Is Incest Best For General Hospital’s Kissing Cousins? (PROMOS)


Why does watching General Hospital’s Michael (Chad Duell) and Kiki (Kristen Alderson) kiss give me flashbacks to Guiding Light’s Tammy (Stephanie Gatschet) and Jonathan (Tom Pelphrey)?  Will Port Charles’ kissing cousins lock lips again this 4th of July week? 

Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and Shawn (Sean Blakemore) make up. Connie (Kelly Sullivan) throws a fit over Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and Sonny (Maurice Benard). Meanwhile, tensions rise in SOAPnet’s latest General Hospital promo. Watch both clips after the jump!

    This reeks of Flowers in the Quartermaine Attic….. Why do they insist on shoving this couple down our throats? I am not enamored of this new cast member, whatever they are calling her this week. I’m betting somewhere along the way we will find out that she is not a Q afterall and all their angst was for naught. Do I give a four leaf clover? I think not. Silly show.

    This storyline is gross. KA is the luckiest girl in the world to have snagged CD in real life, ’cause it’s not believable on screen, at all. She’s in the bush leagues and he’s in the MLB.

    You are right, Guiding Light did the kissing cousins couple first with Tammy and Jonathan. Surprisingly they became a major couple on the show and fan favorite!

    the only good incest storyline was when cousins Jonathan and Tammy got together and eventually married.

    i don’t expect Ron C. to go anywhere close to that.

    Kiki will end up being Dr. Silas’ daughter or someone else.

    Kissing cousins. Uncle and Niece (OLTL’s Natalie and Uncle Jared). Brother and Sister (OLTL’s Tina Lord and David Vickers. Whatever. It’s just, gross.

    On one German soap their major couple for the first years of the soap, which of course has to be called “Forbidden Love”, were twins separated shortly after birth. They even got their happy ending in the show’s 4000th episode in January 2012.

    So I can take Kiki and Michael and have no doubt that Carlivati eventually will reveal that they aren’t related. And yeah, on GL it worked…

    When was this? Do you mean Verboten Liebe? With Christian, Olli, and Jessica? When was the incest pairing? I just started watching the show recently.

    It is gross. Oh, I just looked it up, Natalie & Jared were not Uncle & Niece. They were husband and wife. Jared’s father was Charlie Banks & his mother was Valerie Banks.

    Yes that’s the show. The original story aired in the 90s. The roles, Julia and Jan, where recast in 2011 and brought back as part of the limited 8 months on-location-shoot on Majorca when the show was extended to an hour. They then went off together in January 2012 after the actors contract expired with Julia leaving her husband Ricardo and Jan leaving the church; having served as a priest for the last 10 years.

    Jared pretended to be Jared Buchanan in order to keep the real Buchanan “David Vickers” out of the family and Natalie helped with the scheme. Natalie and Jared fell in love and used to sneak off to be alone all while pretending to be Niece and Uncle.

    [quote=EricasEvilTwin]Mackenzie at one point jared was passing himself off as a buchanan and thats when they were initially becoming attracting to one another[/quote]

    I know that, but in the end it showed that Natalie and Jared were not blood related. They were husband and wife. Just because Jared passed himself off as a Buchanan, it didn’t make him one.

    Assuming they do turn out to be unrelated, we are still left with the unfortunate reality of watching them slobber all over each other, while I might add, knowing that neither Liz or Sam will hit the sheets with anyone this decade. *shudder*

    [quote=katehhoward]OH pleae DYNASTY TOPPED ALL OF THESE WITH ADAM AND FALLON TONGUING each other. Blood siblings playing tongue war.[/quote]
    Can easily be topped by “Forbidden Love”, where the twins ended up sleeping together.
    And with that not enough. Julia’s son at one point wondered if he might be his uncle’s son before starting a relationship with his cousin. The twins and cousins both remained as couples being written off together.

    Tony DiMera’s incest has been retconned in and out of existence. But here’s the story: back in the 80′s, he fell in love with a woman named Renee DuMonde. Before they could consummate their relationship, they found out to their horror that Renee was actually his half-sister through Stefano, and her “sister,” Lee DuMonde, was actually her mother. Awhile later, Daphne, Tony’s mother, confided in Tony that Stefano was not actually his natural father. Tony happily had sex with his ex-sister, but she was murdered the same night.

    When Tony came back on the show in the 90′s, his past was retconned to make him Stefano’s son after all, which made his hookup with Renee incest. Since he’d already had one sister, hey, what the hell, might as well go for another one. He then fell in love with and married his adopted sister, Kristen.

    Now that Tony’s past has been retconned yet again so that the guy who came back in the 90′s is actually his cousin Andre, both instances of incest have been wiped out in one fell swoop. Andre would be Kristen’s first cousin by adoption (which is no relation at all by Salem standards). And they have obviously retained Daphne’s revelation about Tony’s birth father, since Tony has made several comments recently about not being a DiMera by blood—which means his hookup with Renee is not technically incest either.

    Further retcons may change this, however.

    But the all-time winner on the Ewww! scale, as far as I’m concerned, is Marie Horton. When the show began, she was a graduate student dating a young man named Tony Merritt (who was not related to her at all). When he left her, her first course of action was to immediately marry his father. After that didn’t work out, she began falling in love with a new doctor at the hospital. This new doctor turned out to be … none other than her long-lost brother Tommy, presumed dead in Korea, with amnesia and a new face! As my book puts it, “While overjoyed to have her brother back alive, Marie was shocked and confused to have fallen in love with him.” Confusing indeed. I don’t blame her for running off to a convent after that. — (from Spoiler Free Days)

    Douglas Marland’s Incest: AS THE WORLD TURNS – “One of the more puzzling aspects of the Snyder family involved near-incestuous relationships, the most confusing of which involved Lily and Holden (Jon Hensley). Lily was dating safe, kindhearted Dusty Donovan (then played by Brian Bloom) in 1985 when brooding stable boy Holden Snyder taught her how to ride horses. Sensing a palpable chemistry between Byrne and Hensley, Marland paired them up. The problem was that if Iva was Holden’s sister and Lily was Iva’s daughter, then Holden was Lily’s biological uncle. To straighten out the mess, Marland had Iva learn she had been adopted by Emma (Kathleen Widdoes) and Henry Snyder at a time when they believed they could not conceive children. Another, more controversial story aspect was Meg Snyder (then played by Jennifer Ashe) falling in love with Josh Snyder in spite of knowing he had raped her sister. Marland revealed Josh had been brutally beaten by his father for years, but some fans still never warmed to the Meg/Josh relationship. Another Snyder story involved real incest, when Angel Lange (Alice Haining) arrived in Oakdale. She had been Holden Snyder’s brother Caleb Snyder’s wife while he lived in Chicago, and had aborted his child. On the rebound and angry about Caleb’s shoddy treatment of Angel, Holden married Angel and they moved to Europe. When they returned a year or so later, Angel refused to give him a divorce even though everyone knew he was in love with Lily. What seemed to be selfishness was actually abject terror of what her father Henry Lange (James Rebhorn) would do to her if she were alone. Sure enough, one night Henry crawled into Angel’s bed and forced himself on her, as he had been doing ever since she was a little girl…Caleb learned the baby Angel had aborted was her own father’s.” – Wikipedia

    [quote=J Bernard Jones]Oh, let’s not forget brother & sister Brian & Paige Madison’s love story on The Edge of Night…in 1979. LOL[/quote]

    OMG!! I forgot all about that!! Thank you so much for reminding me about that. Of all shows I’d love to see resurrected, Edge of Night is at the top of my list.
