General Hospital Spoilers: Head Writer Explains Why He Decided to Resurrect Little Jake Webber

RonCIt all makes perfect sense really. It was nothing the General Hospital writing team had planned on doing, but to them, and now to the fans, it completely makes sense in regard to Luke Spencer’s (Tony Geary) exit story. However, the lasting impact on resurrecting Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst) and Jason Morgan’s (Billy Miler) son, Jake, will have a lasting impact on the people of Port Charles as a whole.

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, General Hospital Head Writer, Ron Carlivati explains why they decided to bring little Jake back from the dead. He said, “It really was not something we were planning to do.”

Luke Spencer’s exist story had to be one for the books. Since Luke was the one who actually hit little Jake and caused his “death,” the writing team felt this was the perfect way to make Luke and Laura’s (Genie Francis) adventure to be as memorable as possible, while also leaving a great story for the rest of the town, even after Luke leaves the canvas.With all that is going on with Sam and Jason, Elizabeth and Jason (Jake), and Liz and Nikolas, having Jake be alive will stir the pot for many story lines.

For all the fans that have questioned little Jake’s organ donation, Carlivati explains, “We had to pull out a bag of tricks, and go to our go-to person, Helena Cassadine, for help, and made it work.”

So what does this mean for Elizabeth and Jake Doe? Sam and Jake (Jason)?…

Elizabeth is still hiding Jake’s true identity from him. Knowing that he is actually Jason Morgan, Liz is depriving the man she claims to love of his real wife, Sam (Kelly Monaco), and his son, Danny Morgan. General Hospital rumors speculated that Lucky Spencer (Jonathan Jackson), little Jake’s adoptive father, is on his way to inform Elizabeth of the news regarding their son. Once Liz finds out that Jake, her son with Jason is actually alive, will she finally tell Jake Doe that he is actually Jason? We think so. Judging from Liz’s past behaviors, it isn’t enough right now that Jason has a wife and son out there, but once she finds out THEIR son is alive, her whole tune is likely to change. In our opinion, we predict that Elizabeth will want the real Jason Morgan to get to know their son, little Jake and will ponder her decision to finally come clean, now that she too has a family again with Jason.

We want to know where you think this story will lead. Share this post and comment with your thoughts and theories.

Little Jake is Alive! Check Out Recaps of His Death, It Will Bring You to Tears

LuckyJakedeathGeneral Hospital’s Summer Stunner is no doubt one of the biggest shocks we could have ever asked for. A few years ago Elizabeth Webber and Jason Morgan lost their son when he got out of Liz’s house and was hit by a car. His adoptive father Lucky was beside himself at the loss of his son and the fact that his own father, Luke, was the hit and run driver.

These gut wrenching scenes will bring you to tears as you watch Elizabeth, Jason, Lucky, and their loved ones go through what no parent should ever have to experience… the loss of a child.

Helena has always been evil, but we have just realized her maximum capacity at evil doing. As it turns out, little Jake is not dead, in fact, he is very much alive. In this week’s scenes where Luke Spencer and Helena Cassadine said their goodbyes, she informed Luke that she has a parting gift for him. That gift, is that the grandson he thought he killed while he was drunk driving, is not dead at all. Instead, little Jake was part of another one of Helena’s evil plots to put the Spencer family though Hell.

Take a look at this amazing video recap created by a GH fan, YouTube user. It will definitely bring you to tears, and give you a little history refresher in the process. Take a look!

General Hospital Spoilers: Little Jake Webber is Alive, Who Staged His Death?

LuckyLizGeneral Hospital spoilers were spot on when we were warned that there would be a “Summer Stunner,” This Summer on General Hospital is going to heat up rather quickly. With Lucky back in town, and an awkward confrontation between him and Liz, Luke leaving Port Charles, Dante and Lulu on the fritz, Liz lying to Jake, and Sam… things are about to explode!

Lucky just told his father, Luke, that he didn’t kill little Jake, that Jake is actually alive. All this time Luke and his loved ones were lead to believe that his irresponsibility with his drinking, and his off mind-set was the cause of Jake’s accident. Who in the world would want to fake a child’s death and pin it on Luke so that Luke is guilt stricken for the rest of his life? Is it safe to say that we think it’s Helena Cassadine? As Tony Geary’s character Luke Spencer comes full circle in preparation for his farewell, it makes perfect sense that Helena would be behind such an evil plan. Since the beginning of the Spencer family, the Cassadines have been out to destroy each and every one of them emotionally, mentally, physically, and in any way possible. The Spencer family has been tortured by Helena and her psycho family for decades.

Dante and Lulu: Whose Side Are You On? Find Out What Team We Are On!

ValDanteFor us over at General Hospital Blog, this one is a no-brainer. However, there have been many General Hospital fans who have been arguing the opposing side. There have been countless debates in General Hospital Facebook groups such as Loyal General Hospital fans, arguing for and against each party. Here is what we think…

I’m just going to lay it out on the table, nice and bluntly. Dante was just diagnosed with foot in mouth disease. Seriously, I mean, how stupid should he feel right now? Jumping to the assumption that his wife, Lulu, would immediately jump into bed with her ex, Dillon Quartermaine just days after he arrived back in Port Charles, I mean, come on! Does he not know his wife at all? After all they have been through, dating, through marriage, and through trying to conceive little Rocco, does Dante think Lulu would throw that all away at the drop of a dime? Apparently, he does think that, and it’s actually what HE ended up doing. Yes Lulu lied to her husband, but lying to protect her brother’s life doesn’t even come close to justify being cheated on.

The opposing side, those who blame Lulu, claim that she is at fault for not trusting her own husband. When will Dante (and the fans) realize that this ISN’T about Dante? Certain situations have a great way of exposing people’s egotistical mind set. Dante just had to make this about HIMSELF. God forbid he put himself in Lulu’s shoes, and tried to understand that her own brother’s life was at stake, and that her parents made her swear not to tell a soul, especially a cop. The risk was just too great. If anything had happened to Lucky because Lulu felt the need to feed Dante’s ego and let him in on the secret, life threatening situation, that would be an awful burden for her to bare for the rest of her life.

Not only did Dante ASSUME his loving, devoted, wife, his partner in life, was screwing around with her ex-boyfriend from her teen years, he then tried justifying his continued anger with her due to the fact that “she lied.”

As stated before, this to GH Blog is a no-brainer. Dante should have waited to confront his wife before acting out on what he THOUGHT his wife had done to him. Was this just an excuse for him to get with Valerie? Deep down, did Dante want a reason to sleep with Lulu’s cousin?

We won’t go that far as of yet, but we do feel that Dante is reaching. Now Dante must justify his betrayal to himself and he is coming up with an excuse for his behavior. He is even throwing Luke into this argument. He is displaying feelings of jealousy toward his father-in-law, and his wife’s devotion to helping him. Dante has some serious insecurity issues that he needs to address STAT, in our honest opinion.

We want to know what the fans think! Are you #TeamDante or #TeamLulu?

Find Out What Tony Geary Said About Genie That Will Make You Swoon

GearyInterviewLuke and Laura are legends, but they would be nothing without the fire and chemistry between the two people who have portrayed them for over 3 decades. Tony Geary and Genie Francis came together unexpectedly to make television magic.

In an interview with Paolo Presta for his show, A Spoonful of Paolo, General Hospital’s Anthony Geary (Lucas Lorenzo Spencer), touches on what it was like to work with certain stars over the years. “Her husky voice drove me crazy. I thought she was hot stuff.” That is a statement Geary made about Demi Moore, who played Jackie Templeton on GH. He referred to another star, Roseanne Barr as, “A tough lady,” and went on to tell Paolo that he asked her to marry him  when they met.

What Tony Geary said about his long time friend and co-star Genie Francis will melt your heart. His statement regarding Genie, and his relationship with her put their entire existence ans Luke and Laura into perspective. Geary tells Paolo, “Her talent was spectacular, and is spectacular. Her vulnerability, her ability to use her emotional range, is unsurpassed. It’s hard to even go there because there’s so much…” As if THAT wasn’t amazing enough, Geary proceeded to say, “Our artistic souls met somewhere in outer space. In the early days, I felt very protective of her, which I think fed the relationship of Luke and Laura.”

It’s apparent that Tony Geary and Genie Francis have an undeniable chemistry and bond that compares to nothing else we have seen on television. Their off screen admiration for one another shaped the dynamic of their characters, Luke and Laura.

As Anthony Geary prepares to leave General Hospital after 37 years, he told Paolo Presta that it will be the people he will miss the most.
