General Hospital (GH) spoilers reveal that fans are still buzzing about the big reveal of Austin Gatlin-Holt (Roger Howarth) and Mason Gatlin’s (Nathanyael Grey) boss, which happened in the August 22 episode.
After a shower, shave and a haircut, Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) was all spiffy and ready for his meeting with Austin, who’s been ordered to deliver the flash drive that Betty Rutherford (Ella Lentini) handed over.
It’s clear that Cyrus is the one running things from behind prison walls, so that’s one mystery solved!
However, this also opens the door to a new mystery since Austin and Mason’s family is such a big part of Cyrus’ organization.
Could the show change Austin’s paternity and make him Cyrus’ biological son?
It wouldn’t be surprising since this show loves to do long-lost children storylines.
Plus, Cyrus’ makeover could back up the idea that they wanted him to look a bit more like Austin before they revealed their father-son connection.
Of course, Austin is believed to be the son of the Jimmy Lee Holt (Steve Bond) and Charity Gatlin (Gloria Carlin), but there’s always some wiggle room in stories like this.
GH writers would usually rather deliver an exciting twist than stick to history, so maybe they’re building toward another shocker.
If Cyrus is Austin’s bio dad, that could add a whole new layer to all the drama.
Austin is a combination of frustrated and fearful when it comes to Cyrus, who always enjoys playing mind games and delivering threats.
Adding a family link would only make things even creepier and more strained.
Cyrus might know more about Austin than even Austin himself knows if he’s the only one in the loop on the doc’s true paternity.
It might be interesting if Cyrus is sitting on that secret, which he could ultimately reveal when the time is right.
Regardless, many fans on social media have been speculating about this intriguing father-son possibility.
It sounds like the kind of twist that’d be right up the show’s alley, so maybe Austin will be revealed as Cyrus’ son at some point.
General Hospital spoilers say Cyrus and Austin’s relationship could get even weirder if he turns out to be Austin’s bio dad in addition to his boss, so stick with us for updates on any stunning father news.
