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.”

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.

Elizabeth

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.

Celia

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?

Jamesj75

Lou, you were right! 🙂

These two madhatter’s better NOT make Monica Quartermaine the killer just for shock value and a story for Lesley Charleson. No doubt they’ll make up it’s onset early alzheimers. OMG!!!

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.

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

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

Celia
Celia

@Jimh( leave it to beaver).
Hey, Jimmy,
…taking a break from the chaos….kids, kids and more kids …
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!!!!!

Celia
Celia

@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
Kittyninja

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

lou piikes
lou piikes

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.

CLH
CLH

Yeah, doesn’t fit. Sounds like they keep changing the ending, which messes up continuity.

Lou Piikes
Lou Piikes

Either Monica Quartermaine or Griffin Monroe.

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

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
Ces

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.

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

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
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!

Alan
Alan

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 a (mostly off-camera) relationship with Jordan.

Iakovos
Iakovos

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.

Michael (not Fairman)
Michael (not Fairman)

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.”

Elizabeth
Elizabeth

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!

Amy…but it should be Val. She kind of has a built in/semi-believable motive if she doesn’t want other people to suffer like her mother did…

JK

LET IT BE VALERIE……SENSELESS STORY THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN OVER LONG AGO…..AND SO SHOULD HER CHARACTER…..SO MUCH WASTED TIME …LETS HOPE THE STORIES IMPROVE SOON!

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

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

Caitie
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.

CLH
CLH

Wish Valerie and Jordan would go.

Michelle

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

Marie
Marie

I didn’t suspect Amy because she performed in the Nurse’s Ball while Lucas was attacked.

Vicki
Vicki

I think it’s Paul! He already got away with killing Sloane , has access to crime scenes. He wax not at the ball where most were.

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

Sure seemed like it today, didn’t it?

Vicki
Vicki

You are right…I’m sure

Celia
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
Robin

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

Robin
Robin

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
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 opportunity. I’m not a fan of this character, and would much rather see both Jordan and Anna with someone else. This would be a good way to take him off the show.

However, I’m slowly starting to think it’s Griffin. Based on what Jean said about the reveal of the killer having a ripple effect in other stories, Griffin seems the most logical because he is connected to another story right now too, whereas Amy, Obrecht and Andre are not.

Plus, we know he’s abandoned his priesthood before, so now he may have turned to the dark side permanently. His goal, to take patients out of their misery, might stem from his own desire to have died when he was shot because he betrayed his faith and let himself down by his choices. An internal struggle with external consequences.

Lisa
Lisa

I hope it’s Nina. I do not like the character and I really don’t like Michelle Stafford. She can not act and when she tries to, she interrupts the other actors lines…she’s a screen hog. I hope it’s her just to get rid of her.

Patrick
Patrick

i’ll go out on a limb as well… Michael did it! I want him gone

Linda
Linda

I want it to be that awful nurse Amy

Caitie
Caitie

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 the effect on the canvas the writers are indicating.

Contrary to some opinions, I’m looking forward to this story this week. And I think that knowing who the killer is can add needed interest and tension to the story as we consider motives and as we watch the killer near other characters.

RM
RM

I think Andre or even possibly Kevin, did anyone die while he was in the Greek adventure and isn’t he a coin collector?

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

No, NOT Kevin!

Jimmy

I like your theory, but you watch, it won’t be Kevin – it will be his supposedly dead evil twin brother Ryan Chamberlain back to terrorize Port Charles.

Marie

Wasn’t Kevin at the Nurse’s Ball with Laura during Lucas’ attack?

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

The killer is…the writers-lol

Of course, Jimmy. The writers!!!! Why didn’t I think of that?! I bet Roxie is their dear friend……working together.

Tony

I hope it’s several characcters, ala Murder on Orient Express. So they can get rid of Val, Obrect, Amy, Griff, NuCarlo! All terrible. Worst is Obrect’s character. One of Carlivati’s worst plot moves. Get rid of her! Stat.

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

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? Caleb…who arose from the dead in the hospital who we never saw again? (To be confused with Dr. Finn?)

Anne
Anne

These teasing comments discourage me. I think this storyline’s conclusion will be as poorly executed as the story itself.

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

Timmm
Timmm

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!

Letemeatc8ke
Letemeatc8ke

Or Griffin. Give her a good guy.

Timmm
Timmm

Its going to be GrAnna!

Rachel

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.

Jimmy
Jimmy

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!

Kittyninja
Kittyninja

Creepy but he was at the nurses ball , singing with Franco

Celia
Celia

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.

Soaphound
Soaphound

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
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
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 ..

Lorraine

I think it’s Kevin don’t ask me why but I just have a feeling.Just like he wrote a book about Laura without her knowing till now.He’s been on front burner for awhile now and I think he has other secrets.

Marie

I thought of that too but I believe he was at the Nurse’s Ball (with Laura) during Lucas’ attack.

If we’re looking f or someone that would make a big impact and would affect the others what about Sonny?

It’s Paul Hornsby

Paul

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 even Jake. Franco being the killer would a) bring back the fire to the character that fans don’t really care for b) give the actor the meat he has so proven he can chew as Todd on OLTL c) potentially give the program the sinister aspect it lost when the Casadines turned cartoony and James Franco last played the character.

Motivation? It’s simple. Jason. Just like the last time all of Franco’s motivations come down to him. Franco has been without true attention for too long. Been rejected left right and center and not been shown the “attention” he believes he deserves. Plus it would give Jason more to do as well trying to protect all the towns womwhen.

It’s FRANCO

Rebecca1

He’s not Jason’s brother he’s Scotty and Heather’s son and is just starting a sweet relationship with Liz. I don’t think it’s him; hope not.

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 boring. Sam and Jason are a total snooze fest. Morgan and Kiki are two village idiots. Could care less for Hayden. Has anyone thought that perhaps Nik is not dead-considering he faked his own death a few months ago and everyone in Port Charles returns from the dead? Lulu, please put a sock in it. The recast is just not working. Kristina, like her idiot brother Morgan, needs reform school-so disrespectful. I do like Alexis and Julian, however.

I don’t think it’s Paul. They wouldn’t make Tracy’s ex-husband and Dillon’s father a serial killer (altho he did kill Sloane). I want it to be Jordan so they’d arrest her, then Anna would come back and return to the Commish job!! (Plus, she drives me nuts, so I’d like her gone)! LOL

Lorraine

Well from what I read it’s Paul

Barbara

It’s Paul, possibly has something to do with his Daughter, He gets crazy when someone mentions her name and he claims Sloan raped her, maybe the GH staff did not help her and he wants revenge or he is working on behalf of someone in the mob.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL Flips The Switch In Sonny-Centric Episode Featuring Standout Performances

On Monday, in honor of Maurice Benard’s 25th anniversary as Sonny Corinthos on ABC’s General Hospital, the daytime drama took a look at what life would have been like if Sonny had not fallen in to a life of crime and in the mob. The standalone episode featured the return of Dominic Zamprogna as Sonny’s eldest son, Dante.

But in the twist on ‘soap-reality’, Dante was now the ascending mobster in Port Charles, and Sonny was a sergeant in the police department in Brooklyn married to Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero).  It all beings when Sonny remembers being 18-years-old and that fatal day when he shot Vincent Marino.  The young Sonny is played by Maurice’s real-life son.   Sonny then dreams of what would have happened to him if he never pulled that trigger.

Sonny is now a by-the-book cop, who visits his son Dante along with Olivia.  When they get there, Dante is now married to Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is his trophy wife.  Dante is working for the Jerome family – enter Julian (William deVry) and Ava (Maura WestO – and we quickly learn that “Jason Smith” is the hit man who works for them.  And, wouldn’t you know?  Seems like Ava and Jason have a “thing” going on … sealed with a kiss.

Now disturbed by his son’s life of crime, Sonny goes to the PCPD to talk to the police commissioner, who is now Anna Devane (Finola Hughes).  In the story, Anna is very inward, depressed, and more.  We find out that her daughter, Robin died of complications from AIDS in the 90’s, in which Anna has never recovered from.   We also learn at the PCPD that Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is the current District Attorney.

Carly (Laura Wright) enters the scene, and she is still married to A. J. Quartermaine.  Sonny takes a liking to her and vice-versa.  We later learn that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is back working for the DEA and Dante has gone undercover to bring down the Jeromes; so the entire territory is under his control.

Dante and Sam have a major falling out, as he is excited by the power he will have once he rids the Jeromes out of his business.  Sam has had it. She doesn’t want to dress like this, be his trophy wife, or have this kind of life. When Dante walks out, an upset Sam is alone with Jason, and the two connect.

In the conclusion of the episode, Dante shoots Jason on the pier, a scene which Sonny walks in on.  Sonny and his son struggle for the gun, and once again Dante is shot, just like in the original version of the story years ago, but with the twist of the struggle.  Olivia comes running onto the pier and sees Dante shot, and yells at Sonny the signature line, “You shot your own son!”

CourtesyABC

At the end of the dream, Sony goes back to the mark in time where he decides whether or not to pull the trigger on Marino with Mike (Max Gail) and him looking on at the young version of himself.  In the end, Sonny still pulls the trigger.

The episode featured stand-out performances by: Dominic Zamprogna (how great was it to see him again, and to see him play Dante’s dark side), Maurice Benard (who illustrated the other side of Sonny, more reserved, and delivered a heartbreaking speech as Sonny to Dante about his life being abused, and the choices he made), Kelly Monaco (who showed a woman unhappy with the outward shell she had created and been a part of), and Finola Hughes,who gave us a different look  at what life would have been like for Anna had Robin been taken from her years ago.  Additionally, it was nice to see the entire cast deliver in support of making this episode work in the ‘flip the switch’ sequence of events.

So, what did you think of the Sonny-centric episode? Who was your favorite in it?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
