GENERAL HOSPITAL: Jason/Six And Robin Come Face To Face On The Bridge!


Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the on-screen reunion after five years of Steve Burton (Jason/Six) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin).  Through the years, fans of the soap opera have witnessed, first, the young love story of a young Jason and Robin and its transition on how they moved on to become dear friends, and at times, each other’s savior.

Now, where else to have the on-screen reunion, but on the now GH-famous bridge … that special place that has meant so much to key moments in their lives and relationships. When Robin sees Jason/Six on the bridge, she is surprised and confused, and yet not sure to believe if the guy standing before her is the real Jason Morgan.  This is especially complicated for her, because Robin says the man who has been known as Jason (Billy Miller) for the last few years took her place when she was almost blown to smithereens by a bomb at Crichton-Clark.

Robin goes on to say that the other Jason has the same memories as Jason/Six, after he explains that the other guy with Sam is indeed his twin!  Still she has doubts that he is the real Jason, and says perhaps the man with Sam (Kelly Monaco) is the true Jason.  However, that all changes when Jason/Six says to her if he would just believe him that would be “icing on the cake”. Robin then flashes back to the night of their first kiss as young loves, when she first explained to Jason what the expression “icing on the cake” meant … it means, “better, than the best”.

Looking at Jason/Six, and recalling that key memory forces Robin to admit that Jason/Six is the real Jason.  Next, in an emotional moment, Robin runs into Jason’s arms.  She says, “It’s you, Jason!”

Jason/Six goes on to say that Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) are attempting to dig up proof that he is the real deal, but he admits to Robin that in the end all he wants to do is find out who perpetrated these crimes against him and his brother.

It is always great to see soap vets, Burton and McCullough in scenes, and this was no different.  They have always had a very sweet and enduring on-screen dynamic.  So, were you glad to see the Jason/Six  and Robin scenes?  Do you feel you have any more clarity if Robin, Carly, and Sonny all believe Six is the real Jason … or… could all three be wrong?

Love it

I m loving SEEING these “TWO” EMMY WINNER’s as STEVE BURTON won his very 1st EMMY award for soap GH with 1 sl and the storyline was with ROBIN his onscreen SOULMATE JMHO IMO. I’m so happy BOTH are such great friends after how it ended and the way JASON “stare/with realistic/genuine happiness “relief” to see her/at the old infamous GH bridge was priceless. GOING TO REWIND IT AGAIN. another 1033 times. #ghrobinandjason #J&RForever

We were all routing for these guys back in the day and everyone wanted this scene to work out. There was just some awkwardness and I don’t know if it was the writing, the delivery or just something off between the actors and their chemistry. Something was just ‘off’ and I cannot explain it.

I suppose it was touching and well-acted, but it’s just another slap in the face to those of us who are team Billy. Lord, am I sick of people writing him off because the saint of Port Charles returns. At least Robin had the class to mention that newJason saved her life and has the same type of heart. More than he ever got from selfish Sonny, short-memoried Carly, or that harridan Diane (“I’ve already closed off YOUR file…I know who the real Jason is”). Ingrates! Heck, Patient 6 is handling it better than the rest of the town. Shame on Sonny & Carly!

I so agree!!!The way they are all acting is so gross it makes no sense how they all forget the last few years I hate it!!!!

I hope for Billy Miller’s sake they let him be Drew.
He could shine as a new character all of his own. He really never was Stonecold to a lot of us.

Yes, yes, and yes……I do appreciate Steve Burton. He has been great so far….surprised me.
But, Billy is Billy….he will always be my fave, Soaphound.
TPTB should have never gone there—taking away the main substance of what makes Billy/Jason who/what he is, and just bounce it around… limbo.
Perhaps that is the reason Sonny and Carly never took to him……because he would not be dominated? Tamed by them?
Nevertheless, I cannot deny the impact Steve made on me. However, therein lies the crux of the matter…..this unfailing loyalty to Sonny and Carly seems to take over his better judgment, if he even has a sagacious thought in his head.
Six is the ‘puddy-tat’ to this heinous duo as Tweety is to Sylvester……so malleable in their hands.
The difference is; Tweety always outsmarts Sylvester. Duh!!

Six needs to be Jason. I absolutely love the chemistry still after all these years.

Hey, Kym,
Absolutely agree. This is why I have always believed Billy Miller should have been cast as his own individual being; that is; someone else.

There is no slap in the face. No one including Sonny and Carly are dismissing the good things that Billy’s Jason has done. They have all praised him. But one is Jason and the other isn’t. If they believe Steve is Jason what are they supposed to do? Are they supposed to pretend he’s Jason out of some kind of loyalty? So he can continue to live someone else’s life?

This is all just nonsense from Billy stans who are desperate for him to be Jason and I can’t understand why that’s important. He’s nothing like Jason and can just be Drew Q. There is no difference moving forward. He wants out of the mob, wants to run a company, so he can. And he can have Sam, the two are a snoozefest. Sam putting on a suit and sitting behind a big girl desk. Please. They can have each other.

i’m not interested at all.. what happens with Billy Miller character involvement WITH Sonny and Carly… and Sam. this has been… a snoozefest

AFTER – seeing Billy Miller and Leslie Charelson.. scene @the Quartermaine cemetary plot.

the scene ends with so much heart
the scene ends with so much sensitivity

the scene belongs to : BM Drew ? and HIS mother… Monica

yeah.. I watched the scene soonafter.. as she went to the hotel where Steve Burton Jason was staying.. and it was just as moving…

as Monica is telling SB’ Jason… “It’s so good to see you”

GAWD – we get to see Monica

the magnetic pull.. from Billy Miller and Leslie … MAGICAL

this is ALL – I want

OK – @GH , HIRE Robin Christopher to bring that girl power.. to the Q

let’s see BM as Drew and Liz.. do over and better… make that Jake Doe tryst with Liz.. more playful… sensual… DANCE

Very well put, MB. Your description of Sam is painfully true.
I am a fan of both Kelly and Sam, but her sitting there behind that desk as a publishing executive does distort the character, as we know her.

The same could be said about Lulu, the journalist? Oh, my. I hope she will make her pronouns agree with the subject. Only in soaps could people become experts with a pen without formal training, or enter Medical School without a College degree and pre-Med experiences.

I think you have summed it all up very effectively. Everyone will fit into his place eventually. Move on is right. But some drama needs to go through all the necessary soapy steps before that happens.

You make some really good assertions, MB. I don’t quite understand this team business. Can’t you love Burton without that love negating your love of Miller? I think there is room for both of these fabulously talented men.
I have appreciated Miller since his AMC days and loved how he just brought that Billy Abbott character come alive with an abundance of natural effervescence. Miller is that guy who enters a room and party begins just with his entering the room. That is why I never felt he was the right fit as Jason Stonecold Morgan who could enter the room and become part of the wall paper if he so chooses. Let Miller have his own character, let him be himself, let him do what he does best, let him be Drew/

I don’t think Soaphound means it’s a slap in the face to Billy Miller; rather Billy Miller’s character. It’s painfully obvious that Sonny, Carly, Diane and today, Robin are pulling away from him. They’ve understandably been beyond ecstatic to have “their” Jason back, but haven’t been exactly reassuring or compassionate to the man (Billy’s Jason) that they all called friend and claimed to love just weeks ago. So, yes, the character has experienced a slap in the face, over and over again. If he’s not who he thinks he is, then it’s all the more important that he still feels the love and support of people he thought of as friends…who are rallying around his brother and have vacated from his life.

MB, Rebecca said it best in her response. I don’t want Billy to be Jason at all. In fact, I can’t wait for him to get away from the toxicity of Sonny’s “world”. But if my “friends” referred to me variously as Sam’s husband (Carly), the stranger (Spinelli), that guy (Sonny), or the lovely sentiments of dear Robin (whose life he saved), “You’re just NOT Jason”, I’d be as angry as Drew/Billy was. Call me overly sensitive.

I couldn’t believe the gall and disrespect by Diane

yeah.. she’s always out for the buku buck and high browing her legalese

granted… I LOVE HER

I just thought.. what the heck … what’s this obvious dump

I’ve seen Monica render her heart and home as his
I’ve seen Curtis befriend and support

even Sam isn’t believable… ? what’s she going to do… fantasize about her days of ole ? when she was tramping all over the globe.. with Steve Burton

it’s so dull and lame… as Carly is telling Sam… you are going to have to make a choice

I hope it’s that cut and dried – BAM just like that.. BM is Drew… and dances with Monica and Liz. oh.. and starts a new job @GH hospital

I think Sam’s been great, Patrick. I think she’s so confused that she’s almost repressed her feelings for Steve Burton’s “face.” Cassandra, Sonny, Carly, Michael, Monica, Robin…etc…all reacted way more than she did when she saw him. One would have thought she’d completely freak out and literally have to be sedated.

I just think her love for Jason was so strong…she mourned for him so long…and now she couldn’t bear the possibility that her current husband is not THE Jason. That would mean her entire relationship was based on a past that didn’t exist with him. At the same time, she loves her husband, whether he be Jason or Drew…and I think she’s afraid to admit she has doubts. Because then her love and loyalties would be divided and she’d be tortured. Which is understandable…

I AM curious to see how it plays out. If Steve Burton is Jason Morgan, the man she once thought was the love of her life, will she go back to him and his Sonny/Carly lifestyle? Or, will her love for THIS Jason be enough…with a more stable, safe, normal lifestyle, away from the business.

Dilemma. And then where does Oscar and the gorgeous Tamara Braun fit in? Will he remember his love for her? Accept Oscar as his son? (Which by the way would mean that Oscar is Michael’s cousin. Jocelyn’s brother’s cousin.) LOL…such a tight-knit community!

And, nope. Franco and Liz for the win. (Although Liz and Griffin were always such a cute looking could-be couple should Franco fall out of the running.)

oops! Not Cassandra…I meant Oscar’s mom, Kim.

i’m done with GH after this story. I think it really sucks to do this to Billy Miller and his character…he’s been carrying the character of Jason Morgan all these years, and now Steve Burton decides he wants to come back and they just do this switch-a-roo?? I don’t like this, and won’t be watching anymore. The better twist would have been for Steve Burton to be Andrew, that way he could take on playing a new role. Oh well, I will strictly go back to just watching Y&R and Days!

I agree, Torrey. Did you hear Spinelli on Friday? Calling Billy/Jason “the stranger” and even implying he illegally obtained Aurora Enterprises and that Scout will now be part of SB/Jason’s family?! I’m surprised Diane didn’t have formal adoption papers ready for SB to sign and having Jordan arrest Andrew for corporate fraud! Oh wait, the year’s not over yet.

All I know is Liz fell in love with Jake Doe treated him with respect the rest of the bunch including your precious Sam only decided to love him because they thought he was Jason and god forbid he stay with Liz. Just one day I would like to see someone anyone slap the holy you know what out of that screaming Carly and that husband who never looks anyone in the eyes

As for the question I felt nothing!

Those two do got on my nerves…i have to take an anxiety pill just to watch them!!!

wow, i never thought about it that way, your right, liz did fall for him before she knew he was “jason”, and the “others” only gave him the time of day once they believed he was “jason”, although carly did like Jake doe too, in that obnoxious controlling way she tends to with anyone she “welcomes ” into her self righteous circle. Carly is the ultimate hypocrite.

Hi aria…I don’t remember it that way. As I recall, Sam was with Patrick (I actually loved them together) but she and Billy’s Jason started forming a connection BEFORE she knew he was Jason. If I recall she started knowing him when he worked for her father, he gave her a ride on his bike and it seemed to me there was a growing attraction/connection which both felt even though they didn’t act on it and each was in love with their respective partners.

So I do think by the time Sam found out it was Jason it all fell into place for her..the drawer, the pull, the attracton. Ironically, he probably won’t be “her” Jason Morgan…but still….the fact that he’s an identical twin and was programmed with the same memories would explain why she fell for him again.

In a way, the same can be said for Liz. I think there was enough similarities or familiarity that each woman felt that on a certain level they were drawn to him before his “identity” was known. And then, of course, their feelings only grew stronger when they thought he was the man each originally had loved.

I’m with you on Carly. Detest the character.

Agree, Kay…I said as much on a previous post.
Liz and Jake had everything going for them. The writers veered in the wrong direction.
The situation coulf have been remedied once she was caught in her own duplicity.
But, Sam “won”…. Why?…. Because she is Sam.

If the writers really are up for this because everybody thinks he is Jason just because he has the old face me thinks Billy might be the true Jason especially the way Franco talks today and doesn’t he know the truth? Oh well hope everybody doesn’t kill each other over it before it is solved!!

@ K/Kay , @Celia – PLUS

exactly… posts are always spouting clamoring.. for that story line original

when two hearts meet and wallah a love story for the ages

it was never forced… it was a natural progressive story that let your imagination LIVE through this newbie coupling

it was hot it steamed me out.. woah MORE please

🙂 Awesome Episode 🙂

I’m getting tired of everything becoming stupid..
And– people being trolled into buying it..

” However, that all changes when Jason/Six says to her if he would just believe him that would be “icing on the cake”. Robin then flashes back to the night of their first kiss as young loves, when she first explained to Jason what the expression “icing on the cake” meant … it means, “better, than the best”.

They BOTH have the same memory, that is fact.
So.. If SB/Jason has the memory of “icing on the cake” so does BM/Jason..
Both Jason’s have the memory of their first kiss with Robin and her explaining the expression of “icing on the cake” ..

That absolutely does Not prove SB is Jason. so, calm down … lol

Seriously, who is signing your paychecks to continuously spread the disinformation. Get over it.

hi Satan ..
what I said is Fact, they both have the exact memories, their minds are one.
They BOTH have the same memory, that is fact.
So.. If SB/Jason has the memory of “icing on the cake” so does BM/Jason..
Both Jason’s have the memory of their first kiss with Robin and her explaining the expression of “icing on the cake” ..

Again.. their minds are on and both have the same memories.
And as of now, nobody, which is which..
Also.. when we are told who is whom don’t take it to heart, many twists and turns on the way before this story ends..

As far as I can see, they do have the same memories, su. I said this from the onset….obviously, whoever toyed with them, namely Helena, transmitted the real Jason’s memories into the other’s brain.
So, who’s the real Jason? They are both so convincing, It’s kind of nuts…..very talented. Bravi.
Again, a person has his/her individual nuances….the tilt of the head, the walk, the VOICE etc…..
Seriously, I am intrigued by the story, but, really? ….I will follow along; it’s a soap.
All these people who have been close to original Jason, should know him inside-out…’s not that difficult.
I will throw all logic and perception to the wind, and play along.

You are completely right Su. And now Robin is joining the Sonny and Carly team, sad. Separately, no one writing on this sight should be personally insulting like Satan was to you. We’re all entitled to our opinion about the soaps and the characters, that’s what this sight is for.

Thank you, Yvonne…..but, there are the select few who will attack if one’s opinion does not live up to theirs.
I always respect su’s opinion….she’s usually right….more oft than not…

I think its about time things got really shook up & Jason & Robyn became a couple again!! Imagine all those possible story lines!?!

Everyone knows that SB Jason, no matter how many twists and turns, is Stone Cold. Which leads me to my original statement. BM should want to be Drew. This characters history so far is untold and could detonate the entire city of Port Charles. There’s so much the writers can do here by giving BM something beefy to chew on. Wouldn’t it be great is they someone work the Loving murders into this chaos leaving Gwyneth Alden as Alexis’ biological mother with BM working in the background. Talk about a vendetta- Sam, Jason, Drew, Alexis, Robin, Luke, Lucky, LuLu, Laura and her mother. People have forgotten the day Leslie was found in that house sitting in a chair in front of a window. She was in the same catatonic state Laura was placed in. It was the same drug. Obrecht was the chief overseeing the Loving project for Ceasar Faison and Helena. This was all apart of this mind controlling experiment she used on several PC characters. Bring Helena back so Laura can kill her for what she put her family through. Come on GH, explore this and tie it all in and be done with Helena once and for all.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Darnell.
Billy Miller and his fans (and I happen to be one of them) should want Miller to have his own character.
It wasn’t fair to make this naturally bubbly and bouncy actor try and fill Burton’s shoes.
Let him be Drew and everyone will like him better than Stonecold. Otherwise, he’s just a poor man’s Jason. Miller deserves better.

Rhonda, you speak truth! How i miss the goofy, devil-may-care quality that Billy brings so naturally. There was one moment, way back when Jake Doe was first recovering…he and Elizabeth were standing on the stairs above the nurses station, waving and carrying on with silly abandon and with Billy’s megawatt smile lighting up the room. That was vintage Billy! My only immediate concern is that now he’ll be grumpy and vengeful toward Jason, which is unfair and pointless. Let’s skip that phase and jump to an original, funny Andrew. Oh, and PLEASE let him grow that gorgeous hair back!

I remain unconvinced P6 is the real Jason.
However IF he is the real deal – I still want Sam with Billy’s version.
I’m just more a Miller fan than a Burton fan.

Right, Lisa. I honestly don’t care whom Sam ends up with–the only thing I care about is that the actor we saw flesh out Jason Quartermaine and later, Jason Morgan, turns out to be the real Jason. He doesn’t have to end up with Sam.
Sam is kind of boring to me.

My hope:

BM/Jason is original jason Q kidnapped in the 90s and have been somewhere for 20 years, partially studying as a doctor (maybe in iraq as a medic where he saw combat at one point thus Helenas grating “Soldier Boy” name). Is a businessman, aligns with the Qs, has clashes with…

Patient 6/Jason is Drew but became stone cold when replaced original Jason Q by Helena (or whomever, who cares) and is the person that we’ve been watching since the 90s. All his relationships stay in tact. Where has he been for five years? who knows/who cares but he’ll probably take over Sonny’s operation.

Thus there is a clash of brothers of business vs the mob as well as over Sam, Liz etc.

I’m giddy that I am in love with this storyline as much as I am and a little bit too.

sorry, meant to write that as a doctor, original recipe jason q is able to move from business into medicine (this is a soap, it happens all the time) and Monica is able to finally have Alan’s son be a doctor at GH.

Jason/6 & Robin have known each other since their teens, been through so
much together …Love, Life, Death…betrayal, forgiveness, hope.. A deep
abiding friendship that has lasted decades deserves to be true.
Patient 6 has to be Jason Morgan, otherwise this has all been another
“FLUKE-ISH” joke.

I could not agree more, Fanny.

But is he Jason Quartermaine??? THAT is the question…

If Jason/Six isn’t the real Stone Cold I’m done

If Jason isn’t the real Jason, this entire SHOW is done. One look at the recent ratings tells that story. All those people didn’t come back to watch a bait & switch. Especially not one engineered to prop that piece of shit character laughingly named Frodd “Baldwin”.

It was a really great scene and emotional flashbacks are always great. However as Robin said BM/Jason has the same memories. GH should be fair and do flashbacks for BMs Jason having those same memories. It’s very unfair that they only do it for SB because he has the same face…making it easy for Robin, Sonny, etc., to say SB is the real Jason. Even if BM turns out to be Drew he shouldn’t be thrown under the bus as they’re doing. SB could very well be Drew because he would have been brainwashed BEFORE BMs version was hit by Ava’s car and lost his memory, thereby having the same exact memories. It’s not hard to think after living with Elizabeth and realizing he had been a slave to Sonny and Carly that BM/Jason would want to put his family first…even though he still continued to put his life on the line for them, which they have conveniently forgotten (the writers should be ashamed for omitting that and minimizing BMs Jason). Whether SB turns out to be Jason or Drew Carly and Sonny will hold onto him because he’s the version that puts them first before his own life and family….why would Sam want that guy. Now BMs Jason should use the “icing in the cake” line and have the doubters/traitors eat their cake, lol!

Good post, Yvonne. Not sure if you’ve read some other theories; mine included. That Steve Burton IS Jason Morgan…but was originally Drew. When Jason Quartermaine ( Billy) was in the car accident with AJ all those years ago…”Drew” was put in his place…and his new identity was formed aka Jason Morgan. Meanwhile, Jason Q was whisked away…probably lived his life as Drew…until he was taken by Helena and re-programmed once again. When he was hit by the car by Ava, he lost ALL identity, had no memories…but suddenly Jason Morgan and Jason Q’s memories started flooding back.

Convoluted; I know. But I think it’d be interesting. (If the years/time frame) all made sense.

Even with the same memories, all close to Billy Miller’s Jason felt he had changed; not so much the memories but his personality. So I feel it’s not just the pinpoint memories but his demeanor, attitude, gestures…his personality. That’s why I’m pretty sure Steve is Morgan. If it turns out that’s not the case that’d be an interesting twist…

I do agree that Billy’s character, not Billy, as been thrown under the bus by his “friends.” I and several others have felt that, as well. It’s heartbreaking to see how lost Billy’s Jason is…how rejected, confused, frightened, threatened. Monica, Sam and Curtis have been the only ones to stand by him.

Again, I agree, Rebecca. Spinelli’s betrayal was the most upsetting. I loved when Billy smiled sadly at him and said, “What’s wrong, Spinelli, don’t have time to say hello to an old friend?” Heartbreaking. And your theory is actually quite compelling. Certainly better than a lot of the dreck we get asked to swallow!

To bad Jason and Robin didnt reunite last year, they might have spotted Sam at the bottom of the bridge!

HaHa…..and there goes that subtle humor, again.
I regret to say the scene means nothing to me, as I am ignorant of their past relationship.
But, I can, certainly, identify with the fans who have an emotional tie to their history.
Happy Thanksgiving, my T. Blowing you a kiss…..hurry up, catch it!!!!

Caught it, back at you dear! Hope you and your family have a great Thanksgiving!

@T and CC!!! Hope you both had a Blessed Thanksgiving! Sorry for the belated greetings….busy, busy!!!!

My hat go off to GH writing staff. Believe style of this storyline be far more twist as turns to come ! Looking forward see were going lead next weeks head . something tells me few old faces about show up in town. myself been thinking of shocking ways that tell who real Jason Morgan . believe my way would tear Jason Morgan life apart . lead into quiet new storyline . looking forward next weeks head !

I absolutely HATE this storyline,,,all this because SB wanted to come back?? I wasn’t a fan before,,,now,,definitely NOT

I – love – the mushy

Felicia and Mac are at Annas.. unaware that Robin is “home for the holidays”

just all out group hug…

I even laughed when Robin told Mac and Felicia

“do not wake the baby”

get real

Morgan took home the Daytime Emmy in this category in 2022 becoming the first Black actress in the now 50-year history to ever win it. In a tradition that was started by four-time Daytime Emmy winner Susan Flannery (Ex-Stephanie, The Bold and the Beautiful), the winning actress from the previous year has to pick up the tab, choose a restaurant and host a fun afternoon gathering for this year’s crop of nominees.

Attending the festivities were 2023 Lead Actress nominees: Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea, The Young and the Restless), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis, The Young and the Restless), Sharon Case (Sharon, The Young and the Restless) Finola Hughes (Anna, General Hospital), and Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy, The Bold and the Beautiful).

Thank you to last years winner, the fabulous Mishael Morgan for hosting an epic Lead Actress Nominee Luncheon today. It’s so nice that they all offered to give me their Emmy if they win!!”

Michelle Stafford took to her Instagram and expressed: “Lead Actress Brunch. This is a real honor. I’m truly honored to be in a group with all of these incredible women. I’ve loved them all for a very long time. We are all so grateful to be working on our shows… to be working in general, as actors. What a spectacular group of women. Mishael (Last years winner) put together a brunch that was BEYOND spectacular with gift bags even!! I mean Mishael, you are an absolute class act. Thank you for the beautiful day 🧡”

Finola Hughes posted her sentiments as well, “Yesterday was the leading ladies lunch for the Emmy’s. It’s a tradition started by the inimitable Susan Flannery. (The previous years winner throws a luncheon for the nominees). Yesterday was a very special lunch. Mishael Morgan raised the bar! The conversation was at once light hearted and deep. This was an amazing group of women, supportive, funny and caring. Thank you all for a brilliant few hours 💕 🌸 ✨”

Posting on their Instagram Stories were Michelle Stafford who gave us a little more behind the scenes of the luncheon, where Mishael also handed out a gift bag to each of the ladies, and Sharon Case who accompanied her photos with the tune “This One’s For the Girls” by Martina McBride.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom Shares Heartfelt Message to Mark His 30-Year Anniversary as Dr. Kevin Collins

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 30 years since back on December 3rd, 1993, when General Hospital viewers got the shock of their lives as the ABC soap opera introduced the psychiatrist twin brother of serial killer, Ryan Chamberlain, in the form of Dr. Kevin Collins.

For soap fans that meant we got to see even more of one of the finest actors ever to appear in the genre in Jon Lindstrom. The talented actor started on GH a year and half earlier in June of 1992 as Ryan.

Fast-forward to 2023 and Lindstrom is in the running for this year’s Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series when the 50th annual Daytime Emmy Awards are given out in less than two weeks on Friday night, December 15th on CBS. Could an Emmy on his 30th year playing Kevin and Ryan be in the cards? Stay tuned.

It has been well-documented that former GH creatives Wendy Riche (ex-EP), Claire Labine (ex-head writer) and Michelle Val Jean (ex-writer) were all instrumental in keeping Jon in Port Charles with a second role as Kevin, when he could have headed to As the World Turns at the time to play the role of Damian Grimaldi, that eventually went to Paolo Seganti.

Taking to his Instagram on Sunday to acknowledge this special milestone, Jon shared via video message, “I woke up this morning to see that today December 3rd, marks 30 years since I debuted as Dr. Kevin Collins on General Hospital. I knew that it had been a long time, but 30 years since the doppelgänger to Dr. Ryan Chamberlain was introduced. It really is remarkable. It’s been a great ride, a great run. it’s like an entire career right there. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. It’s just been great.”

Photo: JPI

Lindstrom paid tribute to those who helped create Kevin, expressing, “I have a lot of people to thank about that, let alone people like Wendy Riche and the brass at ABC at the time … Claire Labine who was writing the show back, but Michelle Val Jean was really was the one who I had the pleasure of working with to develop and bring to life Kevin Collins. She’s still a great friend today. So, there’s been a lot of blessings around this for me, and don’t think, I don’t know it. I pretty much drop to my knees every day in gratitude. Thank you world for supporting Dr. Kevin Collins and Ryan Chamberlain, for that matter. I’ll do it as long as they’ll have me.”

Accompanying his video, Jon wrote: “So grateful today for my 30 years of ‘Kevin Collins’ (and ‘Ryan Chamberlain’) on General Hospital, and for the wonderful journey my life has been, for my friends, my the family and incredible opportunities I’ve had. Hope you all have much to be grateful for.”

Share your congrats and well-wishes to Jon for 30 years as GH’s Dr. Kevin Collins via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Are You For or Against Kristina Being the Surrogate for TJ & Molly’s Baby Knowing the Storyline Implications Down the Road?

As many GH viewers have predicted, things have swung back around to Kristina (Kate Mansi) seemingly being the most viable option in Molly’s (Kristen Vaganos) mind to carry her and TJ’s (Tajh Bellow) baby as their surrogate.

If you recall, Kristina offered a few months back and was shut down by Molly, and then TJ, as the couple then went looking through agencies to find a surrogate to carry their baby to term. The surrogate they found, Andrea, told TJ she lost the baby in a miscarriage, which was confirmed by a doctor at Mercy Hospital, and she won’t go through trying to have a baby again. Leaving the couple devastated. But, is her story suspicious?

Last week on General Hospital, Molly was overwhelmed when having to look through a file to start the process of finding a surrogate and identifying the right candidate all over again and it brought her to tears. Kristina found her in the park, and that led the two to have a heart-to-heart conversation. While the two sisters have come to an agreement, now it comes to convincing TJ that this is the right move.


However, fans of the show can see how complex this will be for everyone down the line. If Kristina’s relationship with Blaze (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) moves further down the line, will she be so willing to give her sister the baby? Could there be an ugly court battle for the little one between two moms vs. TJ and Molly?  Will Kristina having their child, bring TJ and Kristina actually closer together, and cause rifts in Molly’s relationship with her man and her sister? What does the long-running soap opera have in store in the storyline by making Kristina the ultimate surrogate? Or, could Kristina lose the baby, only to find out that Andrea, the original surrogate has TJ and Molly’s child? So many possibilities.

Soap Opera Digest spoke to Kristen Vaganos on where Molly’s head is at with the situation. Vaganos shared, “I think there’s a little bit of desperation there, wanting to take a route that might be more trustworthy. (Surrogacy is) such a hard process to put trust and hope into because anything can happen. And Molly is a control freak! She wants to control as much as she can, so having a relative involved is, I think, comforting in a way.”

In terms of how Molly will re-approach TJ with Kristina being the prospective surrogate, Vaganos added, “Molly knows that it’s going to be an uphill battle, convincing him. Kristina’s track record with TJ is what it is. But it’s another leap of faith that Molly wants to take, and she just wants TJ to be on board with her. Plus, I think that TJ will really trust Molly’s opinion because Molly knows her better than anybody, and Molly would be the first person to doubt Kristina, to make sure to double-check her work. So if Molly says that she really feels strongly about this and thinks it’s the right decision, I think that’ll go a long way. I think TJ will take that to heart. But unless he’s on board with it, too, it’s a nonstarter.”

So, how do you see this playing out and what do you want to see? Are you in favor of Kristina being the surrogate for Molly and TJ’s baby? Are you for or against it, and what it could mean for long-term story implications? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
