General Hospital (GH) spoilers reveal that Jeff Kober is OUT as Cyrus Renault, so this powerful villain was shipped off with a weak exit. During Kober’s run on the ABC soap, Cyrus became quite a force to be reckoned with. He seemed like a baddie worthy of a bigger farewell than getting shot in the leg and sent to a maximum-security penitentiary.
Some of Cyrus’ enemies have paraded through his hospital room gloating about this upper hand, but Cyrus could still come roaring back down the road. This storyline may have run its course, but Cyrus doesn’t seem content to let that be the end.
Cyrus survived the hostage mess he created, so he could always return for revenge sooner or later. Even a maximum-security facility may not be enough to contain Cyrus if he plots hard enough and makes new connections to escape.
Cyrus is being sent to the Midwest so that he won’t have his old associates nearby to rely on, but he’s a man who knows how to assemble an army and get things done.
Cyrus also offered some rather ominous parting words to Laura Collins (Genie Francis) about how he’d gotten in her head.
Cyrus suggested there was a darkness in Laura as well and expected to see some changes by the next time they crossed paths. He hoped Laura would embrace some of the “fine qualities” they have in common, so the stage may be set for Cyrus to pop up again at some point.
Regardless, Jeff Kober is a talented performer who really gave his all. Cyrus Renault has been an intriguing villain for the show, even if his lackluster exit left a bit to be desired.
Everything was wrapped up a bit too neat and tidy with Cyrus looking pretty pathetic.
On the bright side, this opens the door for a new GH villain to take charge in the meantime. It’s always fun when soaps shake things up, so we’ll look forward to the next baddie who’ll run the show in Port Charles.
