“General Hospital” (GH) spoilers reveal that there may be less lives lost in Port Charles if Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) has her way and convinces Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) to ease up on the guns. But Sonny isn’t the only killer in town… Here’s a look at Port Charles top 10 killers.
To be clear, these are current characters that are killers. We put together a rough body count for each –this is NOT an exhaustive kill list – just a roster of some of the greatest homicidal hits – but feel free to share any notable kills you recall in the comments below!
#1 Jason Morgan (Billy Miller)
Jason of old – Stone Cold – killed countless people as a mob hitman. And even since Jason came back as Jake Doe and was determined to avoid violence, he’s killed handfuls of men. We don’t know Jason’s exact body count, but since he worked for Sonny as an enforcer for close to 20 years, it’s a lot!
#2 Franco (Roger Howarth)
Franco is another we don’t have an accurate count for, but we assume it’s plenty. He killed a number of people as a serial killer and worse than just killing them, he apparently reveled in the violence. Franco is now a new man, though, thanks to his tumor removal and may be homicide-free.
#3 Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard)
Sonny has at least six confirmed kills including AJ Quartermaine, has attempted many other murders, and hired out lots more. In fact, Sonny’s responsible for most of Jason’s kills, but since he didn’t personally carry them out, he’s lower on the list than his mob enforcer.
#4 Carlos Rivera (Jeffrey Vincent Parise)
Carlos is clearly a bad dude but we don’t know a lot of his homicidal history. We know he took out Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan) and some other Corinthos guys and we have to assume he did some other dirty work for Ava and Julian over the years, so we assume he’s got double digit kills…
#5 Julian Jerome (William deVry)
Julian is a mob boss so he doesn’t always do his own dirty work, but we know he killed his sister Olivia Jerome, Jonathan Paget, and henchman Vince. Plus, Julian has ordered the deaths of others, most notably Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan).
#6 Laura Spencer (Genie Francis)
You may be stunned to see Laura ranking so high on this list, but she’s got three confirmed kills by name – the same as Julian. She accidentally offed David Hamilton when she was just a lovelorn teen as well as Theresa Carter (another accident). She also whacked Rick Webber during a mental breakdown.
#7 Michael Quartermaine (Chad Duell)
Michael has a kill count of two – although both were bad people. Michael took out his evil stepmother Claudia Zacchara (Sarah Brown) and also took out Kobe (James Ryen) in a struggle over a gun. Don’t forget that Michael also threatened to kill Sonny over the AJ murder.
#8 Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn)
Alexis also has a body count of two – she knocked Luis Alcazar (Ted King) over a balcony railing – that’s karmic payback for ditching her while she was in labor. Alexis accidentally ran over Kiefer Bauer (Christian Alexander) after he beat Kristina Corinthos (Lexi Ainsworth) but that was more karmic just desserts.
#9 Sam Morgan (Kelly Monaco)
Sam killed once before she came to Port Charles – it was a guy named Bill Monroe – and she escaped jail time because it was self-defense. Sam’s second kill was also in self-defense when she shot Diego Alcazar (Ignacio Serricchio) who was trying to shoot her and Jason. Two kills – like mother, like daughter…
#10 Ava Jerome (Maura West)
If you’re shocked to see Ava this far down on the list, the thing is, we’ve only got her with one confirmed hands-on kill. Ava shot Connie Falconeri (Kelly Sullivan) herself but has ordered other deaths including AJ’s and who knows how many others. Ava’s bad news but doesn’t like getting her hands dirty.
Honorable Mentions –
It’s surprising when you look at the current population of Port Chuck just how many have taken lives. These are the honorable mentions who had a kill to their name but not enough to make the top 10 list.
Paul Hornsby (Richard Burgi) killed Kyle Sloane (Robb Derringer) and botched his attempt to whack Sonny. Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) offed Logan Hayes in self-defense. Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) stabbed her former lover Levi Dunkleman (good riddance).
Nathan West (Ryan Paevey) took out Peter Harrell while Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) shot Victor Cassadine (and could have killed others). Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher) may have killed Helena and ordered wife Hayden Barnes’ (Rebecca Budig) death.
Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) eradicated Marius Wolfe and thought she killed Carlos – she sure tried to. In fact, it’s easier to find a killer in Port Charles than a non-killer these days. You’ve got to wonder what the crime rate is in that little hamlet.
Share your thoughts on this list of killers – but remember before you comment – this is only current characters. There’s been a legion of homicidal maniacs pass through Port Chuck over the years – we just looked at the ones currently in residence.
