General Hospital Spoilers: Esmé’s Attitude Changes, Makes An Offer To Laura For Her Baby’s Sake?
General Hospital spoilers and updates tease Esmé Prince’s (Avery Kristen Pohl) attitude will change, and she’ll make an offer to Laura Collins (Genie Francis) for her baby’s sake. At first, Esmé refused to allow Laura and Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) to take baby Ace Prince-Cassadine (uncredited infants) while she’s in prison but it seems she has second thoughts.
General Hospital Spoilers – Can She Keep Her Baby In Prison?
Heather Webber (Alley Mills) told Esmé she could keep her baby in prison for eighteen months, but what if her information was inaccurate, or Esmé’s term was longer? Heather alluded to them all being in Spring Ridge together, but Heather was taken to D’Archam; and Spring Ridge doesn’t have a nursery. While some state women’s prisons do have nurseries and mothers can keep their babies, it usually only applies to babies born behind bars; Esmé escaped, but Ace was born at Wyndemere.
Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) told Esmé he and his grandmother, Laura would take care of Ace while Esmé finished out her prison term. But Esmé had balked, and Spencer has Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) check options to see if what Heather told her was true.
GH Spoilers – Heather Webber’s Information Only Partly Correct
Diane confirms to Spencer and Laura that what Heather told Esmé was only partly correct-it would only apply to mothers whose babies were born in prison. And of those prisons with nurseries, there are none close to Port Charles, only the state women’s prison in Bedford Hills through a special program. Laura still feels that Spencer would be ill equipped to be his little brother’s only legal guardian, although he can help-she reminds him when his father faked his death.
Laura had to have Nikolas Cassadine (Adam Huss) declared dead and then got guardianship of Spencer-so the same thing could happen with Ace. That is, if Esmé can be convinced when shown proof of the mothers and babies in prison statutes by Diane.
General Hospital Spoilers – Esmé Prince Makes Laura Collins An Offer
After talking with Diane, Esmé makes Laura an offer; she can assume care for Ace until Esmé is able, but she doesn’t want to lose custody of her baby. She wants him back after she’s able to take care of him again-Laura agrees and can understand that, but she asks what about if Nikolas returns and wants sole custody? Laura assures her that if he is found or if he returns they will deal with it in a fair manner-he’ll have to comply with the guardianship.

Just because Nikolas is her son doesn’t mean she’s just going to hand the baby over if he returns-after all she knows what it’s like to be held captive. She tells Esmé the story of how Nikolas came to be when she was held captive by the Cassadines and he’d been different if she could have taken and raised him.
