I hate Jason. He treated his son like trash, he enjoys killing more than being a father. He should’ve kept his aging face away from that hospital and in Carly’s ass where it belongs.

its not Jason fault he didnt want to be with Elizabeth
She should have shared the child

Jason could have chosen to co-parent with Liz if he didn’t want to be with her.. she didn’t have to be included to be with his son to be a parent.

Elizabeth is the one that insisted and constantly told Jason over and over that his life is too dangerous to be around Jake

Jason loved Liz and Jake. He wanted to marry Liz but then Michael got shot and Jason got scared, which was completely understandable. Heck, even Carly kept Sonny from his sons many times because of the mob.
But Elizabeth is right, Jason chose to walk away from his little boy (while he raised Michael for how many years?). Elizabeth and Lucky are the ones that really lost a son. Rebecca and Jonathon gave emmy wiinning performances so did Steve.
If Carly killed Jason’s kid, I hope he goes scary on her!

jason left his son cause he didnt want him to get hurt from jason being in the mob so its not his fault.

Me too..it’s time for Jason to think of HIS life for a change. Sam makes him happy so he needs to take their relationship to a higher level. They are both beyond “boyfriend/girlfriend” crap. I just hope the rumors are true that he is going to ask her to marry him! Liz did not want to co-parent with Jason, in fact, she didn’t want Jason anywhere near Jake so he did what she asked of him. End of story.

What a pack of crock is been spew about GH, it is the worst show now killing Jake so that mob mistress could have a child is crude and TPTB will see it when the ratings drop and the Liason fan goes to another station and give their ratings to CBS or NBC. I haven’t watch GH since 2008 and has been looking at CBS and NBC. Jason is all about his mob family and never wanted a family with Liz because he wouldn’t be able to smell Carly’s Ass so GH can be canel and I will dance on… Read more »

WOW! So your saying that in order to be with Liz Jason should have quit his job and give up his best friend? Why couldn’t Liz quit her job and become more of a part of his life style? As for Jason never wanting a family with Liz, in the beginning of course he didn’t, it was one drunken night of sex that was not planned, they weren’t in a relationship or in love with each other but he did want to try but she kept saying his life was too dangerous for Jake to be in but they could… Read more »

Um because Liz is a nurse and Jason is a murderer? See, when you have kids you stop murdering people and hanging around the whore that wanted the kid dead. So yeah, Jason should have CHANGED. When you have a child you either grow the hell up or you’re a douche bag for life. Jason is the latter, and he and the mob whore who bring in the lowest ratings in GH history will sink this show as Frons continues to try ANYTHING to make them work including firing a better actress with a bigger fanbase and killing a child.… Read more »

Jake was a mistake, will you Liason fans remember that-PLEASE! And Sam, A Mob Whore? Ahhh….Really!!! Liz is the one who had 3 kids by 3 different guys and she has had more paternity tests then I can even remember! She’s a freakin cheater and a way bigger liar and manipulator than Sam has ever been on this show! I know these are all mute points, being that Jason is… Read more »

100% agree. When I think back to the BJ/Maxie story, it was the opposite…not the greatest acting (Not to say it was bad in any way, just not as good as these actors) but the storyline, the directing and vision was SOO much more powerful. I can still cry instantly when I think of Felicia falling to her knees when she realizes its BJ’s heart or when I think of Tony listening to his daughters heart beating inside Maxie…wow. Nothing will ever compare to that storyline.

I hope this s/l does make Jason reevaluate his life. I understand he loves his friendship with carly but is that the only friendship Steve Burton will ever acknowledge. Because I was sure Jason and Elizabeth were friends way before Jake came into the picture and I am postive that she has been their for him even when Carly betrayed him. So is it that he doesn’t acknowledge Liz and Jason’s friendship on purpose or because he doesn’t want to piss off JaXXX fans. He has more chemistry with Becky than anyone else on the show. I am hoping he… Read more »

Sam jumped out of the window of a building with Jake and stopped him from being blown up! I think she also demonstrated her remorse for what she did to Jake in the past by being prepared to fend off a Russian mobster without bullets at the cabin and giving Liz the gun with bullets to protect her sons and telling Liz to make a run for it, Jake is now dead because Liz was preoccupied with finding out who her latest baby daddy is…deja vu anyone…..so Jake is now dead and neither Jason or Sam can be blamed for… Read more »

Ok a little revisit in history here because as much as people claimed that the Russians was after Jason they followed XXX to Liz’s house why would she even go there.. but hey she is supper spy right.. She saved Jake because she wanted to get back in Jason’s good graces.. and ON what planet did she ever show remorse to who Jason not even they didn’t talk about it.. She didn’t show it to Liz..

Seriously! Sam has never said she wanted Jake dead. She made a horrific choice during a breakdown and will always be regretful and has appologized many times to all of them for her actions, but lets not forget that Liz went over to where Cam was and turned her back on her baby long enough for Maureen to approach, look around, pick up Jake and then walk off with him; and don’t forget Sam is the one that got Jake and her medical attention after her house fire and Joe had taken over the ER, she convinced him to let… Read more »

Michael. I loved your Steve Burton interview.He is so likeable and fun, and shows his sense of humor which you never see on GH. I am surprised at all the fan bashing of Jason, Liz , Carly, etc. If you want to see something redeeming look at Jonathan Jackson’s performances in this story. As an actor, he rises far above his cast members. I don’t believe there is a better soap actor anywhere. And, I think if any one of us were in this horrible position of your child dying and then to make the decision to donate his kidney… Read more »

Does anyone ever turn on the news and see what is going on around them. My friend’s stepdaughter, her friend and little boy were killed by a maniac. He cut up their bodies, put them in garbage bags and dropped them down a hollow tree. The only way he would tell where they were was to have the death penalty taken off the… Read more »

It wasn’t a bad interview but his all sound the same and seriously jm is going to reevaluate his life–hello you had that chance already and the ‘mob life’ is the ‘good life’ I liked jm when I 1st started watching GH but he seems to be regressing in his thinking–maybe he needs to have a CAT scan on his brain.

Great interview! Jake’s story and how it impacts Jason and Elizabeth is what brought me back to General Hospital after months of not watching. Steve Burton and Rebecca Herbst are doing an amazing job! I hope that Jake’s death will eventually lead to Jason and Elizabeth turning to each other to comfort each other and get through this, then lead them to rebuilding and being drawn back together. Something beautiful for them should come out of such a tragedy.

Well, the story has people talking. I’m not so sure it’s a good thing, but they’re talking. Notice how divided many are? Bringing up horrible and inconsistent writing for the sake of proving how the other woman is worse? How Jason either was forced by Elizabeth to leave or voluntarily became a deadbeat dad? Well, for whatever reason, Jason left and didn’t think of Jake more than a handful of times over the past 3 years. He spent time with every other child in PC, agonized over Michael to the point of obsession, but nary a thought when Elizabeth was… Read more »

Jason is going to re-evaluate his life? Well, if your son almost dying at birth along with his mother doesn’t pull your head out from under your arm pits then nothing will. How about when old Eddie Q. ran down Jake at the Carnival in 2009 right in front of Jason? How about when our little fire bug Cameron set Liz’s house on fire and Jake almost died? How about when Sam watched a crazy woman walk off with baby Jake and then hired armed thugs to point their guns at Liz, Cam and Jake? Jason is 4 1/2 years… Read more »

Are you seriously going there with the year 2005. Where was Elizabeth? That’s called Chuck Pratt’s way of keeping Liason apart to go forth with JaSam. Like they didn’t interact at all in 2005 and it was done on purpose. Because they saw that Elizabeth interaction with Jason with Journey didn’t cause Journey to take off like they hope it would have. And don’t get me started with Jake kidnapping 2, the most contrived piece of crap ever where everyone was written out of character in order for Sam to look good.

I hate that the writers came up with this storyline about killing a child! They’ve already done the transplant story with Maxie, why repeat it again??
It was gut wrenching to watch and I applaud all the characters involved. It must have been one hell of a story to do.

Rachel

As I watch Jake dying I have to remind myself that it is just television and not real. However, who the hell wrote this crap??? Why did Jake have to die for Carly’s child? All this woman has done is cause trouble while dragging Jason around on a leash. Jason needs to grow a pair and cut her loose. Since this is just t.v. I think Jason and Liz should say no to Carly. Especially as Carly has always bad mouthed Liz. Carly needs to suffer.

Oh such a great storyline by far! I believe that Steve and all the actors are doing such an awesome job and their acting skills have proven to be quite impressive with this storyline. This is a wonderful interview with Steve. So looking forward what is going to come out of this tragedy for Jason and can not wait. I’m GH stumped that I wonder why would that be. Hmmm I guess I just enjoy seeing the great story lines and good amazing actors that are on GH of course.

I love how Guza/Frons/GH will finally have Jason eevaluate his life now that his son is dead. It shouldn’t have taken him this long to do that. It should have begun when Jake was first kidnapped or when he was kidnapped a second time or when he was injured at the carnival. This drivel is so agenda driven that it reeks. Of course, we are now to believe that Jason will want to have a replacement child with con artist ex girlfriend (who watched his son get kidnapped & hired 2 goons to accost them in the park).

I think for me it appears like Jason is just having another bad day at the office. Burton isn’t really doing much more than making faces, blinking and staring which is the norm for him.

I know he can do better, but it’s been years since I have seen it.

Too bad. The writing is bad enough, the acting could have made it better and it did not.

I have to be honest. I was young when the BJ/Maxie story played and NO way is this story close. I just don’t feel for any of the characters, Not Jason, Liz, or Carly.I feel these characters caused their own problems. Jason hasn’t been the real parent only the biological parent. If he was he would have given up the mob. Carly is acting like a selfish person. Of course Joss is her daughter but she shouldn’t be above other children. Glad Jax yelled at her.

I agree in part with this but from what i’ve seen EW does blame herself–a parent will always blame themselves in a case of this nature. He got away from her that happens all the time and is probably the most realistic thing about this s/l. What would we think if she didn’t want to know who killed her child, we’d really want to lynch her then. I do agree the s/l id disjinted and thrown together.

We’ve all seen Steve shed tears during emotional scenes. Given the lightning speed at which this ‘story’ is being told, I guess I should be impressed, but I’m not. I can’t imagine why anyone thinks this redux ( a poor one at that) is anything more than a stepping stone to the real goal, a baby for Jason and Sam, without any guilt for Jason. Unfortunately, Jake didn’t need to die for that. Jason’s been living quite guilt free for years while paying more attention to other peoples children than he did to his own son.

I think that there is a pretty long line forming to smack “poor pitiful me” Liz’s face: The Spencer’s have every right to treat Liz like shit, She has spent 80% of her relationship with Lucky lying-my family would have done a lot worse by now. Sam, cuz Liz is always sniffin around Jason, Carly, just cuz she sees Liz for who she really is and hell Jason, he just needs to smack her back into reality! Elizabeth is a hot mess, she can not make any relationship work! Long live Jasam!

Liz has spent nearly half her adult life protecting that druggie, candy-striper banging, come dead-beat dad. She lied about Jake to keep Lucky from going back to licking the inside of a pill bottle. I wish she HAD told him the truth back then. Maybe he’d have OD’d and I wouldn’t have to be concerned with his loser self showing back up, claiming how much he loves his boys. Carly saw Liz as the man who stole Jason from her. When the truth is Carly saw Liz dancing with Jason (because of dead Lucky) and Carly went and did what… Read more »

The past week has solidified what I have always said about Steve Burton. He is absolutely the best actor who acts without any words. His eyes and face show all the emotions and thoughts he needs to convey to the audience. I saw him in NY at a soap show and told him that. I see an Emmy nomination and win for this story line. I can’t wait to see the rest of this story – I’m waiting with my tissues!

The reality is THIS…Jason is a douche and Jake dying doesn’t really change any of that…Of course Guza and co are hell bent on making this story solely about Jason’s pain…Screw Jason’s pain and his shrew of a BFF, Carly aka Cujo too…He doesn’t deserve to mourn that little boys life because he chose to walk away….and I don’t care what Liz said…I’m a woman and nobody could keep me from my child NOBODY!!!

That’s 100% right on…no matter what Liz said, Jason chose to walk away. He could have known his child and spent time with him. He was always just too busy running after and protecting others. Jake was a beautiful and precious little boy who Jason will never ever know, and I hope this bothers him on a daily basis until the day he closes his eyes! And I swear, Jake better not have died in vain, so that Jason and Sam could have a child together. That would turn so many stomachs, and GH would definitely lose fans and ratings.

I completely disagree. I’ve been watching the old clips of Jason & Liz when they 1st became friends. Just after Lucky “died”. They began falling in love then, all puppy-dog looks and longing. Jason laughed with her so naturally that there was a tender side rarely seen. Even AFTER Lucky came back, when she hid Jason…they LOVED each other. She stayed with Lucky from pressure and old memories. She thought he was the same guy. He NEVER was. In fact, until Jonathan Jackson came back to play him, he was an abusive jerk. Never mind that he started fights with… Read more »

I thought the acting was suburb with all the actors.
As I recall Jason gave up all rights to Jake because of his mob connections. But he did look after him from a distance and the scene with Jason and Jake playing with the motor cycle toy, in the penthouse, really played into Jason keeping the toy. Was sad to lose Jake, but hopefully this will speed the story line to end. Rest in peace.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

Then let us know, did you like how GH wove this social message into the story?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
