We finally find out that it’s Dr. Monica Quartermaine (Leslie Charleson) who drove drunk, ran down Sam McCall and left her for dead on General Hospital.
In the beginning, Carly, Nikolas, Elizabeth and Monica were all suspects.
But as the weeks wore on, it came down to the final two – Elizabeth and Monica.
And just as Elizabeth is getting ready to go to the police station and confess, Spinelli gets the goods on Monica and tells Jason it’s his mother.
You see, Elizabeth was so tired on the night in question that she fell asleep at the wheel and hit something, but just didn’t know what and she doesn’t remember hitting Sam.
I know it’s easy for me to say this now…but I always figured it was Monica.
Elizabeth would have been too obvious – because of the animosity between her and Sam.
But with Monica…how else was her drinking problem going to come to the forefront?
Just before Jason got the confirmation, Lucky had figured out that Monica had a problem.
In fact, Lucky approached Monica outside General Hospital and tells her she needs to get help.
But Monica thinks Lucky is blackmailing her at the behest of Tracy and Luke!
Alice drives Monica home from the hospital and asks her if she wants some tea.
When Alice leaves the room, Monica pours herself a drink.
Just as she’s taking her first swig, Jason walks through the door and says, “You’re the one who hit Sam.”
According to a letter by Leslie Charleson posted on her official site, there are good things in store acting-wise for Leslie, but not for Monica.
So I ask…
What’s going to happen next?
Will Monica confess to hitting Sam?
Will Monica go into rehab – or to jail?
