After taking the summer off from General Hospital, Genie Francis will be making her way back to the ABC soap very soon. Fans will recall that Laura was last seen on Monday, August 23, after Martin alerted his sister that they were in trouble, due to their brother Cyrus and the revenge he vowed to seek on many in Port Charles.

“She was on vacation for several months. Now, Laura will have her work cut out for her as the head of a very big family,” the General Hospital writers shared with then went on to further explain, “But before she can work on putting them and their lives back together, she has to make it back to Port Charles alive. And that means eluding the Cyrus murder engine.”

That’s the key, fans, “make it back alive,” and even though Cyrus is currently sitting in a prison cell, we all know that his reach stretches far. “She’s going to have to elude his assassination attempts while trying to keep her hapless brother, Martin, safe as well.”

It’s anyone’s guess as to what the siblings will come up against in the face of danger but one thing is for sure, there’s never a dull moment when Cyrus is involved. And her family that is currently awaiting her homecoming, well, they could surely be sitting ducks themselves.
