On Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) rocked the house, once again, in an emotional performance as viewers of the ABC daytime drama series saw Anna is such great despair that she could not stay in Port Charles one more minute. Anna is planning on heading to Glasgow, Scotland to give her beloved late Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan), the send off he would have wanted, and that she wants to give him with his ashes in tow!
But before Anna leaves Port Charles, she gets a surprise visitor in none other than Luke Spencer (Tony Geary)! And thus set the stage for the final scenes between two General Hospital legendary performers that the audience has loved and care about for decades. As soap fans know, this is Tony Geary’s last weeks on GH before he makes his exit from the show for the final time. And since Finola Hughes is being written-off the canvas, while she directs her new film Bryd and the Bees, GH paid homage to the long-standing relationships of good friends, adventure partners, and at one time romantic interests, Anna and Luke.
We can’t believe there was a dry eye in the house as Anna and Luke discussed their relationship over the years while Anna shared her sadness over the loss of Duke with old pal Luke (who feels guilty in part for Duke’s death, while he was overtaken by his bad side).
But when Luke wished Anna well, and as he continually called Anna his nickname for the former commish, “Slim”, and as the camera went close-up into the eyes of Tony Geary and Finola Hughes, the audience could see the love and respect that these two actors have had for each other, as they knew this would be their final shared moments together on-screen.
