General Hospital Spoilers: Michael’s Narcissistic Need To Control Comes Through

At least things between Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros) didn’t get as awful as “General Hospital” (GH) spoilers had anticipated. They were still awful, which indicates that he hasn’t changed at all.

He, Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy), and Carly Spencer (Laura Wright) eventually require shock therapy to decipher the sequence of events; however, Carly requires far less than her kids.

Michael’s Narcissistic Need to Control Comes Through

Given how much Nina and Carly resemble each other, Nina could also benefit from counseling. Both of them react instinctively to injuries without considering the consequences, and when things go wrong, they struggle to keep everything together.

The four share a similar personality type, which would account for their ongoing need for retribution. The self-righteous group dislikes how Nina represents them and how they are unable to accept responsibility for their mistakes.

All the while, Nina has admitted she was wrong when she has messed up every time when she’s been confronted by it.

The plus side of Michael’s actions isn’t that he’s trying to destroy his family, he’s just trying to control every aspect of them out of a narcissistic need to “protect” them.

Digging it deep

If we are being sincere with ourselves, Michael’s attempt to dictate to Nina when she is allowed to visit her daughter and grandchild is nothing more than a control mechanism. It’s more about hurting Nina than it is about defending his family.

It is evident from the fact that he wants her to return the Metro Court to Carly on the grounds that she stole it.

This also explains why Carly rebuffed Nina’s early attempt to return it because Carly’s pride prevented her from accepting it. Additionally, Drew Cain (Cameron Mathison), like Carly, is incarcerated due to his own choices.


Willow Tate (Katelyn MacMullen) is more than capable of thinking for herself, but she’s being cut out of this decision and when she learns of it the writers will take the lazy way by having her submit to the person in authority.

It’s her character type to do that after being raised and passed around in cults her whole life, though it would be nice if she was allowed to make a decision for herself instead of allowing Michael and Carly to continue to do so and then going along with it.

This won’t help anyone and only draw things out, but there is a way to end it.

Nina comes clean

Nina can end it and take away Michael’s power by telling Willow and Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and deal with the consequences.

She might or might not lose everything. Sonny will be incensed, but he can see her point of view because he hasn’t absolved Carly of any responsibility for her decisions.

In addition, if she came clean, “General Hospital” spoilers be warned—there would be a lot more plot points that could be explored rather than dragging it out to make Michael feel good about bullying a woman.

Will Willow get Nina’s full confession? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below, and be sure to return to “General Hospital” for the most recent rumors, spoilers, and developments.
