On Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Nathan Parsons made his on-screen return as Luke (Tony Geary) and Holly’s (Emma Samms) son, Ethan Lovett.

Parsons, who has been making a name for himself in primetime since exiting GH, re-entered the canvas in high stakes moment when Luke found Ethan with his leg chained to a device, exhausted and ready to pass out.   If Ethan moved ever so slightly his foot would set off what would seem to be a bomb.

In a touching moment, Ethan told Luke he was happy to see him, and the two bonded as the two always do in their own unique way.  After Luke saved Ethan by freeing him and pushing him out of the way of the device his foot was locked on there turned out to be no explosion.  Enter Lulu (Emme Rylan), Dillon (Robert Palmer Watkins), Laura (Genie Francis) and Holly all held captive, and at the end of the episode, whoever is behind this caper seemed to be revealed.   As for Lucky (Jonathan Jackson) going into Friday’s episode, Ethan explained he got away, but was not sure where Lucky was or if he was captured.

What did you think of the scenes between Luke and Ethan? Happy to see Nathan Parsons back on GH for this short arc? Comment below!

Loved their scene. Wish NP was back at GH full time, however, glad he’s doing so well in other areas.

They were some sweet scenes I’m newer to GH and don’t find Luke all that great personally, however I enjoyed him and Ethan. They are both obviously good actors and deserve their props for yesterday’s episode.

Luke and Tracy will happen, but wow, you really haven’t watched long if you ‘ve never seen or heard of Ethan. You really don’t know Luke at all.

Love the reunion scenes between Ethan and Luke!!! Nathan Parsons is a great actor and gives off such natural charm, energy, and charisma; wish he could stay on GH longer! And he’s so hot and sexy !!

Heather…you wrote exactly my sentiments. I’ll add that I love the relationship between Luke and Ethan…they had a natural rapport from the start and picked up where they left off without skipping a beat. Thought it ridiculous though how quickly thepey whisked Holly and Ethan off the scene…for all they knew when they left Luke was about to be killed. The writing is laughable…the scene with Lulu, Dillon and the bodyguards couldn’t have been more absurd…and Holly, as well as Ethan…wouldn’t have left Luke to die without plotting to rescue him…

With that said…Nathan Parsons is for me, the hottest guy that’s ever been on GH…there’s just something about him.

I sure am happy to have Nathan back on GH even if just for a couple of scenes. I wish he was back on GH but know he has a great prime time part so we’re lucky he could make it back at all. Good luck on your new TV show, Nathan, but really do miss you on GH!!!!

I enjoy Ethan ,but Tony has turned me against Luke with his big mouth.I just saw the part where he opened the door, At the gym I saw Ethan get shot on the leg but missed the rest.

It was great to see them both together! Yes, they are natural and sincere. The entire “sendoff” for Luke is dumb! He was just in a mental hospital for carrying out horrible things and now we are on another random adventure. The writing is absurd! I wonder if that is the end of Holly and Ethan for this arc? Ethan is a cutie! I am just ready for the Lulu stuff and Dante stuff to be over and I truly hope the last days of Luke are special and heart warming, not ridiculous and unmemorable…

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

TODAY: General Hospital Rebroadcasts Masterful 52nd Anniversary Episode

Fans are in for a treat today (Friday, May 22nd) when ABC’s General Hospital airs an encore presentation of one of the finest hours of soap opera in the history of the genre, with its 52nd anniversary episode from April 1, 2015.

In the episode, viewers finally learned what turned Luke (Tony Geary) into Fluke, which has been the on-going story for months; but it all lead up to the shocking reveal, when Luke revisited his past in his broken down childhood home and the demons that haunted him.

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
