At long last,

GEN­ERAL HOSPI­TAL’s Ja­son and Sam seem to be head­ing to­ward a re­union. And while they’re de­ter­mined to take things at their own pace, what hap­pens this week might just help speed things up!

Will Sam Risk It All?

Ever since Ja­son re­turned to re­claim his life, he and Sam have been cir­cling one an­other cau­tiously. But time and again, ob­sta­cles have stood be­tween them. So what’s hold­ing them back now? In part, her de­sire to be re­spect­ful of ex-hus­band Drew, who is hav­ing a dif­fi­cult time deal­ing with son Os­car’s sit­u­a­tion.

“That cer­tainly plays into how Sam is feel­ing,” agrees co-head­writer Shelly Alt­man. “But the other rea­son is that Sam went through a hell of a lot of trauma when she lost Ja­son the last time, and she’s un­der­stand­ably wary about it hap­pen­ing again.

“To love is to risk loss,” con­tin­ues Alt­man. Although Sam clearly loves Ja­son, she has to take into ac­count the fact that she is now rais­ing two chil­dren. Plus, while liv­ing with Drew’s ver­sion of Ja­son, she got a glimpse into a life free of the dan­gers which have long dogged Stone Cold. “She’s not sure she can put her­self through the pain of los­ing him and what they had again!”

Drawn To­gether

Ul­ti­mately, Ja­son and Sam may have no choice in the mat­ter. “De­spite fight­ing against what their hearts may feel,” says co-head­writer Chris Van Et­ten, “some­thing keeps draw­ing them to­gether.”

This week, fate in­ter­venes to give the pair a nudge. “As we head to­ward Thanks­giv­ing, cir­cum­stances force Ja­son and Sam to pull to­gether in a close sit­u­a­tion,” says Alt­man. “Af­ter that, who knows what might hap­pen!”
