As General Hospital and its fans get ready to say goodbye to Tony Geary (Luke Spencer) on the July 27th episode of the ABC daytime drama series, GH is releasing some little video gems of retrospective clips of scenes with Tony’s co-stars and his cast mates sharing their sentiments about working alongside of him.

First up was Tony’s longtime on-screen nemesis Kin Shriner (Scott Baldwin) followed by Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) in a very touching tribute, and most recently late last week, Tony’s on-screen sister for 37 years, Jackie Zeman (Bobbie Spencer).

Each moment is very sweet and seeing some clips through the years is always a treat.  The clip with Jackie was Tony’s first GH appearance ever.

Watch and listen to what Jackie, Kin, and Maurice had to share about working with Tony after the jump, and then let us know what you thoughts of the clips and the sentiments they shared.

Remember Luke’s first appearance on #GH? Jacklyn Zeman does. Watch the clip and her #FarewellTony message.

Maybe, Jim. Was there not a movie entitled, “The Two Jakes”?

Yesterday was the first time I had ever seen little Aiden. It was a surprise since I had completely forgotten Liz had another child. Aiden is such a cutie pie. I wanted to eat him up. He’s so little.
That’s a good question, jimh. What kind of child has emerged after spending years in Helena’s clutches and ‘tutelage’?
As far as Jake’s memory? A couple of us actually thought that it is a logical possibility for little Jake to nudge Jake’s memory along. We have already been made aware of his cloudy/vague flashbacks with the toy motorcycles….so, it is possible, albeit Shay feels it will be Sam’s very sexy body that will do the trick…LOL.

@Harry.
Yes, Harry. There is a movie, THE TWO JAKES, starring Jack Nicholson. Imagine that!!

Truly enjoying GH ! 30 million viewers watched their wedding in 1981 and everyone who loved that era should be tuning in now for the next two weeks. Definitely worth the watching !

Mash had 30 million every week and Rhoda’s wedding had 57 million lol ..
I read
Did you know;
Luke and Laura followed Cliff and Nina’s extravaganza wedding, by a year..

Cliff and Nina wed; September 3, 1980
Luke and Laura wed; November 17, 1981

AMC- Nina and Cliff wedding; watching it on YouTube, it was much better than Luke and Laura’s, by far..
There are no numbers as to how many watched but I’d bet it was a notable number..
”Cliff and Nina’s romance enthralled viewers. Chicago Sun-Times, stated, “Nina’s wedding to Cliff Warner is regarded as one of daytime’s most-watched moments and regarded as one of daytime’s most-watched moments.”

I am really enjoying the Luke exit story but not Tony’s leaving 🙁
I know the very last scene will be a heartache ..

(no more Tony/Luke) I do not like that..

You MUST have something better to do than sit around and find new and inventive ways to rag on Genie Francis and her Laura. Lmao. But clearly not. We all get it and have read it ad nauseum…you dont like Genie and you dont like Laura. Can we move on now?

I loved Nina and Cliff’s wedding complete with the horse drawn carriage and the domineering, dastardly father-in-law Palmer Cortlandt, who seemed to harbor a borderline incestuous obsessive for his daughter, Nina.
Palmer Cortlandt, may be one of the most emotionally complex psychological characters in daytime history. And what made him so fascinating is that there was an element of realism injected into his psychological make up. Plus, James Mitchell was an utter gem of an actor. They don’t write them like that anymore, do they? But I regress, er, I mean digress. To your point about Nina and Cliff’s wedding being better than Luke and Laura’s? I don’t agree. Both weddings were equally wonderful in their own way–they were just totally different from each other.

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

DAYS' Christie Clark Shares Coronavirus Health Update

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

TODAY: General Hospital Rebroadcasts Masterful 52nd Anniversary Episode

Fans are in for a treat today (Friday, May 22nd) when ABC’s General Hospital airs an encore presentation of one of the finest hours of soap opera in the history of the genre, with its 52nd anniversary episode from April 1, 2015.

In the episode, viewers finally learned what turned Luke (Tony Geary) into Fluke, which has been the on-going story for months; but it all lead up to the shocking reveal, when Luke revisited his past in his broken down childhood home and the demons that haunted him.

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
