Courtesy/ABC

This week on General Hospital, Sam and Jason are finally reunited with their son, Daniel!  After all the twists and turns, can JaSam finally find some happiness and be a family?  That is the question as we go through this pivotal week on compelling episodes of GH!

However as many know, the time is drawing near for us to say goodbye on-screen to the beloved Steve Burton whose final episode as Jason Morgan is said to be airing on Monday,  October 22nd.  How do you think it will end for Jason? For JaSam? How do you think head writer, Ron Carlivati and his team plan to handle Burton’s exit on screen?

For clues on Jason’s exit, or perhaps a red-herring, watch this week’s promo from ABC for General Hospital after the jump!  Then let us know your thoughts!

If they kill him- as much as I want to support soaps… I’m gone. I thought if they were smart he’d leave for a while to try to get out of the mob, and then he could come back with another face in time or whatever. Or maybe Steve would decide to make occasional appearances. If he’s dead or presumed dead, I don’t think I can watch anymore.

I love GH and will always watch it although Steve Burton’s character was the main reason I keep watching. I love the Sam/Jason story line. After seeing the movie Savages…….it’s clear to me that they should recast with actor Taylor Kitsch. He would make a great Jason.
It took time…………but the new Carly fits the role to a tee.

No pretty boys please………..need hardcore ………..tough and good looking man!

There are a million different ways to let this end.Whatever they decide to do there needs to be a recast.There’s lots of unemployed actors from the soaps no longer on air to pick from.Could give this character a whole new twist.

no way no one can replace steve burton, and i am sorry for all the soap actors
who have no jobs but so do the rest of the good ole usa

just cause they are soap stars it makes no difference

i support all soap that are still on air

I agree with you completely. I don’t think there is an actor out there that can fill his shoes….. Especially when it comes to his relationship with Sam. The love they share and the chemistry they have together on screen is irriplaceable . They just can’t kill him off. And as much as I no he has a family and life we need him on the show

The JASON character has eaten up more screentime than any single character on GH. Month after month, year after year, he has been the beloved pet of the show. Women worship him on the show while men cave to him. The favouritism TIIC have shown for this character has rotted most of the stories and I have been sick to death about it to the point where I shut it off completely a while ago and haven’t looked back! Ever the benevolent hero, never the violent, emotionless, criminal he really is, I am A DECADE past sick of the ass… Read more »

I am not looking forward to Jason/Steve’s departure, but I was hoping that they would have him involved in some mob thing, and to keep his son and Sam safe, he would leave the country, but if his last air date is October 22, 2012, I don’t think there is much time for that to play out. I honestly do not want to see him killed off, and while in my mind, there is no one who could play Jason as Steve Burton has so pefectly for the better part of the last 21 years, I would rather they recast… Read more »

I don’t want him to be killed off either…….I would rather have a re-cast also…. Don’t
kill off this character completely…That woudn’t be right…..He better not be killed off
that’s the wrong way to go…Sam & Jason &son should ride out in the sunset together………………………………………….

Everybody knows the outcome of this come on nothing original he appears to die in gunfire. What other option you are not going to recast no one would want that and this leaves him with the option to come back if he wants. I saw today’s episode I must say a little disappointed but not surprised at the lack of compassion for Tea this was not her fault but then again I have never been a huge Sam and Jason fan I do feel they deserve each other two of the most selfish self-centered people on this soap.

Kira
Guest

How was there a lack of compassion? Sam actually said she feels bad for Tea. She even let Tea say goodbye and told her thank you for being a wonderful mom to my son. Why else do you expect?

I don’t think they’ll kill him off………..I think he’s going into the witness protection with John McBain’s help. Then he’ll be able to return if he so chooses down the road. Will he be missed? Absolutely !! The show will go on………but he leaves a huge hole. GH is very good right now……..the new writers have done their homework…..kudos!

Marisa
Guest

Duke could also keep him hostage the way he has robin that way when Steve burton is good and ready he can return as Steve burton because I don’t think anybody could fill Jason shoes after 21 years he isn’t just a character in the show he is Jason Morgan the one and only

I’m trying to remember what Gh was like without SBU (jason)? I’ve watched since the 80’s and watched him be created! This feels like losing something big not as bad as OLTL but kinda as we are counting the days down like we did OLTL! I know I will not be able to watch GH if they put Sam with John just a bitter fan on that one pairing, as a Jolie and a Jasam fan…..They brought John over and inserted him right in the middle of Jasam’s long awaited story and totaly trashed Jolie in the most horrible way… Read more »

After watching today’s episode,and the dastardly Duke telling Joe Jr. after his botched attempt at killing Kristina – some one else must die…..
I’m hoping that’s NOT how they’re going to exit Jason….. 🙁

On another note I hope they resurrect Sean Kanan as AJ Quartermaine,
since he is returning to the show.

Jason, Sam and the baby have their moment as they agree to salvage their marriage. The two adults recommit themselves to having a honesty and loving marriage. The phone rings interrupting their union. Its Carly who says she needs him now (she found out about Johnny attempt on Sonny’s life and Todd’s role in baby Daniel’s kidnapping). As Jason hangs up the phone, he looks at Sam and he fills her in on the conversation (Carly’s hysterical). Jason says that he’s not going, but he was staying put with his family. Sam sees that Jason is serious, but in her… Read more »

What upsets me , is this Steve’s desires or GH. If its GH., I’m pissed. I love Jason. I’ve been watching this
Show since Jesse and Steve in the 1960’s. Please consider the fans more than money.

Steve and Jason had a good long run. Good for him to want to get his kids to a nicer place to live. Good luck, Mr. Burton. I wear black t-shirts in your honor, lol. Even though I’m better looking.

My guess is Sam gives the baby up for adoption to Tea. Can’t weigh down and action character like that. As for Jason. We’ll see what happens.

I also am feeling a Trevor St John vibe….all the use of the name Victor…..something’s bubbling.

susan M.
Guest
susan M.

I don’t think Sam will give her baby to Tea for adoption…I think she will keep the baby…………………Sam will her keep her child as close as possible to her..She won’t let that baby get out of her sight ever again…………….They will be attached at the hip……………………………………………………Again Sam will keep her child as close as possible…………………………………..The baby belongs with his real mother……That’s what I think on this subject….

I could accept a Sean Kanan recast but it will take time, but it would allow for the Quartermaine thread to continue. I am guessing GH employs the chestnut Jason turns up missing to save his wife’s and child’s lives. Or he has to go undercover a la witness protection to escape death. The possibility for return — other than resurrection — is necessary with this legacy character. We already have one aked death — Robin — on the canvas.

Judy R.

I’m hating to see Steve go, but I don’t hthink he’s going to be killed off the show; perhaps he will be assumed dead so that he can return someday. Probably will be some storyline about him leaving in order to protect Sam and baby Daniel. Just hope he gets to know that the baby is really his instead of his brother, Franko.

I will definitely miss Jason (Steve). I was hoping that this was just stunt for more publicity, but, I too will not be watching the show. I am a JaSam fan til the end. This is what make fans want to leave daytime and thsi is why GH is going down because he is a big part of the show and I believe they will see it soon….first Robin and now Jason. I believe they will haul him off to,prison for pushing Heather off the roof….time will tell….Fay

i don’t think a recast would ever work. Steve is Jason and a recast would be a mistake, but they could have him fall into the water. That way if Steve decides to return he can. That way we know he is alive and well somewhere ! If they kill him i will not watch again.

I gradually stopped caring for the Jason character after sending Brenda out of his apartment and it was like he abandoned her after that Brenda’s character seemed to get attacked and destroyed. I hate the Sam character that is so evil, self centered, and intellectually stunted with her puffy baggy face trying to take Brenda’s place all the time. Sam’s supporters are so rude and violently predisposed that they are hard to stomach, living in their own world by re inventing the story lines that did not even happen. They skip scenes because they only like the violent parts and… Read more »

Well, I cant say that I will still continue to watch GH. I DO NOT think he can be re-cast because no one will ever be as good or be able to replace Steve, it will not fly with the audience. This storyline with Jason and Sam is one of the MAIN reasons I have watched GH aside from Sonny and it was one of the BEST, it was GH. Bringing back old faces are a plus…but not the same and will never be as good as they once were,,,example Duke. His acting is horrible and he is not the… Read more »

This is crazy and has to be because of a contract break down.

Let him come back on the shore or something in critical condition and let him live and continue to do a role he has masterfully done. He was there I believe when I started watching @ 10 or more years ago. I really hope you bring him back. I think loosing Bernie, and Jason… Read more »

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

Photo: ABC

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Courtesy/ABC

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Photo: ABC

Tabyana also discusses working alongside GH co-stars, Maura West (Ava) and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane), and what it was like taking over the role of Trina from popular fan favorite, Sydney Mikayla.

Check out the full chat with Brook and Tabyana below.

Do you want Trina to end up with Spencer or Rory? Will the jury exonerate Trina? What was your favorite part of the conversation with Brook and Tabyana? Let us know in the comment section.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Photo: ABC

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

Photo: ABC

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Photo: ABC

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

Photo: ABC

Share your congratulations to Kin on his 45th anniversary in the comment section, and then let us know what has been your favorite Scott Baldwin scene through the years. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out our interview last year with Kin on the Michael Fairman Channel below.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

Courtesy/ABC

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
