GENERAL HOSPITAL: Jake Comes To Sonny's Rescue! Now He Has To Tell Carly The Groom Has Been Shot!



On Tuesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, looks like “Jake” AKA Jason (Billy Miller) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally in each others orbit in a major and very familiar way – with Jason coming to the rescue of Sonny.

After Sonny is shot on his wedding day, while trying to free a kidnapped TJ (Tequan Richmond), shots are fired and hit the mobster so bad that things look dire.   It is then none other than “Jake “that stumbles upon the scene and goes into Jason the enforcer mode, and fires shots at the men working for the other side.  After everyone else is down, Jake goes to Sonny to try to stop him from bleeding out.  Sam (Kelly Monaco) is witnessing this all go down, which also seems eerily familiar.  It is then that Sonny utters that “he knew he would come”, inferring that Sonny believes Jason was there with him.  As the police arrive, Sonny tells “Jake” to tell Carly (Laura Wright) he loves her!

Back at Sonny house’s, the Corinthos men, and Carly, Lulu (Emme Rylan), Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), and baby Avery are gathered around for the nuptials as Carly seems to be focusing on the positive, even though Sonny has not shown up yet for the big event.  As Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) and Michael (Chad Duell) start to worry as to their father’s whereabouts, so too does Morgan.  

At the end of the episode, it is Jake that walks in wearing a blood-stained trenched blue t-shirt to tell his dear friend Carly that Sonny has been shot.  The look on Carly’s face at the episode as it faded to black tells it all! And, what will Morgan (Bryan Craig) do when he learns his father (who said he would go with him to the doctor the next day to help him deal with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder) may not make it to be there for him ever again?

So, what did you think of “Jake” saving Sonny?  Did you like how Sonny was thinking it was Jason?  Do you think this will set the tone to move the “Jake” story forward?  Who do you think shot Sonny or was behind the hit? What did you think of the last seconds of the episode?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

I love it !!
This is great soap with capital S ..
I am intrigued and on the edge, that is good, very good.
RC is bringing it on !!
A mix of family, characters, and intriguing drama..

Thank god that RC’s writing goes to mid-Oct.
A big mistake to let Ron go, he is the only one to bring GH back up.
He has changed direction and it’s freshly great..

Morgan is going to freak when he sees Sonny dying, all will.
It will reunite the core Corinthos family !
Jake/Jason is gonna be good, getting to it, now..

After Luke’s exit, Ron came back at his best-

General Hospital is where it is happening !!

Good morning, su.
I think that when he was on the ground with Jake working on him, trying to staunchly tamp the bleeding, Sonny, as he was in another dimension (netherworld) due to his injury, subconsciously knew it was Jason. Good stuff. I really loved that scene. No, su…LOL. not the bleeding…I’m not too keen on gore…..but the eye contact between the two men. The bond is still there….it was so apparent, as their eyes locked for an instant. Great acting…believable!! I must say, the way Sonny turned to Jake, grabbing his shirt, as if he were his only lifeline really got to me. What is happening to me? LOL. Billy Miller just fills a room with his presence. I am so happy he has finally been given a much awaited time to show his true self and talent. God…he’s so beautiful!…those shoulders make me want to swoon, su. Are you with me?

Now if we could only get Victor to tug on your heart strings!

Hiyahh, Timmm. That will NEVER happen. LOL. I have known Victor for years…never has this man melted my heart in any way, shape or form. We shall see if Sonny behaves. I hope he lives, so he’ll be able to prove to me, he can be a good boy.
I do believe that this contrived scene, was presented, in living color, to have us pity Sonny…to endear him to us and put him in our good graces. Yeah, well. There’s still that small thing? You know, AJ’s murder? Poor Sonny!! I appreciated Sonny yesterday, but, I will not let it get to my head…LOL…Later, Timmm.

Why didnt Ron switch gears sooner! I know your answer will be Luke’s exit BUT it wasnt much of an exit! I hope these ladies dont lull us to sleep! If I see ONE music box!

Timm that is the million dollar question that GH fans will never get an answer to. I just hope Jelly don’t put us to sleep with another music box storyline.

Lol. I agree.

hey Timmm
after the Fluke stuff Ron needed a change up.. he has done it before..
He was OLTL and I was told he did character/family there very well yet he could change it up to whimsy, also.
Ron always gave variety, one thing I like about him.

A mistake to let him go and yet ABC liked his writing and kept him on with a new project, go figure.
We love Ron. We love his writing. He has a blind script with us in primetime that we are going to be focusing on for him.

Great episode didn’t see this coming can’t wait to see tomorrow’s episode I have been watching GH since 1965

This is what I loved about the Ron’s writing team.. Great Writing… Great Episode.. I am so disappointed with the writing change and dreading the new stories.. I am hoping that I am over reacting, but I am thinking that I am not…..

On another note…. I am back to DOOL… It has been a great couple of weeks with more action and good storylines… could Days really be back???????? Time will tell…

Days is on fire! Multi-generational characters, romance, love triangle, suspence, and adventure. I’m so impressed!

Days has been awesome. I hope GH is turning it around too.

AMAZING episode today!!!

I think it was Carlos who shot Sonny. I think this will trigger some memories for Jake. I think Sam will be more intrigued with Jake than ever before as he is a lot like Jason. Who else could handle a situation like that.

I’m thinking that somehow it’s Carlos who is the culprit.

I had an inkling, it is Dillon..
I really can see RC making Dillon involved..
I would luv Dillon involved and being dangerous on the sly..
I can see RC going that way and I would love love love it..
It would bring an important character alive..
But then again, perhaps not and just my wishful thinking.. .. lol

Omg you are so off , you really must be a newbie because if Dillon was ever turned into a killer out of the blue then more fans would know it was really time for RC to go.

Dillon makes movies about the mob, he doesnt act out as an actual mobster!

DILLON … Wow that is so way off way way off… heres a list Carlos far fetch but I can see that., Julian or AVA, Johnny Zaccara, Lorenzo Alcazar or possible the guy sonny offed (one of his russian men) at the 5 familys meeting at ryans bar a month or so ago. But no way is it going to be Dillon jus saying

What about Carlos? Maybe the water kept him alive. If Ava lived, so could have he. It’s a vicious circle.

Pier 54 is magic !
the dead are risen in the waters of 54..
perhaps it is a leftover from the aliens..

And- I am sticking with;
Dillion is involved …

Yeah, su. There is a vortex within the water depths of pier 54. Anyone who is dumped or falls in there goes to another alien land. All past characters are there living the life, where the monarch is Queen HELLena wielding her mighty, spiky mace/whip/scepter.

Hi, su.
Make me understand why you think it’s Dillon. What is your reasoning. I know nothing about him, except that he is a Q and was involved with both Lulu and Georgie. Was he a baddie?

Moving things along…..I must say that the yelling match at the hospital with Slick Rick, the D!@k turned me off. Amazing how none of the hospital staff came out telling them to shut up or get out!
It was so wrong on all levels. And the story continues…..Sonny gets a pardonnot only from the governor, but now from Michael. The fact remains….Sonny still killed AJ, Michael’s father. It’s so weird to me how easily he was absolved by the Q’s. Even Tracie was sorry for the shooting. Really?! It makes no sense. Michael is losing what integrity he has left. This is exactly what I said before. Sonny was shot just so we, the viewers, and particularly, Michael would forgive Sonny’s cold-blooded, murderous heart. Pity party, everyone….poor, poor Sonny. Not impressed!!

Hated the entire episode. It’s their fifth wedding. Sonny was shot for the 538th time. Who cares? It’s the same played out Mob garbage we’ve seen a thousand times. The only exciting thing would be if Sonny actually died.
I truly wish GH would tell a real story without gun violence and the same tired characters making the same bad decisions.

Sony’s in the mob. To have him shot while trying to save TJ shows the dichotomy of this character. He can be ruthless and destroy people in the blink of an eye, yet not have to think twice about risking his own life when someone he cares for is in danger. I also think Hayden’s slowly returning memory coupled with Jake’s once again razor sharp killing instincts are finally leading up to the Jason reveal.

I LIKE Sam and NuNeaton together. They have much more chemistry than Liz and “Jake.” Just feel bad that Patrick and Emma will be hurt…

Correction…Sonny not Sony; NuJason not whatever that word is that auto spell so graciously added. Insert SCREAM!!

Great comment, Rebeeca.

Wow, Dylan! I must apologize. After re-reading the posts, I realized your reply was directed to su when you said to “follow your own advise”. Sometimes it gets confusing following all the comments…who is writing to whom, right?….I should have figured it out since you seem to lock heads with her on a regular basis…LOL.
You know I love your posts. Poor, su…she means well. ‘Night

I think its Brad’s adoptive father who shot Sonny and is trying to frame Julian and take Sonny’s territory.

I think it’s Brads bio mom. At the 5 families meeting the woman was so quick to defend Sonny to the rest. I think she’s behind it

Yawn. Haven’t seen an episode in two weeks. Wake me when something happens to a character I care about.

you woke up long enough to read the post and then speak on it though…zzzzzzz……

If you want to comment on the show and how boring it is, that is how you would do it.

LOL! right? Davlestev1

Awwww, downtownla. Sonny did well for me in his ‘bleeding’ scene. But, never mind him. Do you care at all about Billy’s Jake? Well, I love him. And, guess what? He finally jumped into action…..that’s what happened!!!! That’s a good thing, right? He had been immobile for so long….Is this a flashback into Jason Morgan? Hmmmmm……

Yep, Cee Cee. I choose a good time to end my three week long break from GH. Miller comes alive! I did love the look in his eye after he shot down the henchmen–you could see the incarnation of Jason Morgan flickering in his eyes.
The best acting is done with one’s eyes and Miller showed us he is capable of being great.

Trust me, I want to like these characters. I’ve spent years with them! But it’s just hard when they do really heinous things to each and then don’t get punished for it. I used to be able to tell who the good guys and the bad guys were and the occasional characters that moved in between. Now they all just seem so icky to me. I have enough energy to read the recaps, but even then, I am skimming them for the names I want to see. But I do like reading these posts, as I find them more entertaining than the show itself. At least that amuses me.

The Tony exit engulfed GH ..
and- that was not all of Ron’s doing..
They could not out Jason during that time, as planned by Ron, because the excitement, the impact of Jason back would take the spotlight off Tony..
Tony gone and boom Jason lives !!!

Hi, downtownla.
Oh, believe me. My heart is your heart. Sonny, and all his ilk have been the bane of my existence in and out of fiction. It is even a joke putting Ava in jail. We all know what the outcome will be. Either Connie is still alive….held prisoner somewhere….or with amnesia; or Ava will get off with the most trivial of reasons. Those who do, finally, get their just desserts, their comeuppance,….well, they still manage to resurrect.
Too much power is given to criminals….”The greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse”. (Edmund Burke). I never realized the true meaning of those words untiI I started watching soaps. LOL.
Yeah, I bitch and complain; but I still love my posts.
I’m with you, though. I love the posts….very addictive for me. I’ve never been addicted to anything….by body is as clean as a whistle…LOL. but, these sites are doing me in. HaHa…later.

Lol. I meant to say…, I love my soaps, not posts.
It makes me sound so full-of-myself…I am as humble as can be!!LOL.

It was an ok episode but knowing Sonny is alive for the 100th time kills(pun) any possible suspense…being a top mobster youd think he’d send one of his goons or at least wear a bullet proof vest…but this is Superman Sonny…lol…i agree with the other poster…lets have some stories without the gun violence…but at least the shot Sonny means the hospital gets a storyline…lol

Jim, I think Sonny must have more holes in him than Sponge Bob Square Pants.

Sonny’s just one big hole…he’s an ‘—hole’…lol

Yup, Jimh. As I said…this scene was so smoothly buttered, with a cherry on top for extra flavor. It was planned that way. You are right. Such a ‘high-class’ mobster does not travel alone…even if he is ordered to do so….there is a reason behind the shooting, for sure. Now, the more important question for me is….who shot him?

It has been quite awhile since there has been good excitement that revolves around Sonny’s business ..
I am glad that there is again some awesome (what is called mob stuff) back!!
After all- GH’s main family is by business or by family mob stuff..
but- the mob is near extinct and am so happy Jason lives to liven it up!!

I see people bitching about the mob, the 2 mobsters are not a mob) but there has not been a mob story for a very long time.
we have seen Julian and Sonny threatening each other over the pier but that is far from a story.

Sonny’s shooting will be about the family uniting, Morgan losing it, Michael back into the fold and that good stuff the mob will be less in comparison..
More so family not mob..
I want a good mob war!! haven’t had one of those in years, maybe decades! like it was and no longer is, bring it back!

the Sonny & Jason scene was gold!!
I really enjoyed the action,,

Hi, su.
I know you like the excitement of mob-wars and how they live on the edge. I also know you have been waiting a while for some action. But, you must see the other side of the coin.
I think that this episode was partly designed to show the effects; the aftermath, per se; the pain that the repercussions of what living a violent life will do to the families. Jordan, with her motherly, protective instincts knew that danger was TJ’s shadow. It was/is inescapable when flirting with a life of crime.
Now, Sonny and Julian are the mob. It makes no difference the number. I think you are getting a little confused. You think that because there are only two mobsters in PC , does not a mob make. But, in fact, they are the mob. They are part of the general term; a part of a larger group that encompasses all of these degenerates. They do not all have to live in the same place, as a group, to be called a mob.
I am glad you are experiencing gratification, su….but, for me, the glorification of the mob is abhorring and passe’.
Now, if we are to speak of the acting? Everyone was superb. I expected no less from Billy or Carly….yes, I know, I do not admire Carly, but I do admire Laura’s talent.
And, yes. The Sonny and Jason scene was gold, as you so descriptively put it. It was the best of Sonny yet, for me. I realize the two had forged the most bonding of friendships two men ever could. Yet, I will be completely disheartened and disappointed if the ungodly alliance is revisited with Jake. Yes, Billy could play the baddie, the mobster with the hard-as-a-rock heart and impenetrable skin,…..but I hope Jake sees the error of Jason’s ways when he snaps out of this stupor. At, least for the sake of his mother and children. Sometimes people do not get their priorities straight……the family is the bones of one’s existence….no other love can match it. Later gator.

Yes, Jimh. Sonny is alive for the umpteenth time. What do you think of this….Sonny will be paralyzed, in a wheelchair. After a few weeks, he will get so stir crazy, he will go nuts, yelling at everyone…refusing his mess. There goes taking care of Morgan’s potential mental issue. Sonny is always on the front burner…no room for his son or anyone else. I don’t get it. Has Sonny ever been in a wheelchair due to a shooting before?
Everything herein will be predictable. Do you agree? What do you say? I’d like your take on poor, poor Sonny’s plight. LOL.

I really wished Sonny and Luke had been secret lovers for years and together they disapeared on that fog-shrouded pier…but no AmseterDAMN luck…lol

Cee Cee…Also noticed how Sonny came first for Carly when she let Morgan storm out of the hospital in his erratic rage after she raised the alarm about him possibly being bi-polar. As did Michael…I think his comment was something like Morgan had to go blow off some steam. Wow!

Hi, Rose.
WOW, is right!! Gosh , unreal, right? I would have run after my son, considering his state of mind. Carly continuously amazes me. What’s with these writers? Is any of them a parent?

HaHa, Jimh. Never too late. Hilarious.

Just an FYI to everyone saying this is still RC’s writing-to clarify yes it’s his outline/Bible but JP & SA have been making changes to existing scripts/stories since their arrival 8/10-which is when some of this starting filming. Also JP has been there since June tweaking scripts so it may be RC’s bible but it’s not all his details.

Second I LOVE it-to see the rich use of S&C’s history with the “Tell Carly I love her” feels like old GH is coming back where romance & character driven stories & not plot points will be told.

Having read all the new HW’s vision I’m uber excited & feel they can have GH out of the hole that RC’s writing dug them into. My very best wishes for their success.

Thank you!! Exactly what I have been saying!! Ron was fired back in July, and when a firing is that seemingly abrupt, there have already been MAJOR talks and negotiating with the new writers. By the time it was officially announced, they probably had a 6 month long term draft done up! So yes, Ron would have had long term story projections in place, but anY actual scripts that he had a hand in would have been used up 2-3 weeks later, as that is how far ahead the show shoots. No WAY is Ron a part of the day to day writing, dialogue, scene structure, narrative style that is currently airing. No writer can drastically alter their entire style when they knew their days were over….nor would they! Ron would want to go out with some enormous outrageous bang, not make a sudden shift to family and characters. Exbibit A..the Silas murder….any idiot knows that Ron would have dragged that out until November sweeps! It was hastily, quickly, and mercifully ended because it was a typical predictable Ron plot. Ladies and Gentlemen…RC has left the building!!! Not a rating point too soon!!

I just love the way you sum things up, Dylan. Nothing else to add.

Yes, yes, and yes. Dylan & JB are correct! Thank you both for pointing this out.

Ah, that makes sense, thanks.

Good point, and that’s true, because I’ve noticed Jean Passanante’s name in the opening credits over the past week or two, listed after Carlivati, so she has definitely been involved in the show. And not coincidentally, I feel the show picking up again over the past 2 weeks.

I don’t think Ron is the devil incarnate that some people make him out to be, I think overall he did a solid job on GH when you look at his full body of work. But undeniably, the quality of the show went downhill in the past few months, the ratings plummeted, and changes were made. As Su always likes to point out, that’s the soap business. I think the show will be in good hands with Jean and Shelly.

Jean is in with the writers getting her foot in the door, acquainted with GH..
She is not writing the scripts so to say..
She was a breakdown writer perhaps that is what she is doing, but mostly in with the writers getting to know the characters and the writers,
Ron’s writing is on screen now.. Jean did not write these stories, not yet.

and- there is no ”notice” in advance when someone is let go, sometimes they here they were let go on twitter, we know that as true.
Anyways.. Ron is still with ABC as a prometime writer, ABC kept him.

It has been quite awhile since there has been good excitement that revolves around Sonny’s business ..
I am glad that there is again some awesome (what is called mob stuff) back!!
After all- GH’s main family is by business or by family mob stuff..
but- the mob is near extinct and am so happy Jason lives to liven it up!!

I see people bitching about the mob, the 2 mobsters are not a mob) but there has not been a mob story for a very long time.

the Sonny & Jason scene was gold!!
I really enjoyed the action,,

ooops last post stuck in the C&P, sorry of the repete..

Suoo, you’re sorry for the repeat of a repeat?
No need to be sorry–we’re used to it.

Su you are so deluded I cant even follow your posts. No mob wars??? There is at least one every couple months. I dont know what you consider a mob war…I consider bullet riddled shoot outs mob wars. So does everyone else. And there was one yesterday when Sonny got shot. Before that there was one when Duke died. Before that there was the one where damn near everyone got shot…Ava, Carlos, Julian, 12-15 associates, etc. Before that, there was the heartwarming Christmas mob war where Morgan shot Max. What on Earth are you talking about no mob or no mob war for decades?? Perhaps you and Morgan need the same prescription…

Su, there may not be notice given to the fired person….but they dont wake up one day, and arbitrarily decide to fire the headwriter of a show, without having first made plans. They didnt fire Ron and go scrambling to find an available headwriter. Of course Jean and Shelly were contacted beforehand, negotiations and deals were secured, writing outlines were done, and THEN the formal announcement of the writing switch was made.It was not one thing…it was an accumulation of many things…Ron’s abusive hostile social media tendencies, record low ratings in all demographics, ludicrous stories, viewer discontent….they would have looked ridiculous if they did NOT make a change! When any business is failing, execs need to look at the root cause. In this case, the writing was the culprit. You can (and will, incessantly) argue, and deny, and bully, and threaten, and bluster, and carry on, but thats because you know its true but refuse to admit it.

@JB – I carefully watched the credits today and there was no mention of Shelly Altman anywhere. It said Head Writer: RC and Jean P was listed as a writer, so you are incorrect. Su is right.

I don’t believe I mentioned SA in my orginial post-I said JP who has been there & tweaking things. Also in my orginial post I didn’t say that JP & SA’s bible or writing had officially started-again only tweaking.

So before you @ me saying I’m incorrect perhaps re-read my orginial post.

Believe what you want to believe but every actor at GHFCW confirmed JP had been making changes to existing scripts.

Don’t like pushing the seasons, but October can’t come soon enough if it finally ends RC’s influence over stories. There were good moments at the beginning of his era, but then we had to endure Fluke, and now another “bright” story on it’s heels…Sonny getting shot on his I-don’t-care, been-there-done-that wedding day.

Looking forward to new, fun, positive writing energy. I don’t mind if there is still some mob and crime stories. Gives Anna/PCPD something to do…just not a diet of them. It is after all called General Hospital, not Mobster Inc.

Hi Rose. Read my post above. RC has indeed, left the building. Cheers!

@Dylan – I carefully watched the credits today and there was no mention of “Shelly Altman” anywhere. It said Head Writer: RC and Writers: Jean Passante was listed as one of 4 writers. SU is right.


I have to say;
Billy Miller was superb! He had it perfect. bravo Billy !!
(I’d bet he was happy to get it going)
It was one of the best scenes of the week.. and the best is yet to come.

There was great acting and emotions from all ..
There is much good to say about GH..

((Its just as easy to point out the good of GH as the hate for it, that have have.

Bravo Billy Miller!!! Whoot Whoot!

i think it was a great episode today, hope this moves things along for Jake to remember who he is. This is going to bring the whole family together, I think Morgan will be okay he has Michael to help him right now. I hope it doesn’t go until November sweeps. Also I do think it’s Asia quarter .

I don’t know I’m torn–first off don’t you think Sonny who is a seasoned mob boss when going into an unknown situation without any bodyguards would have a bullet proof vest in his car and put it on before going inside the warehouse? Second, hanging out with his wife and kid doesn’t trigger memories for Jake, but trying to save Sonny does? How close were those two since I wasn’t watching during that time? It just seems odd. But I did like Sonny in his state being able to see Jason in Jake– that was a nice touch. And OMG, Jake walking into Carly’s with a bloodstain shirt– was pure and classic soap fade out– making me yell at my television set Noooo it can’t be over it was just getting to the good part. So for me there good moments and not so good moments –like Maxie being on speed about wedding details–honestly can’t they give that character a Valium?- like I said torn

Remember, Jason and Sonny spent a lot of time together so I can see why maybe Jake had a flash. He seems to have them in high pressure situations, as well.

Mary how close were Jason & Sonny you ask? Well when they weren’t playing cops and robbers they were open mouth kissing in the living room. Translation it was then and it is now going to be a sickening relationship it realty tickles me that we have posters that were unhappy about the Jason & Sonny hour and yet are singing like a canary with glee that it is happening again. I have never seen a soap opera held hostage by actors as this one MB & TG and funny I have enjoyed the show when they were not on now here we go again non stop Jason Carly Sonny & Sam.

Hi, K/Kay.
If I may; not all viewers are rejoicing over the revival of Sonny’s and Jason’s ‘love affair’. I only know of their ‘fraternal’-like, strong relationship through these sites and utube.
Nonetheless, I don’t think fans are waiting with bated breath for them to pick up where they left off. For myself? I simply appreciated how special that scene was. I saw Jason Morgan, albeit I do not know him. …Something inside him stirred a deep, dormant and somewhat feral emotion which catapulted him into action. That is what grabbed me with a cold hand.
Sonny’s acting was not too shabby either. They communicated something mystical through their eyes and the slightest of touches.
In Jake, I saw a controlled anger which energized him to do what was to be done with the situation at hand…by rote, it seemed. Like a automaton. I thought the atmosphere was charged; palpable. Considering my dislike for Sonny and the mob, that’s saying a lot. I saw fire in Jake’s eyes. That bellicose, warlike, fixed stare spoke volumes. I can’t say enough about Billy’s acting.
Harry also referred to his eyes. And, Mary read the scene and Jake in a nutshell. The last thing I want to see is Jake fall back into his past life. However, we cannot deny that both actors did a ‘mahvelous’ job. At least, that was what I intended to accentuate, not to get chummy with Sonny again.
We shall see what happens once Jake comes into his own. In my heart of hearts, Kay, I would love to see Jake be Jason Q. …..get to spend time with his mother and children before anything else.

Cee Cee…re: Jake’s demeanour and eyes in saving Sonny and TJ…that’s why Spinelli called him Stonecold. The name stuck.

Thank you, Rose. Makes sense…Jake’s demeanor was stone-cold…..determination was evident in his every move; and pore.

What Cee Cee said.
Kay, I am so over Sonny being shot, and GH trying to be the poor man’s Sopranos. I watched The Sopranos–it was a brilliantly written and acted show. GH is no Sopranos nor should it try to be.
While I detest the fact that Jake morphing into Jason seemed to be predicated upon Sonny and his silly mobster games, I did appreciate Miller finally being allowed to come alive as he has pretty much has been sleep walking through his scenes since arriving in Port Charles. It was good to see Miller show fans just how good he can be when given the chance.

Hey everybody I was being sarcastic about the sick relationship these two have had in my opinion Mary asked I was being funny. Now as for acting I would not know and will not critique since this fall I quit all the shows have went back to college with my daughter to finish my degree and she made me promise no soap watching ! Lol!

Stopped watching. In fact, I have switched to Days, and i am loving it! Yesterday’s episode was fantastic, the return of Bo and another strangled victim. I’m amazed that it’s not being covered here.

Michael has covered DAYS quite well. He has interviewed returning cast members and has done posts on their 50th anniversary.

Yes, he did, Timmm. Michael Fairman has been fantastic and informative with covering Days. There are, at least. 4-5 sites centered on Days, right now.

How many times has Sonny been shot now. Yawn. I hope the new writers move away from this wash, rinse, and repeat cycle.

They havent for the last 19 years……but I hope they do too.

No better than the crap over at DAYS; Stefano in charge again and more rinse repeat. Oh wait, they even are doing a new Strangler storyline — how frigging original. NOT.

Maybe you’re right, but at least on Days we’re not stuck with the same three nauseating characters at the expense of every long time veteran

Ces…or how about Hilary being held captive by fairly disturbed Neil on Y&R, just after the two Jacks story when real Jack was kept prisoner with fairly disturbed Kelly keeping him company.

Just saying, all these shows recycle stories over & over. Pretty hard to come up with original stories I guess.

THIS is what I wanted to see! Billy Miller in Jason mode and Sonny being a human! I loved their scenes together! ALMOST as good as Billy and Leslie at the Q mansion!

Yup, Timmm. Jake is not gun-shy, either; that’s for sure. His expertise with a gun and precise action and moment proves Jason is definitely in Jake.

Do you like him and Sam together? I heard they were dating in real life. I think its a good match.

LOVED this episode!! Maxie was hilarious btw. Wish Valerie would go far, far away!!
Loved when Jake came to the wedding. He makes a great team with Sam — go away Liz. If I never see her face again, it won’t be soon enough. Jake & Sam!
Starting to really dig Hayden & Nicholas’ chemistry.
Ut oh, Anna is in trouble with Sloane!

Would have at least liked to see Carly & Sonny get married though; she looked so pretty 🙂 Oh well.
Looking forward to see what follows … can we pleassssse have a Jake reveal soon?

Agree with you about Valerie. She can’t go far enough, fast enough for me.

Dreadful writing + mediocre acting + pointless characterization = Epic Fail for Valerie.

Hi, Ces.
Liz and Jake should be history, I agree. But, I’m not feeling Billy and Kelly, yet. We shall see where the writers want Jake to go and with whom. However, Ces, I had said that Jake needs to go solo for a while.
I wish that once in a while, the writers would think of the children. A variety of men/women, in and out of their lives. I know it isn’t real, still……
Avery is so cute. I want to squeeze those chubby legs …her cheeks. I love how she’s trying to talk. So active.
As a mother with a baby, I notice things that should not be…such as Avery dropping her ‘teether’ on that dirty floor where thousands of feet traverse it continuously, and Maxie picks it up and gives it back to her. GERMS.

Hey CeeCee,
I didn’t notice Maxie picking it up and giving it back to Avery. Ew! How did I miss that?!! Avery is a very cute baby 🙂
I think Jake has the most chemistry with Carly but I’ll take Sam with him over Elizabeth any day. I think their chemistry is good … not great, but, at least she’s honest with him.

Goes to show you, Ces, that once a sleaze, always a sleaze. Believe it or not, I liked Grayson so much more than this guy, with a man-child chip on his shoulder. Grayson seemed more sincere, in a way…his love for Anna was genuine. Rodd’s delivery, not so much. And, here I was thinking Sloane was a good, altruistic guy under that I-can-be-bought-for-a-dime. He puts out a believable facade.
I am still hoping there’s much more to this guy. Blackmailing Anna is so low…spoiled, selfish brat. I don’t know how Sloane can come back from that ….to both Anna and the viewer.
If Carlos is alive, it will blow Sloane’s threat right out of the water. But, what if Carlos is alive? It would be the perfect crime. No one could prove anything. Perhaps Julian has been hiding him; waiting for the opportune time to use Carlos to his advantage. OR, another scenario would be….Julian has no idea he is alive. So, Carlos killed Sonny to show his fealty to Julian. Did they not part in sort of a not-too-friendly way? I cannot recall. So, Carlos is trying to prove himself and killing Sonny is his redemption.
But, Sonny won’t die….of course not!!
Oh, I forgot to say that Rebecca Budig has chemistry with everyone. I don’t know if you are familiar with her past work, but I am….(oops…I just bounced three feet off my the couch….Wow …loudest clap of thunder I ever heard…sorry) I am very familiar with what Rebecca can do.
If truth be known, I would love to see her and Billy together. That would be thunderous, sprinkled with lightening…perhaps the thunder I just heard is an omen …of good things to come, of course. LOL.
But, yes. I like the chemistry between Nikolas and Hayden, as well.

I totally agree with you on Sloane. I actually liked Grayson in the role; he was a bit softer around the edges, seemed like he really cared for Anna and I actually thought they had chemistry. I don’t understand why this Sloane came back; he’s hard, looks and acts devious and obviously we’re back to how the character was when he first came onto the scene. At this point, I don’t see GH investing in Sloane/Anna because there isn’t any chemistry between those two and he’s too much a sleaze as you’d say!
I really, really hope another back-from-the-dead character doesn’t resurface. I really want the Jerome family gone; all of them. No Carlos either.
I have watched Rebecca on AMC but I think I was just quitting AMC when she became a couple with Cameron Mathison?? Is that the right dude? Anyway, I do like her with Nicholas but I didn’t see any chemistry with Jake/Jason. Hopefully they won’t make her too evil when she gets all her memory back. If I remember correctly, Greenlee was b*tchy??

We do agree on Rodd as Sloane.
Yes Rebecca Budig, as Greenlee was coupled with Ryan (Mathisonn).But, I believe the love of her life was Leo (Josh Duhamel). Greenlee first appeared as a bat out of hell. ….much like Hayden. She was not well-received. But she won our hearts and she and Leo became a super-couple…until he fell and disappeared down the falls, and presumably, dies.
Yes, she and Nik are hot…sizzling! I was just comparing her to Sam. How spirited and sexy Hayden is, in comparison. But, as I had mentioned before, I can appreciate unexpected irony in any story. Jake and Hayden…imagine that!! LOL.

Were those tears from Sloane today CeeCee? Loved the scenes with Hayden and Nicholas today.

@at Ces.
I think those were heartfelt tears, Ces. Sloane is struggling within himself. He is caught up in a maelstrom of his own making due to power and avarice. Perhaps it’s the first time he felt real love for a woman, and he doesn’t know what to do with it? The problem is that no matter how he tries to mend this imbroglio, there is no guarantee Anna will forgive or forget. Anna is. Straight ‘n narrow kind of person who mis-stepped. Thing is, I don’t think she did by killing Carlos. But, for Sloane to hold it over her head is irreparable. LOL, Ces….the worse fiend on soaps are forgiven if the writers want it so…
Yes, I agree, Hayden and Nikolas always bring it when they’re together… feel the electrical charge in their every scene. They are a good match. All they need is to fall in love….later.

No longer watching GH and I have to say that after reading this post, I don’t miss it. . Switched to DOOL, where you’ll find multi-generational characters/stories, character development, romance and a love story, a triangle rooted in the shows history, suspence rooted in the show’s history (Salem Strangler), and characters that we actually know and care about.

YELP!!!!! Stone Cold is back in full force. He just need to get all his Jason Q/Jason M memories back ASAP !!!!



Billy Miller was awesome!!!

I think the Jake story and its November reveal should involve a big, a huge unexpected switch: Jake Doe is NOT Jason Quartermaine Morgan but one of Helena’s experiments at control. Not even Robin knows the truth. Robin still believes that it was Jason she rescued from the fire at the clinic. But it wasn’t Jason, it was Helena’s soldier boy, a thoroughly programmed agent for her to use.

I think the Asian mob is behind it and framing Julian. My wish is for Bruce Weitz to return and play Anthony’s twin brother we never knew of. That way we usher back Bruce which is a great actor and Johnny Z returns. I would love to see what would happen if you put Johnny, Nathan, Dillon, Maxie and Lulu [Julie Berman] in the same room?

Yes,Yes,Yes…Now we’re cooking.

I’d loveeee for Johnny Z and Brandon Barash to return!! Much better than those boring Jeromes!

The Jeromes suck!


Great Episode!!!!!!

God, they killed it today and now Elizabeth with have to face what’s she’s done soon.

I can only hope she gets HERS!

I agree with CeeCee and others about Michael forgetting that Sonny killed A.J. This is a horrible idea to allow Michael to forgive Sonny for killing his father. The reason I left G.H. years ago is because the mob /Sonny was allowed to run rampant in Port Charles and keep Michael from A.J. I am truly disappointed that G.H. is letting Michael become close to that mobster again. It seems as if I’m leaving again because this is very discouraging.
Additionally, T.J. is talking stupid talk about his loyalty to Sonny. What fool would put his life in harms way?
I don’t know if this was Ron’s idea ; it was an absurd one .

GH’s Adam J. Harrington on Being a Recast John “Jagger” Cates: “There is No Way I Can Even Touch What Antonio Sabato Jr. Did With the Role in the Past … If They Are Going My Way They Were Going to Take This in a Different Direction”

General Hospital fans were recently in for a shock when a new man arrived in Port Charles who went by the name of John Cates. As it turns out John Cates used to go by the nickname of “Jagger” and had lived in the town many years ago.

That’s because actor Adam Harrington was recast in the role of FBI Cates. The part was originally made soap-famous in the 90’s by Antonio Sabato Jr. “Jagger” appeared on the ABC daytime drama series from 1992-1994 and then in its spinoff GH: Night Shift in 2008 before the character left Port Charles with his young autistic son. “Jagger” was also the older brother to the late Stone Cates (Michael Sutton).

Now in 2024, GH has brought the character back and Adam J. Harrington is on contract with the series. The actor spoke to Soap Opera Digest about the obvious difference in look and take on the role than “Jagger’s” original portrayer, Antonio Sabato Jr.

Adam expressed: “My take on it was that it’s been 30 years; they obviously wanted to take this in a new direction and see what they could do with this storyline. And I also thought, ‘There is no way I can even touch what Antonio Sabato, Jr. did with the role in the past.’ Although I know it would be jarring for fans, in some ways, I was very happy that I didn’t look like I was going to try to mimic or echo at all what they had done with that storyline.”

Chiming in on replacing an actor in a role made soap-famous by someone else, Harrington added, “Obviously, if they’re going my way, they were going to take this in a different direction with so much time having passed. TV is immortal and still very much fresh in people’s minds, but like I said, I took the recasting and looking so obviously different as them saying, ‘Okay, we’re going to take this in a different direction and we are not trying to replace or touch what was originally a beautiful story.”’

Previously, Sabato Jr. had a few things to say about not being asked back to reprise his signature role for more than 30 years by the ABC soap opera.

As to just who this new version of John Cates will be romantically linked with, fans are seeing a spark between he and Jordan (Tanisha Harper), or could he wind up with Anna (Finola Hughes), or another lady on the canvas? “I think there is an element here of him coming to town, throwing a new guy into the mix,” Harrington shares.”We’ll see who he quote-unquote bonds with and who he doesn’t.”

So what do you think of the recast John “Jagger” Cates? Do you like where the show is taking the character? Do you appreciate Adam’s candor on acknowledging what Antonio Sabato Jr. did with this role in the past? Comment below.

Burton originally filed for divorce in July 0f 2022. In court documents, the two separated in March of that year as Burton cited “irreconcilable differences.” When Sheree announced the impending birth of her fourth child, Burton took to his Instagram and clarified, “She recently announced that she’s expecting her 4th child. The child is not mine. We are still co-parenting our three beautiful kids. We would appreciate privacy at this time. Much luv, Steve.”

Gustin, who is a fitness guru, now goes by Sherrie Lynn on her official Instagram account. Since her divorce from Burton, and the births of her most recent children, Sherrie has not addressed the situation publicly.

Just how Jason will be revealed to be alive after a cave collapsed on him, and he was believed to have died, is one of great mystery for soap fans.
