Guiding Light: Should Josh And Harley Revisit Their Long Ago Relationship?



Josh Lewis (Robert Newman) is set to reach out to old flame Harley Cooper (Beth Ehlers) next week on Guiding Light, when he hires the cash strapped P.I. to find out just who his skanky preacher's wife Cassie (Nicole Forester) hooked up with. Of course the real shocker for both Josh and Harley will be that Cassie's booty buddy is none other than Harley's new boy toy Cyrus (Murray Bartlett).

If I were writing the soap, I'd have it be none other than Harley's scorned niece and Cryus's ex, Marina (Mandy Bruno) who happened upon the news that her aunt's best friend boinked her man. But that's not the point of this post. I know a lot of long term GL watchers really enjoyed the Josh and Harley pairing of the late 80's/early 90's. Since I didn't start watching GL until after the death of my beloved Santa Barbara in '93 I have no connection to Josh and Harley as anything other than good pals. So my question is, would fans be interested in seeing Josh and Harley drive back down memory's lane once their cheating insignificant others are outed?

Absolutely not! That ship has more than sailed and sunk!

Sure, why not? I always liked Josh and Harley. She was a great mother figure to Marah and Shayne.

Considering that I strongly believe that BE is leaving, no. I want Josh with Reva. They're the money couple, point blank. I have suffered through 2 years of him with Cassie. I don't need a Josh & Harley redux.

I'd rather see Josh with Harley than Cassie any day, but it's time to put Josh and Reva back together. I might consider going back to watch if that were to happen.

If BE heads to the west coast like I'm hearing, I'd love to see her head to Genoa City and take David off Nikki's hands.

If Josh and Reva can't be together I'd quite like to see Josh and Olivia as I missed it the first time round; it'd get Olivia away from Jeffrey, Josh away from Cassie and hopefully give Olivia her back-bone back.

David needs to be out of Genoa City and back in Pine Valley, with a comatose Dixie in tow.

Eh, I would like to see some flashbacks of these two. If I remember right, they had such interesting friend chemistry, she was a bit edgy then and at the time Josh was a single dad with Reva dead..I think Harley had a real connection to Maura and Shane

Harley's probably my favorite of all soap characters, I'm so bitter about Gus leaving. They didn't have to literally rip his heart out. How dumb and shortshighted - the staff should be fired for that alone.

I guess haha I am just a dedicated Cyrus and Marina Fan. I still don't see what Harley and Cyrus have but that could be since Harley messed up one of the best things going on GL. She only worked with gus or Phillip...

Harley is being written like BE is really leaving. I see Harley having a nervous breakdown and being shipped off to Oak Haven. Smile

I actually called this storyline in November on another MSG board having Harley go through a mid life crisis breakdown. She really needs to go to Ravenwood. maybe before BE leaves she can be the springfield slasher and start cutting people up like Natalia Rafe Remy !

I really liked their original pairing, but (if I remember correctly) it ended way too quickly (wasn't Robert Newman leaving the show and Josh saw a Reva look-alike on an Italian travelogue?)

I felt a little cheated that the pairing was nicely built up (I loved Harley burning Reva's clothes) and then very quickly overwith.

Would hate to see a similar story where they build up to it and then Beth Ehlers leaves. (I really have my fingers crossed that she'll wind up in Genoa City). However, if she re-signs with the show I would LOVE to see them connect again (with lots of flashbacks)

I'd love for BE to go to Genoa City. I'd love to see Harley and Lujack hook up. LOL

Oak Haven would be much better for BE, that way she can come out as Hayley Santos.

I wonder which P&G exec will have to lose their office for the Oak Haven set? Sad Maybe they can set it up in the lady's room?

As a newer viewer I only watched when Reva and Josh were together. GL to me has always been Reva and Josh so it's so gross and disgusting that Cassie and Josh were flirting LET ALONE MARRIED NOW. I want to watch them back together...not that I'm watching now but heck maybe I'd peek in from time to time if they were working they way back to the supercouple they used to be.
