GENERAL HOSPITAL: Fluke Reveals Plans For All Of Luke Spencer's Loved Ones! Did Shawn and Jordan Dig Up Bill Eckert?



General Hospital is playing up its unique brand and pace of its storytelling on the daytime drama landscape in a new promo entitled: “Forget Finales”.

During a sequence of upcoming scenes from the show, the voice-over announce relates:  “We don’t do finales, the GH action just keeps coming! Five-tastic days a week! The thrill ride starts now. General Hospital this week on ABC!”

Meanwhile in the promo, Fluke (Anthony Geary) is seen in front of a huge clock, uttering the words “Tick Tock!” This comes after Friday’s episode where Fluke tells Luke he has plans for Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) , Tracy (Jane Elliot), Lucas (Ryan Carnes), Lulu (Emme Rylan) and all of his loved ones aboard the Haunted Star! And this is juxtaposed with the action involving  Shawn (Sean Blakemore) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine)!  Shawn has just opened the casket in the cemetery of the believed-to-be-dead Bill Eckert! When he opens the coffin, the episode fades to black!

So, what do you think Shawn will find?  No body in the coffin?  Someone else in the coffin … or Bill Eckert? What do you think Fluke’s plans are for the Spencer clan?  Watch the new ABC promo after the jump, and then weigh-in!

I’m guessing the body in the coffin will be Luke and Bobbie’s sister Patricia and “Fluke” will be revealed to be Bill Eckert.

Good idea!

I’m thinking Fluke is Bill who is actually Luke’s twin and not cousin. Visiting the house… Talking about sins of the father… Why else would he look at the height growth marks on the door and get so upset? He’s angry about getting sent away and wants to get back at everyone in the family.

I would love for “Fluke” to be Valentine Cassadine the illegitimate son of Mikos that Helena, the psycho witch, is so afraid of. It would be fun to watch her cower in terror for once.

I said this before… I shall say it again. Fluke is a hybrid….a little bit of Victor, a little bit of Helena, a little bit of Luke and a little bit of Bill. Now, all we need to do is figure out where Dr. Frankenstein is…LOL.
In all seriousness, I am really confused. I think it’s Victor….then when I see Fluke’s dander get in a twist about Bill; how Fluke defends him….how he protects Bill. Well, then I think Fluke is Bill. I keep switching back and forth.

My husband believes that the fluke luke is really patricia who helena has been working with that would explain why Fluke is so hateful to bobby and not caring about any of the family maybe she had sex change to take over lukes life to take what should have been hers because none of them went looking for her when she dissapeared years ago

My guess is that Fluke is planning to blow up Luke’s entire family. Kewl. Boom!

As is said at a moment as this;
He’s going to bring the house down !!

(( this is soap delicious ! It doesn’t get any better than a GH sweeps!!

They don’t do finales? The action just keeps coming? LMAO.

Translation. Stuff just keeps happening,there’s no rhyme or reason, we just keep you guessing, because we don’t know how to tell a story.

I just want Fluke to take a bus/train or plane out of Port Charles and take Helena with him! No offense to Constance Towers. She is a hoot, but I am also tired of her brainwashing everyone!

Amen Lew S!

He speaks truth // soaps ”don’t do finales”
(the comment was about the soap not the story:)

and- all soaps, are a never ending story, they do not end (unless cancelled)

GH50: Absolutely right on! And I’m with you, too Lew! You can take the real Luke (is there one?) and Sonny out of town, too! That would be an improvement!

I suffer from Tony Geary obsession but this endless, meandering, write-by-numbers story is curing me of that malady.

This is awesome!!
Primetime in a daytime soap!!
It doesn’t get any better than General Hospital for entertainment!!

I still believe, no! I know RC and team will give us one helluva unexpected twist&turn on this one, it will be a shocker, and I love those!!
(people who read spoilers spoil it for themselves are missing out on the thrills)

This sweeps will rock as much if not more than the last sweeps, for GH!

and– the great Anthony’s portrayal of both Luke and Fluke is soap history/never forgotten.. Only works for Tony ”outstanding and BRAVO!!
the man is magic ..

Couldnt say it better Going for the ride Going to be fun Surprises galor

All these threats of violence and gun waving on GH is just silly. I feel no suspense whatsoever. 99% of the time nobody is killed or dies. Like when Jake/Jason was in the bedroom pointing a gun at Sam and Patrick. Does the writer want us to believe he might really kill them? I sure didn’t. Now the afterstory with Jake/Jason stealing Sam’s whatever it was then ending up in the hospital and Carly finding the gear in his bag he knows nothing about, i’m fine with that part of the story. It’s the threats of guns and violence in the story that got me to that point I don’t find believable. Give me my Y&R anyday.


Considering we only see the supposed real luke tied up in basement when hes in scenes with Fluke & not just by himself trying to escape leads me to believe fluke is really luke who has split personality or has had some kind of breakdown?Dont know if Luke’s missing sister will fit into this storyline but would love to see Kim Zimmer or Erica Slezak play Luke & Bobby’s sister.

I’m so with you on Erika Slezak playing Patricia…. at least I had hoped… she’s a mystery

this would make JimH and plenty more…. happy… I’d prefer her on DAYS, tho… as Laura… to bolster the show…. Oye! writers please ????? !!!!

see @Alan post above… what if Bill Eckert murdered Patricia

i’m along for the ride….

the ONE thing…. make that two

that is keeping up with :

1. Brandon Barash…. Johnny Z… god how we’ve missed thee…. handsome devilish rogue man about

altho… it bothered me a great deal… when Maxie is in bed again with Nathan… and she’s telling Nathan about Johnny Z…. something to the effect

“even when he’s honest/good… he’s bad…. ” like he doesn’t know any better

this doesn’t bode well …. I hope it’s not a sign… that Johnny Z is temporary

Brandon Barash is carrying the show…. I mean it
LOL… what with Nina, Franco, Ava, Morgan, MIA

got hand it to Billy Miller…. “Jake” is interesting… just doing his stuff for the reel and i’m taken

I don’t know… I don’t like that Carly is all up in his know how… that damned black duffel bag with his espionage trigger…. LOL

less is more GH production (w/Carly)… time to bring back the bigger guns…. and “Jake” and “Johnny” will join you

I love Johnny Zachara’ male pheromone gusto with Lulu and Maxie…. i’ d be the same way… caught w/abandon

@Patrick….Johnny Z has made quite the splash upon his release from Pentonville…I’ve been loving BB’s return engagement to Port Charles. He’s been all-around excellent in scenes featuring his past associates….my particular favorite was with Maxie….aka, Barash’s real-life wife, KS….their sweet “Harper” moment was beyond precious!!! Just a great big awwww…..I love those special little “insider” touches when the writers add them to the scripts.

Johnny and Maxie. They were great together. I just could have listened to their exchange forever. So cute, so sweet, such comfort. I wish we could see more of that. It was such a pleasure to witness such easy banter for once. No antagonistic remarks…Ahhhh.

That be cool if Erika Slezak was Patricia But it has to be a fluke I wont be happy if its in Lukes mind

wow and what would that mean for all the other stories…that would be a HOT DALLAS MESS…BUT A SHOCKER

Heather and her LSD…that would be a TRUE TRIP…and anger a WHOLE lot of people if he’s in Miscavage just tripping…LOL

Olivia had visions…what if Luke truly is just on a wild ride in his mind because of Heather???

Could you imagine?? Maybe that’s why KIKI was recast so quick..everything we’re watching has yet to happen…I CAN’T …But I can bet RC would…

I am feeling sorry for Dante because he kind of pales in comparison to Johnny. I haven’t seen balls this deflated since The New England Patriots.

What a great idea!!! Can you imagine Kim Zimmer as his sister? What a crazy time that would be.

What a thought-split personality Hm-m-m. You should get your own gig to write about. It certainly seemed as if it was Luke being rescued from the institution/hospital (whatever). Then all of a sudden it wasn’t. Well whether you are right or not – what an H of an idea!

I’m just tired of the real Luke being locked in the asylum and now the basement for a year. Bring home the real Luke, please.

The real Luke is boring. Think about it, he drinks, he mooches of the Q’s and he is a horrible father who goes on extended ‘Missions.” I love Fluke. He has balls! You never know what he is going to do next.

You do have a point, but they have made the real Luke rather limp after being locked-up for a year. Wouldn’t the real Luke be able to escape, instead of sitting tied to that chair in his stink for months?

I don’t mind Luke/Anthony. I just get the weebie-jeebies when I look at/in his eyes.
He is a seasoned, phenomenal actor….one of soapland’ s best. But, his eyes are creepy and eerie…whether in the Fluke mask or not.
Unlike Faison, who does not creep me out at all. I enjoy his crazy appearance and antics. Weirdly hilarious. Fo figure.

I am hoping there is a unique and unexpected twist to this story. If there really is 2 Luke’s it is odd the real Luke despite being drugged has not tried to break free. If this is a Luke DID story I would be disappointed that Luke/Fluke would be so homicidal especially to Bobbie & Lulu. Plus, unless I missed it I don’t recall Luke having issues before Fluke came on the scene so what was the trigger for the breakdown? I would prefer Fluke is Bill Eckert who was forced into the witness protection program and is angry the Spencer family ignored his memory and kids.

Fluke is really Luke…the coffin is empty because Helene had Bills body removed a long time ago…Helene is really Patricia…nothing will seriously happen to Luke’s loved ones…LuLu will probably end up missing, suffers amnesia, Johnny finds her and convinces her that she is his wife…Bobbi will get a few scratches and Dr.Lucas takes care of her boo boo’s…Fluke will remain Fluke and Tracy who is blinded will still think he is Luke…No, she didnt litterally become blinded…Tracy is blinded by love…lol

Whatever they are going to do they need to hurry and close this Fluke stuff getting tired of watching it. It’s boring and to keep bringing Helena back from the dead is boring too, I’ve been watching GH since 1963 when it first started and it has never taken this long to end an episode.

hi grandma d..
Helena has little on screen time.. she comes and goes and when she is on she is not the show.. there are many stories going on besides the little air time Helena has..
your wish will come true..
the Fluke/Luke story will have its end very very soon, a matter of days..

Tony has been off for 6 months recovering from his surgery, the story is not as long as it seem.. it was on hold 6 months with little inserts to keep it alive until his return….

I will say : in deference to Anthony Geary

I absolutely LOVE how he’s playing these dual “roles”

be it Fluke and /or Luke

like they are willing and daring each other to meld comeuppance shore up and fine tune the will of minds

I am appreciating his acting

LOL… alas… with most peoples fervent MOVE… she’s chess playing her own… Tracy should know the difference… she’s savvy contrite and able to discern relationship

having said this

this duo and pairing long live Port Charles resident resilience

I love Grandma. She always has freshly bakes oatmeal raisin cookies ready for me along with her very wise opinions about GH.

I agree. I think It’s Patricia in the coffin.
But as much as I love GH (and I do) I am over this storyline. It’s gone on too long & AG has too much screen time for a bad guy. In fact the show is getting pretty dark again, and I am not a fan of that.

Let’s put an end to this–and move on to other thins

it is at its’ end.. ending now.. (can’t people see that lol)
there are so many stories outside of the bad guys, lots of good guy stories going on..
something for everyone..
If GH ran on good guys, it would no longer be GH and I would be bored and I would not like that, then I would make the earth shake! .. lol

I wish you were pressing for DAYS as well

loving the adage and homage to serial

I’ve loved this stuff for near 35 plus years

I think Luke was brainwashed at miscavage under Helena’s orders. She and Luke always had a hate/hate cat and mouse game which escalated. I think he’s brain fried…if Luke were really in the basement she’d go down there to taunt him. I’m betting that’s it….regardless, Tony Geary is playing the dual roles to perfection.

The only wrinkle in that theory is Julian has stated many a time he first met, and began working for Fluke while in the witness protection program, long before the Miscavage incident, which means if he was brainwashed it had to be a long time ago. But I agree whatever is going on in the end Tony Geary is acting his you know what off.

What if all those years ago Luke was really the one shot, not Bill Eckert like everyone thought. …and Bill Eckert stole his life. Luke was revived and put into witness protection…is now out and back to reclaim his life. He is a womanizer…Luke was a rapist. Maybe….just maybe…they’re rewriting history and this is going to be the ultimate twist!

@Rebecca – That would be one ballsy rewrite of history. That would mean it was Eckert who raised Lulu & Lucky; who tried to rehabilitate Laura; who married Tracy several times; and who ran over Jake. I’m not against it. It just would be INSANE! I almost hope they do that.

Interesting theories…especially why Helena doesn’t visit Luke in basement. And maybe something about being in witness protection. It was about that time the Luke of Luke/Laura/adventure and fun ended, and we started to get a boring Luke, aka Bill Eckhart. But I don’t consider Luke of old a rapist. Yes he did rape Laura, and it was awful, but I would rather think it was a one-time madness.

It would be the ultimate rewrite and they may not want to mess around with the history…but it would explain why he knows everything about Luke’s life…and would avoid the backlash when everyone feels letdown that it wasn’t more than the obvious. The only thing that wouldn’t make sense is his ability to kill his family…unless he suffered a total break from reality or it’s more oh Helena’s machinations…

I have been watching since I was 13. I am now 37. I always heard about L and L so I watched their return. The storyline that kept me was Stone and Robin. I loved the show up until about 2008 and then it grated on my nerves. I am glad I stuck with it because since Eon and Frank took it over I am excited to watch again. It can be campy but I love Dark Shadows so camp is fun to me! So live GH!!!

Wondering if Victor Cassedine is Fluke? With Helena’s jealousy over Tracy I am beginning to think he is the culprit.

That was a strange reaction on Helena’s part….I noticed it, too, and it almost made me think that Fluke could be her late husband, Mikkos. That’s the problem with this storyline….inconsistent little moments are tossed into this scenario which make you go, wait a minute….that sounds like Stephan, or this one, or that one. I realize it is purely intentional to make us think—and to throw us off—but it’s truly become infuriating. Enough with the teasing….time to reveal the big truth, once and for all.

That’s what I originally thought, also,Gert. But, then, everyone started mentioning all these other possible ‘beings’……I am not very well versed in GH history, so, my guess would not be a good one. It can’t be Stavros…not smart or sane enough to pull off such a feat….but, Victor? Most definitely.

I’ve been wondering about Mikkos as well. After all, it seems no one is truly dead on GH.

That makes so much sense, Gert. I originally thought the same thing. Now, it seems more plausible, only because Helena caters to Fluke. She is so submissive and always tries to placate him. But, I am just judging from what I see presently….have no background knowledge.

Helena might be Patricia?

On a different topic, anyone have ideas about how Sonny, Julian, and Ava will eventually be released from prison. How can the show go on with these main characters in prison?

The best way for Sonny to be free is we find out AJ isn’t really dead, which means Sonny can’t be in jail for murdering a man who is still alive. Julian can get out since he never killed the man he confessed to killing and it shouldn’t be too hard to prove he is innocent and released. Ava — the only to get Ava off is we find out someone else came by after she left and they deliver the fatal shot to Connie—not Ava, so the point being when they want to get them out of the big house they will.

How would they do that, Mary? I distinctly remember, AJ’s spirit climbing the mansion’s steps into the light with his dead ancestors. Now, I’m second guessing myself, and at the same time, I tell myself…”It’s GH…everything and anything is possible”.


to get Ava and Sonny off is simple..
the recording AJ made via his phone has to disappear, that is the ticket out..

There could be new evidentiary developments where something criminal on the part of the judge is being held over his/her head….or the governor’s head. The latter has the power to pardon anyone within his/her jurisdiction, I believe. I am sure TPTB will think of something. Whatever it is will be shoved down our throats and there will be nothing for us to do but accept it.
The only other solution would be, as Mary suggests. Isn’t Julian in jail of his own volition?… protect himself from Fluke? This is something else that has me confused. Isn’t Julian worried that Fluke will target Julian’s family? Who is there to protect his loved ones?

Would it be possible for Connie to still be alive with amnesia or being held prisoner somewhere by one of Sonny’s enemies?

Actually, if Anna is found to be guilty of corruption, ALL of the PCPD’s past cases could become suspect & ALL the people who were convicted (or even plead guilty) under her watch could petition for retrials & be released in the interim, couldn’t they?

@KansasGuest. You are absolutely correct. But, I hope that will not be the case. Anna is one of the good guys.

Oh come on, guys!

It would not be the real Anna. It would have been Liesl Obrecht in an Anna mask! Everyone is wearing these magical masks and it explains everything away. (Rolling eyes)

I am so happy have a life that allows me to to watch my show (GH) for the wonderful show it is and enjoy the ride. I don’t have to do any driving. I can just sit back and enjoy it. Wish others could so the same and stop being so critical of something with which they have nothing to do. Enjoy it, people! It’s free.

Why is it men with phallic sounding names always seem so bossy and testosterone driven? I think I will ask my friends Rodd, Thorn, Ridge, Dick and Peter.

Harry….I am speechless. Soooo funny. How’d you come up with these comments? It must be a gift?…..LOL.


I have nothing left to say on this subject/storyline….which is sooooo unusual for me to keep my mouth shut. But, I am getting older by the minute and I am so tired of playing this cat-and-mouse game or hide and go seek. Know what I mean? Get it over with, please!!!!. Let’s move on to Julian and Olivia. What about Nina and Franco? Or, give us a story about-I-have-become-Dr. Lucas-Jones(?)-overnight storyline. Let the new doctor continue his relation with Brad. What happened to that storyline….better yet, let’s get Jake on the road to Elizabeth. No more Phoenix figurine ridiculousness.
I know Anthony/Luke is a fan-fave….but, mamma mia! Enough!

I’m love the storyline although it’s played out way to long . I’ve been hearing that fluke will be Patricia and that sounds just too stupid and beyond silly, I know they say as soap fans we should inbrace the “camp” side to it but this would be just plain cheap storytelling if you ask me, I hope their is a real sister and hope someone like the great Erica slezak gets cast.. Now for a question? So luke is tied up in the basement does he get fed?? Does he get bathroom break or are we suppose to believe he’s just left day in and out tied up? This sounds unrealistic n so not like Luke to just be left tied up n not try to escape. Luke is all about surviving and fighting to beat the odds , the real Luke wouldn’t just sit there like a defeated abuse waste of breath, where’s Luke survival story? They’ve made this to much bout fluke . Where’s are anti hero Luke ? He meads to show up in this storyline pronto.


Wait for it … 🙂

February is sweeps month. I’m pretty sure it will be wrapped up by the end of February. But, not in a pretty little bow. There have to be a few threads of complication that echo into the future. It is a soap after all!

“This sounds unrealistic”

Are we watching the same show? Ha! Ha! When has realism EVER been depicted on GH? 🙂

Jordan and Shawn will open the coffin on Monday and Bill Eckert WILL NOT be in there. The only thing in the coffin will be the acting lessons Ryan Paevey’s parents bought him when he was a kid!

We are expecting a blizzard tomorrow. We will be buried in 2 ft. of snow. If the generator does not kick in, I will be climbing the walls if I miss GH. Everything shuts down.

Snow sucks! I subscribe to Hulu JUST in case, snow, rain, wind or Obama takes over the air waves. I HAVE to see my soaps! [My grandmother would be so proud!]

Timmm, that was a good one. It made me think of Geraldo Rivera and Al Capone’s vaults. Just one big, drawn-out tease.

Chrystie, Gerardo is on “Celebrity Apprentice” and the dude is whacked out of his mind!

Yeah, I know, Timmm, that’s what made me think of it. That buffoon is certifiable.

Right on the mark, about Geraldo, Timmm. Did you catch him without his shirt on the Apprentice? He struts around the set ‘en dishabille’ under the misconception that he looks like a demigod. This guy is so full of himself…and randy. Yuck and double yuck.
Good simile about the grave, Chrystie.

CeeCee…Per your observations regarding Geraldo: Would he not be the perfect guy for Alexis? They seem to have certain characteristics in common. LOL.

He has always been a showboat. He is smart and does have a business sense BUT no common sense! When I’m 70 I would hope to be in that good of shape BUT I wouldnt be prancing around on TV in my underwear, I wouldnt have poofy looking hair that should have been cut and styled 20 years ago, and lastly, I wouldnt be running around wearing some god awful retro shades that were purchased at a John Lennon estate sale!!!

Well whatever they do I hope it means the Haunted Star is blown to kingdom come– I don’t know why Lulu is so invested in the boat, she is rarely ever there, I’ve never see any customers, and since I’ve been watching the show only uses the set when there is some kind of big showdown which usually ends in a shooting of some sort.

But I shouldn’t be surprised there are never any customers because who would want to go on that boat with the number of people who were shot and killed on it? It doesn’t make for a romantic evening, unless you are Nathan and Maxine who shared their first over a corpse. So Fluke please blow the thing up and lets move on.

that should read Nathan and Maxine who shared their first kiss over a corpse

Amen! Its funny how as soon as Johnny reappeared the Haunted Star was open for business with no customers! I like Johnny and Lulu together, though.

Fact One: He comments every time he goes to the basement it stinks. Fact two: no one has ever witnessed the two together. Solution Dante will discover a dead body sitting in a chair in the basement. Think Norman Bates it has been Luke all along. The grave will be empty and Bill Eckert is the decomposed body in the basement. I just think RC has to at this point get a major pay off so it has to be something wild and crazy!

That is a good theory ..
Luke has no bathroom and the stink could be coming from his pants .. lol

I had that same thought, yesterday…a little too late, right, Su? Maybe there’s a hole in the chair and another in Luke’s pants. Has anyone noticed a bucket or something under the chair? …lol.

But, regardless of that notion, if we are to assume that Luke on the chair is really Bill’s corpse, then the smell would be from rotting flesh?????

Yet, if Bill has been dead for years, then it would just be a sack of bones sitting on that chair.

You know, I am sick of this story. But, as Dan points out, we moan and groan about this endless torture of not getting down to the nitty gritty, yet we watch. Well, I, for one, am starting to get into it. As LAUGH-IN’S Arte Johnson would say, “Veeery intereeesting”! ( I watched every single episode on the collection).

So, you are saying that Fluke has been the real Luke, all along? Interesting concept. Could it be that Helena did a number on real Luke’s mind? She has altered it so that Luke thinks he’s Fluke? Who is in the basement? Bill Eckert? Does that mean that Bill/Luke tied in the chair is nothing but a figment of Fluke/Luke’s skewed imagination?…. That he is really Bill’s corpse? Hmmm…..Holy moly, what did I just say? I don’t even make sense to myself.

Several of us have been discussing Fluke has been Luke all this time but i love The substitute’s Norman Bates idea that its Bill’s corpse sitting in the chair instead of an empty one…now we got to discuss who will be the screamer who finds the body: Tracy, Lulu, Bobbi or Micheal???…lol

Thanks, jimh. I’m starting to get a grip on the situation. I was lost the, for a bit. LOL. later.

Great theory!

Helena seen/knows fluke and she knows there’s something/someone in the basement..

Interesting Norman Bates idea. That would make me think this is a deranged, real Luke, altered by Helena’s experiments when held captive by her, and now programmed like Jake/Jason. She just brought forward the horrible memories real Luke experienced in the basement at the hands of his father, with the baseball bat? And he’s acting out with a replica. So the stink is a dead body. But I can’t reconcile even real, deranged Luke wanting to kill his beloved Bobbie or Lulu. Oh well, GH writers bring it on.

I really love this theory. If it were done right, it could be worth waiting for the story to play out. I’m ready for the reveal.

Great Theory! I really like it and the split personality thing mentioned in comment above. NOW I just hope they wind this thing up already – it’s time to move on.

You were right on all counts, the substitute. You deserve a congratulations….

Phyllis from y and r is playing her part really excellent

Yes she is and the new Adam is hitting it out of the ballpark too (and he didn’t have to have his balls deflated to do so).

Not a Patriots fan then, Harry???? LOL. But you are right about JH as new Adam…..he is very good. I only wish GH had been smart enough to cast him first… the not-dead AJ! Although I’m loath to see anyone other than Sean Kanan play the role, I do believe I could make the exception for Justin….or Casper Van Dien! He began his career on daytime (OLTL) but I don’t know if he would deign to do it now….but I wish he would!

We all said Justin would be great as Adam…I like him even better than Muhney.

We love the Patriots in this house !!! Nonetheless, I appreciate the joke, Harry.

Mary, you are right about Julian but Sonny would still have to go to jail for shooting AJ even if he isn’t dead. I thought that maybe somebody did go in to the hospital and finish AJ off….maybe Rosalie….working for Helena. Ava also has admitted shooting Connie so she has to do jail time for at least that.

I have a feeling that Sonny and Julian will break out, go to Fluke’s party and save everyone and then get off for time served.

Linda, that sounds feasible. It makes much more sense than anything else, so far.

RC has a law degree, he is a lawyer ..
He has it planned how all will be set free a year ahead of us..
It is a soap and will not be right on, of course.. but RC will ballpark it..
(( its all only make believe)) 🙂

I must add, Linda, that it will be so unfair and disappointing,if it turns out, that Sonny will emerge the hero when all is said and done. Again, he will get away with murder!!

@Shay…hello, there.
I had no idea you were a Y&R fan, Shay…..yeahhhhyyyyy !!!!!

CeeCee….I haven’t been a Y&R fan in years….I’ve just occasionally peered in on “new Adam” since JH took over the role. I loved him on Revenge…so I’m glad he is being well-accepted in this recast….but I still wish he were on GH!

Well since Sonny’s deal was for murder, if AJ was still alive he would still be let out for that charge, then it would be up to the DA to decide whether he would want to go for another trail on attempted murder charges– which Sonny wouldn’t plead guilty to since Carly has gotten her immunity and the evidence against him would disappear I bet. And the same with Ava, yes she shot Connie, but if someone else came in after ward shot her again and that was the fatal wound not Ava’s– she would be released on the charge she was convicted on and then they would need to do another trail on the charge of attempted murder.

I don’t know if that is the route they would take, but eventually these people are going to get out of jail at some point, for some reason. I guess deep down I haven’t given up hope that Monica faked AJ’s death and we will find out he is still alive despite the stair climb to heaven.

Could Monica really fake AJ’s death once again??? Yes, but please! She already did that once. I really hope it doesn’t go that way.

I do. I’d be willing to suspend my disbelief even further to have AJ back. Still, unfortunately even in the furthest realm of possibilities we still wouldn’t have Sean Kanan back…and Billy Warlock looks nothing like Michael…but I could think of a few actors who could fit the bill should the seemingly not happening happen.

If it turned out that Ava and Sonny were framed and someone was wearing an Ava or Sonny mask and the real Ava and Sonny (can’t believe I am having to talk like this) are actually in jail, then they would probably be exonerated of their crimes and the jail time would count as time served (like Linda said). I really do not see any other way out of this situation unless you make the two innocent – or go from ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK to PRISON BREAK and finally THE FUGITIVE.

I would still like to believe that the majority of the events that happened last year will turn out to be a dream (like DALLAS). It would solve so much nonsense that was written.

I’m still hanging on to my idea that Fluke is Pat Spencer! I know, a transgender villain on daytime is as likely as the haters taking a day off from commenting.

I think Fluke is Pat Spencer too. I thought that since they mentioned Pat’s existence.

I have a ton of episodes on my DVR that I have yet to watch-no desire. I’m so disappointed in General Hospital. It’s too cartoonish and outlandish. I remember that in the 80’s there was the “freezing of the world,” Casey the Alien, etc.-which I didn’t care to watch either. I miss the Claire Labine era-of the Quartermaine’s, L&B Records, Brenda, Sonny, Ned, Lois, etc. I miss having a supercouple to root for, “cliff-hanger” Fridays, romances, excitement…

Well, dmr
it is no longer the 80’s.. times have changed as have the writers..
GH rocks.. as close a soap could get to prime time and far from ”cartoonish” ..
too bad, you missed out on some really good stuff ..

I am with you, dmr, although the only plots that are interesting to me on GH right now are the truce between Sonny and Julian (but the addition of Franco ruined that the last few episodes) and Lucas being at the hospital. To a lesser extent having Brandon Barash back because he is easy on the eyes and can act. Other than that, most of the characters are, like you said, cartoonish and unbelievable in their naivete.

As a side note, I used to adore Roger Howarth, but now I cringe when he is on screen as Franco. Kill off Franco and bring him back as Todd Manning now that OLTL is dead in the water again. The same for Michelle Stafford. I cannot stand Nina and the overacting. The character is pointless.

Dont like the actor James Franco, dont like the character Franco, and Roger as Franco is an embarrassment! What a waste of good talent! Same for Michelle Stafford. They have painted such a talented actress into a one dimensional corner!

Chrystie and Timmm,
I finally caught up on the show. Yesterday was a snow day. We got close to two feet of snow. I was pretty bored watching it. Had it on in the background. I always enjoy Sonny (hate the fact that he betrayed Morgan and slept with Ava. So much for loyalty. Nevermind that he killed AJ). Love Julian.

I agree about Franco. I love Roger Howarth; but, I wish that they created a new character for him-a Quartermaine. Not sure what the point is to have Nina Clay remain on the canvas. Silas has hardly been seen in the last few weeks.

I think that after Fluke’s party-the cast will be skimmed a little. That will help. With a cast so large, storylines get lost and its hard to keep track of what happened a month ago.

Speaking of the past, there have been no reference to the Mary Mae Ward /Edward Quartermaine/offspring story has never been mentioned. Thought it would have been brought up when they were looking for possible heirs to Quartermaines when they were trying to stack ELQ board. Even though I love Lila and Edward, there were some lovely moments between Edward and Mary Mae during WW2when they met.

Mary Mae reminds of when Luke’s club was open and the performances from Eddie Maine (Ned) and Mary Mae. Great memories, then! I remember rushing home from high school and watching General Hospital while doing my Algebra homework!

Laura would have recognized that Fluke was not Luke in a NewYork minute! Gus’s no one knows hon better…soul mates forever!

Laura was catatonic for years. Couldn’t even recognize her own daughter. So, that’s really doubtful.

She didn’t recognize Lulu because she had grown up! She would absolutely recognize Luke…

BTW,when she woke up and Luke was in the room,she recognized him immediately!

okay, how about this? Helena stole Bill Eckert’s body and infused it (great pic) with Stavros Cassadine’s soul.

Stavros, as most of the Cassadines, does not have a soul. The devil has it in his possession. (Catechism 101).

Here’s a new idea bordering on the “Fluke” is “Luke” theory. What if he is doing a Pam Ewing dream and the whole last year was a dream?! That would mean no Nina, no Nathan (if you count December 2013), no Levi, and especially none of Nina’s disgusting ripping of Ava’s baby from her womb.

There was a lot of crap last year that could be gone if Luke is just dreaming or maybe it’s not even Tracy. Maybe it’s Laura or some other relative dreaming this is happening to him. SOMETHING has to be a dream because there is NO WAY those magical, shape-shifting, voice altering masks can be explained other than a dream. 🙂

okay this was fun for 3 /4 months…not so much anymore…when is this luke/bill storyline going to end. and is anthony Gerary leaving GH

Fluke is…. ANTHONY ZACARA. Remember, the whole Fluke thing originally was about revenge against Sonny. Remember the computer video of Fluke with a big vase of flowers next to him, remember Fluke at the Q’s taking flowers out of the vase for his lapel. Anthony Z. loved his flowers. I believe Fluke is Anthony Z, Luke in cellar is real Luke, and the ALIVE Bill Eckhart will appear very soon in his orig. Bill E. hair and look. There will be a scene with 3 Anthony Gearys!!! I’ve thought this for a long time.

I said the same thing Fluke is Anthony Zacara and I think that Johnny is in on it. Anthony was my first thought.
Did we spell Zacara right? LOL…?

GH spells it this way…ZACCHARA, which is actually misspelled. It is an Italian surname, thus the correct spelling is…ZACCARA. In the Italian language, one never ever sees the letter H between the letter C and the hard vowels A, O, or U. It is a complete no-no. There is a grammatical explanation for it. One must master the language to appreciate the reasoning. But, who cares, right? LOL. We must go with what TPTB dictate…..I say this as I grit my teeth. LOL.

A lot of people talking about how much they don’t like this storyline, and how they wish it would end, but that hasn’t stopped everyone from weighing in on who they think Fluke really is, lol. I love reading everyone’s theories. Some good possibilities, some off the wall possibilities, and everything in between.

But with 110 posts in this thread and counting, that tells me that a lot of people are invested in this story, and interested in how it plays out, whether they wanna admit it or not.

There hasn’t been anything “paint by numbers” with this storyline. Paint by numbers would have seen Fluke revealed as Jerry Jacks or Faison, or some other garden variety GH villian, and the story wrapped up months ago. This story, just when you think you have everything figured out, they take you in another direction. And I personally love stories like that. The ones that keep you guessing. I’m enjoying it very much, although I do hope they’re moving to a conclusion sooner rather than later.

Tony Geary should have his 8th Emmy on the mantle when all is said and done, and it will be very well deserved. His performance over the past year has been the icing on the cake, further cementing his status in my view, as the greatest actor in daytime television history.

He is an excellent actor. In all my years of watching I don’t remember him turning I in a performance like this….maybe I just don’t remember. I don’t know if he can top himself on GH…if he’ll ever get another story of this magnitude. He did say he wanted to go out with a bang in a blaze of glory….just dawned on me…maybe he gets blown up on the boat…and it’s only after his death that we learn the truth…

Hiding in plain sight.

It’s probably somebody we already know. Right in front of our faces. That would be a true GH twist.


Sly Eckert (Michael Muhney) maybe??? This is GH, you never know.

Great post, Sly….excellent deduction!

Thank You… CeeCee.


I love Justin Hartley. He has topped Muhney, in my eyes, so far. He is such a natural. I had my doubts when Y&R was recasting Adam, but when I heard it would be JH, I was elated. I knew he would not disappoint in the role. ….not too shabby looking either.
BTW, I did reply on your Geraldo reply to my comment, but, I suppose my expressed phraseology was too risque’ for virgin ears….LOL. I bet all my posts get examined with a fine-toothed comb. So many are pulverized !!!!…LOL. That’s ok…it’s “their” prerogative and job. I would be ‘en garde’, as well, when it came to my writing….triple LOL.

General Hospital

Eva LaRue Makes Her ‘General Hospital’ Debut: What Were Your First Impressions of Natalia Rogers-Ramirez?

On the Monday, February 26th episode of General Hospital, former All My Children favorite, Eva LaRue (ex-Maria Santos), made her first appearance in her new recurring role of Blaze’s (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) mother, Natalia Rogers-Ramirez.

In key scenes, as Kristina (Kate Mansi) and Blaze are happy after spending the night together, Kristina is in for a shock when she is still in bed and the door opens and Blaze’s mother, Natalia strolls in seemingly oblivious to walked she just walked in.

Natalia announces, “Alison, Mommy’s here!” Then, Natalia looks over and sees Kristina in bed and both women are a bit startled. Kristina introduces herself to “Mrs. Rogers-Ramirez.” However, Natalia corrects her and says it’s “Miss.”

Next, Blaze walks into the room still in her robe. She is very shocked that her mother arrived in Port Charles much earlier than expected. Natalia wants an explanation of just what she walked in on. It is then, Kristina concocts a story and explains they had a girls’ night, and it got late so Alison let her crash.

Natalia seems to buy into Kristina’s lies. Blaze starts to argue with her mother over the non-vegan sandals her mother brought her from Puerto Rico and her grandmother’s pudding, which she has told her in the past she dislikes. Kristina pipes in that the reason Alison doesn’t like it, is because of the texture and the same goes for avocado and flan. Natalia says she thinks she knows her own daughter.

Then, Blaze gets more upset and asks Kristina to stay and be by her side. Blaze announces that she and Kristina are more than just friends. We already know that Natalia is from a very conservative background, so we anticipate on tomorrow’s episode of GH, she won’t approve finding out her daughter is gay. Stay-tuned.

So, were you happy to see Eva LaRue back on daytime and now on General Hospital? What were you first impressions of her new character Natalia Rogers-Ramirez? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first, check out the scenes from her arrival below,

General Hospital’s William Lipton to Star in Music Drama Series ‘The Runarounds’ From ‘Outer Banks’ Creators

This sounds like a perfect starring vehicle for the multi-talented William Lipton (Cameron Webber), who recently made a brief return to General Hospital for his best friend, Spencer Cassadine’s (the exited Nicholas Chavez) gravesite memorial service.

Now comes word that Lipton is set to star in a new series in the works entitled The Runarounds. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because The Runarounds is the name of the band seen in season three of Netflix’s popular series, Outer Banks. 

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Amazon has given the green light to an eight-episode, straight-to-series order for The Runarounds which premise features the story of a post-high school band as they try to make it big.

The fictional drama is inspired by the real life band of the same name and will star its group’s members: William Lipton, Axel Ellis, Jeremy Yun, Zendé Murdock and Jesse Golliher.

The Runarounds will be set and film in Wilmington, North Carolina, where Outer Banks was also shot. Skydance Television is the studio behind the series. Outer Banks creators Josh Pate, Joshua Pate, and Shannon Burke will bring this project to life.

Lipton took to his Instagram on Monday, once the news of the series was revealed, expressing, “Where are we going, fellas? To the top, Johnny!” Immediately GH co-stars past and present shared their congratulations to William including: Sydney Mikayla (ex-Trina Robinson) and Enzo De Angelis, who plays Lipton’s brother, Aiden on GH.


In a statement, Vernon Sanders, head of television at Amazon MGM Studios, expressed: “When we first met with Jonas and Skydance about The Runarounds, it was immediately clear that they brought us a special show featuring an incredibly talented cast and real-life band. We are very much looking forward to sharing the exhilarating journey of The Runarounds with our global Prime Video customers.”

The Runarounds were actually formed as a band back in 2021, when Jonas Pate issued a casting call looking for a group to appear on Outer Banks. The group first performed together when they played for Pate ahead of appearing in season three after being selected from a more than 5,000 musicians who responded to the call.

No word yet on when The Runarounds will be released.

So, excited for this opportunity for William Lipton to star in this music drama? Hope he returns to GH down the line? Comment below.
