The hook killer continues to terrorize the people of Port Charles General Hospital. In less than a month, the mysterious assailant has attacked Ava Jerome (Maura West), Brando Corbin (Johnny Wactor) and Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy). The killer is not finished yet as he continues to instill fear in everyone. As the story progresses, here’s a look at four possible suspects.
“General Hospital” fans first suspected that Esme Prince was the Hook killer
The hook killer made his presence known on the August 26 episode of General Hospital. The person snuck up during the Quartermaine picnic and stabbed Ava. Immediately, fans believed that Esme Prince (Avery Kristen Pohl) had attacked Ava.
Esme is Ava’s enemy, whose joy makes life miserable for Miss Jerome. After Ava finds out about Esme and Nikolas Cassadine’s (Marcus Coloma) affair, the two women wrestle on the Wyndemere balcony, causing Esme to fall. Esme has since “disappeared” but viewers know they weren’t the last to see her.

Esme is the prime suspect in Ava’s attack. However, fans are confused as to why she would kill Brando and attack Diane. Does she have a motive for seeing her dead? Or are they collateral damage on their path of destruction?
When Brando briefly regained consciousness, he gave police a lead on the hook killer. Brando recalled hearing jewelry jingling during his fight with his attacker. According to Brando, the next scene switches to Dex Heller (Evan Hofer) wearing dog tags.
While Dex’s dog tags could be a red herring, he can’t be ruled out as a suspect. Already shady about his partnership with Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) to bring down Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard). Not much is known about Dex’s past, so it’s possible he’s not the squeaky clean man he makes out to be.
The killer appears to be targeting people around Sonny, so Michael and Joss Jacks (Eden McCoy) should be careful around Dex.
General Hospital fans suspect Rory Cabrera is hiding something
Since his debut in General Hospital, Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse) has been portrayed as an upstanding citizen. The handsome officer quickly attracted the attention of Trina Robinson (Tabyana Ali) with his nice manner. Nevertheless, the fans are suspicious of the police officer.
Little is known about Rory’s history, and chances are he has had a dark past. Could his past include being a murderer?
Rory was suspected because of his obsession with Trina. With outside forces threatening to tear them apart, Rory sets out to eliminate them. Of course, Ava and Diane have close ties to Trina. As for Brando, it was a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Ryan Chamberlain is back to terrorize Port Charles as a hook killer
When it comes to fame General Hospital Villains, Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) is on the list. Ryan’s previous crimes include murder, so it’s possible he’s the hook killer. As for his motive, it’s difficult to find out.
Ryan’s goal was to win Ava back and he used his daughter Esme to help him with his plan. Esme seduced Nikolas into ending his marriage. However, Ryan’s plan backfired as his daughter was now “missing”. When Ryan learns that Ava is responsible for Esme’s disappearance, he could have taken revenge on his former fiancée.
As for Brando, the killer was initially after Joss until Brando came to the rescue. Joss was one of Esme’s rivals and Ryan may be after the people who hurt his daughter.
