“I’ve always been partial to the Irish goodbye. That’s where you leave the party without actually telling anyone you’re gone,” he said in the clip.

The GH star continued, “I’ve loved every minute that I’ve been here. I want to thank the entire cast and crew for allowing me to share their stage this past 10 years. Most importantly, I want to thank all of you for the kindness and love you’ve shown me and my family. I won’t ever forget you.”

It was shared that the stint in rehab is supposed to be about three months. So, fans have been holding out hope that Michael Easton will return to reprise his role in the future.
