At long last Jason Morgan will return to Port Charles and the love of his life Sam Morgan to hold and raise the son he didn’t even know was his.
Jason will be awaking with a new face as General Hospital welcomes Billy Miller, a three time daytime Emmy Award winner who appeared as Billy Abbot on the Young and the Restless and as Richie Novak on All MY Children.
Unless Jason dreamt what has been happening in Port Charles for the last two years while he was in cryogenic sleep, his face will not be the only change he awakes to. Thanks to the impressive medical treatment of his doctor Robin Scorpio(Kimberly McCullough), Jason may well find his wife, Sam Morgan (Kelly Monaco), in love to Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson). Patrick’s wife Robin paved the way for this possibility when she refused to come home multiple times, lied repeatedly, and told Patrick that she could not save Jason who was now dead. True, Patrick has been keeping the secret for months that Jason was alive, and might be able to be revived, so this could prove to be a problem for any future Patrick and Sam romance, but don’t we really want Sam and Jason back together anyway?
Jason will get to confront his new and improved brother Franco (Roger Howarth), no longer a deranged psychopath now that he has had his tumor removed. Not only is Jason’s former arch enemy no longer a bad guy, but he is living with Jason’s best friend Carly Jacks (Laura Wright).
Professionally Jason’s replacement, Shawn Butler (Sean Blakemore), could object to moving aside. Then again, their boss Sonny Corinthos (Maurince Benard) is in enough trouble that I’m not sure all the kings horses and all the kings men can put things together again.
As much as I like the strong silent, stone cold killer that Steve Burton played as Jason Morgan, I hope Jason’s rise from stasis brings with it a rise in passions that removal of the brain tumor didn’t do for him. Not a return to the nice young man of the days of young Jason Quartermaine, but a passionate, powerful, intelligent Jason who can take charge
