‘General Hospital’ (GH) spoilers indicate that Nina Reeves‘ Auntie Liesl is okay after her little dip in the harbor, but the fact of the matter is, she was definitely pushed. The only question is, who dunnit? There are several people aboard the Haunted Star that would have wanted to see Liesl shut her mouth after blabbing about Baby Wiley Cooper-Jones’ real Dad, who who has the biggest dog in the fight?
‘General Hospital’ : Popular Theory: Brad Cooper
Brad has the biggest reason to want to see Liesl overboard. Her blabbing about who Wiley’s Father is could potentially cost him his family, if not his very life. The GH audience knows that Baby Wiley Cooper-Jones is not actually Baby Wiley Cooper-Jones, he’s actually Michael Corinthos’s baby, but in the land of Port Charles, only a select few people know this. Julian Jerome, Nelle Benson, and Liesl Olbrecht, Brad Cooper and Lucas Jones. Brad is the popular choice here because loose lips on ships could sink families in his case. If she was opening her mouth to the wrong person about Wiley’s parentage, then Brad would have a definite reason to push her into the water. However, when told of the news that Liesl went overboard, Brad acted completely clueless. Brad’s a pretty good secret keeper, but I don’t think he’s all that great of a liar. I don’t think he could look that clueless about the deal if he had actually pushed Liesl overboard.
‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: The Mama Bear: Bobbie Spencer
There’s no real proof to this one, but it’s an intriguing theory, nonetheless. Finn’s wasn’t the only cryptic utterance on the Haunted Star. When Bobbie and Scott were talking later, they had a bit of a disturbing conversation in which Bobbie had basically told him that a certain matter had been taken care of. What could that matter have been? And does Bobbie have a dog in this fight? Yes, and a rather big one too. She is Lucas Jones’ adoptive Mom. So that means, that the Mama Bear is going to come out if someone threatens her son’s interest. What’s her son’s interests right now? Wiley Cooper-Jones, her grandson. If she heard Liesl talking to people about things that she shouldn’t be opening her mouth about, she would, of course, have reason to push her overboard. If there was any witnesses, Bobbie also has the perfect alibi, because she has been passing out lately and if she felt faint and stumbled then she could have easily just slipped and pushed Liesl into the water. “Is that who that was? I’m sorry, I wasn’t feeling well, I didn’t see them.” Bobbie could say, and totally get away with it.
‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: The Papa Wolf; Julian Jerome
Julian Jerome is Lucas Jones’ biological Dad and is a former mobster. As part of little Wiley’s “army” he arguably has the biggest dog in the fight outside of Brad or Lucas. He has enough questionable morals and stealth to accomplish this task and not be seen or heard by anyone. No doubt if he overheard Liesl’s conversation then he would take it upon himself to shut things down, possibly permanently. He has also said that he would protect Wiley Cooper-Jones and has told Brad that he would keep his secret no matter what, but did that include any cost? Including potentially the life of Dr. Liesl Olbrecht? It just might!
‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: The Wildcard: Dr. Hamilton Finn
When he was talking to Elizabeth on deck, she happened to mention that Liesl had fallen overboard and he uttered a cryptic, “Wouldn’t you like to know?” (I’m paraphrasing.) It just seemed odd and kind of makes one wonder, did Finn push Liesl? And does he really have a dog in the fight? Only a small one. His brother is Detective Harrison Chase who is in a relationship with Willow Tait, so of course he would look out for his brother’s interests. But would he go so far as to push someone overboard for them? Well, let’s look at evidence, he was the one that injected something into Ryan Chamberlain’s blood that made him have a seizure, so if something were bugging him enough? Possibly. He had a much lesser claim in that fight than he does in this one though, he didn’t directly lose anyone to Ryan Chamberlain.
‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: The Newcomer- Hayden Barnes
Okay maybe she’s not quite a newcomer to the Port Charles-scape, but she did just blow into town for Elizabeth and Franco’s wedding. Let’s say that this whole “being shoved” thing was an accident. Let’s say that Hayden slipped on the deck and accidentally pushed Liesl into the harbor. That could have very well happened if she were rushing to see Elizabeth on her big day. It also could have been a coincidence that she did it just as Liesl was mentioning the stuff about Wiley Cooper-Jones true parentage. This is highly unlikely.
And finally, an honorable mention:
‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: The Ghost of Kiki Jerome
Kiki was present on board the Haunted Star, having apparently been contacted by psychic Sibley Gamble. She didn’t seem to stay long though! Maybe she was ticked off at her Mom and just wanted to be left alone, so she stormed off, Moaning Myrtle style and on her way back to the other side Liesl Olbrecht got in her way, so instead of making herself visible and asking politely she decided to yeet the good doctor into the harbor.
Okay that last one is just for fun. Who really pushed Liesl? We’ll have to stay tuned!!!
