Tony Geary speaks on GH game-changing reveal… the driver who killed Jake!

Today’s episode of General Hospital had a huge Friday cliffhanger, when it was revealed which character ran down and killed Little Jake!  When the dust settles, it turns out that it’s none other than Luke Spencer! You can just imagine the drama that unfolds on next week’s episodes of GH when all of PC learns that Luke was drinking at the time of the accident and did the deed.

TV Guide has an absolutely sensational and revealing interview out today with Anthony Geary (Luke) about what he calls, “his greatest acting challenge” and something Geary is excited to see play out.    Here are a just a few juicy excerpts!

Geary on how would Luke ever get over the fact he killed a 4-year-old child: “He doesn’t. I think this ghost will haunt him forever. For the first time, I cannot even guess where my character will be in six months. This is a real life changer for Luke, and I’m thrilled. People have asked me, “Why would you want to be the guy who killed a child?” Hello, we’re acting. This is drama. I’m not trying to save anybody’s reputation here. I’m looking for the strongest material I can get my hands on. And this is pretty darn strong stuff. I’m not here to be popular or to create a character that’s loved by millions. If that happens, fine, but the opportunity to embrace this material is something I would never, ever walk away from.”

Geary on how Lucky reacts to the news that Luke is the perp! “Lucky blames the alcohol but Luke sees this as Lucky’s deep need to hate the alcohol so that he doesn’t hate Luke. Again, Luke doesn’t want to blame the booze. He wants to take full responsibility for what he’s done, which is a really warped kind of nobility. He’s a perverse man. He’s real damaged goods, and you’ll see a lot of that damage in the way he handles this crisis. I think this will be the closest Luke has ever come to suicide. [Laughs] I become instantly unpopular whenever people ask me, “How would you like to see Luke to leave the show?” And I say, “I’d like him to kill himself.” It seems the only appropriate way for a superman to go.”

Geary on his initial thought he was told Luke would be the guy who ran down little Jake: GH head writer, Bob Guza pitched the idea to me because he wanted to make sure I was OK with it, and of course I was all for it. In all my years on GH, I don’t think Luke has ever had anything so important happen in his life.”

What do you think of the decision to make Luke the PC resident who hit little Jake? Let us know.

I love Tony Geary, and have complete faith that he will knock this storyline out of the park as only HE can!

This fan will make sure that she doesn’t miss a moment of his performance and this storyline!

I called it the other day on Twitter. I am confident it will be very compelling.

It is a very difficult thing, and it will be something that Luke will never truly be forgiven for.

Now would be the time to bring Laura back, healthy and a strong woman to support Luke.

AMEN to THAT Sondra!!! Luke has been in a place where desperation, alcohol and the ghosts of his past has made him do the unforgiveable… but with the help of one of our favorite female characters, who wanted to understand not judge.. some of us were lucky enough to go on the ride of a life time.. an amazing tale of miscommunicaiton, understanding, forgiveness, adventure and love.. the likes daytime had never seen before… might we get excited in GH.. and think we may be going down that path again??? I sure hope so. Mr. Geary is an amazing actor,… Read more »

Is this his swan song ? If it is let Genie Francis play this out with him no matter what their personal differences are off camera. Contrary to what they have written in the last few years she was his moral compass! The decade of Luke & Laura fans deserve that! These are two actors who plyed off well with each other! Guza throw us a bone for old times sake!

I wish it had been Lisa Niles so Johnny could see what his playing around caused but I know Tony G will play this storyline well. I figured it would be him and this is a good way to bring in a drunk driver storyline but how does he tell his wife he killed a Q heir?

Must be time for a visit to Amsterdam he was pretty straightforward but it would have resonated more if it actually had been carly–then jm would have to make a real decision other that which black tshirt to where. he could have gone to EW and explained and she would have taken the blame for that also. Nothing will happen to him so what is the big deal-jake is just dead and the only person who will suffer long term is EW which was the point of this f**ked up s/l to make her crazy so they could get rid… Read more »

I did suspect before the reveal that it might be Luke because you saw him being very noble towards Lucky and Elizabeth and being in a lot more scenes than we have seen him. I think we will be seeing Tony Geary at his best, which we know there is nobody better. I am happy that Bob Guza is giving him this story……

I thought it might be Luke because he ran around telling people it might be Carly. Funny how he forgot to tell those same people he was on the list. Only Tony could handle this story line. Since it started, there hasn’t been a day that I haven’t cried, really cried. I haven’t fast forwarded through anyone either.

I don’t believe it. I think we will eventually find out that Franco is responsible.

This is the end of LnL at last. They couldn’t bring themselves to kill the characters, so they’ll just make us wish they had. Luke was pathetic before, now he’s disgusting and repulsive. If they must play out this little “drama” I hope Luke is shunned by everyone on the east coast (and France) and is denied his blaze of glory exit in favor of a long boring exit into a prison for way past the life of this show. Glad TG is so happy with his acting challenge. Maybe this will be his next emmy. I don’t think I’ll… Read more »

Well, Tony’s fans don’t care, if you care or watch. Just turn off your television and save yourself the agony of watching Mr. Geary perform some of his best work.

They should bring back Genie Francis. She has a huge fanbase wanting her to return. This would make for great storytelling for Laura to come and save Luke from himself. Guza probably wont’ do it but it would be great for ratings.

I agree, it is the perfect time to bring Laura back! She is the only one that will be able to help Luke! Tony Geary is an amazing actor, and I no doubt he will knock this out of the park. My only concern is the writing. Given GH’s recent history-I hope this storyline is developed the way it should be.

Forget saving Luke, she needs to be there for Lucky!! Was shocked to see Bobbie wasn’t used here. Her child needed her, as did her grandchild.

First… so glad it wasn’t Carly! I love the Carly / Jason relationship! So wishing it could have been Lisa and we could send her on her way. I agree Tony Geary will do the acting and story justice… as he is a very talented actor. However… this is storyline is just too emotional and dark and will have long range impact. Yes… I also agree it would be great to get Genie back as Laura and she could help Luke if the story is done right. I am not liking this storyline much and will be glad to see… Read more »

This storyline stinks to high heaven. No doubt this storyline is right up TG’s alley and he will bring it full force into his acting, but I really hope ultimately it turns out to be someone other than Luke in the end. Psycho crazy Lisa Niles maybe. Sounds like something she’d do without a second thought. I guess what really bothers is that it sounds like Guza is systematicly trying to rid himself vets he deems unnecessary for future storylines. My question to you Michael is this: Is Guza trying to rid himself of older viewers as well? or Is… Read more »

Susan ICAM, every website I visit regarding GH has viewers complaining of the destruction of this once great soap, and in every case its on the writers. Story line and out of character writing, too many new characters, not enough Vet’s . The biggest complaint aside from the killing of Jake, is where the hell were Monica and Bobby. How did Robin know Jake was Jasons, why was Jason able to watch the surgery, but Liz a nurse who worked there not allowed to seen him? and I seriously have been saying this for awhile, but I truly believe they… Read more »

I find it odd that Guza think a kidney transplant is the “cure all” for Wilms tumor. All the tests and lab work can be done in a day. The viewers are not that stupid. I know what you are going to say Michael. “When watching a soap opera, you’re suppose a certain amount of suspension in what you believe.” I agree on that point, but in turn can the writers please not insult the intelligence of the soap opera. They drag on meaningless strories for years and years. But a powerful medical story is finished in two or threl… Read more »

I am one of GH’s biggest fans. I record it everyday so that way i can watch it when i get home from work. Its so sad that Jake had to be taken off the show.

GH is the show that I have to keep up with. I DVR all my shows and GH is the first soap I watch. I have never been a fan of Luke and Laura – can’t get past the fact that he raped Laura and she ended up marrying him. The best relationship that Luke has has had is Tracy Q. – I think there is a redeeming quality to Tracy’s love for Luke. If anyone can redeem this man’s soul is her. It would be a great mistake to bring Laura back now. BTW, I think Guza is an… Read more »

Ok. It is a good story line. driving while drunk, killing someone, even it is a soap opera, happens in real life all the time. Maybe GH is trying to bring awareness to the problem. I dont know. But anyway awesome acting keeps making me cry growls lol. I had to walk away from the tv it got to me that bad. I just hope this story line they are going to slowly make geary leave gh:(

I hate it that Luke was revealed as the person who killed Jake.I am hoping down the line that Franco is revealed as the one that did it and planted the dna material to make it look like Luke did it.Love Tony’s acting as well as all of Gh cast.To bad they killed off Theo he could have made a lot of peoples lives a living hell on gh.

Genie is not worth what GH has become, although Laura’s character might give it some new depth and life… Luke’s character has become two dimensional, and even he couldn’t save this tired story line. I used to have great respect for Tony and his acting craft, but he seems too self-absorbed these days to make his material work. (Although I can;t say the writing isn’t mostly to blame.)

I’m so sad for what GH has become meanwhile. There are so few real love stories with happy ending these days in real lifes so why couldn’t they let that supercouple LnL stay happy til the end??? Whould have been a such help in a world of cold emotions and break off families. LnL have been an idol love storie for Millions of People – so bad they spoiled it and took all those love and hope and joy away for us now!! I got shocked about the last talking scene between Luke and Lucky. They made a caracter of… Read more »

I’m glad they made Luke the one who killed Jake. I have dispised Luke for a long time. Now they need to make him pay for it.

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.
