How on earth will the GH writing team explain how the treacherous Dr. Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati), a renowed criminal, who in fact kept Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake (Kimberly McCullough) captive for two years and tortured the poor woman has been named the Chief of Staff at General Hospital?
On yesterday’s episode, as Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Robin, Silas (Michael Easton), Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) and Monica (Leslie Charleson) all were present to hear the hospital board’s decision, one by one each was told they were not given the post.
Since everyone was told they did not get the job, Britt was the last one who hadn’t been told she did not get it, either. So, as she started to get excited that the board chose her in walked her mother, Liesl Obrecht, who announced to the doctors and her daughter, that she was the new Chief of Staff!
OK, so what is going on here? Is this Liesl a doppelganger? Did Liesl threaten the hospital with some kind of lawsuit or give them a big wad of cash to get the job? Or, will we find out in upcoming episodes that she really isn’t the Chief of Staff? Or, if she is the Chief of Staff it would certainly up open lots of drama for the resident doctors!
So the question we posed to you is, what did you think when Liesl announced she was the new Chief of Staff? What do you want to happen next? Comment below!
