General Hospital spoilers tease that Julian Jerome (William DeVry) will catch the attention of an unwelcome source in an upcoming episode of GH; might it be the new mobster in town, Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober)?
GH Spoilers: Julian Jerome Has Been Out Of The Mob Business For A Long Time But Cyrus Renault May Want The Jerome Territory
Julian, and his sister Ava Jerome (Maura West) has been out of the mob business for a long time, but that doesn’t mean that Renault may not have heard of the Jeromes and think that they still have a territory that he can intercept! Longtime General Hospital viewers will recall that the Jerome family in the late 1980s and early 1990s had been in competition with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) for Frank Smith’s (Joe Cortese) territory, as well as being in competition with Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan) who was tangled up in mob business as well. Julian faked his death and went into witness protection for 23 years, returning in 2013 as Derek Wells, the head of a prosperous media company.
But he and Ava were really in town to take back Sonny’s territory, and even had an enforcer named Carlos Rivera (Jeffery Vincent Parise) to do their dirty work. It was also Julian that ran the online gambling site that got Morgan Corinthos (Bryan Craig) caught up in it and owing a lot of money. However, in more recent years both Ava and Julian have gradually slipped away from the mob life, Ava running a very successful and prosperous art gallery, and Julian running a bar called Charlie’s Pub and becoming a successful business owner. So, there really isn’t a “territory” as such anymore that Renault could want to take over. However, that doesn’t mean that Julian or Ava would want to get all mobbed up again and Julian wouldn’t want to funnel drugs through his pub, and since it’s near the waterfront, that might be exactly what Renault has in mind!

Cyrus Renault Does His Homework, And Likely Knows That Julian Jerome And Sonny Corinthos Are Frenemies
Julian and Sonny don’t like each other but they do tolerate each other and on occasion will help each other out, depending on what the issue is, so they could be considered “frenemies” of a sort. Cyrus makes it his business to know this, and knowing that Sonny and Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) have been trying to retaliate, and that Julian and Sonny aren’t exactly allies, he might try to get Julian to either join with him against Sonny, or he may try to take over Julian’s territory as well as Sonny’s – but Julian doesn’t have a “territory” and hasn’t in many years. Julian won’t be interested in anything that Renault has to offer.
Julian can take care of himself if need be, however – and he has some pretty good ideas what he will do if he finds any of Renault’s henchmen parked outside his door, or Renault himself for that matter, if he can distract him long enough to get him away from his car! Julian doesn’t want drugs in the neighborhood taking down his business, or finding dead bodies instead of dead rats around his pub! It’s bad enough that the Charles Street neighborhood has been one of the poorer parts of town in the first place, and he doesn’t want his friends and neighbors diminished any further by Cyrus and his ilk hanging around!
