‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Jason Morgan Brain Issues & Steve Burton Contract Renewal

General Hospital spoilers wonder if Jason Morgan‘s accident is to clear the way for Steve Burton to take time off from the sudser. No doubt, there are many different avenues they can go with Stone Cold. It looks like he’s waking up, but there are also signs Burton may be off the set right now.

Jason Morgan in Bad Shape on General Hospital

Recently, Jason Morgan lost control of his motorcycle on GH, and is currently unconscious after brain surgery. No doubt, Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) is behind the accident. However, Brando Corbin (Johnny Wactor) looks guilty thanks to bad timing on General Hospital. He promises he’s innocent but his woman wants someone to blame.

Sam McCall (Lindsay Hartley) wants a scapegoat most of all. Now, this tragedy may open the door to several possibilities for Jason on GH. Sadly, there is a chance Jason Morgan could be unseen on General Hospital for a while. Right now, Steve Burton is reportedly enjoying some time off from the daytime drama.

Of course – it was just a few days ago that he posted he was glad to be back – but then seems to be away again. So, there’s some questions cropping up we hope to have answered soon on General Hospital.

General Hospital Spoilers: Jason Morgan (Steve Burton)

What is Steve Burton Up to – On Break from GH?

General Hospital spoilers suspect Jason Morgan might be off the canvas at some point. Currently, there is no official word. However, with the actor back in Tennessee, it might go that way. Perhaps, Steve Burton wanted to stick close to family back in Nashville with COVID issues still ongoing.

Recently, Jason’s alter-ego posted pictures with his children, so it looks like he’s not on the set currently. Perhaps, Burton filmed General Hospital scenes in a day or two then went back home for a bit. But, could there be more to this?

Remember, Steve inked a three-year contract with General Hospital. And that was three years ago. He began shooting scenes as Jason Morgan again in August, 2017, so he’s up for renewal. ABC’s known to sideline actors during contract negotiations. So, maybe GH back-burners Jason while they hammer out a deal.

Jason Exits General Hospital Short-Term?

Currently on GH, things look bad for Jason Morgan. So, if Steve is on hiatus, rather than just a short trip to TN, the writers have lots of options. They can fake his death again as they’ve seemingly done with Marcus Taggert (Real Andrews). Some fans wonder if this latest brain injury might revert him back to being Jason Quartermaine again.

General Hospital spoilers also wonder if Jason and Jordan Ashford (Briana Henry) might use this incident to their advantage against Cyrus. Wait to see what General Hospital does with Jason. If there are contract issues, Jason may step away for a while.

Then again, maybe ABC daytime already inked a new contract with Steve Burton. So, continue to watch GH and see what happens when Jason Morgan wakes up and what the future holds for him on ABC daytime.
