IDK if he will be still the man who loves Sam ... but he will still be a robot. SB made it clear that he wouldn't allow the writers to do anything else.

Such a shame ... because Jason could be a much more complex character. Don't see it happening though. Rather sooner than later he will be Sonny's puppet and hit man again.

I just hope that he doesn't wake up with a foreign accent.......... Laughing out loud

But seriously, I am looking forward to seeing a DIFFERENT Jason, since the current Jason is the only one I have ever known (I only started watching GH regularly in the 2000s.)

With that being said, I hope the "new" Jason also has a penchant for skintight black shirts. Wink

It's a well done promo. Hope the story line is well done. Loved the quick flashback to old school Jason at the time of the first accident. And I'm hoping the fact that Monica is appearing in the promos means that ABC has realized that soap viewers want a show with as many beloved characters mixing it up with new ones as possible. Now if only nurse Bobbie would make a reappearance...

@alstonboy4315---perhaps new and improved Jason will keep the t's but drop the gun and move into the Q's guest house. Dammit if those t's aren't the best thing about current Jason...

Yes. There is no way in heck that Frons is going to allow his mandated pairing to be broken up unless ME is coming over from OLTL. No way, no how.

Soapjunkie I'm not sure SBu or any soap actor has the ability to dictate their character any more. Those times have come and gone, IMO. While SBu was adamant about that in the recent ML interview, he also said he pretty much just shows up and reads his daily lines not caring what the future holds for JM. When it becomes just a paycheck does it really matter what your onscreen persona is doing?

That said, I think I'm ready for a change. Jason Morgan has become a boring hitman(how is that even possible?). His story goes no where-ever. He doesn't necessarily need to be reQ'ed but maybe wake up and realize that he's let Sonny and Carly run his life all these years. Let him feel guilt and remorse. Yes I know they showed him crying about Jake, but it didn't matter enough for him to change. I'd like to see him struggle with his life choices and realize he's more than what Sonny allows him to be.

That is a good promo.
Nothing on this show will ever change though, so I'm gonna guess that Jason will be: The same. Thanks for letting me play the game though, Mr. Voice-Over Guy.

I know it's being done with SPinelli, but I'd crack up if he'd awake and had a British accent! LOL

@ Daisy----I love "re-Q'ed"! I may have to steal that one, with your permission of course.

Maybe he will wake the old Jason and be in love with Robin lol. One thing is for sure either way JaSam fans have a hard way to go, oh well.

I don't want him re-Q'd but if he woke up with a new found respect for his family and not think that Sonny/Carly hung the moon than its a win-win for me.

I also believe there is no way in hell that Frons would allow his special couple to be broken, so I will hope that Garin will at least be able to jump start one of the most boring couples I have had the pleasure of FF over the last three years.

I WANT MY JASON Q BACK!!!

They don't have to make him a complete nice guy, they can make him edgy. I'm sure it will be well-written with Garin at the helm, I just don't think anything will change.

I don't see why it has to be one "Jason" or the other Jason.  It could be extremely compelling to have him wake up the person he has always been - Jason Morgan Quatermaine.  Have his memories and emotions restored, while retaining all his memories as Jason Morgan.  It would provide a tremendous acting challenge to Steve Burton having Jason struggle with who and what he has become, and what it has cost him.  Jason Quartermaine loved his family above and beyond anything and anyone else - and having him reconcile what his actions over the last 15 years have cost him and his family is very compelling.  His coming to terms with what he has done to his family (AJ, Monica, Alan) and what he has allowed his own life to become (murderer, criminal, absentee parent) has the potential for a long term character driven story that could breath life into a monotonous mob driven plot.

Big smile Big smile Big smile Big smile ITA with everything written here!! To have Jason retain all memories of "both lives" and have to deal with what is was/has become would be wonderful for both the character and SB as an actor!

This is exciting! I never got to know Jason Q because when I started he was already Jason M. I LOVE this! I would love to see him as a Quartermaine again just to stick it to asshole Sonny and selfish Carly! I would love to see what their lives turn into without Jason to hold them together. So much story to tell here. The smart thing would be to have him wake up a Q. But can he still be in love with Sam please?? That would make me sad if he didn't love her anymore... Sad

Love what Lisad had to say. If this were to be the way he re-emerges, I'm interested to see how Michael will react to an Uncle that now has both Mob/Morgan as well as Quartermaine memories. Which family will he end up with? That will be story in and of itself... Innocent

Any version of Jason that wakes up will be in love with sam. Even when he remembered nothing, he still ended up in love with/trusting Sam. Gh knows that Scrubs and JaSam are their two powercouples and one of the few things they have done right in the last few years. With Sam becoming more like she was during Jasam 1.0, the couple will only improve. If it were up to me, Jason would wake up with his Q memories and his Morgan memories, turn to sam and say, What the H^LL was I thinking marrying courtho and bedding Skankabeth. I guess now I understand it - I just needed to have my head examined!!!! Sick Sick Sick Sick Sick Sick Sick Sick

Jasam a powerhouse couple? Only in Frons' mind. They haven't brought up the ratings during the storylines they are promo'd in (and just ask Luke and Laura fans how one couple can affect ratings). I will agree that they are a popular couple, but a powerhouse couple suggests that the couple has power based on some value they have....and this couple has no value where it counts.

And I think JQ would be mortified to find out he is engaged to a con-artist skank who endangered his son multiple times.

^^ I am with you js. Jason and Sam are definitely not a "powerhouse" couple. GH only has three couples: JaSam, Scrubs and Lante. The fact that these couples have any fans at all is because these are the only couples on GH in years now. This is not the 80's-early 90's, where soaps were filled with couples and compelling triangles. Also, is "powerhouse" the special, quieter brother of "supercouple." Wink

Back on topic, Lisad (post #13) said it beautifully.

I would like to see Jason have both memories combine the hit man and medical student. If he is all JQ I don't see him wanting Liz or Sam. One is a con and the other has had babies with 3 different men. I like both Sam and Liz but I wouldn't want my son the Dr bring either one of them home.

alstonboy, you read my mind! Some call him a robot, but I disagree, he has displayed range when written properly. I do not care if they call him JaBot -- he does a helluva lot more for the black tee than Simon Cowell.

Thanks, Mitzee......

Simon has a nice body, but I don't like my men mean and surly. That makes him VERY unattractive to me.

Emsnana the difference is that Sam hasnt been a con in years - and in fact, while the story was beyond lame, Sam did just same much of port charles not all that long ago when she wrangled the toxic ball away from trevor. Plus, shes kind to his mom AND she hasnt left his side while he has been in the hospital. Meanwhile Liz is still getting knocked up, still cheating or trying to cheat, still lying, and, even though she caused the accident she has yet to be even remotely concerned with jason's condition. If Monica has to choose one for jason to bring home for pizza on T-Day, I have no doubt it would be Sam.

EET - While Sam isn't out marrying random men to steal their life savings away from them, she is still a criminal. If Jason were to embrace his Qness, I would expect that he would cut ties with Sonny's criminal life and all of the criminals he works with. Sam is part of that life. She embraces the criminal life. She is a party to all of his criminal activities before, during, and after the fact. She is still a con. She is using that skillset to keep Jason happy. She agrees with his every whim. She applauds his stupidity. How do you think she conned all of her many husbandsinto marrying her? Was it all sex? Or, did she express interest in golf because they liked golf? Did she bump into them at a wine tasting and bond over mutual interest? With Jason, her con is a total devotion in his thug life. If he woke up Jason Q, would she change to interest the poor sweater wearing med student? Would Sam suddenly embrace old lady holiday sweaters?

JS3557 - I agree with you. GH doesn't have any supercouples. I cannot remember a supercouple where one half carried coffee and parked themselves in the others home waiting. Luke and Laura? Anna and Robert? Frisco and Felicia? Lucky and Liz? Alan and monica? Bo and Hope? Tad and Dixie? I guess my idea of a super couple must be really different from EEts.

@EET - Why are you invoking Elizabeth or Courtney? She wasn't mentioned, yet, you hate. There has got to be more to Sam-fandom then hating Jason's other pairings.
