A TWIST OF FATE!
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!”
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!”
