McCoy’s character of Josslyn Jacks is facing the death of her first love, Oscar Nero, and Eden shared some thoughts via Twitter after the May 1 show aired.
As The Inquisitr shared, Oscar did pass away during Wednesday’s show. Eden’s character of Josslyn has been integral to this storyline and fans know that Joss will be front and center as everybody grieves this loss.

As The Inquisitr recently detailed, Eden has opened up about how grateful she is to be trusted with all of this heavy-duty work via this Oscar storyline. McCoy joined General Hospital when she was 12, and it definitely took a while for viewers to warm up to her.

Now, the writers have allowed Josslyn, and Eden, to blossom. Joss has progressed from being what many felt came off as a bratty, entitled pre-teen to a strong young woman who very much echoes that of her mother Carly.
McCoy has said she loves doing the heavy stuff, but she has admitted that this particular storyline has taken a toll on her. General Hospital spoilers from She Knows Soaps don’t reveal many specifics about what comes next for Josslyn, but it is known that the teen will grieve Oscar’s death and struggle for quite some time.
General Hospital fans who have grown to love Eden McCoy and her portrayal of Josslyn Jacks cannot wait to see what comes next for her. While Joss will obviously face some dark and difficult times in the days and weeks ahead, viewers know that there will be fun and happy times coming, too, and eventually, probably a romance with Cameron as well.
