Last week, viewers were witness to the long held secret of the Spencer family that only Patricia Spencer (Dee Wallace) and Luke (Anthony Geary) had known, only Luke repressed the memories of the fateful night when he murdered his father and accidentally killed his mother!  After GH fans finally understood what caused Luke to be “Fluke”, the process begins for him to heal.

As a tribute to the twists and turns of the most iconic of all soap opera characters, General Hospital put together a video retrospective done as a riff on E!’s True Hollywood Story, on the life and times of Luke Spencer going all the way back to his childhood beginnings through today.

From his life with Laura (Genie Francis) and life on the run, to his alcoholism and running over little Jake, to the feud with the Cassadines, to his psychotic breakdown and the Fluke story, it’s all contained within this four minute plus video.

Check GH True Port Charles: Luke Spencer after the jump! Then let us know what has been your favorite storyline involving Luke Spencer of all-time?

The most coveted rating is; the 18-49 demographic..
soaps are written primarily for those numbers..
Most were not even born yet; 70’s and early 80’s..
so they don’t care about the good old days LOL 🙂

GH rocks!!
the 52nd was more than great !!! watched it twice ..

Su—sorry but you are wrong…i have a neice in that demo who does care about each characters history and i know others here like CeeCee who is always happy to learn something about the show’s history…plus MF asked our favorite Luke storyline and did not say from the last five years…had you not missed the soaps at their best you would be singing a different tune but unfortunately you werent there so there is no way you can honestly compare the 70s to the 80s to soaps today! But im glad you are part of soaps today and enjoy GH…soaps… Read more »

You are right, Jimh

Pretty good synopsis of so many years. Annoying, though i have no use for the Cassadines, that Stavros’s name kept being pronounces Starvros or something like that.

LOL. EXACTLY! For a proper tribute, dude (narrator), get your FACTS straight! It’s Stavros dork, not Stravos. I was appalled when the narrator first said the name wrong. That’s very insulting to we long time fans of over 30 years!

My favorite storyline is the favorite of TG and Genie Francis: Luke and Laura on the run, with rapid-fire dialogue a la Frank Capra and “It Happened One Night.” (See Genie Francis and TG talk about this in their interviews for the American Academy of Television.) Watch on Youtube. It was, as they say, the 2 characters “against the world,” a “Romeo and Juliet” takeoff, taking with them an audience that felt they were there. That’s drama!

My favorite they have not filmed yet! Luke’s exit never to be seen or heard about again! Just kidding ! I could not help myself the devil made me say that! Probably in all seriousness would be Luke & Laura’s 15th wedding anniversary and they were down in the Catacombs dancing because everyone thought they were estranged! Sorry I’m a sucker for romance!

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.
