GENERAL HOSPITAL: The Identity of ‘The Hook’ Revealed

Courtesy/ABC

In the first all-new episode of 2023, General Hospital made a ‘killer’ reveal on Tuesday as several characters were put into turmoil in life and death situations.

Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who is waiting at Pier 27 for her way out of Port Charles to enact her plan to disappear, instead winds up being at the right place at the wrong time.

Elsewhere at the pier, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) is fending off ‘The Hook” who is taking swipes at her.  Josslyn manages to push ‘The Hook’ away, but ends up tripping on her high heels!  ‘The Hook’ moves in to kill Josslyn, but in comes Britt to save the day! She and ‘The Hook” go at it and just when the killer is going to strike Britt, a shot is fired.  It’s Dex (Evan Hofer)! He has arrived on the scene. ‘The Hook’ takes off.

Next, Britt wants to call the police, but Dex stops her.  When the detective and the cops eventually show up, Britt tells them she fought off ‘The Hook’, who was attacking someone else. Britt says she doesn’t know where the other victim went to, as we cut to Dex who has taken Josslyn to his apartment.  Then, one thing leads to another, and Dex and Josslyn can’t resist their attraction to one another and have sex.

Back at the ‘Haunted Star’, just as Trina (Tabyana Ali) and Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) are about to kiss, Esme (Avery Pohl) shows up and passes out! She has hypothermia from jumping off the parapet at Wyndemere and landing in the steely waters below.  When Spencer gets Esme to the hospital, he calls Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) who is with Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), and they realize they are in big trouble with Esme landing at GH alive, pregnant, and with hypothermia. Will she implicate Liz and Nik as her kidnappers? Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) shows up at GH, and wants to question Esme, believing at this point she is more than likely ‘The Hook’.

Next, we see ‘The Hook” with a bloody arm, who then takes off her mask revealing herself to be … wait for it … Heather Webber!

After the shooting and almost being killed by ‘The Hook’, Britt decides to go back to the ‘Haunted Star’ to be with her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati).  The two down some shots.  However, when Britt removes her coat, Liesl sees blood on Britt’s chest, and the next thing you know, Britt crashes to the floor …  and we fade to black.

So, what do you think of the reveal of Heather Webber as ‘The Hook’? Do you think GH just killed-off Britt since Kelly Thiebaud is exiting the series? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

I hope that Britt does not die. I would rather see her go off screen to some “far away clinic” since prime time shows come and go… but GH has proven it’s “staying power”. Kelly Thiebaud is always welcome back, in my opinion.

When does this HOOK actor finally get caught
It’s getting pretty boring on and on and on
Come on GH this is getting a little boring you are gonna loose a lot of GH watchers if you keep going on and on with these boring situations for ever and ever

I agree! Geez, move on with catching the Hook character. And how the heck could she go & come freely like she does with no one missing her. I enjoyed the storyline for awhile but let it go already…along with the whole Esme stuff too!

GH should have replaced Brit-not kill her off. Her character was worth watching-especially her relationship with shady Coby. Bring the character back.

Also hoping this is not the end for Britt Westbourne. She’s too good a character to be dead-dead. Then again, so were Alan, Georgie and AJ. As for Heather being “the Hook”, there’s a lot that doesn’t make sense. Why would Heather Target Ava, who was one of Franco’s few friends? Is she only out to avenge one of her children? Peter would’ve been a target once it became knowledge he killed Franco and Heather certainly held a grudge on Olivia as she perceived her to have wronged Steven Lars. And just how did a senior citizen woman easily overpower… Read more »

I really hate it when soaps do this. Heather was not on the canvas when the storyline began and it’s another LONG mystery with a dud ending. I felt that Heather killed Rory in the mistaken idea that she was helping Esme, who she thinks is the hook – unless she was lying to Ryan she didn’t know that Esme was her daughter (of course she could have lied to him). My hope is that it is revealed that ESME was the hook before being held prisoner at Wyndemere but Heather took over for her. I know they will do… Read more »

Joss & Dex….. worst soap couple since Tony & Renee on Days in 1982. For the exact same reason. I suppose she’ll end up pregnant before she realizes she’s a brotherphucker.

As for Britt getting hooked… 666% completely unnecessary, since she was on her way out of town anyway.

And yeah… Heather’s the Hooker… who didn’t see that coming from 666 miles away??

Yup, Satan–we did discuss Heather. If not Rory ( albeit, I still think he was a baddie, somehow), then Heather. I remember saying specifically it was probably H–she re-appeared at the most opportune time. Joss is a ______–I refrain from saying IT!! Plus, that puny guy with droopy shoulders is so not for her. Agreed, a badly mismatched couple. Poor Cameron!! I hope Joss and the other guy do not last–the greatest payback would be for Cam to find a girl and for Joss to regret her lusty decision—(lust fades, love endures), and be left in the dust. I had… Read more »

Happy 2023, Celia. But not for the viewers! If Britt is truly dead (is anyone on soaps?), this is another in a long syndrome of catastrophic ideas. Wow, Joss is truly Carly’s daughter, eh? Just cheat and fornicate your way thru town with no guilt. My nan would dub her ‘la puttana’. But hey, how about that wallop Ava gave Nikolas at GH…that looked like it hurt!

Same to you, beautiful lady—Happy New Year!! I was taken aback by Joss’s behavior. I really liked her—lost all respect for her. Break up first; cheat later—I must admit I am very old-fashioned. After all these years, I can still hear my grandmother’s pounding in my brain, “keep your legs crossed”—-LOL. Well, her mother is neither virtuous nor honest—having sex with all three brothers–WOW!! What an achievement!! –“puttana” is right!! My nonna-in-law loves the word “troia”—fits Carly to the letter. Hurrah for Ava!! If anyone deserved that “schiaffo”? it was definitely Nikolas!! I am as annoyed and disappointed about the… Read more »

At least I can stomach Joss & Dex, who arguably have good chemistry. Worst soap couples (GH nominees) were the vomit-inducing, short-lived dalliances between Luke & Felicia and Sonny & Emily.

It doesn’t make any sense that Heather Webber is the hook killer.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Hey, Michael—Heather is Esme’s mother. So, I’m assuming that in her distorted brain, she’s defending her daughter from those whom have hurt her.
However, I do see your point–I’m a little confused–I did not realuze she knew Esme was in PC. Therefore, I have my own take on this entire craziness–I think the original Hooker was Rory. Heather merely picked up where he left off. Ok, ok—not plausible? I’ve guessed right a few times before…LOL.

Michael

I know she’s her Mom, but it doesn’t make sense that she’s able to escape from prison and kill people without anyone noticing.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Oh, Michael, Heather has a knack for breaking out of prison. I am not a long-time watcher of GH, but I do believe that’s her modus operandi
However, at the risk of sounding repetitious, I do not think Heather is THE real Hooker.

Thank you, Lew–Heather’s impromptu appearance makes me wonder. Maybe the PTB are tired of this story themselves and are grasping at straws. Heather is a convenient alternative—

Is it possible that Esme has multiple personality disorder? That would explain why she truly believes she is not the Hook & why Heather picked up where her other personality left off after being held captive by Nicholas.And why she doesn’t remember who she is now after jumping off the parapet pregnant and getting hypothermia. Kevin doesn’t seem to think she is faking the memory loss.

What a difference between the Alley Mills/Pam on B&B’s closing holiday show, and her crossover role in GH as deranged Heather Webber. Both in almost the same week. She’s been great in both roles.

It wasn’t a total surprise that it is Heather. The real mystery now is how she managed to get out and back into her “prison” without being noticed?

Britt had better make it. Kelly is too great an actress for her character to be killed off.

Hope Diane runs across Heather soon and it jolts her memory; thus, putting an end to Heather’s latest reign of terror.

Satan
Guest

Heather has been escaping from various prisons & mental institutions for years, so that’s at least consistent with her character. You may also have noticed that she has been letting herself in and out of Ryan’s cell at Spring Ridge with a key. Presumably stole a key ring from a guard somehow, so that key ring would probably also have keys to other doors that would let her out of the prison to do some hooking. The security at Spring Ridge can’t be all that great, because Spencer was able to walk out of there, visit his mother Courtney’s grave,… Read more »

I figured it would be “Heather the Hook!” Thats okay, the new actress portraying Heather is “Killing it!” I thought the Hook would have gotten Jeff Weber when he was in town. But, I didnt want Britt or Joss to get it. The girl who plays Joss is great! Britch, I still think her mother sends her off to a clinic out of the country and she will heal and find Jason and both will return to PC by 2024. Esme, that actress is another one, so talented. She has horrible parents but like Ava and Sonny, the writers will… Read more »

Liesl and Britt’s last toast, ending with Britt dying in Mutter’s arms was probably the first time I was brought to tears in a soap. Kathleen was outstanding. Let’s hope this isn’t really Britt’s last breath on GH. Being a soap you never know.

I know they “showed” Heather as the “hook” killer, but something seems wrong with this to me. If the attacks were to get back at Esme’s enemies, since she was her daughter, Heather wasn’t always discriminating on who she attacked. And timeline-wise GH didn’t show Esme was her daughter until well into the attacks. This during a conversation with Ryan, her father. So I’m not sure the writers don’t have another surprise about the “hook.”

Violet Lemm

I agree. This hook thing is so convoluted. On one hand, every victim was an enemy of Esme, starting with Ava and the second intended was Joss, also the last one. I can’t figure the attack on Diane, she hardly knew Esme.As you said Heather didn’t know Esme was her and Ryan’s daughter until recently, I think there are two Hooks as some others are saying.

Also, where would Heather be getting the poison used on the hook?

There was a guy who was supplying the snake venom. That’s the other body who was found on the floor in the apartment where Rory got hooked. Remember when this Heather recast first appeared, she was being treated at GH for an infection of a flesh eating bacteria, the specific type being native to the Amazon rain forest in South America… which was also the source of the venom used by the Hooker. So Heather definitely fits that part of the Hooker’s profile. You just have to suspend your disbelief that a woman who should be over 70 by now… Read more »

I think it’s ridiculous that Heather is the hook. It lacks imagination of any sort on the writers’ part. Ryan’s obsession with Ava is so old and overdone. I’m so disappointed that Britt was killed. Couldn’t she have left like she wanted to so she could return from time to time to visit Liesl? Poor Liesl has lost both kids. If not for the brilliance of Kathleen and Kelly, Britt’s death scene would have stunk!! It was really nice seeing Roger and Kathleen together on-screen too. While Alley Mills portrays Heather perfectly, the hook should have been someone else. And… Read more »

I am so sick of the bulshit, on GH, they have the worst writers can they not come up with any other ideas .besides amnesia, everyone and their mother gets amnesia, God knows no one loses their memory from a stabbing, but on GH, now you have Esme losing hers, Please atop the BS and lock Nicolas and Elizabeth up for kidnapping, Tell Nina she Willow mother, and burst Carly bubble and move on to some new storylines what’s it been 3 yrs of the same old stuff. This stuff is so old!!!!!!!!

I think Heather Webber as “The Hook” is a let down. It wasn’t a OMG moment. Ryan, for one, would have made it better!

I thought Ryan was the hook but realized he wouldn’t have tried killing his beloved Ava, but the thing that bothers me the most is how did this Hook person know where each victim was each time, did they just get lucky or did they just attack who was available? It’s crazy!

Deb

How can Heather be the hook killer? The hook killer’s 1st victim ,Ava, was way before Heather knew that Esme was around. And we’re supposed to believe that Rory was killed at that apartment by Heather! Heather used her right hand when fighting with Nicholas & then Britt. The original hook killer was left handed.

Heather’s a copycat Hook Killer she might have killed the last two but she didn’t attack the others. This is a red herring. I still think it’s someone else well known on the show that we will be totally shocked to find out is the initial Hook Killer and that is hoping the writers are that creative which I hope they are.

If they turn the last surviving member of Steve Hardy’s family into a serial killer, that would only be 666% confirmation that they are deliberately trying to get GH cancelled in 2023.

(as if the show becoming the Parasite Nina Praise & Worship Hour wasn’t already evidence enough of that!)

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

Courtesy/ABC

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

General Hospital Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Share your condolences and remembrances for Annie in the comment section.  But first, check out some scenes from her time on General Hospital below.
