GENERAL HOSPITAL: Jason Remembers The Names "Elizabeth" & "Jake"! Should Liason Fans Be Hopeful?

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, Billy Miler as the new Jason Morgan uttered his first words as a member of the cast on-screen!  For awhile, Billy AKA nuJason has been lying in a hospital bed bandaged up. In story, Jason is recovering from serious injuries thanks to to Ava (Maura West) running him over with her “getaway” car! All we have seen for the most part are Miller’s eyes thus far since his debut and a hand! And it has been Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), his former flame and the mother of his deceased son Jake, who has been the main person and nurse attending to him.  Clearly, Elizabeth feels and has revealed to others that she feels a strong pull to her patient, “John Doe”.

And that pull just got stronger when Jason, who is clearly suffering from either short term or long term amnesia, or shock at this point, doesn’t remember his own name.  But he does hear and remember some voices in his head!  Jason even says the words, “Elizabeth” … and then  “Jake”!

Will Elizabeth be the one to put two and two together?  And what does this mean in terms of current or long term story?  Will Jason only remember his life up to his time with Elizabeth and Jake?  Is this a chance for long time fans of  beloved coupling Liason to see their duo get their day in the sun?  Will Jason not recall he has a wife Sam (Kelly Monaco)? And what about the fact he never knew that little Danny is his own bio-son?

Watch Jason remembering the key names in the clips below from yesterday’s GH, and then weigh-in! Do you think this is the chance in story that Liason fans have been hoping for?  Do you think its a short blip on the radar in the story? A big tease?  Or, do you think this is where GH may be heading in the near future with Jason and Elizabeth?  Comment below!

sam and silas are boring together

Well if they would just give Silas a personality they wouldn’t be! 🙂 (I’d like to see them make another go of it…Michael Easton and Kelly Monaco have good chemistry…but they need to expand his role…).

Sam would be boring with anyone. As pretty as she is, her personality is spent…lights out….a complete contrast to her attractive external being.
I would prefer it the other way around. A not-so-pretty-face, but with an ebullient personality.
Silas? With the right person, he would not be so boring.

First, I have to take credit for the “cray-cray!” Sigh…no one remembers I used that (I believe first) when addressing Shay about Sabrina. Oh well… 😉 Monica and Silas? Lemme think. Nooooooooooooooo!!!! Blech! Yikes! Yow! Nooooooo! Sooooo no. Ahem. Really? Silas has repressed passion. Silas loves and lusts for Sam…the epitome of sexuality…a vibrant, seductive, inquisitive, playful bad girl with heart of gold…wench! (sorta.) Michael Easton isn’t even fifty. Leslie Charleson is close to seventy. I’m all for age difference…but I think perhaps if a couple starts out at 30 and 50 and their love keeps them together they might… Read more »

Sam is a little less boring with Patrick. Something is wrong with Silas. He is a good actor. He needs a decent story.This is way out in left field and the only reason this even entered my mind is because Monica recently went on a date. Why not have Silas fall for Monica? I know, it is crazy but we always see younger women with older men, why not a younger man with an older women. Imagine the Q,s reaction!

CeeCee

CeeCee

It does sound crazy, Timmm. But, believe it or not I thought the same thing. I guess you and I are both cray-cray. I thought they got on well…cracking jokes and stuff. That was such a switch from the more morose demeanor Silas usually displays.

CeeCee, it is so nice to here someone other than me being cray-cray! Yeah, it went really well. I miss Alan so much but if Robin doesnt revive him, I would love to see Monica happy again. It is a strange feeling to lose someone and then think, should I never remarry and honor my husband or should I move on and date again. I suppose it is a question I would ask if I was to marry. What do you think? Is it okay to move on if all the sudden your a widow? I guess some of it… Read more »

I don’t think it has to do with age, Timmm, but with the person himself/herself. I personally can’t ever picture myself with anyone else because there has never been another man in my life. So, it is hard for me. My brain refuses to go to “What if something happens to him”…. The thought would really drive me cray-cray. Most people remarry out of love, some for security, while others for companionship. It is up to the individual, albeit some people do things they never though they would do in the future. Never say never, I guess. But, Timmm….I am… Read more »

Also, Timmm. I think love is ageless. If two people get along, fall in love, have common interests, why no be together, regardless of age.
Monica and Silas have so much in common. But would TPTB go there with Monica? They did it with Ava and Morgan, why not Silas and Monica? I’m all for it.

Liz and Jason have had many of chances the last one lasted almost 2 years of boring no acting stuff. We do not want Jason(Sams fans)after he bangs Liz!The woman a few months ago was caught all up in AJ/Nic/Ric, nothing worked our simply because there was no chemistry. Liz have been paired a number of times and she has nio chemistry with anyone.With Craptini head up Liz’ass and having Jason not remember the woman he walked from the night of his death is bullshit, and I knew Craptini was the mess it up,not only will he destroy the character… Read more »

As a big fan of Nikolas and Elizabeth I am more concerned about THEM getting their day in the sun. After all the build, two years worth for Niz, I resent it being pushed aside for this. Niz should have finally got their chance but instead they get sidelined for a been there and done that relationship. No thanks. It’s Niz or bust.

Yeah bit unless Lucky were to come back to the show, after Niz’s honeymoon, what story is here to tell? If Lucky were back at least there would be tension/drama.

I agree, I’ve been waiting for NIZ to happen for years. I’ve never seen what others see in liason, but if they were to ever get together, I guess now would be the best time since he can’t remember who he is and she is lonely. It’ll be a good way to finally fulfill the fantasy that is jason and liz.

I like this. I am happy that Jason will be with Liz. I hope he is a doctor. I want him and Monica to be real close. I dont want him with Sam. He will eventually remember her or at least have a relationship with Danny once he finds out he is his father. Sam can be with Patrick if they do not recast Robin. Ric will end up back in Alexis’s arms and Molly will be over the top! I see Julian with someone else all together. Maybe with Faith Roscoe, Julia Barrett, or Sky Q. None of these… Read more »

Yes, id rather see Julian with Skye…me and Patrick discussed this in the past…i can picture them together and it would be hot…i wanted Alexis with Kevin but if Ric returns that would be great too…i see Sam with Patrick but shes so dang boring…lol…i still believe Elizabeth Hendrickson would be the perfect recast Robin if it came to that…tired of her constant kidnapping…lol

Kevin/Ryan was a good story line to play for this actor. Kevin and Lucy, not much story there. I thought Kevin would snap when he caught Lucy and Scott together. Sam can be a bit of a snore and thats another reason I dont want her paired with Billy Miller. I love Kimberly but like I have said, if she wants to direct, fine, let Liz come in and take over the role of Robin.

I like the idea of Julian and Skye, Jim. I do believe that Ric cannot come back until Tony Geary is able to come back and we don’t know when that will be.

This Liason fan will most certainly NOT waste my hope by putting faith in these writers to a.) write a storyline for Liz and b.) reunite Liz & Jason. I am tired of being baited. Obviously, Jason and Sam is where the story will be written given that Sam and Patrick have bonded. I don’t know why but the last three headwriters have not been at all interested to write for Liz Webber in spite of the character and actress, Rebecca Herbst, being largely popular for nearly two decades on GH. The current regime has done a better job of… Read more »

Still hoping for Dr. Jason Quartimaine…great seeing Monica…i dont really see Jason’s memory coming back completely…it would be nice if it happened soon but me thinks itll drag out and on New Years Eve Jason and Liz kiss under a fireworks lit sky and then his memory returns…like that idea better than my previous one…lol

Jim, with Billy MIller’s face partially covered in bandages I was able to fixate on his voice rather than on that very handsome face. He sounds like Jonah Hill! I watched most of today’s show and thought it was actually good. Billy is just ozzing all kinds of sparkling charisma from beneath those bandages and he and Lizzy have already struck a chord of chemistry. I abhor Snarly though and Carly needs to ease off the spray tan as it is making her face orange. I love Olivia again. She’s shed that psychic-psycho histrionics, as well as Nick Tortelli (Sonny)… Read more »

I think they tried to explain Jason’s voice change when his vocal chords were damaged while he was in Creighton Clarke. Remember those days “Silent Jason’s Lower Half” and Robin were running around trying to escape? Robin said Jason’s vocal chords were damaged.

Sorry suOOOO but soaps have always been about couples and uncoupling and recoupling over and over again…lol…but your right…they can often be boring, and many dont last long…what they need are more stories that involve music boxes…ok, just kidding about the music box thingy…lol…but there should be romance, drama, crazy adventure and danger…more story…i need MORE story!!!…lol…GH is getting better and im enjoying it again!!!

Su000, this isn’t Eat, Pray, Love.
it’s a soap opera predicated upon the very idea of romance–of that first meeting, the build up, the comingling, the conflict, the climax (story-wise) and the resolution which usually means a break up.
I will take romance over mobsters blowing things up any day. I’m a lover, not a fighter.

I am not for a Liz and Jason reuniting. Been there done that and was not impressed. I know many are but I will just have to start recording the episodes so that I can speed through those scenes. Jason and Sam were “the” couple, can’t say how much sparkle Kelly and Billy have but I personally know of no one Liz has a sparkle with except Lucky and Ric. I’m sure there are others who feel the same.

This is obviously the reason they gave Jason plastic surgery…instead of just saying “the role will now be played by…” Seems like this Jason will have/develop feelings for Liz…and even if/when Sam finds out who he is she may just have already fallen for Patrick or have gone back to Silas. I can see her saying that he’s not the Jason she fell in love with…physically or emotionally…that her love for HER version of Jason will always stay with her…but this Jason is like a new person, thus clearing the way for a new romance for her….and a finally realized… Read more »

Rebecca/Elizabeth is the most beautiful woman on GH and one of the most beautiful women on daytime. Her skin is flawless…peaches ‘n cream and all that good stuff. The thing is, in soaps, everyone is always paired up with someone. And, if not, someone is always jumping in the sac with someone else without waiting a minute. Look at Sam and Patrick.

It has pained me to so often see such a lovely lass face life on the lonely…more as a rule than the exception.

I really hope that Liason will get a chance to have a relationship! I’ve been a GH fan for a long time and this couple has been my favorite of all the pairings over the years. I love their relationship as friends and as more than friends. So far I’m loving the scenes between Billy and Becky. They seem to have chemistry together and I’m hoping that it’s enough to compel RC to write for them.

I’m hoping that Liz and “jake” get a fair chance to prove their obvious chemistry, so far i like what i’m seeing with nujason having memories of liz and baby jake. Obviously Sam will be a factor but the show new regime has a chance of being more fair then the previous regime, who were more one sided and clearly favor one coupling over the other. Plus there’s other factors to consider, for example, on the liz side alone they got to address the nicholas factor, will she choose again to just stay friends with him and break his heart?… Read more »

I am over the moon that the writers have re-introduced Jason to the canvas this way. It allows Billy Miller to make the part his own immediately. I was never much of a Jason fan, but I love how Jason-as-Jake and Elizabeth have developed this special little connection. Today they were both protective of each other, and so curious about one another, that I found them utterly adorable. I know eventually the other shoe will drop, but for now I will enjoy what’s there.

I have always been a jason/sam fan and liz/lucky or liz/nik. I Love RH and KM and their characters and still get frustrated when fans fight over them especially since I never saw why anyone would ever want Jason Morgan the hitman with liz, the delicate and oftentimes confused, angel. That being said, with Steve gone and with the new Jason having no memory of his life, the paths to take this character are endless and I’ve found myself curious to see what a Liz/Jason pairing would look like.

These are some great points, Wlin. I am readying myself for this to be very temporary for Elizabeth, because I do believe these writers believe Jason and Sam should be together. I too think it’s more than time for a long-term pairing for Elizabeth. Part of me believes once Jake is revealed to be Jason, and Nikolas realizes how Britt manipulated him once again, Elizabeth and Nikolas will circle back to one another.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

Photo: ABC

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Courtesy/ABC

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

Courtesy/ABC

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Photo: ABC

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Courtesy/ABC
