Is It Over For Sam & Drew? . . . . . . . . . . .
This week, GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Sam finally reveals to Drew the secret that she’s been keeping from even herself. Does this mean her marriage is over… and that she might finally reunite with Jason?
The In Depth Story: Ever since admitting to Jason that she still loves him, Sam has known she would have to update the other man in her life, husband Drew. Not that anything has really changed. “In some ways,” admits cohead-writer Shelly Altman, “Sam is even more confused than before! She knows that just saying the words out loud doesn’t change anything for her.” In other words, she’s still in love with two men!
Drew is rocked when Sam finally admits that she still has deep, unresolved feelings for Jason… and that she told her back-from-the-dead ex as much. “This is something that Drew suspected might be an issue from the moment that Jason came back into the picture,” reflects co-headwriter Chris Van Etten. “Despite that, it’s an awful lot for him to deal with.”
It’s so much, in fact, that Drew winds up walking out on Sam. That does not, however, mean the relationship is over… or that she’ll reunite with Jason. “It’s not over for any of them,” previews Altman. “Not by a long shot!”
“In some ways, Sam is even more confused than before!”
If there’s an upside for Sam, it’s that no matter which guy she chooses, she’ll probably get to stay in the penthouse.
“Jason, here’s the thing: When I said that I love you, I meant to add the word ‘too.’ Now do you get my problem?”
