Warren Bauer is a fictional character from the ABC Daytime soap opera, General Hospital. Bradley Cole was cast in the short-term role—originally called Carlton[1]—in early 2010.[2][3] He is the father of Kiefer Bauer and husband of Melinda Bauer.[1]

Warren first appears on March 17, 2010, when Lucky Spencer questions him regarding the night of Kristina Davis's first attack. Warren reappears in April, where he is seen as a business associate of Jasper Jacks and states that he thinks Kiefer should not have gotten involved with Kristina. When Kiefer is hit by a car and dies, Warren discovers from Mac Scorpio that Alexis Davis accidentally hit him. Outraged, Warren swears revenge on both Alexis and Kristina. He confronts Kristina and attempts to get her to change her statement while fueling her grief and guilt. He is seen various times around town, swearing revenge and demanding to know why Alexis is free. When Alexis gets off with a suspended sentence and community service, Warren files a wrongful death claim. In a verbal altercation with Kristina and her father Sonny Corinthos, Sonny deducts that Kiefer was abusive because he was abused by Warren. In July, Warren threatens to sue for obstruction of justice unless he gets Kristina's medical records. Warren corners Kristina and demands she sign a release for her records. Kristina refuses and berates him for abusing Kiefer. Warren snaps and attempts to slap Kristina, but Michael Corinthos rushes to her rescue. Michael strangles him to near-death, but is stopped by Lucky, Mac, and Steven Webber. Lucky and Mac deduce what happened and make it impossible for Warren to press charges. Subsequently, Warren suffers a psychotic break and induces a shootout, critically wounding Mac and Ethan Lovett before turning his attention to Michael and Kristina. Before he can pull the trigger, Mac shoots him in the back. Warren's last words are to Kristina: "This is all your fault."

Dr. Silas Clay is a fictional character from the ABC daytime soap opera General Hospital. The role has been portrayed by Michael Easton since May 13, 2013.

Casting[edit]

Following the cancellation of fellow ABC daytime soap opera One Life to Live in January 2012, it was announced that Michael Easton, who had portrayed the role of John McBain on the series since October 2003, would bring his character over to General Hospital, after a venture to bring One Life to Live online had fallen apart. Easton had portrayed the character of McBain on General Hospital for little less than a year before it was announced that the efforts to bring One Life to Live online had begun again, and thus, they were recalling the character of John McBain (as well as two other former One Life to Live characters) back to the parent series. As Easton was still under contract with ABC at this time, the decision was made to reintroduce the actors to General Hospital as brand new characters. Prior to his role on One Life to Live, Easton had portrayed the role of vampire Caleb Morley on the defunct General Hospital spinoff, Port Charles from May 2001 to October 2003. In early 2013, Easton's portrayal of Morley was revisited on General Hospital, with the series retconning the entire Morley identity as an alter ego of psychotic serial killer Stephen Clay. In Easton's new role as Dr. Silas Clay, he serves as Stephen's older brother, as well as the paternal uncle of Stephen's son, Rafe Kovich, Jr., with any and all references to John McBain in the General Hospital canon eliminated.

Storylines[edit]

In May 2013, Samantha Morgan (Kelly Monaco) finds herself in a Manhattan Emergency Room. While there, she encounters a doctor whom she initially confuses for serial killer Stephen Clay, who had kidnapped her and her son, Daniel, a few months earlier. The doctor eventually introduces himself as Dr. Silas Clay, older brother to the deranged serial killer, with whom he had lost contact with a decade earlier. Sam tells him about her last encounter with Stephen, as well as Stephen's son, Rafe Kovich, Jr. (Jimmy Deshler), currently living with Sam. Silas says he doesn't care about his nephew, and feels Rafe is in good hands with Sam. Upset at his lack of care for Rafe, Sam leaves. Silas later shows up at Sam's house, wanting to meet Rafe. Sam refuses, saying Rafe is still traumatized by seeing his mother, Alison Barrington (Erin Hershey Presley), being killed by Stephen. As Silas is about to leave, Rafe shows up, and Silas tries to introduce himself, but Rafe rejects him, saying he wants nothing to do with Stephen Clay. Sam tells Silas to leave, but Silas ominously warns Sam that he's not giving up. The next day, he gives Sam papers he's filed for legal custody of Rafe. Sam is surprised and outraged, as is Rafe, and they both tell Silas that they will fight him. Silas, though, will not back down. In court, Diane Miller, who Silas hired, trashes both Sam and her late husband, Jason Morgan, in order to depict Sam as an unfit mother. After the hearing, Sam stays behind to confront Silas, who tells Sam that her son Danny is sick. Silas follows Sam to the hospital and informs her that Danny has cancer, before leaving abruptly. Later, Silas runs into Dr. Patrick Drake and demands to see the test results, but Patrick refuses. While Sam is at the hospital waiting for the results of Danny's biopsy, Silas is awarded custody of Rafe and decides to take him back to Manhattan. He later has a change of heart and drops Rafe back at Alexis' while he goes to General Hospital to see Sam. There, he helps Sam with Danny's treatment and joins the General Hospital staff. Meanwhile, Ava Jerome (Maura West) comes to town, and it's revealed the two were once romantically involved. Meanwhile, Silas is treating Franco (Roger Howarth), and he realizes Ava is hiding a secret involving Franco. Soon after, Kiki Jerome (Kristen Alderson), comes to the hospital, revealed to Silas as Ava's daughter. Ava insists Kiki is Franco's daughter, but it's later revealed that Silas could possibly be Kiki's father. In a conversation with Morgan Corinthos (Bryan Craig), Ava confirms that Kiki is, in fact, Silas' daughter. Kiki's true paternity is published in the newspaper, and Silas finds out the truth. He confronts Ava, who confirms the article is true.

Stephen Clay is a fictional character from the ABC Daytime soap opera, General Hospital, portrayed by Michael Easton. The character is an adaptation of the fictional vampire character, Caleb Morley, originated by Easton on the General Hospital spin-off Port Charles from 2001 through 2003. When Caleb was killed at the end of "Tempted," he eventually returned during the story arc "Naked Eyes," this time in the guise of the vampire rock star "Stephen Clay." Caleb Morley aka Stephen Clay remained a fan favorite and primary character until the cancellation of Port Charles in October 2003. Easton joined the cast of One Life to Live, where he portrayed the role of John McBain until its cancellation in January 2012 and then brought the character of McBain to General Hospital. When several former Port Charles cast members and characters joined General Hospital in 2013, writers decided to revisit Caleb's storyline and adapt to the General Hospital storylines.

Storylines[edit]

In January 2013, Lucy Coe, having recently returned to Port Charles after a ten-year absence, has a run-in with Detective John McBain. Lucy claims McBain is a vampire named Caleb Morley, and attempts to stake him in the chest. She is arrested and eventually sent to Ferncliff sanatorium. In the wake of her hospitalization, her estranged husband Kevin Collins returns, stating Lucy's claims of Caleb's existence are merely a psychotic delusion. Meanwhile, Alison Barrington returns to Port Charles, with her teenage son, Rafe Kovich, Jr.. Alison also mistakes McBain for Caleb, prompting her to flee. Alison is confronted by Caleb, who kills her. McBain arrives and finds a visibly shaken Rafe holding the murder weapon. Rafe is detained as the primary suspect, and when questioned by Police Commissioner Anna Devane, claims McBain murdered his mother. Meanwhile, Lucy, having learned of Alison's murder, stages a breakout from Ferncliff, with the assistance of Heather Webber and Todd Manning, determined to protect Rafe.

Meanwhile, Caleb poses as McBain and removes Rafe from police custody. He kills a police officer and tries to take Rafe out of Port Charles, but Rafe runs away. He visits a professor at Port Charles University and kills him when he reveals he knows about Caleb. While he's there, Sam Morgan comes to PCU looking for the professor. Caleb becomes fixated on her, believing she's Livvie Locke, his former wife. Caleb goes to the pier, where Heather is with Sam's son, Danny. Caleb chokes Heather and throws her into the water. He tries to take Danny but Todd stops him. After the police leave, he finds Sam and Danny on the pier and kidnaps them. Meanwhile, John, Lucy, and Rafe break out of police custody to try to save Sam and Danny. John heads to PCU, and finds out "Caleb" is actually Stephen Clay, a former rock musician who went insane after the death of his wife, Livvie. Clay played the persona of a vampire onstage and, after his wife died, he believed he was an actual vampire and went on a killing spree before being arrested and thrown into a mental institution he escaped from. Meanwhile, "Caleb" takes Sam and Danny to Wyndemere, telling Sam they'll be reunited once he bites her three times. John, Lucy, and Rafe arrive to find Danny alone. "Caleb" ties Sam up in the tunnels but eventually John and Lucy arrive and kill him. Later, Lucy views Stephen's body at the morgue she notices the ring is missing, when Anna gets Lucy out of the morgue. It's revealed the morgue attendant had the ring and when he tries it on, the young attendant is seen lying dead as the figure walks off meaning there really wasn't a Stephen Clay, but Caleb Morley, the vampire, again using his former alias.

Felix DuBois is a fictional character on the ABC soap opera General Hospital. Marc Anthony Samuel was hired for the role on a contract status in 2012, first appearing on December 4.[5]

Storylines[edit]

Felix DuBois arrives at General Hospital in December 2012 as a friend of fellow student nurse, Sabrina Santiago.[5] He reveals he also works for Lucy Coe as a cosmetics consultant, and agrees to help Sabrina contact her for help with the Ball.

Reception[edit]

Soon after Marc Anthony Samuel's debut as Felix, an openly gay male nurse, some viewers criticized what they called stereotypical homosexual characterization. Most notably, blogger Andy Towle wrote on Towleroad.com, "To establish his character as gay, his first scenes involved him pulling out a tube of lipstick and offering to touch up a heterosexual woman. Oy."[6] Headwriter at the time Ron Carlivati quickly spoke up in defense, citing his experience and various other homosexual characters he created, as well as the GLAAD Media Award he received. Carlivati explained the lipstick was an integral plot point yet to be seen on-screen. Responding directly on Towle's post, Carlivati said, "Does this make him too queeny? Not straight-acting enough? Is that the only type of gay character allowed on TV now? As far as I'm concerned, to be offended by this character is what is offensive."[7] The continued discussion, which Carlivati named "Lipstick-gate"[8][9] quickly made headlines.[8][10][11] Towle soon posted again, stating, "There's no question in my mind that Mr. Carlivati should be allowed the chance to develop his character more fully before judgment is passed and I regret if my commentary suggested that it should. [...] I'm looking forward to seeing how his Felix Dubois character develops and thank him for his remarks and reaction."[7][9][11]

International Crime Lord

Theo Hoffman is a fictional character on the ABC soap opera General Hospital. Daniel Benzali portrayed the role, first appearing on December 6, 2010.[13][14] Headwriter at the time Robert Guza Jr. named the character after Benzali's famed role as Theodore Hoffman on Murder One.[15] The network was mysterious when discussing his role, stating "there is more to Theo than meets the eye."[13] Later that month, Hoffman was revealed to be The Balkan, the international crime lord terrorizing Brenda Barrett.[15]

Theo Hoffman is first seen in Port Charles at General Hospital, complaining about a number of vague symptoms. The doctors run a battery of tests, meanwhile Theo befriends Dr. Robin Scorpio.[13] They determine he is healthy, and he returns a few days later filing a malpractice suit against the hospital, stating they did not correctly diagnose his hypochondria.[14][15]

Theo is soon seen starting work at Diane Miller's law firm,[15] where she puts him in charge of the wrongful death lawsuit filed against mobster Sonny Corinthos' fiancée, Brenda Barrett, and his newfound son, Dante Falconeri. In order to save Dante's life, Brenda had shot a man named Anton Banovic, who had been sent by an international crime lord named The Balkan to kidnap Brenda. Brenda had been involved with The Balkan's son, Aleksander Janáček, before ending things when she realized he was a criminal. Aleksander had stalked Brenda to New York City, where she was being guarded at the time by Dante. One night Aleksander had approached the couple, and was about to kill Dante when Brenda picked up his gun and shot Aleksander. Dante had covered up the death to spare Brenda further trauma. The Balkan had been after Brenda ever since. Soon it is revealed that Theo Hoffman is actually The Balkan, and is determined to make Brenda pay for Aleksander's death.

On Brenda's wedding day it is publicly announced that Brenda had been pregnant with Aleksander's child and miscarried. Meanwhile, Suzanne Stanwyck, Brenda's coworker and friend, is secretly revealed to be Theo Hoffman's wife.[16] After the ceremony, Theo kidnaps Brenda by bombing her limo with a decoy, Sam McCall, in her place. Once he has her captive, he learns that Brenda had been pregnant with his grandson, and becomes suspicious that the child is still alive. He berates Suzanne and Brenda for his location, but both insist the child died. Eventually, Sonny, Dante and Jason Morgan rescue Brenda while Theo and Suzanne get away. On March 31, 2011, Theo is tricked into believing that he is going to meet his grandson but is killed by Suzanne.

Lauren Katherine "Kiki" Jerome (formerly Corinthos),[17] born on May 29, 1992,[18] is a fictional character from the original ABC Daytime drama General Hospital. The role was originated by Kristen Alderson in the spring of 2013.

Casting and creation[edit]

In November 2009, actor James Franco began appearing on General Hospital as a guest star as the crazed artist turned serial killer, Robert "Franco" Frank.[19] The character of Lauren was first written into the series on December 21, 2009 as Franco, the character's daughter. Lauren was apparently taken away by her "bitch" of a mother.[20] In April 2012, Franco is revealed to be the fraternal twin brother of Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) making him, and Lauren by extension members of the iconic Quartermaine family.[21] It is not until the May 20, 2013, that viewers learn that Alderson is actually Lauren.[17]

Alderson had previously appeared on the series as a One Life to Live character, Starr Manning. Upon the serial's cancellation, Alderson and several co-stars appeared on General Hospital as their One Life to Live characters for more than a year.[22] When One Life was re-launched as a web series, the production company, Prospect Park reacquired the rights to the characters. It was initially believed that Alderson would briefly exit as Starr, and return later; however, ABC instead opted out of negotiations and chose to create a brand new character for Alderson.[23] Alderson made her first appearance on May 13, 2013 on a contractual basis as Lauren "Kiki" Jerome.[24]

Characterization[edit]

According to Alderson, Lauren is very different from Starr, but said the two still had some similarities. Alderson had been posting several pictures via social media but intentionally hiding her hair leading to speculation that her appearance would be very different.[24] A Soapnet promo confirmed Alderon's change in appearance in early May.[25] Alderson revealed to Soap Opera Digest that Kiki is reminiscent of a younger Starr who is quite the trouble maker.[26]

Storylines[edit]

Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) comes looking for his younger brother Morgan (Bryan Craig) at the apartment of Ava Jerome (Maura West) and finds Ava's daughter, Lauren "Kiki" Jerome. Kiki convinces Morgan to play another game with a few friends to win back the money he's lost despite Michael's disapproval. Their plan goes awry when Kiki and Morgan are accused of cheating and Morgan's father Sonny (Maurice Benard) saves them from the debt collectors and forces Morgan to leave with him and Michael. However, Kiki follows Morgan to Port Charles and moves in with him and Michael. Kiki and Morgan move out of Michael's apartment and into the Quartermaine mansion when it is revealed that Kiki is a Quartermaine. Kiki comes back to Michael's apartment upset, where Kiki and Michael share a kiss, but stop. It is later revealed they are cousins. Kiki and Michael are attracted to each other and decide to stay away from each other. When Danny Morgan needs a bone marrow transplant, Kiki and Michael run into each other and share another kiss, only to be caught by Brad Cooper (Parry Shen), who threatens to tell the news about their kiss if Michael does not spend one night with him. Fortunately, Michael finds out Brad and Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud)'s secret and forces Brad to back off. On July 18 Michael tells Morgan about their kiss and Morgan punches him and storms off to the hospital to find Kiki. Morgan stumbles upon a conversation between Ava and Silas Clay (Michael Easton) and it is revealed that Kiki is Clay's daughter not Franco's. Morgan proposes to Kiki as a way to keep her from Michael, and she accepts. However, the truth about her paternity is published in the newspaper. Morgan rushes Kiki to court house and they elope in a legal ceremony before Michael can tell her. Kiki tries to stay committed to Morgan, but has a hard time forgetting Michael. Meanwhile, she tells her mother that she's done with her. Due to Ava's blackmailing, however, Morgan convinces Kiki to give her mom a second chance. However, during Morgan & Kiki's wedding reception thrown by Ava, Sonny publicly reveals Morgan's deceit. Kiki is upset, and breaks up with Morgan. When Morgan leaves, Michael & Kiki are left alone, and have a long talk about their feelings, finally deciding to start a relationship, willing to fight any challenges they'll face together. KiKi declines Michael's offer to move in with him and decides to ask Ava if she could stay in the hotel with her. Michael is able to obtain a key to the room and they walk in on Morgan and Ava in bed together. An argument ensues resulting in Kiki slapping Ava and walking out with Michael.

Development[edit]

Introduction[edit]

In late 2012, upon the death of Edward Quartermaine (John Ingle), his daughter Tracy (Jane Elliot) and grandson A. J. (Sean Kanan) begin battling for control of the family company ELQ. When the share holders, Edward's children and grandchildren, go into dead lock, A. J. and Tracy begin looking for ways around the situation. Heather Webber leads A. J. to believe that there is another Quartermaine and On January 25, 2013, Carly hints that Heather's theory is true but when A. J. questions her, Carly denies knowing anything.[27] On Tracy's orders, Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary) blackmails Carly for the information. On February 8, Carly confirms that Lauren Frank could be the potential heir.[28] The search then begins with Luke working for Tracy, and private investigator Damian Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) working on A. J.'s behalf. In May 2013, Spinelli tracks down a young girl who thanks to Luke pretends to be Lauren to keep him distracted while Luke meets with Ava Jerome (Maura West), Lauren's mother. Ava confirms that Franco is Lauren's biological father and Luke informs her that Lauren is entitled to a share of the Quartermaine fortune.[29]

Romances[edit]

On May 14, 2013, it is revealed that Morgan and Kiki are dating.[30] Kiki and Morgan's relationship is immediately met with opposition due to her involvement in his gambling.[31] A Soapnet promo indicated that Alderson's Kiki could potentially drive a wedge between Michael and Morgan.[32] Unaware that they are cousins, Kiki and Michael share a kiss.

Reception[edit]

The decision to re-introduce all three actors in new roles simultaneously was met with skepticism. "[It] will either be a trainwreck or brilliant," said Sara Bibel.[33]

Siobhan Mary Francis Spencer (née McKenna) is a fictional character from the American daytime soap opera General Hospital. Portrayed by actress Erin Chambers, she first appeared in September, 2010, on a recurring basis.[35] Siobhan becomes a love interest for Lucky Spencer (Jonathan Jackson). In January 2011, it was announced that Chambers was put on contract with the series, shortly after the announcement that Rebecca Herbst had been let go, who portrays the other love interest of Lucky.[36] Herbst was kept on, and Chambers was let go from the series in August 2011.[37] Chambers briefly reprised the role in November 2011, when her character appears to Lucky in a dream.

Storylines[edit]

Siobhan sees Lucky Spencer posing as Ronan O' Reilly[35] in Ireland and accuses him of killing her boyfriend. She hears him talking about being undercover, so Lucky takes her with him back to Port Charles for safety. Siobhan is revealed to be working for The Balkan, who is blackmailing her with threats to her kidnapped sister Fiona.[38] Lucky finds out and helps her rescue her sister. They plan a green card marriage, but at the ceremony learn that Lucky's son Jake had been in a hit and run accident. They later get married in May 2011.

Reception[edit]

Chambers received praise for her performance of Siobhan. During the reveal of Siobhan's alliance with The Balkan and betrayal to Lucky, entertainment journalist Michael Fairman commented: "This week, [Jonathan Jackson] was ably well-supported in performances by newcomer Erin Chambers (Siobhan) who in twist and turns conveyed high emotional stakes for Jackson to play off of."[38] Entertainment website Zap2it named Chambers the No. 6 Top Newcomer of 2010, elaborating: "Chambers’ portrayal of the strong-willed, independent-yet-vulnerable Siobhan has injected refreshing new energy into Lucky’s storyline and has proven to be one of the few bright spots in the monotonous Balkan storyline."[39] By the end of 2011, Zap2it named Siobhan and Lucky the No. 6 Worst Soap Opera Couple of 2011, stating: "When General Hospital's Siobhan (Erin Chambers) was first introduced in 2010, the character was like a breath of fresh, Irish spring air. (...) We spent 2011 desperately clinging to those few early memories, as Siobhan transformed from an appealing character into a shrill, insecure harpy (...) Try as Jackson and Chambers might, the actors were unable to salvage an ounce of their prior appeal as a couple."[40]

Meanwhile, Trey bashes Sonny's girlfriend Kate Howard when it is revealed that her alternate personality caused the car accident killing Starr's family. Meanwhile, Kristina reveals her true feelings for Trey and they share their first kiss in July 2012; however, Trey is hesitant about getting involved with her fearing it will interfere with the show.

Kristina continues her flirtatious behavior while Trey becomes determined to catch Sonny doing something illegal on camera. Trey is shocked to find his father in prison in Atlantic City.

In September 2012, Trey has a confrontation with Kate, who recognizes a medal that he as wearing as being identical to one that Joe wore the night he raped her, leading her to realize that Trey is the son she conceived as the result of the rape.

Storylines[edit]

Dr. Liesl Obrecht first appears at a psychiatric hospital in Lucerne, Switzerland, where Anna Devane is searching for her presumably deceased daughter, Robin Scorpio, and Luke Spencer is searching for Anna. Obrecht convinces them Robin is not there, but after they leave, she is revealed to be working with Duke Lavery, later revealed to be reputed criminal Cesar Faison in disguise. Along with Robin, Faison is holding the real Duke captive, with Obrecht's assistance. In November, Obrecht encounters Anna's ex-husband, Robert Scorpio and John McBain at the hospital. Robert finds Robin, and is subsequently poisoned by Obrecht. In the wake of Faison's exposure and capture, Obrecht delivers Robin to Faison's partner, Jerry Jacks. Obrecht re-surfaces in Port Charles, encountering Dr. Britt Westbourne, who reveals herself to be Obrecht's daughter. During the Nurses' Ball, Obrecht is seen talking to a photo of Faison, where it is revealed that he is Britt's father. Britt was just dumped by Patrick Drake, Robin's husband, but wants him back. Obrecht schemes to get Britt pregnant and pass it off as Patrick's baby. Obrecht leaves, and returns a few months later. Obrecht later reveals how Faison never loved her because he was in love with Anna. Obrecht decides to poison Anna as revenge, but ends up poisoning Duke instead. In the meantime, Obrecht's past is uncovered, and Anna is made aware of her connection to Britt & her poisoning of Duke. By the time she talks to Britt, though, Obrecht has disappeared. She returns after Britt gives birth to her son, Ben. Obrecht is furious when Britt reveals that she told Patrick that Ben wasn't his. Britt tells Obrecht that she doesn't want Obrecht anywhere near her son. Obrecht then proceeds to knock Britt out and kidnap Ben. She then gives Ben to Robin, now on Cassadine Island. She goes to the prison where Faison is being held, and disguises herself as Anna to help him escape. Anna, however, shows up at the same time, but Obrecht knocks her out and escapes with Faison. Obrecht and Fasion would make their way to Cassadine Island where she would introduce Faison to his grandson Cesar Faison II (aka Ben Westbourne. During this time Obrecht would try to make love with Faison, but he tells her to put on the Anna mask, which shocked her and she would furiously slap him because of this. Obrecht said that she is done taking orders from him and leaves the room, and while in the dining room she would encounter Britt who demanded her mother to tell her where the baby is. Obrecht wouldn't tell her so Britt knocked out and left her there only for her to be found by Robert Scorpio and Anna Devane. Robert waked her up and they both asked Liesl where Robin was and she eventually told them that she was in the Cassadine lab. Before Anna and Robert left to go find Robin, Robert would knock her out with butt of the gun as a way of getting back at her for poisoning him. Obrecht would eventually wake up again and was shocked to see Robin pointing a gun at her and both of them would be confronted by Jerry Jacks. They would be joined by Nikolas Cassadine, Britt, Ben Westbourne, and Faison, where Jerry told fired a few shots at the walls telling everybody that he is in total control. He told Robin to go back to Port Charles and to make another cure for him while she, Nikolas , and Britt will be supervised by Obrecht and Faison. They all went to Wyndemere where they could hide out at so nobody could find them. Obrecht was still mad at Faison due to his obsession with Anna and they continued to argue about it. Both of them reminded Nikolas, Britt, and Robin that all three of them take orders from her and Faison. On Halloween both Obrecht and Faison harassed Robin and later heard Duke Lavery coming into the house wanting answers from Nikolas about the whereabouts of Anna. Obrecht quickly put on the Anna mask and was able to make Duke believe it was for a little while, but Duke began to figure out it wasn't Anna due to her bad manners and not wanting to arrest Faison immediately. Obrecht realized that Duke figured it out and she tooked of the mask, while Faison attacked him and they both threw him into the catacombs of Spoon Island. A fews day later Obrecht began taking food down there and Britt became suspicious when she caught her taking food down there. Obrecht covered her tracks by saying that Faison liked being down there and she was taking food to him. She would leave and headed down to the catacombs where Duke was tied up to a pole, and being tortured by Faison. Obrecht then tried to kill Duke with a knife, but Faison stopped her telling her that he needed Duke alive because of Anna. Obrecht was stunned and furious to find out that Faison was not over Anna and Duke was able to convince her to turn against him. She would attempt to attack Faison but he grabbed her and threw to the wall and tying her up to another pole beside Duke. He would leave and Duke and Obrecht decided to work together to get untied from the pole, and Nikolas would come down to try to untie them both. As he was trying to untie Obrecht Faison would come from behind and sucker punch him and knocking him out taking him somewhere else. Obrecht begged Faison to let her go but he told her to shut up and left, but Obrecht was able to untie herself and got a gun and pointed it at Duke. Anna would come barging in there demanding Liesl to put the gun but she would refused too and decided to kill as a way to hurt Anna. She blamed Anna for the reason Faison was obsessed with her and wanted her to pay for that. Anna told Liesl to kill her instead because she really hated her and she did not hate Duke at all. Obrecht became convinced by that and walked towards Anna as Duke untied himself and grabbed Liesl by the throat making her drop the gun and letting Anna get it. Duke and Anna tied her back up as she began saying German snide remarks, with Duke and Anna telling her to be quite. On November 27, 2013 Robert and Anna mentioned that Duke was escorting Liesl Obrecht off the island and taking her into custody.
