Sonny will be lost without his right-hand man. But having just come back from the dead himself, will the erstwhile “Mike” ever truly believe that Jason is pushing up daisies? Or will he move heaven and earth to find proof that his BFF isn’t just wandering around out there with amnesia?
Can’t Spell ‘Friend’ Without ‘End’
Carly’s grief will be massive, especially seeing as Jason was reintroduced to his maker — or so it appears — so soon after the two of them rediscovered romantic feelings for one another that they thought had been buried long ago.
The Mother Lode
Since Jason, Drew and A.J. have all “died” before, you’d think Monica might take her favorite son’s latest demise in stride. But in her grief, expect her to cling extra tightly to Jason’s “late” twin, Drew… and maybe even bond with new Q Austin.
Looking for a New Love
Britt had started something tantalizing with Jason that ended not once (when he married Carly) but twice (when he bit the dust). Watch for her to redefine “on the rebound” — possibly into Drew’s arms.
The Weight of the World
Mind-control issues notwithstanding, Drew will likely take it upon himself to carry the burden of his ill-fated brother’s responsibilities. Will that include becoming a bigger factor in the life of Sam, the woman they both loved?
Little Boy Lost
Without Jason to act as the angel on his shoulder, Michael might crank up his ruthless side even further in his pursuit of “justice” against Nina — in the process driving an even bigger wedge between himself and Willow.
It was already over between Sam and Jason, but his passing certainly makes it seem over-over. Knocked for a loop by the loss, the former Mrs. Stone Cold is sure to double down on her commitment to Dante.
It’s Now or Never
Jason’s other major ex, Elizabeth, might view his “death” on the heels of Franco’s as a pointed reminder that life is as uncertain as it is short. As such, she’d better make the most of what time she has — with Finn.
Here Comes Trouble
As news of Jason’s “death” spreads, baddies like Cyrus will see opportunities aplenty. Without his muscle to protect him, Sonny and his turf will be more vulnerable than ever. So the mobster is going to need — and fast…
… Human Shield
And heaven knows buff Brando has all the attributes that the dimpled don might look for in a bodyguard/confidant combo.
