Sunday Surgery: Jason Watch 2017


It's upon us, Wubbers:  Burton and Miller are both IN THE HOUSE! One, struggling with a face mask that's fit for a serial killer, the the other in a bed with electrodes on his forehead. Will we last? Will we make it though? Can we survive the boring, mind-numbing build up?  Hey, if Kelly Monaco can ugly cry for days, I guess I can sit and watch. 

First of all, it's gorgeous out here--I mean, like totally gorgeous. It has been for a week and will be 90 degrees MONDAY!! That means I'm totally not into doing the blog. I did do a MIDWEEK SURGERY so hit that link for some ranting info.   







I'm going to give you the short version of the things that "happened" other than the sitting and waiting and waiting and sitting for St. Jaysus #1 to do anything but clench his fist-- or Jaysus #2 to wake up. 



In no particular order: 

**Nelle was going to move because her apartment was going condo.  BUT! Michael saved the day by buying it for her. By her reaction she's none too happy. She probably wanted to move into the Q's! 


**Jessica Tuck is on as Cassandra. Anna dragged Finn to "Monaco" to ...um... I guess it has something to do with that diamond and Valentin. Getting someone as fab as Jessica to be isolated in "Monaco" With 2 other characters--well, that sounds like Marion from AMC. She got the Man Landers Show. Let's hope this turns out better. 

**Speaking of waste of talent, Dr. David Bensch (Max Holden to the rest of us) -- is walking around doing nothing but grumbling at Kiki. 



**Sam put Billy Miller in a rehab facility. He grew a beard. They had a great scene with Danny and Jake but chopped it up into little pieces. Infuriating. 

**Krissy and Parker "made up" then promptly didn't because Parker thought it would hurt her career so yada yada. Whatever.

**At the Shriner's Hospital FOR CHILDREN, Valentin and Lulu make an agreement about joint custody for Charlotte. Who knows if it will last. I'm not betting on it. 



Gee Sam, you're right...something's not right here
Sonny, I swear I just get this feeling...he wasn't himself since...well.
He came back? Yeah I know.. he doesn't even like Giraffes anymore.




You're RIGHT Sonny...he never mentions GIRAFFES!! 

ON TO THE JASON WATCH! (Which is kind of like a Whale Watch--without the boat or the sea-sickness).  



So, Jason took off his sunglasses Tuesday so we knew it was indeed, Steve Burton in there. He kept that mask on I guess, because it's CHAINED TO HIS HEAD? It's supposed to be for 'Protection"?? Or ...does he just like it? How does he eat? Why is his nose all covered up??
Anyway, some new American doctor comes in and tells Ava that Burton is SO TRAUMATIZED AND DANGEROUS (sounds like a song) that he has to be injected with (and I kid you not) horse tranquilizers (known on the mean streets as "Special K")  BUT!! Wait!! St. Jaysus is SO strong and SO manly, he can still clench and release his fist !! He can almost stand up!! He can write a phone number down to Ava!! 

Believe me, if you somehow missed 'his return' this week you really didn't miss anything. Next week that number turns out to be (spoiler) the love of his life's --and I'm not talking about Sam.  (or Liz, or Robin--or even his mother).  You know who's going to get the call, right? THE STAR OF THE SHOW --"He Who Must Be in Every Story".  :eyeroll:  -- But it's the doctor that calls, not Ava and not JASON 
We also learned from Franco's Mama that Franco and Jason are "not related" (but actually, they are--they are cousins).  Ergo, Miller and Burton are the twins. Here is MY speculation as to how the story will unfold: 



Helena found out about the twin. I don't know how he came to live with Franco but it probably involves Heather (of course). Alan never knew about the twin but he is identical to Jason that was left in Port Charles. 
So, Helena finds out and captures Billy Miller at some point in his life (not sure when) and starts training him to be her "soldier boy" on the Island. She even implants him with memories.  Helena's plan is to switch him out for Steve Burton so she'll have an identical Jason in PC (with the DNA to prove it) and he can carry out her evil deeds. She'll take the OTHER Jason (Burton) and kill him.  She had taken Billy Miller (still with "Jason's face") to the clinic where Robin was Creighton Clark?  To finish the training and to get Robin to think it was him. Her plans are thwarted however, when Ava runs him over. Not only did he have another face, he lost his implanted memories. When he starts to remember the implanted memories, those scarecrow things come back too (remember that hooey on the island with Franco??) and that's where Jake saw him (looking like Burton). 




PHEW!! Take a drink people!!  Now this would work with what we were shown. There is a hitch-- Patrick saw the same injuries that Jason had in his brain before he operated. I think that will just be swept under the rug like a ton of other things on this show. 
This makes Steve Burton "THE" original Jason and Miller the identical twin. This scenario will also force Sam to be torn for the Jason she's a soul mate with and this one that she's been loving and with whom she had a baby. (See Blair OLTL)
BUT! Don't shoot me if you're a Killy fan because this is just what I've figured out by using the clues. Who knows what the "REAL" story will be. 



These days are going to go very slowly.  I need to tell you that ever since Laura's return story in the early 80s I've HATED "dead returns". Why?? It took FOR-EVER for her to stop skulking around Port Charles and for Luke to see her. We had no spoilers per se then, so you had to watch every day. I probably got a C  in my typography class because I skipped to watch!!  (no recording devices either).  It's maddening. The best back from the dead ever was Tina Lord walking in on Cord's wedding holding a baby. We didn't see her for months before hand. NOPE she just SHOWED UP!!  

That's it for this week!! A new person is on the writing "staff"... and who knows what that means. Tamara Braun back? Here's hoping it's not a cameo. Here's hoping I'm not as crabby this week as last. It was brutal. 
Waiting will do that to you.

The consensus on many blogs and message boards is that GH is the best it has been in a while. Burton's return, the guessing games, and the anticipation are causing people to take notice and creating buzz. But not WUBS - nothing will ever be good enough so the snark continues.

Karen, thanks for the great SS. Your scenario re the 2 Jasons makes about the most sense of any I have heard. Of course, I really can't figure it out at all, when I try to put the pieces together, it feels like my head will explode!! Your story is basically seamless, I guess, except for the Patrick surgery comments, which, as you noted, likely will be swept under the rug.

JSL said...

Karen that was a very good read. I remember Patrick looking at a sonogram of Jason's brain and pointing out the 2 areas he did procedures on Jason's brain (Jake Doe). I guess there will be no explanation as you said. Best scenes this week were with Franco. Roger is doing a great job with not much of a script.

kdmask said...

Well, if this is the best it's ever been then I'm in the wrong business. LOL

Michelle Latta said...

LOL!! Yeh the GH we know today is nothing like back it's heyday. But loke someone else mentioned, after watching for 40 yrs it's hard to just turn it off, especially since we know how good it can be.

Bruce Farlow said...

I'll be watching as always!

AntJoan said...

OK, I know that I said this before, but the Parker/Krissy thing continues to bug me. Supposedly they had the hottest sex EVER, and Parker should know, even if Krissy is too young to realize it, that that kind of attraction is hard to resist. Therefore, Parker shouldn't continue to speak to her, especially where they are in each other's faces.

I know that the actress had a child, so I guess that's why they interrupted the SL. It looks like, now that she is back, they plan to go full speed ahead with this story, otherwise they wouldn't keep showing them together.

I wish they would listen to the fans, and just drop it . . .

WUBS: If you're referring to my comment; I didn't say it's the 'best it's ever been'. I said it's the best it's been in a while. But if it helps to embellish to make a point, then perhaps you ARE in the wrong business.

trust me, you are in the right business, wish you were a GH writer. I so don't care who is the real Jason or who Sam ends up choosing. The best parts of this week were MW for me. Did a lot of fast forwarding this week

Maria said...

Thanks for another great Sunday Surgery.
For those that dont like wubs' style (or snark), plz keep your comments to yourself.
This writer publishes her column weekly for us to enjoy, and for you to bash her style is insulting. Would you be happier not having the column to read?
Offer a differing viewpoint is one thing, but criticism of the writer/contributor is another.
Dont have anything nice to say, then keep quiet.

So, if you don't agree with me, you think I should be silenced? I'm not being rude or abusive - just simply stating facts. Sorry if it stings a little.

Attention everyone! We have a troll in the house. Do not feed it!

gap723 21 said...

Right JPink. I'm a troll because I disagree with the masses? Got it.

Michelle Latta said...

Changing the subject, Jason Thompson ex Patrick from GH and his wife welcomed a daughter, Rome Coco on January 20. I follow him on IG and he posted a photo, she's a cutie.

** There's one other issue besides the surgeries. That being BM having all of the JM memories. Even though it wasn't until he rescued (IIRC) Dante from the exploding police van, that they started to return. Though, considering that Jelly has played "fast and loose" with history in the past, whatever ends up happening, more than likely will probably be antother rewrite of history, to SOME degree at least, I would imagine. How much of one, is the real question.

AntJoan said...

K, but didn't Karen say that BM was programmed by Helena to have JM's memories? Again, I find this whole thing confusing.

Oh you hated Laura's return! But did you like how Luke saw her and yelled LAURAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! :)

"I probably got a C in my typography class because I skipped to watch!! (no recording devices either)."

ROFL! Yup those are the days when you couldn't tape it! :)

"The best back from the dead ever was Tina Lord walking in on Cord's wedding holding a baby. We didn't see her for months before hand. NOPE she just SHOWED UP!!"

Yup!! I agree! It was the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I loved it!!!! And then of course she had to manipulate Cord and fake fainted. ROFL!

"will be 90 degrees MONDAY!!"

And Tuesday too!!!!

kdmask said...

OMG unless you totally made a gross comment or it's not appropriate, you can say whatever you want!
I probably read your first comment wrong, sorry-- I'm actually GLAD you're liking the show. And yeah, I do snark--a LOT. It's just my thing.

** If they rewrite things maybe. But, MANY times she said that it was JM. She had control of his will, and pushed the memories aside, but no. She was thrilled to have control over him finally, because his "skills" were so well honed over years of use, he almost always reacted lethally. (Breaking Faison out of the prison transport van). Besides, even if it had just been the memories she put in his head, he would have HAD to have the years of physical conditionign and experience, to allow him to be able to that sort of thing. Were it just memories, he wouldn't have been able to act/react like he did. (Having the neuromuscualr condition I do, I've done enough reading and such over the years to try to understand stuff. Just giving BM's char JM's memories wouldn't do what he's able to do.

** Actually, there WERE VCR's back then. They were HUGE monstrosities that were a pain in the ass to figure out. I say this, because we had one at the time, since my mom traded our old "industrial grade" Kirby vacuum at the time to my brother-in-law for one. They just weren't EVERYWHERE yet, is all.
