General Hospital spoilers tease that Franco (Roger Howarth) may lose everything he holds dear. He certainly fears he will lose Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) if the nasty and most likely false, secret Jim Harvey (Greg Evigan) already told Drew (Billy Miller) and Sam (Kelly Monaco) Friday, March 9 finds its ways to her ears.
Most General Hospital fans on social media seriously doubt that Elizabeth will break up with Franco just over that story alone. After all, Liz is the mother of three boys, and she knows that little boys play rough and tumble and sometimes rough each other up a bit – she also knows as a mother and certainly as a nurse, that accidents will and do happen.
Nurses do take psychology courses as part of their training, in part to be prepared in case of patients and their family members being in stressful and frightening situations, so that they can be understanding, compassionate and caring, and sometimes have the need to be calming as well, to avoid panic ensuing.
No mother of three boys is going to believe that little Bobby intentionally pushed another child down the stairs with the intent of murder, it simply does not happen! Even in studies of real-life serial killers, they simply do not start that young – the youngest on record whose history was widely publicized started killing small animals around the age of eight.
Even though in the GH episode of Friday, March 9 Liz and Franco did have a heart to heart about secrets, and came a long way in building trust of each other in each other, the fatal blow to Franco and Elizabeth’s relationship could come in the form of lack of trust. In particular, Franco not trusting himself that he was NOT a little murderer, and his not trusting Elizabeth to understand and be able to handle anything that may come up about his past.
Franco’s misguided belief that he was capable of murdering Andy, even as a tiny tot, taking away his ability to blame the tumor, may turn out to be a self-fulfilling prophecy and drive Elizabeth out of his life – not because of the long-ago mishap itself, but from his keeping secrets from her due to lack of trust.
Will love really conquer all? Will Franco and Liz live happily ever after, or go down the dark path of division and devastation? Stay tuned to the ABC soap and don’t forget to check CDL often for the latest General Hospital spoilers, updates and news.
