General Hospital spoilers reveal Jasper “Jax” Jacks (Ingo Rademacher) is back for Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy) as she deals with the Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) coming health crisis and losing Oscar Nero (Garren Stitt). After announcing his departure from The Bold And The Beautiful, Ingo confirmed that he will indeed be back in town as Jasper Jacks.
Social media buzzes about why he’s back but fans are thrilled. So, what’s next for Jax on GH and why is he back? Ingo Rademacher posted on Twitter that “Jax’s legacy is going to continue in a BIG way”. Certainly, that left fans in suspense. There are two brewing plotlines that could use a little Jax in them – and both are sad… Let’s see what could be next for Jax in Port Charles.
General Hospital Spoilers: Carly Corinthos Drops Baby Bomb On Sonny
On Valentine’s Day, Carly Corinthos shocked Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) when she told him she’s pregnant. Due to Sonny’s loss of words, she is worried that he doesn’t want this baby. No doubt, Sonny will come around after the shock wears off. However, a bigger issue might lay ahead for Carly that will affect Josslyn Jacks as well.
GH spoilers suggest Carly’s pregnancy may be false and caused by a medical problem. She told Sonny she took two home pregnancy tests, but hasn’t seen a doctor to confirm. Since ovarian cancer can cause pregnancy symptoms and false positive pregnancy tests, Carly’s OB/GYN appointment at General Hospital could bring sad and not happy news.
Every February, GH launches a new medical storyline that aligns to a big social cause for them to promote. They have done (among others) bipolar disorder, HIV, breast cancer, lung cancer, Alzheimer’s, and now it might be ovarian cancer. Many GH soap stars have worked closely with an ovarian cancer charity. If Carly Corinthos was facing a life-threatening illness, of course Jax would come back to support her and comfort Josslyn Jacks.

GH Spoilers: Jasper Jacks Back for Josslyn Jacks
General Hospital spoilers hint Jax’s return must be about his daughter Josslyn. There’s the looming possible health crisis for her mom. Even if Carly Corinthos really is pregnant, she’s past 45 and high-risk, so it could be dangerous for her to carry another baby. But it might not be about Carly at all. This return could be about Josslyn Jacks and Oscar.
Because, Jax may show up as Josslyn Jacks struggles with Oscar’s impending death. However, his medical crisis is NOT the February “cause” for the soap. If it was, they would have had informative and promotional messages as soon as he was diagnosed. So, the February medical crisis is not yet revealed – and could be Carly Corinthos.
Josslyn Jacks is hit doubly hard by bad situations. So her dad Jax comes back to town. With Oscar dying, although he got a brief reprieve recently, and Carly heading into medical trouble (with cancer or a high-risk pregnancy), she needs her dad back in town. Sonny gets the travel ban lifted so Jax can come back.
Rekindled Romance For Car-Jax On General Hospital?
GH spoilers predict another possibility for Jax’s comeback could be a romantic reunion with Carly Corinthos. Certainly, this is a hot topic online – but it sure seems like a long shot. Many fans would love to see Carly and Jax back together. Perhaps a medical scare could be what opens the door for a reconciliation. However, coming back for Josslyn makes more sense.
Also, Sonny and Carly seem rock-solid right now. General Hospital seems to have backed off the chemistry between Sonny and Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson). Plus, Maurice Benard said in a recent interview that CarSon stays solid. So despite some fans shipping them, a CarJax reunion seems unlikely. But Josslyn needs her dad.
Whatever the reason for Ingo Rademacher bringing Jasper Jacks home to Port Charles, Jax is most definitely a welcome return. Watch ABC weekdays to see when Jax arrives and the impact it will have on many PC players including Josslyn Jacks and Carly Corinthos.
