    Goodbyes And New Beginnings.

    Thursday, July 21 2011
    Brenda and Jax leave town, while Jason proposes to Sam.

    At the house, Carly orders Brenda to make good on her promise to stand by Sonny for better or worse. Brenda responds that she hates her. Carly leaves, as Brenda begs Sonny to say he's sorry and to admit he made a mistake. Sonny wonders if that would be enough for her to take him back and move to California with him. She wonders if he means it. She says it would be perfect, but Sonny knows it would be a lie because his power base is in Port Charles. It scares him how much he wants power. She wonders if he wants it more than love. He responds that love doesn't last – it gets taken away, dies or walks away when there's too much pain. Power is something he understands and can hold on to. He won't give that up for anybody. Brenda notes, "Not even me." Sonny doesn't think he can love her the way she wants. Brenda wants him to be the man she has carried in her heart her whole life. Sonny tells her that man never existed. He was a part he played so he could have her. He's sorry for that. Through tears she tells him she's glad this is who he really is so she can leave and protect her son. As she gives him her rings back, he tells her to find a man who can give her what she needs. But no matter where she is, he will always love her. Brenda starts to sob and walks out. Sonny sits in his chair and cries. Carly returns and Sonny explains that Brenda loved him in a way that she wanted him to be, but once they got married she saw things she didn’t see before. Carly thinks it sounds hypocritical, but Sonny knows she did what she felt was right. Carly is sorry to see Sonny like this. He says he will always love Brenda, but he will never regret helping Carly get Josslyn back.

    Jax drops by the house on his way out of town to say goodbye to Josslyn. He talks with Morgan and tells him he enjoyed watching him grow up and being a part of his life. He tells his stepson he will miss him and Morgan tears up as he says the same. Michael brings Josslyn out and Jax says goodbye to his daughter and asks the boys to look out for Joss and Carly. Once Jax is gone, Carly returns home and learns that Jax left. She loves Jax and hates how things turned out, but as long as she has her kids she can handle anything.

    Robin sits with Brenda as she packs in her hotel room. They friends hug goodbye and Brenda asks Robin to give Sonny a letter. After Robin leaves, Jax drops in to say goodbye to Brenda. She tells him she's leaving town as well. Jax can't believe she left Sonny, but he's happy for her. He asks if he can help with her travel arrangements.

    Brenda and Alec join Jax on his jet to Rome. Jax tells Brenda to throw a coin in the fountain for him. She suggests he stay long enough to do it himself.

    Sonny makes a call and learns that Brenda left with Jax on his plane. He angrily instructs the person to get his plane ready because he's leaving.

    Alexis tells Sam at the lake house that despite her misgivings about Jason's line of work, she knows there is no life without risks. Sam feels emotionally safe with Jason because he is loyal and accepts her for who she is. Alexis admits she is a little envious and gives Sam her blessing. Kristina walks in and squeals in delight over the news.

    Sam meets Jason on the rooftop. Jason says he learned from Jake's death not to take time or love for granted again. He takes her hands and says he loves her and would be honored to spend the rest of his life with her. He asks her to marry him. Sam never understood the meaning of the word love until she met him, but she doesn't need to be married. She is already happy because he lets her know she matters in a million different little ways. She doesn’t care about anything but being with him. He assures her she has him for the rest of his life, but if it's okay with her, he'd still like to get married. She tells him she will absolutely marry him. He kisses her and then tells her about the ring Maxie lost. He says he found a substitute, which isn't a very good one. He pulls out a lug nut, or a washer, or something like that, and she asks him to put it on her finger. He assures her it's just until they pick out the ring she wants. Sam already has everything she wants.

    Sam and Jason looked so cute. They have the best couples on General Hospital. I love my Robin and Patrick, now I can add Jason and Sam. I hope Jason realizes that his mother-in-law is the District Attorney. He better keep his nose clean.

    Brenda said she didn't know who Sonny was. Fool, you knew exactly who he was and married him anyway. You are nothing but a jealous shrew. If it wasn't for Sonny, you would have been raising the wrong child. I have one last wish, may the plane you and Jax are flying in fly right into the Bermuda Triangle. So we never have to see your face again.

    I hated seeing my Sonny cry, but this was a happy day for me. PS.... Now that you have some free time Brenda, buy some blouses with sleeves that fit. Oh, one more thing, I would have kept the ring.

    Bye Jax, Bye Brenda! I'll miss Jax most, but I always liked Brenda.

    I can't stand that shrew that is Carly, but her, Alexis, Liz, Olivia and in fact most of the women on the ABC soaps have THE BEST HAIR! Natalie, Jessica, Blair, Liza on AMC, Kendall, Marissa, Bianca....all of them. I like CBS soaps, but sometimes the very beautiful actresses over there look like they combed their hair with a the dark.

    I can't stand Sonny and I think he looks best crying. I hope somebody, ANYBODY makes the thug cry some more. Cry on your knees B-tch!

    Jason and Sam are like watching mold move up a wall. It's a slow, slow process.

    Jax is a putz. He would rather cut and run than stick it out and spend the time with his daughter he was so crazed to have before.

    Brenda is confusing me...this should have been written differently. We all knew she wasn't going to stay but to give her amnesia about what Sonny does is just crazy. She hates Carly, the same woman that put herself on the line while her daughter was sick for the sake of Brenda having her child to raise. Talk about ungrateful.

    Cowboys Fan – Alexis had to resign as DA after the business with running Keifer down, and has been working with Diane ever since.

    Writer's thanks for letting Jason and sam come together as a married couple, Maxie may have found that ring and put it away for herself. The ring was so beautiful liked today's story a whole lot. Please let Sam be able to have a baby and may it be twin's Sam and Jason would make such wonderful parent's. What happened to Molly while all this was going on we missed not seeing her today. Outstanding show it really did rock.

    Writer's i hated to see Sonny cry i was glad that Carly came over to talk with him. How could Brenda do this to our guy how sad when he started to cry i wanted to kick Brenda's butt.

    Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! I am in JaSam heaven! Jason is so adorable when he's nervous you'd never believe that he has done this before with Sam. Jason, Sam and Maxie have been a joy to watch, between yesterday and today's scenes, they are absolutely fabulous. And thank goodness that Sam's response didn't drag all the way out to next week. Today's episode is just a reminder of why I love this couple. I cannot wait for the wedding, hopefully it will be a very brief engagement and the wedding will be done on a beach with only close friends and family in attendance.

    The Jax scenes with Morgan are heartbreaking. I know that Jax has been a much hated character for the way he has been behaving lately, but I feel more for the actor than the character now because I truly believe that Ingo didn't have to be fired or if he really had to go, they could have given him a more dignified send-off. I don't know anyone who watches the show, fan of Jax’s or not, who would actually believe that he would walk away from his only biological child. But whatever, GH has an awful reputation of making characters that are leaving the show so unlikable that by their last day, viewers are actually cheering. GH does not know how to give an actor especially a veteran a proper send off and that is a travesty. I will miss Jax, yes, I know that he became quite insufferable, but on this point, I firmly believe that it was solely the fault of the writers. Such is the same for Brenda, her comeback was even more pointless than why Skye returned last year. In fact, the outcome created more harm than good. Now if in a few years time VMG decides to return, people will be rolling their eyes and groaning instead of being excited. However, as much as I cannot stomach Brenda, I wish the actress the very best.

    ENAD, OMG, I second your EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEs. This was truly an amazing day for JaSam fans. I'm so happy right now I could burst. I agree, if Sam had dragged that out any longer, I would've had to jump in and take her place. Jason is such a handsome, but more so when he's nervous. I wish they would dress him in colors more. Jason giving her that, I think a wheel nut, was a hoot. But sorry to say, with all the money that Jason has, he definitely could have buy her the same ring.

    I'm off to watch their scenes again and will post later.

    I will miss Jax. I would miss Brenda if they hadn't written so badly for her, I am gload she left Sonny. Carly, who I have always loved, needs to grow up, I'm getting sick of her.
