GENERAL HOSPITAL is riding a bit of a hot streak lately, thanks to some unlikely pairings that have unexpectedly clicked. The clear leader here is the red-hot Johnny/Olivia. This couple has taken up the torch of raw sensuality left behind when the Lucky/Sam hook-ups were snuffed. No matter where they are — garage, couch or (gasp!) in a bed — Liv and Johnny don't just strike sparks, they explode. And now we can add another surprise twosome: Nikolas and Elizabeth These old friends were surprisingly steamy as they slammed shots of tequila and canoodled at Jake's. Unlike so many friends who hook up, Liz and Nik really seemed to click. Rebecca Herbst in particular seemed to enjoy playing the sex kitten, and really vamped it up. Too bad Elizabeth threw cold water on the proceedings before things went much further than smoldering looks and suggestive talk.
I could also see something growing out of the Lulu/Dominic scenes, although I would prefer to see what happens if Coleman were to pursue her. Her gyrations on his bar were a high point during karaoke night, so how about it, GH? You already know Olivia/Johnny works beyond belief, so how about book-ending it with Coleman/Lulu? It's about time the romantic fireworks started outshining the gunplay in Port Charles again.
