The Jason Morgan Conspiracy is a conspiracy that involves two men who think they are Jason Morgan. One (Steve Burton's Jason) was locked in a Russian clinic, and is known mainly as Patient 6. The other one (Billy Miller's Jason) was kept in cryogenic suspension by Victor Cassadine, and was revived by Robin Scorpio-Drake. He was hit a by car, driven by Ava Jerome, soon after waking up and escaping the clinic and required multiple extensive surgeries, getting a new face in the process. He suffered from amnesia and believed himself to be Jake Doe for over a year until a DNA test proved that he was Jason Morgan and he regained his memories soon after.
The mastermind behind the conspiracy was Cesar Faison, a long with his son Henrik. In October 2017, Dr. Andre Maddox, a psychiatrist residing in Port Charles since 2015, is revealed to also be involved as he was the one who had conditioned Andrew Cain to believe he was Jason Morgan as well as give him all the memories of his twin brother. In 2018, it's revealed that Faison had Jason switched with his brother Drew because he had brain damage and could not be brainwashed. After the conditioning of Drew, he ordered Henrik to eliminate Jason. But Henrik had other plans and betrayed his father by having Jason kept alive at a clinic in Russia under the supervision of Dr. Klein till it was time for him to eliminate his father, to which after 5 years he did. Henrik has some sort of connection to Valentin Cassadine as they both worked together in plotting the final death of his father.
In October 2012, Jason was shot in the back by Cesar Faison, and kicked into the water. His body was never recovered and Jason was presumed dead.
In January 2014, Victor Cassadine approached Robin Scorpio with a proposal to revive the deceased Helena Cassadine and her son, Stavros. He also claimed that she would be helping to revive her long time friend Jason Morgan. In August 2014, Robin finally revived Jason, and Victor planned to use his skills as an assassin.
In September 2014, Robin and Jason escaped together, but soon got separated. Jason was hit a by car and his face was damaged beyond recognition. Having no ID on him, Jason was given reconstructive surgery with a completely new face. Jason also had amnesia and went by Jake Doe for over a year with only Nikolas Cassadine, Elizabeth Webber, Hayden Barnes, Laura Spencer and later, Lucky Spencer knowing the truth.
In May 2015, Jake Doe's real identity was uncovered by Carly Corinthos, and a DNA test proved he was Jason Morgan. A facial reconstruction program, developed by Spinelli also showed that Jake Doe before the accident and reconstructive surgery had Jason Morgan's original face.
In September 2017, Ava Jerome traveled to a clinic in Russia for plastic surgery after making a deal with Valentin Cassadine. At the clinic, Ava saw a mysterious hooded man in a wheelchair with a mask over his mouth. She was warned to stay away from the man, but felt drawn to him and would often communicate with him. For a split second, she hoped the man was the presumably deceased Nikolas Cassadine. The man was soon revealed to have Jason Morgan's original face and memories.
In October, Ava helped the man, known as Patient 6, escape from the clinic at almost the cost of her own life. Patient 6 got in contact with a Russian Priest, who helped him arrange transport back to Port Charles. On the way there, Patient 6 saw a newspaper that told him he had missed five years of his life.
On November 1, Andre revealed to Franco that he used to work for the WSB and invented a software to use computers in memory mapping to overlay one persons memories with another. Andre told Franco that the WSB shut it down before he could test it. So he sold it and then was presented with a test subject a few years ago...a man who had been shot and rescued from the Port Charles water. He didn't know who he was, only that he had an identical twin, which would increase the odds of success. He told Franco that both twins truly believe that they are Jason Morgan and neither know one is not. As there is no way to reverse the mapping Drew will continue thinking he's Jason Morgan.
It is unclear as to who exactly is Jason and who is Drew.
On December 1, it was revealed that Burton is portraying Jason and Miller is portraying Drew.
In early 2018, Jason Morgan finally shot and killed Cesar Faison.
