Can The Real Jasper Jax Please Stand Up?

Where is Jasper Jax? Where is the Jax that completely dissed Brenda at the alter after he saw her “kissing” Sonny, the Jax that played Sky for Brenda, the Jax that wouldn’t put up with Courtney’s mess, or the Jax that was fun and free when he was married to Alexis. Who is this imposter that they have posted up with Carly, I-can-cheat-on-you-however-many-times-I-want-and-you-better-be-okay-with-it, Corinthos, Alcazar, soon-to-be Jax? I cannot be the only one that thinks this is the most ridiculous, character stripping triangle redux of General Hospital history?

In his effort to appease or accept Carly, Jax has seemed to completely loose whatever shred of ruthlessness he ever had. In some respects, that would be great if he wasn’t such a complete and utter patsy. His love, total acceptance, and lack of judgment for Carly has detrimentally emasculated him. Let’s face it; pretty boys have to have an edge that makes them desirable, an air that makes them seem untamable. Jax has become nothing but a pretty puppy dog, nipping at Carly’s crushing heals, making the whole Sonny/Carly/Jax triangle that much unbearable. Never mind that it is a poor regurgitation of the whole Sonny/Brenda/Jax saga which was full of passion, steam, and anticipation.

Sonny is equally intolerable in his nefarious pursuit of Carly. I thought I would enjoy seeing Sonny grovel and beg for Carly back, but his antics are just so preposterous that it makes him pathetic. When Carly initially declared that she wasn’t going to date either of them, I was gearing up to see an empowered woman standing on her own two feet with these great, powerful men wooing her. I wanted something with class and dignity (soap opera style), instead I got sleezy. I cannot reconcile Carly’s totally disregard for Jax when she slept with Sonny with how Jax just seemed to easily forgive her to the point that he felt comfortable enough to propose.

The Sonny/Carly/Jax saga has killed Jasper Jax as General Hospital fans have known him. It is time to cure him of his Cerebral Carlyitis so that he can go back to being the sexy, strong Aussi that fans loved.
