General Hospital (GH) spoilers reveal that Martin Gray (Michael E. Knight) and Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) are linked, but this isn’t a typical connection. When Martin approached Cyrus at the end of the December 1 episode, he held his own against the baddie.
Martin looked pretty menacing himself and certainly didn’t seem like someone who lets Cyrus push him around. Martin wondered if in “all these years,” Cyrus had ever known him to wait to be called upon.
That tells us a couple of things: 1) that Martin and Cyrus go way back and 2) that Martin isn’t just another one of Cyrus’ blackmailed lackeys. Martin seems more like an equal or at least someone who doesn’t really let Cyrus control him.
That brings us to another piece of the puzzle that GH writers just offered. After Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner) and Jordan Ashford (Briana Nicole Henry) took a trip to that medical supply company in Mexico City, they were able to trace a patient with the name “Gray” to Cyrus.
Of course, that’s particularly interesting due to this newly revealed Martin and Cyrus link. With all this in mind, it seems Cyrus’ weak spot is someone connected to Martin as well. Does that mean some family ties are involved here? Could Martin be Cyrus’ brother or another relative?
That’s certainly an option to consider, especially since Martin interacted with Cyrus in almost a sibling rivalry kind of way. It’s possible this “Gray” patient is a parent or another sibling. We should also dig a bit further back into GH history and see how this “Gray” connection might relate to some other characters.
Gordon Gray was Laura’s biological father, so that’s a biggie. It doesn’t seem like a coincidence that Cyrus is linked to a patient with the same name as Laura’s bio dad. Could Laura herself be biologically related to Cyrus and Martin?
There’s one more possibility to consider, so we’ll mention it. Back in the early 1980s, a man named David Gray confused Laura Spencer and Laura Templeton during a kidnapping plot. The latter Laura was Jackie Templeton’s (Kim Delaney) sister – and Jackie recently came back on the scene for an exposé on Cyrus.
Jackie exchanged a strange look with Cyrus at the pub, which made it seem like this was awfully personal. It’s worth mentioning that Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary) went after deadly revenge on David Gray, so General Hospital spoilers say there are some interesting things to ponder.
We wouldn’t get too hung up on the “Gray” versus “Grey” debate that seems to be on social media right now. That’s a minor detail that will differ depending on what your source is.
On Michael E. Knight’s IMDb page, he’s actually listed as Martin Gray on some episodes and Martin Grey on others. We’d say any Gray goes for all the above Grays since GH writers will make the story work no matter what.
