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?
