General Hospital spoilers – Neil Byrne was a bad boy apparently

Fans were shocked when Neil Byrne turned up dead in his lover Alexis Davis’ (Nancy Lee Grahn) bed. This was a twist no one saw coming and while it was deliciously dramatic and soapy, fans wish they could eat their cake and have it too. Can’t we just know that Neil is a closet drug addict and still have him roaming around Port Charles?

After all, these two moved mountains to get to where they were. Which was unemployed, kicked out of their professions for bad conduct and lying. So, was their future really all that rosy?

The ball would now seems to be in the court of TPTB. They have reversed decisions to kick off characters before, as when they announced that Rebecca Herbst was being let go. The fan backlash was so swift and torrid that they backed up their knuckleheaded decision and Liz Webber remains on the show years later.

Will the same happen to Neil Byrne? You can’t compare a core character like Liz, who has been on for decades, with Neil, but anything can happen in daytime.

    Would like to see Neil back on GH, but not another twin story line please. If this has to occur in order to bring the character back to canvas, allow the twin to have been impersonating his brother and is the twin that died. After all, this story line has been used for Ryan over and over again, so why not apply the same theory to a Neil story line???

      Neil should come back. Tell the truth about drugs and who was framing him….he and Alexis should be together. They were great
      And she was happy
      We need some happy times. Enough already
      Please fix the sad stuff
