Will he be getting nuface or will they proceed with him always with the one he’s got and just suddenly replace old Jasons photos…or like i said Patrick will operate on Jason who will get plastic surgery and suffer from amnesia…Patrick will call him ‘Billy’ and move him into Drake home…Billy/Jason see’s Sam in Patricks arms and a flood of memories return…no one except maybe Monica believes who he is…months later Robin returns and reveals who Jason is…Jason becomes Jason Quartimaine MD, vowing to help others and never returning to his mob ways because it nearly cost him his chance to see Danny grow up…Meanwhile, Robin pregnant with Lulus and Stravos demon child and is forced to claim the child is Jasons which causes permanent split between the Drakes!!! Robins concern is she gave the baby the aids virus and is worried what Helene will do if the baby is born with hiv…just guessing!!!

Lin
Lin

I hope this will not be your scenario, (The part up to Robin reveals who Jason is) but I’m afraid you are right. The plastic surgery, amnesia, who am I, for months would hardly be worthy of what Michele Stafford called, “Miller Time” or anything exciting at all. “Who am I? Where I am? how did I get here?” for months would be fast forward time for me. I have never seen Billy Miller in any soap. I hope they will not do the obvious.

CeeCee

Great post, Lin.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I agree Lynn…i hope my guess is wrong and they reveal Jason soon but this is GH and this show is notoriuos for dragging storylines…like A.J.s for example!!!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Maybe its Liz who takes him home…

Laurie
Laurie

Is that a spoiler? I was hoping Liz would take him to her art studio. Is that still there? Deja vu. Well he is going to have to hide if Helena’s looking for him.She wouldn’t know what he looks like though. Anyway, whatever they do will be insane and unexpected and will make no sense but it will be fun and keep us tuning in!

Laurie
Laurie

Jim honey Patrick can’t work at the hospital right now. He has to be re-instated. Nina got him fired. That didn’t stop him from helping Liz today look at his x-ray or his file or something. Big hints in his prognosis too,

Connie
Connie

take that haters, I hope you all eat your words. Steve Burtons Jason can be replaced.

Lin
Lin

I agree. He left. He likes where he is. I don’t like how he lied to fans about why he was leaving, but I don’t blame him. I could see how playing Jason would get old. He did not have much of a range of things to do, wore the same clothes all the time, etc. He likes what he’s doing now. I feel he can be replaced. I just hope we’re not in for months of “Who am I? Where am I? Where was I? and plastic surgery so that no one knows who he is. Then Robin returns and even she doesn’t know. I hope they won’t do that.

connie
connie

Well the plastic surgery is coming. I just hope everyone finds out who he is before Steve decides to come back lol

Laurie
Laurie

Yes there is no need to drag it out. Every show from now on needs to be as fun and fast-paced as today. Am I wishing too much?

My belief is he will remove those bandages in about 2 weeks and will be having flashbacks of Jason soon. Jason who, I don’t know. I kinda am pulling for Jason Q and making so he can fall in love with whomever all over again. That would kind of be hard to imagine all of his old memories w/Sam and Liz and others being gone.

I really love this though. Please kick it into super high gear Cartini and let’s get rolling and have some fun!!

Steve Burton Didn’t Lie to the fans! He never wanted to leave GH, he simply wanted to work part tim hours so he could live in Tennesee with his family…his agent told GH, let’s make a new deal…and GH never did. So he left, and 6 months later was offered a chance at those part time hours on Y&R playing a great character, Dylan. Steve didn’t say all this when it happened because he didn’t want to throw anyone under the bus or make someone look bad at GH/ABC. Billy Miller is a great actor but GH offered him the chance to have time off for other projects when needed so I really don’t understand why they didn’t offer that time off to Steve! Anyway, one day in the future Steve Burton will play Jason Morgan on GH again, he said he would welcome a return one day. Steve Burton can’t be replaced, he played Jason for 21 years and was the only actor to play the role. He made the character a soap Icon. I just hope Billy Miller is able to have a smooth transition into the character and do the role justice, he certainly has the talent to do so!

harry

Who are the haters? I haven’t read one negative comment about Billy Miller. Everybody loves the guy so your aggressive admonishment makes no sense. I am really tired of the overuse and misuse of the word “hater.”

connie
connie

First of all, I don’t normally use the word hater, because it sounds stupid but it fits this. It’s obvious you aren’t in any GH groups because the one I’m In on Facebook, they are seriously bashing BM because they swear Jason cannot be replaced.

jimh(leave to beaver)

I’ve grown to hate the word ‘hater’…lol

@ j thanks for setting the record straight about SB . The bottom line is Fv & RC at that time were mostly interested in keeping the OLTLactors happy as like JFP likes to keep SB happy. I learned long ago all producers have actors they favor so I had to learn to deal with it.

Well, Su, the fact that Sonny is getting away with AJ’s murder is getting pretty stagnant for me. Carly should be beheaded right along with him….heads should roll all around…perhaps Jason (Billy the hottie) will be the hero—- wouldn’t that be a plot twist—-Jason turning on both Sonny and Carly for killing his brother. I am just as happy as you seeing Billy Miller again.
I do not buy this lame excuse that it would hurt Michael sooooo much if he knew the truth. The fact is, Sonny is a coward…too afraid to man up and face the music which is not called ‘Michael’, but ‘The Law/Justice’. Also, what kind of mother would keep her son’s own father’s death from him? She is protecting Sonny, not Michael.
Welcome, Billy…I hope Port Charles will be your permanent residence for an indefinite amount of time and undo all its wrongs by kicking some butt!!!!…..counting the hours….
Oh, one more thing……. will Jason be known to all characters as Jason, or just to the audience?

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Its just nice to see the return of another Quartimaine…i want Jason, not part of the mob but is the one who takes Sonny down!!!

connie
connie

From what I hear Liz gives him the name Jake. For now

CeeCee
CeeCee

So then, Jason IS John Doe. Even with the bandages, he didn’t look unrecognizable. So, does that mean he has aready had plastic surgery? I guess the pieces to the puzzle will come together, eventually. ……..slooowly!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I wonder if she’ll take him home…new face and amnesia…but he’ll move around her house and know where things are…and Liz will wonder how he knows all this and so comfortable with her house then eventually figure out who he really is…strange they dont do fingerprints or dna to figure out his identity…just sayin!!!

J
J

Let’s all Not Forget The “saint” known as AJ Quartermain nearly killed Jason with his drunk Driving, Kidnapped Michael and Kristina way back when and recently almost Choked Connie to death in Sonny’s Living Room, Pulled a gun on Connie about to kill her, and then went on to Choke out Ava when Sonny walked in and found him doing to her what he had done to another women(Connie). Now Sonny, believing that AJ had Murdered his Fiancé in cold blood, walks in and finds him attacking yet another women, what did you expect the mobster to do? He only shot AJ because he and everyone else believed that he killed his love Connie! You can’t really blame Sonny that much, what man wouldn’t want the man responsible for his Fiancé or wife’s death to pay for it instead of walk free and attack other women!? Seriously people. It’s just to bad that Sonny didn’t know the truth because he never would have shot him then! Sonny gets a bad rap from everyone but honestly in the history of TV and movies, he’s about the Least Lethal Mob Boss ever! I hope Sonny finds a way out of this entire mess he’s in thanks to Ava mostly. Heck maybe AJ is even still alive thanks to Monica and the Cassidines or something! I hope he is for Sonny’s sake and they could just recast him with somebody like Michael Muhney! TeamSONNY&JASON!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Thank you, J. Wow. I am so new to GH, I do not realize that there’s an entire history behind every character. I suppose I based my opinions on the last few months that AJ was on the GH stage.
Obviously when you put it that way, I have a clearer view of AJ’s character or lack thereof. Why does he have such a positive following? Was he misunderstood by his parents? Did he battle alcoholism forever?
In the end, he did try to connect with his son. I think everyone involved in any situation, as fiction is based on reality, in most cases, is responsible for his/her own behavior. So , J, I concur.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hi, again, J. I like reading your posts. You have a knack of putting things in perspective…as Timmm and rebecca do also.
I think Billy Miller will slip into the role of Jason with ease. He had no problem assuming the Billy Abbot character. Once he climbed aboard, It didn’t even phase me that he had replaced DT.. Thus, I am certain the Jason character will fit him like a glove. The transition will not be a big deal for him, IMO. He is THAT good.

So exciIted to see Billy tackle the role of Jason. I expect nothing but excellence. 🙂

We GH fans are SO lucky to have this much talent on one show. cannot wait to see the Super Duper talented BM today!

Laurie
Laurie

I agree but you may just be talking about BM. I am referring to some of the other cast mates. I think there are many talented actors on GH. A few duds too of course. Also if I compliment BM I”m not slamming Burton. I’m just having fun enjoying this fun show.

BTW, BM has chemistry w/everyone I ever saw him hooked up with on Y&R. I feel that way about RH and KM on GH so I’m absolutely ready to see these actors mix and get on w/their “love in the afternoon”….

Also Mr. Fairman as I’ve said before, you have a classy site here!

Timmm
Timmm

Yes, too many actors not enough face time. I like these characters but Lucy is useless, Scott and Franco dont do anything, and Bobbie is rarely seen and she has two kids and grandchildren. No hard feeling but cut Bobbie, Lucy, Scott, and Lucas.

jonboy
jonboy

I’ve given up trying to understand the things they do at GH. I’ve decided they just do what they do for ratings bumps. There are so many little-used actors/characters on GH—but they keep adding more. Since Stafford came aboard I think she has had more air time than anyone else. Loved her for years on YnR; not feeling her on GH. Phyllis was a multi dimensional and (dare I say it?)better written character. Billy Miller is (IMO) an okay actor, but I never got why some thought he was so great. I couldn’t stand the character of Jason and am less than thrilled to have him revived although, knowing Carlavati, the character won’t be the same. Look how he sterilized Franco.

CeeCee
CeeCee

We may talk about the characters and their roles, good or bad….but, please can we not trash the soaps and the people who run them? I do not care who they are or how they write…I just salute them for bringing these shows to our screens.
Of course Jason will not be the same. Billy is not Steve. His personality will rub off on Jason…that’s inevitable. One cannot blame Carlivati for that ! I hope nuJason will be Jason Morgan…so, if that is the case, he will definitely be different.
Nina has had moderate air time. Plus, as a new character, we need to get to know her. This role is being honed….as is Franco’s. The writers are on to something with these two…so, please have a little patience. If you cannot find it within yourself to do that, then you should not watch. As I have said on another site…DO NOT RAIN ON MY PARADE.
I am all for discussions concerning characters, plots, storylines etc……negatively and positively. But, not against TPTB…..without ‘them’, we would have nothing to discuss.

harry
harry

Cee Cee, I disagree. Last I heard, the second amendment is still alive and well. Moreover, Jonboy writing that Billy Miller is an “okay actor” and expressing his belief that Carlavati is not a very good writer hardly qualifies as trash talk. His criticism was rather tepid in my opinion–I have read harsher criticism and I have expressed harsher criticism myself. I happen to agree with Jonboy and share his trepidation as far as the writing is concerned.
Finally, I never understood the notion of “raining on my parade.” If fans are so excited and happy about a story and an actor how does a comment which expresses a mildly critical opinion daunt your enjoyment of the show? Attempting to censor of an opinion which differs from your own is something with which I take great issue. Diversity being replaced by conformity is not a good thing on any forum.
That said, I am very excited about Billy Miller playing Jason. He’s an effervescent actor who radiates natural charm. I will watch for him.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Oops. I meant to say, I hope nuJason will NOT be Jason Morgan. I hope he will revert to his original role as Jason Quartermaine. I have not been watching for long, but it seems that most fans would like to see JQ back. Same here…I am not into mobsters.

Mary SF

CeeCee– I think you are being a bit unfair to jonboy. You really can’t have a serious discussion about characters, plots, etc, without including the writers who are writing the story. I mean you can’t discuss a Shakespeare play without including William Shakespeare in the discussion, so your logic they should be exempt from any comment doesn’t hold much weight if you honestly think about it.

I agree there are at times too many personal attacks against the writers as people, instead of actually discussing and debating the style and decision making process of character development and plot– but that is sometimes a function of maturity or an inability to communicate effectively with the written word, or it could be some people are just jerks.

However, regardless of the reason I have to take issue with you stance that people should censor their comments because they are raining on your parade— to silence free speech by telling others what they can or cannot say just because you don’t like the negative tone of the comment is trending on a fine line. Being hateful or libelous should not be condone and that’s a given, and this site employs moderators to filter out the worse of the worse, as it should be. But telling someone what they should think or feel about anything, for no reason other than you don’t like how they think or feel is a dangerous practice.

I come to this site confident in my own being– no one’s opinion on any topic will ruin my enjoyment of the site or the soaps- and when I find too many negative comments I just skip over them, because no one is forcing me to read them. After a while you get sense of who is on this site just to troll, to say nasty things on purpose to provoke a reaction, and those who are offering honest opinions, even if they might be negative at times.

As for TPTB giving us our soaps– sorry but they aren’t giving us anything– they are selling a product to us, and if we don’t buy it, they don’t make money via ratings— if TPTB are truly interested in keeping their product on the air they should be listening to the people they are trying to market to. If our soaps go off the air it won’t be because of negative comments, but because they weren’t making enough profit. We can be loyal to our soaps, but trust me that loyalty is not returned– as any fan of any cancelled soap will tell you.

It’s a matter of option, Harry…we’re good. I love our differences.

Mary, I did not intend to cause all this controversy. I am not malicious or intentionally infringing on people’s freedom of speech.
I will not drag this any longer. You have spoken your peace and I whole heartedly appreciate your soft tone….unlike some other’s. Some posters are brutal, as you well know.
I will not explain myself any longer, nor will I be put in that position.
Thank you Mary…I will tamp my phraseology in the future.
I apologize to Jonboy , which coincidentally, is my little nephew’s nickname. Sorry!!!!
I respond with respect to those who, such as yourself, Mary, reciprocate.

Timmm
Timmm

BINGO! I compare this to rooting for your favorite sports team. Its okay to be mad or throw out suggestions but be thankful you have a sports team in your city and can basically watch them for free. Same with soaps, I am so grateful for Ron and Frank saving GH. GH was so close to being off the air and these two along with the other writers revived this historical gem!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Please, harry. You should not get so upset all the time. It’s not worth it…not healthy…bad for the blood pressure. Follow my advice and listen to HAPPY. I play it for my 5-year old when he gets cranky……really works.
You seem to take issue with me, Su, and now Connie….who will be next?

Mary SF
Mary SF

CeeCee– just saw your reply to me– it is I you who needs to apologize to you if I made you think I was attacking your character or your motives. I am bit sensitive about free speech and some times I read things I become like a bull seeing a red flag and I need to charge— right up my soapbox ( no pun intended) and give my lecture on the topic. I thought you would know by my previous posts that I was making an intellectual point and you wouldn’t take my speech too personally.
However since the moderator of this site disallowed my post explaining to you what I read in your post that was that red flag for me, and since you stated you no longer wish to discuss the issue I will let it go–
Just know you sound like a very charming upbeat woman and enjoy all your posts— you do have my up most respect and you are very wise because it is a good policy to stick to talking about the stories and plots, because that is what this site is about. In In the future I will try to save the speeches about free speech for websites designed for human rights and not soaps. Thank you for your patience– and if anyone rains on your parade, hope you have an umbrella so you can enjoy the parade regardless– best wishes always from mary sf.

Freedom of speech is about all we have left….and even that seems to be dissipating. I stand by my post. And, without belaboring this thing, would like to just comment on one of CeeCee’s comments. No, I don’t want to be placed in the position of not watching. I’ve watching GH, off and on, for many, many years. It’s like a relationship, I suppose. You once loved it but now, not so much anymore. On one hand you want to step out of the relationship; on the other, you don’t. I want it to be better; not something I sit here shaking my head at.

luvin this!
Billy Miller is a very versatile actor..
He can be loving and humorous and he can be dangerously dark ..

I’m looking forward to see which why they will take him, whichever way Billy will go he will own it!!

(I do like the bad bad bad boys, however 🙂

CeeCee

However, Harry. There’s a huge difference between expressing one’s opinion and attacking someone else’s. Jonboy is entitled to his, as I am to mine. I expressed my disagreement, but did not attack.

I love the expression DON’T RAIN ON MY PARADE….use it all the time. Do you know the song HAPPY, by Pharrel Williams? I love it. ….Listen to it all the time. It calms me down.

I love Billy Miller. He is charming sexy, hot and a wonderful actor. Let the fire works begin. Billy Miller has won 3 daytime emmys as Billy Abbott on The Young and The Restless, I see a 4th emmy in the future for Billy Miller. He will be terrific as the new Jason Quartermaine.

Elite Advisors

Was it todays GH when we were supposed to see nuJason? I looked pretty close and did a rewind and I swear it looked more like Franco wrapped up than Billy M.

Seems like there are last minute changes because Franco one day has a clear shaven beard and the next it is out of control mess…all supposed to be in the same day… not sure how Patrick can perform 2 brain surgeries on him and not think “hmmm that’s odd” same scar tissue same place?

Either way still looking forward to billy M 🙂

Timmm

It was Billy. Patrick was curious as he looked at the scans. If he had Jason’s old films next to John Doe’s he would probably figure it out.

Yes, he should. But, if Sam is anywhere near Patrick, she will go into one of her lengthy monologue and befuddle his brain…lol.

I quit watching Y&R a long time ago so I don’t know how Billy was on that show I do remember him from AMC and he seemed a good actor then I just hope they do something right and make the fans accept him because it is really hard to have a long time actor replaced. I don’t really want him to be a hit man anymore but making him totally different wont work either people liked that Jason was a mixture of bad a– and loving. As far as the plastic surgery that might have already been done at creepy clark or else why didn’t anyone recognize him his face is showing enough out of the bandages to see its not steve burton. well good luck GH because even though I ‘ve been aggravated a lot by some of the things being done I don’t want to lose the only soap I watch and have been a fan of for forty years.

I’m really excited that we get to see NuJason’s face at the same time he does! He will be shocked he looks so different if he doesn’t have amnesia.

I LOVE that he got mowed down by Ava. To me, that was Diane mowing Billy Abbott down (they were on Y&R at the same time). Still AMAZED Ava stopped & called Jordan for help.

I thought that by having him get hit by a car, that would give him a reason to have facial surgery (plus The Cassadines won’t know what NuJason looks like) and have Liz get attached to the poor John Doe that was hit by a car just like her son Jake. Maybe she can comfort him and save him like she couldn’t Jake.

Also, I think having Danny run in and touch his daddy is dang smart! What better way to soften the audience up to a NuJason! I bet they had a blast filming those scenes.

One more thing! BM has a lot of SB’s features: eye color, height, weight, hair..BM’s voice is very different. Maybe that’s why he couldn’t talk in the car with Robin. Victor did something to his vocal chords?

Would it have been possible that Victor did one of those surgeries he’s had or was that all GH’s previous work? Just thinking Vic is controlling him somehow. I ramble… I’m oone.

This is why, I wish Kristen/Kiki would sing on GH. She has a fantastic voice. Sadly, some of these talented actresses/a

CeeCee
CeeCee

Oops, sorry, Timmm…holding the baby with one arm and I accidentally sent.
I was saying that some actors and actresses who have such talent musically, should be given the opportunity to showcase their voices. Kassie DePaiva is also a great singer. I wish TPTB would incorporate musicality within some scenes.

CeeCee

Hi, Jonboy . I am so glad you decided to address me personally. It is quite annoying dealing with third parties, who think they need to interject their 2 cents worth of their opiniated selves. We all verbalize our opinions. Good or bad, I am not the only one. This is why this site is there. Thank goodness I will be going back to work and won’t have to put up with the know-it-alls of this world as much…once in a while. I always try to be respectful but there is a line that some people should not cross.

Thank you Mr. Fairman for giving me this opportunity…now, I am in tears.

I do realize that the “do not watch” part was a vey stupid thing for me to write. I am sorry for that. Sometimes I think out loud, not realizing our words have consequences and can be very hurtful. My deepest apologies.
However, this is a site to express opinions ….you expressed yours and I expressed mine in return. There is not one time that I said anything to you to hold your tongue ….I did not mention freedom of speech. It is part of the constitution and I know US history well.
One of the posters gave me an abusive tongue lashing about the second amendment contrary to what what he was spewing. If you go back and read my original post, you will see that I never said you could not express your opinion. What I was trying to impart is that no matter our personal opinion about TPTB, I am happy soaps are still televised, regardless. This person has an inexplicable urge to verbally antagonize me….so obvious.

Then there is the softer version of poster who patronizes me, writes this multi paragraph sermon on the social graces and freedom of speech? I did not bother reading the rest after the first paragraph. My mother went into peels of laughter…I am her little girl, and some stranger lectures me? Ha! She proceeds to spoon-feed me, as if I were a mindless, uneducated idiot. I teach High School Physics…there must be a brain in there somewhere….not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but it got me a PhD. I humbly say that, Jonboy.

Lastly, Jonboy, I always enjoy your posts. Again, my words hurt you…it was unfair. I am so sorry. But, in no way do I feel that I infringed on your freedom to express yourself. It would make me a hypocrite…..or calling the kettle black, as it were. Later.

Dancing with the Stars Juniors

LISTEN TO THE REPLAY: Soap Nation Live! With Special Guests: Y&R’s Joshua Morrow, DWTS: Juniors & GH’s Hudson West & B&B’s Joe Lando

Photo Credits: CBS, JPI, ABC

Listen to “Soap Nation Live! October 2018” on Spreaker.

If you missed Thursday night’s broadcast of Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman you can now listen to the replay right here in audio player above!

This episode was given to the gents in soaps as Michael welcomed his very special guests: The Young and the Restless Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman), Dancing with the Stars: Juniors and General Hospital’s Hudson West (Jake), and The Bold and the Beautiful, and One Life to Live and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman favorite, Joe Lando (Judge Craig McMullen).

During this fun night of chat, Joshua weighed-in on the Shick wedding that went bust, when Sharon told Nick at the altar that she knows he had sex with Phyllis.  Morrow, who will celebrate his 25th year as Nick Newman in early 2019 chimed in what the future for the stat-crossed couple may hold, and how he has enjoyed showing Nick’s dark side of late, plus he revealed one scene he felt uncomfortable with that he would not play, the ladies over the years in Nick’s life, and when asked by a listener of his memories of the late, great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), Joshua shared some fun and poignant remembrances.
