Explaining Luke/Fluke: Speculation
*** UPDATE: We know now that it was FAISON not Larry under the Mask Anna pulls off..if you substitute Faison for Larry in this, it still works.
I still say that is NOT the real Luke at the Q's house. I don't think it was Faison doing it the whole time, I think he just put the mask on this one day. (Remember Helena "Faison you have a task at hand")
So, there it is.
Here's my speculation. I have NO details. I seriously stayed off spoilers and although I had an inclination at the beginning of all this, I really think things have ebbed and flowed as time went by. With Geary's long absence especially. Everyone had time to regroup and rethink.
I love mysteries -- and this is what I think will happen based on 450 years of my watching soaps. So if I'm wrong...sorry!
That said, I still WANT HOPE AND NEED "FLUKE" to be Bill Eckert. Why? I can NOT tolerate another mask parade OR plastic surgery. I'm so over that. You have NO idea how over it. Ergo, I choose to continue to believe this is Bill. Why does he hate Sonny so much? No idea--other than maybe Sonny ruined X number of crime families that Bill worked for? I don't know. I DO know he'd have connections with the entire cartel, and especially Larry Ashton. The Quartermaine thing fits like a glove as does the Jerome thing. Maybe Bill thought Luke should have been the one to "die" and not him. Taking over Luke's life now would be sweet revenge. Also note that he really hasn't mentioned the taking down Sonny angle in awhile.
Explaining what I think is happening now:
1. Fluke/Luke are in the bin, and we are kind of led to believe it's either Ashton or Faison in there because of the "mask" and the safety deposit box photo. Editing made it seem that way. BUT! It's neither of them, it's Bill Eckert.
2. Helena comes in..threatens the real LUKE--we see her with the knife. Then commercial yada yada... and then Helena is walking out as Alexis is walking in with Julian (who I think is clueless at this point). Helena just lets her go in there. Doesn't yell, doesn't pull out a knife. Just leaves. Like she WANTS HER TO GO IN! Alexis finds Luke, unties him and he makes her double think it's him by saying "Natasha". I'm thinking Helena, after waking up, filled ol' Bill in on everything he needed to know to further his cause. The "Cupcake" for Lulu--the grandson thing. Making him more "Luke Like".
The switch happened before Alexis even got there-- Luke is somewhere else.
3. Alexis says "Let's go to the cops"...panic on "Luke's face"..and in the end he showers and goes to the Q's. Makes people think it's him. Outs Larry Ashton. Larry has "A car waiting" and runs. Everyone is like "he's the FAKE"!! It fits. The safety box, the mask on the flash drive, everything.
4.up...Larry is at Julian's. I can't think it's Faison in a mask as he's way way too short. Ashton has the hair too. Note when the mask is peeled off in the preview, there's no hair. Ok, so.. Anna finally 'discovers' the FAKE Luke (Ashton) which is all part of the plan. He goes away. BILL is able to totally be LUKE with no strings as everyone will think the fake guy is out of the picture.
The one loose end is Faison. I think he's in there as a red-herring and part of the "Let's take over Port Charles" contingent.
Does this make ANY sense? It's all I can think of that's going to happen. Maybe the only person that can stop this is Laura. Wouldn't that be awesome? She comes in for sweeps takes one look at Fluke and Goes..OMG you are Bill Eckert!! I'd love that. Then, the real Luke and Laura would sail off into the sunset (because Geary is finally retiring).
This is my story. Now, it could be totally wrong and that's the fun of it all. YOU have your own speculations I'm sure. Have at it!
