Poor Willow can’t seem to catch a break on General Hospital, and we bet she’s had a very hard year.
Yes, she’s dealing with a Cassadine bully in her classroom who’s chosen to torture her cousin, Aiden. And yes, Chase (Josh Swickard) seems smitten with her, yet she doesn’t seem interested, but she’s clearly grieving someone and we think we know who.
Soap Hub believes Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) is grieving the first Wiley, the tiny baby who died in his crib when less than a day old. It seems pretty clear to us she’s that baby’s birth mom and we think Julian just told her the truth to get her to drop her case when she wanted her baby back.
We’re not sure why Willow felt she had to give away her baby, but Julian (William deVry) likely called her and told her that her own child passed away and convinced her to leave well enough alone with Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas (Ryan Carnes).
Knowing the child she carried died is what’s bringing her to these grief support sessions, and likely also what makes her so relatable to Michael (Chad Duell).
That was a woman who clearly lost an infant when she described what Michael must be feeling the other day. She wasn’t just guessing. She was feeling it herself.
And of course, Willow and Michael are now constantly thrown into situations together and the people Willow chose to give her baby to are now raising the baby Michael thinks is dead.
That gets all sorts of messy when Willow and Michael inevitably fall for each other. (We see Chase as the odd man out here. Poor Chase.) Maybe Willow will end up with a baby after all once Michael learns Wiley is really Jonah. That’s going to happen eventually… with Nelle still lurking…
(Please don’t let Nelle kill Willow so the Curse of Michael’s Girlfriends ends.)
