PatientSix-gun-GH-ABC Sonny and Patient Six hold guns on one another at Sonny’s safe house. Sonny asks him who he is, and Patient Six claims he is Jason. Sonny asks where he’s been if he’s Jason because five years is a long time. Patient Six reveals it hasn’t felt like five years to him, and all he knows is he woke up in a Russian clinic after being drugged and held captive by some people. He confirms that is where he met Ava, and that he did try and call Sonny. Sonny asks who did this to him, but Patient Six has no idea. He explains how Ava helped him escape, and then a priest helped him stow away on a ship to New York. He goes over all his moves once he got back to Port Charles, including finding out Sam is married to some guy that everyone thinks is him. He learned from Ava that Helena had him, and he had to have reconstructive surgery. Sonny informs him it is more complicated than that because there was DNA proof and scans from before his surgery showing his old face. Patient Six says he is Jason, not that guy. He begs Sonny to tell him that he believes him. Patient Six says that he would never have left Sonny willingly, or turned his back on him to start a media company. He left because he was shot in the back. Sonny believes him and extends his hand. The two shake, and Sonny pulls him into an embrace.
