Friday marked the exit of Matt Cohen as Dr. Griffin Munro on ABC’s General Hospital.  In key scenes, after getting into an altercation with Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), and realizing he has lost his way, the good doc resigns from GH, and decides to head out of town.

In addition on Friday, the CW announced that after 15 seasons it is ending the hit series, Supernatural, which Cohen has also appeared and been a key part of many Supernatural fan conventions.

Series stars Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric Days), and Misha Collins made the announcement in a video posted on Instagram  “We just told the crew that even though we’re very excited to be moving into our 15th season, it will be our last,” Ackles said. “15 years of a show that has certainly changed my life, I know it’s changed these two guys’ lives, and we just wanted you to here from us that though we’re excited about next year, it will be the finale.”  The final season will consist of 20 episodes.

After the airing of his final scenes on General Hospital, and the news of Supernatural coming to an end, Matt tweeted:  “Tough day. Emotionally. My last episode of @GeneralHospital aired. And @cw_spn announced its final season. I am grateful to all the fantastic casts, crews, and fandoms I have been able meet along the way. It’s all those experiences that have helped me grow into the man I am today.”

Now below, watch some scenes from today’s GH which leads Griffin to exit Port Charles.

DANG IT : as posts have already shared. another character left by the wayside

his scenes w/Ryan… say it all… their were levels of intensity and fraught

had Shelly AND Chris just tapped in to.. they would have seen what we’ve already known

yeah, it’s hard to not NOTICE his VERY good looks… but he manages to do that w/ease

I was so disappointed when Bree Williamson’ Claudette , never returned .

I’m going to miss him he was my fave guy on the show, I hope he returns, I wish they would of made him Anna ‘s son, but I’m grateful they didn’t kill him off. I wish they would of given him a last scene w/ Finola instead of Carly and sonny. now hopefully he will come back down the line.

I hate what they did to Griffin’s character. I’m not happy with the way they wrote him out. But the door is open….

I disliked what they did to Griffin’s character and don’t like the way they had him exit. But the door is open..,

Lin…I’m thinking Griffin could go to a monastery or some spiritual retreat for a while to pull himself together again. Then he could come back to Port Charles a healed man. I can’t help but think that it wasn’t just his last behavior towards Kevin that made him realized he lost himself, but also some guilt over leaving Ava for Kiki the way he did.

I have to “Laud” this man “farewell”

I once likened, him… to Robert Forster… check him out… in “Jackie Brown” w/ Pam Grier.. he played Max cherry… the “likeness” is startling. in one of my favorite “love” story

Matt Cohen has all the Potential to feature

Salute

In a few months he should come back as Lucky, with Gene Farber as Nikolas. Laura needs her sons at her side

If Jonathan Jackson doesn’t want to return, the logical choice would be Jacob Young, who won an Emmy as Lucky and is readily available. No need to go for a 4th Lucky.

I really like the character and the fine actor, Matt Cohen. I wish him great success and know he will do well. Maybe one fine day, he might return to GH. Thank goodness his character was left in a way where he could return.

Best of luck to the actor..That said, his acting was ok at best and the character of Griffin was just dull from day one till the end due to the poor writing regime…This show has needed new head writers for a couple of years now..I still watch because of some solid actors in the cast and the best directors in soaps!!

Can this old lady get her two cents in? Acting, acting? All he has to do is stand there. This guy is hilarious in real life. Saw him on stage, on one of Michael’s videos. I’ll miss him.

God!! Matt is soooo hot!!
Nonetheless, I did not like what TPTB did to his exit scene. Griffin is broken; angry; miserable….I get it. He is still grieving understandable. But, so pitiful??
I just wish his “adieu” had been less painful and more….”til we meet again”-like..
I guess there was nothing left for Griffin, other than watch him capitulate into another fisticuffs scenario.
Happy Trail, Matt…

If TPTB had been even slightly interested in writing from the Devane-Lavery family POV, Matt could’ve gotten an amazing story. So Jean and Shelley wrote him in as Duke’s son then after that, everything went to hell in a handbasket as there was no Justice for a truly dead Duke (as TPTB who are anti-SuperCouple liked to say “dead dead”), Julian did not pay any consequences for killing Duke and forcing him into Turkish prison for perhaps decades (as well as betraying Anna & Duke decades ago). Then to add insult to injury, Griffin was pulled out of Anna’s scenes… Read more »
