It all makes perfect sense really. It was nothing the General Hospital writing team had planned on doing, but to them, and now to the fans, it completely makes sense in regard to Luke Spencer’s (Tony Geary) exit story. However, the lasting impact on resurrecting Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst) and Jason Morgan’s (Billy Miler) son, Jake, will have a lasting impact on the people of Port Charles as a whole.
In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, General Hospital Head Writer, Ron Carlivati explains why they decided to bring little Jake back from the dead. He said, “It really was not something we were planning to do.”
Luke Spencer’s exist story had to be one for the books. Since Luke was the one who actually hit little Jake and caused his “death,” the writing team felt this was the perfect way to make Luke and Laura’s (Genie Francis) adventure to be as memorable as possible, while also leaving a great story for the rest of the town, even after Luke leaves the canvas.With all that is going on with Sam and Jason, Elizabeth and Jason (Jake), and Liz and Nikolas, having Jake be alive will stir the pot for many story lines.
For all the fans that have questioned little Jake’s organ donation, Carlivati explains, “We had to pull out a bag of tricks, and go to our go-to person, Helena Cassadine, for help, and made it work.”
So what does this mean for Elizabeth and Jake Doe? Sam and Jake (Jason)?…
Elizabeth is still hiding Jake’s true identity from him. Knowing that he is actually Jason Morgan, Liz is depriving the man she claims to love of his real wife, Sam (Kelly Monaco), and his son, Danny Morgan. General Hospital rumors speculated that Lucky Spencer (Jonathan Jackson), little Jake’s adoptive father, is on his way to inform Elizabeth of the news regarding their son. Once Liz finds out that Jake, her son with Jason is actually alive, will she finally tell Jake Doe that he is actually Jason? We think so. Judging from Liz’s past behaviors, it isn’t enough right now that Jason has a wife and son out there, but once she finds out THEIR son is alive, her whole tune is likely to change. In our opinion, we predict that Elizabeth will want the real Jason Morgan to get to know their son, little Jake and will ponder her decision to finally come clean, now that she too has a family again with Jason.
