General Hospital Just Laid the Groundwork for Jason and Sam’s Reunion… Right When It’s Already Too Late — Here’s Why
It looks like it’s going to be so close and yet so far for the former Morgans.
General Hospital had Sam draw a very clear, very deep line in the sand where Jason and his dangerous lifestyle were concerned… and more than ever, this week it’s looked like she wants to cross that line.
On May 11, you’ll recall, Sam went to Carly looking for information about her true love. Sam knew that he was injured, knew that he was on the run with Britt and felt that under the circumstances, she herself needed to get involved. In response, Sonny’s “widow” gave up a total of no intel and reminded Sam that “you’re not a part of this anymore.
“You made the decision to separate yourself from Jason and this business,” she added, “so this is what ‘separate’ means.”

Sam tried to play the “But Jason is Danny’s father!” card… which Carly immediately and soundly trumped. “And you’re Danny’s mother,” she reminded Sam. “And you made a decision to protect him and Scout and yourself.
“You’re out, Sam,” she went on. “I can’t help you. Bye, Felicia.”
OK, Carly didn’t actually say that last part, but it was implied. Also pretty darned clear was Sam’s second-guessing of her choice to split from Jason. Maybe living in fear for the kids’ lives with him was better than living in fear for his life without him.

Meanwhile, just as Sam is circling this epiphany — to the point that she’s taken off in search of Stone Cold — Jason is growing closer and closer to Britt. Hey, that’s just the kind of thing that happens when two attractive people are on the run. And he seems as willing to overlook her past misdeeds as she is to shrug off his career as a professional hooligan. He even encouraged her to open up to him about why her hands shook.
“Whatever it is you’re hiding,” he assured her, “you can tell me.” And that, she did.
So what we’re betting is, now that Sam has managed to locate Jason, he’ll push her away for her own safety’s sake, thereby allowing his and Britt’s relationship to evolve from friendship to… let’s say something more. When the two of them eventually return to Port Charles, it will be obvious to anyone with eyes that they are now lovers. This shocking development, in turn, will send Sam spiraling, perhaps right into Dante’s arms, setting the stage for a prolonged separation between the Dragon and the Phoenix.
What do you think, General Hospital fans? Do you see things playing out the same way? And if so, what would your reaction be? On your way to the comments, stop off at the below photo gallery, which revisits highs and lows of JaSam’s relationship.
<p>Jason Morgan and Sam McCall first came together while she was pregnant with Sonny Corinthos’ baby. However, since Sonny had just reunited with Carly Corinthos, Jason stepped in to claim he was the father. He offered to take care of Sam and the baby, so she moved in with him. Sadly, Sam went into premature labor and the baby died. Jason and Sam grew close in the aftermath, thus beginning their long love affair.</p>
<p>Jason and Sam eventually had their own child, Danny Morgan. Sam also thought her daughter Scout was Jason’s child, but Drew Cain, who was once the presumed returned-from-the-dead Jason Morgan, is her biological father. Jason also has a son, Jake, with Elizabeth Webber.</p> <p> </p>
<p>Despite a couple of engagements, Jason and Sam only said ‘I do’ once. It occurred in a intimate, yet, romantic ceremony performed at a Chinese restaurant with no guests in attendance. After they made it official without the pressures of family, they had a big celebration with their loved ones. Sam did marry “Jason” one other time, but he was actually Drew, so that doesn’t really count.</p> <p> </p>
<p>Sam and Jason have been fending off supervillains since day one. They’ve been kidnapped, threatened, and tortured by countless evil-doers including Manny Ruiz, Mr. Craig/Jerry Jacks, the Balkan, reformed serial killer/artist Franco, Cesar Faison, Shiloh, and more.</p>
<p>Since meeting Sam, the only other woman in Jason’s life, not including his best friend Carly, has been Elizabeth Webber. Jason and Elizabeth’s bond goes way back (before he met Sam) and they share a son and were once engaged. As for Sam, in between breakups and makeups with Jason, she had affairs and/or relationships with Ric Lansing, Lucky Spencer, John McBain, Silas Clay, Patrick Drake, and, of course, Drew Cain even after they discovered he wasn’t Jason.</p> <p> </p>
<p>Jason has tried to distance himself from Sam in the past to keep her safe from his dangerous business and his bond with Elizabeth often came between them. Sam once went so far as to hire men to scare Elizabeth and her boys away from Jason, which created a huge rift between them. Another break up occurred when Sam blamed Jason in part for Danny’s “death.” In reality, the boy had been kidnapped and switched with Tea Delgado’s baby who died. They, of course, overcame that, but, wouldn’t you know it, Jason was “killed” by Faison and held for years as Patient Six in a facility overseen by Peter August. Once Jason and Sam reunited, she was convicted of killing Shiloh, even though it was in self-defense. Upon her release, she was forbidden to come in contact with convicted felons, which included Jason.</p>
<p>Sam’s frustration over not being allowed to see the love of her life led her to strike a deal with Valentin Cassadine. He arranged for a more lenient parole officer to oversee her case in exchange for her giving him her children’s ELQ stock proxy. Sam was allowed to spend time with Jason, but Valentin’s interference in Quartermaine business was swift and potentially game-changing, which could lead to more problems for Jason and Sam.</p>
