2. Kill someone that we know, but don't care about. Dr. Mayes. He was a "color-character" I liked and we did think he might be the killer but one second of "OH" doesn't lead to any more minutes of excitement.
Side Note: a friend of mine actually texted me and said "Who IS this guy that just died on GH"? So, there ya go.
3. Try to kill a lead character but not succeed. No, I didn't want Lucas to die, but he got better really quickly and got married. What pisses me off even more? The stupid interupptus "attempted murder" took away our chance for a bigger more joyful Brucas Wedding!
Thanks a lot.
4. Make the story move like molasses. The first murder happened well before the Nurses' Ball. Like in early May. Ergo-- when you spread out murders people don't care about and could frankly "forget" it's hard to get into.
5. Have a high-profile character involved (Hammy Finn) but take a turn into his addiction/life-saving serum story instead. Because.....HUH?
6. Choppy writing. Goosebumps books move at a better pace and have a better plot. Truth right there.
I have to say this is the dullest "serial murder mystery" I've even sat through on a soap. And I sat through the Text Message Killer.
