General Hospital’s Steve Burton revealed during his interview on the new On-Air On-Soaps Podcast that something kind of shocking is set to happen to Jason.  Burton previews, “I know that Jason is going to make a pretty crazy choice in the next month or so, but it’s like you would understand it.  We will see what it is.  That is all I can say.”   The soap star also reminded listeners that Jason also has another battle looming on the horizon, so the mob hit man has to be careful not to oft the wrong person because one of Sonny’s knee-jerk reactions. “Remember we have the looming “Franco”, and if I do kill somebody, then he is going to kill somebody innocent.  We might not have ethics, but we have our own code of the ethics ,so we are trying to follow this code.”

Burton also weighed in on the Drew Garett/Chad Duell, Michael Corinthos switcheroo that will finally take place on-air this coming Monday, April 19th.  “First of all, when anyone loses a job it sucks for anybody, but when it’s someone on your show, and one of your own, its kind of sucks twice.  Drew was a great kid, good actor, and the red tape that goes on upstairs I don’t really get involved with.  When you are dealing with anyone’s job that is s not for us ( the actors) to know.  It’s for them to know until that day, I guess. But it is always a hard position.  It was hard how Drew left and probably was not the best timing.  When Drew got here he was thrown into the fire and had some great scenes with me ,and Maurice Benard, and Laura Wright.  Now Chad Duell is coming in of the culmination and the pinnacle of the story. Chad is a great kid and can act. It s always odd switching anyway, i.e. from Lucky to Lucky to Lucky back to Lucky. It’s a lot of pressure for Chad to come in under in the middle of a big story, and people not wanting to like him. He  has done a great job so far. So I know at first people have their opinions, and closed arms to somebody, but so far I can tell you he is doing a really good job.”

Steve will be at the Stagecoach Festival in Indio, California next weekend with the other stars of ABC Daytime meeting the fans, while the top stars of country music including, Keith Urban and Sugarland will be entertaining the throngs on the main stage.

Wow, is Jason going to choose to be a father to his child??? I doubt the people in charge will allow that unless said child is taken from his mother.

The craziest ‘choice’ Jason has made was taking that woman back after what she did to his son! THAT was the beginning of the end of GH for me. This version of JM is NOT a likeable or rootable character.

Jason needs to man up and be a father to HIS son. This crap with mykill makes me sick when he has a child of his own he SHOULD be concerned with.

Wonder if the IIC realize how much they’ve turned fans away from this character in the past two years?

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.
