Port Charles got a major injection of criminal insanity on Monday with the return of Helena Cassadine to "General Hospital." It looks like she's got something planned for Nikolas and the newly refurbished GH, but we have absolutely no idea what other lives she's out to ruin this time. Which means, naturally, that EVERYONE should be worried. If history has taught us anything, it's that Helena likes to kill people. Or at least TRY to kill people. So in order to give the Port Charlesians a head start in protecting themselves from whatever Helena has planned this time around, we present this primer on Helena's murderous resume.
People Helena Has Tried to Kill
Luke and Laura Spencer: Back when Helena looked a lot more like Elizabeth Taylor, she attended the celebrated wedding of Luke and Laura. And then she placed a curse on them. Of course, as fearsome and resourceful as Helena can be, she doesn't (yet) have the powers of witchcraft, so the curse itself didn't actually kill Luke and Laura. But Helena kept at it, and pretty much worked toward killing Luke and Laura, off and on, for the next 20 years or so. Might she resume that mission and try to take Luke out? Murder Attempt: Fail
Kristen Bergman: Alexis's mother was an opera singer who caught the eye of Helena's megalomaniacal husband Mikkos. After Mikkos and Kristen's affair produced a child -- Alexis -- Helena sought her revenge. She slit Kristen's throat (!) right in front of young Alexis (!!). Murder Attempt: Success!
