: What is with all of this "Waiting for the real Jason Morgan" crap I see on some of the boards here, on twitter, and in the facebook groups about? I understand that people are upset that they aren't seeing their couple on screen so they use any excuse they can (i.e. Sam has drugged Jason, Sam is conning Jason blah blah blah) to try and justify to themselves why their couple isn't together but it honestly makes no sense.
Jason is more himself around Sam than he is with anyone else. When he was in his other pairing he was to constantly lying, sneaking around, and letting someone convince him that he's not good enough to openly claim his own child. To say that Jason isn't being himself because he took Sam back after everything that happened isn't accurate either because Jason has forgiven people before. He forgave Robin for the stunt she pulled with A.J. telling him about Michael and he forgive Carly everytime she screws up, so why would it be irrational to think that he would forgive Sam? I know what she did was wrong but it's a SOAP OPERA, much worse has been forgiven and forgotten.
If anything the fact that he forgave Sam after all of that just proves that no love can compare to theirs. After all of the horrible things that the two of them have done to eachother, they still couldn't stay away. They tried to stay mad at each other and to move on to other people and it worked for a while, but here we are again watching the magic of Jasam on our screen. Another thing that tends to confuse me about some of the other pairings. The people that both Sam and Jason were paired with during the dark ages could not accept the way that their significant other chose to live their life. Lucky hated that Sam wanted to be a Private Investigator, and correct me if I’m wrong most of the time when they fought it was about how she took to many risks right? I think Elizabeth said it best herself when she was having a conversation with Patrick after Jake’s kidnapping.
“The truth is you can’t truly love someone until you understand and accept who they are, and really who can understand Jason. I tried but I painted this ridiculous fairytale that he was going to change and that I was going to be the person who changed him.”
Sam never tried to change Jason, she loves and accepts him the way that he is. Just like Jason loves and accepts her for who she is. She never asked him to give up his job for her because she loves him, and when you love someone you accept every part of them. Whenever something bad happens to her, Sam doesn’t automatically blame Jason even if it does have something to do with his job. She loves him all the time. Not just when he’s not a work or when nothing hectic or dangerous is going on. So I will now return to the whole point of this rant. This is the real Jason Morgan. Yeah Sam screwed up and so did he but they obviously have a bond great enough to get past that. Jason doesn’t have to try and be something he’s not with Sam, nor does he need to sneak around and lie about his relationship with her because she is not embarrassed or ashamed of her man.
(I’m not quite sure if this makes sense and I kind of got off topic but I needed to rant, also I know a lot of people will want to argue this and tell me how wrong I am but this is my opinion and I’m not gonna sugar coat it anymore than I already did in my own bubble so that I don’t upset lurkers. Sorry)
