Ever since Kim and Oscar showed up on General Hospital, fans have suspected that the Nero family harbored a secret. (What’s the point of being on a soap if you don’t?)
When it was revealed that Oscar (Garren Stitt) was Drew’s (Billy Miller) son, we thought the mystery had been solved. But now another one rears its head – Oscar is dying!
It seems the teen has had a brain tumor for years that Mama Kim (Tamra Braun) declined to let him in on. Kim told Oscar he had low blood sugar.
The tumor has no cure. Oscar is doomed. Or is he? Ever since GH’s unbearably tear-jerking BJ/Maxie heart transplant storyline, soaps have gotten a lot more brazen about killing off kids – right Days of Our Lives Zach? The Young and the Restless’ Delia?
Even GH’s Jake spent a couple of years presumed gone. Would they go there again with Oscar? Here’s how over 4,000 viewers expect it to go down.
Not gonna happen, 79% brazenly predict. You can’t kill off a boy who is so important to the canvas. Oscar is a Quartermaine! And he’s Joss’s (Eden McCoy) first love. It would be too sad to cut off a young man in his prime like that.
Plus, you know Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) would find some way to make it all about themselves. And nobody wants that.
Who Will Live and Who Will Die?
Another 12% of you are hedging your bets, putting your money on “maybe” as the correct answer. Oscar is terminally ill, sure. But considering how many folks have come back from the dead in Port Charles, what’s another miracle or two?
And a tiny 8% are ready to watch Oscar shuffle off his mortal coil, the sooner the better. You never liked him or Kim. But, you know it will still be a heartbreaking story.
