New General Hospital Promo: Jake Says To Sam: "Can You Help Me Find Out Who I Really Am?"

ABC has released its latest promo for the action this week in Port Charles.

Top among the storyline themes finds Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) trying on her wedding headdress in her mirror and saying, “This is really happening!”  As Liz is psyched for her upcoming wedding to Jake (Billy Miller), it looks like it may set up a race against time.  That’s because from the the looks of the promo  Jake had now asked Sam (Kelly Monaco) to help him figure out who he truly is!  In it,  he phones Sam and asks for her help.

Will Sam ultimately be the person to out Elizabeth and Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) for keeping the secret of his Jake’s true identity?  We know that it seems that Sam will enlist Spinelli to help her crack this mystery with the return of Bradford Anderson.

Meanwhile, Laura (Genie Francis) knows the truth about Jake,  and Hayden (Rebecca Budig)  is trying to piece together what happened before she was shot.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) is also featured in the promo yelling at his sons: Michael (Chad Duell) and Morgan (Bryan Craig) for getting involved in mob business with the five families.

Watch the latest promo from ABC.  Then tell us, how do you think the Jake will reveal will finally play itself out? Will Sam find out the truth and stop the wedding of Jake and Liz … or not?  Comment below!

Have always thought that Spinelli would have a hand in finding out, would really love for Sam , Spinelli and Jake to find out together.

I think Sam will find out who Jake really is just before his wedding with Liz . Or it could be right after the vows are spoken & than the wedding would be nulled because he is already married !!

now we really know jake is jason with brain damage, i mean asking sam to help him solve or figure out who he is, Sam hasn’t ever solved any case, these two might just really belong together after all, liz deserves better. Lucky is worthless, Jason is well not so bright and nicolas, has been turned into his father, liz needs a completely new men.

Jason has had so many brain surgeries and brain injuries I’m surprised he isn’t played by Gary Busey, who’s career never recovered from the head trauma he sustained from a motor cycle accident.

For everyone’s sake I hope he doesn’t get another brain injury.

How many surgeons have stuck their hands under his skull. One more and he fills his punch card for a free surgery?

Lol, a free surgery and complimentary oil change while you wait, at GH Brain Surgery & Lube!

Torgumada! You have no idea how much your comment amused me. I loved it, loved it, I tell ya!
But remember, Gary Busey is busy preparing to be Donald Trump’s running mate.

It’s strange how Jake suddenly cares who he is. We’ve been told over and over again as the audience he doesn’t want to know lending me to believe it’s ok Liz kept the secret. Regardless, the reveal will happen and I’m hoping for well written chacter driven material over plot points.

I hope so, too. Maybe the perceived Jake turnaround is a quick new direction by the new writers to restore Jason to being Jason? I just hope Jason makes the most of this incredible new lease on life. To have him settle into the mob life again would be just plain stupid.

I think the reason Jake is anxious about finding out his true identity is because Laura put the thought in his head. Her words about not knowing if he has a family out there probably waiting for him, sitting in limbo, gave him pause. So, of course, Sam will be front and center helping him. This is as much about har as it is him. Did you doubt it for a minute that the writers would turn the focus on these two, Crystal? LOL…..at this point, I’ll take anything which could potentially speed the process of ‘finding’ Jason. And, it will take air time away from Sonny and company…two birds with one stone. Well, except for Michael…there is the prospect of him becoming a daddy.
I just wish Shay would check in, especially now….Sabrina is expecting. I want your take on this, Shay. Is it Michael’s? He’s the only one with whom she’s sleeping, right? Where are you, Shay? I miss you!

yah .. Sabrina’s baby will be Michaels..
She has only been with him. Even Though we have not even seem them getting all hot and doing the nasty, yup it’s Michales. or-
it could be an immaculate conception story ahaa!

and– Jason will go back to the mob in one way or another because that is who/what he is, a mobster.
‘sides, what else could he do lol be a waiter at the MC ..
even if a Q he knows zip about big business and he would never ever settle as being a desk jockey, no way.. not who he is..
Jason and Sonny will have a great reuniting, they are brothers in their own right.

I agree, Cee Cee, which gives us Laura fans yet another reason to love Laura.

I think Helena has captured Shay!

@su.
Hey, Su.
Jake could resume his profession of helping people, su. I thought Jason Q was a doctor? Or an intern? Well, before he was turned into the Frankenstein’s monster, anyway. Correct me if I’m wrong. Later.

@su.
PS.
Sorry, su, for being annoying. But, it just came to me that Valerie could also be pregnant. Now, Lulu and Dante will be going through the medical process of getting pregnant. What if the procedure goes awry? They only have one shot. Enter Dr. O. She will take the embryo from Val and put it into Lulu. Voila’?

@Timmm.
HaHa, Timmm… Oh, Shay can take care of Helena. Shay will just mesmerize her by giving Helena one her beautifully written pieces.
Actually, Timmm, I have received a post from her in my inbox. Glad to have heard from her.

@Timmm….No, Helena has NOT captured me,, but I strongly suspect she may be moonlighting as a moderator here at MFSoaps, because my posts are definitely being held hostage! All I have to do is make mention of “Sappy,” “Alexis” or a variety of other apparently controversial topics in my remarks and “POOF!”….they are gone!….I’ve lost count of how many replies to CeeCee, Harry and you have disappeared.

@Shay.
So, you’ve been here all along. Unbelievable!!!!!! I told you, Shay. ‘Someone’ is a member of the moderating team. I just wonder if our posts are presented to Mr. Fairman before appearing on the boards. Probably not. The point of hiring moderators would be moot, yes? Well, I can kiss this comment goodbye! Lol.
If we could see Alexis in a different setting other than the one offered us….that is, in perpetual dishabille , we would not be tempted to comment on this oversexed matron.
It’s a shame, really, because I like her and the writers are doing her talent a disservice. They just keep on portraying both Alexis and Julian as teen angers whose hormones are running on a wild rampage….it makes them look like thieves in the night, sneaking around in search of a clandestine tryst.

Well, not exactly ALL along, CeeCeeGirl…I did take a brief “timeout” because trying to post here became a nearly complete exercise in futility. But since I’ve “returned,” I’ve sent about a half-dozen responses to your remarks alone—on various threads—and you have received, what, maybe half of them???? For example, I actually replied to your last post here immediately after my remarks to Timmm….that’s gone, and all I discussed were the topics you broached! (Oh, I did attempt a resend on that other thread as you’ve requested…fingers crossed!) Having said that, of course, I agree with your assessment of Alexis and Julian….they look like ridiculous, sex-crazed adolescents….their behavior is way past stale! We are not the only ones who have repeatedly made this pronouncement, yet, these two continue to be presented as such. How ludicrous! Ditto for the characters oft-named not just by me, but many different contributors here, that we wish to see less of, if not at all….again, no change in that situation either!!! I thought that in addition to sharing thoughts and having lighthearted fun with other daytime fans here at MFSoaps, the idea was to provide feedback to whomever from the prospective shows cares to take a looky-loo at our unvarnished, true reactions to the product(s) they are pushing. If we are not satisfied, and that would certainly appear to be the case for GH given the dismal ratings, then why wouldn’t our honestly-expressed reviews be taken for what they are? They are just opinions, after all, and many are absolutely fascinating to behold….why some of ours are seemingly considered so controversial as to be deemed unsuitable for inclusion online is beyond me. Oh well….onward and upward….I hope you get this latest effort of mine!…Later!!!!

SHAY! How utterly frustrating for you as well as for those of us who enjoy your snappy writing which makes some of us roar with ribald laughter. The very idea that your pearls of wisdom, gems of narrative prose and treasures of witticisms, disappeared is quite vexing to me.
I do not understand the filtering/moderation process of various sites.
For instance, I recently wrote a Yelp review which was put in the filter bin which Yelp calls “Reviews not Recommended.” It’s the pile of shame for Yelp reviewers. Allow me to brag–I write really good and somewhat funny reviews and they are predicated upon my real life experience with a business establishments. This review in particular was about a vacuum cleaner store and their repair service. I wrote that the vacuum which I purchased from this establishment ,and which they subsequently serviced, sucked big time. Now see? I explained that sucking in this case was a good thing and went on to say my vacuum sucked with amazing horsepower. But the word ‘suck’ just automatically kicked my review into the pile of Yelp shame. Perhaps something similar is being employed here.
Perhaps the following phrases and arrangement of words will automatically make comments go POOF! Consider the following: Sappy, Sparkle Pony, Val Chops, Princess Collection, cleavage as big as the Ritz, and finally, huffing and puffing like a couple of adolescent horn dogs in heat.
Let us see if this post even comes through. In any case, I think I may be on to something. And Shay? Unlike my vacuum, you do not SUCK!

Oh, I hear you, ShayGirl. I will never understand why this couple has been targeted to act as High Schoolers playing hooky, and ending up, unfailingly, in bed. And, once again, I had to suffer a frontal view of Julian in his drawers. I find that particular picture offensive. One’s eyes can’t help going there. And if the moderators can’t see it’s not our words that are improper, but ‘that’ image, then, something’s rotten in Denmark. However, I do have confidence in the moderators who tediously ‘sift’ through our labor of ‘love’…lol. Perhaps it would not bother me so much had they been boxers, instead of extra-short jockeys. I don’t want to even see a hint of IT? Disgusto……and, their childish banter…..don’t get me started on that!
I think that the reason some of our posts don’t make it is because there are a few chosen words that make bells go off. Perhaps, it isn’t the moderators at all, but a machine set to smell and weed out certain words, such as Harry’s mot du jour; SUCK. LOL.
Nontheless, it’s baffling how some posters can attack fellow-posters by getting a free pass.meanwhile, we cannot express our feelings of certain characters. I ask; is that fair?
I do like Nancy, but, I must admit, Alexis gets on my nerves, albeit that’s not my fault. That moue meant to be cute and charming looks ridiculous on her. The lisp affectation, even worse. So, the character/actress would get a lot more respect if the writers would write the role in a more mature way…..in plain English. HAVE HER ACT HER AGE!! Her daughter Molly exudes more sofistication and maturity than she does. How did she manage to rear such a well-rounded young lady? Did she go to finishing school? I did. LOL.
It feels great doing this with you, again. But, I have not heard a peep out of you about Sam, Liz, Ava, Val, Sabrina…well, all the ladies, gracing the sinful ‘ Naked City’ (lol) of Port Charles, ShayShay. What say you? Buonanotte, cara.

@Shay.
Now, Shay…that was a stupid thing for me to ask your opinion on the ladies of Port Charles.. But, you have given it….just didn’t make it. I DEMAND you do it again…LOL.
I am also curious to know what you think of Baby Boy Doll, Michael ( as Timmm describes him) suddenly becoming a turncoat by joining Sonny’s tainted camp. Michael’s ‘malvitoso’, seemingly tough exterior, just doesn’t cut it….not with those dufusy eyes and soft skin. Ridiculous. Here he is !!!! What are TPTB trying to make him do? Pick up the reins where Sonny, the fake ‘contrabbandiere’ left them?
Also, do you remember a while back when doe-eyed Dante and Lulu started talking about a second baby? I had said that I believed Emme to be pregnant, ergo the renewed talk about trying again. I also think that Valerie will be pregnant. That mix-up with the little white bags to either stir/start trouble or to deflect a true Valerie-pregnancy was stupid. So obvious!!!! I think she is pregnant with Dante’s baby. What a mess. There will be hell to pay..a mayhem of switching babies, dying babies, incubated babies…not looking forward to that!! …..who is the father, whose baby belongs to whom?? Three pregnancies, Shay. If I am completely off the mark, I will eat a few of my mother’s Borsalinos. A piu’ tardi, bella.

See???? It worked like a charm, CeeCeeGirl! Since you seem to be aware of my musings, does that mean you actually received them this time even though they didn’t make it online???? At least that’s progress….LOL. As for those further sentiments you requested….maybe later, mia amica. I’m just checking in right now, and I don’t have the inclination to add to the moderating garbage pile at the moment.

@Harry….Well, so much for that theory, but thank you just the same for your generous—and characteristically witty—words, Sir! I cannot tell you the number of occasions when I have so enjoyed one of your quick quips and have responded in kind, only to have my replies refused. (Just the ones about that verboten “Sparkle Pony” are pretty much countless!) Whilst I have never been prone to harboring feelings of persecution, it is rather dispiriting to so frequently not be allowed to join in the immense merriment that CeeCee, jimh, Timmm, and you, amongst many others, bring to this website. My firmly tongue-in-cheek remarks are always meant in jest….just a bit of fun. You definitely get that….perhaps you should apply for the position of “Chief Moderator” here….I would feel very safe entrusting my posts to your sense of judgment, not to mention, humor!!!! At any rate, thanks again for your support, and for sharing your hilarious suggestions and “Yelp” experience with all of us!!!! (Oh, and for the record, you certainly do not $#@% either!…..)

Jake has all these flashbacks about Sam, Danny runs to him, Spin calls him Stone Cold, Sonny calls him Jason, and he and no one else can put two and two together?…You would think someone with no past might wonder if he could be Jason, especially since he knew he and Robin were captives of Helene Cassidine!…and with Jasons body never found and Patrick knowing Jake and Jason had similiar brain surgery you would think others would wonder if he could be Jason?…Guess they all could use brain surgery!

This show also has bad amnesia and has forgotten Monica, Mac and Felicia characters and Nathans who-ya-daddy plot!

You would think with all of the clues someone would figure Jake is Jason. But then the Port Charles PD never seems to solve cases either.

Jim, you are brilliant. I said the same thing which is why you are brilliant!

I am applauding your brilliance, Harry and jimh. Its bright light radiates though the air waves….
LOL.

I don’t want Sam to be the one who figures out the truth– I mean the truth has been staring her in the face all this time and she hasn’t managed to put it together yet, so what fun will it be watching her get a clue now— Personally, I rather have Liz finally get a backbone and confess— at the altar, just as they about to exchange vows, when the part comes– does anyone know of any reason why these two cannot be join in marriage speak now or forever hold your peace– Liz speaks and spills her guts– that will be a very soapy way to make the reveal.

Yes, I agree, Mary. I have said this from the get go. Liz coming forward with the truth is the only way she can be redeemed. I must say, she is such a good actress….as credible as she is beautiful. I beg for the writers not to let her plunge deeper and deeper in this black hole she has created for herself….please! So disappointed in this character. But, as I also said before….if the writers plan to couple Jake with Sam, then Liz must be the scapegoat to allow for that plan to be conceived and develop.

This story line needed to wrap up a year ago.

Remember when DAYS spent over a year with two dudes claiming to Roman Brady which set up the never ending so who is John Black, which has returned. Y&R strung out the it’s Adam story line for year.

These storylines are so uninteresting. Casting changes happen, audiences can keep up. END this never interesting story line.

This story has outlasted my interest in it. I just hope the aftermath is worth it.

I think Jake/Jason is going to crash Sam’s wedding. Emma maybe right…

or someone crashes Jake/Jason & Elizabeth’s

I do not want Sam and Jason/Billy together..
Sam is a lackluster downer, Billy/Jason will be brought down to boring with her.
Jason and Sam are so over.
Sam is just not interesting no matter what she does who she is with it is always a big snore.

Billy has charisma, a lot of charisma.. the Sam character will kill it and drag Jason down into her lackluster void.

FREE JASON !!

I kind of agree with you, Su00. Sam is also dumb as a box of rocks.
Let’s see–Sonny, Spinelli, Danny, a blind old Chinese woman have all called Jake Jason. Jake reacted like a stone cold, professional hit man when he saved Sonny and finally, everyone knows he has a new face.
For a PI, Sam has terrible instincts as well as a lousy sense of style.

I agree, Su.. But billy needs to find out who he is for multiple reasons. Both he and Sam need closure. Danny needs to know his father as much as Jake needs to know his son.
I just don’t like to see Sam and Patrick to be torn apart, though…..just when I started to like them together….Patrick AND Emma will be so hurt. She already is experiencing her little girl fears…..poor kid.
Methinks you are right about Sam and Jake. I said this before. Jake needs to be free for a while….And, he will do that on his own when he realizes what Liz has done. He needs to take Port Charles in….breathe the newfound, yet familiar, salubrious air which can only heal him. But, on top of the list , he should STAY AWAY from Sonny and his contagion.

He got more chemistry with sam than lizabitch she is boring dont make jason boring with her gh forget lizabhitch she had her chance and decided she couldn’t be with jason cause of the danger she needs to take two seats now she wants jason well jason jake is boring with her he has too much time on his hands always at the hospital ugh thats a waste of good talent and I hope they find out before Patrick get hurt I heard hes leaving anyways when his contract up in october he wants to try different things instead of soaps

Sometimes, a period (.) can be your best friend.

Sam will find out swing open the church door wearing white go go boots and stop the wedding. Remember the snooze sisters are writing this as Suoo calls them so it is a repeat of Nick and Sharon on Y&R’s wedding.

At Sam and Patricks wedding with little Danny as ringbearer, Jake now Jason stands in the doorway…Danny turns, sees Jason and exclaims, “Daddy!” then in slow motion Danny runs into Jasons arms as a stunned Sam and Patrick look on…Patrick ,
exasperated, grumbles, “Damn, not again! This is just like when Robin appeared when i was to marry Emmas sappy nanny Sabrina!’…lol

HA! Kay, and as Nancy Sinatra sang,”These boots were made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do, one of these days these boots will walk all over Lizzy….ready boots? Start walking!”
Excuse the loose paraphrasing.

Didn’t the same thing happen when Patrick and Sabrina were at the altar? Robin opened that ‘infamous’ door too. Poor Emma….she’ll be disappointed and hurt tenfold. Just for that Harry, “….these boots are gonna walk all over Lizzie” would be so satisfying.

Thank goodness Spin will be helping Sam put the pieces together, otherwise we
could be looking at the NEVER ending & borrrrrrrrrrrring “Who is Jake Doe” saga.

Fanny, did you know Sam has been reading “Where’s Waldo?” Not to her son Danny, mind you, but to herself. She’s been trying to find Waldo since she was about five years old! Sam still cannot find Waldo and she still cannot find the love of her life who might as well be wearing a T shirt which reads,”I am really Jason.”

@Harry…Hi Omar…
It’s really unfortunate but Sam comes across as a dodo bird,
her character had such potential. Yet she hasn’t really out
grown the younger version of herself and evolved into this
confident woman. Her facial expressions alone… drive me
NUTS…Has no one ever told her that excessive squinting,
closing her eyes and touching her forehead only makes
her look dazzzzed and confused. Hopefully Fiona’s acting
will rub off on Kelly.

Well they essentially had Emma be like the Oracle at Delphi today. Obviously someone is going to crash a wedding. The interesting part is Sam & Patrick said they’re not going to get married BEFORE Liz & Jake. So either Sam is going to crash Jake’s wedding (or Spinelli) or Robin comes back with the truth–not knowing Elizabeth knows.

Interesting that Hayden knows for sure now. (And they’ve never explained why no one has come looking for Hayden either).

lol, right?
But what if someone breaks up the wedding …. thanks for the heads up Emma!

I LIKE WHAT IS HAPPENING THIS WEEK, IT IS A GREAT BEGINNING FOR THE NEW WRITERS. I AM SURE THERE WILL BE MORE FAVORABLE COMMENTS FROM THE FANS. I HAVE BEEN WITH GH SINCE THE BEGINNING AND HAVE ALWAYS LOVED IT AND ALL OF THE CHARACTERS. I THINK YOU SHOULD KEEP SONNY AND HIS FAMILY, FOR A LONG TIME THEY SHARED THE SHOW, I AM NOT SURE IT WOULD BE THE SAME WITHOUT HIM. HE IS SUCH A GOOD ACTOR AND SO IS THE OTHER MEMBERS OF HIS FAMILY. IT SEEMS WITH THE NEW WRITERS, THEY ARE SHOWING A BIT OF BOTH. I WOULD SAY, LET THEM SHARE, LIKE YOU ARE NOW DOING.

Too late! Even Y&R unmasked Gabe and they did it in the beginning of October! They have plenty to play off of Adam’s identity. Same with GH. Unmask Jake NOW and there is plenty to play out for November sweeps! But no, they constantly stall and rehash with flashbacks we had just seen FIVE minutes ago! Its bad. I will NOT stop watching but I’m afraid there will be nothing to watch soon! How many posts in the last year alone have fans vented about all the useless characters on this show and them not using the character we want! Nathan, Morgan, Michael, Valerie, Lulu, Maxie, Julian, Sabrina, Dante, CUT THEM! And if Laura mopes around from door to door interrupting hot sex and has nothing to add to the show, CUT HER TO! For god sakes, Billy Miller will be in primetime before we know it!

Timm, I agree. I am tired of some soaps waiting for sweep months for their great reveals.
Kudos the Y&R for not employing that same cheap and transparent tactic.

Billy Miller’s first year anniversary is this month and Justin’s is next month. We waited long enough for the reveal! Look how exciting Y&R is this week! GH is dismal!

No, Robin will be the one, she is the one who saved him to begin with, it makes sence for her to be the one to reveal Jason.

Thats a good theory but where the hell is Robin?

The actress ain’t coming back ever.

And die hard fans would claw the flesh off the poor soul tasked with the recast.

This role should have been recast. The actress is no longer an actress ( which is fine because she had the good sense to realize her true talent wasn’t in front of a camera).

The character needs to return, but not the very lovely and thoughtful person who originated the role at age six.

@Torqumada. I know, Kim has been there forever but they need the character and its not the “General Robin” show so recast and do it with Finola involved. I applaud Kim for moving on and fulfilling her dreams. If they can replace Steve Burton they can replace Kimberly McCullough!

Better yet, if the were able and willing to recast Lucky, not once but twice, then why can’t they recast Robin which is less than a formidable task?
I love KM’s Robin–I really do. I watched her grow up on screen. But I do feel she is replaceable and I do think she ought to be recast.
I am a fan but you will not see me, as Torgumada put it so well, “claw the flesh off the poor soul tasked with the recast.”
It’s time to recast Robin as she is vital to these stories.

Thank you, 3-ems. Oh, yeah ! MR BLUE SKY…..love it!!!!! That and DON’T BRING ME DOWN, which is another song Jude ( my husband) sings to me, when I’m mad at him. Lol.
Who do you like better, Victor or Sonny? You better give me the right answer, or else.
Do you think, Eric is retiring? If so, is Justin being groomed to take his place? I would LOVE that. I’d like to see what Justin/Adam can do at his best….or worst ( as a ruthless spawn of Victor’s). Luv-ya.

I hope Spinelli figures it out. He’s the best choice. He can have his Stonecold back.

BTY, is it true that Jason Thompson (Patrick) is leaving GH?
Does anyone know?

Really ???????

Fanny, Jason Patrick is allegedly frustrated with the writing afforded to Patrick. This brilliant and once arrogant doctor is now relegated to being Sam’s purse holder and he has to listen to her talk about Jason 24/7.
I swear she says Jason while in the throes of passion with Patrick. Patrick, Jason Thompson deserves better than this.

@Harry.
Now, now, Harry. There’s nothing wrong for a guy to hold his mate’s purse.

Spin and Billy Miller should be good together. I would love it if Monica were the one to figure it out. Remember her?

As for JT, the only thing I’ve heard so far is he is unhappy the way his character has been written lately, ie, he has had very little to do! One soap is rumored to be interested in him as a recast. Speculation?

Monica should have been the first to have recognized her son, if she were around more than a second, Timmm. I guess they’ve all been reading WHERE’S WALDO? together. So funny, that Harry…HaHa.

True that, Ms. Cee Cee. Unfortunately, while Patrick is either holding Sabrina’s purse or Sam’s purse, he is unable to hold onto his balls.

Yes hes leaving so I know jasam getting bk together yes cant wait either and nic should be with hyden shes the one nic needs in his life

How can people with no legal identity get married? They need blood tests…identification…signatures. Maybe if someone mentioned he had the same rare blood type as Jason…someone…maybe even the BRILLIANT P.I. Sam….might add that to the 473 other clues….and ask a question or 14!!

How? You ask, Dylan? Well, these are the same people who will have divorced couples remarry in the Catholic Church (Roman CC) over and over. Any Roman Catholic who went through religion class and THE CATECHISM, who knows the laws of said church, is aware that one cannot remarry in the church. It is a no-no. One would have to be a widow/widower, get an annulment from the Vatican, which is the same as a special dispensation. Some people will argue that fact/law. I don’t agree with it, but, until Canon Law changes, it is what it is. A body cannot even marry in the church without having received all the sacraments. ….very strict and restrictive.
So, Dylan …I said this before; soaps have their own set of laws/codes for everything. Sonny probably compiled those rules and regulations.

CeeCee..
that is why they get married by internet ordained ministers, friend or family member, and get married under trees., and it’s low budget, that is very good lol.

Soaps have no laws or rules with exception of great naked sex the way I see it it’s the only regulation LOL :)..

@CeeCee…..GH has been playing fast and loose with the rules of the RCC for quite some time. We had a huge discussion here about it during the Sappy and Patrick “wedding interruptus.” (Hat tip to Harry for the charming description…) During that nuptial farce, the writers had Lucy Coe officiating the vows with not a priest in sight….as if anybody could just traipse into a Catholic church and conduct a marriage ceremony! As far as I am aware, the only way even actual ordained clergy of other faiths can assist in a Catholic church service is as a concelebrant with a priest presiding….yet, there was “Floocy” in all of her scatterbrained glory running the show by her lonesome! (Like one could just rent the church for the atmosphere, with no rules to abide whatsoever!) I realize that all soaps take creative liberties, but there should be at least a modicum of respect for religious conventions when such a “holy” location is utilized.

@Shay.
That is exactly my point, Shay. Not only is it disrespectful, it is sacrilegious to even contemplate “renting” the Church as one would a wedding reception. Yes, soaps are tantamount to fantasy, I will grant that. But, why not throw a little realism in there? It’s almost like making a mockery of what my Church and its convictions represent. There is a fine line here, Shay. One should tread easy in crossing it, poetic license or not. Later.

Very true, CeeCee! The last regime appeared to take a particular delight in offending those of the RC persuasion…between flaunting unheard of practices and that truly distasteful “crypt tryst,’ it was truly revolting. I simply don’t understand the intolerance….even if you don’t agree with the basic tenets of “The Church,” there are certainly enough others out there to provide a place of comfort and sanctuary for most any point of view, and in this country, one is free to go in search of what suits one. It’s rather puzzling to me why that is not enough for some people.

You are so smart CeeCee! BTW, ELO, “Mr. Blue Sky” best song ever!

I’m glad this storyline is finally moving towards a conclusion. It’s the story that would never end. If RC were still the head writer, we might not have seen the Jason reveal until the 2020 November sweeps. At least now it looks like we might see it by the end of the year. I honestly don’t even care about if Jason ends up with Sam, Elizabeth, or the waitress at Kelly’s. I just want this story to conclude, so everyone can move on.

Aside from the fact is TV fiction 1) I don’t think you need blood tests anymore to get married. 2) Jake obviously has been issued a state ID (driver’s license) so if the state accepts you’re Jake Doe and gives you a DL, he can get married

I can not understand how Liz is getting married when jake does not even know his real identity is she going to be Mrs doe come on let his memory come out already

Yes I was thinking the same thing and jake jason is still married to sam anyways so if he even married lizabitch its not real so she doing all that for what stupid she knows after jasam got bk together after sam got her bby bk they decided to stay married and she still going thru with the wedding so I dont feel sorry for her if she looks dumb afterwards she deserves it if anything she should’ve let jake know off top who he was and let him decide who he is jason will hate liz for her keeping him away from danny and his family and making his family grieve when they dont have too

The new writers came in this week, and we are in full swing to reveal this Jake/Jason secret. Thank goodness Laura came back to drill this in his head to find out who he really is. I wonder why there wasn’t an announcement that the new writers showed up already. I had to read the GH credits to find out. P.S. Sonny in a wheelchair = meaty material.

their 1st episode was yesterday, Wed 7th ..
today thursday 8th is their 2nd .. 🙂

Maybe Laura, Nicholas, Elizabeth and Hayden can all jump up and say “hey Jake, its you Jason!”
Seriously, the whole damn town knows but I’m sure Sweeps week will finally make the reveal. Should I even bother following it until then?
It’s gotten absurd.
Frankly, at this point, I like Sami with Patrick and their little family. She obviously ain’t feeling IT for Jake. This isn’t like John & Marlena where Marlena fell in love with John Black and it turned out to be Roman — Sam is not in love with Jake!
End the story.

*Sam not Sami*

Liz needs help, at first you think I like them together but then you know she’s wrong.
I think Liz is so far gone it’s just very sad now.

I got that impression, as well, Jane. Trying on the different styles of her crowning-wedding-glory; the veil (symbol of virginity—-guffaws), primping this way and that gave me pause….Well the woman is definitely disturbed. That’s what I used to do with my mother’s clothes/shoes at the age of six.
I think Miss Lizzie is in LaLaLand. Her reality is skewed with an altered mental state. I bet this is where the story will eventually go. The men in white will come collect her.
It takes either a screwed-up brain or courage to go on with everyday life like this.

CeeCee I totally agree, I think she has lost her mind, doesn’t she realize her wedding won’t even be real, Jake(Jason) is already married. Even if they do say I do it won’t be real. She’s completely in lalaland and her character becomes more pathetic every day

I am glad the great reveal which has taken al whole year to transpire has just about arrived, Now I know their are new writers I really hope they end this story right. Because this one right here could make or break General Hospital I hope GH is listening to the vast majority of the fans! Make Liz go away! Put Jason and Sam together! I personally think GH should allow Jason & Sam to kiss! And watch his entire memory come back! Do not make Jason change a lot! His edge is what makes him special! OK GH the ball is in your court! Play it right!

Somebody please save GH! It is unwatchable to this diehard, lifetime ABC soap fan. I’m roughly two weeks behind because I just can’t watch it. Last night I tried getting through the episode where Sam & Jakeson meet up at their restaurant, and Liz & Patrick drone on and on about I don’t even know or care what. It was dreadful. I want to love GH so much and would be so happy to invest 5 hours a week of my life in this show for just the bare minimum. I don’t want this show cancelled. It has a talented cast, years of history, and an audience who wants nothing more than to support it. But I tried so hard to think of just one character or storyline I love enough to watch this show on a regular basis and sadly couldn’t come up with even one. 🙁 At this point I’ve entered Guza Years apathy and that is when I stopped watching it last time. But then I still had my beloved OLTL.

When I pick watching B&B over GH, there is a problem.

“… I tried so hard to think of just one character or storyline I love enough to watch this show on a regular basis and sadly… ”

here, here

the one character, that comes to mind : as i’ve posted for eon; Tyler Christopher is LEADing the cast

the story potential for his character ; only if; Hayden just gives up, her , goes nowhere, blackmail… on Nicholas… it just aint happening… unless the love thing… takes over.

she simply must partner, pair, and pummel… any one… who dares to take ELQ from the nuERA… ELQ is helmed by the Cassadine… so be it

??? why not… the head writing team.. doesnt want to premiere and gala the Quartermaine… even if Billy Miller has the cajones to frontburner

I am really quite surprised at all the lovelorn and past tense… ??? of Jason and Sam… Hello? Steve Burton… kudos, to him… carried this pairing… Kelly Monaco did nothing but strut her stilletos and black clothing like… and sports bra’ed her team… LOL…. purred her hot kittens… ala Carly… and goes nowhere

her dead like eyes… with all characters on the canvas is reeling… ???? add her monotone …. argh! brain freeze!

Liz … has that it factor…. that daytime should throne pay bucku get out of the way this lady heralds

you know ??? I really will soapbox… just how much I love to laud… Amelia Heinle… 2 time emmy winner… and yes… !!!! her 2nd emmy win… was … in fact… without… Billy Miller… she’s not so bad after all… it’s taking Billy Miller… since his debut.. this long to catch fire ???? OK.. not his fault.. just saying… I loved him on Y&R with Victoria

dang… I am bamboozled at the fan must… that he’s holding court… with; Carly, Sam… and ugh! Sonny !

thanks for the let, venting

I am in contention… that at this point… (waiting for what the new head writing team will deliver, mid-october)

I haven’t been watching…

prop and celebrate the cast… ??? I take this to heart… it’s painstaking how Michelle Stafford, Roger Howarth, Maura West… Kathleen Gati, Billy Miller, Rebecca Herbst, Tyler Christopher, Rebecca Buddig, and many more plus… are wasting

it’s so much more about missing… what isn’t

Mac and Felicia
Kevin and Laura
Scotty and Bobbi

Anna and (what a waste) the original Sloane
Traci and Paul

Nina and Franco
Ava and ???

repeating on these threads happen…

thank god I have DAYS

Patrick I always love your insightful posts. Totally love your point of view. Thank goodness for Days.

I agree that this has gone on way too long. Perhaps all the characters left in the dark about Jason’s identity were secretly labotomized or subjected to some other weird mind altering. Kind of like Little Jake with his spooky children of the corn vibe. So disturbing.

Ryan Paevey Makes Statement on Why He is Stepping Back from Acting While Being ‘Grateful to General Hospital for Giving a Green Actor a Chance’ and ‘Hallmark for Changing My Life’

GH and Hallmark fan favorite, Ryan Paevey (ex-Nathan West) wanted to clear the air after numerous reports and rumors had him quitting acting altogether and what that meant for any future projects in Hollywood he may have had planned.

Paevey released an exclusive statement to Heavy.com where he shared what is going on in his life. Back on June 19th, Ryan deactivated his Twitter and Facebook accounts and he may have deactivated his Instagram account on Friday as well, or as of this writing.

For Ryan, the decision to change his current life’s trajectory came after a series of events; chief among them moving closer to home to take care of his ailing mother who is battling lung cancer and social media scammers.

Here is what Ryan shared: “Hey everyone…so first and foremost, I am a bit apprehensive that I even have to make a statement like this. I am certainly accustomed to a certain degree of gossip, but the past few weeks in particular have gotten out of control with speculation from third parties that have taken my words and expanded upon them to meet their narrative, or flat out misrepresented my words or misconstrued their meaning. I have always been an open book, and one who speaks his mind truthfully and directly, and it is unfortunate that we live in a world where social media makes it very easy to twist one’s words; I am often unaware it is even happening until someone from my team messages me in a panic, and so I feel it best to make a formal statement through HEAVY.”

GH’s Dominic Zamprogna Opens Up on Concerns that Dante Was A-Goner: “There’s Any Number of Ways Comas Can Go”

When Detective Dante Falconeri was shot by a Pikeman henchman, and Jason (Steve Burton) was revealed alive and well, it put actor Dominic Zamprogna in a coma, and a bad one in soap terms, at that. For awhile there, it was touch and go for Dante.

The good news is Dante pulled through and is now back to his old self, and just in time for Dominic Zamprogna’s 15th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, which is June 22nd.

Dominic spoke to Soap Opera Digest on his milestone, and reflected back on the fan response from earlier this year when it may have appeared he was exiting the show for a second time.

Zamprogna shared, “It’s nice to hear you say that people were worried about me – when I went into Frank’s (Valentini, EP, GH) office and he told me I was going into a coma, I started to worry about me (laughs)!”

From working on GH for a decade and a half now, Zamprogna has seen his fair share of comas, and in fact, his then on-screen wife, Lulu Spencer Falconeri was written off the show having never awakened from her coma.

“There’s any number of ways comas can go,” said the popular GH star. “People joke, ‘Oh, you’ve got easy work.’ And it’s like, ‘Yeah, as long as it’s an on-screen coma! I don’t want to be in an off-screen coma, because then I’m not on the show!” But honestly, that means the world because we all care what people think about us, you know? And if people are happy to have me around, it feels good, obviously. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t.”

So, are you glad that Dante is still alive and kicking? Did you think the show might write-off Dante after he was shot a few months back? Is it time, as Dominic head towards his 20th anniversary with the soap opera, for the powers-that-be to bring Lulu out of her coma? Should Dante and Sam (Kelly Monaco) eventually tie the knot?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mac Comes Home

You probably needed the hankies during today’s Wednesday, June 19th episode of General Hospital, for it marked the return of fan favorite John J. York to his role as Mac Scorpio.

This was to be York’s first episode back on-screen since he underwent treatment for two blood cancers and revealed his health diagnosis and battle publicly back in September of 2023.

The scenes involving Mac gave viewers all the feels, and it looked as if reality and the soap blurred, especially in York’s scenes with his on-screen children, Maxie (who Max raised) and grandchildren, Georgie, James, and Bailey Louise, and wife, Felicia (Kristina Wagner).

Since Mac was out of town supposedly down in South America helping a ‘friend’, some things have changed, including Spinelli (Bradford Anderson). having moved in with Maxie and the kids, to which Mac does not disapprove.

In the meantime, Cody (Josh Kelly) is a man in conflict when he has second thoughts about not telling Mac he is his biological son.  When James shows up Maxie’s with Cody in tow, he lays his eyes upon the just-arrived-back-in-town Mac. The two share pleasant “hellos.” Later, back at the Quartermaine stables, Cody tells Tracy (Jane Elliot) the long and winding road story of not knowing who is father was for most of his life. Cody shares he finally found his father in Port Charles, but his father doesn’t know he has a son. Tracy thinks Cody now has a chance to re-set some things and should come clean.

Meanwhile, Felicia keeps getting calls from Maxie while she is work at General Hospital and does not pick up. So, Felicia is unaware that her husband is back. Eventually, Felicia arrives at Maxie’s and is in for a big surprise when Mac appears and the two hug and share a kiss.

After the episode aired, and seeing the reaction from GH fans, John J. York took to his account on X. York expressed, “WOW!!! I’m just so humbled by your warm, kind and gracious words as Mac returned to PC! Your support has been monumental! I have a feeling, things are about to get interesting!”

So, what did you think about Mac’s homecoming on GH? Were you touched just seeing John J. York back in action on the ABC soap opera? Comment below.
