Ryan has been pretty clever up to this point on General Hospital. He was able to get close enough to Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) to trade places with him. And he convinced the allegedly professional staff at a mental hospital that Kevin is him.
Ryan has killed several women in Port Charles without the police being any wiser, and he was able to first stab Lulu (Emme Rylan), then get lucky that she doesn’t remember who did it. (Luck of the crazy?). Then, he hypnotized her into remembering Franco (Roger Howarth) as the culprit.
But is Ryan about to make a critical mistake? Will he kill while Franco is in jail and make it clear the cops have the wrong man?
Partners In Crime
The Port Charles police have proven themselves so ineffectual, 84% of you fear, even if Franco is in jail when the next woman is attacked, the cops will probably just assume that Franco has an accomplice, instead of turning their attention elsewhere.
Then, they’ll be looking at Franco’s known associates, and completely ignore his psychiatrist. Because shrinks can’t be crazy! Hey, after Jordan (Brianna Nicole Henry) let ‘Kevin’ hypnotize Lulu without a police monitor, who knows what she’ll let slide next?
Crazy As a Fox
A much smaller 16% of the audience, however, think that Ryan is smarter than that. After all the trouble that he went to in order to frame Franco, he wouldn’t be so stupid as to keep killing when Franco isn’t around to look shifty and suspicious.
This is a keen, analytical mind we’re dealing with here. Ryan hasn’t made a mistake up to this point, he won’t slip up now. He’ll watch and he’ll wait… and he’ll strike at the worst possible time…for Franco.
Stay tuned to see which faction is right!
