Will Patrick Fall for Sam and Still Keep the Secret About Jason?

Sam and Patrick have been friends for a long time. They have been there for each other through the hard times. Patrick was the one who operated on Jason when his life was hanging in the balance. He saved Jason for Sam and only Sam. At that time, Patrick blamed Jason for the death of Robin, as she was trying to come up with a cure for Jason in the lab when it blew up. Dr. Drake was hesitant to perform surgery on Jason to due the nature of his career. He felt that Jason’s life wasn’t worth saving until Sam stepped in and pleaded with him to save Jason so she wouldn’t be left without a husband.

Sam was there for Patrick when he needed a shoulder to lean on when he was trying to let go of Robin in order to move on with Sabrina. Patrick gave Sam advice when she was unsure about her relationship with Silas. Sam also was in Patrick’s corner when Robin decided to leave him and Emma shortly after finally being reunited with her family. Unknowingly to Sam, Robin is away trying to save Jason’s life and Patrick is keeping the secret from Sam.

Patrick has recently suffered the tragedy of losing his son in a car accident. His good friend and P.I. Sam, has been helping him through it all emotional as well as aiding in the investigation to find out who caused their car to run off the road. Through this journey together, Patrick and Sam have grown much closer. They found out that the car that ran Patrick and Sabrina off the road belonged to Silas, and the one driving the night of the accident was Rafe. Rafe is Silas’ nephew and Sam’s foster son. Sam is even standing by Patrick after the operation on Rafe took a turn for the worse which left her foster son brain dead.

As Sam and Patrick grow closer, they may even fall in love. However, Patrick is keeping a very large secret from Sam. Will Patrick’s guilt keep him from taking a step towards a romantic relationship with Sam? Or will Patrick fall in love with her just as Jason is due to return to Port Charles?

If Sam and Patrick begin a romantic relationship, when it comes out that Patrick has known this whole time that Jason could possibly be brought back to her, it is hard to believe that Sam would ever forgive him. Perhaps Patrick should come clean before they get involved romantically.

The General Hospital and Y&R Saga

It seems as though the General Hospital fans cannot seem to put down the Steve Burton story. It should be simple, right? Steve Burton left his role as Jason Morgan after 21 years because he moved to Tennessee for his family. At this point, we all wish it was that simple. This has been an ongoing saga for months on end now. After leaving General Hospital, it was shockingly announced that Steve Burton was joining the cast of The Young and the Restless as Dylan. Fans were outraged and accused Steve of plotting this with friend Jill Farren Phelps over at Y&R all along. Burton has already made numerous attempts to convince the fans that was not the case but for some reason some of the fans just cannot let it go.Not only is Steve getting grief from his devoted General Hospital fans who have felt abandoned by their favorite daytime actor, he is also receiving some negativity from the Y&R fans. Y&R fans claim that ever since Burton arrived the show revolves around his character Dylan, fans calling it “The Dylan Show.”

In regard to the entire issue with GH and Y&R fans, Steve explained what actually is going on, he said, “Listen, without the fans we don’t have a show. I understand their frustrations and I know that they don’t necessarily like change. I guess maybe my coming to Y&R upsets people because they don’t really know the truth of what happened. What you and I both know — that GH didn’t make a deal with me. And that’s the whole truth. My contract was up and they didn’t want to play ball and make it work. At the time, I didn’t want to throw anyone under the bus over there but of course, as soon as it was announced I was going to Y&R, people thought the whole thing was planned by Jill from Day 1, which it was not. I vividly remember my manager telling me how ABC Business Affairs had called him to say, “Hey, is Steve going to Y&R now that Jill’s over there?” And my manager said, ‘No, he wants to make a deal with you! Quit dragging your feet. Make a deal.’ But they wouldn’t.”

You win some, you lose some, and you can’t please them all. There was more real life drama in the soap world when actress Michelle Stafford left her role as Phyllis on The Young and the Restless and joined General Hospital. Fans over at Y&R are missing their longtime fan favorite of Genoa City just as GH fans are missing Burton. With the arrival of Nina Clay, Silas’ wife in Port Charles, Michelle Stafford hasn’t exactly gotten a warm welcome from General Hospital fans. Maybe Steve Burton is right, and people just don’t like to accept change. But if things don’t “change” at some point, or if fans don’t cling onto that small hope that their favorite actor or actress will be coming back to the roles they are best known for, these stories about Steve Burton and Michelle Stafford just may never be put to rest.

As for now, Steve Burton is happy at Y&R and intends to stay there for the foreseeable future. Stafford is happily playing the role of Nina Clay on General Hospital and has no intention of leaving and reprising her role as Phyllis on The Young and the Restless. The role of Phyllis has already been recast and will now be played by soap vet Gina Tognoni. Rumors are still up in the air on the Jason Morgan recast. It is still rumored that Billy Miller will be playing Jason Morgan, but no new news about a signed contract has been confirmed by executives.

 

Billy Miller as Jason Morgan; Maybe Not?

Trying to figure out what is going on with the role of Jason Morgan is almost as dramatic as the character Jason Morgan itself. After months and months of rumors regarding a recast for the role of Jason Morgan, a few weeks ago it was confirmed, or so it seems, that The Young and the Restless actor, Billy Miller had left Y&R  due to a recent disagreement with Jill Farren Phelps, and was headed to General Hospital. Billy Miller was said to be replacing Steve Burton’s 21 year stint as Jason Quartermaine (Jason Morgan).

Now things are looking a little uncertain. ABC has not confirmed any contract with Billy Miller. As of now, the actor has not signed a contract with General Hospital. ABC may just be keeping this information private for the time being, but rumors state that Miller will join the GH cast this coming August. Time is running out if a contract indeed still needs to be signed.

Comment below and let us know what you think of replacing Steve Burton as Jason Morgan.

Liz Sees Dead People

 

The newest rumor flying around the General Hospital fan media is that Elizabeth sees the dead… or not so dead. Rumor has it that she is either going crazy to think she is seeing people who have been thought to be dead, or she actually sees these people. Supposedly there will be three.

The question is, who could they be? Some names have been thrown out there and these are just a few the fans came up with… Jason, Ric, AJ. However, if one of them she sees is Jason whom we know is coming back to GH, (Billy Miller), it might make sense that the other two are possible Stavros and Helena. After all, Victor Cassadine needed Robin’s help to bring some Cassadine’s back from there cryogenic state.

If this rumor ends up being true, and Liz is about to see three people she thought were dead, who do you think they would be?  Comment below with your guesses!

 

Fan Favorite Returning to General Hospital! Check out the Script!

There is a lot going on in Port Charles right now, especially a lot of people coming back from the dead. Wives and husbands surprising their spouses with life after death. Villains are resurfacing and Cassadines are getting unfrozen.

Victor Cassadine is headed back to Port Charles… the one who took Robin away from her family in order to bring Jason back to life. He is frozen along side some Cassadines that Victor wants thawed out. He needed Robin’s help, and since Jason is her best friend, she jumped at the opportunity even though it meant leaving Patrick and Emma behind again.

It looks like Robin (Kimberly McCullough) will be accompanying Victor (Thaao Penghlis) back to Port Charles this time around. Earlier today, actress Kimberly McCullough posted a photo on Instagram of  a script. Her caption reads, “Try to say something bad about soap actors. I dare you. I freaking date you;) this is one day people and only my scenes, not the whole script.”

Donna Mills Headed Back to GH?

She blasted into Port Charles reeking havoc on the residents of Port Charles. Madeline Reeves, Mother-in-law of Silas clay, and sister of Liesl Obrecht turned the lives of her loved ones (or enemies) upside down. She came into town because she wanted Silas to sign over his rights to her daughters finances. Her daughter, Nina Clay was said to be in a 20 year coma. When Silas started to ask questions, Madeline told him that she had past away. Her son, Nathan West, (which we found out was actually her nephew, and son of Dr. Liesl Obrecht, sister of Dr. Britt Westbourne), also was lead to believe that his sister, now cousin, Nina had died.

Nina is far from dead. She is alive and out for her husband Silas. Since encountering her in the park, Silas and Sam have hit a speed bump in their relationship. Nina, Silas’ wife, whom he thought was dead, is now found to be alive, and is driving a wedge between him and his girlfriend, Sam.

Now that Nina is back, and already causing trouble, will her Mother be close behind? Surely Silas will have a lot to say to Madeline, as will Nathan. She made them believe Nina was dead, therefore it’s obvious she has something to hide. What could she be hiding? Fans have speculated that Nina’s child just might be alive. Who will it be? SOme say they have a feeling Kiki is not Ava’s and perhaps Madeline made a deal with Ava to raise Kiki as her own.

Rumors have been circulating that Donna Mills is already taping and is expected to make another appearance in Port Charles as Madeline Reeves very shortly.

Comment and share to let us know if you are looking forward to all the upcoming drama that is in store for Nina, Silas and Sam, Nathan, Britt, and the rest of the gang!

The TRUTH About Why Steve Burton Left General Hospital

The last few weeks have been crazy with the announcement of Billy Miller (ex Y&R star), coming to General Hospital. It has been rumored for months that Miller would replace Steve Burton as the legendary mob enforcer, Jason Morgan.

In a recent interview with TV Guide’s Michael Logan, Steve Burton wanted to set the record straight and let everything know why he left General Hospital. He said that money was definitely an issue, and when it was time for Burton’s contract to be up, executives over at General Hospital were not willing to negotiate. Burton said to Logan, “What you and I both know – that ‘GH’ didn’t make a deal with me. And that’s the truth. My contract was up and they didn’t want to play ball and make it work. At the time, I didn’t want to throw anyone under the bus over there but of course, as soon as it was announced I was going to “Y&R,” people thought the whole thing was planned by Jill on Day 1, which it was not.” Steve Burton stated that he did not necessarily want to leave his 20 year role of Jason Morgan and that GH had the opportunity to bring him back. That being said, he wants fans to know that going to The Young and the Restless was not a set up between himself and Jill Farren Phelps. Burton did what was best for himself and for his family at that time.

Steve Burton is now happy over at The Young and the Restless although sad that things didn’t work out for him over at General Hospital. It has been said that the door is always open for Burton at GH, but for now he will be staying at Y&R as Dylan.

 

 

Victor Cassadine Returns! Who Will He Bring With Him?

Actor Thaao Penghlis who plays Victor Cassadine on General Hospital will be returning to Port Charles. He was recently in town to blackmail Robin Scorpio Drake into helping his fellow Cassadines come “back to life.” Stavros Cassadine are frozen in a facility… the same facility where Victor told Robin her dear friend Jason was being held. With his body being in the same state as the Cassadine clan, Victor presented Robin with the option of saving Jason’s life as well as helping Stavros. Robin thought Jason Morgan was dead, so of course this all came as a shock to her. Robin agreed to leave with Victor even though she had just been reunited with her family after being help captive.

Who will Victor bring with him to Port Charles this time around? There must be a purpose for his return. Therefore, does this mean Robin did her job and she can come home to her family? Maybe Robin AND Jason will be returning to Port Charles and shock the town.

When Kimberly McCullough left GH, she stated that she wanted her role to be left open so that she can return. She was working on another project but said she would be happy to return to General Hospital when she was done. With the recent news involving cast confirmation of Billy Miller to GH, this all could mean that BOTH characters will be due to return.

Comment below and let us know what you think! Is it time for Robin and Jason to return to their families?

 

Billy Miller Coming to General Hospital! “Done Deal.”

For months now it has been rumored that the Young and the Restless star, Billy Miller will be joining the cast of General Hospital as a replacement for Steve Burton’s iconic role of Jason Morgan.

We may now have confirmation that this once rumor, is now a true fact. TV Guide’s Michael Logan tweeted that he heard Billy Miller is coming to GH. Will Billy Miller be playing Jason Morgan or an entirely different character?

Check out the tweet below!

 

Steve Burton Not Thrilled About ‘Jason Morgan’ Recast

There has been a lot of talk in the last couple of months that the role of Jason Morgan will be recast in the near future. Recently fans have learned that Jason is not actually dead but he is frozen along with some Cassadines. Victor Cassadine has called upon one of Jason’s oldest and best friends, Robin Scorpio to help him help Helena and Stavros (who are in the same predicament as poor Jason). Robin agreed to help in order to save Jason.

With Robin off to God knows where with Victor Cassadine working on saving her friend, the fans are wondering what is going to happen with the role of Jason Morgan. Will he be recast? Will Steve Burton reprise the role? Last month Steve Burton announced on Twitter that he is staying put at The Young and the Restless.

It has been rumored that ex Y & R star, Billy Miller would the the first choice to take on the role of Jason. Although Steve Burton isn’t thrilled about some else filling his shoes as the iconic mob enforcer, he did make a statement regarding Billy Miller. Burton recently told Soaps in Depth, “When all that talk was going on, I said to myself ‘Billy would be perfect.’ It’s a character I played for a long time, and I have a huge emotional connection to him and the people there. It’d be weird to see, but they have to do what they have to do. I understand that.

Now that we have Steve’s blessing to recast Jason with actor Billy Miller, what do the fans think about this potential recast?
