When the local mob boss is your most heroic character, shows like General Hospital need to bring their bad guys in from the outside. They have two excellent ones. Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) is a bitter, wounded bit of Eurotrash supervillain, while Nelle (Chloe Lanier) is bitter, wounded trailer trash. They are both also terribly attractive.

What will happen if these two join forces for the long haul? Over 3,000 viewers enjoyed speculating about it:
Can’t Work, Won’t Work
Valentin hates Nelle, a majority 55% of you remind. There’s no way he’d join forces with her for anything but a quick burst of mischief. Sure, they worked together on taking down the Quartermaines, and Valentin was willing to buy Nelle an exit from town. As in – away from him. Not only does he strongly dislike the woman, but he doesn’t trust her. This is not the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Or anything else.
It was so close that only 24% of the audience was able to squeeze out a win for Nelle and Valentin will work together. They may even sleep together. But they wouldn’t go so far as to get married. Valentin loves his stuff too much to risk Nelle taking it away from him. And he loves Nina (Cynthia Watros) too much to make it harder for her to come back to him. Which he is totally sure will happen. Any minute now.
An only slightly smaller 21% expect all of the above, and a wedding, too. Nelle has something Valentin wants. Valentin has something Nelle wants. The best way for each to acquire it from the other is to make it legal. That way, should some tragic accident befall one of the dearly beloved, well, community property is a wonderful thing, isn’t it? General Hospital (GH) airs weekdays on ABC.
