Palmer and Poe Parker as Scout Cain

Twins Lori and Sevan Andonian portrayed Scout from March 9, 2017 to July 28, 2017.[3][4][5][6]

Scout has been portrayed by twins Palmer and Poe Parker since October 25, 2017.[7]

As of July 1, 2019, the role of Scout has been recast with Ella Ramacieri.




Emily Scout was conceived in June of 2016 (making her due in March of 2017[8]) in London, while her parents were on the run from the law. While in Greece, Sam experiences fatigue and dizzy spells that lead to her fainting twice.

After returning home to Port Charles, she faints again after a confrontation with her father and is admitted to General Hospital. Dr. Hamilton Finn examines her and takes her blood to run tests. A little while later, he returns with some of the blood results, which confirmed the pregnancy. Sam is elated and she can’t wait to tell “Jason".

When “Jason" arrives at the hospital, he is happy to see that Sam is okay, but before she can tell him about the baby, he has a dizzy spell. Dr. Finn examines “Jason" and discovers that he has a 102° fever and might have contracted malaria (he did contract it but was treated and cured) from being in the Mediterranean.

Since Sam was also there, she was tested as well, because if she had contracted the disease, it could cause complications for her pregnancy such as anemia, low birth weight and stillbirth. As a result and out of fear, Sam puts off telling “Jason" about the pregnancy for a little while.

On August 15, Sam tells “Jason" that she's pregnant and he's elated. Afterwards, Sam tells him that she and the baby might have malaria and that's why she didn't tell him right away because she was scared and also didn't know if the baby will even make it. “Jason" reassures Sam that no matter what they are in this together (take his hand and he'll always be there and never let go) and that the baby is here now because they love each other.

The first and second tests for malaria come back negative, reassuring Sam and “Jason" that she and the baby would be alright. Like her pregnancy with Danny, Sam experienced a lot of morning sickness during the first trimester of her pregnancy.

During her parent's "second wedding" on September 2, 2016 (shown on September 2 and 6), a toast was made in her honor. On October 21, Sam and Jason felt the baby kick for the first time. On October 25, Sam and “Jason" tell Danny that they are having a baby and that he will be a big brother. Danny is excited and nicknames the baby, Scout (which is also what “Jason" and Sam called the baby throughout the pregnancy, what her middle name is and what she will go by).

On November 1, Sam was hospitalized for what was later revealed to be round ligament pain,[9] something that is very common during pregnancy, but was told to take it easy. On December 7, “Jason" and Sam went in for an ultrasound and decided not to find out the gender. Their OBGYN, Dr. Kelly Lee gives them an envelope with the baby's gender written down on it in case they decide they want to know.


Scout with her parents

On December 21, Maxie Jones throws Sam a baby shower. Alexis, Monica, Carly, Kristina and Molly all attend. Monica gifted Sam and the baby with a Quartermaine family heirloom -- the spoon Edward and Lila used to feed Alan when he was a baby. Alexis gifted Sam and the baby with a rocking motorcycle and Kristina gifted Sam and the baby with a little leather jacket. Toward the end of the shower, Maxie surprised Sam with a gender reveal cake. Sam is initially upset that Maxie stole the envelope she got from Dr. Lee, which held the baby's gender, but she quickly forgives Maxie and the cake remains uncut.

Later on, “Jason" arrives and they decide to find out the gender of their baby together. With all of the party guests gone, they cut into the cake and find out the gender, but it's not revealed to the audience.

In January 2017, Sam experienced cramping and was told yet again to take it easy. On February 8, Sam has another prenatal appointment and afterward she and “Jason" are told that all of her blood work and most of her tests came back normal. However, during the fetal non stress test[10] the baby's heart rate didn't increase like it was supposed to. Dr. Lee assured them that it's nothing to be concerned about; the baby was likely just sleeping, but she wanted them to be aware of it. On February 22, Monica gives “Jason" his old baby blanket, knitted by his grandmother, Lila, as a gift for baby Scout.


Scout with her parents and big brother, Danny

Scout, like her older brother, Danny, is seen as a miracle child because in May of 2006, Sam was shot in the back by Manny Ruiz, while in Jason's arms. She recovered after a month-long stay in the hospital; and later, she and Jason tried to start a family only to be told that she would never be able to have children as a result of the extensive damage done to her uterus from the gunshot wound. However, in May of 2011, Sam underwent a procedure called fertility reconstruction; the surgery was a success, allowing her to carry Danny to term. When she was revealed to be pregnant with baby Scout, she told "Jason" that after the fertility reconstruction and carrying Danny to term, the doctors didn’t know if she would ever be able to conceive again (without fertility treatments[11]).[12][13][14]

Through her mother, she had an older sister Lila McCall, who was stillborn on November 8, 2004 and a older brother named, Danny.

Through her father, she had an older brother named, Oscar, who died from a cancerous brain tumor on April 29, 2019 (shown on May 1, 2019).

Scout was born during the year of the Phoenix (or Rooster), which is also what her mother, Sam symbolizes.[15]



Baby Emily Scout

Emily Scout was born onscreen February 28, 2017 to Drew Cain and Sam Morgan and was delivered by her father. In late February, Olivia Jerome kidnapped, threatened and pushed a very pregnant Sam off a bridge and luckily, she and Scout both survive the fall. As a result of the fall, Sam goes into labor. “Jason" and Alexis quickly discover that Sam is missing and put the pieces together that "Liv," Alexis's AA sponsor, is really Olivia Jerome, Julian's sister. Jason finds a photo on Sam's phone that gives him a clue to where she is. He immediately goes out in search of her while Sam experiences rapidly increasing contractions.


Baby Scout

“Jason" finds Sam, half conscious and in labor at the bottom of the bridge. He tries to get her to a hospital, but she tells him that it's too late and the contractions are coming too close together. With no time to waste, “Jason" delivers the baby and it's revealed that the baby is a little girl. However, she isn't breathing when she's born. Sam begs “Jason" to save their baby and he quickly administers CPR and gets Scout breathing again. But, just as the baby recovers, Sam passes out.


Scout in the hospital

“Jason" is able to wake Sam up and she and the baby lock eyes for the first time and they have a family hug. Sam tries to get “Jason" to take their daughter and go, but he refuses to leave her and then they both notice that Sam is still bleeding heavily. “Jason" tells Sam that he is going to carry both her and their daughter out of there. He hands Sam their daughter and carries them to safely just as the paramedics arrive and Sam passes out again. They arrive at the hospital where it's revealed that Scout was showing signs of cold stress and she was taken to be warmed up. While Scout was okay, her mother was not and Sam was taken into surgery to repair some internal bleeding. Later on, Scout gets a visit from her dad and aunt Robin.
