5 General Hospital Couples With The Worst Chemistry
General Hospital (GH) is no stranger when it comes to couples with incredible chemistry. GH’s most infamous pair, Luke and Laura, began their love affair in the late ’70s and became daytime television’s super couple. When it comes to soap opera couples, these two are considered the benchmark that other couples are measured against. The Port Charles duo wed in an hour-long extravaganza, which aired in November 1981 and was watched by 30 million fans. It remains the highest-rated episode in daytime history. GH has gotten it right in terms of chemistry over the years; however, they have also failed. Below is a list couples from GH who have the worst chemistry ever!
5. Morgan and Ava
Could it be the huge age gap between these two lovebirds or the fact that Ava Jerome seemed more suited for Morgan Corinthos’ dad (Sonny) while Morgan seemed to fair better with Ava’s daughter (Kiki Jerome)? Regardless, the two just never seemed to have any real chemistry between them, despite their rollercoaster storyline. Perhaps the real root behind this was the simple fact that, while Morgan (played by actor Bryan Craig) was clearly in love with Ava (declaring on a recent GH episode that Ava was the only women he has ever loved), self-involved Ava (played by veteran daytime actress Maura West) has only ever really been in love with herself. It could also be the tremendous amount of lies that circled the relationship from the get-go, thanks to the conniving Ava. Alas, it is safe to say that Morgan and Ava are much better suited apart than together.
4. Kiki and Michael
Speaking of Kiki, this spitfire flew into Port Charles in 2012 and rocked daytime screens everywhere with her hot and steamy love scenes with then-boyfriend, Morgan. Instantly finding herself embroiled in a love triangle between two brothers (Morgan, and his half-brother Michael Quartermaine), the recipe for relationship chemistry success between her and Michael seemed inevitable when he ultimately won her heart and tore her away from his brother. Alas, the chemistry was not there, and the couple fizzled just as quickly as they sparked. There’s nothing that daytime soap fans love more than a woman coming between two brothers; however, the Kiki and Michael love story became bland…and fast. Perhaps the two were just way too different to provide viewers with anything substantial.
