Steve Burton’s GH Return Airdate Revealed With New Promo! Is He The Real Jason Morgan?

Courtesy/ABC

Mark your calendars for the highly-anticipated return of General Hospital fan favorite, and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Steve Burton.

In a newly released promo from ABC, first shared by TV Line, Burton is seen riding on a motorcycle in full Jason-mode leather jacket out of the fog. Now, the question remains … are these clues that he is indeed the real Jason Morgan, since there is another Jason Morgan on the canvas played by Billy Miller? Vegas betting odds have that General Hospital is about to deliver a Tale of Two Jasons storyline, but are they?

Look for Burton’s return to GH on the Tuesday, September 19th episode of the ABC sudser.

After the jump watch the Burton returns promo, and then let us know, what you think will go down when Burton arrives back on the scene in story? Share your theories in the comment section below.

It’s pretty pitiful that someone at GH thinks bringing Burton back is necessary to get ratings up. What does that say about the writers’ inability to work with the great actors it has? I never cared for Burton in Jason’s role; I’m very happy with what Billy’s done in the role.

And with actors having been let go to pay his salary…GH – you should learn to write good storylines with your existing cast. Much more talented that Burton. Gee, let’s all be sure to tune in to see this guy ride a motorcycle…good grief.

I agree Max. Billy Miller is doing an amazing job in the role of Jason. I really hope that he will continue in the role and not get pushed out to make room for Burton. Additionally, I also wonder how long it will take until Steve Burton gets bored and once again decides to leave.

Oh Max, thank You! I’m up to here with the Biblical return of one-emotion Steve! I adore Billy and he is so much more natural and creative an actor than Mr. Burton could dream of. I just hope Billy isn’t sidelined for the “non-event” of the year.

Why does every soap writer keep referring to the resurrection of Steve Burton as “the highly-anticipated return of General Hospital fan favorite?” HE. IS. NOT!

If they bothered reading all the comments from the fans, they would realize that the MAJORITY of them do NOT want SB back…especially as ‘Jason.’
(Obviously there are some die-hard fans out there that do, but they’re the minority.)

This “highly-anticipated return” will be a HUGE disappointment, I guarantee!

The more I think about this the more I believe Franco is twin to either Jason 1 or Jason 2, albeit Jason 2 is much younger than the other two…..How about triplets? LOL. I may be proven wrong, but I do NOT think the two Jasons are twins. The root of this imbroglio, I think, sits squarely, and perfectly on Helena’s and… Read more »

At 1st when they said he was coming back I thought he was going to be the person taking over for Sonny. Now I think he is either Jason or the other boy in Franco’s picture….. It will be nice to see Steve Burton but I hope they keep Billy Miller on the show as well 🙂

Celia
Guest
Celia

Hi, Elizabet,
Haven’t “seen” you in a bit….Yes, I agree. This is what’s so interesting—the unknown. It seems simplistic, right? That’s just it. You hit the nail on the head. Either Jason could be the boy in the picture.
I am not well-versed in the Susan/Jason/Alan Q history, but the possibilities are tangible, yet not so plausible? Only in soaps. LOL.
As long as the story follows a semblance of order, I will accept what is offered.

Rock and roll, indeed, CeeCeeGirl!!! And if we are treated to those two mortifyingly bad mamas, Helena and Heather, in the process, then all the better!

It’s in the touch, my friend….n’est-ce pas? Rebember when I asked, …..Will the real Jason, please stand up?…or a facsimile. Anyway, I was the ONLY one who made the connection with Franco….everyone else, especially one or two, the most, insisted that the two Jasons were twins. Look back….right… Read more »

Something’s weird! Why did they not show Billy Miller in the hospital the other day, only the characters visiting and sitting with him. The camera never went to his face, only a hand. I happen to like Billy Miller as Jason now. I’d rather Steve Burton play someone else.

Mary SF

Often it is done to give the lead actor some time off– if the character is in a coma and his face isn’t really needed they will use a body double– seen it done lot of times on soaps for these bed side vigils —

Wasn’t Billy Miller still in contract negotiations when these scenes aired? I mean I know he has since signed a new contract but I am not sure he had at the time they were filming these episodes? Not a fan of Burton as Jason, so hopefully he plays something different… otherwise it’s a been there done that resolution to a been there done that storyline!

I have been saying this from the beginning, Karen. Thank goodness, I am not the only one who thinks the same thing. Everyone was saying that the two Jasons are twins. That may very well be, but, the age fits better with Franco and Jason 1/Steve. Who is Jason 2?? At last a level of mystery!! Better than the fare we have been fed lately. The downside?

Good premise, Jimmy. I love it. I bet Helena is having the time of her life in Vermont ( or is it New Hampshire?), with Larry, Darryl, Darryl, Bob and the gang. LOL. She put this in motion…I see Helena written all over this switch, or whatever it is….with a little bit of Heather.

@CeeCee….On the series finale of “Newhart,” it ended with Bob waking up in bed with “Sitcom Wife #1” Emily Hartley (aka, the late, gorgeous, classy Suzanne Pleshette….) in which his zany Vermont-based comedy show—and #2 sweater-clad wifey, Joanna!— were revealed to be just a dream of Dr. Bob’s wild psychiatrist’s imagination!!!!! It was quite inventive, amusing and well-received….way before your time, of course, but try to catch it when you can! (Sorry to spoil the surprise plot twist in advance….).

Hope you enjoy it just the same when you actually view it!

Too funny!!!! That’s a different show, Tomas. The sitcom to which Jimh is referring was the “inn-keeper” one, I believe….also, starring Mary Frann and Julia Duffy?

No Celia, you’ve got that all wrong. There was The Bob Newhart Show and then there was the Newhart show. The former starred Suzanne Pleshette as Bob’s wife with the latter starring Mary Frann as Bob’s wife.
It was the end of the Newhart show in which Bob suddenly wakes up only to discover his first TV wife, Pleshettete. So Tomas was not only funny with his comment, he was also right.
It’s before my time too but thanks to TV Land I am well versed on old sitcoms.

Hi, Katiek,
You may get your wish, albeit not in the form of Tyler.
But, could the masked man, in Russia, be Nikolas Kassadine? What was the reason for breaking Valentin’s framework?
I noticed the name Nikolas with a very Russian surname—is it Nikolas or a relative/ancestor? Too much of a coincidence.
Do the two drops of blood from Valentin’s finger mean anything? An omen??

Celia
Guest
Celia

I must add that if the masked man is, indeed, Nikolas Cassadine, he, definitely, is not Tyler. This guy looks tall, with long legs….not stocky. So, it would be another actor portraying Nik. A sleek, tall one.
The same applies for Burton….too short and stocky.
Could it possibly be Morgan?….as in, Bryan Craig? But, he wasn’t shot.

Hmm…possibly he is the real Jason or Susan Moore gave birth to twins or Heather gave birth to twins.
All I know is ,when Robin was at the Cassadine labs she was treating “Jason” unseen.
One would assume that “Jason” looked like Steve Burton.

Celia
Guest
Celia

I think, you are on the same train of thought as I, Lisa…….I may be wrong, of course, but I do believe Heather is the one who gave birth to Franco and Jason/Steve. I think they are twins.
And, Jason/Billy is a Q, borne of Susan. I did not watch then, but I read the history inside out and “everywhichway”.
That is the crux of the mystery. What happened?

With all the crappy stories on GH right now, I cannot see how “Fans” can openly criticize Steve Burton’s return? I cannot wait. Its SOMETHING to look forward to on this show besides the horrible Man Landers, Nelle’s mysterious background or Morgan’s YEAR round mourning story, of which by the way, of one of the worst characters ever! [Not discounting Levi, though!]

I agree and people the only reason SB left GH was mama bear JFP offered him the moon and the stars she started the roller coaster ride. But if you indeed make him the real Jason oh so much back story viiewers have to ignore. A lot better story a twin no one knew about and it drives everybody nuts because he looks like the Jason they all loved. However I have very little faith that’s what they will do.

I don’t mind his return because the “baggage” his character brings cannot be ignored….sounds climactic, in my opinion. And, if we are afforded a look-see at Heather, I’m all for it. Also, when Franco was questioning Scotty about the boy in the picture, Scotty seemed evasive to me…..giving all kinds… Read more »

They are both really great actors and Billy Miller also left Y&R to another show. I am not sure what the difference is. I don’t think its anything personal. I am sorry you feel deserted. I enjoy the soaps also, but I don think any actor, or anyone in any line of work should need to get approval or give reasons why they whatever they choose to do.

I agree su0000. I’m not happy about Steve Burton’s return. And the way he left, telling everyone he wanted to spend time with his family, at least until JFP called. Then suddenly he had all the time in the world to do that. And now that Billy Miller has been established and praised in the role of Jason, then suddenly Steve Burton wants to come back and create a commotion and a lot of uncertainty. Yeah, I’m not amused nor delighted by the return of the great Steve Burton one little bit.

Here are the cliches I am praying the writers will avoid: 1) Having the Steve Burton character return to town and lurk around for weeks without making contact with anyone else. 2) Having the Billy Miller and Steve Burton characters become instant adversaries. It would be so much better if they had an affinity for one another and would be much less hackneyed. So – who’s who? Miller and Burton are twins, born to Heather Webber’s cousin Susan Moore. Monica got Jason from Susan to raise and nobody ever knew about the twin. Franco figures in because the photo shows… Read more »

I can’t wait for Steve’s return. He better be playing Jason. Billy Miller is fine but I never connected with him playing Jason. The ratings are in the toilet. Hopefully this may bring them up.

I see the range in his acting style from when he played Jason before to Dylan on Y&R to MaybeJASON now! Steve Burton brings something old, I mean, new to each character. Can’t wait til they start cat fighting over who Sonny loves more, Carly needs the most, Michael desires advice from first, who discovers Morgan alive and, oh yeah, who whiny Sam chooses to sleep with first… then second… then third and then fourth.

Oh the drama we haven’t seen in a couple of days!

I think Sam has the biggest dilemma, Paul. But, your spin hit my funny bone…..indeed, with whom will Sam choose to sleep? After a string of men, as I said earlier, I’d think she’s become numb as to who is whom.
This will be like watching a scene from ” Abbott and Costello”, or “The Three Stooges”…. I am loving it !!

Okay…so this is what I think they “should” do. That Burton dude returns to Port Charles and thinks he is Dylan McAvoy from Genoa City.

He calls Sam, Lily Ashby and he keeps calling Monica by the name of Nikki Newman and calling her Mom. He wonders where his brother Nick is and how come Victoria keeps calling herself Elizabeth Webber. In a freak accident… Read more »

What are the Vegas odds that this drags on for a year (like the Morgan storyline) and they make it all about Sonny (like the Morgan storyline) and that Sonny and Carly have nine or more scenes a week about how they can’t figure which one is Jason (like the Morgan storyline)?

I pray they push through this contrivance in two weeks tops and move on. I also pray that Santa leaves me million cash. God doesn’t listen to my prayers. So maybe it’s time for a five dollar bet.

Welcome back Steve, we missed you. Are you coming back to GH to continue Helena’s madness? I think the story line is similar to the movie Face/Off. Helena switch “faces” with the real Jason and the other is the boy in the picture with Franco when he was a boy. I believe Steve’s character iwill be “evil” or destructive to the folks in Port Charles besides confusing everyone with that face. Hmm, now does not sound like a great story line?

Well put, Heidi! I don’t get all the negativity, especially in advance of seeing the story they decide to tell. Chalk it up to the passion we all have for our show, and wanting to see it do better. Bringing back Burton is a gift to the writers with what should be a payoff to the viewers. Now let’s see what they do with it! I’ll be watching…six months from now, when I get through the 101 episodes still on my DVR. Don’t tell me what happens!

I think they’re setting us up with a lot of red herrings. My guess,at this point, is that Billy Miller will remain Jason with plastic surgery, Steve Burton will be a long-lost brother to Jason and he grew up (for a while) with Franco; thus the never-mentioned early childhood best friend.

Love Billy Miller, but am so over the Sam and Jason show. Especially Sam. The character is so dark and brooding, and enough already with all the black clothing! It got old a long time ago.

Oh joy. will he still be stone cold dead,I don’t care. I don’t care for Billy Miller much any more either.This show has toooo much Sonny, and if Burtons back it will be more Sonny. If that’s possible ? I did watch a little. Did Jason steal the gun Sam shot Sonny with ? Remember when Either Liz or Sam stole one there also .For either Jason or Sonny. Not that it makes any difference. The keystone cops ride again. Nothing changes. Whatever happens won’t matter the powers that be don’t give a rats pattootey what you like or hate.

Remember when they had to lose the characters of Todd, Star and John and they suddenly became Franco, Silas and Kiki. Well what if they pull the same thing. You see Steve Burton wake up from the coma as Jason and Billy Miller the twin they search for. Billy has so much range that’s been unused in the stiff character of Jason Morgan. When he was at Y&R he won 3 Emmys because he was able to use his talents to the fullest. Maybe him being the missing twin Jason Quartermaine will finally allow some writing in his favor and… Read more »

“…Billy Miller can just be the great actor he is in whatever role and win his 4th emmy. ”

WHICH is – all – I’ve ever wanted. Billy Miller – OUT – of the Corinthos orbit. so he can be challenged and then… let the feast begin.

since Franco character is so reviled… let him be the twin with Steve Burton.

let it be Billy Miller ( nuJake ) who was returning to find his – 2 brothers – before he got hit.. and that before all this.. he was a doctor.

yessiree, Patrick….
Not only out of the Corinthoses’ orbit , but, also, Sam’s orbit, hemispere, planet and space…
I must admit that I am very disappointed with Billy’s Jason. It seems he is having an out-of-body experience. Character and actor do not fit. I am probably outnumbered, but MY Billy Miller lost his fun. Did he always speak with clenched teeth? Raspy voice?
But, Sam is a downer; a purgative and ‘inhibitor’ at the same time, LOL. What did I expect?!
I hope Billy’s Jason turns out not to be the “real” Jason. His persona will shift drastically for the better; without Sam.

Timmm

You make a great point, Miller has charm and warmth and should not be “Stone Cold.” Let him be with Liz and kill off Freako!

Celia

Yes, T….I like that. You have a point. Billy was so different when he was Jake….and with Elizabeth. I never saw that playfulness nor the spontaneity with Sam.

No. Jake Doe was a jerk toward Elizabeth for months and months when his behind kept saying he did not want to know his previous life.

Here’s my new theory…Dr. Bronsky, the plastic surgeon Ava’s going to see in Russia will either be Steve Burton as the missing twin or Billy Miller as the missing twin if they pull a swap and rewrite history. And the TV commercials show Burton on a motorcycle which is a huge hint in my book that the switch will happen and he will wake up as Jason Morgan.

I think Burton will be tied to Franco as the other boy in the picture . I hope he doesn’t resume his former roll of Jason. Billy has really taken this roll and made it so much better.

Maurice loves Steve, let them reunite and live happily ever after. I like Sonny. I have grown to dislike Sonny and Carly. She is hypocritical and shows no backbone. Sonny told her to leave, he CANNOT leave the mob and Carly flip flops from demanding he change his ways to being okay with him staying in the mob even though she cries over the loss of Morgan, still. Which is it Carly? People bash Alexis over still having feelings for Julian still but Carly is no different. I have NEVER liked Miller as Jason. Make him Freako’s twin and be… Read more »

Ahhh, Timmmy……from the onset I stressed the fact that once in the mob, always in the mob. The first time I heard Carly and other cast members pound Sonny about “divesting” himself from the organization was three years ago….a couple of months after I started watching. And, umpteenth times after that. I commented it is not that simple —easier said than done. In real life, anyway. Now, we hear it again. If TPTB want to keep it real, Sonny cannot just quit the mob, unless he changes his name and moves to Mars. Besides, T, what would Sonny do? Unlike… Read more »

I have family in Boca ( St. Andrew’s—-also my parents have property there), who had to evacuate. They are here at my Grandparents’ house. ….while some went to Greenwich, Ct, with other family members.
Sadly my great aunt had to leave her husband behind, in hospital, for minor heart surgery. He’s ok, thank goodness.

I wish that Burton would have stayed on Y & R. he was a great character there. Loved him with Sharon. So sick of, yet another, Jason resurrection. Let it go and move on writers !!! What the writers need to do is concentrate on these wonderful NEW storylines: Kristina and Parker, more than once a week, Carly the Mob Queen, and Ava’s face being restored. Hopefully, followed by a romance between her and Griffin !! Please, please, move on from Jason !! We have !!!!

Also another hint…the TV ads they’re running show Burton on a motorcycle which implies to me that they are going to pull a switch and he wakes up as Jason Morgan. Burton is a one truck pony, no range like Miller, that’s why they’ll have him play Jason Morgan, that’s all he can do. If you noticed when he was on Y&R he started with the light colored clothing and good guy character. He couldn’t do it and it was boring which is why they then started to put him in dark clothing and making him angrier so he might… Read more »

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
