Fluke: A Look Back
Ok, so..you know me, I HAD to go back and search old Fluke/Luke scenes. VERY Interesting. And VERY VERY inconsistent. I'm starting to think if it is DID or mindmeld this whole thing would fall apart in a nano-second. The only OTHER thing that could work would be a clone. One made in the Cassadine lab. HOWEVER, Clones must be born when the host is born to BE THE SAME AGE..
so, there's that.
Identical twins we didn't know about? Sorry..different fingerprints. Did they switch fingerprints in the base FBI thing? Could be--but then it will take until MAY sweeps to explain what's happening. Is that really Bill Eckert in there and Helena made him THINK he really IS Luke? (which would mean Luke is still alive somewhere). That was suggested awhile ago by me and brought up again yesterday by Patrix in the comments. If Fluke is convinced he's indeed Luke, it still doesn't explain ANYTHING in the beginning of even middle of this. Or how he's been doing it for eons. or why. or anything.
added: From an interview with Michael Logan in June of 2014:
Thank you very much. That's wonderful to hear. Doing Fluke has been a real cleansing after all my years of complaining and wondering what happened to Luke's black hat. To be able to take something this far and this dark has been a real joy after 36 years. Of course, we had to do it with a different character, since Luke is not a sociopath.
Take a look..I've found what I think are the telling videos. Until about December, we get no mention of Spencer history, btw. I am convinced that until about Novemberish that Fluke was Bill Eckert. You'll see why:
2/11/14: (it begins) Scott and Luke trapped in Mischavage together.. WATCH HERE This is when Heather was clearly the 'mastermind' He was even dressed like her (wig)
3/7/14: I'm including this scene because of Fluke's treatment of Monica. Fluke seems not to remember his Jazz Club. And he mentions the Outback. Like it's still around. He also drags up Monica's infidelities from the past. WAY PAST
**Note: EGG salad PAINTING is in the background!!!!!
3/24/14: Julian meets Fluke in the stables
Julian: You bled through Barret Industries..
Fluke: Which is why I need a legitimate company to front the business, one like ELQ. Which is why I proposed to Tracy!
Then he talks about being engaged being a pain because so many "hot women are out there that need my attention".
May 30th: Fluke in Mischavage...talking to Luke about taking over his life and keeping him ALIVE FOR HIS DNA if needed. "How did this all happen" I'll tell you it took a lot of planning. It took years to study you and your life so I could take over here in Port Charles...or as you say: Port Chuckles, ha, I love that".
SUMMER: Tony is off... here
8/1/14: Fluke talks to Ava. This was the day we supposedly got a "clue" and everyone ran with the number at the bottom pointing to an episode number. Ava discusses Alexis' house blowing up. Ergo, Luke if it's indeed Luke in there, tried to kill Alexis. (Forgot about that!)
****11/24/12: (Important day) Luke almost breaks out...Fluke holds him at gunpoint. VERY interesting convo here. "It became imperative for Luke Spencer to disappear" I've been gone six months. Six long months.
"I convinced everyone that Jerry Jacks held me captive".. "We didn't give her back YOU or even ME..we gave her back a totally different husband...Larry Ashton"'
Which begs the question: WHY BRING LARRY BACK?
at the 7:45 mark, We see Luke, alone after Fluke leaves ... interesting. We have also seen Luke spit out pills.
11/25/14: HELENA visits Luke in Mischavage . She pulls a knife on him and can't let him "Escape" This is when we thought the switch (Fake) happened. Alexis comes in to spring him out but it's not LUKE she gets out it's "Fluke" .
"There simply can't be two Luke Spencers running around"
Julian: This is where the switch happened...
12/3/14: I'm including the Faison mask part because it makes NO SENSE to do this elaborate RUSE switch... IF Luke has always been Luke. Why bother? Why have Larry Ashton and then have Faison pretend to steal "Lukes" life? So that "Luke" can get back in there--as HIMSELF? WTF? and sorry, they all believe Faison has been Luke--when he is a FOOT SHORTER? Um..okay then.
PS. This is also the incredible story that had ANNA put Faison in a PIT for a year and not check on his ass.
1/5/15: Bobby and Fluke. This is a big shift because the whole weird mention of Bill Eckert sends him nutty.
1/7/15: Fluke and Luke in the basement. We now know this is a corpse that Fluke is talking to. Haven't seen a DID/split personality talk to a doll or dummy as themselves before. Not sure that even happens..so??? Is it an hallucination? If so, who dressed the corpse up? Helena? Why would she do that? (that uniform is NEW btw, that thing wasn't buried in that).
AND..the part that so doesn't fit: On the docks Fluke and Helena talk about the corpse. He knew it WAS A CORPSE. Ergo.um..if he knew it was a corpse, why did he talk to it?
So..if this IS DID or mindcontrol or even Fight Club ..um, which Luke is "real"? It HAS to be Fluke because he comes/goes from Mischavage. "Luke"-- has to be NOT real and we, as the audience saw him as an illusion in scenes of his own. If he was never at Mischavage, who did Helena talk to and threaten? We know Fluke wasn't there that day--they switched them out. Why would the fake Fluke put himself in Mischavage? Unless Helena was trying to turn him "into" Fluke again? WTF. **NOTE: What about Helena poisoning Luke..and Luke killing her? UGH...
Look, I love a good mystery. I love trying to find the clues and get into the story. But this? You can't follow anything because it doesn't FIT. Maybe I'll be bowled over and there will be some miracle explanation. If they go with clones I'll flip. IF they go with DID or mindcontrol, I'll double flip. Doesn't leave much, does it?
Seems "Fluke" was bent on getting ELQ and taking over Sonny's biz in the beginning, then it morphed to the whole Spencer childhood stuff. Tens of millions of mentions of Pat Spencer.
BTW, don't tell me to lay back and "relax and enjoy" that's not how this works. That's not how any of this works! LOL.. mysteries need to have consistent things to be able to figure out! I loved when they switched Luke/Fluke out of Mischagage with Alexis. That was a great ruse---until it fell apart with the corpse in the basement. I still say Fluke was supposed to be Bill Eckert all along. I'm going with that. The rest of this since late November never happened.
PS. To have Finola gone for this part of the story is a giant misstep. Yes, people need time off but then, you curtail things to match that.
I did this today so I can link the Sunday blog here. Too much to get in one blog, especially when I need to bitch about St. Sonny of the Walks on Water.
What say you about all this? I have seen so many I DON'T cares it's amazing. To think a year was wasted on this is sad.
