It looks like some clarity, but with still many unanswered questions, has come to GH audiences on just what is going on with Dr. Hamilton Finn (Michael Easton).
On Tuesday’s episode, Finn admits to Hayden (Rebecca Budig) that he is dying! At first, she questions him about it, and he comes forth with: “I was traveling, and I contracted a rare disease. You don’t know the name of it, and there’s no cure. But I discovered a way to moderate the progress of the illness.”
When Hayden questions Finn if that is what is going on with the syringe and the vial of unknown medication, he admits to her that it’s a drug protocal that is keeping him stable, but it’s becoming less and less effective, and at some point, it just won’t work at all. He also clarifies that it is not a contagious disease that he suffers from.
Hayden has gone to the GH locker room to retrieve Finn’s research notebook for him. Later, he tells her he wants to do good work and help people. Hayden seemingly feels badly for Finn, because her father had bankrupted the medical foundation Finn was working on to do just that.
However, Hayden pries even further and tries to get Finn to admit that his wife also died as of a result of this same illness. Finn shoots her a look, and does not confirm. or deny it.
So, what do you think of the revelation that Finn is dying? Do you think Hayden and Finn will become a romantic duo in the very near future? What do you think happened to Finn’s late wife? Share your theories in the comment section below.
