151 September 8th, 2017 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.

    Soaphound replied

    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.

    SZima replied

    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!

    So right dude…Never care for Steve or Billy as actors..In fact they are the MOST overrated actors who won emmys in daytime history..Five emmys between them!!??? WTF

    Better actors had been let go or not sign just so we can watch this stupid two Jason storyline..OLTL redo??? At least in OLTL you had two good actors that made the storyline worth watching.

    This is exciting!!……not because of Steve’s return, but for the storyline. Not really interested in him…but, he is the means that justify the ends, as it were.
    Sadly, I will miss the episode that day….thank goodness for VCRs.
    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 Heather’s shoulders, somehow.
    Let’s rock ‘n roll……

    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 replied

    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.

    Shay replied

    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! I really do hope that they turn up in this much-anticipated storyline, since I’m still of the opinion that reports of Helena’s “death” are greatly exaggerated!

    Reply

    Celia replied

    Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, Shaybelle……..but wait….what about Carly? And, Elizabeth? Anyone else of whom I’m not aware?
    Makes no difference the face change….you’d think these women ( to use your word) would be able to descern who’s who, no?!?!?! Did they sleep with so many men that they’ve all become a blur? 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 there in black and white.
    I contradicted this by stating a zillion and one times that there is an age discrepancy between Jason 2/Billy and both Jason 1 and Franco. The latter two are the same age….hence it is more likely that Franco and Jason 1/Steve are twins. Compounded with the fact of the imaginary friend, who turned out to be real ( the picture) makes more sense. It does not mean I’m right.
    Most of you are masters at this….you are familiar with past storylines and have a keener sense of smell with past and present characters….and the mindset of the writers. I, actually, never pay attention to writers, until I become bored and find stories too unrealistic.
    But, as we all know, it’s a soap where reality and age become trivial, LOL….Know what I mean?
    Nonetheless…..as it it, I am making an assumption. I may be completely proven wrong.
    There are a couple of ideas from our fellow-posters who are soooo very valid….”anything goes”… open to anything the great “fiction” writers have to offer. I am looking forward to this story. Sadly we have to deal with the “unfavorables” ( you know who I mean)….can’t be helped, ….they will hold a major role in this developing storyline. I will take the credit for Franco and Jason/Steve if they turn out to be twins….DOUBLE LOL….regardless of naysayers, or others taking the credit….again, LOL.
    Remember toxoplasmosis, Shay? You were the only one who agreed with Jude. He diagnosed Sam’s malady instantly because he had seen many such cases in his career. Then there was Zach from Y&R. But, woe be me, Shay; no one takes me seriously….LOL and HaHa!!
    Mostly….yes, amica care….If Helena or Heather become an integral part of this story? I bow to the writers…..even if their input is minimal; I will always be glad to see these, indelible from the mind, ladies.

    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 replied

    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 –

    Phil replied

    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 agree Joel. That was odd. And I also hope that Steve Burton plays someone else.

    somehow it’s all jumbled up.. and that it’s three of them… as most have surmised..

    it could very well be Franco is indeed a twin with either / or

    and that the third , was adopted out and he returned , once finding out he had a twin and was struck by that car… hence Jake Doe

    I don’t know… I truly want Billy Miller to be the Quartermainia tho… as he has the acting skill set to still be that doctor and to fill the void of the must have back … the Q familial.

    daytime has always had that eye turn galore, no? hmmm indeed.

    TMI would give all our mindset up, no?

    altho, I still do thank you, if you and I are the only one’ who to this day still like – Bryan Craig, ex- Morgan.

    argh! altho.. until GH changes it focus… Corinthos over load. will I welcome back BC

    I don’t consider SB or BM “husband material” so … I’ll leave it at that.

    I must say… as I posted.. and its working… DAYS is proving to be a great distraction , from GH. so all my angst won’t be so disparaging

    OK I changed my mind… all eyes on TPTB…

    rally onward

    Rebecca1 replied

    Hey Patrick!
    Actually, I think Bryan Craig has a big following and the Morgan character was liked by many, though we do hear the naysayers more here regarding him.. But then again this site doesn’t get as many responses, of course, like Twitter where you really get an idea of fan favorites. Bryan was good from the get-go as Morgan. I remember the passion, the emotion he expressed when he had that heartbreaking scene early on with Sonny…I think the one where he expressed how he felt second best to Michael. I could feel his angst…

    As far as “will the real Jason please stand up” I guess Billy”s not the real Jason..the three musketeers, Sam, Carly and Sonny have repeatedly said he seems different…I still think, I said this from the beginning, that Franco and Jake/Jason or Franco and Jason/Jason are brothers…Franco might not even be Scott’s son, which would be sad because they’re so cute and fun to watch with each other. I also previously mentioned that Heather said a long time ago that there was a Quartermaine out there that no one knew abour…could be these guys …all three of them…are brothers. Wonder if Steve Burtonsville is planning on staying…

    Patrick replied

    I too would “hate” to see the dynamic between Scotty and Franco , change

    as well.

    it’s like w/Carly… had she not had Bobbie… her one and only character that brings emotion and feelings… like NO OTHER. and that’s the truth. I just don’t get all the appeal about Carly. I mean really ? for the millionth billionth time… we have to see her banshee nut up with and about Michael and Jocelyn.

    anyway.. watching Franco and Scotty.. dang… now theres some tenderness and jockeying about … with GOOD ACTING.

    when Serena came to town.. I thoroughly enjoyed watching a new Scotty before my eyes.. as I had never watched – Scotty play a parent. why GH does NOT MINE THIS GOLD. is beyond me… I even liked it with Heather. once again.. this is the only time.. Roger Howarth… like Laura Wright GET ANY LEVERAGE for their characters.

    so I agree with you.. I hope Franco doesn’t lose that connection with Scotty.

    Rebecca1 replied

    Hey Patrick…just found your September 10th response regarding Scotty. Just wanted to add…I’d like him to have a relationship instead of always being an afterthought. He’s such a quirky, cool, nutty but lovable character. Always felt bad for him regarding Laura…he really loved her.

    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? More Sonny, more Carly, more Jason1—-front and center. I usually FF any Sonny/Carly scene…..but, what a conundrum this will be. I need to watch because the Jason mystery intrigues me…” …can’t always get what you want”, I guess. Shucks!! Damned if I do and damned if I don’t.

    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.

    In GH version Bob and Helena are married…she is also responsible for the two Darryls…maybe Steve Burton will be wearing a Jason mask and really is Faison…who falls for Anna!!!…-lol

    jaybird369 replied

    Both Jim and Celia…oh, stop it…ya’ll are both making me double over with laughter here…lol. Any-hoo, how about this, uh, future scenario: Both Sonny and Original Jason (played by Burton) can no longer deny their attraction to each other…so they elope, leave Port Chuck and stop off at The Newhart Inn in Vermont for a week-long honeymoon. Also, BOTH Heather and Helena each realize that they’re BOTH MARRIED to Bob aka at THE SAME TIME!!!!! And, finally, after their passion-filled honeymoon, Sonny and Original Jason permanently re-locate to, oh, say, Las Vegas. After that, BOTH Sonny and Original Jason are PERMANENTLY FORGOTTEN ABOUT!!!!! LOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!!!

    Later, ya’ll.

    Shay replied

    @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….).

    Celia replied

    @Shay.
    Ahhhh, Shay; I get it !! I only watch the reruns….never saw the ending….not yet.
    My apologies to Tomas….
    Thanks, Shay.

    Shay replied

    You’re welcome, CeeCeeGirl! Again, sorry I ruined the “Newhart” secret finale ending for you…I figured you hadn’t seen it yet, because I knew you wouldn’t have mistook one Bob sitcom for the other if you were privy to the last episode….Usually that hackneyed “dream” thing is lame, but it really worked on this occasion! Hope you enjoy it just the same when you actually view it!

    Shay replied

    Ahhh…that would be “have mistaken!” My bad….but that’s what I get for texting someone else and replying to you at the same time, CeeCee! Multi-tasking is not always such a great idea!

    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??

    Reply

    Celia replied

    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.

As much as I like Steve Burton, I would really like to see Jason QUARTERMAINE remember his QUARTERMAINE roots, and come to terms with his life as a mobster and have some remorse. I have absolutely NO interest in seeing the Carson/Jasam mob-centric show from Guza’s era.

    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.

    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”.

    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!

    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.

    not – one – person and/or post has openly praised his work @Y&R. few and far between is putting it mildly. his old blue eyes strike again.

    the mere fact that mob activity with the dullard.. and he’s now a part of. is what is gnawing at

    this twin story.. is all escalated at catapulting.. the dullard Corinthos’ clan.

    Sonny and Carly ; Jason and Sam ; Michael and Nelle ; Franco and Finn ; and now Steve Burton

    welcome back that much more dullard

    currently

    Sonny was so laughable in the shootout with his cane

    Billy Miller Jason is shot … again

    Sam is wallowing and or attempting to act

    Carly is once again banshee about Michael.. who is the worst actor on the show

    RUN Jocelyn.. with Bobbie

    about the only thing… that is stirring

    I really got and liked.. the familial bonding moment between Lulu and Valerie.. wanting her back in the fold.. which is great.. they’re setting this all up for the Valerie and Parker and Kristina story.. which is the best thing going on. YES IT IS

    so you add in the snore and been their done that.. and you know this show is done in.. by the likes of;

    Maurice Benard and Laura Wright

    You said it, T. Man Landers must be the most imbecilic, air-headed story E.V.E.R!!!!! And the title itself? Well, that alone deserves a kick in the head; only to jar some inspiration in the writers’ collective minds.
    As I said, Steve’s “Second Coming” is neither here nor there for me. 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 of sheepish excuses. Does Scotty know more than we thought? My imagination?

    I’m stoked for Steve Burton’s return. I like the current Jason, but nothing say’s he can’t be someone else. I’m still an advocate for bringing in a few other characters ( now and then) from AMC and OLTL. It would be fun…and GH really needs some fun stories.

    I do not like the man, I do like that he’s riding back into GH and f`ing over Billy or not, either way he is no hero.

    The gall of the man comes to mind ..
    He gave up his title of Jason for Dylan..

    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. It is great entertainment, and people are really seriously angered. My mother just got to the point where she stopped watching. That’s always an option. I think Steve Burton is great, no matter what role, but I will look forward to seeing him back on GH.
    Take care

    Donna replied

    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.

    You summed it all up in one neat package, Donna. Yes, Billy did leave Y&R, as well….but, his reason was pragmatic…not so Steve’s, who used an excuse.

    I’d take one Tyler Christopher over 100 Steve Burton’s. GH can’t help making one blunder after another.

    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 him and his relation Jason (their moms are cousins) as little boys. Steve Burton will be the long lost twin who nobody knew about and Miller will be Jason with his original twin face having been surgically reconstructed.

    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. He played the character for 21 years so it would be crazy for him to play someone else. The 19th can’t come soon enough for me.

    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 spends months – approximately 3 – trying to convince everyone that his name is Dylan. Every one keeps telling him he is Jason. He walks around calling Valentine by the name of Victor Newman. 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 caused by Liesel Obrecht he falls on a mattress and suddenly realizes that he is Nikolas Cassadine and starts going after Ava because he’s been missing her and he is super horny after all that time away from her. Ava is now in love with Griffin and tells Dylan/Jason/A.J., whomever the heck he is, to go jump off a bridge. The same one Sam was pushed off of. The real Jason – BILLY MILLER – wakes up from his coma and tells him, “look dude this isn’t Genoa City and you’re not Dylan or Nikolas. You’re a bad actor named Steve Burton and you need to go back to Nashville and raise your family and run your restaurant like you said you were going to do when you left Y&R. I am Jason now so get a clue and go back to singing poorly on cover songs on YouTube and get me a BLT from one of your “famous restaurants”. Steve Burton realizes that it’s true — you can’t go home again — and he leaves but this time he takes Sonny with him and tells Carly to get a life because he is sick of hearing her whine about her rough life. Suddenly he leaves the city on the same bike he rode in on and as he leaves Hayden comes back after she almost gets hit by Steve’s bike. She looks toward the camera and smiles and then flips him the bird and says, “thank god you’re gone. now i can get back to the job you cost me because of your overrated status…” Scene fades..audience screams loudly with applause and we realize that his role only lasted six weeks instead of the six months he is allegedly sticking around for. The end.

    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!

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 he’ll be able to let lose and kill it! That’s one scenario, the other is…lately Carly and Sonny have been saying how Jason is not like his old self…they’ve said that often lately. So Miller still winds up being not Jason Morgan but the lost twin that was brainwashed by Helena. Or we can completely have a Dallas scenario (for those who know what that means) it was all be a dream…we get back Todd, John and Star. Steve Burton is stiff Jason Morgan and Billy Miller can just be the great actor he is in whatever role and win his 4th emmy. The real dream would be getting new writers that can start utilizing the heavily emmy winning actors at GH to their fullest…Howarth, Stafford, Miller, etc.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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 done with it! Him and Jake Doe can fight for Liz. Liz and Jake Doe were good together. Miller was fabulous on Y&R. I know he has the ability to be funny and warm. He is NOT Stone Cold! Wrong role. There is room for both actors, just get Miller away from Bernard.

    Celia replied

    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 yourself, I find this character very boring and uninteresting. I don’t think I’m alone feeling his negative bibe….with or without Carly. He is nothing if not Sonny Corinthos, the mobster. No charisma.
    I am still befuddled how these two love each other???? It’s a sick and twisted relationship.
    But, we certainly agree about Billy. He has completely lost that boyish charm as Jason.
    Jason Thompson tried emulating Billy’s Billy Abbott, but failed miserably. Now, we are supposed to accept a grown-up, level-headed Billy Abbott. Nah!!!! Happened too fast–too soon.
    Jason T has ruined Billy Abbott; as much as Gina ruined Phyllis. Sigh…!!

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 have well been Jason Morgan moved to Genoa City.

    Burton is a way better actor Billy Miller has played a good part but fans always enjoyed Steve Burton’s role as Jason Morgan the writers are struggling to figure out what to do with both so they came up with the twin angle which they have done several times before Steve Burton always played a very good part as Jason Morgan Billy Millard was a fill-in to try and figure out how to bring Jason’s roll back to life but if they do it right Steve Burton should be a permanent fixture on the show as Jason Morgan Billy Miller will play a twin part and be eventually removed from the show which is what I hope always been a traditional fan so I have to vote for Steve Burton on this one as the “real” Jason Morgan just my opinion
