GENERAL HOSPITAL: Luke He Comes Face To Face With Helena … Or So He Thinks!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On last Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary) was not doing very well.  In fact, he is dying and is desperately looking for a cure that only Jerry Jacks supposedly has!   Luke now is on the very creepy Cassadine Island, looking for Mr. Jacks.  And once knocking out one of the guards  to  gain access to the maximum security area, Luke thinks he sees the footsteps of someone coming towards him.  And he’s right, well sort of.

In a shocker for fans.  in walks Luke’s mortal enemy Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers).   While at first viewers may have thought that Helena somehow survived her “final” fate, and is indeed alive, in turned out that Luke was just having his most frightening hallucination of them all!  Next, the vision of  Helena tells Luke to join her in the grave and promises to end his suffering.  The scene was very in line with all Luke and Helena scenes, even with the now staple creepy kiss between the two! Helena kissed Luke, but it’s still very dark and twisted and delicious at the same time.   At the end of the scene, Luke refuses to go with her, while Helena promises he’ll see her again, because he is going to die.

Now on today’s new episode, fans are awaiting to see who else walked in that could be on Cassadine Island that Luke saw, but the audience didn’t!  Tony Geary is once again showing his acting chops, and we can’t help but wonder, could some of these upcoming scenes actually be strong material for him for next year’s Emmy race?  We shall see, because anything he does pretty much can turn into gold!   And, how great though was it to see Constance Towers back!

So we ask, what did you think about seeing Constance Towers and Anthony Geary again in scenes?  Are you glad that as of now Helena is still really dead?  Or, were you hoping that she was alive?    Comment below!

Im glad she is finally dead she gives me the creeps. On the other hand in the world of soap opera any character can come back to life.

I love Helena. I hope she eventually does come back from the dead.

Please stay dead Helena, and lets get this story done soon, Great that Robin will return but lets get going !! And Britt’s baby’s paternity needs to be revealed right away too….this is getting old, let those kids have their own babies ! I really need a job LOL !!!!!

Another great episode…dead or alive it was good to see Helene…did Dr. O take baby Ben like i predicted?…Robins back(but i knew she’d be in the last scene)…Maxi, Spin, Dante and Lulu…loving the suspense…cant wait for next episode!!!

Oh yes, jimh!!!! The magnificent, malevolent and mirthful (grand)mutta was in the triumphant thick of things today, and it was diabolically delightful!!!! Definitely worth the wait, although I have so missed her pernicious presence…it’s been torture waiting for the obtrusive Obrecht’s return! Being on the lam must have agreed with the shadylady scientist because she looked so youthful and rejuvenated….she had a real glow about her! (Perhaps she should bottle her anti-aging remedy?….Would sure beat that cheesy CoeCoeCosmetics/ spa stuff that loquacious Lucy is always hawking!) You could tell how much Dr. O. was relishing her new role with baby “Cesar” (Loved her priceless reaction to the name, “Ben…”) as she pronounced each malicious morsel of malcontentment to her daughter! (Delivered with great aplomb by the ALWAYS awesome Kathleen Gati!) It really was glorious viewing!!!! As for the “Heidi Klum” remark…Such fun!!!! Whatever transpires down the road with this superb storyline, “Cartini” had better create a way for our beloved vituperative villainess to retain a place in the GH hemisphere….she is simply inspired….and indispensable!!!!!! Long live Liesl O.!!!!!

If they are going to ‘redeem’ Franco with a brain tumor, they could do the same with Dr.O…would like Dr.O to hold a belated baby shower for Britt and the baby and invite Patrick, Robin, Maxi, Spin, Sapbrina, Anna, Duke, Felix, Brad, Lulu, and Dante…that would be an interesting party…just joking…lol

I kind of appreciate when characters die, they stay dead. I am not one for repeated resurrections. That said, I am not opposed to ghostly returns… and this Spencer-Cassadine connection was ghostly, ghastly, and creepy fun indeed!!!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I hope Ben isnt Dante and Lulus…that would give them a happy ending and story conclusion…the baby should be Dante and Britts…this could give Britt more story and complicate Dante and Lulus lives for years…also possible choice…Patrick and Britts…this could cause problems in the Drakes marriage, and give kim m.reason to sometimes leave the show to direct or whatever…other parents for Ben are Nik and Britt or even Patrick and Sabrina(that would upset some viewers…lol) or Patrick and Robins…also i want Britt to be Annas daughter…Dr.O carried her but Britts really Annas and heres the shocker…Faison is the father!!!

After witnessing “ShrewLu’s” absolutely bratty and possessive behavior with “Baby Connie,” (HATE the name….) I truly hope that she ends up with neither child. Her snotty behavior has become really predictable, and nothing about it is remotely entertaining. Even Dante has finally snapped out of his clueless, “proud papa” mode after today’s revelation, so hopefully we will be seeing the successful conclusion of this great parental charade very soon. As for “Ben” (Who will here to for be known as “Cesar” since he is now in the protective custody of his grandmutter…LOL) I still look for there to be some big twist to his true paternity….it would be far too cliche’ and convenient for the Falconeris to have a legal claim to Britt’s offspring.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

There has to be a twist…Little Ben/Ceaser cant be Dante and Lulus…too predictable and boring…id even settle for the child being Dr.Os and Faisons…possible…Britt carried her own brutter!!!

Shay
Shay

“Brutter.” LOL….Would love to see “Cesar” have some Cassadine blood….that could serve to create a deeper bond between Nik and Britt!!! Other than that, I can’t imagine what could be more shocking. I don’t think Jerry Jacks could be the father with his current illness, and from what I read, he’s furious with Dr. O. for bringing the baby to the island in upcoming episodes, so that idea seems like a long shot. As far out as this storyline has become, I don’t believe that the love-crazed “Mutta” would have had her daughter carry her own father’s child…that is probably even toooo sick for her! (At least I hope so…there will be no redeeming our mutually favorite fraulein for future frolics if such is the case!!!!)

Shay
Shay

P.S. The only way I possibly could imagine Jerry as Britt’s “baby daddy” would be if he thought he needed some kind of transplant to save him….but that doesn’t sound to be the case given Robin’s “wonder drug!” Also, he maybe could have accomplished the same goal with the help of Jax or even Josslyn, so I cannot see the value of this idea. That being said, whatever Mr. Jacks has utilized up until now has worked like a charm…dude looked to be in rude health!!! On the other hand….there’s Luke appearing like death warmed over….

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

LOL…i was kinda joking about Britt carrying her own brutter…but it sure would be contriversal and disgusting…can imagined what other peoples comments would be if that happened…like the Cassidine connection…maybe Britt did carry a Cassidine baby that her mutter had an affair with a long time ago…interesting!

if memory serves me, the Spencer clan left Helena’s body in the cold room around the area where they found Lulu. Since they didn’t do a DNA test on the body, nor did they destroy it, I figured she was alive, somewhere. 🙂

I’m so over Luke. Think it was about the 250th time he did his annual faking-a-German-professor accent storyline that threw me off the Luke fan bandwagon.

I am VERY much over the cartoonish pointless Helena character…but I would love to know Constance Towers’ anti-aging secret! The woman is well into her 80’s and she looks awesome! She barely looks older than when she was on Capitol 30 years ago!

k/kay

She is 80! Maybe it is time for Tony Geary to retire just silly plots every time he goes to Amsterdam it has put Jane Elliott/Tracy in limbo for years just retire.

Johnny

Ya I can get behind that. Luke without Laura makes NO sense. This attempt to make Tracy into his soulmate is wrong and weird. I never loved Luke more than during the claire Labine years which ny apparently hated. Seeing a 65 year old man still playing action hero with the Cassadines is ridiculous.! He should be settled and happy with Laura by now. The mistake all these soaps have made (My name is Erica Kane) is writing 50 something characters as if they were still 20. Let them grow up!

Patrick

here, here….

he’s good publicity for the show… and emmy nominations galore.

BUT.

I have to so agree… it leaves THE wonderful Tracy… too much in limbo….

damn you… GH… OK i curse you…. LOL

watching Tracy with Joe, Scully jr.. was deelish (delicious) and rabid… for Tracy to score

Tracy needs someone new…who is also into Monica…give these gems their own storyline!!!

I think Anthony Geary is a very good actor . And don’t think he should retire. He has quite a bit of emmy awards .. For his good acting ability. I like him and I want him to stay on GH !

If I recall Stavros stashed Helena away and put her on ice…just as she saved his life. I don’t think she’s really dead!

Lulu was in such rage about finding out the truth about the baby. I thought she was going to bust a blood vessel. I felt sorry for Maxi.

I think Helena should have still survived because I think she should know how Nikolas was doing

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

READ MORE
GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

Courtesy/ABC

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

 

Courtesy: ABC

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

Let us know if you agree with our pick via the comment section below, and what you thought about Cynthia’s work in these key episodes.

Where has James Patrick Stuart’s (Valentin Cassadine) photo been all this time from the dressing room area at General Hospital?  Well, looks like we may have the answer to that question!

In a brand new video ditty posted by the folks at GH, Stuart is seen combing the hallways looking for his portrait along with the other major stars of the ABC daytime drama series .. problem is … it’s MIA! Something James takes notice off.

Then, in a time-jump (LOL), Stuart finally gets his big moment when he officially joins the ranks of the cast with his photo being unveiled right next to Maurice Benard’s (Sonny) picture.

The tweet accompanying the video relates: “Contrary to Valentin’s opinion… @japastu is having the best week ever.”   Of course, the tweet refers to Stuart’s character who has just had a disaster-filled wedding to Nina (Cynthia Watros)

Watch what happens below.
