How long has Shiloh been on General Hospital? What’s that you say? Only a few months? Wow. It feels like he’s been in Port Charles forever. Everyone is talking about him — for better or for worse.
But, you know what it means when everyone on the canvas is talking about one particular character. They’re either Sonny (Maurice Benard), Carly (Laura Wright), or Jason (Steve Burton) — or they’re setting up a Who Shot Shiloh (Coby Ryan MacLaughlin) story?
Is the cult leader doomed to bit the dust…maybe via a bullet, maybe something else? What almost 4,000 viewers had to say:
Oh, the dude is doomed, 86% of you predict with confidence. So many people have a motive. Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth). Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn). Sam (Kelly Monaco). Not to mention the aforementioned Sonny, Carly, and Jason.
Sure, in the end, it will probably prove to be another newbie like Willow (Katelyn McCullough) or Chase (Josh Swickard). Or, even worse, one of the random cult members wafting about Dawn of Day.
But his murder will open multiple possibilities for all of the above to lurk, look guilty, stammer, and tell lies about things they absolutely don’t need to tell lies about for weeks.
Which will feel like months. Which, like how long Shiloh has been on the show, will feel like years. And then it will be forgotten and never mentioned again.
Live And Let Live
Nah, 24% dismiss, he’s not worth it. If Shiloh is killed, who will care? Sure, Kristina might mope. But, how will we tell that from her usual moping?
And Willow might beat her breast a bit, but then the truth will come out above Wiley, and she’ll have something else to sniffle about.
Soap characters are only worth killing if there is someone around to notice. Otherwise, they can just slink away. Like Griffin (Matt Cohen)…
