Quote ronsgirl: I don't know the actual link, but it was right after Monica went into the hospital after hitting Sam. Liz was in Jason's office and he asked her if he could tell Monica and her answer was too many people already know and that it wasn't a good idea.
Yes, he does have his own mind, but he made a promise to Elizabeth and he keeps his promises. He yielded to her desires on this matter.
Your answer is a prime example as to exactly why JASON IS A PUNK.
Jason is a GROWN-AZZ MAN. Monica is HIS mother. Jason should have stepped up and been a man and told Elizabeth "no, I don't agree, I am going to tell Monica," and went and told his mother that she had a grandchild.
Liz did not even consult Jason first when she decided to tell Laura that Jake was Jason's, she decided that was the right thing to do for Laura since Laura had stated that she didn't want any more lies in her life. Liz did what she felt was right for someone who had always treated her as a daughter.
Then she informed Jason after the fact.
If Jason was his own man, he would not have made such a promise to Liz he would have went and told Monica anyway.
This Jason IS A P-U-N-K!
