‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Jax Is Back – Why He’s Back and What Keeps Him Around?

General Hospital spoilers show Jasper Jacks (Ingo Rademacher) is on the way back to Port Charles. So, this time Jax has a new look and a new storyline as he returns. Given the current plot lines, no doubt he’s back to lend emotional support to daughter Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy) when she loses Oscar Nero (Garren Stitt). But what’s next that keeps Jax in town on the ABC soap?

General Hospital Spoilers: Jasper Jacks Is Back

A new and improved Jasper Jacks returns to town, just in time to lend his family some support. Fan-favorite character Jax has a new look, as portrayer Ingo Rademacher revealed on social media. There’s also a new storyline to kick things off on GH. Spoilers so say he is back to town for a reason.

First, Jax heads back to Port Charles to be there for his daughter, Joss. As viewers know, Josslyn has a tough road ahead as her boyfriend Oscar Nero has a brain tumor. Oscar’s tumor isn’t operable and he’s got just a few weeks left. The timing seems like it’ll be May sweeps when she loses her first love.

Of course, Josslyn and Oscar are hoping for a miracle, though one has yet to appear on General Hospital. Jasper Jacks would definitely show up for his daughter, but this is a full-fledged return, not just a drop by for a funeral. However, he’ll stick around and that means he gets a storyline of his own. But what could it be?

GH Spoilers: Carly Could Use Jasper Jacks’ Support

Jasper Jacks will also be in town to support his ex Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright), much as he always does on General Hospital. While Jax hates her husband Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard), and has for a long time, he’ll always support Carly. Even when she does things that annoy him.

So, Jax learns Carly is pregnant with Sonny’s baby. As her pregnancy has already been determined high-risk, Jax may be part of that story. While Sonny and Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) are already worried for her, Jax is sure to be there with support and encouragement as well.

So, the Jasper Jacks comeback starts with him showing to support loved ones. However, there could be some new, fun storylines that Jax has from the get-go. With Sonny and Carly in a good place, there’s no room for romancing his ex on GH. But there are other ladies in Port Chuck that wouldn’t mind time with the hunky Aussie.

General Hospital: Jax Gets a Love Interest?

There are many new stories that could occur with Jasper Jacks’ return. Ingo Rademacher shared on Instagram that he begins shooting at the beginning of April which marks a May sweeps return for Jax on GH. That also coincides with when Oscar Nero likely runs out of time.

But after the funeral on General Hospital, it could be that Jax gets a new lady love (or revisits a past love). There’s Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Henderickson) who is at loose ends. Maybe a handsome man could improve her grouchy disposition. Plus, Margaux and Jax both have grudges against Sonny, so that could bond the duo.

There’s also Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) to consider. Getting a blast from the past with Jax could keep her mind off Julian Jerome (William deVry). So, maybe Jasper Jacks knocks on the lady lawyer’s door when he hits Port Charles against. With just weeks to go before Jax is back, keep an eye out for spoilers and hints on what’s in store.
