DC's Top 10 Soap Opera Couples of 2012
No. 1: John and Sam, General Hospital
As a rule, lightning never strikes twice when soap couples are reunited on different daytime dramas. Rules were meant to be broken on General Hospital in 2012, when Port Charles alums Michael Easton and Kelly Monaco re-ignited their insatiable chemistry on GH. As vengeful cop John McBain, and pregnant rape victim Sam McCall Morgan, Easton and Monaco proved every bit as hot as vampire rocker Caleb and his bitchy, fang-banger, gal pal Livvie from PC.
McBain was there for Sam when her emotionally-stunted hubby Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) couldn't be. Unfortunately for John, his connection with Sam cost him his Llanview-based family, as Natalie Buchanan (Melissa Archer) ended their relationship and banned him from their son's life! Judging from the way he still looks at Sam, we'd say McBain thinks the sacrifice was worth it. Besides, Sam's mama Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is the best attorney in soaps. (Sorry, Nora!)
