The big announcement that fans were expecting came this afternoon on CBS’s hit daytime talk show, The Talk, when General Hospital favorite Steve Burton confirmed that he will indeed be playing Avery’s Ex, war hero, Dylan McAvoy on The Young and the Restless!

During the conversation with the ladies of the The Talk, Burton revealed that the deal to come to CBS Daytime was hard to pass up once it was arranged that Steve could back and forth to be with his family now relocated in Nashville, Tennessee, something Burton did when he departed his role as Jason Morgan on General Hospital.

In addition, Steve mentioned that he, Y&R executive producer, Jill Farren Phelps, and film star and frequent soap star guest, James Franco are working on a telenovela and are in talks with Sony Television.   Of course, Sony owns The Young and the Restless!

When discussing his new character of Dylan, Burton revealed Dylan is an war veteran who did two tours of the Middle East. By trade he is an architect and he has to take over the family construction business because his father sustains a serious injury.    Burton says he is trying to grasp how Dylan will deal with his demons from the war, and that he knows his new character has a bunch of secrets, and he is coming to town looking for somebody special.

Burton’s first airdate on Y&R will be January 29th!  After the jump, watch went down on The Talk this afternoon when the ladies of the panel: Sara Gilbert, Sheryl Underwood, Aisha Tyler, Sharon Osbourne and Julie Chen welcomed Steve Burton to CBS Daytime!  Then let us know what you thought of Steve’s comments and his decision to join Y&R, and if you are intrigued by his new character of Dylan McAvoy?

If he is happy and about this decision, then that is great. If he is Jill Farren Phelps little puppy dog, then screw him. When Jill gets the ax, Steve will either leave and or get the ax. And General Hospital should tell him “Not Interested, Goodbye”

I don’t walk in his shoes………but I think he should have been honest to his fans of all these years………I don’t watch Y & R……..and I doubt I’ll tune in because of him.. In my eyes, he is still Jason.

he was honest … he did what he said he wanted to do and was going to do…
so what if he wants/decided to have a different job. and to leave Jason behind, good move on his part…
good luck to Steve!!

I am actually impressed. I don’t watch “The Talk” but I do watch Y&R and sometimes B&B. The treatment he received was so welcoming, to say the least. He seems to have genuine energy and excitement about his projects. And he wasn’t wearing a Black T-shirt! He looked great and presented his projects with great enthusiasm. I am going to be positive for Y&R and its fans, and continue to enjoy GH without him. Lots of excitement in the soap world today! YEAH!

I actually agree with you. People say “The Talk” is just “The View 2.0”, but for the 4 or 5 times I’ve watched, it’s really a much friendlier, less volatile environment than the ABC competition. They treat every guest the same, CBS affiliated or not. They brought out the confetti, a banner and even mentioned GH and his long history there. The View never even mentions other networks when their stars show up, they always say “…check your local listings”. He seems really excited, so I’m happy for him. I was never a fan of Jason or Steve’s so his… Read more »

I agree Heidi. I am very happy for Steve too, as he seems so excited about all of the things he is working on, including going to Y & R. I too, would prefer he go back to GH, but it is his choice, and from what he said today, it certainly sounds like they offered him all the perks he wanted, so good for him (and you are absolutely correct Heidi, in this economy, that is an even bigger get)!!!

I think he is actually going to be a new love interest for Sharon Case even though he is Avery’s ex at least I hope so, it is time for Sharon to move on from the Newmans. I think also he has a job in politics if this falls apart. He knows how to really dodge the questions. Lol! Word of warning SB do not admire people too much as you do JFP they will dissapoint you.

Sharon Newman needs to find herself and establish a new path for her life AND THEN she can become romantically involved. To watch this fine actress work a storyline about her rise from the ashes and coping with a very real mental illness ON HER OWN would be an inspiring plot and give much needed redemption and stengthening of a very damaged character. I want to see her reach out to others and serve instead of being a victim needing saved.

Well stated, Iakovos. I would love to see THAT story for Sharon.

I can understand Steve’s decision to try acting another character. Playing a one dimensional mob character would get tiring rather quickly. Good Luck on your new acting endeavor, Steve.

GH is doing well without Steve and his departure has actually freed up screen time for others as although I liked Steve on GH…I thought JFP overutilized him and some others.

Karen

I completely agree with you, Michael S! His departure also allowed the return of Sean Kanaan as AJ which has re-energized the Quartermaine clan and given Michael new depth.

I think someone should have hosed down Sheryl- I felt uncomfortable for SB when she straddled him like a horse. I might have misunderstood what I heard, but based on his body language I got the impressed Sony strong armed this guy into doing Y&R in order to have his night time project go on. He did not look thrilled at all- he seemed to be trying too hard to be excited. I know so many GH fans think he went behind their backs, planning this all along, but based on what I saw today, more than ever I believe… Read more »

That’s an intriguing thought, Mary SF. I didn’t get that feeling, so I watched the intro again. I think he might be uncomfortable, if at all, because of all that estrogen! Ha! Ha! Maybe he wasn’t really prepared for this junket. I agree with you about Sheryl, though. It’s funny because of the behind-the-scenes feud with Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete getting fired because they were considered “too ghetto.” Sheryl acts too childish, but to each their own. 🙂 Maybe Steve was bored. I remember the rumors were flying the minute he wrapped at GH about him going to… Read more »

Perhaps strong arm wasn’t the word- but I think he does want to do other things like produce, and doing a favor for the people who are thinking of helping you develop a project is just common sense. A little you scratch my back I’ll scratch yours is a possibility. Like I said I may have misunderstood and I don’t know him well, he might hate press gigs, but he didn’t look like a man who just got the job he was dying to get.

Thank you for saying it Mary SF… I was thinking… but decided not too. If Steve was uncomfortable about anything it was Sheryl jumping on him and generally attacking him! He could have been hurt… she is like a Volkswagon beetle jumping him… someone should have restrained her! He has seen crazy in fans before but to expect that a co-host would behave the same way was very unsettling! He’s been… as he said sitting on his porch in rural TN and then to go and have her behave like a looney would have made any sane person uncomfortable!!! CBS… Read more »

I’m with you Mary SF re., Sheryl jumping on him. That was beyond SO inappropriate to do to a marrier man with 2 small children. I’m sure they were watching or will be. She is no small girl either and Steve is not a big man. I thought he was very gracious in the way he handled it. I like Sheryl, but that was SO wrong. I’m really happy for Steve. I can’t imagine as an actor playing the same character for 21 years and going to the same job. He’s a man on the move with a good head… Read more »

To those of have said he was lying about his plans when he left GH, why would he? Maybe ABC wouldn’t give him the appealing deal that CBS/SONY did. And also 21 years is a whale of a long time in one role. Happy times on TY&TR Steve!

I really think that Frank Valentini and GH would have given him the same deal he got over at Y&R. Some people felt he was pissed because every story line wasn’t about him any longer. I thought that was ridiculous when I first heard it. Now, I’m not so sure. What I do know is he slapped his fans in face by not being honest. So much for being with his family etc., etc..

Now some fans are acting as thou Steve left own purpose to hurt them. He has the right to seek employment somewhere else, as do other citizens in this country. It’s done everyday.

Why go to all the trouble of repeating yourself interview after interview saying these things if what you are really in search of is a change, or… Read more »

He didn’t specifically state that he and GH discussed him being able to communte back and forth from Nashville to Tennessee. He just said he wasn’t able to do that before, but didn’t elaborate. I wonder if that was actually discussed. If he thought he could do that with GH, why not negotiate it? Just because he’s friends with Jill Farren-Phelps isn’t a good enough reason to accept her offer and betray his GH family and the fans by jumping ship. If Jill offered him something that wasn’t discussed yet at GH, he should’ve told her, “let me see if… Read more »

“Saved”? Really? I agree with CR, that Maria Arena Bell was horrific, but Jill Farren Phelps is hardly a soap savior. It’s been a few months and all she has seemed to do is fire actors that people loved and bring on new people who are unneccesary and unfamilar to viewers. She should have adapted Frank Valentini’s approach by bringing back beloved characters, putting vets front and center, while integrating the younger set gradually. Instead, Nick is on a non-stop cooking show with Avery, Sharon seems to be completely healed of her “bipolar” (which is very disconcerting that Jill, who… Read more »

Betty, this was a great post! I think that SB did not like that he was no longer front and center every single day and did not want to participate in the “ensemble” feel (which a good soap SHOULD be!) that GH has taken on. So he went with someone he knows will give him as much screen time as he wants. If it was about scheduling, it could have easily been worked out. Frank and Ron have done it for numerous GH actors, including Kimberly M. who left, just as SB had. For people to say that he doesn’t… Read more »

First of all, how dare you tell him to stay at home with his famliy, you
know nothing about his life. And so what if he quit because he doesn’t like his boss, my god how dare he do that. SB has every right to go where ever he wants. By the way he didn’t lie, did you miss the part where he actaully moved. And calling people stupid because they
spend money to see Port Chuck is a rotten thing to do.

Show is still not that great and does not deserve to be number 1.

Well, he is an actor wanting to practice his craft and playing the same character for 20+ years, especially one as removed and stiff as Jason Morgan, probably got pretty boring. I think its an exciting time and can’t wait to see how he’s going to play this new character on Y&R.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Courtesy/ABC

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.

Briana Nicole Henry on Her Decision to Exit GH: “I Decided It Was Time to Move On”

On Monday’s episode, GH viewers learned that Jordan will need to start dialysis and treatment at a specialty clinic in Albany from kidney damage and suffering renal failure.  But on Tuesday, fans of the ABC daytime drama series learned that Briana Nicole Henry has left the show, all her decision, according to her post on Instagram.

A Daytime Emmy nominee this year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category, Briana shared the news on her departure expressing: “I suppose it is that time isn’t it. As I celebrated my third year of being on General Hospital yesterday, I also watched my last episode as Jordan Ashford air. People kept asking me how it felt to have ended my time on the show, and it wasn’t until yesterday that it really sank in, as I watched Jordan’s goodbye to her family and knew the tears you saw were real tears between not just colleagues but friends. I decided it was time for me to move on from @generalhospitalabc and I got nothing but love and support from everyone involved. Not to mention was given the most beautiful send of that left me quite literally shaken.  I’d like to take a second to thank every single person in my @generalhospitalabc family that helped me make GH my home over the last three years, especially @fvalentinigh . From the crew, to my cast mates to our security guard Emma, there were multiple people on any given day that brought such a smile and warmth to my heart.”

Briana finished her post with, “When I started GH it was my first opportunity as a series regular, and to get the opportunity to throw myself into Jordan for the last three years and work with some truly incredible actors has been an honor. Thanks for holding space for me to grow. I am a better actor because of the time I spent within those walls and will forever be grateful for the way the show nurtured and challenged my ability.  To the fans, it took me a while to win you over, but once you saw my heart you made me feel so much love. I hope I brought something unique and honest to your beloved character of Jordan Ashford, she’s one helluva woman. Until next time loves 👋🏾.”

This will be the second Jordan to exit General Hospital.  The role was originated by Vinessa Antoine, and Henry took it over for the last three years.

So, sad to see Briana leave GH? Should the show recast? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Jason asks Carly to Marry Him and She Responds “With All My Heart”

The stage is set now for General Hospital’s Jason/Carly/Sonny/Nina story to explode as things heated up between longtime friends and former lovers, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) just as Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is in Nixon Falls pleading with Nina (Cynthia Watros) to come clean and tell “Mike”(Maurice Benard) that he is indeed, Sonny Corinthos.  Here’s what went down on Friday’s episode …

Back in Port Charles, at the demolished former “Jake’s”, Carly and Jason’s old stomping grounds, Carly and Jason share a kiss. Carly says she can’t believe this is happening after letting him know that all of her old romantic feelings for him are starting to come back. Apparently that is true for Jason too, as the ABC daytime drama series finally reaches back into the history of these two characters who were in love, before Carly slept with Sonny.  Back in the present day, Jason asks Carly to marry him, and she responds, “With all my heart.” But now, Carly is starting to feel more excited about what started off as a business arrangement between the two of them to retain the Corinthos family hold over the five families and the territory in Sonny’s absence.  Carly says she wants their wedding day to be about them, and later they can come to Jake’s just by themselves.

Courtesy/ABC

In Nixon Falls, Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is trying to get through to Nina, who has admitted her duplicity to him and how she has fallen in love with “Mike”.  When Jax informs her that Carly and Jason are getting married, she thinks that’s great then she and “Mike” can have a future together.  Nina wants Jax to just forget this conversation, and seeing Sonny, and do this for her; after all she went through in losing her child, Nelle, and her relationship with him. Then Jax asks her to think about Donna and Avery and Wiley, his children and grandchild, who don’t know he is alive and will never get to know him. Nina cries that Jax has won, and that she will tell “Mike” the truth in private (but something tells us, she is going to make “Mike” walk-in on Jason and Carly’s nuptials, so that she has a shot of keeping him all to herself by the betrayal he will witness).  Jax says he is not leaving Nixon Falls till she tells Sonny the truth, but she somehow she still got him to leave through her pleading to let her do this alone.  As Nina thinks “Mike” is walking in the front door of the Tan-O, in walks Peter (Wes Ramsey)!

Meanwhile, Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is rushed to General Hospital unconscious with Portia (Brook Kerr) not far behind, after being trapped together.  More bad news is revealed when Austin (Roger Howarth) gets the blood results back for Jordan and tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) that Jordan’s levels of carbon monoxide are 58% which is not good for someone with one kidney.  Austin relates that if Jordan’s kidney function doesn’t improve, they’ll have put her on dialysis.  TJ (Tajh Bellow) comes to see his mom, and sits by her bedside in tears.  Later, Curtis breaks down in tears holding Jordan’s hand to come back to him, and she opens her eyes, as Portia walks in on the scene.
