General Hospital fans have been on the edge of their seats for months now waiting for the identity of Fake Luke to be revealed and GH spoilers explaining who the imposter is. If you are one of those fans, then don’t hold your breath, according to General Hospital spoilers you are going to have a long wait ahead of you.
According to the June 30th edition of Soap Opera Digest, Ric Lansing and Fake Luke will be off the Port Charles canvas for the majority of the summer. The magazine revealed that Anthony Geary “has lengthy vacations built into his contract and left for hiatus.” Rick Hearst, who plays the part of Ric Lansing, will also be MIA for quite a while. According to SOD, “With Ric in the Witness Protection program, a GH rep confirms that the character will be off the canvas for the forseeable future.”
After Fake Luke ordered Julian to frame Ric Lansing, Anna staged Ric’s death and placed him in the Witness Protection program. Anna implied that Ric could return to Port Charles and reveal he is very much alive once the PCPD is able to bring down Julian’s boss. So, the fact that Ric is “off the canvas for the forseeable future” implies that Julian’s boss won’t be taken down anytime soon.
With Ric not returning any time soon that means that tensions between Molly and her Mom Alexis will continue and there is a good chance Elizabeth could wind up back with Nikolas Cassadine.
