How many times can Nikolas Cassadine fall off a balcony, or get shot and fall out of a window? Seems numerous times on ABC’s General Hospital.
On Tuesday’s episode, viewers of the ABC daytime drama series this time saw a heroic side of Nikolas, who prevented a bullet from hitting his new galpal Ava Jerome (Maura West).
Instead, the dark prince grabbed a gun from his new arch-nemesis Valentin Casssadine (James Patrick Stuart) and an all-out tussle began. As the men struggled, it was Nik who got shot and then crashed through a window in what appears to be a long and fatal fall off a balcony on Cassadine Island.
According to Soap Opera Digest, (in their latest issues on newsstands this week) that fall signals the end of the short-term run for actor Nick Stabile, who did an excellent job at filling in for Daytime Emmy winner Tyler Christopher, while he was on personal leave from the show. No official word yet as to when Tyler will be back on screen inhabiting the role he made soap famous for over 20 years.
So, share your thoughts in the comment section below on Nikolas’ latest fall, and give some props to Nick Stabile for keeping Nikolas’ storyline burning bright and moving forward during his stint on GH! But first, after the jump watch the final moment’s of yesterday’s GH where Nik crashes through a window to “his death”?
