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

Courtesy/ABC

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?

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. 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… Read more »

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.

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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

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.

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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
Guest
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

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!)

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…..

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!

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
Guest

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..

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?

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?

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.

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly past away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

Courtesy/ABC

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

Courtesy/ABC

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.
