Dr. Britt’s exit storyline was so heart-wrenching on General Hospital that the mere mention of it still makes us want to reach for the tissue box. Britt succumbed to ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ after heroically saving Joss from The Hook Kɪʟʟᴇʀ (Heather). But what really brought out the waterworks was the ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ scene, where she breathes her last in her mother’s lap. Many fans, amidst sobs, wondered what was the need to ᴋɪʟʟ her off so ʙʀᴜᴛᴀʟʟʏ. Even if actress Kelly Thiebaud was leaving General Hospital, they could’ve written her off as moving away from Port Charles.
Well, we agree that the exit could’ve definitely worked quite alright if Britt had just moved away from Port Charles on General Hospital, just the way Britt had originally planned. However, it would not have had the same kind of impact. Dr. Britt’s heroic sacrifice of her life to save Joss will be remembered forever. Now, coming to the reason behind Kelly’s exit from the soap, it was initially believed that she was dropping out of General Hospital in favor of Station 19. However, that is not the case. Actress Kelly Thiebaud revealed that she did not do it for a project but for LOVE!
The General Hospital star had been navigating a long-distance relationship with her boyfriend for over a year. And she had started to feel the strain of the distance, thus wanting to be closer to the man she loves. After winding up her filming, Kelly packed up and jetted off to the United Kingdom. She happily announced to the world on December 22, 2022, that she was reunited with her boyfriend. Kelly posted a picture of them sporting goofy hats and wrote in the caption, “Celebrating a year of long-distance love, no more.”

A few weeks later, on February 2, 2023, The General Hospital alum took to her Instagram stories to share other wonderful news. She shared the story of how she met the man of her dreams. Kelly wrote that exactly a year ago, she started to fall in love with a man she had never met. They started talking on the phone and texted a lot. Then, on February 16, 2022, she decided to take a chance at love and flew to London to meet him. “And I’m so glad I did,” Kelly enthused.
As we can safely assume, their meeting went perfectly, and they started a long-distance relationship. While we have seen many love stories failing after a few miles got in the way, Kelly and her boyfriend are the exceptions. They have not just had miles between them but a literal ocean! Yet they managed to fall more and more in love each day. And we are so happy that our General Hospital star got the most amazing happy ending with her man! We wish them all the best for the future, and may their happily ever after never end.
5 Hot Plots ‘General Hospital’ Abruptly Dropped without Explanation – Cyrus Renault Return and More
General Hospital baddie Cyrus Renault is one of several characters whose storyline appears to be forgotten.
There are quite a few plots that seem to have been dropped recently. And it has GH fans scratching their heads. Will they ever pick back up on the ABC sudser?
#1 What’s up with Cyrus Renault on General Hospital?
A while back, Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) returned to GH. First, Cyrus was sent to a prison out West so he couldn’t wreak any more havoc in Port Chuck. But, somewhere along the way, Cyrus wound up back in Pentonville.
Now Cyrus is supposedly reformed and religious. But, of course, no one is buying it, especially Cyrus’ half-sister Laura Spencer Collins (Genie Francis).
Indeed, neither Laura nor her other brother, Martin Gray (Michael E. Knight), are convinced. Instead, they think Cyrus is as evil as ever on General Hospital.
At one point, it seemed that Cyrus Renault was still plotting to take control of Sonny Corinthos’ (Maurice Benard) territory. And it looked like Cyrus was teaming up with mob princess Jennifer Smith (Holly Gagnier).
Fans will recall that Jennifer was working with someone out West, and their endgame was to dominate Port Charles. Then, Jennifer was framed for stealing the Ice Princess diamond, recall General Hospital recaps.
And that’s the last anyone saw of her. Now, Cyrus’ focus is family, and he’s getting closer to his great-nephew Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Chavez). So, it looks as though GH switched gears. Instead of going after revenge, Cyrus Renault’s looking out for his family.
#2 Did GH Forget Selina Wu Drugged Victor?
Also, it seems that General Hospital forgot that Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy) was supposed to be drugged. Right before Holly Sutton’s (Emma Samms) exit, she paid lady gangster Selina Wu (Lydia Look) to drug Victor.
Holly and Selina Wu? That’s a twist. How does Holly know her? That is another open door for a return! #GH #HollyScorpio2022 #RobertAndHolly2022💜🤎 pic.twitter.com/5eBlIuhky5

Selina slipped the drug into Vic’s martini — but nothing ever came of it. Is the drug slow-acting? Perhaps, it hasn’t taken effect yet. There are poisonous drugs out there, such as Dimethylmercury.
And it can take months to show up. Or maybe it was a tracker to keep tabs on Vic. But it looks like General Hospital dropped the ball on the villain’s poisoning.
#3 Vic’s Endgame Dragging on GH
Speaking of Victor, fans want to know what his master plan is. The supervillain has been back in town since 2021, and it’s still unclear what he’s after. He says the Cassadine family needs to unite for what’s coming, but he’s staying quiet about the threat.
Also, we know he wants the Ice Princess, but we don’t know why. Perhaps, he wants to use it to take over the world again. But now that Laura and the rest of the General Hospital vets are on the case, it will hopefully speed things along. And soon, we may know what Vic wants.
#4 Bad Guys Coming for Sonny – Where are They?
Not long ago, mob rivals were after Sonny. Wannabe kingpins were popping up left and right. They wanted to take Sonny down and move in on his turf. And, of course, there was the threat of Cyrus Renault.
Now it seems all of his enemies have disappeared from General Hospital. And the only threat is Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and his mole Dex Heller (Evan Hofer). Of course, they still want to send Sonny to prison. But his rivals are no longer a threat.
#5 Lulu Spencer Forgotten on General Hospital
Lastly, it appears that GH has no plan of bringing Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) back. Indeed, many fans want her to wake up from her three-year-long coma and come home. Her family misses her dearly.
Plus, she has unfinished business with her ex-husband Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna). Perhaps, the powers that be are waiting for Dante to get closer to Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) before bringing Lulu back into the mix on General Hospital.
Maybe they’re waiting until a “Sante” wedding is in the works to wake Lulu up. But, as of now, there’s no return in sight for the GH fan fave. So be sure to keep watching to see if we’ll ever find out what’s next for Cyrus Renault and all the others on the ABC soap.
