‘General Hospital’: Neil Byrne Murdered – Was Alexis the Real Target on ‘GH’?

General Hospital spoilers suspect Neil Byrne (Joe Flanigan) may have been murdered. Neil’s death was so abrupt that it looks like there may be more behind it on GH. Soon, the real reason for his death may shock everyone on the ABC sudser and it might be that Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) was the real target.

Neil Byrne Dead – Kendra to Blame on General Hospital?

General Hospital spoilers wonder if Kendra Lennon (Michelle Argyris) has come back to haunt Alexis Davis. Remember, Kendra wanted Alexis dead to avenge the death of her brother Kiefer Bauer (Christian Alexander). Kendra tried to kill Alexis with rat poison but that didn’t work.

So, Kendra may have concocted another plan before she died while trying to kill Alexis. Perhaps, the lotion Alexis rubbed on Neil Byrne was one she’d never opened. It might have been planted by Kendra. So, by rubbing it onto Neil’s feet, the drug could seep in as he slept, tease General Hospital spoilers.

Cyrus Needs Neil Out of the way on GH?

Another thought is that Neil Byrne may be a victim of Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober). No doubt, Cyrus is bent on taking over the town including General Hospital. He already got rid of Monica Quartermaine (Leslie Charleson) and Bobbie Spencer (Jacklyn Zeman).

So, maybe Neil Byrne had some info on Cyrus that we’ll find out about later. Although Neil was no longer on staff at General Hospital, he still had ties there that might have caused problems for Cyrus. So, the mob man might’ve felt he needed to get rid of Neil Byrne.

Was Alexis the Real Target on General Hospital?

Alternate General Hospital spoilers suggest Alexis might be who Cyrus targeted – if he’s the culprit. The lotion might have been a drugged-up gift meant for Alexis. But Neil Byrne wound up dying from it instead. So, why would Cyrus take aim at Alexis only to accidentally strike Neil?

Cyrus looks for any chance to weaken Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) on General Hospital. And since she’s one of Sonny’s baby mamas, it would make sense. Already, Sonny’s distracted over his dying dad and Cyrus is taking advantage there too. So, making a move on Alexis is logical for Cyrus.

But, by killing Neil Byrne instead, it might put Sonny on high alert to safeguard Alexis, hint General Hospital spoilers. Soon, GH spoilers promise Alexis is in disbelief when she learns more about the autopsy and drugs in his system. Of course, she won’t believe Neil Byrne was on drugs.

So, she might get suspicious and push for an investigation to find out who killed Neil. Don’t miss a moment of GH to find out the reason for Neil Byrne’s death on ABC daytime.
