Chief Andrew "Drew" Cain is a fictional character on the ABC soap opera, General Hospital. He is the son of the late, Dr. Alan Quartermaine and his late mistress, Susan Moore and the adoptive son of Dr. Monica Quartermaine. He is the identical twin of former mob boss, Jason Morgan and the illegal adoptive brother of the late reformed serial killer turned art therapist, Franco Baldwin.
Before Miller joined the series, a stand-in actor played Jason from August 12 to September 25, 2014.
Steve Burton appeared as Drew in old photos from 2017 to 2019 and he also played Drew in flashbacks in 2019.
In 2021, the role was recast with former All My Children alum, Cameron Mathison, who's voice was first heard as Drew on August 16, 2021. Mathison made his first appearance as Drew on August 17, 2021.
Rumors of Miller's casting on "GH" started to surface in June of 2014, when TV Guide's Michael Logan tweeted about the possibility.
On September 2, 2014, after months of speculation, executive producer Frank Valentini announced on Twitter that three-time Daytime Emmy award-winning actor Billy Miller, formerly known for his roles on All My Children as Richie Novak (2007-08) and The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott (2008-14), would join the cast as Jason.
Miller is a three-time Daytime Emmy award winning actor.
In 2010 and 2013, Miller brought home two Daytime Emmy's for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series and one in 2014 for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, all for his work on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott.
Although Jason had been back on canvas since August 12, 2014, Miller didn't make his first appearance until October 1, 2014.
On July 12, 2017, a GH source stated on Twitter that "Miller is currently in contract negotiations while Burton (the former Jason) is signing a long term deal. No word who will play "Real Jason" yet."
Due to his contract negotiations, Miller was off screen for about three weeks (Aug 31-Sep 21, 2017) while his character was in a coma (a contract coma).
On December 1, 2017, it was revealed that Miller's character was actually Jason's twin, Andrew Cain and Burton was Jason.
On May 22, 2019, Soaps.com announced that Billy Miller (along with Tamara Braun) would temporarily be offscreen for storyline reasons when their characters head to Mt. Kilimanjaro during the week of May 27-31. They were last seen on May 28 and they made appearances on June 4 and June 12 before they returned on June 17.
On June 15, 2019, rumors began swirling around that Billy Miller may soon be leaving the show, although nothing has been confirmed yet.
On July 28, 2019, it was confirmed that Billy Miller will exit the series and that he had already taped his final scenes, putting his last air-date sometime in August.
On April 16, 2021, it was revealed that Mathison will officially join GH this summer, although it's unknown who he will be playing. He has reportedly said in an interview that he is not playing Ryan Lavery.
On July 2, 2021, Mathison revealed on Instagram that he's officially in the General Hospital studio filming scenes. In the picture, Mathison was sporting a beard and looked a little beat up which could be another hint that he's taking over the role of Drew.
On August 8, 2021, it was confirmed by Daytime Confidential and Entertainment Weekly that Mathison will indeed be playing a recast Drew. On August 16, 2021, Mathison's voice was first heard as Drew when he called Sam.
Drew and his twin brother Jason were conceived through an affair his father, Alan Quartermaine had with Susan Moore. When Susan was several months pregnant she fled from Port Charles to New York City to stay with her cousin, Heather Webber. Susan knew that Alan was coming after her to take her back to Port Charles, so that he could raise their child.
She was so afraid of being found, she hadn't had an ultrasound in months. Heather brought in Nurse Betsy Frank to make sure that everything was alright with the baby. When Betsy examined Susan, she heard two heartbeats and Susan soon found out that she was pregnant with twins.
Susan was inconsolable and knew Alan was close to tracking her down. She didn't know how she could go on the run with two babies. Heather pointed out that the Quartermaines knew nothing about the second baby and there was no reason for them to find out. She suggested that Susan go back to PC with one of the babies and settle the custody and then keep the other baby. The first born was Jason and Susan took him back to PC. The second born, Drew stayed with Betsy, who offered to watch over him until Susan could return.
After Susan died and Heather did not return, Betsy decided to raise Drew for the long haul and she raised him and Heather's son Bobby, later known as Franco Baldwin, as brothers. Betsy claims he and Bobby were inseparable; they were closer than brothers and the best of friends since birth, Andy always use to follow Bobby around the house and their bond was so strong that Drew's first word was Bobby's name. Franco himself claims that "I remember the feeling surrounding [their bond]. Like I wasn't alone. Like I had a friend." On one Christmas, Drew gave Franco a rabbit's foot key chain for luck and declared him to be his best friend ever. Franco kept the key chain with him for decades as a reminder of his brother. Despite his conditioning, in February 2018, when Drew saw it again it seemed familiar to him, hinting that he never forgot about their unshakeable bond.
Betsy claimed that at the age of 3, Drew died from a heart defect and she left town with Bobby to start over. Long after Drew was sent away, Franco made a painting that represents both him and Drew and it would become his most cherished painting. On October 18, 2017, Betsy admitted that she lied about the heart defect and Drew was alive, but she had to give him away after Franco pushed him down the stairs.
However, in early 2018, Franco begins to unlock his blocked memory and on April 9, he finally remembered that he was molested by Jim Harvey a number of times and that he knew Drew was going to be next, so he saved him when he accidentally pushed him down the flight of stairs, when trying to hide him in the basement of their house. After Drew recovered from the accident, Betsy made everyone think he died and sent him away to a group home to protect him from Jim, while she and Franco left town to run from him.
Little is known about Drew's past, except that after leaving Betsy's care, Drew grew up in a group home and later graduated from Sawyer High School in 1993. At some point in his life, he took up the last name: Cain. On August 16, 2019, Franco (through Drew's implanted memories) revealed that Drew grew up in New York and he saw photos of his twin Jason in the newspaper. Drew soon done his research and learned all about their parents. He believed that his parents didn't want him but they kept Jason to raise.
It's revealed on November 27, 2017, that he became a Navy SEAL and was stationed in San Diego, California. It was also revealed that in 2001, he and Dr. Kim Nero were temporary lovers. On December 26, 2017, Kim revealed to Sam she always felt that Drew was very lonely while growing up.
Through out the years, he became a highly decorated war hero till he mysteriously vanished in July of 2012. Everyone believed he deserted his post, but he was ambushed by Hank Archer and delivered to international terrorist Helena Cassadine to be used in her devious conspiracy with her allies, Cesar Faison and his son Henrik. For unknown reasons, his military files have been redacted. On March 8, 2021, it was revealed that Henrik (AKA Peter August) was the one who paid Hank to ambush Drew and deliver him to Helena.
In 2014, Drew (as Jason) made his way back to Port Charles but was hit by a car driven by Ava Jerome which left him severely injured. After undergoing extensive surgery and plastic surgery to his face, he woke up with amnesia and started calling himself "Jake Doe." In November 2015, "Jake" found out he was Jason Morgan but he still had no memories prior to 2014. He eventually reunited with Sam in early 2016 and he regained his memories as Jason in May of that same year.
After 5 years of disappearance, Jason returns to town in late 2017 and it's revealed that he has a twin. Soon everyone learns that the person thought to be Jason since 2014 was actually his twin, Andrew Cain, who was conditioned by Dr. Andre Maddox into believing he was Jason, under orders from Faison and his son Henrik, later known as Peter August, because Jason was brain damaged and could not be controlled, so they had him replaced with Drew to be a sleeper agent.
He had a son named Oscar Nero-Quartermaine with his former lover, Dr. Kim Nero.
On December 8, Kim told Drew that he is Oscar's father and Kim found out she was pregnant shortly after Drew was deployed and didn't think he would've welcomed a child with a woman he barely knew, so she decided not to tell him, although she did try to contact the Navy. However, her attempts to contact the Navy were unsuccessful, due to the fact that she was not a family member. On April 29, 2019 (shown on May 1, 2019), Oscar died in his sleep because of an inoperable Grade IV Glioblastoma.
Although he is very close to all of his friends, Drew is probably closest to Franco. They both deeply loved each other so much as toddlers that Franco protected him from getting molested by Jim Harvey like he was. Unbeknownst to either of them, they reunited in late 2014 and over the years they shared an animosity towards each other. However, in early 2018, after learning the truth on what Harvey did to Franco and how Franco protected him, his whole perspective of Franco changed.
Their long lost friendship began to rekindle after Drew saved Franco from Harvey during a confrontation that led to Jim attempting to kill Franco, Drew shot the monster dead and made him pay for what he did to his oldest friend and protector. Overtime, the brothers slowly began recovering their forgotten relationship. After Drew's memories were implanted into Franco, Drew whispered to a comatose Franco that the memories of his past life meant nothing in comparison to their unshakable bond. On November 15, 2019, Franco (with Drew's memories) believed that without Franco, he wouldn't have been able to become a war hero. On March 9, 2021, Franco died after being fatally shot by Peter August.
Drew is close with his biological family and shares a close relationship with his step-mother, Dr. Monica Quartermaine, who later on adopted him in October 2018. Eventually, Drew came to accept and respect Jason, even if he doesn't see him as a friend or a brother. However, when their mutual enemy, Shiloh, wanted to implant Drew's memories into Jason, Drew was genuinely concerned for his safety, even referring to Jason as his brother.
After Sam divorces Jason in early 2018, she and Drew officially marry. However, their marriage did not last long, for after learning she loves both him and Jason, Drew left Sam and the two got divorced on July 5, 2018. He and Sam have remained friends afterwards as they continue to co-parent Scout.
After a year long search, on December 10, 2018, Drew finally got his hands on his memory drive. However, Drew is resolute on not getting his memories back as he'll lose all the memories of the past 6 years; particularly having his daughter and meeting his deceased son.
On October 9, 2019, Drew was declared dead in absentia by the WSB. However, since his body wasn't found, there's a chance he's still alive and out there somewhere.
On January 31, 2014, Victor Cassadine arrives on Robin Scorpio-Drake's doorstep and announces that he is the new head of the WSB. He wants Robin to bring his sister-in-law, Helena Cassadine and nephew, Stavros Cassadine back to life, as they are not completely dead and their bodies were being preserved in the Cassadines cryogenic lab. When Robin asks Victor why she should help him, he goes on to tell her that if she helps Helena and Stavros, she would also be helping her friend, Jason Morgan, who is actually alive. Victor explains to Robin that Faison wanted control of Sonny's territory and to do that, he knew he had to get Jason out of the way, so he shot Jason and kicked his body into the water. Despite this action, Faison knew Jason could be a valuable asset to him in the future, so he had a group of men waiting offshore and they pulled Jason's body out of the water. After Jason was pulled from the water, Victor claims he was taken to the same Swiss clinic, where Robin, A.J. Quartermaine, Stavros Cassadine and Duke Lavery were all either held against their will or treated.
When the clinic was raided in late 2012 and Duke was found, Victor says Dr. Liesl Obrecht arranged to have their most valuable patients transported elsewhere. Jason was put into Helena's care along with Stavros, and Helena put Jason into a cryogenic stasis. Victor goes on to say that Jason was healing from the gun shot wound, but was still debilitated which made him easier to manage. Robin doubts Victor's story, but Victor is adamant that he is telling the truth and Jason is not dead, only in a cryogenic sleep. Robin demands to see concrete proof that Victor has Jason, citing that is the only way she will consider his offer. Victor assures Robin he will give her the necessary evidence she needs in due time, but Patrick and Emma were on their way home, so they would have to meet at another time. Before Victor leaves he warns Robin that she cannot tell anyone about his project or else she will fail in saving Jason. Victor returns a day later with a DVD that he shows Robin as proof that Jason is still alive. After watching the DVD, Robin seems to believe that Jason is alive, but is still torn at leaving her family. She is unsure of her decision until she meets Jason's son, Danny in the park. After meeting Danny, Robin decides to accept Victor's offer and bring Helena and Stavros back, so she can also save Jason. Unbeknownst to Robin, Jason had actually been switched with his identical twin brother, Andrew Cain. On March 4, Robin confirms that "Jason" is alive.
On August 12, 2014, Victor injected "Jason" with a new medicine that Robin had invented. At first it appeared Jason was recovering, but then his vitals started to drop. Robin used a defibrillator on Jason, until Victor's goons held her back. Victor assumed Jason was dead and went to close the lid on the cryogenic capsule, but Jason's hand grabbed Victor's wrist, confirming he is alive and awake. Victor then revealed his plans to use Jason for his own agenda. On September 12, Jason is seen struggling to gets free of his restraints and eventually he breaks free and knocks out William Eichner. Then Jason finds Robin chained up and uses a gun to shoot the chain and free her. They then embraced and "Jason" reveals that he can't talk.
They prepare to leave the clinic, but they are stopped by Helena Cassadine. Helena says she has big plans for "Jason" and Robin, and she tries to take them, but "Jason" kills Helena's goons and they escape the clinic just before it blows up. "Jason" and Robin steal a car and get on the road back to Port Charles. Robin fills "Jason" in on some things, including telling "Jason" that Danny is his biological son. When they near Port Charles, Robin decides it would be too dangerous to their families to go straight home, because Helena could still be on their tail. Instead, Robin heads to The Metro Court to find her mother and fill her in, and "Jason" goes to Sonny's house. "Jason" makes it to Sonny's front door but is kidnapped by Helena's goons. He is then seen in a car with them but manages to jump out of the moving vehicle.
"Jason" finds the road but is then run over Ava Jerome. Ava got out of the car she wanted to call 911 but if she did Sonny would find her she calls Jordan Ashford. Jordan tells Ava that she will take the blame since Ava was driving her car during the accident and let Ava get away. "Jason" is rushed to the hospital, Elizabeth is one of the nurse working on him but she doesn't recognize him because of injures. "Jason" flat lines, but they get him back and he goes into surgery. "Jason" was in surgery for over 36 hours and had to have several reconstructive surgeries, including facial reconstruction to repair all the damage. On the same day that "Jason" got out of surgery, Sam was at the hospital taking Danny for a check-up. As Sam and Danny are leaving the check-up, Danny wanders into Jason's room and grabs his "father's" hand.
Sam chases after Danny and finds him in the room with "Jason". She tries to get Danny to let go of the "stranger's" hand, but he refuses. Elizabeth arrives a little while later and gets Danny to let go of Jason's hand by offering him candy. Sam and Liz talk about the "John Doe" patient and his accident. Sam spends some time holding "Jason's" hand and talking to him. She tells him that she doesn't know what it is about him, but she wants to see him get better. Right after Sam asks him to get better, "Jason's" vitals spike momentarily. Liz says Sam can stay with the patient while she goes to get his doctor, because Sam talking to him was doing him good. But Sam was unable to stay, because she had to go to Amsterdam for a case she's working on.
Liz leaves to get the doctor and Sam and Danny say goodbye to "John Doe," unaware that it was "Jason" they were talking to the entire time. When "Jason" wakes up, he has trouble remembering what happened to him. He remembered the accident but cannot remember his own name. He has memory flashes of Liz and "their" son, Jake, which leads him to believe that his name is Jake. On October 13, "Jason's" bandages are removed. During this time, he and Elizabeth bond and he also has an encounter with "his" wife and son. After being kicked out of the hospital, "Jason" moves in with Elizabeth. He also spends Thanksgiving with Sam and Danny.
In December, Helena tells "Jason" that who he really is and that she is his boss. She orders him to forget who he is, to kidnap Sam and help Faison escape. He then goes to the police station wearing a mask and a black suit. He abducts her at gunpoint, but is stopped by police, who command him to let Sam go. He refuses unless he is given the keys to the Pentonville van so Faison can escape. "Jason" shoots Det. Nathan West and the police hand him over the keys. Jason knocks Sam out and evades the police in the Pentonville van. Later, Helena helps Faison flee the country with his daughter. Weeks later, Sam suspects "Jason" as the gunman, but he denies it and suddenly forgets what he did to Sam.
On Christmas Eve, "Jason" almost kisses Liz under the mistletoe, but Ric Lansing (Liz's ex-husband) interrupts them. On New Years Eve, after talking with Ric, "Jason" decides to move out of Elizabeth's house so he can start to find out who he is and also to find a better job. After he leaves Elizabeth's house, he goes to the Metro Court Hotel to see if Carly Corinthos can give him any job so he can pay rent. Carly asks why he needs to pay rent and Jason tells her that he moved out of Elizabeth's house because he might have family out there somewhere and also because of Ric. Carly tells "Jason" that Ric isn't a good person and she tells him she doesn't like Ric because of things he did to her in the past. "Jason" says that he doesn't like him either. Then Ric and Elizabeth show up because of the New Years Eve party and Elizabeth was shocked to see him there. Carly tells them that "Jason" works at the hotel as a bartender. When Carly gave him the drinks to pass around, he runs into Sam and Patrick. Sam asks if he works here and he tells her that Carly hired him. He say's he will miss her accusing him holding her hostage at gunpoint. At midnight, "Jason" watches everyone kissing and feels sad as he looks at Ric and Elizabeth kissing. Carly comes over and kisses him to comfort him.
In January, Carly gives him a room at the Metro Court. The next morning Carly comes to "Jason's" room and they end up having breakfast together. Later on, while "Jason" is talking to Carly, she reads the newspaper about the gunmen that grabbed Sam. Carly sees that "Jason" upset and "Jason" finally tells Carly that the reason Sam doesn't like him is because she thinks he's the gunman. "Jason" tells her that he had a flashback of him grabbing Sam. He also tells her that around the same time the gunmen was grabbing Sam, he was out looking for a job. Carly says maybe Sam's getting into his head. Carly tells Jason to go see Dr. Kevin Collins.
Later on, Carly takes "Jason" to see Kevin and they ran into Sam. Sam and Carly talk while "Jason" goes to the office to see Kevin. When he gets there Helena is sitting in Kevin's chair and she tells him to sit down. "Jason" tells Helena the Sam suspects him of being the gunman. Helena tells Jason that it is true he did grab Sam. "Jason" says that he's leaving, but Helena tells him not too so he doesn't and can't. "Jason" asks why she's doing this to him why not have stationed somewhere until his next mission. She tells him she does have another mission for him. Later on, "Jason" comes out of the office and tells Sam and Carly that Kevin says the flashbacks were nothing and that they were just planted there. Then, there is a flashback about Helena ordering "Jason" to kill his own wife.
Later on, "Jason" is going through a bag with a gun in it, when Carly knocks on the door so he quickly hides it. He opens the door and Carly hugs him. She is upset because Michael still hasn't forgiven her. "Jason" and Carly talk and he offers to talk to Michael for her but she says that it’s not the best idea because Michael actually likes "Jason". Later on, "Jason" is seen on the pier having a flashback of Helena ordering him to kill Sam. Elizabeth comes by and she invites him to dinner since Ric and Molly were out of town. "Jason" tells her that it isn't good idea because he’s afraid that he won’t be able to stop himself from wanting more.
A couple of days later, "Jason" goes to Sam's penthouse and breaks in after Sam and Patrick go upstairs. He sees pictures of Sam and himself with his old face and he starts to hear Sam’s voice in his head. Then Robin appears and Jason stands up to shoot her but she tells him that she’s not really there. Robin asks him why he's doing this. He tells her Helena told him too and she asks him why he's taking orders from Helena. Just then the phone rings and it was Helena calling to see if the job was done and he says no. "Jason" tells her that Sam has company so she tells him kill both of them. After the call, Robin disappears, so "Jason" goes upstairs to kill Sam and Patrick. When he opens the door and sees them in bed, he starts to have flashbacks of "him" and Sam on the night he got shot, them putting their wedding rings back on, and fooling around in bed. Sam and Patrick head for the shower while "Jason" enters the room and has more flashbacks of Sam giving him the phoenix before he left. He hears Sam and Patrick coming out of the shower so he takes the phoenix and leaves. "Jason" goes to the docks and has more memories be he passes out.
The next day paramedics find him and take him to the hospital. Lucas and Elizabeth treat him for hypothermia and a laceration on his forehead. Elizabeth calls Carly, who arrives soon after demanding to see "Jason". Carly talks to "Jason" and then she looks in the bag that was found with him and finds a gun. She asks him if he has ever seen it before and he says no. She then pulls out a ski mask. "Jason" doesn't know where he got any of those things. He is starting to wonder if he took Sam hostage. Carly tells Jason that they are going to see Kevin again. Patrick and Elizabeth come back and Carly leaves with the bag because "Jason" begged her not to tell anyone. Later on, Carly and "Jason" are seen in Kevin'a office talking about his memories. Carly also finds a phone in the bag. "Jason" tells her that he has never seen or used it before. Carly checks the phone to see if any calls or texts were on the phone and there are but they come up as unknown calls. "Jason" is eager to get answers, so Carly goes to find Kevin.
"Jason" gets a call from Helena and she tells him to meet her. "Jason" leaves and goes to the graveyard. Helena asked him why Sam and Patrick are not dead and he tells her a woman stopped him. Helena figures out that Robin was the one that stopped him in his head. So Jason asks why she's hurting people and what Sam means to him. Helena tells him to forget about killing Sam, she has another mission for him. Later on, it is revealed in a flashback that Helena ordered "Jason" to put a bomb on The Haunted Star. "Jason" is later seen on the docks when a delivery guy comes along, and he attacks the guy, drags him away and takes his place. "Jason" walks onto the Haunted Star and introduces himself to Lulu, who tells him where to put the drinks.
Meanwhile at the police station after Kevin revealed to Carly that he never had a meeting with "Jason", Carly figures out that "Jason" lied but that something is wrong. She asks Nathan if Dante was there, he said no that he was called on another police matter. Carly tells Nathan she thinks that "Jason" was the one that broke Faison out of prison and she shows him the evidence. Nathan finds the gun and has it tested against the bullet the doctors pulled out of him and the gun came back as a match. Meanwhile back on the Haunted Star, "Jason" plants the bomb behind the bar. Helena calls "Jason" and he tells her that the job is done. Maxie calls Nathan to see if he’s coming he says yes he just got held up. Maxie tells him to take his time because Jason is there. Later on, Nathan comes to the Haunted Star and arrests "Jason". He is then taken into police custody where Sam wants to question him about breaking into her apartment. Afterwards, he tells her that Helena ordered him to do all those things, including planting a bomb in The Haunted Star. Sam then calls Lucas and the bomb is safety taken of the boat. After remembering, Sam continues to ask him questions. Before he can answer, he is attacked by Patrick Drake and then he pins Patrick to a table.
The next day, Elizabeth goes to see "Jason" in jail and is shocked to hear all the things he has done plus he lied to her. "Jason" said he was sorry but she wanted explanation for everything. He told that he doesn't remember all the things he did and he says he thinks Helena has been controlling him. After hearing him out, she believed it because Helena did the same thing to Lucky. "Jason" was relieved that she trusted him but he asked how they were going to prove it. Elizabeth says there's one person that Helena could trust and that was Nikolas. After talking to Nikolas he agreed to help her out. Later on, Helena agreed to Nikolas term's. Patrick examined "Jason's" head and found a chip planted in his brain. Elizabeth went to tell the good news to "Jason" and they went to the hospital. When they got there Patrick told him that after looking over the scans of his brain he said he couldn't do the surgery because he might kill him if something goes wrong. After talking with Elizabeth, he decides to go through with the operation.
Before being wheeled in for surgery, Sam wanted to say something to him. "Jason" told her he was glad she was there for him. She touched his hand he had a flashback of the night he got shot putting his wedding ring on his finger, about how there was only one ring and also the night he broke into the penthouse. But before he could say anything else, he had to go in to the operating room. Just before the anesthesia kicked in, he remembered Helena telling him that was Jason Morgan. Before he was able to tell Elizabeth, he passed out from the anesthetic. After the successful surgery, "Jason" wakes up and Elizabeth asks if he remembers what he was going to tell her before he passed out and says no. Just before Elizabeth was going to tell how she has feelings for him, the Police Commissioner Kyle Sloane comes in and Elizabeth went to go find Dr. Obrecht.
Sloane tells "Jason" that all the charges have been dropped, but that has go to undercover in the Jerome organization and "Jason" then refuses. Sloane tells him its either go undercover or go to prison. "Jason" says he has to think about it. Then Carly comes to see him and says she saw what was going on. Finally he tells her that Sloane wants him to go undercover in the Jerome organization. Carly says no and that she's going find him the best lawyer. But he says he's going to go undercover and Carly accepts that this is what he has to do. When being released from the hospital, Spinelli sees "Jake" and mistakes him for Jason from behind and runs up to him and hugs him but realized he isn't him.
Later on, "Jason" wanted to speak to Sam about asking Julian for a job, something on the legit side. Sam agrees to ask her father. After leaving the hospital "Jason" would stay at Carly's house just until he get's his own money. Sam called "Jason" to tell him that Julian would give him a job. Then Carly left and the doorbell rang and it was Sonny. They had a heated conversation, Sonny was even more mad when Jason told him he was going to go work for Julian. Carly comes in to tries to stop them and then "Jason" leaves to go see Julian. Carlos tells Julian he doesn't trust "Jason" because of what "Jason" did to him. Julian tells Carlos he was right that "Jason" might be working for Sonny. "Jason" tells them he wouldn't even lift a finger for Sonny and then "Jason" gets the job. "Jason" goes to the Metro Court to see Carly to tell her he was sorry for what happened between him and Sonny and Carly tells him not to worry about it. "Jason" says maybe they shouldn't be friends but Carly says no, they are still going to be friends. She also tells him that Ric and Elizabeth just broke up and that he should go see Elizabeth. "Jason" goes to see Elizabeth and tells her how he feels about her and Elizabeth does the same and then they kiss.
As they are about to go upstairs, the doorbell rings and Elizabeth answers it to a women named Hayden, who claims to be "Jason's" wife. Both Elizabeth and Jason are shocked to hear this. Hayden says Jake's real named is Jacob Barnes and that they went camping but had a huge fight and he walk out on her. Elizabeth asks Hayden for proof. Hayden says is was back in her hotel room at the Metro Court. After leaving, she makes a phone call telling the person that they fell for it and she tells the person she will meet them back at the hotel. At the hotel the person revealed was Ric, who hired Hayden to pretend to be "Jason's" wife so that he and Elizabeth could get back together. When Carly finds out she doesn't believe the story and tells Hayden she will find out the truth. After Elizabeth sees medical records that Hayden provides, she sees the same spot that Patrick recently performed surgery on is the same spot that "Jason" had his previous head injury. Elizabeth starts to believe the story and leaves. Outside Elizabeth tells "Jason" goodbye and they kiss.
In April, "Jason" drops Sam's car off at Patrick's house and while he's there he recognizes Robin's picture, from the hallucination he had on the night he was suppose to kill Sam and Patrick. He tells Patrick about seeing her and Patrick tells him that Robin left months before he showed up. Sam says maybe he's he seen pictures of her at Elizabeth's house because the two of them are friends. As "Jason" leaves he throws Sam the keys to her car but she misses and the end up under the coach. "Jason" goes to grab the keys and he also finds a wedding ring. He gives it to Patrick but Patrick says that's not he's ring. He reads the inscription it says Alan Quartermaine. Sam realized its "Jason's" ring and wonder how the right got there. Emma comes in tells them that Spencer tried to give her the ring. Then Sam wonders how Spencer got the ring so she says she's going to see Nikolas but just then there is a knock at the door and it just so happens to be Nikolas. Nikolas tells them that Helena gave it to him before she left Port Charles. Nikolas also says that the reason why he didn't tell Sam was because that was the same day of Spencer's birthday party that ended up catching on fire. But Nikolas really knows that Jake is "Jason".
In May, at the Nurse Ball, the truth about Ric hiring Hayden to pretend to be "Jason's" wife, comes out thanks to Carly. After the truth comes out, Elizabeth ends things with Ric for good. Then she tells Nikolas that she can finally be with "Jason" but Nikolas tells her that Jake is "Jason". Elizabeth is furious and has every intention of telling the truth but doesn't and decides to keep "Jason" and everyone else in the dark so she can finally be happy with Jason and Nikolas agrees to keep their secret. After the Ball, Jason and Elizabeth go back to her house and talk. They decide to be together and they make love. A couple weeks later, Commissioner Sloane decides to drop all the charges against "Jason".
In June, "Jason" is looking for a job and Michael hires him as security for ELQ and to find out who is giving information to the Cassadine's so they can take over ELQ. They eventually find out that Michael's secretary Rosalie is working for Nikolas. But they find too late as Nikolas has enough votes to take over ELQ. In July, "Jason" and Sam work together to help get ELQ back in Michael's control. Also "Jason" and Elizabeth's son Jake is revealed to be alive. He was kidnapped by Helena and was living on Cassadine Island for 4 years. It was also revealed that Jake's kidney where never giving to Josslyn. "Jason" is also able to convince Elizabeth to let Jake and Danny meet.
In August, "Jason" proposes to Elizabeth and after some hesitation she says yes. "Jason" goes to Carly about his engagement to Elizabeth and he also calls her his best friend. Afterwards, "Jason" leaves and arrives back at Elizabeth's right before Sam and Danny leave and he sees both of "his" sons and their mothers in the same room for the first time. After Sam and Danny leave, "Jason" proposes to Elizabeth again with a ring and she of course says yes. A few days later, Sam calls "Jason" with a break in their case against Nikolas--Kyle Sloane, but the break is short lived when in the end Sloane refuses to help. "Jason" and Sam head the docks and talk about what happened when a gunshot rings out and "Jason" instinctively protects Sam. He tells her to stay down and stay put while he goes to the warehouse.
He arrives outside the door and sees three men with guns standing over Sonny, who was shot, and TJ tied to a chair. One of men said he couldn't have any witnesses (meaning killing TJ) so "Jason comes" in attacks one of the gunman and breaks his neck and grabs the gun and shoots and kills the other two gunman. Sam comes in sees "Jason" with a gun and three men dead and she's kind of in shock but she calls an ambulance for Sonny and unties TJ while "Jason" tries to get Sonny to stay awake. Sonny hallucinates about Jason telling him "I knew you would come you always do." Before passing out, Sonny tells "Jason" to tell Carly that he loves her. So "Jason" goes to Sonny's house to tell her that Sonny been shot and is in the hospital.
In November, after finding out "his" true identity, he decides to stay with Elizabeth but kisses Sam. Days later, he wanted to search for answers so he went to Cassadine Island to see Helena hoping she tell him something. Unbeknownst to him, Sam and Elizabeth, thanks to Spinelli, followed him. Helena played mind games with them, she even cursed Sam because, she said something to Helena which she didn't take well, but before she could tell "Jason" the secret she fell unconscious and Elizabeth tries to revive her but it was too late, Helena died. "Jason" accuses Nikolas of killing Helena and he attacks him again but, Elizabeth got him to calm down and they left. "Jason", Elizabeth and Jake spend Thanksgiving with the Quartermaine's.
"Jason" is called away from spending NYE with Sam at the Floating Rib because Jake claims to have seen a man outside of his window on New Year's Eve. After dealing with the alleged stalker situation, Jason goes to the penthouse to find Sam and explain to her why he had to cut their time short on NYE. He also confides in Sam about another memory he had of her and the star necklace. Sam explains the memory to him and they grow closer. Later on, "Jason" asks her out and they go to lunch together at Kelly's.
With "Jason" still facing legal troubles from his fight with Nikolas, Sam sets out to prove that he's innocent. She managed to track down a couple who were staying at The Metro Court that night and witnessed the altercation between "Jaso"n and Nikolas. They were initially hesitant but Sam convinced them to agree to testify to the fact that Nikolas was the aggressor in the fight, thus exonerating Jason of the attempted murder charges. The couple later ran into "Jason" and Jake in the restaurant at the hotel and told "Jason" that they would testify to what they saw to clear him and he was a lucky man to have Sam in his life.
Excited about the good news, Sam went to "Jason's" hotel room to share it with him. Elizabeth answered the door and upon seeing Sam, tried to make it seem like her presence there was something that it was not. "Jason" and Jake soon arrive back to the hotel room and "Jason" makes it clear that Elizabeth and Jake are staying there because someone is stalking their home. He also tells Sam that he is now staying in a separate room down the hall if she needs to find him for any reason. "Jason" goes on to thank Sam for helping to clear him and then asks for her help in investigating the alleged stalker.
Jake starts to pick up on his mother's hatred of Sam and blames her for "his" parents' break up. He also starts to act out more and it becomes clear that he lied about the stalker and is the one behind the strange incidents at the Webber home. Elizabeth is angry and opposed to Sam helping with the investigation. Sam thinks Elizabeth doesn't want her help because she already knows who's behind the break-ins and is using the situation to manipulate "Jason". Before it can get too far, "Jason" stops the confrontation and insists that Sam help because the sooner they figure out what's really going on the better it will be for everyone.
On Jason's "birthday" aka the day he woke up from his accident as Jason Morgan, Carly insists on throwing "Jason" a birthday party. She calls Sam and orders a cake. Sam is hesitant about the party because she doesn't want to put any pressure on "Jason" about his past, however Carly insists anyways. When "Jason" arrives at the Metro Court he isn't in a partying mood. Carly is upset but gets it and backs off. Sensing that something is bothering him, Sam heads out to the terrace to check on "Jason" and bring him some cake. While out on the terrace, Sam and "Jason" are caught in the rain and the rain triggers another memory for "Jason".
"Jason" remembered dancing with and kissing Sam in the rain on the penthouse rooftop. This memory was different from all of the others because he remembered the feelings he had for her, which made the memory all the more real. "Jason" and Sam make their way back inside and he shares the memory with her. He also tells Sam that he remembers what he felt for her in that moment. He asks for more details, so Sam takes him to the penthouse rooftop and tells him about that night. "Jason" is motivated after their talk to pursue his memories further and tells Sam that he wants to recover his memories with her help. Sam encourages him to do what he wants, but sadly lets him know that she can't be the one to help him with this. Some of his memories are also her memories of their life, which make them extremely personal to her and she doesn't want to impact his progress with her expectations or hopes to which "Jason" is very understanding.
Sam continues to investigate the stalker and soon discovers that Jake is behind the incidents. She goes to the Webber home to talk about what's been going on with Elizabeth and finds Jake alone with the babysitter and a cut hand. He had just thrown a rock out the window and cut his hand on the glass. Sam goes to call his parents and assures him that everything will be okay, but he gets scared and runs into the basement. Sam follows him trying to calm him down, but loses her footing and falls down the stairs. Upon seeing Sam at the bottom of the stairs unconscious, Jake gets scared and runs away. While running away, he gets hit by a car and is taken to GH.
With Jake in the hospital, no one knows that Sam is missing and she stays trapped in the basement, unable to move and suffering from a concussion and mild hypothermia. "Jason" starts to realize that something is wrong after he gets a call from Alice Gunderson because Sam failed to pick up Danny from a birthday party. "Jason" learns from Kristina and Molly that the last time they heard from Sam, she was heading to Elizabeth's, so he goes there to search for her. Sam hallucinates "Jason" several times as she is falling in and out of consciousness. She plugs in an old heater to keep warm, but falls unconscious again just as the heater begins to emit sparks and smoke. "Jason" arrives at Elizabeth's house to find the smoke detectors going off. He searches the entire house and finally finds Sam in the basement. He picks her up and makes it out of the house just moments before the heater causes a major explosion and fire in the home. The force of the explosion knocks Sam and "Jason" several feet into the air just as they make their way out of the house. After a moment of unconsciousness for both, they wake up and "Jason" rushes her to the hospital.
At the hospital, "Jason" stays by Sam's bedside. When Elizabeth hears what happened, she fears that Jake pushed Sam down the stairs on purpose. But Sam assures her that it was an accident and Jake didn't hurt her. After she was treated, Sam also went to visit Jake herself to assure him that she was okay and he did nothing wrong. "Jason" continued to divide his time in the hospital between Sam and Jake. While at Sam's bedside he admitted to her that he doesn't want to miss the opportunity to get to know her more and he's going to be better for her. After spending another day in the hospital Sam starts to get restless and misses Danny. She begs "Jason" to help her get out of there and he is initially hesitant, but eventually agrees.
"Jason" helps her sneak out but they are caught by Lucas, who eventually lets them go. They head to the Quartermaines to pick up Danny from Monica and then "Jason" takes them home to the penthouse. Sam, "Jason", and Danny spend time together as a family and after "Jason" puts Danny to bed, "Jason" and Sam have some time to talk. "Jason" tells Sam that coming so close to losing her made him realize that he doesn't want to lose her and he now feels just how much they're connected. Sam thinks he is only there to help her as a friend, but "Jason" assures her that it's more than that between them and pulls her into a kiss. "Jason" and Sam start making out on the couch, but the complication of their situation stops them from taking it any further. Instead, they have an honest conversation about their relationship and the people they are now. "Jason" then cooks her dinner and they enjoy spending more time together before he is called away with news on Jake's condition. "Jason" returns to see Sam the next day and tells her that he and Elizabeth have to take Jake to Shriner's Hospital for Children in Philadelphia for treatment. He kisses her goodbye and promises to take her out when he gets back.
"Jason" finds out what happened at Julian and Alexis Jerome's wedding from Nikolas, who was Philly visiting Elizabeth and brought Cameron and Aiden to see Jake. He immediately calls Sam to see if she is alright. He then asks her to bring Danny to Philadelphia, because he wanted to see them both and it would be good for Jake to see his little brother. Sam and Danny arrive and "Jason" is thrilled to see them. "Jason" takes Danny back to visit Jake, while Sam runs into Nikolas and talks to him about a case they are working on. After the visit, "Jason" and Sam discover that they are staying at the same hotel and Sam invites him to stop over to tuck Danny in. "Jason" stops by that night and Sam tells him more about her past and their past. When Danny is ready with his book, Sam reads him a bedtime story as he sits with his father and later falls asleep in his father's arms. Sam and "Jason" tuck him into bed together and later they fall asleep together on the couch.
Sam and "Jason" wake up in each other's arms. They kiss, flirt and tease about dreaming of the other. Their make-out session stops when they realize Danny is awake and they get up to tend to him. As "Jason" is leaving to return to his room, freshen up and head back to the hospital, they run into Elizabeth who sees him leaving Sam's room smiling. He explains that he came over to tuck Danny in for bed and stayed the night with them. Elizabeth tells him that Jake is being discharged and then leaves visibly unhappy. When "Jason" returns a little while later to invite Sam and Danny to walk over to the hospital with him, Sam declines stating that she doesn't want her presence to make Liz uncomfortable. However, "Jason" insists they come with him, because Elizabeth would just have to get used to the reality of their situation now. So, Sam and Danny accompany "Jason" to the hospital to bring Jake home.
After returning to Port Charles, "Jason" catches up with Sonny, Carly and Michael and later with Monica in the Quartermaine crypt. He also finds and purchases a new apartment. "Jason" calls Sam to meet him at the Metro Court Hotel, because he wants to share his news and give her a tour of his new place, but she's unable to go to see his place because she has to attend the reading of Helena Cassadine's will. When "Jason" leaves the Metro Court, he forgets his memorial plaque that he ripped off the wall of the Quartermaine crypt. After the will reading, Sam returns it to him and sees his new place. "Jason" and Sam kiss and end up talking about their relationship. A delivery interrupts them and Sam is shocked that "Jason" picked out the same two photos for his new place that previously sat on the mantle of his old penthouse for years. They talk more about his memories and "Jason" expresses frustration that he can remember the small things like a photo, but not the larger more important things. Both agree they want to move forward in their relationship and Sam suggests getting a divorce. At first "Jason" is resistant, but Sam explains that she thinks a divorce would be best so they could start fresh without the pressure of the past and he finally agrees. They meet Alexis at Kelly's a few days later and sign the paperwork, finalizing the divorce.
Later that night, "Jason", Sam and Danny have a family dinner at Kelly's, where they decide to go out on a date. Then they head to General Hospital to drop off Danny with his grandma Monica. While there they go to check on Tracy, who is having health problems. When Sam steps out of the room to take a phone call regarding her Hayden investigation, Tracy starts to hallucinate and believes that "Jason" is her father, Edward. After that encounter, Jason begins to see who the Quartermaines truly are -- his family, and he vows to get the family company back for them. Jason begins to help Sam investigate Hayden's shooting and they visit Shawn Butler in Pentonville to try and get some answers. After visiting with Shawn, they put the pieces together and discover that Nikolas had Hayden shot to keep her quiet about "Jason's" true identity.
Furious, Sam heads to Wyndemere to confront Nikolas and turn him in for attempted murder. Nikolas starts to man handle Sam in an attempt to stop her and "Jason" gets enraged. He attacks Nikolas and Curtis Ashford, who tries to break up the fight. Jason almost kills Nikolas, but Sam manages to talk him down and convince him to let Nikolas go for her. They head back to his place where Jason gets angry again upon seeing the bruises that Nikolas left on Sam. Sam tells Jason that she only cares about him and Danny and to not let Nikolas take any more time away from them. Jason kisses her and the two share a night of passion. In the morning, "Jason" and Sam cuddle and talk about their relationship deciding to start fresh instead of starting over. Their morning bliss is interrupted by Carly who shows up on his doorstep pleading with "Jason" to talk Sonny out of killing Carlos Rivera. "Jason" tries but is unable to get through to Sonny. He returns back to Sam, who is still at his place and they spend the night together again.
Sam and "Jason" later confront Nikolas again and manage to blackmail him into selling them back all the ELQ shares he stole. Once ELQ is back in Quartermaine hands, Jason returns control of the company back to Michael. A few nights later, "Jason" and Sam spend the night together at the penthouse with Danny and Sam opens up, telling "Jason" what it was like when he was gone. Jake starts attending art therapy with Franco, which causes major issues with "Jason" because he doesn't want Franco around his son. After a heated confrontation at the hospital between "Jason" and Franco, Jason takes Sam out of town for a few nights to get away from the drama. A rainstorm forces them to take refuge in a barn for the night and as they start to make love, it's clear someone is watching them. After returning to town, the stalker continues to follow them. Sam and "Jason" catch onto him when they are in the park and realize someone is following them. It turns out to be Franco who was stalking them, although he claims otherwise. "Jason" threatens Franco and tells him to stay away from them and Jake.
In early May, "Jason" gets into a motorcycle accident with a prison van carrying Officers Dante Falconeri and Nathan West and prisoner Carlos Rivera to Pentonville. "Jason" ditches his bike to avoid the van and ends up unconscious. When he awakes, his head is pounding and he finds Dante, who is unconscious and pinned under the van. As he works to free Dante, he is visited by visions of Robin, Carly, Sam, Sonny and Helena who claims he is still under her control. "Jason" fights Helena's control and finally manages to break free of her hold and free Dante from the van right before it explodes. After this event, all of "Jason's" memories as Jason Morgan begin to get restored. He tells Sam that night and they go home together and celebrate. The next day at Sam's insistence, she and "Jason" go to the hospital, so he can get checked out. They later share the news with Monica, Sonny, Carly and Michael that his memories are returning.
Later in the month, "Jason" and Sam attend the 2016 Nurses' Ball together. At the conclusion of the ball, Diane tells "Jason" that Nikolas is suing him and as a result of the lawsuit ELQ's assets were frozen. "Jason" heads off to Spoon Island to talk to Nikolas about the lawsuit. Sam follows a little later and when she arrives, she hears crashing. She catches up with "Jason" in Nikolas' bedroom and finds the room trashed, window smashed and a body on the rocks. Knowing immediately that "Jason" wasn't involved, Sam tries to help him figure out what happened. By the time they get down to the bank, the body they saw, who they assume was Nikolas, is gone. Knowing that the PCPD would try to pin the crime on him once they got the slightest shred of evidence, "Jason" decides to figure out what truly happened to Nikolas. Sam goes with him to help him clear his name. Together, they figure out that Nikolas faked and staged his death. They track him and his unlikely companion, Ava Jerome to London and then Cassadine Island on Greece where they finally catch up with them.
Just as they are about to force Nikolas back to the States to clear "Jason's" name, Laura Spencer, Kevin Collins, Dante Falconeri and Lulu Spencer-Falconeri arrive on the island, also in search of Nikolas. Sam and Nikolas' uncle Valentin Cassadine who has been hiding among the group using the alias Theo, makes his move and takes the group hostage in order to force Nikolas to sign over the Cassadine family heritage. He immediately separates "Jason" and Sam from the others, locking them in a room and using Sam to control "Jason". Sam who has been complaining of fatigue and sleeping a lot, faints setting "Jason" off. "Jason" breaks out of his restraints to get to her and takes down the guard who was watching them. Once she awakes and reassures him that she is okay, they head down and free the others of Valentin's guards. All except Nikolas, who is once again presumed dead after a confrontation with Valentin.
The group plans to escape the island and find an old jet. "Jason" and Dante manage to pilot the jet, but Valentin tampered with the fuel tank and they are forced to make an emergency landing on a nearby island. "Jason" stays behind to try and shut off the engine and prevent an explosion while the others escape. The plane explodes anyways, but Sam is insistent that "Jason" survived and is determined to go after him. Dante tries to reason with her, but she is steadfast in her determination to find him, before she faints again. Soon after she comes to, "Jason" finds the group and reunites with Sam. They build a fire to signal the cost guard and are finally rescued from the island.
After returning to town, the charges against "Jason" are officially dropped and Sam and "Jason" reunite with their son. However, Valentin was still on the loose. He goes after Spencer Cassadine, but Sonny and "Jason" manage to stop him and he is taken into custody. Meanwhile, Sam confronts her father over his attack on her mother's life. Sam cuts him out of her life and after their heated confrontation, she faints again on her way out. She is taken to General Hospital and examined by Dr. Hamilton Finn. Sam assumes she contracted some sort of illness from the island and is shocked when Dr. Finn returns and tells her that she is pregnant. After the news sinks in, Sam is thrilled to realize that she and "Jason" are expecting another baby.
"Jason" comes to the hospital concerned after he learns that she was admitted. She is about to tell him about the baby when he starts to feel ill. Dr. Finn examines "Jason" and believes he has contracted malaria. The doctor tells Sam that since she was with "Jason" in Greece, she would need to be tested as well. If she contracted malaria, it could cause complications for her pregnancy. Sam and "Jason" are both tested and the results of both their tests show no signs of malaria, however Dr. Finn runs a second test to be sure. Meanwhile, "Jason" can tell that something is wrong with Sam and he tries to get her to open up. Sam wants to tell him about the baby, but wants to make sure that everything is okay with both her and the baby before doing so.
The following day, "Jason" is released from the hospital and he and Sam go home. "Jason" notices that something is off and that Sam is worried about something. He starts questioning her a little bit, and says he can tell there's something that she isn't telling him. He also tells her that they both know they are stronger together than they are apart. He eventually agrees to back off and asks her to admit that something is wrong. Eventually Sam relents and tells "Jason" that she's pregnant and "Jason" is ecstatic. He proposes to Sam "again" and she accepts. Later, they get a call from Dr. Finn telling them that both tests conclude Sam and the baby are malaria free.
Sam and "Jason" then turn their attention toward planning their wedding. "Jason" asks Sonny to be his best man and Sam asks Alexis to be her matron of honor. Sonny and Alexis both happily accept. Carly offers to plan and host the wedding at the Metro Court Hotel, but neither Sam nor "Jason" want anything extravagant. So, Carly offers to host the wedding at Greystone Manor instead, to which "Jason" and Sam both agree. Molly and Kristina also help Carly plan the wedding. "Jason" and Sam spend their pre-wedding night together at the Metro Court and make love. On the day of their wedding, "Jason" surprises Sam with Spinelli, who has flown in from Portland to officiate. "Jason" and Sam are "remarried" on September 6, surrounded by their closest friends and family. In attendance was; Danny, Jake, Sonny, Carly, Michael, Alexis, Kristina, Molly and Spinelli. Monica was unable to make it due to a crisis at the hospital.
Soon after remarrying, Sam and "Jason" are thrust into pressing situations concerning their parents. Sam was there to support her mother during her father's trial and "Jason" supported and stood vigil by his mother after she was attacked by the General Hospital killer. While Monica is unconscious, "Jason" shares the news that he and Sam are expecting Baby Morgan, which inspires Monica to fight and she soon wakes up. Sam and "Jason" also work hard to stop the impending mob war between Sonny and Julian, but neither man is too keen on listening to their reasoning. The brewing war comes to a head when Morgan Corinthos is presumed dead after a car bomb went off in Julian's car, which Morgan had stolen. "Jason" and Sam support the Corinthos family through the loss of Morgan.
Sonny initially believes that he is responsible for the car bomb, but "Jason" isn't convinced. Sonny had put a hit on Julian that night, but he called it off which meant someone else was responsible for the bomb. "Jason" and Sam begin looking into what really happened that night. During their investigation, Jason shares with Sam his desire to move his family to another city. He no longer wanted his family around all of the violence in the city, so they made plans to revisit the topic of moving to another city once they wrap up their investigation. "Jason" and Sam team up with Curtis Ashford, who was also investigating the bomb. "Jason", Sam and Curtis discover that Sonny was not responsible for the bomb, but someone who wants to eliminate both Sonny and Julian is.
On February 28, "Jason" helps Sam deliver their daughter, Scout Cain (then known as Scout Morgan), after Sam was pushed off a bridge by Olivia Jerome and went into labor. Soon he was able to get them to the hospital saving them from a cold death under the bridge. Sam ended up in a coma but she soon woke up. Later, in March, "Jason" and Curtis saved Robin, in the elevator in GH, from nearly getting killed by a bomb strapped to her by Olivia Jerome, when she was trying to get revenge on her nemesis Anna Devane.
In July, Sam shot Sonny and left him to die in a dumpster in order to keep "Jason" away from the dangers of the mob. She was diagnosed with toxoplasmosis after collapsing at their house and it was later revealed that she got the disease as a result of Olivia pushing her off the bridge. Luckily, Scout didn't have the disease. Sonny wanted "Jason" to hide the fact Sam tried to kill him and as a result, "Jason" bribed a cop into giving him the gun Sam used and threw it off a bridge. Later, Sam eventually told Carly the truth and Carly was pissed at Sonny and especially "Jason", who she had trusted for so long.
On August 29, "Jason" and Sonny went to a mob meeting, where Sonny announced his retirement and talked about the future of the business, but after "Jason" left to see Sam, he returned to the meeting, where one mobster was holding Max hostage. Sonny soon tackled the mobster, but was pushed aside and the mobster fired a shot at Sam, who followed "Jason". Jason is able to get Sam out of the way, however, he gets shot instead and is critically wounded. After Sonny kills the mobster, "Jason" is rushed to the hospital, where he falls into a coma and wakes up nearly a month later.
In October, after fully recovering, "Jason" and Sam take control of Julian's media company and at a party at the Metro Court, they renamed it Aurora Media. However, the party was stormed by two gunmen who took everyone hostage. One of the gunmen accidentally shot Elizabeth while aiming for Dante. Sam managed to distract the other one, allowing "Jason" to tackle him. However, the one who shot Liz takes Carly hostage, but Sonny comes to the rescue and Dante arrests both gunmen. "Jason" then rushes Liz to the hospital, but unbeknownst to him, Sam is abducted by a third gunman and someone known as Patient 6 flies in through the skyline to pursue them. Monica soon arrives at the hospital, informing "Jason" of Sam's abduction and the two other men.
"Jason" rushes back to the hotel, where Dante shows him footage of the man who came in through the skyline arriving at the hotel with Sonny. "Jason" then goes to Sonny's house and asks him who that man was, to which he says that he's one of his men. As "Jason" demands Sam's location, Patient 6 suddenly comes in with a wet, unconscious Sam in his arms and that man looks exactly like how "Jason" did before. On December 1, it was revealed that the man everyone thought was Jason, was actually his twin brother, Drew. Jason's memories were implanted into Drew. Drew's marriage to Sam wasn't valid due to the real Jason Morgan coming back and him still being married to Sam. Sam and Drew became engaged again in December 2017 and got married on January 22, 2018.
In February 2018, he and Curtis begin an investigation towards Jim Harvey, who claims to be Drew's adopted mother Betsy's ex-boyfriend. He hires Curtis to find and locate Betsy to learn more of why he was sent away. On March 1, Drew helped calming Franco down after he started to suffer a nervous breakdown from remembering their past. Later he decided to work with him to find out what happened to them when they were kids and when Franco began suffering a breakdown while confronting Jim, Drew busted in to protect him not long before Harvey's men came in.
On March 14, he and Franco were held captive in a holding cell. Cement began to pour into their location and on March 21, Drew and Franco escaped through the sewers and reached the pier. In the PCPD they reunited with both Elizabeth and Sam. On March 23, after Sam confessed to Drew on how she loves both him and Jason and that she kissed Jason on New Years Eve, he removed his wedding ring and left her. Soon afterwards, Drew and Jason fought each other at the pier and spent a brief time in jail. He later went to stay at Curtis' place during the fall out of his marriage.
On April 6, Drew was completely horrified when he finally learned that Franco was molested by Harvey and that he protected him from suffering the same fate. Drew found and saved Franco from Harvey by shooting him dead. When the police arrived, Drew covered for Franco on his kidnapping of Harvey. In June, Drew became the best man in Curtis's wedding to Jordan, as well as the best man in Franco's wedding to Elizabeth in November, after which he and Franco finally rekindled their long lost friendship for the first time since they were toddlers. On July 5, Drew and Sam’s marriage was dissolved.
Despite his son's constant insistance in wanting him to get together with his mom, Drew made it clear to him that he and his mother aren't gonna be together. In July, Drew met PC’s current DA Margaux Dawson and as of July 24, she is in possession of the missing drive containing all of his memories. The two of them continue to bond very well, without him knowing she has the key to his past.
On August 8, after Peter was captured he was let go as Drew did not want to waste anymore time dealing with him and declares he has come to accept that he won't be able to remember his past.
On August 17, at Charlie's, after Drew refused to help Margaux in her plot to take down Sonny, she kissed him before she walked out. Drew followed her and questioned her about the kiss. After back and forth arguments, Drew and Margaux confessed that they are attracted to each other and they agreed on a date. Drew decided to date her to see if she has an angle.
On August 22, they went out on a date at the Floating Rib where they ran into Carly and Jason, Jason warned Drew that Margaux might be using her to get to him and Sonny, Drew assured him that he is fully aware and that he can handle Margaux. Later when Drew took Margaux back to her room, she excused herself to change her blouse, and when she returned she saw Drew holding a flash drive. She panicked and claimed it contains evidence for a case, but he guesses that she's lying. She shows him the photos on the flash drive of her as a kid in her computer. He apologises. She wonders if he got himself invited in just to search her suite. After arguing, when Drew's about to leave but Margaux stops him and they kiss. Later he leaves.
On September 5, Drew learns from Kim that their son Oscar has an inoperable brain tumor and may only have months to live. She has been searching for treatments for two years but there’s nothing. Drew promises Kim that they will give their son the best life they can for however long it might be. Though he still believes they should tell their son the truth of his illness. After Oscar learned the truth about his illness, on September 26, Drew and Kim promised him they will do their best to help him.
On October 11, Drew learned that Margaux has the missing drive and she offers to give it to him in exchange for his help in taking down Sonny. He refuses her offer though she is confident he will change his mind in the future.
On October 24, after learning Oscar is filing an emancipation against him and his mother, he hires Diane to fight him. In addition, he informs Curtis he won't be able to be his best man as he needs to put all his focus towards his family.
On January 2, 2019, Drew met Hank Archer, a man claiming to have known Drew during his time in Afghanistan, where he once saved him from an IED. Drew informed him of his amnesia, but still Hank thanks him and offers to help him in any way he can. Soon afterwards, Drew and Kim learned that the experiments failed, that the tumor didn't shrink and that their son will die in a matter of seven to eight months, but also go as early as six weeks.
On February 11, it was revealed that Drew might be a huge threat to Shiloh (Hank) if he remembered his past. After learning Franco was arrested for the murders of Mary Pat Ingles , Kiki Jerome and Peyton Mills, along with the attempted murder of Lulu Falconeri after Ryan Chamberlain hides all their licenses in his art therapy room. He went to Jordan to assure her that Franco is not capable of taking another person's life anymore. Only Drew and a few other people believe he is innocent, namely Elizabeth, Scott, and Ava. On Valentine's Day, Drew married Franco and Elizabeth at the PCPD, and confessed to Franco he sees him as a brother. On February 20, after Franco pleads guilty for the murders, Drew and Elizabeth still believe he's innocent and there's something more going on than meets the eye. On February 22, while attempting to driving away in the hospital's parking lot, he became blind and accidentally hit Jordan with his car. He was cured soon after at the hospital and feels guilty for hitting Jordan, who is in critical condition, but everyone understood it was an accident.
In March, Drew convinced Elizabeth to get back together with Franco after he was cleared from all the charges, believing she can trust him as he can for reasons he is unaware of. On March 19, Drew and Kim tragically learned their son has less than a month, however on April 4, Oscar has a severe seizure that caused him to fall on the bridge and rushed to General Hospital where parents and Josslyn get news he's in a coma and Terry said if he wakes up he won't the same again.
On April 29 (shown on May 1), Drew's son Oscar died in his sleep. On May 13, they had a memorial service for Oscar and it was revealed that Drew and Kim had him cremated. They knew Oscar didn't want a funeral and that he wanted them to celebrate his life instead. On May 16, Drew and Kim went through Oscar's stuff and he decided to go to Kilimanjaro to spread Oscar's ashes and Kim decided to go with him. On June 12, Drew and Kim got done climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and were in the cabin and Kim passed out before she eventually mistook Drew for Oscar. Drew played along and he (as Oscar) assured Kim that he's always with her.
On June 17, they returned home from Kilimanjaro and after making sure Kim was okay he left her apartment as Julian showed up and visited her. Drew eventually visited Curtis and Jordan and he offered Curtis a job as head of security at Aurora. He eventually talked to Margaux who said she was leaving town and apologized for using his memories as leverage and he forgave her. She also asked him about his connection with Shiloh and he told her about what he knew despite not remembering his time in Afghanistan with Hank and she told him that she betrayed him without using his name when she mentioned the flash drive. Drew thanked her for the head's up about Shiloh being interested in his memories.
Drew eventually had a chat with Franco who invited him to his wedding reception and Drew asked if Franco could try to be the brother he used to be to him when they were kids and Franco agreed. On June 25, Drew visited Kim who cooked his favorite meal, gave him some of his favorite wine, and they played the CD he gave her in San Diego and she eventually kissed him and asked him to have a baby with her. Drew was surprised and while he understood where Kim was coming from he didn't want their hypothetical child to be made out of grief and just see him or her as a replacement of Oscar so he turned her down which made him sad because he hated to see Kim in pain.
Drew went to talk to Julian about Kim and he learned that she asked him to have a baby with her. While Julian was a bit hurt, he knew where Kim was coming from and he understood.
On July 8, Kim cuts the power to the Haunted Star at Franco and Elizabeth's wedding reception, gets Drew alone, and injects him with a sedative. She then takes him to a nearby bedroom and begins to undress him while undressing herself as well. Before she can have sex with Drew, Kim is stopped by Julian and he helps comfort her about Oscar never being able to be recreated. Meanwhile, after waking up, Drew decides not to press any charges against Kim.
At Oscar's will reading, Shiloh showed up because Oscar originally was going to leave his ELQ shares to him and when he went to claim them, Drew shoved Shiloh to the ground and was disgusted that he was insulting Oscar's memory. It was eventually revealed that Oscar decided to leave them to the Kilimanjaro foundation instead.
On July 22, it was revealed that during Drew's (Steve Burton) time with Hank in Afghanistan that Hank worked with a Navy SEAL named Charles "Tex" Owen to sell stolen fuel to insurgents on the black market for a million dollars. Before they set out on their mission, Tex told Drew everything and hated himself for what he did, so after Drew's team was ambushed, Drew confronted Hank in the aid station and vowed to turn him in for his act of treason. Hank tried to bribe Drew by proposing to run a sting to root out the insurgents, split the money and never see each other again. Drew was not swayed and vowed that Hank will soon understand the true meaning of justice.
On July 29, Drew recieved a package containing his Navy medals from his time in the military and he even got one for pulling a contractor (David Henry "Hank" Archer) out of the jeep that hit the IED. He later showed Kim his medals and when she looked at the one he got for saving Hank from that jeep with the IED, she told him that he not only saved Hank, he also went back for another Navy SEAL named Charles "Tex" Owen. After thinking that Tex could provide him with more information, Drew later went up to the Metro Court restaurant to confront Shiloh about him but unfortunately Shiloh told him that Tex was dead. Shiloh claimed that Drew was inconsolable after Tex had died and that that was the reason why everyone thought Drew went AWOL. After Drew told him he was learning more about what really happened in Afghanistan, he later went back to his office to find that he had been robbed. Drew, Curtis, Jason and Sam all deduced that maybe there was something Shiloh was after that only Drew knew, something that Shiloh needed access to.
On August 2, Drew and Curtis talked to Detective Harrison Chase about Shiloh stealing the flash drive and after Chase promised to get a search warrant to search Shiloh's motel room, Drew later told Curtis that he talked to an NCIS agent to get information on what really happened in Afghanistan. Drew checked his email and was stunned to learn that he did plan to meet with NCIS in 2012 to report the fact that a Navy SEAL on his team was working with a private contractor to sell stolen fuel on the black market. They quickly realized that said contractor was one David Henry Archer AKA Shiloh.
Later that day, Dr. Hamilton Finn talked to Drew at the hospital about Dr. Arthur Cabot and asked him if Cabot reached out to him. Drew said he didn't and he didn't even know him and Finn mentioned that he had a hunch about Cabot trying to make a new batch of the serum he used for his original twin study. Drew thanked him for the heads up before he learned from Kim that she decided to leave Port Charles. Curtis eventually met with Drew at the hospital and they talked about Shiloh and deduced that he was going to implant his (Drew's) memories into Jason. Drew called Sonny and warned him that there's a target on Jason's back and then he and Curtis broke into Shiloh's motel room with guns. They found a golden hand that Jason beat Shiloh with and they didn't know who's blood it was. Sonny called Drew back and let him know that Jason is with Sam and that he was right about it being Shiloh.
Later that evening, Drew revealed to Curtis that the PCPD was hunting down Shiloh and that Commissioner Mac Scorpio alerted authorities all across the state about the manhunt, making Shiloh a state-wide fugitive. He and Curtis talked about what he could have possibly known that Shiloh was after and they eventually went to the Metro Court to talk to Lucy Coe about Cabot and when they showed her a picture of him she recognized him but knew him as "Stellan Bergman" instead of Arthur Cabot. Lucy told them that the address of the place he was renting was 721 Dewitt.
Drew and Curtis got to the warehouse with the address 721 Dewitt and busted down the door. Drew attacked Shiloh and then freed Cameron Webber as Curtis picked Shiloh up and held him in a chokehold. Drew pulled out his gun, pointed it at Cabot and threatened to kill him if he didn't shut off the computer that was implanting Drew's memories into Franco but Cabot explained that the procedure cannot be stopped or reversed but there was a chance it may not work. When the procedure was done, Drew and Curtis tied Shiloh's and Cabot's hands behind their backs before Elizabeth and Detective Harrison Chase got there. Chase arrested Shiloh first and took him into custody as Drew was trying to figure out how to take the equipment off of Franco. Cabot asked Drew to untie him so he could take it off correctly. Cabot was subsequently arrested as Franco was taken to the hospital.
At the hospital, Drew waited with Elizabeth as Cameron gave his statement to the cops. Drew visited an unconscious Franco and told him that his memories that were on that flash drive meant less than the friendship that they share. Drew eventually talked to Cameron who said that Shiloh and Cabot talked about something important that Drew used to know, so Drew went to talk to Shiloh about it who was acting like his smug, arrogant self. Cameron saw Shiloh and he was so infuriated that he went to attack Shiloh and threatened him but Drew restrained him so that Cameron wouldn't get in trouble and he told the cop to get Shiloh out of there. Drew promised Cameron that Shiloh would pay but they have to do it the right way. Drew consoled Cameron by saying the world needs a lot less "Shilohs" and more "Cameron Webbers."
On August 12, Franco woke up and Drew and Elizabeth realized that the procedure worked, so now there are two "Chief Andrew Cains"; one with memories up to 2012 and one with no memories prior to 2014. Franco now believes that he is Drew and even kisses Kim, much to Drew and Elizabeth's displeasure. After Franco is arrested for punching Chase at the Floating Rib, Drew visits him in jail and tells him about Oscar while Franco tells him where Shiloh's illegally earned money is - Tex's wife's car which Oscar had given to Cameron in his will. Franco is soon released and has to wear an ankle monitor so he would not leave Port Charles.
On August 19, it was revealed that Drew (Steve Burton) was ambushed by Hank under orders of Helena Cassadine, who said she had "big plans" for him. It was also revealed that there was another man at the place where Helena ambushed Drew and the mysterious man was her accomplice, who was later revealed to be Peter August.
On August 21, Drew finds the money in Cameron's car and shows it to Franco at GH. Franco suggests going to Afghanistan to return the money, but after Drew gives him money to stay, Franco accepts to stay in Port Charles since he has new duties there now while Drew leaves to Afghanistan to return the money. Before Drew would return the money, Drew decided to go find Andre Maddox in hopes of reversing the memory-mapping process that was done to Franco.
On September 5, Andre (who was recovering at GH from being stabbed) revealed that Drew found him and put him on a commercial flight. Drew continued on to Afghanistan and on the way his plane disappeared. On September 9, the WSB confirmed that the wreckage of his plane was found in the Gulf of Aden, but no bodies were found. The crew had fake documents. On September 10, Peter was seen on the phone calling his contact confirming if they had taken care of Drew's plane. It's unknown if Drew was killed or not. On October 9, Robert revealed that the search for Drew found no survivors. He was officially declared dead in absentia by the WSB.
On November 15, Franco (as Drew) told Jason about how water was always "his" friend; it would allow him to escape when he needed to, to hide when he needed to, and to spit him back on land when he needed to. He also explained that in Drew's body he could swim for miles but he can't in Franco's body, which might be a hint that Drew could still be alive.
On March 6, 2020, Peter August framed Dr. Liesl Obrecht for Drew's presumed death and for the murder attempts on Franco Baldwin and Andre Maddox. Because of this, Liesl was arrested by two WSB agents under orders from Anna Devane.
On March 4, 2021, Peter was finally exposed at his wedding with Maxie Jones when Valentin Cassadine revealed that he was responsible for Drew's 2012 abduction, for Drew's presumed death and for the murder attempts on Franco and Andre. Sam grew furious and tried to attack Peter when she learned that he was responsible for Drew's presumed death but she was held back by Dante Falconeri.
On March 5, Franco watched the video he recorded when he was mind mapped into being Drew in 2019. It jarred a memory in Franco’s mind (where he was currently hearing Peter’s voice through Drew’s memories) and he realized that Peter was behind Drew’s kidnapping in 2012.
On March 8, after being kidnapped and threatened by Franco, Peter finally admitted to hiring Hank Archer to ambush Drew and deliver him to Helena back in Afghanistan in 2012 and for causing Drew's presumed death in 2019.
On August 16, Drew was revealed to be alive and he managed to get his hands on a phone to call Sam. Sam and Dante were on a date by the pool at the Metro Court and when Dante went to get Sam another drink, Sam's phone rang. She saw that it was an unknown caller but she answered it. Sam was surprised to hear that it was Drew.
Drew told Sam that he needs her help. Sam was stunned and didn't believe that he was Drew since she believes that Drew died two years ago. Drew swore that he is who he says he is, he said he didn't have much time and he said that they're coming for him before the line went dead. Drew was later seen being put in a cell in a foreign prison by an Australian guard named Russel, who told Drew that this was the last place he'd ever see.
Russel told Drew that when he tells "The Boss" about Drew's latest escape attempt that "The Boss" may finally agree that Drew's more trouble than he's worth. Drew offered to double Russel's salary if Russel gave him a ride to the nearest airport and told him the name of the man who's been holding him prisoner for two years. Russel said that no amount of money was worth double-crossing "The Boss" and that even if it was, he wouldn't live long enough to spend it. After Russel left, Drew told himself that he's made some progress - he called Sam but Sam thinks he's dead, however this isn't the first time she got a call from a "dead" man. Drew prayed that Sam was asking questions and eventually had a couple flashbacks of his daughter, Scout after she was born in 2017. Drew apologized to Scout for being gone so long and he promised to do whatever it takes to go home to her.
Russel came back and told Drew that "The Boss" wasn't happy about Drew's latest escape attempt. He told Drew that he better hope that Sam thinks that Drew's call for help was a crank call or else Sam will be dead before she leaves the United States. When Drew asked if "The Boss" was targeting Sam, Russel said that "The Boss" has a long reach, that he went to a lot of trouble to extract Drew from his life and that he won't hesitate to kill anyone sniffing around. Drew told Russel that he was losing it because of the stolen phone and loose lips and added that Russel should probably take a vacation. Russel said that he was not going anywhere and neither was Drew, so Drew attacked him before Russel kicked him onto the ground and kicked him while he was down. Russel told Drew that one day he was really going to piss him off and that he'd snap Drew's neck before he left. Drew sat up and it was revealed that he stole Russel's pen. Drew took the pen apart and used it to try to pick the lock on his handcuffs.
On August 24, Drew was weak from another beating that he took and he had a hallucination of Sam and Scout. He closed his eyes and when he opened them again, he saw that Sam and Scout were gone but he saw a woman - a nurse named Chloe Jennings. Chloe told Drew not to die on her and she patched him up. Drew wondered why Chloe was working in the foreign prison and not a hospital or a clinic but Chloe said that she's not there by choice. She revealed that she was set to become a live-in nurse for a pregnant woman but after interviewing with the baby's father, she got jumped and was taken hostage. Drew called that the worst interview ever, he was disgusted that the man used an unborn baby as bait and he asked her if she had kids - she didn't, but she asked Drew if he had any and Drew told her that he has a little girl and that he's going home to her. Drew learned from Chloe that there was another prisoner - a woman, who screamed. Drew learned that Chloe didn't have handcuffs so he said that she could help him and the other prisoners escape. Chloe told Drew that they have her on a leash and that the guards didn't trust her, so Drew gave her the pen he stole from Russel and told her to tell the guards that she found it on him in order to gain their trust. Chloe was reluctant but Drew promised her that while he wasn't looking forward to another beating that he can handle it since he's a Navy SEAL. Drew told her that she can do this, so Chloe called the guards in and told them that she found the pen on Drew and that he was planning to escape. One guard thanked her for the heads-up before telling the other guard to get her out of there. Once the other guard and Chloe were out of the cell, the first guard told Drew that that was a stupid move before beating him up. Afterwards, the guard stepped out and revealed that he thinks Drew got the message. As for Drew, he was laying on his bed in pain from his latest beating before he saw Sam and Scout again. He promised Scout that he's coming home to her.
On August 30, Dante received the case file that the WSB had on Drew's disappearance in 2019. When he was going over it at the Metro Court Bar, he found something, so he called Sam and asked her to meet him. When Sam showed up, she, Dante and Anna went over the file and they learned that there was another passenger on the plane Drew was on when it crashed. The passenger's identity wasn't revealed but they learned that the passenger was part of a company called Lethe Unlimited, which was connected to Crichton-Clark, the clinic that Victor Cassadine held Drew hostage in back in 2014.
On September 14, Chloe checked on Drew’s bruised ribs. She told him that she counted ten guards total from different nationalities. Chloe pushed her thumb into his ribs to draw a guard into the room with his yells. He kicked the guard in the face and they ran out of the room. Chloe injected another guard with a syringe in the neck and she showed Drew the keys she has to the car outside in the courtyard. Chloe escaped as Drew tackled two guards who caught him again.
After Drew was thrown back in his cell, Russel came by and asked Drew how he was feeling. Drew told Russel that he could see that Russel isn’t a True Believer unlike "The Boss". Russel was only holding Drew captive for the money. Drew also theorized that "The Boss" is a Cassadine. Drew told Russel that Chloe will either head for the U.S. Consulate or a luxury hotel.
On September 23, Anna received word from the WSB that Chloe was found checked into a hospital in Crete, Greece.
On September 27, it was revealed that "The Boss" holding Drew captive is Victor Cassadine, the man who previously held Drew captive at Crichton-Clark back in 2014. Victor was thought to have been killed in 2014 after Liesl Obrecht shot him in the chest and left him to die when he blew up Crichton-Clark, but he was revealed to be alive when Liesl discovered that he's the one who kidnapped her and ordered his men to throw Scott Baldwin out of the private plane on the way to St. Lucia nearly four weeks ago.
On September 28, in Drew's cell, a guard told him that he’s got company and he threw Liesl in. Liesl was stunned to see that Drew's alive and he wondered who captured her. Liesl was sent to check him over and to give him some antibiotics - but she also revealed that Peter August was the one responsible for his original abduction in July 2012. She filled Drew in on Peter’s relationship with Maxie and how he had to make Drew disappear so he couldn’t expose his past misdeeds. Liesl went on to say that Peter even framed her for all his crimes, including Drew’s "death" and she was tossed in Steinmauer for a while.
Liesl continued to fill him in on Maxie becoming pregnant, Peter’s plan to kidnap the baby backfiring and the fact that the baby has gone missing. She revealed that Peter is working with Victor to locate his daughter, which is all he cares about. Drew asked who Victor is, leading Liesl to reveal that she's talking about Victor Cassadine, who's very much alive. She explained that it was Victor who kidnapped her on the way to try to kill Peter. Drew didn’t understand what was in this for Victor. Liesl assumed that Peter has something that Victor needs and once he gets it, Victor would likely end Peter’s life. Drew revealed his plan to escape, which Liesl's on board with. The guard returned and Liesl claimed that Drew is ill and his kidney may be bruised, so he should be taken to the hospital. The guard said he’d tell the boss as he dragged Liesl out.
On October 5, Drew got a new cellmate in the foreign prison. It was revealed that Victor had ordered his men to drug Valentin Cassadine, kidnap him and put him in Drew's cell. When Valentin woke up, Drew said "Welcome to hell." Valentin wondered where they were and Drew said he didn't know. Valentin remembered having a few drinks in a village called Crete, which led Drew to realize that he's in Greece. Drew realized that Valentin wasn't shocked to see him alive, so Valentin revealed that Sam got his call which put him and Anna on the trail to find him and hopefully find Peter.
Drew confirmed that Peter was involved in his abduction in 2019, but so is Valentin’s relative Victor. Valentin thought that Victor was dead and asked what he wants with Drew. Drew told him that Liesl is also one of Victor's hostages and that she believed Peter is part of a bigger plan of Victor’s. Liesl thought that Peter is working with Victor to find his daughter. Valentin knew that Victor doesn’t work for free and Drew pointed out that Peter is racking up a big debt. Valentin told him about Chloe, who made it to safety and is in a hospital.
Valentin believed that Anna will learn about Drew from her and she’d eventually realize that he’s missing from their hotel. Valentin was sure that Anna will locate them, but Peter would likely also realize that their position was compromised. Drew feared that meant one or both of them would be killed. A guard interrupted them and ordered Valentin out of the cell. Valentin urged Drew to get out alive and to kill Peter if he ever found him.
Later on, Peter came down to Drew's cell and aimed a gun at him. Peter claimed that he didn't want to shoot Drew but he would. After Drew and Peter argued, Peter pulled out a tarot card, showed it to Drew and said "You're active," causing Drew to go into a trance. It was revealed that Drew's conditioning was still intact after all these years and that Peter just activated it. Peter then called Drew "Soldier" and Drew said "Reporting for duty" before Peter told Drew that he has a new mission.
On October 7, a masked gunman showed up at a Tavern in Panapolia, Greece and he ambushed Anna Devane and Robert Scorpio by shooting at them. Anna and Robert defended themselves by shooting back. After engaging in a shootout, the masked gunman was grazed in his left arm by a bullet before he ran off. It was later revealed that the masked gunman was Drew.
On October 15, Drew was seen back in his cell at the Foreign Prison and he was shirtless. When he sat up, he was stunned to see that he'd been shot. Peter dragged Liesl into Drew's cell before ordering her to take care of his wound. After he left, Liesl went to take care of his gunshot wound and asked Drew who shot him. Drew said that he didn't have any idea. After Liesl patched Drew up, Drew revealed that Peter showed up in his cell aiming a gun at him and Liesl figured that Peter must have shot Drew while he was handcuffed in his cell. Drew told her that Peter said that he should be grateful that he's been kept alive but he called Peter put on it by saying that this was the same kind of thing he did to Jason. Drew also said that Peter also had problems with Jason that he wouldn't have with Drew, which led them both to realize that Drew's conditioning was still intact. Drew knew that Helena controlled him back in Port Charles and thought that him having that procedure to remove that microchip removed the conditioning but Liesl revealed that Faison was the one who installed his original conditioning several years ago, so Drew realized that Peter is controlling him through his second level of conditioning.
Drew wondered if there was a way for Liesl to help him and while she couldn't help him due to their current circumstances, she suggested that she could help him help himself fight the conditioning. Liesl wanted Drew to focus on the most important thing in the world to him - which is his daughter Scout - and use that to fight Peter. Drew imagined holding Scout, hearing her laugh and wondered if she would remember him. Liesl was sure that Scout would remember Drew since Sam wasn't the kind of person to let her forget about her father. A guard later came down and ordered Liesl out of Drew's cell so she reminded Drew to think of Scout.
Peter later came down to Drew's cell with a new "mission" for Drew, but Drew looked at Scout's name on the wall and attacked Peter. Drew later put on a long-sleeved black shirt, grabbed a gun, broke into Victor's lavish room on the compound and shot Russel in the leg in defense of Valentin, which gave Victor the opportunity to escape. Drew and Valentin later made it outside and were heading towards Anna and Robert, but Peter showed up and shot Valentin in the back. Drew turned around and fired a machine gun at Peter, who shot Drew in the chest three times and caused Drew to fall off the bridge and into the water. Robert later had a team of WSB agents to try to find Drew.
