General Hospital (GH) spoilers indicate Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) didn’t ask Dr Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) to stop by her house on a whim. Anna thinks Dr Obrecht is the key to unlocking her memories and the secrets tied to Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart). But will Dr O help Anna or also refuse to fill her in on her lost past as Valentin has done?
If you know your General Hospital history, there are a couple of factors in play here. First, Dr Obrecht hates Anna because the love of Liesl’s life, Cesar Faison (Anders Hove), is totally smitten with the British spy. Liesl lost out again and again over the years to Anna because Faison was obsessed with her. At one particularly low point, Faison wanted Liesl to wear an Anna mask while they made love.
Although Faison is out of the picture right now, her true love’s desire for Anna still irks Liesl. That’s why when Dr O shows up to Anna’s house on invitation, she smirks that Anna must be desperate to call on her. Despite the fact that Anna never returned Faison’s affection doesn’t make Dr O hate Anna any less. General Hospital spoilers know this could throw a monkey wrench into Anna’s plans to get answers from her.
But Liesl could prove helpful, if she’s in the mood to open up. Not only does Liesl have a history with the Cassadines, but also with the DVX cartel and that’s what Anna thinks ties Valentin into her own history. This is deep General Hospital history so newer viewers might not know what the DVX cartel was and how it ties into many lives on GH.
A long time ago, DVX was an alliance of bad guys (and gals) that did bad things. Anna was a WSB agent but had turned double agent and was working for the DVX. Anna didn’t always have clean hands. When Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) found out Anna had been playing both sides and working with DVX, he divorced her. It was a mess.
Also working with DVX was Tracy Quartermaine’s (Jane Elliot) ex-husband Larry Ashton (Hugo Napier). What’s interesting about resurrecting the DVX is that Tracy just got a letter from Larry so her final plot before she retires might tie into Anna and Valentin’s storyline. General Hospital spoilers say Anna is convinced she put a kill order on Valentin because he was involved with DVX.
Let’s hope the General Hospital writers have done their homework and remember that Anna was a DVX operative at one point and had betrayed the WSB. Could it be that Anna and Valentin worked together for DVX? We know Anna took out a WSB contract on Valentin but he was just a hunchback analyst back then, so what could he have done to inspire her killing wrath?
Perhaps Valentin uncovered that Anna was a double agent and was going to expose her and she put a kill order on him, blaming him for her crimes, so he had to flee the WSB. Valentin has hinted again and again that Anna has done him a great wrong, and this goes beyond her rejecting a kiss from him. Will Anna digging into Valentin’s past expose her own dirty laundry?
No doubt Dr Obrecht knows a lot of Anna’s shady back story, but she might not know Anna has whitewashed it and cleansed it from her memory. Will Dr O fill in the blanks for Anna or will she taunt Anna just as Valentin did? Share your comments on Anna, Dr Obrecht, and Valentin’s shared past with the spy.
