General Hospital Spoilers: Cyrus Becomes Drew’s Ally, But Was It All A Setup?

General Hospital Spoilers reveal Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) has entered the picture, and things are about to get complicated. While Cyrus seems to be interested in befriending Drew Cain (Cameron Mathison) and offering him protection, there are hints that he may have his own agenda.

There is a rumour A number of prisoners at Pentonville will jump Drew, putting him in danger and maybe earning him an extended stay at General Hospital where Carly Spencer (Laura Wright) can at least hold the man’s hand. Fortunately, Drew has a shank from his friend Cyrus that should allow him to defend himself. The shank was deftly concealed in a Bible, which is appropriate given the persona Cyrus keeps insisting he has developed into.

A Gift with a Meaning

Despite Cyrus’ reputation, he gave Drew a gift that seemed innocent enough: a Bible. However, upon closer inspection, Drew found a shank hidden inside the pages. At the time, Drew likely wondered whether Cyrus’ gift of protection was actually a warning to watch his back, as though he was promising an attack. But perhaps Cyrus already knew there were others with designs on getting to Drew.

GH Spoilers Hint Carly is Kept in the Dark

Trouble will soon find Drew in jail, and it won’t take long. There are rumours that he will shortly be attacked by many prisoners, leaving him bloodied and bruised. With the shank Cyrus has given him, he will be able to repel them. Drew could see that if he hadn’t had that useful equipment, he might not have made it through the assault. This insight might give Cyrus’ gift a fresh perspective and prompt Drew to consider his motivations.

It’s likely that Laura would caution Drew about her brother, but she’s out of the country right now and no one is going to make any concessions for an inmate to get ahold of the Mayor while she’s in Russia. Carly would probably have any opinion about Drew associating with Cyrus, but he may choose not to loop her in on who he has or hasn’t been involved with behind bars. However, that doesn’t mean he won’t need her ex-husband’s help.

Is Sonny an Ally?

Many questions have been raised by Cyrus’ interest in Drew. Is he honestly attempting to help Drew or is he positioning Drew for something evil? There are various options to think about. It comes as no surprise that Cyrus still has a desire to meet Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and that he wants to re-enter his sister’s inner circle. It’s probable that his covert attack on Drew was intended to force Drew to seek out Sonny for protection, setting off a conflict over the turf of the cell block.

This is Cyrus’ area and Sonny might be wise to be careful about who he offers his help to from the outside. Something tells us this won’t be the last attack on Drew either.
