General Hospital Scripts Tweaked – Love Scenes Cut?

While it’s terrific news that GH is close to airing fresh episodes, some fan-favorite scenes are sure to be impacted. To accommodate the new protocol, writers had to tweak the scripts for General Hospital. So, fans should brace themselves for fewer romantic scenes. No doubt, JaSam fans are itching for Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) to reunite.

Recently, spoilers suggested they would find their way back to each other. Now, JaSam shippers may need to wait a little longer. But, fans will probably take whatever they can get as long as production is back up and running.
