Ingo Rademacher who has been on again and off again as leading man, Jasper Jax on General Hospital finally spoke to ABC Soaps In Depth about his upcoming return to the series, which he took to Twitter to tell his fans and followers yesterday.

Now Ingo tells SID some of the details, where we learn that Jax’s return to Port Charles has been in the works for some time! Rademacher revealed, “We’ve been talking about it for a while. When I came back the first time — which was almost an extension of the contract in a way — you couldn’t really call that a “comeback” because there was no real time in between.”

According to SID, “The actor remains hopeful that the storyline will leave the door open for Jax to pop back into Port Charles in the future. “[Executive producer] Jill [Farren Phelps] has always been very much upfront with me with this whole thing,” he says. “She’s always had the thought that Jax was going to keep returning.”

When Ingo took to Twitter on Tuesday he told fans that GH has a story arc that will bring his presumed-dead character back to the canvas for about 3 weeks early in the new year!

I’m glad he’s returning. “General Hospital” desperately needs as many fan favorites as it can get, and he’s always been one of my favorites. As the tone of the show gets darker and darker; a male lead who isn’t so dark would be a welcome relief. My recommendation to “GH” would be to develop a long-term realistic storyline about the challenges of joint custody. Just “Jax” and “Carly” dealing with the fall-out from their divorce on their relationship as co-parents to “Josslyn” as they pursue new romantic relationships (“Carly” with “Shawn” is promising.) No mob, no killing, no plane crashes, just a human story that reflects the lives and issues many, many people deal with on a daily basis. There’s plenty of room for drama in that.

As long as they don’t make him evil when he comes back, all this talk about a serial killer à la Dexter, and that it is a character not on screen at the moment but was makes me afraid…

Back for what? Josslyn again? Rinse and repeat.

This arc is just going to be another way to prop Sonny… or even Michael for that matter.

Please let him stay away. I don’t see any further use for him for the time being.

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?
