andre-is-questioned-gh-abcEmotions run high at the PCPD as everyone circles around Andre. Diane questions the doctor, who explains his research. He recalls that he never spoke to either twin before the procedure, as they were already unconscious. However, he knew which man was Jason as he needed to “Xerox” his memories. In fact, Andre mapped memories from both men so he could place Jason’s over Drew’s. He didn’t know what happened to the men afterwards, until he was contacted in 2013 by his employer to monitor the situation in Port Charles. After some prodding, Andre turns to Jason and says he was sent there to monitor Andrew Kane, which is him. He turns to Six and tells him he is Jason Morgan. Sam’s husband won’t accept it, believing Sonny paid Andre off. Sonny insists it isn’t true. Diane asks for proof, but Andre doesn’t have any. Spinelli blurts out that he has proof that Sam’s husband is Andrew. He pulls out a photo of the twin who was a decorated navy seal. He went AWOL in 2012 with no apparent motive. He says the Navy has Andrew’s fingerprints on file so all Jordan has to do is perform a simple search to compare them to Sam’s current husband. She complies and they’re a match. The man now called Andrew points out the electronic files could have been altered. Curtis tries to get Andrew to believe the facts, adding that being in the military is a badge of honor and he should be proud. However, Andrew doesn’t remember anything about that life. He glares at Jason and says, “I only remember his.” After everyone has dispersed, Jason thanks Diane, Spinelli and the Corinthoses for believing in him. They want to celebrate, but Jason has to hang back for his paperwork. In the interrogation room, Sam tells her husband he is a hero, but he says he has no connection to Andrew Kane. Andrew grows upset, worried the life he built for his family will be taken away. He storms out to confront Jason. He says no matter what the DNA tests say, they are not brothers.
