    Flashback In GH History.

    Jason & Michael (ABC)
    Jason takes in Michael as his own.

    As Tracy mentioned to Monica in Monday's episode, Jason accepting Sam's baby (who he falsely thinks is Franco's) as his own isn't a first for the mobster. The first boy he cared for was Michael Corinthos III.

    After Jason Quartermaine's life altering car accident in 1995, he changed his name to Jason Morgan and pushed away everyone from his former life. He moved into a room above Jake's and began sleeping with Carly Roberts. He started falling in love with Robin Scorpio and ended his dalliance with Carly, but as everyone who watches "GH" knows, the two remained close friends.

    Upon sleeping with A.J., Carly became pregnant, but tried to pass the baby off as Jason's. Jason knew he wasn't the father, but agreed to keep up the ruse so A.J. and the Qs wouldn't get their hands on her son. In 1997, Carly gave birth, but suffered from postpartum depression. She took off, leaving Jason to care for Michael on his own.

    Jason named the boy after Sonny, whose given name is Michael, and developed an early bond with the boy. Robin initially helped Jason, but never agreed with the decision to keep A.J. in the dark.

    Carly returned to Port Charles and moved in with Jason, Robin and Michael. Carly and Robin butted heads on a regular basis. Deepening Carly's hate for her, Robin eventually told A.J. the truth and left town.

    Jason remained a father figure to Michael until he was shot, pushed into the water and presumed dead. Like he did with Michael, Jason was prepared to raise little Daniel as his own, despite thinking Franco was the biological father. There's no doubt he would have been a great dad, but it leads one to wonder how he would have reacted had he known Danny was truly his own flesh and blood. Maybe one day Jason will return from the presumed dead to show us.

    Do you remember when Jason cared for baby Michael? Share your thoughts on the storyline below.

    Jason is not dead! He's going to be presumed dead until the day he decides he wants to return to general hospital. I'm a big fan of his as well and not happy that he didn't get to be happy w Sam and Danny n find out he is his son but he will when he returns some day! He wanted to spend more time w his family and do other things in his life outside of gh. Now how can u blame him for that? How can you blame gh directors for that? You can't!! It's his own choice and I support him and am happy for him to live his life for awhile! He'll be back some day I'm sure of it but for now! May God bless him and his family and hope all is good for him!!
    As for Sean Kanan returning to gh I think it's AJ back from the dead!! Not sure what he's gonna be set up to do but it will be interesting. For awhile I always thought/hoped he would replace Jason but I don't think that so much anymore. I'm just excited to see what's next for PC!! I don't know y you all say you won't watch anymore cause Jason is gone. Come on there are do many more great people in this show that make it GH and make it interesting! You're not a true GH fan if u quit after one guy leaves! I live what they have done w the show, bringing OLTL characters in. Awesome thinking!! I love Todd...he's hilarious. And Starr...she's perfect for Michael. Keep up the good work and always #1 gh fan!!! Love it! Sorry this is so long but I had a lot to say!!

    I was glad to see that GH left the door open for Jason to return, he has left the show 4 other times, and always returned, I am hoping this is the case now, I knew the show would go a little light and whimsicle when they hired the writer from One Life to Live last year. All these storylines except from the boring mob, are dublicates of what happened on OLTL from the babyswitching to hiding paternity, and so forth. I hope they do not put A.J. with Sam I will be very dissapointed, because Jason raised Micheal so he will raise Jason's son.

    I have always loved this picture every since I saw it a few years ago. I liked this summary of Jason's love for children and totally agree that he would have been an excellant Dad to baby Daniel Edward Morgan.
    I will really miss the character of Jason. He was the reason why I started watching GH about 4-5 years ago. Then over time I learned to like many of the other characters on GH---I hope that if Steve Burton ever brings Jason back to GH--that the writers, etc. keep his wonderful character intact as I have always appreciated Jason's strong, loyal, dependable, loving ways---
