GENERAL HOSPITAL: Is Luke Spencer Under Mind-Control From Helena Cassadine … Or Is This Just Another Red Herring?

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, Lulu (Emme Rylan) comes to visit Luke (Anthony Geary) in jail.  She believes that Helena (Constance Towers) has Luke under mind-control, as she had done to Lucky in the past, and is doing to “Jake” (Billy Miller) at present.

What other explanation could there be for her dad’s despicable and out-of-character behavior over the last year or so? As the scenes between the father and daughter play out, clues uttered by Luke would indicate that he is not under Helena’s mind-control spell.  This opens up the possibility of theories that “mind-control” may not be the culprit for Luke’s behavior.

Elsewhere, Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) helps get Helena immunity in exchange for information on how she is controlling both “Jake” and Luke.  After Nikolas blackmails Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Helena is released from prison.   The villainess matriarch of the Cassadine clan apparently wrote down what she knows of what has happened to “Jake” and Luke and hands the information over to Nikolas while Agent Sloane (Grayson McCouch) looks on.   At the end of the episode, Sloane comes down to “Jake” and Luke’s jail cells and tells the men, “You two are going on a little field trip.”

So at this point in the Fluke/Luke storyline, do you truly believe the answer to Luke’s behavior is mind-control via Helena?  Or, could it be that this is the real Luke Spencer, and the Luke Spencer we knew all these years who was the good guy was the imposter?  Whether you love or hate the storyline, what is your best guess as to how this will ultimately conclude as to the true identity of this legacy GH character?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I do not think it is mind control, it is most likely something the audience have not considered. Luke is a legacy character, the producers and the writers would never have Luke try to murder people, including his daughter,sister and nephew without there being a major twist that will payoff soon.

Robert, I do believe this audience has considered every possible venue concerning the Fluke storyline. We are not talking about an amateur audience here. This site has some of the most intelligent and astute posters I have ever seen. This audience is quite savvy and wise. I cannot say much because I’m a newbie, but our fellow-posters, including yourself, have exhausted every scenario. I did propose, however, that the potent drugs distorted Luke’s perception of what’s right or wrong…..he’s just so bloodthirsty, nothing else matters. If that is the case, then there is still something good buried within him. Perhaps… Read more »

Fluke is not Luke ….
I followed the clues– Luke and Fluke are not the same person.

When Fluke said he was Luke that was said- sarcastically -by whomever is Fluke..
That was Fluke having a self-laugh over it all ..

I just don’t think the writers will be able to explain who Fluke is or why he acts the way he does in a believable way. The explanation will have to be extremely convoluted. Luke getting drugs at his initial stay at Miscavige that fried his brain would be believable, except he approached Julian over a decade ago to take down Sonny. Mind control doesn’t work because Luke shot Helena, two years ago and she was trying to kill him with poison. Robert, if there is some explanation that no one has thought of, it will be completely out of… Read more »

With all the mentions of Patricia and seeing the old Spencer house, I think it’s pretty clear that there was abuse and maybe a murder back then, like Luke killed his terrible father or something…. There’s been a lot of talk through the years of their bad childhood but I don’t think anything specific….

Robert
Guest
Robert

You are right, many a legion of fans have discussed every possible theory in regard to Luke’s murderous behavior and I agree with you the audience is a smart one and I figured the writers and producers know this, that is why I believe they are trying to be a step ahead of the fans and that is why I am confident they are planning a major twist that will respect the audience’s intelligence.

Mind control makes no sense because if Helena had him under her control why did she allowed him to shoot her on the Haunted Star? Why did she poison his earring to kill him if she could control him? And Fluke first made his appearance in PC when she was “frozen” waiting to be revive by Robin, whose procedure hadn’t been proven yet. No either Luke had a twin brother we never knew about or Luke has multiple personalities that come out at different times– like those times Luke would disappear, he could have been Fluke–then he would come back… Read more »

Well, mind control would make you seem like to everyone including Lulu you are not who you looked up to all these years. She knows it and it hurts her. And speaking of Lulu, this actress finally got to shine and have a decent scene with TG. She is talented and capable and I really like their scene in the jail together. Anyway, I still think the real Luke is locked away on Cassadine Island and this is an impostor.

I don’t believe Helena is controlling Fluke. Perhaps it is Luke, a new Luke turned monster. It’s very possible that his brain has been so battered with mind altering drugs to obliterate any human feeling he might have had……voila’ Fluke! In a way, this is the end product for which Helena was aiming. Other than that, I draw a blank.

A split personality would do a lot to explain things and would also explain why Luke frequently skips town without explanation. I don’t think Helena is controlling Luke in any way. If she could do that, why would she wait until now? Also, what is the end game here? We still don’t really know what Luke and Helena are up to.

interesting question. what I would like vs what do I expect to happen? My best guess is there are reasons for what Luke did, and the change in him somehow goes back to helena’s poisoning of him and the “cure” for the Poisoning. I don’t buy a Luke was exchanged back in the 90’s with Bill Eckert. In my heart as a viewer of 39yrs, if this will be the exit for luke I want it to end with Laura, she comes to help him and for her to take care of him they way he took care of her.… Read more »

At this point does anyone care who Fluke is? So done with this story. It is absolutely absurd how they portray the legal system. I realize this is supposed to be entertainment but it is just too stupid to be entertaining. How many times does Helena have to die before she is really dead? Just ridiculous.

I have been an ardent admirer and fan of Tony Geary’s since I was a child (In other words, for about one hundred years). For me to criticize him is a big deal–it means something is inherently wrong. I cannot even stand the sight of him anymore, and I never ever thought I would feel… Read more »

Let’s just hope this isn’t the beginning of ABC starting to push GH over the cliff like they did AMC and OLTL. This time using a story, and even a favorite for years like Tony/Luke, that many loyal, regular viewers don’t like so they ” don’t rush home to see it” anymore. I guess I’ll never really trust ABC.

No idea if it’s DID or Luke gone bad (brain-fry from drugs/Helena) – or if it’s the proverbial long-lost evil twin, but this story needs to have a big payoff! I loved the “Lizard Lounge” banter between Scotty & Ric in court on Thursday’s show! Funny..

When I want to think I will re read James Joyce’s Ulysses or Dostoevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov. And I do enjoy a good mystery as long as the clues leading up to solving that mystery form a trail of bread crumbs.

We need to move beyond the Luke/Fluke storyline, it has dragged on

Drop the wretch down a flight of stairs ( without hurting Tony’s back )and

I FF all these scenes, just like I do the Sonny and Ava ones. To me, it’s like Twin Peaks or Lost. The storylines don’t seem to be mapped out far ahead or in much details. They just go for crazy. That’s why you have so many contradictions and inconsistencies.

the original rapist luke was replaced by a good twin (maybe caught him getting ready to do something evil and forced him into a coma)–helena finds the real luke along the way and resurrects him–original evil luke wants back at everyone who was part of nu luke’s life

or this is all happening in a snow globe and luke is married to Helena and they are both in a retirment home in Florida and General hospital has been his fantasies while they are playing endless games of bridge

I’m pretty tired of the story line too, but also understand that it would probably be wrapped up by now if Tony G didn’t have to take a leave of absence to heal. My take is that this is NOT mind control and this guy is NOT Luke. It’s his sister Patricia who probably looked a lot like Luke and had a sex-change and is now taking “revenge” on everyone for some reason.

Pat

Think maybe Luke has a twin? How old is sister Patricia? Could they be fraternal twins…then she had sex-reassignment surgery (along w/plastic surg!!) & came into PC to wreak havoc upon everyone’s lives related to Luke?

I agree with many of the comments, this story line was never very intriguing to me. Mix that in with the excessive duration and it makes for a dreary combination. I hope Fluke somehow is Bill E. because at least that would allow those of us who are Luke fans to still adore him instead of finding a way to ignore his reign of evil. GH doesn’t need these far fetched story lines to be compelling. Let Maxie get a job. I miss her work antics. Jack also needs employment. Michael needs to quit whining.

I love GH, especially the writing. However, there is one major flaw in the “Fluke” storyline, and I cannot believe that Frank and Ron are not addressing it. The storyline loses traction and credibility with the almost complete absence of Laura’s name in this story. Even if she is not on the show, there is one character that would be able to tell the difference between Luke/Fluke. At the very least, Lulu would be on the phone discussing all of this with her mother. The fact that this is not even alluded to makes the storyline frustrating. Other than than,… Read more »

Laura, Luke’s former love and wife, Lulu and Lucky’s and Nichol’s mother has not been contacted during the entire four months.

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.”

The popular actor began his run as GH’s Jason Quartermaine back in 1991. Later in 1995, after a car accident he had a major personality shift and became Jason Morgan. Burton went to Y&R to play Dylan McAvoy for a four-year stint from 2013-2017, before heading back to his home at GH.

A source close to the show told Deadline that Burton’s last tape date was October 27th.

You can watch Steve’s video announcement below on his GH departure.

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.

So, what did you think of how GH wrote out Jax and Ingo’s exit from the show? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

During the Best Actor section, where General Hospital’s Steve Burton (Jason) was the winner from General Hospital and John McCook (Eric) was the winner from The Bold and the Beautiful, co-host Sheryl Underwood asked Steve about the passing of Stuart Damon (Ex- Alan Quartermaine), who played his on-screen father.

Burton became very emotional and with tears in his eyes expressed:  “Stuart was just our rock, like for everybody in the studio. And you can always judge a man by his actions, and he was kind to everybody, all the time. He made sacrifices for us, and his family, and I want people to know that not only was he an amazing actor, he was just an amazing man and an amazing father that I look up to.”
