MOST BORING COUPLE|
NATALIE AND CRISTIAN, ONE LIFE TO LIVE
There's a belief that a soap couple can't be together for long without becoming boring. That said, Natalie and Cristian were a cliché in the making.
Oh, initially, the coupling held promise: Nat's a spitfire who had recently learned that she is the daughter of town pillar Viki; Cris was a sensitive artist with a checkered past. But when they hooked up, everything interesting about them seemed to fly out the window. Cris spent too much of their relationship searching for a job. Sassy Nat morphed into a perpetual damsel-in-distress. And it was puzzling that the show barely addressed the fact that Natalie's "new" sister, Jessica, was Cris's ex. No major awkwardness there? (You'd think the girls would've made some comparisons!)
Well, Cristian's dead, and we expect Natalie to move on. Hopefully, love will be more exciting for her the next time around.
