry together. Could it have been the fact that she and Chad Duell were dating in real life? Regardless, today Kiki seems like a much better fit with Dillon Quartermaine … or Morgan Corinthos for that matter (if he was or is still alive). The relationship that Michael and Kiki once shared is a thing of the past and perhaps that is where it should stay. These two would make a terrible couple now if they got back together.
3. Lulu Falconeri and Dillon Quartermaine
These young lovebirds had chemistry in their teenage years and it seemed to relay into adulthood when Dillon remerged on the GH scene in 2015. Despite the fact that Dillon tried hard to sway Lulu into giving him and a relationship another try, as most GH fans know, Lulu’s heart fully belongs to Dante. Besides that, these two seem to make much better friends than lovers at the end of the day.
2. Carly Corinthos and Jasper “Jax” Jacks
This may be a bit of a controversial one, but still remains on the list. Carly and Jax were GH’s top super couple at one point. They were married for an incredible six years, which is huge by soap opera standards. They had a great relationship. Jax treated her and her boys well, and the relationship produced a child, Josslyn Jax. They did make a great couple … so why did they hit this list? Well, for a couple of reasons. Despite the fact that Carly loves Jax, it is clear that her heart will always belong to current hubby, Sonny. While Jax did make a great husband, another crystal-clear fact is that he knows something about Nelle, and is hiding it, which places a huge shadow of doubt on just how great of a husband he really was.
1. Carly Corinthos and Franco Baldwin
Back in 2014, the concept of Franco and Carly hooking up seemed like such a great idea. They were both good looking, interesting characters, and considering their histories together, the two falling in love seemed liked such an interesting story and romance. But when these two did eventually make it to couple status, they lacked chemistry and that certain something together. Franco is so much better suited for Elizabeth and even though they break up so much, Carly will always end up in Sonny’s arms at the end of the day.
