    Could Valentin Cassadine be Robin Scorpio-Drake's father? image


    As reported last summer, James Patrick Stuart joined General Hospital as Valentin Cassadine, and since then he's been a man of mystery. While initially only appearing for a handful of episodes, in which he killed Prince Nikolas Cassadine in order to take over the Cassadine fortune, Stuart returned to the role of the Cassadine heir in October 2016 on a more permanent basis.

    In recent weeks Valentine married Nina Reeves, and it was revealed he and Lulu Falconeri are the parents of Charlotte Cassadine. Charlotte was created with the egg that Stavros Cassadine stole from Lulu in hopes of creating his own child with her. More recently Anna Devane has struggled with her memory and how she knows Valentin. While under hypnosis she recalled that he was at the WSB training camp while she was there on one of her birthdays. Anna has assumed he did something to her, but he recently revealed that Anna wronged Valentin in the past.

    Rumors are running rampant that Anna and Valetnin had sex on her birthday, but she quickly cast him aside because of her feelings for Robert Scorpio. Shortly after Anna became pregnant with their daughter Robin, who could possibly be Valentin's daughter. While some fans have noted an age discrepancy between the actors and characters, age is relative on soaps. Should Robin turn out to be a Cassadine it would open a whole new can of worms, but also revitalize the family line.

    Is Oscar Jessup none other than Olivia Jerome? image

    Brian Lowe/JPI

    Since the revelation that Julian Jerome is being manipulated by an unknown person calling themselves Oscar Jessup, fans have been speculating on's forums and Twitter that Oscar Jessup is actually a pseudonym for Julian's sister Olivia St. John, or Olivia Jerome. Olivia died on screen in 1990, the same year that Jason and Sam learned Oscar Jessup died. Jessup was a former henchman for the Jerome family.

    Olivia St. John came to Port Charles in 1988 and was portrayed by Tonja Walker until the character's demise. Like her half-sister Ava, she was an art dealer and part of the Jerome family crime organization. She battled with her brother Julian, then played by Jason Culp, for control of their father's organization. Julian won out in the end, but enlisted his sister Olivia in his vendetta against Duke Lavery. Olivia became infatuated with and seduced Duke, but when he rejected her for Anna Devane, she became jealous and tried to kill him. However Anna became caught up in Olivia's murderous plot and in an accident lost her and Duke's unborn child. Duke would go on to fake his death to keep himself and Anna safe, but Julian thought he returned to Port Charles with plastic surgery as Jonathan Paget. He decided to put a hit out on Paget, which Olivia attempted to thwart by warning Anna. To keep his sister from ruining his plan, Julian shot and killed Olivia in 1990. Julian was believed dead from a gunshot during a struggle with Paget, only to return in 2013 under the alias Derek Wells and played by William deVry.

    After departing "GH," Tonja Walker went on to play Marie Green on "Guiding Light," Grace Nancier on "Passions" and Alex Olanov on "One Life to Live."

    General Hospital Rumors: Casting shakeups and Nelle's secret image


    Sources are saying Nick Stabile will return to "General Hospital" as Nikolas Cassadine this November. Valentin faked his death and has him imprisoned in the same cell under Wyndemere that Anna and Robert trapped Faison in for so many years.

    As previously rumored, Steve Burton may be returning to GH. Billy Miller's Jason is said to be an impostor sent by Helena to ruin Sam's happily ever after. Steve Burton would return as the real Jason after his stint as Dylan is over on "The Young and the Restless." This would throw Sam's life into a tailspin given she's pregnant with fake-Jason's child.

    We've heard that Nelle is actually a child Carly gave up for adoption years ago. Jax knew Carly's secret, and when Joss needed a kidney transplant, sought the adoptive parents out and paid them for the kidney. Nelle found out the truth after her adoptive parents passed away and came to Port Charles to make Carly's life hell, as she blames her for everything that's gone wrong in her life.

    Nelle is rumored to be the one who actually put the bomb in Julian's car in order to wreak havoc on Carly and Sonny's marriage, and accidentally killed Morgan in the process.

    It's being said that Charlotte is actually Lulu and Stavros' child, and that Helena paid Claudette to carry the child. However Claudette ran with the baby rather than turn her over to Helena. Valentin has his own nefarious interest in the child, which is said to be a big twist nobody will see coming.

    Is Steve Burton returning to General Hospital? image

    John Paschal/JPI

    With the news that Steve Burton has chosen to leave The Young and the Restless, rumors are swirling that the actor may return to "General Hospital." The actor remains incredibly popular with fans as the original Jason Morgan. While "Y&R" fans would love to see Billy Miller, who is currently playing Jason, back as Billy Abbott, don't expect "GH" to give up such a hot property so easily.

    May fans are speculating the show could bring Burton back as the true Jason, while Miller's character would be a plant by Helena Cassadine to mess with Sam Morgan and others in Port Charles. The plot would be similar to what "Days of our Lives" did in the early 90s when Wayne Northrop returned as Roman Brady, and Drake Hogestyn, who had been playing the role, learned he had been brainwashed and a pawn of Stefano DiMera's. Hogestyn reverted back to his original character on the show, John Black, and began a twenty year quest to find his true identity.

    Others believe the plot line, which worked in the 90s on "Days," would be too similar and not accepted by fans. Some have suggested Burton would be brought on as a new character, similar to what was just done when Michael Easton returned to General Hospital as Hamilton Finn.

    Is Valentin Cassadine the father of Nathan West? image


    Only two people know who Nathan West’s real father is, and neither is talking. For years Dr. Obrecht tried to claim her true love Faison was the father of Nathan, as she knew he so badly wanted a son, but he was not the father as Maury Povich would say. She later swore that Victor Cassadine was the father, which Nathan currently believes to be the truth. However, moments before Victor’s possible death in the explosion at Crichton Labs, he confronted Obrecht with a DNA test that revealed he wasn’t the boy's father. Obrecht was too afraid to reveal who Nathan’s real father was, and only she and her sister Madeline Reeves know the truth.

    Only one villain has been truly feared by even the most heinous of villains on “General Hospital,” and that is Valentin Cassadine, the bastard son of Mikos. Helena Cassadine and Luke Spencer both mentioned in passing as to how evil this bad seed actually was. With the appearance of the mysterious Theo (James Patrick Stuart) on Cassadine Island, who many believe based on his tattoo of the Cassadine family crest on his wrist is Valentin, the mystery of Nathan’s father may no longer be a closed case. Is Valentin/Theo the true father of Nathan West? If so, what does this mean for Nikolas, Spencer and the Cassadine fortune?

    General Hospital rumor:  Does Claudette or Lulu have a child? image

    Jill Johnson/JPI

    Back in June five-year-old Jazmyn Skye Vale landed the recurring role of Athena, which has fans speculating that Claudette will be appearing in Port Charles with a daughter. We know that Nathan married Claudette to keep her in the country, but fell in love with her, and recently learned that he shot her lover, which turned out to be Griffin. Maxie is having trouble trusting Nathan again and we can’t imagine she’ll be okay if Claudette turns up with a daughter – Nathan’s daughter. Or, could Griffin be the one who’s going to receive the ‘you’re the daddy’ news?

    Other rumors indicate that the little actress will be playing Lulu and Stavros Cassadine's daughter. Stavros used one of Lulu's eggs to create an embryo, but it was frozen and never used. Helena may have had the child born via a surrogate and raised it along with Jake on Cassadine Island. Helena left a cryptic empty envelope to Lulu in her will and a book to Liz indicating she and Jake had a secret.

    After Nashville: Is Jonathan Jackson General Hospital bound? image

    Now that "Nashville" has been cancelled by NBC, where Daytime Emmy winner, Jonathan Jackson, starred as Avery Barkley, could the actor be returning to "General Hospital" in the role of Lucky Spencer that he originated back on October 29, 1993? The last time we saw Jackson was during a brief return in December of 2015 during Luke's exit storyline and Anthony Geary's retirement from daytime television. While Lucky's storyline was left open, so far we know he won't be returning for the 2016 Nurses' Ball, considering during today's General Hospital episode Lucy mentioned planning the Nurses' Ball and that unfortunately Lucky wouldn't be able to perform there this year. Would a Lucky return with Jackson taking back the role he originated work for you?

    GH's Nathan has a secret wife image

    Howard Wise/JPI

    When Maxie (Kirsten Storms) found a pair of women's gloves in Nathan's (Ryan Paevey) ten year old tuxedo, he claimed the gloves were for a society ball that his mother always made him attend, that they could be anybody's. But we're also suspecting that they could be his wife's, that Nathan has a secret wife. Anything's possible in soaps!

    Rebecca Herbst leaving General Hospital as Greg Vaughn returns? image

    There's speculation that Rebecca Herbst (Liz) will be leaving "General Hospital" due to some difficulty with contract negotiations. While the actress and the show may just need more time to come to terms with something agreeable by both parties, fans are hopeful that the actress will stick around, especially considering her storyline is still front and center.

    More conjecture...Since Greg Vaughn is leaving Days of our Lives as Eric Brady, one wonders if there is room for the actor to return to "General Hospital" as Lucky Spencer.
