    HELENA CASSADINE'S HISTORY

    Helena Cassadine entered the story as a villainess and quickly became the resident 'evil' person, visiting sporadically to put everyone on edge at the mention of her name. Her first act of unkindness was the spell she placed on Luke and Laura for foiling her plot to freeze the world. She spoke the damning words and then disappeared.

    Her main concern has always been the Cassadine fortune and her need to control it. Her grandson, Nikolas is the heir and the object of her affection. Helena has gone to great lengths to maintain control over him and the money. She has never liked Emily, and has taken great strides to remove her from her grandson's life. Unfortunately, one of Helena's attempts almost ended in her own demise, when Nikolas pushed her off a cliff. The woman is seemingly invincible and continues to defy death. Her nemesis is Luke Spencer, and the two have locked horns on many occasions.

    Helena never relents, using whatever method necessary to get her way. Murdering Alexis' mother, kidnapping Michael Corinthos, plotting to get rid of Nikolas' parents, Stefan and Laura, brainwashing Lucky, and finally hiring an unscrupulous nanny for Nikolas' child are just a few of her demented acts. Even insane asylums can't hold her. She lurks in the shadows and always knows everyone's dirty secrets, then uses them to her own advantage.

    Despite the belief that she was safely tucked away in yet another mental facility, Helena made an appearance at Luke and Laura's remarriage in 1996. One of Laura's last moments before returning to her catatonic state was spent face-to-face with the evil Helena Cassadine as she hexed their joining, once again. Who knows what the vengeful woman will do next.

He steals his victim's gun before using the man's thumb to open the electronic lock. Inside he shoots a guard and calls for Jerry Jacks. Helena Cassadine walks in asking Luke if he thinks Jerry Jack can fill her shoes. He thinks he's hallucinating – he killed that 'bitch'. She agrees and asks 'if I'm dead, what does that make you'? She promises he'll be dead soon enough unless he bargains with her. He needs to die to keep from dying or be her slave…she won't take no for an answer.

Luke asks if Lulu has been frozen. Stavros replies, "It is as I said. I am her prince and she is my ice princess." Stavros talks about Lulu's stubbornness to submit to the life he was planning for her. Due to her hot-bloodedness, he had to cool her down. Laura softly speaks to Stavros pleading that if he ever loved her to take her to Lulu. Alarms go off. Stavros yells, "My ice princess," and runs off. Alarms are blaring as Stavros demands Dante stay away from her. He's in the middle of telling Dante he will regret something when Luke knocks him out. Laura rushes to the door and calls Lulu's name. Luke and Dante drag Stavros to the security panel and scan his thumb. The door opens and they rush inside. Laura is worried about the temperature and Luke covers Lulu with his coat. Stavros comes to. Luke holds him at gunpoint until they can leave the ice chamber. They lock Stavros in the chamber as he yells, "She's my ice princess!" Dante lays her on a table across from Helena. He tells Lulu she is not going to die as they try to warm her. Laura pleads for Lulu to breathe. Dante apologizes for not saving Lulu and holds her. Luke and Laura scream back at Stavros that he killed Lulu. Luke tells Laura not to stop him, but she activates the cryo-chamber herself with Stavros inside.
