GH Spoilers: Drew Cain Frustrated His Memories Were Transferred To Franco Baldwin
General Hospital spoilers reveal Drew Cain leaves Port Charles a disappointed and broken man. He just lost his son Oscar Nero (Garren Stitt) to a brain tumor. One of the main reasons Drew hesitated to retrieve his memories was losing that last few years of his current memories with his children. However, he knew Oscar wanted him to take the risk. So, just when he was ready to take that leap of faith, the drive with his memories was ripped from him.
General Hospital spoilers recall Shiloh Archer (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) stole the drive that had Drew Cain’s memories. In a heroic act, Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth) saved his stepson Cameron Webber (William Lipton) from having Drew’s memories transferred to him. So, now Franco has Drew’s memories and Drew still has his twin brother Jason Morgan’s (Steve Burton) past memories and only his from the last few years. No doubt Drew is beyond frustrated. It seems that the transfer is only a one-way procedure. It certainly cannot be easy to accept another man is walking around with your past memories believing he is you.
