GENERAL HOSPITAL: Dante's Mind-Bending Discovery In The Chair!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Straight out of a horror film and classic GH under the Cartini regime, the Friday cliffhanger of General Hospital left fans of the ABC daytime drama with more questions then answers!

Did viewers inch closer to finding out just who is the man known as Fluke?  Or, did the cliffhanger set us on the course to figuring out just what is going on with Luke? (Anthony Geary)  In the episode’s final moments, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) comes to after being clubbed in the head, and after falling down the flight of stairs to the basement courtesy of Fluke in the condemned house! Dante finally gets himself almost up on two feet to get to his father-in-law Luke, who he suspected was in grave danger and being held against his will, by the evil imposter Fluke! But, when Dante finally make it over to the chair … he doesn’t see Luke, but a skeleton with stringy white hair and a bomb sitting in its lap!

Prior to this, viewers had seen that Fluke left a bomb in the same chair in Luke’s lap! But there is no Luke, but still the bomb!  Meanwhile, Fluke is mingling with the guests at the Haunted Star as he hopes soon the bomb that Jake (Billy Miller) planted will blow everyone that Luke cares about to smithereens!

So, what is going on here?  Are Luke and Fluke the same person?  Does Luke have a split personality?  Was Luke drugged so bad at Miscavige he is hallucinating this entire thing?  Is Bill Eckert actually alive, and Luke was shuttled somewhere else for more of his master plan, and thus Dante’s life will hang in the balance all by himself?  Was that Bill Eckert’s decomposed body sitting up in the chair, so he is actually truly dead? Are you confused after the end of Friday’s episode …  or more clear?  Watch the final moments of the cliffhanger after the jump, and then share your updated theories in the comment section below!

Holy crap! What a Friday cliffhanger. No one tops GENERAL HOSPITAL.

The best part of Friday’s episode for me was Sam’s suspicions about Jake being proved correct in an official capacity, at the police station. And, Carly apologizing! Holy crap, indeed! Has that EVER happened?

Patrick
Patrick

i’m not digging that Sam the ultimate gumshoe and Carly in all his business… are forefront… because the rest of the cast is in pentonville… or wherever

this isn’t doing anything for either character with regard to moving on and with… and creating happenstance with “nuJason”

OK : I don’t want either or with BM’ jake or jason

if all this meandering here and there is : there is no chemistry happening yet?

I see “jake doe” with Liz.

he’s so good with Helena…

it’s time for him to get familial

move on with mom Monica
aunt Tracy
and cousin Ned

and working at the hosp with Dr. Drake…. sessions with Kevin… and … “action” the intent of the underworld… for mystique and whet

Carly apologizing…

I’ve dissed her for so long now… plus all the writing

but… I will give due and prop

for Carly to be sidestepping… “backtracking” to the mob… and backwarding herself… is what’s intriguing…

no more… crying and fretting about her sons…. about Franco…

she’s layering… perhaps what Sarah Brown and Tamara Braun did with Carly

FINALLY ! At LONG last… Laura Wright… is ACTING herself !

I don’t like this twist that she outed and broke the mob creed.. you don’t turn your own IN

what ??? her conscience ??? give me an expletive break… this is nothing more than pandering to her character showcasing…

let’s see Carly go full throttle for the mob… her lover is gone… her kids don’t respect or want to be around her… she can’t keep a man… just find some avenues for reason to delve in to Carly…. she’s so flatline.. I want for LW’ CARLY to top shelve

and Carlos comes to her rescue as she’s so lost

as i’ve already posted… Let Carly become embittered.. and fast track her fast personality… let loose… without sonny and sons… and wreak havoc… at the metro court.. and any one else who’ll bear up

Dante finds his phone and doesn’t call for help? That is not good police work.

Awww, shucks, Michaelfan. Dante didn’t have the energy to make his finger…one digit….push a button….already programmed, as a cop, into the phone. LOL.

Yes I am totally confused, idk what to think, where is Luke?!

su0000
su0000

yes!
and not knowing, is awesome.. ((not knowing never happens this is rare!)
when is the last time a story, a soap story, has kept ALL wondering and detecting, who is it for 6 months..
this story has rocked! It kept us all on edge with questions we have tried to answer, and may failed, and it’s been great! exciting and fun !!

Your right su0000, in this day and age it is nice not to know. EVERYTHING is spoiled by Twitter. I love the story and enjoy all the twists.

“…not knowing never happens this is rare!”

i’d marquee this

woah

I like the inference that Luke is dreaming this all up… and talking to himself…

what an AG show

su0000
su0000

wow
This is awesome FUN!!! .. I’m luvin it !
Tony .. I bow to you! perfect performance in every way !
RC and team.. thanks for the bumpy ride !!!

I still do not believe that Bill is Fluke, nope..

I once read;
RC as a child and through his life was a huge mystery buff..
He has read every Agatha Christie and all mystery books in kind, he luvs that stuff and it shows in his writing.. Always the surprise as to the whodunit in the end ..

I can not wait for the surprises to come on Monday and following episodes of this story..
Rc and team gave it all to give Tony his last great hurrah !!
(and Tony giving a good part of his life to GH deserves it !!)

KansasGuest

Fellow Agatha Christie fan here! BTW, being completely overlooked by the whole basement reveal in Friday’s episode is the hilarious Clown Car of Evil sequence, with Sonny, Julian, Ava & Franco. Sonny looked like he was seriously thinking about going back to prison to get away from Franco & Ava. The only sequence that could top that would be putting Helena, Faison, Dr. O & Jerry Jacks on the Orient Express with Luke, Robert, Anna & Holly in hot pursuit.

Anne
Anne

ha ha lmao, clown car, how hilarious. to me the whole situation reminded me of dad turning around and telling the kids to behave or he would stop the car and spank them! and Ava calling Franco b_tch was classic. he gets the best lines….

Maura West is fabulous, she deserves Lead Actress daytime emmy, already. She’s had quite the year…and she’s still at it! 🙂
I too, loved how she delivered the B*itch line, right back to Franco.

The car scene was not overlooked, KansaGuest. A few of us did discuss the hilarity of it…LOL

nananes
nananes

Well, it certainly isn’t any clearer! I do know that Dante is not hallucinating or imagining things from the fall and the whack to his head…but I don’t know if there is Fluke AND Luke or if they are a manifestations of a split personality. If that’s the answer, there are a lot of holes in the storytelling, and that would a shame for viewers who have been invested in this story for over a year. I hope we get a worthy payoff!

su0000
su0000

hi nananes,
The story is not over, not yet..
….. all will be revealed….. Questions answered… wait for it .(soon)

It is involved and I believe all connected to the Cassadine lab of horrors, wherein peoples are transformed..
((some silly people think D.I.D.. ahaaaa .. it is soooo much more than that, this by the hands of the Cassadines.. hold tight! we’re in for some big bumps!!
— I love it! It is one helluva suspenseful mystery !!! — whodunnit !?

Mimi
Mimi

Ah, but then the beginning of the story unravels. Julian has said he met “Luke’ i witness protection, meaning this has been happening for a long time. Has “Luke” been “transformed” this WHOLE time? 15-20 years? If so, why did Helena try to kill/poison him as late as 2 years ago?
I believe the story was one thing, then turned into another when TG went away for so long. Now, it’s all catch up an trying to tie things in together that don’t fit. Hence, the Tracy/Michael talk that totally rewrote ALL of the mobular history involving Luke.

su0000
su0000

Mimi-
Julian met the real Luke, back in time..
even Julian believed Luke was the real Luke, until he saw him as the fake Luke..
he did met Luke before the now Fluke ..
..

Mimi
Mimi

BUT! He said that Luke helped him with the new face and got him involved with the whole crime thing again. So, I’m thinking that Luke was DID or psychotic even then, that’s all. I get he met the real Luke!

IT”S SUCH A PUZZLE!!!!!!!! LOL

Erick
Erick

Maybe it’ll be explained that when Luke was gone for months at a clip (for Tony Geary’s vacations) that he wasn’t in Turkish prisons or whatever each time, just for the end of it when it was time for someone to find him. Flimsy I’ll grant you but….

AJQ
AJQ

There is a lot of talk about this being another D.I.D. story from Carlivati. On the one hand, I can’t see that because I think even RC knows he would be a laughing stock to pull that out again and do the dual personality/mental illness thing.

On the other hand, Helena, regarding the basement, said “we both know there’s nothing down there.” Then when Luke asked for a translation, she told him she had the place condemned. Now that doesn’t explain the “Nothing being down there,” it would make sense for her to say don’t worry, Dante will never get down there, I had the place condemned. The condemnation would prevent access, not speak to whether “something” was or wasn’t down there. This is just more inconsistent, contradictory dialogue from bad writers, but if that statement was supposed to mean something, does it mean that it’s all in Luke’s head? Although Luke talking back to Fluke would be in his head, the skeleton would actually be “something” down there.

If that sounds all over the place, it is a reflection of an extremely convoluted and poorly told story. It is not a complex story that is intelligently written and has people guessing, it is just terribly written and a complete mess.

KansasGuest
KansasGuest

If Helena knows that Luke has split personalities, she may not want to upset him by disturbing his version of reality. Or, she may have even altered his reality herself, a la the mind control experiments, to make him think he’s a master criminal impersonating Luke. It’s too twisty for me to think about. So, I’m just going to see where the story goes.

The one thing that still doesn’t fit is Julian Jerome meeting Fluke nearly 15-20 years ago and knowing him for this long.

Renee
Renee

Another thing that does not fit. Fluke has doing his dirty work long before Helena was un-thawed and brought back to life, which was just recently. Luke shot her a few years ago and she was taken to Victors clinic. Victor was forcing Robin to come up with the antidote to bring them back to life safely after being frozen. She could not have brain washed him or had him locked up because she was frozen in Victors Clinic. She was not even back yet. But since Jason was there, she could very well have brain washed him because they were both frozen in the same place. Still, Jason was unthawed 1st so when did Helena get the chance to brain wash him? Probably when he was locked up and she was running free in the clinic.

su0000
su0000

No way in hades is it a D.I.D story..
you are hearing that crapola from the OLTL fans who can not let go..
Helena is involved, as a matter of fact she is the orchestrator..
How could it be D.I.D… sheesh..

And-
the it is a ”mystery” story, a suspenseful mystery story, ..
it suppose to twist and turn and most of all make up think to figure it out..
The story is well written and as it should be, a challenge to minds full of controversy
RC isn’t about to lay it out clear and simple, that is not what it is about 🙂

GH is not a traditional soap…. nothing is as it seems at times..
GH is for special peoples who ”get it” not for everyone .. LOL 🙂

AJQ
AJQ

Su0000 you’ll notice that I said I didn’t think it was a D.I.D story. I then went on to talk about the writing and how convoluted and illogical it was.

The story is far from well written. Helena says “we both know there is nothing in the basement.” When asked to explain that specific thought, she says that she had the building condemned. One thought doesn’t follow the next. The dialogue is illogical, the entire story is being told incoherently. There is a difference between twist and turns and a totally incoherent narrative. That’s what this is and it is typical of the writing on this show. It’s not about special people who “get it,” it’s about whether or not people are willing to ignore nonsense.

Elizabeth
Elizabeth

And now we have Ron tweeting that “Fluke lied” when he told Julian he was in the witness protection program. So RC simply makes the story up as he goes along and when the holes get so big that the story falls through, the head writer simply says that one character lied? I wonder if he has any idea how much negative blowback is ocurring across the message board universe for this terrible, incoherent, unending story. Why does he treat his viewers as though he wants to ridicule them?

Brian
Brian

The blowback comes from the same group of people that complain and write negative things about GH in the comments section of any story having anything to do with GH. The same people that apparently like to waste their time watching a show that they obviously despise, so they can them go online and bitch about it.

The vast majority of the comments I read on various sites across the net, and people I know in my own life that watch GH have liked the story, and don’t analyze every minute detail, and every word of dialogue like it’s the Zapruder Film.

Renee
Renee

GH is for the majority of soap opera fans because thats what keeps them on the air. Not special people who “Get it.” The fact is, many people DO get it and are not liking it. But the writers are doing a pretty good job even if it does not come together or make sense because their ratings are through the roof and better than they have been in years. 😉 Other soaps have went off the air but GH is still there going strong.

Elite Advisors

AJQ,

I would have to suggest that perhaps this may not be the right platform for you as most of us here appreciate a GREAT story with characters we have loved for years. This is daytime drama that is second to none.

FYI…GH has recently been given quite the “nod” for their writing…. perhaps try watching B&B, as that show would give you a good indication of how poorly written and dreadfully BORING some other daytime soaps truly are… love triangle after love triangle…

Your comment ‘The dialogue is illogical, the entire story is being told incoherently’ is not only inaccurate but irresponsible as well. Any story will have its flaws… a few inconsistencies, but we as viewers are certainly smart enough to appreciate this, lighten up, and just enjoy the story!

su0000

hi Elite Advisors..
the Luke/Fluke story has been –
suspenseful, thrilling, exciting, and a very on the edge mystery..

The writing has kept us all guessing throughout the story, that is very rare, if ever that has happened with any soap story outside of this one..
The Luke/Fluke story stands by itself in soap history great..
Throughout the past 6 months we were all wondering and full of theories and guessing, not knowing up until the very end (and that still has not come, but very soon, so we still are not sure) …
It is indeed great writing that had the fans in on going detective controversy over the mystery.

It has been a really EXCITING and FUN ride !!!
A wonderful legacy for Anthony Geary..

You are right-
General hospital is not for everyone, it is more-so of a cult following imo..

GH50
GH50

Elite Advisors- If you are trying to shut down valid discussion and critical thought, perhaps this isn’t the proper platform for you.

Here’s one for you, Ron Carlivati, The Head Writer of General Hospital tweeted to a fan in the last day,

“You’re right. I meant to say that Fluke told Julian he was in witness protection as opposed to Julian knowing it to be true.” –Ron Carlivati

When a writer says, “I meant to say” you are in trouble. Seriously, the Head Writer on a network show saying, “what I meant to say”, regarding a point that is so important to the story. As has happened before, the narrative on this show is extremely incoherent, hole after hole appears and the dialogue contradicts so much. Whether or not Fluke is actually Bill masquerading as Luke, what has been on my screen for some time now has been masquerading as General Hospital.

Why watch?

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

We watch because we can…with only 4 soaps left we want to support the remaining 4 on the air…some of us complain because we want what is best for our soaps…we know they can and should be better…to get the ratings back up and to stay there in order to save them…its our fight to save the genre from total extinction and we will do what we can to get tptb to listen to what the fans want…to save what is left…besides, the last time i looked we our a free country and have the right to express our opinions whether negative or positive and if one likes it or not…please note im writing this in a civil matter and not in a hateful way…peace!!!

B.J.
B.J.

Why watch? I ask myself that every day, because this show really have become something for science fiction fans, which I am not. Half the cast is escaping from jail, and the other half is being tortured by one lunatic or another, or about to be blown up.

At this point, I don’t care who “Fluke” is, or what Helena’s magic tricks are. I just want it over.

Lin
Lin

At this point I agree with you. When this is all over, I think it will be terribly interesting for everyone to meet “back here” at Michael’s page and compare everyone’s knowledge of what has happened in the past on GH and how this story ends up and see if it is a mess, or they have made such a convoluted but true to past facts story. I can’t imagine who this will make sense in the end, but maybe i’m wrong.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Maybe Helene was just being evasive…but otherwise you are correct…the dialogue didnt make sense…i overlooked it the first time and rewatched…whoever wrote that script was carless…so i agree with you there!!!

Renee
Renee

Yes, I was thinking the same exact thing. The script dialogue is so deceptive, that no one really knows what anyone is talking about. As much as I love GH and have since 1970, I am finding it hard to follow a program that makes me feel its in a language I do not understand. So many of the twists and turns have not made any sense for over a year now. I hope it can come together and be explained eventually.

Renee
Renee

PS…Still, the writers are doing a pretty good job even if it does not come together or make sense because their ratings are through the roof and better than they have been in years. 😉 Other soaps have went off the air but GH is still there going strong.

Aden
Aden

You are so right about bad writing. It is obvious that the writers had absolutely no idea where this story would go. They prolonged it with the absurd Fasison/mawk plot point. Masks dont shrink people by 6 inches and change voices. Tony Geary’e unfortunate illness also resulted in the change of story direction.

CeeCee
CeeCee

thank you, Aden…I also said something to that effect.

Jeremy
Jeremy

Hey Aden, yeah that crazy mask crap was fine… as a one time thing, like in the beginning with Faison pretending to be Duke, but then it became the “go to” thing and they went overboard with it. And, with that, so did the writing. I love GH, but not as much as I did in the past. I almost love GH more right now… for the brilliant cast members, and the fine acting team. They keep me watching.

KansasGuest

I think it’s clear that every single conversation Fluke has had w/”Luke” has been in his own mind. Even the ones @ Miscavige. He was never there. He was kidnapped by Heather’s people when he found Carly over a year ago and….something happened. But, as to the Fluke conspiring w/Helena really being Luke, I don’t have any opinions on that yet.

The identity of the corpse is still open to debate. Could be Bill Eckert, Patricia Spencer, Ruby or Luke’s father for all we know! Without definite DNA test results it will continue to be a mystery, as will Luke/Fluke’s real identity. I do want to say that poor Dante’s head suffered serious trauma, being hit while falling down the stairs *and* a brutal bash by Fluke. HE should be seen for a TBI just like Jake/Jason!

Lin
Lin

Didn’t Luke have visitors at Miscaviage?

KansasGuest
KansasGuest

Other than Fluke, he was shown pre-“rescue” with a couple of institute attendants. But, they could also be hallucinations or representations of how his real identity is being held down by his brainwashing.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Maybe Ron C. is a patient at Miscavige and we are seeing this unfold in his mind…the nightmare that never ends!!!…lol…kidding…in spite of everything like the flaws in the storyline and like it seems itll never end im still entertained most of the time…it is the only soap with the most twists and turns…it has its bad moments but its not too bad…sure it could be better but so can many shows…is fluke Luke and the body Bill…could the body be Luke’s or maybe Luke’s father…maybe there is no body at all…maybe Fluke is completely someone else and Luke is still missing…maybe Dante escapes, the house blows up, there is no body found and everyone thinks Dante has lost his mind! Maybe Bill was Patricia after a sex change and the body was Bill/Patricias…this story can go on endlessly…seem like it has already…maybe itll be the end of Luke forever…and TG will always play Fluke and we will never know who Fluke really is, and will make occasional visits to PC to cause trouble the same way Faison has done…just a thought…lol

Lin
Lin

Since TG has said the only reason he didn’t retire is due to the Fluke story line, it is possible that we never see Luke again. Or that Fluke dies as TG does not want to play Luke anymore, he’s tired of playing Luke. and they can say Fluke killed Luke and then Fluke dies in the explosion. Regardless, I can’t see how this is going to make sense in the end.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I agree this could be the end of Luke…guess we just gotta wait and see how it all turns out.

Elizabeth
Elizabeth

Well, TG may go out with Luke’s death in the big ending he was hoping for, but the story itself is so bad that it will go into the book of records for that alone. Can’t envision that was what TG was hoping for. But it IS karmic justice for keeping Genie Francis off the show if it is indeed his swan song.

Jeremy
Jeremy

I’m reading lots of comments about this Fluke/Luke story being Anthony Geary’s ‘swan song’. That is possible, but until I read that he’s officially leaving GH… I feel like it’s just a big assumption.

If, in fact, it is Anthony Geary’s swan song, and he does leave GH…I am all for… re-enter Genie Francis — on-contract!!!!

The substitute
The substitute

Trust me Genie Francis wants no part of TG leaving the show if his ego will allow it. She had her time and legacy and she should be proud of it she helped put the stamp on GH ! Please leave the woman alone she is and has always been gracious let TG do his ego thing it has and always will be all about him. Now he can go back to Amsterdam the old fool he is.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hey, Lin.
Today’s episode hinted on the fact that Helena and Fluke are obviously lovers. At least, that’s what I got out of it. So, if AG is not returning to GH, the only thing left to do is for both Fluke and Helena take a boat from PC’s pier and cruise down to the Underworld via the River Styx….Hades is waiting.
But, as someone already mentioned, the perennial beings of GH, such as the Cassadines, dead and buried, always find their way back to PC……like a bad penny.

Bev A

I loved it!!! There has been (to my knowledge) no other storyline to get this many people talking about it. In fact, they are fighting about it. The writers are doing their jobs perfectly to get so many people to not be able to talk about anything else besides Luke! Kudos to them! I can’t wait to see what next week brings!!

So right!
The Luke/Fluke story is indeed a soap opera sensation!!
It has set GH apart from all other soaps .. It is awesome..
The controversy, the theories and assumptions, the guesses the armchair detectives trying to figure it out/solve the mystery.. BRAVO! RC and team..
(and we still have not solved the mystery !!!!

For a daytime soap story this story is phenomenal ! It has an air of prime time.

))Tony is going to go out in glory !!! ..
it doesn’t get any better than that and what a legacy he will leave behind!!

Lin

Tony has done a fabulous job. Now let’s see if they can tie it together without trampling on what those who have been watching GH for years know for sure is true and past history.

I Think that …it is the corpse of Fluke…and Luke has a double personality….

su0000
su0000

Luke has never been anything close to a double personality in his decades with GH..
Luke is the hands of Helena and the Cassadine lab..
It has nothing to with a D.I.D it is all about -what happened- what was -done- to Luke while he was being held captive by the Cassisine..

I do not think Fluke is Bill or Luke ..

will soon find out .. 🙂

Walter Ian Kaye
Walter Ian Kaye

I agree, Fluke neither Bill nor Luke. Not Bill because that was a misdirect, and not Luke because you can’t “condition” him to kill his loved ones (q.v. Jake).
February sweeps is gonna be FUN!

Ron

I have hated this whole Fluke storyline from the beginning. It is boring, tedious and neverending. Geary’s acting is hammy and he looks like someone dug him up, literally. Wish the whole thing was over. It is polluting the show which has such great storylines going on. And the cast is so fantastic with Maura West, Michelle Stafford and Roger Howarth. Of course love seeing Robin Mattson again.

Jeremy

The acquisition of Maura West, Michelle Stafford, Roger Howarth, Michael Easton and Billy Miller is a game changer for the future of GH.
Hopefully, Michael Easton will be utilized more, along with Rick Hearst. And, Robin Mattson is a true gem!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Yeeesssss, Jeremy !!!! These actors/actresses are all worthy….every single one.
Nonetheless, if I had to choose to who the award goes? The stellar performers are Maura West for female best; and, Anthony Geary for male.

I feel that someday we will be talking about Fluke like we talked about Luke and Laura. This is a phenomenal story being told that HOPEFULLY will have a huge pay-off. I hope this is Tony Geary’s swan song. I love him but he will never be ever to top this at his age and in this day and age. He wanted to go out with a bang and this seems like the BANG he negotiated with Frank and Ron. What better way to leave the spotlight than holding and Emmy, his eighth. Amsterdam is calling. Thank you Mr. Geary.

Elite Advisors
Elite Advisors

I really hope this is not the case….I love this actor, and thank him profusely for all the years of drama he gave us…

I agree with you in that he did say he wanted to go out with a bang…something to the effect that ‘people do die’ … I would hate to think he will be gone for good, but he loves acting and perhaps this storyline was a way to keep him on the show for us and for Tony to re engage and re-invent himself…actors do get bored.

Amsterdam may be calling but hopefully he’s not picking up just yet !! 🙂

Timmm
Timmm

I love him and hope I am wrong. I think he will go missing and be gone for a while and reappear. I dont know, its tough for him because Tony wants Luke dead but the fans want him and Laura to walk into the sunset together.

Rose

I think the Fluke thing has become too convoluted and gone on too long. There is mystery, and there is good mystery. This has felt like a big stall. And while Tony may be acting his heart out, I personally don’t like what he and the writers have done with the “cast of characters” he may or may not be. I just hope they let him leave the show with at least a flash of the real Luke we all grew to love. But tradition is you just dump them in an asylum somewhere like they did Laura.
The most fun I’ve had with GH lately has been the unlikely five, if you include Madeline, breaking out of Pentonville. The ride in the van was hilarious, until the writers ruined it with yet another crash.

Howard
Howard

Im still so confused by it all. I want Luke to stay forever….meaning as long as GH is on.

Liz

i don’t think it’s D.I.D. but don’t understand why everyone is jumping down Ron’s throat over that. The story started in 1969 and he was only a few monta old at the time. He wasn’t working on the show until after her alters returned in 1995. He started in 1996 as a writers assistant so he really didn’t have much to do with Viki/Niki. That being said, it was brilliant how the writers brought Tess out and explained her “birth” and made it a full circle story.

I’m not sure how this is going to end up but I do believe that Helena is behind it. What would be more painful for Luke than to realize that he was responsible for the death of all his loved ones. That’s better revenge for Hels than just killing him, right? After all, he did shoot her dead.

People’s attention spans are very short and Ron always did like to tell the long story. It seems like there’s a lot more buzz over GH because of this Fluke story. That’s a good thing.

There once was a man called Fluke
Who could be Pat, Bill or Luke
He was ruthless in a creepy way
then he went a little cray cray
talking to a corpse
This story is a great big mess
and how it will end is anybody’s guess
all I know is I want to scream
Ron make this a dream
but not before you blow up the boat
of course.

Quite the cliffhanger! This story has served its purpose. It has generated more discussion that anything GH has done in awhile. I’m sure we will get some answers soon. After all, February is a sweeps month.

And I think the search for the estranged Spencer sister will spin out of the outcome of this.

i’m liking the story as its playing out right now granted i’m not sure where its going Anthony Geary has been great. friday’s cliffhanger has me anxious for monday to come around, i do feel like now we will start getting answers and hopefully they will make sense. heres what i don’t want, i don’t want this fluke to be patricia, and down the road i hope if fluke is luke that this doesn’t turn into endless never ending story of luke going back and forth from being luke to fluke to bill eckert, ect like they did with jessica on oltl, if there was one thing among many that made oltl annoyoing was its constant personality disorder storyline with jessica or vicki and countless crazy characters they had running around.

RC is a twister turner shocker..
He has us now believing Fluke is Bill..
For RC to have us believing Bill is Fluke, then he isn’t..
Somehow someway RC is going to put a big shocker on us, ya betcha !

and for gawd sake, it won’t be Patrica.. that was said in jest jokingly, a funny, and some took it to mind, go figure what some will believe LOL)

(I’m still believing Bill is not Fluke and Fluke is not Luke )

I’m waiting for a RC WHAMMY! 😉

Help me understabd…..who was locked up in the mental insitution? Was the real Luke ever there? How did Fluke switch himself out in time to get rescued by Alexis and Julian?
Thanks!

Nothing is certain. All is in doubt. All we know for sure is that Fluke & Helena made sure he was at Miscavige to be “rescued” by Julian and Alexis. How did he get in? Well, security is rather lax at that place considering how often Heather Webber came and went, and that Helena seems to have the run of the institute without any doctors. Julian was told that the real Luke was being held at Miscavige. But, it was all offscreen how he got that information, from whom, at what point and why they even told him. Whoever told him knew Julian could be used to funnel false information. So, even the scenes where Luke was talking to Fluke in Miscavige a year ago are now in doubt. Real or figment of a broken (or brainwashed) mind? To be continued…

My jaw almost hit the floor when the camera panned up, and you saw the corpse sitting in the chair that we thought Luke was sitting in. I was relieved when Dante finally came to, cause I thought finally after all this time, someone else was gonna see Luke tied up in the chair. But what we got instead, oh my god, what an awesome shocker!!

What a freaky look, with the hair, the eyes, the teeth, the skin looking like it melted away, exactly like you might expect someone that has been dead for 20 years to look. Not that I would know, or ever wanna find out, lol. The makeup/special effects people deserve all the kudos in the world for putting that together. I’m gonna have nightmares about that corpse sitting in the chair, lol.

Bravo to GH for yet another tremendous twist in this storyline that I would have never seen coming in a million years. This show keeps me on the edge of my seat every week, wondering what’s gonna happen next. That’s what I want from my soap. Not a show where I know what’s gonna happen before it happens, cause it’s so boring and predictable. That’s not this show.

The people that complain and are down on this storyline and the show in general, I respect their right to express their opinions. But sometimes I read some of these comments, and I truly wonder what show they’re watching. It’s not the same GH that I watch and thoroughly enjoy every week, that’s for sure!

Luke, as a living and breathing being, was all in Fluke’s head. Honestly? I have no clue what the heck will happen.
But, Dan, speaking of nightmares? The scariest thing that has ever horrified me, and still haunts me, is the original movie, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. ….gives me scary chills just thinking about it !

Dan
Dan

CeeCee, someone mentioned this on another board where I post, so I can’t take credit for it, someone may have mentioned it here too….but it’s kind of like something from the movie “Psycho” with Norman Bates and his mom, where we thought he was talking to his mother for the whole movie, and then come to find out at the end that she was dead the whole time. I think that could be what they’re going for here.

It will be interesting to see where it goes next. After this, I have no idea, cause just when you think you have things figured out, they take you in a totally different direction.

Night of the Living Dead! Love it, one of the all-time classic horror movies. My mom always told me the story of how she was so freaked out by it, she got up and walked out of the movie theater, lol.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hey, Dan.
I think it is interesting how the writers seem to have taken a page from Bloch’s book, PSYCHO, which was later adapted into a Hitchcock movie. I read the book before I saw the movie, for my Psych class.
My husband and I happened to catch the movie on TV. I had my eyes shut with my head turned away most of the time…..while my husband laughed throughout the entire gruesome scenes.

As far as this storyline and the path it has taken, I feel the same as you. Where wre we being taken now? Is Dante really focusing on the corpse slumped in the chair? ….or, is he also hallucinating? Reality versus fiction? We shall see…later.

Fluke is the love child of Anna and Casey the alien in a parallell universe (Casey is about the only heritage character that has not been pulled into GH yet). He also has DID and before this is over we will be treated to scenes of a two headed creature in the orange jumpsuit and it will be Lucy and Richard Simmons arguing then going into labor to produce their love child who will turn out to be Brian Frons whom they will promptly eat. GH will then be cancelled for going over budget due to special effects.

west virgina fan
west virgina fan

This (casey, lucy, richard, brian frons) wlll take place in an all musical episode set in a prison hospital ward where it will also be revealed that Helena is Steve Hardy after his transgender transition. And that we are viewing all of this through a snow globe of the actual hospital.

And in GH “real/reel” life, they better not kill off Brad at the haunted star. I actually find him kind of annoying and would rather see a less whiney gay romantic lead but it would be too cliched to have the only next step for a gay couple after on screen sex to be one of them dying heroically. This is still not the best message to send our LGBTQ youth.

The most inane conversations those two have, in bed or otherwise. The only good thing I get out of their bedroom scenes, is Ryan’s exposed flesh…LOL. but, even that gets too much in my face, after a while. Maxie should bounce off Johnny….her real-life husband. Wow! I feel the love; how in sync they are. I really enjoy their interaction on screen.

Loved it, hated it, ready for it to be over! Kudos to all the actors, writers, and staff for a job well done! I was interested enough if I missed an episode I watched General Hospital at night on Charter On Demand. It is included on (ABC) prime time, so grateful for that. I was PO when they took soapnet off the air. Anyway, wrap this up!

Cathy Phillips

I have to say I was shocked. I also have to say that normally when a plot is in the story line it does not effect the entire show. I for one-need this story line to be over. In a city only natural disasters or illness effects the entire city, so I am over this. But, I think FLUKE is LUKE and has gone completely mad.

Lucy D.
Lucy D.

I agree it’s time to wrap this up–but what a great ride it’s been. We STILL don’t know what the deal is. Who’s in the chair and why? That is the mark of a good soap.

Is Sabrina that naive she’s hanging with Carlos as her date to the party? Does Johnny know Fluke has planted a bomb? Does Johnny know who Fluke is–or that Helena’s involved?

So many questions I can’t wait to find the answers to.

KansasGuest
KansasGuest

I’m disappointed in how they made Carlos jump right back into the mob life after he got a second chance outside of jail. What a boneheaded decision if he’s trying to rebuild his life with Sabrina. Even worse, he chose to work with Fluke!

Lucy D.
Lucy D.

I know. It was disappointing on both fronts. That he chose to do that and that Sabrina is so blind she doesn’t know what he does for a living

Shay

At this point, Car-LOS! is the only game in town for Sappy….nobody else is exactly knocking down her door. Having said that, I think he could do far better. Despite his “occupation,” there are a number of successful women in Port Charles who would not let his blood-thirsty past get in the way of romance….although for me personally, his “mad dog” act is totally off-putting! At any rate, I am fervently hoping that some sort of explosion will rip through the Haunted Star simply to thin the top-heavy herd of GH cast members currently on the canvas….and at the top of my fatality wish list is none other than the Sapster!

CeeCee

“….will rip through the Haunted Star simply to thin the top-heavy herd of GH cast members……”
Oh, Shay!….. Great use of double entendre. The pun did not go unnoticed, Shay. I absolutely LOVE the play-on-words. And, I know exactly to whom you are referring. Keep ’em coming. LOL. later.

Well, if anyone were to have caught on to the subliminal undercurrent, it would have been YOU, CeeCee! LOL….. (Smart girl….) Yet while there are a few “onboard” who particularly fit my description, alas, our perennial favorites Alexis and Carly are nowhere near the dock at the moment…..however, Bobbie Boop definitely needs to go in the drink….in addition to looking as though she were about to tip over at any moment, she also sounded quite tipsy!!!

Well Done, RC, Well done!!!! I am tired of the Fluke story, but now this is getting interesting.

Hi Mary..
Nobody has mentioned how RC took us back to Lukes beginning..
His childhood house and gave us an insight to Luke’s world as a kid and his family life through Bobby while she was there looking around and her emotions of their house, their early unseen years…
I liked that ..
In a way if we watch closely and pay attention to what is being said we had a small journey of Lukes beginning and Tracy told of his start in the mob and now possibly his ending..
This story has has been a journey for Luke …
(Anthony geary deserves to go out in glory!)
Absolutely great writing !!

Elizabeth
Elizabeth

Tracy told of his start in the mob? She basically said SONNY got him in the mob. When Sonny didn’t even come to Port Charles until 1993 – 15 years after Luke was in the mob. If this ends up being Tony Geary’s swan song he will be embarrassed after he has the time to wind down from it. Seriously, many, many fans are outraged at how ridiculously poor this story telling is.

Timmm
Timmm

Your right su0000, Ron did what GH fans wanted and that is to go back and pay homage to GH’s history. I love the backstory on Luke, Bobbi hanging out with Lucas at Kellys, and paying homage to Aunt Ruby. I for one am enjoying Anthony Geary’s work and realize he may not be on the show much longer and am grateful for the Fluke story.

So I am assuming that the remains are Bill Eckhart’s! And the real Luke is being controlled by Helena! Why blow up the “Haunted Star” because the Cassadines and Spencer’s have hated each other for centuries – Helena kills all of Luke’s loved ones as revenge! Bet Jake stops it!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Ooooo. I like that idea, Beth. Jake will finally remember everything and at the eleventh hour, he will stop the fireworks. Wow! This would kill multiple birds with one stone. I truly hope it’ll go down this way.

yeah, according to today’s episode, it appears that’s the direction it’s headed with Jake making confessions to Sam.

Pat
Pat

Yeah- I bet it turns out to be Jake/Jason that ‘wakes up’ & is able to stop the boat explosion. Maybe it will be Sam’s Phoenix that helps him get in control of his mind. I have NO clue as to whose corpse is in that chair in the basement @ Elm Street, but I think that corpse wouldn’t be 20 yrs old (probably would be closer to a pile of dust now, right?) Not like I’m an expert on decomposed corpses, but I would tend to think that corpse is just a few years old..right? Aiiight…on that note….lol..!

CeeCee

I agree, Pat. But, I’m not an expert on decomposing bodies either. I did say on an earlier post, though, that whatever was in that chair, would have been a bag of bones after twenty years…..LOL. Later.

Wow! What a shocker! Truly, I would have never expected that twist, but it was so brilliant! A lot of people are complaining about the Fluke/Luke story dragging on for too long, and while it has, the writers have definitely kept enough suspense and intrigue in this story to keep me interested. Bringing back the house on Elm Street, talking about Luke’s family, it’s all been really interesting. And now it’s February Sweeps, and with two bombs and previews saying things are gonna explode and someone is going to get shot, these next few weeks are gonna be intense!

As for who Fluke really is, I honestly couldn’t even make an educated guess anymore. I originally thought it was Bill Eckert but after they dug up his grave and found it empty, I’m thinking the corpse in the basement is Bill. And Fluke, I’m thinking he is really Luke who is under mind control from Helena, just like Jake. What better way for Helena to hurt Luke than to control his mind, turn him into a monster, and have him plan to kill everyone he loves?

The only thing with that theory that doesn’t work is, Julian said he’s known Fluke since his days in the Witness Protection Program. So, if that’s true, then how could Fluke be Luke under mind control? That makes me think that Fluke is someone who hasn’t been on canvas for a while, like Frank or Damian Smith or maybe even Bill Eckert, and that corpse is his sister, Patty. Honestly, I don’t even know anymore, but I’m really looking forward to the reveal coming soon!

Rockin' Robin
Rockin' Robin

Yes, remember the other day when he was in the basement and he “Fluke” said “Bill Eckert, Bill Eckert, why is everyone talking about Bill Eckert” I was thinking to myself that was a clue, and maybe he is talking to himself. I don’t know how real Luke could have been tied up for so long and not eating or drinking. It sure was believable though! i really thought he was there for a long time, but when he kept talking and talking about things in the past, I knew he had to be mind controlled. I think Helena does have him controlled. Anyway, it is late and i am sleepy, hope this didn’t sound stupid, cause I am very tired right now. Anyway, I hope we soap fans are all happy with the outcome of this LONG story! PS Anthony Geary Rocks!

Timmm
Timmm

On soaps it seems like everyone rushes to have everything wrapped up in a neat bow real quick or everyone on a soap has to have a love interest. I hope Fluke wraps up sooner than later but they might just add a twist where AG could come back on the show down the road and do something more Luke like with Laura or reignite Fluke in a year or two? Either way, it is a pleasure to watch Anthony act, and be so brilliant!

Dr.HU
Dr.HU

I believe Fluke is Bill Eckert and Julian met him in Witness protection. Also, it was the real Luke that was locked in the basement. I don’t know how the skeleton got there. All we can do is watch the show. Kudos to Ron

Luke was Rendered unconscious by Heather Webber’s coconspirators and drugged while held captive at Miscavige Psychiatric Care Facility [Jan 20, 2014)and then:

Scott Baldwin visited Miscavige and found Luke wearing a wig and heavily sedated inside of Heather’s room. Heather’s coconspirators, orderlies at Miscavige, drugged Scott and held him captive as well.

After Scott and Luke? were rescued, Scott returned to normal behavior but Luke? remained disoriented.

How did Luke? end up back in Miscavige for Alexis & Julian to rescue him? Helena greeted Alexis & Julian in front of Luke?’s door and Julian did not know her.

Hi Gert,
I love love love a good mystery!!
and for a daytime soap story this one had me on the edge for 6 months and always working my mind trying to figure out ”who”
and when I thought I knew, I was wrong..
and I still am not sure.. the next 2 weeks will answer all questions and I will finally know.. who is Luke..
((sorta like; who shot JR))
I am excited and having good time a fun time with this story!!

The Luke/Fluke story is indeed soap genius !!

@Parick.
Hi, Patrick,

Firstly, I agree with your amusing, and not -so-charitable description of the two most “sought-after” sub-demoiselles of Port Charles…LOL.
Secondly, when you mention Carlos as Carly’s savior; are you being sarcastic? You are not suggesting that they hook up, are you? I hope not….icky notion, that ! It’ll be Sonny all over again…from one mini-mobster to another. The picture looks distorted. She needs a guy who is, at least, just as impressively towering as she.

@Gh50.
Hi,
You rarely post, but when you do, I eagerly read your comment. There are a handful on this site who give no-nonsense comments.
I sooo agree with you. All the storylines are so fragmented that my head spins trying to join the ‘links’ to this nonsensical and Bloch-inspired piece of fantastical writing. But, will there be a satisfactory and logical conclusion? I did say there is no format ….that ideas are ‘stuck’ in minute by minute; ( not literally)…..but, alack (lol) , I was shut down !! The reply was that storylines are written six ,or so, months ahead of time. Maybe so, but,
I have the right, though, to maintain my opinion. LOL.
I will also say that Geary is pulling this story off as the pro that he is. Ridiculous or not, he is great. He really should get his millionth Emmy.

clhosier
clhosier

In my mind it’s entirely possible that Luke is already dead. Tony has been wanting to retire for awhile now and this would be a heck of a story to go out on!

Renee
Renee

Forget the Helena brain washed Luke scenario. Helena could not have brain washed Luke. She was shot by Luke a few years ago, laying frozen in that clinic and was only recently revived! Fluke/Luke has doing his dirty work and criminal activities while Helena was frozen. This started long before Helena was un-thawed and brought back to life, which was just recently. When Luke shot her a few years ago and she was taken to Victors clinic. Victor was forcing Robin to come up with the antidote to bring them back to life safely after being frozen. She could not have brain washed him or had him locked up because she was not there. She was frozen in Victors Clinic. She was not even back yet. Robin was doing this work in hopes to bring Jason back. Its the only reason she agreed. So once both Jason and Helena were revived, that is when Helena used her mind control conditioning on Jason. So, I do not believe Fluke is actually Luke. If he had a split personality it would have surface long before he was in his 60’s. Where ever Luke is, he is still hidden away alive or he id dead. Fluke is a person who got a face/body/voice change from surgery exactly like Julian said.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hmmm. That’s true. You make much sense, Renee. But, to be honest, I am done speculating about who Fluke is…..seriously !! I will just allow myself to let it happen. It has to come to an end sooner or later. I just wonder if Robin is privy to any of the deviltry invading PC. Needless to say. She’s MIA, so what can she do about it?

You look so familiar, Renee. You look so much like one of the ladies at “Alice+Olivia” boutique, in Southampton, NY. Are you she?…..Lol.

lizzy
lizzy

who is the dead geezer in the chair? All of this split personality stuff and Luke/Fluke is the only one talking to the guy in the chair. Well then what is up with Dante? He sure as H can see someone in the chair and it’s holding a bomb. Well maybe it is Bill E. and Luke / Fluke does have a split personality that would help ease him out of the show for awhile or permanently in case he is thinking of retirement. Well, I just hope it is over soon.

Renee
Renee

Hi CeeCee. I do not blame you and I have come to that conclusion too, just yesterday. I wracked my brain enough. LOL! I wonder if Robin is privy to it too. But probably not the plan for the bombing. Just like Johnny has no clue the haunted star is about to explode. I think he would intervene to save at least Lulu and Maxie.
Jake (Jason) will remember what he did just in time to get most of the people saved.

CeeCee, I have never been to the east coast but have wanted to visit there. I live in Oregon. My profession is watercolor. Particularly infant baby portraits.

I am looking forward to Robins return. 😉

CeeCee
CeeCee

Wow!!! Today’s suspenseful scene between Sonny and Ava just before falling through that cavernous abyss was so real, I could taste it. Also, a drum roll for Sonny for showing his human side. That’s a lot coming from me. I must give credit where credit is due.
I will also concede that Sam is sailing through her discourse with Jake. Great job, for once.

Christy
Christy

At the end of GH on Friday, I was thinking there is going to be something wrong with his head, thinking like it was regular night shows, not on daytime… but WOW! They showed that burned head and my mouth just dropped open… right past the credit! Way to go GH!

I figure that the body is the one that was probably tucked away for a while in Bill’s grave for a while, but don’t think it’s Bill Ekert, otherwise there would be three people with that face!

in a twist that only Helena could come up with, I think she would be delighted if she could brainwash everyone and have them take out their own families, like she tried to on Jake/Jason, but then even she said she thought she was tempting fate when she told Jake to kill Sam… and that failed. So I don’t think that the evil Luke is our Luke… and the one tied up seemed to be our Luke anyways.

And the car wreck/prison break/gunfight/LSD needle… while it was great to see Franco/Heather again,and see Heather can still get her hands on liquid LSD and a large syringe, ha, the gunfight at the wreck… well, who knew mobsters were such lousy shots! bwahahahahaha

Christy
Christy

If Carlos or Johnny survive the gun fight, I could see either of them killing Fluke – and quickly – if Sabrina, Lulu or Maxie gets blown up or injured. I don’t think either of them had any idea about a bomb on the boat… so since all the mob guys can’t seem to shoot a nickel, they all survive, and team up and take Fluke down, for good. 🙂

And then when Jason remember who he is, he can give shooting lessons to the rest of them! bwahahahahahaha

CeeCee
CeeCee

Lol, Christy. I must admit, the gunfire blast was a bust. I am still trying to figure out what happened today . Were they shooting to wound or kill?
When Ava hung there, suspended at the pier, feet dangling; I really admired the realism and creativity. But, in retrospect, albeit it was a great scene, I wonder how she could possibly have held on for so long with a bullet in her upper right chest. Regardless, it was great acting on both their part.
I did appreciate Sonny coming to her rescue considering his death wish on Ava by his own hand. I liked the fact that his innate feeling of human decency won over his hatred for her.

Christy
Christy

Well Ava slipped out of Sonny’s grip… But considering her great gymnastic feats (doing a back flip off the railing and then miraculously coming up under the bridge to grab the under side… Give her a gold medal!) then I’m sure she’ll survive. She’ll probably get back to port chuck before that second bomb goes off.

I think Luke Spencer was still alive but Helena Cassadine and two henchmen hid him and Nikolas In Spoon Island. Bill Eckert took him away. Then he put the bomb. Sonny saved the day. I think Sonny was still alive when he swam in the water and he used secret in the water.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hi, Randal.
Sadly,I did say that Sonny would end up the hero. He does not deserve it. Yet, I suppose it is the only way for the character to be out of jail, with time served. I do not like the idea.
This entire storyline would have been better served with Jake as the hero.JMO.

lizzy

ok here goes. . . Bill Eckert’s body was in the chair – Luke is still missing /stashed somewhere and Helena had her son Stavros brought back from the dead and had his face changed and he is Fluke
There How’s that.

General Hospital

GH’s Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

Courtesy/ABC

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Courtesy/ABC

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.

Share your thoughts on the performances of Kathleen and Michelle and what stood out to you via the comment section below.

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.
