General Hospital spoilers reveal that another Cassadine villain might be back to Port Charles soon. This week on GH, Cassandra Pierce (Jessica Tuck) was revealed to be loose from WSB custody. Since Cassandra’s in a coma, she didn’t orchestrate her release. Someone else is running the show. It might just be a Cassadine pulling the strings, given Cassandra’s history with the family. Here are the latest spoilers that hint a Cassadine is lurking in the shadows.
General Hospital Showrunner Frank Valentini Drops Clues
In a recent General Hospital spoilers interview with Michael Fairman, showrunner Frank Valentini dropped some hints about upcoming plots. One is the return of Laura Spencer (Genie Francis). Valentini mentioned that there are “two big stories for Genie” with a “little bit of overlap.” One story already revealed involves Ryan Chamberlain and Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom).
The other is up in the air, but some leaks from behind the scenes said there’s a big Cassadine story coming that might also involve Laura Spencer. That aligns with the return of Cassandra and her mysterious co-conspirator. One thing we know is that it’s a man. Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) weaseled that factoid out of the henchmen at the secret clinic.
Another Cassadine Return Hinted on GH
We found some General Hospital spoilers from an inside set source that mention the coming Cassadine drama. The new Cassadine plot will also involve Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn). With Cassandra’s dirty business dealings tied to the Cassadines, it makes sense that a Cassadine might be her savior. Someone kidnapped her from the WSB, and it’s not Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart).
I’ll take Stefan, Stavros, Helena, Nikolas and Victor back please. #GH

It won’t be Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) who seems well and truly dead at last. Anna’s digging ferreted out that it’s a man. Two Cassadine men are very strong possibilities to return for this story. One would be a recast, and one would be a reprisal of a role. Both have strong ties to both Laura Spencer and Alexis Davis. Guess who it might be?

Cassadine Possibility #1
First, General Hospital spoilers hinted for some time that the soap was auditioning actors to recast Nikolas Cassadine. Tyler Christopher is settled in at Days of Our Lives as Stefan O. DiMera. It’s clear he’s not coming back to GH. And most fans believe that Nikolas is NOT dead since a body never turned up.
Second, Nikolas was turning into a pretty dark dude right before he “died.” Remember he tried to have Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig) killed. He also faked his death to implicate Hayden and Drew Cain (Billy Miller). It wouldn’t be a stretch to think that Nikolas was living in the shadows and involved with Cassandra.

Cassadine Possibility #2
Another General Hospital spoilers possibility is Stefan Cassadine (Stephen Nichols). He “died” back in the 2000s, but you can’t kill a Cassadine. Stefan had very close and affectionate ties to both Alexis and Laura. The leaked spoilers indicate both women are involved in this upcoming Cassadine storyline, so that makes Stefan a viable return.
Tori, I am touched and humbled by your kind words. I will be forever indebted to you and all of our dedicated supporters who give so much love. I accepted their offer after trying unsuccessfully to negotiate something better than a 30% cut. With no warning -written out. Truth https://t.co/6SS6mmR0ZQ

Most importantly, Stephen Nichols is available. He just tweeted about parting ways with Days of Our Lives after decades as Steve “Patch” Johnson. With Laura Spencer likely married to psycho killer Ryan Chamberlain, it might be interesting to revive one of her past love interests. Stefan is a fan-favorite with deep ties in Port Charles. He’d be great to bring back in a twist.
Cassandra’s on the scene soon and Hamilton Finn (Michael Easton) revives her, and then we’ll find out more about her mystery partner. Nothing is confirmed yet, but rumors are swirling that it’s a surprise Cassadine comeback. Which Cassadine do you hope crops up on the GH scene? Would you rather Nikolas or Stefan come back from the dead?
