GENERAL HOSPITAL: Jason Gets The Quartermaines Control Of ELQ: Michael Back In Charge, Tracy Has Some Kind Words!

Courtesy/ABC

On Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Jason (Billy Miller) brings the Quartermaine family some good news. He has wrestled control of  ELQ away from Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher)!

How he did it he won’t reveal exactly to the family, but as viewers know Jason has some mighty explosive information that would put Nikolas behind bars if he didn’t sell over all the stocks.  Those stocks combined now give controlling interest back to the company that the late Edward built.

Jason with Sam in tow (Kelly Monaco) stop by Tracy’s (Jane Elliot) hospital room to inform her of the latest developments, and with Monica (Leslie Charleson) and Michael (Chad Duell) all gathered around explains that he bought the shares of ELQ from Nikolas.  With a mighty assist from Diane (Carolyn Hennesy), the shares are now back along with Edward’s wishes and instructions to run the company.  When Tracy questions Jason and if he plans on running the compan, Jason says he has decided he is putting Michael in charge.  Michael is elated, and so is Monica.

And in the most touching moment of the episode, and played by the brilliance of Jane Elliot, Tracy softens for a moment. With tears in her eyes, she says to Jason (as he is about to exit her room):   “Jason, wait!  When you rejected the Quartermaine name you turned your back on the family, and you broke your grandfather’s heart, and I am not sure he ever really got over that.  But, I am fairly certain that at this exact moment he’s smiling at you.”   Jason is touched by Tracy’s words, but remains stoic.

Later, Michael meets up with Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright), and fills him on the ELQ transaction, and that he is going to be in charge of running the company.  He tells his parents that he is happy that the Quartermaines have their company back, and promises he is not going to denounce the Corinthos name this time around.  When alone with Sonny, Michael tells him he is proud to be a Corinthos, too.   Sonny also informs Michael that they captured Carlos (Jeffrey Vincent Parise), but Sabrina (Teresa Castillo) and her baby were nowhere to be found.  Michael seems to not be able to shake Sabrina and let it go, even at Sonny’s urging to do so.

So, are you happy that the Q’s have ELQ back?  What did you think of the moment when Tracy finally had some kind words for Jason?  Do you think Michael should be running the company?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

I teared up at Tracy’s words to Jason. ♡ I like this mix of Jason Quest and Jason Morgan, he’s the best of both.

I haven’t seen it yet…

I bawled… when right out of the blue… she tells Monica… “I Love You”

this Story Line… is Magic… yeah, posts have said … this story with the “worms” is a remake and/or retread

but Jane Elliott PLUS these heart LOAD of tearjerker is dam spill

and it’s not even in the context of : I thought I was going to die… or a make up for what a itch I’ve been….. LOL

it’s Tracy Quartermania

tears, cheer, heart , show stopper, back in charge with ELQ

I don’t think Tracy is being sentimental Patrick, I think the worms and or surgery affected her emotions. Either she actually feels more deeply or can’t stop herself from expressing them. Just as Jason’ surgery suppressed his emotions and “Stone Cold” was born, I think the opposite happened to Tracy.

@Rebecca

well said…

“… she actually feels more deeply or can’t stop herself from expressing them ”

that’s the phenom of the ACT

it’s marvel and riveting

show stopper

Ms. Tracy who minds her steely resolve

it’d be GREAT if … while in this story… to see a Man catch her EYE

at the very least… see her exhibit some emotion with Alice
i’m a couple eps back…. so… If I SEE any thing like… with Ned… i’m going to lose it

Plus, I really loved The scene between Tracy and Jason when she thanks him. Jane Elliot is the best. It’s also nice that Michael is back to running ELQ. A couple of years ago who would have thought Jason, Michael and Tracy would be team Q.

Agreed! Please, please do not return him to the mob! Still not liking JaSam though. Not quite sure how selling his shares to the Qs gets Nick off the hook with Hayden. Wouldn’t she still turn him in out of spite?

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Oh, Melissa….because she loves him, don’t you know??
Maybe, Hayden realizes Nik was between a rock and a hard place. He had no choice?
However, Patrick does have a point. If Hayden goes to the cops with Curtis as her investigator, and becsuse of his probable ‘dark’ past; how much credence will he have?
Also, Nik can turn around and accuse her of blackmail…..what a travesty!!!! Damned if you do and damned if you don’t imbroglio.

THAT… is one beautiful token of appreciation.. and heartfelt tug coming from Tracy to Jason.

– yet, Jason remains stoic ”

ugh! he’s coming across as more blasé than anything… he’s not cold stone Steve Burton…

I actually miss Steve Burton… he spoke less…. and SO DID SAM…. Yikes ! enough

argh! the writing for this couple more than anything is making me cringe!

Sam and Jason… are not… Bonnie and Clyde… they are not the upwardly mobile above the law patriots… LOL

they are a flatline couple… with no steamy lack interest… no chemistry… just dullard

I agree, B Miller’s Jason is a bore. They should have kept him as Jake and made him the new person for Elizabeth. The reason why Jake and Liz was a bust was because from day one, we knew that they were not going to be end story and the writing went the direction of stirring him towards Sam from the get go. It was never truly a love story written for Jake and Liz. So how were the characters suppose to truly be invested in the story as if it was really written for them to win. Which was… Read more »

I am hopeful this is a key moment when we note the GH ship is righting and current writers realize and see the importance of the Quartermaine family in the show’s legacy and future. So many of the family members have been dispatched when they should not have been. I do not want anymore resurrections but this seems a solid course correction. Now please grow from here!

I wouldn’t mind seeing AJ rise again..lol..he shouldn’t have left the building in the first place. Lol, maybe they can make his death a product of Tracy’s ” infestation”. They can say it was wishful thinking during the relish war and was just one long wish fulfillment dream. Now, she’/s cured…enter AJ alive and well back at the mansion. I know…a tad too far fetched. Ok, no it isn’t ie masks, aliens world freeze, hints at vampires. Maybe we have room for one more….

I totally concur, Rebecca.
I do adore Tracy and don’t mind her showing her softer side. But I would really like some good old fashioned bantering to transpire between Monica and Tracy.
I remember the good old days when Tracy screamed at Monica that she needs to go back to the gutters from whence she came.
Those were the good old days.
I would like Tracy to hook up with Doctor Mayo. Why? Because he barks at people the same way Edward did and Tracy still has Daddy issues. I could see him as the new patriarch of the house.

Mr. Fairman stepped in last week and ask us to be nice. I am going to be REAL nice here! The newest writers, Jean and Shelly promised stories, focus on the hospital and legacy characters. Ladies, you did it! Thank you! In the past you wouldnt have seen that scene with Tracy and the announcement the the Q’s got back ELQ. It would have only been mentioned and we would have never seen Tracy, Monica and Michael together. It was SO freakin great to see this scene. Some say Anthony Geary passed the torch to Sonny when he went off… Read more »

it’s the funniest thing… Jason Quartermaine… has no personality

“has NO PERSON’ality”

he’s a Quartermaine with no wherewithal

he returned ELQ to…

???? is this… what? a pledge… a bit of move…

he’s stuck with Sam…. he’s stuck with Carly and Sonny

he’s just NOT present

what’s the point ? after all this time

Sam never had a moment…. Jason is just as lame… no trigger no means no IN the moment… just slay as the cutesy cutesy couple

what a waste of Billy Miller

jesus… just stick him now.. with Carly and Sam.. and end it all

be done with this part of GH

bye bye

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

Patrick, I agree with you 100 percent! Billy Miller is a good actor. The writers need to shift gears NOW before his contract is up and he wasted two years of his/our life! MAYBE by him being the one to get the shares back this is a step towards his Quatermaine roots? They better hurry!

Awwwww, my Timmmy. You are so sensitive and sentimental. Not too many men would show that side of themselves. Love it, Timmm, and I agree. I was just as pleased with the turn of events. Kudos to the writers.
I just wish that Michael would stop wearing two faces. Not very becoming. He turned his back on his real father and the Q name. He does not deserve to run ELQ for so many reasons.
Therefore, I do hope ‘the ladies’ will remedy that by showing Michael the error of his ways. Shine a light on it !!!!!!

@Timmm. Hey, Timmmy, I am stating a fact….just as you call ’em as you see ’em; so do I. You are the ‘bestest’ of the best. And, yes, Tracy should run ELQ, albeit she contributed to its downfall by trusting Fluke. I think she will not make the mistake of trusting a man again. I think she has become very cynical where men are concerned. I also think her emotions are all over the place now….something is a-stir in that head of hers. So, perhaps ELQ should not be in her hands right now. Michael will need guidance. Can you… Read more »

@Timmm….I always enjoy hearing your gentlemanly views! Yes, Luke was a real roue’ who probably never deserved the likes of Laura, and we should thank our lucky stars that she wasn’t reunited with him in the end. (Although what I was looking for was a respectful acknowledgement and fond farewell between former spouses/parents of two children, not necessarily a full-on rapprochement and resumption of a long-lost love, which Geary refused to give us….but that is now water under the bridge.)

Whoops! Sent too soon, there Timmster! To continue: Having said that, I’m absolutely thrilled that Laura has finally found a man worthy of her attentions and affections….it’s been a long time coming, when you consider she started with the once rather dreamy Scotty, then pivoted to Luke—with brief and not always willing, intervals of those Cassadines, Stavros and Stephan—back to Luke and lastly—and unsuccessfully—to that shyster Scotty again! Kevin is the perfect type of guy for her, and she is the right sort of woman for him….far better than that tawdry tramp, Lucy! I do so hope that they have… Read more »

Hey, Fanny,
I am so happy for Laura….I hope this goes somewhere. I remember how everyone wanted Laura in a long-lasting and meaningful relationship. Kevin was one of the men mentioned. They are so at ease with each other. I like the prospect of a few more ‘sightings’ between these two. A bientot, ma chere.

Hi Fanny…as I mentioned to Patrick above Im thinking this isn’t a kinder, gentler Tracy. I THINK…could be wrong…but I think her emotions are all over the place due to the worms and/or surgery. As Jason way back when became Stone Cold because his emotions were suppressed during his surgery years ago, I think Tracy’s might be magnified or at least not under her ability to control…

Fanny
Guest
Fanny

@Rebecca Hi, if that’s the case we’re in for quite a bumpy ride…
While everyone is still in a jovial mood due to Jason’s generosity of
returning ELQ to the FAMILY… Michael should take his Cue from
Jason and offer Tracy a position at ELQ, it’s what she longs for.

Oui, Fanny! At long last love for Laura! It’s about time, eh??? I do so hope I am not the only one who is looking forward to a realistic, yet joyful, portrayal of a romance between two people of a “certain age” who have found one another, especially after each having experienced heartbreak from undeserving spouses. There is certainly something to be said for a meeting of the minds, an easy rapport, an intelligent dialogue that can actually be far more sensual than acting like hormonally-unhinged teenagers in heat 24/7 and swinging from the chandeliers, and I do believe that… Read more »

Nick and Norah Charles? Love it, Shay. I love Dr Kevin Collins and the actor who plays him is amazing. Love Laura and I love Kevin–here are two good people who are actually worthy of each other. I remember way back in the day when he played his evil, psychotic twin brother, Dr Ryan Collins. In fact, viewers were introduced to Ryan first when he became obsessed with Felicia. I cannot recall the circumstances, but Ryan found a note from Mac which was meant for Felicia. Ryan found the note before Felicia did and promptly put it in his mouth… Read more »

@su0000….I think you have Kevin and Laura mixed up with another so-called “mature” couple who shall remain nameless….they’re the ones who are all about the bedroom scenes! Hopefully, this lovely new pairing will have a lot more on their plate than just constant, unabated nookie!!!!

Hi Shay, if I can put my two cents in here. You know how much I love[d] Luke! I sided with Tony Geary when he chastised the L&L lovers who wanted them back together and to ride off into the fog. Its over and HAS been over for some time. He has slept with countless women. Laura, we dont know about her sex life but today is a new day for her and like you said, for them to portray an ADULT relationship. Romance anyone? Here is something we know for a fact.

Hey again, Fanny. Cue-Q…great play on words and very appropro. I was actually thrilled when Michael got ELQ the first round because it deepened his ties to the Q’s and was a punch to the gut to Sonny and Carly as he rejected all things Corinthos. Now that he’s done an about-face and barely mentions AJ, I’m less than thrilled he got it back…UNLESS it deepens his ties to the Q’s again. Lol, I think Tracy might be a weepy mess for a while. We shall see…

Shay

@Fanny….Okay, I’ll go there….AND Julian and Alexis! (You know it’s true….they’ll do it anytime, anywhere…..) I’ve been expecting an “al fresco” scene of them engaging in “afternoon delight” ala the bushes, what with all the outdoor film shots GH has suddenly embraced (with limited success, in my opinion. I have yet to see the point, other than for variety’s sake. It’s not as if the show went on location to a pivotal venue or anything special like that….)

Fanny
Guest
Fanny

@Shay….how right You R on the unimpressive outdoor scenes.
Including the makeshift Ecuadorian location… Looked more like
the back lot of the studio. As for Alexis deciding to defend Carlos…
All that’s going to get her is a conjugal visit with her husband Julian
behind bars, might not be such a “delight in the afternoon” after all..

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

Shay, I think that Julian and Alexis are in for a cold shower so to speak! Julian is going to get shot and will fight for his life probably by May? Fear not though, when he turns the corner BUT is under strict restrictions that NO one is allowed to visit him in the hospital, Alexis will fit herself with a sexy nurses outfit and sneak in and check his blood pressure and his pulse. Whoaaaaaaaaaa! Ohhhhhhhhhh! Yeahhhhhhhh!

Shay
Guest
Shay

You know what would be even better, Timmm? If it were Olivia in that nurse’s uniform! Hah! (Or Heather, if you want some comic relief….it’s about time Ms. Webber makes another nuthouse break for Port Charles! Where has she been and WHAT has she been up to all these months offscreen?????)

Shay
Guest
Shay

@Fanny….I do so hear you on those remote shoots! It was quite one thing for Maxie and Nathan to have their romantic little picnic in the great outdoors….but to keep placing all those insignificant scenes in the same vicinity was a bit much. Especially the one with Ava and Julian meeting in the “woods.” I was waiting for the camera to start lurching and shaking about like that of “The Blair Witch Project!”

Shay
Guest
Shay

Oh, and as far as Alexis getting any sort of conjugal visit, Fanny? The only bars she should be seeing are those in her own cell for being complicit in the cover-up of Julian’s role in Duke’s death. Her complete disregard for the law because she doesn’t want to lose her bedmate is a total abuse of the system….and the fact that she’s so willingly representing a cold-blooded mad-dog killer like Carlos in the process of saving her sweetie’s guilty-as-sin behind makes it even worse.

I am loving the Q’s getting their company back. I would love to see Jane nominated. I was sad for Tracy for not being able to have any shares of ELQ with this new change though. I think after every thing she has gone through and after everything she has done to try to get the company back, she deserves some shares. I would like to see her have some say in how the business is run also. I would like to see her and Michael work as a team in running the company. It would also make for some… Read more »

I’m no expert on The Actor’s Studio (great show no longer airing new episodes), but when I watch Maurice/Sonny and Jeffrey/Carlos together in their scenes at the church they seem to have the same type of acting style from this school…intense.

Yes, Timmm!….I’ve commented before on that very notion regarding GH’s schizophrenic nature…..one minute it’s a traditional soap, the next, it has a gritty, urban vibe, and then it’s goes all melodramatic ala telenovela, depending upon which characters are being presented at the time.. I’m really not into the use of combined styles, myself…..I would prefer a return to the tried and true formula of romance and adventure via “Love in the Afternoon.”

There is no way Michael should be in charge of ELQ after forgiving Sonny for murdering his biological father AJ Quartermaine who was also Jason’s half-brother, Monica’s son, and Tracy’s nephew.

With judgement skills like that it is only a matter of time before he hires Rachel Berlin (daughter of Raymond Berlin, master of the off-camera Ponzi scheme) or Claudette (the off-camera green card cravin’ French-Canadian ex-wife of Nathan)…

Harry
Guest
Harry

Alan, I do so agree with you. I bristled when Michael assured Sonny that he would never forgo the Corrinthos name.
Does any one even remember that Sonny killed AJ in cold blood? Is Jason ever going to find out?
While Sonny self righteously seeks vengeance for the death of Duke, does it ever occur to that gun toting, Missing Link with impulse control issues that NO ONE has ever attained vengeance and justice for his killing AJ?

Shay

How well put, Harry…and Alan, too!!! Mikey is one of the most unevolved characters currently on the GH canvas….he’s been Mr. Nice Guy then a full-on hot-headed, revenge-fueled petulant punk and now he’s returned to his former jolly self as if nothing out-of-the-ordinary had transpired in these past few years….it’s just business as usual, and he’s right back to happily straddling those two worlds in which he’s always found himself….enjoying the privileges of both, and having the qualifications to lead no entity, legitimate or otherwise. If any character needs a huge overhaul, it’s this one, and that notion also extends… Read more »

Harry, I paid my respects to the ladies who are currently writing BUT there are holes and I wonder if the will get filled. Michael should NEVER forgive Sonny for killing his FATHER!

Yes, we heard Nina’s name endlessly before she made an appearance. However, we knew, through the grapevine, Stafford was definitely coming. I knew instantly by the white glives in Nathan’s tux, that some girl eould eventually materialize.

Alan/Harry…I think you’re right about Michael’s choice of name as well as giving AJ/Avery back to Sonny. He could at least have gone with Quartermaine-Corrinthos for his last name. But at least he chose ELQ over Sonny’s “business.” So I will give Michael a little rope…he’s still growing up….and hope for the best because I want the Q’s to become relevant again. And you know Ned and Tracy will somehow get involved and “help” him.

Timmm
Guest

Rose, Michael has David Thomitis! from Y&R. A good actor who played Billy and then he came back to the role years later when Billy Miller left and he was lost BECAUSE he looks 13 and he is 30ish but NOTHING he said especially in scenes with Eric Braeden was believable! Michael Corinthos is the same. Chad is a nice guy but they need to man up Michael and he needs to be believable as a businessman or go after Sonny and put him in his place! So, in other words, its time to recast Michael.

(Although not nearly as colorfully or brilliantly as you just have….) I sincerely hope that does not portend yet another failed character of likewise epic proportions.

@Shay.
Hey, Shay,
What are the chances Raymond Berlin will also come visit? Or, is he dead?
He may show up with Claudette. Ray could have sought asylum in Canada; met Claudette and married her.

Hey, CeeCeeGirl! It sounds to me like the whole Berlin brood is going to be showing up in Port Charles quite soon. Definitely Rachel’s mum, and with all the repeated (and I do mean, REPEATED!) references to “Raymond Berlin,” it also would seem that “Shady Ray” is on the way! Needless to say, I’m not thrilled with adding more newbies simply to justify the ongoing presence of another (unnecessary) newbie….it’s just too much….however, with the showrunners’ predilection for adding new characters, we’ll probably get bros and sisses for Rachel, too. Sheesh! Who knows? Perhaps “Claudette” is une “Canadienne Cousine” ala… Read more »

Yeah, Sonny became repulsive to me after murdering AJ, and also is an unredeemable character. I’m still waiting on Monica to confront Sonny about this.

The current Quartermaines storyline–seeing Monica regularly again, Ned, Tracy, etc.–have me enjoying GH again.

Perfectly said Harry. Agree with every word!

Alan, too funny! “Rachel Berlin, dsughter of Raymond Berlin…” If one more character says that…it’s like a few weeks ago when everyone referred o Shriners Hospital for Children and repeated the same info every other sentence! Would be rather interesting ifsomehow “Rachel” somehow got a spot in ELQ

Ha Harry! That’s a great idea! I’m not sure of two things though…is Dr. Grumpy going to be on staff or was he just a stark contrast to gentle Dr. Munro. And Edward was a lot of bark but a mushball at heart…Dr. Grumpy might be all mean all the time.

We all love our legacy characters BUT I am all for casting the Berlin family. Whether you like her or not, Hayden is knee deep into a big story that involves Nick and the Q’s. Now that the Q’s have ELQ back, I would bring in Raymond Berlin and his wife. Raymond would be there for Hayden OR not and also he could go after ELQ. Michael cannot be at the helm though. They need a stronger leader such as Tracy or Ned.

General Hospital’s Halloween Week Promo Touts Wicked Surprises

Looks like everyone will be on edge this week as Halloween comes to Port Charles.  In the newly-released ABC promo for General Hospital, it reveals that this spooky week of episodes will be a rollercoaster ride, featuring wicked surprises, and killer costumes.

After Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) scolds Franco (Roger Howarth) for having his hand in the candy jar, Anna (Finola Hughes) or is it? … is donning a black witches hat. Jackie (Kim Delaney) is seen opening her door, juxtaposed with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) saying “trick or treat”. But, is he actually at the door of someone else?

Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) asks Ava (Maura West), “Darling, what are you holding behind your back?” That is revealed to be a knife, but is it Ava who truly has the knife?

 

Meanwhile, Jason (Steve Burton) is looking around in the dark.  Elsewhere, Peter is jumpy.  So much so that Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) utters, “Looks like you’ve seen a ghost.”

Add all that to last Friday’s episode of GH where Carly(Laura Wright) thinks she saw Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) hand come out of her grave and attack her! Is Nelle (Chloe Lanier) going to be proven to be alive? And if so, will she pop up on Halloween and scare the hell out of Carly?

Watch the promo below, then let us know what you think will happen this week on General Hospital via the comment section.
