It’s been a while since Elizabeth’s (Rebecca Herbst) love life was front and center. For many years she and Lucky stole the stage. After Lucky (Jonathan Jackson) left her and Port Charles, Liz has been looking for love and finding it in the wrong people (AJ- Sean Kanan). What I am thinking now is that Elizabeth may find herself in a new love triangle. After Lucky, she rekindled her old feelings for Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) but her feelings for AJ stood in their way. Now that she realizes she loves Nikolas, and their affair wasn’t just a pointless mistake, he has moved on with Britt (Kelly Thiebaud). I can’t help but wonder what Nikolas will do once the truth comes out about baby Ben. Once Nikolas knows that Britt stole his own sister Lulu’s baby, how would they ever get back from that? Can their relationship be repaired after such a betrayal? My guess is that he will turn to Elizabeth.
At the same time, Ric Lansing (Rick Hearst), Liz’s ex-husband and brother of mobster, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) is back in town. Sonny isn’t the only one in that family with a dangerous reputation. Ric has committed his fair share of crimes including kidnapping a pregnant Carly and keeping her captive in a panic room- all the while Elizabeth was living in the same house without a clue. He has lied, cheated, and manipulated.
There are two very strong fan bases for Elizabeth and Nik and Elizabeth and Ric. It will be interesting to see where the writers will take this. If Elizabeth was presented with a choice of Nik or Ric, who do you think she should choose? Weigh in and leave comments below!
