General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) is now stuck in a coma – and that could be the case for quite some time. Although Rylan hasn’t been willing to comment on story-related matters, she did indicate it wasn’t her choice to leave GH.
Even so, Rylan’s making the best of a bad situation and is on an exciting road trip with her family. They’ll be traveling all over the place and having some fun, so Rylan won’t be back in LA to film anytime soon.
Of course, that’s fine since Lucas Jones (Matt Trudeau) suggested Lulu’s recovery would be a lengthy one. Lucas can’t guarantee that Lulu will ever wake up, though it’s obvious she will someday. If GH wanted Lulu to be gone for good, they would’ve just killed her off.
Instead, General Hospital is just putting Lulu on ice and resting the character for now. When the time is right, Lulu can awaken and catch up on everything she’s missed – and it’ll no doubt be a lot! The question is: Who will be playing Lulu when she wakes up from her coma?
That’s a tough answer to nail down just yet. General Hospital can’t even know for sure since Lulu could be out of the picture for months or even years. They can’t be certain that Rylan will want to return or that she’ll be free when the time comes.
However, Rylan kept it classy when it came to her social media account following her firing. Rylan was smart about not burning any bridges – and she clearly loves the cast and crew at GH. If Rylan was offered the chance to return somewhere down the line, it seems likely she would take it.
However, there are other options if General Hospital decides they want to take things in another direction. Although Rylan put her own spin on Lulu and gained plenty of fans in the role, some viewers feel like Julie Marie Berman was the “real” Lulu.
There are definitely some GH watchers that never quite embraced Rylan in the part and still want Berman back. It’s possible Lulu will be played by Berman when she wakes up – that is if GH can work it out and that’s what they have in mind.
Then again, Matt Trudeau recently debuted as a brand-new Lucas. General Hospital could go for a fresh face if Rylan and Berman aren’t available to play Lulu down the road. Regardless, Lulu’s coma leaves her ready and waiting for wherever GH wants to put her back in the action.
