General Hospital Spoilers: Is This Steve Burton’s New Replacement?

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest, it looks like Evan’s character Dex may be someone with or without a past. While he’s going to approach Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) with the hopes of landing a job, there’s some speculation already that he might have arrived in Port Charles with an agenda. That, or he could be working for one of the rival crime families and is trying to infiltrate from within. 

That said, Maurice Benard already has great things to say about Evan! “This guy is on the money,” the Emmy winner tweeted about his new co-star. Evan replied with, “Thank you for your guidance! I couldn’t ask for a better mentor (and boss).”

Of course, it didn’t take very long for General Hospital fans to respond to the news. Many of them took to social media to write, “It sounds like this guy is going to be Sonny’s right hand man which means he might be the new Jason Morgan in town. I’m liking this already,” along with, “While there’s no way that anyone could ever replace Steve Burton, I like where this is going. The soap needed some fresh blood on the show.”
