General Hospital (GH) spoilers reveal that Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) is already moving past Sasha Gilmore’s (Sofia Mattsson) deception. She recently came clean about being Nina Reeves’ (Cynthia Watros) fake daughter, which brought some interesting info. It revealed a bit more about GH’s plans for Sasha and their plans for Michael’s love life.
Sasha explained that she needed money to cover her sick grandmother’s medical expenses. Valentin Cassadine’s (James Patrick Stuart) opportunity dropped into her lap, and she was desperate enough to take advantage of it. After Sasha’s grandma died anyway, she had no family. Sasha felt more drawn to Nina as a result, and things snowballed from there.
Thanks to all the lies Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier) told, Michael was understandably upset and wary of trusting Sasha. Nelle had a sob story of her own, but this really is a different situation. General Hospital fans will recall that Nelle was out for revenge. Sasha was simply trying to help an ill family member at first. Later, she was just lonely and looking for love.
Furthermore, Sasha’s deception now is primarily about protecting Nina’s heart. She’s shown that she genuinely cares about other people, which is more than can be said for Nelle. There’s also the matter of Sasha nearly dying because of the daughter lie, which is why Cassandra Pierce (Jessica Tuck) targeted her. Shouldn’t that be punishment enough?
Now that Michael’s cooled down, he intends to help Sasha handle this tricky Nina dilemma. However, there’ll be one more obstacle to conquer in their relationship. Mama Bear Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) isn’t going to be thrilled over Sasha’s big secret. That secret may be in Michael’s hands now, but it could eventually become public knowledge. The fake daughter bomb will inevitably reach Carly sooner or later.
That could make Sasha a bit of a town pariah, which would honestly make Michael even more drawn to her. He hates to see someone suffer, especially if he thinks there’s a kind heart underneath all the mistakes. Too bad Carly may not agree! She could easily see Sasha as just another lying con artist like Nelle. Carly may confront Sasha down the road and push her to get out of Michael’s life for good.
Will this bring some serious conflict? Will Michael have to stand his ground against his meddling mother? Michael is free to make his own choices when it comes to who he dates. Carly may not like those choices, but Michael’s a grown man. If he wants to be with Sasha, Carly will have to respect that.
General Hospital spoilers say the show could get some great drama out of this. One thing’s for sure: They’ve done their best to make Sasha sympathetic and completely redeemable. She seems to have some staying power on GH.
