‘General Hospital’ Comings & Goings: Julian Exits & Lulu Dies – Plus More Cast Cuts Ahead

General Hospital comings and goings suggest Julian Jerome‘s (William deVry) exit may be fiery, and Lulu Spencer‘s (Emme Rylan) departure may be a blast. Plus, there are just the first of several more cast cuts predicted on the ABC soap opera. Take a look at some leaked info about these two exits and others ahead.

General Hospital Comings and Goings: Julian Jerome Fiery Exit Redeems Him?

When word leaked that GH was cutting Julian Jerome, the rumor mill went into high gear. This week, drunk Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) blamed him for her alcohol addiction and reminded him he tried to kill her. So, they churned up the knife to the throat scene with Julian to remind the audience – and then there’s a redemption scenario.

General Hospital spoilers predict Julian Jerome “dies” saving Alexis’ life when she’s boozing. You can see a leaked behind-the-scenes photo below of the burned-out hull of The Floating Rib. It seems likely the mob war sparks a fire there – and Alexis is boozing at the bar. Remember, Julian’s banned Charlie’s Pub staff from serving her anymore.

So, with Alexis drinking at the Rib and Julian Jerome worried, the fire makes sense as his exit – and redemption. General Hospital comings and goings hint Julian rushes into the burning building to save Alexis, but it costs him his life. That should redeem him in case GH ever brings back Julian Jerome. Wait to see if he’s a crispy critter soon.

GH Spoilers: Lulu Spencer Taken Out by Blast?

For Lulu Spencer, there’s another question of how General Hospital spoilers exit her. Will she leave town or die in the mob melee coming soon? Dante Falconeri’s (Dominic Zamprogna) back, but he might not stay. So, his return might have been for her exit arc… And now it looks like Lulu’s missing, presumed dead.

Now on General Hospital, Lulu Spencer’s in an awkward spot with her new man moving in while Dante just returned. All Lulu wanted was Dante back in her arms, but he divorced her and said he’d never return. So, it could be that Lulu leaves town with Dante – and the actors both exit. We’ve heard even more cuts are coming, so Dom leaving too makes sense. But her death may be the reason.

Then again, General Hospital could also kill off Lulu. There’s some chatter about a recast – but GH fans love Emme. And the greater issue, reportedly, is that the ABC sudser can’t afford its bloated cast with ad revenue down from the lockdown. Plus, ratings are plummeting. So, Lulu Spencer’s exit and Julian Jerome’s might be just two of many ahead.

Who Else is Leaving General Hospital – Casting Bloodbath Ahead?

GH spoilers wonder who else exits given the talk of drastic cast cuts. One person you might not notice is reportedly already cut from the soap with no announcement. Genie Francis is reportedly done on contract as Laura Spencer, says one backstage source. Soon, Laura is back in Port Chuck but her return might be for Lulu’s exit. We’ll update you when we know more.

Other cast cuts rumored ahead on General Hospital include Sasha Gilmore (Sophia Mattsson). Our insider at ABC said a main character would die from Cyrus Renault’s (Jeff Kober) tainted drugs. The only front-burner character doping right now is Sasha. She’s already looking rough, so she’s one to watch to see if she falls prey to bad dope in Port Chuck.

General Hospital fans suggested characters they would like to see love. But word has it that Frank Valentini’s got his favorites, and they’ll stay whether fans like them or not. And that includes keeping those faves happy. So, the source says there are lots more cuts to come, and the exits of Julian Jerome, Lulu Spencer, and others is only wave one of many.
