Valentin’s Latest Ploy
Look, we weren’t surprised to learn that GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Sasha is a total fake. Heck, the more they talked about the fact that her maternity had been confirmed by not one but two DNA tests, the more we knew it was a scam. But we were really hoping someone — anyone — other than Valentin was responsible. Ever since that infamous showdown with Nikolas in Greece, Val’s continued to do shady things, but we’ve also felt his remorse and empathized with his abandonment issues. And we’ve genuinely rooted for Nina to for- give his transgressions and take him back, given how perfect a couple they make. This latest act, however, is perhaps his cruelest. Yes, killing Nikolas was awful, but in doing that, Valentin wasn’t hurting anyone he actually cared about. But to do something so awful — no matter how good his intentions — to a woman he claims to love with all his heart is inexplicable and unforgivable. Valentin may rationalize that he’s doing the wrong thing for the right reasons, but if we can’t see it that way, how is Nina supposed to?
