What is Wrong with Luke?

Everyone wants to know, What the heck is going on with Luke? Something is seriously off about the already eccentric and quirky Lucas Lorenzo Spencer. Lately he is acting beyond bazaar, even for him. He has Tracy’s wheels turning, trying to figure out what has happened to him. Ever since he got back from the Miscavige Institute, he has been behaving in a manner that the people of Port Charles and we the fans have never seen before.

The most disturbing behavior we saw from Luke’s character was when he started snorting cocaine. He and Julian have it out for Sonny and plan to sabotage his coffee shipment with illegal drugs. Since this was such an extreme act for this character, what do you think is really going on with Luke?

Here are some theories that have been thrown out there by fans:

Luke was injected with drugs by the Cassadines

Luke is not really Luke and someone is wearing a Luke “mask”

Luke has been brainwashed.

 

GH’s Blast From the Past Cassadine Return!

Are you ready for the latest of the legendary returns? This time, it’s a Cassadine! General Hospital Blog welcomes back actor Thaao Penghlis to Port Charles Penghlis played Victor Cassadine, little brother of Mikkos Cassadine.

Victor Cassadine played a large role in a legendary General Hospital story line involving the Spencers, Cassadines, and the Ice Princess. He was last on the GH screen scene in 1981. His exit story involved Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary) and Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) aiding in sending Victor to jail. Look for Victor Cassadine to return to the scene on January 30th, 2014.

Anthony Geary Quitting General Hospital?

Will this be the end of Luke Spencer?

Anthony Geary, General Hospital’s legendary Luke Spencer, has been faced with making a huge decision due to a recent and supposed change regarding the actor’s pay. The network wants to decrease his yearly salary by 50%.

An article states that ABC no longer justifies paying Geary 1.5 million salary due to the decrease in GH ratings. However, I find this part to be false because General Hospital has been up in ratings and has been on fire since the 50th anniversary.

Geary is very serious about leaving General Hospital. In a recent statement, he expressed how he would want his character to actually die. He believes that fans are owed some type of actual closure. Geary states, “Those of us who have been on soaps forever, we ought to go out in a way that gives the audience real closure. But I know the network has a real resistance to that.”  He adds, “It’s not my choice, but I’ve had an awfully good run and I wouldn’t mind being a sacrificial lamb to let the audience believe that characters can really, really die.”

Anthony Geary is 66 years old and joined General Hospital as Luke Spencer in 1978. He left the canvas in 1984 and returned to GH 9 years later.

General Hospital Blog hopes that Geary and ABC can come to some sort of agreement that will ensure his presence on the show. Luke is a legend and Geary is an amazing actor. We are all better off being able to watch him on our screens.

Nikolas Sees Robin!

Nikolas and Britta have made their way to Athens and have arrived on Cassadine Island. Robin now knows that her parents are looking for her.  Today on General Hospital, Nik sees his dear friend Robin, who he thought has been dead for well over a year. What will happen now?

Luke Spencer Lives!

“Luke Spencer Lives” is what Luke himself shouted out to Helena after she came to him in a near death experience. Luke is determined to live and we have every reason to believe he will do so. Not only because he is Luke Spencer and, but also because Robin is the one supposedly working on the cure. Luke is a legend and Robin is a brilliant doctor. His chances of survival are very high in my opinion.

In Olivia’s vision, she saw Luke lying in a casket but then awaken and say he needs Spanks. Will Tracy get to Luke? Will they find the cure, or the person working on the cure in time?

 

Are We Getting Closer to the Return of Robin Scorpio Drake?

Luke is on the hunt for Jerry Jacks with the help of Laura and Holly. Dr. Obrecht may have pulled the wool over Holly’s eyes, but Laura knows that Jerry is very much alive. Luke needs a cure and they will stop at nothing to get their hands on it. Laura is onto Jerry. She knows he was hiding someone in that room and they are piecing together that Dr. Obrecht is in on it.

Luke and Laura have been called away from their quest to be there for what they think will be the birth of their grandchild. As Maxie went into labor today, Lulu called her Mother to let her know she would appreciate her support by being there. Luke and Laura made the decision to put Jerry on hold.

Holly is off on her own as of right now, looking for Dr. Obrecht and trying to save Robert Scorpio. Through her mission to save Robert, will she come across another one of Obretcht’s captives?

Anna is getting closer and closer to putting the pieces of the puzzle together. As she questions Britt, she cannot help but express that there is much more than weird coincidences going on here. Anna knows Dr. Obrecht, Cesar Faison, and even Britt have everything to do with what is happening to her family. Just wait until she finds out Faison is Britt’s Father!

Does Luke’s Quest to Save Himself Lead Straight to Robin?

Even from the grave Helena is able to cause Luke and the Spencer family misery. This time, Luke my pay the ultimate price, his life. Luke is on a quest to find the antidote for the radiation poisoning Helena gave to Luke via his own earring. Since last Summer, Jerry Jack’s life was in danger when he suffered from the same thing. He then poisoned the PC water supply and hit up the wealthiest residents in Port Charles to pay him for the cure. Jerry needed that money for his antidote. Luke is set to find Jerry in hopes that he has some answers.

I don’t know if you all remember, but back when Faison, Dr. Obrecht, Robert, Duke, Anna, and Robin were at the institution in Switzerland, there was a very brief Jerry Jacks cameo. Somehow he and Faison, Dr. Obrecht and Jerry are tied together. If you don’t remember, here is a little snippet from when this took place.

So will Luke’s quest to save himself lead to Robin’s return?

The Spencers vs. The Cassadines

Just as we thought Luke and the rest of the Spencer clan defeated Helena and her evil spawn Stavros, we got a huge surprise. Even dead Helena is out to take Luke down. In her DVD to Luke, Helena mentions that if he is watching the DVD, then she is indeed dead. The DVD offered more information about Luke’s medical condition than the doctor was able to offer him. Earlier that day, he was told by his doctor that there was a foreign toxin in his body. One that did not occur naturally, but one that was introduced by an outside factor. Luke learned that he was poisoned by Helena through his very one earring. She had it laced with a toxin that would slowly attack his body, ultimately killing him.

With Tracy by his side, Luke faces an epic battle against Helena Cassadine. She is so powerful that she can even torture him after her death. Do you think Luke will combat this poison? Will he live to see his grandchild?
