Hey there, General Hospital fans! We couldn't help but notice that a lot of you have been having some mixed feelings about the recent storyline involving the "death" of our beloved character, (Nicholas Chavez). And let us tell you, you're not alone in that sentiment.
We've talked about lazy writing a few times before, and it seems like many of you are calling out the show for exactly that in the comments section of the weekly spoiler video. It seems that the unnecessary and pointless death of yet another character has left you feeling disappointed and unimpressed. We totally get it.
Ever since the old writer returned and took back control from the replacement writers, there has been a noticeable decline in pacing and quality. Some of you have even pointed out that the show feels more like it's being run by an AI rather than real people with a clear vision and direction.
So, let's talk about what specifically triggered the latest uproar. It all started with a downright idiotic move by Spencer, who gave his precious Ace to Nikolas Cassadine (played by Adam Huss). This prompted (Avery Kristen Pohl) to lose it completely. She was trying to toe the line, but this event pushed her over the edge.
First of all, another presumed death was completely unnecessary. There were so many other creative alternatives that could have been explored. For instance, Spencer could have been in a coma or simply off-screen during Trina's scenes. Esme could have taken off with her baby, and that could have created a thrilling storyline where everyone was on edge when Nikolas returned, expecting her to follow.
It's clear that there's a massive disconnect between the writers and the fans, which probably explains why new head writers were brought in. But we want to hear from you. What do you think about yet another presumed death storyline?
