Daytime Confidential's Top 10 Couples of 2008
No. 7: Holden and Carly - As the World Turns
As the World Turns took one of the biggest gambles of the year by breaking up it's two most popular legacy couples (Jack and Carly and Holden and Lily) and pairing Carly (Maura West) with her best friend's husband. Our knee-jerk reaction was the coupling of Carly and Holden (Jon Hensley) was nothing short of heresy, but the undeniable chemistry between Maura West and Jon Hensley, coupled with the many classic soap complications their pairing brought about for the extended Snyder clan, had us wanting to see more of this intriguing couple, much more. Too bad As the World Turns brought the storyline to a screeching halt in favor of returning to the tried and true complacency of Holden and Lily.
