General Hospital/Julian Jerome and Tony Jones

Question
Hi,

On today's (February 6th) GH episode, when Julian Jerome was conversing with Lucas Jones in the cemetery, Julian stated that he had never met Tony Jones. Now, even though it was a couple of years before I started watching the show, I know a fair amount about the time period when Julian Jerome was on GH originally (1988-1990), and I can't figure out how he could have lived in Port Charles as long as he did without ever meeting Tony. Is there a particular reason I might not be aware of for why the two wouldn't have met, or is it possible Julian Jerome forgot about meeting Tony because they weren't a significant part of each others' lives until Tony adopted Lucas, when Julian was already "dead"?

Thanks much for any insight you can provide,

Josiah

Answer
Hi

I apologize for the delayed response. Had an emergency yesterday.

To the best of my recollection, and the research I have done, I do not think that Julian Jerome and Tony Jones were formally introduced. Their paths may have crossed, but I do not think that they actually knew each other.
Julian may have told Lucas that he didn't know Tony because he didn't want to discuss what happened surrounding Lucas' conception and adoption. Or he could want it all to stay in the past.
The other possibility is that GH did not stay true to its history. But I think the more likely scenario is that the two never formally met.

Soapcentral.com has really good character summaries. Gives great histories of characters.

Lucas - http://soapcentral.com/gh/whoswho/lucas.php

I'm sorry that I could not be of more help. I agree with you, and have not found anything online that supports that the two did meet.

Take care.
