General Hospital Spoilers: Jason Grieves



Here’s the Scoop!

Ok, so Steve Burton (Jason) did it yesterday. He has been bringing the heat all week, but WOW was he AMAZING. Will Luke being the one to have run down his son allow for this unbelievable talent to keep coming our way? We will see Jason go after Luke in true mob man fashion, but come on, it’s not like they’re going to kill off Luke Spencer. They reserve that for little kids. I know I’ve been enjoying this story, so allow me to explain. I’ve LOVED the acting and have been pleasantly surprised by the writing. I still loathe the fact that they killed Jake.
 


I want to know what you all think about this alcoholism story for Luke? Is this the way to go for Luke Spencer? While he’s had his troubles with his ticker and should lay off the booze for that reason alone, I’m of the mind that he’s just not Luke Spencer if he doesn't have scotch and cigar in hand. Is the alcoholic-runs-down-his-own-grandson story what fans want for Luke Spencer? They made him a rapist all those years ago, now a baby killer?

Certainly it’ll give Tony Geary and Jonathan Jackson some great material, however I’m still of the mindset that it’s the longer story of Jake and Jason where we would have been in store for some greatness, but alas.  SPOILERS have it the PCPD will find DNA on Luke’s car. Dante SHOULD be adding drunk driving to the charges against his girlfriend’s father. What will happen when Jason goes after Luke? RUMORS are saying that Jason wants to know what happened and that his inquiry turns to anger when he realizes Luke was most likely tipsy behind that wheel. Obviously, Luke doesn’t even remember hitting Jake. 

Is Jason going to kill Luke? Like I said, they’re not going to kill off Luke Spencer. What would typically be Jason’s go-to reaction changes with him realizing that Luke living with Jake’s death  is more punishment than the hit man can deliver.

Managing his grief… Jason needs to manage the grief he feels over the death of his son, so he throws himself into his work which of course means Carly and Sonny’s family. He’ll focus on protecting Joss and one RUMOR even suggests that Lucian’s safety will become a priority of Jason’s. Could it be because Jake and Lucian are close in age?

Is Lucian, Brenda’s son? Brenda believes it to be. Will Sonny wonder if this is true? Motherly instincts kicking in, is Brenda going to be so protective of Lucian that she’s not going to want him around the mob? Wouldn’t that mean the little boy couldn’t be around her hubby? Will Sonny suggest a DNA test?

Michael and his gun… he steals it from Jason’s penthouse! Maybe you shouldn’t be a father if kids can easily access your weapons. Michael feels the law is a failure, it’s failed him time and time again and now it’s failing Abby. Brandon is free after putting her in the hospital. Dante is concerned for his little bro and while the two are together, Brandon goes after Abby again. This time, Michael isn’t letting the cops handle it; he’s taking justice into his own hands and goes after the woman beater. This is when we’ll see Jason stop Michael from pulling the trigger. Does Johnny try to something right by Michael and take Brandon out? Is there more to the situation? When we see Anthony, it LOOKS like he’ll be on the other end of a phone call to his son.

Will Michael think it was Jason who knocked off Brandon? That’s what it LOOKS like and Jason will think Michael killed the abusive douche. Will these two be covering for each other? Have they learned NOTHING about covering up crimes!

CRAZY and RANDOM… The Haunted Star gets a trashing, courtesy of Luke. Lucky and Jason scene coming up where RUMORS have Lucky breaking down. Dr. Lee sighting! We MAY get to see Robin and Patrick in marriage counseling and listen up GH! We SHOULD see them in counseling! Will they find Brandon’s body outside the strip club? Despite all the fingers pointing in Luke’s direction, is it possible that Carly is the one who killed Jake? Personally, I think that would be the better story. Sam tells Josslyn she wants to have a baby, with Jason. Does Jason want the same? Carly wants Sam to give him a child, but will we see some real, raw storytelling about replacing your dead child?

    I no longer give a damn about Jason’s grief. GH has SBu’s next emmy reel so lets move on to the next story where its all about Jason’s vengence and Lucky’s pain. I think Elizabeth may still be wandering the halls of GH looking for her Grams so she can get some comfort.

    Thanks Regan. I have never been a Luke Spencer fan but to me he has knocked his scenes out of the park during this. I would like to see more of him in this story.

    All characters have been well acted in this story. Everyone seems involved with the who done it story. Both are great.

    As for the possible Jason and Lucky scene. I can only ask…REALLY GH?….it does not satisfy this fan. The thought has actually angered me and my anger is at GH’s attempt to make the relationship of Lucky and Jason emerge in their grief as more significant than either man’s with Elizabeth.

    I don’t understand why everyone seems to be so quick to discount Jason’s grief. Does he not have the right to mourn the loss of HIS child, even if he didn’t play an active part in that child’s life? Does that mean that just because you aren’t PERSONALLY involved in the life of a child, that you shouldn’t feel pain, remorse and sorrow when that child passes away too soon?? I don’t agree with that “logic.”

    Jason is certainly entitled to cry. Hell, I think it would be inhumane of him NOT to cry!!!!! Mobsters have feelings and emotions too, folks. I know that sounds silly that a man who kills other people might actually have the capability of deep emotion, but it’s true.

    And might I add, Steve Burton has been doing a kick ass job lately. He might not win an Emmy, but he has certainly earned a gold star on his report card from me. :) :)

    Yes, Jason is allowed to have emotions. But the idiots at GH are making this ENTIRE STORY about JASON. When the fact is…LUCKY AND ELIZABETH ARE JAKE’S PARENTS. This storyline should be about THEM.

    I agree! Steve Burton has done an excellant job. I’ve cried with him. Emmy please! And, the storyline seems just about right with Jason’s, Lucky’s and Elizabeth’s loss.

    But, GH—NO to Luke as the driver! Writing that storyline to get Lucky and Luke to an okay place again…..Won’t be believable!!! If this rumor is true———–RE-Write!!!!!

    It’s such a joke when Jason pulls his gun on people and threatens to kill them. How often has he actually followed through with his threats lately. He has become a joke in that respect.

    Dr. Lee sighting…..but nah, killing Jake has nothing to do with a Jasam baby.

    Question: how the hell far is the street from Liz’s house??? Did no one realize that they were in her neighborhood??? Or a neighborhood at all??? And if Luke doesn’t remember hitting Jake, does that also mean that he doesn’t remember driving down a residential street??? And I’ve never driven down a residential street that took you any and everywhere in town: hospital, courthouse… Italy.

    I’m sick of Michael’s foolishness. Shot in the head, coma, murder, prison time, horrific experience behind bars, and he has STILL not gotten it. It’s as if all the time we spent feeling bad for him after his time in prison was wasted because he has learned NOTHING from it. Knows better, goes against it. One apple, three trees. You decide.

    Thanks for the spoilers regan.

    @ alstonboy: I think ppl are having a problem with the fact that it seems to be ALL about JASON’s grief and not about the ppl that actually saw him everyday and hugged him & comforted him & you know, actually knew him. Jason keeps reflecting back to that one day, for what 20 minutes?, that he shared with Jake, b/c that’s all he has! I am sure his ACTUAL parents are thinking of the 4 years of memories that they have had with him, like where he likes to sit on the couch, his favorite drink or the funny way he eats his cereal– & don’t even get them started on what he does when he eats spaghetti, boy gets it all over himself!
    I don’t think anyone really has a problem with Jason being a grieving ‘father’, BUT it does seem to be too much & it kinda sucks when the story seems to really focus on JASON & how JASON feels & how JASON is dealing with Jake’s death & how JASON will handle what Luke possibly did & how JASON will react to life now that Jake is dead. Um, I am sorry, but I don’t give two shits about that. What I want to SEE ON MY DAMN SCREEN is how LIZ is dealing with things while living in the SAME house & raising 2 other sons, one of which will be constantly asking about his little brother & other of which is a baby that is hard enough to care for without dealing with a loss simultaneously. I want to know/SEE how freakin’ LUCKY! will deal with life & the knowledge that his ‘beloved for all of his childhood’ FATHER killed his son!!!!! THAT is the real story! I DON’T CARE that Jason wants to get revenge but then “decides” that guilt is enough for Luke, uhh, STFU Jason! LoL. To me, if anyone should be “deciding” what ‘punishment’ awaits Luke it would be Liz & Lucky! Not this deadbeat!
    Again, I am not saying that Jason doesn’t deserve to feel what he is feeling, I am just saying that his pain shouldn’t (& in my opinion DOESN’T) trump Liz & Lucky’s. Unfortunately, the writers of this terrible show don’t seem to know that. They remind me of Carly in that respect.

    I agree that StB is doing great for never showing this much emtion before BUT they are making it way too much about Jason I realize this was actually Becky’s exit story but they should be showing more of a reconnection between Lucky and Liz. RH & JJ really do vibe well off eachother I never saw that with GV or JY not sayen those guys werre great actors. But RH def has something with JJ on screen. Would really like for them to have another chance.I dont know how it would work if it turned out Carly hit Jake just don’t know. Dont like that Mikey is covering things up especially when a young child is involved and its his cousin that died.

    I’m not impressed with these spoilers. Luke being the one who hit Jake is beyond stupid. I hope the writers don’t go there and that it was Carly instead. I rather see a heating up rivalry between Carly and Liz/Jason than to see Lucky and Luke’s relationship destroyed.

    Otherwise this show is pretty depressive. And if you live in Port Chuck you have to be afraid for your children these days. Jake was killed, Josslyn fighting for her life and Brenda wants to protect Lucian. Who’s next? Something happing to little Emma? Maybe with crazy Lisa involved?

    I know that Guza at least used to be a good writer and we don’t know what would come after him, but watching this show, even with all the great performances, this guy needs to be fired.

    Well the storylines could play out for a long time with it being either Luke or Carly. Now that I think about it, this would probably make for a good round seven hundred and sixty-five of Carly vs. Liz witchfest. And if St. Jason ever defended Carly to Liz (if Carly did it), well I think SB would lose too many of his Liason fans, so I doubt they would play that. You never know though.

    I agree Steve Burton is doing amazing job I hope next year he JJ and Becky will get emmys because the past week scenes were outstanding..

    we see Lucky pain as much as Jason and Liz…

    Im not sure its a good idea to make it luke,yes good drama for now but what about the future?? if Luke killed Jake,how can Lucky overcome that?? can he forgive him?? its kind of destroying their relationship that has ups and downs but not like this!!

    IMHO Jason has been living with grief since he decided to relinquish his rights to Jake, so I have no problem with this story being heavily focused on his grief! Jake was his son! I’m sure they’ll show Lucky’s grief also, and he was also Jakes dad, so I’m not mad about that either! I like the fact that Jason & Lucky have been getting alone alot better lately and I’m sure this will help to bring them even closer, until Jason has to deal with Luke or Lizzy beds them both again! lol!

    I agree, Jason has the added regret of not being part of jakes life. He is now wondering if any of that was worth it. And I just want to state that I watch the show to see my favorite characters Carly, and Jason. So I don’t think it’s heavy on the Jason. I think Steve Burton has been doing a phenominal job, actually I think they all have!

    The story should not only center around Jason. Elizabeth is…was the child’s mother and I don’t think the spoiler mentioned her once. Where will she be when all of this drama is taking place… in shadybrook or knowing Guza further assassinating her character by having her go after some man. |(
    I prefer her being in SHADYBROOK.

    Where does her character go from here????

    The pic of Jason looks so sad its heart wrenching.
    Jason is allowed to grieve for his son because he was his biological father. Even though they had 1 scene a year he still showed how much he loved Jake in the scene.

    I want it to be Carly. Let me rephrase I would love :) :) it to be Carly just to see Elizabeth rip her in two.
    Cat fight anyone!!!!
    Just saying.

    Macncheese, I agree with you. I think Steve Burton and Laura Wright have the best chemistry. Laura’s chemistry with Ingo Rademacher, or Maurice Benard is not as evident as her chemistry with SB. I don’t think they should minimize Liz & Lucky’s grief, but Jason’s grief should be focused on as well.

    If you think about, Jason kept his distance from Jake under the premise of keeping him safe. Now he’s discovered that despite his sacrifice, his son was taken from him and he will never get to know the child. As long as Jake was alive, Jason had the option to change his mind. (Or the writers would have had the option for a whole host of story lines.) You know how fast time progresses in soap years. In 5-6 six years, Jake could have become an 18-year-old hellion, following behind Michael as a full-fledged mafioso.

    I am not surprised that Luke was named as the culprit. Tony Geary is about to go on his summer vacation, as mandated in his contract. So, this conflict gives Luke the perfect excuse to disappear, in disgrace. It also gives Tony a really juicy story line — something he has not had in a long time. Luke will return in six months (real-time), but that will translate into a much longer period in soap years. He will try to repair the broken relationship after he returns.

    Elizabeth can’t be front center in her own story its seems more about Jason and Carly of course why am I not surprised. They keep her away from Jason and just as soon as she gets a story (about a baby of course because that’s all they will write for her) here he is begging her for Jake’ kidney … am I really suppose to feel sorry for a man who chose the mob (and Carly’s kids) over his own?

    Ummm don’t think so his grieving means nothing to me so he can blubber away bottom line he preferred violence over his kid that’s it. I don’t care about Jason pulling a gun on Luke if its Elizabeth then that’s drama. Luke never gave a rat’s ass about Jacob and mocked Lucky for raising Elizabeth’s kids as he puts it.

    So its anticlimactic for me I guess this is Tony’s VaKay exit he’ll go to rehab (just like Monica) and Jake will be forgotten (just like AJ and Jason will be heralded as suffering through his great pain after making his great sacrifice after hanging out with every kid in town wonder who is keeping them safe)?

    Hopefully Elizabeth will be more proactive in the story about her child not just in mommy crying mode but I get to see her written for showing the range of emotions she will be going through after the loss of Jakey.
    Jason can go somewhere and sit down.

    As for them rewriting her exit story the premise is still being played on screen poor Jason that has nothing to do with Elizabeth.

    I DO NOT want it to be carly, and honestly if it is, then its an accident so no one should be ripping in to her, esp. when she was distracted by thoughts of her little girl being in the hospital – its not like she was chasing someone to get back a syringe or speeding to get to the airport. Luke is entirely another situation as his responsibility would stem from him being drunk.

But as much as I hate Carly, I’d hate it to be her, because you know that for all the anger that Jason will show towards Luke…pulling the gun and all…he’d give that witch Carly a free pass!! And then I’d have to go buy a new tv bacause I’d throw my remote straight thru it |(

    @mitzee. I understand the Jake storyline. Let’s be honest here, I doubt soaps will survive 10 years from now. If I was betting, it would probably be the end of soaps within 5 years. I am sure TPTB are aware of this, and probably more so of the dynamics behind it. So the possibility of aging Jake in a few years, and storyline written between Jason and his son, and his dangerous life, etc is not realistic. Becky hardly looks old enough to have young children, let alone a preteen or a teenager. Even Steve Burton made a comment that by the time Jake was aged, soaps would probably no longer be around, or something to that effect. Also, I think based on the comments Steve has made at recent fan events, his family is the most important thing to him, and his wife does not want to raise their children in LA, and is ready to move permanantly to TN. It is only a matter of time before he leaves GH.

    I’ve been watching GH since Demi Moore and John Stamos was on there, those are my first memories of GH whenever that was. And I have to say the major issue with GH for me is lack of family, no history, no consistancy, no respect for fans, no building up to the Jake story, just in your face and back out again in a couple of days and they expect for people to care? I remember the BJ/Maxie story and that was amazing, you tube it and you’ll see that this story dos not even come close. When Tony Jones leaned in and listened to to BJ’s heart beating in Maxie’s chest to this day bring tears. What are we to listen to with Joss? Poor little thing peeing! Sorry but, this story is unforgivable, not because of the acting, it is the writing. It’s a rip off in so many ways for so many fans, not just the “Liason/Jasam” fans which both get ripped off in all of this but, fans of General Hospital PERIOD! A deaf/blind monkey could do a better job writing and my appoligies to any deaf/blind monkies out there, I really should not have thrown you in with the GH writers, that’s a low blow on my part! I pray as a long time fan of this show that there is always hope and the show can be redeemed. Who knows maybe Pamela Ewing had another bad dream!! Hell they’ve ripped off so many other stories why not a Dallas classic?

    It makes me angry that this story is so focused on Jason. Why are Lucky & Elizabeth supporting a story about THEIR son dying? The 3 of them should be driving this storyline. Carly just makes me sick how she praises Jason for “saving” Josslyn.

    All the saintly one got was a slap in the face when he asked for Jake’s kidney. It was LUCKY that convinced Liz to donate the kidneys. But, of course, the Messiah gets all the credit. Carly hasn’t been to check on Jake’s parents not one time since THEY saved her daughter’s life.

    There was an interview with LW where she stated that,”everything falls onto one man’s shoulder’s” which meant a Jason heavy s/l. Of course, the hit and run was suppose to be Becky’s exit s/l, but you would think the woman that carried Jake for nine months and Lucky who raised the boy would be front and center.

    I must cosign with everyone else. Lucky/Liz should be front and center. Yes, Jason is sad because he never really got to know his son and now he will never get that chance. HOWEVER, Lucky and Liz raised Jake and should therefore be CARRYING the storyline. I don’t mind Jason on the side, but it shouldn’t be completely focused on him. And I just can’t get behind Carly’s focus of it just being Jason’s son, Jason’s son. OMG, Jason’s son??? What about your cousin, Lucky, dear??? Who raised the child and thought of him as HIS OWN SON??? We’re talking family here and as much time as you spend w/uncle Luke, I would think concern and devastation would go for his son, again, your cousin, as well.

    Or Liz, your mortal enemy, who relented and gave permission to give your daughter one of Jake’s kidney’s???? The grief isn’t balanced here, nor is the sympathy on her end. And quite frankly, it pisses me off. And like others, I too can’t believe that she hasn’t taken time to visit Lucky/Liz. Especially Elizabeth, great gravy. I think if a woman I despised and vice versa, out of the goodness of her heart, chose to help save my child in the manner that Jake’s kidney saved Joss, I think I’d be paying her a few visits until she got sick of me, as well as sending her some fruit baskets for the rest of my life while I’m at it.

    You and everyone else are correct. As a Carly fan, and I LOVE to look at Jason, this story should be focused on Liz & Lucky. However, we agreed, it wasn’t the story that was good, it was a recycled choppy story from back in the day. Characters and scenes were missing.
    The acting of characters is what made the story.

    My thing..why aren’t more people with Liz? I understand Robin is a Dr and has a life, but who does Liz have? Where is her sister? Her mother? Her father? Her grandmother? Does she have friends besides Robin?? Why isn’t Robin with her as a friend and as a mother of a small child??
    No mention of Laura coming to stay with her.

    JAQ,,,One of the things with Liz, is her friends are all gone. Emily is dead. Where are Lainey and Kelly? Robin is probably at the hospital. Lulu is mad at her. Audrey hasn’t been on screen since 2009? Nadine was given the boot when Rebecca came to town. Rebecca is now gone. Sarah has not been onscreen since 2002. GH rarely mentions Liz’s parents or her other Hardy family members. It’s too bad that Terrell didn’t turn out to be Dr. Tommy Hardy, Jr. I used to love GNO with Liz, Emily, Kelly, Lainey, Nadine, and Robin. I really liked Nadine during the B&W Ball then they turned her into this hillbilly paired with Nicholas.

    The only thing I would remind people of re:Carly is that this is still the next day. Jake got hit at 8:00 pm. They operated but it was short and then there was the time for them to test joss/jake and for all the parents to come together, and then they operated on carly’s daughter. According to the script, she didnt leave the hospital all night. So far she ONLY left to tell her best friend that she may have been the driver I thought so he wouldnt hear it from someone else. Yes, Carly has obligations to Liz and lucky, but I could see where she is in the place where the only thing that would ever get her to leave her daughters side is something to do with someone else she considers family – jax, jason, sonny, michael, or morgan period. Now if joss comes home and we see carly hanging out at the metro court a week later and then liz comes in for lunch and she ignores her, yeah I’ll be right with you bashing carly, but since it has only been one day pc time, I am going to wait and see how it plays out.

    Liason…you are so right. I forgot about Lainey & Kelly. Her ‘drinking’ buddies. :beer: Where are they?? Was it a ‘stupid’ oversight on GH part or were those scenes cut too?? We will never know.
    As far as her family goes, I agree. GH has never acknowledge her mother, and for those of us who are old enough we can remember Dr. Jeff. (I LOVED him) Audrey is mentioned when babysitting needs are demanded.

    I just wrote on another thread to EET, and the more I think about it….GH writes like people have low IQ’s. Do they think the viewers don’t wonder about these things? Is it OK to not mention it, then to make a ‘mention’ in passing? Or is it soo out of budget that they can’t lure some of these people back to Pt Chuckles for a day??

    EET had some brilliant writing ideas for the show. It would take GH to a place that would make them stand out from the other soaps.
    Basically, she was suggesting bringing family & business together.
    Writing like primetime, but for daytime.
    Wouldn’t that set this show apart from others??

    I agree EET. However, if such little time has passed, Jos sure made a FAST recovery!!
    To say its hard to keep a child still, then skip her scenes. Or talk to an empty crib!! (we are to beleive baby in crib)

    Writers are throwing ‘mixed messages’ to the viewer. It is the next day. The day after. So that means that good writing will produce these visibly absent people this week?? Olivia won’t be the only person bringing a casserole over?

Is it OK to not mention it, then to make a ‘mention’ in passing? Or is it so out of budget that they can’t lure some of these people back to Pt Chuckles for a day??

    JAQ, I agree that the GH writers give us material that makes me suspect they think the viewers have low IQs and memory loss. For longtime viewers, with full recollection of the various families, it is difficult to see a s/l as tragic as this one. Then, not to see key characters return to support the grieving parents does not make sense.

    We know many of the actors who portray legacy characters, such as Monica, Bobby and Elizabeth’s grandmother, are no longer under contract. But GH could surely bring them back for a couple of appearances. Furthermore, a more realistic portrayal would have had every member of both Liz & Lucky’s families there at the hospital, hovering. (That is how I have seen it play out in real life.) I did not like their writing the episode with Luke unable to stay @ the hospital with Lucky.

    Mitzee…but that is who Luke is! He runs. When things are too rough for him to deal with, he usually leaves the country. At least he was compassionate enough to stay! But then again, its the day ‘after’ for the story. He ran to the bottle for now.

    In no culture do I not see family & friends rushing to the hospital ASAP. Grandparents should have been on a plane during Jakes surgery. Though he died, they still could have said their ‘good byes’ while he was on life support. As well as the acting was last week, the story was written horribly. And it showed. Parts were cut out. Parts that were so important were edited out, leaving us to believe we missed a day or so.

    If GH is so broke, that they can not bring back for one day 3-4 characters, then they need to ‘reevaluate’ who they ‘lure’ back to the show who has no acting abilites and focus on that character only.
    HUGE mistake. Think of all the money they would have saved had they not brought VGM back!!

    DONE RANTING!! lol >)

    If you can even believe it, she is tinier in person! The times I have met her, I can literally wrap an arm around her entire waist. And I think to myself, THIS WOMAN HAS 3 KIDS???? Life isn’t fair, lol. But I’ve noticed all the GH women are so small in person, but they still look so healthy too.

    Totally agree! I think it is also the regret of not really knowing or having memories of Jake that will haunt Jason as well. I personally am loving the dynamics of Jake’s two fathers. The emotions of both Jason and Lucky have been so on point. And the moment that they shared in the hall outside of Jake’s room was absolutely heart wrenching. Kudos to Steve and Jonathan!
