General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and Willow Corinthos (Katelyn MacMullen) could soon have some reasons to grow closer. GH fans know Willow and Michael already have a nice bond. They’re married friends at this point, but that could certainly change down the road.
On paper, Willow is already the perfect woman for Michael. It’s just a matter of Michael’s heart catching up with the logic of it all. Willow isn’t sure she’ll ever be able to love Michael, but who’s really buying that?
Michael is the only person Willow feels she can truly trust at this point – and trust means a lot to someone like Willow, who endured constant lies and manipulation at Dawn of Day.
What are some ways GH writers can push Michael and Willow out of the friend zone? For starters, any kind of custody win for Nelle Jerome (Chloe Lanier) should help with that.
If Nelle scores full custody or even joint, it’ll be a devastating blow for Willow and Michael. The whole point of this marriage was keeping Nelle away from Wiley Quartermaine-Corinthos (Erik and Theo Olson).
Losing to Nelle would mean Michael and Willow would have to lean on each other. Just imagine them reluctantly handing Wiley off to Nelle for her time with the tot. Willow would probably break down in Michael’s arms over something like that. She can’t stand the thought of Nelle caring for sweet Wiley.
Of course, Michael has already assured Willow that they’ll appeal the decision if things don’t go their way. That’d still mean months of playing house and hoping for the best – all while growing closer.
We’ve also got Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson) to consider. General Hospital spoilers say Sasha’s drug use may turn into an addiction, which could affect Willow and Michael’s marriage, too.
That could put Sasha at risk of an overdose and perhaps draw Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard) toward her through the crisis. Michael would struggle knowing the breakup led to Sasha’s dangerous issues, but he’d struggle even more watching Chase be the one to support her.
Likewise, Willow would be shattered if she felt like Chase was moving on and closing the door on their love story for good.
It seems likely that Michael and Willow will consummate their marriage eventually, so all this pain could push them into bed with each other. Between a Nelle victory and this Sasha-Chase saga, it could leave Willow and Michael clinging to each other like never before.
How long do you think it’ll take Michael and Willow to fall in love? Will sorrow spark passion that truly begins their new life as husband and wife? As other GH news becomes available, we’ll bring you updates.
