On Wednesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, it might have been better named “Harrowing Hospital”!
There were plenty of gut-wrenching moments starting with the fact that poor “Jake” (Billy Miller), who has given Dr. Drake (Jason Thompson) the go-ahead to perform brain surgery on him, and remove the chip that is allowing Helena (Constance Towers) to control him, recalled he is actually Jason Morgan!
But the revelation occurred at the most inopportune time …just as “Jake” was counting backwards from ten, as the anesthesia took effect that would knock him out in order for Dr. Drake to operate.
As “Jake” countdowns, he has flashes of chats with Helena and different moments with her. One in particular, where she tells him who he is triggers a major moment for “Jake”. But, no one can hear the patient on the operating table, as he is now set to undergo the brain surgery! Will Patrick figure out that indeed this is Jason’s brain he is operating on?
Meanwhile, in heartbreaking scenes performed beautifully by Jackie Zeman (Bobbie) and Tony Geary (Luke), Bobbie visits Luke in his jail cell, and let’s him have an earful of how disgusted she is with her brother … the man that she grew up with and saved her from the horrors of their childhood on Elm Street. She really lays into her brother when she reveals how truly dismayed she is that he tried to have her son Lucas (Ryan Carnes) killed a year ago. Luke pipes up that he would have finished the job had Julian (William deVry) not shown up!
However, when Bobbie was overwrought with emotion and pain, and talked about their relationship growing up and more, viewers started to see the real Luke personality everyone is accustomed to seeing re-emerge! Yup, it looks like Luke is suffering from a form of DID (Dissociative Identify Disorder).
Add all of that to the equation, and a conversation Helena had with Lulu (Emme Rylan), Tracy (Jane Elliot) and Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) and it would seem all roads clearly point to Luke having two personalities, although there are still many gaps in this story to be filled to make it all come together. Finally, as “Jake” is going to be operated on, Nikolas learns that the ring in the box that Helena presented to him holds the key to just who her “Solider Boy” is … Jason!
Watch the clip where Luke talk to his other personality after the jump! Then weigh-in: Were you upset to see “Jake” remembering he was Jason before being knocked out for brain surgery? Were you happy or upset to learn that the Luke/Fluke story could be a harrowing story of DID, and that something terrible happened to Luke as a child? What do you think Nikolas will do with the information that Jason is “Jake”? Share your thoughts below!
