On Tuesday’s General Hospital, Laura Spencer (Genie Francis) and Holly Sutton (Emma Samms) finally had a moment where the two women who gave birth to Luke’s children, hashed out what happened in the past, when Holly had sex with Luke and became pregnant with Ethan (Nathan Parsons), while Luke was married to Laura as related on yesterday’s episode.
Later, the kidnapper reveals he has a photo of a duct taped and held hostage Ethan and Lucky (Jonathan Jackson), which the women see first and then share with Luke. (Anthony Geary)
Genie Francis and Emma Samms throughout their entire General Hospital history never had a moment where the two discussed Holly becoming pregnant with Luke’s child. And the two actresses were happy to have this scene together.
There was also a line in the script about Holly’s relationship to Luke’s cousin Bill Eckert, and a small Twitter controversy erupted because of it. Then, head writer Ron Carlivati made clear to fans that in the script it had been written that Holly did know Bill Eckert, but when the episode aired, the line in the script had been changed, and he did not why.
Later, in an effort to clear the air Emma Samms tweeted that it had nothing to do with the head writer and his team re-writing history, but that she and Tony Geary changed the line. Samms tweeted: “Big confession re GH. Tony & I couldn’t remember the Bill/Holly thing so changed line. NOT fault of
@carlivatiron or @valentinifrank”
All in all it was great to see Genie Francis and Emma Samms share a heart-to-heart moment about loving Luke Spencer and the pain, yet love, they have experienced from their relationships with this complicated man.
