Anthony Geary’s Final GH Episode: Luke Leaves Port Charles And A Letter For Laura! Was It Anti-Climatic?

On Monday, Anthony Geary’s final episode as Luke Spencer aired on General Hospital.  In his final scenes, Geary shared screen time with Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) as Luke basically told Sonny to take care of Port Charles while he is gone, because the place needs Sonny.  The subtext of that moment was evident: Geary was passing the torch to Benard as the series leading character to which Sonny replied that he will be around, for now.

Luke did have an opportunity to have a final moment and goodbye with his daughter Lulu played by Emme Rylan.  Later, When Lulu returned to the Haunted Star to tell Laura (Genie Francis) she met up with her father before he left town for good, she revealed he gave her a letter to deliver to Laura marked, “Angel”, which was always Luke’s nickname for his former wife and longtime love.

As Geary took his final on-screen bow walking into the foggy night to get on the boat that takes him out of Port Charles, he looks back with a smile.  We are left with his silhouette, as he walks off, and the episode fades to black.  For many, the moment was simple, touching, and tugged at the heart.
