Don't kill the messenger, but General Hospital managed to again have record low ratings, this time for the week of February 13-17.
Could plotlines like the Lady in White, aka Cassandra, aka Irina being Helena's daughter be the reason? Not that plotline, of course, because the few people still watching hadn't caught that one yet.
Even though this is the land where four-year-olds (Claudia) and nine-year-olds (Olivia) give birth, and a 32-year-old goes to high school with someone nearly 15 years her senior, this one can't possibly be true. Helena has to be lying. I'd say that Cassandra/Irina is Laura's child, and Nikolas' twin, except we still have a problem. Twins normally aren't born 19 years apart.
It's difficult to figure out what the writers are doing. They're not trying for reality, that's certain, and who knows, maybe they're onto something. Making it as absurd as possible just might be the answer.
