Will Luke Save His Daughter Lulu Before Stavros Has His Way?

The Spencer/Cassadine war has been ongoing for decades. The Cassadines have a sick obsession with Luke Spencer (Tony Geary) and his family and just won’t leave them alone. No matter how many times Luke is victorious in bring down a member of the Cassadine Clan, they always seem to resurface.

Last year, when Stavros kidnapped Lulu (Emme Rylan), he had plans for the two to be married and start a family. Well all his plans were foiled when Lulu was rescued by her family. Nothing would stop Luke, Laura (Genie Francis), and Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) from coming to her aid and saving her from the crazed Cassadine. The battle wasn’t easy, and nothing is ever final when it comes to the Cassadines, especially Helena (Constance Towers) and Stavros (Robert Kelker-Kelly). Although they were “killed” a Cassadine never really dies. Stavros’ body was frozen and now brought back to life by Victor Cassadine (Thaao Penghlis). Victor couldn’t do it alone, however. Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake (Kimberly McCullough) was forced to help Victor bring Stavros back from the dead in exchange for being able to help her best friend, Jason Morgan (Steve Burton/Billy Miller) at the same time. Of course Victor didn’t live up to his end of the bargain entirely. He only wanted Jason to be used as their medical miracle guinea pig, and never really expected he would be able to go home to his wife, Sam Morgan (Kelly Monaco) and son Danny.

Luke has been kidnapped, drugged, and help captive at a facility called Miscavige, the place where Heather Webber spent some time in the psych ward. Whoever kidnapped Luke, stole his identity, his face, his life. It has been several months since the real Luke Spencer has been absent from the lives of his loved ones, while the impostor Luke would walk around the town of Port Charles making everyone believe that he was the same old Luke. People are starting to catch on to Luke’s odd behavior. Little Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Bechtel) already overheard Luke threatening his uncle Sonny (Maurice Benard), Ava Jerome (Maura West) has seen Luke as her ‘boss’ but knows it isn’t really him… Julian (William DeVry) knows that the fake Luke is actually someone he was in the WPP with a while back. After Tracy (Jane Elliot) has been trying to get in touch with Luke over the disappearance of his daughter Lulu, she starts to sniff out the fishy situation. She knows that Luke would never ignore the fact that Lulu was in danger.

Will Luke be rescued or break free on his own in time to save Lulu from Cassadine control? Stavros has BIG plans for Lulu Spencer Falconeri and Luke may be the only one who can save her. Come October, we will know who the fake Luke really is… perhaps he will be revealed just in time, before Stavros does the unthinkable to Lulu.

 

Stavros Cassadine Has BIG Plans for Lulu Spencer

The look on Lulu’s (Emme Rylan) face when that door swung open was nothing less than a look of terror. Stavros Cassadine (Robert Kelker-Kelly) is completely unhinged and was obsessed with Lulu’s mother, Laura Spencer (Genie Francis) for years. More recently, Stavros became fascinated by Lulu and even went to the lengths of kidnapping her, brainwashing her, in hopes that they would marry. The dynamic duo that is Luke (Tony Geary) and Laura Spencer (Lulu’s parents), along with her husband Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna), came to her rescue. For some time, Lulu was confused and did not remember being married to Dante. Eventually she came around and was able to overcome the traumatic events that took place when kept prisoner by Stavros Cassadine.

The Spencer/Falconeri clans thought they were rid of Stavros after he was killed in Lulu’s rescue… but of course, a real Cassadine is never really dead. Stavros’ body was frozen and was recently brought back to life by Victor Cassadine (Thaao Penghlis), with the help of Dr. Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough).

Now that Stavros has returned, and he already has Lulu in his grasp, he reveals his big plans that he has for the two of them. Stavros is still sickly infatuated with Lulu. He proclaimed obsession and told her that the two of them will be married and start a family. He must know what has been going on in their lives recently with their struggle to conceive a child. Stavros insulted Dante by calling him impotent, and referred to the fact that he and Lulu are struggling with pregnancy.

How will Stavros try and make Lulu have his child? We all know she would never comply. If Dr. Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) is on Victor’s side, or even if she is forced to help Victor because she has been keeping their son, Nathan (Ryan Paevey) a secret from him, it is possible that Stavros could use one of Dante and Lulu’s embryos. It is almost certain that NO GH FAN wants to see a Stavros and Lulu baby! Robert Kelker-Kelly does a fantastic job of portraying this ultra creepy, completely eccentric, man who is obviously disturbed. The Cassadine/Spencer war lives on with these brilliant actors. Stavros wants his Ice Princess and he may just be able to get it…

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!

Who is Staying in Port Charles? Who Will be Leaving?

General Hosptal’s 50th anniversary brought back many familiar faces. Some we expected to see and others came as a complete shock. Have you been wondering which of these characters will be sticking around and for how long? We have some answers for you. In an interview with TV Guide, Ron Carlivati gives fans the inside scoop on the actors/characters comings and going.

Luke, Laura, and Scotty’s love triangle still has room to grow. Even after Luke and Laura get back from their adventure of saving their daughter, Lulu, these three characters will be sticking around so that Luke, Laura, and Scotty can work things out.

Carlivati states that Lucy Coe and her portrayer Lynn Herring will be sticking around Port Charles for a long while. He even says, “I think Lucy is already planning next year’s Nurses Ball!”

Felicia (Kristina Wagner) had to choose between the two great loves of her life, Frisco (Jack Wagner) and Mac John York). She chose Mac and now Frisco is bitter and angry. Maxie is having a baby in a few months so this does leave an opening for a possible visit from Frisco in the near future.

Ingo Rademacher (Jax) scored a spot on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars so GH had less time to work with him. The whole story with Brenda, Michael and Carly was a quick decision after Ingo was set to be on DWTS.

Regarding Nurse Bobbi (Jackie Zeman), Carlivati tells TV Guide that she will be leaving Port Charles. But he says she will definitely be returning to Port Charles for other important events.

There as been a lot of back and forth regarding whether or not John Stamos will be reprising his role as Blackie Parrish. Carlivati explains threat there was a lot of confusion and miscommunication when it comes to Stamos. He also mentions that there is still a possibility for his return in the future.

Those at GH plan to celebrate it’s 50th anniversary all year long. This leaves a lot of time for more intense, classic GH stories involving vet characters.
