Focusing On The Things That Keep Us Watching

“Never Can Say Goodbye”…

Good morning, GHers.

My thoughts and prayers are with all those who lost a loved on this date 11 years ago, and I pray that we never forget how many lives were lost, and how many heroes were made on that day.

Let’s take a few moments to remember: A 9/11 Tribute

This is, and will always be, such a sad day for America, and so many people need our prayers today. I think the best way to honor the memory of the many lives lost is to take every possible opportunity to be kind to someone, to lend a helping hand, or to find a way to make our great nation better in any way available to us.

And of course, to pledge to Never Forget. 

God Bless America.




I hate goodbyes.

In fact, I have been known to slip out of my fair share of going-away and retirement parties before I had to say goodbye, because I would just rather not.  I would rather my last few moments with the person be moments of happiness and laughter instead of sobs and tears and runny noses. And those aren’t even final goodbyes, but goodbyes none the same.

So, you can only imagine the hot mess I was at the end of today’s JaSam scenes, right?

Heavens to Murgatroyd! Just when I thought Steve and Kelly had squeezed every last tear out of my swollen, puffy eyes – they go and pour their beautiful hearts into those last thirty seconds they shared at the close of their scenes, and the tears were rolling all over again! Oh, the heartache they make me feel because of the heartache Jason and Sam so obviously STILL feel over not being together! They will forever hold the title of Most Incredible and Believable Supercouple for me! Period.

*blows nose*

You know, once I was able to see through the tears again, and went back to rewatch the scenes, (Thank You, SimplyGH for being such a dependable source for us all) I decided that as JaSam fans, we must find the positives where they can be found, because even though Steve is leaving soon, I will always take the positives over the negatives. And there were definitely some positives for the JaSam Love Story.

First of all, I know it took Jason way too long to step up for his wife (thanks to his headwriter), but doggone it, he is stepping up now – so I’ll take it! More than that, I think the writers are purposely using Jason’s insistence now more than ever because of this statement: (please start at 2:37 to avoid “the” Jiz.)

More important than the fact that Jason is stepping is the fact that at this juncture in their relationship  – at the point when he feels he is closer to losing Sam than ever before – Jason seems not just determined, but downright desperate, to do exactly what he explained to Liz as “the one thing that bring them back together.” 

I think that hearing Sam describe her fantasy about what life could have, would have, should have been, (all while that pathetic, desperate, hoping-for-scraps little mouse looked on nosily) made Jason do something he rarely does – and that’s hope against hope. Only Sam has been able to inspire that in Jason. Time and time again, Sam has awoken something in Jason that he, himself, thought was non-existent. Jason has often said that he thinks in absolutes; he “doesn’t think about what didn’t happen, or wonder if things could have been different.”  In fact, he “can’t stop”. ( See Now Jason is obsessing over what “didn’t happen” when Sam’s birth report was filled out, and “wondering” if things were different than what’s universally believed to have happened that night  – and maybe Sam’s baby is still alive.

Wow. That is The Power Of Love, people!

And I will take it on my screen, and as part of the closing chapters of this JaSam Love Storybook.

Even more amazing? Jason is actually saying these things aloud – to the woman he walked away from time and time again because he could never force this part of his brain to imagine the impossible, think about the improbably, or wonder about what if things were different with her. That was an important detail, friends, and I am hoping that you incredibly sharp viewers didn’t miss it!

Jason was clutching that file of Sam’s like a lifeline; flipping through it, studying the notes, and asking questions, all while Liz looked on in … let’s call it what it was: Disgust. That conversation Jason had with Liz about finding Sam’s baby and getting his family back together was playing through Liz’s whormone-filled little brain with as much speed and details as it replayed in ours! She knows what Jason is thinking, and when she tried to call him out on it, he firmly let her know the “why” didn’t matter. Only that he got it done *fist pump*

No wonder Liz nearly threw the file at him! *giggles*

I love that Sam had to come back to Jason’s room, even after she told him she was gonna go, because it just showed that I love  Sam for all the ways we are alike. 🙂 Sam hates goodbyes, too. She could barely say the word without breaking down, and the word itself literally broke big, bad Stone Cold Jason Morgan down.

The depth of their love for each other was nearly overwhelming – the them and to us. I totally understood what Sam was saying when she said that if they were together while facing this, she could die happy. It was her way of telling Jason that his face was the last she’d want to see. *pulling out the tissues AGAIN*

Jason wanting so badly to touch his wife the way he always has, and struggling to keep himself from doing it, was a beautiful moment. The fact that he couldn’t avoid touching her altogether was even more so. And that embrace, where they were both in tears? RIPPED. MY. FREAKIN’. HEART. OUT.

And when Sam said, “Goodbye”, almost as a question, and Jason choked up and said, “Don’t say that,” I sobbed, because I said the exact same thing.

“Don’t say that!”

When it comes to JaSam, I “Never Can Say  Goodbye”.

Watching them struggle with walking away, not knowing if it would be for the last time made me realize how hard it will be for all of us to watch them do that at the end of Steve Burton’s incredible run as Jason Morgan.

Here come the waterworks…

I am tired of goodbyes. 

What about you?

Don’t forget to use your voice to tell TPTB just that. It still matters. 

Love you guys,

    I’m so heartbroken I don’t know how to start. All I can think about in my head is the question to all of us Beloved JASAM Fans, after everything we’ve been through,gone through ,how do we say good bye without really saying GOODBYE? #tearsbrimmingfrommyeyes

    September 11, 2012 at 1:50 am

    • My dear, sweet Connie.
      We don’t say goodbye. 😥
      I have decided to listen to Jason and not “say that.”
      I jut can’t. So, I will hope that it’s just a “See You Later”,
      and will hold on to the JaSam I knew and loved with the help of YT,
      and my Bella Mafia Family.

    I agree, I dont think we will ever be able to say goodbye to Jasam.
    Especially will all the crap going on in my life (mother is most likely going into hospice).
    I am going to keep writing and calling, I hope we can keep up the fight!

    Love you guys!!

    September 11, 2012 at 2:03 am

    • Dear Rita, My heart is hurting for you. I can only offer that Hospice is a blessing to the patient and the caregiver. I will be praying for you all on this journey, which my husband and I are also walking. Blessings on you all. Sarah

      • Sweet Sarah,
        It’s so good to hear from you. Thinking of and praying for you always.
        Hope the love and concern from your Bella Mafia Family lends you some
        Big hugs from all of us…

        September 11, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    • Rita, I am so very sorry to hear about your mom. *hug*
      I will keep you both in my prayers.
      If you can keep up the fight with all you’re going through,
      then surely we will not let you down!
      Wishing you strength and peace in the days ahead.
      Lots of love, Angelique

    • I agree, my friend!
      I want Jason to stick to his guns regardless of what Desperada says,
      and that he finds their baby! And I want it done right away so that
      they can share some time with their son before Steve takes off.
      I have been haunting TPTB on this. I am sure they rue the day they
      messed with JaSam.
      Yes – JaSam Forever!

    No other couple can break my heart like Jasam.. Nine years of loving them loving each other.. I can’t say goodbye not yet not now not ever.. and because of YT I never have to say “Goodbye” to the most amazing, funny, loving, adventurous, sexy couple I have ever had the pleasure of watching.. there will never be a love so great they are a once in a lifetime force, never to be duplicated.. Stelly magic is what has made Jasam who they are and that can never be recreated by anyone!
    Sam will always be Jason’s heart.. “he has never loved anyone the way he loves her” . and he has shown us even today why that statement remains true after all these years.
    As for Liz .. she is just pathetic!

    Rita.. Prayers to you and your family. Stay strong!

    Peace and Love to all!

      DITTO to everything you said and eping you and your family in prayers. Why can’t Jason just tell Liz I don’t want you. Angst over and over. Why ca’y it be Jasam this last month without Mcdreary and that pathetic Twit.

      September 11, 2012 at 5:22 pm

      • Gina?
        Made me LOL!
        I agree – this Jiz sideline storyline is old and tired.
        The AIC would be wise to just throw the dirt on it and put it
        to rest once and for all.

        September 11, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    • I agree with you, Becky!
      No goodbyes!
      The Stelly Magic never fails to deliver…and I can always tell when they
      give it a little extra for all of us. They are and will always be irreplaceable
      to me!
      Thank goodness we have you as a constant reminder that Sam IS Jason’s Heart! ❤
      Liz=Road Kill. (Can we borrow your truck?)
      Love you!

      September 11, 2012 at 10:06 pm

      • SamJasonsHeart

        Happy to run her over myself.. I’ll stop by and pick you up and we’ll call it a Sunday drive! 😉
        Love you back

    Ditto to everything has said. I would like to add that I think Steve and Kelly were giving each other and us their hearts in those scenes yesterday. I felt that they as actors feel the connection to their characters JUST LIKE WE DO! They’ve shared so many classic moments together through the years, and it shows in ALL THEIR RECENT SCENES. Tears beyond words!

    September 11, 2012 at 7:23 am

    • I agree with you wholeheartedly, Darlene!
      I think because of that connection they’ve shared for so long, there
      was a little of their own heartache over saying “See You Later” to each
      other as co-workers.
      It’s gotta be tough to work so closely with someone for so long and then
      be completely out of each others’ lives *just like that*.
      Yes. They’re hurting like we are!
      *passing the tissue*

    Stelly Magic at it’s most awesomeness yesterday. Whenever Sam enters the room with Jason and Liz..I just totally forget all about Liz being there. Why? because she is an intruder, intruding all a couple that loves beyond imagination and reason. She has no business in the same room with them and Jason will never love her the way he has loved Sam. End Of Story.

    September 11, 2012 at 8:44 am

    • I love your End. Of. Story.
      To me, it is in fact a happy ending to know that his relationship with that
      bundle of insignificance will never come close to being what he shared with
      his wife and the LOVE OF HIS LIFE, Sam.
      And you’re right – her being in the room was less than a blip on the screen.

    Thanks Angelique all i can say so tired of seeing Sam crying and dont have her baby..while these 2 writers just going around the SL and doing other stuff

    September 11, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    • THAT, Sonia, is the million dollar question!
      WHY? WHY? WHY?
      *kicks rock*

    I agree. I also hate that Edward Q. will not know that he has a great grandson named Daniel Edward (his “what if” name). I can only hope that RC will let Jason know that he is a father before he disappears from PC.
    I understand why RC has Liz in the story, for angst. But it isn’t necessary. I realize that he is trying to give all fanbases a reason to watch GH. Thrusting Liz in this Jasam story as anything other than a friend is not needed. There has got be some other man for Liz to sniff around.
    The scenes Monday of Jason and Sam in the hospital were so touching. When Jason hugged Sam, I wanted to cry. You could tell that they loved each other so much. This must be hard for Steve and Kelly. I know that Steve has talked about what it is like to be leaving after all these years. Kelly is busy with DWTS and this is helping her keep her mind off the inevitable, Steve’s last day.
    Thanks Angelique for this blog. Hopefully, our calls, emails and snail mail will not fall on deaf ears.
