General Hospital Showrunner Teases New Love Interest For Liz!



Elizabeth Webber's (Rebecca Herbst) love life has been a bit lacking as of late on General Hospital, but it looks like Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati intend to remedy the situation. Though he ruled out pairing Liz with Patrick (Jason Thompson) or AJ (Sean Kanan), in an interview with Sara Bibel at Xfinity, Valentini talked about their plans for bring love back to Liz's life.

Some people feel that she has a storyline that should rightfully be Liz’s, in that Robin was Liz’s best friend but Sabrina’s the one saving the nurse’s ball and getting involved with Patrick.

But that’s just wrong because Liz and Patrick are like brother and sister. It would be creepy if they were together. Liz has a new love interest on the horizon.

People love Liz and there is concern about her storyline.

I love Liz. I love Becky [Herbst]. She’s fantastic. But something needs to be built. I think that character’s been bounced around. She’s got three different children from three different men. If she’s going to say, “I love you” to somebody, it’s got to be real and it’s got to mean something. She’s not going to jump right into it. That’s not who she is. I think everyone’s forgotten a little bit what makes Liz the character you most identify with and most want to be. Becky’s got the acting chops to pull it off if you go through every step of the relationship.

Who do you think Elizabeth should be paired with? Read the entire interview at Xfinity.

I didn't take his comment about the baby daddies as a knock either. I took it as the writers use the baby story and then nothing original is written again for her. Mean while Alexis and Carly are written as mothers but also doing or being involved with other stories. As much as I love seeing Liz with the boys- at some points that was all she was given..

I would love to see her with Jax or Johnny.. However I really want to see her with someone strong that helps her work out all the issues that have been going on with her. Not someone she has to fix..

I think that A.J. is destined to be the man in Sabrina's life AFTER she is transformed into a beauty!

I wouldn't mind that at all. The brief exchange between them when AJ bumped into Sabrina at the hospital got my hopes up.

Aha! I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed that scene! A foreshadowing of things to come!

I totally have faith in Ron C.'s writing. He is giving Liz time to get over Jason's death, who she loved so much. Now I want to see her grow and become strong and not have to rely on a man, which how it always was under Guza's writing. I want to see her meet someone, take it slow, and let the romance grow. Now that is sexy. Take it slow! I can see chemistry between her and AJ, but I can also see Johnny.
