Quote Mother of an Angel: I don't find either to be traitors. Burton moved to TN with his family, and asked GH for more time off. For the salary they were offering, they refused. Y&R made him an offer that allowed more time off and decent pay.
The same goes for Tristan. He's not under contract, so there is no guarantee of the amount of work he'll get with GH. He was offered a contract elsewhere, so he knows how much he'll be working, how much income he'll have and for how long.
Just like most of us would, they took the better offer.
GH is stupid for not signing TR on to a new contract. Just look at the scenes between him and FH, even after all these years and months and years of not working together, the chemistry between them is so obvious.
Personally I was always more of a Robert/Anna fan then I was Anna/ Duke fan.
Always thought the chemistry between TR and FH was stronger and better.
