Like a bad penny, Cyrus just keeps turning up! Jeff Kober has returned to GENERAL HOSPITAL for another stint, and he made his unexpected appearance at the cliffhanger of the June 29 episode. As for how long he’s going to be around or what trouble he’s going to cause this time, that’s anybody’s guess!
Kober made his daytime debut when he joined the cast of GH in the role of the villainous Cyrus Renault in February 2020. Although initially meant to be a short-term role, it soon expanded and Cyrus was revealed to be the brother of legacy character Laura Webber. Although Cyrus was shipped off to prison in June 2021, he has continued to make the occasional appearance in the years that have followed.
The last viewers saw Cyrus, he was helping to protect Spencer when he was serving time in Pentonville. During his appearances behind bars, Cyrus has been quoting scripture and saying that he’s a changed man now that he’s found religion. Of course, he’s clearly still capable of turning dark when necessary, like planting a shiv on another inmate who threatened Spencer so he’d be sent to solitary.
Now that Drew is headed to prison for a stretch, he’s also going to encounter Cyrus. In fact, the inmate informed a guard that they should prepare for Drew’s imminent arrival and referred to the guy as a “friend.” Since fans know that’s certainly not true, everyone is speculating about what Cyrus might have in mind for Drew during his time behind bars.
And while Drew will likely be let out early for good behavior (or if Zeke can manage to strike a new deal to get his sentence reduced), how much longer will Cyrus remain locked up? You’ll just have to stay tuned to find out!
