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.

Harry

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

rebecca1

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…

rebecca1
rebecca1

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…

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

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

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

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

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!!!

Mary SF

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

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

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

Laurie

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.

Shay
Shay

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!!!!!!

Laurie

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.

Jimmy

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.

Harry
Harry

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.

su0000

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..

Jimmy

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!

It is Fluke not Luke that Alexis and Julian brought home..

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!

GH’s Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

Courtesy/ABC

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.
