GH’s Stefan and Katherine Make Love – Finally!

Soap Opera Digest, December 9, 1997

Katherine’s serenity at Serenity is interrupted this week when Stefan arrives with a doozy of a story to tell.

“Katherine went to Serenity to get back a little piece of who she might have been before everything went wrong,” explains Mary Beth Evans.  “Stefan arrives and they have a big discussion.”

That’s putting it mildly.  Once Stefan has Katherine’s ear, he gets a chance to be honest about why he dumped her so unceremoniously.  “He tells her about Alexis’s plot to keep them apart and that Helena would have had her killed if she knew Katherine was Natasha,” Evans recounts.  “But part of her is like, ‘So what?  How could you do what you did?’ She just tells him, ‘Forget it.  You did all of these things to me, so good-bye.’”

Never one to take no for an answer, Stefan follows Kat as she retreats upstairs.  Then he really pulls out the big guns (no comments, please).  “He comes upstairs to say good-bye and says he loves her,” smiles Evans.  “She finally realizes that what she thought was gone is there in his eyes.  And that’s basically all it takes for Katherine.”

On Wednesday, December 3, the two consummate their love in a steamy scene that Evans promises won’t disappoint.  “The scene is incredibly passionate,” assures the actress.  “It was wonderfully shot. And I think fans will be very happy.  Everybody’s waited such a long time.”

Once the deed is done, Katherine agrees to return to Port Charles with Stefan.  But, alas, Kat gave up Maison Bell when she left town. Can we look forward to a little shackin’ up at Wyndemere?  “I think she’s going to be a little cautious,” demurs Evans.  “They both got caught up in the passion of the moment.  She knows she has to be careful now.”
