A domino effect could bring the truth — a bigger truth — to light.

Viewers have watched as Elizabeth has been in a back and forth battle with her conscience, and even though Finn stepped into the mix and urged her to stay quiet about her involvement with Nikolas and his scheme to hold Esme hostage, she’s finally reached her breaking point.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest, Rebecca Herbst detailed the reasoning for Liz’s decision and stated that she simply “does not want to live her life waiting for the other shoe to drop.”

As the actress reminded, she’s been there done that with the drama surrounding Peter and hiding his body only to have it turn up missing — and Peter alive — and she can’t handle going through something like that again.

While we wait to see what happens to Liz, as well as how Ava reacts as things begin to unfold, look back on other drama-filled moments in General Hospital’s complicated history in our photo gallery below.
