General Hospital Spoilers: Jane Elliot Exits GH – Final Tracy Quartermaine Storyline Revealed

General Hospital Spoilers: Jane Elliot Exits GH – Final Tracy Quartermaine Storyline Revealed

General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Jane Elliot has one foot out the door at GH and Tracy Quartermaine’s final story is about to play out before the actress retires from the ABC soap for good. Here’s what we know and what to expect.

In April 2016, Jane Elliot gave an interview to TV Insider and made it clear she would not renew her contract with GH when it ends in 2017. She told the website “I’m ready to hang up my pantyhose” adding that “As far as acting goes, I’m full. I am satiated.”

Now a new blind item is circulating on social media that is likely about Jane’s exit as Tracy Q. It says a soap is creating an “exit arc” for a veteran that won’t renew their contract in the Spring. All that aligns to Jane Elliot and her last story will be epic.

What’s a fitting end for a powerhouse actress that started on GH in 1978 and will have nearly 40 years on the soap when she leaves this year? Saving the hospital, of course. Tracy has been intimately involved with the hospital since she started the show.

Most think of her as the tough lady boss at ELQ, but with her beloved brother Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon) and frenemy/sister-in-law Monica Quartermaine (Leslie Charleson) so heavily involved at GH, it’s a major part of Tracy’s history.

Tracy has been more involved with the hospital building up to her final arc where she saves the hospital. Will they kill off the outspoken Q? Doesn’t seem likely, but you never know. Maybe they’ll retire her to the Caribbean to harass cabana boys.

This hasn’t been spelled out yet in terms of plot, but Olivia Jerome (Tonja Walker) is the brains behind the plan to turn GH into high-price condos. It’s not that Port Charles needs more real estate, but Olivia has a grudge against the hospital.

She “died” there back in the early 90s and the GH staff didn’t save Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan) but did save Julian Jerome (William deVry) and Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) so she has a long list of imagined grievances with GH.

Olivia has ordered Julian to work with the board member to try and sell off the hospital. Paul Hornsby’s (Richard Burgi) killing spree helped Olivia but doesn’t seem to be her handiwork. The hospital was shut down and close to selling then Paul was caught.

Worst of all, it was Olivia’s mortal enemy Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) that nabbed Paul which saved the hospital. Olivia will ramp up her plans soon to destroy GH and we already know it’s teetering on the brink of financial collapse.

That’s why Tracy brought Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig) in to help save GH. Hayden is like an aggravating daughter to Tracy and she’ll be central to Tracy’s final story. These two will work hard and will ultimately save the hospital.

But once that bit of business is taken care of, Tracy will be done in Port Charles. Whether she’ll walk into the foggy evening like was done with Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary) or go out in a violent blaze of glory isn’t known.

Wouldn’t it be great if Luke came to get her and he and his Spanky Buns rode off into the sunset together? That would be an amazing farewell to Tracy and a much better ending than the one we got with Luke in Summer 2015.

Will you be sad to see Tracy go? Do you hope she gets a happy ending with Luke after saving the hospital? Will you miss Jane Elliot’s legacy character? Share your comments below and tune into CDL often for the latest General Hospital spoilers and updates.

  • GH Watcher

    Would be perfect for Luke to return and sweep his Spanky away with him. I will miss her she is truly a daytime treasure. Happy retirement Janey you deserve it !!!!!!

  • Violet Lemm

    Absolutely love this lady. The presence alone, when she walks into a room, the way she speaks or looks at someone. I guess I can stand losing her, as long as it’s not sad. I am so sorry to say, before GH and as many soaps as I’ve watched over the years, I don’t remember ever seeing her. What a loss. Maybe I can go on utube and find something else she was in, to see her other work.

  • lovethosedimples

    I hate to see this lady go, but to have her walk off into the sunset hand in hand with Luke would be a fitting end to her dynamic run on GH. If this is a fact, I wish this actress nothing but love and peace!

  • Linda Williams

    Please don’t let Tracey leave. Monica is the only Q left they rarely show her and I cant deal with that boring ass Dylan. Please make Spanky stay.

  • Linda Williams

    Yes it would.

  • Laura Alexina Parker

    I have been watching Jane Elliot for most of my life as Tracy Quartermain. will be missed dearly. But I do understand wanting to retire. But you will always be Mrs. Quatrmain on GH NO ONE CAN REPLACE JANE ELLIOT EEEEEVEEEERRRR.

  • Laura Holt

    I can’t wish to deny Jane a well deserved retirement, but I will miss her dearly. Make it an awesome send off! Reunited with Luke would be grand.

  • Maria Morin

    Jane you will be missed dearly….I would I’ve if Luke came back to get his Spanky……

  • Cheryl

    Hoping She changes her mind. But Luke coming back for her would be a great end

  • Miki

    Will absolutely miss Tracy Quartermaine (Jane Elliot)! Great actress! Wish her the best and hope she makes an occasional “drop in” in the future – would love if Luke came back to whisk Tracy away! ????

  • Jill Pearson

    Oh this is terrible news indeed. Without Tracy, GH is going to be just another soap. And her wardrobe! I lust after it daily. I will miss Tracy’s intellect and humor.

    Jane Elliott is such an amazing actress! But I suppose she deserves a break. I wish her well; she will be missed! ?

  • Charles Ray

    She will be truly missed.

  • Laura Champlain

    This story makes me truly sad,I love Jane and she’s such a powerhouse on the show I was hoping to get a lot more scenes between her & Genie Francis,they were great together in the scenes they’ve had since AG left #GH. I can’t believe she’d retire because theirs so much of her that makes up the show and she would be such a loss in my opinion theirs hardly any Quartermains left I’m just greatly disappointed guess she to is feeling left with not much storyline anymore out vets who I’d rather watch then any of these newbies or the same redundant characters! Where the heck are Laura*Kevin one of our favorite couples? Why aren’t their talents being used they have so much chemistry! So sick of Sonny,Carly,Liz,Franco,Jason,Sam,Nell,Valentin,Anna,Lulu,Alexis,Julian who get all the scenes & their all on almost everyday or every other day. Whoever are the writers for Laura*sure have dropped the ball writing for them as their barely ever on. So disappointed in this show!

  • Cheese

    Oh, come on, people. Jane Elliot turned 70 in January. Stop begging her to stay. Let her retire in peace.
