Monday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital could make anyone exclaims, “The plot thickens!” In a twisty and suspenseful episode, GH head writer Ron Carlivati and executive producer Frank Valentini, have woven together the mystery of who is Fluke by casting suspicion on none other than a very much alive … and walking away around Port Charles, Cesar Faison (Anders Hove), and Tracy Q’s (Jane Elliot) ex-hubby, Larry Ashton (Hugo Napier)!
In addition, there was some back-story Intel provided by Julian Jerome (William deVry), who came clean to Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn), that he met a man who looked like Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary) over ten years ago while in the Witness Protection Program. He partnered up with him to restore the Jerome crime family to prominence. However, Julian also revealed that after Fluke couldn’t takeover ELQ, he became brutal … and his son Lucas (Ryan Carnes) was shot because of it!
After Anna (Finola Hughes) is stunned that Faison escaped his imprisonment below the ground at her and Robert’s hands, Agent Sloane (Rob Derringer) and Liesl (Kathleen Gati) don’t believe that she still didn’t do something with his body! Come to find out the covert “stable hand”, who had been hired by Robert to keep watch on Faison, admitted Faison has been gone from his prison in the ground for a year and got away! At the end of the episode we see at the Port Charles docks, the man himself, Cesar Faison lighting up a cigar!
Counterpoint that with the Luke vs. Fluke showdown at Miscavige, where Luke tries to piece together who is his “lukealike”! Fluke reveals he has been working with Larry Ashton and Jerry Jacks and has been gone for six months, but is back in the saddle to resume Luke’s life! Luke brings up the masks that Faison used to impersonate Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan), and wonders if Fluke has a mask on which Fluke sorta denies.
And then there is the flash drive that Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sam (Kelly Monaco) found! They open the copied drive and its contents on a laptop at the Quartermaines and … voila! There are photos of Faison and some documentation of his past whereabouts, and a blueprint for another mask!
So GH fans, what could be going on here? Do you think Faison, or the real Larry is Fluke? Do you think none of the guys are Fluke and it’s all red herrings? What do you think Faison will do next? Are you enjoying now how the Fluke story has accelerated with the return of Tony Geary? Comment below!
