Anna vs. Sam: Who Does General Hospital's McBain Share The Most Heat With?



Port Charles' tortured, supernatural lovers Michael Easton and Kelly Monaco reunited as different characters on a different soap earlier this year. Since that time, General Hospital's John McBain and Sam McCall have threatened to pick up right where Caleb and Livvie’s steamy exchanges ended.

On recent podcasts, Daytime Confidential’s Jillian Bowe has pointed out that John isn’t short on chemistry opposite Finola Hughes’ Anna Devane either, and I must admit she’s right. I don't know about anyone else, but I wouldn't mind seeing an Anna/John/Sam triangle!

Who do you think McBain shares the most heat with?

I prefer him with Sam. I wouldn't mind if John and Anna had a fling. Explore the chemistry and distance a John/Sam pairing from the destruction of John/Natalie.

John McBain is a romantic looser. He sucks the life out of every pairing he's in. As a jolie fan, I waited and waited, for years for him to find a balance between his career and Natalie. I was so thrilled that he seemed to get there at the end of OLTL. I get that John has to fit in at GH so Natalie will dump him, but that doesn't mean I want to see him screw with another woman romantically. I've enjoyed John on GH so far, just for being John. He's better without a pairing. Let him make sexy eyes at every female in PC, but he and Natalie need to make it work, even if it's off screen for now.

I think Anna's got her hands full in the Luke/Tracy triangle, so I don't thing McBain is in the cards right now.

Anything that gets Sam away from that drip that she's married to now is okay by me, but I hate to see them break up Natalie and John (especially with their son in the mix). If he's going to be around, though, I guess he's got to be paired with someone.

It's hard to believe the old soap rules still applies that everyone has to be paired up with someone onscreen, especially considering how little romance there is on GH.

ME has chemistry with FH, KeMo and probably the other actors on the show and should not be limited to what he did on OLTL with Natalie.

I agree with this. He's so handsome also, what woman in PC wouldn't want to spend some quality time with McBain? I liked him and Nat their first couple go rounds on OLTL, but it just got old too quick and it looked like they were zapping the life right out of each another.

I like him so far with Sam, but I want her to stand on her own 2 feet for awhile and find her baby. He's got great chemistry with FH too, but I see them just like I saw the McBain/Bo friendship. I don't want to see him with Carly though. I'd love to see him interact with RH too, let Sam and Liz fight over McBain instead of the Borg, his box of pain, and his vortex of suck!

I havent liked Sam or McBain before their scenes together on GH and I am not saying I like them now but they are at their best together. I have to wonder if I would have liked their characters if they had joined either GH or OneLife together.

Maybe it's just me, but the more John & Sam talked about their connection & the feeling that they knew each other (yawn), the less I felt any connection or chemistry at all between them. Now I just kinda want to see them in a light-hearted, sort of flirty friendship. When John returns to town, I'd like to see him interact w/ more characters & see who he sparks with. My suspicion is that John & Elizabeth could set Port Charles on fire just looking at each other, but I'm not locked into that pairing. I just want to see more before John settles in.

Sam and John Mcbain make an AMAZING couple! She was growing really boring with Jason. That type of boring storyline is what was hurting the ratings. Now that they have new blood and hot couples like Sam/Mcbain, my friends and I want to tune in every day again. It's been years since I felt like that about watching the show and since I've been as excited about a couple on the show. I think u need to ignore the silly fans who insist on Jason and Sam or u'll hurt your ratings. Keep up the good writing and keep that storyline going. Also, Michael and Starr and the triangle of Todd/Carly/Blair is great. I also think u need to keep Anna w/Luke. She is not hot enough for Mcbain. I'll stop watching if that happens. So tired of boring Jason and Sam. TEAM MCBAIN/SAM!!!
