General Hospital’s Jason Shocker! Is He IN or is He OUT?

It seems like the executives over at ABC’s General Hospital have been going back and forth on whether or not the iconic role of Jason Morgan would be recast after the departure of Steve Burton. Steve Burton played Jason Quartermaine (later Jason Morgan) for 21 years. After leaving General Hospital due to conflicts of interests with General Hospital executives, Burton soon after joined the cast of  CBS The Young and the Restless as Dylan McAvoy. He has signed a 2 year contract with Y&R, therefore, has no intention of going back to General Hospital in that time.

Just because GH doesn’t have Steve Burton, doesn’t mean they can’t have the character, Jason Morgan. We have seen it done many times through General Hospital’s 51 years of existence, Amazing actors and fan favorites have been forced to be recast all the time. Edward Quartermaine, Carly Corinthos Jacks, AJ Quartermaine, Lulu Spencer, Nikolas Cassadine, Helena Cassadine, just to name a few. What makes Steve Burton any different? Although Steve Burton made the character of Jason Morgan who we all know and love today, there comes a time where the show must go on.

We have been hearing for many months now that the role of Jason Morgan would be recast, and the actor to play that role would be Billy Miller from The Young and the Restless. However, nothing has been confirmed or denied. Many credible sources have admitted seeing Miller around LA with GH cast members. When Miller was asked the direct question if he has joined the cast of GH to play Jason Morgan he danced around the question.

Due to many rumors circulating the media, fans were expecting to see Jason return to GH (in the form of Billy Miller), this August 7th-8th. After today’s SHOCKING episode of General Hospital fans are left with more uncertainty and confusion about this subject than ever before. Robin telling Patrick “Jason is dead,” is not exactly what fans expected to hear just one day before Billy Miller has been said to make his debut. It looks like Robin is willing to push Patrick over the edge just to be able to save him from Victor’s wrath. Robin denied that she is being threatened and being held captive. She assured Patrick that she is there because she wants to be even though Jason is dead. She is claiming that her research and work will be of the greater good and that she is helping terminally ill people in the future. What happens next? Is Robin lying to Patrick in order to protect her family?

Some Familiar Faces Headed to Port Charles

The residents of Port Charles are always engaged in some sort of life altering drama that involves, lies, deceit, murder, baby drama, and rising from the dead.

This week on General Hospital Patrick runs into his wife Dr. Robin Scopio Drake (who was once thought to be dead) while helping his good friend Sam, investigate her boyfriend Silas’ wife, Nina Clay. Wow, that was a mouthful. All the while, it has been rumored that Sam’s presumed dead husband, Jason Morgan, is also in that very clinic (Crichton-Clark) that she and Patrick are in, searching for dirt on Nina Clay. Sam is convinced that she isn’t as helpful as she presents her self to be, and that she may indeed be able to walk.

Along with Robin, it has been rumored we will be seeing another familiar face. The man that brought the brilliant doctor Robin with him to save Jason’s life, Victor Cassadine. Of course to save Jason’s life there was a catch… she also was obligated to resurrect a few Cassadines. Has Robin succeeded in saving Jason’s life? Sam may just come face to face with her husband. Who do you think will be coming back from a cryogenic state? Helena, possibly Stavros?

What familiar faces of past PC residents and the un-dead are you hoping to see in the upcoming weeks?
