On September 13th, General Hospital viewers will finally get to see Steve Burton (Jason) and Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo (Brenda) mix-it up, again! Last time out, it was the shotgun Vegas wedding between Jason and Brenda that had us all in stitches, and the dynamic of these two butting heads brings a complexity to whatever story is being told. Now, Jason is coming to her rescue again. Steve Burton caught up with Sara Bibel of fancast to preview the next beat in the saga! Here are a few excerpts!
Burton on Brenda’s big secret: “The big secret is the Balkan is after her. We don’t know why. I need to bring her back to Port Charles to protect her from this guy because he’s not even trying to kill her but hurt her, disfigure her. People always ask, ‘Why would Jason go if he doesn’t like Brenda?’ Well, you know the history with Brenda and Sonny and Jason. Someone’s really trying to hurt this person. He would go in a heartbeat. While she’s in Rome, she gets drugged. So I feel like the best thing for her is to come back to Port Charles where I can keep her safe and bring the guys to my home turf.”
Burton on how Brenda’s return will affect Jason’s relationship with Sam: “It’s going to make my life a nightmare, quite frankly. Jason really doesn’t have much of a life but I don’t want to be in the same room with Brenda and Carly (Laura Wright) in particular. Once those two get together I’m in big trouble.”
