General Hospital let Nikolas Cassadine‘s portrayer Marcus Coloma go recently. So, will the legacy character exit GH for good, or is there a recast coming? Check out some possibilities for the fate of the dark prince on the ABC daytime drama.
General Hospital: Nikolas Cassadine Dead Again
Marcus Coloma’s departure from General Hospital as the melancholy prince Nikolas Cassadine was just announced. End of January 2023 will be his last airdate. Marcus recently discussed his departure in public.
He admitted that the end of his tenure as Nikolas makes him feel unbearably sad. Marcus also decides not to record his final scenes as Nik. Therefore, it will interfere with the ongoing General Hospital plots. Naturally, this information raises the question of what will now happen to Nikolas.
He is currently involved in various complex tales. Therefore, one of them might be changed to account for Marcus’ departure. And there’s a chance Victor Cassadine could be involved (Charles Shaughnessy).
Indeed, as General Hospital recaps have shown, Nik is on his uncle’s bad side. Particularly now that Ava Jerome (Maura West) wants to completely discredit him in their divorce.
Then there is the Elizabeth Webber drama (Rebecca Herbst). Vic will also undoubtedly learn about the Esme Prince (Avery Kristen Pohl) scandal soon.
Nik may therefore seem like more bother than he’s worth to Victor. Additionally, he might expel his nephew. The bad guy has a good chance of killing Nikolas. Or, on General Hospital, he might hide him somewhere where he also keeps Lucy Coe (Lynn Herring) hidden.
Dark Prince Goes Missing on GH
The next prisoner of Nikolas Cassadine’s terrible uncle may arrive soon. Victor is infamous for imprisoning individuals rather than killing them. He can then use them against his adversaries as leverage.
He might therefore kidnap Nikolas. The Hook could also succeed in catching him. And Victor might potentially be involved with that. The Hook Killer is a female, after all.
But it looks like Vic is controlling her. And General Hospital spoilers suspect that she’s none other than Deputy Mayor Eileen Ashby (Heather Mazur). So, Vic may send her after Nikolas.
Even if Nik turns up to be alive, it will buy the showrunners some time. Then, they can figure out what to do next. There’s a good chance the character will be recast, but he might disappear on GH in the meantime.
Nik Runs off with Esme Prince on General Hospital
Esme is a potential means for GH to temporarily write Nikolas Cassadine off. After she gives birth to his child, he still intends to send the pregnant teenage villain to Cassadine Island in Greece.
He might thus choose to follow her. Given that he’s giving his loved ones nothing but sorrow on General Hospital, Nikolas could believe that it’s in everyone’s best interests if he leaves town.
Spencer Cassadine, his son, has had enough of him (Nicholas Chavez). Additionally, he is making Elizabeth’s life difficult. Nik may therefore believe that leaving Port Charles and taking Esme with him is the wisest course of action.
However, it’s a risky plan because Esme could quickly turn on him. And his life may be in jeopardy on GH. So, be sure not to miss a minute of the ABC soap to see what comes next for Nikolas Cassadine. Will he survive? Watch and see.
