General Hospital Recaps: Remember When? Island Edition

Throughout the years of this pleasantly long soap life, General Hospital has made history time and time again with it’s iconic storylines. Due to our nation’s current situation with the Covid-19 Pandemic, those creative and legendary stories won’t be able to tell a new story as of now, or even in the near future. Although this won’t be forever, it is still difficult for the cast, crew, and fans alike to wrap our heads around the reality of it all. While we sit and wait for our world as we know it to go back to normal, we can reflect on the happy and fond memories we have from our favorite Daytime Drama.

As fashion trends and TV show reboots from the 1990s have begun to resurface, it seems fitting to put focus on one very memorable General Hospital storyline from the 1990s. In the early 1990s I personally, got sucked in and swept away when I started watching GH with my mom and sister and the story that was front and center revolved around Jason Quartermaine- now Jason Morgan- (Steve Burton), Jagger Cates (Antonio Sabato Jr.), and Karen Wexler (Cari Shayne).

Romance, drama, and adventure followed these three wherever they went- even on a deserted island! After being shipwrecked, they were stranded on a deserted island, making things very awkward for everyone involved since Jagger and Karen were a couple, Jason was annoyed, and the two men weren’t too keen on each other. This love triangle was secondary to that of Jagger, Karen, and Brenda Barrett (Vanessa Marcil), but developed as Jason Quartermaine was basically a third wheel when he, Jagger, and Karen were stuck on a deserted island.

Tension was thick between Jason and Jagger, and since Karen was the reason, there was tension and awkwardness all around. In one climatic scene, Jagger walked up as Jason embraced Karen from behind. Of course, Jagger was angry and jealous, but it wasn’t what it looked liked. Jason was comforting Karen after being by the attempted rape. Jason Morgan has always been a savior to women. He is a natural protector, quick thinker, and a fighter for what’s right. Jason Quartermaine never lost that part of himself, even after the car accident with his brother AJ (Sean Kanan), leading him to change his name from Quartermaine to another family name, Morgan.

At some point, Jason and Jagger had to put their pride and differences aside in order to work together to survive. Jagger was the muscle, while Jason was both the brains of the operation along with being strong and resourceful. Karen was resourceful in her own right, but definitely played the role of damsel in distress very well.

Do you remember Jason Quartermaine before he became Jason Morgan? Take a look at the clip below of young Jason, Jagger, and Karen, while stuck on the island in the early 1990s. For me personally, this is where it all began… welcome to the 90s!

Kimberly McCullough Returns

The last anyone has heard from Robin Scorpio Drake is when she lead her loved ones to believe she was moving to Paris by her own desire, even though we the audience know that Helena (Constance Towers) is forcing her to stay away from Port Charles. Robin and Patrick have since divorced, and Patrick (Jason Thompson) has moved on with Sam Morgan (Kelly Monaco).

The latest General Hospital rumors indicate that Robin will be headed back to Port Charles just in time for the Annual Nurses Ball event. This year, the Nurses Ball is to honor the memory of Robin’s first true love, Stone Cates (Michael Sutton). Brother to Jagger Cates (Antonio Sabato Jr.), and good friend of Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard), Stone meant a lot to the people of Port Charles.

Robin’s in and out has ruffled a few feather’s with fans, the uncertainty of this character’s future is unsettling to some. However, Robin is an iconic character, and the actress who portrays her is well respected by fans and TPTB at GH alike. As long as Kimberly McCullough wants to keep making appearances on General Hospital, it is safe to say that she will always have a home there.

It is uncertain how long Robin’s return will last this time around, perhaps long enough to tie of a few loose ends, or maybe even to create more.

General Hospital Blog will keep fans updated on the latest General Hospital spoilers, news, and any confirmation regarding the return of Kimberly McCullough as Robin.

Antonio Sabato Jr. back to GH as Jagger Cates?

How would you feel if Jagger came back? HOTNESS! I know I would love to see this happen. Jagger is where it all began for me. It all started when I was about 11 years old and my Mom and Sister watched GH everyday. My (older) sister was in LOVE with Jagger. We were all hooked. My favorite scenes were with Jagger Cates, Karen Wexler, and Jason Quartermaine (Morgan) on the island! Throw Brenda and Robin in the mix and it GH became my soap addiction. Form 1992-1995 Antonio Sabato Jr. graced Port Charles with his presence as Jagger Cates and in 2008 he made a brief return in the Soapnet GH spinoff, General Hospital: Night Shift. It was nice to have him in PC once again and it would be REALLY nice if they could make this happen for us again. Throught the years the Calvin Klein underwear model has been in many well known productions such as Melrose Place, Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Ally McBeal, and more. If you would love to see Antonio back on GH as Jagger then for the love of General Hospital do what the man asks and Retweet his tweet to Frank Valentini! Check it out below!
