This week on "General Hospital" they made it appear that Julian Jerome was dead, but as everyone knows if there isn't a body, then they probably aren't really dead. Honestly, even if there is a body, that doesn't mean anything in soap opera land. Now the fans are curious if he is really dead or if he will be returning soon. Juliane is a big staple on the show, but of course, it could also go on without him.

Details on if Julian is alive start to be revealed

As of right now, there hasn't been anything revealed about William Devry leaving the show.

There have been a few rumors, but that is always the case. Now it sounds like Julian will be gone for a little bit, but he will allegedly be returning during May sweeps. William does have some other projects going on, but just having a small break from the show might be what he needs.

This week Alexis will go and check out the safe deposit box that Julian told her to stay out of unless he was dead or missing. There will be a really long letter in it that explains what has been going on. This will give her some huge clues. Liv has been controlling him for a long time, and a lot is going to come out about it.

The fans would be disappointed if Wiliam deVry actually left the show, but for now it just doesn't look like that is the case.

Everyone is just going to have to wait and see, but if he doesn't show up in May sweeps it will be totally shocking.

In January, it was revealed that Wiliam deVry's contract was up for renewal. That does make it where if he was going to leave they are in the perfect spot to do it now. At the time, he still had about six months left on the show and wouldn't admit if he was going to stick around or not.

They could always decide to let Julian live and replace William with a new actor. It wouldn't be the first time.
