Nina Fears The Worst!
This week, GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Nina awaits the phone call that could make all of her dreams come true. But what if instead, connecting with the daughter she never knew turns into a total nightmare?
The In Depth Story: Coheadwriter Shelly Altman may be understating when she previews that, while waiting for Sasha to call, Nina is “wild with anticipation and yet, at the same time, terrified!”
“This is something she’s wanted for so long,” adds co-headwriter Chris Van Etten, “and all the signs indicate that Sasha really is her daughter. But Nina can hardly believe it!”
Which raises the very valid question of whether or not Sasha — who has been skeptical since the moment she was approached by Curtis — will accept this twist. “Sasha is the wild card,” previews Altman, adding that Nina will have to be careful not to come on too strong. “But can Nina do that? Is that within her capacity, given how huge this is?”
Meanwhile, Valentin will find himself hoping that his role in the reunion will score him a few points with estranged wife Nina. “Even if she is incapable of actually forgiving him,” says Altman, “she might at least appreciate what he’s done.”
Finally, Van Etten says that as Nina and her supposed daughter find their way forward, “the newcomer’s presence in Port Charles will have an impact on the lives of several local residents!”
Nina may need the support of gal pal/employee Maxie more than ever in the days ahead!
Before meeting Curtis, Sasha thought she knew who she was. Now, her entire life has been turned upside-down!
