"Who Killed Silas?" Murder Mystery Set To Wrap This Week On General Hospital!

Courtesy/ABC

Looks like General Hospital will not be dragging out the whodunit in the murder of Silas Clay, which saw popular daytime star Michael Easton being written-off the canvas.

While evidence has been mounting against Silas’ ex wife Nina Clay (Michelle Stafford)  there are several other suspects who probably did the deed.  The latest ABC promo relates five suspects: Rick (Rick Hearst), Madeline (Donna Mills), Nina , Franco (Roger Howarth) and Ava (Maura West).

There still could be others who offed the doc, chief among them: Morgan Corinthos (Bryan Craig) or what about even Kiki Jerome (Hayley Erin)?  The smart money, or Vegas odds shall we say, seem to be leaning towards the killer turning out to be Donna Mills’ Madeline Reeves, but could it turn out to be a surprise?

Watch the promo for this week’s GH after the jump.  Then, let us know who is your prime murder suspect …  and if you are glad that the series is wrapping up this story.

Think you know #WhoKilledSilas? The killer will be revealed this week! #GH

I just don’t even care who murdered Silas, so there. BTW, I’m on a two-week experiment to not record on my DVR or watch GH to see if I miss it. First time to not watch GH in 3 years.

Your very brave charday, I wish I could do it but I’m an addict, lol, so even though the show is not great , it still has my loyalty, and my guess is Madeline did it.

I’ve not been watching the show for the past two months and haven’t really missed it. I occasionally check the forums and this site to see if I’m missing anything but so far, nope.

I think all of the pictured suspects have killed someone and gotten away with it and/or at least done things that are as bad, so I’m not sure I’m understanding the stakes – is there someone in this suspect list that I’m supposed to be worrying about being guilty?

Erick

My hope is Madeline… don’t think they’ll make it Franco, Nina, or Ava, the actors are too valuable (like it or not, they’re Emmy winners). Hope it’s not Ric, hate to lose another vet (and Sonny’s bro, and Molly’s dad…). Mills is an Emmy winner too, but the most expendable. Wish it could be Kiki, but she wouldn’t kill her dad….

Timmm

Its Madeline, she is disposable at this point.

They are wrapping up sweeps and it was just horrible! I watched it with my hand on the FF button!

@Timmm.
My first guess had been Rick, Timmm. That was before I went away. Everyone was pretty much convinced it had been Ava. I never thought so….too simplistic. But, Madeline is the next best choice. She and Rick have the most to gain and lose, at the same time…depending how one looks at it….but, basically, it comes down to the same thing. How about the vampire?? Could he have ‘flown’ in?
So, Rick was arrested. I am starting to have second thoughts. This, too, seems too easy.
I am so rooting for Nathan to prove he is a worthy cop…..my beautiful sleuth….LOL. Dante? Well, he always appears as if he just got out of bed…hair always messed up …..I can envision him wearing glasses, slightly set awry on his head/face….LOL. I think there’s something missing…and, now I don’t know about Rick. I wish TPTB would kill two birds with one store. Get rid of both MadMaddie AND Rick.
I’m with Harry, I am sick of looking at Madelines’ scary eyes. Harry finally cleared what is so strange about her eyes…it’s that weird colored shadow and the way her eyebrows run into the corners of her eyes. And, what a mother!!!!! Enough throwing Nina under the bus. I realize not many like Nina, but whatever pains her is due to the torture she must have endured being borne by that blood-sucker. Lol.

You will not miss much I believe. I went about two weeks without playing catch up and if I was watching I usually missed a lot due to being busy with other things and as sad as it is to say I didn’t miss it. I only tuned back in since it seems Ava and Morgan should have what’s coming to them soon and I’m hoping it leads to Kiki’s exit.

sandra

i dont care about this storyline but i believe ava did it. just have the jake/jason storyline to an end. have sam n jason back together. have sam n carly slap liz n give her heck!!!!!!

aria
aria

bite your tongue! no slapping liz around especially by those two hypocrites!, but i know RC wrote it this way so that Liz could become the towns pushing bag, i sure hope the two new writers will have liz do the right thing an tell jake that he’s jason, but i doubt thats the route it will go, more likely you will get your wish,and sam carly, and every self righteous character will get in a line and start pouncing on poor liz.

clh

Liz has always been the biggest hypocrite on the show. She is always right in what she does but when others do the same thing she tells them what a horrible person they are.

How many kids does this woman have by how many fathers? She slept with Lucky’s brother while all the time stringing Lucky along.

Adultery; slept with Zander Smith [Nov 4, 2003]

Stole a police file to protect Jason Morgan and shredded it [Spring 2006]

Impersonated a police officer [Summer 2007]

Perjury; lied about Jake’s true paternity during Jason Morgan’s murder trial [Summer 2007]

Stole a drug to counter the effects of a hallucinogen that a drug dealer injected into Lucky [Jul 2011]

Ran an unauthorized paternity test on the child Britt Westbourne claimed as her own [Feb 2014]

Lying to Jake about his true identity

Knows Nicholas put a hit on Hayden and is ok with that.

Her hypocrisy has nothing to do with the writing of RC, she’s always been a hypocrite. Aside from that, the character is just plain boring.

Ces

The wait is over? It hasn’t been that long, no one cares and apparently GH realizes this story from the start has been pointless so they’re putting an end to it. Does it matter who killed Silas? Any one of those characters can leave the show and I’m pretty sure most fans won’t care who.

Laura
Laura

If most fans wouldn’t care then why is there a petition that has over 13,300 signatures to try and get him back on GH? Biggest mistake GH has made in a long time.

Ces
Ces

Did i mention anything about NOT caring about michael easton? Dont think so!!

Harry
Harry

Laura, there is a huge difference between not caring who killed Silas and waning Michael back.
I care that they unceremoniously and unwisely fired him but I couldn’t care less who killed him. I guess I am not alone because after they killed off Silas the ratings plummeted. I have not watched since Silas was killed.

CeeCee
CeeCee

True, Ces. But, I would care if Nina, Franco and Ava were no longer living in Port Charles, LOL.
Seriously, though; I guess it depends who one’s favorite characters/actors are.

Timmm
Timmm

Ah, Double Cee, welcome home! If we are lucky maybe Nina bought the knife, Franco sharpened it and Ava used it and all three go bye bye!

CeeCee
CeeCee

@Timmm.
Thank you, my dearest friend. LOL. That is a very tongue-in-cheek scenario. Leave it to you to brighten my day with your unique comments.
I don’t want none of these great actors to go bye bye, Timmm. I love Michelle…always. But, I admit, I enjoy your spin and levity. Sounds like a scene from THE THREE STOOGES.
If we think about it for a sec…..why would Morgan’s bipolar disorder ‘come out’ suddenly? I have been mulling over this. Now, out of the blue, everyone is so concerned about Mo’s mental state and the possibility that HE killed Silas? Could be he did it and doesn’t remember because of his disorder? He gets charged for the murder but escapes jail and ends up in the mental institution instead. Poetic justice????
Thanks again for the welcome, Timmm. Always enjoy ‘exchanging’ with you. Later.

Ces

I’m with you Timmm. All three have had way too much airtime, sorry CeeCee, I just can’t handle this group.

Grammar correction: ” I want none of these actors to go bye bye….” NOT ” I don’t want none…..”
Double negative is taboo. My bad, and my iPad, which has a mind of its own. I hope the moderators post this correction….I take use of good grammar seriously. Thanks.

Timmm!!!! I like the way you think….sorry ’bout that, CeeCeeGirl!!!! LOL….

Michael Easton is one of my favorite actors and I was sorry to see him leave GH. I think the killer is either Rick or Madeline. We will see.

JUDY
JUDY

TOTALLY AGREE

Alan
Alan

It’s Madeline. And I’m guessing Rick knows it and is using his position as D.A. to help railroad Franco so that he can’t interfere with their plans to steal Nina’s money.

CeeCee
CeeCee

That, Alan, is the most plausible reasoning. I have said this from the onset…….with soaps, though? Hard to tell. I wish it were either MadMaddie or Rick…of the two, Madeline is most likely to exit, albeit I can’t stand Rick.

Harry
Harry

Madeline is the most useless and pointless concept since the invention of the Pet Rock. I never realized what a horrible actress Donna Mills is until she arrived in Port Charles, and I will be happy never to see that red eye shadow again.

Leah

They put as much effort into his murder story as they did the character of Silas himself. It’s sad to say but after 14 years on ABC he was treated to no story as Silas for the whole past year and a lackluster quick exit that practically screams that RC didn’t even care that Michael was there at all. Very disappointing to this fan. However, there is still the petition to get them to right this wrong:

There is only 4 Days Left with the Petition closing on 8/29 so if you want to Sign and Join the Over 13,000 others who have signed then please do. Every voice counts, every signature matters. Thanks to everyone:

I’ll sign a petition to keep him OFF the show. Nice guy, average actor and his character sucked!

I like Michael Easton. Silas was a bore though. I’d like to just move on from all these OLTL characters actually and take Ava & Nina with them.

I disagree, Timm. He’s a good, albeit, understated actor who was never given a chance on General Hospital.
I do agree with you that his character was sadly lacking. Heck, I bet Michael himself would agree with you.

I liked Michael Easton as John McBain and as Silas when he first came to Port Charles. He had chemistry with Kelly Monaco, Michelle Stafford and Kristen Alderson, but zero with Maura West (love her) and Hayley Erin. He was totally wasted for months and hardly ever seen and we are suppose to care about a murder mystery??? Michael is talented and will find employment elsewhere.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Wait…its too soon to reveal who killed Silas…this is GH so it suppose to drag out for months…then in 2016 its revealed the vampire did it or the ghost of Connie who frames Ava for killing her…we fans need more time to nitpick and bitch and moan about how we hate this story and wish it would end…lol

TMJ

I can’t remember when I cared less about a murder mystery on a show I watch. In this equation, Silas is the only character I like. Is it possible that they all committed the murder together and they can all go to prison together as well? I would not be upset if every one of them disappeared from my screen forever.

Ces
Ces

I second that!

mike

I miss Easton already, he and Howarth played well off each other. Madeline will be the killer or Rosalie.

Brian

No disrespect to anyone, but why did they kill Silas off for such a quick murder mystery? I’m assuming it has to do with the new writers changing the storyline.

Les

Great actor, poor character development and weak story…what a waste.

Eric O

PUH-leaze!!! They’ll tell us who it is, but none of the characters will know who done it for at least 8 months. Or maybe one person will find out, but they will be blackmailed into keeping their mouth shut for 8 months…

Mary SF

I just wished the story had been more organic to the canvas. It seems to me this killing Silas was merely a way to advance other plot points rather than be real murder mystery. The only mystery here is why they fired a talent like ME for a story that basically had no legs–everything that came out during the investigation could have come out in other ways. The only twist I would like to see, is finding out it all a dream and Silas is alive and well and living in Paris with Robin–LOL

CeeCee

Right on the mark, Mary…great post.

Michael was let go not fired..
It was rather quickly done and the writers need to jam to write a story for his exit, unexpected for all.
I like the story, it has revealed many thing and opened doors for further stories from it..

Mary SF
Mary SF

O please suooo give me a freakin’ break– there is no difference between being “let go” and being fired. I understand you obsessive need to defend all things GH, but ME was let go because they wanted to kill off his character, not the other way around, And as I said in my post, if you read it properly, was there were a number
of ways for all those interesting reveals to come out without killing the character off– watch Days and see how a proper murder mystery is written, there is no comparison to writing a

Mary SF
Mary SF

sorry press submit by mistake–as I was saying there is no comparison to a proper murder mystery and one done as way to advance other plots. It had it moments yes, but I still think it was a shame they “let go” a talented actor for this sad story line– and Ric being the killer makes it worse, because they just threw another character under the bus by writing him into a corner—that is another actor who will be “let go”– trust me whatever job you are doing, if they let you go–you’ve been fired.

Shay
Shay

Touche’, MarySF! Why the magnificent Michael Easton had to be sacrificed for this soporific storyline when there was such an abundance of worthless characters who deserved to be murder victims is beyond comprehension. Personally, me thinks that Port Charles needs a serial killer to clear the town of its many abysmal citizens, and I’d start with Sappy first! (Then Nina….Val-Chops…..Kiki….Jordan….Grossalie….and Alexis!)

I ffwded through most of yesterday. Tell me, why isn’t Kiki the least bit pissed off? I can’t stand her.

Kiki is not pissed-off because her character is stupid ..
the Kiki character is absent of much- and her being even upset would ruin the mundane character lol

She was just being Kiki..

I am going with Ric did it?? nawww lol

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hi, su. I missed you…did you miss me? LOL. nawww, right?
Well, I do tend to think MadMaddie or Rick did it. Perhaps, working in concert? I think MadMaddie suspected Nina getting too chummy with Silas. She was confiding in him about the crying baby in her head and her hallucinations. Madeline and Rick had a lot to lose…Nina’s patrimony….worth millions. Billions, even? Then again, that’s what we are expected to believe. My money’s on Caleb….another doppelgänger? ‘Silas’ shall return…..

Timmm

Ric if his contract is up. Other than that, he will continue to work with Sonny and be buddies!

Jenn

I really enjoyed the courtroom stuff though I got bored with the murder mystery pretty quick. I didn’t like Silas so it isn’t really important to me who killed him. I think Morgan has appeared the most guilty but suspect the murderer is someone who hasn’t even been teased yet. Meh!

Iakovos

Wrap it up and clean it up. Love Donna Mills, but why use her once in a blue moon. No suspense if she is the killer. The 50th anniversary was so fun but in the last year or so, the stories have just been lame. good moments throughout but the forced families, some live/some come back to life inconsistencies, the drawn out Fluke story. Just fix it, please. There is some top talent in Port Charles. Do not waste it on over-the-top silliness.

su0000
su0000

Donna has been very busy with an internet soap and other stuff..
She is on-call with GH, not a regular..
and-
The top talent/vets have been being used since the Luke exit..
GH since after Fluke/Luke has been vintage RC, good stuff..
the 50th will be archived as a phenomenal soap story ever, as said by reporters.

There is a lot of good with GH, but some people tend to habitually complain only of what they don’t like and never compliment the good.. crazy huh..

nancy dillingham

I really WANT it to be KIKI…she needs to go….perhaps she has some of her uncle’s murderous traits in her?

Hope this will be the end for this character….

Laurie

Morgan did not know Denise was Ava. He did not have enough motive,besides the affair.
I think it was Avas’ mother.Not too many people knew about Ava/Denise. The others are too obvious.
Also,I read somewhere that Ava had changed the paternity to show Sonny was the father and its really Morgan. Bet Avas’ mom knew that too. Will she show up to support Ava?

CeeCee
CeeCee

Ava will get out of this. I love your idea that Morgan is Avery’s daddy, Laurie……just to stick it to Mini-Me. Anybody but Sonny. I would love for his orange chin to drop to the floor in shock. How dare he throw Ava down with a single sweep?! He is the last to huff and puff with disdain. He sits on his tainted “Henry VIII” throne and lords it over Ava? They are two peas in a pod….so alike, it’s sickening.
I am not exculpating Ava, by any means. They both need to go to Tyburn….
I know, I know; the downfall of Sonny, just as Victor Newman, will happen when elephants nest in trees…..or as Gran says; when two Sundays come together.

Who is Ava’s mother?

Took the words right out of my mouth, Harry. It’s a losing battle.
Never do I use that word. As children, and, there are six of us, we were forbidden to use the word; or else. …..

I have watch General Hospital for 24 years. & I will not give up on it now I’m really praying that the new writers bring fresh new life 2 General Hospital. I’m starting to see Jeanne’s name on the credit. I truly hope that they do mean that they want to get back to core characters we don’t want to lose general hospital with the longest running soap opera so far that we have left. Fingers crossed

Tima

Wasn’t really a mystery as to who the killer could be since Nina, Franco, Morgan, and Ava were huge red herrings. That left Madeline and Rick. With Madeline having a penchant for murder and the actress being a pop in/pop out character she seemed like the best bet. Not to mention I’m the type that loves murder mysteries and this one was just horrible TBH. Now that this storyline is over can Jason please find out who he is before marrying Liz.

General Hospital Releases Extended Promo “We Have To Lean Into Hope”

As the ABC daytime drama series, General Hospital, continues to be preempted by the impeachment hearings of President Donald Trump, and episodes are not being made available on any other platform at this time, two videos were posted in last 24 hours to the official General Hospital social media accounts.

To tide you over (while you are clamoring for all-new episodes of GH) the soap released an extended promo featuring the folks in Port Charles filled with lots of joy, hope, and love.  It’s main message, “We have to lean into hope” – as the series tells us to “sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.”

Courtesy/ABC

Take a look at some of the reunions, hugs, and special moments featuring the Q’s, Corinthos, Cassadine and other clans in the promo below.

In addition, Finola Hughes (Anna) and Michael Easton (Finn) along with Jophielle Love (Violet) were featured in another video, where the key messaging to fans is that they are currently taping all-new episodes of GH, and that viewers should keep tuned ans posted to GH’s social channels for updates on when new episodes of GH will return.

As of late, GH has been on the upswing in the ratings, too.  So, it’s always frustrating for everyone when weeks of preemptions hit the daytime viewers  experience to enjoy the on-going stories of the soaps.
