General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Jason (Billy Miller) will rev up his efforts to build a new life with Sam (Kelly Monaco) while Patient Six (Steve Burton) tries to get back his old one. The Jasons seem to have the same memories, but we’re already seeing differences in how those memories are depicted. It’s looking more and more like Burton’s character is the real Jason Morgan.
If that bombshell is indeed confirmed down the road, current Jason would be revealed as Drew. New “JaSam” fans are freaking out about that possibility, but perhaps this could actually be a good thing. There are certainly some advantages to taking this route. Here are three reasons why Billy Miller is better off as Drew.
1. Great acting opportunities
So far, the twin storyline has been pretty much all about Burton’s character. That’s understandable since Burton just returned to General Hospital. However, the story would continue to be all about Burton’s character if he turned out to be Jason’s twin. The next phase of this plot should focus on the identity crisis Drew will face.
In other words, the only way Miller’s going to get in on the action is if he’s poor Drew. Since this is a tale of two Jasons, both should be highlighted. Miller could get a stellar Emmy reel out of this. He would undoubtedly knock the Drew angle out of the park.
2. Sam’s love becomes more powerful
GH always portrays Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason as soul mates who found their way back to each other. Of course, a soul mate isn’t necessarily the same as the true love of your life. If Sam learns Miller’s Jason is actually Drew, it would give her a chance to choose him.
The decision wouldn’t be about history or even destiny. It would just be about two people who are hopelessly devoted to each other and can’t bear to be apart. The idea of Sam following her heart and picking Drew seems awfully romantic. Their bond could become even more powerful.
3. It explains a lot
There have obviously been differences in Burton’s Jason and Miller’s Jason. That’s to be expected with a recast. Bringing someone new in always results in a fresh spin on a character. Still, Jason’s loved ones have been mentioning those differences more often lately.
Revealing current Jason as Drew would explain a lot. General Hospital wants to make this as logical as possible. Why not let everything line up and make sense? It would make this GH storyline quite satisfying.
