Other than the fact that we all know Sam is Alexis’ daughter, the writers rarely touch on the fact that Sam is indeed a Cassadine. Alexis Davis, born, Natasha Alexandra Cassadine, is the daughter of Mikkos Cassadine. Helena was married to Mikkos and she murdered Mikkos’ mistress Kristen Bergmen (Alexis’ Mother) right in front of her. Alexis was traumatized by what she witnessed and experienced severe amnesia. She was raised under the assumption that she was poor and was given the name Alexis Davidovich. This story, similar to a Cinderella/evil step mother saga is what made Alexis who she is today. She is a Cassadine, but like her nephew Nikolas, she is severely lacking when it comes to being an evil sociopath like the rest of them.
Now that we have had a bit of a history lessen, let’s discuss where Sam and Helena fit into all of this. Sam is on the case trying to find out what exactly happened the night of Patrick and Sabrina’s accident. Molly told Silas that Rafe revealed to her that someone put him up to running Patrick’s car off the road. Victor Cassadine admitted to Robin that he was the one who get a hold of Rafe and convinced him to cause the accident in order to keep Robin in line. While Robin is working diligently on bringing Jason back to life, she is also there under strict order from Victor to bring Helena and Stavros Cassadine out of their cryogenic state.
If General Hospital rumors play out, and Helena is actually awakened by the brilliant Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake, we know that Helena will be out for blood. Sam and Helena have had little to no interaction with one another in the past, even though they are both Cassadines. Since Victor has Jason, and Sam is his wife, will Helena want something from Sam before she can see her husband? It would be an interesting twist to finally see these two pinned against one another. Sam is a strong, capable woman but Helena is pure evil. Do you think Sam would stand a chance against the legendary villain?
If you think Helena and Sam would make a great rivalry, share your ideas and thoughts on how such a story should play out. We look forward to reading your opinions!
