General Hospital (GH) spoilers state that Selina Wu (Lydia Look) has made it very clear to Marshall Ashford (Robert Gossett) that she wants to purchase the Savoy and he’s made it even clearer that the bar is not for sale.
With that being said, Port Charles’s queen mob bee does not like hearing the word, “no”. She’s offered up some threats here and there to Marshall, but he’s fluffed them off.
The main reason Ashford doesn’t want to sell the bar is because of his son Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner).
After all, he’s been through quite the ordeal getting shot, struggling for his life, and now diagnosed with a possible lifetime sentence in a wheelchair.
Marshall feels that with all that’s going on in Curtis’s life, especially his health, not to mention his strained relationship with his new bride Portia Robinson (Brook Kerr), the Savoy offers him a distraction and also something to “hold on to”.
Curtis’s bar was a venture he left private investigating for and had built the establishment up to the “it” spot in the little town it is today.
The last thing Marshall wants to do is to sell it to Wu. It could make Curtis feel as if he has “nothing” in his life.
Still, Wu is a powerful woman in Port Charles. Fans have yet to see what she can “really” do, and while she at times teeters between “good” mob boss and “dangerous” mob boss, her dire nature may be revealed, very soon.
She’s been warning Marshall, but he hasn’t truly been taking her threats seriously. That’s because all Ms. Wu has offered is lip service.
Could Selena decide to do something violent that sends a strong message to Marshall? An explosion at the house?
Perhaps, one of her goons tries to run him over, landing him a hospital visit with “non-life-threatening” injuries? Maybe there will be multiple events within the same week to really bring home her message.
Either way, Selina Wu will make it crystal clear that she means business, and she won’t stop until the Savoy is hers. But will anything over the top cause Marshall to cave? Will this create a war that Mr. Ashford isn’t prepared for?
