The Best and Worst of 2014

As we come to the close of 2014 let's take a look back at what we loved and hated about GH this year.

At the top of my list has to be the "Fluke" storyline. I am almost to the point where I just don't care who "Fluke" really is. It is someone who had plastic surgery to step into Luke Spencer's life and whose goal is to take Sonny down. Who is it? Does anyone care anymore???

At the second on my list of the worst of 2014 has to be the resurrection of characters who just won't die. Although I love a good villain, the Cassadines just keep coming back no matter what and 2014 saw the re-birth of Stavros and Helena. As the year ends, Stavros is dead again (we hope) and Helena is spending the holiday with her beloved grandson Nikolas.

Another character that just won't stay dead is Heather Webber. The revelation that she was really Franco's mother wasn't all that shocking nor was the fact that Scott Baldwin was his father. What was annoying was that no facility seems to be able to keep her locked up. With her history you would think they would take precautions.

The kidnapping of babies is getting to be too much as well. Can anyone expect to have a baby and bond with it the first few weeks or should any expectant mother expect that their bundle of joy will spend the first few weeks or months with the resident psycho du jour?

Characters coming back from the dead seems to be the theme lately. Jason is back but doesn't remember being Jason and for as close as so many think they were to the former mob hitman, NO ONE RECOGNIZES HIM??? Yes his face is different but no one recognizes his VOICE??? UGH!!! It seems that Jason is a part of Helena's evil plan which somehow involves Fluke, Faison and Jerry (another villain who just won't die!).

So what was good about GH this past year???

The addition of Michelle Stafford as crazy Nina Clay was a great coup for GH. She is one helluva actress and although the character of Nina is annoying at times, Michelle plays it to perfection.

The Felix/Brad?Lucas storyline was fun and so needed. It also ended too fast. Also loved the Epiphany/Milo hook-up but that too was not explored enough.

I loved it when Duke finally stood up to Anna. Anna became very self-righteous and Duke was becoming so wimpy. When Duke finally stood up for himself and actually raised his voice to her, well, I was cheering. Duke the mobster is far more attractive than down-on-his-luck-looking-for-a-job Duke.

The kids of Port Charles have been entertaining. Spencer is what a Cassadine kid should be. Privileged, spoiled and manipulative. Gotta love him! You can tell that Josslyn doesn't spend nearly enough time with her dad and takes after her mom Carly. The competition between Spencer and Cam for Emma's affection has been wonderfully played by all involved. Fast forward a few years and I predict more fireworks between these kids.

It was nice to have retro characters back in the spotlight for a bit. Lucy and Kevin, Felicia and Mac, Bobbie and Scott- it was really great for long-time fans to see what these characters are up to now. Sadly the show stretches out some story-lines until the fans just are fed up but hey, we keep coming back for more, don't we?

I love that Johnny is back and although there is a lot of criticism about the mob wars, I like the Jeromes and I love Sonny!

It has been nice to see the Quartermaines again and hopefully this will help to balance the mob focus of late.

I do love Tracy and Luke together and cannot wait for the real Luke to return.

There does seem to be a lack of female characters for all the eligible men in Port Charles. If I have to see Nikolas and Elizabeth reunite again, well, I just can't. He finally got wise to Britt but there is no one for him to hook up with. I cannot see him and Carly together and Sam is his cousin so who is left?

I loved it when Alexis finally gave in and hooked up with Julian. Hopefully we see them back together in 2015.

I have to admit that I do like Patrick and Sam together. Now you know they are going to get close and then BOOM! Jake is going to remember who he is. That's soaps for you. No such thing as happy endings, stability or a lack of drama.

What did you hate or love about 2014?? Please leave your comments.
