There are many rumors circulating in regard to the true identity of the man impersonating Lucas Lorenzo Spencer, better known as the legendary Luke Spencer. The most popular guess or suggestion among fans is the character Bill Eckert. Bill Eckert was Luke’s cousin, therefore they have an uncanny resemblance to one another. This would make a lot of sense since he already shares Luke’s physical attributes.
There is supporting evidence that may help prove this theory to be correct. Back when Bill was in Port Charles he was part of the Cartel with Brenda Barrett’s Father Harlan Barrett. Since the bank roll connection lead to Barrett Enterprises, this could be yet another connection to it all.
In Friday’s episode of General Hospital Fluke spoke directly into the camera while answering Luke’s question of who he is. He responded to Luke by saying, “I have your face.” Could that be an inclination of his true identity? Since Luke’s cousin Bill Eckert literally has his face, is that what the fans were supposed to catch on to?
On Monday, when Bobbie was arguing with Julian, telling him to stay away from Lucas, Julian said something to Bobbie that got fans thinking. Bobbie told Julian he is too dangerous and to stay away from Lucas. She blamed him for Lucas being shot. At that point, Julian stated that he is his Father and that Lucas is in more danger from HER family now. Since Bill Eckert is Luke’s cousin, he is part of Bobbie’s family.
Other evidence supporting this fan theory is an interview from 1993. In an interview with Pure Soap, Tony Geary discusses his disappointment in the story line involving Bill Eckert and the death of the character. Since Tony Geary wasn’t too find of the character dying, perhaps this is GH’s way to bring Bill Eckert back for a while in hopes to redeem the memory of him.
