Pardon an aging Devil’s fuzzy memory but….. did Curtis ever actually know Luke?? I’m thinking he came to town after Luke was already gone…. but Hell knows I’ve mentally blocked out all of that “Fluke” nonsense and the dragonshit exit story that ReRon wrote for Luke, so I could be mistaken.

I thought the same with Ava. Can’t recall her knowing Luke either, but being Nick’s wife that could be why she is there too.

FYI: when Ava was introduce on GH it was Luke who she first interacted with.

Can someone refresh my memory as to why Curtis is there? I don’t recall he and Luke sharing any scenes. Yes, he’s Laura’s friend, but that’s a stretch.

Figured Ned & Olivia would be there for Tracy. Lucy also had a quirky bond with Mr. Spencer.

As for special guests – just speculating here – I wouldn’t be surprised by Ethan popping in, even Skye and maybe even Lucky and Lesley.

Steve
Curtis just showed up as support for his friend Laura, because Kevin had a patient emergency. As in real life, there are always some questionable shows and no shows.

I do not believe that Luke is dead. I think that Luke is letting people believe that he is dead because something is going on.

I agree 100%. Nobody’s ever really dead in soap operas!

Exactly what I think. I don’t think GH will have a real ” good by” for Luke til he dies in real life.We shall see.

Anne
I don’t care if he’s dead or alive but why then has Nicolas’s Uncle admitted on the phone to someone that he neutralized Luke? I also don t think Luke had any say in the matter

Violet- Luke being neutralized does not mean he is actually dead. All that would be necessary is to convince Tracy that Luke is permanently gone. All the while, Luke could be locked up in an underground location.

Anne,
I didn’t mean that. I meant that Victor told someone that he neutralized Luke which does not necessary mean killed him so why aren’t people looking into other possibilities. Anna, for instance, if someone sneezes she’s looking to the WSB for answers, but not Luke’s “death”.

It is so hard to invest emotionally in fake funerals on soaps. We know Luke is not dead, we know Tony Geary is not returning unless he dips too far into his Savings. We just had Sonny back from the dead, Jason just fake died, Peter keeps returning from the dead, etc etc.

This “funeral” should be more about the characters left behind, and new story that can spring from it.

The witty banter and one-liners should make this a very interesting episode.

Why is Curtis there? To my knowledge, he and Luke never even met. Also, I’m surprised Lucas isn’t there given the fact that Luke was (still is, because he’s definitely not dead) his uncle. And what about Kevin? Wouldn’t he be there to support Laura? Speaking of which, it would be really nice for Lucky and Ethan to return to town, and for Lulu to wake up from her coma. The Spencers need to be reunited.

As For Luke, I think it’s only a matter of time before he turns up alive, probably being held captive along with Holly. I doubt Victor is working alone, which means there’s probably another Cassadine waiting in the wings somewhere. Who will it be this time? Stavros, Stefan or Helena back from the dead (again)? Or another villain from Luke and Laura’s past?

Where are Elizabeth and her boys? Aiden is actually Luke’s grandchild

Curtis is there but yet Liz the mother of his grandchild is not! This is one of the reasons I left this show. Don’t tell me about budgets don’t want to hear the crap you have budget enough for RH to play 800 characters! One life to live got canceled it’s time to grow up was it better then GH I don’t know I think it had filming in NY running it against it! Always has been about costs!

It does not make any sense to have the funeral without either one of his sons there. Poor writing. I don’t think Curtis knew Luke. This show is going down fast.

WHY AND EXACTLY. GH apparently OPENED THE NEW DOOR TO NEW,
WRITERS… YOUNG, HAVE NO CLUE OF THE LONG HISTORY OF GH and DON’T CARE THEY are RUNNING GH INTO THE GROUND for some disgusting reason. I HATE THAT THEY INSIST ON DRAGGING SONNY IN THE SAME STORYLINE WITH THAT RIDICULOUS NINA COME ON PRODUCERS BEFORE GH GETS CANCELED.

Lucy shouldve been there..her and luke were good freinds..and lucky?? Ethan?? Hello?? Are the writers getting amnesia? These folks shouldvebbeen there!!!!!

There is no sane reason to, out of the blue, to kill Luke off..
What would be a logical purpose to kill off Luke= none.
I do not believe Luke is dead–
To bring Luke into a story, after all these many years,
is asinine..
Luke’s death is a fake-out–

Rule #1 on General Hospital:
If there was no body recovered, then they’re not dead.
Rule #2
Sometimes even if there is a body recovered they’re still not dead.
It’s a clever backdoor the writers use in case the characters or the actors that played them need to come back to a particular storyline. If Anthony Geary ever decides to come back the writers will jump at the opportunity.

Agree with those rules. Luke is not dead at all.

Couldn’t sleep the other night so I watched a few of the old Nurses Ball videos on Utube, mainly Luke Spencer and Bobby Disco dancing. Then way back when he was one of the pips, also some others. I didn’t know this man could dance.

Wow, Violet, you are brave.. watching those Nurses’ Ball episodes without Pepto-Bismol nearby. But I love nostalgia so I may follow your lead. Probably better than those silly prime-time reality shows they’re foisting on us. I loved Chase’s DICK TRACY number from three years ago. Talk about sexy! And my 87 year-old mum loves Lucy’s numerous gown changes. It’s like a Diana Ross concert… some gals really know how to wear clothes properly. That’s one reason I love when Diane Miller is on…Carolyn Hennessey has great style, too.

Soaphound
I honestly just loved some of the previous performers and watch those a lot over the years. I love Kathleen Gatti, especially when she sang Always On My Mind to her kids. Made me cry and my other tear jerker was Sonny and Max singing The Summer Wind. To me that was the most poignant father and son thing, especially Max of course. I loved Bradford Anderson/Spinelli singing to Maxi and the little red head he married. Again, I so enjoyed Dr. O singing GUILTY with Franco and watching Elizabeth’s expression. I really enjoyed Ava singing You Don’t Own Me.
Now, I can go on but I can hear you saying ” oh God, why the hell did I say anything to her?” I adore Carolyn Hennessey and I saw the most interesting and lovely, crazy side of her on Sonny’s show State Of Mind, if you can put up with him a while.

I was disappointed with this memorial for Luke. It could have been so much better. This felt like “oh we need a memorial for Luke ” so throw something together. It came off as hastily written and bringing in all of the side stories like Sonny and Scotty fighting and the discord between Nicholas and Spencer added nothing. Again, it could have been a really good episode.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Drew and Nina Get Physical; Were You Surprised or Did You Expect it to Happen?

On the Tuesday, April 9th episode of General Hospital, Drew (Cameron Mathison) and Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) explosive relationship just turned up the heat another notch.

In story, Nina who was responsible (although she doesn’t see it that way) for Drew being sent to prison for insider trading when she tipped off the SEC, let out her feelings to him about how to get back in the good graces of her daughter, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) and Michael (Chad Duell). In doing so, she asks him for his help with it.

For months, the two have had nothing short of contentious moments, where Drew has not let Nina off the hook for what he did to him, or to his ex Carly (Laura Wright). Fast-forward and when alone in the Crimson office, Nina brings up wanting to stick it to Carly again.

As they banter back and forth, Drew can’t figure out why he should help Nina at all with any of her manipulations. Suddenly, as he tried to exit, his shirt rips and exposes his bare chest and abs, and Nina get quite an eyeful. From there, things become physical and before you know it, Drew and Nina are making out and having their version of hate-sex.

Cameron Mathison spoke to Soap Opera Digest on the shocking turn events, sharing, “I didn’t see it coming at all. I really didn’t. I think the audience did. Cynthia did some appearances and I guess the audience was ‘You and Drew, there’s some sexy chemistry there.’ I was like, ‘Wait, what? Really?’ I didn’t even get it. So I love it that it was very unexpected. The writers saw it, too. And, I love that it’s not a typical way for two people to be … physical. I was gonna say intimate, but there’s not a lot of intimacy there. And then as soon as it’s over, it’s back to arguing and giving each other crap again. It was really cute and really well done.”

As the fallout for their office room romp will air on the Wednesday April 10th episode, just how will the two deal with the fact that they had this fiery passionate moment in the weeks and months ahead? Will this be Nina’s new plot to get at Carly to be seen with her ex? Will Drew and Nina never speak of this again? (Well, this is a soap opera, after all, that’s pretty doubtful), or is this part of a major reset for some of the characters on the canvas now that Patrick Mulcahey and Elizabeth Korte are co-head writing the show?

Speaking on the aftermath of the tryst, Mathison added, “The two of them are both like, all right, let’s forget about that and move on. It’s like a weird kind of aggression attraction. There’s obviously attraction there, but I don’t think either of them expected it, and I think they’re both totally shocked and surprised by it. I think Drew gets a kick out of it whereas Nina is a little embarrassed by it.”

Now let us know, did you see this coming? Did you think Drew and Nina would have sex? What do you think of the story turn? Comment below.

General Hospital’s Asher Antonyzyn Shares, “I Think That If Jason Doesn’t Get Sent Away Again, He and Danny Will Have a Really Great Connection”

It is clear that Danny Morgan (Asher Antonyzyn), as of right now, has the most character traits of his father, Jason Morgan (Steve Burton). When Jason returned to Port Charles and was hiding out at the Quartermaine boat house, viewers saw that Danny wanted to help out his dad as much as he could.

When the two shared a heart-to-heart about Danny’s passions and Jason learned he is turning out to be a sort of adrenaline junkie like himself, the father and son shared a bonding moment.

‘Asher Antonyzyn spoke to Soap Opera Digest about Danny having a lot more to do in story now that Jason is back, and how it has been working with Steve Burton and where he thinks the on-screen relationship can go.

When speaking of how Danny is drawn to adrenaline and danger like his father, Asher expressed: “I can’t keep count of all the times that people say, ‘Danny, he’s just like his dad!’ I think that if Jason doesn’t get sent away again, he and Danny will have a really great connection.”

On his screen-time with Steve Burton, Antonyzyn added,  “When Steve Burton was coming back as Jason, I was like, ‘Since Danny never really had storyline with him, maybe I’ll come back out here a lot more and be able to do that with him.’ And then it happened! So that was pretty cool.”

So, do you hope that Danny and Jason’s connection is explored further? Do you think we will watch Asher grow up and become Jason Morgan 2.0? Comment below.
