Whether you love it or roll your eyes at it, General Hospital certainly makes you take notice. I found myself going back and back again to the time when "Fluke" first appeared. Trying to see if the DID ("split-personality") thing fit.
I've given up. I'm done asking questions and trying to fill the holes. I surrender.
Belly up and get some bacon, a maple donut and...oh dang it's not Fat Tuesday right? I'll have a nice egg-white omelet and a sip of cherry juice and if I smoked probably a drag on something.
Yep, Tony Geary can act. He can yell too (see what theater training does for you kiddos? Great breath support). Jackie Zeman did a fine job as the hurt sister that was looking for the truth. It will be an emmy reel for sure. When Tracy came in and "Luke" was back, wowza. Tony did such a perfection job. The tears in his eyes were so..genuine. Very good stuff. Yes.
"Why, it's almost like he's TWO PEOPLE" Lulu says...Light bulb goes on in Tracy's head. (I think for the first time in a year). Bobbie meets them at Kelly's and in about 10 minutes they get the fact that Luke is suffering from some split-self because of his childhood traumas. Bobbie thinks she can "find someone to help" with the memories. Will it be the elusive PATRICIA we've heard all about? Seems like Tracy will find her and drag the truth out of her. Casting will be interesting!
What demons followed Luke out of that house on Elm Street? Did they follow him as far back as Laura's rape? It will be very interesting to see how this unfolds. Perhaps Luke/Fluke were one for a long time then split. Seems Luke would have giant chunks of his life missing if they were separate all this time.

Jake's Brain. What's in Jake's brain? Is it like what was in Jason's brain or just the fact that he had the same choice to make 10 years ago? Seems like it. Jake gets taken into surgery and has a flashback as he goes under. He hears Helena tell him he's really Jason. Will he wake up remembering? Oh, you don't think it will be that easy, do you? Liz and Patrick think he knows who he is...but no dice. Nik thinks Jake will remember so he didn't tell Liz what Helena told him. What a web.
Post note: Just remembered that Nikolas went through all the people that should know about Jake "those close to him" AND FORGETS MONICA????? Um, Yeah. Looks like everyone has forgotten his mother.
Speaking of great baby scenes-- Lulu and Maxie were awesome together. Really liked the dialog. The kids were so cute!! The loft was looked Baby-Fun!!! Their talk was genuine and I am so happy they are back being friends. Now, move them into the Brownstone together. Come on! DO IT!!
|See ya, Shorty|
RUNNER UP: I don't have a picture but I really loved the Lulu/Maxie scene with the babies. Very natural, great dialog and very believable the way they were bantering. More please.
If you read the blog this week, you saw how much I really liked Friday's show. It was very character driven, old school soapy. Now the end is here in the Tony/Luke saga and I HOPE it plays out wonderfully. Fingers' crossed!!
This week will be crazy for me at work... I have 2 new clients to start with and the massive cold makes my days stressful. (and there's GUS too...still lame as heck) So, If I'm not here I'll try to at least get a post up for you to comment on!
It was a big week...what did you think of the "end result" of all the Fluke stuff?
