On Wednesay’s episode of General Hospital, it was a a welcome sight for fans of the series when Anna Devane showed up back at Kelly’s Diner and in Port Charles, thus welcoming the return of Finola Hughes.
After Anna catches-up with Griffin (Matt Cohen) and then Jordan (Vinessa Antoine) about how horrified she is that Julian Jerome (William deVry) was found not guilty of all charges in the murders of Duke Lavery and Carlos Rivera, she is more determined than ever to get justice. When speaking with Jordan, Anna learns how Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn seemed “drunk” on the witness stand that helped throw the trial. Anna decides she wants to meet up with Paul (Richard Burgi) and discuss the case, but she looks suspicious.
Anna heads to the Metro Court Hotel to see Paul, but when he is not there. So, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) lets her into his room. She finds a file on the hospital murders, and then lo and behold … finds the cufflink that matches that of the killer!
Meanwhile, Paul is visiting his catatonic daughter Susan (Alina Pattra) on her birthday at the Celestial Height, the mental institution she is housed in. Tracy (Jane Elliot) has followed him there, and has no idea what she is walking in on! She overhears Paul tell Susan that he murdered Sloane and everyone else at General Hospital because of her … he did it all for her. When Susan hears Tracy outside her room, she is rattled, and that is when Paul finds Tracy who is trying to get away.
A cat and mouse game ensues between a unglued and paranoid Paul, and Tracy who he has asked to dinner to help him cope with what has befallen Susan and how deeply affected he has been by Sabrina’s murder, which Tracy originally thought was because Sabrina was around the same age as Susan.
Tracy, who is feeling very threatened and hides it well, agrees to dinner, but first Paul takes her to his hotel room so he can finds his wallet. Then, he says they aren’t going anywhere for dinner, and lock the door to his room!
So, are you glad Anna is back on the canvas? Will Anna save Tracy? Will Paul confess all right to Tracy? What do you think about what you know so far of the rationale for Paul killing so many patients at GH, having to do with his daugther, Susan?
