What's your thoughts on the name Emily Scout Morgan for JaSam's new daughter; General Hospital?
Emily Scout Morgan or simply just Scout is a fictional character on the ABC daytime soap opera General Hospital. She is the daughter of former mob boss, Jason Morgan and his wife, Sam Morgan.
She was born onscreen on February 28, 2017. She was named after her paternal adoptive aunt, the late, Emily Quartermaine.
The role of Emily "Scout" Morgan was first portrayed by a set of unknown triplets for four episodes (Feb 28-Mar 3, 2017).As of March 9, 2017, Emily is being portrayed by twins Lori and Sevan Andonian, according to the March 27 issue of ABC Soaps In Depth.
Emily Morgan was conceived in June of 2016 (making her due in March of 2017) 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 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 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, 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.
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, Jason arrives and Sam and Jason 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 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 Emily Scout.
Emily, 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 Emily, 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.
Through her father, she has an older brother named, Jake.
Danny and Emily are the first full siblings born on General Hospital in over 20 years; the last being Maxie and the late, Georgie Jones, daughters of supercouple Frisco and Felicia Jones, born in the 1990s.
Emily "Scout" Morgan was born onscreen February 28, 2017 to Jason and Sam Morgan and was delivered by her father. In late February, Olivia St. John 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.
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 is not 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.
