Sizzling. Together.

      1. Barbara says

        I love the person playing Jason Morgan on general hospit al Hosp.Billy Miller is awesome

  2. geneva says

    I think Jason should get back with Sam and Elizabeth should end up bye her self thats what she deairves.

    I wasn’t sure about the new Jason (Billy Miller) but I am a huge fan of General Hospital. It didn’t take me but a couple of episodes to fall in love with Jason (Billy). I think its time for Jason and Sam to get back together. I would love to see Elizabeth with Nichols. I always thought they were good together (since Emily isn’t ever coming back!) Lol
    I just love the show and everyone on it. Well…I don’t like Olivia messing with Alexis. Alexis is one of my favorites. I use to watch her on Santa Barbara back in the 80’s.

    A harsh judgement of Liz. Jake is the only one in Port Charles that hasn’t lied about something. And I say Jake because Elizabeth fell in love with Jake who turned out to be Jason while Sam always loved Jason even with the same qualities is not the same man she married. She left a happy relationship with Patrick for “what might be”. How many of us dream of doing that? How many actually do it? Both women love him, one in the present and one from the past. But after all art imitates life and he just may meet someone new.

    Today, Jan 13th, I just read that Jason Thompson now has the role of Billy Abbott. The other guys going back to GH. This article is totally wrong.

  6. julie says

    I’ve been watching general for many yrs, since Sonny came on, i love, love, Jason and sam together, they are a match madein heheaven and they just get each other, Jason needs to get his memories back and get back with Sam, for real…

  7. Stephanie says

    I always loved Jason and Sam together .I want them to be together now. I also am glad Elizabeth got found out

  8. Stephanie says

    I love Jason and Sam together and I’m glad that Elizabeth was found out

  9. Kate says

    I love Jason but if people are true fans of GH they should know no matter what Liz has always been there for Jason they never lied to one another I hate when the writers made it to where Liz started lying to jason…Elizabeth was first Jason always pushed her away then Sam came but I still think no matter what Jason and Elizabeth should still share a bond beyond the child they should be together actually just give them a real shot for once..

  10. Joan says

    Jason Thompson is the new Billy, what I want to know is where is Michael E. Knight? He is such a fabulous actor, bring him onto GH if Y&R isn’t using him, his exceptional talent needs to be used! Who’s with me on this topic, to bring Michael E Knight to GH??

  11. ChellaBella says

    Young and Restless major screw ups
    No one will ever replace Billy Miller, just like the old Abby. Give them the money they want especially because they are worth it. The new Phyllis, spot on. Good choice on that one.

  12. Carol says

    Liz slept with Zander while she and Jason were exploring being together. That’s not honest.
