GH's Head Writers Shelly Altman & Jean Passanante Preview To Look For Renewed Connection Between Jason and Mob Boss Sonny!

Now that the groundwork has been laid for Jason to have his memories back, GH head writers  Shelly Altman and Jean Passanante are set to prove that the year and more long wait that viewers endured for Jason to remember his connections to the past will be worth it.  In an interview with TV Line, the scribes point out what having his memories back will do to certain relationships.

As for what it does to Jason and Sam (Kelly Monaco), Passanante notes:  “Remembering everything gives him the history he felt but couldn’t fully understand until now.”  Next on the list for the head writers is to put Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason back in each other’s orbit.  Will it be as mob enforcer and mob boss/friend?

Altman revealed: “That’s the one deep relationship he had yet to recover — his bond with Sonny.  So Jason will want to reach out to him in a way he hasn’t been able to since his return.  He also (now) knows that he can call on Sonny for help if he should need it in the future, And rest assured, he will one day need it.”

Passanante was quick to point out: “Jason will have to come to terms with that (violent) past. But remembering doesn’t mean he will suddenly revert to the man he was before he was presumed dead.”

So, are you glad that the head writers are finally bringing Sonny and Jason back into each other’s world? Do you hope Jason will t end up being Sonny’s enforcer once again?  Share your thoughts on what the head scribes share in the comment section below.

I guess I should be thanking the soap gods… that Liz was not a part of … or even mentioned

for this momentous ginormous entourage… “he’s back”

this unveiling… “All hail… ” the wonderment of

I think Liz needs to pack up “nu little Jake” things… and just dump him at Sam and Jason doorsteps

and adopt James Nigbor and move ON

Liz is such an important part of his story – she should have been included, including the revelation that he fell in love with her very recently. I hope this is dealt with in a very real way.

Liz was a one night stand not some grand love affair. I look forward to watching all the friendships mature w billy Miller… I have loved him making the role his and the lack of memories allowed that to happen! I’m never sure what to say to nay Sayers the I’m so done w gh if this happens people! I’m not sure why they expect a daily show to have each story be as thrilling and exciting as their favorite episode??? But for longer than any other tv show the soaps have survived and I’m grateful!

is this their way of saying that they are bringing back the awful 4some back full time to the air and the show will revolve around them always being right and everyone else being wrong? if thats the case why not bring back jill fare phelps and bog guza jr., because seriously, atman, passanante and valentini aren’t doing anything more original or fresh, or improved.

I agree…its a rehashing of what has been done to the bone before…it would be a nice change if we had Dr. Jason Q who doesnt get along with Dr. Hamculberry Finn and becomes suspicious of Finn and his girlfiend Lizard Roxie then goes to Sonny for some help looking into Finn’s past…Finn discovers what Dr.Q-Tip is up to and one dark night Jason is seriously wounded when attacked by a group of Roxy’s lizard friends-lol

I agree also..These two writers need to go..They done nothing original since replacing the previous head writer and they are rehashing the same old..Someone mention on this blog, that we need new and young writers on the soaps, which I so agree…New ideas and innovative plots..BTW, Billy Miller is a ok actor but in my opinion was not a good choice to play Jason, just saying!

This Jason story represents maybe the single greatest missed opportunity in soap history. It’s taken what seems like 2 years for the character to go from Point A to…Point A? There was so much potential for good soapy drama that has been squandered. The simplest and most satisfying thing would have been for Jason to have reverted to his original Jason Quartermaine identity, putting him at odds with his Sonny / Carly / mob past and also at odds with himself, while exploring his emotional connection to his Quartermaine family. As it is he has been kept at arm’s length… Read more »

I absolutely agree.

And I’ve got five dollars that says another head whacking a year from now because it’s been twelve months from the last head whacking.

This has been pointless. A year of who am I? Another year of I don’t remember… I pity the actor who has this one dimensional nonsense. He deserves better. So does the audience.

Que4u…Really appreciated your comment above about not knowing what to say to the nay-sayers and their expectations for a daily show. Especially those who harp the same issues all of the time. Save yourself the trouble. You can’t hit a home run everyday, and not every character is going to be a favorite to everyone. But like you I just am glad we still have GH to watch, and right now I’m enjoying most episodes. Must admit that I am tired of what seems too many bad guys and Corrinthos who don’t have to pay for their crimes.

I’m really looking forward to the return of the friendship between Sonny and Jason. They were always there for each other through the good and bad times. I really want to see Jason back as his partner. He needs to realize it is safer for Sam and Danny him in the mob. He can put his family first. Sam loved and accepted him mob and all. Don’t erase that part of Jason Morgan’s history with Sam and Sonny. About time we have the two most talented actors Billy and Maurice sharing scenes. We want more Sason and of the bromance.

To answer your question, do I want Jason to be in Sonny’s orbit, I will have to say no. I am so tired of the mob, I cannot see straight. Every time the fans say that we want less mob, TPTB add on more mob characters. The mob families are numerous. We have Sonny’s, Julian’s, and Johnny is controlling his from jail. At this point you might as well add Nikolas to the mob fray because he is going around ordering hits on people and is turning himself into being someone Helena would be proud of. He now runs the… Read more »

I am glad Jason is finally getting his memories back! And I love that Jason will begin to understand his friendship with Sonny. He was such a huge part of Jason’s life since he decided to be Jason Morgan. As for Jason and Sam… I have always loved them and felt Jason could truly only be himself with her. Loved their scenes today! They were phenomenal. Can’t wait to see what Jelly come up with next!

I can’t wait for Jason to finally be back as Somny’s business partner. Carly best friend, and Sam’s husband and Danny’s father. I love all the mob war stuff on GH. It’s been going on since the late 70’s when Luke came on the show. I think the mob makes GH different from the rest of the soaps. It makes it interesting! I love the action and shootouts. Everyone says they are sick of the mob on GH but it’s been apart of the show for decades!!

Today the stars aligned, Jason knows all the truths. Despite some moaning from others Jason belongs with Sam. There will always be complainers but the truth is in the ratings.

I liked Jake because while he had an essence of Jason, he wasn’t full on Jason Morgan. I have watched GH since I was 7 in 1971 and I have never considered abandoning the show until now. Listening to characters and fans say that Alexis is a hypocrite for defending and loving Julian and his “awful mobster” lifestyle as they all defend head mobster Sonny/Carly and all have fond memories of mobster Duke is making me ill. I can’t continue to watch as the show canonizes Sonny and family despite killing and terrorizing others in town. Sonny killed a mob… Read more »

I am very disappointed in the way Jason’s return has been handled up to and including this latest fiasco of a dramatization! It made no sense that the whole time he was Jake he,and Sam never showed any sign of romantic feelings for one another and as soon as he’s revealed as Jason, and mind you it wasn’t because he remembered, all of a sudden he and Sam are,all over one another. Didn’t make sense then and I still don’t buy it. I don’t think Billy Miller and Kelly Monaco have a tenth of the chemistry that he has with… Read more »

Loved Monday’s show and the fact that Liz wasn’t involved at all. Its about time he figures out that he loves Sam and wanted a life with her for years and all that it meant to him. Robin was very fitting since she did save his life and all and taught him how to love…. cant wait for scenes when Robin is there in the flesh.

His connection with Sonny? Sonny befriended and took under his wing a young man with a brain injury so severe he lost his love and ties to a family that adored him and a chance at fulfilling his potential as a doctor SAVING lives, not taking them. While Sonny claimed to love Jason, he sent him into the line of fire from an age younger than his own sons, Michael and Morgan, who he wont let near his business. Sonny loves his children and fought tooth and nail to keep them…yet stole Jason from Alan and Monica, Avery from Ava… Read more »

Not too wild about it if Jason goes back into the mob. Done with that scene. I’l buy it if Jason and Sonny have a friendship of “I’ll be there for you when you need me” but not as an enforcer. BM’s portrayal of Jason is definitely not stone cold; he emotes a lot, so I think this Jason needs to be on a different track.

Honestly, I really like the new Jason and I am tired of this whole mob boss thing. I think it’s cool if they can reconnect as friends, but piss on Jason being Sonny’s enforcer. He’s nobody’s punk. On another note, I’m I getting it wrong, or have they re-written history? Wasn’t it Hornsby who shot Sonny? That’s what I recall when he first recruited (or should I say blackmailed) Ava into working with him. He made her go to the crime boss meeting and present a name, which she picked on the spot. And finally, I HATE how Sonny acts… Read more »

Jason finding out… about Sonny killing AJ… may very well be the catalyst in turning… Jason Quartermaine… and HOPEFULLY

back to AJ: this will help Jason along in moving forward… out of the mob… and in to the Q

what better way for the whole shebang to lay waste and move on !

Yes, I seem to recall Paul shot Sonny. I thought we actually saw it during a recount or memory from Paul. As for hypocrisy, it galls me each time I need to hear the ridiculous dialogue between Sonny and Carly as they judge others. The absurdity of Carly judging Alexis for defending Julian…as if Carly hasn’t done and wouldn’t do anything to protect Sonny, including lying to Michael about Sonny killing AJ. And suddenly. Julian is weak ? His own daughter Sam tells Michael her father is no match for Sonny? Since when? Doesnt he have a “family” of soldiers… Read more »

Personally, I don’t want Jason back in the mob, he’s better as he is with a mind of his own and not a liking for violence. When he returned as Jake , he remembered Liz and called out Jake, that was the start of what could have been an epic love story. Yet, you had to change it, make Liz lie to him while loving him, he loved her and the boys, he was funny , loving and compassionate. That story should have been great and then give him his memory back and let him sort through it all. I… Read more »

This was not history. History would have been Emily, Edward, Lila, And AJ. They could have easily put the ones who have died (IRL) in without showing their face.

Again, I say: What a great opportunity TPTB missed when they made Carlos a criminal. He has so much charisma and sex appeal; he’s the kind of actor that was once a staple of GH–relatable, energetic, magnetic, mesmerizing. But, no, TPTB turned him into a thug–UGH!

I agree Nancy. There is something about Carlos that makes me think of the old GH and all of those magnetic and mesmerizing characters that were decent people that you rooted for. Why must everyone be tied to a mob family. I don’t root for them. I root against them, but the problem is that this show is written for the mob-related characters to shown in a good light.

I totally agree. Passanante and Altman are horrible writers. They have made GH unbearably dull and pointless. I am so bored and only watch when my favorite Roger Howarth is on.
BTW, it has gotten so bad that I wish they would kill off Franco and bring Roger back in a role more worthy of his immense talents (a la Todd Manning). They killed ATWT and are destroying GH now too.

Sonny and Jason redux is the WORST possible news. I have always loathed Sonny, and the character of Jason Morgan is a smarmy, self-righteous cartoon no matter who is playing him. As much as I pity Billy Miller being stuck in this thankless role, I pity the viewers, whose fingers have to be sore from ffing his scenes, a whole lot more. The writers should have left Jason at the bottom of the harbor, then had Sonny and Sam (one of the dullest characters in the history of soaps) follow him. UGH.

It’s going on near a year of J&S, and their year long build up to Jason’s reveal,= and it stunk, it was lame..
It was downtrodden, limp, uneventful, anticlimactic, considering a year build up to the awaited huge moment, the Jason reveal..(it was horribly dull)
And- to add to it, it’s sweeps!

If mob-mob-mob is what TPTB want, they should hire back Guza, who at least did mob-mob-mob skillfully, much as I disliked it.

I want all of Jason’s memories to come back to him and for those memories to become integrated in his psyche. It’s insulting and incredulous that the writers would have us believe Jason would still have retrograde amnesia from the accident caused by A.J. yet able to remember everything from the time he became Jason Morgan. Jason needs to know it all, including his calling to become a Doctor- A man who would have dedicated his life to saving people instead of killing them. He needs to not only remember , but to truly connect emotionally to all of those… Read more »

I’ve been watching the show from the beginning-
Jason was a passenger in the car that a drunken A.J was driving. A.,J caused the accident. Ned covered for him.

Let’s continue to renew the connection between Jason Quartermaine and his legacy family-have him become a doctor, run ELQ with Tracy, etc.

Can GH just admit it made a HUGE mistake in replacing Ron Carlivati with Jean and Shelly and bring him back already…?

Agree that replacing Ron Carlivati with Jean and Shelly was shortsighted. Ron’s writing was the best and the Academy agreed as many of the reels were his writing! Bring him back in some capacity.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”
