GENERAL HOSPITAL: "My Name's Jake … What's Yours?"

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

It was a banner day for so many General Hospital fans, when a major storyline wrong was finally made right, thanks to the creative team of executive producer Frank Valentini and head scribe Ron Carlivati and his writing team.

In a twist that helps give even deeper meaning to the upcoming departure of the character of Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary) and upcoming ramifications for Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Lucky (Jonathan Jackson), and Jason (Billy Miller), little Jake Spencer (James Nigbor) was revealed to be alive and well and living on Cassadine Island with the exiled Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers)!

Since 2011, Luke has believed he killed Jake via a hit and run accident during one awful moment when he was drunk, and has been tormented every since.  But after Lucky revealed he believes Jake is alive, Luke goes to see Helena one-on-one to get the truth out of her.  Luke then learns Jake IS really alive, but viewers don’t know the specifics of what Helena told Luke of how it all came about, and how she pulled off this heinous act to make everyone believe the boy was dead.

Courtesy/ABC

It is then that we see a toy blue truck hit Luke at his feet, as little Jake Spencer is there in the room with the man that supposedly ran him down! Helena retorts, “How fitting that he hit you with his car.” While Helena and Luke have their typical and delicious repartee’, there is a twist.  Helena seems to have softened, even thanking Luke for “all of the years of passion you gave me,” and she even with her odd attraction to her nemesis, kisses him.  These were wonderful final scenes between long-time scene partners: Constance Towers and Tony Geary.

In the episode’s final moments, with just the right musical underscore to heighten the emotions for the viewing audience, Luke and little Jake come face to face …  and Jake says, “My name’s Jake … what’s yours?”  Hankie-time!

The episode also featured Laura Wright (Carly) in a touching performance in scenes with Rebecca Herbst, while Carly waited to see if her daughter Josslyn would remain cancer free on the anniversary of when she received little Jake’s kidney that saved her life.  The two mothers discuss the loss Liz must feel, as she relates she still thinks about her son every day and tries to keep his memory alive.  Later after running tests,  Silas (Michael Easton) comes in with great news for Carly.  Josslyn’s reports are all good, and since Joss has been cancer-free for five years, it’s the best news she could get! Carly is thankful to Elizabeth, and overwhelmed.

It was very surprising to see how this story came together, and will be even more interesting to see how this is all explained, but with little Jake back on the canvas, this story has legs for some time to come, and it takes a horrible moment in Luke’s life and gives his tattered soul some salvation.  And how special it was to see James Nigbor again several years older!

So, what did you think of Thursday’s General Hospital?  Excited to see little Jake back on the canvas?  What do you think will happen next, or should happen next?  Luke’s on-screen farewell tour has certainly brought with it this special moment.   Now, share your thoughts and comments below.   But first check out the the final moments of the episode when little Jake meets Luke!

So, another one of Edward’s great grandkids is alive. This surely changes the crazy, ridiculous ownership situation at ELQ

Wish there was more time and story with Luke and Helena. Hope this isn’t also the end of Helena on GH. Love Constance Towers and what she’s done with the role of head matriarch of the Cassidine’s over the years. Wish writers would un-neuter Silas and Patrick. They just walk into and out of scenes. I’m ambivalent about whether they introduced little Jake as alive. There’s already enough kids around who, except for Emma, never seem to spend much time with their parents on screen. Or are precocious and spoiled.

Rose i for one enjoy the story of kids and creative writers who use them to their potential. What I don’t like is seeing a good child actor aged out of a part for story reasons. Watching Jessica grow up played by the same actress on OLTL..as well as Starr..Cassie on Y&R..kids are what propel soaps forward all the time..what if Phillip Spaulding or Rick Bauer was never born? What if Sammi and Bell and Eric were never conceived..kids bring lasting continuity and newer viewers and better story to a show as they age..as for Helena..she has run her course… Read more »

Don’t mind the kids if there were story-lines with them interacting with each other and their parents more. And not acting like teen agers before their time. Right now we don’t see much of any of them, especially Liz’ and Carly’s kids. I do agree about maybe it’s time to let Helena go into the sunset, figuratly, with Luke. Can’t see them without the other. Just don’t want her to go. And”yes” I do dip into GH, etc on youtube once in a while. There are wonderful memories there.

So please explain the events of Jake’s reveal? Frank Smith wants to kill Luke and Laura. He supposedly kidnaps Lucky and Ethan. Before he dies, he tells Luke that Lucky was “in on it.” Luke asks Lucky what that means. Lucky says it’s complicated, he had too, because of Jake. Skip three episodes later, Luke is on Cassadine Island because Helena must have something to do with it? Why? How did we get from Frank Smith to Helena? If Frank wasn’t in the mix, I can see Helena being a suspect, but why would Luke connect the dots to Helena… Read more »

Great question Matilda. While I’m happy that Jake’s death is being re-told (that was a HUGE mistake on the Guza/Phelps era), I’m so lost. I feel like i’ve missed so much, but I haven’t missed anything. What lazy story-telling.

Let’s not even address the fact that Josslyn is walking around with someone’s kidney and if Jake was brain dead was he was more than likely saved by Robin and if so was she even aware she was saving him? Was Nicolas even aware of all of this? Considering his dark side kicking in would he keep this from Liz like the Jason secret? There are just too many unanswered questions and I… Read more »

It was beautiful. I’ve been hoping that they would bring Baby Jake back for years but didn’t believe it would actually happen. What a wonderful gift to the fans. Carly & Elizabeth scenes were very emotionally poignant. Old nemesis who have developed into friends. There’s an honesty about their relationship that only their years of rivalry can afford. Luke & Helena’s scenes were wonderful. We all know we’re bidding farewell to a great acting partnership but they lost nothing in their scenes today. The Luke & Helena antagonism was sparking under the surface but seems to have come to a… Read more »

What a great episode of GH! I’m so happy that Jake is alive. His death was awful, but I always thought Guza left enough holes in that story so that when the time was right, he could be brought back.

I love that James Nigbor is playing Jake still. Just makes it extra special. I’m so happy that Elizabeth finally has her son back, and I really hope that Jason can finally have a chance to be a part of Jake’s life.

Great episode today! Jake’s death nearly killed me. I didn’t think I could ever care for a fictional character that much. Glad they’re righting this wrong.

My only hope going forward is that Elizabeth, you know, Jake’s mother gets a prominent viewpoint this time around. I remember how glaring her absence was following Jake’s death – all the while Lucky, Luke, Jason were HEAVILY featured. And I already know Rebecca Herbst will kill it!

I loved today’s episode! Having Jakey back is like a dream come true. I also thought there were so many holes in the original s/l, that could easily be explained away. He is a GH Legacy child & should never have been killed off in the first place. But, that was a different regime. I can’t wait to see him be reunited with his mother. Rebecca Herbst has been hitting it out of the ballpark with her acting talent and finally being front & center in a great s/l. Becky is SO deserving of this! She goes toe-to-toe with Billy… Read more »

Absolutely loved it. Kudos to FV, RC and company for righting a terrible wrong perpetrated by the Phelps/Guza regime. I haven’t been a huge fan of some of the things that have been going on with GH lately, but this is a great twist. The little boy James Nigbor that plays Jake is a real cutie, so it was nice to see him back. This brings on all kinds of intriguing storyline possibilities. It will be interesting to see how they explain it. The fall out is going to rock Port Charles. I know some people will complain about yet… Read more »

SO glad Jake is alive. I can’t wait to find out the back story. Tony Geary was really great today–and I’m not usually that big a fan.

I thought the whole show was wonderful today–all week actually. It will be interesting to see if seeing Jake stirs any memories in Jake/Jason or if it drives Liz to tell him the truth.

There’s really compelling storytelling going on right now, we don’t need to perpetuate the lie.

Constance Towers is 82 years young, stunning and regally elegant…
Her poise and punch (to the gut) left me wanting more. Personally
thrilled TPTB got James to reprise his role as little Jake, it wouldn’t
have felt REAL without that beautiful little boy. Lucky will be bringing
little Jake home to Elizabeth today… Get the Kleenex !!!
Finally REDEMPTION for Luke……

I’m thrilled that GH has righted the wrong of killing Jake. It never made much sense to me to kill off A child with so much legacy blood. He is A Hardy-Webber/Quartermaine/Spencer, the future storylines abound. Emma & Joss fighting over Jake in a redo of Carly/Robin/Jason. Come on! The killing before certainly seemed to be driven by an agenda of the former regime to rid GH of anything connecting Jason & Elizabeth. It was right around the time they fired RH, if I’m not mistaken. And Guza even said in an interview that Jake had to die so that… Read more »

I do not think it is going to be a dream isn’t this the same little boy who played him originally. Mary I always thought Guza left tons of holes in that story.

I hate that look he looks like a homeless person.

It looks like you’re right– it’s not going to be a dream or alternative reality, which is too bad because in my opinion it would have given them a way to fix a lot things in story line in the last year. Yes it is the same little guy playing little Jake, which is good because if they are going to do this, at least using the same child actor makes sense. And it is rather lame that Lucky, who loves this kid so much finds him and then leaves again, but this is the way it is being written… Read more »

So excited to see little Jake! Best return of the year so far! This will give “Lake” fans hope that, even when the you-know-what hits the fan, Jake will find his way back to Elizabeth and their son. That’s what we needed. This lie between them, and the eventuality of their breakup, is one of the things that has hurt ratings, IMO. They had such a beautiful love story. “I’ve memorized your entire face.” “You’re the one whose kisses I remember.” That kind of romantic “slop” is what we ladies want to see! Not Jasam/Liason war.

For the first time in so many years, this show has managed to completely surprise me!!! Little Jake’s death caused me to turn this show off for quite some time. It was a horrible mistake and I am thrilled that Ron Carlivati and his team have decided to right that wrong. And how amazing is it that they brought back the same little boy to play Jake? Little Jake has ties to GH’s legacy families and will provide story for years to come! I really enjoyed yesterday’s show and am looking forward to seeing the rest of this play out.

Just another ploy to help Liz keep Jason. He didn’t stay with her when he found out about Jake’s birth so I don’t think it will have any other affect this time except one of his children is alive instead of dead (It is pretty creepy when they kill off a child, donate their kidney and then bring that child back from the dead. Does the child only have one kidney or did another child die, donate their kidney and is buried?) Liz is the most wishy washy character on daytime.

Jake being killed was agenda to prop the lowest rated pairing in GH history. Liz is again doing that unfortunately, but at least she’ll have her baby back. Jason will still be the deadbeat douche he was before, but again, Liz has her boys so that’s all that matters. It just sucks that she must continually be bussed for JaSuck

FINALLY, a story that has meaning and ties up big question marks! They seem to be smoothing Luke’s edges off as he departs. I still think he will “Die.” I hope they have a good explanation about Jake’s “Death” and whose kidney is inside Joss? I loved the symbolism of the monster truck hitting Luke in the foot. THAT was a brilliant idea.

I’ve thought a lot about this, and I have to say it’s actually a pretty brilliant twist, and not just for the shock value, or to right a wrong from the past regime. One: This elevates the story beyond a vanity piece exploring all the foes of Luke’s past for his exit. It did a bit sloppily hop around from Jennifer Smith (who had a pretty weak and sick motivation) to Frank Smith (Oops! Not so dead… until now!) to Helena Cassadine (who needed to be featured in the wrap up somehow). But while it was NICE to see Luke… Read more »

#4. Is where this is all snowballing…. Liz/Jake or Sam/Daniel. what better way… to get Billy Miller BACK! with a vengeance …. FRONTBURNER… ala his emmy winning performances of Y&R on General Hospital for such a strong enigmatic charismatic… endearing “best” actor to grace our screens, again ! (finally) and yes it’s at the expense of rewriting history… and bringing a character back from the dead )… dang! he was sorely missed after he left Y&R… if this is what it takes to storm front… “Jason” Liz, Nikolas, Hayden, and all the rest of the cast… who are fully supporting…… Read more »

When did luke feel remorse exactly,when he was going around town saying that killing Jake was liberating, or when he continued to drink? They judt didn’t want Luke leaving being a rapist,deadbeat dad,drunk ,cheater,and baby killer. They at least could fix the child killer part.
I can’t wait for Liz to her HER baby back,Rebecca Herbst is gonna kill it. I just hope this is the catalyst for ending the completely OOC lie.

I am so happy they have James back, he looks so much like Steve Burton and he’s adorable.

I’m thrilled that young Jake has been brought back. I’ve wanted to see him brought back for a long time. He’s a strong legacy character with Hardy-Webber and Quartermaine roots and brings numerous storyline possibilities with his presence. I was shocked when they killed him off because there was so much potential for future stories. It was a bad decision back then and I’m so happy that Ron Carlivati and Frank Valentini had the wisdom to bring him back. It’s terrific that James Nigbor is back to reprise the role. It makes the return of Jake all the more emotional.… Read more »

YES! I’m happy Jake is back. I hated that s/l so much I couldn’t really watch GH much at all until Jakeson appeared. It was a convoluted s/l of how it all happened and maybe was told off screen. I’m a huge CT fan she makes Helena the best evil of all. I’m not a Luke Fan–sorry I didn’t care about his journey but was glad to see GF back back. So TY to TPTB for bringing him back. Jake ‘fake’ died in 2011–4 yrs ago Silas but the scenes w/ Elizabeth and Carly were great. I just want Jake… Read more »

So Liz is rewarded with little Jake while she’s lying to Sam, Danny, Carly, Michael, Sonny, Patrick, etc. Total BS. This came out of the HW’s butt because ratings are in the tank and they are desperate.

Luke n ever had any demons on killing a child. Am I watching a different show ? A child dies and loses a kidney. It wasn’t Jake so what luke was never sorry, still drank like a lush and so it wasn’t Jake .great for his parents all three of them, but no redemption for the drunken lush. goodbye Luke take Helena with you. Liz will be happy but, and I do like Becky and LIz she is still doing the same as Helena keeping a family from Jake adult. Danny is also his son, and has a right to… Read more »

Yes, there are lots of holes in this story. IMO every story RC writes is full of holes and either drags too long or is on speed and makes no sense. However, JAKE IS ALIVE and that is all that matters. Well, that and the fact that Becky Herbst is giving the most heartwrenching performances since her rape story, starting with the Nurses Ball (Which IMO was just awful except for Liz & Nikolas) and continuing through today’s scenes. She had me sobbing over her misery. And Liz is in misery right now. As a Liz fan, I understand that… Read more »

very interesting to see how they will explain Jake dying in the hospital and having a kidney removed, post mortum for Josselyn… and no wait must have been a look alike body on that table cuz he’s actually alive?

it’s more plausible when they die alone or just assumed dead. But would be nice to know Luke didn’t kill the kid afterall.

I just watched early episodes of Liz’s son Jake’s return…I find it rather implausible…In my opinion, GH has made a huge mistake in that storyline. They left us hanging by not addressing how this could possibly happen. It claims Helena had Jake kidnapped, how was this done,didn’t anyone question were Jake was? Patrick and Robin operated on Jake unsuccessfully…he was brain dead, so how could he have survived? The kidney that Josslyn received, who did it come from ? Jake’s parents were convinced to allow his kidney to be donated to Josslyn(but there was no scar on him) Was Patrick… Read more »

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.
