Who is The Father of Sam’s Baby on GH?


There are literally no words to describe drivel like the “Is Franco the Father of Sam’s Baby?” storyline on General Hospital. That the ABC soap is actually promoting it as something fans would or should want to tune in for says even more.

    And the Idiots in charge wonder why they are losing viewers???? This soap used to be must see TV…now it is just the opposite. Get rid of this Franco crap (it/he never impressed me at all) and try telling stories about people we really care about! Wow…that is an interesting concept!

    Whether we eventually learned that Franco did or didn’t rape Sam, daytime soaps have too often dealt very callously with the issue of rape. It’s sad that this is still happening in 2012. Ironically, I thought GENERAL HOSPITAL did well in their treatment of Michael being raped in prison and his intense struggles afterward (which continue). But the storyline focusing on Sam–was she or wasn’t she raped, is Franco her baby’s father–that’s horrendous and unacceptable.

    I suspect that the only reason that Michael’s rape was handled with more sensitivity and decency is because Michael is male. If he were female, he almost certainly would’ve been pregnant and it would’ve degenerated into something like this.

    To call this drivel is an insult to drivel. This is stomach-turning, bottom of the barrel, maggot infested garbage produced by people who haven’t a clue what good soap should be.

    It’s fitting that this may be one of the last “promos” for JFP produced crap. It still blows my mind that actors sing her praises. I haven’t read one comment from any fan who has one good thing to say about any of the show’s she has produced (well, killed is a better term).

    I might tune back in when I get a little better feel for where the so called wonder-boys of soap are taking this show. Until then, I’ll remember GH when it meant something. When it could be fun and sad and heart-warming all in one episode…

    I don’t really care. I just want to know who she will pick for a nanny – an insane baby-snatching woman or a thug from the park armed with a gun? This chick should not be a parent.

    KeMo looks horrible in that photo. As for the big question, who cares? Franco isn’t really even on the show and we don’t know if she was actually raped by him. They need to dump this storyline fast – it’s unbelievably bad.

    Good lord I thought emilys rape and her husband cheating on her due to intimacy issues was poorly done, This wtd drivel with Franco, Sams alleged rapist, like the audience might be rooting for Franco, makes that story look sensitive and well done

    except mikey didn’t get counseling his uncle’s con hooker gf hired a strooker for him, what every teenage rape victim needs, but this is the woman who told emily who was raped by a look alike of her husband to just get back on the horse and have sex w/the man that looked like her rapist.

    and skank never went to the dr. so she could have some disease if she was even raped which she never bothered to find out. and this woman who threatened to abort sonny’s baby numerous times just to get her way didn’t feel the need to at least go get the morning after pill. and you are going to tell me jason couldn’t take skank to a mobbie dr to chk to see if she actually had been raped and to chk for AIDS or any std that a psycho like franco could have.

    plus i don’t feel sorry for her for franco playing w/her head, this is a woman who has used sex to get back at numerous people and played w/their heads, and also married 5 men for money and chased after the richest guys in pc and slept with all of them, she probably would have tried for nik if he wasn’t her “cousin”.

    and maybe they should have used a different character for this storyline if they had to have another “rape” story b/c skank is just not sympathetic and the actress isn’t either or a strong enough actress.

    I have been watching GH for years and I am so tired of the lack of romance on this show over the last few years. Fans had to wait so long for Jason and Sam to get together and now this. Steve Burton is a wonderful actor, please let him do something besides be angry and have brain problems every 5 minutes. If Franco turns out to be the father I think I am done watching GH.

    Franco was a mistake from the beginning. Please let this storyline go. It is awful. The Actors deserve more than you are giving them to do. With some popular characters leaving on their own, you need to balance the scripts with positive as well as Robin dying of aids.

    I don’t care if Sam is or isn’t pregnant. I have a hard time caring if she was or wasn’t raped. Sam is very unlikable and terribly difficult to feel sorry for. Having said that, I don’t wish rape on my worst enemy. I hate that this show is playing with rape to try to make Sam a victim and likable. If they are not going to treat rape with respect and they are not going to treat their viewers who many could be rape survivors with respect, I don’t care if it gets cancelled. I don’t in any way shape or form believe that rape victims have to be “good” people for rape to have been respectfully handled. I just hate that Jason is the victim here. I hate that Franco is the rapist because this show always goes for “cool” points with having him on and it leaves a really icky taste for me. It seems like they are going with rape as a “cool” plot. That sucks big time. Sam has been involved with rape plots before with Emily and Michael and her advice has always sucked. Will she handle the situation the same way she advised Emily and Michael to? Why should we care about her after she couldn’t bother to make sure she gave out good advice? The whole thing makes me rethink why I have stuck with this show for so long. They certainly don’t care about the viewers feelings. I am really not liking this at all. My feelings on this topic are all over the place. ABC and GH are really letting me down. I am not making any sense so I am just not going to watch.

    This particular “villain” outlived his “usefulness” after the first go-around. And at that time, they actually had him interacting with other characters outside of Jason when he was a “novel idea”. Now, it’s beyond sad. It’s putrid. Almost on a par with the Scrubs “tainted blood” fiasco. Jasam isn’t a pairing that fires my imagination but neither do I want to see them (or their portrayers), having to tell a story that, from what I’ve read here and other places isn’t winning any raves.(Save for some decent acting, especially in the early stages, from KM who I’ve grown to appreciate.) If it came out that either she or SBu wanted to leave as a result of this poorly thought out monstrosity, I wouldn’t blame them. They deserve better. That goes for the rest of the show, as well. But hey, what do I know?… 0:)

    The character of Sam sucks and always has….She was crammed down our throats since when she came on like 2003? We DON’T CARE if she got pregnant from an alien from V and she pops out a lizard!

    Visitor101,you hit the nail right on the head,Pal. That has been my opinion the whole way through this ‘craptastic storm’of Franco b.s. Franco has had the ‘hots’ for JM this whole time. He wanted to’be with ‘JM not SM. No way did Franco get’up to business ‘with Sam. Don’t believe he would be capable. Besides the ‘evil’ lies in tormenting SM and especially JM. Aside from the need to know the legal father of Sam’s baby,the ‘imagined rape’ has caused real suffering and no amount of time or retelling will remove their suffering.Finding out Franco was lying does nothing to remove the mental torment. The good news is that Sam and JM will have their baby(fingers crossed) but they will always have the awful memories of what should have been a happy honeymoon. In the end Franco wins by remaining in Sam & JM thoughts. I hope they find Franco dead ‘off screen’ so he will be out of the storyline ,completely.

    Why do all of you complainers even watch GH anymore. I think you just like to bitch and moan. There is lots to watch on other channels .Find something else to watch and then you have lots of free time where you don’t have to constantly put down all of the actors. KM is an excellent actress.(It’s her ‘whispery’ voice that could use some help). SB is an excellent actor ,also. Granted ,the storylines haven’t been creative or enjoyable of late but that goes with the genre. FF through the crap you don’t like,that’s what I do. There are lots of actors and charactors I don’t like (Kim McC for one) but I just ff through her stuff. I don’t understand why the writers and EP have killed so much of what was upbeat and ‘normal’ about GH. It’s just probably the networks way of driving off viewers so there is less disagreement when they ‘kill’GH in the spring.
    I’m a long time viewer of GH and hate the negative stuff, too. But it will be easier to see GH’s demise when the ‘stuff on the page’ isn’t comparable to the way Gh used to be in it’s heyday.

    Of course the baby is going to be Jason’s..and I have to agree with some of the comments..this is a crazy and drawn out storyline..there is a different way that JaSam could have become pregnant..but because it is GH and I am a huge JaSam fan I will continue to watch..I have been watching since I was 8 and I am 29 now..and I love GH…whether or not it stays on the air I will wath til ABC decides what to do..hopefully this new team of writers will be able to give all the actors some fresh, new storylines!!

    This is just further evidence of the absolute idiocy going on at ABC. When GH goes off the air I will no longer be watching the network, not even the local affiliate. ABC doesn’t give a tinker’s damn about the daytime viewers so why should I give them my attention?

    I am so glad that Jason is the baby daddy. I just pray they dont try and do some franco was Jasons twin crap so that the paternity is in the air again if they do I am done. I hated the Fraco storyline even though it finally gave Sam and Jason a baby. It was ridiculous. Serial murders holding art gallery showings in what world would that happen? His whole plot was preposterous stealing Aiden, and then having pics of jason as a baby makes me think that GH is going to do the unthinkable and try and make Franco Jasons long lost twin I pray it doesnt because that would be a huge mistake.
