Why Willow’s General Hospital Cancer Story Needs To Be Over…For Real

Why Willow's General Hospital Cancer Story Needs To Be Over...For Real

General Hospital spoilers reveal Willow allegedly on the road to recovery after her long-awaited, hard-to-come-by bone marrow transplant — so let this be the end of this completely irresponsible and infuriating tale.

General Hospital Spoilers: Willow Was Dying For Way Too Long

For one year, Willow Tait (Katelyn MacMullen) and cancer seemed synonymous. When she was first diagnosed with the disease after learning she was pregnant, the soap had a shot at telling a compelling story about a woman choosing her own life over the life of a child. Instead, we got a woman who ignored her cancer, refused treatment for months, and then got a miracle cure most people don’t get. If that wasn’t bad enough, she never even learned to show a little grace.

In January, Willow learned her biological mother was Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros), a woman who was mean to her a few years ago when she was a third-grade teacher and had Nina’s former stepdaughter, Charlotte Cassadine, in her class. Willow also learned she had a few weeks to live.

In June, Willow is still alive, finally received Aunt Liesl Obrecht’s (Kathleen Gati) bone marrow, and is as cold and mean to Nina as ever. However, as TJ Ashford warned, she is not out of the woods yet as her body could reject the bone marrow.

Let Willow Either Live Or Die

If GH told this story responsibly, a woman who refused cancer treatment until the end should be dead by now. In fact, Willow’s attitude during her own ordeal had the social media fandom rooting for the cancer. Instead, Liesl’s bone marrow seems to have won and this needs to be the end of it.

Since Willow isn’t dead and the show apparently has no intention of killing the character off after we had to endure this story, then give her a quick recovery so we can just move on. Nobody wants to see Willow have any more deathbed wishes, pass out again, or complain because she is in this predicament she brought on herself by refusing treatment. If we can all forget that we had to endure this story for 12 full months, we will be a lot better off. Stay tuned to The Bold and the Beautiful weekdays to see how these stories play out.

    Well that was very harsh! Seems even critics forget this is a soap. True, the cancer/Willow story was strung out too long. If they were going to have her live, they should have gotten to that point sooner and not had her refusing treatment, etc.! That said, I hope Michael goes back to his old self and he and Willow live long and happy lives with their little family! But then that doesn’t happen for long in Soaps, does it!

  2. […] The discord between Sonny and Michael has reached an all-time high. It seems like there is no one who can bridge the gap between them, except, of course, Carly. However, she won’t let things slide easily. Carly is beyond upset with her children for putting themselves in such a dangerous situation. As a mother, she wants nothing more than to protect them from harm. But Carly’s goal has been to bring Michael and Sonny back together, not to drive a wedge further between them. So when Michael gave her a way to save her own skin without uttering a word about what Sonny has done, she was shocked that he would betray his father in that way. Moreover, she was deeply concerned about the safety of her family should Michael have acted on his plan to take Sonny down. But she might not want to clutch too tightly to the relief she felt when he left the flash drive in her possession. […]
