‘General Hospital’: Is Willow Cruel for Still Shunning Nina?
General Hospital now has Willow Tait creeping closer to d*ath with no sign of accepting Nina Reeves into her life — but is the leukemia patient being unkind about all this? Or is she entitled to this hardline she’s taking against her biological mother on the ABC soap?
General Hospital Spoilers: Willow Tait on Last Leg Heading to Wedding
GH spoilers see Willow Tait’s (Katelyn MacMullen) last hope in the hands of her biological mother’s aunt. And Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) is willing to put her own health at risk to save her great-niece.
And time is definitely running out for Nina Reeves’ (Cynthia Watros) daughter. Every day, she gets weaker. And if Willow doesn’t get a bone marrow transplant soon, she might d*e before her wedding date.
Yet we see on General Hospital that she stubbornly refuses to let Nina into her life in any meaningful way. As a mother herself, Willow Tait knows the fear of loss. She’s facing the notion that her two children will grow up without a mother.
So, it’s hard to see why she has no sympathy for Nina Reeves, who had one daughter d*e without ever knowing her — Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier). Yet despite her mom’s efforts to save her life, the cancer patient’s unmoved on GH. Is that fair?
GH Fans See Nina Reeves as no Worse Than Carly Corinthos or Harmony Miller
Considering the other maternal influences in her life, it’s unclear why Willow sticks to her hate with such passion. It’s true that she and Nina had a rough relationship from the get-go. But that was about Nina protecting her stepdaughter, Charlotte Cassadine.
And yes, on General Hospital, Nina suspected Willow Tait of cheating with TJ Ashford (Tajh Bellow), but their behavior did look suspect. But is she really worse than Harmony Miller (Inga Cadranel) — her adoptive mother? Nah. No way!
It’s weird that Willow rejects Nina and calls Carly mom. #GHAdvertisement

Remember that Harmony handed Willow over to be molested by Dawn of Day cult leader Shiloh Archer (Coby McLaughlin). And Harmony took her from her dad and abused her for years. Those are things her biological mother would never do.
Plus, Willow seems a bit hypocritical for immediately forgiving Carly Corinthos Spencer (Laura Wright) for months of lies that almost cost her life. And when you look back at Carly’s history versus Nina’s, it’s hard to judge who’s done worse things.
There is a literal folder of Carly's misdeeds like all of them pretty equivalent to Nina's so Willow being all you're like a mom to me… I'm like girl go to your own momma she's just as intrusive as Mikey's and this one is yours. #GH

If you know your General Hospital history, you’ll recall Ms. Reeves spent much of her life in a coma. Meanwhile, Carly wreaked havoc all over Port Charles and was involved in repeat plots to cheat several biological parents of their children.
She did it by keeping Kristina from Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard). And keeping Spencer from Nikolas Cassadine (then Tyler Christopher). And she lied about the paternity of Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) too. So, why is Willow so harsher on Nina?
Nina’s Aunt Saves Willow — But Will She Keep Tormenting Mom on General Hospital?
Spoilers point to Willow Tait getting an eleventh-hour save by Liesl Obrecht’s bone marrow donation. And that leaves years for her to watch her children grow up. But will she keep Nina Reeves out of her grandchildren’s lives?
It must be painful on General Hospital for Nina to see Carly with an all-access pass to both Willow and those children. The main bone Carly has to pick with Nina is her lying about Sonny’s identity when he was amnesiac Mike.
But you might also recall that Nina was about to tell the truth only Carly unleashed yet another tirade of hatefulness on her. Do you think Willow’s being unreasonable? After all, there are really no heroes in Port Chuck…
Willow thinks of Carly as her mom? I guess Willow likes Mommas who lie and keep secrets from her. Barf. Carly gonna rush to twist the knife on Nina, you just watch. #GH

Willow Tait’s adoptive mother was an enabler who helped Shiloh rape young women. And she was a k*ller too. As for her fiancé, Michael, he beat his stepmother to d*ath with an ax handle. And Carly’s roster of misdeeds is very, very long.
But the only person Willow seems to judge harshly is Nina even though she’s got a shorter list of bad behaviors than many others in town. So, do you think Willow Tait is unfairly harsh to Nina Reeves? Or does the woman have it coming on GH on ABC?
