General Hospital spoilers tease that the identity of The Hook will soon be revealed, but perhaps it’s not anyone you’d think. Trina Robinson (Tabyana Ali) even expressed her doubts in a recent GH episode when she told Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) it may be someone else entirely-she could even be Kim Nero (most recently Tamara Braun) back for revenge!
This may be a stretch, but Drew Cain (Cameron Mathison) had recently mentioned his late son Oscar Nero’s (Garren Lake Stitt) birthday. Kim went over the deep end when Oscar died, and Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy) was his first girlfriend.
Then both Drew and Julian Jerome (William DeVry) died, and the last time Kim was mentioned she lived in New York and had a little boy.
But what if something happened to the little boy, who could have been either Frankendrew (Roger Howarth) or Julian’s, and she went berserk again?
She could target most of the same people who have been targeted, wanting revenge.
The note that Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) received, from her efforts to draw out the Hook, was typed on a typewriter with a damaged “O” key- which of course is the first letter in “Oscar”.
Oscar had the really bad seizure that led up to his eventual death in Niagara Falls, on a trip with Trina, Cameron Webber (William Lipton) and of course Joss.
The publicity over the sex video and Trina’s trial could have easily reached Kim and so she would know that Cam and Joss were at least at the time, a serious couple.
Now, let’s look at the rest of the Hook attack victims and Kim’s reasons for attacking them.
The first attack was Ava Jerome Cassadine (Maura West); in a twisted mind, she could somehow blame her for Julian’s death if her grief was cumulative.
On the other hand, Ava was in Niagara Falls at the same time as the teens, with Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) and Kim could somehow blameshift something to her that could have contributed to Oscar’s death.
Then, came Brando Corbin (Johnny Wactor) – he just got in the way, it was clear Joss was the intended victim and Ava might feel she should have still been mourning Oscar.
Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) came next, and she turned down Frankendrew – Franco with Drew’s memories – when he needed a lawyer.
Kim probably knows about Franco’s murder by Peter August (Wes Ramsey) but she wouldn’t have associated Franco with Drew anymore by that time.
Diane thought the Hook was vaguely familiar, which could track with having seen Kim around several years ago.
While there’s no word on Tamara Braun reprising Kim Nero on GH, she hasn’t filmed at DOOL for six months after her character there, Ava Vitali, was put in mental health care – only recently happening onscreen.
The next victims were random, Oz Haggerty (Max Faugno) possibly, like Brando, being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The most recent deaths were the ones of the snake smuggler who trafficked in exotic snakes, where the venom for the end of the hook would come from.
Then there was Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse) who was tracking down a lead.
The only thing that doesn’t fit is Rory having an earring belonging to Ryan’s first murder victim in his pocket-but again, Kim is a doctor-could she have delivered Esmé Prince (Avery Kristen Pohl)?
The latest attack which was Friday, December 30th’s cliffhanger and will continue Tuesday, January 3, is looking like Joss – and if Kim knows her mom stole Drew, Carly Spencer (Laura Wright) might be next!
