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.

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… Read more »

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!!!

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… Read more »

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

“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… Read more »

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….

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!

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.

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!

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

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

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
