Jason, Sam and Curtis are continuing their investigation into Morgan’s death. Last week they stumbled onto some major weirdness when Curtis spied Rudge paying Julian visit, Jason stole the model ship from the pawn shop and Lucas translated Chinese. The takeout bag from the restaurant that used to inhabit the pawn shop’s location says “reincarnation” on it. The model ship has the same encryption. So what exactly does that mean? Obviously someone is coming back from the dead and whoever they are is behind Julian’s strange behavior and the bomb that killed Morgan. I loved seeing Lucas back on GH again. He’s been truly missed. I hope that GH sees the value in playing him more and that his relationship with Sam is developed. Brad wants to have kids and Lucas doesn’t. That would be a good story to actually watch onscreen.
There have been some complaints by fans about the story or possible lack there of for Jasam. For me, it felt like a better part of the year was used for the writers to find their footing with the pairing. After the awkward Jakson story ended, it was inevitable that Jason and Sam would be together. But who is Jason now and what does that mean for his relationship with Sam? We got a few different answers to that question before the writers finally landed on the best answer. Jason is now a PI and family man. He’s less tied to Sonny’s world and is creating a new life with his wife. Putting Curtis, Jason and Sam together was a smart move. The trio is entertaining as heck and have a nice chemistry. I’d like to see an official partnership with Sam and Curtis opening a PI business together.
Much to Sonny’s horror, Michael and Nelle are growing closer. I find in perplexing that GH doesn’t see the value in investing in a grown-up version of Michael. Maybe that will change in 2017… Anyways, while Sonny and Carly are heading to reconciliation, Michael and Nelle’s attraction to each other has been slowly building. I don’t think Nelle planned on Michael and her becoming close but Sonny and Carly getting back together seems to be a big part of her scheme. They need to be happy and unsuspecting before she destroys them. Nelle’s motivation appears to be connected to Carly’s past because the baby rattle hiding in her music box says “Caroline” on it. Why would Nelle have Carly’s old childhood trinket? Is she somehow connected to Carly’s adoptive family?
It feels like Nelle’s story is starting to get some solid structure to it. It’s been a little hard to connect the dots in this mystery. We should have a better understanding of who Nelle is. Perhaps her box of pain should have made an appearance shortly after she turned up in Port Charles. I hope this story tightens up and moves at a better pace now. That can be said about a lot of GH really.
