Sean Blakemore Reveals Exit from General Hospital

The soap rumor mill is often churning with fans of daytime drama, but tonight, Daytime Emmy-winner Sean Blakemore (Shawn, General Hospital) took a moment on his Twitter account to clarify the speculation that he was let go from the ABC daytime drama series.

Blakemore revealed that it was his decision to leave the show at this time, but left the door open for a return down the line.

When responding to a fans question on his status with the soap, Sean responded, “I appreciate you and ALL my wonderful supporters! I was absolutely NOT let go. It was my decision to exit the show because of other obligations. The GH family has been great to me! Who knows whats to come in the near future 🙂”

From the looks of recent scenes, it seemed that in story, the character of Shawn Butler was headed for a romance with Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn), but if Blakemore is exiting the show, looks like things are taking a different turn.

On Friday’s episode, Shawn told Alexis that some west coast newspapers are folding, and he’s thinking of buying the company, all in effort to grow The Invader’s reach. However, to do that, he would need to move to San Francisco and be based out of there.

Shawn would like a reason for him to stay in Port Charles, and Alexis can’t quite give him the answer he needs in that moment, since she hasn’t been involved with anyone since Neil died.  So, we shall see how this plays out on-screen.

For the meantime, what do you think about Sean leaving GH? Comment below.

I thought it would be a great thing for them to bring Shawn back, but honestly they haven’t used him very much. Can’t say that I blame him for looking for work elsewhere.

It’s ironic though that he went into the newspaper publishing business, right around the time that his old job in the “coffee business” opened up again…. for the same reason it did the last time he had it – the supposed death of Jason.

If he had re-applied for that job he might have had more airtime… at least until Jason makes his way back to Port Charles again.

Or maybe – cynical side of the Devil talking here – they didn’t think they could sell the idea of a past relationship between Shawn and this new Jordan recast, who looks young enough to be his daughter.

There was never much of a storyline once Shawn got out of Pentonville. A very talented actor, who will find much work in primetime.

Missed opportunities in building out his familial ties. Could’ve easily been Phyllis’ brother.

How about staying to be with your son!!! This is so stupid!!! With them bringing Jordan back, just recast the role!!!

I wanted to see a triangle between Sean, Curtis, and the new,beautiful Jordan.

The new Jordan looks like she would be in a triangle between Mikey & Chase. She would look like Shawn’s daughter.

Yea, wished I looked that good at forty. Perhaps that is a very old photo.

This seems like odd timing given that they just recast Jordan, not to mention Taggart will be back soon too. It seems like GH didn’t know what to do with Shawn since he was released from prison, and I wasn’t too invested in a romance with Alexis. Hopefully they’ll keep him recurring and he’ll pop in from time to time.

I don’t want him to leave

Maybe if some time had been taken from THE SONNY & CARLY HOUR, Shawn could have had a story besides taunting Nikolas. But the writers’ priorities once again are obvious.

Alexis needs shawn to be there she loves him and they are cute together and he is so sexy

I love his character and was over the moon when they brought him back. We only got to see his here and there. I want a major story for him so bad.

Waited so long for this great guy to come back, then he’s here only long enough to save Alexis’s bacon and he’s off again. Will miss you Sean, I was looking forward to big things.

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?

Haley Pullos Attempts to Strike Deal with Prosecutors and Change Plea to “Guilty” for Lower Sentence in DUI Crash Case

At a hearing this week, the attorney’s for General Hospital actress Haley Pullos (ex-Molly) and the LA District attorney met with a judge in Pasadena, California who was informed the parties were working out a “potential settlement.” Pullos did not attend the hearing.

Haley is allegedly attempting to negotiate a deal with prosecutors, that if she changes her plea to “guilty,” that she would receive a lesser sentence which could result in limited or no jail time. Another part of the negotiation could potentially give Pullos a suspended sentence or house arrest.

Currently, Pullos is facing up to three years in prison after she pleaded ‘not guilty’ to a DUI and a second charge for a hit-and-run. Pullos was in a near-fatal car crash back in June of 2023, when she drove the wrong way on a Pasadena freeway while she was under the influence. and crashed into a another car.

The other driver, Courtney Wilder, was rushed in critical condition to a local hospital to undergo emergency surgery, and is now suing the GH actress in civil court, plus seeking damages for negligence. Last month, Wilder allegedly added Pasadena’s No Comment Lounge to his lawsuit, where reportedly Pullos was working as a hostess the night of the accident. Wilder is accusing the nightspot of plying Pullos with liquor, and then allowing her to drive home in her car, which later caused his injuries.

After the Wednesday February 28th hearing, the judge has now scheduled yet another hearing on April 8 which he said ‘should be the final’ one.

According to the Daily Mail, “Deputy District Attorney Melany Avanessians told Judge Smerling that if no plea agreement is in place by April 8, ‘we will send her to a preliminary hearing’ meaning Pullos would be on her way to a full trial.”

Since Pullos’ legal troubles, GH has recast her role of Molly Lansing-Davis three different times. First with Holiday Mia Kriegel, and she was followed by Brooke Anne Smith. The latest Molly, Kristen Vaganos, seems to be a keeper at the moment during the Molly, TJ (Tajh Bell0w) and Kristina (Kate Mansi) surrogacy storyline.

Pullos joined GH as Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and Ric Lansing’s (Rick Hearst) daughter back in 2009 and was with the show till the  summer of 2023 prior to the car collision.

What are your thoughts on Haley trying to change her plea to ‘guilty’ to receive a lesser sentence? Let us know in the comment section below.

Steve Burton’s ‘General Hospital’ Return Previews Jason Has Blood on His Hands

Monday, March 4th is the day that Steve Burton returns to General Hospital in the pivotal role of Jason Morgan. The story of Jason’s re-emergence on the canvas has been kept under wraps.

However, PEOPLE has a first-look photo, and in it, Jason has blood on his hand. Not only does he have crimson on him, but he is dressed in black and standing behind a dumpster.

When viewers last saw Jason it was back in November of 2021, when a tunnel collapsed on him as he was attempting to save his brother Drew (Cameron Mathison). For the past two plus years, every one in Port Charles has believed that Jason had died.

Burton’s initial run as Jason was from from 1991 till 2012. After exiting and signing on with Y&R to play Dylan McAcoy, the actor eventually returned to the daytime drama that was his home in 2017. Later, during the Covid-19 pandemic, he was let go from the series by the end of 2021 for not adhering to the Disney/ABC vaccine mandates at that time.

While away from GH, he rejoined the cast of Days of our Lives in 2023, resuming his original soap role of Harris Michaels that he played in 1988 and the year prior on the Peacock limited-series Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapter Two. With the tape schedule well ahead of streaming, Burton will be doing double duty for a short term, where fans can catch him on DAYS, and now on GH.

Fans should also make sure to catch today’s Friday, March 1st episode of GH as Jason’s return story begins to unfold.
