Steve Burton Tweets He Just Re-Signed With Y&R As GH Teases That Jason Is Alive!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Today as fans of General Hospital watched the story begin to reveal itself for Kimberly McCullough’s (Robin) exit storyline, viewers learned that according to Victor Cassadine (Thaao Penghlis), Jason Morgan is alive and in a cryogenic state!

Victor showed once again Jason’s picture to Robin, which got curious fans on Twitter to ask Steve Burton directly if he was by any chance returning to General Hospital  to reprise his role of Jason or, is he continuing to stay on The Young and the Restless as Dylan McAvoy?

Chris Burgess tweeted from @CBRVA  @1SteveBurton Are you still under contract with #YR, Steve? They showed your picture as Jason on GH!”   To which Burton replied, “Yes, just re signed.”  And with that, it should put an end to any rumor that Steve is returning to Port Charles any time soon.

So, what do you think of the news that Steve is staying put at Y&R?  Were you hoping that he was returning to GH?  What do you think of Victor using Jason to pull at the emotional strings of Robin to get her to do the Cassadine dirty work?  Weigh-in!

Steve please come back to GH! We miss Jason Morgan. No one else can play the role better than you. I have tried watching you on Y&R and your story lines are just boring. We miss the action and super couple of Jason and Sam. I will always be a fan of yours just waiting for you to move on from Y&R.

Send Steve Burton back to GH. On GH he shines as a character. On Y&R he fades into the background (Yawn). Very boring storyline.

Amy

Cherie

I don’t think its a trap I believe Jason will return. I’m thinking the photo is of Steve because you can’t show a new Jason cuz there isn’t one yet & would really be stupid to show a different pic to Robin it wouldn’t make sense ~jmo~

Why did Victor show a picture? Why couldn’t he just say Jason’s name?

Cherie

Jean absolutely no-one takes a Cassadine word. Robin would never just say “ok Victor just let me pack” but it dies seem like he had more than just a picture

Why would SB leave Y&R he has been there a year non stop story they have made it so he can commute he has stated he is very content. I really am sorry that KMC/Robin came back they have done nothing but make a mockery out of her character.

Agree about the character of Robin. It might just be me, but it also seems to be that she’s more “bitchy” than the Robin everyone feel in love with over the years. I’m not suggesting she be a wuss but it just doesn’t seem the same.

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

I absolutely, LOVE, KM’ Robin

for all that she’s lived

HOWEVER, it’s not just me…. to me… she seems uncomfortable, now,
doing, the acting thing

i’ll simply chalk it up… to… her passion… directing… is her forte

Scrubs…. “sigh” is one for the history books

dare, I say… Dr. Drake was humane the other day…. with

drum roll

LOL…. “Britt”

I just hope it’s not back to the same ole, same ole…. Sabrina

I apoligize to the actor…. you give more… with Carlos

SZima
Guest
SZima

I agree with you about Kimberly…I was never a big fan of Robin, and I never wanted her to come back, but this “return” has completely destroyed the character for me. The best thing they could do would be for Robin to really, truly die so that Patrick and Emma can move on with their lives. Especially if it’s true that she won’t be back for at least a couple years.

Tali
Guest

Frank & Ron are great at destroying beloved characters, for example John McBain and Natalie Buchanan. It just depends on what they need fom the character…..they have no loyalty to the characters fans or history.

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

well… i’d be pissed… because of love for the storyline… she and Patrick created….

so… i’d rather see her kidnapped… and, if he goes back to Sabrina

for the fans… it’d be like one step forward 2 steps back….

ugh! please, no.

victor cassidine… should give her an injection… of memory loss or something… if they are going to go the science fiction route

just dont’ kill Robin off… it’d be too much

Harry
Guest
Harry

Don’t you understand that Robin’s return has been written in such a way as to destroy her character so fans can finally accept Sappy with Patrick once and for all? This was Ron and Frank’s intent.

‘Gossip’? No. Heartless screwing with the fans by Frank and Ron, yeah actually. Assuming your right of course. I’ll give TPTB the benefit of the doubt until it’s obvious that they were screwing with us. Rule #1, don’t dangle fan favorites in front of GH fans if you can’t back it up or you’ll face serious backlash and outrage. It’s really a betrayal to the fans if it’s some kind of a joke.

Pen

Oh, please. I’m just as loyal a viewer as anyone, and it was nowhere near ‘heartwrenching’ for me to see that picture. Exasperating is the word I’d use. As it is, however, I’m fine with Jason being used as a story construct to facilitate Robin’s exit. Works for me.

There are just too many gullible dorks our there. SB will not return to GH. He signe a ew contract with Y&R. A new actor will play the roll of JM. The character will havd had a face transplant and a story line to go with it. Best bet for the roll is MM who is without a contract since Y&R let him go. But, the JM character will be written back into life for the sole purpose of writing it off the books. It;s the same blue print as is for the Robin character. Now, if JM is kept,… Read more »

Matthew
Guest
Matthew

Well he didn’t deny a GH appearance. Maybe Y&R would be willing to loan him out for a single, brief GH cameo to coincide with Robin’s final day of her GH stint. Ron and Frank have achieved the impossible before and Jill Phelps seems like she would be willing to make that gesture for one scene. In other words, if this isn’t the case, I’m ticked off because that is screwed up to tease the audience to this extent. It would seriously damage my opinion of the integrity of Frank and Ron.

Pen

That is about as likely a scenario as chocolate rain in the Los Angeles basin.

Matthew
Guest
Matthew

So your telling me there’s a chance! Seriously tho your probably right. I don’t think that’s fair that he’s on that boring show that all the oldsters watch and GH still teased a comeback. Now I’m going to ffwd all the Dante/Lulu scenes to pay them back. I’d quit watching altogether but I’m too addicted.

I highly doubt that JFP would allow Steve to go back to GH for any reason.
Other shows have been OK with actors doing that…DOOL with Eileen Davidson to Y&R and Wally Kurth to GH…but they also aren’t contract players, whereas Steve is. I don’t recall a “contract player” doing any crossover work.

Not to mention that no one in the soap industry has the reputation for pettiness to the extent that JFP does.

He could be under a gag order by the heads at abc and gh. You get offered enough money, you will do as your told. Gh also had to get permission to use his image.

Pen
Guest
Pen

No, they actually don’t have to get permission to use his image for that. They do have to pay him for it, though. And if he says he signed with YR, I tend to believe him. I don’t think he’s under any sort of ‘gag order’ from ABC. *snort*

Terry
Guest
Terry

Gag orders have been in place before. As for permission, I bet your right. And it’s not clear how long the contract is..

Pen
Guest
Pen

They have, but that’s extremely rare, and requires legal action to do so. Also, there’s no extant reason for ABC to gag him, nor would they have any authority or leverage to do so.

If I’m not mistaken, I believe Burton stated he signed for two more years at least.

Luke
Guest
Luke

Of couse SB is staying on at Y&R – with MM and BM gone, JFP is free to cement Steve Burton in as the leading man on the show, just as he was when they were both on GH – The have already given Dylan the coffee house and made him Nikki’s son, it won’t be long before all of Genoa City revolves around Dylan – just like it was with Jason on GH – that is the reason I stopped watching that soap and started watching Y&R in the first place, and now history is repeating itself.

SZima
Guest
SZima

And when that happens, I will probably wean myself off that show.

Sharonda
Guest
Sharonda

I don’t know why he signed another year to Y&R…but then again I have stopped watching Y&R since BM & MM left-the real actors. SB doesn’t have any range, and to be quite honest the role of Dylan should have gone to someone else because he is written very poorly. But even the worst dialogue can show an actors range from his emotions alone, and he doesn’t give that. But that’s JMO. I’m grateful he’s not returning to GH!

jaselovesam
Guest
jaselovesam

Glad he’s staying on Y&R….Sam and Silas are OUTSTANDING together…Michael Easton and Kelly Monaco are like acting soul mates. By the way…Steve Burton’s departure from GH hasn’t hurt GH’s ratings a bit…in fact…they’ve improved.

Barbara
Guest
Barbara

I beg to differ Steve’s absence has created a huge void and GH is Not the same without him. KM can leave though I don’t like her anyway and I want Patrick back with Sabrina. As for Sam and Silas I hate them together she belongs with Jason!

Sharonda
Guest
Sharonda

@ Barbara, SB IMO was dead weight, no void to fill, but he did give room for others to play a role, if he wanted to be sideline, why go to Y&R and be on everyday. He shouldn’t even be in the opening credits on Y&R.

patricia

Phil

Agreed! Sam and Silas are much better than Sam and Jason! I think Sam would stay with Silas anyway… Kelly Monaco and Michael Easton have way too much chemistry to waste such a thing!

Pen

I agree; I love Sam and Silas; they’re wonderful together and have a beautiful dynamic together. Plus, Silas treats her with more respect than Jason ever did. And I categorically regard the idea of ‘belonging’ to one person only is utter codswallop.

Im thrilled that he is NOT coming back to GH. I adore Steve, have since I was a kid watching him on Out of This World, but GH is so much better now that Jason is gone. It become the Jason show. I just hope they don’t recast, cause I don’t want to get back into the Jason show. I want to see the talents of ALL the other actors. Kimberly could only be on GH for a short time, so they had to give Robin an excuse to leave town, Jason is a good excuse, lets just hope nothing… Read more »

When Jason comes back there WILL NOT be JFP around writing or directing for him so GH will not become the the Steve Burton show the way Y/R has. GH def needs Jason back. Billy Miller will be perfect lets go RC & FV. We are def ready for a Jason return.

KMB
Guest
KMB

Exactly. Why can’t TPTB of all soaps realize that letting one actor or actors dominate a soap eventually will lead to boredom and lower ratings? Even fans who do adore an actor or a couple on a show do not want to see them 24/7. This usually also causes resentment by every else and they turn the channel for sure. It’s happened over and over.

Sharonda
Guest
Sharonda

I think Billy Miller should be a Quatermaine from Jimmy Holt’s side of the family. We don’t need Jason, he was Alan’s affair with Susan Moore and she’s dead, and that’s how he should stay.

KMB

KMB

I would love to see Billy Miller play any part. 🙂

Joe Wells

I agree completely with KatieK. The one thing I am having trouble with (given this storyline) is the ease in which Robin will likely leave Emma. Okay, I can see that she can justify the situation (Patrick is a great dad, he moved on with his life with Sabrina, She (Robin) can’t work with Ulbrecht, I’m sure Robin will discover that Sabrina’s baby is Patrick’s, etc.). BUT, how will she justify leaving Emma EVEN to rescue Jason?

Elhu
Guest
Elhu

I love Steve Burton, and I enjoy his character on Y&R, and while he will always be Jason to me, I did not think he was going back to GH, and I get it, his Y & R role (Dylan) is versatile, and he gets the schedule that works best for he and his family, but wouldn’t it be funny if Billy Miller takes on the role of Jason, now that he is no longer on Y&R? Again, Steve Burton will always be Jason to me, but I can see Billy Miller giving that part do justice for sure.

I hope Michael Muhney is cast as the nu Jason Morgan on GH. Steve Burton is a waste on Y&R I would FF through all of his boring scenes prior to quitting the show as a watcher/fan. JFP has literally ruined what was once the number one soap in daytime. GH and DOOL are much better now.

Verna

I agree, Toscanti, Steve Burton is SO BORING ON Y&R. GH should do better than that and hire Michael Muhney. He is bound to send ratings soar sky high and be a big asset to the show. I stopped watching Y&R after JFP made it a laughing stock and have been watching GH. I’m keeping my fingers that I will see MM there sooooooooooooon!!!

In a perfect world YR would loan him out for just a day so he could film one scene where Robin goes into the lab to see Helena, Stavros, and Jason in cryo before Victor closes the door behind her.

Reagan

I wouldn’t say that Burton would NEVER return to GH– as a lot of people have left certain shows over the years & make surprising returns later– but have no hopes of it being anytime soon. They don’t have to bring the character of Jason back until “Robin” makes her next return, and by then they can say it was all a Cassadine trick or recast. I understand why so many people don’t like the idea of Burton being on YR as a “Friend of Jill” and will agree that Burton is limited in the type of characters he can… Read more »

Since I stopped watching Y&R after Jan 30th he can stay there. Michael Easton and Kelly Monaco are outstanding, entertaining, exciting together as Silas and Sam. GH is better without Steve Burton and and the ratings are good so he can stay with JFP at Y&R. I don`t want Jason to be back but it will be interesting if Michael Muhney takes the role. But if MM is ever going to be cast to play any role at GH it better be someone new.

Cherie
Guest
Cherie

We all knew he wasn’t going to leave Jill. Good for him. He’s a better Jason than Dylan any way. I also think he was a better actor on GH. He’s just not doing it for me on Y/R. With that said. You did choose sides Steve. Good Luck w that. Bring on Billy Miller. Jason needs to go on & everyone is replaceable. Even Steve Burton. If you love Soaps as I do as long as it’s a believable storyline, I always give replacements a chance for the stories sake.

Apparently signing a contract at Y&R doesnt mean anything. Michael Muhney had signed a new contract in April/13.

Pen
Guest

Contracts definitely do mean something, but generally when the circumstances involve accusations such as those levied at MM, the contract has a void clause. It’s not uncommon. And it doesn’t mean you can just ‘walk away’ from a contract. Please.

Glad he is staying on Y&R ! GH is a sinking ship and if he went back they would just wreck Jason like every other vet. Maybe all the vets should head over to Y&R.

Pen
Guest

…sure, if you call a sinking ship steadily increasing ratings (which started rising after Cartini took over an then also surged almost immediately after Jason died), placing within spitting distance of taking over B&B’s spot, and gaining on Y&R. The show has had consistent gains over the last two years and began hitting the 3M viewer mark in October—and then continued hitting that number and above each week since then. Which, by the way, is a viewer total it had not achieved since 2002.

Hardly a sinking ship, sweetie. Check your facts.

Um, sorry, but the numbers most certainly DO mean something, and I think the network would beg to differ with you. 😉 And the numbers had started going up long before KM was back on the show, and have continued an upward trend. Meanwhile, there are still many vets still on canvas; not “all” of them are “jumping ship” by a long shot. In fact, Ric Hearst just debuted yesterday, which is in direct contradiction to your claim! Hughes, Grahn, Geary, Benard, Wright, Monaco, Zamprogna, Herring, Elliot, Buchanan Shriner, York, Wagner, and Lindstrom are all still very much on canvas,… Read more »

Well, no way could having Steve Burton return to GH make the show worse. It was pretty terrible back in the day when his emotionless mug, along with Sonny’s orange one, were the center of the show, but these days he wouldn’t even be noticed with all the awfulness of the show.
And his underacting would be a welcome relief to the ants-in-his-pants, bugs-down-his-back overacting of Roger Howarth.

Imagine that — a father figure who isn’t a criminal, thug, and sociopathic killer, emotional abuser, philanderer, and all-around misogynistic, self-absorbed jerk? Who would actually be able to raise kids and not try to pawn them off on others or force the mothers to put them up for adoption because his job is too dangerous, but a job which is also more important to him than any offspring he might have, so someone else has to make the sacrifices so he can do what he wants?

I never believed SB was going back to GH— but I do believe at some point in time they might recast the role of Jason— his frozen state and experiments on him at the clinic could explain away why he would look different. But at this moment in time, I don’t see any place on the canvas for the character Jason— maybe if Sam and Silas ever get married, they bring him back to stop the wedding— it seems to be the thing to do in soaps, bring back th “dead” to stop weddings during sweeps week, but other than… Read more »

He isn’t going back to GH because JFP being in charge of Y&R will make sure he is on every single episode. The people in charge at GH like mixing up the characters so what reason would he have to go back.

I actually agree with Matthew. I believe they could use him for one quick shot to show he is actually alive. Then, like they did with the Robin character, not show his character again for a year or so. By then, he can come back to GH, or they can recast the part and people won’t be so angry. It makes a lot of sense.

Rose

People are tired of GH and their little tricks, doesn’t make sense, The way they have set it up for the reason why Robin is leaving GH, and they could try to find a look alike for Jason, and let him find his way back to PC he could have had amnesia after the gunshot and just now regaining his memory, Robin could be taking a job at another hospital until they get rid of the New Chief of Staff.

I agree 100% with you Jill. I really liked Jason and Sam, they were great together and it took awhile for them to really hook up.

How does GH even have the ability to show Steve Burton’s photo? They must own the rights to the “Jason” character. But with him under contract to another network, how can ABC show his actual picture? It would be the BEST thing for GH if Steve would come back, but if you read his Facebook posts, he is very happy with his family in Nashville, and can fly into L.A. for filming. It seems ABC wasn’t willing to let him do that, and his family was most important to him. Steve Burton KNOWS his GH fans will always support him!… Read more »

Why would Burton come back? As soon as Ron and Frank were at the helm, they started destroying the Jason character in order to prop up John McBain in order to make it okay for Sam to leave Jason for McBain.
Hmm…destroying a veteran character in order to prop up another character? Seems to be a pattern for Ron and Frank.

I think that was bad. Everyone hated that they removed him in the first place.I get to see him on Young and Restless but his role is not really him. I want to see him back with Sam.

Speak for yourself. I was perfectly happy to see that character exit the canvas. Who’s this ‘everybody’ you’re talking about? And they may not recast the role or bring the character back at all. 😉

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”
