General Hospital Spoilers: Jake (Jason) Dreams of His Wife, Sam Morgan

Fans are about to lose their minds when it comes to the Jake Doe, Jason and Sam (Kelly Monaco) story line. Die hard JaSam fans just want the reunion sooner rather than later. Sam and Jason have been considered one of Daytime TV’s ultimate super couples. This relationship which is just short of an entire decade has had a huge fan following since the beginning. Every since Jason took Sam in while pregnant with Sonny’s baby, these two were meant to be. They have been there for each other through it all, the good, the bad, the unthinkable. This couple possesses passion, love, selflessness, humor… together they make one bad ass mob team, Jason the enforcer and Sam his leading lady, P.I.

Ever since Steve Burton left General Hospital and Jason Morgan “died,” true Jason and Sam fans have not been completely content with the love interests that were introduced for Sm Morgan. Some jumped on the Silas (Michael Easton) and Sam bandwagon, and there is no doubt that  Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sam make an adorably hot couple. But the fact remains, that Jason and Sam have YEARS of history, and no other man compares when it comes to being a match for fair Samantha.

Now that Billy Miller has taken on the role of Jason Morgan (Jake Doe for now), fans have been waiting in anticipation for him to regain his memory, stop messing around with Liz (Rebecca Herbst), and realize that Sam and Danny are his family. Ric Lansing (Rick Hearst) just put a huge wrench in things after he hired a con artist, Hayden (Rebecca Budig) to pose as Jake’s long lost wife, in an attempt to get him away from Elizabeth Webber. Thus, setting back the reunion for Jason and Sam even further.

Recent General Hospital spoilers reveal that Jake will have a dream about Sam, which will include flashbacks of their life together. GH rumors have been speculating that these flashbacks will ultimately lead to Jake discovering that Sam is his wife.

Are you ready for Jason to finally remember who he is and who he loves? Leave a comment and let us know if you are excited for Jason and Sam to be a family again with their son, Danny.

Tristan Rogers Entertains the Idea of Returning to General Hospital

This past year, ABC’s General Hospital and CBS’ The Young and the Restless seem to be having fun playing a good game of actor swap. From Maura West to Steve Burton, 2014 was full of exchanging stars from one soap to the other.

Tristan Rogers is yet another daytime star that has bounced from Y&R to GH from time to time. Although the actor, and GH legendary character Robert Scorpio is currently away from GH as he plays Colin on Y&R, there is hope that he will be able to work out a deal that allows him to take part in both daytime dramas. Rogers just signed on with The Young and the Restless for another year, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that he cannot appear on General Hospital as Robert Scorpio.

Rogers expressed via Twitter that the issue regarding being able to appear on GH while still under contract with Y&R has yet to be resolved. That being said, it is highly possible that the two networks are ironing out an agreement to let Tristan Rogers return to General Hospital while he is also playing Colin on Y&R.

Rogers’ character, Robert Scorpio would fit perfectly into current story lines over in Port Charles. The identity of Fluke is about to be revealed, which Luke and Robert have a long history with each other. Also, Robin, Robert’s daughter, is still being held by Helena Cassadine. General Hospital rumors have indicated the return of Robin Scorpio in the near future. What better timing for dear old dad to return as well, right?

Let us know if you’d be excited to see Tristan Rogers reprise his role as Robert Scorpio on General Hospital. Comment below!

 

Kelly Monaco Interview: “I’m Glad They Put Me In Jason’s Arms”

Kelly has played the beautiful, strong, sensitive woman, Samantha McCall since 2003. Immediately after debuting as the scuba diving bad-ass con-artist, she won the hearts of GH fans everywhere. Sam is one tough cookie with a whole lot heart. Sam’s epic love story with Jason Morgan (then Steve Burton) will live on forever.

In this must-read ‘On Air Soaps with Michael Fairman’ interview with Kelly Monaco, Kelly tells Michael and the fans all about working with Steve Burton, Jason Thompson, and Billy Miller.

When Kelly was asked by Michael Fairman about “Samtrick” which is the ship name for Sam and Patrick as a couple, Kelly had many good things to say about this pairing on and off screen. Monaco explains to Michael that she and Jason Thompson have been fighting for a Patrick and Sam pairing for a very long time. They two are great friends outside of the workplace and have a real trust and bond between the two of them. Michael Fairman asked Kelly:

MICHAEL:

Let’s talk about Samtrick.  When they said we are going to pair you with Jason Thompson and try to broach a romance between Patrick and Sam, once they had established their friendship, what were your thoughts on that?   Were you at all worried it wouldn’t play?

Samtrick fans will love her heartwarming response…

KELLY:

“Jason and I have been fighting for that for a long time, since Steve Burton left, basically.  We were in New York like a year and half ago, and we went up to Ron Carlivati’s (head writer, GH) office and the writers over at General Hospital.  We both sat there and we’re like “Well?”  And they said, “No, not yet.  You guys are friends,” meaning, of course, our characters on the show we’re friends.  Jason and I were like, “Just try it!”  And lo and behold, I don’t know when they decided, but here is it is, and I love it.  Jason Thompson is my friend in real life, and he’s my family.  So it’s really great working with him – it’s fresh and new, and we hadn’t had the opportunity to interact like that on-screen before.  There is a trust there that you can make out on-screen, or whatever.  I am not taking anything away from Michael Easton.  I have known him for 15 years, but if they were going to shift me and put me somewhere, I am glad they put me in Jason’s arms.”

We want to know, what are your thoughts about Sam and Patrick as a new hot couple? Does Sam belong with Jason, or is the time finally right to move on with someone else? Are you #TeamJaSam or #TeamSamtrick?

JaSam Reunion in the Works

 Jason Morgan and Samantha McCall because one of the biggest daytime super couples of the early 2000s. Their love story was full of romance, drama, action, twists and turns, humor, happiness, loss, and everything that make a couple a “Super Couple.” Social media took this couple’s love story by storm and soon enough, every fanfiction all pointed to one thing… JaSam is endgame. JaSam became the ship name for Jason and Sam and is now used when referring to the epic pair.

Before and after they finally got married, Jason and Sam had been through the best of times along with the absolute worst. Jason was there for Sam when she lost her baby Lila, Sam was there for Jason when his health was taking a turn for the worse, and the couple was even terrorized by psycho artist, Franco, just to name a few.

Sam finally got pregnant but it was far from a dream pregnancy. Since being stalked and terrorized by Franco, Jason and Sam were led to believe that Sam’s baby was a product of rape and not Jason’s child. After Jason “died” Sam found out that baby Danny was indeed Jason’s. Since Sam believes Jason to be dead, she has no choice but the live with the fact that Jason never got to know that they boy they both love, Danny, was actually his son and not Franco’s.

We all know that Jason is far from dead. He is alive and well and under Helena’s spell. Although he is walking among the residents of Port Charles, no one knows, not even “Jake” himself, that he is Jason Morgan, husband to Sam, father to Danny. In recent episodes, Jake is having memories and flashbacks of his old life and the people in it. This week on General Hospital, Jason was ordered to kill Sam by Helena Cassadine. While in Sam’s penthouse, his memory allowed him to see Robin and have flashbakcs of putting an engagement ring on Sam.

It’s pretty obvious that Jake is getting closer to discovering his own true identity. As Jason’s flashbacks bring him closer to finding out the truth, Sam may not be too far behind. I mean really, how can she not know that the man she has had conversations with is actually her husband. Will Sam figure out Jake is really Jason before he does?

True JaSam fans cannot even contain their excitement as they sit back and wait for Jason and Sam to have their epic reunion. Fear not, the reveal is inevitable. General Hospital spoilers indicate that Jason will be remembering who is is very soon.

Billy Miller Discusses His Own Spin on Jason Morgan

General Hospital newcomer, Billy Miller explains his plans for the character of Jason Morgan. Billy Miller had some extremely large shoes to fill by taking on this role after Steve Burton created the Jason Morgan persona for over 20 years. Fans have survived many recasts of their favorite beloved characters throughout the years. The soap industry is known for their ins and outs, and the potential of characters being recast. This is nothing new, yet the news of Steve Burton leaving General Hospital to go to The Young and the Restless hit fans harder than any other recast in General Hospital history. The recast process seemed to take forever, and the powers that be did a fantastic job of throwing everyone off. With the on again off again rumors of Billy Miller replacing Steve Burton, fans were kept in the dark on if and when this big change was going to happen. When the news was finally confirmed, it stirred up all sorts of mixed emotions among the fan bases. Die hard Steve Burton fans were angry, Billy Miller fans were ecstatic that they would be able to see their favorite actor on screen again, and many people just wanted to give Billy a chance and then make a decision on whether or not he could be the new Jason Morgan.

Billy Miller is a hit with the fans. He is living up to the legend of Jason Morgan and his chemistry with Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth Webber) is undeniable. Obviously, any recast is going to have minor and major differences from the previous actor who played the part. It is important to realize that in these situations, we will never get an exact replica. It’s important to welcome these changes with open arms, and appreciate the work that the actor is doing in order to entertain the fans. Billy Miller discusses the differences he is creating in this new Jason, aka Jake. In a recent interview, Miller said, “It would be ridiculous for me to mimic (the way Burton played him).” Miller states that this new Jason is a bit brighter, he smiles more, and throws in jokes to lighten the mood. He continued to explain, “It’s more fun in this genre whenever you can add some lightness to it or make it funny. You don’t get a lot of room for that so I usually look for it. It’s a scary position for this guy who is so lost and doesn’t know who he is, so you match that with a little bit of humor.”

Billy Miller is looking forward to when Jason finally comes in contact with his past. His past that includes his old lifestyle. His job. Miller looks forward to working with legends such as Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos), Roger Howarth (Franco), and Tony Geary (Luke Spencer). In regard to working with Geary, Miller says, “I can’t wait for that acting class.”
