‘General Hospital’ Speculation: Gladys Will Keep Brook Lynn’s Baby Secret — For A Price

Secrets and lies are coming out of the woodwork on General Hospital. Now that Gladys knows the truth about Brook Lynn’s baby — or what she thinks is the truth (because she doesn’t know all of it) — she’s threatening to snitch. But it really doesn’t matter who knows the truth about the little one — as long as it isn’t Valentin Cassadine. And, to be honest, Brook Lynn isn’t the only one who’s hoping that Gladys keeps the secret. On this week’s General Hospital speculation, though, we question what it will cost to keep that secret — and who will be willing to pay that price.

On ‘General Hospital,’ Brook Lynn is trying to get to Gladys before she snitches

As fans of General Hospital are aware, Brook Lynn has “custody” of Maxie’s baby. Now, there are plenty of reasons why this is so — not the least of which being that Maxie has the baby daddy from Hell. Regardless of the reasons, though, there are only two people that know the truth: Maxie and Brook Lynn.

That is, of course, until Gladys found out what she thought was the truth. It’s incontrovertible that Valentin isn’t the father of Maxie’s baby. But what Gladys doesn’t know is that Brook Lynn isn’t the mother of Maxie’s baby, either. (Trust us, if she knew, she’d be telling everyone who would listen.)

So now, this week’s General Hospital will feature Brook Lynn trying desperately to stop Gladys from getting to Valentin.

So far, she’s been unsuccessful

Unfortunately, so far, Brook Lynn hasn’t been successful in tracking down Gladys. According to Hidden Remote, too, this may mean that Brook Lynn is willing to take drastic measures to get a hold of Gladys.

“Brook Lynn is upset thinking that Gladys is about to spill the beans to Valentin. She and Maxie get their heads together to form a new plan of action. Maxie is desperate to stop her, while Brook Lynn says, “Stop her dead in her tracks,” they write.

Naturally, Maxie and Brook Lynn gain from Gladys keeping their secret. So, what are they going to do?

Gladys may keep her secret — for a price

To be fair, Valentin has been the paragon of understanding. If anyone over at General Hospital is understanding about “going through some things,” it’s him. But the reality is, Valentin is falling in love with Anna Devane now — which means that leaving Brook Lynn is inevitable. So, this whole discussion may be moot.

But if it isn’t, our speculation suggests that Gladys will keep Brook Lynn’s secret…for the right price. But what is the “right price”? And who would be willing to pay it? Would Maxie’s interference be a help — or a hindrance — to this quest?

Now, this is all just speculation. It’s entirely possible that Gladys will snitch regardless of what’s up for proffer. We’ll just have to tune in to upcoming episodes of General Hospital to find out for sure.
