GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sam Confronts Liz About Her Feelings For "Jake"! Which Gal Do You Want To See Him Romantically Involved With?

Courtesy/CBS

Courtesy/CBS

On Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, an old feud was reignited of sorts, when Sam (Kelly Monaco) confronted Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) about if she was into and interest in the stranger “Jake” AKA Jason Morgan (Billy Miller)!

After citing how Elizabeth has had a miserable year in the romance department, first with AJ Quartermaine (Sean Kanan), then with Ric Lansing (Rick Hearst), and then with Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher), and citing Liz’s penchant for picking unsavory men, Sam asks Elizabeth how she feels about the mysterious “Jake” who she has allowed to move in with her and live under Liz’s roof?

Sam is not happy that she is on to the fact that she believes “Jake” is the one who wore the ski mask and held her at gunpoint!  Little does Sam know … that “Jake” is her believed-to-be-dead husband Jason!

Elizabeth fires back at Sam and says, “You think that I am so desperate to have a man in my life that I would do anything? To which Sam replied, “The same way you did anything to hold on to Jason?”  Ouch!  Remember when GHers, Jason was trying to find the truth about Sam’s son who had been presumed dead and Elizabeth offered to help run a DNA test to prove whether Tea’s (Florencia Lozano) son was in fact Sam’s? Elizabeth in a moment of weakness, decided to change the test results and therefore passed the wrong information to Jason in her attempt to get him all to herself and away from Sam?

Watch the showdown between Liz and Sam over “Jake” below! Then tell us, do you want Elizabeth to have a true shot at love with the guy? Or, do you hope Sam realizes “Jake” is Jason and helps him get away from Helena (Constance Towers) and reunites her family once and for all?  Comment below!

I’m dying to see Liz with Jake , but more than that I have truly bought into Sam and Patrick and would love to see where this quadrangle goes. Hope it doesn’t get dropped as so many stories and pairings seem to on GH.

Sam ofcourse! Elizabeth has no chemistry with any man besides Lucky…

Wrong. Elizabeth has chemistry with everyone. She’s a chem magnet.

That’s right! But they never give her enough screen time anymore. Why do the writers NOT like Elizabeth Webber?!

Rebecca Herbst is beautiful AND she can act. I guess she needs to start wearing low cut tops to get any scenes.

They are probably just going to rip the rug out from under us. As much chemistry as Rebecca has with Billy Miller, they do not care for Elizabeth and will most likely put him with Kelly Monaco. It’s not fair. Liz was there first. 🙂

I do not want Jake/Jason with any woman for a long time to come..
He is great as a bachelor..
I’m OK with Jason dating a variety of woman..
Why oh why is there always a need to tie a man down and stick him with a woman..

I want Jake to find out he is Jason and have time to deal with that and with Helena before getting him all tied down and involved with a woman..
I want Jason FREE !!! … geeezuz leave the guy alone!! 🙂

I think that Elizabeth and Jake are cute together. I like how Jake is being written (minus the mind control, courtesy of Helena). I think he acts cute and sweet. While neither character-Elizabeth or Sam-is my favorite female character, I do like Elizabeth with Jake. I’m really not a fan of Sam. I find her to be boring and she’s either speaking in a monotone or crying-while in her black pants, white t-shirt, and black boots. C’mon wardrobe-Kelly Monacco is a beautiful girl-dress her up once in a while! HA! (I know, her wardrobe matches her character…)

Billy Miller is the main draw in this segmgent of GH he’s been featured with Liz.. from the start… and that’s carry Sam, does, have an in, with Patrick… is she that good to feature her with another? LOL… I don’t think so… keep here where she’s at…. that love child…. Daniel.. IS let’s not go their… a waste of air time keeping it simple… it’s ALL about Billy Miller… the GH production… has to mine… all that Billy Miller brings… and Jason… remembers “every”thing… and reunites with his real family… and furthers his character back… and reality this just… Read more »

Liz wants a man who is a little evil so she can whine and change him into something he’s not. She is never happy with what she has she always wants someone else’s man or one she can’t have and she will try to get him by whatever method she can. The only man I have ever thought she was happy with was Lucky and he ran away from her too.

I like this story a lot and all three actors are wonderful in it. However, the thing that really MOVED me in Thursday’s episode was Franco & Nina. When Franco gave her the pep-talk then Alexis showed up and Nina insisted she represent Franco too – Howarth and Stafford were SPECTACULAR in these scenes. It’s the level of acting you don’t often see in film let alone soaps. Not big and over the top but small, subtle, and so damn powerful. These two are really creating something special with these characters. Kudos to the whole GH cast on a 2104… Read more »

A quote from Michelle when asked how she likes working with roger;

”We did some scenes the other day that’ll air in December that made me go, ‘Oh my God, I didn’t even have to act!’ I just had to be there. I hope they turn out great. What happened between us in that particular scene, I have never experienced before as an actress with another actor. Ever.”

Roger and Michelle = my favorite couple (and they aren’t even a certified couple, yet..

Hey, Nick…so glad someone else sees what I see…I love this couple. I know how far Michelle’s reach as an artist extends. I just wish the culmination of this storyline is at hand so that both she and Roger may gift us with their undeniable talent….not just their ‘crazy’ side.

The fact is Jason loved Sam when he “died”. When he gets his memories back, he’s going to remember that and his son. Liz is about to get hurt again and I’m tired of seeing that. Liz and Nik should be given a proper romantic stories and stop throwing them at other people.

NuJason has more spark with Carly, but I don’t think the writers will go that route due to the history of Jarly. Jason has never looked at Carly that way since she cheated on him with Sonny. I will never forget that episode. I was devastated.

Sam needs to be with Patrick, and Liz needs to be with Nik.

Gina, I agree about the intensity. On GH they’ve only just started showing Sam & Jake alone in scenes and the intensity is already there, IMO. Especially at the PCPD. I didn’t know if she was gonna scold him or jump him. I predict that she hates him but is hot for him at the same time. Didn’t Jason and Sam hate each other the 1st time they met back in the day? I do like Liz and Jake, but I already see problems. She got him khakis and a blue shirt (for Thanksgiving dinner, but still). I feel she… Read more »

As soon as Helena announced her diabolical plans for Jason, I predicted that he would miraculously disentangle himself from the invisible bonds holding his brain captive. He will trailer Helena’s evil machinations and give her the surprise of her so-called-life. She won’t know what hit her.

Where was GH today? no GH in L.A.? (encore of The View @ 2pm).

In my area N.E. they bumped GH to broadcast Obama’s speech. I know the President’s speech can be important, but they might have done better to have GH as the lead in to the speech and kept a lot of soap viewers.

Not to get political but his news conference was not remotely important to our country that we couldnt have heard on the evening news and had the same impact. Unlike Y&R if your GH is interrupted they only way you can see it right away is by subscribing to Hulu. QUIT CUTTING IN ON GH! Thankfully the network didnt run the show anywhere and Fridays episode will be shown on Monday.

Jeremy I live in L.A. and since I DVR episodes I had no idea of this change. In searching the internet I’ve found out that most ABC stations WILL air the episode. The only wacky thing about it is you will watch the new Monday episode at it’s regular time and the Friday pre-empted episode immediately following at 3 pm..LOL..very true..just google programming alert for General Hospital. Hope you have a DVR..actually you could do on demand or HULU also…so you really haven’t missed the episode…and there’s always that tube thingy (:

The president’s address speech was on. It was very good and optimistic and something we all needed to know as Christmas approaches.
It was about the economy. You know, real life. Now I used to say the same thing when President Bush interrupted GH for his presidential address.
Today’s GH will air on Monday.

Lol, Timmm. What’s up with that garb, anyway !!??!?. She has a great bod, she’s pretty, though boring….so, what gives? Is she making a statement?
Well, today she looked a bit trendy.
I just finished watching today’s episode where Sam justifies her mother’s break-up with Julian by blatantly stating that he is on the other side of the law. Duh-ah! Isn’t she married to a criminal? And, as I just found out, wasn’t she involved with that slitherer, Sonny?

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

Who knows who dresses her. Wardrobe? Herself? Lady Ga Ga! Yeah, Sammy baby has mob running through her veins. Jason, Sonny, and dont forget RICK! Plus, Samantha was a con artist so she should embrace Julian and those two can share trade secrets. I guess they wanted to soften her now that she is a mother?

I’m team liz & jake all the way, Sam is nothing but a whinner she complaints about everything and is a big o hypocrite, ( ok, all the girls have questionable past liz included) but still liz for me is hot with jake.

Well I want him (BM) to be with Victoria back in Geona City. (LOL), but since that ain’t happening anytime soon I think the character will be with both ladies. First Elizabeth until he get his memories back. Then he will be torn between the gratitude he had for Liz being in his corner when nobody else was and his old feelings for Sam, but eventually his feelings for Sam will win out and those two will reunite—until some new obstacles comes and breaks them apart, because this is a soap and no couple is a couple for very long.

Sam and Patrick grow stronger

Jason should be single… feast… and focus on his docorate… and bond with his mon and Tracy… feature for the fans

Becky Herbst and Billy Miller work so well together. Kelly Monaco is better off collaborating with Jason Thompson. Plus a Jason Morgan with a sense of humor and a real personality is a better fit with Liz. The robotic and stone cold Jason was better off with a dour, lifeless Sam.

Yeah, I am loving the chemistry between Becky and Billy. (Liz&Jason)

Well, Sam is one to talk! She slept with the mobster king (Sonny) after knowing him for one hot minute, then she sleeps with his hit man, Jason.

Harry said that Sam was Sonny’s plaything for a time. Ewwww !!!! The thought of mother and daughter sleeping with the same man just goes against everything that is natural, IMO. It’s downright trashy and gross. I know it happens in reality….just can’t wrap my head around it.
Were Alexis and Sam playing with the lil ‘guy’ at the same time?

Shay
Guest

Oh CeeCee, it goes waaay beyond that!!!! He actually impregnated both of them!!!! Sam had a brief fling with the “Little Don” in her early days in Port Charles, and found herself with child. She delivered a daughter who did not survive. And of course, Alexis spawned Christina with Sonny. However, this was long before either woman knew of their biological link, but when it came to light, even Corinthos himself was (momentarily) appalled….he had one of those eye-glazing moments with the realization he had sired children with a mother AND her daughter. Ewwwww, indeed!!!!!!

When Liz had Jason’s son those were exciting episodes. When Sam let baby Jake be taken from the park and when Sam had Liz and her sons threaten by gun men that should have ended Sam and Jason relationship for good. She should have never received any more chances with Jason. When they killed baby Jake off the show just so Sam and Jason could have a son was total wrong. I rather see Elizabeth with Jake (Jason) not Sam and Jake.

Sam and Jason belong together. I cannot stand Elizabeth, she always comes between Sam and Jason. She goes from one man to another and has or had 3 kids from 3 different fathers. She is a cheat. Yes, Sam has made mistakes, but not even close to what Elizabeth has done. But, I really like Sam with Silas, I would really even like Sam and Patrick, but they always bring Robin back and he will go back to Robin.

Whatever, I know that complete story, but the difference is Sam forgives Elizabeth. Elizabeth always is jumping down Sam’s throat. She is all high and mighty and plays all innocent. Sam at least does not act like a witch. When Sam made her mistakes it was because she was going through some tough times, unlike Elizabeth who made bad mistakes for no reason. Plus, the reason she should not be with Jason is because she does not accept who he is and Sam does. Also, I want back the “real” Jason. He should have not been replaced.

Its tough because Jake is nothing like the Jason we remember & 90% of his scenes since he came back are with Liz so people are getting used to them but….bottom line….Jason loved Sam was married her and had a child….he didn’t leave them by choice. So while yes this guy has no memory & may fall for Liz, it’s a soap…he’s going to get his memory back.

I love Billy Miller – I hadn’t seen him in anything before and I wasn’t a Jason fan but I converted. Lol. I agree that Jason needs to be alone for a while. He is so animated and funny and just great to watch, and I’d like to see him have a relationship with just about anybody on GH. I don’t want him with either Liz or Sam – that’s been done to death and I am utterly tired of the JaSam Liaison wars. Ugh. Too negative. I like Sam with Silas and I like Liz with Ric.

Except that we didn’t all love the Jason we knew. I was thoroughly sick of Jason by the time Steve Burton left and was relieved not to have him around anymore. So far “Jake” at least interests me. It could be that once he has his memory back and goes back to being Jason, Billy Miller won’t make a bit of difference, and I’ll be as tired of Jason as I ever was. But for now, at least, he’s interesting, and I haven’t been able to say that about Jason for years.

Becky and Billy have had incredible natural chemistry from the get go. Becky has chemistry with all of her romantic matches. However, I would love for Liz to finally get the leading man (Jake/Jason – we know TPTB will have him front and center). This way I will selfishly get to see more of her. Nik is a supporting character and Ric (RH) is probably on only for a story arc and will eventually disappear again.

I’d personally like to see “Jake” stay solo for a while and work though everything that is happening to him. When he gets his memories back he will more than likely run to Sam and Danny because their the ones he loved before “dying” and by that point Patrick will be a bigger factor in her life. After that he may go back to Liz because at the rate story lines have been dragging Liz may be due to deliver his baby lol.

I agree, why does everyone always have to hook up. Relax. Literally Jason, clear your head and then worry about girls! If Jason is a Morgan I want him with Sam, if he is a Q, Liz or someone new on the canvas. Maybe a new female doctor at GH? What if Liz’s sister comes back to town and there is a triangle, sister versus sister!

I think Sam has the better chemistry with him, but I just don’t like Billy in this role. He needs to go back to Y&R. Jason should have remained off GH until Steve was ready to return, because Shawn is doing fine as Sonny’s enforcer.

I prefer a JakeģLiz pairing but even more than that I hope for the return of Jason Quartermaine when his memory does return. So sick of all of the mobsters. Mobsters in Port Charles and on the dock and at home and in da clubs and in jail. Are all of God’s children mobsters?!?!?! Geeez already.

Sam is actually more interesting to me without Jason, but my bet is that Jason and Sam, and not Jason and Liz, is where the show is heading. How long it will take to get there is anybody’s guess.

I really love Jake and Liz! They have a lot of chemistry and are adorable in every scene that they share! I really don’t see it with Jake and Sam, I am still hoping for her and Silas to be together again. And it’s about time Liz has a good romantic chance with somebody! I hope they’ll end up together.

General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn Chats On Her Daytime Emmy-Nominated Performance and Its Significance

When the nominations were revealed for the 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, General Hospital mainstay, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis), was recognized for her stunning work in the Alexis-centric standalone episode which honored her 25th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series.

Grahn, is already a two-time Daytime Emmy winner.  She won back in 1989 in a tie for Outstanding Supporting Actress for her work as Julia Wainwright on Santa Barbara along with All My Children’s Debbi Morgan, and again received the honors in that category in 2012 for her work on General Hospital.

Now. she is vying for the gold in 2022 in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category against other formidable actresses including: B&B’s Kimberlin Brown, DAYS Stacy Haiduk, Y&R’s Melissa Ordway, and her GH castmate, Kelly Thiebaud.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Nancy to talk about her decision to enter the Emmy race this year, her powerful and moving scenes, why this nomination is significant and important to her, and her take on some very important social issues of our time.

Always candid, insightful, combined with great humor and wit, here’s what Nancy had to share below, and make sure to check out GH this week when sparks fly between Alexis and Gregory (Gregory Harrison). Will he turn out to be the new beau in Alexis’ life? Stay tuned.

Congratulations on the Emmy nomination.  How do you feel about being in the running again, especially with the material from your 25th anniversary episode?

NANCY:  You know, I don’t submit myself if I don’t think I have something, and I didn’t last year.  This year, I had the one show, and the first reason I submitted myself was I had the episode that was worthy of the competition. These judges have to sit, and watch this stuff, and very often, it’s hard to watch soap opera scenes.  It really is, unless you’re in it.  It’s a different kind of material that most primetime people aren’t used to watching.  So, it’s tricky business.  I don’t want to put them through anything too awful. I don’t want to torture them and I’ve judged before. It can be a bit tedious. So, for me to submit myself, I thought, it has to be something that isn’t going to torture another human being. The second thing is, older women get marginalized the older they get, and they get diminished very often, and every time we get nominated, it means something different to me.  This time, to me, I want it to somehow be symbolic, or a shoutout to women who are still producing, who have been doing their job for a long time and are still doing it good enough, and that it’s still worthy of respect and recognition.

When we were at the GH Convention back in March, I played the scene on-stage for the fans in attendance of when Alexis goes over to the corner of Kevin’s office and heals her younger self.  You saw the reaction just from the fans.  It’s such a beautiful moment within the story.  What did you think about how the standalone episode was crafted?

NANCY:  It was a different experience for me because GH co-head writers Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor, and script writer, Scott Sickles gave it the attention, but even more to that, they allowed me to participate in the creation of it.  They allowed the director, Phideaux Xavier, to participate.  We all sat in a room.  They said, “You know what?  Make it how you’re comfortable with it.”  There were so many people who gave it time and effort, and Phideaux gets a lot of credit because he came up with a lot of ideas.  So, the little girl in the therapy room wasn’t initially a part of it.  That was Phideaux’s idea, and they let us alter things, and they allowed me to write some words that meant something to me with the character.  Our producers, Michelle Henry and M.K Weir, who I both adore, were also a part of this.

That is great to hear that you were involved in the collaborative process of the creation of the episode.

NANCY:  We read through the whole script, and we worked it like you would on primetime. We went through it like, “Does this moment work?  Does that moment work?  Does this make sense?  Does that make sense?”  We never do that in soaps.  We don’t get to that.  So, it was a gift to me.  It really was. Chris and Dan, and Scott and Phideaux, and the two producers, generosity in gifting me that experience and making sure that it was to everybody’s liking, was really very special to me, and it meant a lot.

Did you come up with the key lines which summarized Alexis as a person and her journey: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a fighter, and an idealist and an advocate?”

NANCY:  No. They designed it, but we were allowed to enhance and contribute creatively to it, and, we don’t normally have the time to do that.  They don’t have the time to – and you can’t allow people to do that with every episode, to be creatively participating, because it would turn into madness with everybody.

Then, when it came down to choosing the scenes from your anniversary episode to include for your Emmy submission, was that a challenging process of which moments to go with?

NANCY:  I just told a little story with it with the time that I had, and so, I edited it with a friend of mine.  I did a sort of pre-edit on it, I’m good at that, and handed the timeline to our editor, who nicely put it together. It took very little effort.

In my humble opinion, I think that episode featured one of your all-time best performances.

NANCY: Thank you. There was a nice effort from everybody, from the lighting to everybody else, and all the effort Phideaux put into it.  He worked so hard on that!  It was fun for us.  It was like the old days where you really got to work something out.

It truly harkened back to everything we knew up to that point about Alexis and her past as well, and included a montage of scenes over the years.

NANCY:  I think it was M.K. who put that together, but when you’re working at the pace we’re working now, to have to sit and put together a montage of twenty-five years, that’s not an easy feat.  Nobody has time for that anymore, but they did it, and like I said, it was really, really appreciated.  My only thought with it is that I wanted it to be relatable to other people.  I didn’t want it to just be some, you know, self-indulgent Alexis episode. I knew that by bringing in the little girl and talking about people being hurt in their childhood and how that makes somebody feel that it was probably relatable to many people, and so it became meaningful to other people and not just me.

Do you think you’ll attend the Daytime Emmys? I know the last time you won you were not present.

NANCY:  Yeah, I’m planning on it.  I mean, barring anything happening! (Laughs)

Does it feel nice to be recognized by your peers?

NANCY:  Of course, it does.  It always does, and way too often, women who are still producing well in their jobs, don’t get the respect and the acknowledgment for it.  So, that’s why I’m saying, this is no small thing, and that I want other women to know that I know that, and that I wish for them the same thing.

What was the reaction of your daughter, Kate and your fiancé, Richard, when you told them you were Emmy-nominated?

NANCY:  Richie goes, “What is this?  Your 18th nomination?” (Laughs). You know what I mean?  It was just kind of like, “Yeah, sure, why wouldn’t you be?” It wasn’t like, “Oh, my God!”  It was like they kind of expected that.  That was nice!  I’m glad they feel that way.  I’m glad they weren’t surprised.  They were like, “Sure!  Of course, you would be.  Why wouldn’t you be?”  I said, “You know, it doesn’t always work like that!”

Now comes the part of having to find a dress and all that goes with it for the red carpet.  Do you enjoy that part?

NANCY:  No, I hate that part.  That is my… oh ‘boohoo’, you know?  I mean, I have to find something to wear.  Also, the older you get, that becomes so much less important, and the more makeup, and the more hair, and the more foofy, the more ridiculous I look. I start looking like Whatever Happened to Baby Jane.  You’ve just got to keep it simple.

You were talking about women and ageism.  Do you not feel that also exists for men?

NANCY:  It exists for men, but it’s not at all on the same par as women.  I mean, men still get paid more than women, and men still are valued more than women.  I mean, there are exceptions, but if you look in any place of employment, even the soaps, you will typically find the men making more money than the women, and the older the women get, the less they get.  Life’s not fair right now.  It’s fairer than it was, but still the equality game is not won yet.

I know how much all of this means to you in terms of equality for women, and people being run out of their jobs because of their age.

NANCY:  It’s just a reality.  It’s not something that I’m hopeless about, but I have a story to tell.  I’ll tell it when the time is right.  It’s life!  It happens in every field everywhere.  When my mom was 70, she was still producing the exact same way she was producing when she was 30, and she got run out, and was replaced by a man who was 40 or something, and there was no particular reason for it.  It was just, “You’re done.  We decided you’re done,” but like I said, it happens everywhere, in every line of work, and that’s why I just wanted to give a shout-out, when you still, after 36 years, can be recognized or shown respect or acknowledgment for what your do.  It’s a very big deal that I am appreciative of and grateful for.

So, rooting for Nancy to win the Outstanding Supporting Actress prize? Happy she was nominated for her work in the the milestone episode devoted to Alexis? Share your thoughts in the comment section below, and to tune-in to the 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards on CBS and streaming on Paramount+ on Friday night, June 24th.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: What’s Up With Elizabeth?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, finally moved the story of the haunting of Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) along a bit, after it has been a very slow build for the audience. As it turns out, and with the new developments, it appears that Liz has been going in and out of a catatonic state, while sleeping walking.

With a tip from Violet (Jophielle Love), Finn (Michael Easton), who is chatting with Gregory (Gregory Harrison), recalls Liz was having trouble sleeping and was that she given a sleeping aid. He thinks he may be on to something so he decides to go to Liz’s house to talk to her.

Meanwhile, Liz comes to her house and tears Finn and Violet out of the picture that Violet drew, and then gets a scissors and starts cutting pieces off of the drawing, bit by bit.

Cameron (William Lipton) comes home and see his mother.  She does not respond to him and appears in a trance-like state. He is getting more upset by the moment, and then Finn arrives on the scene.

Finn is able to get the scissors from Liz, and also get her to snap out of her trance.  Liz talks with Finn and wonders what is happening? She doesn’t even remember how she got home.  When Cameron fills Liz in on what she was doing … cutting up the drawing and all … Finn tells Liz he believes she is the one who is haunting herself.

In tears, if what Finn is claiming is true, then it is she who is responsible for slashing her dress, setting fire to Franco’s studio, and hitting Chase over the head.  In that moment, a teary-eyed Liz recognizes that something is terribly wrong, saying, “What’s happening to me?”

Finn promises Liz they will get to the bottom of this as Cameron looks on.

So, what is happening to Liz and why? Is this just a case of another sleeping pill storyline on soaps, where someone does not recall their actions or where they are going in the middle of the night a la Nighttime Hope on DAYS? Is someone controlling Liz to make her do these things?  Is something else physically wrong with Liz causing her behavior? Share your thoughts on this storyline … and where you think this is all heading via the comment section below.
