144 August 1st, 2015 GENERAL HOSPITAL: Silas Is Murdered! Whodunit?

Courtesy/ABC

It was the end of the line for Dr. Silas Clay on Friday’s cliffhanger of an episode on General Hospital! 

And that means also the end of the line (although we suspect some flashbacks are in order) for fan favorite Michael Easton (Silas) who is out at the ABC daytime drama series. To open up the story with a major murder plot, following the on-screen exit this week of legacy series star, Anthony Geary Luke Spencer), GH murdered Silas.  Now we have the suspects who are mounting, and everyone looking guilty and needing drinks after committing the act, or stumbling upon the scene.

One thing was clear, Silas got a knife to the back!  The person immediately looking most guilty is his ex-wife Nina Clay (Michelle Stafford), who found out earlier in the episode from Franco (Roger Howarth) that it was Silas who kidnapped baby Avery and pinned the crime on her to help Ava survive her cancer with Avery’s bone marrow.  At the end of Friday’s airshow, Nina was holding the knife in her hand sitting over Dr. Clay’s lifeless body as Franco happened upon the scene.  But might he have gotten there earlier himself …  even though he followed Nina out of the hospital knowing she was going to confront Silas?

Then there is Denice AKA Ava (Maura West), who we know will kill anyone to keep her identity a secret, and to avoid prison time for murdering Connie Falconeri!  With Silas armed with the truth of her true identify and complicit in resurrecting her in the first place, and furious to find Ava in bed with Morgan (Bryan Craig), he calls their daughter Kiki (Haley Erin) saying he has to talk to her ASAP!  Ava clearly does not want her scam to come to light!

Elsewhere, Morgan who told Denice he has to stop Silas from telling Kiki that he is cheating on her … made his move to shut Silas up once and for all.   Later, we find Morgan very discombobulated at the Metro Court bar by Michael (Chad Duell).  Morgan is clearly shaken up.  Did he stab Silas?

Watch the final moments of Friday’s episode after the jump and a preview pick-up scene for Monday featuring: Michelle Stafford, Roger Howarth and Easton.  Then weigh-in:  Whodunit?  Who killed Silas Clay?  Any of the obvious suspects … or you think it was someone else like Ric (Rick Hearst) or Madeline (Donna Mills)?  Be our private investigators and name your top suspect and why in the comment section below!

    She didn’t do it, too easy. The serial killer did. Of course Morgan is a Coninthious and they NEVER pay for any thing. In the back no less. With all garbage this show has, we could have kept Silas and killed a lot of others Morgan ,Nina, Franco , Dense/ava. Half the show needed the knife in the back. I didn’t mind Silas. I doubt it was Sonny he shoots everyone in the face in cold blood.

    Morgan ‘done’ it….of course, ‘they’ want us to believe either he or Nina did it.
    I am glad, in a way, I won’t be here to witness another mysterious trail. Why did ‘they’ have to go and kill Silas?

    PS……Hmmmm! I’m thinking that perhaps Michael Easton will not, completely, disappear from the GH landscape.
    He may return as Stephen/Caleb, the Vampire. Is he truly dead? Was a stake driven through his heart? Did the power of the sun evaporate him? Was he doused with Holy Water? Caleb vanished and Dr. Clay was born, no? Never say never!!

    CeeCee kill off the one person no one really cares about canvas wise..and so…Denise/Ava again..you have all these powerhouse actors and they are wrote into a corner and then thrown into a who cares whodunnit into November sweeps silly story. Either RC did this out of spite or the new team is reworking story already and we see what this will lead to. ELLEN WHEELER EP..RIGHT NOW..ASAP..give her free reign and a workable budget.

    Morgan killed Silas. To bAd kiki will nEvEr know the truth about Ava ad Morgan and that stinks

    Rose replied

    Leslie…I’m truly beginning to wonder why I watch the show anymore. While I appreciate su”s undying loyalty to Ron, the writers have done a woefully poor job writing for the likes of Michael, Roger, Michelle, etc. I won’t even revisit Fluke anymore. And I just haven’t seen the “fun” in GH for a long time.

    ROSE LOONEY replied

    SINCE THEY GOT RID OF SILAS GH IS DONE!!!!WILL NEVER WATCH IT AGAIN

    CeeCee replied

    I did not realize there was a serial killer in Port Charles, Janet. He’s over yonder, in Genoa City, no? Now, I’m getting confused. LOL.
    Did MadMaddie, Nina, Ava or Morgan have time to do the deed? Each one of them was engaged doing something else; either talking to each other or with Franco. I think Nina found Silas on the floor with either the knife already embedded in his back and pulled it out (which does not sound feasible….she’d need a strong stomach to muster that); or she picked it up from the floor.
    Franco will wipe off the fingerprints and put the knife back on the floor. No? Not good? I tried!!
    The best guess is Rick. He somehow found out Silas held all the cards …..had to be eliminated. While everyone else was seen on stage, where was Rick? By the way, how did he or MadMaddie manage to get an exact replica of the baby blanket? How did they know what it looked like? I am not being facetious, I am curious.
    I have said it a million times…MadMaddie is the crazy viper, not Nina. I wonder if Miss Cruella De Vil is her kin? And here I thought Liesl was the worst. Well, who to choose, really! I wish Donna Mills had been written as a normal, concerned mother….I love her acting…especially when she and Maxie go at it. I really enjoyed their scene together.
    MadMaddie attempted to convince whomever that Nina had been a rebel child with mental issues. This thought was instilled in Nina’s brain…over and over. Lord only knows what Cruella did to her! This has been the woman’s lifetime chant, in order to get her withered hands on Nina’s money. I have also said that the mother and daughter relationship holds more than one dark nightmare for Nina, as a child, and then, a young woman, who spent half her life in a coma….thanks to MOMMY DEAREST.

    ….All packed….and, I can’t sleep. This site is addictive…hard to let go….like my coffee. Gee, Mr. Fairman, thanks a lot….LOL.
    I hope I can get on Hulu and catch a couple of episodes when possible……Vaarwel!

    So sad that they called Ellen Wheeler the doomsday slayer of GL..remember the death of that character by Phillip..and the shot of that cliff and the cell phone ringing and echoing..Ellen Wheeler knew what soaps needed..viewers resisted and the end of all our shows were heralded..now we have the same writers who wrote shows into a box writing them into a cup of soup container..really no room for mistakes or loss of viewers..if the networks want their shows they will buck up and change the genre or just throw a whole bunch of returning actors into implausible situations and throw the death of Caroline Brady on top of it for sympathy factor..i know where all that’s heading otherwise Sami wouldn’t even come back..and after that’s all said and done..no doze to watch further episodes. Bet this remark won’t make it on the blog. LOL

    I love Coronation Street…right now there is a widow who is a hoarder…you wont see that kind of realism in American soaps…UK soaps are the best…their plots are far more realisitic, entertaining, and still escapism from our everday life…character driven too!!!

    Torqumada replied

    Jimi, agree about Coronation Street. In particular the kid storylines, which I FF in American soaps, are incredibly well written.

    Coronation is very different in tone but really well done.

    Matilda replied

    I think it will be one of them, probably Madeline. She’s expendable and Donna Mills just may not want to keep coming back. If it is Ric and they kill another popular vet, people are really going to be pissed. At some point, TPTB just can’t be that tone deaf.

    The funny thing about this murder mystery is that it basically involves all new characetrs, actors, Cartini creations. Nina, Franco, Ava, Madeline, Kiki, Morgan.

    Nina, Ava, Madeline, Kiki; all new creations.
    Franco basically a new creation as he was recreated by RC and played by a new actor.
    Morgan, who’s been sorased and basically thrown in with this crew from the beginning.

    It just shows you how isolated this whole crew is and how they never really have been integrated onto the canvas.

    Torqumada replied

    Guiding Light typically got the murder storylines right while ABC has a terrible history on these .

    I hope it’s not MadMaddy. That scene with Maxie was the best. Imagine Tracy and Maddie going toe to toe! Sweet Jeebus that would be swell.

    There is an abundance of great talent on this show. I hope the new writers realize that and start writing to the level of this talent.

    Let’s wrap this up quickly and get on with advancing some plotlines and characters.

    In my opinion it would have been a real surprise if we hadn’t heard a few days earlier that ME was leaving. As for Nina, I agree that it’s too obvious for her to be the guilty party. I expect this will drag on forever just like all the other s/l’s. In the end we won’t care who did it.

    Obviously it will go on until November! That’s 3+ months of BS we’ll have to sit through!
    We know Ron C. started this storyline, but how will the new writers finish it? It’s entirely possible it will end much differently than originally planned…if it was actually PLANNED. Seems like so many stories have started out one way and then been changed mid-storyline. Michael Easton has already played three characters on GH. Who’s to say one of them won’t come back? And don’t even bring up the fact that they’re dead, LOL!

    If it is Donna Mills sorry could not think of her name they will save a lot of money on make up! If it is KiKi they will save a lot of money on acting lessons. If it is Denise we will save us all from insanity on the lousy wig and fake accent . But if Silas only has seven dollars in his pocket then we know it is Morgan isn’t that the actor who gets on Twitter to his fans for seven dollars. One thing is for sure ME won’t be giving any nasty interviews about his show and cast members and writers etc. the man is a very smart classy guy!

    Me, too, Terri. The scenes between Silas and Ava when she was dying in the hospital were incredible… I expected a romance between them, not for her to instantly hate him and for him to sneer at her. This seems like a rushed decision, a bad one. How hard is it to give a doctor a storyline? At General HOSPITAL. I know it was hard to create an instant character when McBain was no longer allowed contractually, but they threw him in scene after scene, and he handled it like a pro. Who is going to handle Danny’s medical care? Josslyn’s?

    This stinks.

    I love GH…Excellent point…how hard is it to give a doctor a storyline on General Hospital? Even Lucas and Patrick’s are a bit thin. And come to think of it, a lot of the action that takes place at GH isn’t very hospitally.

    I totally agree. Get rid of Ava first. Either give madelin something more interesting or buh bye. Can not stand Ric. He may be cute , but sleeping with madelyn and trying to make Nina go crazy, it’s disgusting. Morgan is worthless. Send him away. he can come back with a new personality and actor.

    Chrystie Delancey replied

    They will probably have to play a lot of this OFF screen which is really sloppy storytelling. My money is on Madeline.

    Ava can’t kill anymore people because she is already painted into that corner. Morgan doesn’t have the cojones to do it (nor should he).

    Fanny replied

    Talk about the Mothers from Hell!

    Rose replied

    Maybe eliminate by those who knew Nina was at the “place?” Ric, Silas, Madeline, Franco.

    My money’s on Madeline since I think it’s more of a female thing to stab in the back or poison someone.

    Morgan’s too much in your face and a bit of a screw up, even if he knew where Silas had gone. And Ric’s just too much of a screw up/wimp who doesn’t like to get his hands dirty.

    Or, maybe Heather Webber was lurking in the hallway and did it. We haven’t seen her for a while. She did sort of befriend Nina once in her own way, and has been known to use a knife.

    And I’ll pull a Jimh and say it was one last unseen, parting gift by Fluke/Luke.

  13. Glo says:

    I’m going with Madeline. She hated Silas from the beginning because he was not good enough for her Nina. She did everything in her power to destroy him, unsuccessfully. So she had to kill him before he ruined her plot to get Nina’s money. Plus, the actress is not a cast regular, so she’s expendable.

    Reply

    Rebecca1 replied

    I think Madeleine did it too…but I don’t think she hated Silas because he wasn’t good enough for Nina…a mother who puts her daughter into a coma then plots against her…by making her think she’s losing her mind…is not exactly what I’d call overprotective. Lol…

    I believe she didn’t want him to get any piece of Nina’s money…and whatever other secret Madeleine’s harboring about Nina’s childhood.

    Reply

    Fanny replied

    @Rebecca… Like perhaps KiKi is really Nina & Silas’s daughter?
    MadMaddie would have taken the newborn and given her to Ava,
    since she’d originally paid Ava to lure & seduce Silas away from
    Nina. She placed her daughter in a coma, giving away her grand-
    daughter would’ve been easy… MadMaddie couldn’t take the
    chance Kiki would inherit Nina’s millions….

    Rebecca1 replied

    Hi Fanny…I must say though much of GH is predictable, I’ve wavered on whether Kiki is Nina’s daughter. Might be because I think Ron may have wavered, too. It seemed like all indications were pointing in that direction…then I felt he changed course and went back to dropping hints that, “no fans, you figured out wrong! She really IS Ava’s.” Though, it might explain why she doesn’t feel too creepy about sleeping with her daughter’s boyfriend…but if that’s the case that would imply adoptive mothers don’t love their children as much…so…

    But, yes. He promised some “big secret” so let’s have it already! Lol…

    Haven’t yet watched the other True Blood-esque shows you recommended. I thought they ‘d be offered on Comcast On Demand but they were charging a lot for the seasons…

Oh, wait, what am I saying… killers never pay on GH, they just continue to roam around Port Charles… so ultimately, it doesn’t matter who killed Silas. Any stakes or jeopardy has been removed, and any compelling reason to actually watch has been diluted, because crimes never have consequences on this show…

    Yes, Maura West is a great actress. Loved her as Carly on ATWT, too. The problem is her character has done too many heinous things, all just to shock the viewers. I am no longer shocked. Just numb. Ava has been written into a corner and she is no longer redeemable in my eyes.

    I don’t care who did it. I only care about the fact that they killed off Silas and we have no more Michael Easton on the show… I don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes but I don’t care – I’m furious, disappointed, heartbroken. I won’t mention the fact that giving this actor such terrible last scenes is beyond disgusting to me.

    What a shame to have Silas killed. There is so much dead weight and far too many side story lines – GH has wondered off track. Love the Nina/Franco storyline (huge Roger Hoawarth fan) – those two could do some serious damage if the writers gave them a story line…the Rick/Madeline story line is totally disgusting -not a fan of Donna Mills – loose her. As for sending off Luke – couldn’t it have been done differently? How long before he wants to come back….probably as a loon…
    I can see why the ratings have dropped and glad RC is gone..who is next or …will the show get the ax?

    Wow, that sure was final. I thought they would use Silas being a doctor as a reason to send him out of town, say he was going to treat a patient or something. But to be honest, I didn’t have much use for the character. They did a poor job writing and developing it.

    I’m a fan of Michael Easton, but he was much better as John McBain. Maybe some day ABC and Prospect Park will settle their pissing contest, and Michael will be able to return as John McBain. I would love to see that.

    As far as who killed Silas, if RC was continuing as head writer, I would say that maybe we’ll find out by around October 2037. But with the new writers taking over soon, hopefully they will be much better about moving stories along.

    Love your “October 2037.” I agree Silas was not fleshed out as a character. I would have liked to see him tell Kiki- to see how he did it and how he helped her through it. The show needs more doctors.It’s General Hospital for heavens sake! \

    I think Nina’s mother Madeline did the deed to keep Silas from confessing to lil Avery’s kidnapping and ruining her plan to steal Nina’s inheritance.

    hi Alan.
    nawww Maddy is too prissy to get bloody by stabbing lol
    stabbing is not her style and she doesn’t have moxy to do it..

    what puzzles;
    Silas was stabbed in the back..
    He didn’t see it coming..
    A cowardly move = Rick..

    both Morgan and Nina were raged and that would be an eye to eye death , they didn’t do any backstabbing, nope..

    I hope it was ric and he is caught and connected. Cant’ stand him and him with Madeline is disgusting on so many levels.

    Give Mad Maddie a little more credit…she’s an ambitious killer just like Ava when need be…just with a more “class.”

    just thought of a twist—when Michael Easton first came to GH he had a twin brother who was killed (or so we thought – as we watched someone walk thru morgue/hospital doors) perhaps he was killed by his brother and we get to keep Michael Easton on the air…I would vote for this….Michael Easton is a wonderful actor who was under utilized on GH…bring him back and give him a storyline worth his talent!

    Such a shame and such a waste of unutilized potential. Silas Clay deserved a better fate than this and Michael Easton deserved better acting material than what he has suffered with for the last year. The amazing thing is that he was able to do so much with so little he was given… the death of what should feel like a recurring character is impacted by the likability and realness Mr. Easton brought to the role. He truly put his heart and soul into Silas Clay and never complained about his lack of story or air time. He will truly be missed on General Hospital.

    As for suspects, I’m all in on the killer being Madeline Reeves. She always hated Silas; it was even hinted at during the Nina/Ava/Maddie scenes where Ava was forced to give birth to Avery that Maddie and Ava had worked together and that Maddie had some secrets she was keeping from Nina (the true parentage of Kiki, maybe, and that Kiki’s mother was really Nina after all?). To kill the man that Nina once loved so deeply AND to frame Nina so she can collect Nina’s inheritance… just an all-around perfect plan and afterwards with Nina locked away well, Maddie won’t need Ric soon. He better watch out for a knife in his back.

    ok–
    second thought..

    Franco but a knife to Morgan, he likes knives lol ..
    he stabbed mommy dearest with a knife..
    thing wrong with Franco doing it-
    He would not stab Silas in the back..
    Franco is more personal than that, he would build up his own pleasurable drama before the kill..
    He would look Silas in eye, for sure..
    well, back to Ric as the cowardly backstabbing killer..

    Rebecca1 replied

    I don’t think it was Franco…unless they plan on wiping out the last of the OLTL 3. I also don’t think he’d risk being sent to jail or worse now that he has Nina back. My vote is Mad Momma Maddie!

  26. Andy G. says:

    My money’s on Madeline. She’s an unlikeable, minor character who no one would miss (as opposed to Morgan, Ava or Nina, who all have some degree of rooting value). I’m also willing to bet Donna Mills doesn’t work cheap, even on a recurring basis, so removing her character would make sense from a bottom line perspective as well.

    I think whomever it was, it was a WOMAN. I don’t think Silas would turn his back on Fracno. Maybe he was napping on the floor and Franco stabbed him? Ha! Ha! That is the only way I see THAT scenario played out.

    It was either Nina, Ava, or another woman – maybe even Madeline.

    Well, if Ric didn’t do it the Silas slipped and fell on the knife and then rolled over and died LOL ..]

    (it was Rick, yup.. money needs killing for)

    ohhh no!! maybe Heather escaped, again!! lol

    Chrystie Delancey replied

    I’ll let you hold onto your theory, su, but I think stabbing is a crime of passion which would make it be a woman. That is unless the writers are adding another angle to this story and Silas and Ric had something going on off screen. ;-)

    Rose replied

    If we’re looking for a twist with someone who has a history with knives, how about Heather Webber. Maybe this is where she was last “locked up”, and she was “fond” of Nina, in her own way, once.

    I am really sad that Michael Easton will no longer be on GH. I’m hoping it was Madeline that did the deed, because she is definitely an expendable character, more so in my opinion than the other suspects. I just don’t think that writing new stories for a cancer specialist in a hospital, on a show called General Hospital, should be so difficult! Michael Easton is an excellent actor and he did a lot of great work the last three years, even with the crap that Carlivati wrote for him. I think it would be great if the lawsuit between Prospect Park and ABC would be over and then maybe John McBain could return and work for the PCPD. They certainly could use a very smart detective on the force! Then maybe Franco could be gone and Todd and Starr Manning would be able to return!

    As I read through the comments, there are pros and cons for all that were mentioned and I really thought it would probably be Heather Weber since the writers always pile the bad stuff on her but then someone said Rosalie and I remembered reading on some spoilers that Rosalie was still on the scene. It could be her although I can’t imagine why. I do think whoever it was that killed Silas also killed AJ and the only one connected to both of them is Ava.

    Best possible outcome for this story would be the following……

    Nina, will of course be arrested because the was hovering over the body with a bloody knife in her hands. But there will be another set of prints on the knife, namely Frodd’s. Remember that he was in Silas’s apartment the previous day, making all sorts of ridiculous “threats” against Morgan, and handled many objects, including the knife. Out of his new found “love” for Nina, Frodd will “confess”.

    Now the key here is how much of this story was already written by ReRon before he was fired, and whether it will be dragged out (as his stories usually were) to the point where the new writers get to finish the story.

    So memo to Shelly & Jean: Let Frodd’s confession stand. Send him to Pentonville. Get this useless character off the screen. And leave Kiki gone too. Having all three of the OLTL characters (spare me the argument about the new names, we all know what happened) gone for good, is the first step in restoring General Hospital to the great show it stopped being in February 2012.

    I think I have a storyline that could work. Silas Clay is dead. Bring back John (ME) McBain to investigate the murder do to possible mob ties. Plus McBain could be tossed into the mix of Patrick/Sam/Jason-Jake/Elizabeth. Or TPTB could have McBain return to Port Charles with Anna Devane. It was announced that the character would be returning after Finola Hughes is done directing a movie. As for the killer, it’s gotta be Ava. Heather is insane, so that’s how she can keep popping up here and there. Sonny, much to my displeasure, was given a pardon, so I don’t see that being used to a save Ava. I would be really surprised if Morgan was Silas’ killer. I honestly believe that any of us here with the knowledge we have of GH, could fix these characters and save the show!

    Madeline has already killed a person and she is someone they won’t keep around so she is likely the one. One thing I know for sure is that it is not Morgan, Ava, or Nina.
    Why haven’t we seen more of the Brad and Lucas storyline? Is Brad really married? I thought his father was in the mob and he didn’t want his family to come to Port Charles but saying he is married is bad!
    Also, Nathan,Franco, and Nina keep asking Ric if he is the mother’s lawyer. Isn’t it an easy public record that could be looked up, especially by Nathan?

    If the new writers let Ron’s story play out, my money is on Deila/Roxy to avenge her daughters. It will be a total surprise, no major GH character will have to go and Deila did it to protect Ava. Also, Roxy did it to avenge Natalie. You can bet Ron will have Delia justify it with a general speech that applies to both Ava and Natalie just like when Kristen and Roger said goodbye.
