We have sad news to report, dear Soap Cities readers, about Robert Palmer Watkins.
Bye, Bye, Dillon Q!
Daytime Confidential’s Jamey Giddens is reporting fan fave Robert Palmer Watkins has been fired from his role on General Hospital as Dillon Quartermaine! He hears the actor feels “blindsided” by his dismissal.
We do too–don’t you, dear readers?
Apparently, our beloved RPW may have hinted at his GH departure earlier this week on Twitter:

One of the Last Quartermaines Exits
RPW’s Dillon Quartermaine arrived on the Port Charles scene in 2015 after being absent on the canvas for several years. The role was previously played by The Bold and the Beautiful‘s Scott Clifton. While Watkins was initially paired with Emme Rylan’s Lulu Spencer and her cousin Valerie Spencer (Brytni Sarpy) his character gained traction with his coupling with Kiki Jerome (Hayley Erin), aka #Killon.
Watkins is one of the last few Quartermaines remaining on the canvas, along with Aunt Monica (Leslie Charles), his brother Ned (Wally Kurth), cousin Michael (Chad Duell), and sister-in-law Olivia (Lisa LoCicero). He was the son of Tracy Quartermaine and mobster Paul Hornsby.
His dismissal coincides with RPW taking time off the GH set to film his upcoming movie The Last Three Days.
What do you think, readers, should become of all the people Dillon is connected to on the GH canvas as he exits the show?
