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.

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.

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

anne

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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.

Kelly Thiebaud Opens Up on Her Exit from General Hospital, Taping Britt’s Tragic Death Scenes, and Parting Thoughts on Co-Stars

Just a few weeks ago on the January 4th episode of General Hospital, viewers were left devastated when Dr. Britt Westbourne succumbed to a fatal poisoning after a confrontation with ‘The Hook’.

While it was revealed that Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, was exiting the ABC soap opera at the end of 2022, many thought the story would see Britt leaving Port Charles to deal with her declining health due to Huntington’s Disease in private, in order to keep the door open for a possible return down the line.  However, that was not meant to be.  When a report from Deadline surfaced back in August of 2022, it indicated that Kelly was returning to her primetime role on ABC’s Station 19, which caused some confusion and rumors of just what would Thiebaud’s ultimate status be with the daytime drama series.

Now, in a very special exit interview for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Kelly chats with Michael Fairman and clarifies what led to her decision to leave her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne.

Talking with Fairman direct from London, Kelly, who won a Daytime Emmy in 2022 for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, reveals how it came to pass that GH would kill-off the character of Britt by becoming another victim of ‘The Hook’, and more.

During the conversation, Thiebaud shares her thoughts on working with her former GH co-stars including: Steve Burton (ex-Jason), Parry Shen (Brad), Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Cassandra James (Terry), Roger Howarth (Austin) and Josh Kelly (Cody), as well as some of her favorite memories throughout her run on the series which began in 2012.

Kelly took the character from being the manipulative ‘Britch’ as an interloper in the romance of Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), all the way to becoming a well-loved character to root for.

While, GH viewers witnessed Britt’s shocking death scenes, Kelly weighs-in on taping those moments, as well as Britt’s emotional goodbye birthday party, and having the opportunity to portray a character who was trying to navigate her life, while suffering from the effects of Huntington’s Disease.

In addition, Thiebaud gives a very special ‘thank you’ and shout out to the fans for their enduring support as she looks forward to new roles and new adventures ahead.

Denise Crosby Makes a Return to General Hospital

After a major fallout with her parents, Carolyn (Denise Crosby) and Jeff Webber (William R. Moses), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) was devastated, in particular because they concocted a plan to make her forget all about the tragic situation earlier in her life. That being, when Finn’s (Michael Easton) late wife, Reiko, fell down a flight of steps and eventually died after she struggled with Liz.

Apparently, the story is not over, when Denise Crosby reprises her role of Carolyn beginning the week of January 23rd on General Hospital.

Talking about her return in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Crosby previewed, “She (Carolyn) wants to make a connection with her daughter and try to make amends for something that is almost impossible to make amends for. She knows it could go really wrong, but she can’t live with herself if she doesn’t take the shot.”

Something tells us there is more to the story of why Carolyn could have returned to Port Charles? Any thoughts?

Let us know your theories about Elizabeth’s mother upcoming return to Port Charles in the comment section below.
