Frank may or may not like Liz but he understands her cachet with the audience. That's why he pairs her up with his favorite OLTL stars. Not because he hates her, but because he knows a lot of the audience loves Herbst and will follow her into any terrible storyline or pairing. He uses Liz/Becky to put Howarth and Easton over to the audience.
Yeah, as much as I love Wally and Judi, there really is no story for them at this point. Unless they bring back Sonny or Mimi, or bring in their other kids, I would say maybe rest them for a little while. Have them get married and go off together.
I know Stefan was 'the good one' - until he went nutso - (I wouldn't hate him back, personally, at this point ... lol) but it makes sense to me that Nikolas is so spectacularly shitty and Spencer is such a hot mess. I love it.
He really doesn't seem too. It was Dan/Chris who seemed to praise Liz and want her as a center on the show. Frank doesn't give a [!@#$%^&*] about the GH 'stars'. He wants his own 'stars'.
It's like he hears what fans wants and then punishes them. You want more Liz? You hated her propping Franco? Well here's Liz propping Finn (who doesn't need it; Anna did that) instead of using her literally anywhere else where it makes sense. It's just so bizarre.
And now they're trolling us with her daddy. It's Frank with the Lucy football again ... unless it's really a Finn story. Like how Liz's rapist going free was a Franco story.
Can't imagine why a producer signalling "Good riddance" about a show that the audience watching loved enough to stick with to the end might have been poorly received by said audience.
I mean, come on. I don't recall that moment and, yes, SB was probably unsalvageable by then but this is classless, even if one agrees with the sentiment.
