With the story of the two Jasons on GENERAL HOSPITAL, there's one important piece of the puzzle that hasn't been addressed yet — but it's about to be when Kimberly McCullough returns as Robin for another appearance! "We got to do some scenes," Steve Burton said of his castmate in a recent Facebook Live Q&A. "I can't wait for those to air. So great."

As devoted GH fans know, McCullough's Robin was instrumental in bringing Jason back to life at the shady Chrichton-Clark Clinic. But after she succeeded in resurrecting him as a test subject for Victor Cassadine, who hoped to bring back his cryogenically frozen family members, Jason took off and was hit by Ava's car. Not only was Jason left with amnesia, but he also required facial reconstruction surgery that left him looking like a completely different person (Billy Miller, to be specific)!
With Steve Burton's return to GH, everyone in Port Charles wants to know which of the two men is the real Jason Morgan. And besides that, exactly how each man got to where he is today! Hopefully, Robin can fill in some of those blanks! At this time the soap has released no details of McCullough's airdates or the length of her stint this time around.
The actress was last seen in May of this year when Robin returned for the Nurses Ball and got herself kidnapped by Olivia Jerome. Oh, and she also revealed to Anna that she was pregnant, since the soap chose wrote in McCullough's real-life pregnancy!

Since 2014, McCullough has been returning to GH for appearances of varying lengths depending on the storyline and her schedule. In the past, she told Soaps In Depth that “it’s always great” to go back. “It feels like a nice little visit,” she confided. “I get excited, like I’m going on vacation sort of — a working vacation!”
In addition to her acting, McCullough has also stepped behind the camera, directing episodes of PRETTY LITTLE LIARS as well as her own project, HEY DAY, and more recently, the online series YOUTH & CONSEQUENCES. McCullough admitted that when she returns to GH, she likes to make a point of hanging out behind the scenes as well. “I always try to pop into the booth with the director, assistant director, lighting coordinator and producers,” she reports. “That’s where I got the bug to be a director, so I usually grab one of the free chairs and sit for a while.”
