Storylines[edit]

1995-2004[edit]

Georgie is born Georgianna Jones[6] on March 6, 1995, under a table at a club owned by Luke Spencer.[3] She was conceived when professional spy Frisco came back to town to visit his first daughter Maxie who needed a heart transplant. Frisco and his ex-wife Felicia slept together in relief Maxie is going to live. She is named Georgie because Maxie likes the name George. Initially, Felicia wasn't sure whether Frisco or her fiancée Mac Scorpio was Georgie's father, but a DNA test proved Frisco to be the father. Frisco leaves town and does not have an active role in raising his daughters.

Georgie is kidnapped as a baby by evil serial killer Dr. Ryan Chamberlain, who was dating and stalking Felicia. Ryan renames Georgie "Celeste." Eventually Ryan is thwarted and Georgie is returned. Felicia and Mac marry a few years after Georgie's birth. Mac becomes the primary father figure in Maxie and Georgie's lives, even after his marriage to Felicia ends. Both Georgie and Maxie refer to Mac as their father.

Georgie's birth year is later changed to 1989 when Letherman took over the role in 2002 as a SORAS'd teenager.[3]

2005–07[edit]

Georgie is viewed as the smart, sensible sister, in comparison with her feistier older sister Maxie Jones. Wanting to break out of that stereotype and convince Lucas Jones to like her, she recruits Dillon Quartermaine as a stand-in boyfriend. The two end up falling in love. Soon after they began dating, Dillon gets involved with the mob, and Georgie is not pleased. When mob boss Lorenzo Alcazar's niece Sage comes to town, Georgie becomes jealous when Sage is infatuated with Dillon. The couple briefly split up in 2004 when a complicated plot leads Dillon to betray Georgie and sleep with Sage. To make Dillon jealous, Georgie hires a boy to pretend to be her boyfriend. The two couples check into the Port Charles Hotel the night the hotel burns to the ground, however both couples survive the ordeal. Romantic interest is restored in Dillon and Georgie after the experience.

In August 2004, Georgie and Dillon are trapped in the Quartermaine mansion with the rest of the Port Charles teen scene while a killer runs around the mansion. They narrowly survive, but Georgie carries a lot of guilt when Sage is found and killed after being locked in the freezer as a prank. In March 2005, Georgie and Dillon sleep together for the first time. In February 2006, Dillon is infected by a deadly virus epidemic. Georgie and Dillon decide to get married in the hospital chapel before Dillon dies. However, Dillon instead starts to improve. The couple realizes they may be too young for marriage.

In June 2006, Lulu Spencer sets her eyes on Dillon. She schemes with Diego Alcazar to break up the couple, who wanted Georgie to himself. Lulu lies to Dillon and said she saw Georgie and Diego having sex. Georgie denies the incident but Dillon chooses not to believe her. Lulu and Dillon sleep together, pushing Georgie and Dillon even farther apart. Dillon and Georgie divorce, but later start dating again. Not long after, Georgie and Dillon both realize the spark is gone, and end things between them. Dillon leaves town when his brother Ned Ashton, gets him a job in California working for a movie director.

Georgie isn't seen much for the next few months. She then forms a crush on Damien Spinelli, and is heartbroken when Spinelli goes to the Black and White Ball with Nadine Crowell. Georgie asks Spinelli to join her and her family at the Scorpio House for Thanksgiving dinner. At Emily Quartermaine's funeral, Georgie tells Dillon she has met someone new, but still doesn't reveal her feelings to Spinelli.

Maxie's is nearly strangled to death and starts receiving text messages from the Text Message Killer. Georgie is worried and fears for her sister's safety. She became suspicious of Maxie's boyfriend, Cooper Barrett, and teams up with Spinelli to prove Cooper is the killer.

On December 17, 2007, Spinelli finally realizes Georgie's feelings for him after talking to his friend Jason Morgan. As he considers what to do, he is walking through the park when he finds Georgie's lifeless body, strangled by the Text Message Killer.[7] Spinelli calls the police and tries to revive her but is unable to. Mac, Maxie, and Robin are devastated to find out Georgie has been murdered. Spinelli talks to Jason about his guilt over his inability to protect her, and not realizing Georgie’s feelings for him until it was too late.

Felicia Jones returns to attend Georgie's funeral on December 20.[7] Dillon comes back to town and is devastated to find out Georgie is dead. Georgie's funeral is attended by numerous citizens of Port Charles. Maxie delivers Georgie's eulogy where she thanks the guests for the ways they cared about and loved Georgie, and then goes on to berate Felicia for abandoning them.[7] Maxie later sees her crying at Georgie's grave. Robin goes to see Patrick Drake for comfort, and gets pregnant after they sleep together. Robin sees the baby as a blessing from Georgie. Maxie is inconsolable over Georgie's death and lashes out at many people.

Spinelli and Maxie team up to find the Text Message Killer and prove Cooper's innocence. They suspect Logan Hayes and Johnny Zacchara, but find out it is Diego Alcazar. It's learned that Georgie died because she received a text message meant for Maxie, and went to the park in an effort to protect Maxie. She was killed for being at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Ghostly returns[edit]

Georgie appears to Maxie on March 26 and 29, 2010,[2] as she battles pneumonia in the hospital.

On July 11-12, Georgie appears to Maxie again after Maxie avoids telling Lulu the truth that the baby she is carrying is actually hers.

On August 22, Georgie appears to Maxie to show her what she would miss if she died on the table after having an emergency C-section after having a complication with the birth of the baby that was hers. Georgie sees Felicia and Mac siting in the waiting room, and in a touching moment, smiles at them, kissing each of them on their cheeks . Although Mac and Felicia can not see their daughter, Felicia asks Mac "did you feel that?"

On December 5, 2013, Georgie is seen in the cemetery trying to convince Maxie not to kill herself. When Maxie can't hear her, she touches Robin's shoulder to get her to go find Maxie.
