*AlphaBitch: Helena until her presumed demise; Ava has certainly taken Helena's position as the HBIC of Port Charles.


Added DiffLines:

*LovableAlphaBitch: Carly and Tracy; Both were mean-spirited schemers for most of their stint on GH, but over the years, they have become nicer and kinder towards people, while still retaining their ruthless and bitchy AlphaBitch qualities.

* YouLookFamiliar: Sarah Brown, Carly #1, came back as Claudia Zacchara, while Carly #4 was around.
** And, of course, any use of the BackupTwin above.
*** Due to legal issues, OLTL actors who were on GH will now be appearing as completely different characters.
*** One of which being Franco.
** John [=McBain=] and Samantha [=McCall=] had this when they first met. Their actors played vampire lovers Caleb and Livvie respectively on the spin-off series ''PortCharles''.
** Same with Maxie and Matt.

* ArtifactTitleP For a show called General Hospital, very few of the storylines are focused on Port Charles General Hospital. The first 15 or so years of the show were set almost exclusively in the hospital; however, much of the show's focus post Luke & Laura was on action/adventure and mafia storylines. As Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} points out, the spin-off ''Series/PortCharles'' initially focused on the hospital and medical-related storylines more heavily when compared to the mothership.

''General Hospital'''s ratings slouched in the mid-1970s and the show faced cancellation. It was invigorated by the beloved (but controversial) pairing of Laura Webber Baldwin and Luke Spencer, a romance infamously spawned after Luke raped Laura at the Campus Disco in 1979. The rape was [[RetCon retconned]] as a "seduction" (only to later be acknowledged as rape) and the pair became the original soap opera SuperCouple.
