What I hope to see at the “DAYTIME EMMY AWARDS” this YEARS, is for GH to receive
the respect and acknowledgement it so richly deserves.
I’d like EP Frank V. to take no prisoners and submit as many scenes and episodes possible,
Roger,Maura,Michelle,Laura,Kathleen……….to name a few. And that’s just for this weeks
performances!!! Ron C and his writing team, R giving ABC the BEST Nov SWEEPS in
years. Last time I checked, EXCELLENCE reaped rewards.

They should sell the shirts and copies of Carlys necklace and other soap related items…its a good way for networks to make some money off these shows!!!

Exactly. These soaps still get millions of viewers and some of us want to express our love for a semi-lost art! My favorite comments about soaps is when people say “Do you still watch those Things?” as they continue on a bout the Kardashians or Atlanta Housewives! Soaps are TEN times better than that crap!

I get your point, jimh, but WHO on earth would want a replica of that totally hideous necklace that Franco gifted Carly???? (And would the secret “Sonny Cam” be included???? Haha…just asking…..)

Welcome back, Tony. Let’s get this story wrapped up so we can see (real) Luke and Tracy reunite and have some laughter in the Quartermaine mansion with Alice and Ned!

I’d like to suggest a love interest for Fluke: The character must be named “Flora” and I have a particular actress (familiar to the GH audience) in mind to play her . . .

Laura(Genie Francis)…i just dont see her and Luke together anymore..it would be nice if Genie returned but it just didnt work the last time she was on…i dont think TG wants to revisit the storyline…been there, done that…he wants to move away from that and do stuff that challenges him like Fluke’s done…he also hinted about retiring…i wouldve liked to have seen Luke and Laura reunited one last time and involved in a big storyline with the Cassidines before departing PC for good!!!

Well, it didn’t work for Luke and Laura because the writing wasn’t there.
There’s no way that Fluke and Luke should be on the canvas without Luke’s angel.
And for the life of me, I will never understand how a smart and savvy woman like Traci didn’t notice that that man was not her husband.

So great to see how much Tony is loved and respected among his peers…lest we forget he has been through some serious health concerns with his back… and he is not 25 anymore…

SO happy to see him back!!

Happy to have Tony back. A “fluke” story without Tony isn’t much of a story. Also, I’d like to see a new love interest for him because Tracy & Luke, well ….. isn’t terribly interesting to me.

Aww, that was sweet. Now, let’s wrap-up the Fluke storyline!! Great to see TG back.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

So, what did you think of Luke’s memorial episode? Favorite parts of it? Least favorite? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out Helena’s videotaped speech and Tracy’s eulogy to Luke below.

Today’s Friday episode of General Hospital, is set to feature the funeral of the iconic Luke Spencer (Tony Geary).

While family and friends will gather on the Haunted Star to memorialize him, what been teased by the ABC daytime drama is it will also set a whole storyline in motion.

ABC7 entertainment guru, George Pennacchio, spoke to several of the GH cast, who are involved in the episode including: Luke Spencer’s long-time love, Laura played by Genie Francis.

Francis exclaimed on the whole story: “I just have a hard time believing, in my heart, that the great Luke Spencer died in an accident.  No one stays dead on a soap. I don’t know how many times I’ve been dead. Really!”

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

Luke’s longtime friend played by Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) shared: “And has it actually happened? I mean, frankly, we have a little urn about this big that’s supposed to contain him and that’s it.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”

Watch Pennacchio chat with the GH stars below.

Now weigh-in, do you believe Luke is very much alive and well? Held captive, or “dead” dead? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
