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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.

Briana Nicole Henry on Her Decision to Exit GH: “I Decided It Was Time to Move On”

On Monday’s episode, GH viewers learned that Jordan will need to start dialysis and treatment at a specialty clinic in Albany from kidney damage and suffering renal failure.  But on Tuesday, fans of the ABC daytime drama series learned that Briana Nicole Henry has left the show, all her decision, according to her post on Instagram.

A Daytime Emmy nominee this year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category, Briana shared the news on her departure expressing: “I suppose it is that time isn’t it. As I celebrated my third year of being on General Hospital yesterday, I also watched my last episode as Jordan Ashford air. People kept asking me how it felt to have ended my time on the show, and it wasn’t until yesterday that it really sank in, as I watched Jordan’s goodbye to her family and knew the tears you saw were real tears between not just colleagues but friends. I decided it was time for me to move on from @generalhospitalabc and I got nothing but love and support from everyone involved. Not to mention was given the most beautiful send of that left me quite literally shaken.  I’d like to take a second to thank every single person in my @generalhospitalabc family that helped me make GH my home over the last three years, especially @fvalentinigh . From the crew, to my cast mates to our security guard Emma, there were multiple people on any given day that brought such a smile and warmth to my heart.”

Briana finished her post with, “When I started GH it was my first opportunity as a series regular, and to get the opportunity to throw myself into Jordan for the last three years and work with some truly incredible actors has been an honor. Thanks for holding space for me to grow. I am a better actor because of the time I spent within those walls and will forever be grateful for the way the show nurtured and challenged my ability.  To the fans, it took me a while to win you over, but once you saw my heart you made me feel so much love. I hope I brought something unique and honest to your beloved character of Jordan Ashford, she’s one helluva woman. Until next time loves 👋🏾.”

This will be the second Jordan to exit General Hospital.  The role was originated by Vinessa Antoine, and Henry took it over for the last three years.

So, sad to see Briana leave GH? Should the show recast? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Jason asks Carly to Marry Him and She Responds “With All My Heart”

The stage is set now for General Hospital’s Jason/Carly/Sonny/Nina story to explode as things heated up between longtime friends and former lovers, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) just as Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is in Nixon Falls pleading with Nina (Cynthia Watros) to come clean and tell “Mike”(Maurice Benard) that he is indeed, Sonny Corinthos.  Here’s what went down on Friday’s episode …

Back in Port Charles, at the demolished former “Jake’s”, Carly and Jason’s old stomping grounds, Carly and Jason share a kiss. Carly says she can’t believe this is happening after letting him know that all of her old romantic feelings for him are starting to come back. Apparently that is true for Jason too, as the ABC daytime drama series finally reaches back into the history of these two characters who were in love, before Carly slept with Sonny.  Back in the present day, Jason asks Carly to marry him, and she responds, “With all my heart.” But now, Carly is starting to feel more excited about what started off as a business arrangement between the two of them to retain the Corinthos family hold over the five families and the territory in Sonny’s absence.  Carly says she wants their wedding day to be about them, and later they can come to Jake’s just by themselves.

In Nixon Falls, Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is trying to get through to Nina, who has admitted her duplicity to him and how she has fallen in love with “Mike”.  When Jax informs her that Carly and Jason are getting married, she thinks that’s great then she and “Mike” can have a future together.  Nina wants Jax to just forget this conversation, and seeing Sonny, and do this for her; after all she went through in losing her child, Nelle, and her relationship with him. Then Jax asks her to think about Donna and Avery and Wiley, his children and grandchild, who don’t know he is alive and will never get to know him. Nina cries that Jax has won, and that she will tell “Mike” the truth in private (but something tells us, she is going to make “Mike” walk-in on Jason and Carly’s nuptials, so that she has a shot of keeping him all to herself by the betrayal he will witness).  Jax says he is not leaving Nixon Falls till she tells Sonny the truth, but she somehow she still got him to leave through her pleading to let her do this alone.  As Nina thinks “Mike” is walking in the front door of the Tan-O, in walks Peter (Wes Ramsey)!

Meanwhile, Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is rushed to General Hospital unconscious with Portia (Brook Kerr) not far behind, after being trapped together.  More bad news is revealed when Austin (Roger Howarth) gets the blood results back for Jordan and tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) that Jordan’s levels of carbon monoxide are 58% which is not good for someone with one kidney.  Austin relates that if Jordan’s kidney function doesn’t improve, they’ll have put her on dialysis.  TJ (Tajh Bellow) comes to see his mom, and sits by her bedside in tears.  Later, Curtis breaks down in tears holding Jordan’s hand to come back to him, and she opens her eyes, as Portia walks in on the scene.

Courtesy/ABC

Three of the five families plan to take over Port Charles and split the territory after their secret meeting, where they plan to blow up a warehouse while Carly and Jason are distracted and at their wedding; the families also received a message from Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) while in prison.  Who will stop the “hit”?

So, what do you think of Carly and Sonny getting close? What did you think of the performances of Laura Wright, Steve Burton, Cynthia Watros, and Donnell Turner within this episode? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
