Fans have strong opinions about Nina

The official General Hospital Twitter account released an episode teaser in late August. Several fans commented on the tweet to give their thoughts about the characters and plotlines. Some users revealed they’re not fond of Nina’s role on the show. 

“The resources wasted on this failed storyline for a useless character like Nina [whose] show debut was in 2014 and overstayed her welcome on #GH is baaaaaad!” one commenter opined. “Then they added Peter. Oy!”

Others agreed by saying that “Nina is trash,” as is Mike.

The recent main storylines do not seem to satisfy various Twitter commenters. A few like Carly and Sonny together better Nina and Sonny. After all, Carly has had a long romantic history with him. 

Peter’s return meant the truth about Sonny would come out soon. Some viewers speculated that Nina would experience a fallout as a result, and fans look forward to it. They believe what she is doing is wrong and that she shouldn’t shed any tears. 

Could Nina be leaving ‘General Hospital’ soon?

Eventually, Sonny regains his memory and tries to rekindle his romance with Carly, who married Jason. As things unravel between those characters, Nina faces the consequences of her actions. She could even end up leaving General Hospital

Nina has brought up the idea of fleeing Port Charles for good. The guilt of her choices might catch up to her. Naturally, Carly would want revenge against Nina because she created the whole narrative about Sonny. And Nina could face legal trouble on top of dealing with personal drama. 

Viewers might have to say goodbye to Nina after she has become a social outcast. Fans who believe she has overstayed her welcome may get their wish. But they’ll have to tune in to see if Nina’s departure is on the horizon.
