Bye Franco

When Franco had his last tumor he admitted it had nothing to do with his serial killing ways, that it was just a defense cooked up by Diane . That explains why he hasn’t gone dark again .

Liz forced Kim to tell Drew about Oscar , she won’t be happy with Franco keeping secrets .

The Franco character should never have been brought back , perhaps RoHo will come back as a likable character.

ABSOLUTELY! It was a colossal mistake making him Franco. “Franco” died when James Franco walked off the GH set! RoHo has been wasted being goofy sous chef house husband to Liz. He was super interesting as FauxDrew he actually had a pulse. Bring on a totally new character for him to sink his acting chops into!

If GH is trimming the fat, they may opt to have Franco walk away from Liz and the boys due to the tumor and his potential dangerous behavior.

Right ! Let him
Leave a Martyr

But, wouldn’t that defeat the whole purpose of GH letting people go, ransomha? If they’re getting rid of actors for budget reasons, they probably won’t bring them back—unless the fans mount a major protest! :thinking:

It just never made sense for mama bear types Carly and Liz to date Franco. A man that kidnapped Aiden and inadvertently caused Michael’s rape. I could never get behind each pairing because it changed how we have been seeing each woman for decades.

I love RoHo. He is a great actor. He does well in any character he’s given. If they are getting rid of him, I hope they can bring him back as a different character. I don’t know if that would work or not. Why are they getting rid of the interesting characters?

I would respectfully disagree that Carly’s affair with Franco didn’t make sense. At the time Carly was reeling from the death of her best friend and confidante, Jason. It was also believed at the time that Franco & Jason were brothers. Carly convinced herself that being with Franco (as Jason’s brother) would bring her closer to the friend she missed so terribly. This is typical Carly. It was for this same reason that Carly was drawn to Drew Cain, not as a lover but as a friend. Even though she had inner doubts she quickly cozied up to Drew. Heck, if you go back even further one could see her first sexual encounter with Sonny was due to her relationship with Jason. Sonny was Jason’s best friend and he was hurting and in need of help and she readily obliged.

You could say much the same for Liz. She has always been prone to jump from one man to another (Zander, Ric, A.J., Jake Doe, etc.) so anyone in pants would be fair game. At the time that she & Franco started seeing each other she was in a very bad place as she had lost the person she thought was Jason (her obsession) to Sam and everyone was upset at her for keeping the truth hidden for months. She knew what it felt like to be the town pariah, as did Franco. He paid attention to her, he comforted her, and they developed a certain amount of kinship which later became love.
She had messed up so many times and everyone forgave her so she could forgive Franco for what he had done in the past. She attributed his bad acts to a brain tumor so the kidnapping of her son was a nonfactor.

Inherently good people can do some really bad and stupid things and be forgiven for them. You say you lost respect for Liz because of her association with Franco but I never had respect for her before because of her deceitful ways. This didn’t change my view of Carly because I saw it as just another of Carly’s impulsive actions that she is more prone to when she is not with Sonny.

Liz and Franco are horrid! Alas may be my Liz hate coloring my judgement. They just turned him into a goofy BORE! Waste of his talent. I highly doubt he’s going anywhere. If they are trimming I doubt it would be him. TPTB love him and he’s a huge fan favorite. They have cut two mid pay characters and there are plenty of new under used characters that can be gone never to be missed. Max Gail’s exit freed up money. Just don’t see it being RoHo.

Your post is 100% correct !
Carly to be with a man that caused that kind of pain to two of the people she loves most in the world? Never happen . Poor writing or just not understanding the Carly character at all .

As for Liz , she threw her kids under the bus for a man . Destroyed a legendary character.

Carly would do anything if she felt it made her closer to Jason. When she was hurting so much because she thought Jason was dead her being with his brother seemed perfectly natural to her. What you seem to be forgetting is that Jason is number one in Carly’s life. She loves Sonny & her children fiercely and is very protective of them but it is Jason who she consistently turns to when she needs help or advice. Carly was just as much if not more devastated than Sam was at Jason’s death. Grief can make someone do things they might not do under normal circumstances. Isn’t this the main reason Maxie is so in love with Peter? She met him while she was in the throes of grief and she did like him but she didn’t begin to fall in love with Peter until after she found out he was Nathan’s brother. She forgave him for his past and in time fell even more deeply in love with him. Would she have been so willing to forgive Peter and fall into love with him if he had not been Nathan’s brother? Does Maxie’s willingness to fall in love with a man who was partially responsible for her own husband’s death change the way viewers think of her? I would say no.

People like Carly & Maxie tend to do everything wholeheartedly. When they love somebody it is deep and when they are hurting deep inside they gravitate to what is somehow connected to the person they think they have lost.

I actually 100% agree with this! In fact Carly even implied that those reasons you mentioned are in fact why she was with Franco when she was telling Jason upon his return! He didn’t judge and said he understood why she did it! As for Maxie, Peter is basically her last link to Nathan and I for one feel she’s never truly mourned his death? I think it became easier for her to project her feelings for Nathan onto Peter rather than actually feel her feelings of grief for him!? Once the next week or so are over I believe Maxie will be truly broken for the first time since Nathan’s death and I don’t think For 1 second she’s going to carry that new baby to term? Again both of these stories were started and written by totally different writing teams and I believe Dan O’Connor has spent the last year on damage control trying to repair the history of certain characters and the show!?

Then Dan O needs to put some spunk back into the ladies because they are so watered down right now that it makes me sad.
