General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Nikolas Cassadine’s (Marcus Coloma) efforts to help Elizabeth Baldwin (Rebecca Herbst) could land him in grave danger. GH writers have delivered a real pressure-cooker situation that’s destined to blow.
Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth) has several targets on his back thanks to the rapidly spreading news of his brain tumor’s return – as evidenced by Alexis Davis’ (Nancy Lee Grahn) bold attempt to kill him!
Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) swooped in and saved Franco from Alexis’ syringe, but she’s not the only threat to worry about.
Peter August (Wes Ramsey) certainly remains a threat to Franco, but it’s the murder pact Franco and Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) made that Liz is concerned about.
In fact, Elizabeth delivered a desperate plea that really seemed to affect Nikolas. He flashed back to it later while deep in thought at the boxing gym.
“Franco told Jason that if there’s any signs that he’s reverting to form, to kill him,” a deeply worried Elizabeth said. “Jason doesn’t need a reason to hurt Franco, so please…Nikolas, I’m begging you. Don’t let that happen. Don’t let Jason take Franco away from me.”
Based on how Nikolas looked after that flashback, the show suggested that he does intend to help Liz. Naturally, taking on Jason Morgan is quite a challenge – even for a Cassadine who’s been known to have a ruthless streak. Jason could chew Nikolas up and eat him for breakfast.
Even so, Nikolas is the kind of guy whose bark is worse than his bite. He’s like a little puppy who thinks he’s a big dog! Of course, we also have to acknowledge Nikolas’ current storyline with Ava Jerome Cassadine (Maura West).
Nikolas popped the question and asked Ava to marry him for real, so things couldn’t be better for “Nava” right now. That’s exactly when soaps tend to deliver an obstacle.
Nikolas seems poised to go up against Jason in some way. We know that Franco will disappear in the coming weeks, so Nikolas may blame Jason and start a fierce war. Even if Jason has nothing to do with Franco’s disappearance, Nikolas will be ready to battle for Liz’s sake.
However, GH writers could deliver a far worse outcome once Franco resurfaces. General Hospital has set the stage for a showdown between Franco and Jason at some point. They’ve laid the groundwork for Jason to see warning signs, even if Peter’s perhaps manufacturing them.
Now that Elizabeth has made this plea for Nikolas to stop Jason, Nik could insert himself into some deadly drama. Will Nikolas get shot or face some other terrible danger?
Will Ava freak out over her injured husband and hold Elizabeth responsible? These are good options to consider since Liz’s words to Nikolas somehow felt so ominous.
