Patient Six Reveals Himself As Jason To Sonny & They Hug It Out, As Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Bring Their Undeniable Connection Back To GH!

Courtesy/ABC

For decades, General Hospital viewers watched the dangerous escapades of best buds, Jason and Sonny.  In real life, Steve Burton (Patient Six) has always mentioned in interviews and in social media, how much Maurice Benard (Sonny) has been an undeniable force in his life as a mentor and good friend.

On Wednesday’s episode, and after five years, Burton and Benard shared scenes together, as Patient Six/”Jason” and Sonny. In story, Sonny and Patient Six are armed and hold guns on one another at Sonny’s safe house.  Sonny asks him who he is, and Patient Six claims he is Jason.  Sonny asks where he’s been if he’s Jason, because five years is a very long time to be away from his loved ones.

That is when Patient Six reveals it hasn’t felt like five years to him, and that all he knows is he woke up in a Russian clinic after being drugged and held captive.  He feels it’s been just a few months since he is been away from Port Charles, yet when he came back everything has changed. Six reveals that the clinic is where he met Ava Jerome (Maura West), and that he attempt to reach out to Sonny by calling him.

Six explains to Sonny he has no idea who kept him captive, and who perpetrated all of this on him, but that Ava did help him escape. Next, an emotional Six reveals he came back to Port Charles only to find Sam (Kelly Monaco) with another guy who is going by the name of Jason Morgan (Billy Miller).  He goes over all his moves once he got back to Port Charles, including finding out Sam is married to some guy that everyone thinks is him.  Six goes on to say that he was filled in by Ava that the guy had reconstructive surgery. Sonny informs Six it is more complicated. There is DNA proof and scans from before “Jason’s” surgery showing his old face.  Six pleads to Sonny that he is the real Jason!

Things get emotional when Six begs Sonny to believe him.  He goes so far as to say says that he would never have left Sonny willingly, or turned his back on him to start a media company.  He disappeared after he was shot in the back and was presumed dead.  Sonny puts down his gun, and says he believes he is Jason, and extends his arm for a handshake.  Next, Sonny and Jason share a hug; both with tears welling up it their eyes.

So, what did you think of the “Jason” and Sonny reunion? Do you think Six will be the real Jason or will he be Drew, the twin? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

The reunion was great ! He HAS To be Jason.. I Don’t think fans will accept anything else. I like the current Jason too but Steve is it !

Jason is the true love of Sonny’s life.

I’m sure many commenters here threw up just a little bit when Six called Sonny his brother. He’ll find out off screen what Sonny did to his actual brother, as if that matters.

AND….they should just go there FFS a d leave Carly and Mumbles out of it.

Let them open a B&B, maybe a Tapas bar and live the life they were meant to live. Jason is the only one who can stabilize St Sonny from his moods and So NY is the only one who doesn’t mind the thirty year parade of black tees.

You do you, boys! You do you!

Jason hated AJ I thought he was the one who killed him when Billy Warlick was in the part! The real Jason only cared about Lila he might throw Monica a bone now and then but he never showed affection after the accident.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Awwww, was Six ‘cold’ to Monica, Kay? Did he show affection to everyone else? ‘Stonecold’ is a harsh word, and since I did not know Jason1, I assumed he was icy to everyone.
I am not seeing that frigidity in Six. All I see is pain in his eyes…..a man whose emotions are kept at bay through contolled will-power.
But, human, nonetheless. I like Six….I like what I see; even his loyalty to Sonny, albeit I don’t like it, I admire that in a person.

Initially after the accident, Jason bonded with Ned, but that went away after he found out Ned covered for AJ. Jason also maintained a close relationship with Emily.

I don’t think Jason was so black and white.
I agree with Shay when she described him as not registering.

I never thought he lost all feeling, but that he was caught up in a distorted view of himself and his role on life due to his trauma.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Oh, yeah, Steve. The irony stings. Brother, my, uhmm ….backside.
Did I not say it eould be puke-worthy.
Of course, the first meeting, after five years had to be with Sonny. Oh, wait….I can answer that. Six is protecting his womenfolk?? I guess it does make sense to see Sonny first, considering Fric and Frac are after him. Six needs the savior’s help.

Shay
Guest

@CeeCee….As far as Jason’s regards for Monica, I wouldn’t go so far as to call them cold, so much as “non-registering.” He came off like a cyborg, just a total blank slate where feelings should have been present, but they hadn’t been programmed in…it’s as if there were a “vacancy” sign flashing in place of his emotions.

Right again Celia. Plus it gave Sonny a chance to trash newJason with barbs like, “this guy may have good intentions but he just isn’t you.” THIS GUY? Would that be the guy who’s saved your life or risked his own for you how many times? Sonny is both ignorant and ungrateful.

I gagged a little during this scene. Maybe it’s because we just had the same scene play out when “Jason” returned as Billy Miller. I don’t know why countless regimes think that viewers love and appreciate these two and the “bond” they share. Sonny robbed Jason of his life!!! I wish ONE single writer with any sort of clarity or moral compass would be allowed into the writers room at GH so us LONGTIME, REAL fans of this show could get some pay off too!

The only two people who ever robbed Jason of his life were:

1) AJ the drunken idiot – when he bashed Jason’s head into a tree in a speeding car, forcing him to lose all memory of his previous life.

2) Faison – when he shot Jason, kicked him into the harbor, and then apparently fished him out and shipped him off to Russia where he was drugged and held hostage for the past five years, during which an impostor took over his life.

Good post, Jovin. I agree with most of what you said.But I’ve had a love/hate relationship with Sonny and Jason. If I DIDN’T know their history I’d say it truly was a great BRO romance. But knowing the history, watching them together from the beginning of their journey for years…it is beyond despicable how Sonny molded Jason’s devoid-of emotional-attachment, rebellious mind (after the accident) into his right hand man. In a sense, what he did was no different than what Helena did to “Jake”…programming him to be a hit man. The irony is Sonny and Carly actually love Jason yet… Read more »

Agreed, Jovin. And how about Sonny’s disloyalty to new Jason, referring to him as “this guy” who “just isn’t you”. Didn’t Billy/Jason just risk his life for Sonny again on the bridge, for the umpteenth time? Does anyone ever question Sonny’s ingratitude and disloyalty?

Rebecca1
Guest

Soaphound…I couldn’t agree more! I noticed that too…”this guy”, etc. Whoever Billy Miller’s character is…he’s risked his life for Sonny over and over again since he’s been in their lives. The man was just in a coma because he accompanied Sonny to a meeting…and he went with him AGAIN when Sonny got the note, ready to put himself at risk again, AFTER saying he was done with the business and could no longer take any risks… Although it’s been said over and over again that all three, Sonny, Carly and Sam felt that Jason was “different” than they remember him,… Read more »

I am really enjoying this story, but it would really truly suck if Patient Six isn’t really Jason. And I don’t even particularly like the character. 🙂 Let Jason be Jason and let the other one be Drew. I’ promise as a fan to hand wave any inconsistencies from what we know about Billy Miller’s Jason and just move on.

i hope the show doesn’t try to complicate things and do a switch out and have steve burton be drew and billy miller the ‘real’ JASON, lets just have it play out as it is right now, as for the reunion with steve and maurice, i felt both actors were so real in that embrace/hug, you could tell it was real, i feel the show is on a roll right now. great job everyone.

I should hope such will not be the case this time around though…in order for this tale to truly resonate, it must be logical and plausible…not tortured and completely nonsensical like the “Clusterfluke” debacle proved to be….

@Shay.
Hey, Shay….really quickly, here….going “trick or treating”..,,..
Are we to believe that Patient Six is an experiment? Did I understand that correctly?
Also, by today’s episode, Andre and Klein are not killers….they have a heart? No matter….they are still doing something illegal.
Perhaps, I wasn’t too far out when I said Valentin was involved or knew something? Is Patient Six Nicholas, afterall, as I, and others thought?
The Experiment: reconstructive surgery and transplantation of original Jason’s brain into Patient Six? Alas…I don’t know what I’m saying. LOL. Getting frustrated, amica cara.

It’s just as I feared. Burton is the almighty Jason and Sonny will make Billy Miller’s Jason an enemy and interloper, despite his saving Sonny’s life multiple times. We know the facts don’t support that, as Jake Doe had no desire to be Jason. But they’ll probably forget that and shaft Billy just so the favorite child Burton gets his way. I’m one step closer to abandoning this mess, but I hope–faintly–that someone will keep a cool head and place the blame where it belongs…Andre or Helena or whoever.

It’s a soap, yeah….a dash of reality is appreciated now and then. Methinks the child-play is ‘discordant’—Grow up, I say. Silly. I am not into that much age difference between lovers, married or not.

Well, for me age is all relative. Sometimes it really does matter and sometimes it does not. For instance, I just feel Ava is too old for Griffin. This isn’t based on any knowledge of Maura West’s chronological age, but on the way the woman carries herself–mannerisms, boxy body language, her over all presence. But here’s the rub–I don’t think Anna is too old for Griffin or for Finn for that matter and Finola Hughes is about ten years older than Maura West. I think it’s because Anna has this eternal sense of coolness about her. I can’t really put… Read more »

I also love how art imitates life more and more in soaps. FINALLY women are dating younger men…as men have always done. And soaps are reflecting it. Ironically, Will DeVry and Alexis .have a similar age difference with his real life relationship. He’s 49 and his long-time live-in girlfriend, actress Rebecca Staab, is 56. And now Laura Wright, 47, is dating 40-year-old Wes Ramsey. Now let’s solidify the ties between Finn and Anna! (he’s so much more alive and attractive with her than Hayden; never felt the chemistry between those two.)

You are entitled to say anything you you feel, Patrick….it is your opinion, my friend—-express it without reservation.
I go off the perimeters, unabashedly, at times, but I am cut off at the knees—and so I should be. But, nothing you say crosses any boundary.
I love your comments–whether I agree or not.
However, I agree….Finn and Anna are a wash for me……nonetheless, you know the soap gods are going there.
I am waiting for the day Hayden returns with Finn’s kid.

Hey, Harry. I agree with you in theory. I don’t think it’s that Maura (the actress) looks older…it’s her Ava persona. Very sophisticated, the way she holds her drink, that femme fatale aura. It’s also the way her character dresses. Anna’a always seen in very casual clothes..very hip, casual. Ava’s always in a tight dress (who wears those anymore??? So, it’s more the “image.” Where I DO think the actual look of the two people involved was really too difficult for me to get passed is Kristina/Parker. Not because of the years between them. It’s just that Lexi looks 12.… Read more »

Yes, Rebecca, the martini swirling Ava presence–that’s it exactly. She’s kind of a throwback to the 1940’s cinema dame. Think Barbara Stanwyck meets Lana Turner. I have grown to appreciate Maura West.
I do love Finn and Anna. They look like siblings and Finola Hughes is such a gifted actress she pulls of looking confused and surprised that she’s actually experiencing real attraction for the man.
I swear Finola Hughes would have chemistry with a Chia pet.

To add; This time Helena is Not involved.. People need to think out of the box. Too many are holding onto history what was, not what now is. Helena never gave Sonny or his people a thought and that includes Sam’s husband Jason. They were nothing to Helena. What/who was in the Cassidine clinic on ice was not Jason, but to be a Jason. Why? a Cassidine soldier, a he-man, but most likely not actually Jason.

She cursed Sam but piddly stuff still never gave her notice of Jason.
This is whole different game and not Helenas..

AND–If I am wrong you can give me a nuggy LOL ..

Me, and 3 friends have passed the word, Franco is a Quartermain twin, we are the Only ones that have come to that conclusion, the only ones that believe it, and we are telling it. eventho nobody believes us LOL !

Let me state, for the record, that Helena Cassidine is back in Hell where she belongs. We’re not letting her escape again. Now that doesn’t mean she didn’t collaborate with Faison and/or her former brother in law Victor at some point during the last 5 years, because they were holding Drew as a popsicle in that other clinic, and told Robin that he was Jason in order to thaw him out, along with Helena & Stavros. But when the investigation into the Russian clinic begins, they won’t find Helena at the end of that road. And they won’t find Victor,… Read more »

Hey su…I think it’s a good theory…and I would have loved Franco to have been a Quartermaine back when he and everyone else thought he was. But, Steve Burton’s Jason and Billy Miller’s Burton have the same DNA and when Spinelli did a facial recognition (or whatever he did to try to reconstruct Jake/Jason’s “before” look) he came up with Jason (Steve Burton’s face. I think.) So, to say it again…it’s a soap, LOL, so maybe all these things were tampered with and the DNA and the face really belongs to Franco. Could be. I’m open to all possibilities!

Hey, su, Thanks for the synopsis. You were the only one to agree with me…or vice versa…when I/ we said Franco was one of the twins. Drew was not his little childhood frien, but his brother. His character is too enmeshed in this story, for Franco not to be a very significant part of the plot/story. On the other hand, am I to understand that Jason1and Jason2 ‘were’ identical, when switched? Therefore, because of Billy’s Jason altered face ( reconstructive surgery), he looks different. I think this makes the most sense because of the DNA match ( the variable is… Read more »

You were right, su. Helena is not involved.
BUT—I was right about the memories. If you read my comment, way back when….I said Helena transferred Jason1’s memories into Jason2.
….only difference–it was not by Helena’s hand but by Andre’s.
Satan said Helena is in hell—always trust Satan, LOL. If that’s not the best example of an oxymoron, I don’t know what is.
No brain transplantation, as I recently claimed, I guess. Just memories, as I originally thought.
Another mistake we both made, was thinking Franco was the twin. So, is Franco who he really is, or “something” else?

Suoo, you know what really cracks me up? Whenever a character has to explain something implausible or inexplicable, they say one word, “Helena.”

Steve Burton is the real Jason Morgan and was Drew as a kid. Billy Miller is imposter Jason Morgan and was Jason Quartermaine as a kid. Their personalities totally match that scenario. They are identical twins with Alan Quartermaine being their father, their dna will prove that. Sam will choose Jason Quartermaine (Billy Miller) cuz he’s safest for her family. Franco is of no relation but shared a few years as a kid with Drew (steve burton). I can’t see how people think Helena has no involvement with jason.

Hi Rebecca-
About the DNA match.
Carly had B/Jason’s sample run against Stone cold’s DNA in the criminal records database from when Jason was arrested back before he died.
Whomever went to all trouble to have everyone believe their Jason was thee Jason so they most certainly would have erased Stone Cold’s DNA and inserted Billy/Jason’s DNA in the criminal records database .
They knew a DNA test would be requested, of course.

My hair hurts.
Will the real Jason Morgan please stand up? Dee, if one of the Jasons starts sporting a Christmas sweater around the holiday season, I guess we will have our answer as to which Jason is Stonecold and which Jason is Jason Q.
I think your theory will turn out to be true. That is, Burton’s Jason is Stonecold and Miller’s Jason is Jason Quartermain and they were switched after AJ wrapped their car around the tree.

All the fuss Sonny was making to Burton that they had the DNA test done on Miller and it was a match for Jason. You know everyone will say the same thing. New DNA tests will prove Burton & Miller to be identical twins. Then they will say they don’t know who Jake and Danny’s father is, cuz they’re both a match with the same DNA , with apparently similar brain damage.

When Burton was announced as coming back to the show, I suggested the switch took place after the 90’s car accident with AJ. What makes sense (I know this is a soap) is are two switches, first with AJ, then after the Faison incident.

Frank and Shelly have said there would be nine months of story around Burton’s return. Everyone could assume Miller is Andrew, but after some therapy with Kevin, he’d start to regain childhood memories of Jason Quartermaine. Burton, who is Andrew, gained his defense/fighting ability after being bullied as a toddler by Franco.

@CeeCee….The only thing that gives me great pause to consider for a fraction of a second that Steve Burton’s character may not be the original Stonecold is the intensity with which the actor is playing his role. One can see the raw emotion in his eyes and palpably sense the deep anguish in his soul, and that was so not a part of Burton’s original repertoire when he previously played Jason. Then there was a flatness and almost complete lack of human warmth or passion with his character, even around those he loved. Whilst he was nearly automaton-like in his… Read more »

@Shay. Amazing post, Shaybelle….your words come alive, as you speak of Steve’s Jason. Automaton is the perfect description–robotic, detached…..lack of human warmth, as you say, is an apt illustration of his persona as old Jason, and to a certain extent, Dylan. Yes, this change from stonecold to affable demeanor could very well be due to a newfound skill of emoting from within, thus displaying his artistry genuinely and connecting with the viewer. But, if Jason1 is not exhibiting the characteristcs of the true, “unmoving” sort of thug; then neither is Jason2. I have yet to see Billy’s Jason not show… Read more »

Thank you so much, mia amica! You know I am a very tough customer when it comes to truly being moved by any soap performance these days, so when one actually merits such praise in my estimation, it certainly isn’t going to be of the faint variety! Compared to his waning moments as the classic anti-Q when many a poster here opined that Steve Burton was merely “phoning it in” and going through those old, familiar Stonecold motions, this newly-minted version of “Jason Morgan?” has been incredibly and forcefully emotive, yet still suitably restrained, in his evocation of those barely-below-the-surface… Read more »

I was going to say “this isn’t your grandmother’s soap” but, in a sense, it is!

That was a truly satisfying and moving moment, Harry! As the ultimate “outsider” who was watching another man assuming his life— complete with his wife!—the stark solitude of Burton’s character lurking above the merriment, along with his painful realization that the long 5-year battle to reclaim what he unwillingly left behind was not yet over but has really only just begun, was unbelievably poignant and heart-rending, although at the same time, hopeful and exciting, as we viewers were left filled with anticipation for come what may….

Believe me, it has been a laborious process for me watching these two day in and day out. I have acido on a daily basis, LOL. I cannot say the same for “Stonecold” because I do not know him, yet. Perhaps none of you does either, since the aspect of his character was not perceived favorably, by some. In other words–Six may have dropped the one-dimensional countenance of old. So far so good for me…..awaiting with… Read more »

A BROMANCE GONE WOLD! It was nice. Sonny and and Jason had tears in their eyes. I know exactly what will happen. Jason will lay low in the safe house and Sonny cannot say anything to Carly or Sam because they are in danger. So far, so good!

For years I have been lamenting about the Jason and Sonny bromance and how it swallowed up the show. So who would thunk I would be all giddy with excitement upon seeing the Sonny and Jason reunion? They do have a powerful chemistry, something I never saw before.
But I have one question–did Jason lift up his right foot when Sonny embraced him?

Harry…Not so sure I was giddy, but touched. Like you I saw the powerful chemistry between Jason and Sonny, and probably the spillover between Steve and Maurice as friends and actors. And once again Steve was able to show he can be more than a monotone actor, just like he did when he ended his run on Y&R. Just a thought…if Steve B/Jason/Patient 6 is the real StoneCold Jason, it was his money that Billy/Jason used to buy out what is now Aurora. It must have been a huge amount that he stashed away at least 5 years ago. Forgot… Read more »

@Harry…I’ve never really envisioned you as the “giddy” type!!! To me, that word is best exemplified in all those “Julexis Junkies” who are over the moon and besides themselves with unfettered glee that their sex-obsessed golden couple is apparently primed and ready for a new round of unremitted ruttings. You know, whilst squeeing with rapture all the way??? Now THAT’S giddy! (And so not you….)

Ha–well, I am not, nor have I ever been, a member of the Julexis-Giddy-Junky Club.
On another note, I was really irritated with Nina trying to insert her awkward self into the Jason story last Friday. Lizzy gets shot and is stoic and brave and Nina is marching around trying to make it all about her.
She still doesn’t fit and as to paraphrase OJ Simpson’s Dream Team, if she doesn’t fit, she must quit.

Harry…just the fact that you quoted ANYTHING OJ you lost credibility! Nina was a “tad” freaked, but then again Liz has a lot more experience in hostage situations, Cassadine kidnappings, boyfriends and friends getting kidnapped and has seen quite a few gunshots. Nina, by comparison, has only ripped a child from its womb. LOL. And she was obviously very worried for Liz and tried to help. Go easy on Nina… 😉 Julexis-Giddy-Junky Club? Don’t lump over-zealous fans of this couple in with us “moderates” who simply like the two together. Many don’t see passion between two consulting adults as a… Read more »

I think they’re both “winters” so they need to avoid pastels and creams. As long as they stick to rich jewel tones they should be fine!

Can Heather officiate? (Any reason for pages for Heather works for me.). Luke could give away St Sonny and Cousin Ned do the same for Stone Cold.

I suggest the weeding party wear bedazzled black tees.

Agreed! Don’t know if it was an acting choice on MB’s part, but it was also the first scenes shared by these real life friends in 5 years. While I’m not a fan of the Sonny/Jason focus of the show, let’s give it all we’ve got in those scenes.

this was great for a soap opera “back from the dead” moment! LOL…no one blinked twice when Finn walked in with Silas’s face…barely anyone flinched when AJ returned from the dead…Robin returned from the dead…(Elizabeth and Robin were great friends and I don’t even remember if they went for coffee! LOL). It’s just a “hey, wow! you’re alive? wow! glad you’re back!” kinda thing. I don’t recall anyone dropping dead from shock and awe when they all thought Billy Miller as Jason returned. At least this reunion got to me emotionally…thanks to Steve Burton’s fantastic rendering of a lost man… Read more »

You are so right about that one, Fanny! Drawing upon decades of (soap) history definitely has an advantage when it comes to winning over the hearts and minds of viewers—especially those of the longtime variety—and given that concept has been in such seriously short supply for far too long on GH, this storyline is something that has actually resonated for many of us who have been emotionally-starved with all the newbies and nonsensical plots of the past few years. It’s exactly what we’ve been requesting for seemingly an absolute age, and finally our wish has been granted, well, at least… Read more »

Hi Shay,
I will readily admit to being frontline and center in wanting to rid GH
of “it’s useless baggage”. It took Frank Loooooonnnnngggggg enough
to finally listen, read & hear “US”. Don’t get me wrong… GH still has
some dust bunnies hiding in plain sight that need to be swept away….
Hopefully in due time……before it’s too late… Frank can honestly assess
what and who is working for the better good of the show…
Steve Burton is a GREAT start ‼️‼️

Hello again, my “Fair Fanny!” So nice to see you back here with such vim and vigor, although “dust bunnies” is far too kind a description for much of what still currently clutters the GH canvas! However, I suppose one must take the good with the bad and the sublime with the ridiculous! And how sweetly sublime has our Mr. Burton’s return been? Quite! Kudos to the thrills and chills this actor has brought with his much-heralded and welcome return to Port Charles! As for the ridiculous? Well, I’ll just leave that to everyone’s own individual imagination since that is… Read more »

Is anyone else totally sickened by Sonny’s statement to Burton/Jason yesterday? Oh, the new Jason (“this guy”) ‘has good intentions but he isn’t you.’ That would be the guy who has risked his life repeatedly for you (just the day before, in fact) and for Carly and who saved your life when you were shot two years ago? And Carly with her “Jason’s just not the same” whining. Is ANYTHING enough for the King and Queen of Port Charles? God forbid Jason is tired of being target practice for Sonny’s enemies. I’m up to here with the insulting way they… Read more »

You said a mouthful, Soaphound! Isn’t Sonny and Carly’s typically self-centered way of looking at everything awfully precious? It always comes down to how it affects them and their needs, desires and convenience….forget about the “other people” involved. They simply want what they want, when they want it, and that’s the end of the story….not having their own “personal concierge/protector” version of Jason over these past five years has been such a heavy burden for them to bear! No wonder Sonny is elated to have his “real” Stonecold back after all the tough sacrifices he and the spouse have had… Read more »

What if Sonny’s ‘Stonecold’ is not Stonecold? I know….I know….

One of our fellow-posters said that was definitely unlikely….so, I shut up about it. I also remarked on the fact that Franco must have a very significant part in this ‘web’, which seems to be expanding. Is it possible for Susan and Alan to be… Read more »

Exactly Soaphound and Shay, to hell with anyone that stands in the way of the Dimpled Don and his sidekicks. NuJason risked his life and the sake of his family, just the day before, on the pier. Now, that the real Jason is back, Sonny is urging him to go and break-up Nu’s marriage and family. The Dimpled Don and all of his sidekicks are text book narcissists. Furthermore, the PCPD are all made to look like idiots during these crisis episodes. It’s laughable. As much as I like Steve Burton, I am not looking forward to his reunion with… Read more »

Oh yes, dmr!…We are sure to be treated to plenty of Sonny and Carly’s supremely-skewed view of their own self-importance during the coming months of the “Two Q’s” twin mystery. Whilst the true victims of this tale, Jason and “Drew,” will be coming to terms with their own evolving future roles in Port Charles society, you can be rest assured that every minute development will be thoroughly examined through the prism of how it will affect “The Corinthi.” First and foremost….always and forever! As for Sam, I’ll take her monotonous whisperings any day over Carly’s constant bellowing and Sonny’s glazed-over… Read more »

Since it’s anybody’s guess with good theories abut who is who, I’m going to offer up mine. And after all the brain, facial surgeries, accidents and Helene’s brainwashing over the years it would seem reasonable to me that nothing’s “carved in stone” forever. Especially in soaps. Did Sonny originally help shape Jason Q into the StoneCold we all know. Yes..He was the “right man” at the right time to do this, and it was not an evil thing in his line of work. But I’m thinking Patient 6 Jason has new influences, kindnesses, and helping hands in his life this… Read more »

I”m wondering a few things…do you remember because I don’t… Did Heather, Scott and Franco have DNA tests to prove they’re actually mother, father, son? Scott was married to Susan Moore at one time. Susan is Jason’s mother. Maybe Franco is Susan and Scotty’s son? It also dawned on me, after reading the history…that Heather Weber and Susan Moore were cousins. So if Franco isn’t the twin to be revealed, he is still Jason and Drew’s cousin! (It was never mentioned that they’re related!) So, Scotty has been with Heather and Susan…maybe Scott’s the father of the twins and they’re… Read more »

I wasn’t watching back in the Susan Moore days so I took your lead and did a history search on her. She really got herself involved with key players, any of whom could be related to the Jasons…Scotty, Alan Q, Monica, Heather. Then there’s the lady who Franco thinks is his real mom. She’s a mystery. Not sure how she fits in, but she still seems afraid of repercussions after all of these years, and is still withholding info about who belongs with who. Even Scotty seems to know more than he wants to talk about. And even eluded to… Read more »

For him to marry the insane woman who tried to have his great love burned at the stake?

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Mark Lawson Shares Heartfelt Sentiments As He Exits General Hospital

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.

So, are you sad that Dustin is no longer on the canvas in Port Charles? Will you miss Mark in the role? Comment below.
