Port Charles is already off to a roaring start as the drama exploded at the same time the new year began. And according to GENERAL HOSPITAL headwriters Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor, it’s not going to slow down at all in the coming months!

News of Bobbie’s death will continue to spread around town and Port Charles will come together to remember the beloved nurse as well as her portrayer. “As the town learns of Bobbie’s passing, eventually they will come together for her memorial and share their memories and honor the legacy of not only the iconic character of Bobbie Spencer, but also the iconic performer that is Jackie Zeman,” the scribes previewed to Soap Opera Digest. “We will be commemorating Bobbie and Jackie in two very special episodes that are going to be airing in early January that feature not only Bobbie’s memorial, but a special story that we will be telling when a surprise visitor comes to visit, attends the funeral, and raises some questions about Bobbie’s past and present and Port Charles’ future.”

Nina will continue to experience the fallout from her actions, both turning Carly and Drew in to the SEC and then trying to cover it up for months. But even as everyone seems to be turning against her, Nina isn’t about to give up on her marriage without a fight. “She’s far too in love and far too committed to her marriage to Sonny and her love for him,” they explained. “And Sonny will find it difficult to simply let go. He’ll have a number of conflicting impulses; among them are his still-present feelings for Nina, which would be pitted against his longstanding history of holding people to account for disloyalty, real and perceived.”

Meanwhile, learning exactly who turned them in will cause some friction between Carly and Drew. “Interestingly enough, their paths end up diverging,” the headwriters tease. “Carly and Drew want to handle the fallout of the Nina reveal in very different ways. While they are committed to each other and want to make things work, their conflicting ideas of what comes next is not going to make it easy for them.” Meanwhile, Willow and Michael’s marriage continues to splinter as she reels from finding out he kept the truth about Nina from her. “Is there a path towards forgiveness or is this the end of them?” they mused. “The revelation of Michael’s duplicity will have blowback from all corners.”

Another major reveal as 2024 began was Esme regaining her memories. What could this mean for Trina and Spencer’s search for happiness? “Everything looks bright for this couple,” the scribes declare, “but there are storm clouds looming quickly on the horizon. Esme’s year begins with a huge inward-looking struggle as she tries to make the person she has become fit with the person she once was. Which side of Esme ultimately prevails will have a deep impact on much of Port Charles in the new year.”

Plus, fans can look forward to seeing Valentin turn to Nina while he’s on the outs with Anna, Elizabeth getting an unexpected blast from the past, Brook Lynn and Chase trying to plan their wedding, Maxie and Spinelli growing closer, and a whole lot more. So don’t miss a single episode of the drama!
