GENERAL HOSPITAL: Silas Is Murdered! Whodunit?

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

It was the end of the line for Dr. Silas Clay on Friday’s cliffhanger of an episode on General Hospital! 

And that means also the end of the line (although we suspect some flashbacks are in order) for fan favorite Michael Easton (Silas) who is out at the ABC daytime drama series. To open up the story with a major murder plot, following the on-screen exit this week of legacy series star, Anthony Geary Luke Spencer), GH murdered Silas.  Now we have the suspects who are mounting, and everyone looking guilty and needing drinks after committing the act, or stumbling upon the scene.

One thing was clear, Silas got a knife to the back!  The person immediately looking most guilty is his ex-wife Nina Clay (Michelle Stafford), who found out earlier in the episode from Franco (Roger Howarth) that it was Silas who kidnapped baby Avery and pinned the crime on her to help Ava survive her cancer with Avery’s bone marrow.  At the end of Friday’s airshow, Nina was holding the knife in her hand sitting over Dr. Clay’s lifeless body as Franco happened upon the scene.  But might he have gotten there earlier himself …  even though he followed Nina out of the hospital knowing she was going to confront Silas?

Then there is Denice AKA Ava (Maura West), who we know will kill anyone to keep her identity a secret, and to avoid prison time for murdering Connie Falconeri!  With Silas armed with the truth of her true identify and complicit in resurrecting her in the first place, and furious to find Ava in bed with Morgan (Bryan Craig), he calls their daughter Kiki (Haley Erin) saying he has to talk to her ASAP!  Ava clearly does not want her scam to come to light!

Elsewhere, Morgan who told Denice he has to stop Silas from telling Kiki that he is cheating on her … made his move to shut Silas up once and for all.   Later, we find Morgan very discombobulated at the Metro Court bar by Michael (Chad Duell).  Morgan is clearly shaken up.  Did he stab Silas?

Watch the final moments of Friday’s episode after the jump and a preview pick-up scene for Monday featuring: Michelle Stafford, Roger Howarth and Easton.  Then weigh-in:  Whodunit?  Who killed Silas Clay?  Any of the obvious suspects … or you think it was someone else like Ric (Rick Hearst) or Madeline (Donna Mills)?  Be our private investigators and name your top suspect and why in the comment section below!

She didn’t do it, too easy. The serial killer did. Of course Morgan is a Coninthious and they NEVER pay for any thing. In the back no less. With all garbage this show has, we could have kept Silas and killed a lot of others Morgan ,Nina, Franco , Dense/ava. Half the show needed the knife in the back. I didn’t mind Silas. I doubt it was Sonny he shoots everyone in the face in cold blood.

Morgan ‘done’ it….of course, ‘they’ want us to believe either he or Nina did it.
I am glad, in a way, I won’t be here to witness another mysterious trail. Why did ‘they’ have to go and kill Silas?

CeeCee
CeeCee

PS……Hmmmm! I’m thinking that perhaps Michael Easton will not, completely, disappear from the GH landscape.
He may return as Stephen/Caleb, the Vampire. Is he truly dead? Was a stake driven through his heart? Did the power of the sun evaporate him? Was he doused with Holy Water? Caleb vanished and Dr. Clay was born, no? Never say never!!

CeeCee kill off the one person no one really cares about canvas wise..and so…Denise/Ava again..you have all these powerhouse actors and they are wrote into a corner and then thrown into a who cares whodunnit into November sweeps silly story. Either RC did this out of spite or the new team is reworking story already and we see what this will lead to. ELLEN WHEELER EP..RIGHT NOW..ASAP..give her free reign and a workable budget.

Morgan killed Silas. To bAd kiki will nEvEr know the truth about Ava ad Morgan and that stinks

Leslie…I’m truly beginning to wonder why I watch the show anymore. While I appreciate su”s undying loyalty to Ron, the writers have done a woefully poor job writing for the likes of Michael, Roger, Michelle, etc. I won’t even revisit Fluke anymore. And I just haven’t seen the “fun” in GH for a long time.

SINCE THEY GOT RID OF SILAS GH IS DONE!!!!WILL NEVER WATCH IT AGAIN

I did not realize there was a serial killer in Port Charles, Janet. He’s over yonder, in Genoa City, no? Now, I’m getting confused. LOL.
Did MadMaddie, Nina, Ava or Morgan have time to do the deed? Each one of them was engaged doing something else; either talking to each other or with Franco. I think Nina found Silas on the floor with either the knife already embedded in his back and pulled it out (which does not sound feasible….she’d need a strong stomach to muster that); or she picked it up from the floor.
Franco will wipe off the fingerprints and put the knife back on the floor. No? Not good? I tried!!
The best guess is Rick. He somehow found out Silas held all the cards …..had to be eliminated. While everyone else was seen on stage, where was Rick? By the way, how did he or MadMaddie manage to get an exact replica of the baby blanket? How did they know what it looked like? I am not being facetious, I am curious.
I have said it a million times…MadMaddie is the crazy viper, not Nina. I wonder if Miss Cruella De Vil is her kin? And here I thought Liesl was the worst. Well, who to choose, really! I wish Donna Mills had been written as a normal, concerned mother….I love her acting…especially when she and Maxie go at it. I really enjoyed their scene together.
MadMaddie attempted to convince whomever that Nina had been a rebel child with mental issues. This thought was instilled in Nina’s brain…over and over. Lord only knows what Cruella did to her! This has been the woman’s lifetime chant, in order to get her withered hands on Nina’s money. I have also said that the mother and daughter relationship holds more than one dark nightmare for Nina, as a child, and then, a young woman, who spent half her life in a coma….thanks to MOMMY DEAREST.

….All packed….and, I can’t sleep. This site is addictive…hard to let go….like my coffee. Gee, Mr. Fairman, thanks a lot….LOL.
I hope I can get on Hulu and catch a couple of episodes when possible……Vaarwel!

Emmerdale in the U.K. years ago had the passenger jetliner destroy and devastate the village..August 3rd Charity and Cain’s daughter Debbie has her wedding reception crashed into by a HELICOPTER!!!..The whole Cameron after causing multiple deaths WoolPack scenes..he was electrocuted in the flooding basement after trying to kill Chas and Debbie after killing Carl with a brick..and killing Genny after he caused her car crash and soulessly walked up to the wreckage and covered her nose and mouth till she suffocated..MY U.K. SOAPS ARE THE BOMB..poor Ian’s tour de force on EastEnders after Lucy was killed…oh and on and on..sorry had to get it in..LOL

So sad that they called Ellen Wheeler the doomsday slayer of GL..remember the death of that character by Phillip..and the shot of that cliff and the cell phone ringing and echoing..Ellen Wheeler knew what soaps needed..viewers resisted and the end of all our shows were heralded..now we have the same writers who wrote shows into a box writing them into a cup of soup container..really no room for mistakes or loss of viewers..if the networks want their shows they will buck up and change the genre or just throw a whole bunch of returning actors into implausible situations and throw the death of Caroline Brady on top of it for sympathy factor..i know where all that’s heading otherwise Sami wouldn’t even come back..and after that’s all said and done..no doze to watch further episodes. Bet this remark won’t make it on the blog. LOL

I love Coronation Street…right now there is a widow who is a hoarder…you wont see that kind of realism in American soaps…UK soaps are the best…their plots are far more realisitic, entertaining, and still escapism from our everday life…character driven too!!!

Torqumada
Torqumada

Jimi, agree about Coronation Street. In particular the kid storylines, which I FF in American soaps, are incredibly well written.

Coronation is very different in tone but really well done.

Wish they hadn’t killed Silas I followed him over from OLTL ditto Roger Howarth.
Morgan and Nina need to go but,. I think Madeline will be the killer .

Dee calise
Dee calise

I think it’s none of them it going to be a shocker when we find out.

Matilda
Matilda

I think it will be one of them, probably Madeline. She’s expendable and Donna Mills just may not want to keep coming back. If it is Ric and they kill another popular vet, people are really going to be pissed. At some point, TPTB just can’t be that tone deaf.

The funny thing about this murder mystery is that it basically involves all new characetrs, actors, Cartini creations. Nina, Franco, Ava, Madeline, Kiki, Morgan.

Nina, Ava, Madeline, Kiki; all new creations.
Franco basically a new creation as he was recreated by RC and played by a new actor.
Morgan, who’s been sorased and basically thrown in with this crew from the beginning.

It just shows you how isolated this whole crew is and how they never really have been integrated onto the canvas.

Torqumada
Torqumada

Guiding Light typically got the murder storylines right while ABC has a terrible history on these .

I hope it’s not MadMaddy. That scene with Maxie was the best. Imagine Tracy and Maddie going toe to toe! Sweet Jeebus that would be swell.

There is an abundance of great talent on this show. I hope the new writers realize that and start writing to the level of this talent.

Let’s wrap this up quickly and get on with advancing some plotlines and characters.

What a shame I could think of several characters that could of be killed off that are not as great as actor as Michael. GH just didn’t write for him. They lost one of the best

I totally agree, angie. They gave him nothing. Just when it could have gotten interesting, they kill him. At least he should have confessed. If they wanted to send him to jail, at least he could have come back. Why not kill Ava instead.

In my opinion it would have been a real surprise if we hadn’t heard a few days earlier that ME was leaving. As for Nina, I agree that it’s too obvious for her to be the guilty party. I expect this will drag on forever just like all the other s/l’s. In the end we won’t care who did it.

CeeCee

You got that right, Carol. It will drag forever…wait,…. till I do several of the Gwyneth-Paltrow-yawns.

Obviously it will go on until November! That’s 3+ months of BS we’ll have to sit through!
We know Ron C. started this storyline, but how will the new writers finish it? It’s entirely possible it will end much differently than originally planned…if it was actually PLANNED. Seems like so many stories have started out one way and then been changed mid-storyline. Michael Easton has already played three characters on GH. Who’s to say one of them won’t come back? And don’t even bring up the fact that they’re dead, LOL!

k/kay
k/kay

If it is Donna Mills sorry could not think of her name they will save a lot of money on make up! If it is KiKi they will save a lot of money on acting lessons. If it is Denise we will save us all from insanity on the lousy wig and fake accent . But if Silas only has seven dollars in his pocket then we know it is Morgan isn’t that the actor who gets on Twitter to his fans for seven dollars. One thing is for sure ME won’t be giving any nasty interviews about his show and cast members and writers etc. the man is a very smart classy guy!

Jamesj75

Read his statement about leaving the man was only there for three years thanked his fans everyone for the great ride! Class act all the way this people is how you exit a show it makes people want to work with you etc. Doesn’t B&B need a cop named John on their force???

I love gh
I love gh

Me, too, Terri. The scenes between Silas and Ava when she was dying in the hospital were incredible… I expected a romance between them, not for her to instantly hate him and for him to sneer at her. This seems like a rushed decision, a bad one. How hard is it to give a doctor a storyline? At General HOSPITAL. I know it was hard to create an instant character when McBain was no longer allowed contractually, but they threw him in scene after scene, and he handled it like a pro. Who is going to handle Danny’s medical care? Josslyn’s?

This stinks.

Rose
Rose

I love GH…Excellent point…how hard is it to give a doctor a storyline on General Hospital? Even Lucas and Patrick’s are a bit thin. And come to think of it, a lot of the action that takes place at GH isn’t very hospitally.

JUDY

TOTALLY AGREE….G..H. WOULD HAVE BEEN SMART TO WRITE A GOOD STORYLINE FOR SILAS AND GET RID OF SO MANY OTHERS…

Lin

I totally agree. Get rid of Ava first. Either give madelin something more interesting or buh bye. Can not stand Ric. He may be cute , but sleeping with madelyn and trying to make Nina go crazy, it’s disgusting. Morgan is worthless. Send him away. he can come back with a new personality and actor.

already said several times on the other posts that I’m sad they let MicHael Easton go. Horrible decision; he gave his all to the scene where he found Ava and Morgan together. Truly powerful depiction f a father enraged. If they had only written for him…

And with that, i think Madeleine did it.

Yes, it would have been very interesting to watch how he told Kiki and tried to help her through it. Much more interesting than a murder.

BRING SILAS BACK BRING SILAS BACK

Fanny

It’s obvious Nina’s innocent…she’s not a back stabber like some others we know.
Ava & Morgan for sure, Mad Maddie & Rick definitely… However they weren’t
aware Silas was the one who’d taken Avery….. But whose to say they didn’t
follow after Franco and overhear him tell Nina what Silas had done….
Anything’s possible….

Ric …
Ric is the killer, of course it’s all about the money..
But then again, how it plays out will be in the hands of the new writers and if it’s anything like 2014 Y&R never ending boring stories, terribly boring stories, well…….???

Fanny

@su0000…. Rick has done some pretty heinous things in the past…
He would never be able to come back from this!!! Stabbing Silas

ROSE LOONEY

THEY CAN GET RID OF RICK TOO WHY IS SHAWN OFF I LIKED HIM

Chrystie Delancey
Chrystie Delancey

They will probably have to play a lot of this OFF screen which is really sloppy storytelling. My money is on Madeline.

Ava can’t kill anymore people because she is already painted into that corner. Morgan doesn’t have the cojones to do it (nor should he).

Fanny
Fanny

Talk about the Mothers from Hell!

Rose
Rose

Maybe eliminate by those who knew Nina was at the “place?” Ric, Silas, Madeline, Franco.

My money’s on Madeline since I think it’s more of a female thing to stab in the back or poison someone.

Morgan’s too much in your face and a bit of a screw up, even if he knew where Silas had gone. And Ric’s just too much of a screw up/wimp who doesn’t like to get his hands dirty.

Or, maybe Heather Webber was lurking in the hallway and did it. We haven’t seen her for a while. She did sort of befriend Nina once in her own way, and has been known to use a knife.

And I’ll pull a Jimh and say it was one last unseen, parting gift by Fluke/Luke.

Fanny
Fanny

Actually, I hadn’t thought of Heather… Perfect scapegoat if one of
them is written into a corner. Good one!

Ava did it and will let Nina take the blame. Franco will confess to save Nina. Morgan is too stupid to pull it off.

Tony Geary chewed the scenery every time he was on camera. He was an overacting, overrated ham. Why do you think he never made it in movies or stage? He certainly tried. And with his pal, Elizabeth Taylor, you’d think he would have had some connections.

Glo
Glo

I’m going with Madeline. She hated Silas from the beginning because he was not good enough for her Nina. She did everything in her power to destroy him, unsuccessfully. So she had to kill him before he ruined her plot to get Nina’s money. Plus, the actress is not a cast regular, so she’s expendable.

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

I think Madeleine did it too…but I don’t think she hated Silas because he wasn’t good enough for Nina…a mother who puts her daughter into a coma then plots against her…by making her think she’s losing her mind…is not exactly what I’d call overprotective. Lol…

I believe she didn’t want him to get any piece of Nina’s money…and whatever other secret Madeleine’s harboring about Nina’s childhood.

Fanny
Fanny

@Rebecca… Like perhaps KiKi is really Nina & Silas’s daughter?
MadMaddie would have taken the newborn and given her to Ava,
since she’d originally paid Ava to lure & seduce Silas away from
Nina. She placed her daughter in a coma, giving away her grand-
daughter would’ve been easy… MadMaddie couldn’t take the
chance Kiki would inherit Nina’s millions….

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

Hi Fanny…I must say though much of GH is predictable, I’ve wavered on whether Kiki is Nina’s daughter. Might be because I think Ron may have wavered, too. It seemed like all indications were pointing in that direction…then I felt he changed course and went back to dropping hints that, “no fans, you figured out wrong! She really IS Ava’s.” Though, it might explain why she doesn’t feel too creepy about sleeping with her daughter’s boyfriend…but if that’s the case that would imply adoptive mothers don’t love their children as much…so…

But, yes. He promised some “big secret” so let’s have it already! Lol…

Haven’t yet watched the other True Blood-esque shows you recommended. I thought they ‘d be offered on Comcast On Demand but they were charging a lot for the seasons…

Laura

I thought that could be a good way to get out of this mess…it could be Nina’s, Mad Momma Maddie’s, Rick’s, Morgan’s…any of them imagining a way to prevent their plots or lies from being revealed.

Sadly, I don’t really care about any of the suspects. In fact, I hope it was all these newbies (Ava, Nina, Kiki, Madeline, etc.) so they could all be sent to prison. Oh, wait, what am I saying… killers never pay on GH, they just continue to roam around Port Charles… so ultimately, it doesn’t matter who killed Silas. Any stakes or jeopardy has been removed, and any compelling reason to actually watch has been diluted, because crimes never have consequences on this show…

Yes, Maura West is a great actress. Loved her as Carly on ATWT, too. The problem is her character has done too many heinous things, all just to shock the viewers. I am no longer shocked. Just numb. Ava has been written into a corner and she is no longer redeemable in my eyes.

I don’t care who did it. I only care about the fact that they killed off Silas and we have no more Michael Easton on the show… I don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes but I don’t care – I’m furious, disappointed, heartbroken. I won’t mention the fact that giving this actor such terrible last scenes is beyond disgusting to me.

Agreed Sophie. Michael Easton’s talents were wasted on this show with horrible writing for his character.
There are so many useless bad actors on the show that should leave and GH eliminates MIchael? Not fair at all.

Corine

What a shame to have Silas killed. There is so much dead weight and far too many side story lines – GH has wondered off track. Love the Nina/Franco storyline (huge Roger Hoawarth fan) – those two could do some serious damage if the writers gave them a story line…the Rick/Madeline story line is totally disgusting -not a fan of Donna Mills – loose her. As for sending off Luke – couldn’t it have been done differently? How long before he wants to come back….probably as a loon…
I can see why the ratings have dropped and glad RC is gone..who is next or …will the show get the ax?

su0000

It will be twists and turns and a shocker!
RC is back to his best!
The past week has rocked!! RC is bringing it !

I hate seeing ME go but we know and the soap actors know they can be let go at any given minute..
He is busy man writing and recently wrote and produced his movie that won an award!!
He will do well..

I knew RC would bring his A-game as soon as he was no longer stuck in the all the Luke drama.. And he has 🙂
RC has started some really good drama intrigue stories , hope the two new snooze writers can keep them going with the twists and turns, surprises, shocker as RC is known for..

I doubt that it will be any of the 3 .. but then again because I doubt it might be lol
but– I will say– Killer is — Ric !!

Look at the way Nina is holding the knife. Also Michelle Stafford is pregnant in real life so I expect her to be locked up for the crime while she goes on maternity leave possibly permanently!!

I must amend what I said, su. I apologize. I read two conflicting reports….one stating that Michelle Stafford is having a second child via surrogacy, and earlier, my sister sent me a link that states she is pregnant. Now, I am not sure. We’ll see. Bye, su.

Dan
Dan

Wow, that sure was final. I thought they would use Silas being a doctor as a reason to send him out of town, say he was going to treat a patient or something. But to be honest, I didn’t have much use for the character. They did a poor job writing and developing it.

I’m a fan of Michael Easton, but he was much better as John McBain. Maybe some day ABC and Prospect Park will settle their pissing contest, and Michael will be able to return as John McBain. I would love to see that.

As far as who killed Silas, if RC was continuing as head writer, I would say that maybe we’ll find out by around October 2037. But with the new writers taking over soon, hopefully they will be much better about moving stories along.

Love your “October 2037.” I agree Silas was not fleshed out as a character. I would have liked to see him tell Kiki- to see how he did it and how he helped her through it. The show needs more doctors.It’s General Hospital for heavens sake!

well said Dan!

I think Nina’s mother Madeline did the deed to keep Silas from confessing to lil Avery’s kidnapping and ruining her plan to steal Nina’s inheritance.

hi Alan.
nawww Maddy is too prissy to get bloody by stabbing lol
stabbing is not her style and she doesn’t have moxy to do it..

what puzzles;
Silas was stabbed in the back..
He didn’t see it coming..
A cowardly move = Rick..

both Morgan and Nina were raged and that would be an eye to eye death , they didn’t do any backstabbing, nope..

Lin

I hope it was ric and he is caught and connected. Cant’ stand him and him with Madeline is disgusting on so many levels.

Give Mad Maddie a little more credit…she’s an ambitious killer just like Ava when need be…just with a more “class.”

dolores

just thought of a twist—when Michael Easton first came to GH he had a twin brother who was killed (or so we thought – as we watched someone walk thru morgue/hospital doors) perhaps he was killed by his brother and we get to keep Michael Easton on the air…I would vote for this….Michael Easton is a wonderful actor who was under utilized on GH…bring him back and give him a storyline worth his talent!

Ryan
Ryan

Such a shame and such a waste of unutilized potential. Silas Clay deserved a better fate than this and Michael Easton deserved better acting material than what he has suffered with for the last year. The amazing thing is that he was able to do so much with so little he was given… the death of what should feel like a recurring character is impacted by the likability and realness Mr. Easton brought to the role. He truly put his heart and soul into Silas Clay and never complained about his lack of story or air time. He will truly be missed on General Hospital.

As for suspects, I’m all in on the killer being Madeline Reeves. She always hated Silas; it was even hinted at during the Nina/Ava/Maddie scenes where Ava was forced to give birth to Avery that Maddie and Ava had worked together and that Maddie had some secrets she was keeping from Nina (the true parentage of Kiki, maybe, and that Kiki’s mother was really Nina after all?). To kill the man that Nina once loved so deeply AND to frame Nina so she can collect Nina’s inheritance… just an all-around perfect plan and afterwards with Nina locked away well, Maddie won’t need Ric soon. He better watch out for a knife in his back.

ummm
I betcha a Dairy Queen, that Ric is the killer !

ok–
second thought..

Franco but a knife to Morgan, he likes knives lol ..
he stabbed mommy dearest with a knife..
thing wrong with Franco doing it-
He would not stab Silas in the back..
Franco is more personal than that, he would build up his own pleasurable drama before the kill..
He would look Silas in eye, for sure..
well, back to Ric as the cowardly backstabbing killer..

I don’t think it was Franco…unless they plan on wiping out the last of the OLTL 3. I also don’t think he’d risk being sent to jail or worse now that he has Nina back. My vote is Mad Momma Maddie!

My money’s on Madeline. She’s an unlikeable, minor character who no one would miss (as opposed to Morgan, Ava or Nina, who all have some degree of rooting value). I’m also willing to bet Donna Mills doesn’t work cheap, even on a recurring basis, so removing her character would make sense from a bottom line perspective as well.

I think whomever it was, it was a WOMAN. I don’t think Silas would turn his back on Fracno. Maybe he was napping on the floor and Franco stabbed him? Ha! Ha! That is the only way I see THAT scenario played out.

It was either Nina, Ava, or another woman – maybe even Madeline.

su0000

Well, if Ric didn’t do it the Silas slipped and fell on the knife and then rolled over and died LOL ..]

(it was Rick, yup.. money needs killing for)

ohhh no!! maybe Heather escaped, again!! lol

Chrystie Delancey
Chrystie Delancey

I’ll let you hold onto your theory, su, but I think stabbing is a crime of passion which would make it be a woman. That is unless the writers are adding another angle to this story and Silas and Ric had something going on off screen. 😉

If we’re looking for a twist with someone who has a history with knives, how about Heather Webber. Maybe this is where she was last “locked up”, and she was “fond” of Nina, in her own way, once.

I am really sad that Michael Easton will no longer be on GH. I’m hoping it was Madeline that did the deed, because she is definitely an expendable character, more so in my opinion than the other suspects. I just don’t think that writing new stories for a cancer specialist in a hospital, on a show called General Hospital, should be so difficult! Michael Easton is an excellent actor and he did a lot of great work the last three years, even with the crap that Carlivati wrote for him. I think it would be great if the lawsuit between Prospect Park and ABC would be over and then maybe John McBain could return and work for the PCPD. They certainly could use a very smart detective on the force! Then maybe Franco could be gone and Todd and Starr Manning would be able to return!

Rosalie will be the culprit.

Speaking of Rosalie…..where has she been? Haven’t seen her in weeks.

This is the LAMEST whodunit ever!! You mean to tell me in just one episode, all the sudden three people want to kill Silas???? stupid and pointless storyline and probably RC’s last crap to write til he exits.
I’m SO no getting wrapped up in this dumb story. Poor Michael Easton for his character going out like this. To top it off? Now we’ll have to endure even more Kiki moaning.

There is a lot more going on in GH than a murder mystery, a lot more..

I hope Morgan did it that way we can finally get rid of the character wich is useless. Send him to jail, to sonnys island to hide , whateva just get rid of him.

Morgan is in a core family..
GH’s families are down to 2 or 3 members, Morgan is a Corinthos and a great character played a talented actor 🙂

It may end up that Silas committed suicide.

As I read through the comments, there are pros and cons for all that were mentioned and I really thought it would probably be Heather Weber since the writers always pile the bad stuff on her but then someone said Rosalie and I remembered reading on some spoilers that Rosalie was still on the scene. It could be her although I can’t imagine why. I do think whoever it was that killed Silas also killed AJ and the only one connected to both of them is Ava.

Anthony

As long as it isn’t the Maura West character(s) – I don’t care. She is one of the few actors I look forward to seeing each day!

Best possible outcome for this story would be the following……

Nina, will of course be arrested because the was hovering over the body with a bloody knife in her hands. But there will be another set of prints on the knife, namely Frodd’s. Remember that he was in Silas’s apartment the previous day, making all sorts of ridiculous “threats” against Morgan, and handled many objects, including the knife. Out of his new found “love” for Nina, Frodd will “confess”.

Now the key here is how much of this story was already written by ReRon before he was fired, and whether it will be dragged out (as his stories usually were) to the point where the new writers get to finish the story.

So memo to Shelly & Jean: Let Frodd’s confession stand. Send him to Pentonville. Get this useless character off the screen. And leave Kiki gone too. Having all three of the OLTL characters (spare me the argument about the new names, we all know what happened) gone for good, is the first step in restoring General Hospital to the great show it stopped being in February 2012.

Justin

I don’t care who killed Silas. He’s part of what I call the new GH (Franco, Nina, Madeline, Silas, Kiki) full of characters that have no connection whatsoever to the GH we know and love.

Kevin Lynn

I’ve been waiting for a chance to expound on my theory. Here goes: Kiki is really Nina’s daughter. A switch was made, Ava was paid, and the writers have been looking for a way to break the news to us. It begins here and now………

ROSE LOONEY
ROSE LOONEY

IT’S DIGUSTING THAT YOU COULDN’T HELP SILAS SO THAT HE COULD STAY ON. WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE R U. I AM DONE WITH GH. HE WAS OUR FAVORITE AND YOU HAD TO SPOIL IT. YOU COULD GET RID OF ELIZABETH, MORGAN, MICHAEL,NICHOLAS. NO IT HAD TO BE OUR FAVORITE, GOODBYE TO GH FROM THE LOYAL FANS ALL THESE YRS. YOU REALLY LET US DOWN BIG TIME. NO MORE GH FR US

ROSE LOONEY
ROSE LOONEY

digusting that u let silas go. get rid of liz, nicholas, nina,morgan but you had silas leave??our favorite you couldn’t give him a better part. your show is getting boring too and u let han go to. crazy no more gh for us loyal fans and u wont be on much longer at the rate your going . thanks for kiling off our favorite!!!!!!!!!!this jason thing is boring too toooo long

Kat

I think it’s Kiki. I never really connected with the new Kiki, and plez someone just tell Jake Doe who he is, they have pulled this out way too
long. I’m hoping the new writers will not have so many storylines going at
one time.

Tarah

It was Rick and Nina’s mom who offed Silas! Franco eluded that he knew who really kidnapped baby Avery and they realized it was Silas and had to stop him so they can still take Ninas money.

Bobbo

I think I have a storyline that could work. Silas Clay is dead. Bring back John (ME) McBain to investigate the murder do to possible mob ties. Plus McBain could be tossed into the mix of Patrick/Sam/Jason-Jake/Elizabeth. Or TPTB could have McBain return to Port Charles with Anna Devane. It was announced that the character would be returning after Finola Hughes is done directing a movie. As for the killer, it’s gotta be Ava. Heather is insane, so that’s how she can keep popping up here and there. Sonny, much to my displeasure, was given a pardon, so I don’t see that being used to a save Ava. I would be really surprised if Morgan was Silas’ killer. I honestly believe that any of us here with the knowledge we have of GH, could fix these characters and save the show!

Slb

Ava or Ric.

Linda
Linda

Madeline has already killed a person and she is someone they won’t keep around so she is likely the one. One thing I know for sure is that it is not Morgan, Ava, or Nina.
Why haven’t we seen more of the Brad and Lucas storyline? Is Brad really married? I thought his father was in the mob and he didn’t want his family to come to Port Charles but saying he is married is bad!
Also, Nathan,Franco, and Nina keep asking Ric if he is the mother’s lawyer. Isn’t it an easy public record that could be looked up, especially by Nathan?

Andrea
Andrea

I think that lady that sat at the table with Sonny is Brads mom

Gentry Ashmore

If the new writers let Ron’s story play out, my money is on Deila/Roxy to avenge her daughters. It will be a total surprise, no major GH character will have to go and Deila did it to protect Ava. Also, Roxy did it to avenge Natalie. You can bet Ron will have Delia justify it with a general speech that applies to both Ava and Natalie just like when Kristen and Roger said goodbye.

simmy

Its Avea the girl who killed Connie ..she kill Silas because he found outhat Morgan sleeping with Ava.

Andrea

Morgan thinks he did it, Ava thinks she did it and I think Madeline did it!!!! Maybe Anna found John McBain and is bringing him back with her to crack the case!!!

Christy

Oh I wish John McBain could come back! ‘Fraid not.

My bet is on Madeline. She probably followed Franco and overheard Silas and Franco talking about who really took the baby.

And I think that Morgan thinks Denise did it and Denise thinks Morgan did it.

GH has stunk for years
GH has stunk for years

hehe .brilliant! Get new writers to finely put a fork in GH. Its about time as the shows run its course and the stores are just plain stupid.

Executive Producer Frank Valentini Talks Returns, Exits, And Previews The Drama This Fall On General Hospital

Surprise returns, a wedding, a heartbreaking social issue storyline, romance, and heavy drama are all ahead this fall on General Hospital.

Executive Producer Frank Valentini sat down with Michael Fairman TV during the ABC TCA 2018 Summer Press Tour All-Star Reception to answer our rapid fire questions throughout the bustle of the industry event.

Valentini previewed what’s ahead in and around Port Charles for several characters and duos as the summer comes to a close, and a new season marks new beginnings.  He also addressed the recent cast exits that have seen fan favorites departing the ABC daytime drama series.

Now, as viewers will witness this week, there is some major distress ahead for several key characters that will play out over the next few months.

Here’s what the showrunner had to say about some hot topics that fans have been buzzing about, and more below.

Genie Francis (Laura) is coming back to the show, after all the uproar and demand for her to return.   You said there will be major story for her when she is back.  Is that true?

Photo: ABC

FRANK:  Yes, and we are very excited that she is coming back.  And yes, we have actually two big stories for Genie, and there is a little bit of overlap in them. When she comes back she jumps right into the big story, and the audience will know what the story is when they see her return. 

Chloe Lanier (Chloe) just wrapped up an incredible run on the show.  How do you feel about her departure from GH?  Did you know she was only planning on staying for a few years? 

FRANK:  We all knew that it was for a limited time. Nelle has sort of wreaked havoc on anyone she possibly could, and left in a big way and helped kick-off another big story with some other fan favorites including: Michael (Chad), Lucas (Ryan Carnes) and Brad (Parry Shen), and Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) and Carly (Laura Wright), and the Corinthos family.  So, that’s another fun thing to look forward to.  Chloe is just a tremendous young actress.  We all remember her from the 52nd anniversary episode, which was the Luke (Tony Geary) episode, which revealed the origin story. Chloe just really stood out to us, and we brought her back.  Everyone loved working with her and she is a great friend.

Did you have any trepidation about doing another baby switch storyline?

FRANK:  Never, never!   This one has a twist on a double twist.  It’s a triple-axel! It will be gut-wrenching, for sure.

Then, Dominic Zamprogna (Ex-Dante) left GH.  How do you feel about him deciding to leave the show?

FRANK:  I love Dominic.  In fact, we just had dinner together a few weeks ago.  He is a great actor, but he wanted to try some other stuff.   We wish him all the best.  And you never know … the door is always open.

Fans on social media have been commenting how the Drew/Sam/Jason triangle featuring: Billy Miller, Kelly Monaco ,and Steve Burton had started, and then was just kind of dropped and has not been playing out on-air.  Have you made the decision to not play that triangle?

FRANK:  No, we are definitely playing it.  There are many iterations:  Drew and Sam are connected through their children, and their love, and the history that they have.  And as well, Jason and Drew being brothers, and that Jason and Sam have their own history, as well.  There’s way more to come! 

Fans have commented, “What happened to this story?”

FRANK:   It’s a big show with a big cast.  Everyone takes a turn stepping forward, and then stepping back.

You brought on Elizabeth Hendrickson (Margaux) as a potential love interest for Drew?

FRANK:  Yes, and I knew her work from All My Children and The Young and the Restless, and she is a phenomenal actress and we are really lucky to have her.  Margaux has got the flash drive with Drew’s memories on it and that is an important piece of information to have.

Peter August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey) is still on the canvas.  Is your plan to have Peter create more havoc in Port Charles?

FRANK:  Wes Ramsey is a phenomenal actor.  I think he did a phenomenal job when Peter was kidnapped and tied-up.  It’s not easy to be in scenes where you are tied-up for almost four weeks, and to act, and to stay present in the stage of being a hostage.  I just though he knocked it out of the park  He is Robin’s (Kimberly McCullough) brother, he is Anna’s (Finola Hughes) son and with whatever is going to happen with Maxie, they are connected.  He is Maxie’s brother-in-law and baby James’ uncle.  There is a lot of story there.

Finola Hughes is back after taking some time-off.  Now, Anna and Finn’s (Michael Easton) relationship will be further explored as they now fight a common enemy.  What can you share about this duo?

FRANK:  Finola had a mini-vacation. She is incredibly hard-working, and we try to make sure actors’ have enough time in their personal life to have fun, and go on vacations, and be with their family. This was something we were able to work out story-wise.  But also, Hamilton will be involved with his family and there is some story there and also as you see, when Finola came back we launched into a big story with them.  There is so much to explore in their relationship. For Anna, she has only had two great loves in her life, Duke (Ian Buchanan) and Robert (Tristan Rogers).  So for her to open up her heart to someone else is a big deal, and we will explore that as well, and what that means.

Michelle Stafford (Nina) has been delivering in scene after scene as the grieving sister, following the death of her brother, detective Nathan West.  What is in store for her Nina and her relationship, Valentin (James Patrick Stuart)?

FRANK:  Valentin and Nina are separated right now, and that is never going to sit well with Valentin.  He is going to do everything in his power to try and win her back.  That will not only be fun to watch, but it will be interesting and full of twists, as well.

Courtesy/ABC

Chase (Josh Swickard) and Maxie seems like they could make for an interesting pairing. Will you explore that at this point?

FRANK:  There is a lot of potential with Maxie, but I don’t think Maxie is ready to be in a relationship.  She has tons of story with Lulu (Emme Rylan), and as well with her parents, and there will be lots of other fun things going on with her, but I don’t see a romance right now being front and center in her life.

Daytime Emmy winner, Lexi Ainsworth (Krstina) is coming back to GH.  Fans had been calling for her return.  Why the decision now to bring her on to the canvas?

FRANK:  We love Lexi!  Her parents are two of the most important people on the show, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn).  It just seemed like a no-brainer, and she was available. We have a really fun story for her, as well.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

So, there is no Parker (Ashley Jones) in Kristina’s life, right now?

FRANK:  We will see as we go along, and we will uncover the truth about that relationship, as well. 

You brought one of the finest actresses in Tamara Braun back to GH.   Do you plan on utilizing her more … and will Kim be driving story?

FRANK:  Kim is going to have a very big story this fall.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

What can you share on the future of Julian (William deVry) and Alexis?

FRANK:  They will be part of the Kim story as well, and their own story.  Alexis is going to be involved in different stories that will culminate in a story of her own, as well

Patricia Bethune was great as Nurse Mary Pat as Carly’s nemesis at Ferncliff.   She is an amazing character actress.  Did you plan on keeping her around as long as you have?

FRANK:  She is just a great actress and we really lucked out.  She played the balance of very deadly serious and dangerous, and also with a sardonic and sarcastic sort of comedic bent to it.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Let’s talk Liz (Rebecca Herbst) and Franco (Roger Howarth).  Is there a wedding? And if so, will it go off without a hitch?

FRANK:   There is a wedding coming in the fall.  And how could a wedding between Liz and Franco be anything but explosive and hilarious?  How funny was Roger Howarth in the remote scenes where they save Carly at Ferncliff, and he is sitting in the car and he says, “You knocked over my art supplies.”  I mean, that is pretty great stuff. 

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

You recently had OLTL fan favorite Patrick J. Gibbons (Ex-Sam Manning) on GH, in role of Wyatt … the scout who tripped upon Peter being held hostage in the cabin.   How was it working with him again after your time together in Llanview?

FRANK:  Patrick and his family are very good friends of mine, who I have always had a connection with. When the writers came up with the part of Wyatt, I thought Patrick would be perfect for it.  He was wonderful.   Patrick has the right amount of innocence. He has grown so much as an actor, and he is still only 11.  I thought he was phenomenal. He played the wonder and the dedication to the scouts and trying to figure it out in fear of Obrecht (Kathleen Gati).   I thought he did such a nice job,   He is a lovely kid.  I was so happy to reconnect with him.

You have recast Vinessa Antoine’s role of Jordan Ashford with Briana Nicole Henry. Vinessa has gone on to be the series lead in the upcoming Canadian TV drama, Diggstown.  Isn’t it always hard to recast a role?

FRANK:  It’s always hard to recast and we never take it lightly.  We always want to make sure we bring in somebody good.  Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan are in a position in their story where it’s important to keep them on the canvas, and write –off the character of Jordan for a frivolous reason. We would not want to do that to the audience.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

The Alzheimer’s storyline is one of the important social and medical issues of our time to shed a light on.  Through Max Gail’s (Mike) performances, it has resonated so much to the audience.  Do you plan on continuing taking the viewers through the most difficult and tragic moments in the journey of someone who cannot escape this illness, and the toll it takes on its loved ones?

FRANK:  I think that Max Gail, like Vernee Watson (Stella), took us by surprise at how amazing they are. The Alzheimer’s story is very near and dear to all of our hearts.  We want to tell it in a way that is very realistic, but to also emphasis the hope and the family connection, and the love that is that family. Sometimes in the face of tragedy, it brings out the best in human beings.  There is something very uplifting about that, even though we are telling a very sad story.  Mike realizes that this family loves him, even though he has made mistakes. There is a tremendous amount of forgiveness and a tremendous amount of empathy and sympathy, and reconciliation in moving forward.  I think the relationship between Max and Sonny is played beautifully by Max and Maurice Benard.

What is ahead for Ava Jerome (Maura West), now that the secret is out that the man she thought she could trust and who loved her, Griffin Munro (Matt Cohen) slept with her daughter, Kiki (Hayley Erin)?

FRANK:  Ava explodes over the next couple of weeks and has a major, major story. Maura West has never been better!

Photo Credit: JPI Studips

What is ahead now for Carly?  She holds the clue that there has been a switcheroo at Ferncliff involving her “therapist” Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom).  Will she be the one to figure it out? 

FRANK:  Carly will definitely be dealing with the repercussions from Ferncliff, and also some family situations, and also something big coming up with Sonny. She will also be helping Michael through his difficult time, because she is a good mother.
