28 September 30th, 2013 GENERAL HOSPITAL: Luke He Comes Face To Face With Helena … Or So He Thinks!

Courtesy/ABC

On last Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary) was not doing very well.  In fact, he is dying and is desperately looking for a cure that only Jerry Jacks supposedly has!   Luke now is on the very creepy Cassadine Island, looking for Mr. Jacks.  And once knocking out one of the guards  to  gain access to the maximum security area, Luke thinks he sees the footsteps of someone coming towards him.  And he’s right, well sort of.

In a shocker for fans.  in walks Luke’s mortal enemy Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers).   While at first viewers may have thought that Helena somehow survived her “final” fate, and is indeed alive, in turned out that Luke was just having his most frightening hallucination of them all!  Next, the vision of  Helena tells Luke to join her in the grave and promises to end his suffering.  The scene was very in line with all Luke and Helena scenes, even with the now staple creepy kiss between the two! Helena kissed Luke, but it’s still very dark and twisted and delicious at the same time.   At the end of the scene, Luke refuses to go with her, while Helena promises he’ll see her again, because he is going to die.

Now on today’s new episode, fans are awaiting to see who else walked in that could be on Cassadine Island that Luke saw, but the audience didn’t!  Tony Geary is once again showing his acting chops, and we can’t help but wonder, could some of these upcoming scenes actually be strong material for him for next year’s Emmy race?  We shall see, because anything he does pretty much can turn into gold!   And, how great though was it to see Constance Towers back!

So we ask, what did you think about seeing Constance Towers and Anthony Geary again in scenes?  Are you glad that as of now Helena is still really dead?  Or, were you hoping that she was alive?    Comment below!

    Im glad she is finally dead she gives me the creeps. On the other hand in the world of soap opera any character can come back to life.

    Oh yes, jimh!!!! The magnificent, malevolent and mirthful (grand)mutta was in the triumphant thick of things today, and it was diabolically delightful!!!! Definitely worth the wait, although I have so missed her pernicious presence…it’s been torture waiting for the obtrusive Obrecht’s return! Being on the lam must have agreed with the shadylady scientist because she looked so youthful and rejuvenated….she had a real glow about her! (Perhaps she should bottle her anti-aging remedy?….Would sure beat that cheesy CoeCoeCosmetics/ spa stuff that loquacious Lucy is always hawking!) You could tell how much Dr. O. was relishing her new role with baby “Cesar” (Loved her priceless reaction to the name, “Ben…”) as she pronounced each malicious morsel of malcontentment to her daughter! (Delivered with great aplomb by the ALWAYS awesome Kathleen Gati!) It really was glorious viewing!!!! As for the “Heidi Klum” remark…Such fun!!!! Whatever transpires down the road with this superb storyline, “Cartini” had better create a way for our beloved vituperative villainess to retain a place in the GH hemisphere….she is simply inspired….and indispensable!!!!!! Long live Liesl O.!!!!!

    If they are going to ‘redeem’ Franco with a brain tumor, they could do the same with Dr.O…would like Dr.O to hold a belated baby shower for Britt and the baby and invite Patrick, Robin, Maxi, Spin, Sapbrina, Anna, Duke, Felix, Brad, Lulu, and Dante…that would be an interesting party…just joking…lol

    I kind of appreciate when characters die, they stay dead. I am not one for repeated resurrections. That said, I am not opposed to ghostly returns… and this Spencer-Cassadine connection was ghostly, ghastly, and creepy fun indeed!!!

    I hope Ben isnt Dante and Lulus…that would give them a happy ending and story conclusion…the baby should be Dante and Britts…this could give Britt more story and complicate Dante and Lulus lives for years…also possible choice…Patrick and Britts…this could cause problems in the Drakes marriage, and give kim m.reason to sometimes leave the show to direct or whatever…other parents for Ben are Nik and Britt or even Patrick and Sabrina(that would upset some viewers…lol) or Patrick and Robins…also i want Britt to be Annas daughter…Dr.O carried her but Britts really Annas and heres the shocker…Faison is the father!!!

    After witnessing “ShrewLu’s” absolutely bratty and possessive behavior with “Baby Connie,” (HATE the name….) I truly hope that she ends up with neither child. Her snotty behavior has become really predictable, and nothing about it is remotely entertaining. Even Dante has finally snapped out of his clueless, “proud papa” mode after today’s revelation, so hopefully we will be seeing the successful conclusion of this great parental charade very soon. As for “Ben” (Who will here to for be known as “Cesar” since he is now in the protective custody of his grandmutter…LOL) I still look for there to be some big twist to his true paternity….it would be far too cliche’ and convenient for the Falconeris to have a legal claim to Britt’s offspring.

    There has to be a twist…Little Ben/Ceaser cant be Dante and Lulus…too predictable and boring…id even settle for the child being Dr.Os and Faisons…possible…Britt carried her own brutter!!!

    Shay replied

    “Brutter.” LOL….Would love to see “Cesar” have some Cassadine blood….that could serve to create a deeper bond between Nik and Britt!!! Other than that, I can’t imagine what could be more shocking. I don’t think Jerry Jacks could be the father with his current illness, and from what I read, he’s furious with Dr. O. for bringing the baby to the island in upcoming episodes, so that idea seems like a long shot. As far out as this storyline has become, I don’t believe that the love-crazed “Mutta” would have had her daughter carry her own father’s child…that is probably even toooo sick for her! (At least I hope so…there will be no redeeming our mutually favorite fraulein for future frolics if such is the case!!!!)

    Shay replied

    P.S. The only way I possibly could imagine Jerry as Britt’s “baby daddy” would be if he thought he needed some kind of transplant to save him….but that doesn’t sound to be the case given Robin’s “wonder drug!” Also, he maybe could have accomplished the same goal with the help of Jax or even Josslyn, so I cannot see the value of this idea. That being said, whatever Mr. Jacks has utilized up until now has worked like a charm…dude looked to be in rude health!!! On the other hand….there’s Luke appearing like death warmed over….

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    LOL…i was kinda joking about Britt carrying her own brutter…but it sure would be contriversal and disgusting…can imagined what other peoples comments would be if that happened…like the Cassidine connection…maybe Britt did carry a Cassidine baby that her mutter had an affair with a long time ago…interesting!

    if memory serves me, the Spencer clan left Helena’s body in the cold room around the area where they found Lulu. Since they didn’t do a DNA test on the body, nor did they destroy it, I figured she was alive, somewhere. :-)

    I’m so over Luke. Think it was about the 250th time he did his annual faking-a-German-professor accent storyline that threw me off the Luke fan bandwagon.

    Not me. I am still a fan of Luke!

    I am VERY much over the cartoonish pointless Helena character…but I would love to know Constance Towers’ anti-aging secret! The woman is well into her 80′s and she looks awesome! She barely looks older than when she was on Capitol 30 years ago!

    She is 80! Maybe it is time for Tony Geary to retire just silly plots every time he goes to Amsterdam it has put Jane Elliott/Tracy in limbo for years just retire.

    Ya I can get behind that. Luke without Laura makes NO sense. This attempt to make Tracy into his soulmate is wrong and weird. I never loved Luke more than during the claire Labine years which ny apparently hated. Seeing a 65 year old man still playing action hero with the Cassadines is ridiculous.! He should be settled and happy with Laura by now. The mistake all these soaps have made (My name is Erica Kane) is writing 50 something characters as if they were still 20. Let them grow up!

    Patrick replied

    here, here….

    he’s good publicity for the show… and emmy nominations galore.

    BUT.

    I have to so agree… it leaves THE wonderful Tracy… too much in limbo….

    damn you… GH… OK i curse you…. LOL

    watching Tracy with Joe, Scully jr.. was deelish (delicious) and rabid… for Tracy to score

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Tracy needs someone new…who is also into Monica…give these gems their own storyline!!!

    SUSAN M. replied

    I think Anthony Geary is a very good actor . And don’t think he should retire. He has quite a bit of emmy awards .. For his good acting ability. I like him and I want him to stay on GH !

    Great to have Luke back on GH—anything’s better than the Kiki-Franco show.

    If I recall Stavros stashed Helena away and put her on ice…just as she saved his life. I don’t think she’s really dead!

    Lulu was in such rage about finding out the truth about the baby. I thought she was going to bust a blood vessel. I felt sorry for Maxi.
