OVER DUO: A.J. Quartermaine and Elizabeth Webber
ROMANCE REPORT: Elizabeth was in an unusually long stretch of single-dom and heartbroken over Jason’s recent presumed death when, in 2012, Jason’s older brother, A.J., made a triumphant return from the grave after a seven-year absence. In December, when A.J. sustained injuries tussling with Sonny, Liz tended to him at G.H. and they found common, Jason-related ground. Early the next year, Liz helped A.J. cope with his panic attacks, and after they shared a platonic Valentine’s Day dinner together, he got up the courage to ask her out on a proper date. On the big night, however, Liz spotted A.J. making out with Carly. Eventually,
Liz found out that Carly had forced him into helping her make Todd think she’d taken a new lover, and all was forgiven. Their new romance hit another snag when A.J. actually did sleep with Carly, and Nikolas tried to rekindle his affair with Liz, but they worked through it and became lovers. When A.J. was ousted as ELQ’S CEO, however, he fell off the wagon, and Liz broke up with him.
