GENERAL HOSPITAL PROMO: Brando’s Not The Only Victim of The ‘Hook’

Photo: ABC

This week on ABC’s General Hospital, the residents of Port Charles wonder, where will the killer dubbed the ‘Hook’ strike next?

Here’s what we know. Last week, from all appearances the ‘Hook’ killed Oz Haggerty at the docks.  Now in the latest promo, a body bag is wheeled away by paramedics from the scene of the crime.

Meanwhile, friends and loved one gather to mourn and say goodbye to Brando Corbin (Johnny Wactor).  Previously, following her attack, Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) identified the ‘Hook’ to be a woman.

With Esme Prince (Avery Pohl) lurking and back in town, it certainly makes her a prime suspect and making her look quite suspicious that she could be the serial killer! But is she?

Watch the preview for the action on this week’s GH below.

At this point, who would you place the smart money on that will turn out to be the ‘hook’ serial killer? Comment below.

It really needs to be Esme. I understand that we all love Avery Kristen Pohl but I am so tired of cockamamie made up out of thin air (and worse) endings to murder mysteries on soaps. She is the only logical solution to these murders and if they try to foist some ridiculous murderer on us with some dopey reason for having done it…. just don’t! (and it better not be Rory!).

It won’t be Esme. She’s signed a three-year contract, so unless the show becomes General Hospital: Pentonville, it’s going to have to turn out to be someone else.

Actually, I don’t love Avery Pohl, she’s a good actress, however, by no means is she brilliant like the powerhouses such as Maura West, Genie Francis and Fiona Hughes. And, Esme is NOT the ‘Hook’ serial killer.

She is a YOUNG actress. Give her time and she will be in the same company of those three veteran actresses you mentioned.

Where is Monica? The character has not appeared for months.

According to Nancy Lee Grahn, Leslie Charleson had a fall early in the year. There’s been no updates in the past few months. They had a recast for one episode back in February but have removed Monica from story pending LC’s recovery.

She’s very missed on the canvas. Here’s hoping we get to see her on screen in time for Thanksgiving pizza.

Thank all that’s unholy that Portia – a doctor, not a cop – finally figured out the obvious. The hookings are about Trina, NOT Sonny!

The hooking of Oz, who had nothing at all to do with Sonny was what finally clued her in, but it really should have been considered all along. Brando being the accidental 2nd victim (and first fatality) is what threw them off. What is NOT realistic here, is that neither Curtis or Jordan (both “seasoned” detective types) ever questioned whether Brando was the intended victim until now…. and they finally realize that Joss was the intended target that night.

Now all they need to do is arrive at the obvious conclusion for who their suspect is…. a woman who has a vendetta against Trina. And that’s a short list……

Only thing shocking is that Ava did NOT clue in yet. When she jumped in that elevator with a horrified look on her face, I thought she might have pieced it together.

Well, it looks like it isn’t Esme, but who is it then? Someone with an endless supply of the poison used on the hook. Probably someone out of left field as was mentioned before, which will make for a very unsatisfying and disappointing result.

Esme is not the hook killer. They want us to think that. I think it’s Sasha. Wild theory but definitely dramatic.

Sasha was in Charlie’s when Brando was attacked. It’s not her.

Why have tptb closed off the docks where the hook has been attacking? Or at least have law enforcement patrolling the docks 24/7? And why would any intelligent person go walking there anyway?

Rose…I really do proof read my emails. But correction to above…”Why “haven’t” the tptb closed off the docks, etc.”

I Think it’s Nell and she is not dead.

Nelle is certainly capable of being a psycho serial killer. But she doesn’t fit the list of victims, so far. Maybe she would have gone after Joss…. who was the intended second target. But why would she go after Ava or Diane? And she didn’t even know that other dude… Oz or whatever his name was.

There have been no hookings since Esme’s been locked up in Castle Cassadine. Could be a coincidence… but she’s the logical suspect with a connection to all of the victims. Only other person who fits that pattern is Rory… and since Diane was sure the hooker was a woman, that lets Rory off the hook (no pun intended)…. unless he’s a secret cross dresser or something.

Wouldn’t be the first cross-dressing killer on GH, if that were the case, but you would have to go all the way back to the “Left Handed Boy” storyline for that one.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Ava Receives a Haunting Letter About Austin’s Murder

On Thursday’s November 30th episode of General Hospital, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) is on the case of who shot Austin (Roger Howarth) and pays a visit to Ava Jerome (Maura West) at Wyndemere.

Dante asks Ava when was the last time she saw Dr. Austin Gatlin-Holt. She asks why and what is going on with Austin? Dante tells her he’s dead, and assumes she must already know, especially given her non-reaction to the news.

Ava tells Dante she was last with Austin two days ago at her gallery. When he questions her if security footage can back that up, that would then give her an alibi. However, Ava explains she left out the back, and that the surveillance camera has not been working. Since the murder happened in Pautauk, Dante tells Ava they will want to question her.


She responds that a lot of people in town knew Austin from Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and on. However, Dante points out that Ava was the only one that was kidnapped by Mason (Nathanyael Grey). Ava says she will have her lawyer ready.

As Dante exits, Ava looks through her unopened mail. She finds a letter addressed to her and it says inside on note paper, “You’re welcome.” But that’s not all, inside the letter is a polaroid of Austin’s dead body.


Also in story, Molly (Kristen Vaganos) has a meltdown when she has to start the finding a surrogate process all over again, and is found crying on a park bench by her sister, Kristina (Kate Mansi). Will this be the conversation where Molly will take up Kristina on her initial offer to carry the child for her and TJ (Tahj Bellow)?


In another key moment, James thinks Cody (Josh Kelly) would make a great big brother, which then gets Felicia (Kristina Wagner) flashing back to when Cody told Mac that it turns out Mac is not his bio-dad. Felicia senses something is not right. Is she finally on to the fact that Cody lied to Mac? Stay tuned.


So, who do you think sent the letter to Ava about killing Austin? Is it Nikolas? Cyrus? Mason? Could it be Ava herself, who doesn’t remember she did the deed, or could it be someone else? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

GH’s Scarlett Fernandez on Charlotte’s Mindset: “She Completely Believes That Anna is Out to Get Her”

Once returning to General Hospital, Scarlett Fernandez (Charlotte) has been involved in a juicy storyline, where an impressionable young Charlotte Cassadine has been persuaded almost brain-washed, if you will, via a letter from Victor Cassadine from the grave.

In it, he implores Charlotte to keep Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) away from her father, Valentin (James Patrick Stuart). So, taking that to heart, Charlotte burned Anna’s house down and much more.  When she gets shot by Anna after intruding into the super spy’s apartment, the stakes get even higher.

Valenin had figured out that Charlotte was stalking Anna and trying to do her harm, but did not inform Anna. That has caused a major rift in their relationship.  Meanwhile, Laura (Genie Francis) and Valentin confronted Charlotte after she returned home from the hospital.

In her latest interview with Soap Opera Digest, Fernandez shared on getting to play this kind of story: “It’s definitely an honor because when I was little, I was getting storylines, but this is just crazy! I kind of feel like I’m treated like an adult on the show now, almost, and it’s just been great. I’ve been given great stuff and the fact that Frank (Valentini, EP, GH) and all of his co-workers have trusted me has just been an amazing feeling.”

With everyone confronting Charlotte on her dirty deeds against Anna, and her denying it, Fernandez weighs-in on just where Charlotte is at this point in her mind: “I think that she definitely realizes that the people around her don’t believe her and don’t trust her and I think that really frustrates her because she completely believes that Anna is out to get her. So that (the adults in her life don’t believe her) is hard for her.”

There is also burgeoning chemistry between Jake (Hudson West) and Charlotte! So what does Fernandez think of that? Is she using him, or could be the beginning of young love? She expressed: “I think it’s definitely a little bit of both. I think that maybe she and Jake are partners-in-crime, but I also think that Jake has or will have a good influence on her. She just really needs someone to be there for her and for her to be able to confide in and I think that he has been that.”

So, have you been enjoying Scarlett’s performances as a troubled Charlotte? Would you like to see Jake and Charlotte have a ‘date’? Do you think Charlotte needs deprogramming to help her out of the grip that Victor has on her; as she believes Anna is the cause of all the trouble that will come her father’s way, if she doesn’t find a way to get rid of her? Weigh-in via the comment section below.
