GENERAL HOSPITAL: Fluke Is … Luke Spencer?

Courtesy/ABC

After Friday’s cliffhanger on ABC‘s General Hospital, viewers were either left with clarify, confused more than ever, threw something at their TV or computer screens, or were loving the twists and turns of the ongoing saga of the mystery of “Who is Fluke?”

After Fluke (Tony Geary) and Helena (Constance Towers) are put behind bars (Fluke tried to kill Nikolas, and then there are those bombs), the evil Cassadine matriarch wants Agent Sloane (Grayson McCouch) to get them out of the slammer.

However, Sloane informs them that it will cast way too much suspicion to do so! Fluke agrees, and is ready to finally have his true identify come to light!  He says to Helena that he can’t wait to see the look on everyone’s faces when it becomes common knowledge.  Meanwhile, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), who was running tests at General Hospital on the skeleton remains found in the basement of the Spencer’s old home, tells Tracy (Jane Elliot) and Lulu (Emme Rylan) that she has some preliminary results to share.  Obrecht says:  “These are indeed Luke Spencer’s remains, and he has been gone quite a long time.”  When Lulu inquires how long, Dr. O replies, “Decades.”  Liesl then goes on to say that,  “We estimate the subject has been dead at least twenty years,” and that at this point that is all she knows.

The scene cuts back to Fluke in jail who says:  “All these idiots have been chasing their tails for a year now thinking I’m Jerry Jacks, thinking I’m Larry Ashton, thinking I’m Cesar Faison, and now they have settled on another bogus theory – they think I’m Bill Eckert!  They should have let poor Bill Eckert rest in peace.  That son-of-a-bitch has been dead all along! The answer has been starring them in the face the whole time … and not one of them cares to see it.”

At the end of the episode, Nathan (Ryan Paevey) comes to the hospital, and tells Tracy and Lulu that he did run the fingerprints on the man that they have in custody. and they are a match for those of Luke Spencer!  Tracy and Lulu are dumbfounded and shocked as the episode concludes!

So, is the final answer?  Is Fluke the real Luke Spencer?  Fluke said Bill Eckert has been dead along! After reading between the lines of the dialog, do you believe we are watching the real Luke?  Share your theories and thoughts on this latest revelation.

I dont give a Fluke who he is…maybe he is Mikkos, Jennifer Smith, Patricia, some other Cassidine, Luke or Mr. Rogers…its a beautiful day in Port Charles…would do mind…do you mind…wrapping up this storyline…before i loose my mind…lol

Hi jimh!
A great mystery is not knowing the butler did it lol
and Fluke/Luke is a great mystery!
It has kept all twirling figuring it out- ”why” and ”who” ??

RC has known the ending from the beginning..
He and his team have always known we just have to wait for the last page to be turned/reviled..

I still believe it will be shocker 🙂

Sue, I like literature and movies which are hard to understand. I don’t mind living in confusion as I negotiate through a series of steps the clues which lead up to solving that mystery. But this Fluke is the Titanic of stories because of the false and inconsistent clues which can never be tied up into a neat box with a bow. Moreover, this self indulgent story has Tony Geary’s hostility built into it. Time and time again Geary has given interviews in which he speaks of resenting the fans who adored Luke with Laura. Or how he resented Labine… Read more »

I guess I’ll have to KEEP ON waiting to see if I like the writing about this Fluke/Luke thing! So far, it has taken way too long!

Hi, Bridget. I do not know the characters well, especially the Cassadines. But, from the little I saw of Stavros, he sounded very child-like…..recalcitrant, in a way. There was a scene between him and Victor, where in my mind’s eye, I see him stomping his foot because he was prevented, by Victor, from meting out a certain punishment upon Lulu and Dante as they were held prisoner at the clinic. If Fluke were Stavros, then he would still be trying to inseminate Lulu with his sperm, yes? Ewww!!!! I don’t know if Stavros’s brain was only half thawed, but, I… Read more »

What a complete and utter mess this story is. Carlivati is just spinning in it and he has the arrogance to mock the audience, calling us “idiots.” And he was talking about the audience because the characters were not suspecting that Luke was anyone else for a “year.” But I’m not sure we’re the idiots Ron. The entire year has been nothing but an incoherent mess, filled with convoluted plot points and ridiculously bad dialogue that undermines things we’ve heard moments before. I’m going to shocked not only if there are logical explanations for things we’ve seen, but if they… Read more »

hi AJQ
This story is not a mess, it is a ”mystery” where nothing is known until til the end- that is how great mysteries are written and are to be..
We read the whole book and wait for the last chapter to ”know”..
If someone tells us the ending no use to read on the mystery is ruined, so we close the book ..

I think Bill is just a puzzle piece of no great importance a ploy to throw everyone off, a good mystery will do that.. ..

I agree with you AJQ 100%…This story originated in RC’s mind and it’s his to twist and turn to the end. Since viewers have to go along for the ride…don’t expect us to try to figure out a cartoonish convoluted plot that you came up with. The whole ending will be a silly disappointment and that’s what he’s setting it up for. When you write such a huge arc on an outrageous scale..even the writer confuses himself and loses his way. Don’t try to say we should have known all along…BECAUSE YOU DIDN’T RC..and you wrote it!

I still think RC doesn’t know the ending. The twists and turns are made up as he goes along. I say this, despite the fact that many disagree with me.

You’re right, AJQ! This storyline is a total mess! It’s such a mess that even long-time Tony Geary fans are tired of it and tired of him. And I agree with you about dialogue mocking the frustrated, impatient viewers. But we have plenty of reason to be frustrated, impatient and (now) insulted!

I think Frank Valentini is an excellent, creative and innovative EP and the same goes for Ron Carlivati, as a writer. BUT, I am SO done with this storyline. Tony Geary should definitely be nominated and receive the Emmy for best actor and GH should win for best soap. I have to admit the story has been compelling and has kept us guessing for so long! Something is definitely wrong with Luke (the man was talking to himself as Luke and Fluke). Let’s get to the bottom of the story – PLEASE!

What the HEY is going on ??? Did Helena have him brainwashed and then reprogrammed
to bitterly hate and loath those he once called family and friends, when she nabbed him
last year. Great twist for us, what fun for them, as they delve deeper into their characters
personalities. NOT ENOUGH GENERAL HOSPITAL EMMY NODS.

Not a surprise and not nearly as awesome as TPTB at GH had led us to believe. Now the burden is on them to explain this in a way that actually, you know, makes sense and doesn’t insult the viewers who’ve been watching Luke Spencer all along. And then, once they’ve explained it, can we please move on? I’ve read in numerous places that this would all be explained in early 2015 and it’s still dragging along with no end in sight. Let’s go already.

I think this is finally the answer, that Luke is under mind control by Helena. But there are a few issues First, how did Julian meet him in the Witness Protection Program all those years ago if Luke has been in Port Charles that whole time? And if this is Luke, who did Heather lock up in Miscavige? Because if she had locked up the real Luke, does that mean Helena brainwashed him while he was in Miscavige, and when he was rescued he was already under mind control? Also, if Helena truly had Luke under mind control (like she… Read more »

Amen, babsy! Luke without Laura–impossible!
And I’m sure that Genie would come back for a storyline like this–and most especially to help usher out Luke Spencer–if this is indeed TG’s swan song.
Tony Geary has begged for an “adult” storyline for Luke and Laura–can’t think of anything more “adult” than this! Genie is the best! And TG and Genie together–unstoppable!

I had briefly touched on this very subject a few weeks ago, and again, as recently as a couple of days, Jimmy. I had proposed that Nikolas and Sloane were working together to thwart the blood-thirsty Grim Reapers’s actions. It is very possible that Helena is controlling Fluke…(boy, if I had such powers, there would be no war, no diseases, no hunger in this world….), however, I get the impression that Fluke is in charge, not the other way around. Also, has anyone else noticed that Helena kowtows to Fluke? She is almost in fear of him….so subservient. If he… Read more »

Tony is in with this story, it is also his story..
Luke will remain the loved Luke..

Fluke is in charge. Helena was afraid of him on Friday and if she controlled his mind she would have simply ordered him NOT to kill Nick. Its another Cassadine.

If he is Luke there is a story that will follow.. I sorta thought he would be Luke because it would perfectly be befitting for Tony to be Luke, actually.. There was a time Luke was the bad guy, much like Fluke.. I think Fluke himself has killed one guy- the gangster working for him who was a killer.. Fluke had others do his dirty work he never killed anyone he had others do the dirty deeds.. Luke would never be cozy with Helena, that is why I do not believe Fluke is Luke.. He being all cuddly with Helena,… Read more »

Ces, of course the Governor is letting Sonny off it is meant to be.. did you actually believe Sonny would be held in prison, no way never happen.. It is a story not reality, so ya I can see the the Governor letting Sonny off 🙂 The writers knew the ending/outcome of the story from the beginning.. that is how it works with the ending in sight while writing..

Well, what CAN we believe? Do we trust the Commissioner that he didn’t switch prints? If Frisco is now head of WSB, is he corrupt too? It’s obviously some version of the real Luke–but questions remain. It can’t be Helena mind control–he was going to shoot Nikolas against her wishes. I don’t think it’s DID–but…who did the “real” Luke think he was talking to in the basement? Why would Bill Ekart’s bones be in the Spencer basement? Who dug them up & why? Why did Nik help rig the election? Is he going to tell Scotty the truth now? I… Read more »

Wasn’t there a spoiler/rumor floating around about 6 months ago that Robin was going to find (real) Luke and spring him from captivity and come back to town with him? That was supposedly going to be another “sweeps twist” some time this month. I think it was mentioned on a few sites.

Add me to the confused list. IMO all clues lead to Damian Smith. Luke is probably on Cassadine Island with Robin. Just remember this story has gone on for so long because Tony had two back surgeries.

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

That is also very confusing to me……how well Tony is managing after his travail. He should consider himself a very lucky man. Two back surgeries? I was always under the impression that the older we are, the more risky back surgery is because our bones become too brittle. Normally, back surgery would not be recommended. I am sure he was made aware of the risks….he probably felt those risks were a better choice than living with excruciating pain. That takes courage…kudos, Tony. So, not only should AG count his lucky stars, but also the orthopedic surgeon who performed the surgery.… Read more »

ANY surgery is riskier as you get older. Plus, he smokes. Smoking will deteriorate your bones over time and eventually be no stronger than balsa wood. He is very lucky to be recovering, hopefully pain free.

Why waste my time when nothing I watched in the first place makes sense or even goes with the story anymore? that’s called making stuff up as U go along.

I agree with you all.But I think also that if he Fluke is Luke..many might pissed because we were led to believe someone was held at miscavage someone was held in the basement with character talking to character taking rope and duct tape off. So hopefully Fluke is disguised as someone who johny knows and who julian said was a figure from witness protection…Damian Smith may fit this individual. But..now im confused more than ever..because only a fraction of characters would remember him.

I think that of it is the real Luke he is brainwashed from Helena. And how the heck did Dante turn around so quickly? He had a skull fracture and couldn’t possibly have rebounded that quickly. GH has no storyline flow like it used to. Please bring back Robert if only for a visit.

If this is the answer then the last year has been pointless. Maybe whoever this is effectively erased Luke from the system and planted his own info. We saw Helena remove Jason’s prints from the system. Luke being brainwashed or under Helenas control doesn’t seem to jive with him threatening her so often in the past two weeks and the fact that the underlying storyline has been going on for over a decade considering Julian’s involvement and the use of Barrett Enterprises. DID would be lazy, and still wouldn’t explain Flukes ability to run a company and fund Julian. Julian… Read more »

Yay!!! Finally somebody who follows through this very lengthy timeline! Totally agree real Luke is held captive still. Tony Geary interview in 6/26/14 TV Guide reveals him saying there is a 2nd character involved because Luke isn’t a sociopath. To me that means an impersonater. Unless the writers changed the story they pitched to Geary to stay with the show? I hope not because if it’s mind control, DID, etc I will be insulted.

I live in New York, do you think our governor would pardon sonny? I would give him a boot in the ass and send him back to solitary confinement! Unfortunately my favorite soap One Life to Live was canceled and I was hurting so decided to pay closer attention to GH. So not worth it! But the soaps on the other stations are horrid and at least they can act on GH which is their saving grace.

I still do not think luke is fluke. Things are beginning to come untied and it is not making any sense right now. I still think that it is damian smith, mikkos unfrozen or valentine. Helena seems scared of the fluke and treats him like a lover who controls her. My guess is a cassadine that has had facial reconstruction. I think REAL luke is with Robin where ever she is being held captive. It is time to get over fluke and get jason/jake to remember it all and back with who ever he wants to be with, whether it… Read more »

Well…the only major character that was effectively in witness protection ten years ago was….Laura (as Genie Francis was effectively banned by the Guza regime). So…Laura is Fluke with a Luke mask. And as for Tracie not getting it. Well, except for Joe Scully it does not seem that she was every all that enamored of any of her husbands so maybe spanky buns wouldn’t have noticed. Certainly Laura has the right to hate Luke. Having her kill Lulu would have been a bit over the top (but maybe having all those people mistake a mop for their mother made her… Read more »

I am willing to give Frank and Ron the benefit of the doubt If Tony Geary is happy I am happy I dont want Tony to retire So i will stay patient with the Fluke storyline I can see fans are getting annoyed but stay patient like me Ron better write this good Plus other storylines are just as bad Like Sonny getting pardoned and Ivy’s dad is the New York govenor give me a break

ARGH! end this stupid story-line once and for all … You can change your figer prints — it’s done by editing software in the database and that Helena (Constance could have done it —

My theory..The inmates ran Miscaviage. Maybe Helena made that happen.
Suddenly..there’s Heather..with an injection of LSD. WHERE did she get it?
Has Luke been “tripping” for over s year? Or have WE?

The storyline has been interesting and entertaining. Every good thing must come to an end. The end has come. Move ON.

Guess I’m in the minority on this page, with all the negativity I’m reading, but I’ve enjoyed this storyline. This is just the latest twist on this roller coaster ride of a story. And I actually think it’s a pretty brilliant twist. We’ve all been here speculating on who Fluke really is, and they gave us all the red herrings, Jerry Jacks, Faison, Larry Ashton, Bill Eckert, even Luke and Bobbie’s long lost sister Patricia, and it’s possible he’s been the real Luke the entire time, whether a Luke that is either being controlled by Helena, or a Luke that… Read more »

I agree, Dan. Yes, it has been a very intricate storyline, and, I’m sure, most entertaining for many. But, the s/l has lost a lot of steam and our interest has waned. I don’t think, at least I don’t, viewers, in general, have this much patience…..how long has it been? We Americans, are a most irrepressible, but impatient society…LOL.

Your not alone Dan. This story is ever changing and look at us all on this site going back and forth! Great stuff. I’m watching GH everyday no matter what. But I cherish FLUKE/LUKE because I know Anthony Geary will not be on this show forever!

This storyline needs to end…enough already. Focus on Sonny getting out of prison…his relationship with Carlie and Michael….focus on Ethan and Maxi…does Elena have nine lives…get rid of her once and for all and Luke….is it or isn’t it?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mike’s Funeral Brings The Alzheimer’s Storyline Full Circle to Its Heart-Tugging Conclusion

When a soap opera allows a full episode to stay in the story they are telling, it can often make for a riveting hour of television.  This was the case and then some on Thursday’s emotional ending to General Hospital’s Alzheimer’s storyline; when the character of Mike Corbin (Max Gail) was given a proper send-off – a funeral – and being eulogized by those who loved and cared for him.

When GH is at its best through the years has been when it tackles social issues of our time, and this story will stand among the iconic soap’s best.  The backdrop of the story was that of father and son, grappling with and coming to terms with the past, finding love, forgiveness and redemption against this most horrific of diseases that has afflicted so many.

In the episode, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) go to church and prepare themselves for the emotional day as mourners come through and share their grief and condolensces and love for Mike.  Those included: Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth – back for this one), Stella (Vernee Watson), Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and a touching moment between Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) and Carly where the legal eagle says to Carly that if she ever needs to drink and vent let her know.

 

As the funeral begins, one by one Mike’s family and friends say beautiful words of what he meant to them,. Michael reflects about how his grandfather loved to party and how he’d like them all to raise a glass for him. . Olivia, speaks on behalf of Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), and how close Mike and Dante were.  Ava (Maura West) talks about the love and kindness and joy he brought to little Avery.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) got up to speak, things became even more heartbreaking when she flashes back to a scene where she was having a terrible time and Mike was there for – always a great listener- but he tells he eventually, he will not remember her.

GH did a outstanding job of selecting scenes throughout the eulogies that punctuated who Mike was … and how he tied in to all of the characters lives.  Jason (Steve Burton) shared how he knew it wasn’t easy for Mike to come back and try to make amends with Sonny, but that no matter what, Mike kept trying to get through to Sonny to make things right between them.

Stella’s moment was also heartbreaking recalling the man who became her friend.  Carly, who was the glue that held Sonny and the family together during Mike’s illness, shared her doubt if the family could handle Mike, and what was to come, but how Sonny helped his father find inner-peace..

When Sonny gets up to talk he reveals he had a lot of anger towards his father, and how the illness made him truly see the man his dad was inside.  Sonny tells his dad he is proud of him and how grateful he was that he came back into his life.   Next, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) sings as the mourners reflect back on Mike in a touching series of juxtaposed clips against the characters in the moment at the funeral.

After the service had concluded Sonny and Carly talk how Morgan and Mike are together now, but Sonny asks for some time alone in the church. It is then Mike appears and tells his son it’s time he forgave himself, since Sonny forgave Mike.  He tells Sonny that he has made him very proud.  As he gets up to leave he kisses Sonny on the forehead and goes towards the light and to heaven.  Just after that, Dante appears at the front of the church, shocking Sonny in a beautiful analogy that now this father and son must deal with what’s ahead in their relationship, just as Sonny and Mike had done.

This episode featured beautiful work by Maurice Benard, and Max Gail and everyone in the supporting cast who had their moments.  It was an ensemble piece but led by Benard and Gail, who should both be receiving Emmys in 2021 for their work..
