So I pretty much crashed and burned Big Time with my guess about General Hospital’s Text-Message Killer.
Yeah, I thought it was either Daniel the bus boy or Dr. Ian Devlin (Seamus Dever).
WRONG!
Instead, we have Diego Alcazar miraculously returning from the dead.

I know. I know. It’s a soap. Expect that no one is ever really dead.
But in doing some serious intel – it has come to my attention from two independent sources that maybe I wasn’t so offbase about Dr. Devlin having a dark side.
I ran into Catherine in Publix Wednesday. Catherine is a long-time ABC soap fan and is big into GH.
Haven’t seen her for awhile, but we start chatting about the TMK reveal and my pick about Dr. Devlin.
Then Catherine says that she thinks Dr. Devlin is really the guy with the tattoo who is talking by phone to Jerry Jax, while Jerry’s pretending to be Mr. Moreau.
Jerry – as Moreau – is trying to get Lorenzo Alcazar’s docks for this as yet unnamed, unseen mystery man with a tattoo on his shoulder.
Catherine lays this theory on me…..and I’m thinking she might have something there.
The next day, I see my nail tech, Angela….also a long-time ABC soap fan.
I’m telling her how I bungled the TMK killer’s identity.
Before I even got to Catherine’s theory, Angela immediately blurted out that she thinks Devlin is the guy with the tattoo.
“It’s the voice,” Angela says. “It’s the same.”
Whoa!
Two separate sources, independent of each other, predicting the same thing.
There could be something to this theory.
I just hope it doesn’t take another five months – like the TMK’s identity – to be revealed.
Anyone else out there think they may be onto something?

From the “Out of Left Field Department” – Diego Alcazar as the Text-Message Killer.
No sooner do I go out on limb and predict who lurks behind the black ski mask as the Text-Message Killer and – BINGO – the TMK is finally revealed on General Hospital.
Surprise!
It’s Diego!
DIEGO???

Diego (Ignacio Serricchio) who was shot to death in front of our eyes by Sam…..oh kaaaaay…..
I must admit – I was totally and completely taken aback.
In fact, when he pulled off his ski mask in the BIG REVEAL – I began screaming at the T.V.
Let me say, I had absolutely NO IDEA that A. the TMK would be revealed on Friday and B. it would be Diego. Although apparently there were some spoilers to that effect floating around in cyberspace. I never saw them.
There were some subtle hints – like the fact that Kristina was rendered uncommunicative when she looked outside and saw someone lurking.
The only other time she was in that state, was after she witnessed Diego being shot by her half-sister, Sam McCall.
Here’s what I just don’t get – the TMK killed wise, wonderful Georgie. Georgie was the only one in Port Charles who liked Diego and was nice to him even after he went to prison.
How are they going to explain that one?
I must say, I’m really disappointed.
Suspending reality is a given in soap watching.
But this goes wa-a-a-y beyond that realm.
If it was Diego’s father, Lorenzo Alcazar, who returned as the TMK, I could have accepted that. He was killed off-camera and a body was never found. But Diego was shot to death on screen and there was a whole mourning scene by Ted King as Lorenzo, followed by a dark period for Lorenzo’s character.
So, Diego is alive – How?
I don’t know how they’re going to explain it, but I’m tuning in today to see what happens.
