General Hospital

The Heart-Tugging Scenes Of GH's JaSam! Steve Burton Delivers In Tender Moments!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

If you caught yesterday’s episode of General Hospital, which is getting mighty good we might add, JaSam fans hopefully were jumping for joy, when Jason and Sam, and little baby Danny decided to leave the hospital together as a family!

What made these little nuggets of scenes so tender was the performances by Steve Burton (Jason) along with Kelly Monaco (Sam) and Laura Wright (Carly), which almost made us feel like those were Steve’s real emotions as he is preparing to say goodbye to his longtime co-stars!

In the episode, Jason tells Sam he wants to be a father to Danny and he wants to be a family.  He also tells Sam how much he loves her.  Later in a moment alone with Danny, Carly enters and there is a heartfelt hug about their friendship.

Kudos to GH’s head writer, Ron Carlivati for giving JaSam fans a long awaited moment, and in particular, Mr. Burton, who once again showed us that he can play tough as well as tender better than anyone in the genre …  something that will be surely missed!

What did you think of the performances and the scenes with JaSam on yesterday’s GH?  You can watch them again after the jump and then weigh-in!

I’ve been a GH fan since the days before Luke and Laura. Steve Burton has to be one of best actors GH has had. HIs range is exceptional. I love this character. Here’s hoping the story line doesn’t break my heart. Sam and Jason, were a great team. I will be sitting at the edge of my seat watching the turn of events. Let’s hope he makes appearances from time to time. No where is Frisco and Robert? lol Duke Lavery appeared wow…what’s his secret with Robine? love all these characters.

Sorry, but I just HAD to reply. “his range”??????????? The man virtually NEVER changes the expression on his face, the look in his eyes, or the tone of his voice (heck, he doesn’t even change the style of his wardrobe). He HAS no range. Happy, sad, furious, excited, confused – it doesn’t matter, the man is ALWAYS the same. For range, please see Jane Elliot.

Actually I think it would be even harder to play a character with brain damage that supposedly stunted his emotions, than a normal character. So for the fact that Steve Burton had to act within the confines of NOT showing emotions, I think he did a fabulous job. Wardrobe is not a choice made by the actors, and the way he dressed was also part of his character. Steve will be missed, but I’m sure he will have other projects soon enough.

Don’t worry they called in the calvary enter Sean Kanan as AJ when he puts the midget mobster on a meat hook. In the words of Clint Eastwood/Dirty Harry go ahead make my day until then. Yawn.

please see the other comments below that I agree with. Steve Burton emoted with such a subtle brilliance…he laughed, cried, judged with his eyes…you felt warmth, wrath, amusement…wonderful actor/character…will miss him greatly.

Perhaps you read this comment wrong.

I said range meaning” the distance or extent between possible extremes. Steve is an exception actor and has the ability to play any emotion with ease.

Please read more carefully. I loved this character and would never say anything derogatory.

To be fair,Jason was in a devastating car accident years ago,with a drunken AJ (then played by Sean Kanan).
At the time of the accident Jason was premed,going to be a doctor like his dad.
He suffered a serious brain injury that altered his personality,hence his demeanor for these many years.
Prior to the accident he was a very different guy.

I think Burton did a good acting job..That is the way the script was written for his particular character…That’s the way he was told to portray Jason….Thanks Lisa didn’t remember that car accident he had with AJ…..So now I understand
his personality & others will to.

so go online and show me just ONE example of how burton displayed ANY emotion. “has the ability to play any emotion with ease”: name one. Listen,if people find Burton attractive or nice or muscular or whatever, that is fine. more power to you. i like several movie and tv actors that aren’t really that great; i just like them. But to out-and-out lie, and say that burton can laugh and cry or emote, or that he is a great actor, when in plain fact he never had done any of those things, is kind of sad. just be honest:… Read more »

Steve Burton expresses more through his beautiful blue eyes & facial expressions than mere dialog ever could. I can never thank him enough for sharing this “gift” so generously with us for 21 years on #GH. I will miss him & the iconic character he has created in Jason Morgan more than I can ever express!

Please come back Steve and please let him be alive to come back! Please don’t recast him. The scenes with Carly were too short. I love Carly and Jason together and they both nailed it! Great job GH… I want more!!!

No one can replace Steve, just like no one can replace Tony. People, you should accept any thing Steve Burton wanted to sign. Don’t you understand the long term fan loves their characters. You can’t kill off Jason and not expect the ratings to drop.

I am still not convinced that he is really Duke he just happens to have the old face I still say it is Faison the actor who played Faison is retired from acting hence we got Ian Buchanan back.

We got the same thing on OLTL… Todd accepted that he isn’t Todd and took on the Victor Lord Identity, he and Tea were happy and in love. Finally knew that no matter what his name was, he was her soulmate, the love of her life and the next night… BANG… shot dead. I hate that RC did that.. but in the last 30 seconds of OLTL.. we got our Man back. So, Jason will be back someday… just as we Trevorites are waiting for Victor’s return and the final plug for the ROBOT running around calling himself Todd Manning.… Read more »

I enjoyed the touching scenes Jason had w/his circle of ppl. He had’em w/Sonny, Carly and Sam. I liked the line when Sonny said something about I haven’t taught u something in a long while, but you can’t protect everyone you love, etc…..and not to mention his scenes w/Carly and Sam. It was a mix of reel and real life sentiments. SB’s eyes were pinkish, blood shot in all of those scenes. THe poor man was probably crying his eyes out all day long. I do wish his last scenes w/Monica were more sentimental. Other than that I’m going to… Read more »

Thanks Susan:) Yeah, I’ve been watching for about 30 yrs now. I remember preppy/pre-med, reindeer sweater wearing Jason to the black t, hit man Jason he became. I know Jason, Sonny and Carly haven’t shared many scenes, to take away from it being the Carly, Sonny and Jason show. So it was nice that they had those last, meaningful scenes tog b4 he left. I don’t think those scenes were acting per say.

Sad not Liason goodbye. They were such a huge part of GH history and grew up together. Jasam never had the spark and Jason never had that same look in his eye for Sam. Also where was the big shoot out that fans expect> Rather boring. His character deserved more…

I agree Liason should have had goodbye scene because of their History together more than he had with Sam. They also had Jake his first child together. Said writers including the former writers refuse to acknowledge the relationship they had together and the rich History of the two families. Also fans seems to have forgotten the love he had for Robin and many more on this show. Jason’s love haven’t been just about Sam as some of their fans want to think. I believe we can all remember great storyline with Jason and other actresses on this show. I will… Read more »

Rodd
Guest

The scenes were great! And shooting Jason in the back was so cowardly. The one thing I can be glad about is that it happened on the pier and Jason was right on the edge…which means he could fall in, disappear and come back later, saying he floated away and took a while to heal, etc. But I hope he doesn’t die on screen. That would be tough.

susan
Guest

rodd i could not believe the low life coward (duke lavery is a loser) shot jason in the
back on the pier i did not like jason being written out like that he is our hero
and should have died or disappeared being a hero like he always has been

totally did not agree with the way RC ended jasons run on GH he has been
on aire @ GH 21 yrs and deserved a better send off than that

GET RID OF DUKE LAVERY ASAP!!! who wants to see him now
not that I did anyway to begin with he is a LOSER!!!!

He will be sorely missed, and I wish him well. That being said, I cannot believe they did not have him find out that the baby was his before he left, that is a MAJOR dissappointment. I am guessing that the information will be filtered to Sam within the next few weeks, so that she will find comfort in knowing that she has a part of Jason, which… Read more »

I’ll be just like everyone else and say Steve did a wonderful job as Jason and will be sorely missed .

How could they not let that come out first????

I loved the episodes until Jason was shot. (I didn’t like Bernie being killed either- the occasional work, I’m sure was something the actor enjoyed and he did his role well). I read today that Steve Burton actually offered to work occasionally at a paycut and GH said all or none. I think viewers should know this. So it was the choice of Carlivati and Valentini to basically give Steve a choice all or nothing. If Jason is killed off, I’m gone. Saw some people mentioned Duke. I watch GH in spite of the mob. We don’t need Duke. Never… Read more »

I cannot even describe in words how these scenes touched me. I felt like I was watching all of them struggle knowing these were final scenes for them. So bittersweet and beautiful. Jason accepting the baby as his own not even knowing it was his all along and Sam with her restored faith in believing she can finally be happy.

Still crying buckets of tears after yesterday’s episode . Already missing Steve, Steve & Kelly, and JaSam and Danny. GH did not give justice to Jason and Sam , as if our Jason Morgan would just crawl away from his gun ,our Jason Morgan would pick up his gun and shoot to kill back. Here’s hoping that Jason isn’t really dead and he;ll be back to make it right. Thank you Steve Burton for being our Jason Morgan, no recasts will do as you are Jason Morgan, JASAM 4EVER!!!

I think that the fact that they made the entire last month about Sam and the baby is a huge disservice to the character of Jason Morgan. And to have it be Duke Lavery, not one of the thousands of enemies that Jason had in his life, be the person who shot him? It’s just lazy writing to prop up stunt casting. And I’m sure we’ll see that it is all connected to AJ, but so many missed opportunites! But because the network forced the writers into this Jasam reunion before Burton left, they wrote themselves into a corner. Because… Read more »

I loved Steve Burton, he is the one and only Jason. A common criticism is of his lack of emotion, but if you watched the show for years, as I did, there is a progression in Jason from someone unable to feel or show emotion to someone who became less cold as time went on. He showed emotion especially well in yesterday’s show. I had thought he was going to get shot from the time Bernie called about “a matter of life or death” but I did not think he would have been ambused by the coward Duke Lavery. I… Read more »

In honor of Steve Burton’s final episode , here’s tribute to Jason and Steve. Why we love Jason …he’s Sam’s husband, Danny’s father, , a hero, he rides that motorcycle, looks so handsome in black leather, he loves children, he only kills the bad guys that truly deserve it, he’s super cool , he has those baby blue eyes that can convince, condemn, and console, he can speak a thousand words without saying a word and he always saves the girl in trouble.

General Hospital

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly passed away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.
