As previously reported, General Hospital Blog shared the news regarding Steve Burton leaving his role on CBS’ The Young and the Restless after only 3 years. Burton left his 21 year role as Jason (Quartermaine) Morgan in 2012, and joined Y&R as Dylan McAvoy in 2013.
In the midst of all the actor swapping drama that went on between ABC’s General Hospital and CBS’ Y&R, GH was able to snag up Billy Miller (ex- Billy Abbott, Y&R) to take over the role of the iconic ‘Stonecold’, Jason Morgan.
Fast forward to this Fall, there was much confusion once again caused by news revolving around Steve Burton, Billy Miller, and their respective daytime dramas. General Hospital rumors were swirling after news broke out of Steve’s departure from Y&R, and fans automatically started to speculate, wondering if Billy Miller was on his way out of GH, leaving room for Steve Burton to reprise his role.
When Steve left in 2012, it was one of the biggest upsets in General Hospital history. Fans were upset and angry, and many didn’t want to welcome Billy Miller (or anyone for that matter) into the role of their beloved Jason Morgan. Much to our surprise, General Hospital Blog conducted a poll, which resulted in fans choosing Billy Miller as Jason at 61%, leaving fans who chose Steve Burton to come back at a shocking 39%.
It looks like this time around, fans got what they wanted. General Hospital spoilers broke the news that Billy Miller has signed on for another year long contract with GH.

Last week, the shocking news broke out, confirming Steve Burton’s EXIT from The Young and the Restless after just three years as Dylan McAvoy. The time Burton spent at Y&R is merely a fraction of his 21 year performance on General Hospital as Jason Quartermaine/Morgan. Fans new and loved him as a resident of Port Charles for over 2 decades.
Last Fall, General Hospital news reports confirmed that GH newcomer, (Steve’s recast as Jason Morgan), Billy Miller had signed on a new contract with GH. However it has been reported that contract was a ONE YEAR contract, which would mean talk of contract negotiations with Miller should take place around this time. However, we are already into October, and Miller is still on screen as Jason Morgan. There has been no confirmation on whether or not Billy Miller has signed on yet again with ABC’s General Hospital. Fans of both Steve Burton and Billy Miller are scrambling to search for answers. The biggest question this news poses to fans is, “Will Steve Burton reprise his role as Jason Morgan?”
General Hospital Blog will keep fans notified of any contract information regarding GH’s current Jason Morgan, Billy Miller. So far, there isn’t a reason to believe he will be leaving the show, but on the other hand, there hasn’t been confirmation of a new contract deal either.
We want to know! Would you welcome Steve Burton back to GH with open arms as Jason Morgan once again?
We haven’t heard much about Helena’s curse since the day she “cast her spell” onto Sam Morgan. Helena was lying in her death bed, and although she acted as if she needed to reveal her wrongs so that she could die in peace, she left one classic piece of herself behind… a curse.
Helena and Sam’s mom, Alexis, have never been each other’s favorite people. Although Alexis is a Cassadine, she has lived her adult life as an outsider, other than keeping in contact with her nephew, Nikolas.
It’s no surprise that Helena hates Sam as much as she does Alexis, and now Sam has to live with knowing that this evil woman has put a curse on her.
Lately, the only person that seems to be continuously crossing Sam’s path in a negative way, is Elizabeth’s son Jake. Jake was presumed dead for a few years, and recently we learned that he was kept on Cassadine Island. There is no telling what type of mind tricks and brain washing Helena has done to that child. Everyone found it to be quite odd that Helena would return Jake back to Liz in one piece, without expecting anything in return.
General Hospital rumors have been swirling since the day Jake came back to Port Charles, that there is something off about that child. He could quite possibly be the source of Helena’s curse. Based on the drawing he made in art therapy with Franco, it’s easy to come to the assumption that he has it out for Sam and Danny. In that disturbing picture, it shows Liz and Jake happily frolicking while Sam and Danny lay lifeless and bloody on the ground.
Did Helena program Jake to go after Sam and Danny? Let us know what you think! Is Jake the key to Helena’s curse on Sam?
