Steve Burton Speaks on Jason Morgan, General Hosptial Spoilers

by at . Comments

Warning: The following may contain General Hospital spoilers.

Steve Burton recently took the time to discuss his character's recent interactions and relationships on the show. He talked about how, after his adoptive little sister Emily Quartermaine (Natalia Livingston) was strangled to death, Jason was devastated because he was quite protective of her.

Overflowing with remorse, Jason turns to Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst) for comfort, especially after hearing his ex-lover's moving eulogy for his sister.

"He goes to Elizabeth's house because he doesn't know where else to go," Burton explained. "She comes in and sees him. They hug and she leads him upstairs."

As Jason and Elizabeth give in to their emotions and eventually hop into bed, another question emerges: Is Jake safe with his mobster father?

"That's been the sticking point this whole time," the General Hospital star said. "Elizabeth thinks Jake would be safer if Lucky [Greg Vaughan] was the father. The danger is real, something could happen. Especially now with Johnny Zacchara [taking over the mob] and watching what his dad has done. He's a nut job.

Jason says, 'Do I want my kid to be in that kind of life?' He starts thinking about all that."

Though Jason is Jake's biological father, he ponders the fact that police officer Lucky, Jason's legal father, wants everyone to keep thinking he's Jake's dad to protect him. Moreover, given that Lucky has the child's best interest at heart, he can't disagree with that.

"He has to take the emotion out of it, which is hard at this point, because his sister just died. Jason finally said that Jake is his son, and that he loves Elizabeth. The next logical step would be for them to get together. But Jason's business is always in the way," Burton said.

What i dont understand why would anyone in their right mind want elizabitch with a killer mob man, she has two kids now.. by ONS and she didnt like his life with she had no kids, she still dont like it.. and yet people want these two pathetic actors together, why so we can watch liz act like carly when cam or mogan geta a bullent in his head. this is so stupid for the writers to want put these two together Liz is not a strong character she is not mob material she is better at being a nurse behind the desk,,, at gh,,, she needs to leave jason alone live for her kids do her best as mother and forget jason, she had him in the sack.. she got a taste of him. let it go ..... i say go her silly butt back to lucky, but get away from jason because these two are friends off screen and they look so uncomfortable together.. they look tense SB loosk bored.. RB looks nervous.. its hard to be a lover with friend... on screen then knowing your wife or husband is watching.. Jason and liz dont get it... JMO.

He needs to go his crazy butt back to Sam, then he wouldnt have to live with his secret box of pain. he and sam got through alot more than just liz having his bastard child... He could be a part of the kids life at least not never see it.. not have to hear liz play the keep Jake safe card.. on him.. she makes me sick she dont even look right with him.. she is an oddball for jason.. Sam is the one for jason.. Liz sucks.. and Liason sucks.... everyone knows it.. thats why guza is dragging it out.. hopiing it will go away.... because he knows sam and jason belong together..

Guza give Jason and Liz a storyline and more scenes together. They have more chemistry in the few seconds they are on a month than any other couple on the show who have daily scenes.

Jason and Liz belong together. Jason needs to claim his son and Liz. This story line sucks. Jason pawns his son off on Lucky cause it is to dangerous, so now he is going to go protect Sonnys kids cause Sonny is to dangerous to be arround his kids. Michaels shooting was tragic, but it was Carly and Sonny's neglects that caused it.
