GH fans have been coming up with all kinds of wild theories as to the identity of the mysterious patient in the other room. Some just want beloved characters back from the dead, while others suspect a darker twist could be in play. Unfortunately, the soap has been tight-lipped about upcoming plot details, so you’re just going to have to stay tuned as the mystery unravels and the secrets are revealed.

Gh Bryan Craig Morgan
The most popular theory among fans is that it's Carly's son, Morgan, who perished tragically in a car explosion back in October of 2016. He somehow survived and is desperately trying to reach out to his mother for help. However, if this turns out to be true, Morgan will have to have a brand-new face because actor Bryan Craig is much too busy with his new series, GRAND HOTEL, to come back to GH for any length of time. But explosions are the perfect excuse for plastic surgery and a whole new look!
A likely suspect is Heather, who has enjoyed stays at all of Port Charles' finest prisons and mental health facilities. So who's to say she's not locked up in Ferncliff right now? Could this be GH's way of reintroducing the character to the canvas? Although it's unlikely Carly would want to help Heather given that the psycho has tried to kill her in the past!
Gh Kevin Ryan Twin
Dr. Kevin Collins has an evil twin named Ryan who wreaked all kinds of havoc in Port Charles back in the early '90s. While he supposedly perished when the funhouse where he was hiding out exploded, plenty of soap characters have come back from more permanent-seeming deaths than that!
Actually, way back when Kevin was seen with Faison's brain in a jar, some fans have suspected that he might actually be his evil twin, Ryan. And if that's the case, then perhaps that's Kevin who has been trapped in Ferncliff all this time? It's not the first time Ryan used his brother to escape a mental hospital. Could it be that Ryan has been on the loose this whole time and is "treating" Carly in Ferncliff while the real Kevin is being held prisoner?
Gh Nelle Phone
One unusual theory is that the man in the room trying to communicate with Carly is actually Nelle's dead fiancé, Zach. This would be a particularly juicy twist as Nelle is suspected of killing him by letting him drown. Zach and Carly teaming up in Ferncliff would expose pretty much all of Nelle's evil crimes!
Gh Tyler Christopher 05
Ever since Nikolas was shot by Valentin and fell over the balcony to his death, fans have been waiting for the character to resurface. Unfortunately, as former portrayer, Tyler Christopher, is currently busy playing Stefan O. DiMera over on NBC sudser DAYS OF OUR LIVES, a recast would be required to bring this character back to the canvas.
Gh Helena Copy
Speaking of Cassadines that never seem to stay dead... While Helena has come back from the grave a few times, her most recent demise does seem to be rather on the permanent side. But true evil never dies, and perhaps it's actually Helena on the other side of that wall alive and desperate to escape and take revenge on Port Charles?
Gh Bree Williamson Jpi
Viewers haven't seen Charlotte's mother ever since Valentin... "took care of her." While many believed Claudette to be dead, perhaps Valentin just locked her away in Ferncliff until he found another use for her?
It's definitely a reach, but there are still some GH fans so desperate to have Nathan back that they'll imagine any possible scenario that would mean Detective Sexypants isn't really dead. Unfortunately, this is the least likely of the fan scenarios being floated around, but with soaps, you never really know what will happen next!
