WORST ROMANTIC MOVE|
MUSICAL COUPLES, PORT CHARLES
Where is the love? When PC adopted 12-week arcs this year, no one anticipated that the romances would also go sour after three months. We're talking about Kevin, Lucy, Ian and Eve, of course. Kevin and Lucy had a long history together, and then he suddenly wed "soul mate" Eve, who fled Kevin after finding out that Ian was her love from generations ago. Ooookay. Then, Kevin realized he was destined for Lucy - at least until "evil forces" caused Lucy to bed Ian, while Eve ran back to Kevin. Viewers tune in for romance, not bed hopping. Emotional investment in couples comes with time; yanking apart beloved pairings is hardly the payoff that the audience deserves.
