DC is reporting that Steve Burton will most likely leave the soap he has called home, on and off, since 1991.
Discuss.August 23, 2012 at 6:41 pm #423159
I could really careless w/this. It would be comically ironic if he gets killled off since it would continue the trend of getting rid of that family. Sam can either be independent woman or if she must be w/someone John. As for Liz, get her in a romance w/someone in the hospital like Patrick.August 23, 2012 at 10:20 pm #423161
I am so thrilled to hear this. Frankly, Jason is a character in need of a long, long rest. Burton has looked bored for years and has phoned it in for over a decade. I can’t recall a moment since the 90’s that I’ve even liked his work.August 24, 2012 at 1:31 am #423162
Oh god, please please please be true. Jason was one of the characters that helped ruin the show, so him leaving would be a great thing. Maybe he can take Sonny and Carly with him.August 24, 2012 at 8:06 pm #423163
I hope the writers can resist killing him off. Death on GH has been done far too much. I’d like to see Jason simply renounce his violent life and leave town once and for all. Perhaps taking Carly or Sam (or both) with him.August 28, 2012 at 8:51 am #423164
Whoa, I was away for like a week and I feel like the soap world got a little crazy behind the scenes with people not renewing their contracts! This was the one that really surprised me. I know a lot of people around here aren’t a fan of Jason, but I guess to me he’s always been kind of the bright spot of the whole Sonny/Jason/Carly/Sam part of the show. Oh, well.August 28, 2012 at 3:34 pm #423165
I really like Jason. He’s one of the only people that can get through to Sonny. He’s been rumored to be leaving or take a long vacation for about two years now. I was hoping he and Elizabeth got back together. Jason and Sam are boring to me. He does need a better storyline.August 28, 2012 at 4:03 pm #423166
What I like about this is that it will absoultely force the writers to come up with a new concept for the show and will open up screentime for a lot of other characters that previously went w/out. I’d love to see some time now dedicated to Alexis being developed fully.
I take back my earlier statement, kill Jason and kill him so well that he can never be brought back. Have his death teach Sonny and Carly a lesson once and for all about their lives, forcing everybody to change how they live.August 28, 2012 at 9:20 pm #423167
I am wondering how they will do this b/c there’s so many stories that could be done that could spawn off other stories that could have lasting effects. Glad that he’s doing this for him and his family. Would rather someone bow out gracefully than collect a paycheck and phone it in (MAURICE!).August 29, 2012 at 12:18 am #423168
Jason leaving either through death or otherwise will have lasting and immedite impact on almost everybody— Sonny, Carly, Sam, Michael, Monica, Elizabeth and so on.
It will definetly open up screentime for other performers, and I’m hoping will mark a huge turn-around for the show.August 29, 2012 at 11:00 am #423169
He’s going to Y&R. JFP and him are best buds.
The problem is that McBain is basically Jason all over again. Another unemotive, cyborg played by a lazy actor. At least Burton was kind of hot, even with all the bloating. I’ll miss him though.August 29, 2012 at 11:55 am #423170
If he is killed off it will be all about killing the person who killed him and it will be the same thing. He should just leave because he’s tired of being a killer for hire and the basic fact that he is no different than his evil brother.August 29, 2012 at 12:51 pm #423171
I don’t think they’ll kill him off because he says he’s open to recurring or doing brief off and on storylines. IF they do it will be one of those mystery body never found stuff.
It’s interesting that although he is a “hit man” he’s one of the central characters that gets along with most of the other characters unlike Sonny.
With him leaving I think there will be an immediate slight void for men match up for the remaining ladies. Especially with Ewen being linked to Jerry Jax. Then there’s Johnny lol.August 29, 2012 at 5:15 pm #423172

Nahhh… you have plenty of men to pick from.August 29, 2012 at 5:17 pm #423173

I’d like to see Jason just die of natural causes. Perhaps he has a brain hemmorage and dies in his sleep? It would be totally unexpected and surprising and leave a whole in everybody’s life.
