GENERAL HOSPITAL: Anna Returns & Tracy Overhears Paul's Horrifying Admission To Susan!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On Wednesay’s episode of General Hospital, it was a a welcome sight for fans of the series when Anna Devane showed up back at Kelly’s Diner and in Port Charles, thus welcoming the return of Finola Hughes.

After Anna catches-up with Griffin (Matt Cohen) and then Jordan (Vinessa Antoine) about how horrified she is that Julian Jerome (William deVry) was found not guilty of all charges in the murders of Duke Lavery and Carlos Rivera, she is more determined than ever to get justice.  When speaking with Jordan, Anna learns how Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn seemed “drunk” on the witness stand that helped throw the trial.  Anna decides she wants to meet up with Paul (Richard Burgi) and discuss the case, but she looks suspicious.

Anna heads to the Metro Court Hotel to see Paul, but when he is not there.  So, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) lets her into his room. She finds a file on the hospital murders, and then lo and behold … finds the cufflink that matches that of the killer!

Meanwhile, Paul is visiting his catatonic daughter Susan (Alina Pattra) on her birthday at the Celestial Height, the mental institution she is housed in.  Tracy (Jane Elliot) has followed him there, and has no idea what she is walking in on!  She overhears Paul tell Susan that he murdered Sloane and everyone else at General Hospital because of her … he did it all for her.  When Susan hears Tracy outside her room, she is rattled, and that is when Paul finds Tracy who is trying to get away.

A cat and mouse game ensues between a unglued and paranoid Paul, and Tracy who he has asked to dinner to help him cope with what has befallen Susan and how deeply affected he has been by Sabrina’s murder, which Tracy originally thought was because Sabrina was around the same age as Susan.

Tracy, who is feeling very threatened and hides it well, agrees to dinner, but first Paul takes her to his hotel room so he can finds his wallet.  Then, he says they aren’t going anywhere for dinner, and lock the door to his room!

So, are you glad Anna is back on the canvas? Will Anna save Tracy?  Will Paul confess all right to Tracy?  What do you think about what you know so far of the rationale for Paul killing so many patients at GH, having to do with his daugther, Susan? Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below!

I thought that was a really good episode…but like some dumb teen horror flick…the victim(Tracy) allows herself to be alone with the killer and she knows it…hopefully during the struggle Paul falls on that syringe he used on all his victims-thats justice!!!

When I first saw Susan on-air, it was a side view, and I thought the person was a young man in a blonde wig. I’m not kidding and I’m not trying to be cruel. I really did and the first thing I thought of was that it was a transgender storyline. Besides that, this storyline makes absolutely no sense. It’s an attempt at a quick rewrite-it seems. When the writers rewrote/recast Kyle Sloan, I didn’t like it. The Sloan character, before, showed no real signs of being an abuser. Then, all of the sudden, overnight, he was written as an… Read more »

mr…I kid you not. I thought the same thing…transgender. I actually was so convinced that I googled the actress to see if that was the case! I was hesitant to mention it…but seeing your post I had to respond. I agree with your thoughts on Sloane too. He was a by-the-book guy who wanted to one-up Anna at the beginning, then we discovered he was her protege, then they had an attraction, he helped cover up Carlos’/s shooting, seemed to have fallen in love with her, but then turned vengeful when she discarded him. I saw him as more of… Read more »

Hi CeeCee…you misunderstood me. I was saying it’s ridiculous how they demonized Sloane. Yeah, he was a combative guy when he first appeared…wanted to get Anna for some resentment he had when he worked as an underling for her in the WSB…but once they cut through that and started flirting there was definitely romantic potential. Rob Derringer is cute, but I thought the second actor was a better actor and though totally different type, good looking. Ridiculous to make him a rapist, but they had to give Paul a reason for his insanity. So, we’re all in agreement, we liked… Read more »

I know, Rebecca. I loved Sloane II. I would have loved to have seen him and Anna, not only as lovers, but also, as a kick-arse team. Ohhh, the possibilities!!!! Wonder Cop-Woman and Super Cop-Man. LOL. Well, why not?
I was agreeing with you…perhaps I did not make that clear; so typical of moi. I didn’t misunderstand. LOL.
As I said, my hand is faster than my brain. HaHa!!!! I hope I am coherent sometimes???? A little?
Ultimately, we say the same thing. Later.

I’m with you on this. This storyline makes no sense whatsoever and has obviously and blatantly been a write-as-you-go story. Richard Burgi & Jane Elliot have done some good work but the story stinks. Figures one day back in PC and Anna unravels what the stupid PCPD couldn’t figure out.

It was great to see Anna. She and Tracy are royalty! Anna should just bypass JorDUMB and do her own investigation. Speaking of dumb, that is NOT a word I would use in a sentence in regard to Tracy but how DUMB could you be to go ANYWHERE with Paul after she overheard that he committed all those murder! Claudette is just ONE major bust! GH is still trying to get Hayden and Nina attached to the show. We dont have any room for Claudette and her lies. She is here to stir the pot with Nathan and Maxie and… Read more »

Hey Tim…’JorDUMB’…LOVE IT…LOL!!!!! Oh…and as for that Claudette chick, I have DISLIKED HER since Day 1!!!!! I find Claudette to be BEYOND ANNOYING!!!!! Oh…and BTW, an idea: If Paul The Psycho isn’t done ‘killing’ yet, I think that BOTH JorDUMB and Claudette should be his next two victims. Just an idea……….

HA! Timm, I know, right?
Anna basically solved the case FOR JorDumb and spelled it all out for her as if she were a two year old. I would hate to see JorDumb participate on the game show,”Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader”? Please, put JorDumb (copyright, Timm, 2016) back on the sales floor of Forever Twenty-One.” I am sure she can merchandise the fall inventory with adeptness while snapping at her underlings that they need to push the scarves.
Yes, Claudette is not fitting–Just like Nina. And if they don’t fit, they must quit!!

agree Timmm —- Claudette storyline has a been a HUGE bust since day 1. The only reason I haven’t fast forwarded the last few days is because my ABC app screws up every time I do that.

Bree Williamson’s role of Claudette is pitiful. I really liked her as Jess on OLTL, but this role is useless and a waste of time. If someone wants to pull a former OLTL star over to GH, get out the big bucks and hire Erika Slezak. GH could use another big family in town. The Quartermains have turned into an illusion, except for Tracy, ever since the days of Edward, Lilah and Allan ended.

Bingo Max! Frank tries like hell to get his buddies from OLTL to stick on GH but really they haven’t. Roger is okay. I hate the role of Franco but it isnt Roger’s fault. Kiki is okay. When they recasted the role they should have just called her Lauren. More mature. Bree is very pretty and can act but there was no need for her or that god awful character! Same with Finn. It started off okay but now they dont know where to go with him. IF Nicholas comes back I want to see Hayden and Ava claw it… Read more »

I think Richard Burgi knocked it out of the park with his acting during the last few episodes! And of course Jane Elliott too! I for one enjoy being able to still have GH on to watch so I roll with the good and the bad. Glad Anna is back of course…she will be kicking butt and getting to bottom of things!! Overall enjoyed the whole show and was glad to be home to watch…usually have to watch on demand…but that’s OK as long as I can watch it. 🙂

Does Paul actually think that what he is disclosing to Susan makes her happy? Does she even focus/understand what he is telling her? What could the staff of GH have possibly done to elicit such drastic behavior from Paul? Is the hospital responsible for Susan’s ‘state’ of mind? Will Paul catch on to Tracy? Will he hurt her? Please, NO!! She is one tough cookie…..hiding her fear well….I would have fallen to pieces. LOL. What will Tracy do with this information? I did not expect it to happen this way. I had just assumed Tracy would figure it out, somehow….not… Read more »

@Jimh(leave it ti beaver). Hi, Jimmy, Remember when you said that Valentin was involved with Claudette? I don’t know if you were joking, but we had a good laugh. Now, it seems you were right…so, I will give you credit. You also suggested Charlotte may be Valentin’s, as well. I think she is, regardless of the paternity test. Now, way back when’Dr. O said Nathan’s father was much, much worse than Victor Cassadine? I knew not who this guy was until Shay said his name. So, both Shay and I surmised it was Valentin. Full circle, Jimmy. Furthermore, the reason… Read more »

Sorry C…i misread Charlotte as Claudette…i lost my glasses and have been using a pair from 25 years ago-i kept them-they were my first pair!…we knew Claudette would somehow be tied to Valentin…he probably will get free…kidnap ‘Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte’…Claudette and Nathan will go looking for her…they end up in some bug infested bedroom of some seedy hotel belonging to the Cassidine…Maxi shows up seeing them in bed together and get the wrong idea-she gets kidnapped too…you know the story-lol

Awwww, that’s ok, Jimmy. You’re fine. I lose my glasses and my cell many times a day. I can ‘call’ my cell, but I can’t call my glasses. So, I have two more pair. But, guess what???? I lose those too. So, I wear my contacts until I locate, at least, one pair.
Yes, I know the story, along with everyone else.

Paul’s explanation for why he committed all those murders defied logic–even the actor looked confused as he delivered those lines. It seems to me that the writers were making it up as they went along. Paul: “I killed this one because she didn’t help my Susie Q when she was at the half way house and I killed this one because he put onions on her In N Out Burger when she specifically requested that there be no onions. Then I killed this one because she took cuts in front of my Susie Q at the dollar store. Nobody hurts… Read more »

Agree. These have been pointless murders about people we don’t know involving no discernible motive. It feels false from the start. So they slap together the worst summation since the dreaded KILLING CLUB KILLER. (I expected Cady McClain to wander the hospital corridors holding a plate of pancakes.) Paul’s explanation, his denouement, fell flat in the writing. Worse still was the Big Case of Stoopid Tracy drank before she met up with Paul. Such a good actor. Absolutely pointless story. Oh well.

Hi Sweetie, on to another subject. Replying to OLTLivers wanting their ex-stars on GH. Putting the shoe on the other foot and having GH cancelled and not One Life. Yes, I would LOVE to have ex-GHers on OLTL. I get it. I feel the reason I reacted and criticized OLTL fans is because Frank brings these actors on and they dont mesh with other characters. They are starting to settle Hayden in with the Webbers but it has taken forever! Nina, I love Michele but Nina is a square peg. Maybe if Valentin comes back, she and he will click.… Read more »

Just because I looove certsin actors/actresses, does not mean I agree with the role. As you so, specifically pointed out: Michelle Stafford. I could say the same about Billy Miller as Jason; and, ironically, about Jason Thompson as Billy. Then, there’s Gina Tognoni. This is a completely different Phyllis.

I’m ecstatic to see her and have her follow up on this nutso trial and why Julian Jerome is not paying any consequences for his actions whatsoever. But she is wrong that they cannot try him again for his crimes against Duke. Julian is the one who put Duke in Turkish prison for so many years and was in cahoots with Faison who wanted Duke’s memories to ensnare Anna. So let’s try him again, Anna!

This is a show that has a severely bloated cast!! There could bave been several victims that would have had some impact on the overall fabric of the show. The show had a built in surefire tearjerker as Bryan Craig is leaving. He could have been a victim that would have cut to the core of the show. Beyond that…there are at least 10 other characters of lesser importance that could have been eliminated. I hate when soaps craft a murder mystery not having a clue who the killer is, or the motivation, or who the victims will be. It… Read more »

Great post, Dylan. It’s rather irksome to realize that GH lost Tyler Christopher (he said he wanted to come back) after playing Nikolas Cassadine for twenty years. And yet, TPTB were aggressively recruiting new pets like Michelle Stafford and Brie Williamson and then later trying to make these puzzle pieces fit in the wrong puzzle through some awful and forced writing.

I’m enjoying Paul being the murderer, but given the recent past on GH, he’s probably going to get off “Scott-Free” and continue to be our D.A. There are a few things that I am hoping for with GH and ABC. 1. Give Anna a kick butt story…if you’re still interested in bringing back old themes, let’s get an Asian Quarter mystery/ adventure plot going. 2. If live shots are now a possibility, please please move away from the park that looks like a deserted brown field. The stucco homes of LA really aren’t Port Charles. 3. Roger H, the man… Read more »

Richard Burgi’s performance has been amazing, he is a talented actor, but the story is absurd. OK, today we heard the full explanation of why Paul killed each victim–except for Bobbi and Lucas, who survived. But several of his victims were already patients at GH when killed. Did he poison or inflict them somehow to get them to the hospital, then kill them after they were admitted? So his goal was not only to kill people who hurt Susan but also to ruin GH ? I expect Anna and Dillon and Jordan to rush in with guns ablaze before Paul… Read more »

LOL. Guns ablaze, indeed, Anne.
Absurd is the perfect word describing this ridiculous story.
So, did I understand it correctly? Paul, who seems compos mentis, experiences a short circuited brain at will? …..because of his delusional and fallacious thought processes.
I think he made his daughter this way. LOL. To think that by killing those, whom are supposedly responsible for he ‘condition’, will heal Susan is insanely bizarre.
This writing just doesn’t make sense, albeit Paul is hitting every mark of exemplar acting. I love watching Richard at work.

He probably has a brain tumor like Franco had or some other illness and be set free…next week Anna, who will arrest Paul today ‘Charlie’s Angels Style’, will be at his hospital bedside after he is instantly cured, realizes she loves Paul who asks her to marry him, and they will marry right there in GH in the same room where he murdered Sabrina!!!-lol

I want Erika Slezak, ex Viki OLTL to come to Y&R or GH. Erika can play Dina Mergeron Abbott. Ashley and Jack need there mom back. I loved the original actress’s Marla Adams she is a terrific actress, but Erika Slezak is a better actress. Imagine Erika and Jess Walton together, wow that would be cool to see. Also Erika can play a new role on Gh or recast Audrey Hardy with Erika Slezak. I want to see Erika back on Daytime, she is missed.

I agree. I would love all the OLTL cast coming on the GH stage, Claudio. But, you’re right, Erika is special…love her so much.

I think Erika would surpass everyone’s expectations…..fans, actors, writers, and producers alike.

Erika could go to Y&R as Katherine’s unknown daughter-or is she a con…who challenges Jill over the Chancelor Estate and makes a play for Colin-sort of a reverse when Jill made a play for Katherine’s husband Philip many years ago…both women end up sharing the mansion-let the fireworks begin!!!!

Yes Cee Cee, I was one of the posters who said no more OLTL people. My reason is two fold. And please, I have nothing against that show or AMC. Number one, use GH vets first! All our beloved characters get pushed into a closet! Number two, bring in OLTL people BUT have a freaking story for them! This Claudette lady, VERY pretty BUT she adds nothing to the show. Finn, I like him but he is at a stand still now. I just want the show to flow evenly. No hard feelings Luv!

@Timmm. I hear you, my dearest friend. But, we are talking about apples and oranges. I do agree that vets should be used, and be in their rightful place. However, some may not want to come back. From what I understand, for example, Erika is done…..she is well ensconced in New York. I also agree that TPTB engage ‘new’ actors to see how said actors are received…..I suspect they go about this without a specific storyline in mind. Ergo, Claudette.

Claudio, love your idea. Yes, Erika would be fabulous on Y&R and yes, it would be great to see her go toe to toe with Jill which might strike an affinity with how she used to combat her old nemesis Dorian on OLTL.
Y&R’s production, writing, set design and acting is so good now that it’s worthy of Erika’s talent.
I would not want her on GH–GH has been pretty much of a trainwreck for these last few years.

We’re talking about soap actors in a soap genre. No one has to give up anything. If a viewer likes and misses an actor, he/she has every right to express an opinion about it and the actor has every right to find work on another soap. As a recast or a new character. I agree…would love to see Erica Slezak on either show. Not sure about as Audrey…Isn’t the actress still alive?

Anna and Tracy! Add Laura to the mix and you have three of the greatest soap characters ever! I love that Tracy has gotten so much story sans Luke. She has shined and really become a great character woven into many stories and character’s lives. I think there is a lot of potential for Laura with Kevin too. Now lets get Anna a great story, let Julian get what’s coming to him and let Anna move on to a new adventure and love interest. The three of these ladies have never phoned it in and they should own the show!

Ms Hughes’ presence alone gives this dreadful storyline a much needed lift. Indeed, I’d be content watching this terrific actor bake cookies, knit, clip coupons, whatever. GH is stronger with her onscreen. More Anna please!

Long live General Hospital!

What. A. Mess. A “mystery” predicated on an off-camera assault involving a bunch of characters we’ve never seen or care about. Why would Paul just blurt out a murder confession with the door to Susan’s room wide open? Paul killed Dr. Mayes (a neurologist) for botching Susan’s rape kit. Why was a neurologist performing an exam on a rape victim? Do the writers know what a neurologist does? Why is Tracy being written as an imbecile who would get in a car with a killer and allow herself to be driven to an isolated location? As for Paul not being… Read more »

I hear Paul and Tracy are going to be in “Friday the 13th Part 50!”

Oh, Alan, if the subject weren’t so serious, I would laugh.
Dr. Mayes was so insignificant to me, I never truly paid attention to his ‘specialty’. Great point, and thank you for bringing it up.
I must say, what would a neurologist be doing during a pelvic exam? Assist?
I don’t understand these illustrious writers, sometimes.

Alan…as usual, you make LOADS AND LOADS OF SENSE!!!!! Thank You. It makes me wonder as to what’s next…a podiatrist performing brain surgery?!?!? BEYOND INSULTING!!!!!

Have a good one, Alan.

Amen to you Claudio, yes yes Erika Slezak would be perfect for the role of Dina Abbott. Erika deserves to be back on our screens again. Man the lady can act, she has won 6 Daytime Emmys. Also Claudio we also need Robin Strasser ex Dorian Lord back on tv too. Robin can go to Days as the new Vivian Alamain. I love Louise Sorel, but I would be fine with a recast.

I could be mistaken, but didn’t Louise Sorel once play Dorian Lord on OLTL also?

While I applaud their attempt to wrap up this lame serial killer story– they are not doing a very good job of it— First off isn’t it extremely fortunate that all the people on Paul’s list just happened to end up being in the hospital at or close to the same time— lucky break for him— Also, how does Bobbie figured into it? They explained how everyone had a connection to Susan except Bobbi— Also Anna is obtaining all this evidence against Paul illegally– and tell me what hotel gives anyone access to someone else’s room to leave a note–… Read more »

Thanks but at this point anyone probably could write better stories than this– the trouble is they are making it as they go— a writer should have a destination in mind and write to get there– unfortunately they did what Ron C did with Fluke they change course halfway through the story and no matter how much they tried to connect all the previous plot points to the change in direction, it never works– it didn’t work with Fluke and it didn’t work with this serial killer story, which I believe was supposed to be about harvesting organs on the… Read more »

Ok…I barely EVER criticize the story with a few exceptions. This is one if those exceptions. As a few have pointed out, WHY would Tracy go ANYWHERE with Paul after she overheard his confession to Susan. So, she winds up in the room with him and he’s rambling on and on… I’m thinking, okay, she’s playing him. She’s going to wait to make her move and get out of there. But no, she listens with a sympathetic ear and still I’m thinking…part of her plan. But lo andy behold, after hearing him talk like a psychomkiller both at the facility… Read more »

I try to be positive about GH but I’m increasing disappointed many of the storylines…serial hospital killings and Paul; Claudette anything; Morgan “relapsing” through no fault of his own; Ava and Julian getting away with murder…again; Sabrina killing; Michael giving up yet another baby to questionable people; Sonny popping up as Godfather to everything Port Charles with no actual story anymore; GH shut down with seemingly no sense of urgency in the community, and it is after all the name of the show; and sorry, not a Liz/Franco fan. But not all downers…thank goodness for Laura and Kevin, and Anna… Read more »

You forgot the nightmare that is Hamilton Finn– who has been dying from this mystery disease for so long that I no longer care– if I have to watch him shoot up one more time I will scream– either cure him or let the character die already– lets move on. I am sure tptb on GH can find yet another role for Michael Easton– LOL

Jane Elliott did her usual great job, but this storyline makes no sense. So much of “GH” is a mess right now.

If Paul has been avenging Susan’s rape and mistreatment since he returned to Port Charles: What was his reason for shooting Sonny last year? What role did Bobbie and Lucas play in Susan’s mistreatment?

GH’s Nancy Lee Grahn Shares Excerpt From Her Upcoming Memoir

In celebration of beginning her 27th year as Alexis Davis on General Hospital, two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, decided to mark the occasion by revealing to her longtime fans an excerpt from her upcoming memoir due out in 2023.

Taking to her official Facebook page, Nancy shared the excerpt starting with contained some of the back-history of her soap opera alter-ego : “I play the role of Alexis Davis. I am a public defender, prosecutor, personnel injury, civil, malpractice, tax and family attorney. I am the bastard child of Mikos Cassadine who died after being thrown into his own weather machine which he designed to freeze the world. My mother, Kristen Bergman was a famous opera singer whose throat was slit by my father’s wife, Helena. Unhappy with the turn of events, I hurled my frail 75 year old stepmother off a five hundred foot parapet slamming her onto jagged rock only for her to walk away unscathed. Even more determined, I shoved her off a thousand foot cliff into the frigid subzero ocean. Helena not only survived unscathed, she apparently scaled 1000 feet up the cliff and continued to wreak havoc on Port Charles.”

Nancy closed the excerpt with some special acknowledgements: “Always so grateful to have an ongoing contract, my own parking space and people I’ve never met who come up to me regularly and tell me how much younger I look in person. It’s a gift that I have been able to and still get to do what I love to do for such a gloriously long time. I love my job the most because it is the job that gave me the security I needed to greenlight Kate as a single mother, raise her while being able to give her the things I dreamed of giving her, put her through school all the way through college, and will hopefully allow me to spoil my grandchildren. The enormous love & gratitude I have for ABC and Disney for allowing me the privilege of working for them is immeasurable. But the real truth is without the support from all of you, this day would not be what it is. As always, I see you and thank you.”

Make sure to read the entire excerpt.  Now let us know, are you looking forward to what Nancy will share in her upcoming memoir? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Diane Poised to Be Attacked by the ‘Hook’; Elizabeth Knew Finn’s Late Wife, Reiko?

On Friday’s cliffhanger of General Hospital, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) looks to be the next victim of the mysterious ‘hook’.  We won’t know till Monday how it plays out, but things are not looking good for the legal eagle in a preview for the airshow.

In story, Diane dropped by the garage that Brando worked at, looking for Sasha (Sofia Mattson).  At first, she bumps into Sonny (Maurice Benard) who is not pleased with Diane for trying to take him down on the witness stand during Nina’s hearing.  She shares she was helping her clients Michael and Willow as best she could.  Sonny says it was personal for him and he can’t forget what happened.

Next, Diane tells Sasha that she’s serving as her interim lawyer since Martin is unavailable and is there to discuss her guardianship. Sasha is scared that she’ll wind up behind bars now that Brando is gone.  Diane assures Sasha she will file a continuance to keep the process going to keep her out of jail. Diane asks where the guardianship papers may be, and Sasha tells her to check Brando’s office.

Dex (Evan Hofer), who is looking suspicious (but it has to be a red-herring, right?) is going to take Sasha home per Sonny’s orders, but Sonny also tells Dex to lock up when Diane is finished with her business.

Later, Diane in the dark, goes to Brando’s office to find the guardianship papers. Next, a figure appears in the doorway with the hook.  This time the ‘Hook’ looks to be of smaller stature leading many on social media that the person behind the violence could be Esme.

In other developments, Elizabeth Webber’s (Rebecca Herbst) convoluted storyline, just got even more convoluted.  Liz looks at the photo she’s drawn and suddenly has a flashback revealing the woman’s face at the bottom of the stairwell.  She then tells Finn (Michael Easton) that after her recent session with Kevin, she recalls seeing the woman’s face. Conveniently, Finn was just talking about his late wife, Reiko with Gregory (Gregory Harrison).  So, when Liz talks to Finn, she sees a woman’s face on Finn’s phone.

Courtesy/ABC

Finn explains that the picture is of his late wife, Reiko.  He tells Liz he is working on a case that reminded him of Reiko, and he mentions being in the Mariana Islands with her. That makes Liz frantic and she decides to leave. Next, she heads home, where she locates a photo of her and her sister, Sarah. The photo is titled, “Elizabeth and Sarah, Mariana Islands, 1997.”

So, do you think Diane will perish or survive the attack by the ‘Hook’? Who is the ‘Hook”? What on earth is going on with Liz’s storyline? Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below.  But first, vote in our latest ‘Michael’s Poll’ below by voting on which character is the culprit behind all of the bloodshed?

Johnny Wactor on Brando’s GH Demise: “I Have Been Blown Away By The Reaction From The Fans, I Had No Idea That You Guys Cared So Much About My Character”

It’s been an emotional week for General Hospital viewers following the death of Brando Corbin; which meant that actor Johnny Wactor has wrapped his run on the ABC daytime drama series.

On Thursday, Wactor shared his ‘thanks’ to all the loyal GH fans who took the journey with him and his on-screen alter-ego via a video post on his Instagram account.

Johnny expressed: “It’s been a couple days since the demise of Brando Corbin in Port Charles as we know it.  And I have to tell ya, I have been so blown away by the reaction from the fans.  I had no idea that you guys cared so much about my character. I’m so grateful for the outpour of questions and support. I’ve always said, that the fans of General Hospital are the greatest fans in the world and I truly believe that and this is just further evidence of that.”

Social media was abuzz when Brando suddenly died following successful surgery after being attacked by the ‘hook’.  Some fans felt Wactor’s presence will be sorely missed; while others shared that they felt Brando was not a necessary character.

Wactor took all of the comments like a champ and in his video message added: “Whether you were excited to see Brando Corbin killed off, or outraged and have questions, man, I’m just so lucky to have been on this show, truly.”

As he concluded his ‘thank you’s’, Johnny let GH viewers know he does have some other projects that you will see him in very soon, sharing: “Thank you so much for letting me bring Brando Corbin to life.  Thank you for caring, and thank you for all the support and the well-wishes for my future endeavors, whether that’s back in Port Charles at some point, or another show, or other films … which there’s some coming.”

Lastly, Johnny added, “I’ll miss ya, and you enjoy the rest of the week.”

Watch Wactor’s heartfelt message below.

So, where do you stand with the decision to kill off Brando? Glad the character is off the canvas, or sad to see him go? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
