It is Soap Dish time again my friends and this week I am dishing all about the death of General Hospital’s Jason Morgan. It was quite a week on my favorite daytime soap and one that saw the loss of a beloved actor and character.
Although for a couple of months fans have known that Steve Burton, who played the character of Jason Morgan, was leaving didn’t make watching the death of Jason any easier. In true soap fashion GH set it up so that the character of Jason could come back. The residents of Port Charles may believe that the quiet hit-man is dead but given fans didn’t actually see him die that means there is room for a return. Plus GH has added a past character into the mix that very well could fill part of the hole left by Jason, I am not spilling on that yet.
I think that the powers that be at GH handled the demise of Jason very well, unlike the whole Robin death which was just crappy in my eyes but that is for another day. It was not dramatic, it was a cliff hanger to an extent and will impact the lives of oh so many which means great stories are ahead for sure. I am not usually a big fan of the whole fake death thing for a character when an actor decided to leave a show but in this case I admit I am very pleased.
In case you are a little out of what is going on Bernie called Jason to he pier, Jason saw Bernie get shot then Duke shot Jason and pushed him into the water. It doesn’t sound like much but trust me it was good. I am sad that Jason and his portrayer Steve Burton are no longer on GH, I would be lying if I said anything different. As I watched the weeks events unfold I was once again reminded why General Hospital is the best soap opera on daytime television.
The time to say good bye to Jason Morgan came this week. It is the end of an era for sure. I wish Steve Burton the best of luck in his new adventures and I can’t wait to see him on TV again. As for Jason, well something tells me that his death will forever change Port Charles and I can’t ait to see how it plays out.
That is it for this weeks edition of Soap Dish be sure to check back next week to see what I am dishing about.
