General Hospital spoilers tease Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner) recently underwent genetic testing. Knowing his father, Marshall Ashford (Robert Gossett), developed Schizophrenia in his earlier years made Curtis want to be doubly sure that he doesn’t have the genetic markers for it.
This wasn’t just about Curtis, but also out of concern that he would possibly pass it on to any children he has with his bride-to-be, Portia Robinson (Brook Kerr). However, his genetic test results threw Portia for quite a loop, and she’s not going to be able to forget what she saw.
General Hospital Spoilers — Portia Can’t Believe the Genetic Screening Results
When the genetic test results came back from the lab, Curtis’ doctor wasn’t yet available. So Portia reviewed them briefly and relayed that out of ten markers for Schizophrenia known to be passed on genetically, Curtis has none of the genes. This noticeably astounded Portia and she struggled to conceal just how shocked she was.
Although Curtis seemed confused by her demeanor because he figured it was the best possible outcome, Portia knew how extremely rare it was for a parent with at least some of those genes not to pass on a single one of them — so rare, in fact, that she suspects Marshall may somehow not be Curtis’ father.
GH Spoilers Indicate Curtis Was Unnerved
Portia enthusiastically broke the news, but it was obvious that she was more concerned with how improbable the outcomes were. Curtis was surprised by her attitude given that she could hardly believe her eyes and was expecting a mixed bag of generic factors to be returned to them. She didn’t appear to be overly joyful or to be worried that Curtis didn’t have the markers he was hoping he wouldn’t. Simply put, Curtis hasn’t made the connections yet, but someone else has.
General Hospital Spoilers — Marshall Couldn’t Clear the Room Fast Enough
Marshall left right away for home. Marshall didn’t want to stay and celebrate with Portia and Curtis, but he shared Curtis’ relief that he was genetically clear. Although none of them appeared to be disturbed by his departure, Curtis did wonder why he left so quickly.
Marshall expressed that it was an emotional time for him and that he is now relieved after being afraid for his son. Marshall hid the fact that this test largely verified his suspicions that Curtis wasn’t his son, which he may have had all along. Who will inform Curtis now? Absolutely not Portia.
