General Hospital


GENERAL HOSPITAL: Fluke Is … Luke Spencer?



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

This Fluke identity thing is worse than figuring out who John Black really is over at Days and thats been going on for three decades..maybe i need to take Heathers needle and stick it in my neck…lol

Let him be David Lochart from Bright Promise…he was mentally unstable…and it would be a great nod to TG…it was his first daytime role!!!

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 🙂

sidebar : STAT : Soapbox

JimH : “has the funniest quips, whit, delivery”

not to mention knowledge that is sought out


don’t we all just love this stuff


thursday’ ep : Helena to Nikolas : “such drive, such fire, where has this side of you been all these years ” LOL “you will make a “decent” Cassadine yet”

LOL… kudos to the writing production : for unearthing top draw “big dog” Tyler Christoppher…. writers: “keep ON” it’s the biggest surprise of near ALL of the fluke fallout…

next up : “Jake Doe” remnants of Jason expertise…. LOL… i only wish he somehow did snuff out Sam…. her gumshoe is OVER the top…. get some act

I hate reading that Brandon Barash IS NOT back permanent… he’s been the champagne bubbly and not a surprise at how much he generates…. especially, with Maxie and Lulu… who’s feminine drive just surfaced… mating call

dissapointed in where the character of Carlos has gone? is he? like several posts… he’s been a treat every time he’s on screen…. real deal reels

laughable : Chad Duell…. as Carly is yelling at him to help resuscitate, Sonny… when his character first sees the bomb at the haunted STAR… with 1 1/2 minutes left… where is the fire ? the draw? I don’t get the attraction here… i’d pin him right up their with Daniel from days of our lives… no spark, drive, and doesn’t matter

I was caught up in AG’ acting…. “get on your knees” scenes with Helena and Nikolas….

recast : Sloane…. he brings an intensity … even Nathan was responding…

LOL : Wally Kurth’ Ned with the flu bug…. he’s so easy to love… sexy

Maurice Benard : the lame ticket oughta pentonville… prop to Sonny… for stepping up to the plate… and oughta the box… he lended a renewed interest in his act, his pentonville reservation paid off… course, it was brought back down with Carly and Michael… it’s so much hit and miss with these three : Sonny, Carly, Michael

this was the loveliest i’ve ever seen Sabrina… in that black dress all gussied up

Tyler Christopher for the win marquee and feature

Dr. O : “if Anna Devane was still in charge, i’d have had my bone saw out hours ago”

humorous dig….

I liked the interchange betwixt “fluke” Helena, and Sloane at the jail cell…. interPLAY between strong players with ACTing

standing “ovation” reign for Tyler Christopher…. NEWnikolas MAN

OK for propensity : SCRIPTure : Anthony Geary

“The train is off the rails, that boat has sailed, the bus has lost it’s wheels, you better buckle up baby, it’s going to be a bumpy ride”

Helena whet too

Morgan is SSSSOOOO off the charts reel (magnetize)

woah, TEARS streamed with : MB’ Sonny and Dante hug it out…. “‘m glad you’re alive” “I impressed my son”


Ava Jerome is presumed dead…. fade : blackout : the best coming attraction

tit for tat : ? : Sonny gets outa jail free marker…. fan recoil strike ! at least he is ??? empathizing about Ava???

AMEN!!! Let’s just make him Casey “space alien” from the planet Lumina and be done with it.

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 for trying to make Luke finally grow up and be domesticated. He said it was boring for him.
Oh, poor Tony suffering from such horrific conditions. Imagine only having to work six months a year and receiving a salary that even full time contracted actors do not come even close to earning. Finally, Geary has expressed resentment about how Bill Eckert was killed off. It seems this entire Fluke fiasco is predicated entirely on Geary’s bitterness and writing a story spurned by the need for personal vindication is never a good motive. Suffice to say, the need for revenge serves a lousy muse.
As someone who has idolized and respected Tony Geary since I was fifteen, I can say I feel very disappointed in him.
I know he will be leaving soon and he will not be leaving with us wanting more. At this point I want Tony Geary to do a like a sheep herder and get the Fluke out of here. I never thought I would write something like the aforementioned.

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! I realize that has been part to Anthony’s surgery so I can deal it, but now it’s TIME to reveal everything!! I just hope that after us waiting ALL this time, that it was worth the wait!!

Y’all think about it I think it’s Stavros Cassadine! And the real Luke is locked up somewhere! Listen to the way he talks.. It’s him, Stavros!

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 doubt he could have carried the diabolical schemes this far.
Yet, as I said, I do not know these characters enough for me to delve into their psyche….except that they all seem to be off-kilter. So, anything is possible.

jimh, I am laughing! I agree! & your mention of John Black on DAYS cracked me up!

OMG!! Yes this storyline is beyond OK Luke Fluke Faison IDF just be done with it

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 even bother addressing most of them.

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.
I agree with your every word.

TG has major say in this storyline so it should be his fault also for this mess….

I doubt he contributed much other than his superlative performance; he was in agony before and after his back surgery.

I dont see it as a mess but a mystery. Everything today is like a Tweet. Why cant we just be patient and go with this story. I dont care if it goes another year as long as AG gets to shine and there is a payoff in the end.

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

Let’s just say for them to sell this story the explanation better be good! That’s all I’m saying..

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’d like to cast my vote for: confused, big time!

I do not understand why so many are confused..
I am not confused but I am still guessing who Fuke really is..
I like a good a mystery wherein I do not know ”who did it” and this story is delivering a great mystery.. …. ”why” and ”who” .. ?????

Key words: “a great mystery”. This sl is/was sorely lacking.

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 has Jason), wouldn’t she have been able to stop or prevent him from trying to kill Nikolas? She should have that ability if he was under her control.

Speaking of Nikolas, is he under mind control too? Or is he just pulling a fast one on Helena to make it seem as if he’s on her side when he’s really not?

My point is, there is still a lot of explaining that needs to be done here, the story is far from over.

But my biggest gripe with this whole thing is, where are Laura and Lucky through all of it? Why is Lulu dealing with this all on her own without her immediate family around to support her? I really think they should have brought them back for this story because they are Luke’s family and they should know what is going on, and if this mind control thing is real, Lucky went through it too, so he should know. Plus, it might help mend his and Luke’s relationship if Lucky helps bring Luke back the way Luke did with him.

thank you! my thoughts exactly – you can’t do a reveal like this with LUKE without LAURA – and we know Genie Francis is available. Otherwise it’s not really being true to the show’s history and the audience!

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 is the “baddest”of the bad, I’d give him a wide berth too.
I’m really beginning to agree with the poster who suggested that Fluke is really Nathan’s bio father.

hey CeeCee whozit going?
We’re talking about the mind of rc and fv too..
King of shockers..
It is NOT who we all now believe it is, no way..
RC is trolling us with a carrot into a brick wall !!

Tony is in with this story, it is also his story..
Luke will remain the loved Luke..
People have to wait for it..
RC and FV in twitter are saying the best is yet to come.. that excites me ! lol

Luke is not brainwashed, no, don’t go there RC wants that, jump over it..

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.

heres my theory ..nobody gives a dam any more,,,and as for me i never did,,cassidines with out laura are a total waste of airtime,sorry but the writers totally messed up on this one,,,this could have been an amazing story with genie francis back,,,it could have been laura love for luke that uncovers the mystery..or better yet it could have bem laura playing the double or triple roles…makeing every one wonder if laura had lost grip on reality again, or was sweet laura back for revenge on a family that has just moed on with out her,,,its just my opinion ,,but all this storyline did was piss me off that ava or nina werent on screen….you can bring all the a list stars of daytime on,,,michelle stafford ,billy miller..donna mills..but the heart of general hospital with not beat untill genie francis is back…

we need and want genie and lucky back! Get Robert and Mac back to help luke! We don’t need anymore new people, use the ones you have! As for tony Geary, he is doing a great job! Another award coming up! The show would not be the same without luke!!!

Thank you Randy! I have been saying this since Genie left the show. They should have offered her the moon to return full time to the show.

Absolutely correct. If they want to really be true to the show and its history and the loyal fans, GENIE FRANCIS must be brought back.

No, Obrecht said IF these remains are Luke, then he’s been dead for decades. In other words, the remains are not Luke.

I myself said in a previous post those remains arent Luke’s…i think the body is Steve Hardy who has been rolling over in his grave because of what has happen to his beloved GH…lol

The only reason that Steve Hardy would be rolling over in his grave is to get out and to applaud the writers for such a good job in writing all the stories.. Bravo!! Bravo!!

Look at all the bad talk about this storyline… but all of you keep watching…. not soo bad afteralllll!!!

Luke, Fluke. I’m past any interest. Annoyed and weary of this storyline. Maybe they can pull out an interesting twist and somewhat satisfying ending, but I doubt it.

This story is STUPID. Let’s ruin the character of Luke like they did Frisco.

Luke can not be ruined if it is not Luke..

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, well- that is not right, nope..
Luke would die before he ever being cozy with Helena.

I still think Fuke/Luke is a Cassadine with plastic surgery..
The Cassadine clinic of horrors can create some weird stuff..
Whatever- Luke and Helena as cuddly buddies and Luke ordering Helena around and Helena ordering Luke around, well there is something very not right about that..

But in the end, to have Luke be himself would indeed be righteous..

Do the writers actually have a storyline or are they writing as they go along because nothing makes sense to me anymore.
I’m so confused now!!

In other news, lemme guess. the Governor is letting Sonny off for murder because he saved his daughter on the boat? really?

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..
We just have wait for it..
and a good mystery is always somewhat confusing that is what makes a mystery good, not knowing the how, why and who until the end.. every great mystery is like a jigsaw puzzle-

Ahh, Su. TPTB picked the wrong state for fictional PC. The governor of my state would have never set Sonny free. …..too unrealistic for a diehard New Yorker, such as I. Nooooo, nooooo, nooooo. Let the rats in Pentonville have Sonny.

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 know I’ve been waiting for this storyline to end, but I’m intrigued by the questions–I want answers. And now that they’re looking for answers maybe there will be a little less of threatening, screaming OTT Fluke on my screen, which will help enormously.

It is a good storyline… one that moves and changes lanes. great!! I can’t wait to find out what the scenes in the basement was all about between the two Lukes… Good things to come!! FUN FUN FUN… Great writing as always GH….

I am beginning to think the only way to make this work– dead body is Luke; Fluke is Luke, and the guy who went looking for a raccoon over a year ago was Luke– there has to be three of them– Identical triplets perhaps?

lol.. time will tell!

I was one of those who wanted to throw something at the television LOL. All I can say there better be an explanation that ties all the threads together in a nice big bow for me, otherwise I will need to buy a new television when I do throw my shoe at it.

hi Mary SF,
Of course the ending will all be tied together in a big bow lol
RC and team had the ending working all through the story 🙂
they know what we are still guessing about..
I am so waiting for the final curtain to fall..

I am trusting the writers to have a serious explanation for the truth behind Fluke! The writers and producers have more then enough shown long time fans of their respect for General Hospital history and legacy characters. I have no doubt this storyline was given their proper attention and will reach a satisfying conclusion.

Of course all will be clearly answered, at the end, now..
It has been one helluva journey!!

I had absolutely no problem following along..
Many could not follow along because they OVER THINK way too much..
Overthinking fantasy/make believe is never a good thing to do, it will just confuse you..
Never over think and nitpick and analyze, that is stupid to do in itself lol just enjoy the entertainment the fictional story…

I have had a really good fun time with the Luke/Fluke story and it was a great treat for me to go on the wild and crazy journey…. luved it !

I still do not believe Fluke is Luke, but If he is then BRAVO! How befitting!

If they are really devoted to being true to the history of this show, LAURA must be brought back to help tie up these loose ends with Luke. Otherwise, the PTB don’t really care about the audience, despite their declarations that they do.

I agree Robert!! I can’t believe all this complaining that is going on… come on.. relax.. it has been a good story.. and great for the actor to be able to have back surgery and then come back.. There is so much going on with GH that no one should be complaining. It is great how the writers are brining back GH history and at the same time making a new future.

i quit watching Days a few years ago after poor and slooooowww writing of stories that drag on and on.. GH is much better and keeps my interest. Also it is not predictable as many soaps are…

Ive complained about it here and there but that doesnt mean im not enjoying most of it…i suffer severe back pain so i understand what TG has suffered and it delayed this storyline somewhat but the Fluke story needs to be tied up soon because some will get tired of it and tune out…if i didnt like the show i would tune out…my problem is minor flaws here and there and the writing seems to be that tptb arent certain how to bring this paticular storyline to a satifying conclusion…but i do like some of the twists and turns!!!

I’m 6 years late to this thread but am re-watching GH from 2005 until present. I am now on this AWFUL “Fluke” garbage story.

You must feel pretty stupid now huh? All you did in this entire thread is become an idiotic cheerleader for one of the worst storylines in Daytime TV history. LOL


Totally ridiculous storyline. Enough is enough. End this farce.

So tired of this Fluke story and the writers have twisted directions so many times. If Fluke wanted to get back at Sonny then fine, but why involve Gerry, Faison, Helena, Julian and more? This story goes back so far that most viewers cannot even remember how it started. Overkill, overdone, overindulged. PLEASE STOP IT. WE DON”T LIKE IT ANY 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.

I would gladly welcome Robin with Luke in tow as Quasi Moto or Pagliaccio even; as long as this fallacy comes to an end.

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.

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. He must be an ‘artist’. Very delicate surgery, indeed.

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.

I have ben watching GH over 40 years and this storyline is the most frustrating and confusing to me. It’s going on to long!!!!!!!!

I have been watching for 3 years, I think. Well, since the OLTL trio came on board. So, I can’t really compare storylines as you are able, Diane. I am hooked, albeit I begrudgingly comment, at times. However, I also think it is bordering on SyFy programming and the metaphysical….let’s not forget supernatural. Perhaps, we love the story so much, we are just too eager finding out what the mystery is??….LOL.

What I know about GH I learn here. I can’t watch it. Too much violence. But this post and info? What a mess!

This story line has been going on long enough The writers are getting like the writers on Days of Our Lives .That show drags stoy lines forever . Finish this and finally let Jason come back . That is starting to drag on also

I don’t give a flying fluke either. Why is GH so hugely VIOLENT more than usual? It’s all plot and no character these days. And so super bloody. Everybody carries a gun or two or three. It’s ridiculous. ONE LIFE TO LIVE was never like this.

No, it was not, Lefty (lol-gangsta or left-handed?…couldn’t resist) . I love the moniker…adds mystery, LOL.
OLTL or AMC were tame in comparison. But, speaking of AMC, Josh Duhamel looks delish tonight,(Grammys).

I’m beginning to see why people dislike Taylor Swift. She is EVERYONES best friend except Kathy Perry AND she is dancing to everyones performance and it comes off as old and disturbing! She looks like an ostrich in a nice dress!

I was thinking the same thing. These are the same writers were ran OLTL? That show could tell stories bug and small with characters you cared about.

Not the case with GH. The FLUKE story is just one of many bad tales.

How did Taylor Swift get in here?
Maybe SHE is Fluke.

Maybe the Spencers are triplets. Same DNA.

I’ve been watching GH for years, this is the dumbest story line ever! Get it done and over with all ready. I have actually stopped watching it due to the Fluke story line and the violence that continues on the show. Isn’t the world a dark and crazy place already? All the repeated Mind Control story lines, really? It would be nice to have some fun episodes again.

Dr.O. says remains ARE Luke. yet Nathan says finger prints of fluke are Lukes. Duh, which one is it??????

Dr. O didn’t say the remains are Luke, She said IF they are, he’s been dead a while. She didn’t test DNA, she tested for how long the body the bones belonged to had been dead.

lol…..The writers are insulting EVERYONE’s intelligence!!

Not if we laugh over it as the snail-paced storyline moves along, Jme. I found it entertaining ….a mind-teaser. But, now? I think it is over the top, and, we have all had enough. All the different paths this s/l has taken is infuriatingly painful to watch. But, as lamentable as it is, I am still drawn to it. I do love GH.

See, when you write a good story and the things come together you go: AH HA! That’s why that happened, that fits there. You DON’T go: Um… what about X Y and Z? Because seriously, this story has changed so much since the beginning it’s tragic. 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. im confused more than ever..because only a fraction of characters would remember him.

Nothing revealed on a Friday afternoon ever turns out to be true.

I don’t care anymore who he is! This stupid story has dragged on WAY too long. It’s reaching the gestation period of an elephant.

People are so mean. The story went this long because of Tony’s back surgery. Love the story. We still don’t know how this happened to Luke. The whole show is sooooo good I have nothing negative to say.

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 told Alexis that Fluke approached him after 10 years in witness protection. Julian presumably went into WP after his death in 1990. So after 2000 he was approached by Fluke, fifteen usage ago. This is the same time period when Faison was brainwashing lucky for Helena. Faison and Fluke seemed like equal partners. Also Luke was not on during the cartel days, so what was the purpose of their involvement? On May 29, 2014 Fluke asked an orderly about the “person” in the padded cell and proceeded to enter. Why would an orderly be guarding an empty room? The next day Fluke tells Luke he is not Luke Spencer. Fast forward to Luke being fed pills by an orderly and then crushing them up. We saw characters on screen interacting with two different people. Even with the corpse at the house, Helena asks where did he even get the body. The man we knew as Bill Eckert “died” in 1993 but someone else emerged. And why would Fluke get so upset with Bobby badmouthing Bill? Luke hardly knew Eckert. The real Luke is out there stashed somewhere.

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 agree, Gert.

RC threw everything against the wall to see if it would stick! Word through the grapevine is they are hiring Brian Williams from NBC to write since he is so good at making up stories?

At least he can remember dates lol.

They better have the ‘real’ Luke stashed somewhere, because they are going to lose a lot of loyal viewers if they are trying to sell this story as this person actually being the ‘real’ Luke.

Time for this storyline to come to a conclusion. Enough, already.

Get it over and done with already – whoever he is……too much

what I want to know is how can sonny be a hero? He is a thug, a murderer, and his sperm is way too strong. time to retire this particular don and let the end of the mob be written in PC. Fluke – Luke I am beyond caring. time to check out of the PC hotel forever!

Thank you, Linda….again…a mobster is a mobster is a mobster. Only on Soapland does this happen.

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 is sam, liz or someone else.

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 snap).

This is at least as plausibe as the transgendered serial killer elder sister Pat, or the mind controlled Luke from Helena (come to think of it, Laura fell in love with one Cassidine through the stockholm syndrome–why not Helena as well?)

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

I am so confused. Mr. Fairman, I’d like your take on everything and opinion.

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?

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 —

Fluke – Luke , or Luke Fluke? END IT NOW! Someone was dressed up as luke! he was tied up! — So stop this madness..

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 totally snapped from reality, and went off the deep end.

Has Fluke really been Luke the whole time? Yes, no, maybe? I don’t know, and that’s why I watch, and will continue watching, and continue supporting a show that provides me 5 hours of entertainment each week.

I thought this past week was fantastic from start to finish. I usually watch a week’s worth of shows and get caught up every weekend, and I generally watch one or two episodes, then go do something, and come back later or the next day and finish. This weekend, I started with Monday and I was so engrossed and on the edge of my seat with everything that was going on, I just flew right through the entire week in one sitting.

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… long has it been? We Americans, are a most irrepressible, but impatient society…LOL.

A lead soap story runs around 16 weeks/four months .. and is timed for a sweeps closing..
Tony reentered end of November..
According to RC and FV the best is yet to come during the sweeps….

I’m excited for the next ‘chapter’ the ‘last page’..
Nothing is going to be as most think it will be , ya betcha!

What is important- this is Tony’s last big hurrah , he wants this story he loves this story it is his story is what he wants to leave behind after his exit….
And Tony has given most his life to GH and he damned well deserves to have it his way ..
I give Tony a huge BRAVO! and love that he loves the story!!!

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?
