General Hospital (GH) spoilers reveals Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner) hasn’t slept well since receiving the results of his genetic screening test. He went in wondering if he had any markers for Schizophrenia — since his father, Marshall Ashford (Robert Gossett) developed it many years ago. It was important to Curtis that he know what to expect, and also know what he might be able to pass on to children, now that he’s planning to marry Portia Robinson (Brook Kerr).
The results were a huge success, and Portia was stunned at how remarkable they were. Out of ten possible genetic markers Marshall could have passed on to Curtis, he had none of them. Portia couldn’t contain her shock, and Marshall seemed to have a hard time containing his emotion too as he teared up and left soon after. Ever since that exchange, Curtis can’t shake the feeling that there might be more to the story.

In his defense, he does have Schizophrenia, but it’s been managed well for decades. Still, Marshall was pretty calm as they awaited the results.

Curtis is going to struggle with Portia’s response as she seems like she wants to persuade him to drop the whole thing and accept the blessing that is his clean bill of health.
