GENERAL HOSPITAL: Dante Takes A Tumble, Fluke Becomes Unhinged, Bombs Are Set!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, it looks like Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) will be spending a lot of time, or whatever time he has left with his MIA father-in-law Luke Spencer (Tony Geary)!

After taking a horrific fall down the flight of stairs to the basement courtesy of Fluke, and where Luke has been help captive, Luke is shocked to see that first Dante made down the basement, but after his tumble, Fluke mercilessly knocked him out cold! And thus Fluke, who has slowly but surely become more unhinged, unveils his plot to Luke that all of his loved ones are going to die tonight at the party at the Haunted Star.

Fluke admits Dante was sniffing around Bill Eckert’s grave and it was empty, to which Luke shouts at his imposter to finally admit that he is actually Bill Eckert, but Fluke instead gives us another creepy and chilling look.  Is this doppelganger under mind control from Helena (Constance Towers)?  What is the vendetta stemming from?  In a juxtaposed scene, we see Tracy (Jane Elliot) and Michael (Chad Duell) talking about Bill Eckert. Tracy recalls Bill always had an edge and always came out to the short end of things all through his life, and took a bullet meant for Luke via Frank Smith and his crime clan!

At the end of the episode, Fluke now dressed in a tuxedo reveals that he also has plans for Luke and Dante, and he takes a bomb and puts in Luke’s lap and it is set to explode!  Luke is horrified as Fluke leaves to go to the party!

Meanwhile, after planting the bomb on the Haunted Star courtesy of Helena, Jake (Billy Miller) is arrested by Nathan (Ryan Paevey) after a tip from Carly (Laura Wright)! And the prison break came to fruition and worked leaving Madeline (Donna Mills) in the dust as Julian (William deVry), Sonny (Maurice Benard), Franco (Roger Howarth) and Ava (Maura West) escaped!

Whether you love or hate, Fluke, Puke, Luke, whatever you want to call the character, this has truly been a showcase for the extraordinary talents of seven-time Daytime Emmy winner, Anthony Geary.  When all is said in done, its hard not to believe his eighth one is about to be added to his record-breaking collection!

So, what have you thoughts of  Tony Geary’s performances? And, for our update on your thoughts on “Who is Fluke?” here are some of the theories our there:  Do you think it’s really Bill Eckert? A Cassadine?  Patricia?  Damien Smith?  Anthony Zacchara ? Someone else?  Will Dante save the day for Luke?  Comment below as it looks like the storyline is finally, finally, set to blow wide open … literally!

It reminded me of the scene in MISERY where the sheriff is standing at the top of the stairs and is just about to find James Caan’s character in the cellar, but Kathy Bates shoots him at the top of the stairs. In other words, you knew it was too good to be true that the victim would be rescued and then …

RC has us guessing, and that is good.. and- rare ! We always know ”’who”’ because we are soap experts and we just know lol, but not this time.. Tony was leaving GH.. He said his character had become stale/go nowhere and it was time for him to go.. RC and FV wished him well, etc.. Then 4 days before he was to exit RC presented Tony with this story..

As I said on another post…I think they might change the history. Luke was really shot all those years ago and Bill Eckert has been living his life all these years…either purposely or because he was brainwashed into believing he really is Luke. Meantime, The real Luke had gone crazy, escaped from witness protection or wherever he was all these years…and has come back to take revenge and claim what he feels should have been his. To top it off…TG indicated he wanted his run on the show to go out in a blaze…perhaps he’ll die in the explosion and… Read more »

My question for RC would be did you always intend for it to be Luke or not? I think if he was honest their were a lot of rewrites because of TG’s health issues. I do believe however with others this will be TG’s exit storyline. I mean really where do you go from here now?

Maybe Luke has DID and actually he is Luke AND Fluke. Tied-up Luke is a figment of his messed up mind. Whatever they come up with, it’ll probably be anti-climactic. I’m just glad I can watch today because Brad and Lucas have their clothes on now. That was gross!

To whom are you speaking, Katie? I cannot see any comment which I find offensive. I think you might mean the Richard Simmons comment and if so remember: 1. When Sharon wrote that comment it had not yet been revealed that there was a dead body, possibly Bill Eckert’s in that chair. And 2. Richard Simmons has been a guest star on GH on and off for the last thirty years.
It was just a harmless little joke–no harm, no foul.

I hope there is a good story on the horizon for Lucas and Brad, and I am straight woman and I luv the couple ..

I don’t buy Carly going to the Police. Since when? That is not how Carly does things, ever. Sure Jason isn’t around and neither is Sonny, but then she would have gone to Shawn. And considering the circumstances, what about Sam? Of course it’s just a plot point to get Nathan involved so he can help save the day, which is annoying on its own, but another example of characters acting OOC to move along the plot, which in this case involves another way to prop Nathan.

Really over the Fluke storyline. As endless as B&B’s love triangles. Really hope the endgame might be salvation and reconciliation and reunion of the Spencer family. They seem so disjointed and disconnected. What happened to the joy with these crazy capers?

Maybe Fluke is the sister Patricia they
keep talking about? Apparently they didn’t
Talk about her for a reason. Maybe she
Had plastic surgery over the years to perfect
Her “Luke” face/body and took Bill’s body
To talk to it or put it in a place she felt more
Appropriate for Bill to be buried. Fluke hates
The family and maybe Patricia had a close
Relationship with Bill and is paying them all
Back. Who knows – just a theory.

This show is such a joke, and not a funny one. Bill was not the evil pig RE-Ron has tried to write. Maybe we will be lucky and the whole show will blow up, and ABC can just start over. Dante at the foot of the stairs done in by a man old enough to be his grandfather. A cop who tells all the evidence. FrankenRon are exactly like Guza. No respect for the law.

His vision is impaired by the blow on his head, so he has not really focused…he probably thinks he’s seeing things.
Are we sure this is Bill’s cadaver?
You’re right….no originality. Sonny doesn’t even come close to ” il padrino”.
Regardless, I am interested to see what happens.

I’m always usually loving Heather, and was hoping for her to pull a knife out of that knitting bag in the Nina scene. She always manages to have a big knife, especially when it came to Carly. That knife is her character’s gestus. Well, I’m loving the scenes between Nina and Heather. Michelle and Robin work very well together…just saying.

I love Heather also. For some inexplicable reason, her devilishly wicked being cracks me up; not at all scary. She is like a Tasmanian devil…here, there and everywhere.
When she was painting Nina’s fingernails, for a minute there, I thought Heather was using blood instead of polish…LOL.
the ‘sprinkling’ of the concoction spilling on the cell floor was a ‘fittingly nice’ touch !!

I’m really enjoying the progression of this Jake/Jason story. Even thought is is airing on the side of ridiculousness and implausibility, it’s moving at a good pace and it makes me feel like Jake’s real identity will be revealed sooner than this whole Fluke/Luke story. Speaking of which, I feel like this is definitely Fluke’s final stand, I can’t see any way the writers can continue the story even longer after this. I’m hoping by the end of February, we’ll know who Fluke is, and if he really is just a figment of Luke’s mind or a real person.

I am tired of the Fluke storyline as well, but Geary is a great actor! I am thinking either the dummified Luke is a figment of Fluke’s imagination OR Fluke did something w/the real Luke …or maybe the real Luke has finally gone insane & that is really Luke (whom we think of as Fluke)…wow… Anyway, I still want to see where all this goes. Also 1) Who is Nathan’s real father!? & 2) What is Rosalie’s secret? How is she really involved? I bet she could be key to all of this.

Jeremy
Guest
Jeremy

yeah, for me, I’m more interested in the secret Rosalie’s got, and how Nina and Helena know all about it. How did they learn her secret…maybe there’s a Nina and Helena connection? I’m more fascinated by the Rosalie character, than Luke/Fluke. Perhaps you’re on to something with her possibly being a key to that storyline, too.

Pat
Guest
Pat

With Rosalie’s connection to Michael, this possibly could be the start of Michael transitioning to the ‘dark side’ -that would be something! It would be understandable because of all the things he has had to endure over the years. The news about Sonny killing AJ put him over the edge. Rosalie could be important to the storyline (depending on who she is/what her secret is…)

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

I doubt the writers know who Nathan’s father is, Pat. They haven’t come up with a plausible sire yet. Remember what Liesl said?…..”someone so much worse than Victor”,….or something to that effect. Rosalie is another puzzle. Again, TPTB neither know where this girl’s place is nor what her ‘real’ function is. JMO. At the moment she’s just a prop to be used later, if need be. If not, they will dispose of her as they did Rafe. Poor kid! She will eventually fade into the background, into oblivion. Also; mummified, (or dummified, as you put it) Luke, has to be… Read more »

Pat
Guest
Pat

Yeah- definitely miss poor Rafe. The kid had potential. I think they did away w/him too fast. Scenes btwn Heather & Nina are great. Heather looks like a cat about to swallow her Nina-canary…lol! As for Nathan’s dad…someone worse than Victor-? Was thinking maybe Faison, but then that would be kind of obvious & Liesl would’ve told Faison he had a son (since he dissed the Britch.) But I was thinking Nathan’s parentage may be Jerry Jax …or maybe even Robert(?) if Liesl said it’s “worse” -she probably meant worse for HER.

Jeremy
Guest
Jeremy

@ CeeCee – I hope Rosalie comes back into the fold full speed. I can’t recall the actress’s name, however…she’s really great. She was very effectively in the introduction of Nina. I’m hoping the revelation of her secret isn’t another dragged out story. Rosalie is great addition to GH, it’s time they focus back to her and showcase this talented actress.

@CeeCee….You may be rambling due to a baby all-nighter, but I suspect you could still concoct a more cohesive and logical scenario than this convoluted Fluke caper to which we have been held hostage for far too long. That rotted corpse tied to the chair on Friday’s cliffhanger was one gross insult to the viewers too many….when it was previously mentioned here, I simply took it as a longshot theory, since everyone was trying their mightiest to come up with the most creative interpretation to the puzzling personage of Fluke, and how his maniacal miscreant had materialized.

I did when I saw todays show! My clue was the conversations between the two Luke’s how would Bill Eckert know all this bad history concerning Luke and Bobbie’s family and then the constant references to the smell then the digging up of the grave and the chair and finally the Luke we all know would let someone keep him tied to a chair. Not a Chance!!!

You need to watch and have your own opinion and not someone elses to know about anything that is happening 🙂

Luke talks to a chair? Does that mean Fluke is really Clint Eastwood? Seriously, of course I think Tony Geary is genius. He could read the Yellow Pages and make it riveting. However, given the quality of the writing, I think I’d rather hear him read The Yellow Pages. Yesterday Traci told Michael that Luke became involved with the mob and Frank Smith the day Bill Eckert was shot in 94. Any GH viewer, even those who did not watch in the day, know that Luke worked for Frank Smith since 1979. This is GH History 101. Then Traci tells… Read more »

Sue, no, you seem to not understand. Traci’s dialogue completely rewrote GH’s history. I realize you are a new viewer but even new viewers know that Luke was involved with the mob and Frank Smith at least fifteen years before Bill Eckert was gunned down in a case of mistaken identity. And no, Sonny did not arrive in town as Frank Smith’s henchman because he worked for Joe Scully. And no again, Sonny was not responsible for ruining Luke’s life. All of the aforementioned was wrong.

I didn’t see the scene with Tracy and Michael, but Sonny did work for Frank Smith. Perhaps “re”-immersing Luke in the mob and “re-“ntroducing him to Frank would be more accurate. From “General Hospital: The Complete Scrapbook,” in 1993: “Arranging to meet with Luke through Luke’s sister Bobbie, Damian informed Luke that his father, Frank Smith, would guarantee the Spencer family’s safety if Luke would help smuggle certain people into the country for Frank. Luke’s liaison with Frank would be Sonny Corinthos, who became Frank’s front man in Port Charles after his strip joint had closed. Luke agreed.” I remember… Read more »

harry
Guest

That’s a huge stretch Erick. It may have been a six degree of separation kind of deal which doesn’t explain the huge obsessional hatred Fluke harbors for Sonny.
And Sonny had nothing to do with the murder of Bill Eckert. Traci clearly said the day Bill was killed was when Luke first became involved in the mob. It didn’t transpire that way under that time line at all.

@ the substitute – yeah even Jane knows, and sees that the writing is all over the place, there’s usually not that much consistency. As much as GH leads the pack with an ensemble to die for, however, the writing on a whole is average, it’s highly over ambitious. Days of our Lives succeeds as they really know how to write effective and consistent stories.

I don’t find Geary’s acting Emmy-worthy at all here. No offense to the actor, who’s giving it his all. But to me, Emmy-caliber acting involves using real emotion and reacting with and portraying the real, deep, difficult emotions: Fear, pain, etc. This is chewing the scenery — it’s not really meant to be believable on any level — and Geary’s highly entertaining while he does it. But Emmy-worthy? No.

Jeremy

I hear what you’re saying, and I’m sure GH, or AG will submit himself for Lead Actor. And, I think Roger Howarth is a viable candidate that will also be included in the submission. I’m not a Franco fan, but I do believe Roger will also be pre-nominated alongside AG.

You don’t think Geary’s showing fear and pain as the imprisoned, tortured Luke? If he showed any more I’d be calling my local police dept to save him! The man has shown nothing but pure, unadulterated emotion in both roles…complete tour de force.

The only prob with the DID theory is that whoever fluke is showed himself to Julian years ago and offered him a new life as derek wells; Luke isn’t rich, doesn’t have that kind of power and even if he did would mean he has had DID for years; none of this makes sense

And, what’s Ivy’s deal? She appears at NYE, to be Sloane’s date, but instead she’s “taken” by Prince Nicholas and becomes his date. And, nearly four weeks later, and she re-appears in today’s episode with Nicholas. I feel like maybe she’s in on it with Helena? All of a sudden Nicholas is seeing Ivy? I’m waiting for a secret meeting with Ivy and Helena, their “introduction” today…was mysterious. Is she a plant, to keep Nicholas in line? On NYE she goes from a date with Sloane, then dumps him on the spot for Nicholas? Hmmm.

Wow! Who’s in the chair? Why would it be Bill Eckert’s dead body? Who is Fluke? Does Helena know Fluke’s been talking to a dead body in the basement?

I think (though I’m ready for this to end) that this is a great story. We’re all still guessing. We don’t know.

Also–everyone assumed Sonny & Julian were going to ride to the rescue. But now what? Will the bomb go off? Will some people die?

Does Johnny know Fluke’s planted a bomb?

I cannot wait until Monday!

If it turns out to be bill echert it will be a bit of a let down, but the fact that people are still guessing is some good writing and Tony geary’s selling a variety of possibilities. and no soap has every had effective cops (think of how often mitch lawrence reappeared on one life to live, or billy what’s his face on amc,–) and helena’s mind control has been a theme since lucky–if a gal’s got skills let ‘er use ’em

I may be one of the few, but I have enjoyed every aspect of this storyline from the get-go. And Tony Geary, as usual, has blown me away. I think Ron Carlivati has done an excellent piece of story telling with many twists and turns. My hats are off to the both of them!

Well said, Beth. I couldn’t agree more. Lots of people complaining, as usual. I’m one of those people that, like you, has enjoyed every twist and turn of this wild roller coaster of a storyline. Tony Geary should have an 8th Emmy statue on his mantle when this is all said and done. Exceptional performance from him, as always! Can’t wait to see what happens next.

Agreed – it has been well played and written every step of the way. Great example of umbrella storytelling that involves most of the cast.

What I have really liked is the forced comradiere of Sonny and Julian in Pentonville. Add Franco, and now Ava, it’s been funny seeing them “work together,” especially in the van. Then they have to ruin it with the d*mn, overused car crash! Guess that’s the only way they can get them into GH, since that’s the name of the show. At least, for a little variety, it didn’t seem to be on the same dark road where the crashes usually occur.

I actually enjoyed the banter in the van among the jailbirds. The exchange between Franco and Ava, with a little bit of Sonny, was classic. I actually thought I saw a hint of a smile on Sonny’s expression…as if he were trying to hold back his amusement…his laughter. I think he was getting a kick out of it. I like that.

BRAVO BRAVO!!! Tony!
Tony gave us his performance of a life time..
His wish granted– to once again be a bad guy, a real bad guy..
Tony is always at his best being the dark one..
How awesome RC & FV gave Tony an exit story where he could be the good and the evile…
He will be happy to leave this as his last great performance before he retires in Amsterdam..
Tony gave a good part of his life to General Hospital..
(( people show respect (you know who you are grumpy whiners)

@ CeeCee – it was indeed fun. I watched it twice. It’s nice to see Sonny with a little bit of a sense of humor. I read the interview with him from last month how Maurice was incorporating some humor, here and there in the prison scenes, to feed off of Roger Howarth. Good call. Nice to see Sonny a little bit more free. It’s working.

CeeCee…I really liked it for the same reasons. Wish there was no crash so we could have had more of the “banter” while they drove to The Haunted Star to save the day, and thus redeem themselves, resulting in lighter/suspended sentences with community service at the new Clinic. Wish they would have kept Madeline in the loop. When else would you have all of them “in the same room” again when they weren’t trying to kill each other.

Yes, CeeCee!…I’m with you that Madeline would have made a fabulous addition to the “Pentonville Posse” escape escapade.I suppose being on the lam didn’t appeal to this high-maintenance socialite since it would’ve wreaked havoc with her impeccably immaculate hair, nails and maquillage! (As if donning that tacky orange jumpsuit weren’t enough of an indignity for this usually impossibly soignee standard of sartorial splendor!)

Fluke getting a award for boring us with this dragged out story. GH fans should get an award for trying to be patient with Fluke. It wasn’t General hospital it was a one man show. I’d always end up forwarding his scenes.

suzanna lol
there are many other stories going on besides Luke/Fluke, many..
Ava’s, Sonny’s. Jake’s, Maxie, Sam/Patrick’s, and the long list goes on..
It is your own fault if you chose to only watch the Luke/Fluke story and none of the other stories 🙂

@Rose…The “Pentonville Posse’s” escape definitely provided some welcome comic relief, although I would have liked to see Franco tossed to the side of the road once he surrendered his cellphone to Sonny. Not because I don’t enjoy RoHo….I simply would like to see him delayed in arriving at the loony bin to save “Phyllina” from Heather’s crazy clutches. As far as I’m concerned, Ms. Webber would be performing a public service if she knocked off the “Cray Clay” from the GH canvas! But I’m with you about the vehicle crash being too formulaic and predictable….oh well, it was fun while… Read more »

I swear when I watch Anthony acting as two characters in the basement I forget its the same actor. Say what you want about this story, Anthony Geary is sailing off into the sunset with his eighth and final Emmy. What a career!

A classic GH cliffhanger on Friday’s episode. I loved it! Can’t wait to find out what happens on Monday. That’s when you know you’re in the middle of a good story. At least I think so, anyway. I get the complaints about the story going on too long, but that’s water under the bridge at this point, and they do seem to be getting very close to a conclusion. I’m enjoying being on this wild and crazy ride. I watch GH for an escape from real life, I don’t want it to be like real life. So the wild and… Read more »

I like the idea of the real Luke having been brainwashed and now totally unhinged being the Fluke, (which is a word I’ll assume we know can mean serendipity or a twist of fate) all the while talking to a decomposed Bill Eckert who sits in a chair (a la Psycho). What lends some credence to the scenario is that Helena would not be able to resist visiting the real Luke in that basement while he was being held captive and tortured; and if my memory holds true, I don’t think she has once stepped foot down there. She doesn’t… Read more »

If it turns out that Luke is himself and conditioned by Helena, I think that storyline is an insult to viewers. There is no way that Luke could have been conditioned for years. Why would he and Laura have saved Lulu from Stavros. Why would Helena poison him with plutonium if she had been conditioning him. Folks, this is why I have to watch vintage episodes of ONE LIFE TO LIVE. I keep trying to like GH but failing. No real characters to root for. Bring back Robert, Laura and have some storylines for Mac and Felecia, etc. It’s not… Read more »

Heather and Nina: Although I am thoroughly enjoying the scenes between Heather and Nina and LOVE the fact that “Diana Taylor” was mentioned in the script, the writers made a mistake when Heather explained her association with Diana Taylor. Georgianne LaPierre (Cher’s sister) played the first Heather, and Valerie Starrett played the original Diana Taylor. When Heather (and Jeff Weber’s) baby was sold and Diana ended up adopting him, she and her husband Peter Taylor (Craig Huebing) named the boy Peter, Jr. (“PJ” for short), NOT “Steven Lars,” as Heather stated in this episode. Heather is the one who always… Read more »

hi sandra,
there are many other stories taking place, also..
Nothing in this story has been ”over and over again” lol
Fluke story is at its end and many other stories have already started,,
Anna’s firing, Jake’s identity, Patrick and Sam, Sonny and Julian, Johnny Z and Lulu, Franco and Nina and Heather, Brad and Lucas, Ava and her baby, the free clinic will open and Sabrina and Carlos will get hot, Jordan and Shawn, and the list of ”’other”’ stories ”now” in progress will move upfront..
All through the Luke and fluke story there have been ”many other stories” taking place, also.. 🙂

On a Fluke (couldn’t help myself), I googled Anthony and read an interview he did withTV Guide, June 2014. Lots of discussion on the then upcoming Fluke story, and his discussions with Ron about the idea for a story that would really interest Tony…he was getting bored playing the same old Luke character for so many years. He did make on cryptic comment…”It’s gotta be Luke who takes him (Fluke) down.” If you haven’t seen it, it’s an interesting read. Also, for the comments. Like our comments, yeas and nays re Tony/Fluke, but lots to say about Laura/Genie, much of… Read more »

Hi Rose..
I also read that interview..
I was mostly shocked when Tony said he quit GH and Amsterdam was waiting, so to say..
He was about 4 days from leaving when FV and RC gave him the Luke Fluke story and Tony was very excited to do it!! and he stayed on with GH..
but I do believe he will now retire 🙁

There may many opinions on the Fluke story, but I think Tony has really made the most of his role(s). So if he is really leaving, what a way to go for an actor. And best of luck and health to him for his future.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alex Is ‘Wicked’ To Anna; Franco Receives Devastating Diagnosis

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it a clever play on the Broadway smash hit musical, Wicked, but no there was no singing, instead we had the always brilliant Finola Hughes, playing the good witch and the bad witch, in the form of portraying twin sisters, Anna and Alex as Halloween night comes to Port Charles.

In story, Anna, who is dressed for Halloween in white as a good witch, reads the report in front of Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that proves that Faison did not have the marker for RA (rheumatoid arthritis) which then proves that since she did not have it, nor Faison, that Alex is the biological mother of Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

All this time, as Anna says, she blamed herself for being with Faison only to find out that was a complete lie.  Anna becomes so incensed by all of Alex’s machinations that she smashes a glass just as the power goes out.  Valentin tells Anna he was also used by her sister where Peter was concerned.  Anna questions whether she should warn Peter, that Alex might be after him and his unborn child with Maxie (Kirsten Storms).  Valentin is convinced they need to get rid of Alex, before she does something to them.

 

Anna does decide Peter should show know the truth, as Valentin leaves to find out Alex’s whereabouts.  When the lights come back on at Anna’s, she is clubbed over the head by Alex who is dressed in black as a bad witch. Later, when kids come to trick-or-treat at Anna’s, she has switched places with her sister offering the kid’s candy after stashing Anna away in the basement and most-likely locking her in there.

Peter is in a whole heap of trouble as he keeps getting creepy phone calls from Helena saying they have “unfinished business”.  We later see a trap is being set by Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) and Sam (Kelly Monaco) in a secret location.  Sam is using a voice-alternating ‘Pro Tools’ like audio software program to simulate Helena’s voice to spook Peter and to set him up!

Back at the hospital, Terry (Cassandra James) delivers terrible news to Franco (Roger Howarth). His test results show he has a malignant tumor again on the front lobe of his brain, and that it is inoperable and cannot be removed through surgery.  She tells him she wants to run more tests to see what options they have.

When she asks Franco if he has developed any symptoms, he flashes back to the night at Wyndemere when Ava’s (Maura West) painting was revealed and ruined with C077x spray-painted across it and a haunting dream he had, but denies to Terry that he has had any problems as of now.  When she tells him they need to tell Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Franco says he does not want to tell her, or the boys, about this.  When Liz enters the room, Terry and Franco keep mum as to his condition, for now.

Roger Howarth showed once again why he can always be counted on to bring poignant moments to his scenes as Franco.  Be on the lookout for what happens with this story.  In a November sweeps preview in the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, GH head writers, Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor teased about the medical crisis that it “may hold the key to unlocking one of the biggest mysteries in Port Charles – something that has been in the works for years.”

So, what did you think will happen next in the Anna/Alex saga?  What do you think will ultimately happen to Franco? Will he become the ‘killer’ Franco again? What could be the mystery the co-head writers are referring to? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

General Hospital To Air Special Election Episode In Honor of the Passing of the 19th Amendment & Women’s Right To Vote

On the Monday, November 2nd episode of General Hospital, just before election day here in the United States, the ABC daytime drama is airing a very special episode depicting and remembering the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution.

The inspiring female cast will go back in time as Laura Wright takes on the role of Beatrice Eckert, a suffragist, who is more than ever, determined to get women to exercise their right to vote.

Key to the episode are Eden McCoy (Josslyn) and Sydney Miykala (Trina).  In the story, it marks Josslyn’s first time to be able to vote now that she has turned 18. At first, she isn’t very motivated to vote, but when she and Trina find themselves traveling back in time to 1920, things take a turn as Josslyn realizes just how important it is to exercise her right to have her voice heard and vote, as those women before her fought for their rights.

In the all female directed, written episode, also look for actresses: Maura West, Nancy Lee Grahn, Finola Hughes, Rebecca Herbst, Nicole Briana Henry, Brook Kerr, and more of the female cast to be on-screen.

The episode’s key messaging, “Voting isn’t just a right.. it’s a privilege.”   All that to say, remember, to get on vote come Tuesday.

Watch the promo below.

Emme Rylan Addresses Reports Of Her Exit From General Hospital & Update On Plans With Family

Several hours ago, Emme Rylan (Lulu) of General Hospital took to her Instagram story to talk directly to her followers, friends and fans about her rumored exit on the ABC daytime drama series, and to share some changes in where she and her family will be living.

At that time, Emme updated everyone that since the landlord sold the house she has been living in with partner Don Money and their three children, that they had not found a suitable home for them to live, in Los Angeles, after their extensive search.  So for now they were going to put their things in storage and go on an extended road trip with the entire family in tow … in a car… under Covid-19 safety protocols with her kids still distance-learning, and that she would be documenting the trip on her Instagram account,

After she shared her original update, she later went back to her Instagram story to clarify her earlier statements after many fans were following up with her asking her even more questions.

 

Rylan shared:  “I am getting a lot of questions that I cannot answer …  people are kind of being confused that maybe I chose to take a vacation or take time-off,  so the only thing I can say is “no, I did not choose this.”  I can’t say anything else.  There you go.   That’s all I am allowed to say.   So, this trip is us taking an unexpected turn of events and turning it into something positive and fun for our family. ”

Earlier on her IG story, Emme addressed the reports of her exit from Port Charles explaining: “I am not in a position to be able to comment on the work stuff, so in terms of General Hospital, I am going to keep that topic quiet. All you need to know is that I love everyone there, we all love each other, I’m okay, and all of your messages of love are amazing … I love you guys so much — but I just can’t talk about it. ”

Then as to her plans with her family she shared: “We, meaning my family and I, have decided to do something completely insane. I have never done anything like this in my entire adult life. We are currently packing up our entire house and putting it in a pod and putting it in storage here in Los Angeles, and with only our suitcases, we are going to go on a Covid-safe, epic road trip.  I have been working every single day, Monday through Friday on a soap opera since 2004?  I have only been in New York and L.A, and I have never really explored life outside of this bubble.”

So, what do you think about what Emme shared with her fans and followers? Comment below.
