General Hospital spoilers promised exciting stuff for Jasper Jacks’ (Ingo Rademacher) return and a set insider says Drew Cain (Billy Miller) is part of Jax’s storyline. Although it seems strange at first glance for these two strangers to jump into a plot together, the behind the scenes info explains and it makes total sense. Here’s a glance at how Jax and Drew meet, what they have in common, and what they do together on the ABC sudser.
General Hospital Spoilers: Jax is Back for Oscar Nero Funeral
GH spoilers showed Oscar Nero’s (Garren Stitt) sad passing on Wednesday. His loved ones discover his death on Thursday. Soon, Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) calls Jax as Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy) falls apart. Of course, her dad rushes to Port Charles. Jax’s first airdate is next week on May 7. Of course, with Josslyn dating Oscar, that puts Jax at the funeral and explains how he meets Drew Cain.
General Hospital spoilers also remind that these two had little reason (or occasion) to overlap on the soap. When Drew came to town as an amnesiac, Jax was long gone. He only came back a few times and the interaction was almost solely with Josslyn, Carly, and Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard). So, in essence, Drew and Jax are pretty much strangers to each other. But grief pulls them together and they get to know each other.

GH Spoilers: Jax and Drew Cain – Lots in Common
The show might skip ahead and have Jax already knowing the twin twist with Drew and Jason Morgan (Steve Burton). Or General Hospital spoilers might re-explain it once the two men get together. Either way, longtime viewers know that Jax and Jason were no fans of each other. Jax is a law and order type of guy who does not like Sonny’s mob lifestyle. He also doesn’t like Carly and Josslyn being around the criminal element.
However, Jax tries to look past it and is there for the funeral so he won’t make a big deal. But, no doubt, Jax will be happy to learn that Drew Cain is not like his twin Jason. As Drew was a soldier, not a mob hit man, they can see eye to eye. Now, both Jax and Drew are successful businessmen. Plus, their kids were in love, so they have a lot of common ground. You can see it will be natural for Drew and returning Jasper Jacks to strike up a friendship, say GH spoilers.

General Hospital: What’s Next for Drew and Jasper Jacks?
So, the inside set source offered GH spoilers about them. Beyond being pals, there’s a storyline ahead for Jax and newfound buddy Drew. Even though it was bought with Jason’s money, Drew Cain still owns Aurora Media. It’s that business venture that brings the two men together. Reportedly, Jasper Jacks will stick around this time, so the writers set up a story where Jax and the amnesiac jump into a business venture together.
The premise is that the two men find they like each other. They bond over Oscar and Josslyn but then develop their own relationship that’s personal as buddies – and that spreads into the business. Aside from Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner), Drew doesn’t have a ton of pals in town. As for Jax, General Hospital spoilers indicate he doesn’t have a ton of drinking buddies around either, even though he’s a longstanding character.
The upshot is that GH fans will get to see Jax make friends with Drew. This sets the stage for the next storyline for Drew Cain and something for Jasper Jacks to do while he sticks around Port Chuck after the funeral. Watch for Ingo Rademacher’s return next week and then Jasper Jacks to meet Drew and things to roll from there. Watch ABC daytime for the sad Oscar storyline to continue this week.
