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.
