GENERAL HOSPITAL: A Killer Revealed, Sisters Confirmed, A Tumble Down The Stairs!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Monday’s episode of General Hospital offered up some major reveals and pushed stories forward, as viewers learned just who is the Derisifol Killer at GH!  And if you were fans betting on someone who worked on the hospital staff, you were proved to be wrong!

It all went down in story as Jordan (Vinessa Antoine) asked Ava (Maura West) for her expertise since she has had an art gallery and knows elements of designs, when she showed her an image of the cufflink originally found by Valerie (Brytni Sarpy).  Ava acknowledges it was popular in the art world awhile back.  Ava goes on to relate that she feels who ever cufflink this belongs to comes from money, power, and likes to show it off.  Interestingly both Ava and Jordan feel as though they’ve seen this cufflink on someone somewhere before, but originally can’t pinpoint it.   However, later in a major revelation, Ava remembers it quite well!

There is another patient “death” at General Hospital, and at the time of it, Andre  (Anthony Montgomery was seen giving CPR to the patient.  Monica (Leslie Charleson) and Finn (Michael Easton) walked in, and it cast of shadow of doubt on Dr. Maddox, though he denies having anything to with this.  Later, Monica gets the lab results that the patient died of natural causes and that Andre was not responsible.  However, Finn looks to not believe that this was a “natural cause” of death.

Heather (Robin Mattson) finally comes clean with Franco (Roger Howarth),  and reveals Jeff Webber was having an affair with a married woman, who got pregnant.  This was when Jeff was cheating on his second wife.   That woman who got preggers was Naomi Dreyfus (Robin Riker).  However, Heather made sure Jeff never knew there was a third Webber girl!  Franco now realizes Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) is Hayden’s (Rebecca Budig) sister, and it is confirmed by Heather in typical odd “Heather Webber fashion”.   Next, Franco heads out of visiting Heather in the slammer to tell Liz the news!  Meanwhile, after learning from Ava that Liz has Hayden’s diamond, Hayden heads over to GH to confront Liz and a major confrontation breaks out in which Liz takes a bitch-slap from her sister!

Courtesy/ABC

But things get worse for Liz! She walks into Monica’s office to tell her she is leaving, and finds Paul (Richard Burgi) there looking very suspiscious!  After Liz leaves, Paul is seen holding a syringe!  He is the hospital killer!  But why?  Viewers still don’t know the connection.    Next Liz, heads out down the stairwell to leave for the night to go talk to Jordan about the diamonds she has in her possession when the lights go out in the hospital.  Meanwhile, both Paul and Hayden are on the hunt for Liz.  Next thing you know Liz takes a major tumble down the stairwell after someone pushed her!  But, who did it?

So, what did you think of Paul being revealed as the hospital serial killer? Why is he murdering patients and why did he inject Lucas Jones (Ryan Carnes)? Do you think Franco will tell Liz about Hayden if he even can after Liz’ terrible fall? Who pushed Liz? Share your theories in the comment section below!

Jeff was cheating on his third wife, as Heather was his second after Monica. Another blooper by TIIC. Yesterday’s developments were just more nails in GH’s coffin.

C’mon now, does that REALLY matter to you that much? Does it really affect the story in any way at all?

I’m no defender of GH, but let’s not get ridiculous.

I agree with curaçaoman on his point in that sometimes I wonder how the actors and/or writers don’t know their own history ( they should have fact checkers /researchers for continuity). And there have been a few times when history was changed and I’ve wondered if anyone pointed it out or if they’re so busy saying their lines that they don’t remember their own character’s story. In this case I didn’t know or notice, but there have been times… I do agree with you though ME that sometimes viewers get too technical or pick things apart that they should just… Read more »

I think it does matter, actually. Both of the wives before Liz and Sarah’s mother are currently on the canvas. If they’re going to trash poor Jeff in his absence for the sake of a questionable plot twist, they can at least get his history right.

Might feel differently I guess if he’d been gone 25-plus years and the previous wives had similarly been gone for years. Or if it were inconsequential to the story. But Jeff DOES matter to this story, and so his history with wives is something they should get right.

How do you write a murder mystery and make it up as you go along with no discernible pay off? Asking for a friend….

The who is less interesting than the WHY. Guiding Light did these so much better….

Edge Of Night was a great murder mystery soap with suspenseful twist and turns written brilliantly by the late great Henry Sleazer for over a decade…this seems to be written by kindergarten children playing a game they never played before and too lazy to read how so they make up things as they go along!!!…By the way i miss Guiding Light!!!

I wish I’d been around for that. The death of GL was the warning sign… sadly.

I can’t imagine the WHY for this character being of interest, since they made it up on the fly. Remember those stupid music box murders, or the necktie murders or whatever that mess on OLTL was with Marcie, or the Y&R serial killer who snuffed Summers husband of ten seconds? There were no payoffs in any of these. The why was ‘so and so’ is nuts. Some why.

I’m expecting this to be of a similar quality.

The story has been nonexistent until now, when it has taken a turn for the dismal. Nonsense plot line with no impact other than irretrievably ruining one of the better actors on the canvas who could and should have a far more coherent history developed. But that is passe in this genre.

I swear, these days they must have absolutely zero expectations that the head writers work with any sense of story structure whatsoever. And looking at the ratings, I can only expect they won’t be hiring anyone better as the show sinks.

I always love Jimh’s, Tomas’s and Su0000’s comments although I don’t always agree with them. I know Su particularly doesn’t care for Jean and Shelley’s writing. However, I think they’ve done an incredible job. GH is the most well written and complex of all the soaps currently on air. I think we will find an interesting reason why Paul is the serial killer and in general, I think the story has been interesting certainly compared to the other soaps on air now. Y&R has the highest paid head writer in the history of daytime, a man they paid so much… Read more »

I agree with the unusual pairings as a good thing. And as I’m no fan Elizabeth in general I’ve warned to her for her less than holier than though ways with Jason s return. Her pairing with Franco has given her character extra depth and the actress seems to tear in to those scenes with genuine enthusiasm. I hope you’re right about Paul. But that story line feels undisciplined. And if Cassadine island was any indication of how they deliver a payoff… Thanks for your kind words. Civility seems to be in short supply. All my best. T

I love GH – it is my soap. I hate to have to say anything that isn’t positive, but this reveal is a contrivance and a let down. I read an article where the writers basically said that they changed the outcome of this story while already down the road. That is not good writing. A story should be planned and written in advance so that it is coherent and all of the beats can be played. You can’t make it up as you go along. That is why so many GH stories have major inconsistencies and so much back… Read more »

Not necessarily…rumor has it that Paul McCartney wrote “Yesterday” in just minutes.

In other words, sometimes something could just come to you, or you get an idea and change the whole direction of a story. There is no rule that you can’t change your mind.

Mister Media
Guest

I respectfully disagree. Records and books are only released for public consumption when they are deemed complete. McCartney didn’t release Yesterday under its original title, Scrambled Eggs, and then change his mind once the public had begun to consume the recording. The serial format is the only one where changes can be made on the fly, as the product is in the process of being consumed. You’re right – there’s no rule that you can’t change your mind. That would be fine if the story turned out to be consistent and logical. In this case, the story will be told… Read more »

I agree the actor who plays Paul is terrific. If this is his time to leave, I only hope it’s because he has been offered another job and would have to leave anyway. GH would be foolish to push out someone who can actually act. Maybe they can find a way to keep him like they have with Carlos/Jose and Dr. Finn/Dr. Clay.

I read the same article and was really struck at how the writers all but admitted that they just recently decided who the killer would be. There really was no mystery per se because the killings and attacks just appeared to be random after awhile, so it was impossible to gauge a motive and therefore guess at who the killer could be. I think somehow this will lead to Ava blackmailing Paul to release Julian, which will just add insult to injury.

Liz and Hayden are sisters what a shocker-NOT!…many of us already knew this…Paul really the killer-maybe its somehow connected to his often mention daughter Susan?….really no suspense here since day players were the only ones knocked off…also, i know its a soap but no person can just walk into the medical staff’s locker room when doors have electronic locks on the doors and staff have to punch it security numbers to get in…plus there are security cameras in all hospital-security guard would see someone tampering with the power outlets which would also be locked!!!!

I have been away for a while dealing with a sickness and death in the family ( mother passed at the age of 92)– so I missed a lot of soap watching, been trying to catch up– but I find it a bit of a leap to make Paul the killer– this is another prime example of a character that keeps getting changed to suit plot points, instead of writing plots to fit the characters. Unless Paul has an evil twin brother named Raul this is lamest murder mystery to hit GH since who shot Connie fiasco — and you… Read more »

dmr…I’m with you on this…I don’t think Paul is the murderer. I think the two “clues (cufflink and syringe in Monica’s office) are just too obvious to throw us off and make everyone jump to conclusions. But who is the real one? I have an idea but not ready to give it up yet. If you like Richard Burgi…Watching a rerun of Castle last week…episode called “Heartbreak Hotel.” Fun Elvis impersonator episode. Guest stars were Richard and Jeffrey Vincent Parise/Carlos, and they both played bad guys. Love how Castle brought in a lot of current and not-so-current soap actors.

Why does everyone keep neglecting to remember that Monica (then played by Patsy Rahn) was Jeff’s first wife. They were Mr. And Mrs. Intern at General Hospital in 1976. Certainly Heather of all people should know that since Jeff cheated on Monica with her. So, it should say, and the show should’ve also mentioned, that Naomi cheated with Jeff on his third wife. Heather would’ve been Jeff’s second wife.

I think it’s a giant leap to make Paul the killer. A good mystery or whodunit requires clues BEFORE the murders, not “fillers” and “reveals” AFTER the murders. And, besides, Paul is really a big part of the Q’s history–bad to make him a murderer. Badly plotted, to say the least. And anticlimactic. “The center does not hold.” Disappointing in so many ways. An important question: Paul has already gotten away with one murder; does this latest development mean that he will get away with these murders also? Then, in turn, does that mean that Julian will blackmail him and… Read more »

Yep…I predicted it and I love it! Win-win for me. Don’t want to lose Julian or Paul…but it can’t last because it seems Hayden will take the fall.

I was actually quite surprised with this reveal, but also disappointed. If they are trying to turn Paul into a full-out villain as opposed to just a shady guy whose actions are questionable (at best) then they’re doing a good job. But I really like Richard Burgi, and Paul is a character I’d like the show to spend more time developing. But it doesn’t seem like that will happen once he’s found out. I have a feeling his actions have something to do with his daughter, Susan. A couple weeks ago, during a scene with Tracy, she brought up how… Read more »

It is the weakest murder story in soap history, it is totally empty of mystery, intruge, intense drama and a plot.

There is nothing in the story to even resemble a serial killer mystery plot.. LOL

She went on to join GH for a few years and then moved to Y&R in 2013, replacing Josh Griffith, as co-head writer along with Shelly Altman. Shelly was also previously part of the GH writing team and joined Y&R prior to Jean, working under Griffith until his firing. When they co-wrote Y&R, the show became a major snooze fest.

Jordan, Andre, Hayden, Griffin, Claudette, Nathan, Valerie, Curtis, Sabrina, Joe, Nina, Franco, Darby, Amy and Kiki could all be killed off and I wouldn’t bat an eye. They are all useless characters with no ties to the canvas and do nothing for this show except drain the energy. Sure, some of these characters are portrayed by great actors, like Roger Howarth, Michelle Stafford, Rebecca Budig and Bree Williamson, and it’s such a shame that they got saddled with terrible characters.

It is credible. He shot Sonny, killed Sloane in cold blood and used Ava sexually. Now, Ava can blackmail him with what she knows, protect herself from Paul using his tape against her and probably get Paul to destroy Julian’s taped confession to Alexis.

On the other hand I don’t agree that it’s a ridiculous choice because barely anyone suspected him (well, at least not on this site).

I wouldn’t mind so much that Paul has no reason to kill these people if he were actually clearing out the canvas. I guess in Jelly’s mind, if Paul killed for revenge that makes him capable of being a serial extras killer. Should have played as though Franco thought that maybe he was the killer, maybe Kiki suspects Morgan, etc. Put some other ideas out there before the big reveal to make it more surprising. But surprises are not in the Jelly wheelhouse.

I was surprised for about ten seconds that it was Paul; not that I ever suspected him but because the writers made it up and Paul wasn’t being used. Hence, he was dispensable. I don’t think the impact will be as great to the audience as it seems to be to the writers. There has been very little connection between Paul or anyone else on the canvas for a long time now.

So this is how Julian is going to evade being punished for his numerous crimes.

She’s going to use that to blackmail him into flopping on the prosecution for Julian’s case, and he’s going to walk free. That’s what Jean meant when she said the reveal would have a ripple effect in other stories. This is absolute garbage. First, it’s incredibly contrived.

Well, I don’t agree Elizabeth. Julian is still a very popular character with many viewers and if they can find a way to keep Sonny, Franco, Ava and assorted other criminals I’m sure they’ll find a place for Julian. Why would any of us want only moral, stable or uncomplicated characters on a soap? I LIKED Julian as the loving husband bent on changing for Alexis. They decided to have him, like an addict that’s fallen off the wagon, succumb to his old ways. In his delusion he thought he could live a duplicitous life and stay happily married. The… Read more »

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.
