    I will give Maurice Benard credit for not damaging his face through any cosmetic procedures or his body by bulking up too much. He actually looks normal.

    I just don’t get what all the fuss is about. We will see if ratings rise. Right now I cannot get into this soap at all. ….If you want to see yelling/screaming tune in.

    I’m not a big GH fan, but I hope the ratings go up, way up! The other soaps stand to benefit greatly from this because it would prove to the network “suits” that soaps are still a viable TV genre.

    Well Jamey, Liason won the supercouple smackdown a couple of weeks ago. I think the idiots in charge at GH know what couple could bring in the ratings – they just refuse to cash in on that gold mine. Can you imagine Sonny/Brenda AND Liason? I would be in heaven!

    I hope the writers don’t blow it. Sonny & Brenda are a super couple. Let them be one. I can’t wait to see them lay eyes on each other for the first time in years. They are so HOT together!!!

    Have Sonny now older and wiser, chose her over the mob once and for all. Maybe Jason takes over for awhile but then turns it all over to Johnny.

    Jason could team up with Sam in the PI business…or get drafted by the WSB or be a mercenary like Mac was when he arrived in Port Chuck…

    Let’s stop trying to turn GH into a daytime version of the Sopranos and bring back grand and sweeping romance, bring back the Quartermaines, bring back Laura and reunite her with Luke.

    OK well Jamie,

    I just got finished watching GH and all the waiting was worth it when she got on that elevator and the music played and she finally met eyes with Sonni I could feel all the emotions (LOVE, FEAR, ANTICIPATION AND DOWNRIGHT ANGST) through the tv screen it was great and there is only more to come! Aww yeah.

    This story has lost it’s steam, as far as I’m concerned. The plotting, pacing and content has been RIDICULOUSLY boring and contrived, and I STILL can’t believe that Guza had spent seven LOOOOONNNNNNNGGGG years watching his telephone and e-mail, waiting with bated breath for his “muse,” Vanessa Marcil Gio(something!) to come back and this is the BEST story that he could come up with!!! Talk about an EPIC FAIL!

    If Guza TRULY cared about this character, he would have taken a little time and crafted a CREATIVE, INTRIGUING and INTERESTING story for this woman to come back to. This crapola that is being played out onscreen right now seems like it was written by some random intern who has NO history with the show at all.

    If I were Guza, I’d be hanging my head in shame!!!! This story is HORRIBLE, and I am only a few footsteps away from just not giving a damn anymore!!!!!!!!

    This board should be re-titled “Negative Confidential” come on Brenda hasn’t even made her way back to Port Charles and almost everyone on here is ready to bring out the firing squad. I for one can see it playing out very nicely and I am willing to give the show and definitely VM-G a chance on this one. Lighten up people before all you Kill joy’s get what you want and GH and the rest of these shows are off the air and then what will you complain about.

    ___________________________________________________________

    OK supercouple smackdown they won this right(COOL) is it that thing where you had to but the mag just to place your vote. So ya’ll paid money for this cause ppl brought a bunch of mags at one time. Just have to ask what about ppl that didn’t know about this. What about the ppl who just perfer to save money and send fan mail. Do other things to support there couple. So this means ya’ll are a gold mine. When ya’ll were together last time and the ratings didn’t sky rocket. Nothing really changed but the JaSam v. Liason fan war. So what was the gold mine.

    Soo the ratings are all controlled by ONE couple who were together and it still didn’t work out. So ya’ll didn’t save the show then.And the fact LuSam accpected more than Jiz. So the other fan bases don’t matter cause the Jiz fan base controles GH. So the Jiz fan base out number the rest of the shows fan base. If GH worked like that WOULDN’T THEY STILL BE TOGETHER. And don’t blame anybody eles for why they ended. Cause ya’ll were on that high about OH SB wants Liason and he has the power to get it just look. But now he doesn’t have the power to keep them together. So what is it.

    ABC is about MAKING MONEY look at what they did for the return of VM.Why cause they feel she will make them MONEY. If Jiz was that money maker they would be together. There would be no reason to end them IF THEY WERE A GOLD MINE. Please don’t bring up some so called Backstage BS that was proven wrong.

    So the there a gold mine IS FLASE. If they were they still be together cause they made them money. One couple won’t save this show or end it. Cause if it did they would correct it if it was that simple.

    WHAT WILL SAVE GH HOW ABOUT GOOD OVERALL WRITTING AND STORY TELLING.

    But again no it’s one couple and what a shocker that couple happens to be Liason what a shocker.

    Wait when did Jason and Lizzard control ratings. These statements hold no water. Like I didn’t see S&B wasn’t watching then but I saw Jiz and oh god no. That s/l not only sucked but it took 2 years of nothing and what did the ratings do where was the ratings boots that only Jiz fans can produce. They were together for 2 years so when they had there chance ratings did sky rocket ratings aren’t made by one couple. Where do you get your facts from that Liason makes GH. There are characters/couples that have big fan bases. Where is it said that Liason makes GH or breakes GH.

    Why has the Scrubs stuff not gotten a magazine cover? That is the ONLY good story on this show right now. This Sonny and Brenda stuff is just dumb and boring.

    shede80, I agree there can be a lot of negativity on the site, and I am not innocent of adding to it, but that is just because there is A LOT of unnecessary awfulness going on in soaps. I don’t see enough writers, EP’s that care enough to do the work to make these shows really good, and the few (Ron C.) that do, have their hands tied by the studios and networks, and the hacks (GUZA, Paul Rauch, Dena Higley, MAB, etc.) are congratulated and celebrated) I enjoy it when I get to post about how much I love stuff, which is usually about OLTL, but GH is in a place right now where I don’t have a lot of good things to say.

    watchingallday – I would also love to be able to shout from the roof tops that GH is back and as good as it has ever been. I have watched this show for more than 30 years and I have never seen it so bad. It is repetitive BS. The characters the fans love are back burnered and the characters that are given all of the screen time and the promotion are shoved down our throats with crap we have all seen before.

    Oh, Sonny is angry and lashes out well that is not new. Sonny has hissy fitted himself into a corner and needs Jason to get him out while his posse whine about how misunderstood he is. Has anyone watching for more than 5 minutes not seen that 20 bajillion times? I have said it before and I will say it again. I have nothing against the mob. I have nothing against Sonny and Jason. I am simply tired of the two of them and their two bimbo apologists taking up screentime that would be better spent on Edward or Monica. Give me some more Alice and Epiphany. Robin and Patrick are the only ones giving good drama right now and commercials are all about Brenda who is yakking it up everyday with characters I don’t know.

    Brenda should have been brought on with Robin or the Quartermaines. They could have Brenda come to town to check up on Brooklyn and found Brook mixing it up with Carly. Get Carly the heck away from Dante and Lulu. That stupid revenge plot is not doing the show any favors. Give everyone mob related 3 days tops each week and get the rest of the cast some scenes.

    Fan bases cry about this couple and that couple and how to raise ratings. No one couple is going to do it. Balanced story telling will.

    I will continue to complain until the showrunners start listening or the show is cancelled. I wonder which will be first.

    Shede80—

    With all due respect, if these soaps MIRACULOUSLY started cranking out PERFECT soap stories again, would there really even be a NEED or a DEMAND for websites such as this one anymore??? How many of us come on here to pass out dandelions and shower these shows with lavish praise??? Precious few of us. These sites are for us to VENT and discuss what’s right and wrong with soaps, but MOSTLY what’s wrong!!!! Until the soap gods wave that magical wand and it actually WORKS…(after constantly failing to work over the past decade or so as soaps have quickly diminished in quality!), the “negativity” that you speak about is gonna continue to be spread, and with good reason. I, for one, refuse to ignore this enormous elephant in the room and pretend that soap operas, even GH, are in good shape. All is definitely NOT well in the land of Port Chuck.

    If you are one of the very FEW people who are actually enjoying this “Welcome Home, Brenda” storyline, then I apologize, but most of us find it to be lame garbage that any first year scriptwriting major could have written while they were sitting in the hallway of the financial aid office waiting to see their advisor—-not a story that someone with over 25 years of experience penning stories for GH, such as Bob Guza, SHOULD be writing. Guza should have and could have done better. This man has penned many great stories over the years, and I simply don’t feel that this will go down in history as one of those stories.

    Again, to each his or her own, but I am simply not feeling this story!! If you want to call that “being negative,” that’s fine. I call it being HONEST!!!!!

    mr.sam – I have no clue what the smackdown was all about or where it was. Was it online or a magazine? But, I am betting there are plenty of fans of all couples who don’t know about it. Polls are always skewed. I guess this poll shows that those people who buy that mag or visit that website prefer Liason to any other couple. It is what it is.

    Ghvetfan – ABC couples from all three soaps went head to head until the final three (AMC – Zach/Kendall, OLTL – John/Natalie and GH Liason) were voted on. During the last round, Liason had more votes than Zendall and Jolie combined, which is why they won the ABC Supercouple Smackdown. Since Liason won the campaign, ABC SID did an interview with SBu and RH on Liason.

    Wow! All this anger over a little joke made to my fellow Liasonite Jamey. To begin with, I love Liason more than any other soap couple ever – and I did not mail in a single vote to the Soaps In Depth Supercouple Smackdown. So, I’m sure that there are other Liason fans that did not vote as well. I am equally as sure that some fans bought more than one mag and voted more than once. Liason went up against Jasam in round one and beat them. They also beat several other GH couples, and then beat all of the finalists from all the ABC soaps. What does this show? It shows that Liason has a lot of dedicated fans.

    What else shows this? The fact that there was an organized boycott of GH after the Liason breakup that caused GH to go from 2.5′s to 1.8′s in the ratings. (Liason ending was not the reason for some of the boycotters, but more of a last straw kind of thing)

    I don’t believe that one couple can save a soap. I do believe that balanced writing, character driven stories, and several key couples can save a soap. Jasam has pulled in very weak numbers (1.7 for Sexico), so I don’t think they can help GH. I think that Sonny/Brenda, Liason, Scrubs and Johnny/Maxie would really help the show’s ratings IF combined with great writing.

    Liason never really got a chance to be in an out in the open love story. They were bogged down with danger danger dialogue and backstage antics (I believe this even if some do not). If they were written for, those boycotting would come back. If they were given an out in the open love story this time they would certainly gain even more fans.

    You know this is the funniest thing thatI read all day I would ask if you were for real but you said this just like every other Liason is the god couple fan. It’s NOT ALL Jiz fans but the ones who double talk in there own post. First they say it’s JaSam fault in ratings drop. Then come back and say not one couple can save a soap. Whats even funnier is you take credit for a 2.5 NOBODY has proof that oh Liason was behind it. You bash JaSam for a 1.7 but what about the 2.1′s after that when JaSam was on and what about the 2.1 that was the rating when Liason were still together. So you blame JaSam for the worst but when after that when GH was doing good nothing. Back when GH did 2.3 and higher wasn’t soley because of JIZ.

    See back stages antics only and I mean only Jiz fans use that as an excuse. To why there couple wasn’t given a “fair chance” fist it’s SB wanted Jiz and what SB wants SB gets. But Then it’s backstage so they told SB no GMAFB. I bet you blame Kelly Monaco for Jiz eb=nding right. IN WHICH SHE WAS MORE THAN HAPPY AND WANTED LUSAM. So WTF is this backstage antics. AND EVEN THEN IF you got SB happy KeMo happy WTH would you mess up to couples. Plus JIZ was the ratings graber right so why not make money.And keep your crew happy.

    And just to let you know the hole time Jiz was together they didn’t do 2.5 they were the hole show. And the fact ratings jump highs and lows the never stayed at a 2.5. Please stop with this crap of they made this that and the 3rd then leave out the facts ratings stayed from 2.3-2.1 And the dropped NOT BECAUSE OF one couple. Or ppl stopped because that was the last straw. Lets not go into ratings cause it’s not a winning convo to say Jiz made them then you back track and say they don’t.

    WHAT NO JIZ FAN ANSWERS I SAID IT IN MY OTHER POST IF JIZ WAS THE RATINGS GRABER WHY ARE THEY NOT TOGETHER. NO STUPID BASH ANSWER BUT THE TRUTH. ABC IS ABOUT MAKING MONEY IF JIZ MADE THEM MONEY THEY WOULD BE TOGETHER. PLEASE ANSWER THIS QUESTION AND STOP WITH THE PPL BOYCOTTED FOR JIZ.

    Post like those hold no water at all. Back stage antics come on blaming others cause Jiz didn’t work out.

    I love how other fan bases somehow (like they did a head count) don’t amount to theres. They(JaSam) don’t help the show please. Where the proof of that.

    mrsammccall1 – (would you be the first man she prostituted herself to in order to steal money from as your name implies?)

    Actually, if you go and check the ratings history, days where Liason were promoed brought in 2.5-2.7′s. The night of passion (as we Liasonites call it) brought in 2.7′s while Sexico (Jasam)brought in a 1.7. Both were highly publicized and promoed events.

    My post was not double talk if you read it correctly. I do not think one couple alone can change the ratings. However, good writing coupled with good couples can. My point was that Jasam and the writing for Jasam have not brought in the ratings. The ratings were higher when Liason was together, but I also think that the writing was better then and that there were other couples (such as Skate) that helped (along with Liason) to make the ratings higher.

    I also think that my statement about back stage antics is a valid answer to your question about why Liason is no longer together although they had better ratings with them on. You may disagree with my belief, but that does not mean that you are correct and that I am wrong. Burton said that he wanted Liason. Becky said that the fans writing in for Liason is what got us our couple. Steve and Becky both said that they wanted Liason to continue and be out in the open, but they were informed that it was not going to happen. They were not happy about it and spoke out in an article at that time. The ratings were better than they are now (for whatever is the true reason), so ratings and money would not have been the reason for breaking them up. That leaves backstage politics/antics and favoritism. You can disagree with my theory – but you can’t call it wrong unless you are one of the parties involved. You weren’t there either.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    OH jokes on my name No I just happen to be a fan of the character and the role player. She was a con conned men for money to support her and her brother. Im not going to get into that BS s/l. But your joke happens to be wrong cause see she would have taken my name.

    OK Liason and Liason alone brought in 2.5-2.7 right so again as i said the ratings grabber Compared to JaSam but again what happend to the ratings they dropped right. Cause when JaSam were over she was with Lucky. 2.3-2.1 Those were the ratings for GH.Week in and week out 2.3-2.1 During Liason If you want to sit up hear and stake claim to the SOS and whatever rating to claim what about afterward. OH thats right you only procliam the positive side. You say JaSam drew a 1.7 FINE what about afterward the 2.1-2.2 that GH did. OH thats right no way they did that Jiz wasn’t together the saviors wasn’t on. IF JIZ AND JIZ ONLY DID A 2.7-2.5 WTF AREN’T THEY TOGETHER. ABC IS ABOUT MAKING MONEY if Jiz did that Jiz would be together. There was something that they didn’t draw to THE OVERALL SHOW. See again GH did 2.3-2.1 the hole time Jiz was together. And 2.2-2.1 in 2009 whilke guess who JaSam was together. So if they drew a 1.7 GH was duing 2.2-2.1 days while they still were together afterwards and there were days they got promoted and GH did well.

    AGAIN the backstage antics are why Jiz ended. OK I can’t say you were wrong cause I wasn’t there GMAFB. How can you sit there and blame something on a person being a fave WHEN THE COUPLE IN QUESTION INVOLES STEVE F’IN BURTON. Do you see your statement hold no water WHEN HE IS CALLED THE GOLEDN BOY OF GH. We all know he and RH wanted to do Jiz while still involed with other parings TRUE. But if SB gets what he wants why not Jiz. If JIZ MADE ABC MONEY and thats what ABC wants is MONEY to keep there show on WTF aren’t they together then. NO backstage antics will keep you this show from MAKING MONEY. Back to favoritism really come on now just come out and say her name your blaming one women over the end of Jiz. Just like that crazy sad group in the Liason fan base does. SO Kelly Monaco is behind this. When all she did was talk about LuSam do her first fan event with GV. And the fact she said she was so happy to be doing this couple. So what favoritism am I to believe she was going behind GV back to push for JaSam while doing interviews and events with this man and working with him still. And the fact the PTB even said they were shocked at how fans have taken to LuSam. So why would she leave doing this couple. And the fact she was written very well for. So if it’s not her who broke up Jiz back stage. Cause if 2 fave actors are happy and doing couples they like who did it. Why break up to liked couples for one please tell me.

    This backstage stuff holds no water cause GH was fine the actors where were they wanted to be so who did it.

    You know mr Sam McCall tptb did not want Jason their great great hero being anything but that and when you have such a tough and tumble guy like St Jasus you need a ride and die chick which for some reason Sam is suppose to fill this role. Odd if you ask me she is more a yes girl.

    Ravennite and ghvetfan – thanks for the support!

    mrsammccall1 – I only joked about your name to keep the discussion lighthearted. All too often the fan bases get too hyped up and nasty to one another. As to my other points, obviously you keep going past my main point so I will make it clear:

    NO ONE COUPLE CHANGES THE RATINGS!

    I do believe that good writing COUPLED with great couples can change the ratings (Liason being ONE of those couples). I’m sorry if my theory is confusing you.

    I will repeat that I do not believe Burton has the power that some think he does. He wanted more time off to be with his family and he was turned down. He wanted Liason and it was shut down. He wants more Quartermaine interaction and that isn’t happening. He is not as powerful as some think.

    I cannot wait until Jasam break up. There relationship is forced, contrived and a snoozer. It WILL happen eventually. No soap couple stays together forever. And when they do I will root for anyone they pair Jason with as long as it’s not Sam. Hopefully it would be Elizabeth, but if not, just having Sam out of the picture would be enough for me.

    Ravennite – She is a yes girl. Anything Jason wants, she will allow him. What is that? Her fans consider her this ride or die chick but I see her more like calamity Jane. She runs off to seek out info and adventure and Jason has to catch up to save her. Lucky and Jason were rolling their eyes behind her back during this last bit of foolishness. Everytime Sam goes all action girl, Jason has to rescue her. When has she ever been involved in a action type plot that didn’t look silly and forced? And , if they are all silly and forced, how is she an action heroine?

    If you think about chicks on TV who are the heroines, Sam isn’t similar at all. Buffy? Jennifer Garners part on ALias? Dark Angel? Jamie Sommers? They didn’t need someone to rescue them every week. They drove story and did the rescue. She doesn’t fit the bill.

    [quote=js3557]I do believe that good writing COUPLED with great couples can change the ratings (Liason being ONE of those couples). I’m sorry if my theory is confusing you.[/quote]

    How is it Liason was a “great couple” when they were never actually a couple at all? LMAO!

    As for your sense of humor, I found your insult to another poster, Mr. Sam McCall to be both nasty and rude and totally uncalled for in my opinion!

    sassydreams – I’m sorry that you took my joke that way. I don’t see how it could be insulting to the poster since I was making fun of a fictional character. Was I being rude to Sam McCall?

    Dear fictional character Sam McCall,

    I am so sorry that I insulted you by pointing out your bad behavior in a joke. Please forgive me.

    Sincerely yours,
    Real Person

    [quote=js3557]Ravennite and ghvetfan – thanks for the support!

    mrsammccall1 – I only joked about your name to keep the discussion lighthearted. All too often the fan bases get too hyped up and nasty to one another. As to my other points, obviously you keep going past my main point so I will make it clear:

    NO ONE COUPLE CHANGES THE RATINGS!

    I do believe that good writing COUPLED with great couples can change the ratings (Liason being ONE of those couples). I’m sorry if my theory is confusing you.

    I will repeat that I do not believe Burton has the power that some think he does. He wanted more time off to be with his family and he was turned down. He wanted Liason and it was shut down. He wants more Quartermaine interaction and that isn’t happening. He is not as powerful as some think.[/quote]
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Im just going to say this one last thing. If the writting sucks for him and Sam why would it change with him and Liz. There s/l sucked last time fan or not it wasn’t enjoyable. They had the same convo the same “issue” for 2 years. Plain and simple whats going to change oh they will be in the public. What could the possibly do. I just don’t see what Jason can do with Liz that can’t be done with Sam. The writters want it this way thats how they right. If they wanted Jason with the Quartermines it would be done.

    This is how they will write Jason with anybody unless they somehow change it.

    [quote=GHvetfan]Ravennite – She is a yes girl. Anything Jason wants, she will allow him. What is that? Her fans consider her this ride or die chick but I see her more like calamity Jane. She runs off to seek out info and adventure and Jason has to catch up to save her. Lucky and Jason were rolling their eyes behind her back during this last bit of foolishness. Everytime Sam goes all action girl, Jason has to rescue her. When has she ever been involved in a action type plot that didn’t look silly and forced? And , if they are all silly and forced, how is she an action heroine?

    When she wasn’t with Jason she did fine. She closed her PI cases without help from him except 2 times. But the funny thing is WHEN DOES JASON NOT SAVE ANYBODY. Let alone a women thats how Guza writes. They let her get only so far without his hel then he has to save her. IT’S HOW HE WRITES FOR ALL WOMEN.

    Name 1 and I will leave this board forever that can do what Sam does thats STILL on this show and not need saving.

    PS Sam kicked the TMK ass didn’t need saving. She saved Alexis from the TMK. She solved her PI cases without Jason. And her and Lucky did fine in Mexico. What ppl forget when oh she can’t do nothing without being saved IS JASON. HE has to be written that way but yeah forget what she did do right.

    And WHY bring up primetime show written for the women and women alone to be the hero this is GH HE WILL NEVER WITE LIKE THAT. WHAT SHOW DO YOU THINK THIS IS.

    She doesn’t fit the bill cause Guza won’t let her. Please just tell me one female on this show that can do what Sam does and not be saved by Jason. If Guza wrote those shows you named and he has JM character on there they would have been saved to.

    I just don’t see what Jason can do with Liz that can’t be done with Sam.

    Uhmm really??? Should I really take it there.

    Sam will always be lost as long as she is with Jason, and if any of the story about her being insecure about Brenda is true its another smack in the face to fans of JaSam. I mean is that not what happened before. She is with Jason because TIIC cannot see their precious Jason in the role of full-time father, and living the life he has said he has often dreamed about.

    I also resent the remarks that because Liason wins these contests it must be rigged get over yourselves sometimes a win is a win, there is nothing nefarious about it. I am sure every fansbase can be accused of stuffing the ballot box one way or another, so let’s get off our soapboax proclaiming stuff we can’t prove.

    I have tons of friends who watch GH and one of the things they all have in common is their love of good soapy drama and most agreed that while they may have loved JaSam the first time around (me included) this time its not working for them. I laugh when Jasammers say Jason and Liz were like brother and sister because that is what I see in JaSam 2.0 – It’s wondertwin powers when I see them now.

    And by the way GH once allowed women to be strong…can you say ANNA DEVANE

    Yeah Anna was she written for by Guza Im really not sure please tell me when do we see her and when the last time she was on this show. As I said on this show Anna isn’t on GH so who please I will say she is GH history but not now.

    Please take it there what will he do that he can’t do with Sam. What be a father leave the mob want a family. He can do that with Sam. He was out of the mob with Sam. He wanted a family with Sam and to marry her. I could have missed something but what can he do with Liz that he can’t do with Sam.

    Who said anything about it being rigged and about polls A Liason fan said something about polls. All I said was what did that truly prove. When other have one polls yes Liason one this one but again what does it prove. Other support there couple other do things and send in mail presents and support for their couple. Great for them they won Supercouple Smackdown. Who said it was rigged I must have missed it.

    Yes TIIC can’t see Jason as a father he couldn’t do that with Sam as they talked about. I don’t get how him being with Sam means he can’t do things if he was with Liz.

    You see JaSam as brother and sister and others saw Jason and Liz as bro and sis. There pov your pov

    I would love to see Sam with a new guy or if by the grace of God they write for Sam to be how she was in LuSam and let JaSam be 50/50. But when was a Jason relationship ever 50/50

    [quote=golinogal]I cannot wait until Jasam break up. There relationship is forced, contrived and a snoozer. It WILL happen eventually. No soap couple stays together forever. And when they do I will root for anyone they pair Jason with as long as it’s not Sam. Hopefully it would be Elizabeth, but if not, just having Sam out of the picture would be enough for me.[/quote]

    Forced and contrived please tell me what Jason and Liz was cause you want them back together. That whole 06-07 was BS made so it could be ok with them to be together. If it’s contrived for JaSam ity’s contrived for Jason and Liz. And there s/l you said JaSam is a snoozer. WTH was We can, We can’t what about Jake. Push Pull for 2 years that was such a mazing TV.

    And please what is your view of contrived I have to ask cause what they did to Sam and Lucky for Jiz wasn’t contrive I don’t know what was. Couples end all the time but that way just WOW.

    Also Jason to be paired with anybody aslong as it isn’t with Sam please name somebody that the writting will change with. Every female he’s with will start looking bad someway somehow. Sam gets sucked into his world and fogets about herself. Liz starts looking desspret and that she can’t do without him. Yes there is YT proof of that when she left GH while she was in the hospital not working. She also leaves her own job so you can’t say it’s not true.

    The writting won’t change for anybody with Jason sooner or later it will be ALL ABOUT HIM. So YES FREE SAM put him and Liz back together see if you enjoy her tossing phones across her room again and crying cause he stood her up fine by me.
