GENERAL HOSPITAL PROMO: Someone is About To Come Face To Face With Their Past!

Courtesy/ABC

In this week’s promo for ABC’s General Hospital, you watch and hear “Patient Six” (Steve Burton) say, “Please help me get home to my family.”

And as viewers saw on last Friday’s Cliffhanger, the guy seems to have lost five years of his life, not realizing it was the year 2017!

In this teaser for the upcoming action, it appears that if Burton is the true Jason, when Billy Miller (Jason) and Kelly Monaco (Sam) take a trip, will it hold more than they bargained for?

Meanwhile, what will happen when the key people in “Patient Six’s” life realize he is alive ? Who will they believe is the real Jason?  Those people include: Carly (Laura Wright), Sam (Kelly Monaco), Sonny (Maurice Benard), Monica (Leslie Charleson), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst).

Watch the promo after the jump, and then weigh-in how you think the next beat of the story will go down, and who do you think will actually be the first person from “Patient Six'” loved ones an friends to see him first? Let us know in the comment section below.

Drew may be a clone of the real Jason, and or vice versa.
I think when the two Jasons face each other, there may be an explosion of a different kind. Each of their memories will blend into one another’s.

Sam and Drew are going out of town and Jason is coming into town?

It looks like Jason is opening up the door to Alex’s house?

GH traditionally heats up a week BEFORE sweeps and then lulls us to sleep!

Lets hope this turns out much better than FLUKE!

don’t say “Fluke” three times, it will unleash more horror!

We are truly blessed by our brilliant head writer Shelly Altman. She is such a gem for GH.

The door Jason is coming thru looks like Sonny’s patio door. I guarantee his first scene will be with MB his true love!!

i can see them running into each other’s arms in slow motion…lol

I fear you are correct, k/kay!….This is the seminal moment they (but not we….) have been waiting for since the day “Stonecold” was unceremoniously dumped from Pier 52…Sonny and Jason together again…at long last!!!!! (Please pass the sick bag….)

@Shay. I hear Burton & Jackson’s restaurant is closed supposedly moving to a different location?

How about to Port Charles, k/kay? The town could use a new eatery, not to mention, Lucky’s return! Oh, yeah!

Jimh

Well, i doubt it will be Monica…

Shay

You are probably correct, jimh, but I wish it would be Monica! After all the heartache she has suffered by the loss of her “boys,” it would be a beautiful moment were she to be the first to discover that Jason has returned home to Port Charles and that she actually has twin stepsons to keep the Q dynasty alive!

Timmm

She will probably find out OFF camera! This show doesnt know how to pull ANY heartstrings!

Would be nice but not with the current writing team…probably will be Sonny..Jason’s one and only love…however, it would be a nice surprise if i am wrong and it is Monica???

So far the two Jasons has been a sleeper..
Steve was brought back in a whimper.
He should have brought in with a BANG!

The story should have been high power from day one not as weak as it is.
it seems most are worn out waiting for something intense and intriguing to happen.

The huge build-up and what was delivered was a fail- snoor..
It was dragged out way too long and now many just don’t care who is whom; the thrill is gone. just worn out.

If this same story had been written under Guza we’d be on the edge of our sets !!
We would be excited for the ‘what’s next’ and we’d be watching with anticipation.!
Imaging what Guza, and others, what they would have and could have given us with this story and imaging that makes me sad to see how horribly dry and stale GH has become.

IF….. I F – if

GH has any smart left

they will let this be Leslie Charleson MOMENT in the spotlight… her marquee

Monica Quartermaine damned heart – break – spills

tears at her heart

with all the other quartermaine “gone” why shouldn’t GH capitalize on this and

go the mother / son route

doing this… WITHOUT sonny / carly / sam and even Liz knowing whats going on

hash this out

ALL OUT

enter Liz , as she goes and sees Monica at her manse

Satan

Looks like he’s walking in the patio door of Sonny’s house when he calls out “anybody home”. That probably means that either Sonny or Carly will be the first to see him. Michael might possibly be there. I doubt they will leave the first Port Charles sighting to a secondary character like Max or Milo.

I don’t follow Twitter, but apparently Steve has already mentioned working with Laura Wright again, so that would be a point in Carly’s favor.

Patrick
Patrick

THE – thing, that bothers me…. if Monica gets … her son back.. plus a twin… plus an older son, in Franco . WITH Ned@the manse.

won’t this be too much…. testosterone ? for me ? I don’t have enough endorphin

I NEED Skye Quartermaine to help me

GH – balance the Q. and hire Robin Christopher. let’s make this cat on a hot tin roof

that way… you can fire all the Corinthos clan and let’s watch them rot

whilst the cast as it were can find life

I don’t think he’s going to be revealed as Jason yet. That would be too easy

It looks like the door 2 Sonny’s house, I think it will b Carly he sees first, this is a great story so far, the writers are doing a really good job

Celia

I agree…I am enjoying SB’s stealth and story, so far. The downside is my ‘spending’ more time with St. Sonny and his sidekick, Carly.

Steve

Since Monica already had her “not-dead son walking through the door” moment with AJ, I doubt these writers will go there. It’s not Alexis’ house, as she was still in the lake house when SB/Jason left, so unfortunately it has to be Sonny.

I’m more interested in finding out what happened to Drew when Betsy said he supposedly died. I don’t think Helena had the forward thinking to take a 3-year old knowing he’d have killer instincts. Either Susan didn’t die at the hands of Crane Tolliver or perhaps she, too, had a twin, either of whom came to claim Drew from Betsy. Gail Ramsey hasn’t acted in 25 years, but it would be great to see her again as either Susan or her unbeknownst twin.

Shay
Shay

Could it be the balcony entrance at Sam’s? Makes more sense that Jason would wish to return to his wife and son first….(Yes, Steve, even before he goes to genuflect before the altar of St. Sonny!) As for “what happened to Drew?” Maybe Heather found someone else wishing to buy a little boy, so she absconded with the child in order to receive an additional payout. I never underestimate Ms. Webber’s greed and ingenuity when it comes to pulling off such capers! All I know is we need another Heather appearance to shed some light on this ongoing mystery! Paging Robin Mattson!

The split second Steve Burton rolled into the water that day I knew he’d be back. This is all very Todd Manning-esque.

“at the end of the day”

TPTB really care about fan tune in and neilson ratings

expletive

i’m not so far off track to insinuate the gall that muddles this show.. with overload on Sonny and Carly.. the dullard

if shelley and frank are on “THEIR” course

Steve Burton will run in to :

Maurice Benard.. yeah i’ll say the actors name who stinks .. as Sonny

will it be him ? who is an affront , to keep .. the focus of GH, his

and MB and GH trot out Laura Wright.. because she’s loud enough to bring their show an emmy ? are they that dingbat cray cray to sting the audience that much more ?

Carly is not meaningful enough to carry any more.

I’ve posted above.. that it had better be…. Monica and then Liz.. who will reel all the emotion

I’ll give GH 1 year before there is an R.I.P. next to it. Anna and Finn are a bore. It ‘s as though the writers don’t know what to do with them, and it shows. Lucas and Brad where “dropped like a hot potato !” Alexi, Ashley, and Watkins are being let go. Now, Jessica Tuck, another new face is coming to town. Pristina is the best story that GH had going. So what, Parker is NOT Kristina’s professor. They are 2 consenting adults. There is nothing wrong with this pairing. They have amazing chemistry. I know chemistry, I have been married to my amazing husband for 32 years !! However, It seems to be acceptable for a mob princess to have sex with a priest !! So sick of Carly and Sonny. Their relationship has been re-hashed so much, I can’t remeber if they are married. Valentin and Nina are nauseating. Now, Steve Burton has decided to honor us with his presence and TPTB are bowing to his every move !! Hopefully, Kristina and Parker will relocate to Genoa City !! Y & R knows how to write a love story.

Steve

I agree that Anna and Finn lack chemistry. Finola’s an excellent actress, but she seems to playing down in this storyline.

While it was a mistake to bump Watkins off contract, it appears he’s staying on recurring for a while. Ainsworth booked other tv/movie work, so she was not let go. Hopefully her career takes off, but she can always return. Without Kristina, there’s no need for Parker.

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

TODAY: General Hospital Rebroadcasts Masterful 52nd Anniversary Episode

Fans are in for a treat today (Friday, May 22nd) when ABC’s General Hospital airs an encore presentation of one of the finest hours of soap opera in the history of the genre, with its 52nd anniversary episode from April 1, 2015.

In the episode, viewers finally learned what turned Luke (Tony Geary) into Fluke, which has been the on-going story for months; but it all lead up to the shocking reveal, when Luke revisited his past in his broken down childhood home and the demons that haunted him.

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
