On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, it was the end of the line for Nurse Sabrina Santiago, when she was brutually murdered by the hospital serial killer, Paul Hornsby (Richard Burgi).
The death of Sabrina ends the four year plus run of her portrayer, Teresa Castillo. In story, after Monica (Leslie Charleson) finds herself in the clutches of Paul along with a syringe filled with derisifol, he injects her in the neck. After she crumbles to the floor, Paul mutters under his breath, “how she brought this on herself.” But once again Paul bumps into Sabrina, who has now been newly reinstated at General Hospital to the nursing staff.
Sabrina goes past Paul and finds Monica needing urgent help as she starts CPR. She then asks DA Hornsby, what happened? Paul lies and says he found Monica, but was on his way out of her office to get some help. Sabrina begs Paul to hurry and bring help. Next, when Paul never returns to the scene, Sabrina calls for a crash team. When the doctor arrives he finds an injecton site on Monica’s neck.
Next, Sabrina rushes out into the hospital corridor to find Paul to alert him that Monica was injected/attacked! Unfortunately for Sabrina, she was once again at the wrong place at the wrong time, as she suddenly realizes Paul never called for back-up! As a nervous Paul grabs for his phone, a surgical glove comes out of his suit jacket pocket! Sabrina realizes she is next to the serial killer, and as she tries to back away from him as her hysteria mounts, he grabs her and from their brutally begins to dispense with her!
Meanwhile at the Metro Court, Michael (Chad Duell) tells Tracy (Jane Elliot) he plans on asking Sabrina to marry him tonight and even picked out quite the ring to give to her! Tracy approves of Michael and Sabrina together, but not Carly (Laura Wright). When Michael’s mother shows up and gets herself into the conversation, she tells Michael she thinks he is moving to fast with Sabrina, and that she wants him to feel an enduring and sustaining love with the woman he choses to marry. Carly goes on to say that thus far Sabrina’s love for Carlos (Jeffrey Vincent Parise) was obvious, even running away with him and having his baby!
Michael doesn’t care what his mother says. He is very excited to meet up with Sabrina after her shift at GH and propose to her. However, when we cut to the final shot of the episode, viewers see a dead Sabrina laid out on the hospital floor, as Michael sends her a text! As for Paul, a quite unglued DA shows up at Julian’s (William deVry) trial having just murdered Sabrina!
