Sexually molested – leading to a split personality – ala OLTL? Maybe it was this bad Luke that raped Laura all those years ago…in order to give good Luke complete redemption? Bad Luke ran over the kid? Oh, I give up. Who knows.

I too believe it has something to do with sexual abuse–maybe it happened to Luke too—Luke killed his father after Tim assualted Patricia–Aunt Ruby helped cover up the killing by burying Tims body in the basement of the Spencer home–i also believe Patricia suffers mental illness and when we see her she’ll be one of her multiple personalities—there also has been other traumatic things in the Spencer’s lives over the years to add to this story that caused their mental problems: The cancellation of The Beverly Hillbillies in the earyly 1970s, Ronald Reagen becoming President in the 1980s, the closing… Read more »

If it was bad Luke who raped Laura on the floor of the campus disco with Herb Alpert playing on the PA system then it negates the whole rape storyline and the complexities involved with it.
I am sure the writers and Tony are going to utilize Herculean efforts in order to put Humpty Dumpty back together again, but all the king’s horses and all the king’s men the viewers) are frankly fed up.

I had no idea Luke had raped Laura. Then, she married him? Hmmmm. Strange! Wouldn’t it have made more sense if Fluke had made an appearance at that time? There must have been a plethora of abnormal activity manifested in Luke’s behavioral pattern. Then again, storylines never get resolved….even from decades ago. When TPTB think of a fantastical storyline, including the metaphysical, they pluck insensible ideas out of the blue, and run with it. When it is realized that they are running in circles without rational thought, stupid storylines and thoughts without substance are invented and thrown in. The writers… Read more »

I am ready and excited to find out what made Luke split !!!
We have not seen Luke for a very long time, I miss him !
I did enjoy Tony playing the role of Fluke, he was more than awesome!
Tony gave an astounding performance as Fluke, even made my skin crawl a couples of time BRAVO!!
but I am happy to say goodbye to Fluke and have Luke back..

I am soooo ready for the truth of it all Wednesday !!

If that extraordinary hour is how one of them ended up in a wheelchair..or they had another sibling he killed accidentally while trying to kill their father…or he accidentally killed their mother instead of his father is probably what the scenery chewing is all about..irregardless it will be something we haven’t ever been privy to and just have to accept…but i think he killed their mom trying to kill his dad.

That’s a great point, Dave. If Luke accidentally killed his mother by mistake, that means that his father is still alive? Will he show up out of nowhere? …..or has he somehow ‘entered’ Luke’s body a’ la Cassadine? LOL. Let’s keep an eye out for him.
Seriously, though. I think the possibility that Luke killed his mother trying to kill his father, makes so much sense.

Love, love, love your scenarios–makes more sense than this protrated and nonsensical–and very dour storyline. What happened to GH? What happened to Tony Geary? Why is he such a misanthrope? What did we viewere do to him–except to love him as Luke, that funny, frenetic,gentle, endearing character that he created? And still no mention of Laura in all this nonsence? Unforgiveable! Note to Genie Francis: We are sad not to see you with the Luke and Laura we loved so much. And we know you are probably as sad as the viewers to see this whole, perverted storyline play out… Read more »

I would like to see Luke have many personalities not just Fluke– I think it would be wonderful to watch TG play all kinds of people coming out one right after the other once the secret is revealed. It would be like Fluke was the keeper of the vault, but once the secret is reveal he can’t stop all the personalities from wanting to speak about their perspective of the event. What that event doesn’t matter, I just hope to see him play everything from a little baby, an animal, a woman, ethnic character, an old man, and everything in… Read more »

But does making an Emmy for Tony make for good storytelling, or just senseless, ego-driven, sensationalism? I know soaps can be a little fantastical at times, good/bad acting or not, but this one slid over the cliff for some of us. Hate to see Tony leave this way.

Oh I never said it was good storytelling, but at this point if I can’t have a good story I want to watch outstanding acting, which the scene I mentioned would do for me. I am expecting to be disappointed in whatever explanation they come up with, so me, to salvage this whole mess, is to give Tony a great scene that will win him the Emmy, since that is why this whole story was created. If this is his swan song I want to be impressed and since the story jumped the shark long ago, the only thing to… Read more »

The one thing they will not be able to explain is the story that we sat through for over a year. It will be hard to watch this reveal and what looks like will be emotional scenes and not have them clouded and diminished by the story we were given. If Luke had a break and acted insane because of something from his childhood, a terrible incident, that could have been interesting. The reveal could be emotional. But it will be hard, because they gave us Fluke, a homicidal maniac intent on taking down Sonny to assume the position of… Read more »

Could it be because despite the fame, fortune and accolades this role brought to Geary, he also deeply resents Luke’s “larger than life presence” which may have, at least to his way of thinking, robbed him of the chance to go on to bigger and better things? Perhaps being typecast as the anti-hero Lucas Lorenzo Spencer for over three decades has been an unwelcome albatross around his neck all these years, and now this is his vehicle for symbolically slaying that beast by destroying this long-beloved character once and for all? It’s just a thought….but I’ve always perceived that AG… Read more »

Yet, it seems most likely, AJQ, that what the bosses are trying to do is just that…now portraying Luke as this lost , mentally ill man as a pathetic ,pitiful and remorseful being, in order to redeem him. As you so well explain it, TPTB are hoping we have forgotten the ridiculousness and unreality of Fluke’s behavior;…of Helena’s unexplained link to Fluke, the unreasonable use of Faison. When I suggested that the writers themselves had no clue where this stupid storyline was going, I was unceremoniously shut down by a couple of posters; while others agreed. the writers just pulled… Read more »

I don’t know…there ARE other ways to look at this. One way is that legacy Luke is sorta ruined because detestable Fluke was played out so brilliantly by Geary. The fact is, whatever, however this story ends…it was a journey. Soaps are journeys. They’re not one/two episode deals that succinctly wrap up…they do go on and on an on… This particular story became a source of contention because we got no closer to who Fluke was. Again, a double-edged sword. It set the ground for much speculation…like a game show we searched for clues as to who this abhorrent creature… Read more »

It’s reached the point a while back I didn’t care anymore because I don’t like the story at all, and how writers deranged Luke/Tony to play the character(s). As far as Fluke, spring can’t come soon enough to Port Charles, and blow away the dark winter and cobwebs.

Yes, Rose. Lulu would be devastated by this. She would carry the guilt of her father. A very heavy cross to bear/carry. But, I just cannot see it because of their ages. The writers are stuck….damned if they do and damned if they don’t. It cannot be anyone other than the father. However, it may not be rape at all. In all probability, as dmr says, Luke killed his father. Finally, after a year, the story has some substance. But, I still want it over, sooner than later. Where is Lucky? I do not know him at all.

Since the big reveal is on April Fools Day, we will find out it has all been a dream…that Luke finally wakes up from all of the stuff that was done to him at the “hospital/clinics” he was held at when this all started. To add a Jimh touch, the more sensitive Olbrecht helped pull him out of it, her witches outfit from the GH… Read more »

I will definitely watch the episode as I’ve waited so long for the answer to the “FLUKE” question, however, I’m close to not caring anymore. This is one time when dragging on a story caused many, many hours of fast forwarding on my DVR or turning away to other shows during Luke scenes.

I hope the build up won’t end in disappointment.

Max Daddee

Ditto, Carolyn. I didn’t find much excitement in the Luke, Fluke storyline – it’s drowned on way too long. The multiple personality thing has seemed to wipe out signs of the Luke we know and loved for decades. So little was done with the storylines. The show for the last couple of days where he’s waiving a gun in a room in a convalescent home. Dante still hasn’t got himself over there, he never called for backup, let Lulu go there alone. Called the Mayberry Security Guards at the home… GH has gone low budget. I remember the days of… Read more »

The problem with all this happening on Wed., April 1st is that it’s April 1st, aka, April Fools Day. Are we just being played again? Is Luke going to face the screen at the end and say–Is this really what happened? Wouldn’t YOU like to know…Stay Tuned…

Yeah, TPTB are just that mean-spirited. Wouldn’t doubt it a bit if they pull a “stunt” like that. Again, I ask: What have the viewers done to TPTB and to TG that they should treat us so shabbily? Where would they be without viewers?????

I would say it is probably a similar story RC wrote for OLTL and we know it connects to the baseball bat probably killed Mom by mistake .

I think Tim Spencer raped Patricia…and got her pregnant, and Luke was the result! Patricia kept it secret, because she knew no one would believe her! Her mother was so beaten down from the abuse, she was no help to Patricia. But she knew what Tim had done. One day the whole sordid secret came to a head…during a huge argument between a drunken Tim, Lena snd Patricia… When Luke found out that he was the product of his sister’s rape by their father. Tim went berserk…and nearly killed Patricia, Luke bashed in Tim’s brains with a baseball bat! That’s… Read more »

If Patricia were in her eighties, Mickey, your premise would have held ground. But, Luke is supposed to be how old? I would say between 65 and 70. Patricia, a few years older. I would say two or three. Not more than that because he looks much older. So, TPTB would really look idiotic if they make Patricia old enough to be impregnated by the father and give birth to Luke….not feasible, age-wise. In real life, Anthony is actually older than Dee….but, it is a soap, so a couple of years doesn’t really matter, but ten year, in this case,… Read more »

I had originally thought that Tim had raped Patricia and that resulted in Patricia giving birth to Bobbie. Bobbie is always mentioning how much younger she is than Patricia and how she does not remember much from her childhood. CeeCee, when I originally thought this, I too, thought that the ages would not match-up; then; I remembered this is a soap-ages never seem to match-up! HAHA! Who knows with this storyline…I just hope the campiness ends.

Or what if, God forbid, Luke is Pat’s rapist and Bobbie is HIS daughter? I’m not quite sure how much of an age difference there is purported to be amongst these “siblings,” but at this point, I cannot imagine that even finding out that the Spencer patriarch was an incestuous sexual predator would pack that much of a punch, and it also wouldn’t explain why Patricia left for parts unknown and abandoned the family if Luke had simply acted in the best interest of his sisters. There has to be much more than Puke simply killing his pappy or his… Read more »

She is a warm and wonderful actress and could possibly save the storyline–but it’s the dumbest storyline ever–so it would be a Herculean effort–to no avail, I’m afraid.

Leading up to Wednesdays show I have a comment about this past week when Lulu told Dante about her new cousin and Tracy told Bobbi about her new niece. Either one of them said that Valerie was black. It is so freakin weird. I mean, your whole family is white and you meet Patricia’s daughter and neither of them says, “Yeah, we didnt find Patricia but we did meet her daughter, a Spencer, and she is Black”, hmmm? Very odd.

I never liked Dumbte and Lulu has to be Julie Berman. Lulu should be written more like the old Luke and be a free spirit. Her and her husband are the quintessential paint drying on the wall.

Well, dmr, Lulu needs to go back to Y&R and be Abby again. She brought the character to life. The present Abby is horrible.
Dante was just puttering around in that apartment….”Tell me, Valerie…which way did he go?” Duh? He should have made a beeline straight for the door, out of there as soon as he found out where Luke had gone. But, no…he is asking stupid questions, wasting time. LOL.

Shay
Guest

I still say GH totally missed the boat in not casting Julie Marie Berman as Valerie. That would have made such an interesting juxtaposition seeing OldLulu and NuLulu playing off each other as cousins, not to mention watching Puke brutalize his “niece” in the form of the same actress who had once portrayed his beloved daughter. Epic casting fail….

I was so aggravated with Dante and Lulu-asking the poor girl with a head trauma where Oak Hill was located-hello? Use your phones to call the police. An ambulance. Then, “brave” and feisty Lulu, who by the way has a small child, goes and chases after her mentally unstable father. This is all just so absurd.

This is true, CeeCee, but we’ve now crossed the pc rubicon to such an extent that one cannot even state the highly obvious without being accused of some sort of “ism.” Just look at how certain individuals here repeatedly get their knickers in a twist over our cheeky–but valid–observations…..I told you before that the carping and pontificating would never end, and it hasn’t. I swear, sometimes I feel like Michael Douglas’ character in “Fatal Attraction” when Glenn Close’s “Alex Forrest” castigated him with that famous utterance, “Dan, I will NOT be ignored!” LOL…..

I think that Tim Spencer was sexually abusing Patricia, while also physically abusically his wife, Luke, and Bobbie. I’m not sure of the age difference between Patricia and Bobbie; perhapys Patricia is Bobbie’s mother? Depends on the age gap, I suppose. I think Luke did his best to defend his mother and siblings and murdered Tim Spencer in self-defense. I think his mental break will further redeem him from raping Laura, his battle with alcholism over the years, mob ties, being an absentee father at times, and running down Jake , etc., etc., etc. I am about two weeks (plus)… Read more »

At this juncture, dmr, I’m not sure anything can redeem Puke from his past misdeeds….particularly those which we have witnessed over these last few years. On the other hand, I am more curious as to whether the show runners have enough of an April 1st showstopper in the bag to deserve redemption for putting the viewers through the endless red herrings, dropped plots and campy hijinks to which we’ve been subjected during this seemingly endless Fluke fiasco.

Biologically some girls start menstruating at ten…I know this first hand…LOL. So, it is very possible for Patricia to have given birth to Bobbie, assuming Patricia is in her early 70’s.

It never crossed my mind that Patricia could have been a nun. You are right, that little gesture spoke volumes. Furthermore, the notion that Valerie is adopted has been meandering in my head for a while. Jimh had the same idea, actually.
Yes, all the actors/actresses superseded my expectations. At first, I didn’t even recognize Laura Wright in her wig. She looked great…I liked that look.
And, Elizabeth looked almost ethereal…so beautiful in her retro nurse’s garb. A double round of applause for everyone.
Coincidentally, Jude and I are watching an old episode of CSI NY….guest stars; FINOLA HUGHES and CHARLES SHAUNESSEY.

The idea of a year being too long for a story to unfold (particularly since there was the gap due to Tony Geary’s health) just shows how you-tubed/mtvd (old video days) and short attention spanned the audience has become. Mental illness can come in waves. Some alters can have knowledge of what others do. Luke could have been influenced by his mental illness in raping Laura but fully conscious of it and responsible for it–it doesn’t negate decades of the story of that couple, including her confronting him decades later. (remember Laura was a very wounded soul who was molested… Read more »

Yeah, as I said in an earlier post, I agree that they would pull a stunt like that. Guess ABC suits could pull another stunt and cancel the whole shebang.

Oh, my gosh….you think the ‘suits’ would do that, Nancy? I understand how you feel and what you’re saying….this entire Fluke fiasco has left a bitter taste in my mouth too.
I will think positive thoughts….hoping against hope that GH is here to stay and , in the near future, will offer us storylines and characters we will absolutely love.

Nancy, springs coming. I know some of us wonder if the other shoe will drop, but let’s try to think positive.

TPTB and Tony Geary blew it today. They had a great change to preserve the legacy of perhaps the greatest character ever created on daytime and they blew it. I thought they were going there but they blew it. How much greater the story would have been if Bill Eckert had gone back to the house with Patricia, witnessed Luke and his drunken father Tim in a violent fight and had himself picked up the baseball bat and struck, and therefore killed him. and he and Patricia had put the body of Tim in the wall in the Spencer house.… Read more »

I agree with your criticisms and disappointment of how this played out Nancy, as well as your admiration for Tony as an actor. As far as the character, however, he was always so schizophrenic that I its hard for me to be disappointed in him at this point. I remember when I first started watching GH, in 1997, and I thought Luke was one of the “good guys” because he was friends with Sonny and Jason. When I found out about his backstory (rapist, etc), I was disgusted and lost all respect for him. I remember the storyline where Lucky… Read more »

And, of course, I blame the writers also. We all know the adage is true: Without a story there is no drama. However, in a new interview with TV Insider TG confirms what I believe: TG is pulling the strings. He confirms that the so-called Fluke character was originally supposed to be Bill Eckert. “That was the case when I told the story to Ron and Frank over the phone.” He also says that comment sites are “closed monitored” and that, when “fans found out, they changed it’ and “they didn’t know quite how it was going to work out.”… Read more »

Very well said Nancy, I totally agree and I hope things get tied up in a better way.

General Hospital’s Halloween Week Promo Touts Wicked Surprises

Looks like everyone will be on edge this week as Halloween comes to Port Charles.  In the newly-released ABC promo for General Hospital, it reveals that this spooky week of episodes will be a rollercoaster ride, featuring wicked surprises, and killer costumes.

After Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) scolds Franco (Roger Howarth) for having his hand in the candy jar, Anna (Finola Hughes) or is it? … is donning a black witches hat. Jackie (Kim Delaney) is seen opening her door, juxtaposed with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) saying “trick or treat”. But, is he actually at the door of someone else?

Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) asks Ava (Maura West), “Darling, what are you holding behind your back?” That is revealed to be a knife, but is it Ava who truly has the knife?

 

Meanwhile, Jason (Steve Burton) is looking around in the dark.  Elsewhere, Peter is jumpy.  So much so that Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) utters, “Looks like you’ve seen a ghost.”

Add all that to last Friday’s episode of GH where Carly(Laura Wright) thinks she saw Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) hand come out of her grave and attack her! Is Nelle (Chloe Lanier) going to be proven to be alive? And if so, will she pop up on Halloween and scare the hell out of Carly?

Watch the promo below, then let us know what you think will happen this week on General Hospital via the comment section.

Meanwhile, Carly is stunned when Cyrus brings a familiar acquaintance to dinner at the Metro Court. And elsewhere, Finn and Anna’s plans to take Violet trick-or-treating are hampered when Finn is called back to GH, leaving Anna alone, unaware that a particularly evil threat awaits her.”
