Oblivious to poor Cameron pining away for her in the friend zone, GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Josslyn made a move on Dev. Could Oscar’s grief-stricken girlfriend at last be ready to roll the dice and risk her heart? And if so, with whom? After months of mourning Oscar, Josslyn finally put herself out there and planted a kiss on Dev — only to be turned down. “He’s new and exciting and from an exotic foreign country, so he’s intriguing for Joss,” portrayer Eden McCoy contended to Soaps In Depth. “He also doesn’t come from wealth yet seems very worldly to her, and I think she’s drawn to how ‘street-smart’ he is. Dev could be really good for Josslyn, given that he obviously cares about her, he’s overcome adversity in his life, and he’s a survivor.”
But while McCoy suspects Dev and Joss could work as a couple, we still don’t know much about the Turkish pickpocket that Sonny’s taken into the family. “Carly, Sonny, and Jax would say ‘Definitely not!’ to this pairing,” chuckled the actress. “I think they would have doubts about what kind of an influence Dev would be on Joss.” And Dev just might agree with the grown-ups, as the orphan claimed to refuse Josslyn’s kiss out of respect for all that her parents have done for him.
Whatever his reasoning, the slight caused a mortified Joss to recede even further into her journal — and continue to completely miss Cameron’s smitten glances! “Cam is home for Joss,” said McCoy. “He’s the one who has always been there, she knows everything about him, and she feels safe with him. They are there to pick each other up from the messes that their families create. I don’t think that will ever change. They’ll always be best friends.”
But as we all know, that’s not at all how Cam has begun to see his beautiful childhood pal — and he may even have a chance with her, if he can work on his timing! “Joss was just beginning to feel more than friendship for Cam when she found out Oscar was terminally ill,” reminded McCoy, referring to the period when they were fake-dating. “So feelings were interrupted before she could even figure them out. I think Cam can definitely get out of the friend zone once something wakes Josslyn up to her own feelings about him.”
Joss may not be having any fun with this triangle, but McCoy sure is. “I really like it!” enthuses the high-schooler. “It’s a really interesting dynamic, and everybody has a different relationship.”
