2006 General Hospital Opinion Articles and Essays!

G.H. Commentary by Rachel

Port Charles’ Town Crier
The Marrying Man

The year was 1996 when Jasper “Jax” Jacks arrived on our screens as an Australian Corporate Raider Playboy.  He was Jacks…Jasper Jacks, the perfect replacement for James Bond (minus the spy element).  Ruthless in the boardroom and smooth in the bedroom, that was Jax.  Ten years later, Jax has become unrecognizable.  He’s the male version of Erica Kane, spending more time in the bedroom then the boardroom.

It seems that Jax hasn’t lost his mojo, but definitely has lost his business sense.  If not, how would the viewers know?  Have we seen Jax wine and dine some one other than his latest female conquest?  How about corporate take-overs, has there been any?  No, but I can tell you what there has been…weddings.

Since Jax has been in Port Charles, he has been the groom in six weddings (not to mention the wedding off screen with Miranda).  Out of those weddings, he’s actually been legally married four times (his marriage to Brenda was invalid).  He’s also been divorced four times, with at least three of those divorces taking place six months (or sooner) within the marriage.  Of course, this is a soap and marriages are not supposed to last until the end of time, but come on.  Last year this time Jax’s marriage to Courtney was already over after four months.  Now, he’s going to marry Carly.

If this union cultivates into a marriage, can you say divorce?  Besides her marriages to Sonny, Carly’s marriage to Lorenzo lasted a month (give or take) and her marriage to A.J. was a complete nightmare.  She’s extremely loyal to Jason and (most of the time) to Sonny as well, which means trouble.  Yet, that’s beside the point.  The point is I want 1996 Jax back and not the shell of a man that is on our screens.

Sure characters have to evolve, but this chase the woman, conquer the woman and marry her, then loss her cycle must end.  If it doesn’t, I’m afraid that Jax will become nothing more than a joke.  As it is, I lost all respect for the character after he humiliated Brenda at the altar.  I completely stopped following his storylines when he chased after Courtney.

Now, I’m disgusted with his pursuit of Carly, which makes me believe that all hope is gone for a once promising character named Jax.
