Arguably the most polarizing and heavily-debated daytime soap opera love triangle of this millennium (Give or take any combo of Sami Brady's 30 pairings on DAYS), has been Liason vs. JaSam on General Hospital. Fans of both pairings have stormed soap magazine polls, message boards and the comments of blogs like this one, to show their unyielding support for either #TeamJaSam or #TeamLiason.
Even bloggers got in on the fun. Yep, I'm biased. Sue me. Get yo' man before he leaves town, Nurse Liz (Rebecca Herbst). Climb those stairs!
Soon fans of Steve Burton's (Jason) enormously popular onscreen pairings with Herbst and Kelly Monaco (Sam) will have to come up with something else to fight over, as the actor and his character are leaving the soap opera.
In the Sept. 10-16 issue of TV Guide, Burton discusses how bad his timing is, considering the pair of broken hearts SuperJase will leave behind. Said Burton:
"There's a whole lot to wrap up quickly,' he admits. 'My timing isn't the greatest, but I can't control that. I gotta live my life."
Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst) is one lucky nurse on today's episode of General Hospital. She's got two hunky blondes—one with an accent—whipping out their big, ol' guns to fight to the death over her!
Methinks Liz should do a little kiss-kiss with both Ewen (Nathin Butler) and Jason (Steve Burton) before anybody goes bang-bang. Heck, she deserves it after being stuck between Laura's (Genie Francis) drippy sons! Watch a promo for today's General Hospital below. READ MORE
