37 February 18th, 2014 This Week On GH: A Secret Kingpin! An Unsolved Murder! Two Mysteries Unravelled!

Courtesy/ABC

In the latest promo released by ABC on General Hospital, this week two mysteries reveal some new Intel, including that it looks like Julian Jerome (William deVry) is working for a secret mob kingpin!

Who could it be? Many fans are already suspecting it could be the Rivera family! Or, could it be another clan from Sonny’s (Maurice Benard) past who wants to bring him down?

Elsewhere, will AJ (Sean Kanan) finally get to the truth about the night of Connie’s (Kelly Sullivan) murder as he confronts Ava (Maura West)?  Is “Ava Jerome” who Connie wrote in her own blood … or …  do you think Connie’s murderer is neither AJ or Ava?

Watch this week’s GH promo after the jump!  Then, let us know who you think is the secret mob kingpin? And who ultimately murdered Connie?

    I don’t think it could be Rick, because where the fuck did Rick get millions of dollars to re-build a crime organization that’s pretty expensive he’s a lawyer and yes lawyers make alot, but not millions he’s not Bill Gates- creater of the internet. And maybe Rick is working with Julian and this mystery king pin.

    This isn’t about soaps, but in case you would like to know, Bill Gates didn’t create the internet. Bill Gates created the computer software that runs most computers– Windows– making computers accessible to everyday people like you and me, otherwise we would all need master degrees in computer science in order to get computers to do what we want them do. Windows, did all the for us, so all we had to do is point and click a mouse — so in a way the internet would not have taken off in the public arena without a computer software that made it easy for us to use computers, but Gates didn’t invent the internet. Actually the beginnings of the internet started in 1950′s way before his time.

    Ric makes sense because he and Sonny had an adversarial history growing up and he is slated to return this month anyway. I can’t think of anyone else at this point.

    I believe he is working for Ric Lansing who wants to bring Sonny down…and i dont believe it was either A.J. or Ava who killed Connie(maybe Kate did it…lol)…i still like Mary SFs idea it was Alice! Maybe Alice is part of the mob and also working for Ric?

    Who killed Connie? Am I suppose to still care. They dropped this story in favor for Robin’s return and now being in limbo for months they are finally getting back to it, they expect us to still be excited about it. Not this girl– I am sure whatever conclusion they came up with won’t nearly be as good as the story they could have written if they gave it their full attention back when it actually happened.

    I could care less about Julian and his secret boss. Has anyone forgotten J.J. helped J.J. get away. hmm (J.J, J.J A.J. and A.J.) I think the mysterious evil mastermind boss is tied up with the JJs and Cassadines ( I wish they’d leave those sleeping dogs lie already). Yeah cause Frank Smith would be well over 100 by now. The possiblilty of Rivera being the mystery boss, well… did I miss something about the question of is or isn’t Garrrlos Lily’s bro? Seems like that was dropped. At least if he were that would have at least tied certain things in and make it more plausible as to why Garrlos is working for JJ. maybe . BTW Julian is now en par with Sonny re the amount of illegitimate children he has. In Julian’s case however he is now a Godfather, Father, and grandfather, giving him one up on Sonny.
    I end with a question and comment: With all of the historically brilliant agents i.e. Anna and Robert or other very hip, PI’s i.e. Sam on the scene , dagnabbit even Felicia, why hasn’t it crossed anyone’s mind that the initials A.J. could stand for Ava Jerome. Even though all of us soap heads know that as a rule the local soap town PDs are reduced to a comedy of errors, I had higher expectations for the PC PD with Anna D at the helm. Now she has become so dumbed down-she who once was a Goddess-like force to be reckoned with is now but a mortal with seemingly less than average powers of deduction.( Heck, even a gnat could see AJ might = Ava Jerome) MaybeLucy should throw some cards – Olivia’s esp seems to have left her building ever since she’s become Sonny’s go to/be all you know what buddy.

    not too far-fetched Mika. You could be right. whoever it is, I believe we will find Jerry Jacks is also in the middle of all this.

    I think Ric Lansing is the secret kingpin and I honestly hope that niether AJ or Ava killed Connie.

    Maybe Donna Mills’ new character will be the matriarch Jerome and SHE is the head of the organization? As for Connie, I don’t believe A.J. murdered her… it’s likely Ava or someone else entirely.

    Hmm good hunch about Donna, Jimmy. I forgot about her coming on board. She could handle the role of Queen pin easily

    I have a feeling the secret kingpen is Donna Mills.

    Reply

    Jimmy replied

    I think this is the more likely scenario, at least logically it is. Where would Ric Lansing get all the money to fund the Jeromes from?

    I do hope, though, that they bring back Ted King as Lorenzo Alcazar and make him the kingpin, that would be awesome! I think Donna Mills would be better served as Nina Clay’s mother.

    Shay replied

    Why can’t she be both? The more I ponder this notion, it seems to make sense that Donna Mills is probably Nina’s mother, and the father would be……the late Trevor Lansing???? That would explain a lot, such as where the money trail bankrolling Julian emanated and also why Ric is suddenly returning to Port Charles. Just a thought….

    what ever happened it would be nice if the writers got on with it. There are too many storylines left open it’s getting annoying. I do like the ideal of a kingpin just hope it adds excitement and not another ignorant plot cause the heather, robin and baby thing is making the GH characters seem like a bunch of morons. LuLu and Dante used to be alot smarter.Anna’s a joke went from kicka- – agent to terrible cop. robin well its all been said. Anyway everytime they come up with a good storyline it fizzles out with a lot of drawn out stupidity. They need to pay attention to how the characters have always been and quit ruining them my 7yr old granddaughter even commented on it. wow not even smarter than a 1st grader!

    Not having a long history with GH, who else has the initials “AJ” from GH’s past? Could they have been both the “kingpin” and Connie’s murderer? IDK.

    I can’t watch GH with a straight face anymore. The writing is just so sub par. The characters are written as idiots. The Britt baby saga is ridiculous. Why would people believe that she only took Dante’s sperm? The remaining embryos went missing and were supposedly destroyed. Now Britt’s child shares Dante’s DNA.

    Wouldn’t anyone with a brain in their head, especially a detective, ask if she took the embryos? Wouldn’t they ask for a DNA test? Such poor writing that insults the viewers intelligence.

    yep GH50. I agree. it is my notion that RC & FV think since we aew GH fans we are stupid–that or they just DO.NOT.CARE. what we think or how we feel or if they are being true to the charecters. And as a side note I too am very sick of all of the story lines that are just left hanging.

    Ric Lansing. I mean, it makes complete sense since fans know Rick Hearst is on his way back.

    And Ava killed Connie. It was obvious from the beginning, but nonetheless enjoyable to watch. Maura West is pure gold on this show.

    Jimmy replied

    I agree about Maura West, she and William DeVry were the two best new additions to the show’s cast last year.

    As for the kingpin, I think the mystery person is actually a Queen-pin – whoever Donna Mills will play. I doubt it will be Ric because bankrolling the Jerome family is no light task – where did the money come from?

    However, if it were my decision, I would rehire Ted King and make Lorenzo Alcazar the kingpin and use Donna Mills as Nina Clay’s mother (Silas’ mother-in-law) and make her secretly a Cassadine – Mikkos’ sister or Helena’s sister.

    Finally, some resolution of the Connie murder. I hope it was not AJ Quartermaine, and I also hope that Sonny gets what’s coming to him for torturing AJ after Connie was murdered.

    I think the new Donna Mills character is going to be Julians sister Oliver who he lead us and Ava to believe he killed

    Shay replied

    Donna Mills’ character will probably be the ringleader, although whether she is actually Olivia Jerome remains to be seen.

    Johnny replied

    Donna Mills is about 20 years too old to play Olivia Jerome. She could play the Jerome mother. But it would not be Ava’s mother as that was recently revealed to be Delia. Seeing Ilene Kristen and Mills go toe to toe would be cool. But on the other hand…..there are countless characters I know and care about on this show that are never seen. Stunt casting and strangers are not what soaps need. They could have had nobody extras play the parts that Mrs. Partridge and Grey Lady played and saved themselves a whole lotta cash.

    Johnny it is my notion that all of these “stunt actors”, as you call them, are being brought on to distract us, the real fans, from our favorite charectors–you know, out of site out of mind—they must think we are all dunces.

    I can’t see Ric Lansing as the new big kingpin. Ric was never that smart. He was a follower, not a leader. Bankrolling the Jerome family is one thing, but the money has to have come from someplace else. That is not to say that Ric isn’t the FRONT for the money source.

    of course it is Ric Lansing–Sonny’s half brother…but where did the money come from ??

    I have not read any of the comments above… but will.

    I really hope the person behind Julian is Alexandria Quartermaine and that she is played by Donna Mills!!!

    I thought Donna was going to play Nina’s mother before… but am wishing she could be Alexandria and maybe she could be both!!!

    How very cool to have the person be a Quartermaine and a Cassidine (even if it is just by marriage)!!!

    heidi replied

    Agree with those that think Donna’s character will be the person behind Julian! Just wish and hope it is Alexandria Quartermaine as the possibilities are endless!!! Would be tied into so many on the canvas now!!!

    My first thought was Jerry Jax, since Julian’s company is being bank rolled by someone; and Jerry stole the $80+ million. But, Ric is coming back, and that will be a great segway for his return, and for him to go up against his brother, Sonny!

    That would be segue.
