“Conundrum”– (and how!)

If we could figure him out (the actor Tony Geary) maybe we could understand why he could not see the greatness of the quirky, lovable, gentle, funny character he originally created and the greatness and the TIMELESS appeal of the greatest love story ever told, that of Luke and Laura.

naww
I read many times that Nina and Cliff AMC were the greatest love/super couple of all time..
They were married 4 times because their love would not let them part and their wedding was well above Luke and Laura’s.. 🙂

Nina & Cliff truly had the greatest love story ..

Luke and Laura got their fame from a number, from the number of people who tuned into the wedding and then after left..
Every time Luke and Laura are mention it is ”their wedding had a trillion viewers and not anything about the love story..
The wedding numbers gave them their couple fame..
It is said that Nina and Cliff may well have had the same numbers..
google it ..

Don’t have to. The story speaks for itself. Numbers just confirm the facts. And the fact that you and I (and all the other posters) are still writing about it also confirms the obvious.

ITA! I get the feeling from reading TG’s comments that he thinks LUKE was the big draw, and would have been no matter who he was paired with. WRONG! There was a special chemistry between Luke&Laura, that just clicked with the audience. No slight to Mr. Geary’s acting skills or sex appeal, but there are PLENTY of gifted, better-looking actors out there. The audience loved him because Luke loved Laura. That’s it in a nutshell. Bad-boy meets good-girl. Bo&Hope, Patch&Kayla, Frisco&Felicia, we wouldn’t even have those couples if it weren’t for Luke&Laura. Nina&Cliff? One of the great ’80s supercouples, but THE couple? I disagree.

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

TODAY: General Hospital Rebroadcasts Masterful 52nd Anniversary Episode

Fans are in for a treat today (Friday, May 22nd) when ABC’s General Hospital airs an encore presentation of one of the finest hours of soap opera in the history of the genre, with its 52nd anniversary episode from April 1, 2015.

In the episode, viewers finally learned what turned Luke (Tony Geary) into Fluke, which has been the on-going story for months; but it all lead up to the shocking reveal, when Luke revisited his past in his broken down childhood home and the demons that haunted him.

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
