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!
