When General Hospital fans first met Liesl Obrecht, she was a sour-faced hench-woman obsessed with a villainous boss and happy to lock up Robin and throw away the key. She didn’t even have a first name!
As the years went on, however, we learned that the status of her relationship with Faison (Anders Hove) went far beyond a Facebook “it’s complicated.” She worshiped him. He treated her like dirt and obsessed over Anna (Finola Hughes).
She gave him a daughter, Britt (Kelly Thibaud). He longed for a son. She gave him a son, Nathan (Ryan Paevey)… and handed him over to her sister, Madeline (Donna Mills) to raise. Because… reasons.
Liesl (Kathleen Gati) lost Faison. She lost Nathan. Britt is goodness knows where. Is it time for this bad girl to find love? Over 5,000 viewers considered the possibility:
Time For Love
Liesl has mellowed, 73% of you assert, and she deserves the same chance at love as all of Port Charles’ other reformed bad boys and girls.
If Franco (Roger Howarth) the serial killer can get Liz (Rebecca Herbst), and Jason (Steve Burton) the hitman can have Sam (Kelly Monaco), and Sonny (Maurice Benard) gets…everyone, then why not throw a few crumbs Liesl’s way? We know she can sing. And she’s done enough singing the blues.
She is an evil woman, 27% of the audience detracts, and evil women do not deserve the same kind of happiness as evil men. Evil men are just poor, sad, little boys who need someone to understand them and make them feel secure, so they cut down a bit on their evil doing.
Evil women must be wiped from the face of the Earth or, at the very least, deprived of their children. Like Obrecht. And Ava (Maura West). Let them suffer forever for what they’ve done! General Hospital (GH) airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
