80 October 24th, 2015 GENERAL HOSPITAL: Little Jake To Big ‘Jake’ : “But You Are My Real Daddy, I Know It!”

Courtesy/ABC

This headline was lifted directly from Friday’s episode of GH, and yes, we know, it certainly can be intepreted in different ways.

But that is precisely why General Hospital has got to get this story of “Jake’s” (Billy Miller) true identify out in the open already.  At least, so soap pundits and GH’s enduring fans can start calling “Jake” by his real first name, “Jason” for easy clarity! No more was this evident than at the end of Friday’s cliffhanger on the ABC daytime drama series when “Jake” has a heart- to-heart with little Jake (James Nigbor) who was upset when “Jake” left earlier.  “Jake” promises he will always be there for the little boy, and that prompts little Jake to call  him “Dad”.

“Jake” is touched when little Jake calls him dad, saying he’ll be so happy to be his stepfather.  However, little Jake flashes back to overhearing Laura (Genie Francis) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) talk about “Jake” being little Jake’s true biological father, while he was eavesdropping on the staircase.  Back in real time, little Jake then says to”Jake”: “But you are my real daddy, I know it!”  Cue Elizabeth to overhear this, and become mortified when she walks through the door and happens upon the scene.

Meanwhile, earlier in the episode it looks like little Jake may have attacked or roughed up Cameron (Michael Leone).  Laura insists to Elizabeth that she get little Jake some professional help from a therapist.  Elizabeth says she will handle it.

So now what will Liz do?  Will little Jake be her ultimate undoing for her deception of keeping “Jake” from knowing he is really Jason?   Do you think something is seriously wrong with little Jake?  Do you hope GH finally gets the truth out that “Jake” is Jason so we don’t have two Jakes in Port Charles?   Comment below!

    The original “Village Of the Damned” is a really spooky movie. Little Jake has always had an other-worldliness about him, maybe not so extreme as one of the “Village” kids. But there is always suspicion where Helena is involved.

    I agree, Jimmy. The kid is spooky and maniacal. Just in time for the all Hallow’s Eve bash. Get out your ouija board….could be little Jake is a zombie.
    How else could he know big Jake is his daddy? Lol.

    I expected some high drama with Jason’s reveal, it is fail and needs a life preserver before it sinks.
    I was looking for twists & turns, intrigue, and a surprise shocker! (oh that be how RC would do it) but at the least there should be some drama.
    Revealing Jason by computer is stupid, no suspense.

    GH has always been out of the traditional soap box and unique of its’ own, that is why GH was treasured by me it was not like the other soaps.
    Now– it seems to be written as an ordinary soap, and that is not what GH is.
    It is not like Y&R nor should it be.
    I am disappointed in the lackluster writing of the Queens of Snooze. They will be the death of GH..

    Is there mind boggling Mystery / No
    Is there an on the edge plot / No
    Is there building up of suspense / No
    Is there gripping intrigue / No
    Is there action, WOW moments / No
    Is there a lot of BLAH / Yes

    GH has been empty . :( :(

    (Anna and her freakout dilemma is the only good story and that is due to Fiona’s powerful acting, she brings it alive)

    I expected a lot more drama, suspense, intrigue, twist & turn, something anything other than this snooze-off reveal, sigh ..

    It wont be by a computer since Spin deleted the file as the police arrived to arrest him. Robin will reveal Jake as Jason. You watch. As for the Anna situation, its stupid. She has killed for years. Whether it was being part of the DVX or WSB. Why is this so traumatic? She loved Duke and Carlos was a scumbag. END OF STORY! No, they are writing this garbage to give Anna something to do and an Emmy reel to submit!

    CeeCee replied

    You might be right, Timmm. It is so out of character for Anna to be so discombobulated. I was under the impression her name preceded her. So where is fierce Agent Devane hiding? I wish I could just grab her by the shoulders and shake her up a bit …..” Anna., don’t ever allow a man to rattle you this way! Get a hold of yourself. Knee him!!” Yup; that’s what I would do.

    Dan replied

    GH is being written more as a traditional soap, and that’s not a bad thing at all. No more twists and turns just for the sake of twists and turns, characters and scenes are being written with more substance, the show is being paced better, stories are moving along at a quicker place. If RC was still writing, it would be about 2020 before we saw the Jason reveal, if the show hadn’t been canceled by then.

    I don’t think Jean and Shelly can be properly judged on less than a month’s work, but I notice the differences already and I like them. I work during the week, so I binge watch the entire week of GH every weekend, and lately it had become a real chore. I would watch an episode or two, go do something else, because I was so bored, and finish later.

    But I just breezed through the whole week earlier today, because each show flowed into the next, and the stories kept me interested to continue watching. Nobody came back from the dead, nobody took off a mask to reveal their true identity like an episode of Scooby Doo, nobody had sex in a mausoleum, no beloved fan favorite characters got killed off for no reason at all, no mindless, pointless dialogue that goes on for 5 minutes, and has me hitting the fast forward button.

    Just some good old fashioned storytelling, and that’s exactly what GH needed, because the old approach was obviously not working. I think people should give Jean and Shelly a chance before they start complaining.

    Here, here, Dan! Thank you for your comments. I suspect we will see some changes in course as the new writers integrate their ideas. With you on being over the over-the-top twists and turns! Scooby-Doo? Good one!

    Harry replied

    Why are we agreeing with each other all of a sudden?
    Finola Hughes is bringing it as Anna–love her. I loved her scenes with the Doc. It’s always a joy to see two actors elevate the other to new heights and we saw that with Jon Lindstrom and Finola Hughes.
    It was nice to see this kid finally show his human side. So far, he’s been making me think he was Terminator’s Mini-me and the triangular hair style isn’t helping.
    And all I can hear in my head when I think of Lizzy and all her lying is an exasperated Mona Kane saying to her daughter,”Oh Erica.” Oh Lizzy.

    Can’t help but agree with you. It feels like the newest plot points can be seen a mile away. Unless there are some REALLY clever twists planned we know that:

    Carlos is alive.
    Sabrina is having his baby,
    Michael will join the mob.
    “Jake” will discover who he is and both Billy Miller and Jason Thompson will promptly leave GH after the “big” reveal because they are both sick and tired of GH’s weak writing.

    I agree, Su. When you’re right, you’re right. Everything has been sitting on a plateau, lately. No ups or downs…no hills or valleys….the stories just sit there stagnating. No excitement. Perhaps little Jake will be the one to set the storyline on fire……educe some excitement and suspense.

    MissySnow replied

    Why? Why should daytime soap opera fans NOT expect the best like we do with primetime, movies, and theaters? Our daytime soaps used to be the gold standard that primetime used to mimic and now we settle for whatever writers/network throw at us to see if it sticks.

    CeeCee replied

    I am sure we are all grateful, to the actors/actresses for doing their damndest to deliver their best with what they’re given. However, as far as the writers and all others that have a hand in creating storylines and building characters? Well, that’s a different chapter. we are not talking about novices coming on board here. We are talking about, experienced, seasoned writers ; thus, we should be given a lot more than what we’re getting. So, why shouldn’t we set our expectations high? These writers are not newbies. They know the drill. These ‘biggies’ hold the reins and get paid for it. We have all graduated grade school , we deserve something more believable, something fit for an adult; and, as I said once before; not a DICK AND JANE fare…..something with substance and meaningful enough to digest. I want to be on pins and needles. Y&R is starting to rise….. to fit into its shoes again…..Days?….well, I fear Days will go back to its usual doldrums, once the necktie strangler storyline is done.
    No, sir. I am grateful for my family’s health, I am grateful for us having bread to eat, water to drink; I am grateful for a modicum of world peace and I hope, having all healthy children on earth. I am very happy to have the remaining soaps still breathing, but unless TPTB do something to bring GH to its original royal seat and splendor; why be grateful to “them?” From what I hear, GH was one of the most brilliant soaps. But, somewhere along the line, as the rest, it lost its luster. These same high-powered soap-gods have killed two of the best daytime-soaps OLTL and AMC…..and, I need to be grateful?
    If anyone wants to just sucker-punch me: go ahead! It is how I feel. No one has the right to berate me to be grateful. Gimme a break….with all due respect.

    Timmm replied

    I see your point Jug but the network should also be grateful we are sticking with GH!

    Extremely disappointed replied

    I hate to say it, but I totally agree! I think we set our expectations too high for the new writers. At times it seems as if they are getting back on track but then in true RC fashion we get one step forward and then ten steps back! This whole Jason return is a joke. None of the writers have considered the history Jason’s personality and same for jasam. It’s as if they’re trying to make us forget they ever existed and are replacing Sam with Liz. Jason never had that strong of a connection with Elizabeth to where he would connect with her over Sam. HISTORY says differently. More than 10 yrs of jasam history seems to be up in smoke. For example, Jason was never into all that mushy kissy face baby talk with any woman ever! Idc if it’s BM or SB playing Jason, it just doesn’t fit! Also he was never that stupid. Memory or no memory! Watching BM and RH is just plain uncomfortable and icky. No chemistry at all and it’s quite creepy. How long is this farce going to continue? Everyone is assuming liason wedding date is the date it will all come to an end but I know better than to get my hopes up. I don’t believe for one second that GH would actually give the date of the reveal. They never have done anything like that before. I am feeling extremely frustrated and disappointed

    MissySnow replied

    Sigh. Liz, Robin and Carly all have a longer history with Jason than Sam who came to town in 2003. Robin has know Jason Quatermaine and Jason Morgan. Carly first met Jason Morgan in 1996. Liz met Jason in 1998!

    To say this Jason “back from the dead” story line has been a real challenge to watch, would be putting it mildly. It has been nauseatingly boring and redundant. The ratings have plummeted to new lows for over 20 weeks in demos. They’ve started to rebound a little now. I’d hate to see GH be cancelled because of this horrifically drawn out reveal.
    I enjoyed watching Sam and Patrick when the writers had them paired at the beginning. Then they stopped writing for them, and all we saw was the same conversation between Jake and Liz.
    Bringing little Jake back was a surprise….but, where has he been? Where was the heartwarming mother and son scenes? Liz’s child was gone for 4 years, and we got maybe two scenes with them together?
    The whole show is ridiculous.
    They need to shake things up or we’re going to start losing more than ratings…the actors will leave one by one. I’m sick that Jason Thompson is leaving. What a tremendous loss to GH. Great looking, extremely talented actor, and we’re losing him. I don’t blame him a bit for leaving. He’s an actor. Let him ACT!!!!!

    Billy Miller must be bored to death with this storyline. Virtually the same dialogue happens over and over again between Jake and Liz, Jake and Sam, Jake and Nicholas and Hayden. The only interesting wrinkle has been adding Laura into the mix.

    Btw, we desperately need to know what has happened to Robin, even if they just give us an explanation off screen. With Elena out of the way there should be nothing keeping her from coming home. We need to know why she’s staying away from the family she loves, and especially now that her mother needs her so desperately.

    Hello, MissySnow and Lucy: love your honest remarks. Fearless…
    Gee…I am so glad you guys are coming out of the woodwork about Sam. I have minimal knowledge about the character. I really never was into her. I don’t get all the accolades since, as an actress, she is horrible. But, the way TPTB seem to shelter her and the fans some fans drool over her, I thought she was some sort of saint put on a pedestal to be venerated.
    I hadn’t realized Patrick had given her a ring…..must have missed that!
    Hmmmmm. I wonder if he went to JARED’S?

    This story has gone on sooooooooooo long I really could care less what happens right now. If the new writers have started showing their stuff you’d never know it because the writing is still horrible. I’ve loved GH for decades and now have no desire to watch it at all. BUMMER. Bring on the goooood story lines, assuming GH can hire writers that can actually write something interesting. So much talent wasted. Let the actors/actresses move on to exciting shows instead of keeping them on this ship stuck with its anchor in the bottom of the ocean.

    I think what little Jake did to Cam, happens thousands of times a day between young siblings. That said, Liz would NEVER ignore any problem with her children–she’s STILL being written OOC.

    Obviously Little Jake has problems. Who knows what Helena did?

    I think it’s going to be hard to recreate the amazing & natural chemistry between Billy & Becky. And I am really not looking forward to the reveal.

    Reply

    CeeCee replied

    Hi Lucy.
    While it’s true Liz would normally not ignore any problem encountered with her kids; the fact that she has not engaged a psychiatrist, knowing exactly where and with whom little Jake has been, speaks volumes. She’s slacking …..she is more involved in herself and her wedding to Jake to think with a rational mind. So, Ms Lizzie chooses to leave the boy haplessly twisting in the wind. She is not what I would call an true representation of a mother. She has her son back. A miracle! Yet, the center of her universe is Jason and her warped/skewed perception of reality.
    You are right, Lucy. Little Jake has issues, and, for Liz not to realize this, means there is a huge disconnect between her and her surroundings…her issues are just as grave as her son’s.
    You are also right in summing up Liz and Jake…the natural chemistry is blowing in the same aforementioned wind. Later.

    Reply

    CeeCee replied

    Sorry…I forgot, Lucy:
    Yes, I agree, siblings do all sorts of ‘torture’ to each other. But, it wasn’t actually what little Jake did. It was the look in his eyes. It was an icy, I-want-to-hurt-you stare….almost mechanical….not a mischievous look so typical of a child or sibling. I can say in all honesty that this kid is really good. I am starting to appreciate him, more and more.

    Lucy D. replied

    Hi CeeCee,
    I agree Little Jake needs a LOT of help. I was more complaining about how Liz has been written OOC for months and months–and this lack of concern about Jake just underscores that. While I think there is a lot of natural chemistry between Becky & Billy, Liz was NEVER that into Jason that she would lie, ignore her kids’ problems or allow Nicolas to do what he did. She wouldn’t treat Laura that way.

    I think they could have told an even more dramatic story without having both Liz & Nic act so OOC.

    CeeCee replied

    @Lucy.
    You are absolutely right. I can only base my opinions on the now. I am not familiar with Liz’s past life or personality. You are, and, of course, that fact makes you a better judge and can express a true opinion….much better than I, anyway. I was the biggest Lizzie fan when I started watching. I did love her and Billy together, as well. But, as yourself, I believe TPTB have ruined her for me and any relationship with Jason. I appreciate your answer, Lucy. As you can see, I have a lot of catching up to do. Lol. Later.

    Lucy D. replied

    Hi CeeCee,

    Oh yes indeed. Sam and Ric had sex. On the floor of Alexis’ home I believe. While she was still recovering from cancer. I can’t remember what motivated it, but they did it.

    I agree, I don’t get the Sam coddling. The acting is almost mediocre. The Jason/Sam forever love was never apparent to me. In fact I was never a SB fan, so I didn’t really care who Jason was with. I think Becky is a talented actor, who’s long been undervalued on this show, and thought she was too good for him.

    The chemistry between Becky & Billy Miller is apparent to me and I like them together. Not looking forward to the reveal. There’ll be too many scenes with people in no position to throw stones, throwing them.

    Shay replied

    @CeeCeeGirl….Per your above query about Sam….why yes, she did “have sexual relations with that man!”….i.e., a brief (revenge) encounter ala Ric during the latter’s unhappy marriage to Alexis. It happened soon after Sam discovered—to her great dismay—that the Atty.Davis she so loathed was her actual birth madre, and followed the best efforts of the hypocritical Alexis to keep her daughter from Jason because the now Ms. Morgan was injured in the line of her beau’s mafia fire. With the assistance of much overt taunting, teasing and cajoling from her “stepfather,” Sam set up a little tete-a-tete with the ready-and-willing Lansing knowing that Alexis would catch them in the act, which is exactly what happened—such good soapy fun!!!!!!! And yes, Ms. Davis was suffering from lung cancer at the time. (As a matter of fact, I recall it like it were yesterday, because I almost abhorred Alexis then as much as I currently do, and I kept hoping her character would succumb from the disease, but alas, she bounced back from both that and Ric’s adulterous betrayal to have ever more boisterous boinks with various unsuitable men in Port Charles….) Of course, this was many, many moons ago, and Sam has considerably matured since then….wish I could say the same for her mother. (Also, here’s an additional FYI: Alexis once sported a huge, hideous scar from her cancer surgery, but it miraculously disappeared so as to allow her to heave her omnipresent cleavage for what has since seemed an eternity. Just thought I’d throw that extra fact into the mix! LOL.)

    Hi, babes.
    Thanks for the synopsis. It was Rick? I thought it would have been Sonny. I never get enough of hearing about Sonny’s debauchery. Lol. I really need to self-examine here. He is always on my mind. Lol. I AM KIDDING, Shay!!!!! Yet, what do ‘they’ say? There is a fine line between love and hate? Maybe I’m in love with Sonny. Ha!
    You know what I think? Off the topic? Kelly Monaco has spent so much time on the beach ( with her stiletto booties) absorbing the sun, it’s starting to show on her face. She looks older than her forty years. Her skin needs help. That’s too bad. She really is a pretty woman, with a perfect, petite body.
    To watch Alexis and Sam together now, one would never know there had been so much drama between them, in the past. How does one climb such an insurmountable heap of caca? Only in soaps? Lol. Later, bella.

    Shay replied

    Oh, CeeCeeGirl, you do seem to have it bad where “Sonny on the brain” is concerned! Perhaps you should count yourself lucky to suffer from insomnia, because I fear were you to regularly enjoy peaceful slumber, it would be rudely haunted by endless visions of “Don Corinthos!” Now, doesn’t that thought make you shudder? LOL….Rather like the notion of Ric with Sam….and yes, it was just as tawdry and disgusting as you can imagine! (But priceless, all the same, I wish you could have seen the moment Alexis caught a gander of them inflagrante delicto! It was absolutely delicious! I actually preferred it when those two were at such odds…what great viewing!) As for Sam’s romantic past in Port Charles, don’t forget that she also formerly hooked-up with Sonny, before she was paired with Jason. In fact, she had a child with him…a little girl who was stillborn. Hence,—and yes, I am using a comma after it for dramatic effect!!! Haha….—-SonnyBoy managed to impregnate both mother and daughter…whatta guy! Is their no end to his talents????? Having reminded you of that sordid little detail, let me add that while Kelly is an obvious sun-worshipper, she did say on DWTS that she never did the tanning bed thing….thank goodness for small favors! (She also quite likes to party….she is a very fun girl!) Those two things, especially combined, do tend to take their toll on even the most attractive of females. Still, KM remains one of the best-looking babes on the show….and you are so right about her amazing physique!!! At least she hasn’t resorted to those God awful fillers and chop jobs….I should think that the wholly unfortunate examples of those horrific practices floating around the GH set should be enough to keep her from going down that path. I certainly hope so! (There are so many other cutting-edge skin rejuvenation techniques available these days….lasers, microdermabrasion, cryogenic-procedures, etc.) Oh well….enough of the beauty chat for one post! Later, belissima!

    CeeCee replied

    Thanks for answering, Lucy.
    I really truly loved Billy and Becky as a couple….but, this dilemma/imbroglio needs to come to an end and Jake’s identity be known and move on. She is sick. I do not buy the ridiculous idea that her actions justify the ends….not wanting to lose Jason. A sane, honest person would not resort to this kind of subterfuge. Just my opinion. If i can’t hold on to my man by the right ‘means’, then, i don’t want him.
    Whether Jake will be with Liz or not remains to be seen. He may understand her actions. …..Will be hurt and upset, I’m sure, but if his heart is hers, he will forgive her lapse into deceit. I hope Jake will take a step back, take everything in and be on his own until he re-acquaints his ‘being’ with himself.
    And, you are so on the mark, Lucy……there will certainly be a lynch-mob against Liz. ….especially from those who hide behind phony smiles and are oh, so holier-than-thou. Let’s see, Carly, Sam, to name two dutiful wives and mothers.

    Lucy D. replied

    I agree Liz has gone a little psycho, but that’s how they’re writing her–completely out of character. I’m kind of dreading the reveal–you and I share a similar opinion of KeMo’s acting ability. And there’ll be too much of her whining onscreen.

    I have enjoyed this version of Jason and will miss him when he goes back to being a Sonny appendage. (I am so hoping he’s disgusted by his old life and rejects it)

    CeeCee replied

    @Shay.
    Hey, Shay, ma belle,
    Nightmares, indeed. I really would be fine with Sonny, if he were not made out to be this mom-god. He is the worst representation of one. The title of ‘don’ is given to those of high honor, such as a priest or a doctor, or a high ranking person.You said you watch those quaint Italian shows. There are many members of the nobility still hanging ‘around’ in every little Italian hamlet/village. You must have noticed this, yes? The title is en par with maestro, which in Italy, is not restricted to just a music connoisseur. The title may also be used as a sign of curtesy to a teacher/professor. Now, Shay, GOOGLE will tell you that ‘Don’ means ‘boss’. Trust me, it does not. I do not know when this idea was conceived, but who goes around calling a priest, boss? I would think that there is not a true English translation.
    My husband’s grandfather practiced medicine in a little town in Central Italy until twenty years ago, when he immigrated to Boston. He was/is addressed as don Carlo because he is a doctor, NOT a mobster. So, to affix such an honorable title to these criminals, especially Sonny who is not even Italian, is laughable.
    Oh, yes, Kelly Monaco is pretty. I suppose small packages hold many surprises, all real…no artifacts, if I say so myself..Lol.

    CeeCee replied

    @Shay.
    Oops….wasn’t finished, Shay.
    I still think Kelly/Sam is no match for Rebecca/Liz’s beauty. That peaches and cream skin is a testament to no sun whatsoever. I never expose my face to the sun…well, not with my light skin. I would burn in an instant, anyway. Then, again, our genetic make-up has everything to do with our looks and our health.
    So what do you think will happen with Liz, Shay? Do you think Rebecca will leave the stage? Is this the reason TPTB have turned her into an uncontrollable schemer? Or will she just get away with it as Rick and Hayden did? I mean, these two were involved in very fraudulent activities and as a reward, Rick was given the very dignified, temporary position of DA? What a cruel joke. Lol. Only on soaps, right?
    I also want your opinion of the inferno in which Dante finds himself? HaHa! Il signor Alighieri (lol) is getting on my nerves. I don’t like Dillon much, either; but, I derived so much satisfaction when he called DanteBoy a sanctimonious, holier-than-thou, whatever. Ain’t that the truth! GH is chock-full of them.

    Si, CeeCeeGirl! In our world, the title, “Don,” is a sign of respect….even holiness! (I watch my beloved “Don Matteo” every evening, so I am fully aware that it can be attached to a priest….and speaking of that show, I absolutely adore Terence Hill! What a magnificent man…he has charm, charisma, brilliance and such an innate sense of goodness in his eponymous role. And he certainly ain’t hard on the eyes, either! My word…he was in his late 50′s when that show began and now is in his mid-70′s and he still moves with such grace and ease, doing all sorts of athletic feats…must be that magical combination of Italian and German genes he possesses….although he actually looks like a Nordic God! And yes, ..he is my “mature man” crush!!! LOL.) Having said that, I used the term in reference to Sonny only in a most mocking manner….not unlike The Godfather ‘s “Vito Corleone”—-another disgusting example of manhood, no matter the masterful work of the filmmaker who created him. To think that GH believes modeling this mini-mobster after the big screen version as someone to be admired in Port Charles society is just too laughable….on that we certainly can agree! As for Liz vs. Sam in the beauty sweepstakes, they are two entirely different entities, each appealing in their own unique skin….no pun intended! However, as a fellow non-sun worshipper like yourself, I am partial to RH’s porcelain perfection, as I know first-hand how keeping one’s self milky-white is a true path to attaining that ageless look, along with a proper diet and care regime, plus no drinking or smoking, of course! (Yes, I am a stickler for healthy complexion habits….) Therefore, I am all for keeping the lovely Liz in town to face the music for her dastardly deeds….if all the other misbehaving miscreants can stick around, why not Nurse Webber???? Besides, she has to stay put to watch after her increasingly creepy little son….despite his All-American blond boy good looks, that kid gives me the willies! (Not that I would necessarily mind if he helped clear the canvas of a dozen or so annoyances in a disturbing little fit of pique! That could be fun…..need I name names? No, I think NOT!) As for the whole Dante mess, I’m so over his horizontal chacha with Val-Chops….they are both disgusting people….I just want Olivia to give him a good smack upside the head, and the homewrecker to leave Port Chuck, the sooner, the better. (See above notion suggesting action regarding “Little Jake!”) Anyway, I hope you and yours enjoyed a Halloween full of treats….especially that precious “Little Ladybug!” Awww…..may her molar miseries soon be behind her!!!! By the way, I have a costume idea for Jude and you for next year’s “All Hallows’ Eve”…but since I am just about out of time, I shall just have to leave you hanging in suspense for now, although I do promise to get back to you very soon on that particular subject. But be forewarned….you WILL get a real chuckle out of it!!! Later…. Ciao, bella!

    @Shay.
    Hi, ShayShay.
    Oh, I can understand your crush on Terence Hill. That’s how I feel about Sean Connery. That man is still sexy in his seventies.
    Finally, your Valerie (lol) was shamed today. I am very disappointed in myself. I waited so long for this very thing to happen, but I felt so badly for her. What’s wrong with me?
    Halloween was fun for the kids. The homes in my immediate neighborhood are few and far-between…..so we drove from house to house. Most are gated, but we know our neighbors.
    The baby was so confused…..she kept looking at me, then at her father, then at Niko, then back at me. When she saw my brother and brothers-in-law, she started crying. Poor baby.
    I am dying to find out what your idea for next year is…LOL.
    Buonanotte, amica. Luv-ya.

    So if Jake Doe and Elizabeth get married will that make her Elizabeth Doe? Will Jake adopt Cam and Aiden and change Little Jake’s name to Doe too? Just asking!

    Well they did promise romance and we are getting that, lots of bed action this week. I am intrigued about Spin doing facial reconstruction, that is going to be a oh my god light on moment! I felt bad for Cam but he seems to understand it, little Jake is just creepy to me.

    Thing is’
    The Jake reveal is the to be the most suspenseful story!
    Fact is-
    Jason’s reveal has been unclmintic , a snooze.
    The reveal should be building up to a must see climactic reveal and it is blah.
    The Snooze Queens had ample time, months to write a suspenseful reveal and they came up with a computer outing and it is not building up to must see intense reveal, it is stale.

    J&S when with Y&R were lackluster, 2014 Y&R was a snooze fest. J&S simply can not write intriguing high drama.
    And GH is becoming a sappy love-in, and yet not a lot of heartfelt romance just kissing added, everyone has started to kiss ahahaaa stupid not romance.

    GH is not as the other soaps, it is not meant to be traditional as the other soaps, it is GH, it’s unique and stands in its’ own. It is losing its’ being and becoming humdrum.
    The Corinthos are not meant to be the Cleaver family, it never has been harmony nor should it.
    And- Julian has been written into nowhere.

    There really is not romance. It is long go nowhere boring conversations and kissing.
    there is no romantic intrigue. (kiss kiss kiss lol)

    I am not a happy camper LOL ..
    Jason’s reveal should be highly climatic !! not the BLAH as it is.

    3 things that i’m looking forward

    1. James Nigbor ( little Jake ) does this kid have the acting chops… any where near… Spence, Emma, Cameron

    just hearing him tell “Jason” “I know you are…” had my heart racing… for good story ! at last, right ? without thee women… Carly, Liz, and Sam

    the scenes with Sam and Spinelli at the waterfront… oy! just struck me… as Sam gazes at Spinelli wistfully…. ??? loss for words… as she dreamily goes trance as she remembers “Jason” as she stares in to the moonlight… and it catches her profile WITH stilleto … this is GH new leading lady? on the prowl with no more Jason Thompson yikes … woah… REALly : enter… “Jason”

    oy! had to get that out of my system… dang it! she’s near or worse than Alexis

    LOL… i’m just sick knowing the future of GH is resting on Kelly Monaco… w/no Dr. Drake and Billy Miller to be saddled …

    back to little Jake… if he can act… and this gives the audience… some thing any thing somewhere to go… WITH Billy Miller… then have at it… as “Jason” heart opens up to his eldest child

    yeah it seems all fraught and tangled… it would be… for the writers to wring out everything… that is tangible and the fans of Sam and Liz… race to the finish line

    doesn’t it all seems for naught at this point? at one point i’m thinking… at least “Jason” can interact with Jake… yet Daniel Edward is still young enough to bond evenmoreso… so i’m danged it I do and danged if I dont… for my Liz

    here’s hoping James Nigbor acts his heart out…

    2. Anna ! she wanted sleeping pills and got “anti-depressant” ? even Dr. Drake… spare me… wouldn’t give her a simple prescription for sleep.

    as of friday… she certainly looked wound up… dark circles under her eyes… she was chewing on them like candy… even after she heard… yet knew it wasn’t Carlos , after reading the autopsy report

    paging…” Dr. Collins” STAT! make this all right… with our world… GH seriously misfired… with Jon Lindstrom

    even she said it herself… her life with the wsb had her life in jeopardy … she cant’ believe she’s acting this way either….

    this doesn’t bode well at the outset… with no Robin, no Duke, Patrick leaving the show… perhaps with Emma… with Sloane gone…

    3. Nicholas and Hayden : doesn’t it look like Hayden is going to fall in love with Nicholas ? (my dreamteam) and these two head up ELQ? these two simply need to get over it… and support Liz… ( i simply cannot believe all the Liz naysayers ) let’s say for argument sake… ugh! bore bore… Sam and ( i have to wrap my head around this ) Jason… as played by the wasted Billy Miller… have a go at it…

    Nicholas, Hayden, and Liz…. rally around… troupe… and slay Port Charles…

    tidbits :

    i’m still charmed some… with the sophistication of Paul… ie: GH new henchman… on his own… laying waste… (wouldn’t that be nice) to the Corinthos’. why isn’t someone at GH pulling a kathy Bates “Misery” and just lopping off his ankles !?

    I still like … and can’t pin point why… perhaps it’s the to the rescue of and her feminine overture… Sabrina… I wanted her to salsa rumba marumba Carlos cajones

    I read IN SOD issue… that he is in deed alive…. and will be back… just not for a much needed contact visit. so as to let Anna mindset rest and recoop

    Carlos is so ably adept at mixing with the whole cast…

    ie: Jason Thompson… I only have 3 husband material… and it apears one has been messed with… it’s a tragic turn.. that the writers aren’t strong enough or with enough imagination…

    Dr. Patrick Drake
    Nicholas Cassadine
    Dante Falconeri
    Ned Ashton

    with Patrick leaving… Ned already off… GH needs to hire Ingo Rademacher

    oy! two weeks in the the new shows airing with the nuHEAD WRITING TEAM

    I’m hoping

    Carlos: “…a much needed *contact”

    *contract

    You are correct, Su. The Jake reveal/storyline has lost its steam for me. Zero interest, at this point.

    get the jake story out already! this is getting boring and frustrating. I wish the Sam character wouldn’t wear blouses that expose half her boobs.. it make her look trashy which she is not I would rather her look classy.

    Well I’m not convinced little Jake is really Jake— since bringing him back was RC’s idea if he had remained head writer I believe the kid would had turned out to be a clone– so don’t know if the new writers are going that way or the old brainwashing and plastic surgery on some other poor kid to make him look like Liz and Jason’s son route, but I think eventually we will find little Jake did die.

    As for the Jake Jason reveal, I’m okay with the fact it took this long yet what I find silly, is how clueless Sam is about it. If had written this story I would have left Liz in the dark, and I would have made Sam be one of the first people to suspect he was Jason, and then have her go out to prove it. Of course she would have found the proof on the day of Liz and Jake’s wedding and she would crash it, revealing to all that Jake was Jason and all hell would break loose— that way the character Liz would have been a victim of circumstances rather than this pathetic woman who had to lie to keep her man– how can she have any self respect knowing she is so desperate she had to keep the truth from him– at least my way neither Liz or Sam would have to been portrayed so lame– Liz for lying and Sam for being brain dead that she can’t see her husband standing right in front of her.

    Little Jake spent too much time with Helena. He needs a lot of help.

    Side note: I think Jean and Shelly (Jelly) are doing the best they can “with what they got”. I don’t think we’ve seen a month of their work yet. I wont judge them, I need to see more. I am going to be patience and give them a chance to get this show back on track. I will wait and see how they do by February sweeps. In the meantime, I will continue to think “positive” thoughts about my favorite show.
    Good Luck, JELLY…

    ie: just to put it out their…. the nuHEAD writing team (s) premiered starting the week of 10 / 12 / 15

    so it hasn’t even been 2 weeks yet

    oy! the above post stating… that once the reveal of “Jason”

    out the door will be : Jason Thompson and Billy Miller !

    i can’t even go their yet… for Dr. Patrick Drake (one of my “husbands” has been messed with)

    I can’t imagine what BM must be thinking of GH production… he left Y&R, on the heels of a coop de ta, all cylinders firing, at the height of / or pinnacle of all things reign… Billy Abbott

    will it be Jason Morgan or Jason Quartermaine

    wow if they don’t cull from the richness of the Quartermaine
    wow if they go all out Corinthos’ dullard

    Are there “rumors” about Billy Miller leaving GH? I hope not. Losing JT is enough. I am hearing “rumors” that Michael Muhney may replace JT. Have you heard anything about that?

    su0000 replied

    Hey Patrick..
    New writers set their pace as soon as they arrive via first story entrance..
    They had months to prepare to write their entrance, to set their pace..

    Y&R – Pratt entered with a BANG setting his pace/style.
    GH – RC entered with a BANG set his pace/style.
    DOOL new writers entered with BANG setting their pace/style.
    GH – J&S entered with a whimper setting their pace/style.

    It is common for new writers to be packed and ready with their entrance.
    Announcing- I’m here!

    JELLY may be better at love stories whereas Ron might have been better with twists and action. What might have been if the THREE of them worked together?

    Reply

    Sly replied

    Good idea Timmm. If Ron and JELLY were able to work together, we would finally have the show that we want.

    Hey, maybe Ron can be “recurring” like some of the other actors. lol…

    Is it true that Ron still works for ABC TV?

    KansasGuest replied

    I think RC has a deal for developing primetime shows with ABC.
