General Hospital is the soap that gave us the magic that is Anna Devane and Valentin Cassadine in 2022, as well as Sam McCall and Dante Falconeri and Spencer Cassadine and Trina Robinson. That is why it’s so hard to believe they went wrong so badly everywhere else.
General Hospital’s Chemistry-less Couple # 1: Elizabeth And Finn
Forget the fact that Hamilton Finn seemed like a stalker and emotional abuser through most of this contrived relationship in 2022, but unfortunately, Rebecca Herbst and Michael Easton have zero chemistry. It only goes to prove that you can’t stick to veteran and talented soap actors together and make it work. The chemistry has to be there.
Elizabeth and Finn were such a bad match that they hardly ever even went on a date and never even made it to bed. With Finn, Elizabeth was only a shell of her former self since he utterly disregarded her preferences and her limits while trying to manage her life and telling her that every choice she was making was incorrect. We are so relieved that it appears GH received the hint towards the end of the year.
General Hospital’s Chemistry-less Couple # 2: Maxie and Austin
Once more, pairing up two seasoned, excellent soap opera performers won’t result in a supercouple. The coupling of Maxie Jones and Austin Holt is another illustration of that. There was just no chemistry between them; Austin constantly looked to be hiding something, Maxie seemed to be doing the bare minimum, and we knew Howarth was stuck with Finn because his previous character, Franco Baldwin, was mysteriously killed off in 2021.
Finally, Maxie is realizing that it’s just not working between herself and Austin, and not a moment too soon.
General Hospital’s Chemistry-less Couple # 3: Britt and Cody
The character of Cody Bell has seemed ill-conceived from the start. He is an obvious liar and con man who, like Finn, seems to have no respect for women and talks down to them rather than to them. GH wasted the last months it had with Emmy winner Kelly Thiebaud for a character nobody likes, no matter how talented Josh Kelly is.
Now, Britt did have chemistry with Austin and these two could have been paired together and gone off into the sunset, clearing the way to bring back Franco, but instead, we got Austin with Maxie, Elizabeth stuck with Finn, and Britt now dying with no real love by her side. Sad.
