Hold on to your socks, GH fans! Tomorrow looks to be a key day in the unraveling of the Duke mystery/story that may give us a major clue as to just what has happened to Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan) that has turned him into such a seemingly evil guy!

General Hospital’s head writer, Ron Carlivati took to his Twitter account today to tease  fans with the following series of exciting tweets:  “Tomorrow on General Hospital, the truth about Duke Lavery. ‘Nuff said.  Is Duke Lavery really as bad as he seems? Could someone be controlling Duke Lavery? And if so, why? Find out tomorrow on General Hospital. Watch #GH!

In addition, GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini had a curious tweet this afternoon stating, “WHAT? WHO? Tomorrow’s #GH is a blast!”

Ok soapers, who do you think could be pulling the strings here, if indeed someone is controlling Duke Lavery?  What do you think “the truth is” of this killer/kidnapper dude, version of Duke?  Weigh-in!

It could be Jason who went under cover to rescue Robin. Sorry, still can’t get over my JnR.

I dont think this is duke…i believe it is faison..wasnt he supposedly killed in a explosion(blast)..mmmm….bet he is behind this whole thing and the real duke will be shown to be alive and being held like robin

One can only hope. Wouldn’t it be ironic if Robert was the one to rescue Duke given his distain for him?!

Faison in makeup or surgery would explain why Luke is so suspicious of him.

I never thought of this. Wonderful! Can’t wait for today’s episode. Love GH! Wait a minute. You don’t think Jason is being held also do you? No. Maybe.

Awesome!!
GH is so exciting and fast moving, I’m always on the edge!
GH is ready for prime time!!

I am having a soap love affair with GH .. lol
It is unbelievable that BB and YR have higher ratings, that is beyond any reason..

I agree, Nelson ratings are antiquated pieces of nothing so many of us watch Gh and are not accounted for in the ratings…….my family of at least 50 or more have been watching GH since 1963 and never were they counted for in Ohio, Kentucky, New York, California…. We need us all to be counted.

According to the last Soap Opera Digest, GH was closing in on B&B….

Because both those soaps walk treadmills around GH.

i agree wholeheartedly – it’s now a 2 hour a day love affair…. BOTH, GH & Days… are good…. in any event… they’re both keeping me interested…. I can believe… how much Elieen Davidson… captivates… she’s brought a whole new dimension… to DOOL. Kristen and EJ look so good together… CLASS…. I’m enjoying and LOL… over John’s “libidinous… behaviour…” it’s just a treat to see john and marlena… acting out… days of old… the writing is pretty good. I’m heartsick over Nicole… Lucas has been so good with Will…. even if i don’t like it… it needs to be shared….

GH – what an emotional rollercoaster! so much to say…. standing ovation to the writers, with the Robin story…. Emma talking on the phone with her mom…. and does she talk to Patrick… ???? Tears!

Brian

GH is on fire !!! Best it has ever been in the past 20 years.

FAison..no Helena, no Faison, no Helena…Wiat what would the Helena /Robin connection be?

SharonB

Do not know anything about the Faison storyline so I can’t say. My thoughts are it has something to do with the Cassadine Family. If they are incorporating any of the OLTL storyline into it maybe Allison Perkins has Victor Jr. captive where Robin is. Since in daytime dramas nobody ever seems to stay dead maybe Victor jr/Todd’s mother(I have forgotten her name) could be alive. She is evil enough she could be a secret Cassadine. Far fetched but anything can happen on Soaps. Another surprise could be whomever the evil person was on AMC could be connected.

Andrew
Andrew

I’m hoping that the Cassadine’s are their own separate story and not connected to this … but would love it if Victor Jr is at the same hospital that Robin is… that would be awesome. Robin escapes from her room, dashes into another room to escape capture and discovers Victor. And yes it would be great if Dr. David Hayward from AMC was part of this story too. 🙂

who is behind the mask???????

Jeffrey Anderson
Jeffrey Anderson

yeah,who is the hell behind that mask? Scooby Doo already took the mask from costume..lol….. I know that Robert Scorpio be back next Thursday. Robert is not Duke Lavery.. My guess is Faison still old WBS enemy.

“The Truth about Duke” is dumb. This storyline went from BAD to WORSE. It makes zero sense whatsoever and I’m not impressed.

Molly

I have thought from the beginning that it was Cesar Faison and think he will be revealed to be te ‘unmasked’ one; could not, however, have seen this coming! I thought that’s who would be revealed as holding Robin at the beginning of the story arc and then, when it was Duke, thought myself wrong—now, I’m thinking I may have been right all along!!

susan M.

He was wearing a mask & took it off in front of Robin on Fri. show..Couldn’t remember the stories Robin was talking about from her childhood..Didn’t show his face when he took the mask off.It looks like someone Robin knows she looked surprised…Who is he???

Patrick
Patrick

for Anna’s sake… and i’ll buy in to the “real” Duke being held captive….

it’s been so romantic… watching Anna and Duke… and all the past…. scenes… of ole’.

Forget Duke. I want Robert Scorpio back. KM needs to come back on a regular basis. I miss her!

Mae

This whole Duke story line is ridiculous. Anna was touching, hugging, kissing Duke and never noticed his face was a mask that could be ripped off in a matter of seconds??? Wasn’t she a highly regarded WSB agent for the last three decades?? She has been fooled for weeks, and Robin figures out it’s not Duke within 5 minutes of seeing him? Does anyone have a count of how many GH characters have been presumed dead only to return alive and well a few months or years later? No wonder all Felicia could say when she saw Duke for the first time was “I heard you were back in town.”

rebecca
rebecca

errr…it’s a soap. just sit back and enjoy the ride!

Andrew

I would normally cry “foul” at Duke’s mask, but if it’s Faison (which it looks like it will be) then he has a history of some sort of mind control (I can’t remember the specifics) and that’s why Anna didn’t become suspicious. I realized that he is always handing her something to drink.. it’s been subtle (or maybe I’m just remembering wrong) .. IN any event, it’s a soap so I tend to give a wide leeway. I just thank heaven it’s not another ‘plastic surgery’ story!

BTW Faison turned up on another ABC soap a few years after he, Anna and Robert all supposedly perished in that boating accident 20 years ago so we’ve known for awhile that he survived. Actually, Robert and Anna took many years to resurface (Anna first on AMC).

Here’s hoping that the RealDuke is actually alive – like after the storyline is over and Duke/Faison is banished/imprisoned/killed whatever, that we flash to some sort of rest home and there’s the real Duke.. just like the show did so many years ago with the real Grant Putnam. (Yes it’s a little sad how well I know the history of this show LOL) 😉

Andrew
Andrew

Should mention here, that I’m really grateful that Cartini have been keeping actors’ returns and plot points under wraps.. this show is much more fun when I don’t know what’s coming. Alan’s return last week (even as a ‘ghost’ ) was a complete surprise (and what a great episode that was, too).

Claudia Kurzyna
Claudia Kurzyna

Yes, I agree it was great to see Alan return. It was a complete surprise. I am thinking that this is a manipulation by Faison. Hopefully we will find out tomorrow!

California Gov. Gavin Newsom Reveals TV & Film Production Restart June 12th; But May Not Include LA County

There was some significant signs that Hollywood and the state of California’s show business production looks to be gearing up for a restart after all TV and film production was halted a few months ago as the coronavirus pandemic hit the state, our country, and the globe.

The reopening for production may not include L.A. County, however, which is the epicenter of the state’s show business production.

According to Deadline: On Friday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the state could begin TV and film production as early as June 12th.  While the California Department of Public Health released the following guidelines:  “Music, TV and film production may resume in California, recommended no sooner than June 12, 2020 and subject to approval by county public health officers within the jurisdictions of operations following their review of local epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 population, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, contact tracing and testing. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers. Back office staff and management should adhere to Office Workspace guidelines published by the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Industrial Relations, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.”

For LA County,  on Friday, the same day the guidelines were announced they saw a slight increase in hospitalizations, which could cause delays in getting production started.  “This has been a slight increase over the last three days in the number of people hospitalized,” said Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, “and we’ll need to make sure that we’re not starting to see a significant increase in the number of people requiring hospitalizations.”

So the question remains: if there is a surge in Los Angeles in COVID-19 cases production could again be delayed getting started back up and running? So what do you think about the June 12th date for the state of California to start TV and film production? Do you hope your favorite soaps get back into production as soon as possible, or do you want to make extra sure that all your favorites will be safe and sound when they tape new episodes?

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.
