Steve Burton Back To Work At GH!

Photo: GH Twitter

On Monday, the official General Hospital social media accounts announced that two-time Daytime Emmy winner Steve Burton has reported back to work at the ABC daytime drama series.

Burton, who previously played the role of Jason Morgan before his decision to leave the series after 22 years, and then sign with The Young and the Restless for the last four years, is back in Port Charles.

Now, just who will he be revealed to be playing when the story unfolds in the coming months?

GH Twitter teased: “You guys aren’t even ready for what’s to come. @1SteveBurton #GH #BackToWork,” is how the show captioned the pic..

So, excited to hear Steve is back in the house, and soon will be seen in upcoming episodes of GH? ? Comment below!

Ava is the real Julian! (once she gets his face after the surgery!) hahaha! Then Julian (the real Jason ala jimh) will have to get his original face back…ala Steve Burton…and Billy, who is the real AJ…well, if Sean’s not coming back…Billy can keep his own face!

Guess this means we’ll have to wait 4-6 weeks before he shows up on screen.

On Monday’s episode, Miller (in his scenes with Sam) had his styled very much like Burton’s. I’m assuming those were shot after the July hiatus. In his scenes with Julian, his hair was the way it’s been all year (which were probably shot in June, just before WdV’s contract break started.

That same thought crossed my mind, as well: his hair reminded me of the old Jason, wondered if it was to play into the upcoming storyline – or just playing with my mind, LOL!

Steve Burton’s new doctor character is also connected to the return of Nicholos Cassidine(played by the actor-forgot his name-who replaced Tyler)…he is the doctor who has been treating him!!!

That’s the only scenario with SB coming back that I could be OK with. If it were to mean Nick Stabile coming back on the canvass, bring SB on for a very short arc. Then he can move on to Days, LOL!

I would love for Steve Burton to be playing a doctor! That would bring another doctor on the canvas at General HOSPITAL, and that would solidify his past as a Quartermaine, while in medical school (before the accident).

Actually there have been 3 actors to play Nicholas,Tyler,Nick Stable and Tyler’s first replacement Colton Scott aka Stephen Martines.

It will be the same doctor who gave valentine his makeover and the same one that eventually Ava will also use to make her all pretty again.

“Now, just who will he be revealed to be playing when the story unfolds in the coming months?”

If he isn’t Jason Morgan, there’s no point to his return. Steve is Jason, Billy isn’t. Steve on canvas as a different character and Billy running around trying to be Jason? That will be a disaster.

I hope neither one is Jason…

After the way Ron Carlivati publicly treated Sean Kanaan (AJ) I don’t care one way or the other. I’ll always add my viewing percentage to the ratings but he could have stayed gone as far as I’m concerned. He does NOT define GH!!

It seems as though there are a lot of people who like Billy Miller as Jason with Sam (I have no preference, since I am not a fan of Monotone Sam). It would be funny to see if Steve Burton is finally paired with Rebecca Herbst. Jason and Elizabeth have always had a strong following. Again, I don’t really have a preference. I find Elizabeth dull and boring. I would like Steve Burton to return as a doctor. That would give a shout-out to his Quartermaine roots. Jason Quartermaine went to medical school before the accident. I actually like Steve… Read more »

Is there any way Susan Moore had another child? I can’t figure this one out so this would be the only guess i can give.

Steve
Guest
Steve

Since it’s been a few months, I’ll post my wishful storyline here. Susan could have had twins as Heather alluded to when it was believed Franco was the twin. Steve Burton would come back as the child who was born and grew up as Jason Quartermaine. Shortly after the car accident with a drunken AJ, Jason Q was switched with his birth twin. When this guy awoke from his coma, he had no memories of his previous life nor those of Jason Q. This twin didn’t relate to the quirks and demands of being a Quartermaine — thus creating Jason… Read more »

They tried to pass Franco off as his twin but they are only second. Cousins I think so who knows .

I had to think strongly on that one because my mind is going on me. I remembered that Heather and Scotty are Franco’s parents. Gotta be a case of turning 51 in a few days!!!

I see Steve as a deserter..
and he lied about leaving to be with family but went to Y&R.
I could careless that he back or whom he will be.
If it were my house I’d tell him to get out.

for those that are happy he is back, enjoy .. I hope you won’t be disappointed..

I’m more excited about this, than Steve’s return;

Actor Wayne Knight, known for his role as Seinfeld’s postal service worker, Newman, is heading to The Young and the Restless.

Unbelievable.

Just like Luke, he was always more interesting and easier to write for. IF Genie were to become the Godmother of PC and take Sonny down, she has a chance, other than something that ridiculous, her days have past her by because of her character, not her age. Maura and Nancy have done quite well.

Ah, the planets are realigned, welcome back Steve! I am not a fan of Billy Miller’s Jason BUT I do think Steve should play a different character AND I bet Steve would also like a different challenge. I like him being the real Julian Jerome BUT he may be too young AND I couldnt and wouldnt want to see him locking lips with Alexis! BUT, the real Julian wouldnt have a current relationship with Alexis. BUT Steve would be Sam’s father and that wouldnt fly! I bet one thing is for sure, him and Maurice are boys so it has… Read more »

Timm, I pretty much agree with you.
I love Billy Miller but think he was completely miscast as Jason. He should have been some long lost Q.
The way I look at Miller is the same way I look at Roger Howarth who was also miscast and what followed was writing unworthy of his talents.
I am a fan of both Billy’s and Roger’s but I am afraid when they are on the screen I am not paying much attention

@Timmm…..I honestly fail to see why so many have their knickers in a twist over Steve Burton’s return to GH….at least there is some sense of mystery and intrigue over who he will portray, and given that he is originally a GH actor simply coming back to the home roost, I find this overblown brouhaha regarding him to be really rather pointless. Before having a collective hissyfit, shouldn’t we see what his storyline is all about? I realize GH has a truly deplorable recent track record on such matters, but I’m willing to take a wait-and-see-attitude before automatically giving his… Read more »

Burton basically left GH for Y&R to follow his favorite producer Phelps. When she was dismissed some speculated that Burton would leave Y&R when his contract was up. And here we are……GH has some great actors on the canvas that they could not seem to do anything with and yet they bring back Burton and let go Budig to help offset the cost of having Burton back.

I hope that Miller does not loose his part on GH a few weeks into Burton return.

Is it too much to ask that we accept Mr. Burton as a popular actor in the GH universe, and he returns to the cast in a new role or as a recast in a legacy role long written off the canvas (Tommy Baldwin, Steven Lars Webber). I, for one, cannot stomach more mystery, plastic surgery, resurrection stiff. Any more only serves to make the whole enterprise seem foolish. That all said, I am sure the desired end game for current fans is he is Jason returned but what does that mean for nuJason and all those who believed it… Read more »

On the fence, as I like Steve Burton. Not a fan of the Carson/Monotone Jasam Show everyday, however. I loved Vanessa Marcil, and I thought her return back in 2010 was written very poorly, and the acting was terrible (and I was a die hard fan in the 90’s). Hopefully, Steve’s return will not be disappointing, like Vanessa’s, and like a sequel to a really, really great movie. We shall see…

Just to establish a timeline, Steve’s return was announced in June when Jean P was still with the show, so that means she helped create the story and helped write his re-introduction to the canvas. But now that he’s officially back at work, and she has been replaced by Chris Van Etten, anything written from now on is “Crelly” material. Hopefully the material is consistent given the writer swap. He probably won’t be back on canvas until late-September with how the show tapes about 6 weeks ahead of air. As for who he’ll play, I’ve said before that I can’t… Read more »

Todd Howarth’s Franco could be the real Jason. Burton could be Jason’s twin. Billy could be the real Franco! LOL…one guy had amnesia, the other had a tumor and neither had all their memores. Could be the epitome of Helena’s mind fu…errr…game!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
