GH fans aren’t crazy about the idea, knowing that Sonny is actually still alive. Regarding the fans, he admits that they “don’t really get it,” but clears the air with his statement. Burton discloses, “Look, what Laura and I care about is that we’ve had some amazing scenes. That’s what it comes down to for us,” the actor notes. “The overall story, if it works, awesome, but we’re finding something new for us, which we’ve never had, being on the show this long. That’s what’s intriguing to actors. And that’s what I think a lot of fans don’t really get, is that this is new for us, and this is cool for us because as actors we get to explore and do new things with new people and have new scenes and it’s pretty exciting.”
The story of Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) and Jason’s romance died before it even got a chance to take off.

I think it works perfectly; it’s like a perfect storm of [a marriage] having to happen.” Jason wanted things to work out with Britt, and he genuinely cares for her. But right now his loyalties lie with Carly and the family business. Many fans aren’t happy with that. Fans want to me wow by Jason couldn’t just tell Britt the truth about what’s going on, and Steve Burton have his explanation. “A lot of Mafia guys had their affairs on the side, so anything’s possible, but right now, Jason’s doing it by the book, right? It just doesn’t behoove him, in a power transition like this, in a power struggle where there’s violence and all these things happening, to sneak around.” Burton continues, “There is one thing here to accomplish, and that’s the goal of showing a united front with Jason and Carly; this is the best way to do it. Gotta cut the thing off with Britt and move forward for the family. That’s the mentality. And we are on a soap opera, so please forgive me!”
