General Hospital (GH) spoilers suggest that Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier) may be able to throw a wrench into Michael Corinthos’s (Chad Duell) plans to defeat her in a custody battle over Wiley Cooper-Jones (Erik and Theo Olson).
GH fans know by now that Michael is having a super hard time with the idea of marrying anyone for the sake of convenience. While he seems willing to go to the mat in a struggle with Nelle, he obviously hesitated when his lawyer, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) suggested marriage as a solution. After all, his girlfriend Sasha admitted to him that she wasn’t all that interested in being an “insta-mom.” Although understandable, that had to hurt.
Casting about, looking for an alternative didn’t seem very appealing either. Who else would be okay with a marriage based on the needs of Wiley, but without any kind of real love? Obviously, many GH viewers point to Willow Tait (Katelyn MacMullen). Eventually, that option has to pop into Michael’s mind, right? When one considers the factors that could cause Willow to be a backup for Sasha, they kind of make sense.
General Hospital Spoilers – Willow Tait Part Of Wiley Cooper-Jones’ Life
Willow’s been in Wiley’s life since the beginning. Although she believed she was his birth mother who had given him up for adoption, she was slowly getting used to the idea of being in his life on a regular basis. She discovered that she actually loved the kid. It’s no wonder that after discovering that Wiley was his son, Michael would push Willow to stay involved. He even went so far as to tell her that it wasn’t just Wiley who needed her in his life. He needed her too!
Everyone has noticed that as Michael and Willow have spent time together, there seems to be an undercurrent of attraction. That’s not so strange considering the fact that both have gone through grief counseling together. Then, of course, there’s the connection they share with Wiley.
The problem though, is that GH viewers may remember that Michael already went forward with a marriage proposal to Sasha. After witnessing Willow’s confrontation with Nelle at Charlie’s Pub, Sasha became convinced that she would do anything to keep Nelle from gaining custody of Wiley. She therefore rushed back to Michael and accepted his marriage proposal.
GH Spoilers – Michael Corinthos Two Choices
Unfortunately, for them both, Diane ruined their ultra-short (fifteen-minute) engagement. Now, Michael is left with two choices. He can stay single or he can break up with Sasha and find someone to marry whom the court may smile upon.
Even then, there are three obstacles some GH fans can see coming a mile off.

The first is that although Willow loves Wiley, she’s in a relationship with Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard) that she may not be willing to give up. The second is that Michael could completely ruin his friendship with Chase if he asks Willow to marry him. The third is that Nelle could show in court that Willow was in a relationship with Chase two seconds ago and that a marriage between she and Michael was a last-ditch effort to ruin her bid for custody.
If she makes that argument, GH viewers may agree that she actually may continue to have the upper hand in court.
