What happened with Drew in the past?

Drew and his twin brother have had a rocky life. From being separated in infancy to being raised in two different households without knowing each other, Drew finally joined the Navy as Andrew Cain. His life changed again after he was kidnaped while on tour in Afghanistan.

Drew becomes an experiment in memory transference that eventually leads to his presumed death. His brother becomes the next target and carries his brother’s memories as a brainwashed subject. The twins meet again in a drama-filled hate fest until they sort out their identities. Soon after Jason’s life is once again compromised because of the reappearance of Hank Archer, who had more plans to implant memories and brainwash Jason.

Once again Drew was declared dead when his plane crashed into the water with no known survivors. However, it is later pointed out by Jason, as he carries Drew’s memories, that Navy SEALs believe water is their best friend and know how to survive and disappear in it. Now, Drew is back and still in trouble.

Everyone knows Drew and Sam’s little girl is his whole life. As Drew races back into her life through a phone call, Drew is in trouble and needs help. He called her because he was sure she would be able to assist him. While Mathison is taking over the role of Drew, played by two other actors before him, his debut into General Hospital‘s scenes is only vocal.

We don’t get to actually see Mathison portray Drew until the next episode. Mathison told Entertainment Weekly that he believes there is still enough untapped potential in the Drew character that he can draw on to create a great character. Drew will continue to be at General Hospital for an unknown amount of time, as Mathison was reluctant to state how long his contract was.
