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.

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 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… Read more »

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.… Read more »

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!

Yes we need Lucy to have a storyline an a contract…

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.

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… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Courtesy/ABC

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

So, what did you think of Luke’s memorial episode? Favorite parts of it? Least favorite? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out Helena’s videotaped speech and Tracy’s eulogy to Luke below.

Today’s Friday episode of General Hospital, is set to feature the funeral of the iconic Luke Spencer (Tony Geary).

While family and friends will gather on the Haunted Star to memorialize him, what been teased by the ABC daytime drama is it will also set a whole storyline in motion.

ABC7 entertainment guru, George Pennacchio, spoke to several of the GH cast, who are involved in the episode including: Luke Spencer’s long-time love, Laura played by Genie Francis.

Francis exclaimed on the whole story: “I just have a hard time believing, in my heart, that the great Luke Spencer died in an accident.  No one stays dead on a soap. I don’t know how many times I’ve been dead. Really!”

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

Luke’s longtime friend played by Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) shared: “And has it actually happened? I mean, frankly, we have a little urn about this big that’s supposed to contain him and that’s it.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”

Watch Pennacchio chat with the GH stars below.
