General Hospital spoilers and updates tease Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) and Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) have a confrontation. Why wouldn’t he trust her with what’s been going on with his daughter, Charlotte Cassadine (Scarlett Fernandez)?
Anna Devane’s Still Angry
After Anna struck Valentin in the face and he finally spoke up about Charlotte pursuing her on the GH staircase landing, Anna is still furious.
Though there was no way she could have known, she would never have shot the child if she had known it was Charlotte. She blamed herself entirely for the incident.
Although Anna finds it hard to forgive herself for what she views as a grave mistake, her primary concern with Valentin is a lack of trust.
Does he really think that she wouldn’t understand if he doesn’t trust her with his daughter’s problems? If so, how can she trust him?
Does Valentin really think she would have called and had Charlotte arrested without talking to him first?
Anna Devane Is A Mother
Even though she wasn’t around for her daughter Robin Scorpio-Drake’s (Kimberly McCullough) adolescence, Anna is a mother herself.
Because of Cesar Faison’s (Anders Hove) schemes, she and Robin’s father, Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers), were thought to be dead; yet, she gave birth to Robin when she was younger.
To sum up, Robin never experienced the same issues as Charlotte, but even so, she would have understood Valentin’s situation because Anna understands what it’s like to worry about one’s child.
If he had only trusted her enough to open up to her, she may have been able to help him maneuver through Charlotte’s bizarre behavior.
The tarot cards would have been a huge red flag to Anna, but Valentin couldn’t see the forest for the trees; tarot cards and Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy) always spell trouble!
Trust Is Broken, Can They Survive As A Couple?
Valentin and Anna get into a very emotional confrontation, and it’s obvious trust is broken between them-if there ever was trust to begin with.
When they first started to become deeply attached, Anna remembers how Victor was using blackmail to force him to work for him.
Valentin felt compelled to lie to Anna repeatedly, and now it appears that he is doing the same thing over Charlotte, which is why she is accusing him.
At this point, Victor had essentially taken Charlotte hostage and imprisoned her at the boarding school, where he ensured that she was brainwashed against her will. Why, even back then, was Valentin unable to tell Anna the truth? Is he worried about what she could do?
