Last Friday, General Hospital viewers were given a quite a jolt when the presumed dead Jerry Jacks showed up very much alive and in ca-hoots with none other than, Dr. Ewen Keenan (Nathin Butler). So what is going on? How and why is Jerry involved and responsible for the plot to kidnap Robin, and make all of her loved ones believe she is “dead”?
TV Guide spoke to the Evil Mr. Jacks portrayer, the talented Sebastian Roche to get the scoops. And in their chat, much more is revealed including another sinister plot this week putting another favorite or two lives in danger! Here are a few excerpts below!
Sebastian on what Jerry’s plan of revenge exactly is: “He intends to terrorize Port Charles on a massive scale and it’s going to affect every character on the show. It’s very deadly. I’m quite interested to see how he’s going to pull this off!”
Sebastian on how Jerry pulled all the strings to orchestrate the faux-death of Robin, starting with the lab explosion: “ Basically it was an elaborate concealment. Ewen found an anonymous corpse and switched it with Robin’s body, did a little DNA tampering, and that’s how he managed to make everyone believe Robin died. Jerry was only peripherally on the scene but he was manipulating Ewen, operating the puppet strings.”
Sebastian on how is Jerry manipulating Ewen to do his dirty work: “I don’t know that I can reveal it yet but Jerry has a pretty big piece of news about Ewen — a piece of personal news. So we’re talking strong blackmail. Jerry is manipulating quite a few people, Ewen being the main one.”
So what do you think about the return of Jerry Jacks? Do you like the idea of him being behind Robin’s kidnapping and the elaborate plan to make her family and loved ones think she is dead? Do you still think there is another twist coming and perhaps Jerry is working for someone else from Anna, Patrick and Robin’s past? Who do you now think Ewen is related? Weigh-in!
