Strange bedfellows? That may have been the case on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, after Nina (Michelle Stafford) meets and ends up in the throes of passion with none other than the villainess Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart)!
After Nina has a very bad evening where she learns her ex Franco (Roger Howarth) is hanging out with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), she heads to her hotel room where she drops her key and the stranger who happens to be there at the correct time is revealed to be Valentin. After the two have an immediate attraction and play a game of seduction, the two hit the sheets. But, what will be the fallout of their tryst?
Later, Valentin gets out of bed and reveals he has Nikolas’ cell phone. On it are several calls from Spencer (Nicolas Bechel) trying to reach his father while away at summer acting camp. Valentin listens to the messages and gleefully and obviously has more plans in store. What will happen when little Spencer learns his father is “dead”?
Elsewhere, Jason (Billy Miller) returns to the Cassadine stowaway crew alive and well following the plane crash. The group spots a naval patrol boat and are going to be saved. Lulu (Emme Rylan) has told Laura (Genie Francis) she found what she believes could be Luke’s bracelet on a skeleton on the Island. Laura does not know if this is a trick by Helena, or it could be the truth.
However, when it’s time for Laura to get on the boat to leave Cassadine Island, she breaks down in her daughter’s arm trying to cope with leaving her beloved son Nikolas behind and to have to say goodbye to him forever. She also takes a moment to thank Jason and apologize for what Nikolas did to him, and say that her son was not the same man the last year, but he was a good man at heart. Will Laura continue in her sorrow over the loss of Nikolas, and will her once fragile sanity begin to crack?
