General Hospital had a mediocre November sweeps period. The mystery surrounding Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) has started to heat up. He returned to Port Charles cleared of all charges, and miraculously ended up with custody of his “daughter” Charlotte. There is a lot to speculate from here and as the week goes on, Lulu (Emme Rylan) becomes curious about the little blonde girl. If the rumors are correct, General Hospital fans have believed Charlotte is the “Lante” (Lulu and Dante) baby for months now.
There have been a lot of plot holes in the General Hospital writing over the last year. Fans watched as Valentin did something to Claudette (Bree Williamson), and she isn’t slated to return to the show at this point. The mystery of what happened to her was just pushed to the side, with no real answers. Now Valentin is hooking back up with Nina (Michelle Stafford), and that is going to cause ripples with Nathan (Ryan Paevey). According to We Love Soaps, General Hospital spoilers indicate that Nathan and Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) will try and get information from Valentin. This will lead to tension between Nina and her brother, making family dynamics more complicated than ever before.
The road to rebuild the once-powerful couple “Julexis” (Julian and Alexis) is happening on General Hospital right now. Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is on a downward spiral with alcohol, hitting Julian (William deVry) with her car on Thanksgiving night. She left the scene of the accident hoping that he would pull through with limited memory. He played up amnesia in the hospital when he was questioned by both Jordan (Vinessa Antoine) and Ava (Maura West). Now that he has her exactly where he wants her, things could start to be rebuilt. Julian loves Alexis despite all of his shortcomings and the attempt on her life. She is taking it hard but deep down, still loves him and likely wants things to work. This week, he is going to press Alexis to get help. She is still in denial about her alcohol problem and is refusing to get help. Julian has his hold on her, and he isn’t going to let go.
Curtis (Donnell Turner) has become a key player on General Hospital over the last month. He is working with Jason (Billy Miller) and Sam (Kelly Monaco) to find out who planted the bomb in Julian’s car. As it turns out, they will get some interesting information and compare notes. Since they know that Sonny (Maurice Benard) is innocent of planting the bomb, they are working hard to have him released from house arrest. Curtis is going to get more information from Jordan, but will it be enough to clear Sonny and find out who really “killed” Morgan (Bryan Craig)?
It is unclear what General Hospital writers have in store for Valentin Cassadine and where things are headed with Charlotte. Lulu is dead set on the fact that her embryo could have survived the blast at Crichton-Clark. There are a lot of shady things happening surrounding the little girl and who her parents are, including a birth certificate that would put her in her mid-twenties. General Hospital has always been good at planting seeds in viewer’s minds and then ripping the theory right out from under them. With the rebuilding of “Lante” though, Charlotte being their child (or at least Lulu’s baby) is highly probable.
Much of the upcoming week on General Hospital will focus on “Julexis” and what happened on Thanksgiving. When Ava finds Alexis visiting her estranged husband, she questions her. Rising suspicions are going to cause issues for the couple, especially since Curtis already is on to the fact that Julian is covering up something. General Hospital is going to get heated, and the fans can’t wait to see what is coming next!
