'GH' Scribes on Franco and Elizabeth: "We're Not Trying to Rip Apart This Nice Couple"

Will Elizabeth be torn between two men on General Hospital?
Is Dr. Griffin Monro (Matt Cohen) going to come between Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth) and Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst) on General Hospital?

GH Co-Head Writers Shelly Altman and Jean Passanante answered that very question in the January 2, 2017 issue of Soap Opera Digest.

They told the magazine, "We have worked very hard to build Franco and Elizabeth as a couple and we will continue along that path. Griffin will certainly become a factor in their life as time goes on, but we're not trying to rip apart this nice couple."

It sounds to me that the couple they intend to write for is Franco and Elizabeth, while Griffin will develop feelings for the beautiful nurse at some point.

I don't have any problem with a triangle, but I really don't want to see Elizabeth painted as a fickle tart, unable to choose between two men.

Who are you rooting for? Sound off below!
