78 November 2nd, 2015 GENERAL HOSPITAL: Just Look At What Facial Recognition Software Can Do!

Courtesy/ABC

Will Spinelli’s (Bradford Anderson) nifty new software program be the answer to all of General Hospital  fans long-suffering angst? Will everyone in Port Charles finally find out that “Jake” is really Jason (Billy Miller)? The answers seem to be on their way starting this week on the ABC soap opera.

When we last left off, (at the end of GH’s Friday cliffhanger) Spinelli needed to run back to Portland because Ellie has been  injured.  So, he tells Carly (Laura Wright) at the hospital that he has to leave, but he has the facial recognition software running and it should be just about completed which would give answers to “Jake’s” true identity.  Spinelli tells Carly to deliver the laptop to Sam (Kelly Monaco) once the program is done running and completed.

But what Spinelli and Carly do not see is that the recognition software is morphing the skeletal x-rays from “Jake’s” face (Billy Miller) to Jason’s original face (Steve Burton)!  Now it looks as if Carly will be the first person with this explosive information, just as Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) is set to walk down the aisle with “Jake”.   What will she do with it?

According to Laura Wright in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, when Carly stumbles upon Jason’s face in the software, she teases: “It almost knock her over.  It’s just, “Wow, Oh, my God! It is not at all what she’s  expecting and she can barely speak!” Carly will want to get to “Jake” right away with the intel, but will she get to him? This is a  soap opera afterall, and there will probably be some massive roadblocks in her way!

Watch the final moments of Friday’s GH cliffhanger below with the pickup happening today! Tell us:  what did you think of the facial recognition software as the way to reveal the identify of “Jake”? Do you think Carly will succeed in telling “Jake” who he is before his wedding to Liz?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

    Something will come up…Carly will either get stuck in an elavator, or She is kidnapped or Sonny has a crises-he ran out of bacon grease to slick back his hair…lol

    HaHa, Jimmy. Perhaps, you can answer this for me….what is the difference between Julian and Sonny? Is one person better than the other, morally? They are cut from the same cloth, yes? So, where does Carly get off telling Olivia that Julian is a loser father for Leo? Ummmm, didn’t she just marry, for the umpteenth time, a subway mouse from Bensenhurst turned rat killing for bigger cheese as payoff? Or bigger pizza slices , LOL. I ask, why is Sonny constantly put on a pedestal?
    Then, the Oh-Wise-One himself told Olivia the same hypocritical words. What’s up with these writers? They are continuing to carry the torch for almighty Sonny; clearing the path to his altar; paying him homage with adoration. Let’s all light a candle for this sainted superstar. Amazing!!

    Still have to watch this, but perhaps it just further reflects the hypocritical view Carly & Sonny have of themselves?

    Jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Funny…you made me think of that popular utube video with the mouse carrying a piece of pizza…maybe its Sonny…lol…cant stand those hypocritical Corinthos bunch…wish Days and GH could do a crossover with Ben fleeing Salem and he arrives in PC to knock off a few characters…would love to see Sonny wearing one of those ties around his neck and Carly too..lol

    CeeCee replied

    @jimh( leave it to beaver)
    Lol, Jimmy. That is exactly why I said it…..are you a New Yorker? That rat actually made the news, here in NYC area. I bet it was Sonny in disguise. Ha! Later.

    Anne replied

    please please no delays. The reveal of Jake’s identify should have happened looooong ago.

    This effect was spectacular! I dont think Carly will spill the beans. I think Robin will have something to do with the reveal? You know whatever happens it will happen at the wedding! Liz will NOT have a nice Thanksgiving. Speaking of Liz, wouldnt it be funny if little Jake busted into Sonny’s hospital room and claimed he was taking over Port Charles’s territory!

    Reply

    CeeCee replied

    I agree, Timmm. Finally, my interest is tapping me on the back. I like the suspense…will Carly spill? Will she keep the life-changing news to herself until she feels is the right time? sKnowing myself, I could never keep news like that to myself. But, I’m a real person; not a puppet.
    Well, Timmm. How do we know that little Jake does not have a brain belonging to an adult? An evil adult, at that…maybe Stavros. Wasn’t he a child-like spoiled brat? By the by….how do we know Helena did not whisk Nik away and replaced him with a fake?
    One never knows…Helena is mighty powerful. Hey, Robin could have performed the brain transfer. It would not be so shocking to have little ‘Damien’ attack Sonny….they’re almost the same size, anyway.

    I thought this was a great device to reveal the truth. It was exciting to watch. Very cool! Long Love GH!!

    Yes, it was, Mister Media. Very clever, indeed. This is why I think Liz, Nik , Hayden and the unwilling participant, Laura will escape the ‘hangman’. No one will be the wiser. Well, maybe??

    Melissa replied

    OK, but why in the world would Spinelli leave his lap top running a very important and confidential program in the middle of a hospital waiting area? I don’t care that he left it with Carly, she was too distracted talking to Sonny’s medical staff to even care about sticking close to the computer. If she really cares for Jake as a friend she would have stayed glued to that computer throughout, no matter how long it took. It’s like when people recap deep dark secrets in public spaces where they can be easily overheard.

    Reply

    Mister Media replied

    You’re right of course, but I suppose the justification could be made that Spinelli never imagined that the results would reveal anyone familiar who would be recognized and would thus be of litte interest to anyone who viewed them.

    Yes, FINALLY, jeremy. I just hope and pray it is the end!! But, as intimated above, we could be facing more useless and senseless pit stops until the final destination. Who knows how long that will take. It’s been how long? We’ll have a new President and Jake will still be asking, “who am I?”

    HaHa, Ces. Too funny! John Black! Our favorite. How long has it been for him? Finding his elusive parents is all in his head. Sometimes I think I see his weird facial expressions and hear his husky voice in my sleep….whispering, “Hey, Doc.”

    harrylime replied

    HA! Ces. I watched Days off and on about 25 years ago. Back then he was still wrestling with his identity.
    Now we see him on Ancestor, com, and no one, not even Marlena, gives a damn.

    there is free software, not the best, but to play with to do similar. It’s not easily done, but fun.
    It has a lot to with speed so need need a good connection..
    and not as good as studio done, for sure ..

    I did not care for a computer reveal, hoping for something more climactic but at least the reveal is near, and that is good.

    Well the timeline is going to take a while. The actual wedding starts Wed I think and lasts about a week (I saw a Varni comment about it). I’m very sad about JT leaving at this time. I think from the preview Robin has NOTHING to do with it. Maybe Patrick calls her after since she told him Jason was dead.

    I’m more curious why Robin is being held prisioner–only because I do now want to see Jason with Sonny or Sam.

    I have yet to see GH today… I’m sure Carly’s reaction will be priceless….
    The Lulu /Halloween reveal on that Haunted tugboat should be equally interesting.

    Hello, Fanny, sweet lady:
    I do not want to put a damper on your excitement, but by the time you get this post, you will have, hopefully, already watched the Lulu-Dante-Valerie revelation.
    Personally, I found it to be extraordinarily commonplace and redundant….reminiscent of Carly/Franco wedding. It was not surprising, but expected. I predict the same old, same old for the up-coming nuptials between Liz and Jake.

    Reply

    Timmm replied

    Franco / Carly reveal was 10 times better! This Lulu is not good! He reaction was horrible. You probably didnt watch GH when Julie Berman was Lulu. She was 10 times better! Anyway, what I hated the most was Lulu’s standoff with Val Chops! The acting was horrible and Lulu didnt smack the witch upside her head! Seriously, if you were in Lulu’s shoes wouldnt you want to slap the bitch who screwed your husband in YOUR bed. Weak, very weak!

    Fanny replied

    @CeeCee sweetie,
    You R correct dearest… Unfortunately the writers missed the “BOAT”
    on this one. I didn’t feel or see the emotional devastation one would
    feel during such a shocking revelation… Dante looked half asleep at
    the helm, Lulu was crass, Val-chops tearful, Dillon constantly
    threatening Dante…was semi glad it happened…as if he’d planned
    it this way. Paul had told him earlier never to give up on the woman
    you love…
    Most likely the same thing will occur with Jake’s unveiling
    hoping there R a few good aftershocks after such a weak quake.
    We still have Hayden and possibly Robin…. Surprisingly Carly chose
    to think things through, get as many facts together before blowing
    everything sky high. They can ALL tell Jake he’s Jason till the cows
    come home but if he doesn’t remember or feel what they feel, than
    right now not much can change for HIM. Till next time Sweets.

    CeeCee replied

    @Timmm.
    Hey, there, Timmm.
    Of course Franco’s surprise ‘revelation’ was better….that’s why the repeat of the same does not phase anyone. IT HAS BEE DONE. So incredibly amateurish. I’m beginning to think Su is right about the new writing team. What? Do they copy from one another?
    Now, let me tell you that I left the room to get an apple without pausing. That’s how unimpressed I was. Lol. Am I whining? Ah, who cares, right? Someone will comment expounding how ungrateful and bitchy I am. Later, my friend.

    CeeCee replied

    @Fanny.
    I cannot top what you just wrote, my love. It is perfection. Great expose’, pardon the pun!

    harrylime replied

    Julie Berman would have pulled this off. She would have portrayed a betrayed wife whose worse fears about marriage (after watching what happened to her parents’ great love story) had been realized.
    Instead, we get mini-Lulu marching around the docks in her five inch heels while in a state hysteria. She just seemed like an angry muppet.

    CeeCee replied

    @Timmm.
    Lol, Timmmbo. I think I once told you what I would do if my husband ever cheated on me. I would do a ‘Bobbit’ on him. The woman? Just look her up and down as the piece of trash she is. I would not dirty my hands.
    I do believe that Valerie’s embarrassment will last her a lifetime. I just cannot believe Dante’s excuse. ” I thought you were cheating on me”! Really? Lulu’s ‘heartbreak’ acting got better…she did ok. And, yes, Juliw was still on when I started watching. So, I know what you mean.
    I hope Lulu finds new lodgings….the idea of living in the place my husband did another woman would make my skin crawl.
    Also, the truth needed to come out, but what Dillon did was really low and crass. What does that tell us about his persona? His integrity? The Apple does not fall far…..
    What a complete jerk! So what foes he think? That Lulu will now go running to him? Such child’s play. There is probably a sandbox behind the scenes and the writers carry their little beach pails and shovels.
    By the way, I never thought Dillon was a looker. Now with that Brylcreemed head ; I don’t know, even worse!…..maybe if he parted his hair on the other side? HaHaHa!!

    Carly will be delayed but she will get the information to Jake/Jason. I can’t wait to see Liz get her bubble burst. All those secrets she is hiding. And it doesn’t just affect her. It directly affects her kids and Jason’s kids. She is a good woman overall, I truly believe that, but her obsession with Jason grew out of control. She needs that ugly reality check. I am looking forward to seeing what happens.

    Reply

    CeeCee replied

    Yeah, Mateo. Liz looked a little apprehensive as Carly told Jake she wanted a private conversation with him. But, Carly is not aware that Liz knows who Jake is. There is a chance no one will ever find out Liz even knew the truth. Unless Nik, Hayden and Laura come forward with the info. And, by doing so, they will shoot themselves in the foot. I guess it depends where TPTB want to go with it. Oh, what a tangled web…..

    Fanny replied

    @CeeCee Love…you know Liz is not walking away unscathed …
    Unfortunately all of it her own doing, as if standing in front of an on
    coming freight train is going to miss it’s target. Liz, Liz, Liz …. Misery
    will be the only thing she gets from all the lying and covering up she’s
    done since she found out Jakes true identity. Will it have been worth
    it in the end.

    Patrick replied

    is this going to be a knowing he’s Jason Quartermaine, with no memory coming back?

    and Liz wll have to delay the wedding… and can she get out of this unscathed

    well… Nicholas should stand up for her… and swear Hayden and mom Laura to secrecy… to let Liz off the hook

    CeeCee replied

    @Fanny.
    No, dear friend, nothing is ever worth over losing one’s soul. Sadly, we find such people in the real world. I agree, Liz should pay for the misery she is causing for everyone. But, so much evil and crime is swept under the rug in soaps.

    Why does Carly have to be in the center of every thing? I hope Liz herself stops the nuptials to tell jake the truth, unlickly though, still I they make Carly the center of this story I’ll puke .!!! And the computer reveal was neat I liked it. Glad this story is finally playing to its conclusion, I hope Liz moves on, jake isn’t worth it neither is nick so hope she gets someone new.

    Carly is the lead actress on GH. She therefore should be involved in the major stories. She’s been the most interesting character on GH for 20 years. I love Laura Wright!

    hi Aria..
    Of course Carly would be involved with Jason’s reveal.
    Jason and Carly were very close, much like brother and sister..

    Sam is not right for Billy/Jason, I hope they do not get back together..
    Billy Miller is a heap of charisma and the Sam character is much like a blah stone..
    Sam will drag Jason into blah land with her.
    I want Json free..
    Jake will be reborn into a Jason, he needs to be free to work on his life not be in a love triangle.

    Much like brother and sister, su? I thought Jason and Carly had been lovers for a while, back in the day. Golly, I would hope brothers and sisters would not do that. Ewwww. Was I misinformed?

    hi CeeCee,, right, back in the day love stuff with fake sex! lol

    I just want Jason free of Liz and Sam :( poor guy being stuck with either of them.

    Hi, Su.
    Yes, we have always agreed on that, Su. Jake/Jason should be untethered for a while; no tug-of-war games. These particular hens will peck him to death.

    Carly will get delayed somehow– and although it is a standard soap opera device to have someone come in and break up the wedding with the “news” whether it be Carly, Hayden or Robin, I am hoping that Liz will have the decency not to go through with it, and bolt from the altar– please give Liz a little wiggle room for redemption and not marry a married man. I want the truth to come out finally, but lets not do it at the wedding –let Liz do the the decent thing and then have the truth come out afterwards.

    Right? Ahhh, ces. I must sound like a broken record by now; but these writers are testing our intelligence and what’s within the realm of reason. Perhaps I was expecting too much from this new team.
    I know you notice these subtle things, ces…….so;….have you noticed that Sam also wears black to bed? Some sleeping gear, eh? Leggings and wife-beaters.
    Boxers are so much more comfy. LOL

    Well, ces, the feeling is mutual, since you just cracked me up…about, Patrick’s maneuvers? Between Sam, Summer, and “hey Doc”, we’re all set.

    Right, Fanny….why introduce a topic, and a very delicate one at that, and not pursue it? I bet they have other ideas for Morgan. But, I just can’t picture him doing anything constructive or relevant because I can’t get the lascivious image of him out of my head. I cannot take this character seriously. This is how the previous writers molded him. It will take a while and something monumental to change Morgan’s guise and how he is perceived. I must see pigs fly to sway me, my lovely lady.

    No one is saying Jake Doe will be Jason Morgan. Jake is Jason in name only. Don’t you know that, Gilbert? No actor, regardless how good he/she is, can ever duplicate another’s idiosyncrasies. And, I doubt that is what the writers are trying to do. His head injury will accommodate the ‘problem’ perfectly. Ain’t fiction great??
