First off, what does this have to do with the debate about Jason being a good father. You're going on and on about what you consider the greatness of Jasam. Then you need to know your Jasam history. Jason and Sam did not start off as friends. In fact they hated each other and Jason tried to pay her off to leave town. And Jason gave up his son because of some supposed danger that the show tried to push. And hate to break it to you but Jason has told many women over the years that he has been on the show that he loves them. You act like Sam is the only one he's told that. Although she is the only woman on the show he has been in a relationship with that he has told that he will kill her. Jasam is the reason that a lot of people are saying what the hell when it comes to Jason considering that the Jason Morgan that many of us know and have seen over the years, would never be with the woman that would do such things to a child, let alone his child. It doesn't hold true to his history at all when we have seen him in the past break up with Robin cause she simply told the truth about Michael's parentage, hunt down Faith to the point of trying to kill her because she helped AJ kidnap Michael, Kristina, and Morgan, and as of recently wanting Claudia dead because he found out that she was behind Michael's shooting. Makes Jason look like the biggest hypocrite walking to have him with Sam who did this to his child while he didn't forgive these other people for what they did to other people's children. So to even suggest Jason try to raise Jake with the woman that wanted the little boy to disappear and hired men to hold a gun on this little boy is ridiculous and I really don't see a lot of people getting behind this.
This Jason, we have on screen is not Jason Morgan. He is a shadow of his former self. The old Jason would NEVER NOT be a part of Jake's life. He would NEVER take back a woman who caused the mother, the son, & himself so much heartache... not once but several times. Not to mention the real Jason Morgan knows how to handle situation without looking like a bumbling idiot. The past 20 months ... Jason wouldnt be able to find his head if it wasnt attached.
Jason belongs with Elizabeth & Jake.... period end of story. As it is now.. he is a joke, a farce. Nothing anyone can look up to. He is quite frankly a loser... not the hero everyone could love.
I will rue the day... Jason wakes up from this walking coma he is in. And looks around & says... what the hell have I gotten myself into & how am I gonna get out of it.
In Sonny's defense, I think you have to give him points for effort with Kristina. He has tried to reach out to her & even agreed to continue going to theraphy with her to try & work through their issues, but she is corrupted by the things she listen to from those who hate her Father & the issues she has with him over being excluded from his life. What I find interesting is that the 2 kids Michael & Morgan who were raised around Sonny & spent time with him having the opportunity to know the man apart from the image of gangster, love their father without conditions. The 2 Kristina & Dante who know nothing about him other than what they have heard, read or assumed. are the ones strugglling with their perceptions & feelings about their father.
It's fine to say I can't be around my son because of the danger. But don't be a hypocrite by being a father figure to another. Or being around other children as a whole. It's the whole "I can't be with you because it's too dangerous" but let me go have sex with someone else and be with them. Jason has always been the ultimate father willing to step up for kids that aren't his. He raised Michael for a bit, was willing to step up and raise Sonny's kid with Sam, and yet never stepped up for Jake. He has always fought for what he believed in or wanted except when it comes to Elizabeth. Someday Jake is going to grow up and basically ask him "Why was I never good enough for you?" And he can spew all the danger speeches he wants but to Jake it won't matter cause the truth is he wasn't good enough to fight for only good enough to let an abusive alcoholic wannabe cop who cries about EVERYTHING raise.
Your analogy of Jason's situation is spot on and deserved to be posted again...
I just wanted to re-post your comments because they are spot on... Kudo's for this excellent analogy of how the writers have complete turned the Jason Character into a JOKE
I definitely want to see Jason get the chance to have that family he's always wanted with Elizabeth, Jake & Cam. When it looked like this show was heading in that direction, Jason was actually allowed some growth. Now it's just a cop-out that the danger is too great to be around Jake but, Jason can be around every other kid in PC. I want to see this flipped back to when characters were allowed to be mature. It's way past time for Jason to man up and claim his family of Elizabeth, Jake and Cam.
I agree with the poster (CharmingtheFlame) I just don't want Jason to be in Jakes' life.. I want Jason in Jakes' LIFE because HE NEEDS TO BE. Jason IS Jake's DAD and he should have some interaction with his son... I'm NOT interested in seeing another Sonny & Dante s/l. I want Jason to step-up and take ownership of what's his. Be A MAN in all regards. You can't always protect your children from all of lifes dangers, but you can love them and try and show them the right way. Right now, Jason is allowed to be near every child in PC except Jake what kind of message is that sending. And that's the exact message Jake will be receiving he won't accept the excuse that his mom and dad supposingly kept his true paternity a secret because of safety & love, all he'll see is that his dad loved every child in PC enough to have them in his life but not him... The writers of this show is absolutely lazy when it comes to writing for the character of Jason. Steve is such a multi-talented actor, but you all have written him to be stuck on stupid. Why can't Jason be in the mob and have a family life too (WITH ELIZABETH & THE BOYS) that's the challenge right there... This s/l would make out for all the drama and suspense that truly missing on GH.. The Jason character needs more substance now, we know he's a killing machine but with Elizabeth he's so, so much more. Give us the good girl bad boy s/l and watch it work... I don't even know why this question about Jason & Jake was even asked since the PTB won't even let Jason even "THINK" about the possibility of being with Jake... And then you wonder why your ratings are still at the bottom of the barrell 1.7's there's absolutely no reason why GH should be pulling in 1.7's EVER. AND you can't blame it on the Soap Genre dying either - just look at Y&R's ratings week after week 3.7's and GH should be neck and neck with Y&R if they stayed true to the history and foundation of the show. However, your NOT listening to what YOUR loyal fans of 25, 30+ years have been asking you for. Give us back our VETS, Give us back the real Jason Morgan, you know the one who would have NEVER, EVER took a woman back into his orbit that put two innocence children in harms way. The real Jason Morgan would have kept his promise of "I Will Kill You" and his "said" partner would be "Fish Food" Mr. Guza if your going to write the mob stuff at least try to stay as close to the truth as possible.. The Mob Loves and Honor Family, this mess you all got going on with Sonny & Jason not being able to be in the childrens lives is just hog wash... How in the world do you think the mob keeps in existence.... That's right they pass the FAMILY BUSINESS TO THEIR CHILDREN... Get It together Bob and stop writing Jason's character as a "COWARD" Jason is SUPPOSE TO BE A BAD AZZ MOB ENFORCER, so if that is indeed true, who the hell would dare want to mess with his child?? (if they valued their life) Stop writing Jason's character like a weak chicken.. If he can be around the whole population of children in Port Chuck then he dayuuum sure should be able to be around Jake... And one more thing, I thinks it's absolutely GREAT, that Vanessa Marcil will be gracing our screens again she's an awesome actress, but as the old saying goes "don't put all your eggs in one basket" I don't see Vanessa bringing GH from the ratings brink UNLESS Jason's character is fixed simutaneouly... Get Jason away from the "Child Endangerer" and viewers will start to return... "FIX JASON MORGAN"
I think Sonny has the potential to be a good father. He is a lesson in what you don't want your kids to be, and he can help them with that.
Jason and Jake are the father and son story I want to see. But only when his current bed bunny is out of his life. NO WAY can Jason in Jakes life when he is still with the woman who wanted Jake dead. Jason needs to dump that the dead weight so that he can safely be around his son. Jason needs to bond with his son and remember that he can have his dream. Elizabeth Jake and Cameron are safer with Jason than without him. Once he realizes that Jason can be truly happy with Elizabeth, Jake and Cameron and have more babies with Elizabeth.
