Daytime Emmy Award winner Steve Burton played General Hospital’s Jason Quartermaine Morgan from 1991 to 2012. This week, he returns to Port Charles. But will he be playing Jason again?
That’s the million dollar question and for all the money of the Quartermaines, Cassadines and Corinthos’ combined, we don’t have an answer…yet. There is speculation however. When Franco (Roger Hogwath) found an old photograph of himself as a child with a blonde-haired boy he identified as Jason and tried to determine their connection, I believed this blonde boy was Jason’s long-lost twin (Viewers will remember that at one time Franco himself thought he was Jason’s twin based on a lie he was told). So, course my reasoning was that Steve Burton will be playing the adult version of Jason’s twin. That way, there will be no need to explain away the current Jason (Bill Miller) isn’t really Jason with Burton back. When Miller joined General Hospital in 2014, his face was hidden until Jason was the victim of being hit by a car. In the story line this John Doe’s (who later adopted the moniker Jake Doe) face suffered extensive damage requiring plastic surgery. Viewers knew he was Jason but it would be a while until he learned the truth. Requiring plastic surgery easily explained why Billy Miller no longer looked like Steve Burton’s Jason Morgan.
Last week, Ava Jerome (Maura West) arrived at a clinic after making an unholy alliance deal with Valentine Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart). Ava hopes to have her face restored to its original beauty after receiving extensive burns in the warehouse fire. She meets a mysterious patient, whose face is covered. Who is this man?
The Inquisitr has a theory. Read about it here:
Regardless of what character he turns out to be, General Hospital fans will be happy to have Steve Burton back in Port Charles.
