‘General Hospital’ News: Donna Mills Back – Madeline Reeves Escapes Pentonville?

General Hospital spoilers reveal the return of Donna Mills as Madeline Reeves on GH. Since Reeves is currently in prison for slaying Silas Clay (Michael Easton), fans wonder whether she’ll be behind bars or on the loose. With Reeves’ sister Dr. Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) on the loose, it begs the question of whether the sister will share a cell or might go on the run together.

General Hospital spoilers – Donna Mills Back, But Why?

Entertainment Weekly reported news of Donna Mills’ return to General Hospital. If you’re a newer watcher, Madeline Reeves is the mom of Nina Reeves (Michelle Stafford) and adoptive mother of dearly departed Nathan West (Ryan Paevey). Madeline is locked up for murdering Nina’s ex-husband and she and Nina are estranged.

However, Nina appeared touched when Peter August (Wes Ramsey) told Nina that Madeline gave him some of Nathan’s childhood memorabilia for a scrapbook he was making. That name drop was the first hint that one of the worst moms in soap history might be back to Port Charles. EW said that Donna Mills’ return will be brief, so she’s not back for a lengthy arc.

Madeline Reeves Gets a Cell Mate?

So why bring her back? Perhaps, she wants to make things right with her only living child – Nina. This is not very likely. Madeline is not warm and fuzzy and Nina doesn’t need her. Whatever brings Madeline back to the screen, her history says she’s not trustworthy. With Madeline Reeves at Pentonville, maybe her sister Liesl will break her out and they go on the run.

Another idea for Madeline is to be cellmates with Liesl if the cops get lucky and find Dr. O. But one option to consider is that Madeline might interact with another horrible mother. General Hospital spoilers show that the title of worst mom in Port Charles might now belong to Nelle Benson Corinthos (Chloe Lanier).

Nelle just gave her newborn baby to Brad Cooper (Parry Shen) just so she could make Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) believe he killed his son. Nelle is more concerned with hurting Michael than having her son around, so she’s pretty awful. If she and Madeline wound up as cellmates, they could sit around and chat about their mutually murderous pasts.

Madeline Reeves Reunited With Family?

General Hospital spoilers hint the real problem will be if Madeline Reeves escapes from prison. She told Nina that she will see her again. It is also well known, that she will stop at nothing to get Nina’s fortune. That includes murder. If Madeline breaks out, Nina’s life could be on the line. Then again, maybe Madeline will target Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) for hurting her daughter.

If Liesl is caught, it is possible that the sisters will be reunited once again. There’s no telling the plans that General Hospital has for Madeline, but no doubt fans can look forward to fiery scenes. Donna Mills always brings the drama and is the queen of mean whenever she crops up in Port Charles.

GH spoilers remind us that it’s been almost three years since Madeline Reeves was remanded to Pentonville and not seen again, in September 2015. There’s no word yet on when Madeline will be back or how long she’s staying, although it sounds like not too long. Whether she’s back with Liesl or chilling with naughty Nelle, GH fans can’t wait! One thing is for sure – Donna Mills is back.
