Valentin’s Lat­est Ploy

ABC Soaps In Depth - - We Speak Out! -

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?
