‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Cassadine Twist on Oct 10 – Sam and Alexis Drop Hints – Nikolas or Stefan Returns?

General Hospital spoilers tease Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and Sam McCall‘s (Kelly Monaco) conversation points to October 10 as a huge day for the Cassadines. On the Monday episode, the women gave away some big hints. Alexis was wearing a watch that belonged to her dead mama Kristen Bergman. It was a gift from Mikkos Cassadine (John Colicos) to his lover. Their discussion about the timepiece revealed several things.

Update** These 10/10 epiodes filmed a month ago. There were two pre-emptions because of Congressional hearings that could push the air date until the end of the week or even Monday. 10/10 in Port Charles won’t align to the same date in real life…

General Hospital Spoilers – Writers forgot GH history

In Monday’s dialog about the watch, between Alexis and Sam McCall, her oldest child. Alexis Davis said it was “all that she had left” of her mother. If you know your GH history, Kristen Bergman was an opera singer that fell for Mikkos. Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) murdered her – slit her throat. Helena later gave Alexis the knife in her will.

But that watch is NOT the only thing that Alexis Davis has of her mother’s. There seems to be a knowledge gap in the writers’ room because long-time GH fans know better. Her mother had a necklace made of two parts – it was diamond and jewels. Alexis had half of it and her sister Kristina Cassadine (Jaime Ray Newman) had the other half. After Kristina died in an explosion, Alexis wore both halves to her funeral.

See the General Hospital funeral video above for a good look at the necklace. That proves Alexis has more of her mother’s things. She’s also mentioned records and other items. Obviously, the writers wanted the watch in the scene, but they could have used language that reflected history accurately. Perhaps they should have had Alexis say, “It’s one of the few things of my mother’s that I have”.

General Hospital Spoilers – Alexis Davis & Sam McCall repeat critical hints

General Hospital spoilers point to the wristwatch being used to deliver a message. Even though literally no one uses a watch to tell time anymore (smartphones, hello?), they set a contrived scene to display the wristwatch. Sam McCall asked Alexis Davis what time it is, took note of what was on her mom’s arm then started this dialog. Obviously, it was foreshadowing something.

Sam McCall: This watch, it’s your mom’s right? The one that MIkkos gave her? You haven’t worn it in a while.

Alexis Davis: I know because I went to get it fixed and now it’s broken again. And it stopped at the same time it stopped last time. 10:10

Sam: Was it running when you picked it up from the shop?

Alexis: Yeah – he said it was working really well.

Sam: Hmm. Strange. Must be a glitch or something that it just stops at 10:10. Yep 10:10.

Alexis: You know, I’m glad I kept this. It’s really a beautiful piece of jewelry.

Sam: You weren’t thinking of getting rid of it were you?

Alexis: Actually I was, you know, but it’s my mom’s. And it’s all that I have left of her… It was given to her in the spirit of love.

You can see General Hospital pics below also of her mother’s jeweled necklace. Helena stole it but Alexis Davis later got it back. Because Kristina died, Alexis inherited the other half. See the full necklace below.

Three times Alexis Davis and Sam McCall said 10:10 on the Monday, October 8 episode. That puts October 10 at two days away because that’s what you get when you make 10-10 a date. It stands to reason they would not have thrice repeated the phrase unless it was important, so what can we expect on Wednesday? Here are a few ideas.

Nikolas Cassadine recast reveal?

General Hospital spoilers from a set source hinted strongly at a Nikolas Cassadine recast. Some Cassadine dude kidnapped Cassandra Pierce (Jessica Tuck). That was weeks ago so perhaps we’ll get another glimpse at the mystery man wearing the Cassadine signet ring this week.

Remember there was also a conversation on Monday between Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) and Laura Spencer (Genie Francis). He said Nik could be alive since there was no body found. Given the Sam McCall and Alexis Davis conversation, the same day, it’s another hint.

Stefan Cassadine Died October 10 on GH

If it’s not Nikolas that has Cassandra, might it be Stefan Cassadine (Stephen Nichols)? There were some General Hospital rumors swirling that he might reprise his GH role after he left Days of Our Lives. Nichols is filming new scenes at the NBC soap, but that doesn’t mean he’s not doing double duty. An important fact is that Stefan died on October 10, 2003.

Plus, the first time Stefan Cassadine debuted on GH, fans saw just his hand and the ring with the family crest. That’s how this mystery man appeared too. Maybe the writers are honoring history – or maybe it’s a trick. Stefan could easily have had the jeweler rig the watch to stop at 10:10, the date of his death as a hint to his niece.

On Tuesday, October 9, Alexis and Laura Spencer (Genie Francis) talked about the watch and 10:10 number. They both mentioned it several times. This was another huge sign. Whether it’s the recast of Nikolas, a resurrection of Stefan, or something else entirely – it’s clear we should expect some sort of Cassadine commotion on Wednesday, October 10. What do you think it is?

Primarily a reality TV junkie, I’ve glommed onto daytime drama over the past five years and am now thoroughly addicted. My favorite is General Hospital but Days of Our Lives is picking up speed fast. CBS soaps are great to watch and I enjoy writing about all these for Soap Dirt.
