HEY, Isn't Jason Morgan Monica's Son??

Ummmmmm, NOPE!! You see, long long ago in the land of Port Charles a lovely brunette woman (Susan Moore) lived in a little cottage across the way. Alan would watch her from his "telescope" (I'm not making that up).  They had a torrid affair and poor Alan found out not only was his wife Monica PG with his first born heir, but Susan Moore was also preggo!! 
Eventually, Susan was murdered by Crane-- and Alan brought Jason home, asking Monica to raise the boy as theirs. Monica agreed.
That's where the huge AJ/Jason rivalry started... 


back then...no blue eyes!!
His STEP father was Scotty Baldwin, btw..something you'd never know by the Guza's "history" reduction. Alan fought Scotty for Jason--and was awarded custody as his bio-dad. Monica didn't know about Jason up until then. Soapy GOODNESS!! 

Jason and AJ were in boarding school for awhile and came home grown. AJ was a screw up  and Jason on the track to be Alan's protegee in the medical field. Well, until AJ drove drunk into a tree and Jason was forever changed into a mobular hitman with limited feelings. (frontal lobe damage).

I'm  sure this will all be explained when Heather gets to town. I believe Heather was with Scott at the time the custody battle was happening. 


As for the baby in the film sequence? Jason as a baby- and how did Franco get it? I say because Susan Moore is his mama. BY THE WAY...this would all be WAY more interesting if ALAN WAS ALIVE (Blaming Guza again!!) !!

Great summary.
How is Scotty Jasons step father? Did Scott marry Susanne and I forgot?

Caffeinated Joe said...

Great summary, I remember it all well. Was so amazed to actually be HEARING the name Susan Moore again! And yeah, Scott married Susan to ride her Quartermaine gravy train. I too think Heather will have some answer about the video. Either it is a video of baby Jason or it is a video of Jason's brother - twin? - Franco. Not sure I'd buy that retcon, but hey, they are remembering the past, so I will let it go! It is no way as bad as the HORRIBLE retcon they did to Rick Webber before killing him off so callously.

My2Cents2 said...

OK now I remember Scott marrying her.
Isn't this what we all have been asking for, for years and years?
The history?? Now we are getting it and I love every minute of it.

Thank You GH for understanding!!

Nancy1124 said...

Oh my goodness I remember watching all that on GH, back when GH was so captivating and addictive to watch, it surely is nice to have some of the history back in the show!

Tawna said...

My2Cents, it's Susan not Susanne.
Karen, Monica had AJ before Susan got pregnant with Jason. They weren't pregnant at the same time.

Who cares besides you?

Tawna said...

Caffeinated Joe - it was awful what they did to Rick Webber. :( He was a great character back in the day.

MatchboxGinny said...

My2Cents - WHY are you so argumentative?? Can't you just play nice in the sandbox? (*sigh)

Brender said...

Geez, 2Cents. Tawna was just letting you know the name? Why do you need to get an attitude about it. I learned in school that if someone is saying someone elses name wrong, you nicely let them know because it is the polite thing to do...

Anyway, I am pretty excited about this new storyline that seems to be coming. I have not watched GH that long, so I appreciate everyone giving the scoops and everyones opinions about the history.

Obviously, not you. :-D LOL!

I wonder...with all the vets coming back, will Kin Shriner be one of them? It would be awesome to see Scotty again.

You are right about that.

NO I can't. Her corrections were made toward myself and Karen. BOTH were senseless to make. I don't play into people's lack of self-esteem. There are more life threatening things going on in my life than to take a spelling correction. Over a name??

Brender I learned in school, to stay out of other people's business.

randomly anonymous said...

Adding cents..lol I think if memory serves Susan and Heather were cousins.

My2Cents2 said...

Random Anon...you are correct. They were cousin's. A fact I forgot and most people never knew.
That is the fun on all this history coming back.
Times may change in the soap industry, tv industry, but one is always interested in history. That is where I think the new writers are going. JMO

I would love for Scotty to come back.

Tawna said...

2cents - we both love GH, the characters and the history.
I'm looking forward to what RC and FV have in store for us.

I am too!! lol

LaTanya said...

I remember when Alan brought Jason home and Monica refused to be living in the same house with "that" kid so she took AJ and moved into the gatehouse! lol

Caffeinated Joe said...

I have always loved how Monica came to think of Jason as her own. Always thought it was sort of a kinship she felt, since she was an orphan herself, raised without any family. They never addressed it as such on the show, but I figured she could relate to this little baby who lost his mother and needed her to be that.

soaplover said...

Caffeinated Joe's post reminded me that Gail Baldwin had been Monica's mentor. Long ago when she first arrived.
Monica's pregnancy with AJ was a separate and earlier story than Susan's pregnancy.

Monica had always had a thing for Rick Webber, even while she was married to his brother. When Jeff divorced her because of it, Rick rejected her and she married Alan Q. Meanwhile Rick married Leslie and they were happy for awhile. He even adopted Laura and later he and Leslie took in Amy, who had been raised as Laura's sister.

During a terrible night at the hospital, when Rick and Monica lost a patient, they became involved again. Rick tried to stay true to Lesley, but the pull between them was strong and an affair developed and Lesley divorced Rick. When Monica was discovered to be pregnant, she assumed it was Rick's and hoped this would win him finally, but it was discovered baby AJ had a Q birthmark. (Meantime, Alan had tried twice to kill the lovers!)
Anyway, Alan always resented AJ because of that long period when he thought the kid was Rick Webber's, so he was never very loving to AJ. Alan and Monica reconciled but it was always an uneasy truce.

Much later, Alan took up with Susan Moore who had taken over managing the Campus Disco, after Luke ran off with Laura. Finally he put her up in a cute little cottage across town (the Q's live in a mansion on Harborview Rd, very ritzy)--until she got bored and wanted marriage. Susan's cousin Heather got involved with Scotty after Scotty decided to take up with Susan after Alan left her. He married Susan and she had the baby. Susan was giving all Qs a hard time and Crane Tolliver (who I think was an old ex of Lila's) murdered her.
And so on. There was at least 2 or 3 years between AJ and Jason.
I remember Leslie telling Laura about her miserable moment in court that day as the judge granted her divorce. They were sitting in the hospital cafeteria, a place used often for tête-à-têtes and for folks waiting thru operations. Luke first met sister Bobbie's newest boyfriend, Noah Drake, in that cafeteria (loved that scene), and it was where Luke first began to think Laura might have feelings for him. It would be great to bring back that place for character chats and drama. I still see Luke and Bobbie going arm in arm down the hall to the Cafeteria whenever either had a crisis. Sometimes they did a little skip. I really miss some of those old relationships, but I can understand some actors' reluctance to have viewers see them as they have aged. Can't be easy to read all the jabs at their face work or how bad they look now. Easier to just avoid it all....

Actually many people respondind to karen's blog are long time viewers of GH and knew that susan is heather's cousin and jason's mom (many talked about it in previous posts ). We were wondering what relationship Heather will have concerning jason's illness. Will Franco be jason's half brother or has their been a lie and baby switch ( perhaps not a Q )?

I think Alan Q may be one of the pleasant surprises coming back to GH. :)

My2Cents2 said...

NOTHING would make me happier than to see Alan come back. Hell, I would even believe the past 5 years were a dream!

I hope Jason remains a Q.

Now I have a ?? (stupid)

Jason/Franco are probably brothers or fraternal twins. Would that be why Sam's pregnancy came up as Jason's being the father? The dna is the same as Franco's??

Carrie Ann said...

My2Cents2..I have been wondering the same thing about the DNA. If Franco and Jason are brothers then would the DNA be the same in the test. Would they even know in testing after the baby is born? What a horrid thing if you were never able to know for real. If anyone with a degree in genetics is out there maybe they can give us an answer.

kdmask said...

Yes, I was wondering if the brother's sperm could be matching or close enough in DNA. But I hope it doesn't go that far. I'm just hoping Jason killed his own brother and then has a meltdown and goes back to medicine or something!

Carrie Ann said...

I just looked up the answer to my question and here it is. Can DNA paternity testing distinguish who is the biological father if the tested man has an identical twin brother?

No. Identical twins share are the product of one egg and on sperm which after fertilization the embryo will begin to grow and then split into two fetuses. Identical twins have 100% of their genetic markers in common; therefore, no genetic test can distinguish which of them is the true biological father. If either is tested and is not excluded, the other twin is also included as the potential father. Other non genetic factors must be considered by the court in determining the paternity of the child in question.

Poor Jason and Sam....

sonya said...

Karen say HEY, Isn't Jason Morgan Monica's Son??
=========================
YES! :) In all the ways that count. :)

and Alan brought Jason home, asking Monica to raise the boy as theirs. Monica agreed.
=======================
Not right away tho. :) She was furious and did NOT want baby Jason to be living in her house! She didn't want reminders of Alan's affair.

Sidednote: Oh Karen! You got rid of the Capecia thing? YAY! :)

===================

Clearly they were not ID twins, but fraternal (if that's the tale), so the DNA test wd tell.

That is what I would like to know as well.

Life...Love...Thoughts and Opinions...(of a Divorce Mediator and Counsellor) said...

Franco and Jason woudl be Fraternal twins and would not have identical DNA. They are very distinguishable through testing.

That being said...this is a soap opera. Dead people come back, cheat on each other with friends and family and are forgiven, and age 10 years over a summer vacation.

That is what makes it all so fune to watch.
