Lucas Lorenzo Spencer as we know him is gone. So far gone that he is unrecognizable to his daughter Lulu Falconeri, and his love, Tracy Quartermaine. The two most important women in Luke’s life are at a loss, not knowing what has come over the ones loving, sincere man they once knew.
Lulu and Tracy had their hopes high with the idea of being able to blame Helena Cassadine for Luke’s 180 in his personality. For the past year, he has been acting like a completely different person, so much so that his loved ones and residents of PC actually began to believe that Luke WAS another person. When Faison turned out to be just a decoy so that Fluke could continue on withreeking havoc on the city of PC, everyone was convinced that Helena had perform mind conditioning on Luke, as she had done on Jake Doe (Jason Morgan). Lulu did not want to face the conclusion that her adoring father had actually tried to kill her and everyone he/they care about. She and Tracy needed someone to blame for Luke’s behavior and they had their minds set on Luke’s arch enemy, Helena.
When it turned out that Jake Doe was found to have a microchip in his brain as Helena disclosed, Luke however did not. As of now, there is no reason to believe that Helena has used a microchip to control Luke Spencer. That doesn’t mean that it ends there. As Tracy told Luke today, it is clear that there is much more to this than Luke is leading on. He claims these acts are his and his alone. That the way he treated his daughter, Tracy, and wanting what Sonny has has been in him this whole time, and that he just now figured out how to TAKE all the power.
Just as we as fans and the characters of GH thought that had this Fluke mystery all figured out, we encountered yet another setback. The story feels like a never ending mystery and many fans are ready to through their hands in the air and give up trying to solve it. Hopefully it won’t be much longer until Tracy, Lulu, Nikolas, or whoever has the power to get to the bottom of this does just that.
What do you think is really going on with Luke Spencer? Since he is NOT an impostor, and Helena claims she is not controlling him, what could have happened? Did the drugs he was given in Miscavige effect his brain this severely? Will we ever get our beloved Luke back? Will Lulu get to see her dad enjoy his grandson Rocco when this is all over? We will just have to stick it out a little longer and watch it all unfold in upcoming episodes of General Hospital.
