General Hospital took a big step when it chose to tackle the #MeToo movement with a young medical student who was already an established character.
However, even we at Soap Hub were a bit appalled when soon after Dr. Bensch was harassing and leering at Kiki, making her feel like an object, she fell into bed with her mother’s boyfriend for a one-night stand.
This clearly makes her case against Bensch harder to prove, but she also refuses to tell anyone what happened despite Griffin wanting to come clean.
We realize now that GH might have been trying to tell us just because Kiki was horrified by Bensch’s advances, she is still a woman with sexual desires–but SHE gets to choose who she is with, not a man with professional authority over her.
On Monday, Kiki saw her young career start to unravel with the end of the shadowing program, and she also found Bensch lurking around every corner ready to make her life at the hospital a living hell.
Griffin is right there by Kiki’s side, but Bensch knows that only benefits him in the end. See for yourself in the spotlight clip above.
