In this “General Hospital” spoiler, we deliver the inevitable news of Valerie Spencer’s (Brytni Sarpi) pregnancy. We all suspected it was coming, but the news will be delivered on the Tuesday August 25 episode. You have to give the new GH writers credit, they are moving a bunch of plots along fast – the Ava Jerome (Maura West) reveal, the Nina Clay (Michelle Stafford) murder photo and now this.
So we knew this was going to be happen, so there’s little surprise there – but the big question is what will be the fall out and what’s next? Let’s consider…
Dillon Quartermaine (Robert Palmer Watkins) will take credit for the baby because he suspects (or perhaps knows) that the real father is Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna). Dillon doesn’t want Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) and Dante to break up since he cares for Lulu deeply (really, too deeply). Dillon breaks the news to Lulu before she hears it from someone else.
Lulu will be devastated since she was crushing on Dillon, but will Lulu do the math on Valerie’s gestation versus the recent relationship status of Dillon and Valerie? Maybe Val will try and play it off as someone else’s baby. Nah. Dillon will take credit. Thing is, Dante will know right away that it’s his baby but that puts him in a tough spot.
Dante will want his child, but doesn’t want to ruin his marriage with Lulu. Dante can’t have both but there’s no way he’s going to let Dillon raise his child – particularly when Dante grew up without his dad. Dante will turn to Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) for advice and Sonny’s advice is to come clean. Dante will confront Valerie about the pregnancy but won’t admit to Lulu what he’s done.
Lulu already has feelings for Dillon – so once she finds out that Dante knocked up cousin Valerie, Lulu will fall into Dillon’s arms. Here’s where things could get interesting. We know that Lulu has struggled with infertility, but she had surgery a while back so that she could carry a child. Wouldn’t it be crazy if Lulu got pregnant by Dillon? She has no reason to use protection and isn’t on birth control…
What a wild ride if Dillon and Valerie break up, Lulu and Dante break up and they do a swap. Maybe they can all just move in together at the Q mansion in some weird polyamorous mess. How long will Dillon and Valerie be able to carry on the masquerade that the baby is Dillon’s? Will Dante come clean sooner rather than later so he doesn’t miss a moment with his son?
Really, Dante and Lulu are pretty boring so it’s kind of intriguing that their relationship would implode. And just because Dante gets dumped by Lulu doesn’t mean that Valerie will take up with him. Valerie does love Dante but he’s told her several times that being with her was a mistake, so she may not take him on. Val is also concerned with preserving her relationship with Lulu if it all possible.
Another factor at play here is Nathan West (Ryan Paevey) and Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms). Nathan knows that Dante cheated so he’ll know that the baby is Dante’s. Will Nathan tell Maxie about Dante cheating with Val? And Maxie always has suspected that Val had a thing for Dante so she will also suspect right away that the baby is Dante’s and will whisper in Lulu’s ear.
What do you think the fallout will be from Valerie’s pregnancy? Do you think Dillon can sell himself as the father? Will Lulu buy any of this or will she know immediately the baby is Dante’s? Share your thoughts in the comments!
