General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Franco’s (Roger Howarth) on the verge of a breakthrough. He’s been struggling to make sense of his conflicting memories, but things will become clear soon enough. Franco obviously cared about Drew (Billy Miller) when they were kids, so why would he try to harm him? Jim Harvey’s (Greg Evigan) story doesn’t add up, so Franco is understandably suspicious.
However, Franco remembers having his hand on Drew’s back. He was clearly trying to hurry Drew down the staircase. That’s why Franco’s having such a hard time with all this. He’s nearly gone off the deep end thanks to his confusion.
Fortunately, Franco’s about to get some answers. While he’s trapped with Drew, Franco will suddenly remember what actually happened. He’ll determine that he indeed pushed Drew, but you can bet it didn’t happen the way Jim said it did.
GH fans know that Jim acted like Franco was a monster. In reality, Franco was just a little kid who wanted to protect his best bud. Based on what we’ve seen so far as well as other General Hospital spoilers, it looks like Jim was coming after the boys. He was probably about to abuse them, so Franco had a good reason for rushing Drew into the basement.
It’s kind of silly for GH to make such a huge deal out of this anyway. There are plenty of three-year-old boys who played rough. Even if Franco had been trying to hurt Drew, he couldn’t have wrapped his head around the consequences at that age. That certainly wouldn’t have been an attempted murder.
Still, it’s nice to know Franco wasn’t a psycho from the start. His brain tumor really was behind his dark turn later in life. That should give Franco some peace of mind. Jim, on the other hand, is menace to society. He’s also quickly becoming GH’s most hated character.
Jim’s the reason Franco gave Drew that shove, so it seems obvious who should get the blame. It’s time for you to weigh in though. Who’s responsible for Drew’s childhood suffering? Is it Franco for giving the push or Jim for forcing him into that situation?
