‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Madeline Sells Nina’s Baby Secret to Valentin?

General Hospital spoilers hint Madeline Reeves (Donna Mills) may be the key to Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) winning back Nina Reeves (Michelle Stafford). The key to redeeming their relationship may be dangled by Nina’s awful mother Madeline when he visits her behind bars. Here’s what the spoilers say about Valentin Cassadine winning back Nina Reeves.

Valentin Cassadine needs help to win back Nina Reeves

General Hospital spoilers from Wednesday, August 8 remind that Valentin Cassadine was attacked on two fronts. Nina Reeves soundly rejected him again and then Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) joined in too. Maxie chastised Valentin and said he was using Nina’s love of children and animals.

Maxie then reminded him of his role in Nathan West’s (Ryan Paevey) death. Both women took him to task for handing baby Henrik Faison, aka Peter August, (Wes Ramsey) over to Cesar Faison (Anders Hove). It’s the innocent baby thing that really burns Nina’s buns.

Valentin Cassadine knows kids are Nina’s soft spot on General Hospital

Longtime GH watchers know that Nina Reeves was pregnant when Madeline Reeves drugged her into a coma. Two decades later, Nina woke and was told that her baby miscarried while she was asleep. General Hospital spoilers have hinted for years there would be a twist tied to those events.

Fast forward a couple of years and it came out that Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) gave Nathan to her sister Madeline Reeves to raise to hide him from Faison. It could be that Madeline used Liesl to help get rid of her grandbaby if Nina gave birth to a live child while in the coma.

Madeline Reeves hated Silas Clay on GH

Dipping into Nina Reeves’ backstory, Madeline Reeves despised Silas Clay (Michael Easton). Nina was pregnant with Silas’ baby and that’s why Madeline Reeves drugged her. She didn’t mean to put Nina into a coma but did mean for her daughter to miscarry Silas’ child.

Nina Reeves came out of the coma and was hit with the loss of the child and loss of Silas who was dating Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) at the time. Then she lost Silas forever when Madeline stabbed the doctor in the back over the Reeves family fortune. It’s been a rough road.

Nina Reeves wants a baby more than anything

General Hospital spoilers reveal that Nina has done everything she could to have a baby since coming out of her coma. She tried infertility treatments, pursued adoption, and every other path. None worked out for her. Valentin Cassadine having a daughter is what kept Nina with him when she was angry.

Since Nina found out Valentin ruined baby Peter’s life to get revenge on Anna Devane (Finola Hughes), she closed herself off to him. Nina admitted she loves him but said they could never be together because what he did was unforgivable. There is one thing he could do, though, and that’s to get her a kid of her own.

Madeline Reeves reveals a long-kept family secret

GH fans suspected for years that Nina’s baby didn’t really die. Many think that Madeline Reeves gave the baby to Liesl to get rid of (or even kill) and the kid is lurking around somewhere. Recent General Hospital spoilers point to this plot finally coming to light.

Last week, Valentin Cassadine called a warden to request to see a prisoner. That prisoner is Madeline Reeves. Soap Dirt confirmed that Donna Mills is reprising her role of Madeline for a very short arc. That will be when Valentin goes to see her. He needs help to win back Nina. Madeline Reeves has answers.

Why would Madeline spill the baby beans?

The question is, what would motivate Madeline to tell the truth after all these years? The answer is freedom and money. Madeline doesn’t want to keep rotting in prison and Valentin Cassadine could pull strings to get her out. If she could help him repair his broken marriage, he’d make sure the witch went free.

The other thing Madeline cares about is money. That’s what drives her awful, criminal behavior such as leveraging Ric Lansing (Rick Hearst). Valentin can get Madeline out of prison and send her on her way with a few million bucks. That would be a small sacrifice for him. The only thing Madeline cares about is herself, so she might blab.

Nina Reeves’ baby secret revealed at last

Confirmed GH spoilers from the soap magazines reveal that on August 20, Valentin learns a startling family secret. Some fan fiction blogs guessed that it’s a Cassadine secret, but that’s doubtful. Valentin went to find out if he can win back his wife. That means the secret is about Nina.

Then, on August 22, spoilers say that Valentin Cassadine turns to Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner) for help. Curtis is a private detective, so if Nina’s baby is alive, Curtis would be exactly the man to go find the kid. The PI knows how much Nina Reeves wants a baby and would be on-board to help.

Will Valentin and Curtis Ashford find Nina’s baby?

If Nina’s baby is alive, the kid would be in his (or her) 20s. Some have guessed it might be Kiki Jerome (Hayley Erin) that’s her kid. Ava Jerome (Maura West) was involved with Silas as a side piece at the time Nina went into a coma, so the timelines do align. Plus, with Ava furious at Kiki right not, it might be a good time for her to get a new mom.

GH might make someone else her kid – it could be anyone. Of course, there are no confirmed General Hospital spoilers at this time about Nina’s baby being alive. The latest spoilers hint that it could finally happen, though, so you’ll have to stay tuned to ABC to see what unfolds.

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.
