Following last nights eventful episode of General Hospital, which saw Dr Liesl Obrecht shot, fans have wondered if Obrecht actress Kathleen Gati is leaving the popular soap. We explore the characters fate as well as the actress career away from General Hospital.

What happened to Obrecht on General Hospital?

Monday’s episode (1 November) of the ABC soap saw Dr Liesl Obrecht shot by her daughter Britt Westbourne. Obrecht’s daughter Britt was trying to save her mother from Cassadine Island, where she is currently being held captive by Peter August.

On a mission to find her mother, Britt was joined by Jason Morgan, with the two seeking cover in an abandoned boathouse. After fixing up an old boat together, Jason ends up leaving to continue the search alone, handing Britt a gun to protect herself.

Soon after Jason leaves, Britt hears voices outside and, in the moment, she loses the pistol before finding a harpoon gun hanging on the wall. As the door of the boathouse opens, Britt aims and fires at the intruder.

Grabbing a nearby torch, she later discovers she had shot her mother, with some fans now concerned about Dr Liesl Obrecht’s future on the series.
