Things heat up this summer on General Hospital as the lone ABC soap tries to get itself set for its new September time slot when it moves into the hour the used to be held by One Life to Live.

In the romance department, there is Heather’s fixation with Luke, (if you call that romance!),  Starr and Michael, Todd and Blair ( with Kassie DePaiva returns!).  Then comes revenge department with Heather yielding a syringe and John and Sonny having a confrontation, and last the revelation department with Todd finding out it was Jason’s kid who he switched with Tea, the identify of who Trey really is, and Johnny admitting, “I’m guilty alright!”  But then at the end of the promo, comes Patrick seeing Robin!

Now with all the quick intercuts and edits, there is more to decipher and more going on.  See if you can weigh-in and let us know what you think is going to happen the rest of this summer on GH?   Watch the promo after the jump and follow along!

Well it all looks good….especially the kiss between John & Sam! (Don’t care if it is a flashback or yet another kiss-can’t wait for these two to be back togther on my screen!) McBam!

It is a new kiss 🙂 !!
John is on the left … last kiss John was on the right..
WHOOT WHOOT love John and Sam !!!!

DITTO! Their chemistry is undeniable. It’s still there from the Port Charles days of Caleb and Livvie. Hope the writers pull out all the stops and let them sizzle! I say let Liz have Jason. I always liked those two together. The way the story is unfolding, looks like Liz still has a thing for Jason. Not even the good doctor Keanan with his charm and MD after his name can take her mind off of Jason.

Looks like a fun time at GH. Can’t wait!! Hope Robin is coming back,she is greatly missed

We need Natalie for John
Sam & Jason are better together.

I’ll agree Jan!

heard that Olivia is being killed off, hope it aint true, not a fan of all these murder storylines.

Really? I hope not, shes one of my favorites. I’m Not liking all the murders either.

I do like Olivia, but could this be a “storyline dictated” murder plot trade off to have Heather ? Looks like a great storyline for Heather… and think that Olivia would /will give a remarkable fight before losing out to Heather.

Hope Olivia stays – really like her!

Todd and Blair!!!!! I can’t wait.

Actually, as much as I always rooted for Todd and Blair, I’m thinking a Todd and Carly hook-up would work well. Does anyone else agree? Your thoughts guys?

That wouldn’t work for me. Except for one time with Tea which he immediately regretted, Todd has only wanted and been with one woman, and that is Blair. If he hooked up with anyone else, the character Roger worked so hard to create would be compromised. Roger left OLTL a few times when they tried to make him some sort of romantic hero, and both he and Susan Haskell balked when the TBTB wanted Todd and Marty, the woman he raped, to have a relationship. As for Carly and Todd? I wouldn’t not want to see that and if it happens, I won’t watch.

always like todd & blair, but i’ll watch him no matter who he ends up with!

robin is greatly, greatly missed. and viva todd & blair!!!!! ron carlivati is getting better and better….

Can’t wait! Looks awesome! ( But I’d still love a little Natalie &Liam in the mix).

Me too!

The Robin scene is Patrick hallucinating from the meds he is getting hooked on I think!!

I think so to, Would be so nice if Robin could come home.

You guys could be right. I’m hoping that Robin does come back and we find out who’s behind her disappearance. Helena perhaps?????

Hey Barbara T… I just read that GH is currently casting for a blonde, blue eyed little girl, in the 3-4 year old age range…. Do you think that is Hope???? I heard some old family faces were going to show up (again) I don’t know if they meant that forger, or Robin, or what. What do you think?

I figure so as well… maybe she’ll tell him to knock off the drugs!

It would be nice if Hope is alive, I know the One life to live fans are not happy about her death or Coles. I have no clue about the old family faces maybe the quartermaines that would be nice to spend time with them, They still are being ignored, their not on enough. I have no idea, cant wait to find out more.

John belongs with Natalie! They barely got back together before OLTL ended, and they deserve to be happy for a while, especially since John has a beautiful baby son with her! It would be too heart-breaking for me if John moved on so quickly!

That’s exactly my feelings and I want that little red headed girl that we were always teased with to be a part of the family also!

I agree with you Tali, I would also like to see john and Natalie have that little girl with the red hair, I never forgot that, and when Nat was pregnant I though she would have a girl and she didn’t, hopefully that will happen when General hospital goes to landview in the future or better yet when we get One life to live back.

I’m assuming Jason Thompson is playing Patrick right (as you can tell, I don’t watch GH)? If so, wasn’t he supposed to leave the show and do some other projects? I did read that he was stepping away from GH to go some other stuff.

the actor who played his brother Matt was going to leave for projects, then they just had his character go off to prison, so he’s off the show completely.

hadn’t heard about jason leaving tho.

Robin I doubt is back so soon. Like someone said, Patrick is hallucinating or something. Also like McBam. Jason is boring WITH Sam. Also, some fan favs coming back I heard. Frisco? Duke? Can only hope..

love the new promo! more todd, please! 😉

I hope he figures out a way to make things right regarding the baby deal- – without getting himself in trouble. something airtight that will only have heather in trouble!

laughed when he burst thru the door to fee Luke… dressed like Jason! That is like Jason, from Friday the 13th! that was so funny!

that should read “burst thru the door to feed Luke”!

I’m sorry One Life to Live was canceled But I think is best travesty That General Hospital characters are being pushed to the side. No one cares about Star cause if they did One Life to Live would still be on. Do us a favor before we lose General Hospital send them back to Landview and maybe you should have been more concerned about keeping Steve Burton in Port Charles than losing your best actor to The Yong and the Restless…

Steve Burton Confirms ‘General Hospital’ Head Writer Switch Changed Jason’s Comeback Storyline

General Hospital viewers will see today, Monday, March 4th, the beginnings of the return storyline for Steve Burton and his character of Jason Morgan.

Just how did the recent head writing regime change at GH alter the plans for story for Jason’s comeback? As had been rumored, seems plenty. Back on January 22nd, it was revealed that Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor had been replaced by Patrick Mulcahey and Elizabeth Korte. At that time, Burton had already signed-on to return to the daytime drama for the first time since being let go towards the end of 2021.

Speaking with Soap Opera Digest, Steve confirmed that what we will see on-air is from the new head writers and that the direction of the story changed, “So apparently there was a whole different story planned and then the head writer switch happened and then they kind of rebooted (the story arc). I know Patrick (Mulcahey, one of the new head writers) a little bit, but I really know Elizabeth Korte (who was promoted to co-head writer).”

Burton added, “There’s no one in the building that loves that show, knows the history of the character, and is invested in it 100 percent than Elizabeth. There has never been a more deserved promotion, ever. Once I know that she was (one of the head writers), I was like, ‘Oh, this is gonna be good! I cannot wait.’ And it has been exactly that. Everything has been amazing.”‘

In addition, during an Instagram live on Monday with his podcast and comedy show partner, GH star, Bradford Anderson (Spinelli), Burton also commented on the upcoming story arc which brings Jason back to Port Charles. Steve expressed, “The story is not going to disappoint. The scenes are super deep. Frank (Valentini, EP, GH)  and the new head writers took some time to really think this out.”

Burton, being a longtime veteran of the soaps, said Jason’s return is not just isolated to be about him. “Great story on daytime should involve a myriad of people across the board and where it effects everybody,” he shared. The popular fan favorite feels that this story delivers on all levels.

So, what do you think about the head writer change and how it prompted the plans for Jason’s return? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

Jason Cook Recalls Landing His Soap Roles as DAYS Shawn-Douglas Brady and GH’s Matt Hunter

Daytime fans remember Jason Cook when he became wildly-popular as Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Bo’s (Peter Reckell) son, Shawn-Douglas Brady on Days of our Lives from 1999-2006. He later made a brief return in the role in 2015 for the series 50th anniversary.

After departing DAYS, Cook was offered a role on General Hospital as Dr. Matt Hunter, the younger brother to Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) from 2008-2012. However, during his time on the soaps, and after, Cook has been focusing on his behind the scenes roles and passion as writer and a director of feature films.

Last week, the Michael Fairman Channel welcomed Jason, along with two of the stars of his latest film, Four for Fun, Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Jacob Young (ex-AMC, B&B, GH). During the conversation, Cook revealed his continued admiration for the soap medium and the actors who work in it, and how it came to pass that he landed his parts on Days of our Lives, and then on General Hospital.

Cook spoke on becoming the on-screen son of soap opera’s most iconic couples, Bo and Hope: “I auditioned for Fran Bascom. She was the Days of our Lives casting director at the time. I was never a great auditioner, I don’t think. She made me feel really comfortable. I remember that screen test. And then, I remember when I got the part, I was actually working at a company at a desk job. I got the call at work and I just screamed, and at the time I didn’t quit my job. But then, I got that contract when I was 19-years-old and it totally changed my life.”

But, was Jason aware how key to the show being Bo and Hope’s son would be? “Yeah, my older sister was a fan of the show. She definitely let me know that I better not mess it up, because I was gonna ruin her favorite couple,” he shared. “I remember she printed out the family tree and it looked like a physics diagram. It was so complicated. A lot of detailed work went into it. But, I was excited.”

After being a known entity with a large fan following, eventually Cook made his way to a new role on General Hospital. Jason explained, “GH was fun. That was a situation where Brian Frons (ex-ABC Daytime President) brought me over there. I just told him I didn’t want to be like or want to do Shawn. He’s like, ‘Well, what do you wanna do?’ I said, ‘How can I screw things up around here and shake things up?'”

Photo: JPI

From that conversation things began to formulate. Cook revealed, “We started talking about the TV series House. I think in soaps, there’s an assumption if you’re going on a show that everybody wants to be the hero. I was like, ‘I don’t want to (be). I want to screw everything up.’ And then, they wrote it in that Matt Hunter burns the hospital down within like six months. I was like really proud about that. The other part that I loved about that character is that Matt, and his older brother Patrick (Jason Thompson), were both neurosurgeons. And if you (an actor) resigned your contract (with the show) you go to Patrick, you see Patrick. And if you don’t resign your contract, you see my character, because my character was going to kill you every time.”

For more on the interview, make sure to check out the replay of the livestream conversation below with Jason, Brytni Sarpy and Jacob Young.  Now let us know, did you enjoy Jason as Shawn-D and Matt on GH? Do you hope someday he might return on-screen to the soaps? Let us know in the comment section.

THIS WEEK on GENERAL HOSPITAL: “He’s Back” as Jason Returns; Sonny Sets His Trap for the Shooter

Monday, March 4th is the highly-anticipated return of Steve Burton as Jason Morgan on ABC’s General Hospital. In the newly-released weekly promo for the series, in the final moments of it, you see a man with his hands-up about to turn around which looks like it will be revealed to be Sonny’s former hitman.

In the promo, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), Anna (Finola Hughes), Spinell (Bradford Anderon) and others are intercut looking shocked at who they find on the pier with voice-overs of characters saying, “It can’t be”, “It’s him,” etc.

The story has been building as to who has been behind the shootings seemingly targeting Sonny (Maurice Benard), Selina (Lydia Look) and others related to the mob. When they locate Jason … is he the Jason we knew prior to the tunnel collapsing him towards the end of 2021, where he was believed to have perished? How is this all connected to the intel that Olivia Jerome was apparently killed in prison?

Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) and Drew’s (Cameron Mathison) relationship has shown its cracks. When Carly eventually sees Jason, will it eventually pit brother against brother for the love of Carly? And in this case, is Drew going to be portrayed as the bad guy due to his issues since his time at Pentonville which has shown he has become more obsessed with revenge on Nina (Cynthia Watros)?
