General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Austin Gatlin Holt (Roger Howarth) could help Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) keep control of ELQ. Austin’s surprise shares and the reveal of a new Quartermaine could ruin Brook Lynn Quartermaine’s (Amanda Setton) plan, so let’s talk about how this might play out.
Austin is the son of Jimmy Lee Holt (Steve Bond), who was the illegitimate son of Edward Quartermaine (David Lewis).
Austin approached Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner) with the opportunity of a lifetime, so it seems like there’s money to be made – and that should start with the shares Austin’s presumably entitled to.
Of course, the timing is important since an ELQ meeting’s about to get underway, which could oust Valentin as CEO.
Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and Ned Quartermaine (Wally Kurth) are the top two candidates to replace Valentin, but neither one may end up taking back the throne.
Brook Lynn managed to secure her shares through the deal she made with Valentin, but Austin’s shares could be a game-changer. Now that Brook Lynn’s caught up in baby drama, ELQ isn’t really a huge concern of hers anymore.
Brook Lynn has much bigger problems, but she still won’t like an interloper coming in and causing trouble.
The same goes for the rest of the Quartermaine clan, but Austin indeed seems poised to be a troublemaker. Austin could swing things back in Valentin’s favor based on the shares he may soon bring to the table.
Since Austin is a doctor and just accepted a job at GH, he’s not interested in pursuing the Quartermaine CEO seat himself. However, Austin may like the idea of leaving Valentin in power.
This could serve as a way to have some control over the rest of the Quartermaines – and Valentin is doing a perfectly fine job running the show anyway.
Austin will have a solid argument for why Valentin should remain right where he is. That’s especially true if Valentin and Austin perhaps had a secret strategy session.
Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) thought she recognized Austin’s father from the photo at his house in Pautauk.
Maybe Anna spilled more on Austin’s identity off screen and set the stage for Valentin to team up with this new Quartermaine clan member.
Whatever the case, Austin will create some drama once he crashes this meeting and most likely gives Valentin the upper hand back!
