Two of A Kind: GH

As I watched Monday's General Hospital it occurred to me that there may be a potential pairing that perhaps the writers have not considered yet, Sonny and Liz. Think about it, they both seem to be completely out of touch with reality, which may be enough to convince them that they could actually have a functional relationship. In fact they may very well be the most delusional people in all of Port Charles. Liz thinking that her connection with Lucky might be enough for him to forgive her, and Sonny thinking his connection with Dante might be enough to earn his forgiveness.





Still not convinced that these two are a perfect match? I have formulated a list of their compatibilities just in case.


1.) They are both incapable of taking responsibility for their actions because there always seem to be extenuating circumstances for their mistakes.


2.) They always manage to hurt their children without even trying.


3.) They are both impulsive and never think of the consequences of their actions.


4.) Liz's children have different fathers. Sonny's children have different mothers.


5.) They both have a difficult time forgiving people who have hurt them, but they expect to be forgiven immediately after causing someone else pain.












6.) They are usually able to charm or manipulate their way out of sticky situations.


7.) Despite their mistakes they have both managed to keep people in their life that will gladly defend their actions no matter what they are.


8.) They keep repeating the same mistakes, expecting a different outcome.


9.) They both seem to be attracted to some form of danger, despite how it may affect their children.




...and finally





10.) They are both incredibly skilled at playing the victim.




Of course this entire post has been an exercise in jest, but imagine what it would be like if these two actually became involved. Their relationship would undoubtedly cause friction between Sonny and Jason. And there would obviously be more than a little tension between Sonny and the Spencer clan, given the Lucky and Liz connection. Actually the more I think about it a Sonny and Liz pairing may provide some interesting storyline material...something to think about.

  1. Paula,

    Great analogy! The only thing I could add is that I had my mind on Liz and Luke, since he feels sorry for her and if she would stop crying all over the place, this would be the ultimate revenge on Lucky's abandonment.

    But Liz and Sonny would certainly shake up everyone.

  2. Hi Peggy!

    LOL! You know the Luke/Liz thing actually ran through my mind the other day when they were talking. At this point I'm not sure I would be surprised at anything that happens with Liz. I can't say I am ready for her breakdown. I am already tired of her crying all the time. I wish she would just pick herself up, acknowledge what she has done and move on.

  3. Hi Paula
    love your blog! all the points you hit on Liz and Sonny were so true!

    I have a request to make, could the font in your blog be in white because of the dark background? The black font is making it hard to read for me.

    thanks!

  4. Great thought out blog Paula, but IMO Liz needs to be alone for a very long time. She needs to be a single mother first and actually put her children before herself; that in itself would be a major accomplishment for her.

  5. Paula,

    After yesterday's episode I thought oh no, not Ethan and Elizabeth. Also nice to see Helena again, although what that entails other than the "unknown Cassidine" plot that dwindled when Franco showed up, I haven't a clue.

    I'm getting sick of Elizabeth crying too. In real life, you'd think she'd be sobbing in private like the rest of us do. The public displays of tears seems to be getting on everyone's nerves.

    Back to the who-should-Liz-hook-up-with-next theory board. I guess Luke is out, eh?

  6. OK, time for me to weigh in. I agree, I could see a Sonny/Liz pairing. At the same time, I wonder about Ethan hanging around in Liz's orb. Doesn't seem like he has much going on otherwise and appears to be overdue for a new romantic interest :)
    Given Luke's disassociation with Nicholas, a Luke/Liz pairing would be a stretch in my opinion, but hey, we're talking soapland, here. No one has mentioned Jason. Any thoughts there?

Could Guiding Light Alum Stephanie Gatschet Be Looking to Return to Daytime?

I stumbled upon something interesting while scrolling through Instagram last night. It was a comment posted in response to a General Hospital video. The video was reposted by actress Laura Wright (Carly, GH; ex-Cassie,GL). The response came from actress Stephanie Gatschet.

You may recall that in addition to playing Madison North on All My Children, Gatschet played Cassie's daughter, Tammy, on Guiding Light.

Gatschet's comment to Wright was "I miss creating melodrama...keep an eye out for a good role for little ol' me. I wanna play!"  (Check out the screenshot below)



So could Gatschet be eyeing a return to daytime? How cool would it be to see her starring opposite Laura Wright again?

Gatschet most recently starred in the web series Misguided.

GL Alum Launches Indiegogo Campaign for Music Video!

UPDATE: Morgan Englund's Indiegogo campaign is now 76% funded. To meet his goal, $2,418 will need to be donated by June 2nd. 

To hear Morgan talk about his song Homeward Bound, be sure to check out my interview with him from last week at https://youtu.be/5Dyq4Tc7H-Y

Guiding Light alum Morgan Englund (Dylan Lewis) has launched an Indiegogo campaign to help fund a music video for a song he wrote called "Homeward Bound (A Firefighter's Song)", a fitting title and song for the actor who has worked as both a firefighter and paramedic. 

Englund is hoping to raise $10,000 for the creation of the video, which will be directed by Andrea Shreeman. So far $3,199 has been donated to the campaign with a month left to go. Numerous perks are up for grabs for those wishing to contribute to the video's funding. $5 will get you a thank you shout out on social media from Englund, while the biggest perk, at $1500, will earn you an executive producer credit and a VIP visit to the set.
