Did Lightning Finally Strike Thrice For General Hospital's Michael Easton and Kelly Monaco? (POLL)






They made us strain our necks hoping some dark-haired, sexy beast might take a bite, as Caleb and Livvie on Port Charles. Years later, they reunited on General Hospital as top cop John McBain and troubled mob mama Sam McCall, proving that, though a rare occurence, lightning can strike twice on soaps.

However, when a real-life legal dispute saw McBain having to beat a hasty retreat from fictional Port Charles—only to be replaced by grouchy doppelganger physician Dr. Silas Clay—we at Daytime Confidential started to wonder if Michael Easton and Kelly Monaco's previously palpable chemistry had disappeared. Oh we of little faith!

The slow-burning saga of Silas working to save the life of Sam's ailing son resulted in the emotionally-wounded widow and mother bonding with the doc, whose bedside manner initially made Nurse Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) seem pleasant by comparison. The moment Sam and Silas kissed, I was once again sold on the majesty that is an on screen pairing between Easton and Monaco.

That's right folks. I's done been converted! Pass the collection plate. I've seen the dark, smoldering light! My DC counterpart, Luke Kerr, however, still isn't feeling the pairing — a fact that is debated on the next Daytime Confidential podcast ad nauseum. Now we want to know where you stand.

Is the third time the charm for Easton and Kemo?

   

Yes! Michael Easton and Kelly Monaco still have it. Bring on Sam and Silas!

No! They should leave well enough alone, and put Easton and Monaco with other actors!

It took a while but hell yeah they still have it! Didn't think it would work again but it did. Monaco and Easton just have it!

Certain actors can play any role and their chemistry shines through. KeMo and ME are that type and beyond. LOL! 3 times over. I'm completely excited for Siam!

Yes, LIGHTENING has struck THRICE for our hot & sexy Siam pair. It's rare to find such a talented pair of actors, that is Michael Easton & Kelly Monaco, set the standard for "Onscreen Soulmates" twice, let alone a third time. But, there it is on the screen...just MAGIC! So glad Jamey you are on board, now we just have to work on Luke. Wink

Oh yes, once they finally kissed I felt that sizzle. They always have easy chemistry, but I didn't actually care about them as a couple until that moment.
I think the sl would benefit from some ... I can't think of the word I want right now, not exactly consistency, but presence. It's hard to get invested and follow them b/c the Danny story is so off/on. It's not completely back-burner, but it's not in the forefront either. It just randomly pops up. And I'm not completely sold on Silas either. I guess I still miss John.

I am so happy they paired them again because it makes it so easy to avoid them both.

Yes, I watched them on Port Charles, where they really smoldered!!! I would like to see a Silas/Sam coupling. KM has a way of looking at ME with those eyes, very flirty. PLEASE GH, bring on some hot romance!!!!

Not sure if this will post: but yes they have done it 3x. Have never seen a sexier couple or a couple with more magic together than Michael and Kelly.
I have watched PC but not until after seeing them on GH. They are so natural together it is not like acting it is like spying on someones private conversation. GH just need to put them on more to bring out the sizzle they bring to the screen.
