Q. I know GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Elizabeth was with Lucky forever, but is he actually Cameron’s father? Coco Chance Las Vegas, NV
A: While he was actually the only father the kid has ever known, if you’re asking about Cam’s genealogy, then no, Lucky is not the boy’s father. And for the record, Lucky’s not even the first guy who signed on to raise him as such! Elizabeth’s eldest was conceived when she hooked up with Zander while on the outs with
her husband, Ric. When Liz and Ric got back together, they initially convinced Zander to sign over his parental rights. But when he later changed his mind, Ric resorted to blackmail to force the issue. It became something of a moot point, though, as Zander was shot and killed before Elizabeth even gave birth. Ric planned to raise the baby with Liz, and initially it looked promising as the couple even renewed their wedding vows. But she ended up leaving him and having Cam on her own! This was the point at which Lucky re-entered the picture and stepped in to claim the tittle Daddy. Who knows… if he had stuck around, Cam might not have that chip on his shoulder!
Q. This baby swap situation on GH is pretty low… but wasn’t Brad always a bad guy? Amaani Lane Baltimore, MD
A. Brad the cad has always been a schemer, no question about it. He infamously helped Britt steal Dante and Lulu’s embryo, pulling all kinds of shenanigans during his pal’s pregnancy and after the baby was born. Supposedly his love for Lucas helped reform him, and he even tapped in to help Finn finalize the cure for Blackwood’s syndrome. But it’s been pretty clear that he’s still held on to a bit of his selfish streak, as we saw in his reaction to Finn’s decision to donate the sale of his cure to GH — instead of making them both rich! For the record, however, while he’s clearly still scheming and making terrible decisions, we’d venture to say Nelle’s the bad guy in this particular story.
Q. When DAYS OF OUR LIVES’ Gabi was in prison recently, they mentioned that she’d been there before. I just got back to watching after a few years off, so how did she wind up behind bars the first time? Jessica L. via E-mail
A. As sometimes happens in Salem, she killed her former husband, Nick, after getting tired of his troublemaking. To be fair, he did have a bit of a chip on his shoulder, as Gabi bashed him in the head with a rock when she thought he was going to rape her and then had Kate and Sami help dump his body into the river — only for him to wake up and seemingly drown! Upon later showing up alive and well, he proceeded to blackmail Kate, E.J. and Abigail, manipulate Gabi, Will and Sonny and threaten to send the trio who left him for dead to jail. But when Gabi overheard Nick threatening Sonny, she snapped, grabbed a gun and shot him dead in Horton Square — moments after Julie had seemingly convinced him to turn over a brand new leaf!
Liz decided to choose Cameron’s father under a strict “last man standing” rule. Zander was the first one out.
Once upon a time, these two made quitethe scheme team!
Who knew repeatedly killing a man could be so traumatic?
