Jason Morgan and Sam McCall are one crazy, mixed up couple. Over the years their lives have been filled with one adventure after another. In the beginning they had a typical love hate relationship. Neither could stand the other. Next the relationship developed into friends and finally the friendship blossomed into love.
Considering the history between Jason’ family, the Quartermaines, and Sam’s family, the Cassadines, it’s amazing the two ever got together.
Something the pair has in common is the fact they are both adrenaline junkies. Some of their exploits include their first meeting in a police station where both had been arrested for aiding Sonny Corinthos. Then several times they were on the run from police, once when Sam was framed for kidnapping. Another time the pair ran with Michael Corinthos to protect him from the charge of murder.
Whenever there was danger Sam and Jason knew they could depend totally on each other. When there is action Sam is able to hold her own along side Jason.
Jason proposes and Sam accepts and they get engaged in July 2011. Wedding plans are hectic and Sam becomes overwhelmed. Adding to the stress, during this period Jason is in hospital requiring surgery for a brain injury sustained in an accident.
Jason recovers and is released and he and Sam go for a days outing. Finally in September 2011 Sam and Jason marry in the garden of a Chinese restaurant foregoing the original plans for a big wedding. The next day they have their wedding reception at the church after telling everyone they are already married.
In January 2012 Sam confirms she is pregnant. Big question is who is the father Jason or Franco. They are told DNA tests show Franco is the father. Sam and Jason are heartbroken.
To give Jason time to think whether he can love the baby as his own Sam moves from the penthouse to a motel. There she is kidnapped along with Lulu by Detective Dimemstico. She is rescued by McBain. While in danger she realizes she will love her baby no matter which man is its father.
Jason comes to realize he can accept the baby and sets off to find Sam. Meantime, Sam goes into labor but is unable to make it to the hospital because of the weather. The healthy boy is born at the motel with McBain’s help.
McBain goes for a car to take Sam to the hospital and is worked over by thugs. When he doesn’t return Sam tries to find a way to the hospital herself but passes out. Meanwhile she had placed her son in a planter on the porch for safekeeping.
Todd hears a baby crying and goes to investigate. Tea Dellgado also comes onto the porch. She sees Todd with the baby and thanks him for saving him. Todd can’t tell Tea her baby was dead so he replaces Sam’s live baby with Tea’s dead one.
Jason finds the dead baby and tells Sam the child was stillborn. Sam does not believe him and insists her baby is alive.
Is Sam’s baby alive? Does she recover him? Is Franco truly the baby’s father? What happens between Sam and Jason?
These are all questions I’m sure fans of General Hospital can answer in a heartbeat.
