I’ve been noticing for months that there’s been this good chemistry going on between One Life To Live‘s John McBain and Blair Cramer.
And now that they’re finally together, I’m liking what I’m seeing.
Now I don’t really know where this will go or how long it will last.
Let’s face it.
The two are…..well…..complicated at best.
They don’t have the best track records at relationships.
How many times has Blair (Kassie DePaiva) married Todd?
I think even the best OLTL statistician has lost count.
And John?
There was Natalie, which didn’t work out – twice.
Then Evangeline.
Then Marty.
Although, she doesn’t really count as a failed relationship because she died….although, not really, because we now know she is alive, but HE doesn’t know that……..yet.
The major theme in John’s doomed relationships is his failure to communicate his feelings….
And his demons.
Demons like the death of his fiancee, Caitlin, and the death of his father.
But I think he may have rid himself of those demons.
Which may have cleared the way for Blair.
Blair and John

I like them together.
And this is why.
Blair brings out the lighter side of John McBain, wearer of all things black.

How about that yellow Hawaiian shirt with Tucans on it?
Too Funny!
Only Blair could get him to put on that shirt.
And John?
Well, he’s been my favorite since he came to Llanview.
I just love the brooding, do-the-right-thing, Detective McBain.
And what I like about him is much more than those big blue bedroom eyes and his gorgeous good looks.
It’s his honesty, integrity and loyalty…..qualities that are rare and wonderful in this day and age.
I love the fact that amidst the chaos of Llanview, John McBain (Michael Easton) is the one constant you can count on when the chips are down.
And I’m wondering.
What’s going to happen when he finally finds out that Todd has deceived everyone and that Marty is alive?

    I’m liking John with Blair too. Unlike you, I’ve never been a fan of John, but I do like this version of him. Hope he keeps up with the lighter side when he and Blair end, as we know they will.

    Hi, Michele and Sally.
    I’m really enjoying John and Blair, too. Of course, I’m a big fan of both actors. (Particularly Kassie DePaiva who has a knack for making me feel for Blair even when she’s not very loveable. LOL) I love the strength of these two characters individually, and I think that makes them all the more solid as a couple.
    But we’ll see. Todd and Blair usually find their way back to each other, although this Marty thing is a definite wild card.
