General Hospital has a host of interesting and intriguing characters, and an equal host of storylines that we hope come out of the shadows and go the distance!
Some Answers for Jake
Finally, GH fans can breathe a sigh of relief now that the back story to Jake’s (Hudson West) time on Cassadine Island is off the backburner and up and running. Soon, we will see what really went down on the island and what’s been affecting the young boy, thanks to a combined effort from Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Jason (Billy Miller) and Franco (Roger Howarth).
There are other GH storylines that have been put on hold that would be exciting, to say the least, if they came to the forefront again eventually. The following come to mind!
A Mysterious Letter Unopened
It was almost two years ago that Luke Spencer (Tony Geary) walked off the Port Charles docks for the last time. However, his one last task was to give his daughter Lulu (Emme Rylan) an envelope marked “Angel,” meant for his beloved ex-wife and Lulu’s mom, Laura (Genie Francis). Laura didn’t divulge the contents of the letter.
Now that Laura’s off to Turkey with Tracy (Jane Elliot) to track down the mysterious painting Tracy’s father supposedly left her, how fun would it be for Laura to open the letter on the jaunt, have it reveal something shocking that coincides with even a brief Tony Geary return for the gals’ adventure? C’mon, Laura! Open that letter and let us in on the contents!
Secrets Lurking, Waiting to Explode
And that brings us to another shelved storyline, this one involving Dr. Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) and Nina (Michelle Stafford). There was a time not so long ago when Dr. O confronted Nina and mentioned that she knew quite a few secrets about her. Many fans took this to mean that the oft-repeated rumors that Kiki (Haley Erin) was really her daughter with Silas (ex-Michael Easton) and not Ava’s (Maura West) were true. It’s still speculation, as the show hasn’t yet addressed what Nina’s “secrets” are, or if Obrecht was bluffing. Speaking of the obstreperous Dr. O, what happened to the question of who her son Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) father is? Well, Obrecht killed Victor Cassadine (ex-Thaao Penghlis). whose DNA test proved he wasn’t the daddy, a fact Nathan is blissfully unaware of. Obrecht wants to keep it that way, as she told Victor before his death, “Nathan must believe you are his father, because the truth is far, far worse.” There has been speculation that dear old dad could be Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart). Now that Val’s on the canvas, that certainly would be a bombshell story to introduce.
One Last Thing…
Speaking of Valentin, a recent twist that had viewers intrigued was his bankrolling of scheming Olivia Jerome’s (Tonja Walker) legal defense. Wouldn’t we love to know their connection and how it plays out!
