Spoilers for General Hospital (GH) reveal With no explanation as to why he had initially departed Curtis Ashford’s (Donnell Turner), Marshall Ashford (Robert Gossett) returned. Curtis’ father abandoned him and his brother Tommy Ashford years ago when they were both still very little, leaving them with their mother, who eventually passed away.
Since his return, Marshall has made an effort to patch things up with Curtis, and he almost left town once again when the rumored reason for his departure from their lives all those years ago came to light. Marshall alleges he didn’t want Curtis to know he has schizophrenia. Marshall was portrayed as being ashamed and wanting to keep his personal medical information to himself, but when more details about Curtis’ health became public, the story may change.
General Hospital Spoilers — Curtis’ Ashford Genetic Screening Threw Everyone For A Loop
The results of Curtis’ genetic tests were unexpected, but there have been a few oblique indications that Marshall might have known more than he had revealed. Since Portia Robinson (Brook Kerr) entered this field as a physician, she was somewhat more familiar with what the findings might reveal. She had always assumed that Curtis had acquired some of the markers from Marshall since statistically and genetically, this was the most logical explanation.
Very few people manage to avoid acquiring any of the markers from their parents. Portia was therefore visibly shocked when Curtis’ results revealed that such a miracle had actually occurred for him. Curtis, who has since wondered how that’s possible and why his dad departed so suddenly after they studied the data, was not blind to her reaction.
GH Spoilers – Indicate Marshall Ashford Isn’t Anyone’s Father
The entire family will be shocked when the truth is revealed, with the possible exception of Portia, who both suspected it and had a connection to him. Portia is concealing a secret of her own and has no intention of telling Curtis that he might be the father of Trina Robinson (Tabyana Ali). Curtis will be enraged when Marshall comes clean and says he always knew he wasn’t Curtis’ father. He wasn’t even his father, so how could he abandon him and give the impression that his real dad didn’t care about him? How could he reenter his life while passing himself off as his father?
Most importantly, how could he have allowed him to believe that he might be showing symptoms of a dangerous condition like schizophrenia when they aren’t even connected? Before mentioning that Tommy also wasn’t his son, Marshall will make an effort to explain, although it can be met with resistance. Even if Curtis’ mother is no longer alive to defend herself, Marshall may not be intentionally attempting to bring up the unpleasant past or criticize her, but that is exactly what his explanation will accomplish.
General Hospital Spoilers — The Real Reason Marshall Ashford Left
It appears that Curtis’ mother had an affair, and it may have been ongoing. Marshall discovered that he was not Tommy’s father after she gave birth to him. He, Curtis’ mother, and Marshall all decided they wouldn’t inform Curtis that the man she went out with was Tommy’s father. Tommy would be raised by Marshall as his own, and they would maintain their marriage and family. When Curtis was born, everything improved. Marshall believed he had finally given birth to a child of his own until his wife subsequently came clean about it.
Marshall left because he couldn’t bear to raise two kids who served as a continual reminder of his wife’s extramarital affair. Why did Stella Henry (Vernee Watson) wait so long to tell Curtis the truth? She really appreciates leaving sleeping dogs alone. Watch this space for more General Hospital rumors and reveals.
