90 August 28th, 2016 Who Will Be Revealed As GH’s Hospital Killer?

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.

So, who are you betting on to be revealed as the hospital killer, and then what do you think their motivation fo the killings are? Share your theories in the comment section below!

    This is the weak point of the show right now, let it be Andre and wrap it up already.

    If only. This was the worst twist I have seen since Jelly replaced RC.
    Just – L A M E. Makes no sense at all. I swear, someone somewhere has simply programmed a computer to develop the various plot lines. Cheaper than hiring writers.

    Judging from Passanante’s remarks, it sure sounds as though Obrecht is the killer. At least there is some action at the hospital… :) :) :)

    Dr. O is way to obvious and it wouldn’t be a shocker reveal in the least.

    Right on, Lou. Just finished watching today’s epidode….finally!!!
    Now, we are to think it’s Paul? Why? Doesn’t make any sense. Amy is just there gor good measure.
    But, Andre, who has no feelings for Jordan whatsoever ( he had a thing for Anna), looks more and more like the culprit. I think the only reason he’s ‘in’ with the Commish is to glean first hand knowledge of what’s what.
    Will Hayden get blamed for Lizzie’s tumble down that dark abyss called stairs? Were they stairs?Did anyone see them arguing?

    Hey, James,
    This is a hard one. Mike has a point….I do not like stiff-as-a-board Andre. By the same token, I love Liesl…..constant anger, disdain, lunacy and all. LOL.
    Needless to say, TPTB are toying with our senses….brain teasers, they are. LOL….And, here we are, speculating.
    Personally, I hope it’s Amy. If we think about it, what is her purpose? I don’t think it’s a coincidence she appeared when she did.
    However, Amy may have been placed right where she is in order to distract us from the real killer. Later, James.

    Remember, you and I already surmised Roxie is really Finn’s wife. So, your theory makes more sense to me than what’s fed us, so far.
    Please don’t stop entertaining us!!!!!

    Celia replied

    @Michael ( not Fairman).
    Exactly. The same could be said about the Fluke storyline….it was such a debacle; such a convoluted plot that I said, at the time, the story evolved as they went along. Not a good thing, as far as I’m concerned. The end result looked like a patchy quilt.
    No rhyme or reason. I hope the quilt keeps Luke warm, at least.

  3. Kittyninja says:

    Then how can anyone explain why they were going to inject Bobby , and instead injected Lucas ?

    lou piikes replied

    Lucas injected himself. He’s tired of being thrown back into the closet and being the token gay character on canvas. He’ll be the first gay serial killer. And his motivation for the murders is attention and recognition.

    Right?! Useless character and no investment in who it is, because no one we care about or even know for that matter was a victim. Bobbie and Lucas are rarely on so that doesn’t make any impact either.

    lol Jim!

    CLH – agreed. Not one major character has been killed … they may as well have killed Lucas since we haven’t seen him since forever!

  6. Alan says:

    The writers came up with a killer who gave them “the most impact”? Um, they would actually have to tell a story for there to be an impact: this has been nothing more than contract players talking about never before seen people dying off camera and Valerie walking her beat around the hospital. Yet another fail for this writing team.

    I’m guessing their idea of an “impact” will be making the barely developed character of Andre the killer because he had a crush on Anna (who’s currently off-camera, this show’s favorite place to tell story these days) and is in a (mostly off-camera) relationship with Jordan.

    Reply

    Iakovos replied

    I agree with you, Alan. This story has had no suspense for me. Such tales do when key characters are taken from us, with those deaths exposing new secrets and motives. (And no resurrections months later, please!) This could have been a good opportunity to clean house (as morbid as that sounds) as there are too many characters and stories for strong engagement.

    I remember the Mombassa (?) Fever story line of the late 1970s/early 1980s. It was scary. And the revelation a young boy everyone loved was the carrier was stunning.

    Lassa Fever–which is a real disease.

    Oh for the days of Douglas Marland! (Oh, hell—Oh for the days of any headwriter of even marginal competence.)

    “We went through a few different scenarios. We came up with the one that gives us the most impact.” For those of you who don’t speak the language, this is Passanante-speak for “We created the story without the slightest idea who might be the killer, and we’re still making it up as we go along. If we’re lucky, it will have an impact anyway.”

    Elizabeth replied

    Only if the impact they were seeking was complete revulsion of the audience at the stupidity and complete lack of logic in the twist. Just B A D. Ugh!

    Caitie replied

    But that theory is not supported by how very hard Valerie worked to keep her mother alive right up to the moment Patricia died. The reason she was so upset that her mother had left her convalescent home was that she was worried that doing so would weaken her mother and shorten her life. Valerie was trying to prolong her mother’s life – wanting to cherish every moment she had with her – not end it. And her grief-sticken anger against Luke was because she felt Luke’s actions had ended her mother’s life prematurely.

    Hey, Vicki.
    Maybe it is Paul, maybe not. I don’t think TPTB would flash previews of the killer, though. It could be anybody. The cufflinks may be a completely different case….not related to the killings.
    I guess, I just want it to be Andre. He’s bipolar to me. Imagine, “the bipolar Psychiatrist”. Sweet irony!!
    Andre is hot and cold. I think today was the only time I saw him as human; with humanly mundane characteristics; such as smiling. He’s usually such a serious sourpuss.
    Maybe it will be someone we least expected…..someone mentioned Monica?

  12. Jimmy says:

    I don’t think it’s Amy or Obrecht. Amy is disliked by pretty much the entire fan base, and it would be nice if she were the next victim. As for Leisl, I think it’d be way too obvious for her to be the killer, and after trying to morph her into a more palatable and “likable” (I use that term very loosely) character, to undo it all now would be pointless.

    I still think the killer is Andre. He’s relatively new to town, we don’t know much about his past, he’s inserted himself into the investigation and has plenty of opportunity. I’m not a fan of this character, and would much rather see both Jordan and Anna with someone else. This would be a good way to take him off the show.

    However, I’m slowly starting to think it’s Griffin. Based on what Jean said about the reveal of the killer having a ripple effect in other stories, Griffin seems the most logical because he is connected to another story right now too, whereas Amy, Obrecht and Andre are not.

    Plus, we know he’s abandoned his priesthood before, so now he may have turned to the dark side permanently. His goal, to take patients out of their misery, might stem from his own desire to have died when he was shot because he betrayed his faith and let himself down by his choices. An internal struggle with external consequences.

    I hope it’s Nina. I do not like the character and I really don’t like Michelle Stafford. She can not act and when she tries to, she interrupts the other actors lines…she’s a screen hog. I hope it’s her just to get rid of her.

    One of the sticking points in this story is working around the night Lucas was attacked. Amy, Andre and others (including Valerie – mentioned above by someone) were all at the Nurses Ball when Lucas was being attacked. Dr. O was NOT! In fact she was seen at the hospital in that time frame – very upset about the way she had been treated at the Ball.

    Depending on their choice as killer, I’m curious to see how the writers work around the guests at the Ball.

    As well, I doubt it’s Amy. She simply isn’t important enough to have the effect on the canvas the writers are indicating.

    Contrary to some opinions, I’m looking forward to this story this week. And I think that knowing who the killer is can add needed interest and tension to the story as we consider motives and as we watch the killer near other characters.

    I don’t know…if it’s a character I like then it won’t be that thrilling since we’ll obviously lose the character. It would be insane to ruin a legacy character’s reputation, like some feel was done to Luke. So, hopefully it’s not Monica.

    I would think it was Amy because she’s non essential and it wouldn’t be a loss. They tried to duplicate the vibe of Any Vining…didn’t come close. I’d root for it to be her…but the writers just said someone Who matters to the canvas.

    I vp don’t know…interesting impossible-but-it’s-a-soap twist? A Cassadine? Kevin Collins believe dead twin? Caleb…who arose from the dead in the hospital who we never saw again? (To be confused with Dr. Finn?)

    I never thought of that as a possibility, but what an interesting one it was! That would be quite the story twist, and it would bring to light what happened to him on the island – a plot point that has seemingly been dropped in recent weeks. Excellent theory!

    Well, I agree with many of you, but how about an Agatha Christie, Orient Express twist, as in “they ALL did it!” It could have been a joint venture between Jordan, Andre, Aaron, T. J., Kristina, Parker, Parker’s wife (if she exists), Nurse Amy, and Claudette. And maybe we should toss in Nathan if he continues to be shown as such a violent bully. Then we can be rid of the whole bunch at once!

    Quite honestly, if it meant getting rid of half the cast, I wouldn’t complain at all. Each character you mentioned is non-essential to the show and I would not mind if every one of them was booted. Throw in Griffin, Hayden, Valerie, Sabrina and Joe too.

    Marie replied

    Maybe Paul isn’t acting alone. Maybe Andre IS somewhat in on the job along with Paul. It might explain why they kept showing Dr. Finn witnessing their conversations today. Andre possibly mad at WSB for something. Maybe Paul is rogue WSB or Interpol or something. Maybe Paul and Andre are one of Robert’s other storylines. Maybe he is looking into them based on feedback he had received from Anna. They were kind of showing Paul’s temper recently whenever his other children were mentioned. I have no idea how all of this ties in.

    Not been watching the show for weeks now and only catching up via blogs, here and DC site on what’s been happening.

    My guess is Franco. Where can they possibly go with this character as he has no connections to anyone and his evil is better when used. Sure, he’s Jason’s brother (did they disconnect them in my absence?) but ever since he calmed down and was mad sort of sane the character is duller than one of the corpses on the show. He would have repercussions everywhere if it’s revealed to be him. Jason, Liz, Carly, Nina, lisel, and even Jake. Franco being the killer would a) bring back the fire to the character that fans don’t really care for b) give the actor the meat he has so proven he can chew as Todd on OLTL c) potentially give the program the sinister aspect it lost when the Casadines turned cartoony and James Franco last played the character.

    Motivation? It’s simple. Jason. Just like the last time all of Franco’s motivations come down to him. Franco has been without true attention for too long. Been rejected left right and center and not been shown the “attention” he believes he deserves. Plus it would give Jason more to do as well trying to protect all the towns womwhen.

    It’s FRANCO

    I just watched all of last week’s episodes. I am hoping that the hospital killer goes after Amy next. Having Amy be the killer is not all that thrilling, since many of us are not invested in the character. Actually, most of us are not investing in this storyline since we were never really introduced to any of the murder victims. Andre is becoming too obvious. I very much doubt it is Paul. I hope it is not Dr. O-LOVE HER!
    Bottom line, I can’t think of any storyline that I am invested in, right now. Joss’ donor storyline is boring. Sam and Jason are a total snooze fest. Morgan and Kiki are two village idiots. Could care less for Hayden. Has anyone thought that perhaps Nik is not dead-considering he faked his own death a few months ago and everyone in Port Charles returns from the dead? Lulu, please put a sock in it. The recast is just not working. Kristina, like her idiot brother Morgan, needs reform school-so disrespectful. I do like Alexis and Julian, however.
