His demise has marked the end of Victor’s reign of terror, as well as, Charles Shaughnessy’s time on General Hospital. Or has it really? Victor may have died in the explosion, but the real question here is, will he REMAIN dead? Keep reading TV Season & Spoilers to find out what Charles has to say about it!
Charles Shaughnessy Sheds Light On Victor’s Future On General Hospital
General Hospital spoilers had been teasing Victor’s death for a long time before it actually played out on the screen. GH legend Charles Shaughnessy himself had tweeted beforehand about what a great send-off the writers were writing for the legacy villain. All of that combined made us believe that Victor Cassadine would definitely die in the climax of the pathogen storyline. Thus, we ate it up like a piece of cake, when they served us a very, very dead-looking Victor in a boy bag!
But Charles’ latest chat with Soap Opera Digest is making us question everything we saw unfold on General Hospital. The phenomenal actor teased that things may actually not be as they seem right now. He insisted that he is ” not convinced Victor is completely gone.” Did he just drop a hint about an epic comeback for the legacy villain? The Cassadine’s surely know how to rise back from death! Perhaps, Victor pulled some strings to fake his death to facilitate an easy escape.
If the PC residents believe him to be dead, no one will come looking for him while he hibernates and cooks up another evil recipe for disaster at General Hospital. However, Charles was only in the mood for teasing and not really spilling the tea. Thus, he held back from revealing too much. To add to the mystery, he added that Victor might even return as a ghost. That is if he really is dead! But all in all, Charles did leave the possibility of his return open! However, he did clarify that the return might not happen anytime soon, as he is taking a sabbatical from the show!
This new twist definitely has us excited! Charles Shaugnessy is a phenomenal actor! Moreover, Victor Cassadine probably still has more tricks in his hat to pull on General Hospital. So, we are totally on board with this evil rising back from the dead! What about you? Tell us in the comments. Meanwhile, stay tuned to General Hospital to see what happens next in Port Charles.
