Despite being in love with Lucky Spencer (Jonathan Jackson) since she was a teenager, Elizabeth Webber also fell for mobster Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) and gave birth to his son Jake. However, she decided to make Lucky his legal father to keep him away from Jason’s dangerous way of life.
Liz also couldn’t help her attraction to his half-brother, Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher), a man who had also been a close friend since their teenage years, but nothing else. All that changed in 2009 when Elizabeth and Lucky were engaged to be married once again after he was able to accept her and Jason’s son, Jake, as his own.
That didn’t stop Elizabeth from being a support system for Nikolas when he was still grieving Emily Quartermaine (Natalia Livingston). One night, friendship turned to passion and the two characters fell into bed together. It happened just once, but then Nikolas decided he was in love for a brief period of time. When Lucky learned of the affair he was incensed and broke off their engagement.
That drove Elizabeth to have a breakdown and she nearly died of hypothermia in an abandoned church. That’s when Lucky found her and brought her to the hospital where she learned she was pregnant. A paternity test revealed Nikolas to be the father, but eventually, it was revealed that the tests were switched and Lucky was Aiden’s dad. However, the damage was already done and she and Lucky never reunited, with him eventually leaving town (via Soap Central).
