ABC ‘General Hospital’ (GH) spoilers reveal there’s on-screen and off-screen drama surrounding Charlotte Cassadine (Scarlett Fernandez). The fan opinion seems divided on her and her recent behavior. Recently, this discussion caused the actress herself to come forward to talk about the situation. Here’s what you need to know.
ABC ‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Trouble in Port Charles
First off, let’s talk about the character and what’s been going on with her lately. Ever since we started watching regularly, Charlotte’s been in one situation after another. We caught the fallout from her bullying story line, and it was rough. Everyone in Charlotte’s life had an opinion, but it seemed Willow Tait (Katelyn MacMullen) and Nina Reeves (Michelle Stafford) had the strongest ones. It led to a war that has somewhat lingered to this day, even as actress Cynthia Watros took over the role. Sure things are calmer now, but there’s still that tension.
Then there was the recent acting out against grownups. She blames Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson) and Ava Jerome (Maura West) for the bad ending to the wedding, as well as her loss of Wyndemere. She showed that animosity by defacing pictures of them both. Plus, she tripped Jasper Jacks (Ingo Rademacher), who is currently with Nina. It’s a bad look on a kid, although understandable. The Tuesday episode gave us even more insight into what Charlotte is going through internally.
ABC ‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: The latest
Following the snake in Ava’s purse incident, she had a chat with Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) that turned out to be a shocker. Even Valentin was taken aback. It turns out that Charlotte saw everything the night of the wedding. She knows that Valentin pushed Ava into that water, and she doesn’t seem to care. In fact, Charlotte’s excusing what her father did and thinks it wasn’t a big deal. After all, Ava just got wet. Not hurt. Valentin was shocked by the reveal, and it seems it made him think twice about his behavior and influence over Charlotte. Afterward, he approached Laura Webber (Genie Francis) to saw he won’t challenge Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) for custody. It’s a selfless move that proves how much he loves Charlotte. So, what’s going on behind the scenes?
ABC ‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Controversy
Look in almost any group or blog comment section, and you’re likely to see at least one person maybe going a little too far in their criticism of Charlotte. They’ll make reference to things that are less about the character and more personal. General Hospital spoilers indicate she’s noticed. A recent post on her Twitter account talked about the situation. Check it out below…
Makes me sad when people can’t tell the difference between real life and acting.

It’s a fair thing to snark on a character or hate them. As writers, we actually kind of love when someone hates our character that much—it shows they made an impact. However, this is a kid we’re talking about, and some of the commentary goes beyond what the character did/said. That’s where the line gets blurred and can cause trouble. Some of her fellow child actors were quick to come to her defense. Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer Cassadine) offered his support, saying, “Get used to it, sister.” It just shows how much he’s likely taken himself. Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma Scorpio-Drake) also chimed in with, “Love you, sweet girl.” Here’s hoping the great story continues, and we practice a little more restraint in online commentary.
