The Spencer/Cassadine FeudSpencer and Cassadine families have been at odds since 1981 when Luke killed Mikkos Cassadine in his ice chamber. After Mikkos' death, his widow Helena puts a curse on Luke and Laura at their wedding. In 1982, Laura is kidnapped by the Cassadines and forced to marry Stavros Cassadine. Eventually, Laura is released and reunites with Luke, and they have a son Lucky. In 1993, Luke and Laura return to Port Charles with Lucky. When their daughter Lulu is born in 1994, she is diagnosed with aplastic anemia and Laura reveals that she had a son, Nikolas, with Stavros during the time she was kidnapped. Nikolas comes to Port Charles to save his sister. Nikolas is quick to bond with Lulu, but the relationship between him and Lucky is rockier. In 1999, Cesar Faison, while working for Helena, kidnaps Lucky and fakes his death. When Lucky returns in 2000, he is under Helena's control and brainwashed to hate his parents. Eventually, Lucky is able to break free of Helena's control. Since then, Luke and Helena have continued their feud. Will Helena's final attempt to kill Luke be successful? Is Stavros really dead? Watch GH to find out!
Featured characterScott "Scotty" Baldwin (born Bentley) first came to Port Charles, New York in 1965 with his mother Meg and half-sister Brooke after their father Lloyd Bentley died. The following year, Meg married Lee Baldwin, and he adopted Scotty; Meg died in 1971. Scotty became a lawyer like his father Lee, and fell in love with Laura Webber, whom he married in 1979. The marriage ended in divorce, however, when Laura left him for Luke Spencer in 1981. After a brief marriage of convenience to Jason Morgan's biological mother Susan Moore, and brief relationships with Luke's sister Bobbie Spencer and Lucy Coe, Scotty married Dominique Stanton in 1992. Dominique and Scotty desperately wanted a child, but the dying Dominique couldn't carry one, so Lucy agreed to carry the baby for them, and delivered baby Serena in 1993. Scotty later dated Eve Lambert, but then got back together with Lucy, and the two married in 1999. Lucy legally adopted Serena, and they adopted a second daughter, Christina, together. That marriage fizzled, however, and Scotty started dating Laura again after her marriage to Luke also fizzled in 2001. Laura, however, then was confined to a mental institution when she became catatonic after believing she killed her father Rick Webber. Scotty, however, was the one who had actually killed Rick in an attempt to stop him from harming Laura. In 2008, Laura woke up and Scotty wanted to rekindle their relationship. When Laura left town to go to Paris for treatment, Scotty followed her. Now, both Laura and Scotty are back in Port Charles after rekindling their relationship after all these years and are engaged to get remarried. Luke, however, doesn't want Laura to marry Scotty, thinking he's bad news for her. Will Laura marry Scotty, or will Luke be able to stop them? Is Scotty genuine in his love for Laura, or is he using her? Watch GH and find out!
