It’s what we’ve been waiting for since 2014. “General Hospital” fans were told they were getting their beloved Jason back in the form of Emmy-winning actor Billy Miller. What they NEVER expected was that the already-amnesiac would develop further amnesia after Ava mowed him down with her car–and that the new amnesia would last nearly two years.
On Monday, May 9th, Jason finally remembers his life when Sonny (Maurice Benard) apparently needs him to help save Dante (Dominic Zamprogna). Does he remember even as Jason Morgan he could perform tracheotomies with a pen? (And, how fortuitous that Carlos swiped a pen.) If he remembers everything else, why not that?
Soap Hub wanted to know if you’re as excited as we are to see Jason’s memories return. After all, we’ve gotten to know him as a new man with some of those same instincts, but a changed character nonetheless. It turns out you want the weekend to pass with lightning speed just as we do.
Out of nearly 6,000 votes, a full 92% of you say you’re extremely excited about Jason’s total recall. You feel it’s about time and it will change the dynamic of the character, the story, and Port Charles for the better. You’ve waited way too long and need to see how it all plays out.
A much smaller 5% of you are just somewhat excited. You like the man Jason is now and feel his memories are incidental.
The final 3% don’t even care. You’ve never felt an affinity for the Jason character, either as a Quartermaine or Morgan. Having Jason’s memories return doesn’t impact whether you watch the show or not.
Clearly, Soap Hub doesn’t fall in that 3%. Jason’s memories have been a long time coming and we can’t wait for them to get here.
