HomeTVGeneral HospitalWill Jason Be The Man Sam Loves After Surgery on GH? Luke Kerr August 16, 2011 46 Comments Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) has a ticking time bomb in his head and everyone in Port Charles wonders who he will be after surgery? Will Sam (Kelly Monaco) get the man back she loves? Watch this week’s General Hospital promo after the jump! 46 Responses soapjunkie88 August 16, 2011 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. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 August 16, 2011 I just hope that he doesn’t wake up with a foreign accent………. 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. Log in to Reply soapfan616 August 16, 2011 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… Log in to Reply soapfan616 August 16, 2011 @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… Log in to Reply liason4real August 16, 2011 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. Log in to Reply No Daisy August 16, 2011 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. Log in to Reply Miry August 16, 2011 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. Log in to Reply Danielle August 16, 2011 I know it’s being done with SPinelli, but I’d crack up if he’d awake and had a British accent! LOL Log in to Reply soapfan616 August 16, 2011 @ Daisy—-I love “re-Q’ed”! I may have to steal that one, with your permission of course. Log in to Reply shede25 August 16, 2011 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. Log in to Reply keanna August 16, 2011 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. Log in to Reply Lisad August 16, 2011 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. Log in to Reply Ravennite613 August 16, 2011 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.

Log in to Reply arielade August 16, 2011 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… Log in to Reply SwanQueen59 August 16, 2011 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… 0:) Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin August 16, 2011 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!!!! :Sp :Sp :Sp :Sp :Sp :Sp :Sp :Sp Log in to Reply DaytimeFan0001 August 17, 2011 The question should be- who will Steve Burton let Jason be? lol Log in to Reply js3557 August 17, 2011 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. Log in to Reply soapbaby August 17, 2011 ^^ 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.” Back on topic, Lisad (post #13) said it beautifully. Log in to Reply emsnana August 18, 2011 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.

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. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 August 18, 2011 Thanks, Mitzee…… Simon has a nice body, but I don’t like my men mean and surly. That makes him VERY unattractive to me. Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin August 18, 2011 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. Log in to Reply GHvetfan August 18, 2011 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. Log in to Reply soapbaby August 18, 2011 @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. Log in to Reply JasamForever August 18, 2011 @soapbaby- Why are you referring to EET as “you hate.” You need to settle down. Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin August 18, 2011 Actually Soap I loved Jarly AND I loved Robin and Jason, so Ive been content with Jasons pairings more years than not.. I actually didnt mind Courtney in the beginning but she began to grate on me in the end, and Im not convinced he even really loved her so much as he wanted to save her from aj and sonny. The fact that she slept with nik because emily wouldnt give it up after her RAPE – that ruined her for me. Courtho and snarkabrow were invoked because someone said that jason Q would most definitely break up with sam and that cant happen under the current regime. We saw amnesiac jason fall back in love with sam, and I think even as a Q that remembered his morgan time, he would recall all the moments that they supported one another and all the times that laughed together and all the times that they saved each other. What would he remember with Courtney and Liz, that just like sam they knew jason was a mobster and that just like sam they were totally okay with it until it no longer served them. Lets not forget that even after court made her big stand about having to kill a police officer, she STILL wanted Jason back and Liz wanted Jason even after hearing him threaten the guy in his office and even after the explosion at the coffee shop and even after michael was shot in the head – it was only after jake was kidnapped by the russians because Liz was yammering about their not so secret relationship all over town – that she then said okay maybe I cant do this after all. So if Sam being with jason makes her a defacto criminal since she is aware of his crimes and acknowledges that if she wants him, she has to accept that he is in the mob, then all the women he (and/or sonny) have been involved with are equally guilty. In fact, I dont know that there is a character on the canvas that hasnt enabled one of them at some point – even mac allowed jason to go after Lisa when his own police officers were there and he let jason go after claudia knowing he would kill her, all because Jax asked. Later emsana brought up the fact that monica might not want either woman as the wife of jason the doctor. Im not so sure about that, as I think monica of all people, understands that people change. As for Sam-fandom I like her because I find her heroic – you might recall her actions at the MC and with Alexis and with the black and white ball. I love that she is a great sister, a pretty decent friend, and fiercely protective of the people she loves. Its not about hating, its all about the love. Log in to Reply soapbaby August 18, 2011 Ok, commenting on the hate of characters as evidenced in the forms of “Skankabeth” and “Courtneyho” when there was no mention of Elizabeth or Courtney prior. I think disparaging nicknames for characters riles up fanbases. I am a fan of Elizabeth and Courtney and tearing them down is not necessary to build up Sam McCall. JasamForever – I suggest you read all of the posts carefully before commenting. Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin August 18, 2011 First off since when was it decided that posters cant hate the characters they want to or that it was something that you should call people out for, soap? I could see you maybe having a point about courtney since she wasnt in the vid (although search the site for courtho and look at how many people have referenced her years after the character died in less than favorable terms – Im hardly alone and her almost universal lack of appeal is actually one of the few things most liz and sam fans have historically agreed on.) but Liz is clearly in the video. If we were only “allowed” to “hate” on jason and/or sam since thats the only two people in the header, then how come the anti-sonny,anti-carly stuff is okay with you? And um, not for nothing, but who defines “hate” – I would consider suggesting that sam and jason are together only because frons wants them to be, when there are clearly factors like their story potential, their history and their sizable fan base – I would consider that just as much of a hate kind of assertion as using a nickname. At least I was half joking around. Who made any one of us the decider of what falls in to the category of hate and just acceptable criticism? Log in to Reply soapbaby August 18, 2011 @ EET – I am certainly no judge or juror, just asked you why you were disparaging Liz and Courtney to build up Sam. It was just that simple. I imagine it’s because Sam McCall is no real character outside of being Jason Morgan’s girlfriend. There is no independent character. Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin August 18, 2011 So she isnt a pi and she isnt maxies friend and she isnt alexis’s daughter and she isnt molly and morgan’s sister and she isnt michaels friend and she isnt jasons protector. She isnt an independent character to YOU, but certainly others disagree. ANd I wasnt trash talking courtney or liz to build up sam, I did it because I didnt like either of them. I told you what pushed me over the edge with kung fu barbie (which had nothing to do with sam or jason) and I have long said that my liz hate stems from carly first, zander second and sam third, chronologically. I think jason is too good for either of them, and that is saying a LOT. But if you are just calling people out for “hating” characters not the central issue of the video, then why not ask why people are hating on sonny and carly if thats your big objection.

Log in to Reply JasamForever August 18, 2011 @soapbaby-I stand corrected and do apologize. I reread the comment. There have been issues with negative verbiage against posters, so certain words just raise a red flag with me. Sorry. Log in to Reply soapbaby August 18, 2011 No problem JasamForever – After a few ugly debates over Sam/Liz, blah-blah, I try to avoid those conversations all together. I really don’t think it is necessary to disparage characters to just build-up another. A serious gripe with a character, yes have at it, but just to bash up when there’s no reason seems to turn threads into huge arguments. Log in to Reply Kazy24 August 19, 2011 LOL I would go to the nearest bar and buy a round for everyone in there if they broke up Jason and Sam. Not only that, but the hallelujah chorus would be on repeat in my head everytime I thought about it! That couple does horrible things to my gag reflex. Basically, they are hard to swallow and I have never and will never buy them as a couple and will never see this chemistry people have murmured about either. But *BIG SIGH* I am not so delusional to think that Frons will stop highlighting his pet couple. Yep Sam stopped conning, but she still involves herself in criminal activity doesn’t she? So why would Monica want anything to do with that? Sam hasn’t really stepped that far away from her humble origins as a con, and just because she has attempted to do a few heroic things, doesn’t change that. Liz had three children by three different fathers, I agree that isn’t the best way to go, but it happens doesn’t it? Should we talk to Carly about this as well? She has had three babies by three different men and what about fan favorite Alexis? I do believe she ALSO has three children by three different men? What do we have to say about this topic now? Not so odd in the soap world is it. And I REALLY hope we aren’t pulling the skank card out…should I youtube all of the times where Sam has been a complete mental trainwreck/skank? I am pretty sure it is safe to say that most women(including Liz, Sam, carly etc) in soaps are portrayed as “loose” women. I’m sure there are a few exceptions, but for the most part, they seem to fit right into that mold thanks to the writing. js3557,Ravennite613, and GHvetfan- I’ll buy you a round just because you make such logical and awesome arguments! Log in to Reply soapfan616 August 22, 2011 There’s been too many ludicrous female characters created and other female characters destroyed over the past ten years on GH to argue which is the worst. It’s like arguing if you want to get run over by a truck or bus. Here’s hoping someone can make a decent female character out of the crap Looza Gooza and Phelps created. Log in to Reply NickiMcCall14 August 26, 2011 I really hope he remembers his love for Sam because i almost threw up watching the what if scenes with Liz and Carly today. I could never stomach either one of their characters paired with anyone, much less Jason. Log in to Reply shilo0854 August 30, 2011 I hope Jason buys a clue and question why he would waste time on Sam. These two are not helping all the rating groups keep GH on TV. Sorry but Sam is a waste of energy on this show. Many longtime viewers and non Sam fans I think would like to fast forward thru any more scenes with Sam. Log in to Reply shilo0854 October 4, 2011 Absolutely not liking Jason with Sam. Then the Q’s are brought together to push this couple! Amazing TIIC think we are mindless are willing to follow what they want to push. The fans will make or break saving this soap if there is even a chance. Give us core families and s/l’s. Stop reinventing this dribble. Changes need to happen to move forward but this is just beyond change. They start with good intention than ruin it. Lucky should have stayed with his lass. He was moving on as Liz was with Jason but they decided to blow s/l’s totally away. The ratings are terrible! I want quality GH. Zero Aiden, LL2, Jasam, bring back one of the biggest mistakes to Jason was killing his son to push Jasam and redemption of Sam of her past. I love Steve Burton but he is not anything what he is capable of doing with this current s/l! Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
