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.

Please refer to our June 26th, 2014 article, Tony Geary Talks Fluke and Personal Health for the full story.

Nathan and Dante Team Up to Uncover Levi’s Lies! Watch the Clip!

Maxie just cannot see through Levi’s deceit. Dunkleman is a snake and everyone knows he is up to no good… except for Maxie. Maxie is being manipulated by his schemes and we have yet to find out his real purpose in Port Charles. Spoilers have indicated that Levi is in town for far more than a relationship with Maxie. Maxie is just a pawn in his little game to bring him closer to someone or something in Port Charles.

Mac strongly dislikes him and he has tried to talk some sense into Maxie but she is too blinded. By what you ask? Yeah, we aren’t sure because it definitely isn’t his charm or wit. Lulu is skeptical of him as well. Nathan down right hates Levi, and not only because Nathan is falling for Maxie, but because he truly believes that Dunkleman is up to no good. Levi and his underhanded scheming need to take a one way trip right out of town. Levi getting deported would have been a great relief to Mac and Nathan. However, we all know that Nathan wasn’t the one who called immigration on Levi. Just as Levi disguised his voice to call the court house and tattle on Nathan for lying to the judge, he disguised his voice and called immigration on himself! Levi wants Nathan out of the picture and there’s no better way to do it than to make him look bad in front of Maxie. Levi is about to give Maxie the sob story of his life. In recent previews, it shows Levi telling Maxie that if he gets deported back to Australia, he will go to prison. This will then lead to Maxie and Levi planning to get married in order to keep him in the country.

Nathan wants to put a stop to Levi before he is able to hurt Maxie. He turns to Dante for help. Dante is the only other person who knows that Levi is in the US illegally. Nathan has confided in Dante about Maxie and Levi before. Now the two cops are teaming up to fit all the pieced togethr and prove that Levi is up to no good. They are on a mission to prove that Levi set Nathan up and called immigration on himself.

A New Lucky Spencer Could Be on His Way to PC

Lucky Spencer is the son of legendary lovers Lucas Lorenzo (Luke) Spencer (Tony Geary) and the beautiful Laura Spencer (Genie Francis). He is the half brother of Prince Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher) and the ex-husband of the lovely Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst), among many other connections in Port Charles.

Lucky left Port Charles after being betrayed and hurt by the love of his life, Elizabeth and his own brother, Nikolas. Liz and Nik were best friends for many years. In more recent years, after being on and off again with Liz’s great love Lucky, and Nikolas losing his true love and Liz’s best friend Emily, Nik and Liz grew to be more than friends. There relationship became romantic and was a steamy love affair. Lucky’s heart belonged to Elizabeth at the time and Liz was torn between the two brothers. When Lucky found out that he had been betrayed by the two people he cared for most, he ultimately ended up leaving town.

Since actor and portrayer of Lucky Spencer, Jonathan Jackson is now on ABC’s hit series, Nashville, it doesn’t look like we will be seeing him reprise his role as Lucky any time soon.

There have been recent rumors circulating regarding Lucky returning to GH and who will be playing him. It seems like General Hospital has been getting a few stars from NBC’s The Young and the Restless, such as Michelle Stafford (Nina Clay) and possibly Billy Miller who has been reported to play the new Jason Morgan this August. The most current news regarding a new Lucky is that Y&R star Michael Muhney will be cast to play General Hospital’s Lucky Spencer. Recently, he and actor Rick Hearts (Ric Lansing) have been quite friendly with their twitter exchanges. There is a possibility that the two have gotten to know one another taping on the set of GH. With Michael Muhney’s recent departure from Y&R, it is likely that this rumor will come true in the near future.

General Hospital Blog will keep fans posted on any concrete news from executives that confirm this casting rumor. In the mean time, hang tight and keep watching GH!

The PCPD Has the Wrong Man… Free Carlos!

As usual, the cops and detectives over at the PCPD have arrested and jailed the wrong man. Carlos is strongly connected to the Jerome crime family members Ava and Julian. He took orders from Julian and his job was to act out on those orders. Somewhere along the way Ava got her grips on Carlos and he and Ava went behind Julian’s back. Ava had convinced Carlos to try and take care of AJ Quartermaine. Once night at the Quartermaine mansion, Carlos arrived in a mask and attempted to take AJ out. The attempt failed when Luke and Tracy walked in and interrupted the operation and put some attack moves on the intruder. Carlos fled the scene and AJ was left alive.

AJ was now still alive and Ava was very angry. AJ was about to tell Sonny that Ava killed Connie so she needed him dead. You now what they say, if you want something done right you better do it yourself! And that’s exactly what Ava was about to do. In a plot to end AJ, AJ and Ava were together at Julian’s apartment. Sonny strolled in and saw the two and immediately thought Ava was the damsel in distress. He got so angry with AJ about Connie, just as AJ was about to tell him Ava was the one who killed her, Sonny shot him!

To hide her involvement in AJ’s (and Connie’s) murder, Ava blackmailed Carlos into taking the wrap. Ava threatened Sabrina and her baby’s life if Carlos didn’t tell Anna that he was the one who killed AJ.

Now that it is know by a few Port Charles residents that Sonny is the actual killer, when will Carlos go free? Carly, Franco, and Sonny have all heard the recording on AJ’s phone of Sonny shooting AJ Ava’s involvement in it all. Once that recording gets out (and we know it will), will it be all over for Sonny? Can what happen to Carlos be rectified?

Jeffrey Vincent Parise (Carlos Rivera) is due to start filing episodes of GH late this Summer. Carlos is expected to arrive on screen in PC early September.

Does Nina Have a Conscience?

As Nina sits at Rafe’s bedside, she thanks him for being able to keep her secret. With the death of she and Silas’ nephew Rafe, the truth about what Nina is up to will die with him. Since Rafe saw Nina able to walk, and overheard her telling Rosalie she wants to take down Silas and Sam, Nina’s optimal situation would be if Rafe died. After she tells a brain dead Rafe that she will give him a big funeral with all the trimmings, he suddenly grabs her hands and opens his eyes. Friday afternoon fans were ecstatic at the fact that Rafe may actually live. Not only is Rafe a great character, Jimmy Deshler a fantastic young actor, but the story line would be that much sweeter. That would have been an unexpected twist if Rafe were to stick it to Nina and actually live. However, the closer and closer it gets to the follow up episode, it looks as though Nina’s mind was just playing tricks on her. In a headline from ABC’s General Hospital itself, it says, “Nina’s conscience gets to her. Will she come clean with Silas.” That seems to be an indication right there that Rafe isn’t really awake, but the idea of what happened to him is haunting Nina. The next question is, will Nina come clean and tell Silas about her involvement in all of this? My guess is no way. She may have a split second of a guilty conscience for what she has done, but it will doubtfully be enough for her to come forward. She plans on destroying Silas in any way she can and up next she will make her move to break up Silas and Sam.

Oh how we wish Rafe was actually awake. To be sure, don’t forget to watch GH today at 2PM Eastern! Share this post if you wish Rafe to live!

Will Patrick Fall for Sam and Still Keep the Secret About Jason?

Sam and Patrick have been friends for a long time. They have been there for each other through the hard times. Patrick was the one who operated on Jason when his life was hanging in the balance. He saved Jason for Sam and only Sam. At that time, Patrick blamed Jason for the death of Robin, as she was trying to come up with a cure for Jason in the lab when it blew up. Dr. Drake was hesitant to perform surgery on Jason to due the nature of his career. He felt that Jason’s life wasn’t worth saving until Sam stepped in and pleaded with him to save Jason so she wouldn’t be left without a husband.

Sam was there for Patrick when he needed a shoulder to lean on when he was trying to let go of Robin in order to move on with Sabrina. Patrick gave Sam advice when she was unsure about her relationship with Silas. Sam also was in Patrick’s corner when Robin decided to leave him and Emma shortly after finally being reunited with her family. Unknowingly to Sam, Robin is away trying to save Jason’s life and Patrick is keeping the secret from Sam.

Patrick has recently suffered the tragedy of losing his son in a car accident. His good friend and P.I. Sam, has been helping him through it all emotional as well as aiding in the investigation to find out who caused their car to run off the road. Through this journey together, Patrick and Sam have grown much closer. They found out that the car that ran Patrick and Sabrina off the road belonged to Silas, and the one driving the night of the accident was Rafe. Rafe is Silas’ nephew and Sam’s foster son. Sam is even standing by Patrick after the operation on Rafe took a turn for the worse which left her foster son brain dead.

As Sam and Patrick grow closer, they may even fall in love. However, Patrick is keeping a very large secret from Sam. Will Patrick’s guilt keep him from taking a step towards a romantic relationship with Sam? Or will Patrick fall in love with her just as Jason is due to return to Port Charles?

If Sam and Patrick begin a romantic relationship, when it comes out that Patrick has known this whole time that Jason could possibly be brought back to her, it is hard to believe that Sam would ever forgive him. Perhaps Patrick should come clean before they get involved romantically.

Teresa Castillo Tweets About Her Return to General Hospital

Teresa Castillo’s character Sabrina Santiago has had a lot of ups and downs in her seemingly short time living in Port Charles. She moved to Port Charles to begin her career in nursing as a way to follow in her Mother’s footsteps. Sabrina’s mother was also a nurse. She passed away some time ago and now that Sabrina is grown she wanted to become a nurse and take care of others just as her mother did.

Shortly after arriving in Port Charles and landing a job at GH, she set her sights on Dr. Patrick Drake. Not knowing he was the husband of the (then) late Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake, she fell deeper and deeper for Patrick as time went on. She soon found out who he actually was, but she was battling with Dr. Britt Westbourne for his affections. Soon after Sabrina won her man, Robin turned up alive and made her debut at what was suppsoed to be Sabrina and Patrick’s wedding. After Patrick ultimately chose his wife Robin over Sabrina, Sabrina learned she was pregnant with Patrick’s baby. Robin left town at the request of Victor Cassadine in an atempt to being he rbest frined Jason Morgan back to life. Jason, along with a couple Cassadines, has been cryogenically frozen and only the skills of Dr. Robin Scorpio have the chance of bringing them back. Meanwhile, back in PC, Patrick, Sabrina, and Emma were involved in a serious car accident. The accident cause Sabrina to go into preterm labor. Shortly after she delivered baby Gabriel, he passed away. Patrick and Sabrina lost their child.

This all led up to the departure of Teresa Castillo’s character. Sabrina left Port Charles with her cousin Juan Santiago (Michael Saucedo) and went back to Puerto Rico to be with the rest of her family. The actress has been on maternity leave and is due to return to the set of General Hospital in just a few short weeks. She will begin taping scenes in about two weeks. Castillo sent out a tweet last week with her announcement of returning.

When Sabrina comes back to Port Charles after grieving for her boy in Puerto Rico, she will be facing a hard truth. Patrick and Sam are debating on whether or not it would help or hurt Sabrina, knowing who caused the accident and the events that unfolded before and after. Will learning that Rafe caused the accident give Sabrina closure? Knowing Patrick was the one to operate on Rafe and the outcome that resulted may have an effect on how Sabrina heals from the situation. Let us know what you think. Should Patrick tell Sabrina everything that has happened while she was away?

Who Called Immigration on Dunkleman?

It would be Mac and Nathan’s wildest dream for the Department of Immigration to come knocking on Levi Dunkleman’s (Zachary Garred) door to whisk him away to a land far, far away. Levi Dunkleman is from Australia and came to Port Charles with Maxie after they met on her personal eat, pray, love retreat. After losing custody of her baby girl, Georgie, Maxie felt she needed time to heal. It’s clear to those around her that Levi found Maxie at a vulnerable state and is manipulating and taking advantage of her. She defends him to Mac, Nathan, Lulu and anyone else that is trying to get her to see the light.

Levi is in the US on an expired Visa and he, Maxie, Nathan, and since Nathan told Dante, the four of them are the only ones who know this information. So who called immigration and is Dunkleman really getting deported? It doesn’t seem like Nathan because he told Maxie he would keep their secret, and we all know how he feels about Maxie.  It technically could have been Dante, since Nathan disclosed the situation to him at the PCPD, but it’s doubtful. It has been rumored that Levi called immigration on himself in order for Maxie to blame Nathan. Upcoming spoilers reveal that there is strong evidence against Nathan regarding Levi’s visa.  It’s obvious that Levi is trying to drive a wedge between Maxie and Nathan and what a better way to do it other than making Maxie think Nathan went against his word? Perhaps this will persuade Maxie into marrying Levi in order to keep him in the country.

Do you think Maxie will go through with marrying Levi in order to keep him in the US?

 

Rafe is Awake! What’s Next?

Cliffhanger Friday is an understatement when describing the shockingly dramatic ending of today’s episode of General Hospital. Rafe is supposed to be brain dead. Beating hurt, functioning organs, but a blood vessel burst while being operate on by Dr. Patrick Drake and everyone is now morning the loss of Rafe. Silas, his uncle is taking it extremely hard. Kiki, Rafe’s cousin, is saddened that she didn’t get to know him better, and Sam, his foster Mother is a heavy heart. Nina is Rafe’s aunt, has her own agenda. Nina is manipulating Silas once again. She is playing into his emotions, acting as a support system for what has happened to their nephew. She is throwing Sam under the bus any chance she can get to make her look bad. Nina is convincing Silas that Sam would rather support Patrick.

Talking to Rafe at his bedside, Nina thanks him for dying. She thanks him for not being able to tell Silas all the underhanded and awful things she is doing to get revenge on Silas and the other people who she feels wronged her in her life. “What’s bad for you is good for me. Rafe you’re helping me, you’re helping me drive a wedge between Silas and his trailer trash girlfriend.” As she was freakishly touching Rafe’s hand, he suddenly grabbed hers and opened his eyes!

Is Rafe really alive or is Nina seeing things? If Rafe is alive would Nina actually finish him off? Silas made it a point to tell Nina that Rafe’s condition is nothing like hers. That his nephew for all intents and purposes is dead and he will never wake up. Also, what about Alice? Perhaps all the hype about Alice getting Rafe’s heart was all to mislead fans into thinking Rafe is going to die just to shock us in today’s episode. If that’s the case, then goal accomplished! If you’re thinking Rafe woke up as a vampire, you’re not alone. Fans have been half halfheartedly been suggesting that Rafe will follow in the Port Charles footsteps and possibly become immortal like his father Stephen Clay.

If you hope Rafe is alive and Alice receives a heart from another donor, let us know by commenting and sharing this post!
