What happens next could change everything!

Well, we knew (or at least strongly suspected) it was comingโ€ฆ and we even sort of anticipated how things would play out. But when the literal dust cleared following the collapse of the tunnels beneath Cassadine Island, it seemed we finally got our answer as to how General Hospital would be writing off both Jason and Steve Burtonโ€ฆ if not how long his absence might last.

For weeks, rumors have circulated that Burton would be exiting the soapโ€ฆ although the actor himself has remained notably quiet on the topic, even as he has continued to post on social media and host his popular podcast with co-star Bradford Anderson (Spinelli). In fact, Burtonโ€™s silence has led many to speculate that whatโ€™s really taking place is a massive publicity stunt designed to get people talking (and tuning in) during the all-important November sweeps ratings period.

If thatโ€™s the case, itโ€™s certainly worked. Leading up to the episode airing on Friday, November 19th, talk among fans had reached a fevered pitch. And when the hour ended with the tunnels collapsing, many felt that theyโ€™d gotten their answer. Yet when Mondayโ€™s episode revealed that Jason was missing, it did nothing to quell speculation. Fan reaction ranged from denialโ€ฆ

The two big questions now are how long Jason remains โ€œmissingโ€ and what happens to those he left behind, especially if they presume heโ€™s แด…ษชแด‡แด…?

Given that this isnโ€™t the first time Jason has โ€œแด…ษชแด‡แด…,โ€ itโ€™s easy to see why many viewers assume this is a temporary situation and that both he and Burton will eventually rise from the grave in which the character was temporarily (and mistakenly) placed.

Above: First Sonny and then Jason โ€œแด…ษชแด‡แด….โ€ Weโ€™re starting to think maybe Carlyโ€™s cursed!

Perhaps the person whoโ€™ll be hardest hit by Jasonโ€™s latest โ€œdemiseโ€ is Carly, who was attempting to reach him even as those on Cassadine Island were dealing with the collapse. During Sonnyโ€™s time as Mike, she and Jason had rediscovered their feelings for one another, married and were on the verge of giving in to their growing passion when her not-as-แด…แด‡แด€แด…-as-believed husband strolled back into the picture.

Since then, Sonny and Carlyโ€™s relationship has been strained, with each keeping things from the other and both realizing their time apart had changed them. Might losing Jason, the friend both loved with all of their hearts, bring Sonny and Carly closer togetherโ€ฆ or drive them even further apart?

Then thereโ€™s Britt, the woman who โ€” against all odds โ€” Jason had begun to fall for. It was a pairing nobody (including us!) saw coming, but one which quickly grew far more serious than either could have imagined. Already facing a health crisis, will the brunette beauty ignore whatโ€™s in her own best interest in favor of wallowing in her grief?

And of course, Jasonโ€™s supposed แด…แด‡แด€แด›สœ will no doubt have an impact on the women who for so many years found themselves drawn to him. Elizabeth and Sam have each moved into new relationships, yet their ties to Jason can never be severed thanks to the children he gave them, Danny and Jake.

The Quartermaine clan might also be thrown into disarray as could, yet again, the future of ELQ. Already, the clan is still dealing with the arrival of interloper Austin and his claim against the company. How might Jasonโ€™s latest แด…แด‡แด€แด›สœ impact the power plays already in motion

Interestingly, the life which might most be impacted is that of a man to whom Jason shared a lifelong bond despite them ultimately knowing little about one another. Drew and Jason have shared lives and loves, names and even transplanted memories. But only over these past few weeks did they truly bond. Itโ€™s no surprise that after the tunnel collapse, Drewโ€™s first instinct was to say that he wouldnโ€™t leave without his brother.

Itโ€™s safe to assume that as headwriters Chris Van Etten and Dan Oโ€™Connor warned during our recent chat, โ€œthe events which unfolded on Cassadine Island will ripple across Port Charles for months to come.โ€ But now, letโ€™s hear your thoughtsโ€ฆ is Jason really แด…แด‡แด€แด…, or will he eventually make a โ€œsurprisingโ€ return? Who do you think will be most impacted by his absence? Check out our in-depth preview and predictions of how Jasonโ€™s demise will impact Port Charles in the photo gallery below.

The Mourning After
Sonny will be lost without his right-hand man. But having just come back from the แด…แด‡แด€แด… himself, will the erstwhile โ€œMikeโ€ ever truly believe that Jason is pushing up daisies? Or will he move heaven and earth to find proof that his BFF isnโ€™t just wandering around out there with amnesia?

Canโ€™t Spell โ€˜Friendโ€™ Without โ€˜Endโ€™
Carlyโ€™s grief will be massive, especially seeing as Jason was reintroduced to his maker โ€” or so it appears โ€” so soon after the two of them rediscovered romantic feelings for one another that they thought had been buried long ago.

Monica advises Austin GH

The Mother Lode
Since Jason, Drew and A.J. have all โ€œแด…ษชแด‡แด…โ€ before, youโ€™d think Monica might take her favorite sonโ€™s latest demise in stride. But in her grief, expect her to cling extra tightly to Jasonโ€™s โ€œlateโ€ twin, Drewโ€ฆ and maybe even bond with new Q Austin.

Britt gets a warning GH

Looking for a New Love
Britt had started something tantalizing with Jason that ended not once (when he married Carly) but twice (when he bit the dust). Watch for her to redefine โ€œon the reboundโ€ โ€” possibly into Drewโ€™s arms.

Drew stops Jason GH

The Weight of the World
Mind-control issues notwithstanding, Drew will likely take it upon himself to carry the burden of his ill-fated brotherโ€™s responsibilities. Will that include becoming a bigger factor in the life of Sam, the woman they both loved?

Michael is happy about Nina's arrest GH

Little Boy Lost
Without Jason to act as the angel on his shoulder, Michael might crank up his ruthless side even further in his pursuit of โ€œjusticeโ€ against Nina โ€” in the process driving an even bigger wedge between himself and Willow.

Not-So-Merry โ€˜Widowโ€™
It was already over between Sam and Jason, but his passing certainly makes it seem over-over. Knocked for a loop by the loss, the former Mrs. Stone Cold is sure to double down on her commitment to Dante.

Itโ€™s Now or Never
Jasonโ€™s other major ex, Elizabeth, might view his โ€œแด…แด‡แด€แด›สœโ€ on the heels of Francoโ€™s as a pointed reminder that life is as uncertain as it is short. As such, sheโ€™d better make the most of what time she has โ€” with Finn.

As news of Jasonโ€™s โ€œแด…แด‡แด€แด›สœโ€ spreads, ส™แด€แด…แด…ษชแด‡s like Cyrus will see opportunities aplenty. Without his muscle to protect him, Sonny and his turf will be more vulnerable than ever. So the mobster is going to need โ€” and fastโ€ฆ
