Jimmy Deshler (Rafe Kovich) “I guess it was a surprise to all of us.”

Nobody saw it coming. The quiet, sweet kid with the sociopathic father, and a vampire loving mother. His Father is gone, he watched his mother get murdered before his eyes. Sam Morgan adopted Rafe and made him part of her family. He fell in love with her sister, Molly, but her feelings were not reciprocated. His uncle Silas fought Sam for custody, only to give in and realize Rafe was better off with Sam. Silas and Sam then fell in love. Rafe had a tough life and he eventually turned to drugs. Still, nobody saw it coming. The writers had Rafe be responsible (physically) for running Patrick and Sabrina of the road, which ultimately killed their son. It came as a shock to us all when Molly and Rafe were involved in a high speed police chase, crashed, and Rafe ended up brain dead. They even teased us a little more when Nina was hallucinating that Rafe was awake and speaking to her.

It looks as though the fans were not the only one shocked by Jimmy Deshler’s exit from General Hospital and the death of his character Rafe. In a recent Soaps in Depth interview, Deshler explains that his character’s demise was shocking news to him as well. He learned that Rafe would pass away only days before having to tape the episode. “I guess it was just confidential and they didn’t want any of the story getting out, so I found out the Monday of the week it was happening. I guess it was a surprise to all of us,” he tells Soaps in Depth.

Deshler has been a part of the GH family since January of 2013. Although it is sad to see him go, there is no doubt Deshler will succeed in any project he pursues next. He disclosed to SID that there is a possibility he will be attending college, and focusing on someday being a part of the big screen. “I have kid of set it as my goal to get a feature film and have that be my next project I work on.”

We already miss that sweet face!

As much as we hope Victor Cassadine has him frozen in a cryogenic chamber with Jason Morgan, it looks as the Rafe will not be returning from the dead for the foreseeable future.

Victor Cassadine Was the One Behind the Accident, Did He Have an Accomplice?

One General Hospital mystery finally solved! On yesterday’s (August 7th) episode of General Hospital, Victor Cassadine revealed to Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake that HE in deed was the person responsible for causing Patrick’s accident that ultimately killed baby Gabriel. His intention was to prove his authority to Robin and let her know that he has the power to hurt her family if she doesn’t follow his rules at the Crichton-Clark Clinic. He divulged almost all the information fans have been waiting to hear for months. He explained that it was he who set the accident in motion, and that he put Rafe up to driving Patrick, Sabrina and Emma off the road by telling Rafe there was a possibility his Mother Alison Barrington, was still alive. Robin asked him how he even knew “that poor boy” and he gave a sketchy response.

Soon after Robin and Victor’s conversation, the scene cut to Nina. It would make sense that Victor has an accomplice to explain how he got his hands on Rafe to talk him into doing something like that. It sure seems like Nina and Victor know one another since she was also at the Crichton-Clark Clinic when she was recovering from her supposed coma. Did Victor use Nina to get to Rafe? When Silas told Nina the news he had just heard from Molly, that Rafe told her someone put him up to it, Nina has a strange look on her face as if she were guilty.

Do you think Victor had an accomplice in this whole thing? SHARE if you think Nina is as guilty as she is crazy!

Ron Carlivati Explains Why Lucy Didn’t Say Goodbye to Rafe

If you know Port Charles and General Hospital history regarding the relationship between Lucy Coe and Rafe Kovich, you were probably wondering why Lucy wasn’t there by his side at the time of his passing. Fans were outraged at the fact that the only person who knew Rafe as a child (other than his uncle Dr. Silas Clay), was not there for him when he needed comfort from family the most.

Although Lucy wasn’t there at the time of Rafe’s death, it was shown that Lucy had found out the tragic news after the fact. Lucy stumbled into The Floating Rib and she was crying. She was able to express her feelings to her good friend, Felicia.

General Hospital’s Head Writer, Ron Carlivati, explains why Lucy wasn’t present in the hospital when Rafe died. “There was so much story going on at the hospital with Molly and Rafe, with Alice.” he said. “It was one more character to add into that mix and the days just became too big and too complicated. So, we decided to give Lucy her own separate moment after the fact (to mourn Rafe).”

Let us know what you think. Do you agree or disagree with Carlivati’s decision?

Will Patrick Fall for Sam and Still Keep the Secret About Jason?

Sam and Patrick have been friends for a long time. They have been there for each other through the hard times. Patrick was the one who operated on Jason when his life was hanging in the balance. He saved Jason for Sam and only Sam. At that time, Patrick blamed Jason for the death of Robin, as she was trying to come up with a cure for Jason in the lab when it blew up. Dr. Drake was hesitant to perform surgery on Jason to due the nature of his career. He felt that Jason’s life wasn’t worth saving until Sam stepped in and pleaded with him to save Jason so she wouldn’t be left without a husband.

Sam was there for Patrick when he needed a shoulder to lean on when he was trying to let go of Robin in order to move on with Sabrina. Patrick gave Sam advice when she was unsure about her relationship with Silas. Sam also was in Patrick’s corner when Robin decided to leave him and Emma shortly after finally being reunited with her family. Unknowingly to Sam, Robin is away trying to save Jason’s life and Patrick is keeping the secret from Sam.

Patrick has recently suffered the tragedy of losing his son in a car accident. His good friend and P.I. Sam, has been helping him through it all emotional as well as aiding in the investigation to find out who caused their car to run off the road. Through this journey together, Patrick and Sam have grown much closer. They found out that the car that ran Patrick and Sabrina off the road belonged to Silas, and the one driving the night of the accident was Rafe. Rafe is Silas’ nephew and Sam’s foster son. Sam is even standing by Patrick after the operation on Rafe took a turn for the worse which left her foster son brain dead.

As Sam and Patrick grow closer, they may even fall in love. However, Patrick is keeping a very large secret from Sam. Will Patrick’s guilt keep him from taking a step towards a romantic relationship with Sam? Or will Patrick fall in love with her just as Jason is due to return to Port Charles?

If Sam and Patrick begin a romantic relationship, when it comes out that Patrick has known this whole time that Jason could possibly be brought back to her, it is hard to believe that Sam would ever forgive him. Perhaps Patrick should come clean before they get involved romantically.

We Know Who Caused the Accident!

Sam the Private Investigator and friend Patrick Drake are on the case to find the individual responsible for Sabrina and Patrick’s accident. As a result of the accident, Sabrona went into very premature labor and baby Gabriel passed away just shortly after he was born. Sabrina left Port Charles to be with her cousin Juan Santiago and family in Puerto Rico in order to deal with the grief of her loss. Patrick, a distraught Father, is sticking around PC and is determined to find the person who did this to his family.

Lately there has been a lot of speculation on who could have caused the accident. The writers have been making it look a lot like it was Rafe, and some fans thought that it was too obvious. Others suspected Nina, since she can walk and all, why not drive too? They also suspected Levi because well, no one is really sure what that creep is up to and doing in Port Charles.

But according to an article in Soap Opera Digest, it has been revealed that the person who caused the accident is in deed Rafe! The writers wanted to incorporate the story with the drug trafficing that has been going on with Fluke and the Jerome family. Head Writer Ron Carlivati commented on the drug use in Port Charles, he said, “With the influx of drugs in town, we thought that someone should be doing them, and Rafe drew the short straw.”

Rafe Has a Flashback

Patrick, Sabrina, and Emma were on their way home from Emma’s recital when someone ran their car off the road. Sabrina ended up going into labor at 26 weeks gestation. Sadly, after spending some time in the NICU at General Hospital, baby Gabriel passed away. Now everyone wants to know who is behind the accident that caused Patrick and Sabrina to go off the road, inadvertently killing their son.

Sam is on a mission to help her good friend Patrick figure out who did this to them. In casual conversation, Sam mentions the situation to Rafe, and at that moment he has a very strong look of guilt written all over his face.

In a recent spoiler, information suggests that Rafe has a disturbing flashback/memory. Since we have scene that he has gotten himself into bad habits like stealing money to pay for and use drugs, it isn’t far fetched to make the assumption that he was the one behind the wheel that night, causing Sabrina and Patrick’s accident. The troubled teen has been on a downward spiral ever since the death of his Mother and being rejected by the girl he loves, Molly.

Could this memory be a flashback to what happened the night of the accident? It seems as if the drugs are clouding his mind and judgement. Perhaps Rafe is the one that caused the accident. Keep watching General Hospital on ABC to find out the truth behind the drama.
