On Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers witnessed the final scenes between long-time nemesis’ Luke Spencer and Helena Cassadine. And as we previously reviewed and reported on the episode, it was quite a memorable swan song between long time scene partners Tony Geary and Constance Towers.
After the episode aired, GH script writer Scott Sickles took to his facebook page and related his thoughts on penning the final scenes between these iconic soap adversaries, and getting the opportunity in the last few years to script the scenes for the character of Helena, Luke and to work in collaboration with the General Hospital writing team.
Sickles shared: “On July 9, 2015, GH aired the final scenes I ever personally scripted between Luke Spencer and his lifelong arch-nemesis Helena Cassadine. Writing Helena has been one of my greatest joys over the past few years. I have no idea if she’ll ever be back (or do I? Because if I did, well… there’s no way I would tell you… We’re in the home stretch with Tony Geary and it’s been an honor and a pleasure. This is a highlight for me.”
Scott went on to say to the many fans that commented on his post: “Credit where it’s due: it was truly a collaborative effort. Most of the magic came from Ron Carlivati, Anna Theresa Cascio, and Elizabeth Korte. I’m just glad I got to add some touches. Those scenes were a team effort.”
So GH fans, do you think if this was the last time we will see Helena Cassadine? Do you think she will return sooner than later? What did you think of the scenes between Constance Towers and Tony Geary that ultimately led to the reveal of little Jake Spencer (James Nigbor) being alive, and Sickles touching post on the creation of them?
