HomeTagsComings & GoingsWill Franco Destroy The JaSam Wedding on General Hospital???! Jamey Giddens July 25, 2011 36 Comments Now this is one guest I am glad to see register for the upcoming JaSam wedding! TV Guide's Michael Logan is exclusively reporting goofy madman Franco (James Franco) is coming back to General Hospital this fall, just in time for Jason Morgan's (Steve Burton) nuptials with Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco). This development, coupled with spoilers of Liz (Rebecca Herbst) leaning on SuperJase in the coming weeks, has this card-carrying Liasonite holding on to hope that someone will stop this disastrous broom jump. Although, I must admit the proposal stuff was sorta cute and Burton, Monaco, Kirsten Storms and Nancy Lee Grahn all did solid, heartfelt work. I know, I know, my fellow Liason lovers, but it was romantic, even if I don't like the pairing! Anyhoo, hurry up, Franco and bust this shiz up!

Log in to Reply SwanQueen59 July 25, 2011 As talented as this gentleman is and for the publicity he has generated for GH,(however much), I am hoping this is his “Swan Song”. (No pun intended-I know that was really bad.) 0:) Log in to Reply AlistairCrane July 25, 2011 I don’t normally watch GH but I always make a point to tune in for Franco! Log in to Reply CarlyCfan July 25, 2011 Ugh. Enough already. Franco needs to GFTO of GH and never come back. Log in to Reply sunbeam July 25, 2011 Jamey I disagree with you about Jiz. Could anybody tell the what the big deal is about Liason? And could Franco stay away from my Jasam wedding and go bother Sonny or somebody. Can’t Saint Liz lean on Lucky not Jason because Lucky helped raised Jake. Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens July 25, 2011 Can’t Saint Liz lean on Lucky not Jason because Lucky helped raised Jake *** Lucky’s too busy crying every five minutes for my Lizzy Beth to lean on him. Sam can share! She’s had SuperJase to herself for far too long! LOL Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 July 25, 2011 James Franco is wacky, unconventional, kinda weird, kinda creepy, kinda geeky…. Both the actor and the character. :love: So why do I like him so much? I look forward to his return. I actually don’t want to see Jason and Sam get married unless they throw a few monkey wrenches into the mix. Why should get a TOTALLY uneventful wedding when noone else in Port Charles does? Log in to Reply bishbay July 25, 2011 Would be awesome if Sam and Liz rolled sixes in this storyline. Log in to Reply sunbeam July 25, 2011 Couldn’t the writers pair Liz with someone new? Other then Lucky and Jason? Please that triangle is getting very old. Log in to Reply jlafferty23 July 25, 2011 UGHHH, Franco I love you but stay away from my JaSam wedding!! Log in to Reply GHFan777 July 25, 2011 While I agree with you in principal Jamey…as a fellow Liason fan…I almost sort of want this wedding to happen. Marriage is the kiss of death on this show…the sooner Jasam married…the sooner this horrible couple will be over with. Log in to Reply JasamForever July 25, 2011 Jasam will not be over with after the wedding, it will just bring more storyline. They are still trying to have a baby. It least hopefully, Jasam will get what Laison never did in one respect. I don’t mind Franco. I just hate his return is around the Jasam wedding, but I guess we have to have that soap drama. I for one, am looking forward to it, especially with a new writer. Log in to Reply curacaoman July 25, 2011 I thought that with the Luza gone, we had seen the last of this creep! So dissapointed Garin! Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin July 25, 2011 What is that I smell >>sniff sniff>> oh its the scent of Liason desperation LOL Sure Franco will muck up the wedding, but like much of the angst JaSam has faced, it will only make them stronger because they will overcome it together. I also would say that until they know the fate of GH, I cant imagine GW breaking up JaSam – if the show is going to end in a year, I could see him ending with the birth of the next Quartermaine heir (and when the show returns online my guess is the kid is suddenly like five LOL) I seem to remember a lot of the Liason fans saying that any Q heir is important to the canvas and that there is SOOO much potential story that was lost with the death of Jake. While they shouldnt have offed Jake, the JaSam child brings back all that potential….and the good news too is that Sam wouldnt bar monica from seeing her grandchild. Shes always liked monica and if anything she would encourage that relationship. Log in to Reply Ravennite613 July 25, 2011 One can only dream that the boredom that is JaSam will be brought down by Franco, that or Franco announces that he really has Jake forcing them to put the unholy matrimoney on hold. While I agree with you Jamey that the engagement was romantic, I also agree with the poster who mentioned that marriage on this show is the kiss of death. And for the poster who asked what was so special about Liason maybe its the same thing that JaSam fans see in their couple….it’s all subjective and I’ve been subjected too long to the ride-or-die chick and the Borg. I for one cannot wait to see Carly get on her high horse about the upcoming nuptials Log in to Reply No Daisy July 25, 2011 I don’t see why they keep bringing him back. I may be wrong but I don’t think his visits have helped the ratings and every visit in the past has screwed up the pacing/continuity of the show. I always thought it was a Fruza wank that they had the guy on. The only reason I can see for having the serial killer come on at this point is they want to unload some dead weight from the show. So who is GH planning on killing now? Is there a mass exodus planned? The only reason I’d be glad he was on would be to tell Liz that Aiden isn’t her kid and that he switched them at birth. Too bad Liz just had a DNA test run, although the chances of a DNA test being tampered with on a soap makes it still a viable option. I”m sorry, I know its just a baby, but giving Liz 3 kids wrecked her, and Jake should never have been the one to be killed. I’d like to see Liz move on with just her and Cam at this point. Lucky and Liz are boring, and I don’t want Elizabeth pining for Jason if he’s going to marry Sam. She deserves better than what she has gotten from GH for the past 2 years. Its past time for Elizabeth Webber to rise like a Phoenix from the ashes of her GH storyline and reinvent herself. At the very least, I’m hoping GW at least puts a stop to EW being the GH screwup. Log in to Reply tealita July 25, 2011 So they do have Franco up their sleeve. Oh well, the more the merrier. Go Jasam! Log in to Reply mr.sam mccall1 July 25, 2011 MY GOD Liz has no bearing on Jason and Sam. Like EET said desperation things are looking up Franco is a werido but I think GW will give him something better. Log in to Reply mipeony July 25, 2011 While I hate anything having to do with Franco on GH, how wonderful would it be if Jax were to rescue/”kidnap”(however one would view it) Joss from Carly and take her away forever while Franco was in town??? Franco would be the perfect scapegoat, and since ole smartypants Jason and his computer geek Spinelli can never seem to quite pin down Franco, Jax could get away with it for years without the unholy trinity figuring it out! Yeah, I know it’s just a fantasy, but that’s how I would write it! Log in to Reply maxsmom July 25, 2011 Franco has been spreading himself so thin there isn’t much left for me to love and love him I did before the first GH visit. I gave GW until Labor Day to win me over, I may have to extend that to Halloween. Ravennite, you’re the opposite of Franco, your too few dropins make me miss you all the more. Log in to Reply Ravennite613 July 25, 2011 Well Thanks maxsmom (I think I’m blushing) but I must thank “The Twitter” since I follow Jamey I saw him mention this and I raced right over to post something Log in to Reply GHfan-4now July 25, 2011 And for the poster who asked what was so special about Liason maybe its the same thing that JaSam fans see in their couple….it’s all subjective *********** Exactly. It’s all subjective. Anyway, I’m already involved in another fanbase war that I could actually WIN! Gotta put more stock into it for the time being, lol, no need to add more to the pile with my continued Liason/JaSam debates unless it’s an actual triangle, which I don’t really see happening anytime soon… That said… UGH! to Franco. I love James dearly, but I’m just not a GHFranco fan… Log in to Reply sassysdreams July 25, 2011 Geesh!!! Not the least bit concerned. It’s a SOAP OPERA! It’s supposed to have drama and humor and love and this will provide all three! And love will win in the end with a beautiful coming together of two soul mates in a magical wedding!!! JaSam!!!!! :love: :love: :love: Log in to Reply maxsmom July 25, 2011 Oh Raven, “I dont care how you get here just get here if you can”–Oleta Adams version by the by, Jason would have to return to the Jason I loved, and I want to speak of myself in the third person to make it clear that Maxsmom wants Jason to return to the Jason Maxsmom loved. I can’t speak to what the Jason anyone else loved, loves, hates, or couldn’t give a fig about would do. That said, Liason would only work for me with my Jason. Log in to Reply maxsmom July 25, 2011 Fan4now, I miss the OLTL recaps(Luke/Jamey/Jillian are you listening) but I dont know if I could stand the Todd vs. Todd, Roger vs. TSJ, TnB vs. TnT debates, TSJ’s announcement of his departure gave a peak and it might make Liason vs. Jasam look like a tea party. Log in to Reply GHfan-4now July 25, 2011 ACK! You don’t want to get involved, maxsmom, TRUST ME! You already see me going off on twitter as it is, lol! I think every other board, except this one, thank goodness, there are folks quickly aligning themselves with T&B v TnT once again … I don’t even think it’s about the men anymore, funny enough, they’re irrelevant unless they mention one woman’s name over another, or more than once. JaSam/Liason is really like a picnic, a break from my daily crazy. TnT & T&B were vicious back in the day. Out of all the wars I’ve been in, I think that was/is the worst, lol. So yeah, thanks, Todd/Todd, once again, it’s now less about YOU men and more about your women folk! Log in to Reply Teach19 July 26, 2011 Ugh Franco again!!! If he is back to disrupt the Jasam wedding I might just tune in. If not then why, why, why is he back??? I really thought GW had a brain might try and go back to the greatest triangle GH has ever had—Jasam vs Liason. I hope he realizes what he has before GH is off the air! Log in to Reply BornSoapStar July 26, 2011 Bless you Jamey Giddens!!! Loved your post! While not a fan of Franco’s previous appearances…if it’s to bust up the Ja1.5 wedding then I’m all for his return. As a fellow card-carrying Liasonite since 1999 I totally agree with you. Garin better go big or go home and continuing to recycle Ja1.5 or LL2 is not a good start. Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott July 26, 2011 It will be interesting to see Franco written by another writer. I am looking forward to it. Log in to Reply GHvetfan July 26, 2011 Can someone please kill Franco this time around? Log in to Reply sassysdreams July 26, 2011 [quote=GHvetfan]Can someone please kill Franco this time around?[/quote] I’m feeling a little faint because we actually agree on something!! Log in to Reply GHvetfan July 26, 2011 Sassy – -I don’t know what your issue with him is but he adds nothing to the show. He is a gimmick and a distraction from the regular characters and stories. In my opinion, he has never moved story forward. I think it is great that GH actors can say that they worked with a movie star at the end of the day but they can do that in any acting workshop in L.A. Why must we suffer? His stories are all silliness and if I was a fan of Jason and Sam, I would worry that he will be the focus of their wedding day. Will he grab the bride? Will he taunt Jason about Jake? Will Jason leave to track him? I like soap weddings and I like the angst that is usually included with guests and past loves. It is all soapy goodness. I don’t think Franco is needed. Will they include my fave part of a wedding where they ask if anyone present knows a reason why ……..? Will he be that part? This just gives me an additional reason not to watch. Truth be told… I would already watch with finger on fast forward waiting to see if the wedding is stopped. Log in to Reply LizzieVee July 26, 2011 I have to agree, see no need for Franco to come back. He did nothing for the show the first 2 times; however, if he’s back to break up the wedding then I’m for it! LOL!! And, regarding Sam and Monica’s relationship, let’s not forget that the elephant is still in the room and Edward and Monica don’t know what their potential daughter-in-law did in regards to keeping them away from their grandson when she was spewing out Jason’s life it too dangerous for a child and all she did to keep Elizabeth’s fears of his dangerous lifestyle warrented. I’m sure Guza had no plans on going anywhere near it but Wolfe might. When they find out, I’m sure she won’t be getting the daugher-in-law of the year award. Log in to Reply aforeverliasonfan July 26, 2011 Oh please let Franco run off with Sam never to be seen again!! PLEASE.. Lets hope GW has something like that planned, can’t abide Jasam or a farce of a wedding for them either. I hope if Franco comes back that he has baby Jake! THAT would make me want to watch Franco’s return… he’s whacked out enough to have taken Jake since Jason didn’t “VALUE” him… and that would be a great SL for a lot of the canvas… I’d watch for it. But I won’t watch Jasam marry, gag… Log in to Reply sassysdreams July 26, 2011 [quote=GHvetfan]Sassy – I don’t know what your issue with him is but he adds nothing to the show.
