GENERAL HOSPITAL: Who Is Going To Turn Out To Be Drew? Who Is Going To Turn Out To Be Jason?

Courtesy/ABC

On Monday’s episode of General Hospital, the two Jasons find out through DNA evidence, brought to them courtesy of Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), that they are indeed twins.

They both share the same DNA. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) along with Sam (Kelly Monaco) are present for the news. Jason/Patient Six then tells them that Liz (Rebecca Herbst) told him Susan had given birth to twins, while Jason mentions trying to get Intel out of Franco’s (Roger Howarth) mom before she skipped town. Jason tells Jason/Six that he is Drew, but Jason/Six fires back the only name he has ever known is “Jason”.

Carly wants more fingerprint testing, but Jordan squelches that, and reveals that Helena wiped out all of Jason’s records in the PCPD database.  All roads now lead to Franco, who is covering up the truth so the real Jason does not get close to Liz, because if so, he feels he would lose her.

Later when confronted by the group, Franco reveals that Dr. Andre Maddox (Anthony Montgomery) holds the key.  Jordan is going to put out an APB on the shrink. After throwing them off the track, somewhat, Franco burns the evidence that Andre gave him proving who the real Jason truly is!

So, do you think it will go as most people think … that Steve Burton will reclaim the role of Jason, while Billy Miller will play Drew? Could there be a swerve or twist coming? Share your thoughts in the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for GH where viewers get their first glimpse of Tamara Braun in her new role.

Tamara Braun sighting! I can’t wait for her new character to hit the scene and add another layer to this already compelling and intriguing story. It’s been a long time since GH has done an umbrella story that has actually caught my attention like this one has. And with so many twists sprinkled along the way, it makes the weeks of Steve Burton being confined to the clinic with a face mask on and no lines to say worth it.

Jimh

I think she and Patient6 are Oliver’s parents…

Satan

“Patient 6” is the real Jason Morgan. He was nowhere near San Diego in 2003. Drew is probably Oscar’s daddy. But of course when TB meets Jason, she might THINK he’s her ex, since he’s a twin brother. Oscar’s probably met his father already and doesn’t even realize it, even if he saw a picture in his mom’s personal belongings…. because Drew don’t look like that anymore.

Believe me, I dated twin succubi for a while, and it was sometimes a challenge to tell them apart. Though sometimes that was also part of the fun…. but that’s not an appropriate story for this board.

Francesca Bruno

That is a good possibility, Jimh. A stronger possibility is Satan’s explanation.
Oscar does not recognize Jason-Billy because of his different face.

If he should come face to face with Patient6, Oscar will recognize him as his father, for obvious reasons.

I believe there will be a twist and we will all be surprised. We all expect Steve to be the original Jason. No mystery there. But, having Billy as original Jason should prove to be petrifying. Therein lies the climax to the plot.

Celia

I sort of said the same thing, Jimmy……albeit both Satan’s and Francesca’s theories are sooo very feasible….probably most sensible.
But, it’s a soap….it’s not supposed to make sense.
Su and I think Franco fits in this dilemma like a glove….just saying. He has a prominent role in this.
But, I am starting to be disillusioned by Six. I am beginning to see the Stonecold, unfeeling attitude everyone was talking about. He seems to acquire a different personality when around Sonny….what a bad, negative influence. Can’t stand these people. LOL.
It’s always about Sonny, Carly and Morgan. Why is Morgan talked about as if he walked on water like his father? He was a screw-up, a liar and back stabber.
Because of Morgan’s and Kiki’s actions ( pills), Michael, who had Avery in his custody, could have had the worst accident driving under the influence. But, that was swept under the rug. And, now Kiki is persuing a career in medicine—-so unethical.
And why is 6’s disdain so strong towards Ava and not Sonny for killing his brother AJ? He paid his debt? None of us can every repay such a debt—no price on saving one’s life!!
Confounding!!……matters not when he died, the point is; why is the fact that Sonny killed AJ in cold blood not important to 6? Did he resent his brother?

Debra m

Agree with everything you said . I am surprised how much I am enjoying the two Jason story. Much improved writing, faster pacing, a good umbrella story like you said involving other characters, seeing vets like Monica involved, and of course the return of Steve Burton, who’s acting has been top notch and really looks happy to be back home at GH. Wherever this story leads I will be watching.

Celia

Yes, I also, agree with both of you. Debra, you took the words right out of my mouth. The Jason-duo is truly an amazing storyline….just caught up. Everyone involved is giving her/his all.
So happy to see Diane—hope to see more of her….Looking forward to all that will be unveiled.

Jovin

I would SO love if Billy is Jason Quartermaine, the sweater wearing medical student who was in the car accident back in 1996!!!! I hope Burton is the twin who was swapped in to take over his life and become Sonny’s enforcer!! That is the ONLY way to appease both fan bases and FINALLY give some closure to long time fans who HATED the fact that beloved Jason Q was turned into an unrepentant brain damaged murderer. I want a Jason Q who has NO ties or loyalty or even like for Sonny and Snarly. Ideally that should be Burton but this show seems set on that trio as some sort of threeway love story, so Billy can be mild mannered loveable Jason who is loyal to the Q’s and loves his family, and Burton on can be the Stone Cold murderer. This storyline is thrilling because it opens up SO many stories, and romantic possibilities! Without Sam as baggage, Miller is free to be with ANYONE, either from Jason’s past, or anyone who might come along in the future!!

KansasGuest

I agree with this. BTW, San Diego not only has a big military presence (where JasonQ could have learned combat skills). It’s also a big medical research hub. JasonQ may turn out to have medical skills he doesn’t recall. Wouldn’t that be great – to finally have another Quartermaine doctor in the lineup!

aria

oh brother, heck if i know, lol, drama drama, drama, i can’t wait to find out , looks like this storyline will have legs to keep going for a while, so this is great for us all, i’m enjoying it and hopefully more surprises are to come.

KansasGuest

Monica could tell them all that there is a way to tell one twin from the other. It involves bone marrow testing (more painful) to gauge where each child grew up and their bones developed. I think it can even be done with teeth. Something to do with isotopes in the water, and how every water source is different.

su0000

1st–
This ‘which’ is Jason has become tiresome..
It is the same ol’ being said by the same people.
I see a Jason thread (one out of a 1000) and yawn because I know it’s going to like the other 1000.

That being said and keeping it short;

SB will not be Jason Quartermain, he was not brought back to be Jason Quartermain.
He will be Drew.

BM will remain to be Jason Quartermain. he is the true Jason before his accident and becoming Jason Morgan.

We here still hold that Franco will be a twin..
Heather made sure of that 44 years ago.

In closing;
DNA tests are always wrong, in time a DNA test will be the correct one.
And that is when we get the news that Franco is indeed Jason and BM is Drew.

What is going on now is; we are being led and trolled by the writers so they have a big bang whoopee shocker bomb reveal..

Maddie

I agree … this s/l is moving along just too predictably for the truth to be revealed just now. FV wants us to believe SB is Jason and BM is Drew. But I am not convinced. Maybe its my many years being married to a detective.

Satan

The only person who could ever possibly be Frodd’s twin is Todd Manning. But he already has a twin brother, so that’s not happening either.

Jason is Jason. Drew is his twin. Frodd is a joke.

Celia

You dated two Saccubi, Satan???? One Saccubus was not enough? How can that be?? The Devil never sleeps, and Saccubi only ‘inter-involve’ with sleeping men….LOL. And, they do not stick around with one man.

conniemac

I agree with your naming the Jasons, but not with Franco in the mix. And I hope you are right and Steve Burton is Drew. It will serve Sonny and Carly right . They dropped Jason 1 for patient 6 when it fit their perception of what Jason should be — a Sonny robot, whose very existence is to serve the mafia king and queen.

I think Franco was what he remembered, Jason’s best friend. And I don’t think he pushed him down the stairs either.

su0000

hi conniemac ..
Franco is in the mix..
Heather gave 2 babies to Betsy,, One a Quartermain one hers.
Heather is the queen of switching and illusions.
It’s all in the name given and which Heather said is witch.

Heather took Drew/franco 41 years ago, Betsy never dropped him off at wherever. Most likely to sell him.. (not the 1st baby she sold)

We, are sticking with endgame- Franco is a Quartermain (as Heather has often proclaimed)

If not LOL .. then SB is Drew..

As for the DNA that is subject to change at any moment,, it’s a soap!

Celia

I keep going back and forth, conniemac….driving me nuts. So, I won’t dissect it anymore. LOL.
As I said above, I just had a clear ‘view’ of the real Jason, today—not only did I see Dylan, the Robocop, but also, Sonny’s and Carly’s puppet.
Step it up, Steve….I sooo want to keep on liking you, but you’re losing me. Snap out of IT….
I want Six back!!
Some GH fans may have a point. If Six reverts to Stonecold, then the same old, discordant music will start playing again. Sonny gives an order, Stonecold will be programmed for the bidding. Is this how it works?
Let’s hope this ‘ain’t necessarily so’.

Margie

Yawn, Su,long and wrong. Billy will be Jason Q pre accident, and Steve will be Jason waking up as Jason Morgan.

Celia

Su, I have agreed with you and you with me since the beginning of this travesty…..or tapestry; one thst tells a story. LOL….
It doesn’t make it true, of course, but, as yourself, I, also, believe Franco is a Q, and J1 is Drew, if Franco is not.
One discrepancy, SuzieQ…..how to explain the matching DNA??….which, by the way, even identical twins are not a perfect match, as the infallible PC labs say, LOL.
And….a-and, which is the brainwashed imposter?
Again; triplets? It’s time for Franco to have a DNA test himself.

Jimh

i am already growing tired of this story-it shouldnt take so long to figure who is Jason…done this same story on OLTL with the two Todds…lets move Patient6 to the next story..and i agree with what you said about Jason/Ava/Sonny…Jason should not be so chummy with the man who killed his brother and should be grateful for Ava helping him(then there is the village idiot Micheal who forgave Sonny for killing his dad)…i also think Ava and Jason6 should had fallen for each other-would love those scenes with Jason and Ava as a couple arriving at the Metro Court with Sonny and Carly in the same room…Sometimes i expect Sonny and Carly to argue over which one of them loves Jason more-now there might be two of them they each can have a Jason to love-lol

Steve

The show has invested too much time and effort establishing Scott and Franco as father and son (thus giving Kin Shriner an ongoing reason to be relevant on the show). Change Franco’s parentage again and there’s no payoff. Alan and Susan are both long gone. Monica wouldn’t view him as a son. The way Roger has played Franco, he seems to be the perfect balance of Scott and Heather.

Angelwings

There will be an initial reveal threat will turn out to be wrong and then a few months from now the final evidence will reveal that Billy Miller is the real Jason Morgan – but not before Carly and Sonny have aided P6 in trying to decimate his life. And when the dust finally settles, Jason will cut ties with those turncoats for good.

Soaphound

Oh, angelwings, bless u for spotlighting my main grumble about all this. Sonny, especially, has behaved abominably toward newJason. Did you see the look of hurt in his eyes the other day when telling Sam that Carly and Sonny have already “left him”? Heartbreaking. I wonder what would have happened during Carly’s peace mission if Jordan hadn’t interrupted. Too liitle, too late if you ask me.

Shay

Thank you, Soaphound! Sonny and Carly’s suddenly dismissive attitude toward BM’s Jason as soon as they encountered their beloved Burton version has been beyond the pale!!! Their offhanded reference to him as “Sam’s husband” and other generic terms have been quite insulting. Honestly, the only person who has truly handled this dueling Jasons situation with the proper degree of class, dignity and fairness has been Monica….I’ve truly adored how she has equally embraced both of her boys with the mother’s love they each deserve. Leslie Charleson has been utterly outstanding over these past few weeks and it has been a real joy to see her back on the GH canvas in the more active role where she has always belonged. Also, the flashbacks have been such a treat….we have been so starved of the legacy aspect of this show for an absolute age and to have it finally be highlighted and respected is a most welcome development!

Emilio

The records were actually deleted from the pcpd database because Dante ran them through the system at the station while Sam was there and got a hit but when he tried to read it it was gone. Also why isn’t anyone questioning why Helena deleted the fingerprints. That’s a huge part of the story to leave out and it goes with her plot to make jake doe her unwilling enforcer. She loved it because she told him exactly who he was and that he had a wife and son who believed he was dead and had no reason to lie because he was to forget the conversation ever happened. This story would probably be over if someone just asked why she deleted the results. The only reason would be to cover his tracks so he can continue to be Jake doe.

rose

It seems ironic that Franco is playing the same kind of deception to keep Liz that she played to keep Jason/Drew when he came back to Port Charles with no memory. And that didn’t work out for her in the long run. Franco should listen to Scotty and fess up before he gets caught and possibly losses everything that he’s worked so hard to redeem.

rebecca1

That’s what I wrote on another page, Rose. Nicolas, too, kept Jason’s (Jake’s) secret first to keep control of ELQ and then for Elizabeth. As I also wrote, its’ frustrating for the viewer! And I have no doubt that Liz will leave Franco when she finds out he lied (though I hope I’m wrong). One would think she’d understand what he did and why, considering she did the same thing! But, Liz never gives people a second shot; she’s left every relationship (except Jason)… Major flaw in her character.

rose

Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with everyones comments when you have to hop/skip between updates.

You mean Liz has flaws? Ha, Ha. Sorry Patrick.

Two things I am not liking about the Jason twins story is the hostile way Jason is acting towards Jason/Drew, and the way everyone except Monica, Curtis and Sam (so far) have turned against Jason.

I guess I should add a third,,,Carly interfering and thinking it’s all about her. No surprise here. Remind me, why didn’t Carly and Jason get together longtime originally. She’s so possessive, and you would think they were lovers and have had a long time relationship. And in other worlds Sonny would be jealous of him.

rebecca1

You’re preaching to the choir. I can’t stand Carly. She’s in everyone’s business; and she always acted like Sam came after her in Jason’s life. She’s got this sense of “ownership.” That’s one of the things I liked about Billy Miller’s Jason…he always put Sam ahead of Carly. That’s why Carly didn’t feel as close to him as she does to Burton’s Jason Morgan.

Both twins are acting hostile toward each other. Billy’s version is freaking out about losing Sam…similar to Franco freaking out about losing Elizabeth but of course no one will forgive him for it, including Liz…and Steve Burton/Jason is hostile as well…but not as overtly. He’s not in a position of power right now, he’s not currently the husband (although if he turns out to be Jason Morgan (not Jason Q) then he’s technically Sam’s husband and Billy’s Jason’s marriage is null and void.

I don’t remember why they didn’t get together originally. I think she flirted her butt off with him and had a mad crush…not sure he returned it. Although…they might have slept together. Don’t remember!

Harry

I agree with you, Rose. Miller’s Jason has acted like a whiny little bitch to Burton’s Jason. Watching these two in the same scene makes it clear that it was a mistake to cast Miller as Stonecold because he’s done everything to prove that he is not that guy. Meanwhile, Burton acts cooler than the other side of the pillow. I loved Monica’s scenes with both Jasons as somehow she managed to balance her loyalties and give them both unconditional love.

rebecca1

Really, Harry? “Whiny little bitch?” I’d say he’s being human. He’s living his life…he has a wife he loves, children he loves and best friends. Just decided to start a new, safer, more secure life for himself and his family…and suddenly a stranger walks in who looks exactly like he used to look claiming to be him! Now, I know this is a soap (which I like to say and point out) but, c’mon, who wouldn’t be freaked out!? Panicked? Insecure? Defensive? Dejected? Scared…etc, etc.

Harsh judgment for a man who is lost in his own mind…while he shouts that he’s the real Jason… confused, doubting his own existence and his future. I don’t care how “macho” or tough someone is supposed to be. “Macho”, “tough”…that’s fighting outside forces…the mob, his injuries…he always came through those with strength. But when your identity is threatened and you stand to lose all…when those you thought loved you and were your best friends suddenly pull away and treat you with contempt…when you’re not sure that eventually your wife will pull away, too? I’d say Billy’s “Jason” is acting quite reasonably. It’s his life that’s being threatened (and I don’t mean literally; I mean the life he lives/knows/people he loves). Imagine someone saying they’re you!

Burton’s Jason, on the other hand, has come back after five years, He sees that Sam is happy, is in love, that her “husband” treats her well and the kids love him. While he may feel sad…lost…he’s returning to a life that’s moved on without him. So, yes, he, too, is entitled to his emotions. Goes without saying. But he’s the one that’s come back…how can he express rage at Billy’s Jason when he was presumed dead, Billy’s Jason is convinced he’s him…and Sam and the children are happy. He can feel frustration, loss, sadness, despair, confusion…but not the rage that is understandably Billy’s Jason.

How could Billy’s Jason react like Steve’s. How? Who would be? Who could go on with their wife and kids…knowing that another man claiming to be him…with the face that all of Port Charles knows and loves (the face that is lost to him forever which puts him at a disadvantage)…how could he possibly not show insecurity or fear.

As to casting Billy Miller as Stone Coldcold. They didn’t. Doesn’t seem like they ever intended to. They cast him as a mas without an identity, who, even when he comes to realize he’s Jason, is changed. They’ve made it a point to show how different this Jason is, right from the beginning. He never was supposed to play “Stonecold.” . Seems like the script was always written for the “new” Jason to be more animated. Which is why almost everyone said he was “different” than they remembered.

Harry

Rebecca, I don’t take soaps as seriously as you do–I just watch for fun escapism.
Please lighten up!

rebecca1

Harry…ummmmmmm…maybe you missed the part which I almost always preface my comments with “it’s a soap…”

Seems like my different perspective put you on the defensive. Perhaps the way I wrote it made you feel so; wasn’t my intention. And, if that’s the case, my apologies. But my “you” and exclamation points weren’t to “you”…it was a general you as in “any person would feel, etc, etc…”

We all watch soaps for fun and escapism…same as read, go to theatre, see a film. Why else would we?

Breathe, Harry. “Lighten up.”

knitter1

So hoping Billy Miller is Jason!!

Soaphound

Me too, knitter1, if for no other reason than to watch Sonny & Carly eat humble pie. Monica seemed to side with Billy/Jason but of course she hadn’t spoken with Patient 6 yet. To be frank, part of me hopes that Billy Miller can get away from dreary Sam either way.

Celia

LOL.
Hey, Soaphound…..Sam poked her head out of her shell….she stepped up, tenfold. Is it temporary? She seemed human in that last scene, after Carly left.
I came to realize that this is her personality and no amount of euphoric storyline will take her out of her perennial doldrums.
Billy Miller is soooo not the Billy Miller I once “knew”…. and, I bet that if he went back to Y&R, we would not get “restitution” either. The real Billy Abbott is gone forever.
I wonder how Jason2 would fare with Nelle, let’s say…. not boring. Michael is just as ‘not there’ as Sam.
But, after watching Sam with Carly? Just this time I give her an A+. I saw the yesteryear clip of Kelly and Steve and I liked it….she was the little temptress…..what happened?
Maybe Sam’s spunk will return with Six?!

Lisa

me too !

Harry

No, I think it would be absurd to have Miller turn out to be Jason Morgan.
It would not pay fidelity to history and would be insult to injury to make Miller the real Stonecold after the first anti climatic Jason return we suffered through a few years ago.
I am a Billy Miller fan but he was dealt a bad hand with his being mis cast as Jason Morgan. Doesn’t the more bubbly, bouncy Jason deserve his own character?
Besides, he’s acting like a whiny little bitch lately and that is not the Jason Morgan we all know and love.

shelove

I agree with you.

rebecca1

Billy will be Jason Q

Steve will be Jason M

Thus, Sam’s marriage to Billy/Jason Q won’t be valid if he got married under the name Morgan. She’ll still be married to Steve’s Jason.

Deb

My guess is a big twist. Like they’re both the Jason Port Charles knows and loves. maybe Billy Miller’s Jason is the original Jason Q. Then after the accident that left Jason Q with a brain injury, maybe Helena swapped Jason Q for the twin and Jason Morgan was born. And then it happened again, with Robin discovering Jason Q in a hospital and helping him escape. Now there are two Jason’s. One for the Qs and one for the Corrinthos’. Buy who will Sam choose? Just my two cents.

AJQ
The theory of some switch 20 years ago at the time of the accident has been floating around the internet since summer, before Steve ever filmed a scene. I hope the writers are better than some fan-fiction that started spreading and getting repeated. I hope they understand the character of Jason Morgan Quartermaine and have respect for the story that some very fine writers and producers told and the fans invested in. The story of Jason Morgan is that he is Jason Quartermaine. He was injured in an accident and suffered a traumatic brain injury that caused amnesia and altered his personality. He then shunned his family who wanted him to be the person he was, who he could not remember being and he took up with the town mob boss and became his enforcer. The child of privilege, the golden boy was now a mobster who could not remember his previous life and his family and it tore them up. All the drama, conflict, emotional beats, all the character pov, motivations and actions were based on that fact, that Jason Morgan mob enforcer was their Jason Quartermaine. Change that and you ruin everything. You change everything. All the characters were wrong, playing out an orchestrated lie for decades and went to their graves having been duped. Everything we as viewers invested in was a lie. Not just for a year or two or three, but twenty. Look at the flashback they showed Friday of Monica and Jason. He tells her that raising Michael made him understand that she loved him no matter what, no matter how he changed, because she raised him. If he isn’t Jason Q, if she didn’t raise him, that scene means nothing. They are all playing out someone else’s drama. I don’t think the writers would show that clip if they didn’t understand its meaning, its importance to the story and characters and if they were going to upend it all. This would ruin the character of Jason Morgan and all that story, pov, character motivation, is all reduced to rubble. And for what? A twist? What twist? Like I said it’s been on the internet since before Steve ever stepped foot on set. All this would do is ruin the character and the story. And now SB Jason Morgan would no longer be the child raised and loved by the Q’s but the twin taken by Heather, given to Betsy and raised with the filth that is Franco. And for what? So Billy Miller can be the golden boy who returns? Returns to who? The Q’s are all dead. Why does Billy Miller need to be propped up by something Steve Burton built, whether it’s Jason Morgan or Jason Quartermaine? Let him try and make it on his own on GH. He seems capable. Also, we already have an unknown twin and a story that needs to be told about how he got to the clinic and had memories transferred. In addition to that… Read more »
Harry

I could not agree more, AJQ.
Thank you for saying it for me and so well too.

Deb

I love what you wrote, AJQ, and totally agreee that would be the way to go, but this is a soap opera and the writers often go with crazy and very implausible scenarios, and we continue to watch. Sometimes when I look at Nina and reminded where she started on the show, and yet now she’s running a magazine. Would this happen in real life in such a short period of time? No. But there it is. And TBTB hope we have short memories. I do hope they go the way you suggested, maintaining the integrity of the character. Regardless, I am enjoying SB being back. He is and always will be Jason Q and M to me, no matter where this goes.

Harry

Right, Deb. And now Lulu is going to be an investigative journalist despite the fact that she has no college education and doesn’t strike me as being terribly bright,

FriscoBrad

To me, I would think the more interesting story is for SB to be Jason, BM is Drew, and the real drama lies with Sam – classic love triangle. Does Sam still love Jason – who is still the “old” Jason with whom she has a child…or does Sam love Drew – with whom she also has a child and who is providing her the type of life she wants NOW?
I have no preference as to the result, but I think it would be interesting if she picked Drew (BM) since everyone thinks she would pick Jason (SB).

rebecca1

Agree, Deb. Wrote the same thing on another page.

shelove

the real Jason Morgan I hope.

Mars

Helena deleted the PCPD database file on Jason Morgan and according to Jordan the records were deleted from the police station not the hospital. Why doesn’t any one ask why did she delete the fingerprints. She didn’t want anyone to even think that the John Doe that was admitted was actually Jason Morgan. She is the perfect villian and it would be dumb if she lied to Jason when she told him he was indeed Jason and that Sam was his wife and Danny was his son. She did that because it was just more cruel for him to know that he has been talking to his wife and son but had no idea. It was just like her to torture him by saying she is his boss and he will forget everything as part of his conditioning. If one simply asks why did Helena delete his fingerprints then you could easily find out who is Jason.

shelove

Agree.

Yvonne

Billy Miller is Jason Quartermaine, the original one before the car accident in 1996. Then Helena switched him out and replaced him with a brain damaged, brain washed Drew/ Steve Burton, who didn’t know who he was when he woke up and was told he was Jason… he became the Stone Cold Jason Morgan for 20 years (maybe he was brain damaged and angry because of the fall down the stairs when he was 3, bad news for Franco who’ll lose Liz) When Stone Cold/Steve Burton got stabbed and thrown in the water Helena kidnapped him and put him into Dr. Klein’s clinic. She also then rekidnapped the real Jason Q/Billy Miller and brainwashed him to believe he was Jason Morgan. Jason Q only has the brain washed Stone Cold memories inserted by Helena and also can’t remember anything else. Jason Q was a good guy he so I bet he turns out to be Oscar’s missing father and doesn’t remember….enter Tamara Braun who will think it’s then other guy. So to summarize Jason Quartermaine is Billy Miller and Jason Morgan/Stone Cold/original Drew is Steve Burton. So one of these guys gets Sam, the other gets Liz and Franco winds up back with Nina because we can already see Nina is going to wind up leaving Valentine. That’s my theory with a lot of unraveling to come!

Soaphound

I love your logical thinking, Yvonne. Well Done! My only quibble is I’d like Billy to be Jason but at the same time be able to dump that depressing, hard to understand Sam. And I’d love Dr. Klein to stick around. He’s hot. And I loathe Valentin, so I hope Nina wises up quick.

Yvonne

Yup, Sam has always been a snore to me. Thanks actress just doesn’t have much chemistry with anyone except Michael Easton, and I think that really came from him. I agree Dr Klein’s a hotty and Valentine is not.

Alan

No suspense here — Steve Burton will be the real Jason and things will go back to the monotonous mob centric mess they were before Frank and Ron took over the show.

And Jason probably won’t even blink when he learns that Sonny killed his brother AJ (if that is is even brought up at all…)

nancy dillingham

Agreed–“no suspense here.”

Jimh

Neither one is the real Jason…both men are really Franco’s brothers-triplets named Larry, Curly and Moe-lol

Timmm

Sonny is Shemp!

Celia

Well, I said they were triplets, Jimmy….jokingly, of course, as you just did.
Imagine if it turns out to be true? Wouldn’t that be the twist of twists?

dan

My theory: Jason Quartermaine was kidnapped after the car accident with AJ and replaced with identical twin Drew Quartermaine. He then became Jason Morgan, “died” at the pier and resurfaced as Patient 6 five years later. So Jason Morgan as played by Steve Burton has really been Drew Q since the accident.

The original Jason Quartermaine went to God knows where after the accident, was hit by Ava and became known as Jake Doe before assuming the identity of Jason Morgan.

Now there is a ton of new back story to explain all of this, but that’s my theory!

Steve

I doubt the show will go there, but a plausible culprit in the abduction of Jason Quartermaine would be Julian. Reasoning:

Julian had lingering animosity toward Alan for his role in covering up Julian’s father’s death (catch the hilarious death scenes with Victor and Lucy on YouTube). While in the Witness Protection Program, Julian arranged for the switch (never knowing he had a daughter that would one day be involved with Jason).

As they seem intent on redeeming Julian, they won’t go there. Conversely, the plot could work with Olivia Jerome (and explain her involvement with Valentin at the same time).

Celia

Wow!!! I had no clue of all this, Steve. Thanks….better perspective, now.

Steve

@Celia
To be clear, the Witness Protection Program part is my speculation. The part about Alan covering up Victor’s death was part of the lead up to the short-lived marriage of Alan and Lucy.

Shay

Makes perfect sense, Steve, and I believe you are undoubtedly most correct about the Julian retro aspect, since it’s already obvious that the showrunners are primed and ready to polish his halo ala Sonny in order to facilitate his ongoing sexcapades with Alexis…

Grant Putnam

All these theories retconning to the accident in ’96 are ridiculous. No one cares about changing the Jason Quatermaine/Morgan story to fit this one. The one wrinkle they didn’t account for in one day bringing back Steve was Robin breaking out the mute Jason from the CC clinic. Robin’s return may help provide an explanation as implausible as it will turn out to sound. Initially, Steve will be Drew to build the Tamara (Kim) character which at some point will change to Billy being Drew. Since the Tamara-Steve chemistry is known and the Billy-Kelly chemistry is similarly established, this is a quick win for the writers which will later be corrected to the obvious: Billy’s Jason memories were always played back as hazy and Steve’s are crystal clear. If Billy was really Jason, why can’t he have flashbacks with his old face. The truth is looking right at us through the blue eyes of the actors.

rebecca1

@Grant…Because Steve Burton wasn’t available to do Billy’s flashbacks? LOL…

Timmm

Excellent point!

rebecca1

I agree Dan. Billy/Jason Q. Steve/Jason M. in the time frame you give.

Timmm

I just cannot believe this is GH, retro! [The good old days!] The Patient Six story has been excellent. Burton has been wonderful. The story has been written well and they have moved this along at a decent pace. Burton will be Jason and Miller will be Drew. Jason will go back to Sam and Drew will hook up with Tamara’s new character and she will hate Carly and we will have TWO Carly’s at each others throat. This is a good thing since both actresses can bring it!

Fanny

@Timmm, I like your version the best.

Jimh

But Patient6 and Tamara Brauns new character could be Oliver’s parents…

rebecca1

I think Billy is the real Jason Quartermaine…was switched after the car accident he had with AJ… and Steve Burton became Jason Morgan.

Thus…Billy is Jason Quartermaine…but went missing for 20 years and lived another life until he was reprogrammed to think he’s lived Jason Morgan’s life and…

Steve Burton is the Jason Morgan we’ve known…from mob life til “shot dead” by Faison…returning now.

All orchestrated by Helena, Faison…but now I’m starting to wonder if Wes…Laura Wright’s real-life boyfriend…(don’t remember his name) who’s interviewing for the spot at Aurora…is somehow connected.

Celia

I L-O-V-E it, Timmmy!!!!! How clever are you????

Shay

Our Timmmy is too clever by half, CeeCeeGirl!!! I like his scenario, too, save for the fact it features ex-Carly in the equation….I’m really not looking forward to this shrieking she-me resurfacing in Port Charles even if it is under a newly-assumed identity. (As if one Carly at a time were not enough….) I’m also not thrilled by the prospect of our darling BM being linked with her character…..better Liz and he get reacquainted since her dalliance with Franco has always been at best downright distasteful.

Celia

You paint a perfect picture, Shaybelle. That short time, Lizzie and Jake had, was idyllic. They had everything going for them …. intimacy….sweet and passionate, at the same time.
They just worked so well together. Jake was more fun, ingratiating without being unctuous…more Billy Abbott-like.
Then, there was Sam. I know you admire Kelly as an actress, and I do admit, that lately I have seen so much hidden talent which had been tucked away somewhere…..but, she does not connect with her counterparts, Shay. One sees glimpses, not a steady flow of undeniable talent, as Maura, for one. It is natural to compare, Shay….it’s show biz.
Billy Miller lost most of his charming self as Jason2 opposite Kelly/Sam.
I think he would regain that devil-may-care euphoria, which I loved so much with Liz ……she can give him that.
Franco? Love Roger/Todd…..Franco?…..can’t think of a word….morose? An enigma in a negative way?
A little mystery becomes everyone–Franco is just strange…
LOL…are you telling me Tamara is a worse Carly—did she stomp, too? Did she ambulate like a bat out of hell?

AJ

I think Jason Quartermaine (as played by Steve Burton) was kidnapped from the hospital when he was in the car with drunk AJ and was replaced by his twin Drew (as still played by Steve Burton) by the Cassadines. 20 years later, kidnapped Jason Q escaped and was hit by the car driven by Ava and had surgery and woke up with Billy Miller’s face. So I say Drew is Jason Morgan played by Steve Burton and Jason is Jason Quartermaine played by Billy Miller. This would help explain how Robin saw the original Jason’s face – that was always a story issue when Robin was kidnapped during her “dead” time.

Satan

Jason had a piece of AJ’s dashboard surgically removed from his brain in 2012. Robin supposedly blew herself up in the lab while trying to make a chemical protocol to help him. None of that would have been possible if they had swapped Drew in after the accident. There’s only one Jason. Now there’s also a Drew, as crazy as the whole idea is, but they had to come up with some way to keep Billy Miller employed. And Drew has no prior connections to Port Charles other than Frodd. And most likely his son Oscar and his mommy Kim. Who of course weren’t living in PC until recently. It’s a win win for everybody. Jason gets his life back. Drew gets a great story line filling in all the holes between the time Frodd pushed him down the stairs and the time Robin thawed him out at Crichton-Clark. Seems we can place him in San Diego in 2003, but that’s about all we know. Given the year and San Diego being a big Navy town, I’m going to guess his next stop after that was probably Iraq or somewhere else in that general vicinity.

AJ

Your memory is better than mine 🙂

Steve

The switch could have occurred just prior to the accident so that Drew would have the dashboard piece in his brain.

Chrystie_Delancey

Whomever Steve Burton will ultimately portray is overshadowed by the fact that Steve Burton has his OWN opening card in the intro — he is hulking over everyone else that shares a card.

So whomever he is, he will be a more prominent character than whomever Billy Miller will ultimately play, thus being the more important character and in your face with Laura Wright and Maurice Benard — that’s a fact, Jack! That part will NOT change. Mark my words. 🙂

Steve

Steve Burton must be the new Tony Geary. It seemed obnoxious that Geary also had the last card to himself, when he should have shared with Jane Elliott.

They’ve updated some of the photos. Hayden, Dillon and Andre are removed. Somehow, despite being bumped to recurring over a year ago, Olivia remains on the card with Alexis and Julian.

AJ

That did shock me – him having his own card. Considering some cards have 4 and he’s alone? I thought 2 was special. I’m guessing he’ll move to a shared card during the next go round – when his romantic pairing is determined. I’m hoping with Liz after she dumps Franco for his lies.

Celia

You mean more Carly? More Sonny? Oh, Chrystie…..I wish it weren’t so!!!!. But, I’m afraid you’re right.
I don’t mind Carly when separate from Sonny….as I don’t mind Alexis without Julian; the most irreverent, upside-down, offensive characters on GH. But, it seems these people control PC and what transpires in it.

rebecca1

I agree with you, AJ. Have been posting this several times. I think that would make the most sense; it would also mean that Monica raised Billy (Drew) but also had a long relationship with Burton’s Morgan. Makes sense she would love both of them. Tehnically, she’s not the biological mother of either one so if she does love both…it would seem it’s just instinct…unless she literally “mothered” them both at some point.

rebecca1

Oops! I meant Billy (Jason Quartermaine)

dmr

I don’t want the twins to be enemies. I want them to find their way as brothers. AJ and Jason’s relationship was decimated due to the accident and then Jason’s ties with Sonny, who he considers as a brother. This storyline is compelling and has promise; however, the only component that ruins it for me is Sam. The monotone and neediness of the character ruins each and every scene-IMO. TPTB and other characters pretend that Sam is so strong. I have always thought she was a weak link.

Soaphound

I want that, too, dmr. But if there’s gonna be infighting, it’ll be Sam and Sonny as the instigators/culprits. Sonny loves to isolate people and create faux enemies. I’m sure he’ll fuel the dissension.

Shay

He’ll have to since that will be the only way to make this “Tale of the Two Jasons” all about Sonny!….God forbid he is not the star of this storyline…or any other GH one, for that matter!

Satan

Steve Burton is Jason Morgan who was also Jason Quartermaine for the first 18 years of his life.

Of course they’re going to drag this out for two reasons:

1) Frank Valentini just can’t stop propping that ridiculous Frankenstein’s monster of a lame character called Frodd “Baldwin”, so they have to manipulate the story to keep him in the middle of it. And with Frodd burning the document that Maddox gave him, he supposedly becomes the only person in all of Port Chuckles who knows the truth. Yeah right….

2) Tamara Braun’s new character has to be shocked when she meets Jason, believing that he’s her long lost love & Oscar’s daddy…. who is actually Drew. And since we know that TB’s first appearance is going to be on Wednesday 11/22, odds are it’s going to be at Sonny & Carly’s place, when she accepts Carly’s invitation to Turkey dinner. Jason will also be there because (sadly) Monica still sides with Drew.

Drew himself will be eating pizza at the Q mansion so he won’t have any memories triggered right away by meeting Kim (or whatever TB’s name is)

James R. Poissant

I don’t want to see Billy Miller be diminished in air time but at the same time, I see Steve Burton and immediately I’m thinking he’s Jason because that was his role for 21 years. I swore I would fall into this but afraid I’m not holding up to what I thought at first.

jacque

Unfortunately SB will be revealed to be Drew even though his character has played “Jason” as we remember him.

MisterK

I’m hoping that Steve Burton is the real Jason. But with that, I was also hoping that Robert Scorpio would return along with Luke…. and that Kate Upton would call me for a date. But, I know I’m dreaming on all accounts. Have a great day everyone! LOVING GH right now. Best show on TV.

Shay

Mrs. Verlander sends her regrets, Mister K.!!!! She’s all booked up for the foreseeable future…..

MisterK

Ahhhh, the truth hurts Shay. =) Mr. Verlander is a lucky man. Have a great day!

Shay

Awww…you too, Mister K! Perhaps at least there is a glimmer of hope we shall one day see Robert Scorpio resurface in Port Charles…Fingers crossed!

dmr

I had to laugh the other day, during the scene with Carly and Michael-Carly telling Michael to talk to Jason (6) about his feelings/problems with Nelle. You’ve got to be kidding me? Does the guy even have a place to stay in Port Charles? He just got back to town after years of being held captive, finds out that another man is married to his wife, raising his child, oh, and living his life! But, let’s put that all aside so that Jason can take on Carly’s worries, and comfort Michael! The writers are just sometimes so stupid. This is what makes me dislike the character (Carly) so much. I find her highly irritating.

Boop

I find Carly irritating , also.

Shay

Is there anyone who doesn’t???? Seriously…..

rebecca1

ditto to you dmr and Boop! (LOL; love that name!)

Iakovos

I am all for a strong compelling story, one that impacts everyone. This has been missing from GH for a long time. That said, it is just the character histories here are so decimated and the suspension of belief so much to ask. And the people are so flawed.

-I like some humor but even DAYS Will never-died story is sad to me even though it brings back Chandler Massey.

This story, however, remains watchable. I wish Y&R’s human trafficking tale had such suspense and engagement across all plot lines. It could have. And it had potential to shed bright light on a genuine social concern.

Jacob

I am pleasantly surprised how into the Jacons storyine I am. It’s moving quickly – it makes use of history and doesn’t seem to be stretching established history to fit a retcon (meaning: for this to be successful, they don’t have to necessarily trash too much at least that I can tell as a long time fan).

The theory above that BillyMillerJason is OriginalRecipeJason spirited away from the hospital after the accident and replaced with SteveBurtonJason who seemed like a completely different person (because it seems that he was!) and would also explain why he felt he had no connection to the Quartermaines. Yes, I know this is all retcon but it does track well enough to pass for me. I think it would be brilliant. Everyone is happy. Stone Cold keeps his life and BillyMiller becomes Monica’s son. I really hope that if this is how it’s played out, that they find some way for OriginalJason to lament the loss of AJ not once but twice (and by Sonny’s hand). It seems to me that the powers that be on GH hate the character of AJ and Sean Kanan, but hoping that they do right by that part of the history.

All this and Nora Buchanan as well!

Boop

It seems as if they hate AJ for sure. I stopped watching G.H. when Sonny was more powerful than the Quartermaines. These writers are allowing Carly and Sonny to bulldoze over everyone ; including the police commissioner. However, I believe that Billy Miller’s character isn’t going to allow them to steam roll him.

Shay

@Boop….Jordan has to be the most ineffectual and unconvincing PCPD commish ever…even on Mac’s worst day, he was never that bad!!! Time to get the Divine Devane back into the office where she belongs!

Chrystie-Delancey

Dum da dum dum!

Oh come on! NO fingerprints? I call BS! Surely Monica kept some of “Jason’s” art work as a child which would have finger prints. Surely there are dental records.

Just convenient story telling.

Patricia Cooper

I think steve burton will turn out to be drew

Becky

It seems so obvious that SB is the real Jason, so it doesn’t seem like that will turn out to be the case – too easy. It will probably go back and forth. I like some of the earlier answers that BM is the real Jason and Helena swapped the twins after the accident 20 whatever years ago. Makes as much sense as anything. I’m enjoying the story (except for the sci-fi aspect of transplanting memories). Not interested in any other story right now.

k/kay

Ok if you think Steve Burton came back to play a retcon character then I have some swamp land to sell you real cheap! That’s fine he and MB have same agent they run the show over there so all these theories are a waste of time . My only question is RC getting a residual check since this is his story from OTTL????

rocky83

There is NO disappointing
outcome, GH is on FIRE !!!

Celia

Who is the real Jason????
I am not well-versed enough to make a rational choice—-so, I will not even attempt to give my two-cents worth.
Nevertheless, I must emphasize that the scene between Carly and Sam gave some very compelling tell-tale signs as to the real Jason’s identity. It was one of the most loaded, most instrumental scenes I have ever been privy to between this twosome….or from Sam, period!!
…”Andrew will fight for you; Jason will let you go….back off, and wait….”, said Carly ( paraphrasing).
Is this how THE Jason operated? His modus operandi?
That simple line from Carly was exquisite….spoke volumes. Absolutely ingenious….bravi writers.
Perhaps it is wishful thinking on my part?…..sometimes the power of suggestion can be overwhelming.
The turn the conversation took floored me……the writing was sooo, very remarkable…
….Sam was amazing—-coming from moi, it says more than I am willing to grudgingly admit, LOL.
Carly’s words, certainly, gave her pause. Food for thought? I feel as if I am analyzing a chapter ( essay) in “Humanities” class. LOL.
But, I could not ignore the somber, forlorn…. almost solemn look on Sam’s face, as she sat on the stairway, looking so small…..helpless and vulnerable. I could read the emotions fighting with themselves in her eyes,….
Woah….the fragile little-wounded-bird-like picture got to me. Hmmmm.
Good show, y’all.

Debra m

Agree. That was an amazing scene. As annoying as Carly can be she spoke the truth. Great writing, what is going on? My heart went out to Sam. As you said, she looked so small and vulnerable. Kelly has been great through out this whole story. Her and Steve say so much, just with their eyes.

Fanny

@CeeCee, Hi sweetness…
Original Jason (SB) will undoubtably let Sam choose for herself.
That has always been his standard way of operating w/ those he
loves…And when it comes to Sam he’s all in heart, body, & soul.
But the choice will be hers alone to make, he won’t push, prod, or
insinuate himself back into a life he feels he is no longer a part of.
Carly knowing him to be selfless as only OJ can be…felt it was her
duty as his BFF to give Sam a reality shake-up….We R all aware
Sam knows the truth…yet hearing it out loud makes it all very real.
And you’re right CeeCee, torn between two brothers-lovers poor
Sam…How do you follow your heart when it’s divided ???
Kelly has shown us her acting chops, brava indeed !

Celia

Hey, Fanny,
Yes, I’m beggining to see the altruistic nature in Six. So, it seems the consensus is that Patient Six IS the real Jason? I suppose, his mannerisms, behaviors and way of thinking are evident to Carly, Sonny and Diane. They see in him what others cannot. It’s always about the eyes….not the color, but the soul shining through…. always, the soul….
Regardless of facial reconstructed changes….the story the eyes convey does not change.
There is still the posdibility that the real Jason was switched at birth, or at the scene of either accidents. So, even if Steve/Jason turns out to be the Jason who grew up amongst the citizens of PC and the Q’s, he may still be that Drew (Billy/Jason), who was given away, is the actual Jason Q. Am I making any sense? LOL.
Regardless of who is whom, their memories were toyed with. Irreparably? Soooo intersting to find out….love this story, mon amie…..!!
Sam is, definitely, caught in the middle, I’d say.
The heart is devided, my lady……but, in the end, the heart will become whole and it will be that heart which will guide her.
Personally, I think that in the depths of that heart, Sam already knows who HER Jason is.

Shay

Honestly, CeeCee? I’m not sure I really care which twin is ultimately which….the mere fact that at long last GH has a storyline upon which it is actually worth investing is enough for me. At the moment, it certainly seems that Burton’s character is the real Jason Morgan, but that’s almost been too easy to surmise up until this point, hence I am hoping for a dramatic and unexpected twist—or two—in true soap opera fashion! But having said that, as far as I’m concerned, this is a win-win situation either way the identities pan out because we have Steve and Billy Miller gracing the canvas as “The Q a Deux” and I am enjoying them both! Additionally, as you have observed, this tale is bringing out the best in many other characters, too. I’m so glad that you have finally recognized that Kelly has more than simply the somnambulantly somber Sam in her acting repertoire…Just you wait, she can also be steely, sage, spontaneous and sensual, as well! (Unlike her hopeless mother, Alexis….who yesterday sat there like a complete one-note fool whilst the ever-wise Diane once again tried to talk some sense into her Julian obsessed head. I do love the dynamic and assertive Attorney Miller…she is the anti-Alexis!) And as I noted previously on this thread, Monica has been an absolute delight to behold, too. Leslie Charleson has really delivered during her return into the Port Charles spotlight! Lastly, Laura Wright’s Carly is at her optimum whenever she is sans Sonny….she plays off a large variety of other characters in a very effective manner, much more so than when she is trapped within the boundaries of Casa Corinthos!

Timmm

I agree with you Shay, either way its a win win with Steve and Billy. I have complained in the past about Billy Miller but he is doing a good job of being a dick right now! Him and Steve will butt heads as brothers until one day they will need each other. Alexis, I FF through her whining! Hey Shay, I was thinking of two missed opportunities that ABC missed. ONE: The executive that Drew interviewed for Aurora, it should have been Michael Muhney! TWO: The great Ric Hearst should have been brought back as Sonny’s mortal enemy that is in charge of the whole Jason switcheroo!

Boop

I like Alexis and Julian together ; also, Diane dates a mobster ; Sam is married to one; therefore, neither would be able to tell me anything. Let them clean up their own houses before trying to help Alexis clean hers. The Soap boss would fire me the first day because I wouldn’t listen to Carly , Diane, Sonny, Lulu, Dante, etc.; get the point ?

rebecca1

Boop…agree with EVERY sentiment you just expressed!

Chrystie-Delancey

I have watched GH off and on through my teen years, but started during the Sonny and Brenda years.

My question is this, when did Helena have it in for the Quartermains? I know she absolutely HATED the Spencers, but I don’t remember much hatred for the Quartermains during that time and wonder what the end game would be by replacing a twin.

Can someone elaborate?

Satan

The Quartermaines were involved in the original Cassadine story, back when Mikkos had his “freeze the world in the middle of August” thing going on. There were some business dealings between Edward & Mikkos back in the day, and Edward’s niece Alexandra was involved with Mikkos’ brother Tony (both of whom ended up frozen, along with Mikkos himself). So while Helena hated Luke & Laura most of all, she probably also blamed the Q’s for being part of the whole thing which (in her mind) drove her beloved Mikkos over the edge.

joyce mauceri

try burton nutrition great product good luck steve with your new launch joyce mauceri s..i.. delicious and good nutrients

aria

First poor Billy Millers” jason gets the thrown to the curb by sonny and carly faster then you can say we’re best friends and brother but to top it off, in what i thought was funny yet cold, diane miller dump him as jason too, boy was she cold, diane doesn’t mess around, i have to admit, i got a little guilty pleasure out of it…

Deb S

Let’s not forget Elizabeth…wonder if she dumps Franco and goes back to SB Jason? Sam can stay with who I hope is “Drew” and Liz and Jason reunite…that would be a great twist!

Yvonne

Can’t stand the way Sonny and Carly have thrown Billy Miller’s Jason under the bus because they so want their slave Jason back … the one that gives up his life, wife and children and puts them first. They can’t possibly fathom that Billy Miller’s Jason is the one they knew because he decided to put his family first. Could Billy Miller be the Jason they knew and after his accident and facial reconstruction and living with Elizabeth before he knew his identify, made him have some realizations about living his own life and putting his family first. And even with that being said, he has more than once put his life on the line for Sonny. Is this going to be the Sonny/Carly/Jason show and Billy Miller gets the raw end. If so I’m done..too many years of that b.s… And Billy is more talented then all three.

Satan

Anybody who thinks Billy Miller is getting “thrown under the bus” here, you might want to look into the “Two Romans” story from Days of our Lives…

The second “Roman” who turned out not to even be Roman at all… not even a blood relative (unlike Drew or Todd’s twin on OLTL). Yeah, he lost the life which was never his to begin with. But he found one. Hell, in the end, he even got “the girl”… which was significant because Roman & Marlena were probably the #2 soap supercouple of the early 80s (we all know who #1 was)

Billy Miller can create a new character that forges a similar path for himself, and lets go of his brother’s life. He might even end up with Sam. That’s really the only thing in this story that I’m NOT sure of… where she will end up.

And on the other horn, we all know Billy signs his contracts one year at a time, films a lot of pilots, and was recently in a recurring role on Ray Donovan. Or in other words, he’s not 666% committed to GH, and there’s nothing wrong with that, for him as an actor. But Jason Morgan really needs to be in Port Charles. So if Billy would really rather move on, should the opportunity present itself, then there’s no point in dragging Jason down with him.

rebecca1

There’s no reason to believe that there’s not two Jasons…Jason Q and Jason M (one being Drew) who became Jason M.

I agree with what Yvonne said; not in terms of Billy Miller the actor, but in terms of Sonny and Carly’s treatment of Billy’s character after Burton’s Jason came back. But then again it just reinforced why I can’t stand Sonny and Carly. And speaking of the nauseating duo…why won’t someone throw AJ up in their faces!!!! Each time they blame Ava for what she did to Morgan…where’s Monica!!!!??? Why doesn’t she or Steve Burton’s Jason say…”whoa!!!!!!!!!!!!! What Ava did to Morgan isn’t half as bad as hanging AJ from a meat hook, stealing his son, threatening him constantly, taunting him, dousing him with alcohol and making him think he was drinking again…and then KILLING him. Literally.

But I digress…

Satan: I agree Billy’s made some appearances on other shows and as a lot of actors probably auditions for more. In the same vein, Burton left the role for five years. So, I think any actor is committed to any show so long as the work is interesting and the paycheck is good. They all get enough time off now to still take gigs on the side. But his role on Ray Donovan was a big nothing. I think he had ten lines cumulatively. And, I haven’t heard him say he’d “rather move on.” I think people are assuming a lot. If there are now Quartermaine twins there should be room for both; good stories for both, as you indicated, too. It’s not a competition for GH between the two actors, rather a competition of the characters. People don’t need to take sides.

Satan

Well, I certainly hope that after Robin’s appearance, all of this disinformation, fan fiction, and dragonshit theories can cease and desist already.

The person who truly knew Jason Morgan (post-accident) before anybody else did…. she knows the REAL Jason when she sees him. And Jason’s memories are very detailed, while Drew’s are just the generalities of events…. because whatever process Maddox (or Klein or whomever) used to copy & paste Jason’s memories into his brother’s head, they couldn’t copy & paste the emotional details that go with them. As Jason himself said, Drew may well “see” the memories, but he doesn’t “feel” them. Because he wasn’t there…..

Of course Robin is also the one who brought Drew back from popsicle land, so hopefully Drew won’t get pissy with her like he has with Sonny, Carly, and everybody else who knows the truth. Perhaps Robin learned some things during her time at Crichton Clark or at Cassadine Island that might help Drew uncover his own actual past.

Steve

Steve Burton is almost certainly playing Jason Morgan (1995-2012). The question many have is whether Billy Miller could possibly be Jason Quartermaine (1995 and before). It’s a long shot, but there’s got to be to this storyline.

Satan

That storyline would be complete crap, and an insult to the last 22 years of GH history. Jason Quartermaine got in a car, believing he could get his drunken idiot brother AJ home safely. Tragic miscalculation on his part, as AJ did what drunk drivers do, and Jason paid the price for it.

There was no switching, no swapping, no unknown twin anywhere near Port Charles. Jason Quartermaine is Jason Morgan. I know there are some pathological Jason haters out there who are desperate to do ANYTHING to ruin Jason’s return, but they should be careful of what they wish for.

Look at where the ratings are the last few weeks. Now imagine where they would be if they destroy every shred of GH history going back to December 1995, just to prop Frodd and a recast actor who will bail the minute one of his pilots is picked up for a prime time series.

Valentini has made several dumb moves since February 2012, but even he knows that would be the coffin lid slammed shut on General Hospital.

Keep the ratings up by keeping the real Jason as Jason and solving the two big mysteries…. 1) Who was holding Jason prisoner in Russia? and 2) Where was Drew between the time Frodd threw him down the stairs, and the day Robin found him as a popsicle at Crichton Clark? That keeps people interested. Furthermore, if Billy wants to go film some pilots, it provides a credible cover to have him off camera for a few weeks…. just say Drew is off following a lead somewhere out of the country (seems likely at this point that he left the US on a Navy ship in 2003, and might not have returned until the Cassadines shipped him back in frozen storage)

Some days I really think I should be writing this damned show. Head writer: Satan! Wouldn’t THAT bring in the ratings???

Sue M.

Patient 6 is the real Jason!!! Steve Burton!!!

Donna

I’m hoping that Billy Miller is Jason! And I think he might be! But at any rate, I’m definitely loving all of these twists and turns that are taking place in Port Charles right now! Lots of turbulence creates a whole lot of excitement and mystique! Keep up the excellent work GH! 😀

Gloria E

I could never stand Steve Burton….. I was so happy when Billy Miller started playing him cuz he gave him like a human aspect…. Steve Burton portrayal is stiff and uncaring and has always made my skin crawl…. I just can’t stand the way Sonny and Carly treat Billy Miller’s Jason as opposed to Steve Burton’s Jason….. with friends like that who needs enemies…..JMO…

General Hospital

GH’s Laura Wright and Wes Ramsey Talk Their Love Connection & The Demands Of Daytime

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

After presenting for the first time together, at the 45th Annual Daytime Emmys since they’ve been a couple, Laura Wright (Carly) and Wes Ramsey (Peter aka Henrik) of General Hospital have certainly been in the throes of a romantic, fun, and cherished relationship. The two former stars of Guiding Light reconnected last year at Emmy time. Now, sharing their over one year anniversary, Michael Fairman TV caught up with Laura and Wes to get some insight into what makes their relationship work amidst the hustle and bustle, and pace of both being on a network television daytime drama series, and with the pressures of Hollywood where often relationships between two actors seem to start hot and heavy but then fizzle out.

If you caught this week’s GH, you witnessed that the town of Port Charles has found out that Peter is the notorious Cesar Faison’s son, and the ramifications that will be felt for weeks and months and potentially years to come. Meanwhile, Carly is in all sorts of trouble, thanks to naughty Nelle (Chloe Lanier). Nelle is making Carly look awfully unstable and what happens next could change Carly’s life forever.

So, what do these two lovebirds have to say about their relationship and their passion for working on the soaps? Check out what they had to share below. 

Wes, you had met Laura originally years ago on Guiding Light.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Wes: Yes, 15 years ago in New York.

And what did you think of her then?

Wes: Well, I was smitten, but I had to keep it to myself.

You had to keep it under wraps, huh?

Wes: Yep!

Laura: I was married then.

Wes: She was pregnant with her second child.

Laura: And he’s a good Kentucky boy.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Wes: Uh-huh! But we would run lines in the green room and I would try very hard to make sure she didn’t catch me staring at her… too often. But we laughed, and had great conversation.

Laura: I would always say, “Wes, will you run lines with me?,” because I would want to run my lines.

Wes: We never had story together, but she always knew I was game to hang out with her for a moment.

It’s good when you’re in a relationship with someone and you can laugh with them. You seem to be able to do that a lot!

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Laura: Oh, gosh. I think that’s all we do.

Wes: Yes, yes, yes, yes…

Laura: Like, we belly laugh. It gets to the point where people would think we were ridiculous. We’ll say things and just think it’s the funniest thing ever and people would be like, “You guys have a problem …” and we’re like, “Yeah.” (Laughs)

Laura, and then he comes back into your life years later…

Wes: That’s right, it was Emmy weekend 2017.

Laura: I totally was not expecting it at all. Even when I gave him my number I walked away going “huh…”

You mean you thought he wouldn’t call?

Laura: No, I didn’t feel that… because he hit on me hard. He’ll tell you that.

Wes: I still am hitting on her.

Laura: I remember I walked away quick after he got my number. I was like, “Oh, my God … I gotta go.”

Wes: There was an assertiveness on my part that was for sure 15 years in the making. I did not expect to run into her. I also did not expect for her to tell me that she was recently single. In that split second, it was one of those, “stop the presses!” moments. Like, you need to give me your number, I’m taking you to dinner.

Laura: I go, “Oh, be quiet! Are you like, 32, because I can’t do that.” (Laughs)

Wes: And I said, “Far from it.”

Laura: He’s like, “I’m getting ready to be 40.” And I’m like, “I can do that!”

Then, on top of all of this, Wes, you land a primo role on General Hospital. That of Henrik aka Peter, Cesar Faison’s son.

Wes: Yes, a dream come true.

Laura: I’m going to jump in and say it’s a role that he worked all on his own for. He had to screen test against 8 plus guys, 3 different auditions, 2 different days.

Wes: That’s true.

Laura: I can’t say strong enough that the best actor got the role. Meaning, Wesley is so talented and has the ability to give this character the depth, and emotion, and layers that it needs to tell the story that needs to be told. I just think he’s incredible.

So, did you know from the get-go who you were going to be playing?

Wes: I did not.

Laura: I did! (Laughs)

Wes: I’m thrilled that the writers have been giving me such incredible material to dive into.   Each month that goes by, it becomes more and more complex, and more and more layered and intense. I love the depth… I love the conflicts… I love the humanity… I love the desperation… I love the psychology behind it. It’s a very interesting story and a great journey to tell.

Laura: I was getting ready to say, where you mentally have to go to be the son of Faison and Anna Devane (Finola Hughes)! To blend that together is amazing. It’s incredible to watch.

You used to run lines together on Guiding Light. Do you run lines together now on GH? It’s like a full circle moment.

Laura: We do, and we carpool.

Wes: Something we were trying to manifest together. We thought it would be a lot of fun to work together one day.

Laura: The last week we worked, we didn’t. He worked all afternoon. I worked all morning. I was like, “Are they doing this on purpose?” I was so mad! I was like, “Why are you in the afternoon everyday?” (Laughs)

Wes: She lost her chauffeur. (Laughs)

Laura: I did! He always drives us to work. I also love when we both have afternoon calls, because we love having mornings together. So, I didn’t get my morning, nor did I have my chauffeur!

So, two actors can have a good relationship? You see so many Hollywood relationships with actors and they go bust. But that’s not always the case …

Wes: Oh, my God, yes.

Laura: I’m going to say this; I think I can see it being more difficult for daytime

actors, because the work we do is so intense. I know the weeks he’s getting ready to go into, and I’m getting ready to go into. Where we go emotionally and psychologically to tell these stories, on the level that we tell them, as quick as we tell them, you kind of have to become really in a headspace. The fact that we can …

Wes: … the long hours …

Laura: Yes, and exhaustion! You really have to go, “Wow! It’s not about me right now. It’s about us individually as actors.” Thank God, we know the workload. I know what he’s getting ready to go through.

Wes: I have always had so much respect for Laura’s work. On Guiding Light, I’ve always been in awe of what she’s capable of doing. So, the level of respect is obviously there. But also, the understanding whatever it is that you need from a personal assistant in one moment… or a life partner in another moment … or a best friend in moment … or whatever it is in order to get through the day-to-day and the week-to-week, so we can do what we love to do. We know we’re very lucky to have the opportunity to do what we love.

Laura was such a great co-host on my Soap Nation Live! Daytime Emmy Nomination Specials, in particular when she talks about acting. It’s so rewarding to hear the other actors who are guests on the show listening to what Laura has to say about her craft and respecting the hell out of her.

Wes: Without a doubt. You can’t watch her work and not be in awe. It speaks for itself.

Laura: I just love the journey of going to the places that we go; to bleed for it.

Wes: Leave it all out on the floor.

Laura: I know that process. So, when I see another actor that’s bleeding, I just bow to them, because I know what it takes to go there. I know the work that Wesley does. When I see that he’s spent at the end of the day, I’m like, “Babe, I so get it.” So, I can see where it could be really difficult for people that haven’t been there, because it’s a lot of work and you’re spent. It’s hard! For us, that works.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2018 Conclusion: Anna Learns Henrik Is Her Son, Maxie Has Her Son, Ava Wows, Mike & Sonny Duet!

In the most moving and exciting episode of this 2018 GH Nurses’ Ball, all roads lead to the truth about Henrik and how he is really living his life as none other than Peter August (Wes Ramsey).  First, Robert (Tristan Rogers) who has punched out by Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) on stage drags him outside of the ballroom for his part in the cover[up.  Robert is worried about Anna’s (Finola Hughes) safety. Nina (Michelle Stafford) confronts her husband about how long he’s known who Henrik is.  She later figures out why he has been trying to whisk her and Charlotte out of the country.

Onstage Mike (Max Gail) takes a mic, and makes a moment of saying he has Alzheimer’s and then launches into the song he remembers,“The Summer Wind.” As he sings, he imagines being accompanied by a big band as he proceeds to deliver a showstopper.  Suddenly, in reality, Mike is lost and disoriented … scared he stares around at the audience.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) gets up to the stage to help his dad by cluing him into the lyrics.  Sonny sings with Mike and gets him through the song.  They receive a standing ovation.

Ava (Maura West) who is preparing to perform her number comes across a moment between Kiki (Hayley Erin) and Griffin (Matt Cohen) backstage where they are in a hug.  Little does Ms. Jerome know that Griffin was consoling Kiki after her lewd run-in with Dr. Bensch (James DePaiva).   Then it is Maura West, who truly brings down the house for this year’s ball with her Ava’s rendition of “You Don’t Own Me.”  That tune was certainly a nod to all those that Ava feels have wronged her.  Yup! Sonny, Griffin and Kiki we think are some on her list!   Dressed in a white pant suit and accompanied by a bevy of male dancers, West knocked the interpretation of the song out of the park, to make it work for her character and the Nurses’ Ball.

Elsewhere, Maxie (Kristen Storms) has gone into labor, and Peter is right there safely delivering her baby boy. Maxie is taken by paramedics to the hospital, while Peter calls Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) at Maxie’s urging to let him know what happened.  Spinelli has just found out, through Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) that Peter is Henrick!

Anna is walking into a trap on the pier as she waits for Henrick. When he appears, he has no idea that Anna is his mother, and thinks it’s all been a set-up.  He points a gun to eliminate her once and for all, but Anna says she has something to tell him.

The Nurses’ Ball concludes with a touching finale of “Champion” featuring: Epiphany (Sonya Eddy), Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Amy (Risa Dorken) and the other nurses.

So, what did you think of the final episode of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2018?  What did you think of the musical performances? Do you think Maxie’s baby will be OK? Will Anna be able to tell Henrik that she is his mom? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
