Born out of a conflict between Franco’s (Roger Howarth) growing fondness and time spent helping little Jake (Hudson West) through a tough time in his childhood, and Jake’s real father Jason (Billy Miller), it will prove to be the springboard for a major torque in the story between the bitter rivals on General Hospital.
According to this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newstands now, GH head writers Shelly Altman and Jean Passanante preview that another event will trigger Jason’s memory of the ruthless encounter between the two men from their past that sums up their enmity with each other.
Viewers can look for Franco to seeingly try to make Jason see he is a changed man, but according to the GH preview on Jason’s memories and the Franco feud, the scribes shared: “The return of his memories won’t necessarily turn him back into exactly the man he was when he disappeared from Port Charles. So the real impact of Jason’s memories returning is yet to be felt. We, the audience should worry, however, that the return of Jason memories causes a tweak in Franco and makes him seem to start obsessing over Jason and Sam … and resenting them … a little too much.”
