A Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane…For Auld Lang Syne
Happy Sunday morning, GHers!
It’s the last Sunday of the year, and as I look back – not just at the year gone by, but the years gone by for JaSam, I cannot help but feel nostalgic in a good way.
Jason and Sam gave us such great times, and such wonderful years, that not even this past (hard) year could take that from me. And it shouldn’t take that from us. I think we can all agree that even after the nightmare the new regime put us through, the moment Jason and Sam were back together and admitting to each other that they had always been in love, we were back in love with them.
I have heard about Steve’s rumored move to The Young and The Restless, but I have to be honest in telling you that my reaction may not be what most expect it to be. Sure, I want Steve’s Jason back at GH, because I want him back with Sam and Danny. I think all of you know that, as I have made no secret about that. However, I get that Steve made a choice that was best for his family when he decided to move out to Tennessee. From what we’ve been told, I can only assume that there was some back and forth before he left GH because he wanted more time to be with his family. GH wasn’t willing – or able – to concede on that. Apparently, if the rumors for Y&R are true, Steve’s new role is not the kind of role that would require the time and commitment that his role (our favorite) on GH would.
Does it suck? Yeah. Am I disappointed? Abso-FREAKIN-lutely! But, you know what? As a parent, I totally get it. After years of keeping a career front and center, there comes a time when you realize that your career shouldn’t always be Number One. As a professional, I understand. After 20+ years of doing your job with such a high level of commitment and loyalty, you just think that you’ve earned some cooperation. And rightly so.
If Y&R is willing to give Steve what he needs at the moment, who am I to begrudge him the right to work a little? Especially since after being forced into retirement because of a serious injury, I totally get how desperately you miss feeling like you’re doing that one thing you were meant to do. I wish Steve all the best, but I am still holding on to the hope that GH finds a way to bring him back on whatever terms work for him and his family. I do believe that GH will always be home for him, and that he really would want to come back – even if for the fans.
That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it!
Now, getting back to this week’s holiday-themed Drive. There’s a little old and a little new, and some of what people came up with in the past few days…but it’s ALL “For Auld Lang Syne” (For old times’ sake). A couple this perfect deserves to be remembered for the magic they created onscreen…not the headlines involving their personal lives.
That’s what these vids do…they honor the Magic of JaSam. I hope you all enjoy the Drive, and that the year ahead brings us something to be happy about again. It wouldn’t be the first time a New Year does that for us JaSam fans! 🙂 But, let;’s not take for granted that we have lots of new moments to look back on this New Year’s!
