DC's Top 10 Soap Opera Couples of 2012
No. 6: Jason and Elizabeth, General Hospital
As if we needed any more proof that disgraced ABC Daytime exec Brian Frons has left the building, Liason was back in 2012! The micromanager who forced an end to Liason's love story on General Hospital wasn't around to stop Jason (Steve Burton) from leaning on Liz (Rebecca Herbst) when his marriage to Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) began to crumble. While we actually sided with Sam during their bust up (Who resents his wife for possibly becoming pregnant via rape?!), we can't say we didn't swoon when Jason stole a couple of kisses from Liz.
Alas, Burton's real-life decision to leave to the sudser—and TPTB needing to quickly wrap up the baby switch caper—led to an abrupt end for Liason 3.0. We still appreciate the effort! Besides, Steve-O has to get bored in Tennessee at some point and come home to Port Charles, right?
