After several patients, and Dr. Mayes, have met their maker thanks to the mysterious Derisifol serial killer, General Hospital is set to reveal the identity of who is behind the killing spree this week on the ABC daytime drama series.
Fans of the soap have been having their own ideas of who it could be and a sampling of those has lead to these potential culprits 1) Nurse Amy Driscoll (Risa Dorken) – Could this busybody nurse have some deep hidden nursing vendetta? 2) Dr. Andre Maddox – While he seems cool and collected, perhaps this therapist feels he is saving dying patients from suffering by “mercy killings”, and Dr. Mays got in the way? 3) Dr. Liesl Obrecht - Has Liesl gone off the deep end after losing the Chief of Staff position to Monica Quartermaine? 4) None of the above – perhaps everyone is off the beaten track and GH will serve up a shocking surprise!
In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on sale now, GH co-head writer Jean Passanante offered up this tease as to the identify of the kiler: “We went through a few different scenarios. We came up with the one that gives us the most impact.”
Jean added: “We wanted it to be someone who matters to the canvas in a bigger way rather than somebody we brought on for that exact reason, someone who story has ramifications for other stories, as well, and we realized that we did have the character in place whose motivations make sense.”
Passanante was quick to point out that the motivation will remain unknown to the audience for the time being. She also related that once GH viewers know the identify of the killer, they are going to worry about who could be the next victim when the “said” character is in proximity with another one.
