Willow, as played by Katelyn MacMullen, has only been on General Hospital for about a month, but she’s already been involved in two different stories.
First, Willow talked to Liz (Rebecca Herbst) and Franco (Roger Howarth) – Lucky, who? – about Aiden’s problems at school.
Next, she crossed paths with Chase (Josh Swickard) in a parking garage on her way to a bereavement group where, what do you know, Michael (Chad Duell) is one of the other participants.
This can mean only one thing. Willow is here to stay. Fan theories are already flying. Could she be Nina’s (Michelle Stafford) real daughter? Could she be the birth mother of the baby Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas (Ryan Adams) initially adopted?
And, if Willow is here to stay, she’ll need a love interest. That’s soap opera law. So who would be best for her? Over 9,000 have a very strong opinion about it!
There’s a definite symmetry to Willow hooking up with Michael, especially if she’s the original baby Wiley’s biological mother — 60% are looking down the line at long-term story.
What if Willow gets “her” baby back? And she and Michael are raising him together. And then Nelle (Chloe Lanier) – or Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) – return to drop the bombshell that Wiley is really Jonah? There’s years worth of story here!
Then again, maybe Willow needs somebody with a little less baggage, like Chase, according to 39% of you. We don’t really know much about him, except that he made a pretty bad judgment call with Nelle years ago. But, then again, so did Michael.
And, if Willow is hiding something truly terrible, then Chase might be open-minded about it. Unless of course she broke the law.
But, then again, he did look the other way when Nelle did that. You can’t think of a really great reason for her to be with Chase. But, then again, so far there really aren’t any bad ones, either.
