It’s gonna be a hot time in Port Charles this summer, as co-headwriters Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor promise plenty of drama, romance, and excitement on GENERAL HOSPITAL in the coming months!
“Sonny is once again top dog in Port Charles, but he may find that he has surprising enemies lurking just beyond his sight,” they teased to Soap Opera Digest. “Outside of the mob world, Sonny has to navigate his feelings for Nina and his love for his family.” Thankfully for the beleaguered Nina, it sounds like things may be looking up for her. “An opportunity will present itself that will allow Nina to reclaim some of her standing in Port Charles,” they promised.
Meanwhile, Michael and Willow “receive some exciting news that they can’t wait to share with the world, but Willow may have some other pressing issues that take priority.” Although that shouldn’t be learning the truth about Nina being her real mother, since Carly has decided to keep that secret. “She thinks it’s for the greater good,” the scribes explained, “for both Willow and her family, to protect them. But there could be consequences, not just for her relationship with Michael and willow, but for her budding, let’s say friendship, with Drew, as well.”
Liz may be getting treatment for her fugue states, but that may not be the solution she hopes it will be. “Elizabeth has received a diagnosis from some medical professionals and has latched onto that,” the writers revealed. “She believes there is a cut-and-dried medical explanation for everything that she has done. But Finn and Laura are less convinced that the loss of Franco was the catalyst for her strange behavior in the last year.”
The summer months are usually time for fun, but the younger set in Port Charles can’t really enjoy their vacation. “Trina is in for a dramatic summer as her legal situation comes to a head,” they teased. “It will be a race against time for Spencer to unmask Esme as the villain that she is and exonerate Trina. The tension between Cameron and Josslyn continues to simmer with Cameron keeping the giant secret from Josslyn about Spencer’s true motivations.”
Meanwhile, Trina’s mom has her own problems to deal with in the coming months. “Portia’s main priority is making sure Trina is exonerated,” the writers said, “but as the truth about Marshall comes to the forefront, it may force Portia to reassess a certain secret that she has been keeping for many years.”
Stay tuned to GH to watch as all of that drama — and much more — unfolds in the coming months!
