‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Valerie Spencer Return Story – Chase’s New Partner?

General Hospital Spoilers say that Brytni Sarpy is on her way back to General Hospital as Valerie Spencer and perhaps Chase’s partner. This news has some GH fans scratching their heads. Others are lamenting in the streets. However, these reactions are not too surprising. Val has been rubbing people the wrong way for a long time.

GH spoilers – Spencer Family Tree

Why does Val’s return spark so many emotions? Some GH fans are having a hard time remembering who Valerie Spencer is. Others that do remember see no reason for her to reappear at all.

So, let’s recap. According to Soap Central, Valerie’s mom, Pat, is Luke (Anthony Geary) and Bobbi Spencer’s (Jackie Zeman) older sister. Pat died of heart failure shortly after helping Luke remember his past. So, Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) talked cousin Val into relocating from Pennsylvania to Port Charles.

General Hospital is Calling All Cars – Detective Harrison Chase Needs a Partner

Many are questioning the relevance of Valerie Spencer’s upcoming return to Port Charles. Although, her role is still unclear, supporters are hoping for a well-written plot. Haters, on the other hand, are already vowing to fast-forward all of her scenes, and she hasn’t even aired yet!

Currently, the PCPD is pretty short on cops. Detective Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) is off on assignment leaving Detective Harrison Chase (Josh Swichard) holding the bag. Perhaps, Val can help fill this gap. Maybe Chase will let her fill another void, as well. Now that he is getting revenge on Nelle (Chloe Lanier) for trying to ruin his career, he’ll need something to occupy his time. Hint, hint.

Valerie Spencer is Worth Redeeming

GH spoilers and fans are saying that Val needs a reboot. They want more from this character. The consensus is that she has so much room for growth. Maybe writers can start filling in the blanks of her backstory. This may help fans relate to her better. Although, she was almost killed for her affair with Dante about three years ago and that didn’t make a difference. Fans still chose not to forgive her. So, what will it take? Dante is far from blameless, and his fan base is still intact. So this sounds like a double-standard. Nevertheless, it will just have to be a sore subject for the masses.

Perhaps Val’s life mirrors a little too close to reality. Maybe losing her mother drove her to make some reckless choices. But despite her past, she is proving to be a reliable cop and friend. She is there whenever anyone needs her help. She is also kind and willing to do anything for her friends. Just ask, Kristina Davis (Lexi Ainsworth)!

Hopefully, Valerie Spencer’s return will give her a chance to win more hearts this time around. Her supporters are looking forward to her transformation. So far, she has gone from admin to police woman in mere months. Next on the list could be detective. With some good writing, she can be anything she wants. Who knows? Maybe, in a few years, she’ll run for Mayor. The point is that Valerie is a Spencer, and viewers feel it’s time that she acts like it. Lulu invited her back into the fold. Maybe it’s time that we do too.

General Hospital is my guilty pleasure. For over 20 years, I have escaped to Port Charles, NY so that I can laugh and cry with its beautiful residents. I’ve watched many other soaps over the years, but only GH has stuck with me from high school, through the birth of my children and beyond. As a writer for Soap Dirt, I now, get to inform the fans who can’t watch the show on a regular basis.
