Who Killed Connie Falconeri on General Hospital? (POLL)






Connie Falconeri (Kelly Sullivan) may have had two personalities, but neither one of them was smart enough to beef up security at the Metro Court! The General Hospital fruit loop pissed off a lot of people, by splashing news that Kiki Jerome (Kirsten Alderson) wasn't really a Quartermaine all over her newspaper's front page. The big question is, who was mad enough at the former Kate Howard to rub her out?

Sonny (Maurice Benard) was fairly peeved with his Bensonhurst broad for breaking her promise to keep the paternity of Morgan's (Bryan Craig) lady love a secret. However, since the Dimpled Don was the one who discovered Connie bleeding from her gut, that rules him out.

What about Morgan? Connie almost ruined his plan to marry the girl his big brother Michael (Chad Duell) is also jonesing for. Okay, he's probably a long shot, considering Kiki decided to go ahead and jump the broom with him.

The obvious suspect is A.J. Quartermaine (Sean Kanan). Not only did Connie's revelation cost him ELQ, but she also scrawled the letters "A J" in her own blood. Plus, Junior is back on the sauce again.

Alan Junior isn't the only name with the initials "A.J." in Port Chuck. What if Connie was trying to finger Ava Jerome (Maura West)? The mad, lady mobster, with a penchant for lying about birth certificates, already busted a cap in one Falconeri cousin. Why not make it two for two?

Ava's big brother, Julian (William deVry), has to be annoyed his pesky employee overheard him using his real name. Did "Derek Wells" do the dirty deed?

Dr. Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) may seemingly have no connection to the croaked Crimson queen, but whenever that woman is in town, the Grim Reaper isn't far behind. Then there's Monica (Leslie Charleson). I know, I know. The horny heart surgeon is a lover, not a murderess, but what if she decided to avenge her son?

Monica went to great lengths to fake A.J.'s death, hoping he'd one day get a chance to redeem his less-than-charmed life. Seeing him lose all of that could drive a mama to kill.

Who do you think killed Connie on GH?

My money is on Ava. It's not that I want her to be the killer but of all the people she's the only one who had a real motive. Plus, Connie writing "AJ" with her own blood works with Ava's initials.

AJ is the obvious suspect. But I don't believe for a second he did it. And lets be honest ... killing a woman for printing the truth!? Not to mention that before he had a drink with the lady who lied about Kiki's paternity. If someone should be guilty of anything in AJ's mind, it should be Ava.

Morgan does not have enough motive to kill Connie. It's a real long-shot. If Monica turns out to be the killer ... well that would be a character assassination. Dr. Monica Quartermaine could never kill someone over a stupid thing like this.

Julian has an alibi! He was at GH, finding out that he's a father. Couldn't have been back at the office in time. Not to mention that he still is in the hospital.

Obrecht? Now why would she want to kill Connie? She has no connection to her at all. No not working for me.

Sadly Ava is the only one who makes sense at the end of the day. And I say sadly because I wish there was someone else... I don't want the Ava character ruined because of such a - lets say it - stupid murder mystery.

After two months of trying to pin it on everyone else, it will wind up being AJ. Ava makes sense, but the story will be more exciting if the people like Monica, Michael, and Liz stand by him and believe him were in the end wrong.

Ava is the Jerome's hit man. They're gonna need her around if the Jeromes are going to take back Port Charles.

Ava would be way too obvious. I'm hoping we get an actual mystery storline out of this.

I think that "Kate" re-emerged and killed Connie. I think she framed AJ by writing his initials in blood, which is why she smiled when she did it.

Ava simply because AJ is the red herring he's way to obvious and because Connie had just recently found out that Derek is really Julian.

Or maybe she wasn't writing out her killers initials at all maybe AJ meant Ava, Julian warning Sonny that the Jerome family is back fully in town.

@ Bishbay a comma splice is when you use a comma to join two independent clauses or complete sentences. "Mad, lady mobster" is not two independent clauses. "Mad" and "lady" are both used as adjectives in this sentence.

I think AJ is too obvious. Maybe Big Alice? She seems pretty devoted to AJ. Maybe she was ticked off about Connie's article and paid her a little visit.

Okay, it's still incorrect. Those adjectives--and many adjectives you use in sentences--don't need to be separated by a comma.

I could see it probably being Ava Jerome but I am not sure. Maura West is doing such a great job it would be horrible to lose her. My money is still on someone else....Maybe it was Alice?

i think that both Ava and AJ are red herrings. these two are way too obvious. i think that in classic RC fashion there's a story that led to Connie's shooting that we have not even started to grasp yet. also in classic RC fashion - the journey to the truth will be a whopper!

Ava seems fairly obvious to me, though she has a history of trying to kill people who get in her way. However, I think if Ava shot Connie in such close quarters she probably would have stayed to make sure that Connie was dead before leaving her. Besides, Ava is a lot of fun, and having her kill Connie seems like a surefire way to write the character into a corner where her only options are jail or being killed by Sonny.

I'm going with Alice who killed her by accident while trying to stop Connie from going to the police over AJ threatening her with gun. Having Alice as the killer could provide more grist for the battle over ELQ.

This is not a grammar lesson it is just an article with mistakes. No one is perfect. Since we are on the subject, someome's name in the article needs to be corrected. Her name is Kristen Alderson not Kirsten Alderson.

I see it being ava. she still hasnt paid for her involvement in olivia getting shot. I think she is going to be the foil for many things and then ultimately she will try to kill sam and/or danny and julian will be forced to choose between his daughter and grandson and his sister. I see her being a device to make franco suffer (so we ultimately forgive him for his misdeeds) to make julian do something heroic which comes at great personal sacrifice thus making us love this character, and providing angst for slay, bringing sam and silas together. I wouldnt be surprised if they use her to thin out the cast a little. i dont see this character being long term.

That said, if they receive a ton of positive response to her in spite of whatever bad she does, it wouldnt surprise me to see them resurrect olivia jerome. the two sisters look enough alike that they will say connie thought she was seeing ava but instead saw olivia.

It could be Julian/Derek who did it. He could have hired someone to do it.

I could picture it now, the hitman or hitwoman walks into Connie/Kate's office and just points the gun at her and says "Julian says hello" and just pops her in the chest.

Just a thought

BTW, if this murder mystery means more Olivia screeching like she did yesterday (Aug 26), then I hope the writers wrap it up soon.

The only storyline I want to see Olivia in is one with her going up against Carly. I still think that whole Dante sending Michael to prison was unfinish storyline. Because Carly should have destroyed Dante rather than just try to break up his marriage with Lulu by using Brook lynne. It would have been epic. I think Lisa LoCicero can do dramatic stuff so much better rather than this psychic stuff they have her doing.

I'm all for a murder mystery but seriously there is zero reason for anyone other than AJ to kill her and that's solely because he is drunk and a lose canon. Sure Derek Julian may have wanted to do it but his has an alibi and since we don't see henchmen with him he is out.

Monica. Please. Not in a million years.

Ava. Too obvious and something tells me she is more manipulative then that especially since we have no idea why she lied abt paternity to begin with.

The reasonings for anyone to commit murder is extremely weak. Her DID should have returned and her being killed because she's a bitch would have been more believable.

No mystery.

Oh well. Months of a convoluted plot will ensue and in the end CONNIE did it.

Guaranteed.

i think it was Alice the dominator. trying to save AJ's butt. First it would blindside a few who never thought of this. Dont get me wrong. i love Alice. perhaps she could get Diane to represent her in court. I do miss Diane. when all looks lost, there could have been security footage showing that Connie actually had the gun on AJ while trying to call the police/Sonny. Alice stepped in to save her boss She struggles with Connie who still has the gun in her hands and it goes off. Only Connies fingerprints will be on the alleged murder weapon that Alice took to cover for her boss. just an idea.

My theory is that the initials AJ don't stand for the killer and it is a false lead. I think it stands for Ava and Julian, but not as killers. The information on the computer that Connie found and was trying to call Sonny about, is the cryptic AJ message. Because it is too obvious being AJ or Ava, it has either got to be a disposable character, which rules out Ava, or it was an accident...AJ tripped in a drunken stupor and the gun went off. Of course, it could be revealed that Connie shot herself in an opportune moment to gain Sonny's sympathy, but it backfired on her and she died. Or, there was a struggle. No one is mentioning the gun, so AJ dropped it and somebody else picked it up, but I just can't see it being Ava. All good dramas need a wicked lady and Ava is perfection in that way. Besides, she's got to mess up things for Silas and Sam in some evil way.

BTW--I'm new to the board. Hi Smile

Only thing with the theory of Connie doing it is that I didn't see a gun laying anywhere around in the office. So if she shot herself, I would think that the gun would had been found somewhere close to her body. Also, I would think that forensics and an autopsy would be able to prove that it was a self-inflicted wound pretty quickly.

I do believe as someone else stated that both AJ and Ava are red herrings. I think it will come from left field as to the identity of the real killer.

First, much respect to Kelly Sullivan for her portrayal of Kate/Connie during her tenure at GH. I don't know what GH is up to, but Robert better get out of that 'coma' soon Sick ...

Now the 'whodunits'; if Ava didn't do it, perhaps Franco since he's missing from the hospital (supposedly)....

Lastly off subject - will the 'bat-wing ring' Dr. Clay had return around Halloween so we can have the vampire angle Wink? Send the check my way please for more ideas GH...

there are only 2 people with the intials AJ ... and AJ Quartermain is way too easy a guess plus Ava Jerome (aka Olivia Jerome) egged him on AND she had far more to gain offing Connie ... Connie saw the computer screen with the info about Sonny's 'legit' business she was going to call Sonny when the drunk AJQ arrived .. i am betting he left, Ava arrived saw Connie about to call Sonny again and shot her ... interestingly she had to 'text' someone before she left Q mansion (where Michael was trying to sober up AJQ who was passed out on the couch) to meet "Derek" at the hospital .. she's the far more lethal Jerome here .. she's already tried to kill Franco to get what she wants ... love that she is such a good actress and able to play this nasty bitch so well .. go Maura!

If AJ killed Connie and didn't remember, all the police would have to do check his hands for gunshot residue. I don't think they would find any because I don't think AJ actually did it. Now Ava, that's another story. She's a ruthless, cold-blooded beatch who would do anything to protect her secrets. Remember how she went after Silas at the hospital with scissors after he told her he wouldn't stop until he got the truth about Kiki? Too bad Ava is her own worst enemy. If you don't ever want anyone to know who the real biological father of your daughter is, you don't list his name on her birth certificate. And if you don't want anyone to suspect your part of a former crime family, you might want to go by a different last name. And finally, if you don't want anyone to know that the guy everyone knows as Derek Wells is actually your supposedly dead brother, Julian Jerome, you don't put him in the contacts on your cell phone as Julian Jerome!!! Oh, and did I mention, if you shoot someone to shut them up because they found out that your dead brother wasn't actually dead, shouldn't you check to make sure that person is actually dead before you leave them lying in their own blood on the floor of your dead brother's office. Yeah, Ava did it!!!!

I don't think Connie was writing "AJ", I think she was trying to write "a J", as in, a Jerome. Remember that Connie found out Derek's real name that same night, but never had a chance to tell anyone...

I agree. It was likely Ava. I knew it wasn't AJ. My AJ(yes I said MY AJ) sorry I love AJ can't help it. But I know he's not capable of it. Sure he shot alan sr. and did other unspeakable things, but Killing Kate/connie over losing ELQ is a little much,even for AJ.

however ofcourse Prince Nicky has to be there to comfort liz in her 'time' of need *gag me* can someone please toss him off the roof of the hospital? sorry I'm babbling again. lol But yes...AJ innocent. It was either AVA, Julian or hey Ava and Julian together. lol

I'm gunna stop now before I wax poetic about my perfect handsome AJ.
