GENERAL HOSPITAL: "Hello Laura and Luke. Welcome Back To The Triple L!"

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On Friday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, Luke (Tony Geary) and Laura (Genie Francis) take a stroll down memory lane when they land back in British Columbia and the diner that they once ran, The Triple L! Laura begins to say how much she loved the place, because at that point they were in one spot and not on the run.  (Even though they were in hiding!)

Next, Laura asks Luke if he was unhappy during the times he could not be on the run to which the two shared a heartfelt moment and viewers again caught a glimpse of the magic of longtime scenes partners Francis and Geary.

As the episode came to its conclusion, and as the two parents hope for clues will lead them to find their son Lucky (Jonathan Jackson) who is in danger, Laura’s cell phone rings and the voice at the other end, which sounds like a male’s voice says, “Hello Laura and Luke. Welcome back to the Triple L!”   But, whose voice is it?  Which enemy from Luke and Laura’s past is behind Lucky’s disappearance?  In the final moments, someone walks into the diner and Luke can’t believe who it is!

So what did you think about the scenes today between Tony and Genie? Who do you think is the voice pulling the strings in this final Luke and Laura adventure?  Who came in the door …  could it be Holly (Emma Samms)? Comment below!

well,
they brought Holly back for a reason, so yah she has Lucky..

I don’t think Holly is behind Lucky’s kidnapping, although I do think it’s her at the door to the diner. My hunch is that Holly is looking for Ethan, who was kidnapped just like Lucky. Remember that Luke and Laura were living in British Colombia when hiding from Frank Smith. His daughter, Jennifer Smith, is still out there. She was obsessed with Luke… very strong possibility it’s her with revenge on her mind and the lives of Luke’s sons used as her leverage.

Joel, I think you’re right. But the previews underscores a female voice telling Luke to put the gun down if he wants to see his son alive.
The voice we hear has no British accent.

Joel
Guest

I hadn’t seen the preview with the non-British female voice, which leads me to believe it is Jennifer Smith.

I think it is Jennifer Smith too. Only problem with this-if it is a recast, it won’t mean much to the fans or to the history of the show-IMO. I also think Ethan was kidnapped and that Holly will be helping Luke and Laura trying to find the missing boys.

Joe

I think it’s Holly but she’s not the kidnapper. I think the kidnapper also has Ethan. Something tells me that the crazy freak Jennifer Smith is back…Roseanne or Sally Struthers!

I missed Thursday and only saw the last half of Friday, so maybe they explained this: don’t I remember the Triple L exploding as Luke and Laura went back on the run and headed back to Port Chuck? I do love this anyway; a great way to relive the past glory, as TG exits.

The Triple L did not explode..
The truck exploded..

the video was posted on RC’s twitter.. the before and after the explosion ..
After the explosion of the truck the Triple L was not damaged.

I really do hope… that my idea… that Nikolas… is behind all this… and that … Luke … takes the fall… and to his grave… that Laura and Lucky are reunited… and move

Lucky exits… and Laura… with Nikolas… Spence.. mom, Lesley… with…

ta-da

Stephen Nichols… Stefan Cassadine… helm… Port Charles.. and take over abound…
intrigue and mystique aplenty

as only these actors can

Stefan, Laura, Nikolas, Spence, Lesley, (my first choice, Britta, near first, Hayden, and if need be, Liz.. she’s so much better with Jake… to carry with…)

let it be : FV / RC

Nik and the Q’s is truly more exciting, at this point anyways..

Harry
Guest

Su000, you can see that you find them boring but to make a blanket statement that they are boring is just wrong. Try and stating your opinion as just that–an opinion and not as a fact.
I found them to be very interesting and yes, they still have sparks. However, these are internal sparks not visible or obvious to the eye.
Something tells me you don’t appreciate subtlety.

Oh, Harry. I need to ask my husband what dry humping means. Never heard the term before, but it sounds kinky-naughty. LOL.

Oh why, su000, because Laura is NEW… to you? The BEST scenes on Friday were by far Laura & Luke, such rich history. Enjoy it… relish in it… and, as you say all the time… wait for it! 😛

Harry
Guest
Harry

Jeremy–yes!
I fast forwarded through those repugnant scenes which involved Denise/Ava dry humping Morgan as well as anything involving Kiki just to get to the Luke and Laura scenes.
For me, it was very very compelling and it involved good character writing as well as good acting.

hey Jeremy 🙂
yah from someone who was not there through the Luke and Laura years, I’m not feeling it ..
however! Luke is awesome, I have seen and loved him for many years..

Great to see you are having a great time watching the two once again 🙂

@su. Yes, I do not get these two together. But, I absolutely love Laura. I FEEL her. It is Luke that is out of place. She will bring it home for me with someone else. You, on the other hand, love Luke. I do not. We are half way there, Girl. However, you have the right to express your feelings and no one has the right to suppress them for you. It would be a boring world if we all loved the same thing. I, for one, enjoy your posts…and, sparring with you. Sometimes we agree, sometimes we do not.… Read more »

Awwww, Jim. We may talk about good looks, but deep down, it is what’s inside that counts. Sure, the first thing that attracts is physical appearance, but all that beauty, which one may possess, becomes as ugly as one’s bad disposition.

What did I think of the Luke and Laura scenes? I think they were things of beauty–bittersweet, sad and yet powerful as memories do afford a powerful whallop. I loved Luke and Laura looking at the picture of themselves with ten year old Lucky. Also, appreciated Luke telling Laura that he had no regrets about his life with her and that she made him feel whole. I had some trepidation about the Luke and Laura scenes but so far they have been handled deftly as those two prove that they still have that inexplicable and intangible magic. Sorry, Luke never… Read more »

Harry, hi ..
not pushing your button, sigh but-
Luke looks like he could be Laura’s father and that is a fact..
They now look weird together, but then again they are not a romantic sexy couple they are just on a journey together..

Luke and Tracy rock…!!

Timmm

Luke and Tracy rock because they look, age wise, like a couple but L&L were adventurous together. Tracy and Luke look like they should be sitting in the Q’s living room having a martini. L&L had zest!

I loved L&L’s scenes at the Triple L. I think what is wrong with some of the other posters is that they didnt follow L&L all the way from the beginning. If you are just being introduced to them and just not reading about their history, yes Friday’s show with their scenes could have come off a little boring. Also, Tony was a lot older than Genie when they arrived. Therefore, Tony does look to be old enough to be Genie’s father. Nothing can be done. It does happen in real life.

Anna and Luke’s farewell scene would be boring to those who didn’t know one of their characters prior to their good-bye…or didn’t watch their friendship/short romantic relationship. Likewise, the reason Luke and Laura work is because those of us who knew them together feel their bond, their shared history. The scene didn’t have to be dynamic, action-packed; it was two characters with a rich, emotionally charged past together again on-screen. And, like Harry, seeing the picture of Luke, Laura and young Lucky was a nice touch of nostalgia and shows just how far back this couple goes. As for the… Read more »

Yeah, that’s true…Britt’s hand might be dipping into daddy’s crazy, evil world. But, the opposite could also be true. She may warn Luke and Laura that her father has Lucky ….and, give their location.

WARNING LONG POST I’m thinking Holly’s appearance has more to do with Ethan than Lucky. In any case, I can’t wait for Laura to share scenes with Holly. Genie Francis mentioned that she enjoyed these scenes as it was finally an opportunity for these two characters to hash out some things. Laura and Holly have not really shared many scenes at all throughout the years as long-time viewers know, just like Laura and Anna have not. Just take a look at the timeline of GH for these characters: Shortly after Luke and Laura were married, “Ms. Star Eyes” Laura disappeared… Read more »

And to Timm’s post, yes I agree that if you weren’t there to watch the ethereal magic that was Luke and Laura, these scenes might be dull to you.
This speaks to Kay’s point that flashbacks would have been very effective.

I actually came back for the day to watch but, when Luke said he had no regrets I gagged Tony G has ruined the romance with his Luke never loved laura and he wants tracy..TG has ruined L&L . Genie Francis sure is nice to see her, and like the others have said, Could be Holly at the door ready to rescue Lucky and Ethan. I will watch the rescue and I am looking forward to seeing JJ and NP.

Well, Su00, as you so like to tell people, it’s a soap. Of course Laura had to come in during the engagement party because that is what is called conflict.
Moreover, Laura did not know she was walking on their engagement party.
Tracy is not the love of Luke’s life, Laura is.

dear Harry..
In the past two decades, Tracy is Luke’s love of his life as he emotionally handed his heart to Tracy, their love rang bells in heaven….

Luke and Laura are has-beens and they will not get giggly sexy or hotty lovey dovey, they are all done but the wiping ..

Tracy and Luke are age appropriate and they have saved each other many time, they have a good enduring strong love..

Luke and Tracy, forever !!

Harry
Guest

As one button pusher said to another, “I get you.”
Su00, Tracy and Luke have not been involved for twenty years.
I would have to go back to trace their history but it’s more like ten years.
I love Tracy–I really do. But she and Luke are just really good buddies–I feel that they have no chemistry as romantic partners.
And how many times has he thrown her over making her feel like leftovers? Too many times to mention.

SU000, it’s fine if you don’t like Laura and Luke together. But, I think what everyone is trying to get through to you, is that General Hospital probably wouldn’t even be on the air today if it weren’t for the Luke and Laura storyline/history. Do you grasp that? Respect the history please.

@Harry…..With her fabulous figure, Sam should be one of the easiest characters to attractively attire on GH, and yet, such is seldom the case…..you have nailed her too-often raggedy Jennifer Beals look to a “t!” As for DenAva….I guess the GH wardrobe department hit the closing sales at Frederick’s of Hollywood retail stores for all of her tacky tartwear……and while they were there, I’m sure they also found some bondage-themed bustiers and other décolletage-baring blouses for Alexis….she really goes for that sort of stuff—the lower-cut, the better!

I hear you about the flashbacks….they add such a rich sense of history to the iconic characters’ stories, and particularly should be used in TG’s send-off. As for your notion of “letting him be,” I do agree to a certain extent…we have verbally flogged “Fluke” and lashed out at Luke long enough….and should now simply enjoy Geary’s swansong, come what may.

Off with the heads of the GH wardrobe department! They put Sam in the most inexplicably God awful attire which makes her look like a Flashdance threw up all over her. Genie Francis has lost all kinds of weight and looks terrific but they dress her in dreary monochromatic black and here it is summer time. Ava/Denise looks like a cheap hooker from the streets of London and Nina’s form fitting dresses bring out her already prominent reptilian presence.

Without Luke and Laura there would be a real good chance GH wouldn’t be here today. We’ve all had times we wanted to ff through some stories/actors. So for those who are bored, or “just don’t get it,” relax. I’m sure, or at least hopeful, RC will follow through with an exciting finale to the Luke/Tony story. Just like he did with the b/w flashback. And if all, or any, of the Tony/Genie bad feelings are true it sure isn’t showing up so far. And great that Genie agreed to come back. But I will agree with some that it… Read more »

I agree, Rose.
I also think K/Kay makes a good point when she suggests flashbacks would have really enhanced the Luke and Laura reunion while also underscoring their intangible magic for viewers who did not watch during the 80’s.
I know, I know—some of you weren’t even born yet and it’s not your fault.
Yes, flashbacks would be really nice. For instance, it would be lovely to see Luke and Laura dancing the waltz during the time they were hiding out in the department store.

That’s right, Harry…I wasn’t born during that memorable time. But, I still love romance.
Oh, by the by. Here’s another far-fetched semi-storyline seemingly creeping onto the GH stage. Jennifer Smith, whomever the heck she is, want Luke to spend one night with her in exchange for Lucky. Really? What younger, attractive and sexy woman in her right mind would want to touch Luke? He looks like the walking dead. Spare me, please. He better stock up on those booster pills, and ingest a STIFF dose.

Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson Share Disagreement with Each Other Over Vaccine Mandate; Will Continue ‘Stone Cold and the Jackal’ Shows In 2022

On the latest episode of their That’s Awesome podcast with Steve and Bradford, released over the Thanksgiving holiday, General Hospital’s Bradford Anderson (Spinelli) and Steve Burton (Ex-Jason Morgan) took some moments to address how Steve’s decision to not adhere to the ABC and GH Covid-19 vaccine mandate (which caused the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star to be let go from the show) would affect their live shows, podcasts, content moving forward, as well as if it has caused a riff in their friendship.

When addressing listeners of the podcast, Anderson shared the the two would continue on with their projects, but that he disagreed with Burton’s decision to not follow the GH vaccine mandate.

Bradford expressed: “If you know us, and know are brand, if you will, it’s built on friendships, and like all friends, we have disagreements.  I disagree with Steve’s decision and he knows that. But over are years of friendships, we have had plenty of discussions about this and other topics, and sometimes we agree and sometimes we don’t, but at the end of the day we are still friends.”

Steve added: “We usually don’t get into decisive things on the show.  Look, I have a right to believe in what I want, and you have a right to believe in what you want, and that’s what makes this country great and we have never been about division.”  In addition, Steve was clear that he has not agreed to any interviews at this time on the subject of his exit, and that he is already moving on, sharing: “I am just grateful for my time at General Hospital and the people and the friendships I have made there, especially with the fans.  I have had an incredible life. Listen, I’m OK. I’m at peace. I ‘m moving forward and I am excited about it.  Like I said in my video, when one door closes, multiple doors open, and that’s what happened already.  I’ve gotten a lot of requests for interviews that I don’t want to do, because I don’t want division … that’s the bottom line.”

Look for Anderson and Burton to hit the road in 2022 and continue with their successful Stone Cold and the Jackal live comedy show and appearances.

What did you think about how Steve and Bradford addressed their disagreement on the vaccine mandate within the podcast? Will you be seeing Steve and Bradford live if they come to your town in 2022? Comment below.

Steve Burton Confirms His Exit From General Hospital

Steve Burton has spoken and after so much speculation, the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star has confirmed he is out as General Hospital’s Jason Morgan.

In his post on his Instagram account on Tuesday, Steve shared that he was let go by the ABC daytime drama series due to their vaccine mandate and that even though he applied for medical and religious exemptions those were denied.  Thus, he has to exit his role.

In story, viewers saw on Monday, that Jason is MIA from being under the rubble of the cave that collapsed in Jason’s attempt to apprehend Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his post, Burton shared the following: “I know there has been a lot of rumors and speculations about me and General Hospital and I wanted you to hear it from me, personally. Unfortunately, General Hospital has let me go because of the vaccine mandate. I did apply for my medical and religious exemptions and both of those were denied, which, you know, hurts, but, this is also about personal freedom to me. I don’t think anyone should lose their livelihood over this. But with that being said, you know me. I’ll always be grateful for my time at General Hospital I love it there. I grew up there. I grew up with some of you, so I will always be grateful and I believe when one door closes multiple doors open. That’s always been my perspective, so I am excited to see what the future brings. ”

Steve went on to say, “Maybe one day when these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan. That would be an honor, and if not, I am going to take this amazing experience, move forward and be forever grateful. I have got to say, that I am forever grateful for your love and your support over the years. It means so much to me. Thank you. I don’t know when my last airdate is. It may have aired or it might be tomorrow or the next day. I am not sure. I want you guys to have an awesome Thanksgiving. I know it is hard, maybe, in this type of situation to be thankful or grateful, but we have so many things to be thankful about. Being grateful really is the key. Love you guys.”

Ingo Rademacher Wraps His Run as General Hospital’s Jax

During today’s Monday, November 22nd episode of General Hospital, Ingo Rademacher made his exit as Jasper Jacks.

The actor who is out at the ABC daytime drama series for not adhering and disagreeing to the GH and ABC Covid-19 vaccination mandate, saw his character written-out when Jax shared his final scenes with Laura Wright’s Carly and Cynthia Watros’ Nina.

In story, Jax ran into his ex-wife Carly and informed her he was leaving Port Charles immediately to deal with business in Sydney, Australia.  He adds, he is not planning on coming back to town with this sentiment.“I’m kind of on the outs with everyone in Port Charles right now.”

Things are not be left on good terms with the exes, when Carly spouts, “You know, Jax, I thought I made it clear … my life is none of your business.” After some back and forth about their daughter Josslyn (Eden McCoy), Jax says that he is, “Happy to stay out of your life.”

Later, Jax visits Nina at Charlie’s Pub, and warns her to be careful about getting even more deeply involved with Sonny (Maurice Benard), and she deflects that there is anything going on between them, and telling Jax that her and Sonny don’t have a future together.

Rademacher’s Jax is now off the canvas of the series.
