Jason Morgan is a fictional character on the ABC soap opera, General Hospital and has appeared on its SOAPnet spin-off series, General Hospital: Night Shift. He is the son of the late, Dr. Alan Quartermaine and his late mistress, Susan Moore and the adoptive son of Dr. Monica Quartermaine.
The role was originated on November 11, 1981, by Quinn Carlson until June 3, 1982. Child actor Bryan Beck stepped into the role on September 8, 1982 to 1986. Actor Carmel Fainbaum played Jason as a baby in 2012.
He is one of the longest-running characters on the show, having been played by various actors since the character's first appearance in 1982. The role was most notably played by Emmy award winning Steve Burton from 1991-2012. It was announced, on September 2, 2014, that Billy Miller would be Burton's replacement.
On December 19, 1991, Burton stepped into the role on a contractual basis as a SORASed Jason Quartermaine. In November 1999, ABC confirmed that Burton had decided not to renew his contract which expired in December to pursue other opportunities. Burton last appeared on contract on January 27, 2000. In June 2000, ABC confirmed that Burton would reprise his role for a six week stint starting on August 25, 2000 last appeared that fall. In December 2000, it was announced that Burton would return to the series once again and began airing on January 29, 2001.
In January 2001, Burton announced that his return was only temporary due to his commitment to film a pilot for his DreamWorks Television development deal. Whether he returned to the role full-time would depend on whether the series was picked up. The pilot was not picked up, Burton landed a role in a major motion picture leading to his departure on April 29, 2001. Burton returned to the series on contract in 2002 during May Sweeps.
In late 2008, Burton's contract expired and forcing to make a decision on re-signing with the show. After months of speculation, he announced in a public appearance that he re-signed with the show. Burton stated that he would be willing to take a pay cut because he understands that money is a lot tighter now than it has been in recent years and stated that he is blessed to have a job right now.
In 2011, rumors began circulating that Burton could depart from the series due to contract negotiations. However, in May 2011 Burton announced via Twitter that he had re-signed with the series again. On August 23, 2012, Jamey Giddens of the website Daytime Confidential reported that contract negotiations were not going well and Burton was close to walking away from the series. On August 28, 2012, Burton confirmed in an interview with TV Guide's Michael Logan that he would exit the series and agreed to stay long enough for the producers to write his character out properly.
His last appearance was October 30, 2012.
During his time as Jason, Burton was nominated for a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actor in 1997, won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in 1998, was nominated for a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in 2000 and was nominated for a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in 2005.
On September 2, 2014, after months of speculation, executive producer Frank Valentini announced on Twitter that actor, Billy Miller, formerly known for his roles on All My Children as Richie Novak (2007-08) and The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott (2008-14), would join the cast as Jason.
Miller is a three-time Daytime Emmy award winning actor. He won twice for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in 2010 and 2013 and once for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series in 2014, all for his work on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott.

Jason was conceived out of his father, Alan's, affair with Susan Moore. When Jason was born, Alan supported him financially, but was fighting for custody over his other son A.J. Jason lived with his mother and step-father Scott Baldwin up until her death. He briefly lived with Susan's aunt, Alice Grant until Alan came to get him. Then he moved into the Quartermaine mansion with Alan and Monica. Monica was initially displeased at having her husband's illegitimate offspring in the house, but eventually came to love Jason as her own, and adopted him. Jason and A.J. were raised in the Quartermaine mansion, until they were sent off to a boarding school in Switzerland as children.
Damian Spinelli is one of Jason's closest friend
He has a son named, Danny, who was born in June of 2012, with his now ex-wife/current girlfriend, Sam Morgan. Danny was also presumed dead after being switched at birth with a deceased baby but was reunited with his parents in October 2012.
He also has a son named, Jake, who was born in May of 2007, through a one night stand with his now ex-fiancée, Nurse Elizabeth Webber. In 2011, it was believed that Jake had died in a hit-in-run caused by his legal paternal-grandfather, Luke Spencer, but after 4 years, on July 6, 2015, Jake is revealed to be alive and on Cassadine Island with Helena. Soon after, Jake was reunited with his parents.
In October 2012, Jason was presumed dead when he was shot in the back by Cesar Faison, who was masquerading as Duke Lavery. In 2014, Jason came back as an amnesiac calling himself Jake Doe after being hit by a car.
In November 2015, he finds out from Carly that he's really Jason, although he still has no memory of his life with Sam or anything from before his accident in 2014. During his time as Jake, he fell in love with and became engaged to Elizabeth. Before finding out that Elizabeth knew who he was before he did, Jason asks Sam for a divorce and she agrees. After the whole truth came out, the divorce was put on hold as the two were growing closer.
On March 17, 2016, Sam asked Jason for a divorce so that they could start over with no pressure to which Jason agreed. It was also revealed that they had the papers drawn up months ago with a custody agreement for Danny (shared custody) and all they had to do was sign. On March 22, they signed their divorce papers and Alexis pronounced them divorced and they are now free to just date. On May 9, 2016, Jason got his memories back.
Personality and traits
Originally a bright and ethical teenager whose main ambition in life was to become a doctor, the character would be revamped into a organized crime family enforcer and hitman in the Corinthos Crime Family, after sustaining a massive head injury that resulted in permanent brain damage and substantial memory loss. Prior to the car accident, Jason was depicted as a kind-hearted and affable young man. Since then, however, Jason has been largely depicted as taciturn and largely emotionless, and has largely severed his ties with the Quartermaine family. However, Jason is quite a complex character and has his own set of morals. Even after his accident, Jason displayed several acts of compassion and love, comforting Robin after the death of Stone and helping her to realize that she could live a normal life with HIV.
Though no longer romantically involved, the two remain good friends to this day. Despite his high-ranking position in the Corinthos mob, Jason is somewhat of a vigilante and has often helped to bring down criminals worse than he and Sonny. He frequently displays loyalty and compassion to his loved ones and friends, and can be roused to phenomenal fury whenever they, especially his longtime lover Sam McCall, are harmed or endangered; for example, he yelled at and manhandled Alexis Davis when her actions caused the stillbirth of Sam's daughter. Additionally, upon discovering that Sam had been terrorizing Elizabeth Webber since she discovered that Jason was Jake's biological father, Jason was outraged and threatened Sam's life if she tried anything again.
He has a great deal of kindness and affection towards Sonny's children: Michael, Kristina and Morgan. He has also shown to care a great deal for Molly Lansing-Davis despite his history of enmity with her father, Ric Lansing. Because of the circumstances of Michael's upbringing, Jason has vowed never to get children involved in the mob again; when Molly approached him and requested that he kill Warren Bauer when he began to harass the Davis family, Jason turned her down for that exact reason and told her that she shouldn't try to get involved with the mob because she was "too good."
Jason is also surprisingly perceptive and shows an impressive deductive streak; for example, when Kristina was beaten and hospitalized by her boyfriend, Kiefer and told everyone that Ethan Lovett was her attacker, Jason was the first to realize she was lying when nearly everyone else in Port Charles, including Kristina's own parents, were completely fooled.
When Jason and A.J. returned from boarding school, Jason, who was a successful student and athlete, was treated as the family favorite while A.J. was failing and dealing with alcoholism. Jason had relationships with Karen Wexler, Brenda Barrett, and Keesha Ward, who A.J. also loved. Jason had supported Monica through her health crisis and adored his adoptive sister, Emily Quartermaine. In December 1995, an intoxicated A.J. ran his car into a tree. Jason, who had been attempting to stop A.J. from driving, was in the passenger seat and hit his head on a large boulder after being ejected from the car.
To spare A.J., his cousin Ned Ashton claimed responsibility for the accident. Jason suffered brain injuries that resulted in total memory loss. Upon waking up from his coma, Jason had no recollection of his past and resented all the Quartermaines except his grandmother and Emily. He moved out of the Quartermaine Mansion and changed his last name to Morgan, to honor his grandmother, Lila Morgan Quartermaine. He became Sonny Corinthos' enforcer in his mob business and began to date Robin Scorpio. Due to the fact that Robin was HIV-positive, Jason began to sleep with Carly Roberts but Jason chose to be with Robin instead. Jason and Carly still remained friends. Jason, working for Sonny, discovered that drugs were being imported, which caused his sister, Emily to collapse. Due to the fact that the mob was too much for Robin, the couple split up but Jason held a promise never to be romantically involved with Carly.
To help Carly, Jason pretended to be the father of her baby so that neither of the two men that she slept with could take her baby away. Robin returned to Port Charles and Jason confessed that the child was A.J.'s according to a paternity test but would still like to be the child's father until Carly can take care of her son.Jason and Robin reunited and made love for the first time. After Robin was almost killed in an explosion, Jason left the mob. Carly was released from the hospital and began to put a strain on Jason and Robin's relationship. Robin told AJ that he was Michael's father in an attempt to free Jason and the baby from Carly. This sent Carly into depression and she left town. Jason and Michael bonded over this time but Jason temporarily lost custody of Michael. AJ and Carly married, and a judge awarded joint custody to Jason, Carly, and AJ. Jason feared his hatred of AJ would hurt Michael and signed away all his rights. He remained a big part of Michael's life and they are very close. Jason began comforting Elizabeth Webber over the death of her boyfriend. Carly misunderstood their relationship and slept with Sonny. Jason was unable to deal with the betrayal of Sonny and Carly, and left town. Sonny and Carly began a real relationship, which Jason eventually accepted.
Jason was forced to protect Sonny's sister, Courtney Matthews, when she was being stalked by A.J. Quartermaine. Jason and Courtney began a relationship which they had to keep secret, fearing Carly and Sonny's disapproval. Carly was overjoyed once discovering. After Luis Alcazar was murdered, Brenda and Jason became the prime suspects and were forced to wed to refrain from testifying against each other they divorced soon after, and Sonny discovered Courtney and Jason's affair which led to him firing Jason. Sonny eventually gave his approval and Courtney and Jason became engaged. However, on the night of their wedding, their best friend Carly was kidnapped. Courtney was pregnant, but lost the baby when trying to escape from Lorenzo Alcazar. Eventually, she and Jason married in France but due to the mob lifestyle, they divorced.
Jason and Sam McCall were arrested for aiding and abetting Sonny. Jason offered her a million dollars to leave town when he discovered that Sonny and Sam had had an affair while he was married to Carly. Sam refused and moved in with Sonny. Sonny and Carly reconciled, but Jason discovered that Sam was pregnant with Sonny's child. Jason prevented her from having an abortion and when she was planning on leaving town, Jason convinced her to stay, with Jason pretending to be the father of Sam's baby in order to protect Sonny and Carly's reconciliation. Sam moved into the penthouse with Jason althought the two have tension over their predicatment they begin a friendship. Jason convinces Sam that they should marry to make everyone believe they are having this baby and although they did make it to the altar, their wedding did not go through.
When Sam's violent ex-boyfriend attempts to kidnap her, Jason rescues her. When it is believed that she was responsible for burning down her mother's house and killing her, Jason discovers that Sam is protecting her disabled brother Danny who was actually responsible. Jason has Danny sent to a school out of state to protect him. When Sonny and Alexis Davis' daughter Kristina is ill, Sam is asked to provide the stem cells but before she could come to that decision she gives birth to a stillborn baby girl which Jason gets to hold. Jason is there when she awakes and is forced to tell her that her baby died. Jason and Sam return to the penthouse and mourn the death of the child that would have been theirs. Jason and Sam share their first kiss after his sister Emily's wedding. After their second kiss they agree to just be friends only and Sam leaves the penthouse. Eventually Jason asks her to return and live with him. Sam asks Jason to help her raise a little girl she has been given custody of, and although they make an initial attempt at gaining full custody, it falls through and Sam leaves Jason in hurt and anger. When Sonny's daughter Kristina is discovered missing, Jason is shot in the belly attempting to rescue Sam who was accused of the kidnapping. When all three of Sonny's children were eventually kidnapped, Jason and Sam worked together to discover that A.J. Quartermaine and Faith Rosco were the kidnappers. When Michael was believed to be killed Sam helped Jason discover he was still alive and being brainwashed by his father A.J.. Jason and Sam worked together to help Michael get the psychiatric care he needed in the aftermath of his kidnapping, however Jason learned that the doctor treating Michael was the same doctor who treated him after he awoke from his accident years earlier.
Jason takes an experimental drug which helps him remember Dr. Asher Thomas tried to kill him on A.J.'s orders. After Jason lost his memory again, Jason fell in love with Sam again and they move to Hawaii when Jason decides he wants nothing to do with his old mob life. Jason and Sam are forced to return to Port Charles when the Ruiz family vows revenge on Jason. In late November 2005, after weeks of debilitating pain, Sam convinced Jason to go on an experimental drug that Robin Scorpio founded that would help him regain his memory. The drug worked but this caused a brain aneurysm and they moved back to Hawaii where they planned to spend the last days of Jason's life. Although Jason initially refuses, Robin and Patrick Drake operate on him saving his life, when he comes to the decision that he wants to live in order to stay with Sam.
Jason and Sam later discover that Sam's mother is Alexis Davis. Although Sam and Jason wanted to have children, she was shot with a bullet meant for Jason, resulting in her inability to become pregnant again. Due to his guilt and under the influence of her new mother, Jason broke up with Sam in the hospital when she woke up from her coma. After months of hurt and rejection, Sam slept with her mother's husband, Ric Lansing, to cause her mother grief but Jason discovered them instead. Jason slept with Elizabeth Spencer, which resulted in a pregnancy. Jason and Sam admit their infidelity to one another and agree to work on their relationship when it is later discovered that Elizabeth is pregnant. Eventually a DNA test is completed and all believe the baby to be Elizabeth and her husband Lucky Spencer's child. Jason and Sam reunite and attempt to try for their baby. Jason also had to come to terms with Sonny dating his sister, Emily. The relationship drove a wedge between Jason and Sonny, and Jason took over Sonny's business entirely without Sonny's consent. This resulted in a fist fight between the two that a teary-eyed Emily had to break up. Jason's estranged father Alan died in early 2007 during the Metro Court hostage crisis, just as they were beginning to rebuild their relationship. Jason took his death hard, and privately confided to Monica during the memorial service that he had flashes of good childhood memories of Alan and that he regretted all the years he pushed him away.
Elizabeth gives birth to a son, Jacob Martin Spencer, in May 2007. Jason had recently discovered that the baby was his son, but they agreed to let Lucky believe he was the father in order to protect their child from the mob. Jason lies to Sam about the baby's paternity pulling away from her emotionally, but when she discovers their lies she spirals out of control. When Sam watches and says nothing when she sees Jason and Elizabeth's son, Jake, being kidnapped. Jason and Sam's relationship ends, and Jason recovers his son with the help of Amelia Joffe. Jason and Elizabeth admit their love as her marriage dissolves. Jason reveals Jake's paternity to Lucky at the Black and White Ball. Lucky and Sam agree to keep the secret, and Elizabeth and Jason begin to meet secretly. They become engaged but on the same day of their engagement, Michael is shot, and Jason ends their engagement. A war with the rival Russian mob began to escalate in November 2008. Jason agrees when Lucky proposes sending Elizabeth, the boys, and Sam, to hide in a cabin in the woods. During a shootout with Russians who had followed the women to the cabin, Jake is kidnapped once again. Sam goes with Jason to search for Jake, where she rescues Jake and they return him safely to Elizabeth. Jason and Elizabeth once again vow to never see each other again for the safety of the boys.
Jason denies Sonny access to the organization when he wants it back. In order to regain his power, Sonny becomes head of the Zacchara organization by marrying Claudia Corinthos. Jason is later offered a blanket of immunity by Agent Rayner if he informs him on Sonny Corinthos and Anthony Zacchara's business but he refuses to give up Sonny. After Spinelli was set up by a geeky undercover agent named Winifred Leeds, he was arrested for his illegal activity. Jason is forced to agree to Rayner's deal to gain Spinelli's freedom. Jason asks Sonny to quit working with the Zaccharas, but Sonny refuses. Spinelli is freed from the FBI's hold when Sam, with the help of Winifred, destroys all the evidence against him. Jason and Sonny reconcile, and Jason is more than happy to give Sonny back the business. In May 2009, his nephew Michael Corinthos wakes up from his year-long coma, but due to brain damage he is now an aggressive 17-year-old. Jason refuses to allow Michael's request to join his father's business and agrees with Carly that Michael should live at the Quartermaine Mansion for his own good. Jason resumes a friendship with Sam, who has partnered with Spinelli in her quest to start a private investigation firm.
Jason depends on Sam's skills to help him with an issue involving Dominic Pirelli, a new mob soldier who was trying to make his way into Sonny's organization. When Michael and Kristina run away because both teenagers each believed themselves to be the driver responsible for Claudia's car accident that resulted in the loss of her unborn baby, Jason and Sam take off to Mexico after them, recapturing some of their former closeness along the way. A resurfaced Jerry Jacks manages to capture Sam, luring Jason into a trap. During the ensuing shootout, Jason is pinned beneath a pile of rubble and Jerry taunts Jason with lies about Claudia's innocence before shooting him twice and leaving him for dead. Sam escapes and returns just in time to rescue Jason and nurse him back to health, and then they make love. On August 28, 2009, Jason and Sam find Michael and Kristina in Cancun, Mexico, and bring them back to Port Charles a few days later. Jason tells Sonny about his altercation with Jerry and about Jerry's claims of Claudia's innocence in Michael's shooting.
Despite their denials, Jason and Sam's renewed closeness is apparent to everyone, especially after they are caught kissing by Maxie and Spinelli. Jason is given a lecture from both Carly and Maxie on how he should treat Sam if he wishes to stay with her. Jason listens to Carly's advice and refuses to let Sam back out of going to the carnival with him. The carnival takes a chaotic turn when Jason's grandfather Edward Quartermaine has a drug-induced heart attack and passes out behind the wheel, plunging his car down the carnival midway. Jake is injured at the carnival, and Jason turns to Sam for comfort and reassurance multiple times during this ordeal. While at the hospital, Jason witnesses Nikolas and Liz kissing, and ends up at Sam's apartment where he reveals that he missed their closeness. After some initial reservations on Sam's part they end up making love again at his penthouse. Believing themselves to be alone, they are caught by surprise the next morning when they come downstairs in each other's arms only to find Spinelli and Maxie's wedding party planners in the living room.
In October 2009, Jason and Sam find evidence that Claudia orchestrated Michael's shooting over a year ago. Jason then goes to Sonny's office to tell him about what he's discovered and asks Sonny what he want's to do about it. Sonny it seems in a state of shock doesn't say much and leaves heading to Claudia's birthday party at the Metro Court Hotel. At the birthday party Sonny publically rips Claudia to shreds about what she did to Michael and attempts to have his bodyguard's get rid of her. In defence, Claudia kidnaps Carly at gunpoint who goes in to labor with her baby. Michael who was supposed to be leaving town, comes across a nearby cabin where Claudia's stealing Carly's newborn daughter, so he grabs an axe and bludgeons her to death. Jason then finds them and after he see's what happened he takes the necessary steps to cover up the murder.
In November, Jason is tormented by an artist named Franco who is interested in causing Jason's downfall. In January 2010, Franco kidnaps Lulu and Sam and straps them both to bomb, placing them on the opposite side of Port Charles. Jason saves Sam while Dominic saves Lulu. Franco leaves town soon after. Jason and Lulu are named godparents to Carly's daughter, Josslyn Jacks, on January 29, 2010. On that same day, Dominic is revealed to a be an undercover cop named Dante Falconeri, who is also Sonny's son. Although Jason wishes Dante was dead, Sonny asks him not to kill him. When Sonny is arrested for Claudia's murder, Jason moves Michael over to Sonny's island to prevent Michael from confessing.
When Kristina is abused and hospitalized by her boyfriend Kiefer Bauer, Jason is the first to see through her lies to protect him and convinces Dante and Lucky to investigate further. Eventually, Kiefer's abusive nature, and thus the truth about Kristina's attacks, becomes public knowledge after he beats her a second time; however, Alexis accidentally hits Kiefer with her car and kills him while taking Kristina to the hospital that same night, causing his father, Warren Bauer, to become obsessed with getting revenge on Kristina and Alexis. In response, Jason is approached by Molly, who desperately begs him to "make Mr. Bauer disappear." Jason turns her down, explaining that he doesn't want to get children involved in the mob after what happened to Michael.
Sonny is put on trial for his alleged role in Claudia's death, and the prosecutor, Claire Walsh, does everything in her power to ensure that Sonny is convicted, going so far as to make Johnny Zacchara falsely testify that Sonny routinely physically abused Claudia and force Morgan Corinthos onto the stand. However, just as the jury is about to reach a verdict, Dante enters the courtroom and surrenders Michael as Claudia's true killer. Once Dante's allegations are proven, the judge unfairly sentences Michael to five years in Pentonville State Prison as a message to Sonny and Carly, leaving everyone present shocked and upset. On May 20, in order to protect Michael, Jason makes a deal with Claire and is sent to Pentonville as well. Jason was regularly visited by Sam, who at one point posed as his ex-wife, Brenda Barrett, in order to get a conjugal visit. He is also visited by Alexis for advice on how to handle the increasingly rebellious Kristina, who is now in a relationship with Johnny (it is later revealed that Kristina was only pretending to date Johnny to spite Sonny). Dante, Claire, and Jax, guilt-ridden over their roles in Michael's incarceration, eventually convince the judge to release Michael on parole, while Jason remains in Pentonville.
On June 30, Franco returns to Port Charles with the intent to resume his feud with Jason; in response, Jason makes a deal with Dante and Claire and is released from Pentonville to draw Franco out of hiding. In July, Jason and Dante go to L.A. to find Franco. In late July/early August, they had thought that Franco had died (from his fall off the roof), but it was someone else. Franco revels that he had Carter beat and 'mess' up Michael. Franco also has a nurse named "J. Morgan" take Aiden Cassadine, the newborn son of Elizabeth and Lucky Spencer, because he had the number 66 on his ID bracelet. Franco was obsessed with the number 66 and wanted his mom to have the "perfect" son. Aiden is found and returned to Elizabeth by Lucky. Franco eventually escapes, and Jason is sent back to prison only to be released a few weeks later after Sonny and Claire find a loophole in his plea bargain.
On September 16, 2010, Jason went to Rome, to serve as a bodyguard to help protect Brenda from the Balkan. This is the first time they have seen each other since she went back to Paris in early 2003. Jason and Brenda return to Port Charles in late September. Brenda moved into the Penthouse with him because it was the best way to protect her from the Balkan. Jason's relationship with Brenda is that of a love/hate or brother/sister relationship. Jason finds her irritating and a pain in the ass, and Brenda finds his unemotional facade aggravating. With Brenda living with Jason, he and Sam barely get to spend anytime together. He briefly asks Sam to move in but she says no saying that it is not right timing. Jason and Sam continue to work on protecting Brenda and finding out the identity of the Balkan. During this storyline Michael finally admits to Jason that he was raped by Carter in prison which hits Jason really hard.
In early 2011, Sam finds out that there is a fertility construction surgery and she thinks this might give her the possibility of having a baby. She and Jason discuss the possibility of her having the surgery. They soon agree that their lifestyle's are not the best for raising kids. At one point she even thinks she is pregnant but results prove that she is not. Jason and Sam discovered that Brenda's defense attorney, Theo Hoffman, was the Balkan, and immediately went out to stop him; in the process, Jason was caught in an ambush and barely escaped. After the reception, Brenda was seemingly killed in a car bomb. When the authorities managed to get through the wreckage, everybody was shocked to discover that Sam was in the limo, with no sign of Brenda. Fortunately, due to bomb-proofing, Sam survived the explosion with only a concussion and temporary hearing loss. Though it was believed that the Balkan was the one who planted the bomb, Jason received a call from the newly returned Franco, who hinted that he was the one who planted the bomb.
In the meantime, Jason interrogates Shawn Butler, a mercenary who had previously worked for Theo, for information. Shawn insists that he does not know where Theo and Brenda are and he wants Theo taken down just as badly as they do, but Jason does not believe him. Shawn says that he has access to records on Theo that may help them, but they are contained in a biometric lock that only he can bypass. After much persuasion, Jason agrees to let Shawn get the information, and also asks him to check the records to see if Theo has any connection with Franco. Later, Jason discovers from Michael that he had gone after an assassin hired by Theo to kill Shawn and apprehended him with Dante's help. Jason is anything but pleased that Michael risked breaking his parole and got "too close to the business," only for Michael to snap and shout that he wants to help and is sick of people not believing in him. Jason explains that he gave up a lot of choices when he went to work for Sonny, revealing that he is Jake Webber's biological father, and tells Michael that he merely doesn't want him to make the same mistake.
Eventually, Jason, Sonny, and Dante manage to track down Brenda, finding her near-death after being injected with a neurotoxin. Sonny rushes her to the hospital while Jason and Dante attempt to stop Theo, who escapes. Jason and Dante quickly begin to butt heads over their differing opinions regarding apprehending Theo; Jason is perfectly willing to kill him for hurting Sam, while Dante is determined to arrest Theo despite Jason's insistence that Theo, being a lawyer, would easily find a way out of it. While Brenda is recovering in the hospital, Jason has Spinelli surf the Web to find out if Theo has any connections in Port Charles, discovering that he did indeed have one with a family aligned to the Corinthos organization. Jason immediately departs, vowing that anyone who hurts Sam needs to be dealt with. In the ensuing confrontation, Theo's contact insists that he has no idea where the Balkan is now, and explains to Jason that he put Theo in contact with Johnny Zacchara. The contact declares that it was a mistake to help Theo and doesn't do business with people who attack women. Jason immediately confronts Johnny, who insists that he had no idea that Theo was targeting Brenda and had nothing to do with Sam's kidnapping. However, Johnny does admit that he lent some muscle to Theo and killed the man who was following Sam. Johnny even declares that he could have easily killed Jason too, and for that, Jason owes him a life debt.
On March 18, 2011, Jason's son, Jake runs out his mother's house, into the street and gets hit by a car. Jake is rushed to the hospital, and Patrick and Robin Drake operate on him to try and save his life, but there was just too much damage, and Jake dies on the operating table as Jason watches from the observation window. Jason later had to break the news to Lucky, who then went and broke the news of Jake's death to Elizabeth. Carly, who was also at the hospital because her daughter Josslyn had just been diagnosed with kidney cancer, found Jason at the hospital rooftop and told him of Josslyn's illness. She felt horrible for Jason's loss, but wanted him to consider donating Jake's kidneys to Josslyn in order to save her daughter's life. Jason approached Elizabeth about helping Carly, but Elizabeth was furious at first and didn't want to hear it. Later after some convincing from Lucky, Liz and Lucky made the decision together to give Jake's kidneys to Josslyn and donate the rest of his organs. Josslyn was taken into surgery and made a full recovery.
Jason continues to grieve over the loss of Jake while also dealing with Luke Spencer, who was revealed as the person who hit Jake with his car and was determined to have Jason kill him. Jason later discovers the extent of Carly and Jax's marital problems, and that Jax is trying to take Josslyn away from Carly. He begins to help Carly keep Josslyn when she gets into a custody battle with Jax and has Spinelli dig up dirt on Jax. During a trial recess, Jason, Sonny, and Carly realize that Jax bribed Grace Yang, the mediator, to falsely paint Carly as unfit. Sonny subsequently goes behind Carly's back and blackmails Grace into framing Jax in a hotel room for her attempted assault after drugging him and planting illegal narcotics in the room. As a result of this incident, the judge gave Carly full custody of Josslyn. The custody battle concluded and Jason re-focused on his life with Sam. He and Sam realized you can't protect a child by giving them away. Sam has a fertility reconstruction procedure, and the results are successful. Sam will be able to have children again. Jason also comes to realize that he never wants to live without Sam, and on July 21, 2011, Jason proposes to Sam, and she accepts.
Carly comes by when Jason and Sam are planning their wedding, asking for Jason's help to stop Jax from taking Josslyn. On their way to Carly's house, Jason and Carly get into an accident with Elizabeth and Lucky's wife, Siobhan. Jason is rushed to the hospital, and subsequently has to undergo surgery. Jason comes out of the surgery and begins to experience seizures. Patrick discovers a piece of nonorganic material shifting in his frontal lobe. It turns out to be a piece of the dashboard from the original accident in 1995 caused by his brother AJ that flew into his nose. Jason has to have another surgery to remove the inorganic matter and the surgery is a success.
While Jason is in recovery from the surgery, he and Sam continue to plan their wedding. One disaster comes after another, as all of Maxie's wedding plans turn into disasters. The wedding planning begins to overwhelm Sam, and Jason takes her on a bike ride to calm her nerves. The end up at a Chinese restaurant in the Asian Quarter and learn that the owner is also an ordained minister. On September 22, 2011, Sam and Jason get privately married in a garden on the restaurant's property. Earlier in the day, Edward had given Jason his grandmother Lila's ring to give to Sam, and Monica had given Sam her late husband Alan's ring to give to Jason. Jason and Sam exchanged these rings as they wed in a small and intimate ceremony. They go to the "wedding" the following day and tell their loved ones that they already got married but have a reception at the church's courtyard.
After the reception Jason and Sam leave for their honeymoon. They spend a few days in Hawaii before, Shawn and Carly interrupt with the news that Franco had returned. Jason has his men do a thorough investigation and they track Franco to Toronto. Believing that they were in the clear, Shawn and Carly returned home and Jason and Sam stayed in Hawaii to finish their honeymoon. On their last night Sam and Jason were both tricked into drinking an open beer not knowing it was drugged by Franco. Jason woke up trapped in a room with a TV showing Franco carrying an unconscious Sam into their bedroom. As he watches, Jason begs to be let out and threatens Franco. When Jason is finally freed he runs to a sleeping Sam. Because of the amnesia-like effect of the drug the only thing Sam can remember is that a man was in bed with her. Jason then tells her what he saw and they are both led to believe that Franco raped her.
They return to Port Charles and Jason begins losing his temper and searching for Franco. He is tormented by visions of what he saw on the TV and the guilt of not being able to protect his wife. He is powerless to take Sam's pain away which intensifies his anger. He has several outbursts including attacking the former mayor. Finding Franco and making him pay become an obsession to Jason. His anger causes everyone to become concerned. Jason finally locates Franco in an undisclosed studio and sets off to confront him. Franco taunts Jason upon his arrival, but Jason ends the confrontation quickly by shooting Franco twice in the chest -- killing him. He later returns home to tell Sam that the Franco ordeal was over and they could move on with their lives, however Sam cuts him off by telling him that she is pregnant. They discus their options and decide to have an early paternity test done to determine the baby's paternity. Jason tells Sam that he will support her no matter the outcome of the test. Meanwhile as he and Sam await the paternity test results, his headaches worsened. After running more tests, Robin told Jason that his outbursts are caused by a cerebral edema as a result of the surgery.
Jason and Sam later receive the results of the paternity test and Jason learns that he is the father of Sam's baby. He and Sam go away and spend a couple nights at their wedding night cabin. When they return home, they inform friends and family of their happy news. Jason later collapses in the PH and Sam insists that he see a doctor. At the hospital, Patrick runs more tests and has to break the news to Jason that his condition is inoperable. Determine to save him, Robin begins working on a drug protocol to cure Jason. Robin comes up with a medicine to save him, but tragically dies in a lab explosion. Patrick, grief-stricken and angry refuses to give Jason the medicine or even operate on him. But after Sam begs him for his help, he decides to do the surgery because it is what Robin would want. Patrick operates on Jason and administers the medication successfully.
After learning about Robin's death, Jason becomes angry with Sam for keeping the truth from him. They argue but Jason eventually forgives her and they reconcile when he learns that she was trying to protect him and acted out of love. After he is recovered from the surgery, he and Sam decide to figure out what the DVD that Franco left behind meant. Sam goes to the Ferncliff mental institution where she meets with Heather Webber who tells Sam that Franco is Jason's fraternal twin brother. Sam runs another DNA test and is devastated when it says Franco is the father. She tells Jason and he has a hard time accepting the news. Jason and Sam decide to separate for a little while to work on their marital issues. When Jason realizes that he can love and accept the baby as his own, he goes to the motel where Sam was staying to tell her, unaware that she had gone into labor and given birth to a baby boy. A torrential rainstorm prevented Sam from getting to the hospital and she was forced to give birth in the motel with the help of John McBain. Jason was jealous of Sam's growing friendship with John so he sent two guys to beat John up and convince him to go back home. This action prevented John from getting Sam and the baby to the hospital. Sam leaves the motel with the baby to look for help and after placing the baby somewhere safe, she passes out.
Jason finds Sam and the baby and is forced to tell her that her baby is dead. They are unaware however that Todd Manning and Heather switched Sam's son with the late newborn son of Téa Delgado. Sam says that she wanted to name the baby Jason Morgan, Jr. It was later revealed that Heather switched the paternity results and made it appear that Franco was the father of Sam's child when in reality, the baby is truly Jason's biological son, but this truth remains unknown to everyone except Heather and Todd. Jason then tries to comfort Sam over her loss and make things right between them again. But when she finds out that he had John beat up, she refuses to forgive him, and pushes him away. Jason still tries to reconcile with her, coming to the baby's memorial and asking Sam to come home with him. She still refuses. Jason tries to fix his marriage, but when he sees Sam kissing John on July 4th, he decides he and Sam cannot repair their relationship. He runs into Elizabeth after seeing Sam and John, and impulsively kisses her. But he later regrets it, telling Elizabeth he was angry.
The next day, Jason takes off his wedding ring. However, when Elizabeth's brother, Steve, finds out, he tells Jason to stay away from Elizabeth, which Sam overhears. When she confronts him about kissing Elizabeth, Jason confronts her about kissing John. They both make it clear to each other that they believe their marriage is over, as Sam tells Jason that Elizabeth is welcome to him. Jason also tells Elizabeth that their marriage was done the night Sam's baby "died." Jason is talking to Carly, who is trying to convince Jason to go back to Sam, when he hears Sam is working for Todd Manning. Jason wonders why, when Sam already has a job, when he realizes she's investigating Todd. He goes to see Sam, and asks her if she's investigating Todd. When Sam asks why he cares, Jason says because she is his wife, and he's worried she could get hurt because Todd is dangerous. Sam tells him she is investigating Todd because he hired Heather Webber under suspicious circumstances. When she tells Jason she's trying to break into Todd's safe, he offers to stand guard while she does that, and Sam accepts. Todd comes back before she can get in, but she & Jason are cordial to each other afterwards, showing kindness to each other for the first time since the "death" of Sam's baby.
Jason and Sam decide to get a divorce in August of 2012. They share a heartbreaking goodbye and kiss. Their plan to divorce gets put on hold, however, when Alexis and Josslyn are kidnapped and end up in the hospital with a mystery illness. Jason teams up with John to find out what the mystery illness is. When Jason & John go to Wyndemere, the last place Alexis and Josslyn were, they find Dr. Ewen Keenan there. Jason is suspicious and thinks he is involved, but doesn't have anything to prove it. Eventually, it's revealed that the perpetrator is Jerry Jacks, who has poisoned the Port Charles water supply, and injected Josslyn and Alexis with the antidote for the poison. Jerry demands a large sum of money in return for the antidote.
Jason believes Ewen is working with Jerry, but Spinelli and Elizabeth, who is dating Ewen, do not believe him. However, his suspicions prove to be correct, and Ewen kidnaps Elizabeth. Jason has Spinelli track them down, but when he gets there, Ewen is holding Elizabeth at gunpoint. He shoots Jason in the leg so he can escape, but Elizabeth manages to escape and Jason shoots and kills Ewen. Elizabeth brings Jason to the hospital to treat his leg. While they are there, Sam and John come in after she fainted to make sure she hasn't been infected with the poison. When they both are left alone, Sam shares with Jason a fantasy she had where her son survived and what their life would be like. Unable to bear Sam blaming herself for her son's death, Jason asks Patrick to clarify what happened to Sam's baby for them. Patrick brings the autopsy report, and tells Jason & Sam that the baby had hemophilia and died of respiratory failure. When Jason asks if he could have been saved if he had made it to the hospital, Patrick says the baby couldn't have survived because his lungs weren't developed. Jason & Sam realize that it wasn't their fault the baby didn't make it.
Jason takes a look at the autopsy, and realizes that something doesn't add up. The baby's blood type is different from both Sam and Franco's. Elizabeth tells Jason it's probably just a hospital error. Jason later brings it up to Spinelli, who tries to find a way to clarify the information. Spinelli finds out Sam donated the baby's tissue to the hospital, and it's still stored there, which means they can run a test to see if the blood type was recorded correctly. Jason goes home on his birthday, and finds Elizabeth there decorating the penthouse for the occasion. Jason is not in the mood to celebrate, and Elizabeth asks if he's still divorcing Sam, which Jason confirms. She ends up kissing him, but Jason stops her, saying they don't have a future, but Elizabeth isn't convinced. Before they can discuss it any further, Spinelli comes back with the results. He tells Jason the baby's blood type wasn't a mistake, and Jason realizes the baby that died wasn't Sam's. When Jason retraces what happened to Sam and her baby the night of the storm, Spinelli realizes Heather was involved in the switch. Jason decides to go to Ferncliff to talk to Heather, but Spinelli gets a phone call from Steve, Heather's son, and informs Jason that Heather escaped from Ferncliff.
Jason talks to Steve about where Heather could be, and when Steve asks why, Jason tells him he thinks Heather took Sam's baby. Steve doesn't believe it, but when Jason lays out the facts, Steve is shocked at what his mother did. When Jason tells him he's not sure where the other baby came from, Steve reveals that he treated Téa Delgado and her newborn son the night of the storm. He gets Téa's medical file, and the baby is revealed to have the same blood type as Sam, as well as beta-thalassemia, a blood condition that runs in Sam's family. Jason realizes Sam's baby is alive, and living with Téa.
Jason calls John and shares his suspicions. John reveals that Téa was with Todd the night of the storm, and starts to believe he was involved in the switch, as well. To clarify his suspicions, Jason asks John to get a DNA sample to confirm everything. After John leaves, Jason lets Elizabeth know what he found out. When John comes with the DNA sample, Jason asks Elizabeth to run it against Sam's. When he gets the results back, though, the results are negative, and Jason is disappointed. Spinelli, though, encourages him to keep digging. However, the night of Sonny's wedding, Elizabeth comes over to Jason's house and reveals that she switched the DNA tests. When Jason asks if she has the real results, she hands them over, which reveal that Téa's son is actually Sam's baby. Jason asks why Elizabeth would do that, and Elizabeth says it was because of what Sam did to Jake, but also because she wanted to be with Jason, and was trying to separate him and Sam. She apologizes for what she's done, and Jason is understanding and forgives her.
Jason calls John over and shows him the real results. John goes to tell Téa the truth, and Jason leaves to tell Sam. When he goes there, he finds out Elizabeth came over and admitted to Sam she was trying to split them up. Before Jason can say anything more, Kristina comes in with her husband, Trey Mitchell, and tells Jason & Sam she was almost killed by Joe Scully, Jr., Trey's father and Sonny's nemesis. Dante comes over to get their statements, and after the three of them leave, Jason gets a call from John that the baby has been kidnapped by Heather. Jason again goes to Steve and reveals that Sam's baby was switched with Téa's, and Heather has kidnapped Sam's son. He asks Steve to keep an eye out for his mother. Steve asks if Sam knows, and Jason reveals he didn't tell her because she would worry. Steve tells Jason she has a right to know, and asks Jason if Sam would really want to be protected like this. Jason realizes he's right, and goes over to Sam's house and reveals her baby is alive. When Sam is about to leave, Jason reveals that Heather has kidnapped the baby while she was posing as a nanny. Meanwhile, John comes over to give them an update on the investigation. While he's there, Spinelli calls Jason and tells him Steve came in to the hospital after being attacked by Heather.
Jason and Sam go to the hospital, and find out from Steve that Heather is looking for a second chance at motherhood and has taken the baby to raise as her own. Sam is worried, and Jason promises her they'll get her son back. When Sam comments on how she doesn't remember what her son looks like, Jason goes to Dante and gets copies of pictures that the PCPD has of the baby. He shows them to Sam, and she's overjoyed her son is strong and healthy, and Téa has taken care of him well. Jason promises her she'll hold her son again. Dante leaves when John and Commissioner Anna Devane get a lead on Heather. While they're waiting, Jason and Sam hear a noise. They find Olivia hurt in the stairwell, and she tells them Heather pushed her, and is in the hospital with the baby. When Jason asks where she is, Olivia says she went to the roof, and Jason & Sam run to the roof, cornering Heather and the baby.
Both Jason and Sam plead with Heather to give them the baby. Heather says Jason will never love the baby because he's Franco's son, but Jason says that it's his son, and he wants him back. Sam then asks for the baby, and in exchange, she'll help Heather repair her relationship with her son. However, when Anna calls out to Heather, and tells her the police have surrounded the building, Heather realizes she's trapped. She goes to the ledge, and says if she can't have the baby, no one can. She topples off the ledge, and Jason runs towards her, trying to get the baby. Heather hits the ground below, but Jason manages to grab the baby out of her arms, and saves his life. Afterwards, he gives the baby to Sam, happy that Sam is finally able to hold her son again.
Jason and Sam go back into the hospital with John to get the baby checked out. Before they can, though, Téa runs in with Todd and tries to take "her son" back. John has Jason & Sam taken away so he can explain to Téa the truth. Jason & Sam have her son checked out, but he is determined to be in perfect health. Afterwards, Sam tells Jason how she's not sure what to do next, but Jason tells her she'll figure it out as she gets to know her son. Téa later comes by the room, and tells them she knows the baby isn't hers. She asks to say goodbye, and though Jason is hesitant, Sam lets her hold the baby. When Téa gives the baby back, Sam thanks Téa for taking good care of him. Téa leaves, and Sam tells Jason that in her fantasy, they named her son Daniel Edward, which is what she names her son.
Jason later tells Sonny that he's hoping Sam and Danny will come home with him, because he wants to be a father to her son and take care of both of them. Sonny tells him to fight for his family. Later, Jason brings Monica by to introduce him to Daniel. When Monica asks Jason & Sam what the baby's last name is (McCall or Morgan), both of them become awkward and admit they haven't figured it out. Just then, Alexis, Molly, and Kristina come in, and start fawning over Daniel. Meanwhile, Jason steps out with Monica, who tells Jason that he and Sam should repair their marriage now that she has her son back. Jason tells her that it's up to Sam if they get back together. Jason comes in and hears Alexis telling Sam that they have set up all the baby equipment at her house, and it will be ready when Sam and Danny come home.
After they leave, Jason asks Sam to bring Danny home with him. He tells her that he's sorry for all the pain he has caused her, and he wants to prove it to her by loving both her and her son as a family. When Sam reminds him of how he expressed doubt about loving the baby, he says that went away and he loves Danny more than he ever thought possible and he wants to be his father. Sam leaves to get Danny's bottle, and Carly comes by, having just heard the news. She's thrilled for Jason, and hopes he's getting back together with Sam. Jason tells her that's up to Sam. When Sam comes back, Carly encourages her to get back with Jason. After she leaves, Jason tells Sam that she makes the final decision. Sam decides they've waited long enough, and tells Jason she and Danny are coming home with him, and the two of them reunite.
After Sam, Jason and Danny go home, they take a family picture, and then Jason leaves when Bernie frantically summons him to Pier 52. When Jason arrives at the pier, he sees Joe Scully, Jr. hovering over Bernie, whom he has just shot. Jason pulls his gun on Joe and commands him to surrender. Joe then moves to shoot Jason, but Jason fatally shoots Joe first. Jason then rushes over to Bernie, who says he needs to tell him "about the money;" but before Bernie can finish, Cesar Faison, disguised as Duke Lavery, appears from behind and shoots Jason. Faison then kicks Jason's bleeding and dying body into the harbor. Sonny and some divers go into the harbor, but are unable to recover Jason's body, and he is presumed dead. Jason's disappearance hits the town hard, especially Sam, who refuses to believe Jason is dead, despite everyone else saying there's no chance of him coming back. A week after Jason disappears, Sam finally finds out Jason is Danny's biological father. She sees Jason walking through the door, only to be disappointed later when she realizes he was never there and she imagined him. When Faison is captured and arrested by John, he confesses to also shooting Jason and throwing him into the harbor. John comes back and tells Sam about this and Sam finally begins to accept that Jason is gone.
In early February 2014, Victor Cassadine arrives on Robin Scorpio-Drake's doorstep and announces that he is the new head of the WSB. He wants Robin to bring his sister-in-law, Helena Cassadine and nephew, Stavros Cassadine back to life, as they are not completely dead and their bodies were being preserved in the Cassadines cryogenic lab. When Robin asks Victor why she should help him, he goes on to tell her that if she helps Helena and Stavros, she would also be helping Jason. Victor explains to Robin that Faison wanted control of Sonny's territory and to do that, he knew he had to get Jason out of the way. So he shot Jason and kicked his body into the water. Despite this action, Faison knew Jason could be a valuable asset to him in the future, so he had a group of men waiting offshore and they pulled Jason's body out of the water. After Jason was pulled from the water, Victor claims he was taken to the same Swiss clinic, where Robin, AJ Quartermaine, Stavros Cassadine and Duke Lavery were all either held against their will or treated.
When the clinic was raided in late 2012 and Duke was found, Victor says Dr. Liesl Obrecht arranged to have their most valuable patients transported elsewhere. Jason was put into Helena's care along with Stavros, and Helena put Jason into a cryogenic stasis. Victor goes on to say that Jason was healing from the gun shot wound, but was still debilitated which made him easier to manage. Robin doubts Victor's story, but Victor is adamant that he is telling the truth and Jason is not dead, only in a cryogenic sleep. Robin demands to see concrete proof that Victor has Jason, citing that is the only way she will consider his offer. Victor assures Robin he will give her the necessary evidence she needs in due time, but Patrick and Emma were on their way home, so they would have to meet at another time. Before Victor leaves he warns Robin that she cannot tell anyone about his project or else she will fail in saving Jason. Victor returns a day later with a DVD that he shows Robin as proof that Jason is still alive. After watching the DVD, Robin seems to believe that Jason is alive, but is still torn at leaving her family. She is unsure of her decision until she meets Jason's son, Danny in the park. After meeting Danny, Robin decides to accept Victor's offer and bring Helena and Stavros back, so she can also save Jason. On March 4, 2014 Robin confirms that Jason is alive.
On August 12, 2014, Victor injected Jason with a new medicine that Robin had invented. At first it appeared Jason was recovering, but then his vitals started to drop. Robin used a defibrillator on Jason, until Victor's goons held her back. Victor assumed Jason was dead and went to close the lid on the cryogenic capsule, but Jason's hand grabbed Victor's wrist, confirming he is alive and awake. Victor then revealed his plans to use Jason for his own agenda. On September 12, Jason is seen struggling to gets free of his restraints and eventually he breaks free and knocks out William Eichner. Then Jason finds Robin chained up and uses a gun to shoot the chain and free her. They then embraced and Jason reveals that he can't talk.
They prepare to leave the clinic, but they are stopped by Helena Cassadine. Helena says she has big plans for Jason and Robin, and she tries to take them, but Jason kills Helena's goons and they escape the clinic just before it blows up. Jason and Robin steal a car and get on the road back to Port Charles. Robin fills Jason in on some things, including telling Jason that Danny is his biological son. When they near Port Charles, Robin decides it would be too dangerous to their families to go straight home, because Helena could still be on their tail. Instead, Robin heads to The Metro Court to find her mother and fill her in, and Jason goes to Sonny's house. Jason makes it to Sonny's front door but is kidnapped by Helena's goons. He is then seen in a car with them but manages to jump out of the moving vehicle.
Jason finds the road but is then run over Ava Jerome. Ava got out of the car she wanted to call 911 but if she did Sonny would find her she calls Jordan Ashford. Jordan tells Ava that she will take the blame since Ava was driving her car during the accident and let Ava get away. Jason is rushed to the hospital, Elizabeth is one of the nurse working on him but she doesn't recognize him because of injures. Jason flat lines, but they get him back and he goes into surgery. Jason was in surgery for over 36 hours and had to have several reconstructive surgeries, including facial reconstruction to repair all the damage. On the same day that Jason got out of surgery, Sam was at the hospital taking Danny for a check-up. As Sam and Danny are leaving the check-up, Danny wanders into Jason's room and grabs his father's hand.
Sam chases after Danny and finds him in the room with Jason. She tries to get Danny to let go of the "stranger's" hand, but he refuses. Elizabeth arrives a little while later and gets Danny to let go of Jason's hand by offering him candy. Sam and Liz talk about the "John Doe" patient and his accident. Sam spends some time holding Jason's hand and talking to him. She tells him that she doesn't know what it is about him, but she wants to see him get better. Right after Sam asks him to get better, Jason's vitals spike momentarily. Liz says Sam can stay with the patient while she goes to get his doctor, because Sam talking to him was doing him good. But Sam was unable to stay, because she had to go to Amsterdam for a case she's working on.
Liz leaves to get the doctor and Sam and Danny say goodbye to "John Doe," unaware that it was Jason they were talking to the entire time. When Jason wakes up, he has trouble remembering what happened to him. He remembered the accident but cannot remember his own name. He has memory flashes of Liz and their son, Jake, which leads him to believe that his name is Jake. On October 13, Jason's bandages are removed. During this time, he and Elizabeth bond and he also has an encounter with his wife and son. After being kicked out of the hospital, Jason moves in in with Elizabeth. He also spends Thanksgiving with his Sam and Danny.
In December, Helena tells Jason that who he really is and that she is his boss. She orders him to forget who he is, to kidnap Sam and help Faison escape. He then goes to the police station wearing a mask and a black suit. He abducts her at gunpoint, but is stopped by police, who command him to let Sam go. He refuses unless he is given the keys to the Pentonville van so Faison can escape. Jason shoots Det. Nathan West and the police hand him over the keys. Jason knocks Sam out and evades the police in the Pentonville van. Later, Helena helps Faison flee the country with his daughter. Weeks later, Sam suspects Jason as the gunman, but he denies it and suddenly forgets what he did to Sam.
On Christmas Eve, Jason almost kisses Liz under the mistletoe, but Ric Lansing (Liz's ex-husband) interrupts them. On New Years Eve, after talking with Ric, Jason decides to move out of Elizabeth's house so he can start to find out who he is and also to find a better job. After he leaves Elizabeth's house, he goes to the Metro Court Hotel to see if Carly Corinthos-Jacks can give him any job so he can pay rent. Carly asks why he needs to pay rent and Jason tells her that he moved out of Elizabeth's house because he might have family out there somewhere and also because of Ric. Carly tells Jason that Ric isn't a good person and she tells him she doesn't like Ric because of things he did to her in the past. Jason says that he doesn't like him either. Then Ric and Elizabeth show up because of the New Years Eve party and Elizabeth was shocked to see him there. Carly tells them that Jason works at the hotel as a bartender. When Carly gave him the drinks to pass around, he runs into Sam and Patrick. Sam asks if he works here and he tells her that Carly hired him. He say's he will miss her accusing him holding her hostage at gunpoint. At midnight, Jason watches everyone kissing and feels sad as he looks at Ric and Elizabeth kissing. Carly comes over and kisses him to comfort him.
In January, Carly gives him a room at the Metro Court. The next morning Carly comes to Jason's room and they end up having breakfast together. Later on, while Jason is talking to Carly, she reads the newspaper about the gunmen that grabbed Sam. Carly sees that Jason upset and Jason finally tells Carly that the reason Sam doesn't like him is because she thinks he's the gunman. Jason tells her that he had a flashback of him grabbing Sam. He also tells her that around the same time the gunmen was grabbing Sam, he was out looking for a job. Carly says maybe Sam's getting into his head. Carly tells Jason to go see Dr. Kevin Collins.
Later on, Carly takes Jason to see Kevin and they ran into Sam. Sam and Carly talk while Jason goes to the office to see Kevin. When he gets there Helena is sitting in Kevin's chair and she tells him to sit down. Jason tells Helena the Sam suspects him of being the gunman. Helena tells Jason that it is true he did grab Sam. Jason says that he's leaving, but Helena tells him not too so he doesn't and can't. Jason asks why she's doing this to him why not have stationed somewhere until his next mission. She tells him she does have another mission for him. Later on, Jason comes out of the office and tells Sam and Carly that Kevin says the flashbacks were nothing and that they were just planted there. Then, there is a flashback about Helena ordering Jason to kill his own wife.
Later on, Jason is going through a bag with a gun in it, when Carly knocks on the door so he quickly hides it. He opens the door and Carly hugs him. She is upset because Michael still hasn't forgiven her. Jason and Carly talk and he offers to talk to Michael for her but she says that it’s not the best idea because Michael actually likes Jason. Later on, Jason is seen on the pier having a flashback of Helena ordering him to kill Sam. Elizabeth comes by and she invites him to dinner since Ric and Molly were out of town. Jason tells her that it isn't good idea because he’s afraid that he won’t be able to stop himself from wanting more.
A couple of days later, Jason goes to Sam's penthouse and breaks in after Sam and Patrick go upstairs. He sees pictures of Sam and himself with his old face and he starts to hear Sam’s voice in his head. Then Robin appears and Jason stands up to shoot her but she tells him that she’s not really there. Robin asks him why he's doing this. He tells her Helena told him too and she asks him why he's taking orders from Helena. Just then the phone rings and it was Helena calling to see if the job was done and he says no. Jason tells her that Sam has company so she tells him kill both of them. After the call, Robin disappears, so Jason goes upstairs to kill Sam and Patrick. When he opens the door and sees them in bed, he starts to have flashbacks of him and Sam on the night he got shot, them putting their wedding rings back on, and fooling around in bed. Sam and Patrick head for the shower while Jason enters the room and has more flashbacks of Sam giving him the phoenix before he left. He hears Sam and Patrick coming out of the shower so he takes the phoenix and leaves. Jason goes to the docks and has more memories be he passes out.
The next day paramedics find him and take him to the hospital. Lucas and Elizabeth treat him for hypothermia and a laceration on his forehead. Elizabeth calls Carly, who arrives soon after demanding to see Jason. Carly talks to Jason and then she looks in the bag that was found with him and finds a gun. She asks him if he has ever seen it before and he says no. She then pulls out a ski mask. Jason doesn't know where he got any of those things. He is starting to wonder if he took Sam hostage. Carly tells Jason that they are going to see Kevin again. Patrick and Elizabeth come back and Carly leaves with the bag because Jason begged her not to tell anyone. Later on, Carly and Jason are seen in Kevin'a office talking about his memories. Carly also finds a phone in the bag. Jason tells her that he has never seen or used it before. Carly checks the phone to see if any calls or texts were on the phone and there are but they come up as unknown calls. Jason is eager to get answers, so Carly goes to find Kevin.
Jason gets a call from Helena and she tells him to meet her. Jason leaves and goes to the graveyard. Helena asked him why Sam and Patrick are not dead and he tells her a woman stopped him. Helena figures out that Robin was the one that stopped him in his head. So Jason asks why she's hurting people and what Sam means to him. Helena tells him to forget about killing Sam, she has another mission for him. Later on, it is revealed in a flashback that Helena ordered Jason to put a bomb on The Haunted Star. Jason is later seen on the docks when a delivery guy comes along, and he attacks the guy, drags him away and takes his place. Jason walks onto the Haunted Star and introduces himself to Lulu, who tells him where to put the drinks.
Meanwhile at the police station after Kevin revealed to Carly that he never had a meeting with Jason, Carly figures out that Jason lied but that something is wrong. She asks Nathan if Dante was there, he said no that he was called on another police matter. Carly tells Nathan she thinks that Jason was the one that broke Faison out of prison and she shows him the evidence. Nathan finds the gun and has it tested against the bullet the doctors pulled out of him and the gun came back as a match. Meanwhile back on the Haunted Star, Jason plants the bomb behind the bar. Helena calls Jason and he tells her that the job is done. Maxie calls Nathan to see if he’s coming he says yes he just got held up. Maxie tells him to take his time because Jason is there. Later on, Nathan comes to the Haunted Star and arrests Jason. He is then taken into police custody where Sam wants to question him about breaking into her apartment. Afterwards, he tells her that Helena ordered him to do all those things, including planting a bomb in The Haunted Star. Sam then calls Lucas and the bomb is safety taken of the boat. After remembering, Sam continues to ask him questions. Before he can answer, he is attacked by Patrick Drake and then he pins Patrick to a table.
The next day, Elizabeth goes to see Jason in jail and is shocked to hear all the things he has done plus he lied to her. Jason said he was sorry but she wanted explanation for everything. He told that he doesn't remember all the things he did and he says he thinks Helena has been controlling him. After hearing him out, she believed it because Helena did the same thing to Lucky. Jason was relieved that she trusted him but he asked how they were going to prove it. Elizabeth says there's one person that Helena could trust and that was Nikolas. After talking to Nikolas he agreed to help her out. Later on Helena agreed to Nikolas term's. Patrick examined Jason's head and found a chip planted in his brain. Elizabeth went to tell the good news to Jason and they went to the hospital. When they got there Patrick told him that after looking over the scans of his brain he said he couldn't do the surgery because he might kill him if something goes wrong. After talking with Elizabeth he decides to go through with the operation.
Before being wheeled in for surgery, Sam wanted to say something to him. Jason told her he was glad she was there for him. She touched his hand he had a flashback of the night he got shot putting his wedding ring on his finger, about how there was only one ring and also the night he broke into the penthouse. But before he could say anything else, he had to go in to the operating room. Just before the anesthesia kicked in, he remembered Helena telling him that was Jason Morgan. Before he was able to tell Elizabeth, he passed out from the anesthetic. After the successful surgery, Jason wakes up and Elizabeth asks if he remembers what he was going to tell her before he passed out and says no. Just before Elizabeth was going to tell how she has feelings for him, the Police Commissioner Kyle Sloane comes in and Elizabeth went to go find Dr. Obrecht.
Sloane tells Jason that all the charges have been dropped, but that has go to undercover in the Jerome organization and Jason then refuses. Sloane tells him its either go undercover or go to prison. Jason says he has to think about it. Then Carly comes to see him and says she saw what was going on. Finally he tells her that Sloane wants him to go undercover in the Jerome organization. Carly says no and that she's going find him the best lawyer. But he says he's going to go undercover and Carly accepts that this is what he has to do. When being released from the hospital, Spinelli sees "Jake" and mistakes him for Jason (which he is) from behind and runs up to him and hugs him but realized he isn't him.
Later on, Jason wanted to speak to Sam about asking Julian for a job, something on the legit side. Sam agrees to ask her father. After leaving the hospital Jason would stay at Carly's house just until he get's his own money. Sam called Jason to tell him that Julian would give him a job. Then Carly left and the doorbell rang and it was Sonny. They had a heated conversation, Sonny was even more mad when Jason told him he was going to go work for Julian. Carly comes in to tries to stop them and then Jason leaves to go see Julian. Carlos tells Julian he doesn't trust Jason because of what Jason did to him. Julian tells Carlos he was right that Jason might be working for Sonny. Jason tells them he wouldn't even lift a finger for Sonny and then Jason gets the job. Jason goes to the Metro Court to see Carly to tell her he was sorry for what happened between him and Sonny and Carly tells him not to worry about it. Jason says maybe they shouldn't be friends but Carly says no, they still going to be friends. She also tells him that Ric and Elizabeth just broke up and that he should go see Elizabeth. Jason goes to see Elizabeth and tells her how he feels about her and Elizabeth does the same and then they kiss.
As they are about to go upstairs, the doorbell rings and Elizabeth answers it to a women named Hayden, who claims to be Jason's wife. Both Elizabeth and Jason are shocked to hear this. Hayden says Jake's real named is Jacob Barnes and that they went camping but had a huge fight and he walk out on her. Elizabeth asks Hayden for proof. Hayden says is was back in her hotel room at the Metro Court. After leaving, she makes a phone call telling the person that they fell for it and she tells the person she will meet them back at the hotel. At the hotel the person revealed was Ric, who hired Hayden to pretend to be Jason's wife so that he and Elizabeth could get back together. When Carly finds out she doesn't believe the story and tells Hayden she will find out the truth. After Elizabeth sees medical records that Hayden provides, she sees the same spot that Patrick recently performed surgery on is the same spot that Jason had his previous head injury. Elizabeth starts to believe the story and leaves. Outside Elizabeth tells Jason goodbye and they kiss.
In April, Jason drops Sam's car off at Patrick's house and while he's there he recognizes Robin's picture, from the hallucination he had on the night he was suppose to kill Sam and Patrick. He tells Patrick about seeing her and Patrick tells him that Robin left months before he showed up. Sam says maybe he's he seen pictures of her at Elizabeth's house because the two of them are friends. As Jason leaves he throws Sam the keys to her car but she misses and the end up under the coach. Jason goes to grab the keys and he also finds a wedding ring. He gives it to Patrick but Patrick says that's not he's ring. He reads the inscription it says Alan Quartermaine. Sam realized its Jason's ring and wonder how the right got there. Emma comes in tells them that Spencer tried to give her the ring. Then Sam wonders how Spencer got the ring so she says she's going to see Nikolas but just then there is a knock at the door and it just so happens to be Nikolas. Nikolas tells them that Helena gave it to him before she left Port Charles. Nikolas also says that the reason why he didn't tell Sam was because that was the same day of Spencer's birthday party that ended up catching on fire. But Nikolas really knows that Jake is Jason.
In May, at the Nurse Ball, the truth about Ric hiring Hayden to pretend to be Jake's wife, comes out thanks to Carly. After the truth comes out, Elizabeth ends things with Ric for good. Then she tells Nikolas that she can finally be with Jake but Nikolas tells her that Jake is Jason. Elizabeth is furious and has every intention of telling the truth but doesn't and decides to keep Jason and everyone else in the dark so she can finally be happy with Jason and Nikolas agrees to keep their secret. After the Ball, Jason and Elizabeth go back to her house and talk. They decide to be together and they make love. A couple weeks later, Commissioner Sloane decides to drop all the charges against Jason.
In June, Jason is looking for a job and Michael hires him as security for ELQ and to find out who is giving information to the Cassadine's so they can take over ELQ. They eventually find out that Michael's secretary Rosalie is working for Nikolas. But they find too late as Nikolas has enough votes to take over ELQ. In July, Jason and Sam work together to help get ELQ back in Michael's control. Also Jason and Elizabeth's son Jake is revealed to be alive. He was kidnapped by Helena and was living on Cassadine Island for 4 years. It was also revealed that Jake's kidney where never giving to Josslyn. Jason is also able to convince Elizabeth to let Jake and Danny meet.
In August, Jason proposes to Elizabeth and after some hesitation she says yes. Jason goes to Carly about his engagement to Elizabeth and he also calls her his best friend. Afterwards, Jason leaves and arrives back at Elizabeth's right before Sam and Danny leave and he sees both of his sons and their mothers in the same room for the first time. After Sam and Danny leave, Jason proposes to Elizabeth again with a ring and she of course says yes. A few days later, Sam calls Jason with a break in their case against Nikolas--Kyle Sloane, but the break is short lived when in the end Sloane refuses to help. Jason and Sam head the docks and talk about what happened when a gunshot rings out and Jason instinctively protects Sam. He tells her to stay down and stay put while he goes to the warehouse.
He arrives outside the door and sees three men with guns standing over Sonny, who was shot, and TJ tied to a chair. One of men said he couldn't have any witnesses (meaning killing TJ) so Jason comes in attacks one of the gunman and breaks his neck and grabs the gun and shoots and kills the other two gunman. Sam comes in sees Jason with a gun and three men dead and she's kind of in shock but she calls an ambulance for Sonny and unties TJ while Jason tries to get Sonny to stay awake. Sonny hallucinates about Jason telling him "I knew you would come you always do." Before passing out, Sonny tells Jason to tell Carly that he loves her. So Jason goes to Sonny's house to tell her that Sonny been shot and is in the hospital.
In November, after finding out his true identity, he decides to stay with Elizabeth but he kisses Sam. Days later, he wanted to search for answers so he went to Cassadine Island to see Helena anwould tell him anything unbeknownst to him, Sam and Elizabeth, thanks to Spinelli, followed Jason. Helena played mind games with them, she even cursed Sam because, she said something to Helena which she didn't take well, but before she could tell Jason the secret she fell unconscious the doctor try to revive her but it was too late Helena died. Jason accuses Nikolas of trying to kill Helena he attacks him again but, Elizabeth got him to calm down and they left. Jason, Elizabeth and Jake spend Thanksgiving with the Quartermaine's.
In December, a very angry Jason confronts Elizabeth, who continues to deny all of his accusations and dodge all of his questions. However, Elizabeth finally cracks and admits that she knew his identity for months, she begged him to forgive her. She said didn't want to lose him again and also for love. But Jason couldn't and leaves.
Jason is called away from spending NYE with Sam at the Floating Rib because Jake claims to have seen a man outside of the Webber home window on New Year's Eve. After dealing with the alleged stalker situation, Jason goes to the penthouse to find Sam and explain to her why he had to cut their time short on NYE. He also confides in Sam about another memory he had of her and the star necklace. Sam explains the memory to him and they grow closer. Later, Jason asks her out and they go to lunch together at Kelly's.
With Jason still facing legal troubles from his fight with Nikolas, Sam sets out to prove that he's innocent. She managed to track down a couple who were staying at The Metro Court that night and witnessed the altercation between Jason and Nikolas. They were initially hesitant but Sam convinced them to agree to testify to the fact that Nikolas was the aggressor in the fight, thus exonerating Jason of the attempted murder charges. The couple later ran into Jason and Jake in the restaurant at the hotel and told Jason that they would testify to what they saw to clear him and he was a lucky man to have Sam in his life.
Excited about the good news, Sam went to Jason's hotel room to share it with him. Elizabeth answered the door and upon seeing Sam, tried to make it seem like her presence there was something that it was not. Jason and Jake soon arrive back to the hotel room and Jason makes it clear that Elizabeth and Jake are staying there because someone is stalking their home. He also tells Sam that he is now staying in a separate room down the hall if she needs to find him for any reason. Jason goes on to thank Sam for helping to clear him and then asks for her help in investigating the alleged stalker.
Jake starts to pick up on his mother's hatred of Sam and blames her for his parents' break up. He also starts to act out more and it becomes clear that he lied about the stalker and is the one behind the strange incidents at the Webber home. Elizabeth is angry and opposed to Sam helping with the investigation. Sam thinks Elizabeth doesn't want her help because she already knows who's behind the break-ins and is using the situation to manipulate Jason. Before it can get too far, Jason stops the confrontation and insists that Sam help because the sooner they figure out what's really going on the better it will be for everyone.
On Jason's "birthday" aka the day he woke up from his accident as Jason Morgan, Carly insists on throwing Jason a birthday party. She calls Sam and orders a cake. Sam is hesitant about the party because she doesn't want to put any pressure on Jason about his past, however Carly insists anyways. When Jason arrives at the MetroCourt he isn't in a partying mood. Carly is upset but gets it and backs off. Sensing that something is bothering him, Sam heads out to the terrace to check on Jason and bring him some cake. While out on the terrace, Sam and Jason are caught in the rain and the rain triggers another memory for Jason.
Jason remembered dancing with and kissing Sam in the rain on the penthouse rooftop. This memory was different from all of the others because he remembered the feelings he had for her, which made the memory all the more real. Jason and Sam make their way back inside and he shares the memory with her. He also tells Sam that he remembers what he felt for her in that moment. He asks for more details, so Sam takes him to the penthouse rooftop and tells him about that night. Jason is motivated after their talk to pursue his memories further and tells Sam that he wants to recover his memories with her help. Sam encourages him to do what he wants, but sadly lets him know that she can't be the one to help him with this. Some of his memories are also her memories of their life, which make them extremely personal to her and she doesn't want to impact his progress with her expectations or hopes to which Jason is very understanding.
Sam continues to investigate the stalker and soon discovers that Jake is behind the incidents. She goes to the Webber home to talk about what's been going on with Elizabeth and finds Jake alone with the babysitter and a cut hand. He had just thrown a rock out the window and cut his hand on the glass. Sam goes to call his parents and assures him that everything will be okay, but he gets scared and runs into the basement. Sam follows him trying to calm him down, but loses her footing and falls down the stairs. Upon seeing Sam at the bottom of the stairs unconscious, Jake gets scared and runs away. While running away, he gets hit by a car and is taken to GH.
With Jake in the hospital, no one knows that Sam is missing and she stays trapped in the basement, unable to move and suffering from a concussion and mild hypothermia. Jason starts to realize that something is wrong after he gets a call from Alice Gunderson because Sam failed to pick up Danny from a birthday party. Jason learns from Kristina and Molly that the last time they heard from Sam, she was heading to Elizabeth's, so he goes there to search for her. Sam hallucinates Jason several times as she is falling in and out of consciousness. She plugs in an old heater to keep warm, but falls unconscious again just as the heater begins to emit sparks and smoke. Jason arrives at Elizabeth's house to find the smoke detectors going off. He searches the entire house and finally finds Sam in the basement. He picks her up and makes it out of the house just moments before the heater causes a major explosion and fire in the home. The force of the explosion knocks Sam and Jason several feet into the air just as they make their way out of the house. After a moment of unconsciousness for both, they wake up and Jason rushes her to the hospital.
At the hospital, Jason stays by Sam's bedside. When Elizabeth hears what happened, she fears that Jake pushed Sam down the stairs on purpose. But Sam assures her that it was an accident and Jake didn't hurt her. After she was treated, Sam also went to visit Jake herself to assure him that she was okay and he did nothing wrong. Jason continued to divide his time in the hospital between Sam and Jake. While at Sam's bedside he admitted to her that he doesn't want to miss the opportunity to get to know her more and he's going to be better for her. After spending another day in the hospital Sam starts to get restless and misses Danny. She begs Jason to help her get out of there and he is initially hesitant, but eventually agrees.
Jason helps her sneak out but they are caught by Lucas, who eventually lets them go. They head to the Quartermaines to pick up Danny from Monica and then Jason takes them home to the penthouse. Sam, Jason, and Danny spend time together as a family and after Jason puts Danny to bed, Jason and Sam have some time to talk. Jason tells Sam that coming so close to losing her made him realize that he doesn't want to lose her and he now feels just how much they're connected. Sam thinks he is only there to help her as a friend, but Jason assures her that it's more than that between them and pulls her into a kiss. Jason and Sam start making out on the couch, but the complication of their situation stops them from taking it any further. Instead, they have an honest conversation about their relationship and the people they are now. Jason then cooks her dinner and they enjoy spending more time together before he is called away with news on Jake's condition. Jason returns to see Sam the next day and tells her that he and Elizabeth have to take Jake to Shriner's Hospital for Children in Philadelphia for treatment. He kisses her goodbye and promises to take her out when he gets back.
