A Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane With Baby On Board
Good Sunday Morning, GHers!
What a difference a week makes…
I am sorry for not posting this past week, but it was just impossible. As many of you know, North Carolina had been on our radar for quite some time, so this trip wasn’t just leisurely. We were there to meet with a realtor, see some properties, tour the area and the schools, and get a real sense for whether or not NC is a possibility for us as far as relocating. So, while on all of my trips in the past I always stole time away from my hubby and kids for Bella Mafia, it just wasn’t possible this last time – not even to get back to the hotel to watch GH daily. We were on the realtor’s schedule, and it was jam-packed every single day. To top it off, as I told you on last week’s Drive, the hotel’s business center computers didn’t have speakers, as they are meant for business use, and there was no Soapnet there, so I had to wait until I returned to Jersey before I got caught up on this past week’s GH.
I hope you guys understand.
I’ll tell you what. In a million years, I would never have imagined that the Jason and Samantha Morgan who’ve been through so much already in the past year would EVER have to go through all of this tragedy of the past week! *shaking my damned head*
Why did Sam have to go through having to hear “your baby died” from Jason again? It just isn’t fair! Nothing has turned out the way I would have dreamed…or expected, but I cannot deny that I see the eery similarities the writers have come up with showing Jason’s desperation this time around and Sam’s desperation back in ’07. Jason allowing the fear that he was losing Sam to McBain is what drove him to hire two thugs to send McBain a message. It’s exactly what and why Sam did the same thing back in ’07, except that Sam’s move was harmless, regardless of what The Crazies say. I have to wonder if those early rumblings of Mr. Carlivati getting Jason and Sam on a more even playing field are what we are seeing right now. While nothing (I REPEAT – NOTHING) will ever pull me, push me, or even throw me off the JaSam Bandwagon, and while I want to make clear that I DETEST THIS STORYLINE, I can totally understand why it was written that Sam is not going to allow Jason to just apologize and be done with it – because unlike Sam’s mistake, Jason’s had far-reaching consequences, thanks to all of this B.S storytelling. I could see where Mr. C. might be trying to balance out the imperfections within this couple in that Sam was not allowed to apologize and “be done with it”. She apologized every which way she knew how, AND saved Jake’s life, and still some people are riding her ass about it.
I absolutely get why everyone has basically handed Jason his ass over the past week or so: He deserved nothing less after what Sam has been through. If the writers are truly tearing JaSam down to build them up stronger, that cannot really happen until Jason has walked a mile in Sam’s shoes. He has now experienced all of the things Sam did after finding out that Jason lied to her about being Jake’s father. From the sharing of the secret with someone else to making bad choices out of fear, Jason has been on the opposite side of always right now. Lessons will be learned from this, and when that happens, you learn to look to the future with what you’ve learned, and you stop looking back at the past. I have to believe that in the end, that will be a good thing for The Morgans. No more will Sam be the one with all the regrets, and the debts to pay. Jason will have to live with some regrets of his own, and he’ll have some paying back to do himself. I can live with that, as long as it’s at Sam’s side.
Before we take off, there’s something that has been weighing heavily on my mind since I saw the ratings for last week. I do think we are at a crucial point in our GH experience. The ratings clearly indicate what we already know: a lot of people chose to tune out on this baby switch storyline. That’s not enough. What’s most important is for every single one of us to make our voices heard and let them know over at GH the reasons WHY it didn’t sit well with us.
Don’t get emotional. Don’t be condescending or rude. Simply tell them why you have disengaged from your former favorite pastime. Tell them what caused you to disconnect with this storyline. Explain your disinterest.
Remember to choose your words calmly and carefully. Don’t let them get it twisted by thinking that you are reacting – that only creates “buzz” in their heads, and they LOVE buzz, whether positive buzz or negative buzz. We cannot forget that!
What they DETEST and FEAR is no reaction and/or no emotional. They don’t know what to do with themselves when viewers are uninterested, bored, or like I said earlier – not emotionally attached to the story, whether those emotions are anger, frustration, outrage, or excitement.
This is the time. Do or die for GH.
Please, let’s not let our soap down. Let’s not disappoint Steve or Kelly. Let’s do it for our Godbaby!
Buckle up, though we’ll be taking it slow! There is a Baby On Board, because we aren’t taking our eyes off Baby JJ!
As much as I struggled through watching these heartbreaking scenes while crying my eyes out, how could we not take a moment to appreciate Kelly’s incredible talent once more? And with Heather at the computer, it’s double the talent! All of that combined skill is worth the torture! “Tears Of An Angel” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WGUYlItXLY Credit: aproditebeauty
Oh, Lord. *blows nose* This vidder made this epic fail of a storyline feel downright EPIC. I felt like I was at Jason and Sam: The Musical. Amazing vid! “Now Life Has Killed The Dream” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8DgK5iPljI Credit: tenpointoh1
I believe we have a new vidder on board here on our Sunday Drive – just like I believe we have another amazing video! “We’ve Gotta Hold On” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32g0dRs5jLM Credit: ParachutesAirplanes3
I am not sure how Heather does it, but she always manages to find JUST the right song for the right occasion! *tears* “The Day You Gave Me A Son” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JExhDv7Ws7k Credit: aproditebeauty
Heavens! I needed this more than anyone knows! “Feels Like Home” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUnE4GzctyI Credit: JasamFanForeverLove
In all of the tragedy surrounding the baby, there is still something many fans need to see, and that Jason. “On Bended Knee” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLGbv-S8Wmo Credit: jmsg411
Somehow I overlooked this gem last week – I am so sorry, Heather! It truly is something everyone needs to see! “The Moment I Saw You” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKMQmVCEGLc Credit: aproditebeauty
How wonderful when I stumble upon a JaSam fan who can vid – but a JaSam fan who can vid and SING the background song herself? Priceless! “Good Morning Heartache” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NyBi6ZJ6lzY Credit: poetfederico
May I just say that the scene of Sam asking JJ what he was smiling at makes my heart melt every single time? And what was it I said about Heather and the perfect song every time? Here’s more proof! “Look What We Made When We Made Love” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZCHzXe0Jpo Credit: aproditebeauty
This talented vidder had the right idea – I hope that each of you falls in love with our JaSam all over again, just like she and I did. They are going to need us like never before in the weeks ahead. “Never Let Me Go” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4fnYhnHBhU Credit: PhickJaSam4eva
How precious is this? “Beautiful Boy” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFdLtNxW860 Credit: JasamUnited
Friends, we now know for sure and onscreen that Jason really is the baby’s daddy! Let’s hold on to that victory as we face the upcoming twists and turns of this storyline! Together, we will get through this. Just like Jason and Sam and Baby JJ!
