They are killing me with this. KILLING ME. How can Elizabeth and AJ keep being so cute and not be making out?
Frank Valentini had better have been lying through his sneaky little teeth when he said AJ wasn’t the new man on her horizon, is all I’m saying. Because, daaaaaaaamn:
MICHAEL: What was that about?
AJ: The check that Tracy wrote to fund the Nurses’ Ball bounced and I was telling Elizabeth about it… who could not have been nicer. And I just–I don’t know. I just wish we could–
ME: GO MAKE OUT WITH HER RIGHT NOW?
AJ: –make that commitment happen.
Okay, fine. But seriously, you guys. I need them to make out so hard.
And they’re not the only ones! Because Sam and John are working together to solve the riddle of all the vampire craziness, and she keeps doing things that make him look at her like this…
And that is clearly the universal sign for WE NEED MAKE OUT POST HASTE. They also keep having cute conversations like this:
SAM: I’ve got a better idea. I’ll go.
McBAIN: Whoah, whoah, whoah, whoah. Have you thought about who else is on that Ferncliff roster right now? You’ve got your Todd Manning batting lead off, you got your Heather Webber hitting clean up–
SAM: Yes, and I don’t think you should worry about it. I’ll stay away from all of them, I promise. And besides, I think that Lucy thinks I’m this Livvie, and she wants to protect her. So maybe I can use that to work in our advantage.
McBAIN: [adorably amused] So what, you’re going in there as some sort of civilian consultant?
SAM: I’ll let you know what I find out.
McBAIN: Hey, Sam? Please be careful.
Where, she, in turn, looks at him like this:
And I just can’t take it. Why aren’t they making out all time? WHY?
It’s so nice to have a Sam pairing I can actually root for again, y’all. Which makes me extra hope that ABC, Prospect Park, and the actors are able to work out some sort of deal to keep at least McBain in Port Charles — even if he’s just playing a remarkably similar cop named Ron McPain. Because, let’s face it, for chemistry like this? I am willing to be flexible, writers.
(But the correct answer to the poll in that link is clearly Sonny/Brenda 4EVER! That is always the correct answer.)
