He signed a one-year contract in October 2016, but there has been no news as to whether "General Hospital" will renew it or not. Spoilers have announced that Steve Burton will return to Port Charles on Tuesday and that Franco will be the first to see him.

This would seem to indicate that Burton will not be the face of Jason should he emerge from his coma.

The most likely scenario is that Steve Burton will end up being Jason's twin, and he was the little boy Franco played with as a child. This would explain the photo and also Betsy Frank's reaction. She came to Port Charles for "Bobby's" art show and on Monday and her adopted son asked her about the little boy in the photo. She asked him to come to her hotel room so she could give him the answers he needs, but when Franco arrived his mother had checked out.

Billy Miller fans deserve truthful answers

If Jason were to wake up from his comatose state, with Burton's face, this would not answer Franco's questions about the child in the photo. It would, however, explain why Billy Miller has not been seen since his character was hospitalized.

There is something about this plot that has not yet been revealed so viewers need to pay close attention to detail Because Billy Miller continues to be MIA, without an explanation, it causes intrigue regarding the return of Steve Burton.
