General Hospital Spoilers: Monday, January 16 Update – Spencer’s Custody Fight – Willow’s Mom Bomb – Nina’s ASAP Test

General Hospital (GH) spoilers update for Monday, January 16, teases that Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Chavez) will summon Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) and announce that he wants custody of Esme Prince’s (Avery Pohl) baby. Diane will get this big news along with updates on the rest of Spencer’s plans, so let’s talk about what’s in store.

Spencer won’t want this child to be at the mercy of Esme and Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma) since they’re about the worst possible parents in his opinion.

Of course, this explains why Spencer lied and told Esme he was potentially the father of her baby.

Spencer was laying the groundwork for a custody battle – though he might need Victor Cassadine’s (Charles Shaughnessy) help down the line.

Victor could always pay to have a DNA test altered or sway a judge, so Spencer should keep that in mind.

Meanwhile, let’s talk about a different DNA test since Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros) knows Carly Spencer (Laura Wright) ran one.

Carly finally convinced Nina that Willow Tait (Katelyn MacMullen) was her daughter, so now Nina has to convince Willow of that, too.

Willow won’t want to believe it initially, but Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) will insist Nina’s being honest about this.

Michael may admit to hearing the story from Drew Cain (Cameron Mathison) and make Willow realize Nina’s version of events is accurate.

Naturally, the idea of Nina – the woman Willow loathes to the core – being her biological mother will be a lot to take in.

Willow still won’t want anything to do with her, but Nina will think the focus has to be the bone marrow transplant.

Saving Willow’s life is all Nina will care about, so she’ll race to the lab and have her blood drawn for some ASAP testing.

If all goes well, Nina will soon learn she’s a match and can save Willow from a grim fate.

Next, Carly will deal with guilt for keeping this secret for so long, especially since she inadvertently put Willow’s life at risk.

Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) will eventually learn Carly hid another bio daughter from Nina, so he’ll hit the roof.

In Esme’s own hospital room, it appears she’ll interact with Laura Collins (Genie Francis).

Although Laura knows Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) seems to believe Esme’s amnesia claims, she’ll have to make her own decision on whether that’s true.

At some point, General Hospital spoilers say Esme will cry out in pain, so will she go into labor or face a false alarm?

Either way, Esme will be stressed to the max over her bun in the oven.

Over with Nikolas and Elizabeth Baldwin (Rebecca Herbst), they’ll secretly discuss this Esme mess and try to prepare for what’s next.

Liz is hoping Esme won’t remember anything more, but she knows there’s a good chance it’ll all come flooding back sooner or later.

Other GH spoilers say Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner) will urge Portia Robinson (Brook Kerr) not to be too controlling when it comes to Trina Robinson (Tabyana Ali).

The harder Portia tries to fight Trina and Spencer’s connection, the more likely it becomes that Trina will rebel and do whatever she wants.

Trina is a young adult who can make decisions for herself, so Curtis will give Portia a gentle nudge to let her daughter do just that – even if she makes some blunders as a result.

General Hospital spoilers say Portia will still worry about Trina and want what’s best for her, so she may not be able to shake her overprotective side completely.
