Who Will Be Revealed As GH's Hospital Killer?

After several patients, and Dr. Mayes, have met their maker thanks to the mysterious Derisifol serial killer, General Hospital is set to reveal the identity of who is behind the killing spree this week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Fans of the soap have been having their own ideas of who it could be and a sampling of those has lead to these potential culprits  1)  Nurse Amy Driscoll (Risa Dorken) – Could this  busybody nurse have some deep hidden nursing vendetta?  2) Dr. Andre Maddox – While he seems cool and collected, perhaps this therapist feels he is saving dying patients from suffering by “mercy killings”, and Dr. Mays got in the way?  3) Dr. Liesl Obrecht –  Has Liesl gone off the deep end after losing the Chief of Staff position to Monica Quartermaine?  4) None of the above – perhaps everyone is off the beaten track and GH will serve up a shocking surprise!

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on sale now, GH co-head writer Jean Passanante offered up this tease as to the identify of the kiler: “We went through a few different scenarios.  We came up with the one that gives us the most impact.”

Jean added: “We wanted it to be someone who matters to the canvas in a bigger way rather than somebody we brought on for that exact reason, someone who story has ramifications for other stories, as well, and we realized that we did have the character in place whose motivations make sense.”

Courtesy/ABC

Passanante was quick to point out that the motivation will remain unknown to the audience for the time being.  She also related that once GH viewers know the identify of the killer, they are going to worry about who could be the next victim when the “said” character is in proximity with another one.

So, who are you betting on to be revealed as the hospital killer, and then what do you think their motivation fo the killings are? Share your theories in the comment section below!

This is the weak point of the show right now, let it be Andre and wrap it up already.

If only. This was the worst twist I have seen since Jelly replaced RC.
Just – L A M E. Makes no sense at all. I swear, someone somewhere has simply programmed a computer to develop the various plot lines. Cheaper than hiring writers.

It’s Paul Hornsby.

Judging from Passanante’s remarks, it sure sounds as though Obrecht is the killer. At least there is some action at the hospital… 🙂 🙂 🙂

Dr. O is way to obvious and it wouldn’t be a shocker reveal in the least.

Right on, Lou. Just finished watching today’s epidode….finally!!!
Now, we are to think it’s Paul? Why? Doesn’t make any sense. Amy is just there gor good measure.
But, Andre, who has no feelings for Jordan whatsoever ( he had a thing for Anna), looks more and more like the culprit. I think the only reason he’s ‘in’ with the Commish is to glean first hand knowledge of what’s what.
Will Hayden get blamed for Lizzie’s tumble down that dark abyss called stairs? Were they stairs?Did anyone see them arguing?

Hey, James,
This is a hard one. Mike has a point….I do not like stiff-as-a-board Andre. By the same token, I love Liesl…..constant anger, disdain, lunacy and all. LOL.
Needless to say, TPTB are toying with our senses….brain teasers, they are. LOL….And, here we are, speculating.
Personally, I hope it’s Amy. If we think about it, what is her purpose? I don’t think it’s a coincidence she appeared when she did.
However, Amy may have been placed right where she is in order to distract us from the real killer. Later, James.

The killer is the lizard…and Elizabeth—why Liz…she was bitten by the Lizard who turned her into this nutty nurse ELIZARDbeth…the Lizard will be revealed using mind control on ELIZARDbeth to help it knock off its victims…Roxy is obsessively in love with Finn and is killing off patients and staff jealous of the attention Finn gives to them-lol

You are so funny…Tears streaming down my face….my husband says you should take this stuff on the road.
I knew it was you in my inbox….ELIZARDbeth….oh, my Lord!!!!!
Remember, you and I already surmised Roxie is really Finn’s wife. So, your theory makes more sense to me than what’s fed us, so far.
Please don’t stop entertaining us!!!!!

@Michael ( not Fairman).
Exactly. The same could be said about the Fluke storyline….it was such a debacle; such a convoluted plot that I said, at the time, the story evolved as they went along. Not a good thing, as far as I’m concerned. The end result looked like a patchy quilt.
No rhyme or reason. I hope the quilt keeps Luke warm, at least.

Kittyninja

Then how can anyone explain why they were going to inject Bobby , and instead injected Lucas ?

lou piikes
Guest

Lucas injected himself. He’s tired of being thrown back into the closet and being the token gay character on canvas. He’ll be the first gay serial killer. And his motivation for the murders is attention and recognition.

Either Monica Quartermaine or Griffin Monroe.

Monica would make a nice shocking twist…maybe her forgotten boyfriend that judge will get her off on a technically…he asks why she do it-‘because these dumb writers cant think of a good story for an iconic character like mine so they dump this pointless(just day characters were killed off) piece of nonsense on me!’ responds a frustrated Monica!

Ces
Guest

Who cares? None of the 80 characters on this show have been killed off so what’s the point? Kill Jordan and then I’ll start getting happy! Make it Andre or Griffin as the murderer and I’ll see promise, otherwise this story is a waste of time.

i hope the killer is the lizard who can make puncture wounds with its teeth that looks like needles-he can knock off Amy, Sabrina, Jordan, Andre and so many other worthless characters and i will declare GH the best soap ever!!!!

CLH

CLH

Right?! Useless character and no investment in who it is, because no one we care about or even know for that matter was a victim. Bobbie and Lucas are rarely on so that doesn’t make any impact either.

Ces

lol Jim!

CLH – agreed. Not one major character has been killed … they may as well have killed Lucas since we haven’t seen him since forever!

The writers came up with a killer who gave them “the most impact”? Um, they would actually have to tell a story for there to be an impact: this has been nothing more than contract players talking about never before seen people dying off camera and Valerie walking her beat around the hospital. Yet another fail for this writing team. I’m guessing their idea of an “impact” will be making the barely developed character of Andre the killer because he had a crush on Anna (who’s currently off-camera, this show’s favorite place to tell story these days) and is in… Read more »

I agree with you, Alan. This story has had no suspense for me. Such tales do when key characters are taken from us, with those deaths exposing new secrets and motives. (And no resurrections months later, please!) This could have been a good opportunity to clean house (as morbid as that sounds) as there are too many characters and stories for strong engagement.

I remember the Mombassa (?) Fever story line of the late 1970s/early 1980s. It was scary. And the revelation a young boy everyone loved was the carrier was stunning.

Lassa Fever–which is a real disease.

Oh for the days of Douglas Marland! (Oh, hell—Oh for the days of any headwriter of even marginal competence.)

“We went through a few different scenarios. We came up with the one that gives us the most impact.” For those of you who don’t speak the language, this is Passanante-speak for “We created the story without the slightest idea who might be the killer, and we’re still making it up as we go along. If we’re lucky, it will have an impact anyway.”

Only if the impact they were seeking was complete revulsion of the audience at the stupidity and complete lack of logic in the twist. Just B A D. Ugh!

Valerie is who i thought as well…just to get rid of the character!!-lol

Caitie
Guest
Caitie

But that theory is not supported by how very hard Valerie worked to keep her mother alive right up to the moment Patricia died. The reason she was so upset that her mother had left her convalescent home was that she was worried that doing so would weaken her mother and shorten her life. Valerie was trying to prolong her mother’s life – wanting to cherish every moment she had with her – not end it. And her grief-sticken anger against Luke was because she felt Luke’s actions had ended her mother’s life prematurely.

I am pretty sure its Amy the Nosy Nurse. She has no part but yet they are giving her some significance here. She has to be secretly related to someone and getting revenge for something. Something is definitely weird about her

Celia

Hey, Vicki.
Maybe it is Paul, maybe not. I don’t think TPTB would flash previews of the killer, though. It could be anybody. The cufflinks may be a completely different case….not related to the killings.
I guess, I just want it to be Andre. He’s bipolar to me. Imagine, “the bipolar Psychiatrist”. Sweet irony!!
Andre is hot and cold. I think today was the only time I saw him as human; with humanly mundane characteristics; such as smiling. He’s usually such a serious sourpuss.
Maybe it will be someone we least expected…..someone mentioned Monica?

Robin

I think it will be Heather Webber. Next victim is Elizabeth, but Franco will save her in time.

Well, we know who it is now. So that is how AVA will get away from her crimes. I was right about Elizabeth though. He had a weird look on his face at the police dept. when they brought in the cuff link.

Jimmy

I don’t think it’s Amy or Obrecht. Amy is disliked by pretty much the entire fan base, and it would be nice if she were the next victim. As for Leisl, I think it’d be way too obvious for her to be the killer, and after trying to morph her into a more palatable and “likable” (I use that term very loosely) character, to undo it all now would be pointless. I still think the killer is Andre. He’s relatively new to town, we don’t know much about his past, he’s inserted himself into the investigation and has plenty of… Read more »

One of the sticking points in this story is working around the night Lucas was attacked. Amy, Andre and others (including Valerie – mentioned above by someone) were all at the Nurses Ball when Lucas was being attacked. Dr. O was NOT! In fact she was seen at the hospital in that time frame – very upset about the way she had been treated at the Ball. Depending on their choice as killer, I’m curious to see how the writers work around the guests at the Ball. As well, I doubt it’s Amy. She simply isn’t important enough to have… Read more »

I don’t know…if it’s a character I like then it won’t be that thrilling since we’ll obviously lose the character. It would be insane to ruin a legacy character’s reputation, like some feel was done to Luke. So, hopefully it’s not Monica. I would think it was Amy because she’s non essential and it wouldn’t be a loss. They tried to duplicate the vibe of Any Vining…didn’t come close. I’d root for it to be her…but the writers just said someone Who matters to the canvas. I vp don’t know…interesting impossible-but-it’s-a-soap twist? A Cassadine? Kevin Collins believe dead twin?

And, I’ll just say it now, if they make Monica the killer, they might as well just kill the show.

I hope its Franco! We dont need his grimy hands all over Liz! She needs to be with Nicholas! Even if Nick and Ava have chemistry, what Ava did to Morgan in regards to switching his medicine is diabolical! Nick hasnt been to clean this past year and a half but he is a school boy compared to Ava!

What if the killer is little Jake Webber? We still don’t have any idea what was done to him on Cassidine island. What if he was brainwashed to do this? I think Jake could easily pass by in the hospital without raising any red flags.

I never thought of that as a possibility, but what an interesting one it was! That would be quite the story twist, and it would bring to light what happened to him on the island – a plot point that has seemingly been dropped in recent weeks. Excellent theory!

Yeah, I like your premise, Rachel. But, he’s a kid. How would he get the drug, first of all; and then administer it or inject it into the IV? That’s a monumental task for a kid.
Unless he really Stavros. LOL.

Well, I agree with many of you, but how about an Agatha Christie, Orient Express twist, as in “they ALL did it!” It could have been a joint venture between Jordan, Andre, Aaron, T. J., Kristina, Parker, Parker’s wife (if she exists), Nurse Amy, and Claudette. And maybe we should toss in Nathan if he continues to be shown as such a violent bully. Then we can be rid of the whole bunch at once!

Jimmy
Guest
Jimmy

Quite honestly, if it meant getting rid of half the cast, I wouldn’t complain at all. Each character you mentioned is non-essential to the show and I would not mind if every one of them was booted. Throw in Griffin, Hayden, Valerie, Sabrina and Joe too.

Marie
Guest
Marie

Maybe Paul isn’t acting alone. Maybe Andre IS somewhat in on the job along with Paul. It might explain why they kept showing Dr. Finn witnessing their conversations today. Andre possibly mad at WSB for something. Maybe Paul is rogue WSB or Interpol or something. Maybe Paul and Andre are one of Robert’s other storylines. Maybe he is looking into them based on feedback he had received from Anna. They were kind of showing Paul’s temper recently whenever his other children were mentioned. I have no idea how all of this ties in.

A Soap Murder Mystery..
It is the worst written soap murder mystery in soap history..

It is 100% empty of mystery, suspense, intruge, no imagination, no train of thought, it rolls in LaLa Land, it stinks..

I have never witnesses a Murder Mystery being as empty as the’ Hospital Killer ‘ written by Jean and Shelly..

yes– a Soap Opera Murder Mystery that is completely empty of intense intruge ..

Not been watching the show for weeks now and only catching up via blogs, here and DC site on what’s been happening. My guess is Franco. Where can they possibly go with this character as he has no connections to anyone and his evil is better when used. Sure, he’s Jason’s brother (did they disconnect them in my absence?) but ever since he calmed down and was mad sort of sane the character is duller than one of the corpses on the show. He would have repercussions everywhere if it’s revealed to be him. Jason, Liz, Carly, Nina, lisel, and… Read more »

I just watched all of last week’s episodes. I am hoping that the hospital killer goes after Amy next. Having Amy be the killer is not all that thrilling, since many of us are not invested in the character. Actually, most of us are not investing in this storyline since we were never really introduced to any of the murder victims. Andre is becoming too obvious. I very much doubt it is Paul. I hope it is not Dr. O-LOVE HER! Bottom line, I can’t think of any storyline that I am invested in, right now. Joss’ donor storyline is… Read more »

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.

GH’s Kin Shriner Talks on Franco’s Demise, Scott’s Budding Romance with Obrecht, and His Enduring On-Screen Partnership with Genie Francis

One of the most beloved actors in the history of General Hospital, Kin Shriner, currently finds his alter-ego, Scott Baldwin, in a new budding on-screen romance with none other than Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati).

This comes on the heels of Scott learning the devastating news that his son, Franco Baldwin was shot and killed, thus writing-off the ABC daytime drama series, for now, popular actor, Roger Howarth.

Photo: JPI

Throughout his now almost 44-year-run on the ABC daytime drama series, Kin Shriner has brought his unique acting chops that helped mold the character of legal eagle Scott Baldwin into the humorous, at times cutthroat, endearing and many times heartbreaking character we have all come to love.’

 

In a brand new exclusive virtual sit-down interview with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s The Michael Fairman Channel, Shriner opens up about his history with GH and the times he stepped away to take on roles on Texas and As the World Turns, and then back again to the town of Port Charles and GH.

Photo: ABC

As well, Kin reveals his reaction to learning the news that Roger Howarth would be exiting the show as his TV son and how he shot the key emotional scene where Laura (Genie Francis) tells Scott that Franco had died.  Shriner shares that he does not see how when Howarth returns to the show in as a yet-to-be-revealed character, that it would be a stretch if the two were some how related, but that he will miss working with the talented Howarth as a scene-partner.

Photo: JPI

As to the women in Scott’s life, Kin addresses each of them from: Lucy (Lynn Herring), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Dominque (Shell Danielson), Laura (Francis), Ava (Maura West) – to which the character could never get that close to – and now Liesl (Gati), and working opposite all the powerhouse actresses who portray them.

Photo: ABC

For fans of General Hospital who have watched the series for decades, Kin also shares memories of working with his late TV parents, Peter Hansen (Lee), Susan Brown (Gail) and his friend and former GH castmate John Reilly (Sean), plus backstage stories with his longtime scene partner, Genie Francis.

Watch the entire conversation with Kin below.
