49 October 23rd, 2012 This Week’s GH Promo: “Guess Who’s Back?” – Watch The Video!

Courtesy/ABC

ABC has released this week’s promo for General Hospital, and if you put the pieces together, you may figure out who the voice over narrator is talking about.  Or, is it just a red-herring to throw viewers off?  Time will only tell, but here’s what to look for as clues in the promo – the Jason/Bernie crime scene, coupled with Sam’s voice saying, “Don’t assume he is gone.” Next, we hear Monica saying, “If anyone should find out you’re alive ….”, and we see a man walking in the dark in what appears to be leather jacket! The promo ends with Patrick (who probably is talking about Robin at this point) stating, “People just don’t come back from the dead!”

So as we know, Sean Kanan is set to return to General Hospital next week!  Steve Burton’s last airshow was yesterday.  What do you think is going on here?  Is Kanan going to be a very much alive A.J.?  A replacement for Burton’s Jason? Are we talking about someone else completely showing up out of the blue?

Watch the General Hospital promo after the jump, and then weigh-in!

    I think if Kanan were replacing Burton, Frank and ABC wouldn’t be so secretive about it. Plus, that move would be a horrible one. I’d rather him back as AJ because he wouldn’t fit as Jason. Plus, not a fan of SK anyway!

    I think the “Return” is AJ and Robin, officially!

    I was told when I left a comment on another website that no one other than Steve Burton could ever play his role.Couldn’t disagree more!But they’ll do what they want to do anyway regardless of what any fan might think!

    Wishful thinking here but I wish they would surprise us again and bring back Tristan Rogers. This Duke storyline is ridiculous but makes even less sense with Luke involved and not Robert!

    Patrick wouldn’t have that reaction to AJ as he wouldn’t even know who he is.
    We know it isn’t steve burton. Robin couldn’t just up and come back alone out of a coma.
    I am all for replacing Jason. Steve wasn’t fired. He was tired of playing Jason and he split so I have no problem with another playing his part. I am not going to sit and mourn a guy who didn’t want to be there and I really hate it when people write they aren’t watching the show anymore like he was forced out. If they mystery person is Sean Kanan coming in to play Jason bring it on.

    as much as i have enjoyed watching Steve playing Jason all these years, i hate to say it, but you are right…he walked away from a role he has played many years…i can understand how sometimes you feel you need a change, i am working at my job 35 years, but i’m not walking away (even if many times i would love to)…it was his choice to leave and i would have no problem if they recast him as long as it was someone with the same dynamics and screen presence and connections with his co-stars…i just think if he really wanted to Steve could have worked something out..Steve Reeves family lives in TN also, but he manages to do the show and stilll live outside of LA. perhaps if he wanted SB could have asked for a bit less air time so he could spend more time with his family…anyway, it really doesnt matter anymore..he’s gone and now we all move on.

    Only Steve can play Jason. Although he was portrayed as a hit man, he came across as a caring and loving person. I for one would hate to see someone else play Jason,

    Everyone knows it is AJ and looks like Monica has known all along he was alive was he not in some kind of trouble when he fell down the staircase of course that was Billy Warlock playing him then a total miscast. And people no one is mad at Seve Burton he sold his house chose to move on they left an opening for him if he wanted to come back. End of story and let the man have some peace the economy alone is making people move out of California plus he has stated he did not want to raise his kids there. He is not a politician please take the man at his word. I may not have ever cared for his character but the actor is a good guy. His house sold he moved get over it.

    Were you his neighbour?… just wondering. It sounds like you knew him.

    ITA, This is very likely. I remembered a scene where Monica was talking to AJ’s (Lifeless) Body. So she could have hidden AJ to keep him safe. That is her voice in the promo. The scene of Patrick aired Last week when Anna Told Patrick that she thought Robin was alive.

    Brian if I told you my source I would have to just kidding a columnist I do know stated all of this in their column. I just got a little pertubed that we can not take a person at his word now if he shows up over at Y&R then I guess I eat crow. Lol!

    I don’t like him either! And they changed and destroyed my Joe Scully to have him back. ISH ISH and ISH BORING!!

    Marisa replied

    I agree. I hate Duke. What a has been!!!! He can not act because his face is so pumped up with botox and the eye lift was a botched job!!!!!

    Joe Scully was hot!!!! It was a shame to dump Joe Scully a mega hottie who can act for the expressionless, llifeless Duke!!!! Today, Joe Scully had more personality dead than Duke does alive!!!!!

    What a waste!!!!!! I love Steve Burton and I will miss him but I will miss Joe Scully just as much and he was on the Port Charles Landscape for such a short time!!!!

    I think is was politics that got him fired. I am sure some major cast mates were threatened by his good looks, charisma, and acting ability.

    Trammell replied

    I totally disagree, I think Duke being back is a stroke of genius, and I’m glad they are keeping him as a bad guy!

    This is Duke is not the same Duke I used to love. This Duke is more like Ian McAllister from Days and I didn’t like him. Is it possible that too much time has lapsed for his character to be significant in PC?
    Sean Kanan looks like Steve Burton so who knows if they recast? Like someone said before, GH has to scramble to fill this role since Steve vacated it. Can’t blame the actor though, he was over LA and can’t blame the show for wanting to continue with the character who still has more story to tell. We’ll see.

    I agree. New writers intrepretation. If they’re going to bring back a character from the dead then I wish they would at least respect the character’s personality traits. Who would want THIS guy to be with Anna??

    Linda Dowell replied

    Maybe it’s not really Duke? I didn’t watch when Duke was on before – but man, I can’t stand him now. I FF thru much of his stuff.

    Ces replied

    Why even bring him back if it’s not Duke? Honestlly, I think the character has been gone too long and now they’ve made him so nasty that he’s hard to care about.
    I don’t remember this character being as bad as he is now, but it’s been awhile; perhaps I need a refresher on why Anna fell in love with him in the first place!

    Trammell replied

    I totally disagree, I think Duke being back is a stroke of genius, and I’m glad they are keeping him as a bad guy! I’ve been sick of Jason for years, glad to see the canvas open up and less of the Sonny/Jason show.

    Ces replied

    He just reminds me more of Ian McAllister on Days than he does of Duke Lavery; the Duke I remember anyway. I’d like to root for the ol Duke & Anna but the writers are making that impossible right now.

    I do agree with you on not making it a Sonny/Jason show or a Carly show for that matter …. no one should hog up screen time unless it’s Tony Geary :)

  10. Linda Dowell says:

    Why can’t it be Steve Burton ? I read one time where he might fly into town to work – and they aren’t individually on enough now to have that be impossible.

    I hope so, anyway…..sigh. I’m sure not crazy about the time being wasted on Duke, that evil incarnate, and RC has finally disappointed me with getting rid of Scully – when he was so great with Monica.

    Sad – I thought I was on a great GH wonder experience lol!

    well, he just left the show and sold his house in LA – why would he want to fly back & forth? He’ over it.

    Linda Dowell replied

    $$$$$. He left before for a couple of years – and then came back with long hair lol. I’m sure if he could fly into LA twice a month and do a bunch of scenes and then go back to Nashville he’d do it – unless he ends up with a new job – maybe he’s going to be with Jonathan on Nashville.

    I’m very angry about the way Jason was written off. Steve/Jason deserved to be able to have air time with all the characters JAason interacts with. The fans deserved to have more time with the Jason’s new family- and for the baby to be found to be Jason’s before he left. And his leaving should have been something better written. A true story- like leaving the mob, or trying to find Robin or something where either Steve or someone else as Jason could come back- in a way that is not insulting to the viewer. Good bye GH, I’ve had it. At least for the foreseable future. I don’t want to see the reactions of his loved ones . Now MOnica is all alone. Terrible writing.

    I wanted Jason to know Danny was his baby too, and hate missing those scenes. However, I think your anger is misdirected. Steve chose to leave which I imagine was a surprise and created much work to be re-written and planned, and probably not enough time for what we wanted, before Steve left.

    I’ll miss SB, but I’m more concerned about this ridiculous storyline of Duke Lavery’s return. :)

    Why would they bother shooting Jason and throwing him in the water if they planned to recast him right away? It’s gotta be AJ.

    It has nothing to with Jason ..
    (and with Patrick it is about Robin ..

    I agree. Plus AJ returning would definitely put Carly on edge so it makes sense to show her in the promo – be it Jason being presumed dead or AJ returning from the dead.

    Well in OLTL one Todd was replaced with another Todd….Plus they haven’t found Jason’s body…Hmmmm!!!!!!! Don’t you find that an opening for something unexpected!!!!
    The mystery where’s Jason’s body if they can’t find it???? My idea is his body drifted somewhere on land & someone found him & is taking care of him………It’s happen before on the soaps………….

    I think Sean Kanan will be back as AJ, as it should be. There is only one Jason (imo), and that is most definitely Steve Burton. Good promo though – maybe misleading, but definitely intriguing.

  18. Christine says:

    I think they want to throw us on a little “wild duck hunt,” as Ricky Ricardo would say. The man in the dark is either Jason or AJ and the woman in the boots is trying to lead us to believe it is Robin.

    I heard Robin calls the house and Emma answers, so she is adding to the mystery for the fall storylines.

    I’m interested in who this Sabrina really is too. I have heard she could be a plant for Duke or Anna’s believed-to-be-dead daughter, Leora Hayward. It is all very interesting.

    I think that Sean will be probably be coming back as ” JASON” and not as A.J…. but
    how ever anybody’s guess is as good as mine.. anyways I’ll surely miss Steve Burton as Jason Morgan on the show.. and wish him the good luck !

    That’s be nice. I’ve always felt bad for Monica, because the previous regime killed off all her family. I also felt bad because Jason didn’t have much to do with her. I’m hoping that the show can finally move away from Sonny and the mob and find a new pulse, pun intended. Long live ONE LIFE TO LIVE.

    Hopefully, today’s episode (with Monica looking at pictures of Jason and SK’s AJ in the family album) will finally put to rest all of the silly rumors about SK being a Jason recast. First of all, even though I’ve never been much of a fan of the character, Jason is too iconic a role to be recast and FV and RC know it. Secondly, it’s been repeatedly stated that the door is being left open for SBu to return if or when he chooses. I’m looking forward to AJ’s storyline.

    I know Steve walked away. He was tired. He played Jason “on and off” , mostly on, for about 20 years. He said he loves the show, his co-workers, the entire staff and all his fans, but he needed a break. He has a couple of young kids to help raise and wanted to spend time with them. When you work on a daily soap, you often have to work late hours. He needs to be there for his kids. Maybe he’ll get tired of whatever he’s going to do in Tennessee and come back. I hope they don’t replace his character so he can come back. I’m sure that most of his fans would welcome him back with Open Arms. I hope very much that he enjoys his time off, but I also hope he comes back to GH. He will be truly missed.

    Glad abut afew things.
    Glad that Jason is dead, and hoes that he stays that way. Also glad that it is Monica Quartermaine that will expedite the return of her son Alan Jr. I always wished that Jason woulda died instead of AJ . With Jason and Edward dead the Quartermaines are facin extinction. With that, I am glad that AJ is coming back to have scenes with Monica, Tracy, Carly, Sonny, andmost importantly Michael.

    Jason and Robin should stay dead. That would be on my wishlist. Also I would let Heather eliminate Liv as well. That girl is just dumb and needs to go!!!!!!!!!
