Finally, some good news on GENERAL HOSPITAL! Little Jake, the tow-headed, all-American nine-year-old boy that Lucky raised as his own with Elizabeth and was long believed to be dead was actually alive!

Luke wasn't sure what to make of Helena's story about Jake being snatched after he was supposedly run down in the middle of the street. All these years, Luke placed the blame square on his own shoulders as the man who killed his own "grandson" while driving intoxicated. But none of that was true. When Luke saw the boy playing in the main mansion on Cassadine Island, he wasn't sure what to believe. Was Helena just weaving a tale... or was it really Jake?

When Lucky arrived, all it took was one look to confirm the boy was who Helena said he was. Lucky was overcome with emotions and a little uncertain about what to do next. While Laura took Jake for a walk to tell him that they were heading back to Port Charles, where he was born, Luke and Lucky had a heart-to-heart. They shared their mutual admiration, respect and love for each other, as father and son who had been through it all. When Laura and Little Jake returned, they realized that the next step was to reunite Elizabeth with her son.

That day had already been a heartbreaking one for Elizabeth. Patrick gave Josslyn a clean bill of health, prompting a grateful Carly to embrace Liz and thank her for donating her son Jake's kidney that, ultimately, saved Joss' life years earlier. Although it was far from Carly's intention, Liz relived that horrible day when she had to turn off her son's life support.

When Liz got home, she was an emotional wreck. Big Jake (aka Jason) tried to easy her stress with a shoulder massage, but Liz's poignant cross with Carly at the hospital was something she just couldn't shake. Liz tried to camouflage her pain by telling [Big] Jake she loved him... and he responded in kind. Liz sat alone for a few minutes, allowing herself to cry. Then there was a knock at the door. It was Lucky... and she'd soon find out that their "dead" son was with him!

Carly stopped in to see Lulu and brought Rocco with her. Too many days had passed since Lulu had held her baby son in her arms, and she was thrilled that they were together again. Lulu set Carly straight about her non-affair with Dillon, the one that Dante erroneously told Sonny about. Lulu told Carly that she hadn't been screwing around with Dillon, she was off saving her brother's life! But in the midst of their conversation, Carly let slip that Dante kissed Valerie.

At the same time, Dante was filling Valerie in on the truth about Lulu's trip with Dillon and that her "affair" with her old flame was nothing of the sort. It was all a big, unfortunate misunderstanding. Dante wanted to make things work with his wife... and never let her know that he slept with her cousin. Valerie covered her pain and acceded to his request to keep their night together to herself, but it was more than obvious that she had fallen in love with him. When Dante returned home, he was completely unaware that he was walking right into a confrontation with his wife!

Monday on GH, Elizabeth receives some mindboggling news, Lulu has a few choice words for Dante and Monica has a reunion... with "Jason"! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

The Truth About Little Jake's Death!

JakeDeathStare.jpg

Even as fans of GENERAL HOSPITAL have been reeling from the news that Elizabeth's son, Jake, is alive, newer viewers have been left scratching their heads. Need the 411 on what the fuss is all about? Read on!

Elizabeth was in one of those places in her life where nothing was going right. She and Nikolas had been seeing each other, and the idea of exploring where that would go appealed to her. However, her wishy-washy ways caught up with her, and Nikolas decided that enough was enough. Ignoring his romantic feelings for Liz, Nik instead chose to pursue Brook Lynn.

With Nikolas out of the picture, Liz turned her attention to Lucky. But he, too, had moved on, with Siobhan. Liz was left facing the prospect of being alone... at least until she saw an opportunity to make her own happiness. After learning that Lucky was planning to marry Siobhan, Liz ordered up a paternity test which she hoped would prove that Lucky -- and not Nikolas -- was the father of her son, Aiden. She assumed that finding out the boy was his would bring Lucky running back to her.

The evening Liz received the paternity test results, it seemed as if everyone who was anyone in Port Charles was on the same road. Brenda and Sonny were leaving for their honeymoon; a buzzed Luke was rushing to Lucky and Siobhan's wedding; Carly was desperate to get an ailing Josslyn at the hospital; Sam briefly lost control of her car when she was hit with the after-effects of a concussion; and Lisa was in hot pursuit of Robin, who had found incriminating evidence against her.

Back at the Webber house, Liz opened the envelope to process the test results and what they would mean to her future. What she didn't realize was that the front door to the house was open and Jake was nowhere in sight. As she ran to the porch, she called out to him. But it was too late. He had run into the street and was hit by a passing car.

At the hospital, Liz and Lucky found it impossible to say farewell to Jake, and postponed turning off the machines. Liz angrily rejected Jason's request that they donate Jake's kidney to save Josslyn's life, but by end of day, the grieving mother had changed her mind. After talking with Lucky, Liz realized that saving a child's life was what was most important. As the shock of Jake's death set in, the news got even worse for Lucky. A police investigation showed that Luke had been the person responsible for running the boy down. Lucky confronted his father, asking if he was drunk that night. Luke insisted that although he'd had a little something to drink that night, he was in control, like always. Luke was in severe denial of the part alcohol played in the boy's death. Because there was no proof that Luke was impaired, no charges were filed.
