How Far Will "Jake" Go To Discover Who He Really Is On General Hospital?

This week’s promo for ABC’s General Hospital centers around Billy Miller’s character of “Jake” AKA Jason!

After being under mind control from Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers), it looks like “Jake” is determined to seek answers as to who he really is through any medical and psychological means necessary!

And in the stunner at the end of the teaser, it is Nikolas  (Tyler Christopher) who knows that “Jake” is really Jason! But what will he do with the information, if anything? Will he keep it to himself?  Will he use it to his advantage?

What do you think will happen to “Jake” AKA Jason after he goes through the treatments viewed in the promo after the jump?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Maybe Nik is forced by ‘Fluke the Kook’ to keep Jake/Jason’s true identity a secret…or thats not really Nik and its really Stravos Cassidine wearing a mask…lol

Between not knowing Flukes true identity and Jake not knowing his(probably not until May sweeps) i think im going to loose my mind which some believe i’ve done already…’Heather, im comin to join ya’…lol

I wonder which personality will be the reborn Jason?

I hope he will retakes his place in the Quartermaine family and slaps Michael to the wall 😉

You’d think with Patrick knowing the Cassidine took Robin to revive other Cassidines and Jason, Jakes mind control by Helene, Jake taking the phoenix figure and having visions of being in bed with Sam and knowing Jake had previous brain work, Patrick would use his own brain and realize that Jake was Jason…just a thought!!!

I think Patrick should realize Jake is Jason. Right, Jimh? It makes no sense to me that he would not. Something else that does not sit well with me is the fact that suddenly, Fluke conveniently develops a split personality. I refuse to believe that this was already written in the stars. My intelligence, as yours, jimh, and, all our other fellow-posters’s intelligence will not be bruised. I feel as if My brain has been punched and knocked around here and there with the ridiculousness of it all. So, what else is new? All other characters we have seen were… Read more »

I just hope Nik tells Sam as soon as he finds out – Please don’t drag out this story

OMG…out of curiosity I checked to see what was running in the Ex-Katie/Queen Latifta hour since they had been cancelled. Now they are silly reality shows…one had the “hosts” with their computers in front of them looking up YouTube type story’s on this and that…you know the kind of thing news programs sometimes sign off on. Maybe they are fill-ins until something “better” comes along. But they solve one problem for the network, they are beyond inexpensive. And this is what we have eventually lost AMC and OLTL to.

That is depressing, Rose.
And Dr. Oz is now on the same time as GH in my neck of the woods. He used to be on at four and now that horrid TMZ is on its time slot.
Yes, how much money can it cost to basically hire people to read celebrity gossip stories? Oh and then there is my all time favorite~ Watch What Happens Live! This show consists of a bunch of people watching Youtubes and responding to them.

whether Helena is “mind control” Nikolas… or …. he’s his own man… and has grown tired of being on the losing end of WOMEN… and turnabout is fair play… and he’s playing Helena for his own intent and purpose…..

Nikolas get’s ??? endless story for Tyler Christopher… let him corporate… chess piece with the mobs… foolery with the PCPD

it’s intriguing

although… if he’s stated… “no harm comes to my family” and Sam finds out he knew? and Liz doesn’t like the new Nik ?

still the best stuff TC Nik has had in a long long time

i’m in

I like Jake with Liz. They have good chemistry. Ric needs to go away and stay away. Liz never has a good sl anymore. I don’t get why they don’t like her over there. Remember when they were about to fire her but the fans revolted???

Lin

Madluv4 you, I agree. It’s not the actress’s fault that Liz does not have good story lines and they have her get pregnant from every man she meets and doesn’t use birth control. She was a stronger character when she was younger. Wish they would give her back the spark and story line.

LOVE Billy Miller in this new role of Jason! Miller is such a better actor! I wish Sonny would have met him maybe Sonny would have figured it out! LOL OR Spinelli!!!!

I really liked Steve B as Jason, so no complaints there. That said, Billy M has been strong in the role. He’s somehow captured Jason’s stoic nature and embued it with subtle emotions. He has chemistry with everyone on screen – he will be a powerhouse in this role!

Yes, he has been very good and seems to get better every day. As tired as I am of the dreary and endless Fluke, Tony Geary interacting with Billy Miller in jail yesterday was somewhat interesting.

No, Nik won’t tell because I’m sure Helena will blackmail him. He won’t remember what he remembered as he was going under. Patrick won’t recognize him. Spinelli will. The biggest complaints I see about Billy Miller’s Jake/Jason is that he’s boring. I love him but I actually understand what they’re saying-this man has been a victim w/no purpose for almost 6 months! 2 months would’ve been fine & I think that was their original plan, but as usual RC, who I do like most of the time, has dragggeeeddd it out again! My fav scenes were when he slammed Carlos,… Read more »

“…Please stop making him an apologetic victim!” I was thinking the same thing after watching Tuesday’ ep: as he was bemoaning “Luke” : you didn’t have to treat your own daughter so badly… ???? huh? he’s commiserating with Carly about her sons… ??? his “puppy dog” eyes… as he’s telling Sam and Liz about Helena “mind control” ———– i’m hoping the surgery will lease his memory back to the original Quartermania days… and this will move ON… back to the original days… up to this point… it’d be great to see him with Monica and Tracy… and Alice he’s got… Read more »

Oh dear Patrick…..Sappy and Michael???? No no no…a thousand times NO!!!!! Today was the second occurrence in as many weeks that she was sniffing around the Quartermaine heir’s lair and continuing with that lame, insipid apology tour of hers. And what’s with all this sudden unloading of Michael’s personal business upon this irksome miss? Enough already….the Sapster needs to be sent packing instead of wasting time and energy inventing something for her to do. (Besides, isn’t the shady Grossalie supposed to be the clueless Q’s new confidante???? Not that I miss her….)

GH’s Josh Swickard Stars in HBO Max Film ‘A Hollywood Christmas’

Circle Thursday, December 1st! That’s when you can see General Hospital’s Josh Swickard (Chase) in yet another holiday film.  This time, Swickard stars alongside Jessika Van in A H0llywood Christmas streaming on HBO Max.

In story, A Hollywood Christmas follows Jessica, a successful Christmas movie director, who begins living her own real-life Christmas movie when a handsome television executive named Christopher (played by Swickard), shows up on the set.

Sent by the network to decide if producing Christmas movies are worth the expense, Christopher’s presence threatens to halt production on Jessica’s latest film. With Christopher looking over her shoulder on behalf of the network, Jessica now has to juggle: actors on the set falling in and out of love, an elf dog, and her own romantic feelings for the network exec!

As many are aware, Josh stars in many holiday films, so it’s a bit of send-up about a guy who is in Christmas movies starring in a movie about the making of one.

Warner Brothers posted tune-in info on their official Instagram a few days ago, sharing, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… #AHollywoodChristmas premieres in SIX Days! Spend the #HolidaysWithHBOMax.”

You can check out the trailer below.

Will you be checking out Josh in ‘A Hollywood Christmas’ starting this Thursday? Comment below.

GH’s Kelly Thiebaud Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

In heartbreaking scenes on last week’s episodes of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) gets the news she has feared for quite some time – that her battle with Huntington’s disease has progressed even further than she imagined.

The moments were all played with devastating perfection by Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, who has GH fans know will be departing the ABC daytime drama series soon.

In story, Austin (Roger Howarth) set up a consultation with a Huntington’s Disease expert, Dr. Talone. When the three meet to discuss Britt’s case, she learns that symptoms she thought were stress from being on the run a few years ago, and when she was in prison, were the early manifestations of the disease.

After Dr. Talone examines Britt, she reveals that Britt now has the signs of stage three Huntington’s.  As for her prognosis, Britt will have ‘significant cognitive impairment’, and while she was anywhere between five to fifteen years in her lifespan, it could be as soon as eighteen months when Britt will need assisted living and full-time care.

When Dr. Talone exits, Austin offers to stay with Britt, but she asks for him to leave her office so she can be alone.  Once by herself and overcome with the news she received (and looking at her framed medical license and business card which says that Britt is Co-Chief of Staff of General Hospital), she finally loses it and tears up her office.  Cody (Josh Kelly) comes upon her, when she is left holding the necklace she found in Peter’s possessions which are the diamonds of the Ice Princess.

Britt is in tears and tells Cody that when she found out her father, Faison had died, she thought it was finally over. However, his reach extends far beyond the grave! Britt is in disbelief that she wasted so much time seeking his approval.  Cody tries to calm Britt down by telling her she is worth loving.  Britt remarks, “Even with what’s been passed down to me?”  Cody is confused and thinks she is talking about the necklace which now makes Britt believe that Cody was only into her for the diamonds.

Later, in the most gut-wrenching and emotional scenes, Britt confesses to her mother, Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) that her disease has progressed. Obrecht wants to get her to a specialist in Toronto, but Britt says she just met with her and she informs her mother she has five to fifteen years to live – and a year and a half before she may require full-time care.  Obrecht promises they will fight this. An overcome Britt asks her to just stop because she doesn’t need a doctor … she needs a mom.  The two embrace, but Obrecht cries Britt deserved a better mother than her. Kathleen Gati and Kelly Thiebaud were extremely touching and effective in these scenes.

When looking at the totality of the arc of this story that played out last week, and the understated and beautiful work of Kelly Thiebaud, it is without question Michael Fairman TV gives our Power Performance of the Week honors to Kelly.

So, what did you think of Kelly’s performances as Britt learns what she will now be faced with in the years ahead and the aftermath? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s Kathleen Gati on Liesl Learning Britt is Sick: “This Was the Most Painful and Profound Episode I Have Filmed in 10 Years”

This week in a preview of a heartbreaking episode of General Hospital, Liesl (Kathleen Gati) will learn her daughter, Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), now has developed symptoms of Huntington’s Disease and its progression is making Dr. Westbourne very sick.

In story, look for Britt to confide in her mother, noting that that the disease is beginning to overtake her body.

Liesl’s portrayer, Kathleen Gati shared with Soap Opera Digest (in their latest issue on newsstand now), just how mutter will react to the news.

Gati expressed: “I have to say this is the most painful and profound episode I have filmed in 10 years.”  Kathleen has played the role of Dr, Liesl Obrecht since 2012.

She goes on to say, “Liesl puts her doctors hat on to give hope to herself and to Britta, encouraging her that they are both well-trained doctors and can find a way to help Britta.”

However, that’s not what Britt wants to hear.  She needs her mother, and the support and comfort from her, at this devastating time in her life.

Kathleen shares it’s at that point that Liesl realizes she needs to stop all the medical talk and just be there for her daughter.

So, are you looking forward to the scenes between Britt and Liesl?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
