GH showrunners released an epic “General Hospital” spoilers video to get fans excited about the big ‘Jake is Jason’ reveal this week and the trailer does not disappoint. This lines up with the spoilers we’ve been releasing all weekend about the big event and it looks like it’s going to be must-watch TV. Here’s a look at what goes down in the video, what this tells us, and what it means for all parties involved.
First, Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig) is too excited about this wedding. She’ll confront Liz Webber (Rebecca Budig) just before she walks the aisle and say she knows her ugly truth. But when Liz pushes back, will Hayden sit back and let the chips fall where they may? She has no real skin in this game. After all, Liz is just an annoyance, it’s Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher) that Hayden is really targeting.
Second, Sam Morgan (Kelly Monaco) and Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) are front and center at the ceremony since Patrick will be the one to walk Liz down the aisle. You can’t ask for a more awkwardly uncomfortable seat to the explosive show that’s about to unfold. Sam will be stunned to the point of tears and will make it clear to Patrick that her husband is back in town, so that’s that.
Third, it looks like the wedding will be interrupted by someone. If you watch as all the heads turn, you’ll notice that Liz is already at the altar – you can see her white dress just behind Sam and Patrick’s heads. Will Jake make it down the aisle too and then someone interrupts with news? This is a strange sequence of events by the looks of things. Is it Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) that comes in and causes shenanigans?
On today’s show, Carly finds out that Jake is Jason thanks to Damien Spinelli’s (Bradford Anderson) high tech face rebuilding program. She’ll run off to get a DNA test to confirm his identity – she’ll have to use Michael Quartermaine (Chad Duell), Danny Morgan, or little Jake Spencer (James Nigbor) as the DNA match candidate, right? At least two of them have DNA profiles at GH thanks to medical testing.
We also know that after she gets the ID confirmation, Carly will rush off to find Jake and go missing in a silly delay tactic to further heighten the drama that’s already been heightened because we’ve all been waiting months and months (and months) for this reveal. Carly will make it to the church – we do know that – because you can clearly see her standing behind Nikolas.
But if you weren’t watching carefully, what you may not have noticed is that Carly is all bloody and bandaged. Who lets that woman drive? Remember when she “died” and came to her own funeral thanks to a car accident. Can’t Sonny hire her a driver? We must assume that in Carly’s excited haste to get to Jake with the news that she ran off the road, into a tree, off a cliff, or something else exciting.
We also know that Jake will run late to the wedding because he’s trying to find Carly – she is his best man after all. This raises some major questions. Did Jake have to give up on looking for her and head to the church and he walks down the aisle without Carly? Is a bloody and messy Carly the one who comes into the church and has every head turning in shock? Trust Carly to bring the drama!
Will Jake go check on Carly’s injuries and then she’ll whisper him the truth before they can start their vows? We do know it’s Jake himself that will make the announcement to all assembled that he’s Jason Morgan and then he’ll try to kill Nikolas. Woohoo! That’s the best part of this video. It looks like Jake likely will not know at this point just how deeply Liz is involved in her campaign of lies.
Jake may assume that Nikolas was also lying to Liz. Either way, Jake clearly blames Nikolas and decides to choke him in front of God and everyone (literally)! Nik’s muscles must be purely for decorative purposes because he doesn’t seem to stand a chance against Jake. Of course, everyone will drag them apart and the accusations will start flying about who knew what and then things will get really ugly.
However, we have to caution you. It’s doubtful that all of the action in this video will happen this week. There’s a very strange and slow process to this reveal. Jake and Liz’s wedding is supposed to be on November 1st, the day after Halloween, but this whole week will lead up to November 1st in super slow motion. Monday and Tuesday look like late on Halloween and Wednesday starts the real wedding day.
Thursday is more wedding day preparation and then the action at the church starts Friday. But as you know soap fans, Fridays are cliffhanger days. Likely the most we’ll get is Jake saying that he’s Jason and then it stopping there. But if the showrunners are really cruel, the action will stop just as all the heads turn to see who bursts into the church – and we do know they love to torment the fans.
It’s probable that a lot of the action in this video will not air until Monday when we’ll start to see the real fallout from #JasonRevealed. Stay tuned to CDL for more “General Hospital” spoilers on the big wedding day reveal and all the ripples as Liz and Nikolas’s lies are exposed and everyone in town finds out those two have been scamming them all for months!
It’s happening. #JasonRevealed this week on #GH!
