nikolas or valentin: which one is the real cassadine heir?

The In Depth Story: By tracking down the codicil to his grandfather’s will (which would disinherit any of Mikkos’ children born out of wedlock), Nikolas is hoping to reclaim the Cassadine family fortune from Uncle Valentin. But if the codicil was written in Greece — like the updated will which designated Valentin as Mikkos’ rightful heir to begin with — would it even be valid in New York? “It doesn’t matter that it’s a Greek will,” explains attorney Keren G.

The In Depth Story: Aside from a brief blip early on in their relationship, Molly and T.J. have only had eyes for each other since they started dating in secret as high schoolers almost eight years ago. Now, the aspiring doctor wants to pop the question… but should these young adults sew some wild oats before settling down? “I don’t think there’s anything wrong with marrying your first love and spending the rest of your life with the person that you have already spent a lot of your life with,” insists Molly’s portrayer, Haley Pullos. “It just takes a lot of commitment — which they clearly seem to have to each other.” “I don’t think there’s anything wrong with marrying your first love.” When T.J. initially asked for his mother’s engagement ring, Jordan…

The In Depth Story: Taking to Instagram, the actor again expressed his gratitude to viewers for their support. “I still can’t believe it,” he wrote, including a broken-heart emoji. “I loved that show with every ounce of my being.

Eric is willing to pursue an amicable custody agreement, but as…
