The heroes of General Hospital have gotten their hands on the all the pledges Shiloh’s acolytes have written him over the years.
Of course, it required Sam (Kelly Monaco) being drugged, branded, and almost raped. But it was worth it to steal the pledge Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) wrote and protect Sonny (Maurice Benard).
As an added bonus, now that Jason (Steve Burton) and Sonny have Margaux’s (Elizabeth Hendrickson) pledge, they can use it to blackmail her.
For those playing along at home, remember: Shiloh (Ryan Coby MacLaughlin) holding a woman’s pledge over her head = Bad.
Sonny and Jason holding a woman’s pledge over her head = Good! Especially since the pledge is about a murder Sonny committed.
Willow (Katelyn McCullough) also got her pledge back from her days in the cult. Do viewers want to know what was in it? How almost 12,000 feel:
Tell Me More, Tell Me More
For over 91% of the audience, The Powers That Be damn well better fill you in on what’s in that pre-printed envelope. (All those envelopes pre-printed — how much free time does Shiloh have on his hands?)
When Willow first popped up as Aiden and Charlotte’s (Scarlett Fernandez) teacher, viewers were ‘meh’ about her. But now that she’s gone a few rounds with Nina (Michelle Stafford) — and, especially, thanks to her romance with Chase (Josh Swickard), she’s becoming a favorite. And you want to learn more about her!
Less Is More
And then there’s the 9% that doesn’t care. Willow is a minor character, attached to a minor character, and the one tie she thinks she has to a core family — being Wiley’s mother – -isn’t even true. So once the truth about that comes out, what purpose will she – or her pledge – serve? Why complicate matters when she’ll be gone shortly.
