177 September 25th, 2017 THIS WEEK ON GH: “If There’s Two Jasons, Where Is The Other One Now?”

Courtesy/ABC

General Hospital starts to unravel the tale of two Jasons, according to the latest promo for the action this week on the ABC daytime drama series.

With Patient Six (Steve Burton) on the loose, and Franco (Roger Howarth) discovering the truth about Jason having a twin, the stage is set for explosive and emotional drama.

Watch the promo after the jump, where Scott (Kin Shriner) says to Franco, “If there’s two Jasons, where is the other one now?” But cut to an unmasked Patient Six trying to make his great escape from the creepy facility in Russia where he has been apparently kept against his will.

So, what do you think of the story thus far involving the return of Steve Burton? Intrigued on how it will play out? Comment below.

    HaHaHaHaHa!!!!!! Love the understated humor, T.
    Where is the the other Jason now? “Drew” did not die….it is obviously SB–Jason 1……I could be wrong again.
    I was so sure Franco was a twin.

    Timmm replied

    Thank you dear! Drew is Billy Miller. Jason is Jason Morgan and before A.J. ran him into a tree, Jason Quartermaine. I like it, it keeps Franco on the outside and Miller and Burton in scenes together. Imagine Sam having to make a choice?

    Silvana replied

    Thank God it’s not Franco !

    Steve replied

    If the show is cancelled and David Hayward is revealed as the owner of that clinic, then
    1 – Nikolas
    2 – Emily
    3 – Georgie
    4 – Morgan (ugh!)
    5 – Helena

    Heather ‘s family name was Grant. I suspect that “patient 6″ is probably Matthew Grant, who allegedly fell into the water. We’ll see ..

    Reply

    Steve replied

    I thought that Zach (not Matthew) Grant just might be related to Heather, but she was the daughter of the Webber’s housekeeper — thus not a wealthy background. Heather’s early storylines featured a constant scheming to get more money (one of the reasons she sold Steven Lars on the black market).

    With these writers, however, they could ignore that just like they’re now implying Heather and Susan were closer than played back then.

    Celia replied

    Thanks, T. I meant BM, Jason 2….. I do get confused–I have a small brain??? LOL.
    I don’t think it’s so much of a hardship for Sam….she’ll want them both. Don’t berate me, ( I know you like Sam), but Kelly is the wrong actress for this particular situation. There will be more breathless weeping, mumbling and …”who do I pick?… I love them both!!!!”
    Of course, she needs to express emotion, unfortunately she elicits neither compassion nor admiration from me. Where is the “AWESOME” acting???? I am a cryer, T, but this woman is so wooden….except for the tear sponges she has in her eyes, there is no body language. She does not bring me to tears, as Maura West, Genie Francis, and Laura Wright have. Kelly is no drama goddess.

    Drew is Heather’s. Franco is Susan’s….as is Jason 1. Jason 1 and Franco are the twins. And Kiki is Nina’s . LOL.

    So Betsy is lying AGAIN! Clearly, Helena took Drew(Billy) to the island. That’s who Jake saw during stupid scarecrow story. Billy got his new face when AVA hit him with her car. Robin saw Drew in Creighton Clark story BEFORE the car crash. same DNA.
    I am sure there are still holes but as long as Steve is realJason and I get Stecky, I’m OK!

    Rebecca1 replied

    I think it’s going to be about the conflict for Sam. She’ll love both. I doubt Liz will suddenly go back to Jake/Jason. She and Franco are great together. However, Sam loves “new” Jason ala Drew. She now has a son by both brothers. Drew/Jake/Jason will be the settled down version; Jason/Stone Cold will probably return as Sonny’s henchman. Personally? I’d rather Sam stick with “Drew”.

    Sue M. replied

    I like the one who is playing Jason Now!! Do not want and switching around at all!
    He is not Jason ,he is his twin who did not die..

    NaniGram replied

    I agree on both accounts. I prefer Sam with Drew (Billy Miller), and while I hope Elizabeth doesn’t immediately get involved with Jason (Steve Burton), I look forward to their onscreen chemistry and eventually ending up together. I’m okay with it taking its time and building, just like their original relationship. It’s definitely going to be an interesting ride.

    Tracy Runco replied

    I so agree. DNA with twins would be the same. but there is no mistaking those blue eyes and that built and that kissass man who can only be Jason Morgan and the only thing that makes good soapy drama. PC will be thrown for a loop

    Grant Putnam replied

    Now the writers are bringing in Tamara Braun as Drew’s wife to build his backstory. Just a matter of time before the rest of Drew’s family appears, maybe they will cast olJake as his son and have a ‘tale of 2 Jake kids’ sub plot lmao. So far it’s not soapy at all, very cartoonish (except for the flashbacks Betsy had today), there is still time to save this storyline. For once can they create something original and get this right? Ugh, I’m asking too much…..

    Sue M. replied

    Nope! His twin! He left the show.. I like who’s playing Jason Now!

    Violet Lemm replied

    Sue, I almost jumped off my sofa, the day he got out of bed to help Ava, and that’s pretty hard to do for an 85 yr.old. I’am yelling to myself about his eyes and his live, action figure, body. Don’t laugh guys. I may be old, but not dead yet!
    If we can believe what we see, than there is no doubt about which Jason that is.

    Becca replied

    That build is not there anymore. Billy has Sky blue eyes.

    MV Lauer replied

    Jason was born 9/81, Helena didn’t arrive in PC until 11/81 and she was only interested in destroying the Spencers. She had no interest in Jason until a few years ago when she thought she could use him as a soldier.

    Celia replied

    Hi, MV Lauer,
    I have only been watching for three years, or so……I am familiar with the bare minimum of GH life.
    So, SB/Jason 1 is supposed to be around the 35-36 -year- old range? Really? Born in ’81? WOW.
    He looks his age…close to 50. As does Roger Howarth. They both look so much older than Miller.
    TPTB made a boo boo, here. So unrealistic.

    Celia replied

    I think so, too, Karen. Betsy is a liar. Who is Stecky? Steve and Becky? I haven’t been watching for long.
    I hope the “holes” you mention will be filled. But, in my short experience with GH, I would not count on it….too iffy.
    Oh, sure, we will eventually know who MrMask is….but, have some finality? I don’t know….

    Becca replied

    Billy Miller is 38 Just turned 38. Steve Burton turned 47 in June I think. Billy is 9 years younger than Steve

    dmr replied

    That scarecrow story was so stupid! This storyline will turn out to be disappointing, because I am not a fan of the Carson and Jasam Show 24/7/365. No thank you. (Although, I do like Steve Burton, it’s the others I could do without).

    @su0000.
    Hi, su,
    I have said from the onset that Heather and Helena worked their magic in this. You quickly said the same thing.
    This is a brainstorming story concocted just for Burton. But, will past details concur with what is now being told by Betsy? I don’t know….but, I’m sure those avid fans who are long-time watchers will find plenty of holes and mistakes within the rewritten GH history.
    Funny you said you and your friends said Franco needs to be a Q. My sisters said the same thing. He is becoming too superfluous…..Elizabeth cannot be enough to keep the character afloat, or relevant.
    What if Jason 1 and Franco were borne of Susan; and Jason 2 borne of Heather?…. is “Drew” Jason 2, or was there a fourth baby? LOL.
    TPTB had better come up with a feasible story where these three guys are concerned….not looking forward to another FlukeFlop. I just want to believe it. You know….so I can say to myself, “OK, I’ll buy that!”

  4. Pat says:

    Be interesting if 1) Steve Burton Jason is -in fact- the real Jason & Billy Miller Jason isn’t….the BM Jason turns out to be the real imposter while SB Jason is trying to do everything in his power to get back to Port Charles. 2) BM Jason, while as ‘cool’ as he has been, (& brought a warmth to Stone Cold) is really vicious & will be a threat to Sam, Sonny, & most of PC. SB Jason will, once again, save the day. Maybe BM Jason is operating under the Cassadine powers or he truly is very bad. I don’t know how Franco wil figure into all of this, but maybe he is the twin of SB Jason. I’m 90% sure good ole Valentin has his hands dirty in all of this, too!

    Tracy Runco replied

    I don’t want Drew nasty because i love the fact we are getting another Q and I do like him and Sam together. which is like Days. Roman, Marlena and John, I am sure Helena is behind this, She did curse Sam. She sent back the fake to screw all of PC.

    Me, and 4 of my friends agree, Franco will be revealed as a Quartermain,
    All are posting wherever, and so far no one agrees with them or me..
    Franco will be Quartermain,,

    Heather holds the truth and eventually she will bring the truth out, that Franco is a Q..

    It most likely goes back to the beginning and the births in the 70′s/80′s whenever.. Heather was involved in most everything back then..

    Becca replied

    He’s not Bad either. They will loose if they try to make him a bad person.

    Becca replied

    Heck no. He’s a twin. He’s being used. A lot of backlash if they try to make him bad.

    Anytime a writer tries to rewrite history it’s always a big mistake and it’s never enjoyable to watch when you saw the original they’re trying to change.

    Tracy Runco replied

    They aren’t rewriting history. We never saw Susan Moore give birth on screen. She just show up at the Q house with Jason in hand. So we never knew what happened and back in that day. She could have been having twins and no one knew it. So that story is very possible.

    Reply

    MV Lauer replied

    Heather was committed in 1981 when all this was supposed to be taking place.

    Steve replied

    Tracy is right, the writers found a “window” to make this plausible — similar to creating a pocket period where Heather & Scotty could have spawned Franco.

    While we saw Susan on screen in 1981, Jason’s birth was SORASed when Steve Burton came on in the early 90s, throwing the timeline out the window.

    Jovin replied

    We have to remember…1981 was the on screen date. Due to aging, Jason is well over 40 on the show, so the 1981 date is meaningless. That’s why soaps rarely mention the year something happened because they have to be fluid with years. I have learned to just go with the story on soaps. When it comes right down to it, it is an hour of escapism a day. It does not affect our lives to the point where it really matters if Heather was institutionalize or not in 1981. We all know she has no problem getting in and out of facilities! Lol. I’m rather enjoying this story!

    MV Lauer replied

    Heather was involved in a major story in 1981. She was committed and escaping but she was murdering Diana and framing Annie during her escapes, i really don’t think she was also blackmailing Betsy to hide a twin.

    Steve replied

    MV

    Just to clarify, while it was initially implied that Heather killed Diana, it was actually Heather’s mother (Alice Grant) who killed Diana to protect Heather.

    Reply

    MV Lauer replied

    I forgot about that! Thank you, it was a great story. But my point was mostly that Heather was quite busy at the time they are claiming she was helping Susan, who she wasn’t really as close to as they are making it seem.

    your opinion. Mine Steve and Bily are both great actors. but Steve is Jason. He played him for over 2 decades and that face is the face of Jason Morgan.

    So what, Steve Burton left GH to venture on another soap. He can’t decide whether he wants to stay or not.. I like who’s playing Jason NOW!!

    dmr replied

    I think they are both great actors and I like how they have played Jason differently. I think Billy Miller brought a more softer and sincere side to Jason. Actually, I liked Billy Miller best as Jake Doe, and dare I say, with Elizabeth (who I find incredibly boring and one-tone dimensional). I like Steve Burton, however, I am not looking forward to the return of the “Stone Cold Show.” I don’t miss the Guza era, when the show focused solely only on the Dimpled Don, Carson, and Jasam.

  9. Soaphound says:

    So does that mean Billy Miller & Steve Burton’s characters are twins? If so, how does Franco figure in at all? Triplets? Well, I’m grateful Billy is staying put, but still confused as to why we’re still bringing in new characters. Yes, Jessica Tuck is a great actress (I still remember her wonderful work as Jillian on JUDGING AMY) but so was Rebecca Budig.

    Reply

    Celia replied

    That’s what I saif, Soaphound. Triplets?
    Billy Miller looks soooo much younger than both SB and RH. I do not like huge gaps in age like thst….especially when people look their age.
    Maybe I was right, Franco is the twin. I don’t like Betsy either. Perhaps she, Susan and Heather embodied a witches’ coven? Who was the mastermind? I smell Helena.

    Jimh replied

    Betsy, Heather and Susan-the Sanderson sisters-must be a little Hocus Pocus there-lol

    Shay replied

    Hey, CeeCee….I agree with Steve on the plastic surgery angle accounting for BM’s more youthful appearance…in this case, that excuse works for the visual disparity in aging. At least these two guys share certain general physical traits that I don’t at all see when compared with RoHo’s Franco…He is still the odd man out as far as I’m concerned….forever condemned to his sole role as the pariah-produced son of Heather and Scotty. I must say that sordid status does suit him…why mess with the meme now???? LOL. As for Helena, one can always imagine her fine-boned fingers in any ill-intended scheme….that’s the beauty of her character….nothing is too outlandish or out of bounds for consideration where her malicious meddling is suspected.

    Celia replied

    @Shay.
    Hi, Shay,
    Yes, the ‘plastic’ surgery; otherwise known as ‘reconstructive surgery’ would explain the ‘youthful’ appearance. ….did not think of that. Yet, I can be pretty stubborn, LOL. I am reminded of that negative quality, regularly. I sort of stick to my guns. Therefore, I am still not convinced Franco and Jason 1 are not, indeed, the twins. Just as Kiki is Nina’s. Yeah, I know….that ship has sailed. But, since when have stories/history, in soapland, not changed course? LOL.
    ….not resembling each other means not-so-much, in soaps.
    I don’t know if you are familiar with some of DOOL’s history. That is, Sami had twins, yes, but each twin had a different father. This phenomenon is not so extraordinarily rare when a woman has multiple sexual partners at the same time. “Heteropaternal Superfecundation”… as per my husband; paternal and fecund are key words here.
    So, just as the “Toxoplasmosis” diagnosis, TPTB got that right.
    Actually, fans scoffed and scorned when DOOL presented this storyline. Even at that time ( 2007-DOOL was the College favorite soap, LOL), my husband ( still in medical school), told me that. I, among others laughed at the ‘notion’.
    The fact that Franco is “the odd man out”, makes it that more soapy and compelling. I know I am most likely wrong….but, I never follow the ‘norm’—I am a skeptic by nature. I was always one to look for the needle in the haystack…..drove my teachers and parents crazy. LOL.
    You may have read one of my posts where I questioned Scotty’s paternity–he was and still, acting weird whenever Franco brings up the twin factor. Betsy did give an explanation. Is Franco really convinced? Or, did he simply appease that need to know the truth?
    Well, I’m not convinced. What was Susan like? Did she sleep around? Did Heather? Hey, one never knows in soaps. It could have been Heather who gave birth to Jason1 and Franco.
    Yes, Helena. I have had confirmation by Satan that she is in Hell……which does not mean she is not the mastermind. HaHaHa and Ha!!

    Rebecca1 replied

    Hi Soaphound!

    They addressed that today; said Betsy took in “Drew” the twin and raised him with Franco unitl he “died” which we know is a lie since he’s either Jake or Jason. (I personally think Jake…the current Jason…is Drew.) So, if some part of the story is true and Franco is not part of the Q equation…he was raised with Drew…until Drew disappeared.

    By the way, when Betsy claimed the twin, Drew, died, she said he was three. The boy in the picture with Franco looked about six to me.

    Reply

    Steve replied

    Franco is a distant cousin to both. They’ll ignore the age difference, but could explain it with the cutting-edge plastic surgery BM’s character got after the car accident. I guess that doctor left GH, since Ava has to go to Russia to find an appropriate surgeon.

    It is uneventful.. boring.. and masked man stupid..

    –If, they wanted to thrill us then Steve should have been brought in with BANG not a Whimper ..–

    Already, this story is a fail..
    it is dragged out and honestly I have lost interest waiting for something to happen..

    It was a horribly dull entrance … the entrance is bad bad bad YAWN !
    If this is preview of the pace of the upcoming 9 months, it is dead in the water..

    Why , why! can’t these writers write exciting drama, why..??

    Imagin;
    this story being written by Guza or any writer of the 90′s..

    I sure hope this 2 Jason s/l does not go on forever. a lot of GH fans are afraid that other cast members will be relegated to small snippets of airtime so as to facilitate the unraveling of the Jasoning. So many vets now get little s/l and there is a great imbalance of episode count and this s/l will not improve the disparity that fans are seeing.

    Now THIS is rich!! LM butt off.

    So Patient 6 is just sitting around in his wheelchair until he gets a hold of a pen and then … watch out he can KILL someone. But I guess he isn’t that good of an assassin because he couldn’t do anything with the DRAWSTRING on his hoodie?! He couldn’t do some Filipino Kali or some other martial arts move until he got his magical pen. What is he, Dumbo?

    HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Terrible writing!!

    Tracy Runco replied

    No as they said he has been drugged most of the time. WIth freaky horse tranquilizers. The one and only way to keep the real Jason Morgan from breaking necks. They have kept him drugged and isolated until recent. Trust, the writing as been bad for years. so far they have this right.

    Chrystie_Delancey replied

    But by getting the magic pen in his hand he can now kill people whereas he could not with his drawstring? No disrespect, but I am not buying that.

    Rebecca1 replied

    A pen can indeed be a weapon. If you’re fast and furious, you can gouge out eyes, stab someone in the neck, etc.

    I had thought that he wasn’t really receiving the medication..that one of the nurses was pretending to give it to him…which is why he was not down for the count most of the time…until Dr. Klein had the two male nurses inject him.

    Celia replied

    Still laughing, Chrystie.
    Did you see how the camera zeroed in on the pen? As if it were the most powerful weapon. Worst scene ever!! C’mon…
    And, since when is Ava a scared bunny.? She gave the fake doc the note? Why would she do that?
    Could she have done it on purpose, in the hopes the doc would call the number?
    If that’s the case, it certainly rang Sonny’s “alert” bell. …how droll.

    Reply

    Chrystie_Delancey replied

    Me too, Celia!!! Ha! Ha!

    Some great assassin he is. Ha! Ha! Yeah, Ava aint scared of ___t.

    And what is the big deal about someone giving someone a pen? Sheesh! Were there “please do not give the patients pens” warnings on the wall or something.

    Yeah, to those of you who say I am not getting it that the pen is a weapon, I am saying the writers did not do their due diligence. So I am going to spell it out for you:

    If he was some great assassin, then he would have been able to use ANYTHING around him to harm an orderly, etc. Yes. I get he was drugged, but it was so funny how once he got that magical pen in his hands he came to. If he was a real assassin, then the writers would have seen that he could have used his drawstring on his hoodie to choke someone.

    C’mon, people! Have you not watching any of the Jason Bourne movies or ANY action movies. If you are that good then anything is a weapon. He could have grabbed Ava and thrown her against someone.

    Jimh replied

    If he is suppose to be a dangerous person-and drugged or not-they are very lax in keeping people from having easy access to his room…and i dont hear much Russian accents for them being in Russia!!!

    Celia replied

    @Jimh.
    Hey Jimmy,
    Right???? Ava was told, in no uncertain terms, to stop meddling and stay away from MrMask, and others, I assume. Where are the guards?
    Dr. Bronsky ( sp) did have a Russian accent….I guess he soon lost it…no need for it anymore. LOL.
    This is a complete farce.
    Then, Sonny argues with Griffin about how Ava was responsible for his son’s death. He is so high up on that celestial pedestal that he can’t grasp the concept that he took another parent’s son away from her. Why is his action acceptable? I can’t even look at this guy….he says it with conviction and a straight face.
    I guess Monica’s rightful rage went right over Sonny’s head. He makes the hairs on my nape stand on end.

    Rebecca1 replied

    “He could have been able to use ANYTHING around him to harm an orderly…” He couldn’t reach anything around him. He had just gotten his uncuffed, sitting privileges and it seemed like he was only beginning to be able to use his hands. He kept opening and closing his fists slowly as if he hadn’t been able to move them in a while.

    He wasn’t planning on using the pen as a weapon; he was just writing Sonny’s number for Ava. It was only after the Dr. shouted that the pen was a weapon and they lunged for him that he then used it. Natural sequence of events…

    Shay replied

    @CeeCee….Sonny isn’t just on his “celestial pedestal,” as you so beautifully put it….he’s in his own freaking world where he honestly believes he can do no wrong, but pity the poor fool who does him or his any sort of harm! Such a rarified view of life is so departed from reality that it truly beggars belief…is he really THAT deluded or have the meds just been messing with his mind for so long that he has no genuine concept of what’s good and what’s evil at this late date??? And to wit, how much more of this utter self-worshiping lunacy must we endure as GH viewers before this deservedly-villified character (at least here at MFSoaps….) becomes an absolute parody unto himself??? Just when one thinks he has reached the supreme height of the predictable and ridiculous, he surpasses himself in all his inane incredulity, vainglorious posturing and hypocritical pontificating! If this weren’t so galling and appalling , it would actually be downright comical!!! Note to GH writers: Enough already with the “St. Sonny” as hero meme….we’ve had it up to here with him and we ain’t buying it…..period!

    rose replied

    The “magic pen” seemed familiar. Then I remembered the scene from “Bourne Identity” (one of my fav movies) where another Jason (Matt Damon), used a pen as a weapon. Come to think of it, there is a physical similarity between Steve and Matt. even in their fight scenes.

    Also would have thought Ava would recognize Sonny’s number since she’s had to call it enough because of Avery.

    That is not what a vog mask is for.

    Celia replied

    Oh, my gosh…you’re too funny, Chrystie…”please do not give patients pens”, warnings…..hilarious.
    As you said, he could have used so many things as weapons around him, to his advantage.
    I am beginning to think that those injections affect MrMask in the opposite way. They give him immeasurable strength, not take it away……A real live HULK.
    Is Valentin Bronsky’s boss or is it Helena? ….or Nikolas? Or all three?
    As Shay said, Russia is “home base” for this diabolical family.

    Christie…I wasn’t aware of vog masks. I know, I know, where was I hiding. Hunted them up and saw they can even be custom “decorated” for those that need them. I figure they thought Patient 6 was safer if he couldn’t bite, or even talk too much. But why left him sit in a common area anyone could enter???

    Who told you Jason was an “Assasin” ? He is more like a Soldier trained in Guns and self defense. Nobody who knows Jason would call him an Assasin, He can be a stealth and stone cold killer when required.. But I think you have a misguided opinion of Jason Morgan.

    The “real” Jason is in Russia. He’s obviously been held captive for a while. That’s why he wrote down Sonny’s number.

    Jake/Drew is the twin who was switched and then brainwashed by Helena. He’s the more “mellow” twin; the twin that wants to settle down with Sam and not be involved in Sonny’s business anymore. The one that Sam, Carly and Sonny find “different” since he returned. The one that Elizabeth didn’t realize was Jason because he WAS different.

    As I mentioned above in reply to someone, I think it should be an interesting conflict for Sam as she now loves both men, and both are the father to her boys. I’d like to see her stick with “Drew.” He’s got more heart, emotion and is willing to let go of “the business.” His boys love him.

    Could go either way, obviously, but I think they’re doing a good job with the story. Though, yes, they did to the two Todds on OLTL, it’s okay by me. It’s a soap and the stories just get recycled. Different day, different actor, different soap. I’m not expecting Dostoyevsky. Or Shakespeare. LOL…not Tarantino. It’s good soapy fun.

    And, contrary to many that have been vocal here, I love Sam. I think she’s been “whiny” because, well, what else would she be considering the stories she’s had recently? Other times…even when she’s happy? She’s subtle. She’s expressive but not too animated. Not sure if it’s Kelly’s acting or what the character calls for but I like her cool, calm demeanor.

    My one complaint? They are interspersing too many stories when they should be focusing on this one. Placing the Shriner’s story in on the same day that they’re telling the tale of the two Jason’s is ridiculous and poor storytelling. In order to get the viewer involved they need to stick with it without breaking the chain by throwing in an unrelated aside. Really distracting.

    Actually, all things evil, yet intricately woven give me cause to determine the loom of devastation is manipulated by her.
    The Joseph Stalin Memorial Clinic —that’s rich!!!!! But, Satan, do you know who her puppet on earth is? Are there more than one? She, with her powerful “Chi” , and evil wand in hand, is directing all things malignant. Can you not abort her actions? Talk to me. I’m your friend.

    Mo, there is no contraction for “there are”. “They’re” is the contraction of “they are”. I am not sure I understand what you are saying, as “there are”, and “they’re” express different meanings; completely!! One is an adverb ( there), the other a pronoun ( they)…..as is “their”.
    One cannot say there’re–non-existent. Never seen. Never was; never will be.

    Sonny is Jason’s best friend. He has every business being in this story. It’s Frodd “Baldwin” who doesn’t belong anywhere near it. Or anywhere near Jason’s kid for that matter.

    That’s the point, Satan. No matter which way the story goes; Sonny is front and center.
    Yes, it does follow the logical patter….Sonny is Jason’s best friend. My point and everyone else’s ( if I may take the liberty) is exactly that….we are sick of Sonny….and I am relatively new. GH seems to revolve arount this irritating man, when there are so many other, more interesting stories to be had.
    Then, in walks Bobbie, and her ” Virgin Mary” attitude. I can’t bear looking at her!! She condemns Nelle ( whose mystery is not one iota interesting to me). Yet, upholds Sonny in the highest regard? They are one and all , people “of the gutter”.
    To add salt to the wound…I find Benard “less than”, as an actor. Stumbling through his lines is getting worse….that idiotic fixed look is not intimidating; nor does it instill fear.
    If it is meant to freeze people where they stand, the icy stare fails miserably. How did this actor get into such an exalted position?
    My opinion only.

    There is only one fan on the GH site who loves Morgan, dmr. We all know who that is….no matter the name.

    Morgan will always be in their hearts and on their minds. That’s the way it is when one loses a child.
    It does the soul good to talk about one’s deceased child sometimes….and with the right people, always, but privately.
    The constant wailing on soaps gets old….especially if some of us did not like the character. Not real-life, people).
    Laura lost a child….we do not hear her go on and on ( when on stage), only peripherally, when the time calls for it.
    But, because he is Sonny, and she is Carly ( love LW), Angel Morgan is above all others, as his parents are. Never mind, Laura, Monica or Felicia etc.

    Hey, Shay,
    HaHa, I got it, albeit I did not see Jason 1 and Sam together much, I do know about the reference to the “Noodle Buddha”…. very clever of you, and, and, and, I am very proud of myself.
    Well, considering I do not know the intimacy between these two….I got it.
    Anyhoo….I think it is the real Jason only because of what he said….”I want to get back to my family”. He must mean Sam and Danny, no?
    Furthermore, the trusted ship’s Captain is not so trustworthy is he? I suspect he is in on whatever that imbecillic makeshift clinic full of crazies is all about.
    Seriously, I am so confused. Sigh……what, whom and where is the connection?
    Was the Byzantine priest part of it, as well?
    Will Jason, Ava and Griffin eventually catch up with each other and travel ( mayhap on the run??) together?

    Shay replied

    Hah, good girl! Oh yeah, the “NB” was yuuuuge in Jason and Sam’s life in Port Chuck. It was always their “go-to” locale for takeout and they actually were married in an impromptu ceremony in the restaurant’s courtyard…those little porcelain Chinese figurines that played a part in “Jake’s” recovered memories were a gift from the owners of the eatery as a symbol of the couple’s love, so this place was much more than simply a source of sustenance for them…it was also laden with much significance and symbolism of their time together. As for “6″s” quest to return to his family, I think we are supposed to assume he means Sam and Danny, but isn’t there buzz about “Drew’s” wife and child turning up soon? Thought I read something about that scenario somewhere in passing, so that mention could be another of GH’s famous red herrings…By the way, kudos on your most aptly-put description of the “imbecilic makeshift clinic full of crazies!” It’s spot-on, as is the notion of the “byzantine.” Quite appropriate choice not only for the so-called priest’s religious persuasion but this entire dramatic Russian/Cassadine tableau, as well, eh? In terms of “6″ running into Ava and Griffin on the road to Port Charles? It’s a reasonable possibility, although Burton’s “Stonecold” was usually by nature a “lone wolf” when it came to his particular missions…that’s just how he rolled, but of course, it was not unheard of for Sam, Carly, and naturally, Sonny, to barge in on his operations, for better or worse!

    Yeah, right, dmr!! It’s one of those “Huh, duh” moments.
    Was Ava really sent to this facility for reconstructive surgery? This place is a front….a facade for something. Do TPTB even know???? Are they making up the plot as they go along? Obviously they do have a skeleton of a story….bits and pieces here and there. The end result may or may not be palatable. I really do not mind Burton….I started warming up to him by the end of his tenure on Y&R. And, I have yet to witness the camaraderie between his Jason and Sonny….because whatever “love”/friendship these two had, is desperately lacking between Sonny and Billy’s Jason.

    The point of this fictitious “clinic”, in my humble opinion, has always been for Ava and MrMask to meet.
    I think this is why many of us thought it would be Nik. For him to be Jason 1 makes no sense at this juncture. So, why Ava?
    So what is the point….is Ava used to herald the second coming of “he who makes Sonny’s heart go thump-thump”? It would have been an “ah-ha” moment for MrMask to emerge as Nik.
    Nonethesless, Nik may still be within that fortress.
    When Sonny and Jason 1 finally come together, this time around, the scene should be shown in slow-mo. Ha!!

Patrick Drake was no fool….he was a highly skilled surgeon with an unimpeachable intellect…I would find it more than disingenuous to suggest that he could be so easily deceived by “doctored” material of both the human and documented variety. But I certainly won’t be surprised if this fact is ignored, glossed over or simply explained away by that same old excuse of “Blame Helena!” This omnipresent she-devil’s influence is held responsible for more ills than that of a certain ex-president who was seemingly always at fault for something!

    As you obviously gathered, CeeCee, I was solely referring to the character of Patrick, not the actor who portrayed him. Drake Jr. was considered a second-generation hotshot brain surgeon who was a chip off the old Noah….the best of the best and quite brilliant, in fact. I simply cannot fathom him being so easily conned by Helena’s shenanigans, no matter how cleverly-implemented. However, I can see your point about JT’s “Billy”…seems that his role as a recast has not been greatly received….Mr. Miller’s shadow apparently still looms large by comparison despite his now long-absence from his popular interpretation of that character. Too bad for both Thompson and GH fans that Patrick was not better utilized and retained…he may have ended up being a “jack-of-all-trades” m.d. but at least he had legacy links and a real backstory, which is more than one can say for the rotating cast of temporary docs being paraded through the hospital corridors these days!

    Su oooo, I think that is true. I believe Franco is a Quartermaine too. Every piece of the puzzle will fall into place.

    I am happy to see Steve Burton back. We need more Quartermaines to fill that empty house. Olivia does not quite do the family justice.

    Yesssss, Francesca….that’s three of us who think Franco is the other twin. Anyone else?

    @Francesca and CeeCee….Well, ladies, I’m still prone to favoring the “Two Jasons” as twins scenario, but there is one huge hole in the theory that Steve Burton is the “original recipe” Stonecold that I don’t see can be ignored and explained away. Remember when Patrick finally confirmed “Jake” was really Jason as he compared his current MRI results to the real Q’s old patient records? They showed identical brain injuries and surgical procedures to correct highly-unique physical conditions. So, how was this possible if Jake were not the genuine Quartermaine who actually sustained those horrible, life-changing anatomical alterations? Sure, Helena could have done what she does best and tampered with the GH files, but are we supposed to truly buy into the notion that she had someone convincingly replicate Dr. Drake’s handiwork on Jake’s brain in order to pass this surgeon’s muster as his own previous handiwork when he treated Stonecold’s injuries? That’s seriously pushing the envelope on the concept of credulity, no matter how fantastical the Cassadines’ past escapades have been.

    The show has invested too much time establishing the bond between Scott and Franco. The Franco is a Q fell flat when they tried it. With the dwindling ranks of Q’s, there would be no payoff making him a Q. Franco, being Scott and Heather’s keep those two legacy characters involved.

    Drew (assuming that’s Billy Miller) has established a bond with Monica and Michael, so it makes sense for him to be Q.

    Well, it appears the “real” Jason is Patient 6 but who knows. Ava is so stupid to defy the people who are suppose to “fix” her. I hope her payment is that they make her have scares for life!

    Ava is not stupid. With all due respect, Ava’s time of reckoning hath cometh… she has paid enough.
    Ergo the courage to help MrMask. Her good side has finally unmasked itself, today…pardon the pun……her soul is in place….unlike Sonny’s, who still thirsts for blood. Spawn of Dracula, that he is.

    I hear ya but Ava has yet to pay her dues and Sonny…really? Ava may get rescued from the defrocked priest but Ava has two bodies to pay for and I do not believe Sonny killed anyone in cold blood.

    Celia replied

    @Shonuff.
    Oh, I agree…I have said so somewhere here or on another site, Ava has not paid for her sins. ….trying to atone. However this was not my point.
    My point is that Ava does not have evil on her mind, right now….of course, that may change. Sonny is a hypocrite. We could argue this until two Sundays come together….Sonny slithers on his belly. That is my concept of him. My opinion.
    As far as the defrocked priest? That’s another fallacy…a story that, as a R Catholic, is yet to sit well we me. Before entering the priesthood, a would-be-priest takes a vow of celibacy. I have said this before. I may not agree with it…….the Church is trying to ‘remedy’ that, but until then, it is what it is. So, I sort of laugh it off whenever Griffin gives the idea that he could go back to the Church if he so chose. NOT !!
    Suddenly, TPTB have changed Canon Law to fit their story.
    In the real world, a priest may take time off ( I believe three years), but unless the Church has been revolutionized, a priest cannot have sexual relationships. He is excommunicated by the Vatican.
    Sonny did not kill anyone in cold blood? That’s what I saw when he killed AJ. Sonny is a souless criminal in my book. I do not understand how the “bosses” expect the viewer to forget all he has done. Plus, he calls his wife a whore and then all is forgotten? Degrading women this way is archaic and offensive. I could not last half a second with a macho-man like him. Disrespecting and belittling a woman is supposedly such a bitter notion to these ‘story-tellers’, yet they ‘dip’ women in muck on a daily basis. Where is the balance?
    We must have seen two separate shows…”sure enough”!! To each his/her own.

    Shay replied

    Perhaps Ava may not have evil on her mind at the moment, CeeCee, but that is subject to change at any given time. Despite her latest current “humbling” with her horribly flame-scarred face, this self-centered woman’s motives and modus operandi can turn on a dime, as we have so often witnessed in the past. I have absolutely no doubt she will be just as lethal and lawless once her visage has been restored to its former state, for that is her true default setting. So, no, I do not forgive this woman her former trespasses…especially those that include the taking of another’s life. (Anymore than I can overlook Sonny’s countless gross moral infractions or Nina’s utterly nauseating ends to which she went to covet Ava’s unborn child….there are certain sins which simply can be neither undone nor erased from one’s mind!) The very idea that Ava is now weeping on the shoulders of a defrocked priest and that he would even consider her as a prospective lover is a bridge too far for me. Yes, he once before broke his vows to God with a woman he thought he loved, but that isn’t the same as doing the horizontal mambo with a murderous she-devil, church or no church standing in his way. That he would dare toy with the notion of being involved with such a cold-blooded, heinous creature (no matter her presently-challenged physical state which obviously is evoking his sympathy…) is what should be giving him prayerful pause, not his religious delusions that he could ever return to his priestly past.

    Shay replied

    Exactly right, Shonuff!!! There is no way to wash the blood from Ava’s hands, whatever penance and good deeds she now implements to try and cleanse her sordid past! And entering into an unholy relationship with Griffin’s fallen priest doesn’t count much for her so-called absolution either…this is a wicked woman who fornicated upon the grave of one of her victims along with the actual triggerman. That is an image that shall never be eradicated from the viewers’ collective memory.

    Lol…irony bites, Shay. If Griffin ( love Matt) is attracted to calamitous Ava ( she’s a bad girl…I love Maura West….best actress in mine eyes) how will he explain that to God during one of his hypocritical talks with Him, as he kneels at the altar?
    I am so tired of listening to his ‘despair’ ; his confusion of choosing between the Church and living life as a man; a doctor. He has no choice….I don’t care what the script says!!
    He sinned with Claudette—what’s to stop him with Ava? It’s not as if he could ever go back to being an honest-to-goodness, bonafide priest again…he can’t even say Mass.
    He is too weak to be a priest…he succumbed to the pleasures of the flesh, just as Adam did, in the Garden of Eden ( or as Iron Butterfly said: “In A Gadda Da Vida”), which brought doom upon us all. LOL. ….words to live by, as per Sister Mary Margaret. LOL.

    I’m betting they are both Jason. Jason Q is Billy Miller. He was too damaged after the AJ accident and someone (Heather, Helena?) replaced Jason Q. With Stone Cold Jason Morgan (Drew). Robin actually saved Jason Q. unknowingly and that’s who has the new face. Now Jason Morgan is in Russia and Jason Q is with Sam. This explains why he is more family oriented (Jason Q.). It would also give many long time fans the emotional pay off of Monica getting her loving good son back AND Jason Morgan as is. Also, his dead personality would easily be explained by him terrible upbringing with Betsy and Franco.

    I think Helena switched them somehow, for she was so vanguard with it came to new medical procedures. Remember when they scanned Billy Miller’s brain he had that same injury that the ‘real Jason” had. Hell I will be glad when Scotty gets his due cause he participated in the baby theft thing.

    I am an older watcher and am referring to the two Jason’s as thing one and thing two I actually thought that the masked patient would turn out to be Nicholas probably a better story line than regurgitating the Jason Franco Betsy heather drew stuff again does anyone ever reallly go away in port Charles I prefer billy to Steve as Jason more of a family man type it actually gives me a headache to scroll through all the ancient history and I am a hex major yikes I will watch because I am retired and am really hooked

    A bit crazy.
    If old Jason is still he than how did new Jason (Billy) get old Jasons memory?
    Please???
    Like Billy as Jason now. Good chemristy between he and Sam.

    Celia replied

    Well, Lynda z, one could argue that Helena “put” those memories in his head….brainwahing. LOL.
    Nothing is making sense, right? We try to think logically.
    Glad you see the chemistry between him and Sam….I haven’t gotten there yet. I liked Billy with Rebecca the best, as Jake.
    In my opinion, this Jason and Sam cancel each other out. I have to raise the volume whenever they have one of their nonsensical conversations. I still can’t make out what they’re saying….not fully.
    I do not know how Sam and Stone-cold interacted. But, I will soon find out.
    Nonetheless, even with all my naysaying, I do look forward to the development of this story….we may all be pleasantly surprised.

    Helena was a master hiring medical personnel that had massive research and medical skills.
