Well now a big story with them is starting that touches upon Sami's history in a big way and looks like it will be an long-burning, well-crafted, umbrella story that could lead to Sami and EJ finally trying it out for reals. (At least, that's what the most recent interview with the headwriters sure made it sound like!) So I'm back in like Flynn!
Then there is Elizabeth and Matt on General Hospital. I'll be the first to admit that after a great start when Garin Wolf took over, the show is back to being utter and complete shite! To top it off they canned Lexi Ainsworth (who played Kristina) to replace her with a hotter, older-looking actress (not cast yet), and I loved Ethan/Kristina and their chemistry (sniff, sniff, see icon!). However, I still love me some Brandon Barash (plus, plus, he was in Tell Me You Love Me with Ian Somerhalder -- they were in ONE SCENE TOGETHER!! True fact, Adam Scott was in it as well. Alas no screen-share-age), even if I'm still waiting for them to pair his Johnny up with someone I like.
And .... Matt and Elizabeth. I never really cared much for either actor in any pairing before (although, I do have soft spot for Lucky/Elizabeth when it's Jonathan Jackson, but I never *shipped* them), but now? I'm really loving their very slow build, great camaraderie, wonderful chemistry, that near-kiss (why do they keep saying they kissed, they didn't kiss, it was a near-kiss, damnit!), ooh boy! Caliente! I can't help it; their scenes make me happy.
I know I have a few soap-fans on my flist: Do any of you know of any message boards/communities for Matt/Elizabeth?
So, yeah, I'm enjoying some soup couples again for the first time in a long time! Depending on how things go, I might start writing about these soaps a bit more here. We'll see. :) (If I do, I'm so making an EJ/Sami and Matt/Elizabeth icon each!)
