This week Courtney gets the news that she's expecting
-"Having Jason's baby is..it's amazing to her," relates ALW. "She
wants to have his baby more than anything. It's just that the timing is bad. Everything is so dangerous right now and she's been so focused on trying to keep everyone calm, taking care of Michael and wanting to help find a still-kidnapped Carly. It couldn't be worse timing" -which is what Jason expresses to his true love just before she gets confirmation "They start talking about Carly's baby and how he couldn't handle that right now - what Sonny is going through..and the last thing Courtney wants to do is distract Jason from his work"-especially when that work involves him taking off with Sonny in search of Carly
-she's in a tough spot - "In one way she's thinking, "I'm just going to tell him. He can't go after Carly," shares the actress, "on the other hand, she's like, it's better if I don't tell him until he gets back. If he's not focused he could get killed.' She's in a pretty
tough spot right now." -so will Courtney make her baby announcement to Jason by week's end? oh boy or girl? stay tuned...
WHAT SCENE HAVE YOU REFUSED TO PLAY AS WRITTEN?
Billy Warlock - "Originally with a pregnant Carly on the stairs [in
2000]..it was insinuated in an outline that AJ pushed her. I said,
"There is no way I will do that". And they didn't fight me at all.
There was another instance where Michael sees a tape that Sonny killed someone and then AJ runs after him on the pier and tells him that Sonny is a killer. I had a real problem with that. That is not cool to do to a little boy. So we compromised and we did it so AJ pulls Jason aside and says under his breath, "Go on tell him. You're afraid. You don't have the guts to tell him." And then Michael overhears it. So it's not like AJ telling him; Michael overhears A.J.. It accomplished the same thing. I understood the drama that they wanted and we compromised. Those are the two instances that I fought for. And fortunately they listened."
NOW THAT ELIZABETH KNOWS THE TRUTH ABOUT RIC, IS THERE ANY HOPE THAT JASON AND LIZ WILL REUNITE? ~ GH: LIZ AND JASON,
TAKE TWO, S.O.WEEKLY, 08-05-2003, P. 10
Now that Liz has found out the truth about Ric will she get back
together with Jason?-"In our national research, we see a large number of people are now for Jason and Courtney," reports ABC Daytime president Brian Frons. "At the same time, I would say there is a significant minority that would be for Jason with Liz. At the risk of pissing off my head writers, I would just tell you that the controversy [over Liz/Jason/Courtney] will be explored further."-Frons stops short of saying Liz and Jason will get back together but he does confirm that their relationship will take a turn for the better. -"Liz owes Jason an apology," the exec notes, "he was the one guy telling her the truth about Ric. Seeing that friendship reconnect and having some reconciliation with those characters is going to be intriguing for viewers." -as for Ric and Liz - "There are more Ric/Liz fans out there than we realized," muses Frons "This guy is going to have to turn his life
around. From Ric's point of view, Liz is probably the first woman who has seen some good in him. But he's going to have to go through a very long process of rehabilitation to be considered worthy of Liz again."
