General Hospital (GH) spoilers reveal that Jason Morgan’s return was foreshadowed recently, so GH is hinting at Steve Burton’s comeback. Let’s talk about some big clues that played out on the December 22 episode and consider what they mean for the character’s future.
When Danny Morgan (Zakary Risinger) showed up at the Quartermaine mansion wearing his new leather jacket, Drew Cain (Cameron Mathison) commented on how he looked just like Jason.
Since Drew knew Danny was missing his dad, he made a sweet speech about what a hero Jason was.
Later, Danny sat down with Monica Quartermaine (Leslie Charleson) to check out some old photos and hear some stories about Jason.
After Danny saw a pic of Jason on his motorcycle, he insisted he’d learn how to ride that when he was old enough.
Monica replied that all Danny had to do was be very careful and enjoy every single moment of it. She assured Danny that’s what his dad would want.
The camera then panned over to a photo of Jason – and it really felt like a significant moment.
After all, the ABC soap didn’t have to include an actual pic of Jason on screen.
They could’ve just let Danny and Monica’s conversation be the end of it, but they went ahead and showed us a reminder of Jason. Not only that, but they showed us Burton’s version!
That suggests that instead of letting Jason stay dead or bringing in a recast, the show plans to bring Steve Burton back as Jason Morgan.
Of course, it’s possible the move was more about closure, but the truth is Jason was only presumed dead. That makes it even easier for Jason to return somewhere down the road.
Without a body as proof, it’ll be easy to explain away Jason’s death when the time is right. Burton was forced off the show after refusing to comply with the vaccine mandate, but he might change his mind and work out a new deal eventually.
You never really know what might go down behind the scenes, but it makes sense for GH to want Burton back since he was quite popular as Jason.
In other words, there’s hope for Jason Morgan’s return sooner or later! It may just be a matter of staying patient and awaiting an exciting comeback arc.
General Hospital spoilers say Jason is already missed by many fans, so stay tuned to see if Steve Burton will return to the role.
