Phillipos Costa is a fictional character in the ABC daytime drama General Hospital.
He was played by Eddie Davenport from May 10 to June 16, 2017.
Davenport previously played a guard in 2009.
In May 2017, on Cassadine Island, Drew (as “Jason”) remembers a man named Phillipos Costa shackling him to a wall beating him. Costa had rules for him to follow starting with “his life was not his own”. Helena watched Costa and gave instructions. Costa didn’t want to condition “Jason” too much or he would be useless. Helena just laughed and said that she had reserves. “Jason” wonders who that might be and he then remembers when Helena praised him for eliminating the target. She told him that he was only alive because she bought him from Faison.
“Jason”’s memories are distracted at this point because Franco hits him on the head from behind with a large rock. He finds himself chained to a wall by Franco when he regains consciousness. As Franco pummels “Jason”, he starts to remember more of his past. Jake saw his conditioning by Costa and how Helena trained “Jason” to be her private assassin. “Jason” demands that Franco release him. After Franco does, he explains that he did this to bring back “Jason”’s memories. “Jason” chains Franco to the wall while claiming he will send someone for him. He needs to get back to Port Charles for Jake’s party.
Costa rings Liz’s doorbell and announces he has a gift from Spencer to Jake. Liz allows Jake to open this present early and it is a magic set. Jake is puzzled when Costa tells him “Happy birthday, little man.” There is an Top Secret envelope inside the magic set which is disturbing to Jake. He is told to look deeper inside the box where he finds the Chimera canister.
In June, after the Chimera is destroyed “Jason” tries to figure out the identity of the sender of the magic box by looking at the shipping receipt. Sam wants him to drop it since the Chimera has been destroyed.
Jake has a therapy session with Andre Maddox. Liz tells Andre that Jake is acting like nothing happened. After they are alone, Andre tells Jake about a young boy on Cassadine Island with an old woman who told him to do bad things. He tries to assure Jake that he is safe. Liz arrives to pick up Jake while Costa follows them to camp.
“Jason” gives Spinelli the shipping receipt. After Spinelli does some research, he finds Costa’s car through the license plates.
Meanwhile, Costa is still spying on Liz and Jake. When Jake goes to the vending machine, he runs into Costa and is mesmerized by his face. But Liz calls Jake’s name and Costa runs off.
In a warehouse, “Jason” recognizes the photo Spinelli finds as Helena’s henchman. He is worried that Costa is still in town so Spinelli hacks Costa’s credit cards and discovers that the henchman bought a set of scrubs yesterday.
Jake is seen having a therapy session with Dr. Maddox again. Later on, Elizabeth gets a call from Jason telling her that Costa is in town and that they need to get somewhere safe. They lock themselves in an exam room with Dr. Griffin Munro and Jake is distracted by pretending to be the doctor while Griffin plays the patient.
As Costa hangs around, “Jason” sees the PCPD patrolling for Costa who overhears them. He escapes in an elevator but “Jason” sees him. He chases Costa up to a roof and wants answers. Costa said he was only following orders and he wasn’t paid to ask questions. He wants them both to walk away from each other but “Jason” refuses and they begin to fight.
In the exam room, Liz tries to reassure Jake while Hayden runs past them to go hide. Liz is told by a cop to lock the door.
Jason and Costa fight on the roof while Jason demands to know who Costa is working for. Sam breaks up the fight when she shows up with some cops. After Jason explains what happened, Costa is taken away. Jason informs Sam that whatever Helena did to him, she did the same thing to Costa.
