Great news out of Port Charles!  Longtime General Hospital fan favorite, Tristan Rogers is reprising his role as Robert Scorpio.

Rogers himself confirmed the news that originated during a Daytime After Dark podcast with ABC executive Nathan Varni.

Varni had mentioned that it was in the plans to bring Scorpio back, adding, “We actually have an interesting story that the writers are working on. ”

Now Tristan took to his Twitter account and tweeted,”I’m coming back. Start work on March 19.”

Will Robert be back to help Anna (Finola Hughes) solve the mystery of the whereabouts of the child she had who’s bio-dad was recently revealed to be the evil Cesar Faison (Anders Hove)? Stay tuned!

So, excited to hear Tristan is on his way back to GH? Comment below!

Looking forward to seeing you, I was not watching when you were on before but I know you were great. The story lines need a bit of a lift and you’ll help a LOT.

I’d like to be excited, but we’ve been down this road too many times with our beloved vets.

Keep the Faith ! 🙂

i’m pretty sure… “don’t quote me on this ” READ in SOD – soap opera digest

Tristan lamented.. he would not return to GH.. unless it was for more than what has been. especially for better story. and of a longer duration for it to mean any thing.

sounds logical , right ?

I never truly got in to Robert and Holly… I never warmed to Emma Sams

I LOVE LOVE LOVE – Robert and Anna… now this is hot

I always thought it so “marvel” how Tristan played Robert so … easy going about his relationship WITH Anna.. how he respected and cared for and even if he .. way back in his mindset.. he would have loved a relationship with… the audience knowing.. in his mind.. his true love Anna.. will always be

it’s amazing how “long-timers” WILL WAIT… forever and a day… a love so heart pulled in

posts have long cheered.. guest STAR arcs… and Tristan is at the top. I can hear his accent PLUS

Patrick…I’m with you re Robert and Holly. Never got into them as a couple either, or the Holly character for that matter. Hopefully Robert will help shake Anna out of this funk she seems to be in.

Well, Frank probably had to apologize to Tristan for the way Robert was written the past few times. The character is not filler, so Robert must be playing a key role in upcoming story.

About time, isn’t it? Now is the time to put Tristan under contract already! And bring Genie back for that “interesting story”–and put Finola in the mix–and a-w–a–a–y we go! 🙂

Agree gets those 3 gh legends in story together already!!

BEST NEWS EVER!!!!!!!!

About damned time. And let’s hope he brings Laura back with him.

Yes, like I said!

Does he have a story or will he just be on for a few shows

Sorry, not even Tristan can make this ugly story watchable. And a promised “big story” means he’s in and out for a few weeks with a few lines at the very best.

Likely in and out. And I am no fan of the lost child story Anna has. Too many lost children in Port Charles. I would accept a recast of Robin and allow Anna to have the family she already has.

Neither am I–stretches credulity–and violates Anna’s legacy. Way too far out (like all the other storylines). Not helping with viewership. I’m no longer watching but will come back to GH for Tristan AND Genie. Let’s go, already!

In the meantime, you are truly not missing much, Nancy…I am also none too thrilled with the Anna lost child storyline…I could have bought it if she had been hypnotized or brainwashed by Faison and the pregnancy occured without her knowledge or consent, but the way it has been written really does beggar belief for those of us who recall Anna as an intrepid WSB agent extraordinaire.

yes, i’m happy Tristan is coming back, hopefully a better story would be if
Robert and Anna had another child together, when they were on the run back in 92, Anna could of been pregnant, in back story, anna and robert were separated after some explosion took place in some boat/ship back in Venezuela and were then presumed dead along w/ Faison if memory serves me right , of course their death took place when both Tristan and finola left GH so this is what happened offscreen, we were just told they died along w/Faison, and why Anna and Robert separated and stayed separated was never explained. As i recall Anna showed up alive w/ amnesia years later on All my children, and even then no back story on what separated her from Robert, so my theory would be that anna was pregnant w/ child, Roberts child that is and hid from Faison to stay safe, loss her memory, but was pregnant, somebody helped her out, she couldn’t remember Robert and what happened to him, but gave birth, somehow the child was taken from her, and this would be my prefer back story on Anna then her having a baby w/ the evil Faison. somewhere out there theirs another scorpio kid in my mind, one that grew up to be like both of her parents and is a kick ass spy like them.

this is exactly what i assumed would be the case. That whole part of their history is untapped

aria…I like Robert being the father. And you are right, they left so much time/story offscreen and unexplored this could be the case.

that is the best news ever can’t wait to see Tristan on GH I love that man

Oh me too! I still remember the very first time I ever saw him on GH in what late ’79 or ’80? He had on a trenchcoat & it was foggy outside . . . I have loved him ever since even on Y&R where is character is such a jerk. Still love my Tristan!

Scorpio rules. I agree with the last comment. I want to be excited too, but returning for 3 weeks then your done, sometimes is flat.

Welcome back old chap. It’s been a while since you rescued Robin from Jerry Jax and saw her remarry Patrick Drake. I don’t really count the brief stint where you came to Perks with a binder that had pictures of LuLu’s fertilized eggs from Crichton-Clarke.

Without Robin on the canvas… ?

this Huntington’ disease… is throwing me for a loop. especially on how it’s dealt with Peter August.

NOW … Anna is petrified… ( she screwed every thing up ) making sure there were no loopholes… in keeping her daughter with Faison hidden. she’s alarmed about Faison being diagnosed with Huntington disease. so time is off the essence… seeing as how Felicia ( god, she’s so beautiful ) went right over to see Maxie.

naturally, I don’t want this passed down to Maxie child. this scare is keeping this story lit.

WHO is Anna missing daughter. WOW she’s playing all the beats… how she managed to keep this hidden… and watching her now… as it’s surfacing .. ( ISN”T IT NICE TO see Andre, helping her out ? ) YES ! I could see a reunion with these two.

Finola Hughes’ is driving !!!!! hey hey hey… and it’s a marvel watching her open herself after all these years. as maternal instinct propels her. where’s my baby

————

theres a lot of bubble gum chewing ( lol) going on with Peter August…. as he’s doling out advice.. nurturing… and WHAT ??? guiding along the Dixie chicks LOL… Lulu and Maxie . ditzy chicks .

PLEASE – Peter August is not enough to even disturb Lulu and Dante relationship. although I was miffed at her yesterday for near stomping out on Dante saying she makes her own decisions. SIGH – Julie Berman . the thing about Lulu is she looks like a little Barbie Morgan Fairchild. I want mamma smurph first. she should seriously cut her hair… shoulder length… it would be more believable… i’d want a refund on my quarter. she just won’t quit. PLUS.. there is absolutely no chemistry with either of the ditzy chicks. sorry Peter August.. are you going to be the one afflicted with; Huntington’ ? hop to

argh! so what is Peter and Maxie thing? he’s secretly watching over her for his long lost now dead brother ? and all this attentive nature for maxie and Lulu… and “saving” Jason life… is going to catapult his character ? he’s no actor. he’s too wooden and barely emotes… he’s bad… at least with Nathan… we could enjoy ALL his looks

with Tristan Rogers back…. with Finola Hughes on track… with the possibilities of Genie Francis returning … HOTTEST Jon Lindstrom ( Kevin ) always charged… Scotty and Bobbie ON . Mac and Felicia …. DONE – BAM – WOAH

Monica Ned Julian Kim Oscar Brad Lucas Liz PLUS PLUS PLUS

why would I even mention the Corinthos

outside of the dullard… KEEP Mike and Drew.

this show has a lot . MORE

Patrick; I haven’t been getting much sleep lately so just in case I misinterpreted you apologies in advance but:

Anna doesn’t have a daughter. Her child is Peter/Henrik. Valentin lied to her when he told her she had a daughter…

I would agree. He is sending her on a wild goose chase. Hopefully he comes clean when he hears about the Huntington’s.

Hi Rebecca…Where did I miss that Valentin had lied to Anna about having a girl instead of a boy? If indeed even the latter is true. There were so many Cassadins, over the years,Anna, Robert, Luke, Robin, etc. in and out of clinics, disguises, in “suspended animation” in the past. Anything could be true or false. Then there is still her own twin sister. Complicated.

Regardless, I’m still liking Peter August/Hendrick. Don’t know how he feels about Lulu, but I feel he’s genuine in his concern for Maxie.

Loving having Triston/Robert back. He belongs along side of Anna one way or another. Hopefully a rekindled love interest since it is so hard for any other guy to meet up to Anna’s standards when she’s on her game…fun and adventurous at the same time. Duke was also good with her but in a more sensual way. And I do like Finn, but imo he’s just not the one for her.

Do you or anyone remember why Robert left a few years ago before Y&R? Was it a WSB assignment?

Hey Rose…

It seemed to me that after Valentin told Anna she had a girl he called Peter and told him he’d thrown Anna off the track and that he (Peter) should stay in town. So, we know Peter is Faison’s son (or at least we and Peter/Henrik, himself) believe him to be…

Unless it was purposely written to throw viewers off the track as well, it seemed to me that Valentin has known what happened to Anna’s child all along, never lost track of that child (Peter) and is keeping him a secret from Anna for some reason.

With that said…is Peter’s the brother from a different mother? Meaning…not Anna’s? Or, did Anna have twins and one, a daughter, still out there (or in town, someone we know…)

The writers have been known to switch things up at the last minute so I guess all possibilities exist. I came away with no doubt that Valentin had lied and told Anna she had a girl to throw her off the track and away from Peter. Why… is the mystery…

We agree regarding Peter/Henrik. I don’t know why he’s getting so much criticism,I like the character and I like Wes’s portrayal. He’s unlike others in the town…has a mellow demeanor, a kindness about him and even while being duplicitous comes off somehow vulnerable and conflicted. I think he’s very sincere in his despair over Nathan’s death, has guilt and seems to be interested in Maxi (at first I thought Lulu). Not sure if they’ll make him cray-cray in the end in his desperate search for love, family and perhaps trying to have his brother’s life???? Or, I could be theorizing on a story that doesn’t exist. That’s my take at this point. I hope they don’t recast the character. There’s not a lot of praise for the actor on this site; not sure how it is in Twitterland, etc…

I’m thrilled that Tristan is back but he was so misused in his last several visits that I’d almost wished he hadn’t returned. He wasn’t the Scorpio of yore. His humor/snark/quick wit…his ricochet brilliant sleuthing mind wasn’t used at all. I think they even had him sit on a bridge chair in the last row when Robin and Patrick got remarried! Just a waste of one of the most popular GH vets.

So I guess we’ll see if he’s here to stay or just to pop in. There can’t be any thought of a rekindled romance if he’s just on for a short stay. I’ve always liked the Anna/Andre pairing since they “flirted” with the possibility of this couple and then dropped it…instead paired up Jordan with Andre. They’d be a good match…Andre, too, has WSB connections and that type of “sleuth” mind….

I like Anna and Finn, too. I think the writers have gone out of their way to show both Anna and Alexis as “women” and not just their professions. So, both Anna and Alexis are more flirty, more sexual, more looking toward romance. In that sense, Anna flirts with both Finn and Andre. We’ve seen her interest in both men (at different times) and I think both potential relationships have been fun and could work. Andre is more grounded; Finn more eccentric. Not sure which I prefer now that Andre’s back. I like Finn with Alexis, too. They’re both brilliant but neurotic, playful and play off each other well. Not sure but I’m enjoying the different interactions between all these characters. (I’m REALLY hoping Hayden doesn’t come back with their baby but you know that’s bound to happen and shake things up.)

I think it was the WSB that took Scorpio away again; if I remember he was just in town to tell Lulu her embryo was still vital or something like that…

Well, hip. hip hooray! I am a huge fan of the one and only Robert Scorpio, who is cooler than the other side of the pillow.
I am no fan, however, of this dreary, depressing story which has Anna having a baby with her own personal Devil–Faison. I wish they had not gone there.
But if it brings Robert Scorpio back I shall be more forgiving of the bad writing they are affording to Finola Hughes.
Now, give Robert his own intriguing storyline–make it a good one.

And make it last for more than five minutes! The past few times Robert has landed in Port Charles the parting has not been a sweet sorrow, but a doubletake….as in what just happened? One moment Scorpio was there and the next he was gone in the blink of an eye! This charming guy is one of the most popular GH legacy characters ever and he, along with Genie’s Laura and Finola’s Anna, deserves to be feted and honored with storylines that are both substantial and respectful of their Port Charles past.

Scorpio should never, EVER be used as filler or background, that’s an insult to what this ACTOR & CHARACTER was and brought to GH..he’s still generate to much excitement and still very popular to be used in anything then 1 of the center character, he could definitely filled the void left by Tony Geary, Tristan and Robert Scorpio should’ve filled that void when Tony retired in 2015.

Luckily we havent seen or heard of Colin so maybe he is done with Y&R and GH can use him for a while.

Exactly, Del!…Instead the GH torch was passed from Luke to Sonny….and we know how well the “All Sonny all the time” format has been received!

This show has been so haphazard, and poorly written for decades now, … If they couldn’t build Laura (Genie) back, what hope is there for Scorpio. Soaps in the US these days aren’t about structured story telling, they’re more like an adrenaline rush for folks on valium. I mean no offence to my fellow fans, the only reason I still watch is for the actors, it’s TPTB and the writers who continuously offend.
Vierwer 88

Neither am I a fan of the dreary, depressing s/l of Anna’s. And I also agree: Give Tristan an intriguing story line–with Genie and Finola. “Seems like old times….”

Agree completely Nancy! It would be so FAB to have those three take out Valentin and Peter and that horrible Jim Harvey character!

Yes, let us see Robert Scorpio erupt out of the shadows of the foggy pier one night wearing his iconic London Fog rain coat and hopefully, a pair of trousers.

OMG, Harry! You’ve done it again…Hah! (Even if it was a case of wrong soap, wrong actor, unless you know something about Tristan that we don’t??? Do tell….)

@Harry…The very notion that Faison fathered at least three children of which we are now aware rather sounds as if he were running his own version of the “Lebensborn Program!” (Especially with the compliant Obrecht as his willing babymama twice over….)

Hearing is one thing…seeing is another!

I certainly hope it is long term! Kick Jordan to the curb and lets put Robert back in the commissioner’s seat where he belongs!

Yes, Timmm….YES! Jordan is the worst PCPD commish ever! Time to let a true professional take over…

“Commissioner Scorpio” has a nice ring! (Haven’t I heard that before?) 🙂

Indeed you have, Nancy, but I certainly never get tired of hearing it!

Looking forward to this. would like to see Laura in this part of the story too. Make it like the old days when Robert, Luke, and Laura did some adventures. of course, Luke wouldn’t be involved but at least we get Laura too.

Ditto!

Anna could be added in place of Luke, given us constant interesting, exciting stories that feature the original 3 old school adventure crew..Robert/Laura/Anna!!

I’ll say yes, but I’m still smarting over the Genie Francis debacle. Hopefully, I’ll be able to enjoy this… Love the show, but HATE their decision regarding her. It colors everything about GH right now and I don’t see it subsiding anytime soon. ..Just feel so disrespected… I bet not half as much as Genie, though.

Not a big fan of this stupid story line. Which it would turn out to be a falsehood and they find another reason to have Robert return.

Welcome back Tristan!

“…It colors everything about GH right now and I don’t see it subsiding anytime soon ”

so agree… it’s like you start thinking of GH and you draw a blank.. because of knowing that Genie Francis was fired so handily and just so dissed the audience that you can gloss over… and TPTB can wait this out… but it’s THEIR. a gaping hole

bringing Tristan Rogers… a male veteran… who is unlike any other. by GOD yes.

the Jason / Sam / Drew triangle has already tanked. NOW GH is bringing back Tristan Rogers… who I want to see.

I truly believe they rushed the gun on giving Max Gail , Mike altzheimers so quickly. because Max Gail has so much presence.. and they could have ridden this golden opportunity and treated us with Max talent. as I’ve posted to see Sonny calling the shots right out of the gate… ruined this opportunity .

once again… TPTB writers … ruined this Anna story.. about her missing child. to see Peter August… already making inroads.. with the ditzy chicks… Maxie and Lulu.. isn’t working.. but if TPTB want to make it appear as if Wes Ramsey is working . he’s not by any means. he hasn’t even defined his character.. and I don’t see him pulling any weight.

Anna should be given her own child… and yes it should have been a newbie.. to see her child.. who we dont’ know… she doesn’t know.. should have been the route. but no… nepotism.. and the agenda of … Frank VAlentini and Shelley and Chris… are not gelling and LEADING any thing of note

there clearly are no stories right now.. that are generating any positive feedback.

I don’t know if Frank, Shelley, and Chris have any tricks they can cull from.

Tristan, this is the happiest news ever! Love Robert and I hope this is not a two day stopover for him, but a real storyline with excitement and some intrigue and lots of interaction with Anna. Welcome back!

I’m sure it will be very brief.

Tristan..
He lives in Australia, yes? …. long trip to be in GH for any length of time..
I hope he brings a tranquilizer gun with him, Anna needs a dart in the azz..

((perhaps Scorpio can calm that twitching jittery woman down down!))

Will it stop her tears? Seems like Finola has to cry in every scene…..even when she wins an award from the WSB

tears of joy 😉

hi Grant ..
at least 80% of the characters are crying, truth..
GH has become morbid, tears and tears ..
watching is like entering the depresion zone..
It is crying soap..
Anna is Jittery Twitching teared up mess .. she no longer roars she lost her strong womanhood, sigh ..

Hello Ms. su0000…

Having emotions, being all misty/weepy has nothing to do with being a strong woman. Anna can kick just as much as as she always did and when she needs to. That has nothing to do with her having emotions. She’s brains, brawn and heart. Those are good things!

What I will grant you is the show in general has focused on a lot of sad stories simultaneously which has no doubt increased the stock to rise in Kleenex as characters and viewers alike are having one group cry after another! 😉

Oh, no….you didn’t just say that, SuzieQ?!?!?!?!
Oh, Lordy Lord….all I did was take a peek….and I SAW you….cracking up….what would this site do without you?… gotta run…..

…..actually…..what would this site BE without you? Forever laughter, my friend, susu…..

LOL…just saw your tranquilizer gun…must’ve missed that when responding to Grant! Now THAT was funny!

@su…..I agree GH has turned into one big, unnecessary weepfest! Talk about a bunch of over-emoting crybabies…soooo overdone! Of course, I have remained tear-free because I find it impossible to emotionally-invest in most of these inane characters currently inhabiting Port Charles…the majority of the time I just wish they would be sucked up by some big hole in the old terrafirma! Other than some residual fondness for a few legacy players, I simply don’t give a fig what happens to any of these people!. What’s really a crying shame is to see how this once mighty soap has fallen….now that’s something that truly can make me just weep! (Quite frankly, if I’m in the mood to be “moved,” I go to YouTube and look up vintage GH episodes that had actual heart and soul….in spades!)

TR you really must need a paycheck you will be used to prop somebody else probably the cue card reader and the screaming woman .

More than happy, I’m freaking over the moon, the people running GH has made nothing but bad decision but this one is one of their best..Bringing Robert Scorpio back is the best thing they could’ve done, now give him a front burner interesting story, Scorpio is NO filler , you got that?

Primarily he’ll be acting with Anna – but I hope he gets some scene time with brother Mac.

I’d love to see Mac back full time…

Robert Scorpio rules Port Charles its just no way that he should only be with Anna, Scorpio should be all over canvas..Consultant the police Dept, checking on the secret WSB recruits in place of PC, visiting family, meeting new folks and just knowing everything that going on..That’s how he always was.Scorpio loom over over where.

YEA!!! Best news ever! He and Anna and Laura (Genie) could also be involved in a story!

I hope they are.

Yea!!

I love Robert Scorpio, and I hope he has a successful return. I also hope the love of his life, ‘Holly” is with him. I never could get into Anna.

For those who resent the s/l of Anna having a child with Faison, do you all know Anna’s history? She was a double agent, a traitor to her country. When Robert asked her why she betrayed her country, she stated it was for the money. She also lied about meeting Faison when she entered the DVX. Faison’s mother, who was Anna’s nanny, (Nanny McTavish), stated that Anna had been knowing Faison, since a young teen, and would accept money from him. Anna also became a fence. She framed Holly with stolen Buddahs in an attempt to reconcile with Robert. When she met Duke, she wanted to run away with him and leave Robin with Robert. She was going into the Witness Protection Program. She was willing to never see Robin again because of her selfish love for Duke. Anna always looked out for Anna. She twisted and bent the law for her own purposes. She killed Carlos because he killed mobster Duke…the show later whitewashed it, and said that Carlos was wearing a bulletproof vest.

Consequently, if Anna Devane was a traitor, and was giving up her child to be with Duke, was a fence, framed innocent Holly, lied about knowing Faison, when in actuality she had a relationship with him as a young teen, there should be no doubt that she could have a child for him. Her history makes this story very believable…more believable than any story that is on the show at the present. Anna’s association with Faison has caused much havoc to many characters in Port Charles, including her child, Robin and Robert Scorpio. He had to give up 15 years of his life for her being a traitor, in order to keep Robin safe. This s/l is wayyyyy overdue, in my opinion. Anna Devane needs to pay for her deeds!

I am super excited for Robert Scorpio’s return. He is my all time favorite GH character. I hope they spark something with Anna and Robert again, it would be fun to watch. Can not wait for Tristan Rogers to grace the screen again. GH just needs to write a story worthy of RXS and Tristan will breathe new life into Port Charles again. Hope they give him quality air time and keep him back for awhile!

I am so thrilled Robert is coming back! But please pleaee please GH dont just use him to pop in and pop out….he is a legacy character and arguably the greatest character on GH ever. Tristan does such a phenomenal job as RXS and deserves to be wrote into a big storyline. The fans want it and it is looooong overdue. We want Robert Scorpio back full time to work next to another legacy character, Anna. These two together, no matter what dynamic, are incredible. Please give us Scorpio amd Devane back!

Beyond excited that Tristan will be back on GH. He has legions of fans…30 years worth and we love Robert. No matter the story he is always
compelling. Sexy Smart Cool and fantastic on screen with Anna and Mac and Luke and Laura and Holly and Frisco Katherine and Sean and Tif ..come on. There was no one like Robert Scorpio!.

love to see him return, but if he kisses Sonny”s rear, I will be gone. Want to see the old Scorpio kicking butts and taking names. The Mobs are us show no thanks. Plus bring Genie back.I hate Sonny, Carly, Sam , Jason. . Now its still all Sonny all the time Its me never watching all the time.

TR love fest it’s is a bit much yes I like Robert love to have him come back him Anna makes a good team that’s it Duke was the love of her life some of the things that was said aren’t true I have all the DVDs from the 80s to prove it gh made a mess and now they need to fix it 90% of the fans wanted Griffin to be Anna and Duke son and gh blue it Duke and Anna had the best chemistry alot of fan would love to have him back# Duke lives.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Dante is Shot as Jason Reveals Himself

Just how was General Hospital going to reintroduce the character of Jason Morgan to the canvas with the highly-anticipated return of Steve Burton in the pivotal role? Well, why we don’t have all the answers, the show wasted no time, and Burton first appeared at the beginning of the Monday, March 4th episode.

In story, while Sonny (Maurice Benard), Selena (Lydia Look) and Ava (Maura West) are at the warehouse, they are facing off with the FBI and the PCPD when John (Adam J. Harrington), Anna (Finola Hughes), Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), Chase (Josh Swickard) et al show up.  Meanwhile on the roof, a man kneels over a skylight window who pipes up with, “it appears they are late to the party.” It’s then revealed just who the man is talking to, and it turns out it’s JASON!

Meanwhile, John and Anna are questioning Sonny and Selina on what they are doing in the warehouse. Selina says they are planning a poker game. Next, the man with Jason aims his gun at Sonny. However, Jason messes up his shot, but the shot rings out. Inside the warehouse everyone scatters about. They realize the show came from the skylight.

Jason tells the other man they’ve been compromised and need to leave the location. Below, in the warehouse, Dante thinks that he and Chase can get onto the roof since the shooter didn’t see them. So, Dante takes off with Chase to find the culprit. In the meantime, John orders a CSI unit. Next, Chase returns and says the building is all clear and Dante is pursuing the suspects.

Now on the pier, Dante catches up with Jason (who’s back is to him) and the other man. Dante orders them to freeze. While the other man gets away, Jason stays put and Dante orders him to turn around slowly with his hands up. Dante is shocked to see its Jason. Confused, Dante says, “What the hell?” Next, the other man returns and fires two shots into Dante’s chest.

As Dante goes down, Jason runs over to him. The other man calls Jason “Jacobs” and tell him to leave the cop to die. Jason tells the other man to go to the planned site and he will find another way out. Next, the man attempts to fire at Jason who is hovering over Dante, but Jason shoots at him first and takes him out.

Back at the warehouse, Ava sees a bullet hole in Sonny sleeve, as John says that it confirms that Sonny is the intended target. John and Sonny stare each other down due to their dark past.  It’s clear that Sonny doesn’t trust John and vice-versa.  Anna tells Sonny she is not out to get him and doesn’t want him to die. She adds that Sonny, “Must have had an angel on his shoulder because she doesn’t see how that sniper missed from this range.”

Chase returns to the warehouse having dropped everyone off at the PCPD, but says Dante hasn’t checked in with him. Sonny looks very concerned, as Jason is looking very concerned over Dante’s body.

So, what did you think of the first episode back for Steve Burton as Jason Morgan? Will it be revealed that he has been infiltrating this organization to save Sonny? Does Jason not know his true identify? What do you think is going on?  As for Dante, will he pass out from his injuries and not identify Jason was even there on the roof with him? Comment below.

General Hospital

Steve Burton Confirms ‘General Hospital’ Head Writer Switch Changed Jason’s Comeback Storyline

General Hospital viewers will see today, Monday, March 4th, the beginnings of the return storyline for Steve Burton and his character of Jason Morgan.

Just how did the recent head writing regime change at GH alter the plans for story for Jason’s comeback? As had been rumored, seems plenty. Back on January 22nd, it was revealed that Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor had been replaced by Patrick Mulcahey and Elizabeth Korte. At that time, Burton had already signed-on to return to the daytime drama for the first time since being let go towards the end of 2021.

Speaking with Soap Opera Digest, Steve confirmed that what we will see on-air is from the new head writers and that the direction of the story changed, “So apparently there was a whole different story planned and then the head writer switch happened and then they kind of rebooted (the story arc). I know Patrick (Mulcahey, one of the new head writers) a little bit, but I really know Elizabeth Korte (who was promoted to co-head writer).”

Burton added, “There’s no one in the building that loves that show, knows the history of the character, and is invested in it 100 percent than Elizabeth. There has never been a more deserved promotion, ever. Once I know that she was (one of the head writers), I was like, ‘Oh, this is gonna be good! I cannot wait.’ And it has been exactly that. Everything has been amazing.”‘

In addition, during an Instagram live on Monday with his podcast and comedy show partner, GH star, Bradford Anderson (Spinelli), Burton also commented on the upcoming story arc which brings Jason back to Port Charles. Steve expressed, “The story is not going to disappoint. The scenes are super deep. Frank (Valentini, EP, GH)  and the new head writers took some time to really think this out.”

Burton, being a longtime veteran of the soaps, said Jason’s return is not just isolated to be about him. “Great story on daytime should involve a myriad of people across the board and where it effects everybody,” he shared. The popular fan favorite feels that this story delivers on all levels.

So, what do you think about the head writer change and how it prompted the plans for Jason’s return? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

Jason Cook Recalls Landing His Soap Roles as DAYS Shawn-Douglas Brady and GH’s Matt Hunter

Daytime fans remember Jason Cook when he became wildly-popular as Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Bo’s (Peter Reckell) son, Shawn-Douglas Brady on Days of our Lives from 1999-2006. He later made a brief return in the role in 2015 for the series 50th anniversary.

After departing DAYS, Cook was offered a role on General Hospital as Dr. Matt Hunter, the younger brother to Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) from 2008-2012. However, during his time on the soaps, and after, Cook has been focusing on his behind the scenes roles and passion as writer and a director of feature films.

Last week, the Michael Fairman Channel welcomed Jason, along with two of the stars of his latest film, Four for Fun, Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Jacob Young (ex-AMC, B&B, GH). During the conversation, Cook revealed his continued admiration for the soap medium and the actors who work in it, and how it came to pass that he landed his parts on Days of our Lives, and then on General Hospital.

Cook spoke on becoming the on-screen son of soap opera’s most iconic couples, Bo and Hope: “I auditioned for Fran Bascom. She was the Days of our Lives casting director at the time. I was never a great auditioner, I don’t think. She made me feel really comfortable. I remember that screen test. And then, I remember when I got the part, I was actually working at a company at a desk job. I got the call at work and I just screamed, and at the time I didn’t quit my job. But then, I got that contract when I was 19-years-old and it totally changed my life.”

But, was Jason aware how key to the show being Bo and Hope’s son would be? “Yeah, my older sister was a fan of the show. She definitely let me know that I better not mess it up, because I was gonna ruin her favorite couple,” he shared. “I remember she printed out the family tree and it looked like a physics diagram. It was so complicated. A lot of detailed work went into it. But, I was excited.”

After being a known entity with a large fan following, eventually Cook made his way to a new role on General Hospital. Jason explained, “GH was fun. That was a situation where Brian Frons (ex-ABC Daytime President) brought me over there. I just told him I didn’t want to be like or want to do Shawn. He’s like, ‘Well, what do you wanna do?’ I said, ‘How can I screw things up around here and shake things up?'”

From that conversation things began to formulate. Cook revealed, “We started talking about the TV series House. I think in soaps, there’s an assumption if you’re going on a show that everybody wants to be the hero. I was like, ‘I don’t want to (be). I want to screw everything up.’ And then, they wrote it in that Matt Hunter burns the hospital down within like six months. I was like really proud about that. The other part that I loved about that character is that Matt, and his older brother Patrick (Jason Thompson), were both neurosurgeons. And if you (an actor) resigned your contract (with the show) you go to Patrick, you see Patrick. And if you don’t resign your contract, you see my character, because my character was going to kill you every time.”
