General Hospital fans have had mixed opinions about the complicated romance between Finn and Elizabeth. This relationship has gone through its fair share of ups and downs. However, the show’s creators have wholeheartedly embraced this enduring, on-again, off-again story. Michael Easton, who plays Finn, openly shared his thoughts with Soap Opera Digest. He shed light on the interesting journey of this central couple.
Easton honestly admitted, “I actually thought it was done, and then they’re-engaged it.” This means that the story of General Hospital has experienced its fair share of highs and lows. The show’s writers have remained dedicated to delving into the full potential of Finn and Elizabeth’s love story, despite its intricate history. He recognized the challenges that lie ahead, saying, “It’s an uphill battle because it has gone through a period of struggle and recovery. It had some momentum and lost it.”
The tumultuous nature of their relationship can be attributed to significant obstacles. One such obstacle was a shocking revelation by Finn that he was responsible for the death of Elizabeth’s first wife. Additionally, he had to admit deceiving her about a false pregnancy involving another man.
Easton remains confident in the creative abilities of the show’s writers. He also has faith in the talent of his co-star, Rebecca Herbst, to navigate these intricate twists and deliver a compelling storyline for General Hospital. He emphasized, “I always say the writers can do anything; it just takes some effort, and I know Becky will be good.”
Optimism regarding the success of the storyline was apparent in Easton’s words, as he expressed his hope that both he and Herbst would deliver performances that captivated the viewers. He added, “Hopefully, I’ll be nearly as good, and maybe we’ll make it thoroughly enjoyable to watch. And if not, they’ll take a different creative route. But I think it was just the right time to fully embrace this couple’s story. You can only sustain the ‘Will they or won’t they?’ suspense for so long.” Keep coming back to TV Season & Spoilers for all the latest General Hospital updates.
