Despite Jason’s unsolved murder and apparent exit from General Hospital, a lot of fans, including myself think that Steve Burton’s sudden disappearance from the soap is a great loss. In fact, many are still hoping that he would reappear and be with Sam again since their love story is one of the best on the soap opera.
There is no doubt that Jason and Sam are one of GH’s super couples. Tracing their romance back to 2004, their love story is one filled with so many challenges. In fact, their first meeting was made possible by an arrest. They even fought a lot and there was a lot of tension that has been created between them. But this relationship is one of the best since it has a lot of trust and acceptance in it. Their love for each other is not one that began with a spark but one that grew over time. It is one that is so strong that it has even survived amnesia, and even near death episodes!
This relationship which started with the need to protect Sam paved the way for their bond to become stronger. This is a relationship that has seen both the worst and the good in each other, and to me, they should be back together. I am hoping for a sudden reappearance of Jason into the soap opera since Jason’s body has never been recovered. It’s just not the same without Jason in the show.
Can you imagine the chaos it will cause Port Charles upon learning that Jason is actually alive? He helped make the show quite interesting. They should bring Jason back just like how they brought his “supposed to be dead” brother back, just at a faster rate. To me, killing him on the show after 21 years is just ridiculous! But leaving the story line open ended was also brilliant since it can give Jason the chance to reemerge when the plot provides for the scenario. The lives at Port Charles will surely be shaken, especially that of his murderer Duke Avery.
Audiences will also be in for a treat. Will Sam wait for the love of her life to come back to her, or will she grieve forever knowing that Jason will never come back? Or will their love story continue on? I do hope Jason “comes back to life” and give GH and Sam the love story it deserves. After all, this will make the twists and turn of events at Port Charles really, really interesting.
