Who was the first man that Carly hooked up with when she arrived on General Hospital (GH)?
Jason (Steve Burton), that’s who! Then played by Emmy-winner Sarah Brown, while Carly was ingratiating herself into biological mother, Bobbie’s (Jaclyn Zeman) life, she was also having sex with Jason in a variety of places, including on pool tables.
Carly moved on to Bobbie’s husband, Tony (Brad Maule), but now friend without benefits Jason stepped in when she was sent to prison for shooting Tony after he’d kidnapped Michael, and Carly lied that Jason was her baby’s father – not AJ.
Carly carried a torch for Jason even after AJ blackmailed her into marriage, but sleeping with Sonny (Maurice Benard) officially ended the possibility of Jason ever feeling the same way about her.
Still, that was almost 20 years ago! We’ve been through several Carlys since then – including Sarah Brown returning as Claudia, and Tamra Braun taking on the role of Kim.
Is it time to revisit Carly’s first Port Charles love? Here’s how almost 10,000 fans voted:
Too Much, Too Little, Too Late
Jason may have picked up Sam (Kelly Monaco) after Sonny tossed her aside, but Carly (Laura Wright) is beyond the pale, 67% of you decree.
The first time Jason left town it was because of Carly and Sonny, so clearly this is one thing the hitman can’t just overlook with his usual blank stare. They are never, ever getting back together.
On the Other Hand…
Isn’t it possible that Jason’s strong reaction proves that Carly is the one woman he can’t get out of his system merely via a ride on his motorcycle or a walk of pain, 32% of the audience plays devil’s advocate.
What if he still has feelings for her? He’s certainly doing more to help Carly in her current situation than her on-again/off-again husband! That’s got to mean something.
