General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) will likely be presumed dead after a Cassadine Island escape ends in tragedy. Steve Burton is set to make a speedy exit from the show according to reliable insiders, so let’s talk about Jason’s departure and how it’ll all play out.
GH fans know Jason is stuck on Cassadine Island with Drew Cain (Cameron Mathison), Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) and Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati). They’re all Peter August’s (Wes Ramsey) hostages, but Jason and Drew are hoping to gain the upper hand.
Of course, Peter has proven he shouldn’t be underestimated since he keeps surviving deadly attempts on his life. Drew and Jason will certainly be in grave danger as the chaos on Cassadine Island gets worse.
It looks like the show’s building to some dramatic cliffhanger on November 22, which is a significant airdate.
Ingo Rademacher’s (Jasper “Jax” Jacks) last episode will air that same day, so it makes sense that Burton will take his final bow then as well. Both GH stars are set to leave the show abruptly.
After the situation escalates on Cassadine Island and ends with this big cliffhanger, those remaining on the island will wait for updates on November 23.
It makes sense that Jason may take a tumble into the dark water below – forcing Drew to frantically search for his twin brother and come up empty.
When Drew reconvenes with Britt and Liesl, he may have no real news to report. Jason may simply disappear and be presumed dead as a result.
This seems like a quick and easy exit strategy to whisk Jason off canvas.
Naturally, a presumed death offers the possibility of a return or recast somewhere down the line. It will also allow Jason’s loved ones to hold out hope back in Port Charles, so that should make this exit a little less somber than if Jason were dead-dead.
Nevertheless, Britt should feel guilty when she returns home Jason-less! As for Peter, he seems poised to pull another vanishing act before his eventual last stand back in Port Charles.
As other details emerge, we’ll keep you posted. General Hospital spoilers say Jason’s exit should come with some shockers, so don’t miss all the action.
