Although they are no longer co-workers in show biz, they are taking their colleague-ship in an entirely new direction.

Jackson and Burton have announced that they, along with third co-owner, restaurateur, Richard Shannon will open a Tennessee Smokehouse. The venue has been described as “a family-friendly, world class,” restaurant and concert venue.

At Jack and Jameson’s Smoke House, expect to indulge in barbecue and burgers, and will have 15-20 local brews on tap.

General Hospital’s Emotional Goodbye

EmmacryingWhen it comes to tear jerking story lines, yesterday’s episode should be ranked as one of the top for being an extremely sad goodbye. Emotions were running high as Sam and Patrick decided to end their relationship and engagement. However, this time, the breakup didn’t just involve two adults. Little Emma, played by the remarkable Brooklyn Silzer, displayed phenomenal talent in Thursday’s episode of General Hospital. Her pain was so real, it could be felt even by those who could never relate to a heart wrenching goodbye. Emma is struggling so hard with the loss of her mother Robin, although she is alive, Emma has been lead to believe that Robin is choosing to live without her. She has had high hopes for finding a mother figure in Sabrina (Teresa Castillo) and now in Sam (Kelly Monaco), and this break up between Patrick and Sam has pushed Emma to her breaking point. After Sam left, Emma begged and pleaded to her dad, crying, “no more falling in love, no more girlfriends, I need mommy (Kimberly McCullough)!”

Jason Thompson and Kelly Monaco were nothing short of Emmy worthy in their performance. This story is a clear reflection of the real life goodbye the cast and crew have experienced as Jason Thompson taped his final episode of General Hospital last week. Jason Thompson has ended his 10 year run as the undeniably gorgeous, Dr. Patrick Drake, son of legendary Dr. Noah Drake, played by Rick Springfield. It has been confirmed that Jason Thompson has moved on to The Young and the Restless, and will be joining fellow ex-GH cast mate, Steve Burton (Jason Morgan).

It’s difficult to say what will happen next with this story. Odds are, they are gearing toward Emma getting her wish, and having Robin return to Port Charles, but no one knows just how long that will last.

Watch General Hospital M-F at 2PM Eastern/Standard to find out what’s to come at this emotional time for little Emma Drake and her Dad, Patrick.

 

Liz and Jake’s Wedding Disaster

LiasonproposeOne of the most controversial fan base wars has just taken the drama to an entirely new level. The Liason vs. JaSam wars date back to practically a decade, and it doesn’t look like there will be an end to all the chaos any time soon. General Hospital fans have been waiting for what seems like forever for the big Jason Morgan reveal. Ever since Billy Miller took over the role of Jason Morgan, and stepped into Steve Burton’s shoes, true Jason and Sam fans have been waiting (im)patiently for their great love to be reunited. All the while, Elizabeth and Jason fans have been in their glory during the current story line involving the love between Jake Doe (Jason) and Liz.

We all know that Elizabeth and Nikolas are keeping an enormous secret from the rest of Port Charles. Aside from Laura and Lucky Spencer, they have told no one of Jake’s true identity. Helena knows that Jake is really Jason because she is the reason Jason “died” in the first place. Hayden Barnes is well aware of Jake’s true identity, but since she is having trouble with her memory after waking up from a coma, the threat she poses has been put on the back burner. Nikolas however, isn’t taking any chances, and he has proposed to Hayden, that she live at Wyndemere.

This story line just crossed a new level of drama, as Jake asked Elizabeth to marry him. Unsure of what to do, Elizabeth turned to God for a sign. Although she knows Jake really is married to Sam, and Sam walked into the chapel as Liz was asking for a sign from above, she still, despite everything she knows about Jake and his loved ones, told him yes to marriage.

In General Hospital spoilers and news, recently GH’s Head Writer, Ron Carlivati was let go and replaced by two co-writers, Jean Passanante and Shelly Altman. Currently, the show is still airing episodes written by Carlivati, but soon enough, that will all change.┬áIt goes without saying that this wedding will ultimately end in disaster, if Liz and Jake even make it to the altar. General Hospital rumors have been speculating, that the big Jason reveal is going to happen sooner rather than later. The current changes with the GH writing team gives fans hope that this story will be moving along more quickly now, and that Jake will soon find out he is Jason Morgan. More importantly, Sam and Jason will be reunited as husband and wife. For the time being, Liason fans are enjoying the ride, however, Jason and Sam will inevitably be reunited. That will make for one disastrous wedding indeed.

How will it all go down? Give us your thoughts and theories revolving around Liz and Jake’s demise, in preparation for the JaSam reunion. Will they make it down the aisle before Sam finds out that Jason is alive, and Elizabeth is marrying her husband and the father of her son, Danny?
