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!

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.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

“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!

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!
