Dang, now this is hot.

EW obtained an exclusive first look of the you-knew-this-was-going-to-happen-sooner-rather-than-later moment when Carly (Laura Wright) and Shawn (Sean Blakemore) get up front and personal on ABC’s General Hospital. The lip lock won’t actually occur until Oct. 27, but here’s a good idea of what we can expect.

Nice touch with the tiki torch. Helps to light up the magnificent gun show, don’t you think?
