It's A Wrap For GH's Steve Burton! On His Final Tape Day He Tweets Message to Cast & Fans!

After wrapping up 21 years as Jason Morgan yesterday over at the set of General Hospital, Daytime Emmy winner and fan favorite, Steve Burton posted a short video on his Twitter account of him driving away from his ABC Studio, his former home away from home, an image of the cast and crew having Black T-Shirt Day in honor of Steve’s last episode, and a farewell parting shot which we have posted here.

In addition, Burton send out the following tweet to his fans and colleagues, “One of the toughest days I’ve had. I am truly blessed to have spent time w/the cast and crew of GH. Amazing people . I will deeply miss u.”

“To you: the fans, thank u for enriching my life.  I am humbled by your love and support.  I appreciate all that u do for me. ”

As well, cast mates, Nancy Lee Grahn, Haley Pullos, Rebecca Herbst, and John J. York, all took to Twitter to say their goodbyes as well, and as we have previously posted, so many others earlier in the day.

So, it’s a wrap for Burton.   How do you feel now about his exit from the series?  How do you think the show will write Jason off the canvas?   Weigh-in!

I’m pretty neutral on his leaving. Tired of Sonny, Jason and the mob. Would have liked for him to stay IF they would have done a return to Jason Quartermaine storyline.

I agree, enough of the mob.

ITA, The mob story is Over! They had many opportunities to bring back as Jason Q but they never succeeded. Also it isn’t Like he hasn’t left before. He Left in 2001 and came back about a year later. Even Sonny has left and come back.

Sick of the mob as well especially Sonny. I am not saying eliminate Sonny but give him less air time. He is not the heatthrob he used to be in years past. His love scenes make me want to vomit his acting has gotten so bad.

Rusty
Guest
Rusty

the problem with the mob story line is that they are no longer scary or threatening. How many times has Sonny pulled a gun on someone, only to put it away unused? When was the last time an enemy of his actually disappeared after he threatens to make it happen? The writers have made Sonny an impotent leader. Where’s the story lines where he does something terrible and the current love of his life has to decide if she can handle his lifestyle? Remember when there was a dispute on the docks and Carly (played by Sarah Brown) jumped right… Read more »

sorry debi and vanessa but maurice benard and steve burton along with
tony geary are GH, the quatermaines are old news love them but they cannot
carry the show, with steve burton gone it will be a big loss for gh he is loved
by millions of fans including me. so sorry you feel that way but you are just 2 people and its your opinion.

Janice
Guest

Sorry Sarah but MILLIONS have silently spoken out about how much the mob, Sonny and Jason suck by turning off their televisions! GH used to be #1 and it’s never reached those heights under MB and SB. Sorry you can’t recognize that but your just one person with an opinion.

It’s a sad day for us fans, still hard to grasp. if this was hard for us (the fans) imagine what he must of felt. I don’t think he realized the magnitude or the impact he has made on GH. I only wish the best in his new journal, and here’s hoping that until the final curtain call for GH happens, he may yet again grace us with his presence.

This is a horrible & sad day. I wish Steve well! It will be sad for Carly & Sonny to not have their best friend. I will miss that so much. Get over the Mob thing people. It’s not even as bad as it was and HELLO it’s part of the canvas for years just like other soaps have even more ridiculous back ground stories. LOVE GH AND ITS THE BEST EVER RIGHT NOW!! Minus what they are doing to poor Dr Patrick with these horrid new Drs. & Nurse

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

I didn’t look at it this way…. nice post… especially… what with Carly and Sonny missing their best friend.

I’m sick of this “new” regurge story with Patrick…. the mousy cinderella with the “hot” feme fetale… so obvious… Dr. patrick doesn’t deserve this…. oye… it’s going nowhere fast. it’s a waste of good talent.

did elizabeth have something to do with the dna results? kinda took the thunder out of our sails… when Carly told Liz… get over it… Jason is not yours… LOL. and liz is still holding on to “nothing”.

SARAH
Guest

i agree patrick jason will be missed and sonny will seek revenge and the mob
storyline will go on , heck he is great (maurice) by himself and those dimples
man women love them me too. patrick needs robin back asap

and dump duke lavery asap

Whatever they do,don’t kill him lol. He will ride off on that Motorcycle I’m thinking

I personally loved his character and feel he was central to most everything on GH. Thought his character showed strength, incredible loyalty, compassion…subtle humor, HOTNESS! ;)…took Spinelli in when he would have been mocked by most…

So for me his character is a great loss. Sad to see him go but wish him well in his future endeavors.

I hope they don’t kill him maybe he will just go somewhere to decide who he was to be with. that would Steve time to decide if he wants to come back or if someone is going to replace him. Whatever Steve decide I wish him the best of luck he is a fantastic actor and many people will miss him very much.

i think he will catch sam in bed with john or he will catch them saying i love you, thats what i think, they will never kill jason off because he is a golden boy and steve might come back in the future .

What will it take for GH writers to listen to the fans when we say that we are tired of the mobster sl. I don’t watch it regularly anymore. Only from time to time, but when I do check in nothibg has changed – except they bring in more mobsters. Grow up already GH!

I HATE IT!!! I loved Steve Burton. I have watched this show since I was about 6 years old with my mom and I have always liked him. I loved that they were making his character more real and him and Sam together was amazing. I just really hope that he decides to come back. 🙁

I am tired of the Jason and Sonny haters. There has been no mob stuff lately. I will miss Steve Burton (Jason) so very much. I so wanted to see him with Sam one more time with their new baby. See Jason putting the baby in Sam’s arms and renewing their vows. The show will never be the same without him. I hope Steve will come back someday to GH. I am saddened by his departure. I am a huge fan of his. I wish him the best and hope to meet him one day. I so wanted Jason and… Read more »

Well, we all knew this was coming. When you think about it, 21 years is a long, long time. And he is still a young man. I don’t think he will have to worry about the next thing in his life. I believe it will find him! The baby issue will be solved either with Heather or Todd or Johnny. They will all crash. Or maybe the baby issue will never be solved unless when the child gets older, he or she will go looking for his parents. What ever happens, I will miss Jason….Good luck..Steve…

I love the character of Jason and he is so much more than just a mob hitman and that is due to the writing and to Steve Burton. I will miss him… but wish him all good things… but please come back every now and then. He could be off trying to find Robin…

I’m rather new to GH (came over when OLTL was pulled), so my perspective may be a bit different that those who have history with the show. Someone said Steve didn’t show any emotions, that his expressions never change. I watched a few episodes off my DVR yesterday and couldn’t disagree more. He’s a fine actor IMHO. I think “Jason” plays a big part in the story and will be missed. I don’t see all the fuss about the mob storyline because it doesn’t seem to infuse the show as the dominant theme. Sure, there are alot more characters on… Read more »

I wish he would have posted who he did his last scene with. I hope it will be with Sam and his son. I think he will leave town to protect his son. I can’t imagine any other reason he would suddenly leave town upon finding out he has a kid.
I guess if we see him on the set in the black short sleeve shirt we will know it is his last day.
I think this show has enough sexy men to carry on without him but I still will miss him.

I had the pleasure of meeting Steve on the set of GH back in 2008. What a gentleman! I have to be honest, he was the main reason i cintinued watching GH. Now hearing that Nancy is leaving, theres not alot of reasons ill continue wattching. I cant Even I MAGINE Sam ending up with John. That will do it for me.

To be honest, if I was Steve Burton I would have left too. That being said, he has always been my favourite so it is the end of General Hospital, not only for me but I’m sure for others. I read the sneak previews each week but I have stopped watching GH because bringing all these people over from OLTL has totally ruined it for me. OLTL was cancelled, why bring actors over from a defunct show and try to make it theirs. Just doesn’t work for me.

Tony Allen
Guest

If the actors from OLTL came over to GH, it is because ABC daytime made a huge mistake with the Revolution, we all know that. Forty three years and a show like that lasts less than six months. They deserve a chance to hone their
craft. Dont blame them for the mess ABC daytime made. Good luck, Steve.
Keep on rocking GH.

toney
Guest
toney

Don’t blame the actors from OLTL, they are just honing their craft because the ABC daytime people made a mistake after forty three years, they decided it was time for them to go and after less than six months, it was time for the Revolution to go too. So keep on rocking Steve, and good luck to to you and to GH.

Christy

I’ll miss him. He was a nice guy, great actor too. There are so many that have story lines that tie into Jason, I think I’d like them to recast the role, rather than have him killed off — especially if Robin is still alive. I can’t think the Jason would never find out his close friend is still alive and being held “captive”… glad they tied up the finding the baby was alive, but he still doesn’t know it’s his child.

Gonna miss Jason so much, good luck Steve!

The story line should stay open…I think they need to replace Steve Burton. Jason needs to find out about the baby being his and see Robin return. Lavery needs to go DOWN and Anna should take him to he!! and back for all that he’s done. @ Doris…..check with the networks…you’ve got a heck-of-a-concept going. I love it!!!!

WATCH: Nancy Lee Grahn, Jane Elliot & Kim Zimmer in ‘Covid Support Group’ Episode Two

Over the weekend, General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) along with her creative partner. comedian, Kaore Bonell released episode two of the hilarious send-up ‘Covid Support Group” which features Grahn, and two other powerhouses known for their performances on daytime drama: Jane Elliot (Tracy, General Hospital) and Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva, Guiding Light).

In episode two, Bonell and the three women are joined by a very special guest; when none other than former Los Angeles District Attorney, who tried the OJ Simpson Murder Trial, Marcia Clark, shows up!  We won’t tell you what happens, you’ll have to check it out to see.

Watching Zimmer as a boozy version of herself, Grahn with her brilliant comedic timing, and Elliot who is also perfection in this, is just too fun that every soap fan will get a kick-of, and even if you don’t watch daytime, think about how everyone is going stir-crazy during the coronavirus pandemic, and amp it up a bit and you have the genesis of this oh-so-timely series.

Best line of episode 2 was from Grahn:  During confessions during Covid, she says to the support group, “I bitch-slapped a guy who was hoarding toilet paper at CVS, does that count? Or does Erika Slezak get my Emmy for that, too?”

Watch Covid Support Group 2 below, and then let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below!

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.
