138 May 30th, 2014 GENERAL HOSPITAL: Fluke Reveals Himself To Luke! But Just Who Is This Guy?

Courtesy/ABC

This Friday showcased the talents of the best in the business, seven-time Daytime Emmy winner Anthony Geary (Luke/Fluke)! And there is material in this episode that could well get him nominated again in 2015!

So what goes down? Finally, a drugged out messed-up Luke Spencer meets his doppelganger, the evil crime lord whose main goal is to bring down Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and take over Port Charles , and is using Luke as the vehicle to do so!  In key scenes, Fluke tells Luke how he engineered the switcheroo, waiting for his moment to come and it did, when Luke was taken away by Heather’s (Robin Mattson) goons to Miscavige.

Fluke also reveals how he set-up Ric Lansing (Rick Hearst) to take the fall for him and planted a gun to make it look like Ric shot Lucas (Ryan Carnes)!  And Fluke mentions multiple times how he is having his way with Tracy (Jane Elliot)! In a heartbreaking moment, Fluke tells Luke he is grandfather to little Rocco!  But in the final moments of their scenes, Fluke gloats in a very sinister way right into the camera in essence saying that nobody knows his real identify yet!  He explains to Luke he is saying goodbye for now and thus leaving him locked up, while he goes on his honeymoon with Tracy out of town for awhile.  The whole set-up gave viewers the opportunity to watch another tour de force performance by Geary!

Watch an excerpt of Luke meeting Fluke after the jump!  And then put on your thinking caps one more time – what do we know?  A) Fluke hates Sonny Corinthos more than anything  B) Fluke looks exactly like Luke  C) There has been talk of B.E. Barrett Enterprises that some are guessing are really the initials for Luke’s cousin Bill Eckert, but could that be a red-herring!   So, weigh-in after watching Friday’s episode! Who do you think Fluke really is?

    it’s obviously Bill, he’s after Sonny because he used to work for Frank Smith responsible for his “death”, he’s after Tracy because she treated Bill’s sister Jenny horribly and he’s after Luke because he was shot because the mob mistook him for Luke. Also Bill used to have control over Barrett with Brenda’s sister Julia

    I never watched much of those Bill episodes…thanks for the info…it does sound like it is Bill!!!

    Jimmy replied

    I, too, didn’t watch back then… and there are so many possibilities being brought up, it could be so many people. I think the Bill Eckert theory holds the most weight, and it would make way more sense than another stupid mask story.

    Erick replied

    Another reason: When Fluke was in his office counting money, he was talking to somebody on the May 2nd episode, it was like the person was dead because he was talking to the air. He was doing it for someone dead. The only person that could be is Sly, Bill’s son. They were best friends. After Bill died, Sly hung out with Lucky for a while but then faded away (with no explanation, as far as I know).
    All of Enrique’s reasons are great, but I’ve often wondered where Sly is. He could’ve been another Spencer relative to show up, an early-thirties hunk. Maybe he died somehow, and Fluke/Bill holds Sonny responsible.
    That’s my months-long theory and I’m sticking to it!

    Erick replied

    Like Fluke, Bill also loved the ladies, as his two-timing with Holly (Geary & Samms together again) and Victoria showed….

    mfarris70 replied

    Sly went to live with his aunt Jenny and her husband Paul Hornsby.

    andrew hass replied

    Plus when Bill died he owned some shares of ELQ.However upon his death they went to Bill’s son Sly but because he was not of age his aunt Jenny had control of them.She then sold them to Damian Smith.So maybe “Luke” wanting ELQ is personal too.Plus Ned treated Jenny badly too.

    I have always thought it is Luke’s twin-thus allowing the final circle to be complete that maybe somehow he was the one who ‘raped’ Laura.(Yes I know all the shows in the history then and how can that be reversed)
    But it would allow the character of Luke to have atonement and GH to get rid of that bad part in the shows life when they had the rapist marry the woman. A month ago I recall Kiki being told the story of Luke that he had raped someone along time ago-I wondered why they said that-unless planting a seed…just saying …

    General Hospital has spellbinding stories and the best actors in the business to bring us outstanding performances.
    Anthony Geary is beyond great in his portrayal of Fluke and he actually, at times, makes my skin tight! His mannerisms, his eyes, are ERRIE !!..

    BRAVO !!! Anthony Geary !!!!

    GH well deserves to be #1 ..
    It is what a soap should be; mysteries, surprises, thrills, intrigue, heavy drama, fast paced stories, huge variety, and humor, It is #1 in my world!!
    Never a dull moment ..

    This is what I like to think. He is a relative of frank smith or lily rivera who are both gone, Since he is wearing a mask. I would like to think GH hired Michael Muhery as a ruthless mobster which he would play to a tee and going after Sonny. Some of flukes movements hand, crossing the legs reminded me of MM character of adam. Just saying

    I have absolutely no idea who he is! What I will say is I was so beyond impressed with Anthony Geary’s acting…as Fluke I felt revulsion and detestment…as Luke I felt so much empathy it was heart-wrenching. I felt his powerlessness, his despair, his hopelessness, angst…his rage at being taken over…his inability to stop this lunatic from taking using Tracy in every way imaginable. Luke, this once unstoppable force…beaten down and kept like a chained dog…drugged out of existence…gave me chills. When he roared for Fluke to leave Tracy alone…he depicted a man who gathered up every last ounce of strength he could muster to shout out his rage…yet he broke my heart.

    I think his dual roles were Oscar worthy let alone Emmy worthy. Tony Geary hasn’t had any scenes like this in years…it’s almost a pity to see so clearly how wasted his talent was on the show for so long.

    I only hope this isn’t how he goes out. I remember in past interviews he said he wouldn’t mind making room for the younger generation…he has a great life in Europe….and that he wouldn’t mind if Luke died in a blaze of glory. Feeling he may never get as rich a story as he is now…this might be it. Sigh…I’d miss him.

    Lin replied

    So well stated! I hate to see him go, and as far as i can see, there is no great acting in this younger generation on GH. Yes, there are good ones, but none of the young adults that I would cry if they left. I hope if Tony does decide to go, that Luke will be gone for a while and then (sacrilege) I hope they find someone t o replace him. He’s irreplaceable, but Luke is needed, just as I feel Kimberly McCullough (who I have loved since she was a child) needs to be replaced. She does not want the job, and Robin is sorely needed. JMHO.

    If Anthony Geary does leave i won’t blame him one bit.However i think as long as he has good material i see him staying.I just don’t think he wants to be wasted on GH.I’m sure Tony Geary has enough money now to retire.So to him been on GH may have more to do with the kind of material he can get and less about the money.

    Shay replied

    Very well put, rebecca1!!!! This latest “tour de force” by AG certainly reminds one of his (and GH’s!) glory days….THIS is what has been missing for far too long in the present Port Charles landscape! With the exception of the brief return of Robert Scorpio, we have not been treated to this sort of thrilling storytelling and heart-rending portrayals that those of us who recall the rich history of GH have been requesting. As for this being the possible “swansong” for Lucas Lorenzo Spencer, I certainly wouldn’t count the old codger out yet, but it would be much better than seeing him have to revert to the ridiculous waste of his talent that has become rather par for the course over these last few years….especially if the actor refuses to take part in an ultimate, come full-circle fairytale ending with Laura.

    Nahhhh. It’s a reincarnated/brought back from the dead Cassidine, or a previously unknown to us Cassidine. They HATE Luke more than anyone else, and have plenty of hatred to go around Port Charles. STILl think Nina is a Cassidine, too. And SHE & Silas are the detective kid’s real bio parents.

    rebecca1 replied

    No. I think Dr. O is Detective West’s mom…and Britt his sister. But…Dr. O was in love with Faison…and West isn’t his kid…so she gave him up. I’m thinking Victor Cassadine, who still seems to be in love with the doc…is his father.

    I’m thinking Rafe is Silas and Nina’s son…

    The imposter storyline has been done many times. I am hoping this one moves on quickly. Painful to see the real Luke locked up. Maybe the imposter will turn out to be a tall version of someone Sonny fathered and forgot whose sporting a mask. Bummer to see Rick Lansing taking the fall for this clown, good to see Elizabeth standing up for him with her visit to Alexa and Julian. Hoping this storyline moves along quickly and that the House of Cards fall soon for the imposter. Was hoping Julian and Alexa find some true happiness. With his lying about Rick, we know that will catch up to him at some point. I can only hope everything backfires on the phony Luke very soon.

    Lin replied

    I totally agree. BTW, her name is Alexis.

    Reply

    rebecca1 replied

    I agree…very upset they’re pinning it on Rick. Hopefully Elizabeth will stick by him; let’s not forget she abandoned AJ when he was accused of his crime. (I really like Rick.)

    Also agree about Julian. I love his character as well and am hoping they keep him on the show. FINALLY Alexis is having a great love story…and it all fits so well with she/Sam/Danny and Julian…I don’t know how she’ll come back from this lie when she finds out. It’s bad enough that he’s helping to frame her ex-husband…but he swore on Sammy and Danny’s life. At least when Rick swore on Molly’s he was telling the truth!

    And yes, his reasons are understandable…he’s a desperate man trying to save those he loves…but at the same time Alexis will feel betrayed, angered about vilfying Rick a(not to mention what it will do to Molly) and realize that if he could swear on his children’s lives so easily…how can she ever trust him.

    Pity they decided to go this route.

    fridays episode was so awesome, of course geary was superb, and the ending was priceless, finally the show feels back on track, loved everyone on fridays episode. and if anyone can help, love the song playing at the end of the show, does any one know the name of the song or the artist. GH should give credit on the song and the end of the episodes like the prime time shows do.

    Tony Geary has always been one of the best in the business when the writers give him quality material to work with, and this is definitely one of those occasions. When he looked into the camera at the end of the show and said “Who am I? Wouldn’t you like to know?”, I got chills. He certainly didn’t win those 7 Emmy awards for nothing.

    I know everyone has their differing opinions on the “Fluke” storyline, but I for one have been loving it. I’m glad they moved it along to where it was finally revealed what we’ve all suspected, that the real Luke was being help captive. I just wish we were gonna see more sooner rather than later, but it looks like we’ll have to wait, as TG is probably headed out for his usual summer vacation.

    They definitely peaked my curiosity, and left me wanting more, that’s for sure. Great storytelling. The show is on a roll again, which this week’s ratings report proves. “RIP GH” my rear end!

    Because of the initial thing…B.E.,…its more than likely he is Bill but was Bill evil and all…didnt he die in Lukes arms…did he originally hate Luke so much he’d do this to him…where did he get all this money…maybe the B.E. was mentioned just to throw us off and think its Bill…maybe Luke had an identical twin no one knew about who became wealthy and twisted and was once in love with someone connected to Sonny who died because of him and Fluke wants revenge…maybe Jerry had reconstructive surgery(no mask) to look like phoney Luke…OH GOD, JUST PUT ME IN MISCAVIGE BECAUSE THEIR DRIVING ME NUTS WITH THIS STORYLINE…LOL!!!

    I used to wonder about the same thing all those times on Days when Stefano hired look a likes to take over the lives of some of citizens in Salem. I used to think he had one hellva of a plastic surgeon on staff that every detail of the body was altered to look like the original either that or everyone in Salem had sex with their eyes closed — or maybe they were watching Letterman and just never paid much attention LOL is right.

    Lin replied

    I thought Luke has made every excuse and has not had sex with Tracy and that Mr. Peepers has kept to himself?
    As Mary SF says I used to wonder when they did this on other shows. For instance they had a Fake Erica on AMC. She had sex with Erica’s fiancé (maybe husband) Jackson. Surely there would be differences, if nothing else freckles, things said in private, etc. Unless you hold the world at arm’s length, people would notice differences. … and in this case, I knew from the second day “Luke” was back. And I have not seen Mr. Peepers.

    Shay replied

    It would seem that Tracy is so caught up in the ecstasy of it all, it has rendered her brain inoperational…..Alexis is another one who suffers from this same malady…so stoked she is over the fact that she finally has a man that she is wandering around PC in a complete fog!!!! God, do I hate stupid women!!!!!

    He would probably be really angry that Sonny had Jason try to kill him ( I say try because there was no body). He would have been hiding out all of these years away from his daughter. Plus Luke and Skye had a thing too.

  18. Robert says:

    I think the first thing that would come to Luke’s mind is his cousin, once he saw the imposter face to face despite the haze of the drugs but strangely he did not mentioned it. I still put my money on Bill Ekert because why would someone go thru the trouble of buying Barrett enterprise as a front when there is probably dozens of other companies he could have purchased. Bill Ekert had several connections to the Barretts.

    Lin replied

    Wouldn’t they more likely have someone more people know about? I’m just asking. When BE was on GH I did not have a recording device and seldom saw it. So I don’t know if he was lecherous and disliked women and was a cold blooded murderer etc. The times I saw him, he seemed okay.

    Johnny replied

    Back in the day, as shown on air, Bill was a quiet family man, a single father who loved his son, and an all around nice guy. As time went on he began to lose a few of his morals and values as he got more entwined with business and mafia elements. Flash forward 21 years and he is a vicious sociopath with no redeeming qualities. Just another day in the Character Destruction room with Ron Carlivati. However…this story twist is okay because Bill is not a character with long term potential. He is gone and forgotten from the canvas. He was a milquetoast failed experiment on the show when Gloria Monty decided that viewers wanted to see strange interloping Italians eating pasta every day. In the past 20 years anything could have changed Bill. Family deaths….brain experiments and altering….cryogenic freezing….bad hair….anything. Or since he was on the show for such a brief time…maybe he always was a psychopath and the nice family man image was his cover. I agree…enough masks and plastic surgery and voice boxes that allow demented Danes to sound like soft spoken Scots…and that allow agitated German/Swiss women to sound like a Brit. The Bill thing is logical in soapland and and it is playing into history. Maybe he is the financier who has also allowed Heather to come and go from nuthouses for all these years. I doubt it was was sexual favours that kept those strapping young guards in line. Heather was a fox back in the day….but now…yeah…sixty and saggin’ does not get them baggin’.

    Shay replied

    @Johnny…LOL! Love that Heather sex slam, even though she is my favorite wandering nutcase, and by the way, just where has she been? As if any asylum walls could contain her!!!! I have been wondering just what part the “BLT Queen” played in the latest Luke saga….on one hand, she obviously had him detained to hide her Carly kidnapping caper, but beyond that, just how much did she know? She was angry that RealLuke had previously spurned her romantic advances, but was it enough to make him suffer such inhumane indignities? One would think with her “free hall pass” she would have been spotted lurking about the Miscavige to see what’s what. I am almost hoping that the switch with “ErsatzLuke” went above and beyond her involvement so that perhaps she will discover the genuine article and help him regain his sense of identity and ultimately, his freedom. Would be kind of cool to see Ms. Webber be a heroine of sorts….for once!!!!! Whatever, we definitely need to have a Heather update soon….she should be back in the mix amongst all the other assorted nuts inhabiting Port Charles these days.

    rebecca1 replied

    Luke is drugged out of his mind and to his knowledge his cousin died…in his arms…so I can understand why that wouldn’t occur to him.

  20. mfarris70 says:

    I still think he’s Bill Eckert but his vendetta against Sonny has yet to be explained. Remember when Fluke was in his office and looked up and said “I’m doing this for you, buddy” or something like that? There’s a personal angle to his revenge scheme. Bill Eckert was at one time in deep with Harlan Barrett in some shady activities and had some knowledge of Barrett Enterprises and he even dated Harlan’s daughter Julia who ran the company. And if Fluke is not Bill, why would someone go through the trouble of becoming Luke and taking his place to pull off this vendetta? Tracy is dumb when it comes to men so a good-looking rich guy could have easily swept her off her feet without assuming Luke’s identity, especially if Tracy thought Luke had abandoned her. The answer is that Fluke already did look like Luke– he’s Bill Eckert.

    I agree because by now if he’s been intimate w/Tracy she would know about a mask, the line, the rubber etc. So the person would have to be cousin Bill or someone w/plastic surgery. I hope we don’t have wait until Geary returns from Summer vacation.

    WAs Gino Solitio ever on the show in real life? I mean is this someone they are making up now, or was he really on at one time.? If so, was he a lecherous person who disliked women and coldblooded murderer? I never saw him. I don’t remember anyone I’ve seen on the show treating women like this. Maybe Anthony, but I don’t remember him interacting much with Luke and even if he came back from the dead, he’d be too old to have this much energy.

    Reply

    Scott (ATWT Fan) replied

    Gino was married to Tracy, and since Tracy used the Soleito money into ELQ, it’d make sense. Plus, when Sonny married Claudia, he did take over their territory. Whether he was seen before or not wouldn’t pertain to them bringing him back into the fold of the series.

    Johnny replied

    Tracy appeared on The City. Gino Soleito was a character on that show. He never appeared on GH. That would be an epic fail.

    Diane, when you say Jacks, do you mean Jerry Jax or Jasper Jax?
    Jason respects women, so it could not possibly be him. He does not hate Sonny nor Luke. Jason is not the right height or body as Luke. Though how they are doing it I don’t know, but fluke seems to have a bigger head and a face than Luke. I’ve felt this the whole time.

    Jason does not respect women. He’s a murderer. Murderers don’t respect people…men or women. The thug has been dead for two years and people are still romanticizing him.

    What I was speaking of is Jason does not go into a room and think “How many of these women can I manhandle or sleep with. He does not touch women without their permission, etc. I don’t romanticize him.

    I had to taped Friday’s show, yes tape as in old fashioned videotape, but the sound didn’t come out, so I had to watch the show with closed caption so I missed the essence of the performance verbally, but just watching facial expression without sound on those scenes I can honestly say Mr. Geary did outstanding work.

    And the closed captioning people identified fake Luke as Fluke as well, which I thought was hilarious.

    Anthony Geary is doing a dual role : it’s so skank, it’s so wretched, it’s so little shop of horrors,

    for all the Luke fans : it’s horrific…

    OUR Luke is boxed straight mind numbing swimming in his own thoughts

    the two times I teared

    1. when FLUKE showed Luke his wedding ring with Tracy

    “she’s a good woman, do not hurt her” thats tears

    2. when he told Luke about Rocco…. you could see in his body… his face… Lulu has HER child. really tearful

    I wasn’t watching GH back when bill was on

    i’m really ENJOYing watching the acting choices of Anthony Geary.

    it’s not must see… for me… but… he’s STEALING the show

    what’s next?

    Bravo to Tony Geary ! What an amazing performance in this dual role. This was definitely an EMMY winning performance. Talk about a rollar coaster of emotions as a viewer feeling sorry for Luke and angry at Fluke. Amazing job!

    Tony wants Luke to die but I see where Laura might waltz in once Fluke is dead, nurse Luke back to health and run off into the sunset. Sorry Tracy.

    Timmm…..As much as AG seems to be against that scenario, I would hope that he would reconsider when the time for Luke’s “swansong” arrives. The fans who have followed his character on this incredible three decades-plus journey deserve a satisfying conclusion, and for it not to end hand-in-hand with Laura is truly unimaginable! Whatever he has with Tracy cannot hold a candle to the magic he made with his “angel.”

    With Fluke leaving town for his honeymoon, does this mean Geary is off the show on one of his long Europe vacations?

    Last year Anthony Geary split up his Summer vacation.He took a few weeks off at the beginning of the Summer but came back for a few weeks.Then he left again until the Fall.So he might do the same thing this year.That way he won’t be off screen the whole Summer.

    My guess is yes. I wonder if Tracy will be spending months with Fluke on the honeymoon. I’m afraid he’d kill her. And surely over that period of time she’d figure it out.

    Maybe Fluke will bring back a fake Tracy when they return from their ‘honeymoon’?

    CF Sanders replied

    A bit disappointed with my girl Tracy. No two people make love or kiss the same way. That and the personality differences weigh heavily against the Fluke! Wake up girl; Ned remain vigilant.

    Fluke revealed he had been a patient in Miscavige for a long period of time all the while plotting his revenge against Sonny and studying Luke’s history, personality and everything and anything necessary to fool all that know him. (Although people are definitely noticing that something is amiss. I ask myself, was this guy committed to Miscavige because he was to serve a sentence as someone criminally insane or was this enemy someone assumed to have been killed by Sonny or Jason but who actually committed himself voluntarily to use the asylum as a refuge, while devising and waiting for the right time to execute a fiendish plan.
    The possible candidates buzzed about I e Bill E, Alcazar, or Jerry Jacks make sense because they all had dealings with Sonny- last seen Jerry Jacks was helped to escape with the help of Julian . I thought about some other evil villains from the past as well such as Grant Putnam (a dastardly dude who was obsessed with Robin and Anna), but he wasn’t in the mob, and was committed to an Asylum by Scorpio before Sonny arrived in Port Charles. Manny Ruiz was head of a crime family (he was obsessed with Sam) and thrown from a roof (supposedly killed) by Jason. Faith Roscoe was a super psychopath who would definitely fit the profile wanting death to Sonny Inc. with no love for Luke either, It would be great if Fluke was really a woman but it wouldn’t fly because even thought body parts can be replicated they could prove to be non-functional in some cases ( re husbandly duties). I do think the initials B.E is a teaser just as A.J. was,, though I don’t count Bill. His m o is different than the pretender. Fluke is a sociopathic, cold-blooded thug of the worst kind ,who wants to push dope , is a sexual predator etc. I don’t remember B.E. being psychotic, nor Jerry Jacks being a dope pusher or pervert. Alcazar and Ruiz would fit that profile better.
    One added note, Tony Geary is giving a stellar performance, that has me so repulsed that I can’t stand watching him but I do. It seems that Geary is wearing some putty- (something that Orson Wells used to do) it looks like him but doesn’t His profile looks different – He made me feel how tortured, trapped , dulled and drugged he’s being kept but thru it all the Spencer spirit with its pure will, strength and mental acuity still prevails. I hope Tony will be recognized for this body of work. It’s been the best acting on the show that I’ve seen in many years.

    Cannot be a women. Fluke slept with Tracy.

    exactly which is why part of what I commented was that even if body parts could be replicated it wouldn’t fly because some of those parts would have to function in order for Fluke to take care of his wife in the sack. ( I said husbandly duties) but it was just a thought since Faith Roscoe would be such a great candidate.

    Timmm replied

    YES! Faith Roscoe would be the ultimate! They have done the latex mask twice so yeah, why not replicate “Moving Parts”. Its a soap!

    They are attempting to bring Jason back to life..
    And never forget.. Helena secretly put a curse on Luke and Laura..
    she blames them for her husband Mikkos’ death..
    ahh that was when the late great Elizabeth Taylor was Helena Cassadine!!

    Anyways!!
    I believe that Fluke is a clone .. -a clone- of Luke

    It would be another far out Cassadine experiment..

    While the “BE” clue may be a red-herring, what about the “DNA” and “kidney” remarks??? This would lead one to believe that this is indeed a blood-relative of the real Luke Spencer….which means it’s either Bill Eckert or there’s another unknown family member with an uncanny resemblance to the original…a long-lost twin or another cousin???? By now, it would seem that a mask-erade is not involved in this duplicitous deed, so either plastic surgery or a real-life double is the key to solving this mystery. I do think the puzzle should be answered sooner rather than later….this whole “Fluke” thing has been dragged out long enough….I hate to think that we have to go through the entire summer without a satisfactory conclusion.

    They’ll probably drag it out and bring back a fake Tracy who will help Fluke take over ELQ…lol

    Quite frankly, jimh, at this point, a faux Tracy could be refreshing! Ms. Quartermaine-Spencer used to be oh-so-fabulous, but over the past few years she’s been gradually reduced to nothing more than a caustic, clueless, perennially pantsuit-clad crone with a punkish hairdo and garish makeup. Simply a comical caricature of her formerly savvy, stylish and sensationally sophisticated self!

    B.E is Barrett Enterprises dont think that has anything to do with who he is.

    I get that, Sherlock (I mean, David….) but Ron loves to taunt his viewers much like Moriarty does the deerstalkered detective, so I would not discount that those initials are intended as a double meaning, whether as a genuine clue or merely a red herring.

    You’re welcome, jimh, and might I add, I derive no pleasure from my description of Tracy……I always enjoyed her tart tongue-lashings, over-the-top eccentricities and even those tawdry ties to one inappropriate man after another, but once AJ reappeared, Ms. Quartermaine turned into such a spiteful, sorry shrew. The amusing aspect of her persona flew out the window and her default setting became mirthful malevolence, no longer light-hearted and laugh-inducing, but just plain mean.

    The man has been fabulous forever…no one realized when this average guy showed up to run a disco that he would define daytime soap opera. During the Gloria Monty days he single handedly saved GH from demise then…and here we are now with this utterly masterpiece of performance on Friday and it has only gone to limits so above. I am so happy for Tony Geary that the material is finally there for his tour de force that all the current GHers can marvel at his work. But trust me way back when this average guy captivated millions…

    I really think it will be Bill Eckert (which will make for a good story, once his history is explained to the newer viewers), but whoever it is, I am ready for this storyline to come to a head. I am a lonnnnng time GH fan, and I am enjoying Anthony Geary’s amazing talent, which is many faceted and shining for sure, but if AG gets the summer off, IMO, I do not want this storyline waiting until the Fall to end.

    As with most storylines, this storyline will be forgotten. We won’t see an end in sight with Tony’s summer vacation. The focus will then be on Sam, Silas, and Nina. Then, we’ll have a quick wrap-up story because everyone would have forgotten what happened anyways. For example, I totally forgot that someone intentionally hit Patrick and Sabrina’s car, causing Sabrina to go into premature labor. We see Patrick and Sabrina all week, then not at all, which led me to not care and forget about that detail of the storyline. This happens a lot. Same with Sam, Silas, Nina. Also, Jordan, Shawn, TJ. Oh, and Lucy, Kevin, and Scott. It’s too bad. There’s just too many recurring characters and newbies.

    I don’t think this storyline will be forgotten because even though Anthony Geary is on Summer vacation for now the story will be moving forward.As for Patrick and Sabrina’s car accident story i think that’ll be picking up steam coming up and maybe connect to other stories on the canvas.

    This post has nothing to do with GH..I just finish watching Friday episode of DOOL, and its about time we give REAL applause all around to Gary Tomlin.

    This man made OLTL watchable and the show won its only Emmy for Outstanding Daytime Drama when he was executive producer…The show should have won the fallowing 2 years, it was THAT good!!

    Last year DOOL, after a long dry spell won Best soap, while Gary was in the writing helm.

    He is legendary and deserve kudos. JUST SAYING!! :-)

    After re-reading some recaps from the 90s, I’m beginning to think that Fluke is Damian Smith, son of Luke’s arch enemy and former mob boss Frank Smith. Damian tried to take control of ELQ, he broke up Bobbie’s marriage to Tony on a bet from Lucy and he hated Ned. Ultimately he was presumed dead in a fire and Laura went on trial for his murder. Don’t forget that whoever Fluke is, he needs to have millions of dollars to make this plan happen.

    Someone correct me if Im wrong, the episode a couple weeks back when Luke and Tracy were eating Breakfast at Kelly’s. Bobbie bumped into them and then Scotty showed up teasing Luke about their stay in the asylum and Scotty showed bobby a pic of Luke in a awig from the asylum. He had blue eyes in the pic. Am I wrong?

    Anyone else notice that?

  49. dmr says:

    After Anna made it a point to refer to Barrett Enterprises as “B.E;” I thought it was definitely Bill Eckert. I don’t remember the Eckerts much. I remember thinking they were very boring and seemed to take over Port Charles in the early 90′s? Let’s just hope it is not another ridiculous mask. I’m over this storyline, Fluke is way too creepy. I was sickened by the way that he was hitting on Olivia. It’s just gross. I’d much prefer Luke to be comical with Scott and Tracy.

  50. Carole says:

    Bill Eckhart is to obvious, but I never thought of Trevor Lansing. I’m going back even further, because Fluke mentioned Luke’s jazz club. I’m thinking it’s either Frank Smith, Damian or Victor Jerome. Victor was a pig!

    Reply

    andrew hass replied

    I don’t think it’s Victor Jerome because he would be in his 70s or 80s now.Whoever it is said he has been planning this for years.So it has to be someone who has had a vendetta against Sonny for a long time.Plus it might be someone Luke knows too from his past.So it could be Damian Smith because he hated both Luke and Sonny.So in a way he gets revenge on both of them.

    Reply

    DonnyGH replied

    But, was Damian ever such a creepy rapist? I’m leaning towards Anthony Zacchara. He also had a connection to Tracy. I creepy connection to Tracy. And he HATES Sonny! And he HATES Luke!

    andrew hass replied

    I did consider Anthony for a second but he wanted Tracy.Whoever is pretending to be Luke doesn’t want Tracy and is just using her.So i would understand Anthony pretending to be Luke if it meant he could have Tracy but that’s not the case.Plus the impostor has said he’s been planning this for years and has been watching Luke.Whoever it is i think knows Sonny,Luke and maybe even Ric because he framed him.So it might be someone all 3 knows.So if that’s the case i’m leaning towards it been Trevor Lansing or Lorenzo Alcazar.

  51. Timmm says:

    I hope RC doesnt disappoint the viewers for sticking with this Fluke guy. If its a latex mask, you have to ask, who the hell despised Sonny so much AND Luke? It couldnt be a Cassadine or Faison. Maybe it is a Smith. My guess is Jerry Jax. He hates that Luke and Tracy got one over on him. I dont know why he would hate Sonny other than going after him for Jax?

    Hmmmm… I was getting tired of this storyline UNTIL Fluke taunted Luke. Now, I’m curious as hell. I want to find out sooner than later, though. I’ve heard conspiracy theories from Bill Eckertt to Anthony Zacchara. Bill wasn’t as lecherous as Fluke, when I think about it. So, this is someone who hates Sonny AND enjoys usurping Luke and causing him pain. AND he’s a big ol’ creepy dirtbag. It could be a mask. I’m feeling like Bill Eckertt would be too obvious at this point. Barrett Enterprises is too clear. I’m leaning towards Anthony Z.
