The dress is nice but we all know its about the underwear-Victoria’s Secret wouldnt be much of a secret when Lucy gets exposed-lol

Not a fan of either the NB or the character of Lucy. I guess I’ll be ff’ng a lot during those episodes.

Miss having Lucy as a recurring character. With Kevin potentially getting involved with Laura it would be fun to see a jealous Lucy responding to their budding relationship.

It made my day to see Laura and Doc today!

Mine too! So refreshing to see grownups and hear substantive dialogue. And Genie looked so great in her tailored suit! Suave Jon! An inspired pairing. Timing impeccable.

I would love to have Lucy Coe be a staple in Port Charles. She is a fantastic actress and always a joy to watch.

I love Lucy!! Cannot wait to see her back in Port Charles. Lucy is one of my favorite characters. I would like something to become of that spa her and Laura had started. Looking forward to the Nurses Ball.

I also love Lucy too! I hope the rumors are true that LH will be staying on as Lucy for awhile after the NB ends. Hopefully, now that GF is on contract, we will finally get to see the spa that Lucy and Laura were planning long ago!

Lynn Herring should return to GH full time. She is missed and a lifer. It is upsetting the way the character was treated and Ms. Herring.

Nice dress.

Was so happy to see LH back as LC today. That short scene with Laura and “Doc” spoke more than a five minute scene could have because of the pros who were in it. Love them all. So, yeah, it would be great to have Lucy back in PC more often.

I remember back around the 50th anniversary, Lucy and Laura were going to start a business together and were recruiting people like Felix. Why couldn’t they pick up on that? Lord only knows, Laura’s story line is moving at a snail’s pace. I think only Lucas’ and Brad’s story is moving slower.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Lucas and Brad got a story…what story…i just said more than they even get too!!

Rodd

I agree, Jimh. It’s terribly irritating.

And someone just wrote that they’re killing Lucas off. I hope that’s untrue. If so, I have to wonder if the writers are looking for the same out-crying from the GH fans as they had over at DOOL when they killed off Will. What the heck is wrong with these soap writers? Can they think of nothing else to do than kill off the gays? Ugh!

Amen to your comment that “that short scene with Laura and ‘Doc’ spoke more than a five minute scen could have because of the pros….” And Genie’s dialogue was TRUE to the storyline and characters of Luke and Laura at the time. And Genie was glowing through it all. Kudos to both actors!

And guess everyone has heard the spoiler by now that Tony Geary is returning because Lucas will become a victim of the violence between Sonny’s and Julian’s factions. And, supposedly, TG (“Luke”) will return to help his sister “Barbara Jean” through the grief of losing her son.

And will he also be in Beecher’s Corners when Laura and Kevin get there? Yesterday the real estate person said “Lucy and Lloyd Johnson” were the owners of the former disco property. H-mmm. What say anyone?

Nancy…Time has passed, there has been some time to heal from Fluke and retirement, plus any “slights” Tony may have had towards Genie. So I’ll him another chance, because if he’s a good boy his dropping in could be like the good old days.

I really love Lucy’s dress! Lucy taught me how to get ready to go out in less than 20 minutes when she would go from mousy librarian to glamour girl.

I can’t wait to see what happens!

Loved seeing Lynn/Lucy back…except that I have to use the words “back again.” Wish she was more permanent. PC can use a bit if her zaniness, along with her kind of smarts. It can be such a dull, dark town. Like others, liked the possibility for more of a Doc, Laura and Lucy triangle.

I read that she said she is willing to come back IF they give her a storyline–not just for “drop-ins.”

Rose, I’m with you on your post re giving TG another chance. It was painful to hear the words “Lucy and Lloyd Johnson”–brought up such wonderful memories justaposed with the TG “slights’ of Genie. I felt for her–and for us, the viewers. But maybe “time does heal all wounds”–would be lovely to see TG more gracious and giving in a scene with Genie at Beecher’s Corner–or at Lucas’s funeral–if they kill off Lucas as gossip says they are planning to do. I’m with you on hoping for the best–always.

She looks like she could be Nina’s mom, and Kiki’s grandmother. Imo.

I love Lucy, grew up watching her an her antics. She is a huge part of GH history. Unfortunately, I almost dread seeing the vets come back. As GH is now, if you’re not a Corinthos or involved in the Mob business, you’re just filler. Case in point, the Laura/Kevin/Lucy scene yesterday. It was too short. It almost feels like Frank V. just brings these people back to shut us longtime viewers up.

Lucy being back is the best thing to happen to GH in a long time. Fave character ever. Nina is a 2nd place Lucy wannabe.

Its over, move on, no more Lucy, Nina should host!

I’ve been a fan of Lynn Herring’s since the first time she appeared on my TV screen as Lucy, at that time a mousy librarian. Her transformation into the sexy slinky woman she’s been ever since was spell-binding, and she did it in one scene!

Lynn has been underused by GH for so long, and it’s a shame she’s only asked back for the not-even-annual Nurses Balls.

I hope the writers have found a way of keeping Lynn/Lucy on our screens for the foreseeable future, and give her a new best girlfriend to pal around and get into some trouble with. Just don’t let it be Alexis! (What a mess she is right now.) When the writers DO write a decent story for Lynn, I hope it isn’t one in which Lucy is frenetic and yelling, as she was a couple of years ago when the exercise guru (whose name escapes me … brain-freeze time) returned and tried to take over running the NB.
Give Lynn a great storyline worthy of her talents and she’ll be mesmerizing.

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.

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?

These scenes for anyone who has endured or lived through losing a loved one battling through Alzheimer’s and having to make a life and death decision, and the emotional turmoil and sadness it causes a family, could feel the pain and heartbreak played  by Burton and Benard. That is why Michael Fairman TV gives Steve and Maurice the honors of The Power Performance of the Week.

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.
