He has been missed.

Very glad he is back !

0ooh good1 so- I won’t have him on my screen for uuumm 4 weeks?
I can hope now that Victor is back that Valentin will be the one
that Helena feared—
Valentin hasn’t even represented a true Cassadine-
He has been written as a cuddly teddy bear and not
as the most feared of them all.

Ahha! remember when Valentin 1st entered GH?
He was portrayed as a 1940’s villian-
dark black hair and mustache dressed in black
and evil menacing-looking-
but quickly turned into meek and mild teddy bear– lol

I remember first seeing Valentine on Cassadine Island. Gosh, he looked so violent, almost like a pirate.All the fighting with everyone, culminating with Valentine tossing Nicolas out the window, supposedly killing him. Those were fun times, huh?

Hi Violet 🙂
I know!!! I was excited to have an evil Cassadine back to
give me chills and thrills-
but that lasted about 30 days LOL
Writers did a 180 and turned Valentin into a wimpy Cassadine.
Now that Victor daddy is back- hopefully Valentin will
become the one Hellena feard or at least a true Cassadine–
(( stay well !)

Su000, I really didnt even notice Valentin’s absence! Victor IS a true, evil Cassidine! Valentin was supposed to be the worst of the worst Cassadines! I fear Epiphany more than I would ever fear Valentin. He is a bust! A wussy!

Hi Timmm-
It’s been a while 🙂
We were riped-off!
We were excited to have the most feared Cassidine on screen-
And were given a powderpuff pppfffttt!
I do hope that Victor and Valentin will give us some chills and thrills!
ooh shouldn’t Valentin be getting the Cassidine estate back?????
yes! Epiphany could take both Victor and Valentin down, no problem!!!
The writers need to wake up and give us some hardcore drama!
Take care be well 🙂

I’m glad he’s returning. There are several stories that could benefit from his superior sarcasm. And the battle with Victor Cassadine already needs resuscitation.

I never cared for he and Nina’s relationship, but like he and Anna together. Iam not crazy about the older Charlotte. She sure isn’t as bratty as the original.

Yes, no one can deliver such sarcasm as he does in such soft, sexy tones, and then be such a bastard. He’s really talented. No wonder Su likes him so much.

yes, he’s the man! I Remember not liking the character, all that changed I don’t Remember when, but he’s top dog in my book, love his pairing w/ Anna, glad he’s still a Cassadine, love his brotherly w/ Alexis, he’s just so cool, both a bad boy and good guy, take him any day over Sonny and Jason that’s for sure.

So do I , Aria! I agree with almost everything except: I liked him from the beginning , and I don’t like his pairing with Anna.

Agreed, Boop. Anna isn’t lucking out with anyone. I would love for Valentin to get back with Nina and kill this fascination with Sonny/Mike—-so sick of this continuous agony.
Looks like my guess that Willow is Nina’s ( possibly Nelle’s twin) may be true?
Willow fainted—so, she may have a blood disorder and is in need of blood ; asap—–a rare blood type, that is—-Enter Nina!!

Celia, my dear, you hit it right. I couldn’t figure out the point of Willow’s nose dive… figured it would expose Harmony. But Nina being the savior makes good sense. Oh this Sonny nonsense. Now he’s added “sudden screaming” to his acting repertoire, eh? Wow! Start engraving that Emmy. Can’t think of any other reason for this up and down silliness. Remember just a few years back when we could gaze upon Billy M.’s blue eyes, blonde hair, and deep seductive voice? Other than Chase, the only thing seducing me these days is the fast forward button.

Right there with you, Soaphound. Let’s get off the Sonny kick, for the love of Mike–LOL.—it is absolutely confounding to me—what compels the writers to put Sonny on such a pedestal. He is so passed his prime to be entangled in a “love triangle”—please!! Then, along comes the virago, Carly.
Nina is passive compared to that shrew—not that Nina is submissive, but going mano a mano or faccia a faccia with Carly is like “Jumping Into The Fire”— great Nilsson song, BTW. LOL
Billy, oh, my Billy—-Look who took his place. Makes me want to cry!!

OK, if you had a choice, who would you pick for Valentin? There aren’t many choices now. I can’t really see him romancing any of those GH ladies. Anyone care to chime in here?

wonderful news

Val the Bastard seems a little less like a bastard these days, but I’m guessing now that he’s back in town, he’s going to end up in the middle of whatever agenda his daddy Victor is up to. If they wanted to get all really soapy with the writing, they could always have him be the one who discovers who Esme’s parents are, which would of course lead to Val having a reconciliation of some sorts with his relatives Nikolas & Spencer.

Hell, maybe he’ll even take Nina back and keep her away from Sonny & his family. At least Nina functioned as a mostly rational human being when she was with Val.

the “prize” for – SEXUAL – frequency… senses whet , arousal ON

dag! Mr. James Patrick Stuart, is doing IT… keeps @General Hospital ALIVE

ARGH… just knowing that @Finola Hughes made it out of the stink on shit pairing w/Wes Ramsey and Michael Easton… WOW , now that the stench is clearing… Valentin is.

General Hospital Pays Tribute to Tyler Christopher at End of Episode, ABC Exec Nathan Varni Shares: “You’ll Always Be In Our Hearts”

If you caught the end of the Monday, November 27th Thanksgiving episode of General Hospital, the ABC daytime drama ended the show with a special dedication to Tyler Christopher (ex-Nikolas Cassadine), who passed away on October 31st at the age of 50.

With a very touching title card, and a photo of Tyler from his younger days as the dark prince of the Cassadine clan, it read, “In Loving Memory of Tyler Christopher.”

On Tuesday, November 28th, ABC Current Series executive, Nathan Varni, who oversees Grey’s Anatomy, The Conners, Station 19 and General Hospital for the network, shared on X some additional thoughts on Tyler’s contributions to the GH family.

Varni expressed: “This lovely tribute card was shown at the end of yesterday’s episode of GH In loving memory of Tyler Christopher. Thanks for bringing Nikolas Cassadine to life on our screens, you’ll always be in our hearts. RIP.”

Tyler played the role of GH’s Nikolas from 1996–1999, 2003–2011, and lastly from 2013–2016. He also took on the role of Connor Bishop from 2004–2005. The late actor took home the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series in 2016 for his work as Nikolas.

GH’s Scarlett Fernandez on Charlotte’s Mindset: “She Completely Believes That Anna is Out to Get Her”

Once returning to General Hospital, Scarlett Fernandez (Charlotte) has been involved in a juicy storyline, where an impressionable young Charlotte Cassadine has been persuaded almost brain-washed, if you will, via a letter from Victor Cassadine from the grave.

In it, he implores Charlotte to keep Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) away from her father, Valentin (James Patrick Stuart). So, taking that to heart, Charlotte burned Anna’s house down and much more.  When she gets shot by Anna after intruding into the super spy’s apartment, the stakes get even higher.

Valenin had figured out that Charlotte was stalking Anna and trying to do her harm, but did not inform Anna. That has caused a major rift in their relationship.  Meanwhile, Laura (Genie Francis) and Valentin confronted Charlotte after she returned home from the hospital.

Photo: ABC

In her latest interview with Soap Opera Digest, Fernandez shared on getting to play this kind of story: “It’s definitely an honor because when I was little, I was getting storylines, but this is just crazy! I kind of feel like I’m treated like an adult on the show now, almost, and it’s just been great. I’ve been given great stuff and the fact that Frank (Valentini, EP, GH) and all of his co-workers have trusted me has just been an amazing feeling.”

With everyone confronting Charlotte on her dirty deeds against Anna, and her denying it, Fernandez weighs-in on just where Charlotte is at this point in her mind: “I think that she definitely realizes that the people around her don’t believe her and don’t trust her and I think that really frustrates her because she completely believes that Anna is out to get her. So that (the adults in her life don’t believe her) is hard for her.”

Photo: ABC

There is also burgeoning chemistry between Jake (Hudson West) and Charlotte! So what does Fernandez think of that? Is she using him, or could be the beginning of young love? She expressed: “I think it’s definitely a little bit of both. I think that maybe she and Jake are partners-in-crime, but I also think that Jake has or will have a good influence on her. She just really needs someone to be there for her and for her to be able to confide in and I think that he has been that.”

So, have you been enjoying Scarlett’s performances as a troubled Charlotte? Would you like to see Jake and Charlotte have a ‘date’? Do you think Charlotte needs deprogramming to help her out of the grip that Victor has on her; as she believes Anna is the cause of all the trouble that will come her father’s way, if she doesn’t find a way to get rid of her? Weigh-in via the comment section below.
