Now that we know Nikolas is back on General Hospital in the form of actor Marcus Coloma, the question becomes why has he finally revealed himself and what exactly will be his agenda moving forward?
General Hospital Spoilers Prediction: PC Will Never Be The Same
Nik has been watching and waiting for the perfect time to take back his rightful place, but was this that time? After all, the search is still on for the will codicil, Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) is living as a free man, and life was quite a mess when Nik disappeared back in 2016.
That latter part shouldn’t be a huge issue for General Hospital to clear up. After all, Hayden (Rebecca Budig) left town having caused huge issues and probably was destined for an orange jumpsuit and yet she sauntered back into town without any issues. Why shouldn’t Nik expect the same treatment?
Keep in mind, his mother, Laura (Genie Francis), is the mayor. The one reporter in town, Lulu (Emme Rylan), who might make a stink about it happens to be his younger sister. He even has Ava (Maura West) in his corner, and she owes him after screwing poor Spencer (Nicolas Bechtel) by signing that form that said Valentin wasn’t at fault.
The chess pieces are lining up nicely for a big return and we suspect that even though Nik may not have been ready just yet to reveal himself to Port Charles, Ava seeing him may not be completely unwanted. While it looks like he will not immediately come forward to claim his rightful spot, this new game of cat and mouse should put everyone on the hunt to find him.
Friend or Foe?
The big question is how will Nikolas deal with Valentin and what part did Cassandra Pierce (Jessica Tuck) play? Nothing usually escapes Valentin’s watchful eye so could it be he’s always known he didn’t kill Nik. After all, he denied it so many times we really did start to believe him.
While fans may be expecting Nik to want payback, what if General Hospital pulls a fast one and it turns out they’ve been in cahoots this entire time?
Either way, it’s a safe bet that when Nikolas does reveal he’s alive to the rest of Port Charles, he’s going to have a lot of explaining to do. General Hospital (GH) airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
