Going forward-Jason, Sam, Elizabeth, Jake, and Franco

I've been thinking all weekend that Franco could easily set up Luke with his car being at a deserted Haunted Star however I still don't understand the 'why' unless it is to test Jason by straining his relationship with Sonny. I think it would have been further tested by making the 'hit and runner' Sam but since TG is scheduled for his vacation it was perhaps more convenient for the writers to go this way.

(Heaven forbid their convenient writing give us a cohesive storyline.)

Since we now know that Franco is back on canvas and I'm confident he took Jake the only question is when Jason will know Jake is alive and how it will impact Jason's relationships with Elizabeth and Sam. I think "Jake's Death" is going to be the catalyst that will bring Jason and Elizabeth together (not saying I want that, just saying that I see the potential of this happening as a couple would cleave together to protect their "back from the dead child"). After all, Elizabeth has stated that she feels guilty for keeping Jason from his son and she is the queen of bad decisions/emotional decisions/decisions on the fly. When Jake returns Elizabeth is going to make many emotional decisions.

Jason is thinking 'all heart/no brain' for the first time since his brain injury. Kudos to SB for really showing that transition. It has been a subtle slide ever since Michael was shot and then accelerated somewhat when he was imprisoned but now it is full force. Jason is no longer Stone Cold. He 'may' be able to retain his 'killer status' but he has become very human and it's sweet to see.

It will be curious to see how this ultimately affects how he deals with Franco. He may not be able to pull the trigger when he needs to if his compassion overwhelms his anger and need for revenge. I'm certain that will be the case with Luke (since Luke makes it to vacation, haha)

Sam.. on the other hand, seems more and more distant. Perhaps the blast affected her emotionally and she can pick up where Jason left off. That would actually be fun (twisted but fun).

General Hospital - Bringing Jake Back

Because I hate the idea of 3 year old Jake Webber dying on General Hospital I have worked my brain overtime into a plausible storyline that would 'Bring Jake Back'.
So ... here goes.
This rests on the premise that little ‘Jake’ was so mangled in the car accident that he was unidentifiable, his parents don't go in to say goodbye because they are too stricken, etc.
1) The black, no name, unidentified car that went through the intersection belongs to Franco (assuming Franco or a henchman have been stalking Elizabeth's with a fair haired child on hand just waiting for a moment when little Jake would be standing on the road or perhaps they went to take Jake and he made it convenient by standing on the road's edge - you know how Franco likes to twist things into being the other persons 'fault'
2) An identical, mangled tow-headed little boy is left at the scene (in the same clothes) and Jake is whisked away for whatever nefarious dealings Franco has planned or simply used to taunt Jason down the road. Franco is anything if nice (he tossed a guy off a building to die in his stead as a decoy.. so this is a very Franconian thing to do
3) Hysterical Elizabeth only sees a crumpled blond baby boy on the side of the road, calls 911 and goes in from there. Note: I don’t believe Elizabeth or Lucky see Jake at the hospital because of the condition he is in.
4) Joss’ kidney transplant leads to a CLUE in the coming weeks that Jake is alive. (Mention of a mismatched blood type or something and then Jason can go on the hunt).
We need to preserve the great dynamic that is POSSIBLE by keeping another generation of the Quartermaine legacy family alive.

Take three... here I go

Ah.. I know I never write here.. but I'm starting.. "write now"
because I have something to say, at any rate, about a show I love: General Hospital.
