LUCKY/LIZ/EMILY/NIKOLAS, GENERAL HOSPITAL
Last year, we bestowed "Worst Teen Story" honors on Port Charles's adolescents because Lucky, Liz, Emily and Nikolas were slogging away in a "teenage wasteland." Happily, they've been rewarded with a story that has created several beautiful friendships.
Lucky and Liz's tender bond grew from a despicable act (her rape by an unknown assailant). Lucky's compassion and commitment, and Liz's corresponding trust, could teach a few adults how to behave.
The relationship between estranged half-brothers Nikolas and Lucky has been extremely satisfying. Though separated by years of discord and distance, they worked side by side to nail Emily's blackmailer, and ultimately, Liz's rapist, finding out along the way that they filled a need in each other's lives that only a sibling can. And with this caper came the first real female friendship that Liz and Emily have known.
Judging by the strong ties the group has forged, it won't be the end of the road for this compelling quartet. At least in '98, they were given license to drive - hard.
