Geary, Jackson & Parsons Talk Unfinished Business for GH's Spencer Clan & Their Daytime Emmy Noms!

In a great sit-down chat via ABC Soaps In Depth with the three Spencer men of Port Charles; Tony Geary (Luke), Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky) and Nathan Parsons (Ex-Ethan), the Daytime Emmy nominated actors from General Hospital talk about their on and off screen relationships. Plus, helping each other pick their Daytime Emmy reels, which landed each of them in the three main acting categories heading into the Daytime Emmy telecast on HLN on June 23rd!

But perhaps what was most interesting, was the quick banter back and forth between the threesome when they were posed the question, what unfinished business is there for you and your characters that needs to be addressed on GH?   And here is what the talented trio had to say!

Nathan: For Ethan, I think I need to kill Helena. A little bit of revenge.
Tony: Give it up, son. She can’t be killed. As long as there’s a drop of blood to suck, Helena’s immortal.
Nathan: I think Ethan should go on a killing spree, personally. But that’s just me. So, that’s unfinished business. Ethan could just become The Cleaner.
Jonathan: And well, for Lucky, he did leave his kids at Christmas…
Nathan: Jerk!
Jonathan: So, I’d say there is some unfinished business there! And Nathan and I never got to do a con together.
Nathan: I know!
Jonathan: That was the big tragedy for me. Luke, Lucky and Ethan, and Lulu, should have done some big awesome con.

Tony: I agree. That was a major production mistake, and a terrible waste. The whole family was primed for a great adventure together. The audience would have loved it, and it would have been completely consistent with our family history. Sometimes they miss the most obvious story ideas. It’s frustrating.
Nathan: Yeah, we didn’t get to do that; they never went there. And then by the end, Ethan gets offered to go steal diamonds with Luke and he’s like, ‘Oh no, no. I’m good.’

Jonathan: Yes, Lucky would do the same thing, just turn down Luke’s offers to work together.
Nathan: I’m like ‘who is this person?’ That’s not the character I created.
Tony: Luke has profound unfinished business with both his sons. Lucky just disappeared out of his father’s life the same way Luke had done so many times. Things were left very bitterly between them. There is still the ghost of Jake binding them to each other’s pain. It would be wonderful to have reconciliation or some kind of resolution there. And, as for Ethan, Luke sent him away with a big lie to carry. It was such a selfish thing to do, saving his friend’s life (Robert Scorpio) by sacrificing his relationship with his youngest son. There is a lot of unfinished business here. There isn’t one day at I work that I don’t think about having lost both of my sons. It helps me keep in touch with what a broken bird this Luke Spencer is.

So soapers, what would you like to still see happen to the Spencer Clan of Ethan, Lucky, Luke and Lulu?  Let us know!

I hear rumblings that they are working to recast Ethan to cause problems between Luke and Anna and as a possible love interest for Kristina. That stinks, but I think the character was very good for GH.

Sorry Nathan left, but glad to see he found greener pastures.

Is Nathan still under contract? I’d heard he wasn’t going to be renewed.

I want to see Lucky stay far away from Elizabeth. That relationship is toxic.

It is a shame that Luke hasn’t seen his sons. I was never a fan of Ethan being his; I wanted him to be Robert’s kid.

It would be fun to see the whole family do a con but now that Lulu’s married to Dante, I don’t see her getting on board.

Lisa, Nathan was fired from the show and is no longer under contract nor on recurring status with GH! Ethan is GONE! 🙁

Nathan, wasn’t fired from the show. He told the previous regime he was leaving when his contract was up and he did just that. Now that he is on another show, I doubt he will come back. I have no problem with giving Luke another son, but to make Holly the mother is just wrong. She never would have cheated on Robert and the writers totally messed up Robert & Holly along with Luke & Laura history to create Ethan. That is sooooo not what the fans wanted to see! Love all three of these guys and I would love… Read more »

Aww, if and when GH gets the ax, I would like to see Jonathan Jackson come back and reunite his Lucky with Rebecca Herbst’s Liz. I don’t think they are toxix – I think the writing for them has been toxic. Having Liz sleep with Nikolas was just dreadful. They can fix them and have them ride off into the sunset together. After all, they share Cameron plus they are the bio parents of Aidan.

I would surely love to see the “Spencer Clan” in a con of some sorts. and it’s true what they are saying, they writers surely missed that boat !! I could see them coming back, Eathan ( he’s just keeping Robet busy ) as for Lucky, well his last scene was him looking up at someone at the church or grave site. Always wondered who that was? as for Lulu, being her charector did a shift, I can see her totally being on board with what her family does. Who knows maybe they can be to ones to solve this… Read more »

I refused to believe that Ethan is Luke’s. That was such a slap in the face to R&H fans.

The whole Spencer family being part of a con would be a great use of history and showcase the talents of my favorite family on GH. I wish Jonathan and Nathan the best in their new projects, but it will always be my wish to have the original Spencer boys back.

I could care less about Luke, Nathan, or Lucky. GH really hit an all time low by destroying the characters of Robert and Holly in order to make Luke Spencer once again the hero. Pairing Luke and Anna is downright ridiculous to me. I am sick of Anna and Luke. Robert and Holly should be given a story and reunited! Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms both look great. Emma is still as beautiful and sexy as she was in her heyday, and Tristan is still extremely sexy. Let us see this couple have a believable storyline.

The unfinished business is to undo the damage to GH’s first two super couples and say the CON is that Luke and Holly lied about cheating on their spouses. Ethan is Robert’s son.

Back in the day, Luke was not known to be a con artist, it was only after Holly came along when Luke’s character changed. actually (cousin) Bill was more of the con. Luke was all about Power and prestige and thriving on the danger.

Also Bobbie is totally needed, and is a missing void. It used to Bobbie and Luke was her Tonto. I would like to see Bobbie involved.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
