A GH Thanksgiving: "First We Sing … And Then We Eat!" But, Who Is The Game-Changing Guest?



General Hospital has so many intriguing stories going on right now that you just never know who just might be behind door number two!  In a promo for this week’s Thanksgiving episode airing today, the series teases there will be a game-changing guest! But, who could it be?

Featured in the promo are: Spencer (Nicolas Bechtel), Carly (Laura Wright), Michael (Chad Duell), Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) and Lulu (Emme Rylan), Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn), Julian (William deVry), Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Patrick (Jason Thompson), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and “Jake”  (Billy Miller), to name just a few.

Tracy (Jane Elliot) utters the infamous “Thanksgiving at the Q’s” line brought into prominence by her late father Edward, “First we sing, and then we eat!”

Watch the promo after the jump! Then let us know who you think the game-changing guest will turn out to be? Faison, Jason, Helena, Ric, someone else?

When Alexis says “There is someone who would like to see all of you,” it makes me think it is none of the above.

Maybe it is Luke? I do not read spoiler sites so I have no clue, but I just do not believe it is anyone mentioned above.

I don’t have a clue, either.. who will it be?
RC and team are brilliant with twists and turns and surprises,
so it could be Santa Claus!
This sweeps will go down in soap history as the best of the best..

Also– a BRAVO for Carly (Laura Wright), Michael (Chad Duell) !!!!
they brought is home, awesome!!

ohhhh ..
Helena knows ”Jakle” is ”Jason”…
when Jake opened the door Helena knew and the Cassadines want Jason back, they spent 2 years and millions of dollars on Jason for whatever their reason for bring him back from dead, and they want him back..
Now that Helena knows who and where Jason is, it is going to get good, very good..
I can hardly wait for that story.. Billy Miller will soon have a big story with the Cassadines !!

The story will highlight the very best of the actors of GH..

You are right, PV Jr! It is indeed the real Luke.
Today’s show was very good. I miss Edward but so glad to finally see Michael back home where he belongs.
I refuse to see Sonny and Carly as victims–they are reaping what they sowed. And it’s about time.

sigh–now I hear that Helena may have switched Lukes. Shoot I hope not.

Did you hear that Harry? Sorry…I HAVE to give myself credit…LOL!

Actually, what I’m thinking and fearing is that she actually killed the real Luke and Fluke will go on for quite a bit longer undetected…until TG decides to make his exit.

There doesn’t seem to be anything else it could be…Helena just strolls out of Luke’s “room” knowing that Alexis now knows he’s in there. She just had no reaction…which could only mean she either did a swap and they’re both still alive…or the real Luke is on ice somewhere…

I have to finish my thought. When I said I had to give myself credit I meant I was thinking as soon as Helena walked out of Luke’s padded room and showed no worry of being detected, or of Alexis finding him, I assumed the real Luke was no longer in there…

Helene did switch Lukes…rumor is that this storyline ends at the 2015 Nurses Ball with both Fluke and Luke appearing on stage at the same time, and no one in the crowded room knows which is the real Luke and which is the Fluke…lights briefly go out…both Lukes have disappeared from the stage…both Lukes battle it out over a large waterfall just as the Keystone cops of Anna, Dante, and Nathan show up…one of the Lukes falls and disappears over the waterfall and ‘real’ Luke is reunited with Tracy and his family but is he really Luke or Fluke…ok, its just a rumor im trying to start…lol

Haha…I like it jimh!

Bring on the Q’s comedic Thanksgiving, please!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Thats Fluke not Luke that Alexis found and brought to the Q Mansion…

jimh! you’re back!!!! that’s great! and I agree with you. welcome back and Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Holidays to you too…good to be back!!!

Thats the whole point of the story, she wasn’t suppose to mention the guest name. they want leave us in suspense, and no it might not be any of the people mentioned , but that’s the whole point of this storyline, to keep us guessing!

I sincerely doubt that was really Luke Alexis rescued– Helena wasn’t upset to see Alexis there— no one tired to stopped them from leaving—after keeping the guy under wraps for months they suddenly just let him out the door? I don’t think so—my guess the real Luke was taken away before they even got there- and this is Fluke pt 2–except this time he is going to play it smarter– act more like the real Luke now everyone knows there is a fake Luke out there.l

I also said it was Fluke…i bet in the story climax both Fluke and Luke will appear together at some crowded function(hopefully not 2015 Nurses Ball…lol) and no one will know which is the real and which is the fake or one will disapear over a waterfall during a duel leaving us wondering if the real Luke survived!!!

Yes that is a possibility- I’m still waiting to find out on Y&R that Lauren shot the real Phyllis and Sheila has been living Phyllis’s life all these years– this was back when Sheila had plastic surgery to look like Phyllis. But that kind of story is more GH’s style, so I could definitely see them doing exactly what you said– of course now with Chris Pratt is writing Y&R, maybe Phyllis is really Sheila — who is who, it is so confusing– but as long as we know who we are that what counts right–lol

Gina T.(Phylis or Sheila…would be great if she was the latter) and Adams story got me watching Y&R more often than usual…i was hoping Sage had Adam look like Gabrial in a plot to get Constance’s money…i thought Gab died before Sage could marry him and is using Adam to continue her plot…she knows who he ‘really’ is and blackmails him to play the part of Gabrial as she continues her sinister plot to get Constance’s money…guess i watch too many Lifetime movies…lol…my apologies for going off the subject…meanwhile i thought it dumb that Anna thought it was better keeping Faison in some hole to prevent him from escaping knowing how he always escapes some maximum security prison…Faison and Heather would make a great pair!!!…lol

Oh Jim, always making me smile! As it stands right now Anna’s decision to drop Faison in that hole with Nik’s adolescent son just feet away is wacky!! If it was Sonny dropped down that hole I could argue he’s claustrophobic & that would be a fun place to leave HIM. So far I’m missing the logic in this reveal.

So Mary SF, does that imply that Sheila Carter has now moved on to Port Charles in the form of Phyllina Cray, I mean, Clay? Would explain an awful lot!!!!! Of course, I only jest, but while Sheila’s special sort of insanity was clever and bearable on B&B, I have to say that I am one who is squarely NOT in the corner of enjoying that nefarious nutcase, Nina….my happiest viewing days are when she is out of sight and mind! I so want her (and MS….) to leave the GH canvas and NEVER return!!!!!!

I think it could’ve been Luke or Fluke, Helena or Faison. I really thought Robin would pop up on today’s show. She must be near cause Helena is here. I think Bill Eckert is Fluke. They need to hurry & wrap up the Fluke stuff so we can get Ric out of witness protection. I can’t wait to see Julian’s face when he finds out Ric is alive & probably madder than a wet hen at Julian.

What a good last few days of shows for GH. I’m so, so sorry, but others can bash GH all they want. I’m referring to the whiners on the other social media sites who turn their nose up at GH. GH had the best November sweeps by far. I have no idea what Days had. Were they even writing for sweeps? They didn’t even mention Thanksgiving today.

I can’t wait to see the next arc of this Jake/Jason story. I read a spoiler about something that happens soon, so don’t read if you don’t want to know..It said Carly’s going to offer him a job at MC. So I don’t know if that means when he gets free after Helena kidnaps him or before? Something big’s about to happen, because Mr. Miller is buff as f**k! He was never, ever that ripped on Y&R, so he seems to be buffing up for some action scenes & maybe because some Jason Morgan fire & edge is about to come out.

Agreed, 100% about GH having the best sweeps month. DAYS, Y&R and B&B do not even compare in terms of story to GH right now. Y&R, GH’s biggest competition in terms of ratings, has been getting progressively better, but GH has been on FIRE. All the drama, intensity, and return of some great villains/actors has made GH’s sweeps stories the best, by far.

I just hope the story keeping moving forward next week and does NOT languish in the graveyard of ‘seat-of-the-pants’ storytelling that GH tends to fall into.

Please, please, please let the writers showcase their professsionalism by showing us fully developed plots that entertain and satisfy.

Right, Engrady. I can’t help but think they are making it up as they go along.
The Fluke mystery has dragged on long enough and now that it seems almost certain that the Luke who appeared in the Q mansion is actually Fluke, it seems that the game of smoke and mirrors will continue.

Fluke/Luke is not dragging on it is now continuing..
The story was on hold while Tony was gone..
Now, it starts, picks up where it left off so to say..
It is a great story full of suspense and surprises, i like it, a lot!!
Now that it is continuing on it might be a awhile before the end, and that is ok, great story..

one thing we know..
Fluk is not Faison as many thought he was..

There’s no way it was Luke who Alexis and Julian rescued from Miscavige. If it was really Luke, why wouldn’t Helena have killed him with that dagger, and why would she have let Alexis and Julian walk in right after the fact? Plus, Fluke/Helena/Jerry/Larry/ whoever else they are in cahoots with would not have let Luke be rescued that easily after keeping him locked up for almost a year. I think they made a switch, kidnapped Luke to somewhere secret (like that hole in Wyndemere) and replaced him with Fluke, so Fluke would be rescued and resume his chaos on the Q’s.

Aside from the Luke/Fluke story, I’m loving GH these days. The Franco/Nina scenes are amazing, they have so much chemistry together. Ditto for the Liesl/Anna scenes, those two are magnificent together. Seeing Sonny in jail is so incredibly satisfying, as is seeing Michael stand up to Carly & Sonny, rid himself of all things Corinthos, and embrace his Q side.

I’m also LOVING the Jake/Jason story they are building. It would have been too forced to have his identity come out right away, I like how they are slowly integrating him back in everyone’s lives. And Billy Miller is amazing, he’s so incredibly talented and I love his scenes with Elizabeth, they have great chemistry. Plus, it’s very intriguing to see Helena and Faison talk about their plans for him. Speaking of which, I love having both Helena and Faison back! Arguably GH’s two greatest villains sharing scenes together is fantastic, but they’re also sharing a storyline which is phenomenal!

GH is on fire and has been the whole month. Ever since the Hallowedding, GH has been can’t miss daily excitement and intrigue. I don’t remember the last time I have enjoyed sweeps on any soap this much. GH has a plethora of phenomenal actors, and if only there could be multiple winners for each Emmy category, then Michelle Stafford, Roger Howarth, Maura West, Laura Wright, Maurice Benard and Chad Duell would all take home the gold. The acting, writing and directing at GH has been at its best, and I hope it continues!

Jimmy and
jimh(leave it to beaver)
I agree..
It is Fluke not Luke that Alexis and Julian brought home..
How exciting is this going to be!!
Faison and Helena .. whao and wow! good stuff coming!!

(and Dr O and Faison …

Helena has never wanted Luke dead. She only wants to break him down into little pieces & torment him psychologically.

It was a lovely present to the viewers. The Thanksgiving episode had something for everyone and a few golden moments. It was simple in so many ways and complex in others. I especially appreciated the little moments that made it a bit sweet.

Good job, everyone at GH!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Ava Receives a Haunting Letter About Austin’s Murder

On Thursday’s November 30th episode of General Hospital, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) is on the case of who shot Austin (Roger Howarth) and pays a visit to Ava Jerome (Maura West) at Wyndemere.

Dante asks Ava when was the last time she saw Dr. Austin Gatlin-Holt. She asks why and what is going on with Austin? Dante tells her he’s dead, and assumes she must already know, especially given her non-reaction to the news.

Ava tells Dante she was last with Austin two days ago at her gallery. When he questions her if security footage can back that up, that would then give her an alibi. However, Ava explains she left out the back, and that the surveillance camera has not been working. Since the murder happened in Pautauk, Dante tells Ava they will want to question her.


She responds that a lot of people in town knew Austin from Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and on. However, Dante points out that Ava was the only one that was kidnapped by Mason (Nathanyael Grey). Ava says she will have her lawyer ready.

As Dante exits, Ava looks through her unopened mail. She finds a letter addressed to her and it says inside on note paper, “You’re welcome.” But that’s not all, inside the letter is a polaroid of Austin’s dead body.


Also in story, Molly (Kristen Vaganos) has a meltdown when she has to start the finding a surrogate process all over again, and is found crying on a park bench by her sister, Kristina (Kate Mansi). Will this be the conversation where Molly will take up Kristina on her initial offer to carry the child for her and TJ (Tahj Bellow)?


In another key moment, James thinks Cody (Josh Kelly) would make a great big brother, which then gets Felicia (Kristina Wagner) flashing back to when Cody told Mac that it turns out Mac is not his bio-dad. Felicia senses something is not right. Is she finally on to the fact that Cody lied to Mac? Stay tuned.


So, who do you think sent the letter to Ava about killing Austin? Is it Nikolas? Cyrus? Mason? Could it be Ava herself, who doesn’t remember she did the deed, or could it be someone else? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

GH’s Scarlett Fernandez on Charlotte’s Mindset: “She Completely Believes That Anna is Out to Get Her”

Once returning to General Hospital, Scarlett Fernandez (Charlotte) has been involved in a juicy storyline, where an impressionable young Charlotte Cassadine has been persuaded almost brain-washed, if you will, via a letter from Victor Cassadine from the grave.

In it, he implores Charlotte to keep Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) away from her father, Valentin (James Patrick Stuart). So, taking that to heart, Charlotte burned Anna’s house down and much more.  When she gets shot by Anna after intruding into the super spy’s apartment, the stakes get even higher.

Valenin had figured out that Charlotte was stalking Anna and trying to do her harm, but did not inform Anna. That has caused a major rift in their relationship.  Meanwhile, Laura (Genie Francis) and Valentin confronted Charlotte after she returned home from the hospital.

Photo: ABC

In her latest interview with Soap Opera Digest, Fernandez shared on getting to play this kind of story: “It’s definitely an honor because when I was little, I was getting storylines, but this is just crazy! I kind of feel like I’m treated like an adult on the show now, almost, and it’s just been great. I’ve been given great stuff and the fact that Frank (Valentini, EP, GH) and all of his co-workers have trusted me has just been an amazing feeling.”

With everyone confronting Charlotte on her dirty deeds against Anna, and her denying it, Fernandez weighs-in on just where Charlotte is at this point in her mind: “I think that she definitely realizes that the people around her don’t believe her and don’t trust her and I think that really frustrates her because she completely believes that Anna is out to get her. So that (the adults in her life don’t believe her) is hard for her.”

Photo: ABC

There is also burgeoning chemistry between Jake (Hudson West) and Charlotte! So what does Fernandez think of that? Is she using him, or could be the beginning of young love? She expressed: “I think it’s definitely a little bit of both. I think that maybe she and Jake are partners-in-crime, but I also think that Jake has or will have a good influence on her. She just really needs someone to be there for her and for her to be able to confide in and I think that he has been that.”

So, have you been enjoying Scarlett’s performances as a troubled Charlotte? Would you like to see Jake and Charlotte have a ‘date’? Do you think Charlotte needs deprogramming to help her out of the grip that Victor has on her; as she believes Anna is the cause of all the trouble that will come her father’s way, if she doesn’t find a way to get rid of her? Weigh-in via the comment section below.
