When the codicil to Mikkos Cassasine’s will was found, it’s contents revert the Cassadine fortune back to Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma) and his heirs and it disinherits Valentin. But even more shocking was the claim that Valentin isn’t Mikkos Cassadine’s son. Even worse for Valentin, it states that Valentin is actually Helena Cassadine’s (Constance Towers) child.
GH Spoilers: Helena doesn’t treat her own children all that well

It is kind of fitting that Valentin isn’t who he thought he was, given how he messed with the true identity of Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros) daughter. Nina would never wish this kind of pain on Valentin though, as she still has no idea who her daughter is.

What do you think?
Will DNA tests prove that Valentin isn’t a Cassadine, but is in fact the bastard son of Helena? How will Valentin deal with losing his entire identity? And will he use ELQ to reinvent himself?
