The new week is set to kick off with all new episodes of General Hospital, and viewers are left pondering, yet again, just what is Dr. Hamilton Finn (Michael Easton) shooting up?
On last Friday’s episode, Finn’s behavior was quite unusual when he screamed at Tracy (Jane Elliot) to wake up from her urgery that removed the larvae cyst and the infection form her brain.
The surgery was performed by Dr. Munro (Matt Cohen) with an assist from Finn. When Tracy finally awakes, Finn is for the moment happy, and so too is Tracy who thanks Finn and touches his face. However, as Finn heads to the elevators at GH, Griffin notices that Finn doesn’t seem to be looking well, and notes to Finn he should get some sleep. He has been up for the last 24 hours. When Finn heads to the doctor’s locker room, he starts to seemingly go into withdrawal looking at himself in the mirror, looking at the bruises and track marks on his arm, and needing a fix of whatever he has been shooting up. Finn has his paraphenilia in his locker, but as he finally gets to it he is interuppted by Griffin, who notes how off Finn seems to be, but blows it off to a long complicated surgery over Tracy’s case. Later, a desperate Finn is sitting in the shower shooting up the drug.
Elsewhere in a touching moment, Tracy tells Monica (Leslie Charleson) she loves her and regrets not saying it before she went into surgery. Nina (Michelle Stafford) gets upsetting news from Dr. Lee after she has sex with Franco (Roger Howarth) in hopes to become pregnant. With Franco not wanting any biological children, and Nina’s baby obsession, the cracks are there for this relationship to tank! Meanwhile, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Anna (Finola Hughes) set things in motion to nab Carlos (Jeffrey Vincent Parise): Anna chlorforms Paul (Richard Burgi), Sonny tells Michael (Chad Duell) to look after the family, while Carly (Laura Wright) worries Sonny could end up shot again if he finds Carlos.
So, while Finn’s behavior is starting to emulate someone on heroin, doesn’t that seem too obvious? Is he taking an experimental drug for research? Is something medically wrong with him? Share your theories in the comment section below!
