General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Hayley Erin will leave the role of Kiki Jerome behind. Daytime Confidential’s report points to her departure, so we should go ahead and start thinking about an exit strategy. How will GH deal with this loss? If they choose not to recast, there aren’t very many exit stories to choose from. Let’s consider what Kiki’s final days on the show might look like.
The first departure strategy is simple enough. Kiki could be accepted in another medical program or even find a new career path elsewhere. She could end up leaving Port Charles – and her mess of a mother. Things have been awfully tense between Ava (Maura West) and Kiki lately. Since Kiki and Griffin (Matt Cohen) are inching toward a romance, that should make the situation even worse.
As Ava’s revenge revs up, Kiki could ultimately decide she’s sick of all this drama. She might seek a fresh start somewhere else. Who knows? Maybe there’s even a chance Kiki and Dillon (Robert Palmer Watkins) will reunite. Dillon was a jerk toward the end, but people change! Kiki was clearly in love with him, so it’d be nice if they could live happily ever after offscreen.
Kiki tends to be on the right side of the law, so GH probably wouldn’t write a prison exit. There’s no reason to think Kiki would land behind bars for anything. Besides, they just did that exit with Nelle (Chloe Lanier). Unlike Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), Kiki also can’t be sent off on some secret mission. If they don’t bring on a recast or let Kiki leave town, the only other option is death.
Of course, there are a couple categories to choose from. Deaths can always be reversed on a soap, but it’s easier with a presumed one. Still, General Hospital may go for the shock of a gruesome onscreen demise. Will Kiki be killed off? Perhaps Ava’s vengeful plan will go one step too far. If Ava somehow leads to a deadly outcome, that’d bring some great Emmy reel material for Maura West.
Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) could also use a murder victim. Since they’ve reintroduced this cruel character, he pretty much has to kill someone during this stint. GH fans need to know he means business!
Ryan could even kill more than one character, so he’d better get started. Maybe Kiki will become Ryan’s prey. She works at GH along with “Kevin,” which could lead to a startling discovery. Will Kiki uncover Ryan’s secret and put herself in his deadly path?
One way or another, GH viewers will have to say goodbye to Kiki. General Hospital spoilers state that her exit will bring some chaos, so we’ll give you updates as other news comes in.
