Regan Reax: Jake's Hit And Run, Day Two



What another spectacular day for these actors. Once again, Steve Burton (Jason) and Jonathan Jackson (Lucky) led the charge. I wanted to desperately reach through my television screen and hand Lucky a tissue. I loved the scene with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and her brother Steven (Scott Reeves), where she thanked him for bargaining with God. Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Robin (Kimberly McCullough) explaining to Liz and Lucky what occurred during surgery and Patrick asking about organ donation through his tears for his friends was so REAL and RAW.

I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about Jason being the one to tell Lucky about Jake not making it through the surgery. I must say, I actually liked it. Lucky telling Elizabeth broke my heart, but I would have preferred for Jason to be the one to tell her. I still can’t overlook that all of this has happened, yet Elizabeth and Jason have yet to share a scene together. It seems a little ridiculous to me and it has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with my Liason love. I will readily admit when any of my rants have to do with my Liason love.
 


I honestly thought I would hate Josslyn’s cancer story throughout all this. Of course I felt like most; do we really need two children in jeopardy at the same time? It’s so depressing, but the more it progresses and the two stories gel together, I’m on board. LORD help me! As much as I HATE Jake dying, as much as I am not a fan of the recycling of BJ’s Heart story, it’s day two and Guza hasn’t lost me, yet. It may have to do with that little snippet of Jason and Carly (Laura Wright) at the end of the episode.

I love Jason and Carly’s friendship. I love it even more when Carly isn’t a screaming, selfish banshee. It was great that she knew exactly where to find Jason, that she didn’t just start out with telling Jason what she needed from him. I felt that Carly wanted just this one time to be there for Jason with no strings attached; to be his rock this time. Laura Wright literally broke my heart.

Of course this is me, so I have a couple gripes. Hey, criticism only makes us better. I am not a fan of Tracy’s decision to leave Edward in the dark. There once again is story potential just taken away. All of these people now know or got their suspicions confirmed and secrets are still being kept? From Edward? Where is Monica? She’s working at the hospital. I know she is because I heard her being paged. We can’t get a scene where she walks up to decent size gathering of concerned family and friends and where she asks what is going on? Monica can’t happen to be there when her distraught son walks up? My other gripe is directed towards Julie Marie Berman (Lulu Spencer). I did not feel one ounce of emotion coming from her. I get Lulu is not Elizabeth’s number one fan, but her brother just lost a child he has been raising as his own and Lulu’s response seemed flat at best. I was also mildly annoyed with Siobhan’s presence. For some reason, she felt like an outsider, taking up the spot of a character that would impact the scene more.

It looks like we should know by weeks end who ran little Jake Morgan down, leaving him for dead. Will that story be worth losing Jake? I find myself liking what I see so far, but I still can’t shake the feeling that when it’s all said and done, as good as it’s seeming to be, the void left will be far worse the high we’re getting right now.

Nice article!

I too, found nothing wrong with Carly approaching Jason. She is desperate. She knew where to go to find him because that is "where he goes" at the hospital.

Luke was very emotional. (for Luke) He was making sense today. Not taking it as an admission for running Jake over.

Patrick is taking this bad professionally, but more importantly personal.

I was never a fan of Lucky or Liz. (don't shoot me) however, watching these two, together there is no doubt in my mind they are best friends and should be together in every possible way. Put Siohban on the next Greyhound. KUDOS to the 3 parents with the acting.
Jason visiblly shaking in shock, alone, broke me.

Time to call Sonny home from his vacation. Will Sonny care enough to give up his time for Jason? Sometimes I think Sonny only cares about Sonny and his kids.

For me, YES the acting is awesome, however, the fact that Laura hasn't been called, Liz's father, Audrey, Monica, Bobbie, Edward is a down right shame. It is (for me) taking from this story.

I watched BJ's story. That story was monumental for GH. Didn't Mac go looking for Frisco to bring him to Maxie??
So much more beautiful scenes could be with Jason & his mother. She would not only learn of her grandson, she would mourn him with her son. Monica & Jason's scene's were always my favorite.

No parent should endure what happened today. There should be a law against parents having to bury their children.

Call Laura, at least SOME ONE call the grandmother who just lost her grandchild. Sheesh!

So what are we to infer from Jake matching Joss, that they are cousins after all? Did Liz have all those kids dna checked? Maybe they really are all Lucky's? That is the spoiler, right, that Jake matches Joss?

I was annoyed that Carly just blurted out to Jason that Jake could save Josslyn before they even had him tested. I mean WE know they are going to be a match but she doesn't know it and it's like a one in a million shot to be a match but she just blurted out that he can save her like she already had the tests done and it was concluded. I just found it rude that she didn't at least say he "may be able to save" her little girl.

And why the hell hasn't Liz called Jason? Steven ordered him away from Elizabeth (which he had no right to do) and Liz didn't even think to call Jason to tell him about his son?

Regan, I totally agree with you in regard to Lulu's character, she was useless.

I get that Luke is a loaner but why not be there for Lucky and for Liz at the hospital. He has known Liz she was 16 but he is more concerned that she is dragging Lucky back into her life.

I disagree with the Carly/Jason discussion. I think her main point was to tell Jason she needed Jakes Kidneys for Joss. It felt dirty to me that she showed up at just the right time (as the door was open)as Patrick was saying that Lucky and Liz should consider organ donation for Jakes organs. And she got that look in her eyes that said "those are mine". In my opinion anyway. I think there was way more potential for this and I think they could have at least waited another day before vying for Jakes kidneys. I was not feeling Laura Wright today.

I think it should have been Liz and Lucky going in to see Jake together or even Jason, Liz and Lucky. They missed the boat on that one.

I also think by now Elizabeth and Jason should have had a scene. I would have loved to have seen Jason be the one to tell Liz that they could not save Jake. Especially since the parallels are there with Jakes birth. What I thought was odd is that Liz and Lucky seemed surprised that Jake was on life support. Wouldn't they have been consulted with before he was put on life support? Plus didn't Lulu go tell Luke that Jake was on life support before even Lucky and Liz knew? Maybe I am wrong.

I have to say I thought Friday's episode was good but they are starting to lose me here.

I too am not looking forward to what lays ahead.

One more thing for me was having Sam in the galley with Jason. I think it should have been Liz. It would have been a scene that rocked.

Good article Regan!!

It's ridiculous that Jason and Liz have not had a scene together yet. They are his biological parents damn it. Liz would have called Jason or had someone else do it. They are writing it like he does not even cross her mind. That is preposterous. All her thoughts are on Jake now...so how could the man who made him with her not cross her mind? I get that they want to obliterate Liason, but come on now.

I also thought that Lulu fell flat. I thought that Sam fell flat as well. She should be more torn up with guilt and sadness because she actually wished him dead at one point. I'm not saying she is guilty of anything at this point, but it would be a normal human reaction to feel guilty about wishing someone dead when they all of a sudden die.

I love Luke's reaction thus far. I think they should tell Edward. He survived thinking that Brenda was dead, and he was close to her. He doesn't even really know Jake. Is the show saying that losing the idea of an heir is worse than losing someone you actually know, care about and love? Weird.

I hate this story with a passion, but RH and JJ are rocking it. SB finally had some moments for me in this episode. Up to now I have been annoyed and angry with his teary eyes. He would not give up the mob and other people's kids for Jake, but I'm supposed to feel bad for him now? I feel more anger and disappointment with Jason right now. Just can't help it. I think I am starting to hate this character because of the way he is being written.

"Jake Spencer." That is Jake's name on his birth certificate and the only one he knew.

I thought Carly was terrible for asking Jason for Jake's kidneys moments after he learned about the death of his son. That conversation could have happened later.

Also, I don't understand why Monica was left out. Jake was her grandson. She was denied a relationship with Michael and now one with Jake.

Reagan...JMB did a GREAT job and did as good in her scenes as everyone else considering she only had a few seconds in 2 scenes. JMB is and ALWAYS will be the best actress on the show and if she were given this s/l could do a better job acting it out then RH. I think it should have been Lulu NOT Siobon comforting Lucky when he went to see Jake.That would have been a even more powerful scene if JMB was in it with JJ.

It's ridiculous that Jason and Liz have not had a scene together yet. They are his biological parents damn it.
********************************************
WHY? Why is it ridiculous that the day she finds out that her baby was hit by a car she turns to Jakes father for comfort? He is the man who cared for Jake, took him places, did things with him, raised him as his son.
They were bonded. Of course Liz would turn to Lucky. Her best friend since she was a kid, her ex-husband, and in all honesty, watching them together yesterday he is her soul and visa versa.
I really hate to say this, but she laid with Jason and conceived that beautiful boy. That is it. Things didn't work out between her and Jason. Lucky was his father. And obviously by the way Liz 'clung' to Lucky, he is all she wanted yesterday. And needed.
Her and Jason will have a scene together. I just don't see where its a priority right now.
Right now she needs to bond and mourn with those who can share in the memories and the love of Jake. That isn't Jason.
Being a bio parent doesn't make you a father.
Jason no doubt loved that boy, but in reality, he didn't know him.
As BOTH him & Liz had agreed upon.

I never said it was wrong for her to turn to Lucky. I think you are correct when you say that Lucky is Jake's father and that he and Liz should turn to eachother for comfort and support. I just find fault with how it seems that Jason does not even cross Liz's mind. Lucky has raised Jake, but Liz is quite aware who Jake's bio dad is and that he (allegedly) loves him. To see a mom so focussed on her dying son and not think of the man who created him with her does not ring true. She would have called him or had someone else do it.

I also completely disagree with your interpretation of Liason, but what else is new?

Let's say you had the worst possible thing happen to you. Who would you turn to?? The person who feel connected to the most. In this case, Liz feels the most connection with Lucky. He is who she has chosen to comfort her. There is no romance between her & Jason. Nor her and Lucky. However, Lucky was Jakes father. And has been a friend & husband to Liz for longer than she ever had anything romantic with Jason.
Honestly, did Jason even cross Liz's mind yesterday? I doubt it.
They had a baby together, and I am sure down the road she may even scream and holler at Jason. But then again, I expect Liz to be mad with life for a long time. And who could blame her?
My point is, she loves and feels comfort with Lucky. For now, its all about what is best for Liz. And who she can find comfort with.
Today it may be Robin. Or Grams. People who are a part of her life.
That rules Jason out. Don't forget. She is still processing all that happened. She is RAW with emotion.

Your last snip about you disagreeing with me over my interpretation of Liason, but what else is new, was a dirty shot.
I am not in high school. I don't care who pairs with who.
All I do is voice my opinion on how I interpet something.
NO reason to bash me for that.

I was joking when I made the "snip" about disagreeing about Liason. Maybe I should have put a smiley face or winking face after it, but I was just teasing you about how different our views are about the couple. I was not bashing you in any way, shape or form.

And fine, let's say the worst thing in the world happened to me...my child has been hit by a car and is at death's door. I am a single mother and I have raised my kids with no help from their dad. We have not, in fact, seen him for years. My thoughts would immediately go to him because we created these kids together. It would be instinctual and natural to think about him. I know this because even when they have minor emergencies (broken arm for example) I automatically think about him and attempt to notify him.

You are missing my point completely. I am not saying that she would have thought of him because they love eachother...I am saying that it would be instinctual to think of the person who created the child with you when that child is sick or in danger. This takes nothing away from Liz's bond with Lucky, or Lucky's bond with Jake.

As for finding comfort frome people. Yes, Lucky can comfort her because they are raising Jake together, but I also believe that Jason would comfort her as well. They, in my opinion, have a deep bond and love eachother still. I don't understand why you are debating with me about Lucky comforting Liz when my comments were not about Lucky. They were about Jason and Liz sharing a scene...not all the scenes but just a few scenes.

I see your point when you explain it like that. lol

In the original post you were mad!! I couldn't understand why anyone would get mad over Liz turning to the people she loves first. She isn't in love with Jason anymore than he is with her.

She and Jason will have a scene together. They in time will need one another as a part of closure. If there is a thing called closure when you lose a child.
Just not sure when that will be.
Liz is going to be in a bad way for a long time.

As far as who I would turn to first, it wouldn't be the father who had no contact with his children. It would be the father who raised him.
And was capable of sharing memories with.
Thats just me.

If Jason was just a sperm donor then he should not have been there at all because i really could care less about his pain since he is not Jake's father anyway. I will 4ever hate that wretched Carly i have never had any love for her and i am sure by the next couple of weeks she will be back to her miserable self who hasn't learned a damn thing. I will give Guza the benefit of the doubt and wait and see it is just day one so they will probably share a scene 2gether if only for Jason to do Carly's bidding.

I agree with your post for the most part, Regan, but I still just can’t get on board with the Joss storyline and the quick pace and the way it has been written thus far. Despite the cancer possibly being true to life, the other writing isn’t there for me, for the most part. And I’m just going to have to continue disagreeing about Carly asking. I still think it should have been handled differently. I thought it would have been more poignant if Liz and Lucky eventually offered Jake’s organs after coming to grips with this tragedy, and even like Spooks suggested on the Observations thread (which was brilliant): Carly/Jax not knowing that it was Jake’s organ that saved Joss, if there was indeed a match (but we know there will be, so...). Having Carly tell Jason she’s sorry about Jake, then tell him about Joss, THEN talk about Jake's kidney was just too much for me in that moment.

If the roles were reversed, and Liz went asking for the donation immediately after Joss was declared brain dead, I see Carly giving in eventually but initially??? No. Her gut reaction would be ‘you’re not cutting into my daughter’. I don’t think it would have been much to ask to wait before diving in. And I’m sorry, but the last thing Liz should be asked about is giving her dead child’s organs away not minutes before they’ve even pulled the plug on him. There was no time in between to even breathe and comprehend what has actually happened, and accept that he’s gone. She is still clutching his clothes!

And if Carly WAS going to ask, if they HAD to have her ask for the donation, she should have approached Terrell first and only, and if she did, it should have been seen. Just didn’t agree with her asking Jason to ask Elizabeth, when Elizabeth is still clutching onto Jake’s clothes. And certainly didn’t agree with the listening at the door. As I said, I didn’t agree with the asking at all, but it should have been a Dr. involved in this. Terrell talking with Steve, Steven talking to his sister and Lucky, but not wanting Jason to go to her and ask about donating an organ at a time like this, when she still can't accept that Jake is gone. Again, poignancy would have been Liz eventually offering the organ after accepting the truth about her child.

I must respectfully disagree with this. I don’t think Lulu should have taken Siobhan’s place with Lucky in that scene. I think that Liz should have been there, as two parent’s still grieving for their child, holding one another once again, the same as Lucky held onto her in the waiting room, and attempting to cope with the unthinkable. It should have been reminicent of Luke and Laura going to see who they thought was Lucky in the morgue. And as many times as Lulu Spencer has continuously blasted Liz over Jake, and just about everything else Liz has done as of late, as if Lulu coming to town and scheming and lying in attempt to steal Dillion from Georgie and getting pregnant with his child was all just a bad dream, I don’t think she should have been in that room with Lucky, at all. She should have given her sympathies to her brother, yes, but being there as he went to see his child, no, I don’t think it was her place to be there. That should have been reserved for the mother of his child. JMHO, though, of course.

Just because Jason was not an active father in Jake's life, that doesn't mean that he didn't love that boy with all of his heart. Biology doesn't make you a parent, but love knows no bounds. Lucky might have been Jake's REAL father in every way that counts, but that shouldn't discount or invalidate Jason's feelings or grief in any way, shape or form.

Jason still loved Jake like a father should love a son!!!

I have to say that I find the past two days of GH to be the best in a very very very long time. Probably since Laura woke up! I love GH beyond belief! I am just at a loss right now with where they are going and why they keep killing off core characters.

IMO killing the Q's and only showing Tracy and Edward is dumb. AJ should have been the bulkin. Would have made way more sense to me! There would have been much more story for years had the TPTB wised up! Oh well another failure on their part!

I agree that Jason should be in scenes with his family the Quartermaine's! However everyone needs to realize this is a crisis that just happened. The first instinct is to be there and wait. Not to call a million people. Now maybe I can see it as Sam could be the one to call Monica or Edward. That would have been amazing. I do feel that Monica could have been working in the ER when Jake arrived and then seeing Jason there could have put two and two together that would have had them grief together. Then again Monica has lost so much does she really need to mourn the loss of another family member? Especially one she never knew.

The scenes were amazing from JJ and RH! I cried right there with JJ as he broke down and couldn't go in that room. I can only imagine. The scene where he and RH fell to the ground was intense. I feel JJ has truly made this story one to remember!

Carly and Jason at the end of the episode was a treat. That ending was one you would expect to see on a Friday and it is only Monday. Makes me wonder where this story is going. I did not like though how Carly found out. That was crazy and typical GH.

Now to the speculations I must share. I have and agree with the others it is crazy that they haven't seen Jake. The only people were those who had him in surgery. Apparently Liz saw him at the house when she called for the Ambulance. Hmm...how bad was his face affected from the accident? Makes me wonder. All they said was head trama. The fact that Lucky wouldn't go into the room, all be that was amazing stuff JJ played, makes me wonder even more. I am like some holding out hope that it was Brenda's and Jax's love child that died. I know even more stuff for Carly to stomach but in what a wonderful twist would this whole storyline be if it was one for Carly and Jax and one for Brenda that got her away from Sonny. How mad would Sonnny be to find out that Brenda had a child with Jax? I would live for that! Not to mention the fact that Carly would be all so pleased to find out that Jax was with Carly in Rome back in 2007. Hey maybe it could have happened as a result of Limo Sex. Then the real hunt could happen for Jake. Again in the biggest twist of all it wasn't the Balkin who switched out the kid it was AJ! The ultimate revenge as AJ would have taken Jake to raise as his own to hate Jason. I know fanfic but could you imagine if it happened? It would be fantastic!

Finally RIP Nicholas. You will be missed but ever since they killed off Emily and no dark Prince ever came you need to go!

Regan,

I actually commented yesterday that I felt that Julie was lacking in emotion. Hell, this is the girl who has won back to back Emmys for Best Younger Actress and who IS, in my opinion, the best actress under 30 right now in daytime television. She was not that close to Jake, but I expected more from her. Maybe she was simply trying to be understated with her performance, as to not detract from Jonathan, Rebecca and Steve's performances, but I was not really impressed. I choose to believe that her lack of emotion was an INTENTIONAL acting choice made by Julie, because I know she's WAY better than that.

Alstonboy..what up?? You know I am your #1 fan when it comes to your posts. I agree 98% of the time with you.

However this is the 2% I don't. I have no doubt Jason loved Jake. But love stems more than from genetics. Love stems from watching your child learn to walk the first time. Or to make the funniest faces you have ever seen. Or going to daycare and playing with the other children, as you watch thinking your child is the smartest.
Listening to what comes out of their mouth. Holding that child when they fall down and think they are bruised for life! Comforting them when they are sick.All those things add up to something stronger than genetics.

I am not a big fan of Lulu's since she got with Dante. I think people are a little hard on her today. Death is awkward. For everyone. Even the people that are on-lookers are dumb founded what to say or do.
And that is the classification I put Lulu in.
I think a little shocked was going thru her. At least Dante kept his mouth shut.

I don't think there will be a possible swicheroo between Jake and Brenda's child. But I could be wrong. I saw the picture of the child that will be utilized as Brenda's, and the child looks of Hispanic/Latin origin. I don't see a possible comparison of Jake.

Luck, Liz & Jason performance were great, but that is not the issue. The issue is why kill Jake at all, and then to cut all these corners; a brief mention that his is really Jason's son. Yet, Jason's mother and family are not show. We were cheated big time. I have been a loyal fan for over 30 years of GH attending all the events. I stayed with the show through killing Alan and Emily, but this is it for me. I unplug everything after this week and cancel my SOW, ABC Soaps subscriptions. I am going to miss Luke, but I am sure after this WRONG move the show is on borrowed time.. GUZA and the rest of the writers you just made a royal mess of this, and it is unforgivable. Prepare for a revolt and the biggest backlash ever seen by die hard, loyal GH fans.

Hey, hon!!!

It's okay to disagree every now and again. Being on the same page all the time can get old----not to mention boring!!!! Smile Smile Smile Smile

"Old" and "boring" are two adjectives that CERTAINLY don't describe me, and I am pretty sure they don't describe you either. Keep on being witty and making me smile, and we'll always be cool!!!!

Another great day on this show.

Loved the scenes with Jason and Lucky. Loved the scenes with Lucky and Liz. It reminded me so much of when Jason had to tell Sam her baby died. I mean the way you don't hear what is being said but you seem them moving their lips and then the aftermath, falling apart, screaming, falling down. No way am I comparing the two "deaths"

If you and your husband, ex-husband were raising two children together and sharing custody, would you take the time or even think about contacting the parent or parents that gave up that child and was not in the childs life except to see them once a year for 2 minutes? Or would you concentrate on hanging on to the man or woman that was there for every cut and scrap and bruise the child had? They will feel the loss more because they were with him every day and knew him, they will miss the little things
like his hugs and laughs and quirks and tucking him in and giving him baths. Lucky was the dad in every way that mattered. Add the colds, the flus the brothers fighting over what to eat or where to go or going to bed when told?

Would you really think of the man that impregnated you and you had him give up his rights to the child? Would you really think to call him? Would you really want HIM to tell you that your son is on life support and brain dead? WOULD YOU REALLY WANT THAT ??????????????????
Or is it just "love the characters"? Aren't the writers writing what really should happen in real cases and not fan wanked?????

Have to say that Sam NEVER EVER said she wanted Jake DEAD.............
Sam and LULU said that it would be better if Jake was "gone", Lulu said it to Spinelli and Sam said it to Amelia, this was BEFORE the kidnapping. Neither Lulu or Sam ever said they wished he was DEAD and if I missed it please show me the clip where they said "I WISH JAKE WAS DEAD"

Steven Webber( Weber) needs to go. What a bland boring person. Never any emotion from him during any scenes with anyone.

Carly should be the one begging Liz for Jakes kidneys. Patrick and Robin put it on the table about donor organs as the hospital usually has someone do that, ask the family, when people are brain dead but then Carly should beg. I would understand it more if it came from a family member, but then they (hospitals) usually keep donor donations under wraps and families don't know who saved their family member.

I love this story and I believe in organ donations and I have it on my drivers license to be an organ donor, if something horrible happens. I have one kidney so I would hope if I needed one someone somewhere could help save my life or I could save theirs. My personal beliefs I am NOT preaching to the choir here. Everyone belives in their own way and I stand behind thier beliefs. LOL Just stating how I feel.

I personally can't stand the character of Carly, and yesterday is a prime example of why. She had no business approaching Jason like she did, and asking for Jake's kidney. Very wrong, insensitive, and callous on her part. What she should have done is gone to Terrell, and asked him to please not shoot her baby up with that poison, until it was determined whether or not that Jake was going to be a donor....then asked him to determine capatiblity, with Patrick's help if necessary. She should have left it up to the doctors to approach Lucky and Liz, if Jake turned out to be capatible. When she went looking for Jason to comfort him...that is all she should have done....comforted him and been his bff. The nerve of her to ask Jason for the kidney, like it is even his decision in the first place. I get that she is trying to save her daughter's life, but she handled it all wrong as usual, because she is a self absorbed ego maniac.

Comparing this story to the original BJ/Maxie story line is like night and day. There is nothing poignant about this story. Frisco and Felicia did not beg Tony for the BJ's heart...It was his idea to give his neice BJ's heart, and Tony had to convince Bobbie that it was the right thing to do...Frisco and Felicia did not even know that the donor heart was BJ's until afterwards...THAT is what made it so special. This begging for a organ from a child that has been brain dead for 10 mins, from a woman that Carly has actively despised, and been vindictive to for the past 12 years, was WAY OUT of line. Elizabeth has not even seen Jake yet, so she hasn't even taken steps to accept what has happened to her child... and yet people are asking her to donate his organs. Disgusting.

Now I am not saying Liz should not give Josslyn, Jake's kidney...or course she should and she will...but for pete sakes give the woman a chance to grieve for her son before you start treating him like a "donor central" and chopping him up. Jake is more that just his organs...he was a beautiful little boy who died way before he should have.

I will never like the character of Carly, I can barely tolerate her most times.I do however love little Josslyn and Jax....and Liz will donate Jake's kidney it for them...I can't even imagine what Carly's reaction would have been if this story was reversed and it was Jake who needed Josslyn's organ...yes I can...she would have said NO...and had a major melt down that you even asked her to cut up her child.

And if they could bring Monica on long enough to say to Liz how Aiden looks like Lucky they could bring her on for this. OR they should have not let her do that scene but do thess scenes. Hell it was just a week or so ago. I think she still is around and could come in to work.

Hey, hon!!!
It's okay to disagree every now and again. Being on the same page all the time can get old----not to mention boring!!!! Smile Smile Smile Smile
"Old" and "boring" are two adjectives that CERTAINLY don't describe me, and I am pretty sure they don't describe you either. Keep on being witty and making me smile, and we'll always be cool!!!!
Love Love

See...there you go being AWESOME again....... Beer

As for everyone that keeps saying all Jason is to Liz is the biological father...he is far more than that. Jason and Elizabeth have a long and rich history going back 12 years. They have been in one another's life in many ways. Elizabeth has saved Jason's life a few times, as he has saved hers the same. As much as the Jasam fans want to pretend that nothing but one night existed between these two...there is alot more than that....Yes...friendship was the main component for them for many years...but they have also been in a relationshi,p and have told each other many times that they loved one another. They wanted a future together, and we all know why they were ripped apart...but the fact is...they did want to be together....so yes...Lucky is the father that Jake knows, and who has been actively raising him...but Jason is not just a sperm donor to Elizabeth....

SOOOOOOOOOOO the fact that the writers are not showing her thinking of him...calling him...and the writers not allowing her to share scenes with him up to this point IS RIDICULOUS....You saw how they included Jason, by having Lucky call him...They will do anything to keep distance between these two, because they don't want to fight the fans that want Jason and Elizabeth together...Liason does not fit with the story plans they want Jason in. They don't want him domesticated. I think they are foolish...they could have written a lot of interesting stories for Jason coping with a family and doing what he does. Jason has been involved with, and saved him in all the important events in Jake's life. Recently Elizabeth gave Jake to Jason to spend some time...because she realized that Jason should have that...So this does not play out true...sorry.

Jonathan Jackson, Steve Burton and Rebecca Herbst were just brilliant. They broke me down.

Amazing episode.

Marezi - Sam said around the 3:53 mark that she sometimes wished that Jake didn't exist, that he would just disappear.

If someone disappears and doesn't exist anymore they are dead.

And GHFan777 summed up perfectly why fans of Jasam don't understand what other fans are talking about when we say that it doesn't ring true that Liz wouldn't think of Jason. He was not a sperm donor or a one night stand. They were close friends forever, they love eachother and they were engaged (for about 30 seconds thanks to the mob). They didn't break up because they fell out of love. They broke up because of the danger (and I hated the danger danger crap). Their connection and bond were shown recently when Liz let Jason play with Jake at the hospital. If he was just a sperm donor she would not have thought to let them spend time together.

I think I agree with a little bit of almost everyone's posts! I thought day 2 was good, I cried my way thru 2 kleenex, but I just feel it was kind of rushed, at the same time.
I hate Carly...have for a long time...and the fact that she overheard the news about Jake being on life support and bringing it up to Jason 60 seconds after expressing her condolences was harsh! She should have gone thru the proper channels (the doctors) and had a little more compassion. But then again, I think she's a self-absorbed bitch, so that mught color my feelings Smile
I, too, thought Lulu was a little too stiff, and I love JMB. Not sure if it was soley the lack of interaction Lulu had or the way she played her couple of lines, but I was disappointed.
Let me chip in for that Greyhound ticket out of town for Siobhan...just seeing her there pissed me right off. So what if she's Lucky's brand new greencard wife...I did not want to see her comforting Lucky. I really hate that she's on contract now Sad
I do hope that before the s/l is over and they focus on whatever comes after this tragedy that we do get to see a Jason and Liz scene...I think they do deserve to mourn that beautiful child they created together, just for a moment or two, at least.
