Who killed Psycho Dr. Lisa Niles? GH launches major Whodunit this week!



So it looks like this is truly the end of the line for twisted Dr. Lisa Niles played to perfection by Brianna Brown!  According to TV Guide today, Lisa’s days are finally numbered when her latest evil plot goes awry and she is murdered!

Here is what we know from TVG, “General Hospital  kicks off an epic whodunit this week that finds several Port Charles favorites (Patrick, Robin, Matt, Maxie, Elizabeth, Olivia, Steve) celebrating on a rented party boat unaware that the psychotic Dr. Lisa Niles, whom everyone thinks is in a coma, is hiding among them in plain sight.”

According to GH’s EP Jill Farren Phelps, “Lisa is out to destroy Patrick and Robin and decides this would be a good time to make her move but, truth be told, she doesn’t like anybody on board. This is Lisa’s worst, most insidious plan yet.”

However, her plot does not go as planned and Lisa will be found dead from a blunt-force trauma that will leave every one of the passengers as suspects!   And according to TV Guide,  “This murder mystery will play out for months, and viewers won’t learn the identity of the killer until February!”

So soapers, are you into the story? And more importantly, who do you think will turn out to be Lisa’s murderer?  Let us know!

    Good, it’s about time this character was killed. They dragged on the Fatal Attraction storyline with her & Scrubs WAY too long & then forgot that the movie ending with Glenn Close’s character dying. When I heard they were bringing her back I couldn’t believe it but if it’s to kill her off permanently I say bravo cause it is long overdue.

      Please let our scrubs have a good story don/t make it about this niles character.she should have been dead and gone. If they think this will raise ratings unless it’s about great scrubs and not niles 24/7 it wont do a thing to make fans happy.

        Thats easy!!!!!!

        Johnny’s dad killed her. He has been setting her up from the start. All will be a suspect but in the end it will be the old man !

      Y and R thought of it first with the Diane Jenkins storyline and I loved it. Lets hope this one turns out just as good. I bet any money Franco or Anthony Zacchara will take her out.

    For me and probably a lot of other fans, this is ridiculous. Not only should this character be dead but why stress out all of those characters when she did such horrible things to Robin and deserved to die a thousand times already. Hopefully these awful writers will step up to the plate and write something worth keeping the audience’s interest for longer than a day.

    I think, if this is done well, it can be a great story. Usually a whodunit story line with lots of potential suspects creates a lot of interest. I just hope the culprit is someone we care about – not some unknown, little cared about day player – so we can then some real satisfaction that Lisa got what she deserved. I don’t know how they would pull that off, but am really hoping they do.

    I am sorry to see Brianna Brown leave the show. Lisa had a lot of potential, and she definitely has chemistry with a lot of people. I would have loved it if they hadn’t painted her into a corner like they did and figured out how to pair her with Johnny. They are both pretty damaged people and would have had an amazing, yet twisted, relationship.

    I too enjoy a good whodunit storyline, but I am not a huge fan of them being drawn out for a very long period of time, and if it goes through February, that is way too long (for my taste). Without having seen today’s episode yet, the obvious killer (imo) is probably Anthony, so if he truly is that obvious, it probably won’t be him. As Gail mentioned above, I too, consider a storyline (especially a drawn out one) anti-climatic when the killer ends up being someone insignificant, but I am hopeful tht this will not be the case in this storyline. I hope this murder mystery draws in large numbers in viewership, as well as all of the GH storylines. I so want GH to remain on ABC Daytime. It has the Chew beat by a long shot, so I hope when Katie Couric joins ABC Daytime, she WILL NOT be replacing GH.

    I am sorry to see Brianna and Lisa leave. It’s fun watching Brianna play the sadistically sick Dr. Niles. Instead of killing Dr. Niles, they should have linked her to Franco, and together they could have unleashed their evil fantasies. Or Dr. Niles could have teamed up with Helena Cassadine. With a little imagination, Dr. Niles could have become a more interesting character.

    I am so sorry to say this but enough of this niles character,I found the story with the cheating almost unbearable,to see this character again just makes me to wonder what is it I don’t see . I wish this actress luck but I just don’t care to see niles anymore please let her leave for good, JUST GIVE US SCRUBS THEY DON’T NEED STORIES LIKE THIS SOMEONE HAS TO BE ABLE TO WRITE FOR THEM

    They won’t reveal who did it until February? This is one of the big reasons soaps have been able to attract new viewers let alone maintain what they got. I know some soap fans love long drawn out storylines, but seriously, no story line should ever exceed 2 months, 3 at most. At one point, it becomes repetitious, boring, and a never ending cycle and in that process people start to tune out.

    I think that Lisa Niles was murdered by Anthony Zacchara.

    The story lines on all the ABC soaps have gotten so ridiculous and overused, it’s no wonder the soaps are dying off! Carly Jax….vying for Mother of the Year–is she ever home? Sonny-how many marriages and kids can he ruin? Crazy Dr,.Lisa–no one noticed her skulking around? Luke? time to retire! Seems like the good actors have all gone on to greener pastures before the final soap opera ship sinks!

    I think it was Anthony, but either way who’s going to care by FEBRUARY?? That’s way too long to drag out a story that’s not that interesting anyway! Take a hint from the soaps that have been cut recently & dont follow their footsteps & get canceled too! Please?!

    It’s way too obvious. The new girl cop…THey showed a woman cutting up the article on Lisa and slipping it into her purse (it’s a female)…She is trying to make a name for herself. Why else would the character have been added?? C’mon GH, give us a break? Are we really that stupid not to get it. Not worth watching anymore. At least Lisa added interest to an otherwise banal set of storylines. Ah, where are the good ol days. Lisa, you will so be missed!

    I bet a million bucks its Steven who murdered Lisa. Steve had scratches on his face, which perhaps indicates a struggle between him and his intended victim ~ Lisa Niles. I would also guess that I do believe that this Dr. Maggie character (who is from Houston, and coincidentally, so is Lisa) is Lisa’s sister. I bet she will be a new reign of terror in this whole situation.
    My second guess would be Anthony ~ he was pretty peeved that Lisa whacked him with that two-by-four with the nail in his gut, and probably decided that since he brought her back to life he would end it.

    Feb. is too long I am on the edge already. I think a female killed Lisa. They showed a woman clipping out the headline of Lisa’s death & in the background they had that creepy clown mask. The same clown mask someone had on that day at the hospital. I think Lisa is not dead she must have a twin. Patrick & his brother is acting a little suspicious but I don’t think they killed her. Patrick most likely found her dead then he tossed her over

      Ok I take the twin part back Lisa is really dead but this new lady is suspicious

    I’m very disappointed with Gh lately. It’s so boring and stupid. I don’t care who killed Lisa Niles. The whole Luke thing was a big turn off. Lucky going to Ireland is as stupid as it gets! Robin grew up in front of my eyes and the stupid things she does is an insult to her character! I want to stop watching. I’m going to cut down to Monday’s and Fridays because the stories move too slowly. Abc I hope you’re reading this.

    Has anyone even noticed that the picture in the article about Dr. Niles’ death doesn’t even look like her. It looks like someone else…what is that?

    I want Spinelli to be the murderer. He probably came on the boat, came across Lisa while she was trying to off Robin and whacked her with the wrench! That would be the
    best revenge ever and totally justified!

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

WATCH: 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Winners Virtual Interviews

This year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were back on television for the first time since 2011, and back on CBS.  Due to the times we are living in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, the usual kudofest, honoring the best in daytime programming, had to move from its originally scheduled live event to a virtual one.

That also means for us at Michael Fairman TV, the usual backstage “Winner’s Walk” interviews conducted immediately following some of your daytime drama favorites big wins also had to altered for this unique year.

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.
