Breaking news: Steve Burton leaving 'General Hospital' after 21 years - Riverside Soap Opera | Examiner.com
There have been rumors about Steve Burton wanting out for years, but it never happened. I can't say I'm unhappy. I think Jason's been painted into a corner and they're just giving him the same storyline over and over again. Because he said he'd leave if they gave him back his memory, I don't see where else they could have gone with him.
The only question is how he will exit. Will he leave town or will he be killed off?
I've also read rumors that Lynn Herring (aka Lucy Coe) is coming back, along with some other old characters. I've also seen rumors that two OLTL characters will come to town, but one will be just to wrap up a storyline. My guess is that it's either Natalie, who will really end things with John and make him free to pursue Sam OR it will be Victor, which will prove Todd's innocence.
