Brace yourselves. I’m about to give Jason Morgan a virtual HIGH FIVE, BROTHER and that is not a thing that has happened a lot lately:
ELIZABETH: Ewen pulled me out of the water the night Lisa Niles was killed. And he didn’t tell me about it until months later.
JASON: Wait–wait. You almost drowned, and he left you there on the beach?
ELIZABETH: He got me breathing and said I was going to be okay–
JASON: If you found somebody in the water, wouldn’t you call for help or take somebody inside or at least put a blanket on them?
ELIZABETH: He had a patient. He said… he had a patient.
JASON: Oh, okay, what about an anonymous 911 call?
ELIZABETH: Okay, I know, I know. But this doesn’t matter because Spinelli showed up, he took me to the hospital and everything was fine.
JASON: No, it does matter. Why keep it a secret? Unless Dr. Keenan didn’t want you to know he was out at Wyndemere.
ELIZABETH: He told me his mother said it was bad manners to take credit for a good deed.
JASON: [epic WTF face]
I mean, right? WE ARE ON THE SAME WAVELENGTH HERE. I love snarky Jason! He would totally have fit in as a guest writer on the blog a few months ago.
But wait, there’s more!
ELIZABETH: The night I checked myself into Shadybrooke? I thought he was a fellow patient and not the doctor who was supposed to be treating me.
JASON: [beautifully dubious expression] Isn’t it important for you to know that?
ME: RIGHT? RIGHT?
So, finally! Just when I thought we were all going to wipe our hands and pretend it never happened, Dr. Ewen McSketchypants’ SUPER SKETCHY BEHAVIOR is getting the reaction it deserves.
And how much do I love that Jason and Elizabeth are back in true friends mode, all confiding and supportive and gossipy? SO MUCH. I don’t even think Elizabeth was trying to make Jason jealous in those scenes. She has truly decided to give Ewen a chance, but of course now Jason is honestly (and rightly) concerned and it give me all the FEELS, guys, it really does.
Which is good timing, because Jerry Jacks is not only not dead (shocker!) but working with Ewen as the mastermind behind Robin’s “death”! And he’s already making not-so-veiled threats against Jason and Elizabeth both, which I can only assume means things I will enjoy are probably coming soon.
It’s strange, because not too long ago, I would have greeted the prospect of Jerry taking another Evil Tour of Evil around Port Charles with, um… slightly less enthusiasm. But given how stellar things have been lately, I’m kind of curious to see what the new team can do with him. Plus, this show has already proven that all Australians know each other, so who else could possibly be pulling Ewen’s strings?
(Well, I still have hope for Faison or some other 80s villain’s involvement. Super villain team up! But this will do for now.)
And with Jerry back, word on the street says that Jax can’t be far behind. I would really, really, really like it if RC cleaned up that whole “Jax had to abandon his daughter because Sonny will kill him on sight because he gave his ex-wife a lift out of town” thing. Seriously. Dear writers: I don’t care if Ingo Rademacher isn’t staying on long term. Let’s not create another Felicia “I’m suddenly a deadbeat because the writers were too lazy to throw in a line about off-screen visits now and then” Jones. Capiche?
In other news, Jerry’s not the only welcome arrival in town. My BFF, John McBain, is baaaaaaack!
And, I hate to say it, because you know little cartoon hearts pretty much pop up around his head whenever I see him, but he was kind of a self righteous dick for a man who just got caught with his tongue down another woman’s mouth, you know? I mean, not that Todd is in any position to throw morality stones or anything. But seriously, John. It’s not like Todd faked that picture. You gotta own that shit!
(Also: dear Sam, kissing is cheating. Especially kissing that hot.)
BUT LOOK HOW PRETTY
Oh, whatever, I just want those crazy kids to make it work somehow. Cheat like the wind, my sexy butterflies!
