General Hospital spoilers tease Neil Byrne (Joe Flanigan) may share history with Willow Tait (Katelyn MacMullen) and Dawn of Day. The Port Charles shrink said he had a history with organizations like DoD and the last time he dealt with them it didn’t work. But it could be that he’s got a link to Willow no one knows about on the ABC soap.
General Hospital Spoilers: Does Neil Byrne Have a Family Tie to Willow Tait?
GH spoilers revealed recently that Willow Tait’s background is complex. Her mom is presumably Harmony (Inga Cadranel) as she told Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard) that her mom raised her in Dawn of Day. Then, at age 20, her mom led her to join the circle of trust also, putting mom and daughter in bed with Shiloh Archer (Coby Ryan McLaughlin).
However there is no mention of a father. So, who is Willow Tait’s dad and how did he let his baby mama and child stick around a group like DoD? Some General Hospital spoilers and chatter wonder whether Neil Byrne might be Willow’s father. Since he said he a personal experience with a shady group, perhaps he lost his wife and child to Shiloh’s group.
Maybe a little wine can help heal Chase's bruised ego. It's Willow, though, who needed a distraction from Shiloh's intimidation tactics.

GH Spoilers: Willow Adopted? Questions Persist About Nina
Other GH spoilers, hint that Harmony may not be Willow’s bio-mom. Nina Reeves (Michelle Stafford) is stuck now with a fake daughter and the real one is still out there. So, it could be that Nina is Willow Tait’s biological mother and Harmony adopted her.
In fact, Harmony may have decided to adopt Willow while with Neil Byrne depending on how twisty that General Hospital spoilers take this story. It’s also important to know that Neil Byrne portrayer (Stargate fan-favorite Joe Flanigan) is supposedly on contract and will be sticking around.
General Hospital: Neil Byrne Skittish About Deprogramming Kristina for a Reason
Recently, GH spoilers had Neil Byrne advising Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) on dealing with an indoctrinated family member. It was clear he spoke from experience. He also shared with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) that his last attempt to deprogram didn’t go so well. So, he was initially hesitant to help with Kristina Corinthos (Lexi Ainsworth).
Perhaps, he was referring to his wife, Harmony. If his wife joined Dawn of Day and took their adoptive daughter with her, that would be traumatic for him. Plus, if he tried to extract her but failed, that would align with his known backstory. He told the tale of someone that dug in deeper when he tried to help. He fears for Krissy based on his personal experience.

General Hospital Spoilers: Willow and Neil Stick Around?
There are lots of GH spoilers surrounding this Dawn of Day story. It seems that Willow Tait and Neil Byrne may stick around. Chatter says Neil romances Alexis. As for Willow, Chase is hooked on her and totally supportive of her during this messy time in her life.
As for Shiloh, he’s on the fast path to concrete shoes and being shoved off Pier 54. General Hospital spoilers remind that Sonny now thinks Krissy gave Shiloh a secret about his mob business. So far, Neil Byrne and Willow Tait have never seen each other, so there’s no chance for recognition.
Plus, if she was taken from him by Harmony when she was little, maybe Neil Byrne wouldn’t realize that Willow Tait is his (possibly) adoptive daughter. Then again, GH could take this storyline another direction now that Nina Reeves may take a short break for the actress swap. Watch ABC daytime to see what’s next.
