Tony Geary Leaves GH, He Explains, “I Need to Clear My Head Out”

There has been a lot of back and forth in regard to the status of GH vet, Anthony Geary, whether or not he will be leaving General Hospital after the big Fluke/Spencer family reveal.

We finally know the truth the the fan’s burning question, ‘Is Anthony Geary leaving General Hospital?’ Fans, fear not, because there has been no confirmation of the rumors circulating that Geary would be retiring his 37 year role on GH as Lucas Lorenzo Spencer. However, in the most recent issue of Soaps in Depth, Geary told the magazine that he has briefly left GH. He stated, “I need to clear my head out.” With all the in and out Luke does in Port Charles, his absence will easily fit into the story line.

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.

Luke Spencer’s Deep Dark Secret Revealed

It’s been a long time coming and fans can’t seem to wait another moment to find out what the big Spencer Family secret is that could have caused Luke to repress such terrible memories, causing his DID.

Something is haunting Luke from his past, and the newest member of the Spencer family may be the key to tying it all together. GH has cast Dee Wallace to play Luke and Bobbie’s other sister, Pat Spencer.

General Hospital spoilers reveal that around GH’s 52nd anniversary episode, the Spencer family secret will come out. GH rumors have been focusing on one angle in particular. Many seem to think that Luke Spencer is responsible for killing his own mother, and the only one who knows about it is his sister, Pat.

Currently, Fluke has tracked down his niece Valerie, the daughter of his long lost, thought to be dead, sister, Pat. He wants to know where she is. Does Luke want answers from dear old sis, or does he want to kill her? If the GH rumors are true, and Pat is the only one who holds the key to Luke’s past, perhaps he will need to shut her up, permanently.

We want to know what you think about this story. Do you think that Luke will be responsible for his mother’s death? Is this the direction in which you would like to see this character head into?
