GENERAL HOSPITAL: "Jake" Remembers He is Jason Just As He Goes Under The Knife! Luke's Two Personalities Emerge!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On Wednesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, it might have been better named “Harrowing Hospital”!

There were plenty of gut-wrenching moments starting with the fact that poor “Jake” (Billy Miller), who has given Dr. Drake (Jason Thompson) the go-ahead to perform brain surgery on him, and remove the chip that is allowing Helena (Constance Towers) to control him, recalled he is actually Jason Morgan!

But the revelation occurred at the most inopportune time …just as “Jake” was counting backwards from ten, as the anesthesia took effect that would knock him out in order for Dr. Drake to operate.

As “Jake” countdowns, he has flashes of chats with Helena and different moments with her.  One in particular, where she tells him who he is triggers a major moment for “Jake”.   But, no one can hear the patient on the operating table, as he is now set to undergo the brain surgery! Will Patrick figure out that indeed this is Jason’s brain he is operating on?

Meanwhile, in heartbreaking scenes performed beautifully by Jackie Zeman (Bobbie) and Tony Geary (Luke), Bobbie visits Luke in his jail cell, and let’s him have an earful of how disgusted she is with her brother … the man that she grew up with and saved her from the horrors of their childhood on Elm Street.   She really lays into her brother when she reveals how truly dismayed she is that he tried to have her son Lucas (Ryan Carnes) killed a year ago.  Luke pipes up that he would have finished the job had Julian (William deVry) not shown up!

However, when Bobbie was overwrought with emotion and pain, and talked about their relationship growing up and more, viewers started to see the real Luke personality everyone is accustomed to seeing re-emerge!  Yup, it looks like Luke is suffering from a form of DID (Dissociative Identify Disorder).

Add all of that to the equation, and a conversation Helena had with Lulu (Emme Rylan), Tracy (Jane Elliot) and Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) and it would seem all roads clearly point to Luke having two personalities, although there are still many gaps in this story to be filled to make it all come together.   Finally, as “Jake” is going to be operated on, Nikolas learns that the ring in the box that Helena presented to him holds the key to just who her “Solider Boy” is … Jason!

Watch the clip where Luke talk to his other personality after the jump! Then weigh-in:  Were you upset to see “Jake” remembering he was Jason before being knocked out for brain surgery?  Were you happy or upset to learn that the Luke/Fluke story could be a harrowing story of DID, and that something terrible happened to Luke as a child? What do you think Nikolas will do with the information that Jason is “Jake”?  Share your thoughts below!

I must honestly say that it NEVER occurred to me that Luke would have a split personality.

@madluv4u….Oh, it occurred to me, too, alright, but not in a serious way, because as a long-term GH viewer, I was expecting and pondering a much more complex explanation as to the mystery identity of Fluke. I don’t know about you, but I am feeling extremely cheated…primarily because of all the time and effort spent trying to crack this particular nut, but also due to the fact that it is such a cliche’ soap device for a character to suffer from DID, not to mention the fact that even if he cannot help himself, seeing the beloved Luke turned into… Read more »

It occurred to me as well, Shay. It’s also a recycle of OLTL’s Viki/Niki.
And Luke’s alter wanted to be Sonny?
That reminds me of when Mary Anne bumped her head and turned into Ginger.

Hey, Shay.
I did state something to that effect…not as well as you, of course, but we both agree on the ‘feeling cheated’ notion. I said that this was a last minute embroidery….Darning job, rather, as there is still a giant hole blatantly glaring and blaring at me. Where is the Big Bang? As yourself, I expected much more of an intriguing mystery…I wanted an AHHHH!!! moment. Now what?
I am glad to see jonboy back, though. I thought he had sworn off GH? LOL.

@CeeCee…..Great minds think alike! Yes…..I read with interest your other comment and meant to respond….I concur with you that there has been a suspiciously “slapdash” sense to this whole Fluke scenario….Me thinks that every time we surmised the actual direction this storyline was heading, a modification was made to both prolong our agony and prove us wrong. And since so many of us had some really intriguing ideas, what was left but the more pedestrian one to which we’re now being treated? While it will undoubtedly provide some interesting plot possibilities and more tour de force opportunities for Tony G.,… Read more »

I think it’s a great way to go. Yes, it’s a Ron specialty ala Vicky/Nicky…Jess/Tess…but what hasn’t been done on soaps? As far as I know, GH never had a dissacociative disorder story before so it’s new for THIS show. It also explains why Tracey didn’t find anything unfamiliar about Fluke during sex, why Fluke knew everything that Luke did….and is much more plausible than, lol, his sister Patricia having plastic surgery to look like Luke! (That theory was a bit of a stretch even for GH) . For those who feel GH is too artoonish, unrealistic, doesn’t deal with… Read more »

Suoo, I do agree that it was great to see Bobbi interacting with her brother again.
Where you and I part ways is you seem to be blaming the failure of the Fluke story to resonate with the viewers on the viewers’ themselves rather than on the writers.

@su0000……I get very weary of your assertions that those of us who do not love and/or find logic in every single detail about GH are “overthinking it” (or “don’t get it”….your other favorite response…) First of all, for me—-and many others, I should gather—-the thought process is an involuntary function…..we do not choose when to turn it on or off….it’s a natural occurrence that obviously is much more pronounced for some than others.

Ive long said i wanted Jakeson to be a Quartemaine so i hope that part is true…what if a very young Luke witnessed his abusive father sexually assualt and murder Patricia accidentally and then he forced Luke to help him bury her body in the basement in that house…his father then locked Luke in the basement as a warning never to tell…Luke blocked the memory for years but in all came back when he was drugged at MsCavige and caused his split personality??? Or would that be too much for daytime???

Mary SF

Well, since Julian has known Fluke for years I believe the story is basically rewriting Luke’s history. They are taking the complex anti hero that was Luke and essentially saying when Luke as “bad” such as raping Laura, he was Fluke and when he was the hero- he was Luke– and there might be other personalities to explain other aspects of his past. The show has established Luke often disappears to explain TG absences, so during those time Luke could have been Fluke, setting up the plot to take over Sonny’s life, and when Luke came back he remembers nothing… Read more »

I have similar suspicions about the Spencer father, I believe he may have been sexual abusing the oldest daughter and was about to d the same to Bobbie but young Luke had to kill him and in his mind he made himself believe the father ran off. The only hole in my theory is from what I understand the father left the kids as their mother lay dying on the kitchen floor. The father ran because if the mother was taking to the hospital they and the police would be able to tell she suffered repeated physical abuse. The show… Read more »

I think it would be fitting for Patrick to figure out Jakeson’s true identity…i mention that in previous posting…but unlike Nik who Helene has presuaded to keep quiet and not tell Sam that Jake and Jason are the same person, Patrick wont tell Sam because he has fallen in wuv with Snoozy Sam…as for Luke/Fluke’s split personality, id like to see him treated by a new psychiatrist in town who specializes in split personality disorders and played by Erika Slezak…YES!!!

I’m glad they are going to explore Spencer family history and Luke has temporarily found his marbles, because Jackie Z has been the saving grace in this sl.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any stupider.

Julian mentioned when this whole Fluke storyline started that he met Fluke years prior and he helped him create that Derek Wells Empire. Did Ron think so little of viewers’ intelligence that he simply thought we would not notice that or the many other plot holes in this story.

I can’t help but wish GH would hire a real writer and not a cartoonist.

Mary SF

I don’t see as a plot hole– it has been mentioned many times of the show in the past the Luke often would just up and disappear for awhile — during those times he could have disassociated and been Fluke doing all those these Julian said he did, but when Luke regain control he would forget he ever did them. The biggest hole in story is how Luke could not know all these years he was missing time, that he or his family could not tell. Of course it takes a complex character like Luke who was the classic anti… Read more »

I think Nikolas is working with ‘Sloane’ to bring down Helena to save his son that stole a voting box, big time federal crime..

Su, there is no crime. Not by a child, anyway. He found it. The kid is nine/ten years old. Nikolas is not doing it to save his son. No court or judge or anyone would convict Spenser. I do agree that there is an unholy alliance between Nikolas and Sloane…on the other hand, I have mentioned it before that methinks Sloane is on the right side of the law. So, it might not be so unholy…. Nikolas is aiding him in some way. For what? Who knows. I’m sure the writers will think of something. This looks like another mystery… Read more »

Ditto, Maureen. It’s dragged out way, way too long which has made the twists and turns boring. And the DID thing – to try and bring that into a character whose been on the show for decades… that’s a no go. Way too unbelievable. Time to wrap it up folks and move on.

I’ve never really liked the Fluke story. Plus, they shouldn’t have let it drag out so long. Bottom line, I’ve got Fluke fatigue, and I just don’t care how it plays out anymore. But I did enjoy it today. I’m hopeful it’s getting us back to some semblance of the old GH.

Mental illnesses such as DID do not manifest themselves at age sixty five.

Pardon me, Harry. With all due respect, you’re way off base on this one. I can speak from first hand experience about this. My mom suffers from a mental illness very similar to DID, and it began for her in her early 60s. They can strike anyone at any age. I live it every day with my mother, where I never know which version of her I’m going to get from day to day.

Hi Harry..
I do not believe it is DID but more-so his mind being being messed up …
He has his chance to fluke and there are other mental illness that can bring that on also..
The mind is a very mysterious place and even the physiatrists and neurosurgeons do not fully have it mapped/understand it..
Luke is not a DID man, it is something like it but not it..
It all started when Luke returned to the house, a mind trigger to Fluke, but does not have to be DID..
====== It is much like a skitzo episode thing……. not did

su0000
Guest
su0000

I’m going with something like this;

Antisocial personality disorder

Disregard for others’ needs or feelings
Persistent lying, stealing, using aliases, conning others
Recurring problems with the law
Repeated violation of the rights of others
Aggressive, often violent behavior
Disregard for the safety of self or others
Impulsive behavior
Consistently irresponsible
Lack of remorse for behavior

there is a 100 things it can be outside of DID then again they are all some kind of crazy..
Luke had a trigger at the house, so whatever it just afflicted him..
It’s a soap illness <—— ahaa
We can call call it .. Soap Skitzo Disease..

Ron C. has more strengths as a writer (I would argue) than people often given him credit for, but writing mental illness storylines has never, ever been one of them. With both Viki and Jess on One Life to Live, for example, the “rules” seemed to change from day to day about basic things such as the degree to which the main personality was aware of what the alter personalities were doing and what “integration” did or did not mean. So although there might be some interesting moments along the way, I’m not expecting this storyline to make good sense… Read more »

I agree with you. This story is annoying to say the least, although, I do like the new spin on it with uncovering Luke’s past.

Regardless, I’m a big Tony Geary fan and I’m always happy to see this man in the forefront of any storyline.

Of course, it IS always my wish to see Genie come back and read what Luke is going through. If anyone knows this man, it’s Laura — just wish GH and Tony weren’t so against that happening even for a little while.

I like the Antisocial Personality Disorder and there is another illness called BPD or Borderline Personality Disorder where the Dominant alter is one of extreme rage as much as some other characteristics. It’s one or two steps more extreme than DID.

If this was the plan from the beginning, to have Luke have 2 personalities, then why have we NEVER seen this side of him emerge before? And is the explanation for the emergence of Fluke supposed to be Heather locking Luke up in Miscavige and those drugs he was hyped up on causing his second personality to emerge? Because ever since Luke was rescued, he has been acting very differently. Plus, what about Julian supposedly meeting Fluke in witness protection? Are we to believe that every time Luke went on vacation, Fluke reemerged and met with Julian? As exasperating as… Read more »

Luke’s dual personalities in interesting, however tedious. He should get cured quickly and then decide if he wants to be in this show on a regular basis. Good actor,, but not consistent. I would like to see Jake back as Jason. Who ever writes this character makes him so personable that you want him to have his life back and for Sam to stop her bed hopping. Would like to get back to Sabrina and have her find happiness. As well as for Felix. Please don’t bring Robin back. Been there done that. Let the good doctor take c

Jakeson is a borel. I dread if Sam gets stuck with him and I’m a huge Jasam fan. I can’t believe this is sweeps, more like sleeps.

Emme Rylan Addresses Reports Of Her Exit From General Hospital & Update On Plans With Family

Several hours ago, Emme Rylan (Lulu) of General Hospital took to her Instagram story to talk directly to her followers, friends and fans about her rumored exit on the ABC daytime drama series, and to share some changes in where she and her family will be living.

At that time, Emme updated everyone that since the landlord sold the house she has been living in with partner Don Money and their three children, that they had not found a suitable home for them to live, in Los Angeles, after their extensive search.  So for now they were going to put their things in storage and go on an extended road trip with the entire family in tow … in a car… under Covid-19 safety protocols with her kids still distance-learning, and that she would be documenting the trip on her Instagram account,

After she shared her original update, she later went back to her Instagram story to clarify her earlier statements after many fans were following up with her asking her even more questions.

 

Rylan shared:  “I am getting a lot of questions that I cannot answer …  people are kind of being confused that maybe I chose to take a vacation or take time-off,  so the only thing I can say is “no, I did not choose this.”  I can’t say anything else.  There you go.   That’s all I am allowed to say.   So, this trip is us taking an unexpected turn of events and turning it into something positive and fun for our family. ”

Earlier on her IG story, Emme addressed the reports of her exit from Port Charles explaining: “I am not in a position to be able to comment on the work stuff, so in terms of General Hospital, I am going to keep that topic quiet. All you need to know is that I love everyone there, we all love each other, I’m okay, and all of your messages of love are amazing … I love you guys so much — but I just can’t talk about it. ”

Then as to her plans with her family she shared: “We, meaning my family and I, have decided to do something completely insane. I have never done anything like this in my entire adult life. We are currently packing up our entire house and putting it in a pod and putting it in storage here in Los Angeles, and with only our suitcases, we are going to go on a Covid-safe, epic road trip.  I have been working every single day, Monday through Friday on a soap opera since 2004?  I have only been in New York and L.A, and I have never really explored life outside of this bubble.”

So, what do you think about what Emme shared with her fans and followers? Comment below.

General Hospital’s Halloween Week Promo Touts Wicked Surprises

Looks like everyone will be on edge this week as Halloween comes to Port Charles.  In the newly-released ABC promo for General Hospital, it reveals that this spooky week of episodes will be a rollercoaster ride, featuring wicked surprises, and killer costumes.

After Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) scolds Franco (Roger Howarth) for having his hand in the candy jar, Anna (Finola Hughes) or is it? … is donning a black witches hat. Jackie (Kim Delaney) is seen opening her door, juxtaposed with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) saying “trick or treat”. But, is he actually at the door of someone else?

Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) asks Ava (Maura West), “Darling, what are you holding behind your back?” That is revealed to be a knife, but is it Ava who truly has the knife?

 

Meanwhile, Jason (Steve Burton) is looking around in the dark.  Elsewhere, Peter is jumpy.  So much so that Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) utters, “Looks like you’ve seen a ghost.”

Add all that to last Friday’s episode of GH where Carly(Laura Wright) thinks she saw Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) hand come out of her grave and attack her! Is Nelle (Chloe Lanier) going to be proven to be alive? And if so, will she pop up on Halloween and scare the hell out of Carly?

Watch the promo below, then let us know what you think will happen this week on General Hospital via the comment section.
