Ned Quartermaine (Wally Kurth) knows whodunit, but when he awakens from this coma, he could not recall that he knows anything about it, according to General Hospital Spoilers. Brutal, yes? And startling! Since the beginning, Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros) has been taking the heat for Ned’s reporting of Carly Spencer (Laura Wright) and Drew Cain (Cameron Mathison) to the SEC for insider trading.
Overhearing her panicking to her attorney, Martin ‘Marty’ Grey (Michael E. Knight), was the best thing to happen to Ned in weeks. So it’s a darned shame that he may lose all recollection of it. Moreover, if he doesn’t wake up anytime soon, Carly could find herself behind bars alongside Drew before Ned has time to intervene. But when Ned wakes up claiming to not remember how he got there or any of the events leading up to his hospitalization, he’s going to give Nina a glimmer of hope that it’ll all be okay. Well played, Ned, well played.
Carly Spencer And Drew Cain Deserve Retribution
Ned meant what he said when he told Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) he loved Carly — as Olivia’s business partner, as Michael Corinthos’ (Chad Duell) mother, and more.
She is family in his book. Obviously, Drew fits the same bill. Ned didn’t want to see any of this happen to them, and he certainly didn’t wish for it at such a painful time when Willow Corinthos (Katelyn MacMullen) is fighting for her life.
General Hospital spoilers show Carly didn’t deserve all that Nina has done to her either, and when Ned comes to, he just might do something about it. Of course, memory loss is a plausible outcome here, and who are we kidding?
It’s par for the course where a coma is concerned in Port Charles. But it’s also possible Ned could be feigning the memory loss he presents with, and waiting for just the right time to pounce on Nina.
Ned Quartermaine Makes the Right Move This Time
Ned has a history of being a mysterious person. He has kept many secrets from Olivia, and doing so has more than once brought his marriage dangerously close to dissolution. He won’t endanger his marriage by keeping Olivia in the dark now that they are back on good terms.
This is important though. How can he clue Olivia in and make sure no one else finds out he’s actually as sharp as a tack and up to his usual strategic tricks?
What if she disagrees with him on how to proceed? Ned wants to play the long game to get Carly back everything she deserves, but Olivia may want to tell the truth right away — especially if Ned doesn’t wake up anytime soon.
Nina Reeves Will Pay
The top of Ned’s list of requirements is to have Carly return to the Metro Court as Olivia’s co-owner. It’s difficult to see how else he could force Nina to give up everything she has, and she’ll accept the bail as well. Ned isn’t a man Nina would typically want to tangle with because she is well aware of the Quartermaine family’s reputation.
She will, regrettably, not have to wait for him to awaken before beginning to pay for her wrongdoings? In the interim, she’s going to be eaten alive by her own guilt and paranoia as she frets that he might wake up any day and wreck her life.
Thus, when Ned comes to and insists he doesn’t remember a thing, Nina just might think she’s off the hook — and that’s just the Quartermaine way of getting one’s enemy right where they want them. Keep checking back with us for more GH news and spoilers to see how this pans out.
