Megan Ward is taping her final scenes at General Hospital. After being dropped to recurring status, Megan Ward saw less and less screen time although her fan favorite romance with Coleman and ties to front burner characters Olivia, Sonny, and Johnny as well as her position as editor of Crimson where Maxie and Lulu toil away kept her on the canvas.
The exact details of Kate's departure are not known, but after a scandal at Crimson Jax is forced to relieve her of her position as editor-in-chief. She has few friends now, but by the time she exits in October she will be left with no one. Kate's exit is said to be explosive. Rumor has it that her departure will pave the way for Brenda to take over the reigns at Crimson.
