General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Elizabeth Baldwin (Rebecca Herbst) will need someone to lean on in the aftermath of what’s brewing for Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth). Since GH insiders point to Franco’s death, it seems Liz and her boys are about to be plunged into a world of darkness.
Elizabeth will no doubt try to keep it together for Cameron Webber (William Lipton), Jake Webber (Hudson West) and Aiden Webber (Jason David), but that’ll be tough when Liz is so distraught herself.
Since Elizabeth may end up feeling like she’s drowning in grief, who’s going to pull her out of the troubled waters?
Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma) will no doubt be there for Liz as a friend, so it’s possible that could bring them closer and turn into something more. However, Nik is all in on Ava Jerome Cassadine (Maura West) right now.
General Hospital spoilers say Nikolas intends to protect Ava and their future, so it’d be wise to explore other options – like GH bringing another love interest in for Liz in the months ahead.
Of course, Elizabeth will need time to mourn the loss if Franco is indeed killed off. Even so, Liz is bound to fall for someone else eventually.
Could this be a good opportunity for General Hospital to bring Lucky Spencer (Jonathan Jackson) back into the picture? Aiden adores Franco, so he’ll be devastated if his stepdad dies.
If anything’s going to bring Lucky home, it might be his son’s despair – especially since Elizabeth may be too upset to truly help Aiden cope.
This would be the perfect time for Lucky to step up for Aiden as well as Liz, Cameron and Jake. Laura Collins (Genie Francis) would no doubt love to have her son back in town and might support the idea of Lucky being there for the boys in the aftermath of this tragic outcome.
It’d be great to have Jonathan Jackson back in the role or even Greg Vaughan, but it’s easy to imagine General Hospital going for a recast if they can’t lock in a familiar face from the past. That’s particularly true if GH writers want to reunite Liz with Lucky for a long-term love story.
Bottom line, Elizabeth is going to need a love interest once she moves on from Franco. It makes sense to bring Lucky back since GH could use his history with Liz to stir up some old feelings. They wouldn’t have to start from scratch with someone brand-new for Elizabeth.
How would you feel about Lucky finally coming home and being paired up with Liz again? Who do you want to see Elizabeth with down the road? We’ll fill you in as other GH news and updates become available.
