General Hospital Spoilers: GH Has Big Plans for the Month of May

Executive Producer Frank Valentini has some exciting news for GH fans…

General Hospital has just celebrated it’s 52nd Anniversary, being the longest running Daytime Drama on air today. The anniversary episode went out with a bang, revealing a HUGE secret the Spencer family has been holing back all these years.

Fan’s emotions we all over the map as they watched a young Luke Spencer, played by the extremely talented Joey Luthman, a feisty teen Patricia Spencer played by the lovely Chloe Lanier, along with Laura Wright who played Luke’s mother, a young Bobbie Spencer, and Tony Geary who played Luke’s alcoholic, abusive father.

As the story unfolded, fans, along with the Spencer clan, learned that Luke Spencer accidentally killed his own mother ironically, as he was trying to protect her from his father. Ultimately, Luke’s anger toward his abusive father lead him to kill him as well. Luke has been burying this night away in his memory bank, suppressing the traumatic events. Thus resulting in the current story line where Luke has been acting evil, with an alter ego, and having DID.

People Magazine reports that General Hospital has a big event planned for the month of May. On May 15th and 18th, the cast and crew of General Hospital will air LIVE from Los Angeles as a continuation of the 52nd  anniversary, celebratory episode.

Executive Producer, Frank Valentini reports, “Taking such an iconic show such as General Hospital live for two days is both exhilarating and risky.” He continues on saying, “I am enormously proud of our cast, crew, and staff for all their tireless dedication and hard work that will be leading up to this daytime television event. It’s live television and absolutely anything can happen, but that is what’s fun about this and we’re absolutely up to the challenge.”

During the episodes, fans will be able to engage with the actors in a live conversation via Twitter with hashtag #GHLive.

Tony Geary Interview: Luke Story Comes Full Circle

In the most recent issue of Soaps in Depth Magazine, legendary General Hospital icon, Anthony Geary, talks to sources about his career at General Hospital, Head Writer Ron Carlivati, Executive Producer Frank Valentini, and the Fluke Story coming full circle.

There are huge General Hospital rumors circulating in regard to Tony Geary’s status with GH, Luke Spencer’s family secret, and just exactly how the Fluke story will come to a close. Fans have been speculating that at this time, as we creep up to GH’s 52nd anniversary, is when the Spencer family secret will be revealed, and Geary will end his 37 year role on ABC’s General Hospital.

Tony Geary tells SID that Carlivati leaves nothing unanswered when it comes to this whole Fluke story, the DID will tie into the beginning of Luke Spencer, including the rape of Laura, and will even explain why Luke disappears unannounced, leaving his family and loved ones behind. This story will ultimately come full circle. Geary is extremely pleased with the direction Ron Carlivati is taking this character. He tells sources at SID, “I am so thrilled. I feel like they’ve done an amazing job into pulling this character into an understandable, motivated ball after thirty seven years.”

Geary tells Soaps in Depth that he gives credit to Executive Producer Frank Valentini as well for giving him the opportunity to place this dark side of Luke. “I was getting weary, and thinking it was time to go,” he revealed, ‘Frank said, ‘What haven’t you done on the show?’ I said that I wanted to explore the dark side of Luke.” It looks as though Valentini did just that, he listened to Geary’s request and made it happen.

The Latest on Tony Geary as Luke Spencer and Fluke

General Hospital fans have been quite concerned with the status of legendary actor Tony Geary. Lately there has been news surrounding the personal health of Geary and what that means for his role as the iconic Luke Spencer on ABC’s General Hospital.

As General Hospital Blog has previously reported, Tony Geary underwent two back surgeries during his time off from General Hospital. Due to a long recovery time, and more extensive operation that initially expected, the last report noted that Luke/Fluke would be away from the canvas for the remainder of the Summer.

Fans are still wondering when we will all find out who Fluke really is, and with Geary being away from work, it has been confirmed that Tony Geary will not be reprising his role as Luke Spencer and/or Fluke until this coming October.

As far as any further news related to the return of Tony Geary to General Hospital and his characters Luke and Fluke back to Port Charles, nothing has been confirmed that would lead us to believe that Geary won’t be returning despite recent rumors. We will do our best to keep you informed on this news as we all hope and pray that Geary makes a speedy recovery and will be lighting up our screen very soon.

Revealing Fake Luke

Fans are anxious to find out who in fact is Julian’s real mob boss but this story has taken the long road. They want to know who has Luke Spencer’s face. It looks like fans won’t catch a break any time soon, so don’t hold your breath because it is going to be quite a while before General Hospital reveals the true identity of Fluke.

According to Soap Opera Digest, Rick Hearst (Ric Lansing) is not taping any scenes for GH at this time. According to the article, Ric Lansing won’t be seen in Port Charles for a long time while. “With Ric in the Witness Protection program, a GH rep confirms that the character will be off the canvas for the foreseeable future.” 

Soap Opera Digest also reminds fans that Tony Geary (Luke Spencer) is on hiatus for the majority of the Summer and is also not taping any scenes at this time.

With Hearst and Geary off the canvas for the next few months, it isn’t likely that Julian’s boss will come to light and be taken down without their presence. It looks as though GH won’t make this revelation until at least the Fall.
