GENERAL HOSPITAL: Monaco, Thompson, Miller & Herbst Play Out The Jason Reveal!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On Tuesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, the beginning of the fallout of the Jason (Billy Miller) reveal began to play out as two couples lives and relationships will be forever shaken.  But who will end up with whom in the end?

Kelly Monaco (Sam) and Jason Thompson (Patrick) delivered top notch performances as the lovebirds struggled with what do now with the information, and the reality that Sam’s husband, Jason is indeed alive and has been in Port Charles for the paat year or more as  Jake Doe.

Patrick tries to tell Sam he experienced a very similar situation when Robin (Kimberly McCullough), who was believed-to-be-dead, returned during his wedding to Sabrina (Teresa Castillo).  Patrick related to Sam that sometimes it’s difficult to go back in time, people change.  That statement by Patrick also was noted on social media by fans of the series, who felt that his remark did not ring true for long time GH viewers, and Scrubs fans.

Meanwhile, Billy Miller and Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth) delivered another complex and well-performed scene on the bridge, where Elizabeth wants Jason to still marry her.  She is also hiding the fact she has known for month’s his true identity! He tells her he has to figure out who Jason Morgan is since he has no recollection of his former life, and since he has heard some not so great things about his former self.  Because of that,  he doesn’t feel right marrying Liz at this time.  He still tells Liz he loves her, and does go home with her.

Sam and Patrick also go home from the church with each other, but when Patrick gets ready for bed, Sam is not there.  Instead, she delivered Jason’s motorcycle to him at Elizabeth’s, telling her husband that she has been keeping it for him all of this time.   But painfully for Sam, it doesn’t appear to jog any memory.

So, what have you thought of the performances thus far in the Jason reveal and fallout of : Kelly Monaco, Jason Thompson, Billy Miller and Rebecca Herbst?  Has the reveal been solid drama, or anti-climatic for you?  Do you think the journey of the story long term is that Sam and Jason will fall in love all over again?  Will this reveal begin to usher Patrick off the canvas, since Jason Thompson is soon exiting the series, and Kimberly McCullough is back for a return?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I loved all the performances by Becky, kelly, Billy and jason. What I didn’t like is what he said about robin, that going back to her was a huge mistake. I hope that when robin returns, and Patrick realizes that robin has been kidnapped this entire time, I hope he apologizes. Once again Patrick proved his hate towards Jason. Liz is completely out of her delusional min, kudos to Becky as she has given a brilliant performance these past few months. The scene where sam takes Jason’s bike made me cry, but at least sam has class, unlike liz.

I agree. The first to play this out should definitely be Sam, Jason, Patrick, and Elizabeth (hope she gets what’s coming to her soon), and then spread across the canvas with Monica and the family being next. I do hope they bring Monica into scenes with him before Sonny.

What would truly be great is when Monica finds out Liz knew he was Jason she takes her side because no one was a bigger manipulator to get what she wanted then Monica. Monica lied about AJ’s parentage to keep Rick Webber cheated on Liz’s father with Rick Webber to not take advantage of the history is criminal. I mean it is sitting right there to be played out Monica has always hated Carly for what she did to both her boys why would she side with that loud mouth and have him be a hit man again.

@CeeCee The first comment was sarcasm that they have not used a great actress in forever LC/Monica is a good actress she just needs the material. The writers need to research the history of her character and why would Monica want Jason to be around Sonny & Carly again? I am simply giving another side to the story that is Jason was going to be a Doctor the apple of their eye he gets brain damage and he becomes a thug. If you had a chance at getting your son back and not having him be a murdering thug would… Read more »

The reason I said ‘say what’, Kay, is because I always get confused when I see all these unfamiliar names, such as Rick Webber? I thought Monica was married to Alan. Are you saying she had an affair with this Rick guy? Then Jim said there is a Jeff Webber? Wow…. I am too lazy to read up on these people…lol
Is Liz Rick’s daughter? Wow!

Jeff Webber who Monica was married to when she first came on I think is Liz’s dad and we never have really known who her Mom was. When Monica later married Alan I think she was still in love with Rick the brother who married Lesley/Laura’s Mom long story and that is how Laura got the Webber name just all I was saying was that it would be good if they delve into some history of the show. My understanding however is that Jake saw Sonny and was not thrilled that he was being gushed over. Billy Miller has too… Read more »

Haven’t tuned in to #GH for a while. Tuned in for the reveal. Saw nothing to make me stay. Just not dramatic, just not engaging. Not much has changed on GH. The same formula, big story/reveal, given limited time, scenes that aren’t long enough and held for the end of each segment and jumbled up with the other stories. After a year, it deserved more time and attention, the Anna/Paul scenes and Sonny/Ava stuff were a distraction. You don’t have an entire episode, full hour, devoted to the reveal, but you make it more prominent and you build enough continuity… Read more »

Someone please tell me why Monica would be at Jake & Liz’s wedding? Why do I keep seeing this? Am I missing something? It makes no sense to me. She has no connection to Jake Doe other than tea 1 time. Why would she be at Liz’s wedding? And they said where she was anyway. She was babysitting Danny. Monica is going to find out because it’s in the spoilers. I don’t know why Sonny would be at Jake’s wedding. He hates Jake. Sonny is paralyzed. He’s been in the hospital for 2 months, because the writers are being way… Read more »

Monica would be there because she knows Elizabeth for twenty years, she was close to her family, you know the Hardy’s, and they worked at the same hospital for over a decade, she was technically her boss. Oh and Monica’s daughter was her best friend. Ever been to a wedding that had like 200 people? Is every guest extremely close to the bride or groom? Are there colleagues? Bosses? Friends of the family? Parents of your friends? Why would sonny be there? Hmm, let’s see, maybe since Carly is there and part of the wedding, her husband would be there… Read more »

Well put, Laurie. Why, indeed. There was no reason for Monica to be there, albeit she should have been the first to receive a call from Carly. Not Michael, not Sonny, not anyone except Sam. But since Sam was at the wedding, Carly, as a mother should have had the wherewithal to call Monica.

Laurie
Guest
Laurie

Thanks Matilda. I should’ve added that there wasn’t but about 12 people there at the wedding. The pews were bare, and the 3 folks Lucas threw out were extras!! I can see in a large wedding where half the cast would be there, esp since big sweeps events & shockers happen during such events. Then the writers write lame excuses to fit characters that shouldn’t be there in, like they did at Liz & Jake’s wedding w/Hayden. I think it was the fact that only a few strays were there. I do agree that was so odd to me. It… Read more »

Was very disappointed in the entire reveal. Loved that Spinelli and Carly were the key people involved … but wanted the tramp Liz (and I use this term freely since every guy she goes to bed with .. she gets pregnant – and she will again or already is pregnant – and wants every guy she can’t have – all in typical soap opera style) to be at least ASKED if she was aware of this situation… and she wasn’t. UGH… frustrating. She lied by omission, again, but did not hesitate to remind Jason of THEIR son. She is not… Read more »

Patrick looked heartbroken, deep down inside knowing this was the beginning
of the end for them…Sam’s head was reeling from what she’d just discovered….
Everyone needs to catch there breath and exhale …
The pressure is on Jason to remember his past….the Lions R at the gate &
they all want a piece of him.

I felt so bad for Patrick, BUT, he did leave poor Sabrina when Robin returned so I guess, payback is rearing its ugly face. Still — Jason Thompson and his expressions are top notch always. He will be missed! I actually quite enjoyed Sam & Patrick.

Ces…I agree. Jason Thompson is phenomenal. As I mentioned in another comment…though I hate that he’s leaving the show…and admittedly there’d be big shoes to fill…I’d rather a recast than have Patrick and Emma leave. I think the Drake family is important with or without Robin, I like their connection to Anna…and I think it’d be interesting to keep all the players in this now tangled web of love in town…

Ces
Guest

I would hate to see a recast of Dr. Drake; I’d rather he just go off into the sunset with Robin if that’s why Kim M. is coming back for. I do like their connection to Anna and she does need some connection there, I agree. Just can’t imagine anyone else playing Dr.Drake.

I agree, ces. I don’t know Robin and Patrick as a couple, but if they are both to leave, it is only right they leave together. ….especially if Patrick and Sam are over. Too bad it is the end of another era for these characters. I wish Emma would stay, though. Sweet kid. Later.

I think that Sam came to life for me. She exhibited emotions I never would have known she had. She was actually crying, with tears. I actually saw emotion, pain and disbelief wash/cross over her face. I kind of did a double-take. I was shocked, as I certainly did not expect this from a character who had been colorless until now. I saw so much sadness, regret of what could have been. And, I felt compassion as she tried so hard to be in the present with Patrick. As I have already stated on the other site, Sam looked like… Read more »

hi CeeCee.. Sam is an excellent cryer.. She sniveled and emotionally cried through her relationship with Silas.. A mountain high of Kleenex … lol Sam is empty of a personality outside of her crying and monotone existence lol Sam has always been bland.. One good cry scene (her forte) will not change the yawn of her.. 🙂 The best actress in that mess is Laura/Carly.. She is a constant/unremitting great performer, all her scenes are power, not just one crying outburst.. ‘side; And as always, the Queen /Maura/Ava bringing it home!! She never fails.

Fantastic post, Su. Very informative. Yup, I am enjoying GH right now.
I was also brought to tears with Sonny and Jason coming together. Something is going on with me. Lol. Who would have thought I would be moved by this meeting? But, I was. This was also the first time that Sonny’s acting was half-way believable. He did ok. I still do not like him, though. Lol. That scraggly, dirty-looking beard has got to go! Makes him look even more scruffy, oily and swarthy. Bye, Su.

Laura Wright is always ON! She rocks everything she does!!

Kelly Monaco did some good work finally — she does expression well at least.

Can’t say anything about Elizabeth – I really despise this character! Hope Jason never talks to her again once this is all revealed. despicable.

@ces. Hello, ces, my friend. Your take on Liz is perfect. Yes, if Jason cares about preserving his dignity, he would never want to see her again. To live in the shadow of so much deceit ……hurting so many people should be unforgivable. Miss Lizzie had no qualms; no guilt-pangs when she schemed, pursued and executed her plans all the way to the altar ( Catholic Church, at that….which, again, throws me for a loop). There are, however a few obstacles. Firstly, TPTB may want yo leave sleeping dogs lie. Secondly, if Jason does find out, he may forgive her… Read more »

@CeeCee…Sweets… What may also come into play (besides Robin’s return + the back story she & only she can provide Jason with..) is that Elizabeth has lied to Jason in the past. Seeing Nick & Elizabeth together yet AGAIN may trigger a sense of deja’ vu.. If NOT…they still don’t look kosher, more like two conniving schemers up to no good… Even HE has to see what’s right in front of his eyes, Love can’t be blind forever. Wouldn’t be the first time she’s banked on his emotions & slight confusion to get her out of a tight spot. He… Read more »

Great performances by all. Couple of things…here goes Carly again asking Jason to run to her side. I don’t care WHAT her problems are! The way she dismisses. Sam…his WIFE…and for all intents and purposes Elizabeth who at this point as far as anyone knows is as shocked as Sam… Carly thinks Jason should run to her because she needs him? Never mind that his wife just found out her husband is alive, or his fiance is heartbroken and confused (again, should appear that way because no one knows Liz knew). Anyway, pissing me off. I didn’t mind Patrick’s statement.… Read more »

Thing is-
Jake is Jake, not yet Jason. Jake is empty of Jason’s life.
Jake loves Liz .. Jake does not love Sam ..
Jake has no past, he is now Jake..

No doubt at some point in time he will recall Jason but will he emotionally from his soul revert back to Jason after living his life as Jake?
That question will not be answered until spring 2016, I betcha .. lol

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

It sounds logical, su. I think it will take that long for Jake to find Jason. But, will his essence be overwhelmingly Jake ? And, as you say, he may be too emotionally bound to Jake, and will not want to remember. Mind over matter. I wonder; was Jason Q so different from Jake Doe? As long as he will not succumb to Sonny and revert back to Jason Morgan, then all will be well.

I agree that they all gave wonderful performances, but IMO, no one played out the performance as well as Kelly Monaco and Laura Wright. Wright didn’t miss a beat when she discovered Jake was actually Jason. Then came the wedding interruptance! Much as I love Becky Herbst, it was Kelly Monaco who stole the show on this one. Who couldn’t feel her pain when Jason told he had no recollection of and no feelings about his past with Sam. I have long been a champion for Kelly Monaco, but I had forgotten just how amazing she could be until these… Read more »

I realize that this is November sweeps time. All the dramas are trying to outdo each other with huge plot devices and show off events. GH has managed to tell a great story with classy and well acted performances. Start with Billy Miller. Dear Lord that man’s acting genius knows no limits. Laura Wright has blown me away with her balance of joy/frustration/anger/happiness. She just excels every single time. Rebecca Herbst with her obsession for Jason. She has been manipulative. She has lied. She has cried. She has even tried to make others feel sorry for her and has done… Read more »

I suppose Patrick represents all the brooding, forlorn lovers immortalized in prose…..Romeo, Hamlet, Heathcliff, Oliver Mellors; to name a few. Not many get a happy ending. Poor, poor Patrick. I hope he finds happiness wherever he’s headed next.

Fanny
Guest

@CeeCee Sweets…You had me at Heathcliff….. As for Patrick he’ll reach
out to Robin she’ll return to help him through, once they resolve their issues
they’ll leave Port Charles together. Hopefully not before Robin has a chance
to explain & clarify things to Jason. She maybe the switch that turns the light
on.

Guest

Mateo…you’ve really summed GH for me, too. Add today’s reveal between Billy and Maurice to Laura, Rebecca, Kelly and Patrick’s performances. OMGoodness. Their subtle/not-so-subtle, facial expressions and their searching eyes when they looked at each other was incredibly moving. We know Billy has range, but it was especially great to see Sonny shine and show he can do more than have temper tantrums. It’s been a while. And I love Nik and Hayden.

@Fanny.
Hello, ma chere. It hadn’t even dawned on me that Robin could hold the key to Jason’s lost memories. Good one, Fanny.
And, yes, it is the only logical assumption that Robin and Patrick will leave together. Perhaps, they will be medical missionaries to third-world countries. And Emma? Let’s hope she stays behind with Anna. I would hate to lose this one-of-a-kind, sweet little girl.

Fanny
Guest
Fanny

@CeeCee..Sweet little Emma will remain in Port Charles with Anna
hence the NEW home… Obviously Robin won’t be able to answer all
unanswered questions regarding Jason…considering she doesn’t share
Helena’s penchant for CRAZY, however she can fill in some important blanks.

This entire story would have played better if Liz had been kept in the dark. Where’s the suspense when it’s a foregone conclusion that Jasam will reunite ? If Liz had not known you’d wonder who Jason would pick. Plus, throwing Liz under a bus is so played out. I do hope Jason continues to be appalled by the life he lived as a murderer. Jason Q was lost after the car accident & he became Jason Morgan. Jason Morgan needs to be lost after this accident and he becomes Jason #3. GH has way too many criminals. They aren’t… Read more »

DNA compared from criminal database. Jake has been arrested in the last year. Why then was no comparison made then. No one knew to compare him with Jason. The performances were fine.

Again, I have that uncomfortably sneaking suspicion the writers don’t know where to take this concept. Tracy, suddenly being en league with Hayden sounds extremely last minute, and contrived. Enter, Robin in captivity? Again? I had no idea. I must have missed that part. THE PERILS OF ROBIN…..all over again. Too many people involved with Jason’s tapestry of a travesty. WOW!!!!

The actors are great and the performances are solid. The story has been dragged out too long, making it all somewhat anticlimactic. HOWEVER…this could all be worth it if the writers are savvy enough to have Jake remember his identity as Jason Quartermaine and NOT Jason Morgan. This would make for EPIC soap opera as all of Jason Morgan’s sycophants would have to be kept at arm’s length by a Jason who seeks to embrace his past as an upstanding member of the community; one who cannot fathom his transformation into a cold blooded killer and mob enforcer. The drama… Read more »

I think the performances were great all around. And supposedly Liz is going to tell Monica that Jason is alive. And I’m sorry but I hope Jason stays with Liz. Of course he will remember the bad old days, but I think this is more Jason Q than M, and he will be ashamed and horrified of the life he led. A life enabled by Sam & Carly. Why should Jason go back to Sam? Cause they were married? He essentially rejected her when he wasn’t 100% certain the kid was his. (The fact they’ve had Danny running up to… Read more »

I think some viewers just wanted to see a big group reaction all at once, but I personally like the reveal is taking place slowly so I can savor the moments instead of being force to choose whose face to focus on if the news came out with everyone there at the same time. Your logic is sound it would have been totally OOC for Monica or Sonny to be there, the only thing missing is patience on some fans to wait for everything to come out at the proper time. I hope Jake will not become the old Jason.… Read more »

I have been watching GH for twenty years. I have seen the best and worst of storylines. Fantastic and horrendous acting. I’m always disappointed by the lack of appreciation for Beckys abilities as an actress. I am truly neither a Jasam or Liason fan. I loved LL2 back in the day. Sam has never been a favorite character of mine I find her extremely dull to watch, but she was fantastic in the reveal episode. But after twenty years whether a Liz fan or a Liz hater can we all just say kudos to Becky for sticking with the character… Read more »

You are 100% right on. Becky is amazing and she’s matched in abilities so well with Billy Miller. They are so expressive without having to say a word.

Elizabeth & Jason are magic–and I hope the people in charge are smart enough to see that and take advantage of it

I am aware Susan Moore is Jason’s birth mother. However, Monica considers him to her son. I am not a fan of the mob stories on GH. Thus I would love it if Jason exhibits more Jason Q qualities and Jason Morgan. I agree it would be interesting if Monica takes Liz’s side.

Lol Su…I hope not. We’ve waited long enough..but I do think they can get some great dramatic leverage as Jakeson searches his soul for his identity…and the fallout for everyone involved. Which includes Patrick. Recast!

Perhaps now Liz will finally be developed as a character again. Thanks GH writers for making her the most detested character on the show. For years she has been written as a prop for Robin/ Patrick – Jason / Sam – But now there is hope! Hope that maybe the character of Elizabeth will be recharged. If not, this fan will be disappointed…yet again. Kudos to the reveal.

I hope Elizabeth loses Jason in the next few weeks. The sooner it happens – the sooner the rehabilitation of the character should begin.

I wasn’t at all surprised by Sam’s reaction to the Jake/Jason reveal. It quickly became all about her and her eye-leaking feelings. She certainly didn’t waste much breath on what Jason must have gone through. Carly’s reaction was totally in character: Jason is her crutch, the one she feels she has deserved and therefore must have regardless. The first time one of two female dogs mention “having the truth out here” I will throw a brick through the tv screen. Neither character has even a nodding acquaintance with the truth. If Jason Morgan, Sonny’s bestest mob killer and Carly’s bestest… Read more »
