109 May 9th, 2016 GH’s Head Writers Shelly Altman & Jean Passanante Preview To Look For Renewed Connection Between Jason and Mob Boss Sonny!

Now that the groundwork has been laid for Jason to have his memories back, GH head writers  Shelly Altman and Jean Passanante are set to prove that the year and more long wait that viewers endured for Jason to remember his connections to the past will be worth it.  In an interview with TV Line, the scribes point out what having his memories back will do to certain relationships.

As for what it does to Jason and Sam (Kelly Monaco), Passanante notes:  “Remembering everything gives him the history he felt but couldn’t fully understand until now.”  Next on the list for the head writers is to put Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason back in each other’s orbit.  Will it be as mob enforcer and mob boss/friend?

Altman revealed: “That’s the one deep relationship he had yet to recover — his bond with Sonny.  So Jason will want to reach out to him in a way he hasn’t been able to since his return.  He also (now) knows that he can call on Sonny for help if he should need it in the future, And rest assured, he will one day need it.”

Passanante was quick to point out: “Jason will have to come to terms with that (violent) past. But remembering doesn’t mean he will suddenly revert to the man he was before he was presumed dead.”

So, are you glad that the head writers are finally bringing Sonny and Jason back into each other’s world? Do you hope Jason will t end up being Sonny’s enforcer once again?  Share your thoughts on what the head scribes share in the comment section below.

    the only real relationships… I’ve seen… since Billy Miller debuted on General Hospital

    3… that come to mind

    1. Liz
    2. Lil’ Jake… and that was w/ the original James Nigbor
    3. Monica

    LOL in exasperation

    CRINGEWORTHY brotherly bonding love … oh I get it… R – E – A – L- l – y

    ROLLING LOL… throw in Carly and this threesome is all GH “wants”

    YIKES

    Billy Miller must be out of his mind

    all his memories are ON…. REELING

    the fullout focus is going to be on him

    giving the actors who portray Sonny and Carly… an easy let out

    because “you” can’t tell me… that with his memories back…. it’s going to be instantaneous combustion… and make it like it was

    no chance

    Shelly and Jean…. rolling LOL…

    oh my god… this doesn’t even count… Sam and then we have Alexis and Julian

    I guess I should be thanking the soap gods… that Liz was not a part of … or even mentioned

    for this momentous ginormous entourage… “he’s back”

    this unveiling… “All hail… ” the wonderment of

    I think Liz needs to pack up “nu little Jake” things… and just dump him at Sam and Jason doorsteps

    and adopt James Nigbor and move ON

    Liz is such an important part of his story – she should have been included, including the revelation that he fell in love with her very recently. I hope this is dealt with in a very real way.

    Liz was a one night stand not some grand love affair. I look forward to watching all the friendships mature w billy Miller… I have loved him making the role his and the lack of memories allowed that to happen! I’m never sure what to say to nay Sayers the I’m so done w gh if this happens people! I’m not sure why they expect a daily show to have each story be as thrilling and exciting as their favorite episode??? But for longer than any other tv show the soaps have survived and I’m grateful!

    Omar replied

    I agree also..These two writers need to go..They done nothing original since replacing the previous head writer and they are rehashing the same old..Someone mention on this blog, that we need new and young writers on the soaps, which I so agree…New ideas and innovative plots..BTW, Billy Miller is a ok actor but in my opinion was not a good choice to play Jason, just saying!

    This Jason story represents maybe the single greatest missed opportunity in soap history. It’s taken what seems like 2 years for the character to go from Point A to…Point A? There was so much potential for good soapy drama that has been squandered. The simplest and most satisfying thing would have been for Jason to have reverted to his original Jason Quartermaine identity, putting him at odds with his Sonny / Carly / mob past and also at odds with himself, while exploring his emotional connection to his Quartermaine family. As it is he has been kept at arm’s length from any of his former significant relationships with little emotional payoff. And now this – bringing him back to his role as the object of both Carly and Sonny’s latent sexual desire? Count me a disappointed but still loyal viewer – long live GH!

    Que4u…Really appreciated your comment above about not knowing what to say to the nay-sayers and their expectations for a daily show. Especially those who harp the same issues all of the time. Save yourself the trouble.

    You can’t hit a home run everyday, and not every character is going to be a favorite to everyone. But like you I just am glad we still have GH to watch, and right now I’m enjoying most episodes. Must admit that I am tired of what seems too many bad guys and Corrinthos who don’t have to pay for their crimes.

    I’m really looking forward to the return of the friendship between Sonny and Jason. They were always there for each other through the good and bad times. I really want to see Jason back as his partner. He needs to realize it is safer for Sam and Danny him in the mob. He can put his family first. Sam loved and accepted him mob and all. Don’t erase that part of Jason Morgan’s history with Sam and Sonny. About time we have the two most talented actors Billy and Maurice sharing scenes. We want more Sason and of the bromance.

  13. Cheryl says:

    To answer your question, do I want Jason to be in Sonny’s orbit, I will have to say no. I am so tired of the mob, I cannot see straight. Every time the fans say that we want less mob, TPTB add on more mob characters. The mob families are numerous. We have Sonny’s, Julian’s, and Johnny is controlling his from jail. At this point you might as well add Nikolas to the mob fray because he is going around ordering hits on people and is turning himself into being someone Helena would be proud of. He now runs the Cassadine mob! You might as well change the name of General Hospital to My Fair Mob. GH has become less and less about the hospital and more about the mob activities.

    Now as far as the Jason story line goes, the writers have taken much too long to fully flesh everything out. It is to the point that I no longer care. We were told that we were going to get a major payoff once Liz’s deception concerning Jason came to light. That didn’t happen. It was one big, gigantic dud. It was a major disappointment. I was expecting a jaw dropping, I must eat my popcorn while watching this moment. Instead I got I a telemarketing phone call would be more dramatic than what I was getting.

    I don’t blame the actors for this in any way. Everything boils down to the writing. If it isn’t there, then there is not much the actors can do. I’m still trying to figure out why they switched out the original Jake for a kid that looks like he could be Lucky’s offspring instead of Jason’s. Granted the original kid played it a little creepy, but if I lived with Helena for the past 4 years of my life, I would be a little creepy too. Chances are, that’s how he chose to play it.

    To make a long story short, the viewers are not going to get their pay off concerning Jason’s memory returning. Like the Liz deception revelations, this too will be a big, fat dud. It won’t be Billy Miller’s fault because on today’s episode he excelled with the material he was given. You can see why he wins an Emmy every time he is nominated. Today’s Jason centric show reminded me of how a powerful actor Billy is. Turning back to clock to his YR days. The shows that came about following Delia’s death were some of the most powerful ones that I have ever seen YR do. When Billy Abbott had the what if dreams about Delia. It was like the song Butterfly Kisses. Billy imaging what Delia would be like throughout the years. That was some powerful acting.

    Then again, that is my opinion. But is also comes from a place of being a loyal GH viewer since 1979.

    I am glad Jason is finally getting his memories back! And I love that Jason will begin to understand his friendship with Sonny. He was such a huge part of Jason’s life since he decided to be Jason Morgan. As for Jason and Sam… I have always loved them and felt Jason could truly only be himself with her. Loved their scenes today! They were phenomenal. Can’t wait to see what Jelly come up with next!

    I can’t wait for Jason to finally be back as Somny’s business partner. Carly best friend, and Sam’s husband and Danny’s father. I love all the mob war stuff on GH. It’s been going on since the late 70′s when Luke came on the show. I think the mob makes GH different from the rest of the soaps. It makes it interesting! I love the action and shootouts. Everyone says they are sick of the mob on GH but it’s been apart of the show for decades!!

    I liked Jake because while he had an essence of Jason, he wasn’t full on Jason Morgan. I have watched GH since I was 7 in 1971 and I have never considered abandoning the show until now. Listening to characters and fans say that Alexis is a hypocrite for defending and loving Julian and his “awful mobster” lifestyle as they all defend head mobster Sonny/Carly and all have fond memories of mobster Duke is making me ill. I can’t continue to watch as the show canonizes Sonny and family despite killing and terrorizing others in town. Sonny killed a mob boss in cold blood at a meeting of the families and there was never any reprecussions — no family revenge —nothing.
    If Jason goes backward and becomes Sonny’s enforcer and Carly’s whipping boy again in conjunction with Julian being demonized for being in the same line of work as Sonny, I will finally end my frustration and quit watching.

    The job I thought was to provide a diagram,story concept that engulf the cast of major characters in a drama and provide the listner, viewers in this case with a meaningful dramatic view, or life, i.e, as in the BB, the task of this past year the Transgender former life of Maia, the complete history of the character, and everything that comes with telling the viewer of her life, parental history, her father’s dramatic past,being, etc,etc.siblings relationships, and explain how we understand her psychosis, why she is driven, and the relationships ,why she does what she does at Forrester, etc, etc, and those in general Forrester do what theymdo, and all their psychosis…..this is real writing, character drivden, based on history, character history….I write,all this,to,make one point

    :GH is a complete mess in this regard…….The mob story line, is awuful.GH jumped at the chance to get Billy Miller , from the Y&R, (I don’t know or care why he left, we as viewers have no reason to guess, or speculate or gossip about) GH had no real story to unveil upon his arriving on the canvas……they had already extended the mob family,and the historymtominclude major characters, Sam, her mother, and Sonny’s enemies, and his new enforcer, Sean, and their backstories…..but the viewers want drama and history, family history, and GH always tries to capitalize on getting big name stars, from other shows a day showcase them, and in doing so, they waste a year of their time acting, and in this case, almost 18 months, with this dribble……Jason getting his memory back and forth…..and getting new people to head the ship, with former,star writers who are trying to regain their luster, and run from their failures, JP, ruined All My Children…..and no now she is in charge here……..I won’t watch GH anymore for two reasons: Luke is gone/Laura is gone, and
    The Quartermaine family has died.,,this represents the mess we have to live with, watch…you can have it, that ant the suits,and not ABC are focused on on making money, and not telling stories….thanks but no thanks.

    I am very disappointed in the way Jason’s return has been handled up to and including this latest fiasco of a dramatization! It made no sense that the whole time he was Jake he,and Sam never showed any sign of romantic feelings for one another and as soon as he’s revealed as Jason, and mind you it wasn’t because he remembered, all of a sudden he and Sam are,all over one another. Didn’t make sense then and I still don’t buy it. I don’t think Billy Miller and Kelly Monaco have a tenth of the chemistry that he has with Becky! And now Jason and Sam are so self-righteous about Franco treating Jake that they make me sick! When I see scenes with either of them, whether they are together or with others I just fast-forward. Don’t want him back in the mob or with Sam. Would love to see him become more involved with the Quartermaines.

    Loved Monday’s show and the fact that Liz wasn’t involved at all. Its about time he figures out that he loves Sam and wanted a life with her for years and all that it meant to him. Robin was very fitting since she did save his life and all and taught him how to love…. cant wait for scenes when Robin is there in the flesh. Carly was just too funny, love her and Jason’s connection and really , really hope that Jason now understands his connection with Sonny. I look for him to need Sonnys help soon because I really doubt that the stalker is Franco or Heather…. totally look forward to renewed brotherhood and friendship. Thrilled to be rid of Jake Doe and finally have Jason Morgan back!! I’m actually good with the mob, if he chooses to go back, personally I think we are overlooking a huge part of history if he doesn’t.

    His connection with Sonny? Sonny befriended and took under his wing a young man with a brain injury so severe he lost his love and ties to a family that adored him and a chance at fulfilling his potential as a doctor SAVING lives, not taking them.

    While Sonny claimed to love Jason, he sent him into the line of fire from an age younger than his own sons, Michael and Morgan, who he wont let near his business.

    Sonny loves his children and fought tooth and nail to keep them…yet stole Jason from Alan and Monica, Avery from Ava and Michael from AJ. It’s too maddening to be “entertainment.”

    Not too wild about it if Jason goes back into the mob. Done with that scene. I’l buy it if Jason and Sonny have a friendship of “I’ll be there for you when you need me” but not as an enforcer. BM’s portrayal of Jason is definitely not stone cold; he emotes a lot, so I think this Jason needs to be on a different track.

    Honestly, I really like the new Jason and I am tired of this whole mob boss thing. I think it’s cool if they can reconnect as friends, but piss on Jason being Sonny’s enforcer. He’s nobody’s punk.

    On another note, I’m I getting it wrong, or have they re-written history? Wasn’t it Hornsby who shot Sonny? That’s what I recall when he first recruited (or should I say blackmailed) Ava into working with him. He made her go to the crime boss meeting and present a name, which she picked on the spot.

    And finally, I HATE how Sonny acts like this self-righteous guy who has to avenge Duke’s death. What about him killing AJ. Where’s the revenge for that? I think it sucks that the writers swept that under the rug so easily and how Michael totally forgives this and has taken back the Corinthos name.

    what better way for the whole shebang to lay waste and move on !

    Justin replied

    Timmm, I can tell you how it will turn out……Jason will be angry for about two episodes, then Carly and Sonny will get it through to him that AJ was a bad man and deserved to die. All will be well then with the trio of terror.

    rebecca1 replied

    Yes, I seem to recall Paul shot Sonny. I thought we actually saw it during a recount or memory from Paul.

    As for hypocrisy, it galls me each time I need to hear the ridiculous dialogue between Sonny and Carly as they judge others. The absurdity of Carly judging Alexis for defending Julian…as if Carly hasn’t done and wouldn’t do anything to protect Sonny, including lying to Michael about Sonny killing AJ.

    And suddenly. Julian is weak ? His own daughter Sam tells Michael her father is no match for Sonny? Since when? Doesnt he have a “family” of soldiers and ties as well? And why turn against Julian to Michael? Would we ever see Michael or Morgan go against Sonny (other than Michael vs Sonny re AJ…which should never have been forgiven).

    The relationship dynamics and loyalties are skewed.

    Personally, I don’t want Jason back in the mob, he’s better as he is with a mind of his own and not a liking for violence. When he returned as Jake , he remembered Liz and called out Jake, that was the start of what could have been an epic love story. Yet, you had to change it, make Liz lie to him while loving him, he loved her and the boys, he was funny , loving and compassionate. That story should have been great and then give him his memory back and let him sort through it all. I have never felt he and Sam to be a great love even though it’s pushed so hard. He needs to remember his love, friendship and past with Liz before and after little Jake as well as AJ and the rest if his real family, not just mob friends. Let him really remember loving the Q. family and be part of it finally. He can be a great dad to both of his sons, but don’t rehash the Sam thing, they seem so un-inlove now more than ever. When you destroyed Liz, you destroyed them too. Let Jason live his own life and figure it all out.

    Again, I say: What a great opportunity TPTB missed when they made Carlos a criminal. He has so much charisma and sex appeal; he’s the kind of actor that was once a staple of GH–relatable, energetic, magnetic, mesmerizing. But, no, TPTB turned him into a thug–UGH!

    I agree Nancy. There is something about Carlos that makes me think of the old GH and all of those magnetic and mesmerizing characters that were decent people that you rooted for. Why must everyone be tied to a mob family. I don’t root for them. I root against them, but the problem is that this show is written for the mob-related characters to shown in a good light. Ugh, I’m done with this show.

    BTW, it has gotten so bad that I wish they would kill off Franco and bring Roger back in a role more worthy of his immense talents (a la Todd Manning). They killed ATWT and are destroying GH now too.
    And, just to think Ron Calivati got canned for this disaster!!

    The end of ATWT was horrible. And that disaster was nowhere near as awful as what happened to GL. Madre mia, when shows turn, I get very nervous. The repercussions can prove fatal.

    So peeps, Fluke wasnt that bad after all? This Jason memory story is so bad. It has been milked to death! AND, not to dismiss some of the Jason Morgan fans BUT most of us wanted Jason Quartermaine back! Him going home would have had a ton of stories attached. No we have to watch Sonny pull Jason’s strings again to clean up Sonny’s messes and try and protect his two moronic sons! DEADnte gets a pass. Even though he is clueless, he went off and became a man!

    I was so bored by the Jason memory flashback / hallucination episode, that I actually stopped watching with only nine minutes left to go on the DVR recording. I chose nine minutes extra sleep over finishing this slug of an episode.

    two things… well… practically the whole ep just did me in

    but… I didn’t think it was … right… for Michael and Sam to be talking about how they missed the Jason of ole

    when they tried talking to him… about his past… their was no connection… ??? AND Sam is head over heals in love with him? and Jason in return…. ???

    the metamorphosis that triggered his comeback… (ala Bo return on DAYS) that motorcycle… with our lord and savior “Sonny”… in commanding stance complete with pinky ring at a moments notice menacing leer

    J & S Neatly bow tied another ep…. with Sam singing a lullaby

    Sonny and Jason redux is the WORST possible news. I have always loathed Sonny, and the character of Jason Morgan is a smarmy, self-righteous cartoon no matter who is playing him. As much as I pity Billy Miller being stuck in this thankless role, I pity the viewers, whose fingers have to be sore from ffing his scenes, a whole lot more. The writers should have left Jason at the bottom of the harbor, then had Sonny and Sam (one of the dullest characters in the history of soaps) follow him. UGH.

    I have to assume your fingers are sore from ffing. Hard to know what transpired when you do and comment on it.

    I agree, Rose. How can one judge scenes without watching? I’ll tell you, though…even if a story is dull, I enjoy watching these wonderful actors doing their best to make it work. This is especially true of Billy Miller, Finola Hughes, Laura Wright, Maura West and many others . They give us their best regardless of the sometimes repetitive stories and/or corny dialogue.

    Great he finally has his memories back – do I want Jason Morgan mob enforcer 2.0 ?
    Um….no !
    Personally I’d like to see him deal with what he knows and take a different path….not necessarily as Dr.Jason Quartermaine either.

    I think Liz and Jason have more passion together. Sam is just there, I feel Jason’s love for Sam has been pushed , forced. I wanted Jason to have his memories by not this forced thing with Sam I’m seeing, there’s really no chemistry at all. They are boring together.

    RC left GH; Jul 24, 2015..
    It’s going on near a year of J&S, and their year long build up to Jason’s reveal,= and it stunk, it was lame..
    It was downtrodden, limp, uneventful, anticlimactic, considering a year build up to the awaited huge moment, the Jason reveal..(it was horribly dull)
    And- to add to it, it’s sweeps!

    I gotta say; I can’t imagine GH getting worse than it is… (but I’m sure it will :(

    I was imaging something spectacular!

    I guess you didn’t like it huh? Welcome to the WTF club. Who wants to take bets on how much longer the show will be on, ? Not wishing for it. Just seeing the writing on the wall.

    Oh goody. Just what I have been waiting for throughout this entire saga of Jake/Jason and his long-lost memories . . . NOT. Seriously? This is the way they’ve decided to go?

    What happened to all the talk (BS would be a better term, I guess, as it turns out) about how having women writers would bring back the romance, etc.? If mob-mob-mob is what TPTB want, they should hire back Guza, who at least did mob-mob-mob skillfully, much as I disliked it. This is the worst of both worlds; not only do we get mob-mob-mob, but it isn’t even “good mob-mob-mob,” if there is such a thing.

    As others have pointed out, having Jason get his memories back as Jason Q. would have been a bold and different direction; this, instead, is retreading the same ground that’s been done to death.

    At this point, I think the story with Tracy is worth watching, and that’s about it. The rest of the show . . . is pretty much a total misfire—a muddled, unfocused mess. (P.S. Where is Laura?)

    Justin replied

    It’s as I predicted with Laura. I knew that we wouldn’t see her very much. This supposed storyline with Helena’s gift is going nowhere. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see Laura in September and they tell us what happened, offscreen.

    I want all of Jason’s memories to come back to him and for those memories to become integrated in his psyche. It’s insulting and incredulous that the writers would have us believe Jason would still have retrograde amnesia from the accident caused by A.J. yet able to remember everything from the time he became Jason Morgan.
    Jason needs to know it all, including his calling to become a Doctor- A man who would have dedicated his life to saving people instead of killing them. He needs to not only remember , but to truly connect emotionally to all of those he loved and who loved him as Jason Q. If the writers would just allow his full memory banks to come back we would have a real interesting and complex guy who won’t be able to be the lackey Stone Cold was for Sonny.
    It really ticks me off that all Carly and Sonny want is for that to happen- If both of characters really loved Jason, they would be glad to know that he wants to stay out of the killing business,harms way, and just appreciate his friendship as the good, ethical, caring and generous man is was meant to be before becoming the hit man for a so called “Mob Boss”

    AJ did not cause the accident. Stupid Jason jumped into the car with someone he knew was drunk to stop him. Who knows if he hadn’t done that there might have not been an accident. Who is so dumb as to get in a car with someone driving drunk .they caused this themselves. I guess Guza needed some way to put all this on AJ.. We know poor little saint Jason was not to blame. I don’t think Jason will ever stop being the mob killer. Just thinking about this made me shut the show off.Same church , different pew with these so called writers.

    I’ve been watching the show from the beginning-
    Jason was a passenger in the car that a drunken A.J was driving. A.,J caused the accident. Ned covered for him.

    Agree that replacing Ron Carlivati with Jean and Shelly was shortsighted. Ron’s writing was the best and the Academy agreed as many of the reels were his writing! Bring him back in some capacity.
