Monday’s episode of General Hospital revealed to those held hostage on Cassadine Island that “Theo” is actually the devious Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart).
As Nikolas (Nick Stabile), Ava (Maura West), Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), Lulu (Emme Rylan), Laura (Genie Francis), and Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) are all together in the main room, Jason (Billy Miller) and Sam (Kelly Monaco) are forced into another room with Jason handcuffed to a chair. Everyone now is aware that they are in imminent danger and with someone who is a major threat. After “Theo” utters some words in Greek, Nikolas translates and informs the others that “Theo’s” henchmen have orders to shoot anyone that moves except for him!
Jason tells Sam that he remembers being on Cassadine Island before, and there must be a reason that he singled out Jason to handcuff other than “Theo’s” explanation of wrong place at the wrong time. Did “Theo” know Jason from when he was on the island with Helena?
Later in front of those in the main room, “Theo” rolls up his sleeve, and he shows the tattoo on his arm of the Cassadine Crest. Nikolas is beginning to figure out just who the guy is, but not before “Theo” tries to get everyone to believe that he is in cahoots with Nikolas. Laura thinks the guy was the person behind sending her a photo of the Ice Princess. After Lulu says, “Who is he?” Nikolas answers: “He’s my grandfather’s bastard son. Mikkos dishoned him years ago and no one ever knew what became of him.” A gloating “Theo” confirms what Nikolas said with: “That’s right. I’m your bastard Uncle, Valentin Cassadine!” The hostages are stunned.
