After Jason recovered from the nearly fatal gunshot wound he suffered during a mob altercation involving Sonny (Maurice Benard), he vowed to avoid all mob entanglements. He promised Sam to find safe and stable employment and stop risking his life with the mob.

Franco Is Keeping Betsy’s Jason Morgan Twin Bombshell From Jason And Sam

Franco and Liz have been debating whether to share with Jason and Sam the information about Jason’s Twin, Drew, that Franco learned from his adoptive mother, Betsy (Deborah Strang).

Franco had kept the information from Liz but he eventually shared it after he concluded that a trust issue could arise between them if Liz discovers the truth herself and realizes that Franco has been keeping a secret from her.

After Franco shared Betsy’s information about Jason Morgan’s twin with Liz, she insisted that he would have to share it with Jason and Sam. However, Franco thought it was wiser not to tell Jason because it could unsettle their lives after they just recovered from a crisis and were trying to settle down to a stable life.

Franco reasoned that Jason’s twin was dead anyway so there was no need to bother him about it.

However, Franco does not realize that he could be setting Jason and Sam up for the shock of their lives. As viewers know, Betsy lied to Franco when she said Jason Morgan’s twin, Drew, had died of a heart condition. Viewers also know that Patient 6 (Steve Burton), who is likely Jason Morgan’s twin, has escaped from captivity in Russia and will appear in Port Charles during the week of October 16.

Michael Paranoia About Nelle Grows

After Michael (Chad Duell) discovers that Nelle (Chloe Lanier) had won swimming medals at high school, he confronts her and demands an explanation why she lied to the police that she is not a good swimmer.
