General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) has been on edge lately all because of her evil twin, Alex Devane Marick (Finola Hughes).
As GH viewers know, Anna nearly got lured overseas by Alex to meet, but fortunately she decided not to go, and it’s a good thing. As Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) later discovered, the whole thing was a trap designed to get Anna vulnerable so she could be killed.
Alex wants Anna dead, and Alex is probably not going to stop trying to complete that mission.
We do have to wonder, though, exactly what Alex’s endgame here is. Aside from just being Alex and being evil to the core, why would she want to kill Anna all of the sudden?
Anna seems to think that it has something to do with Peter August (Wes Ramsey) and the fact that Alex is almost certainly Peter’s actual mom. But what would Alex really gain by killing Anna?
Alex certainly wouldn’t gain a relationship with Peter if she outright murdered the woman that he believes to be his mother, so what’s really going on here?
Well, there is the possibility that Alex wants something very precious that Anna has…her life. In other words, what if Alex is looking to assume Anna’s identity and live the rest of her days as Anna Devane?
That certainly sounds like an “Alex” thing to do, and it would actually make some degree of sense in this situation.
After all, Alex is on the run, and she’s probably getting tired of being a fugitive. Plus, assuming that Alex really is Peter’s mother, she’d get the opportunity to be with Peter, without having to go through the whole rigmarole of him knowing that she’s Alex and that Alex is his real bio mom.
Alex probably realizes that there’s a good chance that Peter would reject him, so if she were to assume Anna’s identify, then that would avoid that problem.
Who knows – Alex could have great plans for herself and Peter. Alex might embrace the evil/dark side of Peter, and she might fantasize about becoming a great mother/son crime team someday.
Of course, Alex might have to temper that desire since she’ll need to pretend to be Anna in order to make her existence work, but she might be planning on eventually telling Peter the truth about herself, hoping that he’ll ultimately accept her and go along with the ruse.
It should be interesting to see what develops on GH regarding Alex and her ultimate plan, but we’d say that the idea of assuming Anna’s identity probably isn’t that far-fetched, considering that this is Alex we’re talking about.
After all, she might be tired of living on the run and one sure-fire way to get some peace and stability would be to assume Anna’s identity and her life.
