“General Hospital” (GH) spoilers hint that Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary) could be back to Port Charles for a visit. Geary said after his exit that he might be open to a return – and GH fans know that the big motivator for Geary’s exit was his conflict with former head writer Ron Carlivati.
Geary has made his big retirement move to Amsterdam but with Carlivati gone, things may change. Geary told Entertainment Weekly, “I may come back to the show for six weeks or so.” Could Geary be back less than a year after his exit? And what could bring him back? In a word – Helena!
Laura Spencer (Genie Francis) had a recent conversation with Tracy Quartermaine (Jane Elliot) that seemed random but may have had the sole intent of foreshadowing a return of both Luke and his nemesis Helena Quartermaine (Constance Towers).
Laura dredged up their mutual ex-husband’s name in the guise of asking Tracy if she knew how to contact Luke so she could let him know about Helena’s death. But Helena’s been dead for weeks – so why talk about this now? Is this an Easter egg for fans that Luke and Helena may be back?
Let’s consider this – Luke’s exit was dissatisfying. He went out without a last goodbye to Laura – Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) was his last farewell. Sure they were pals, but they weren’t his family. Then Luke just walked off into the night – after Francis came back specifically for the farewell…
For many GH fans, it felt like Ron Carlivati robbed Geary of a proper send off. And as for Helena’s death – how can a woman that wicked go out with a whimper rather than a bang? Did anyone, for a moment, believe that Helena really died in that room?
Helena’s “death” was timed perfectly to cheat Jason Morgan (Billy Miller) out of any information that could implicate Helena’s wicked grandson Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher). It was all pretty convenient.
Nikolas later swore that he personally saw Helena buried, but come on… Also, Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough) was working on a cure for whatever ailed Helena – maybe something she came up with worked.
Helena has died much more dramatically before and managed to survived – so why would she pass in her bed on Cassadine Island so easily? The answer? She wouldn’t. Plus, we still need answers from Helena about little Jake Spencer (James Nigbor).
While no “General Hospital” spoilers have specifically mentioned the return of Luke or Helena yet, the groundwork has been laid and it seems like it should only be a matter of time. Certainly, at Constance Towers age, she’s likely looking to retire from playing Helena.
But the way her exit was written was just lame. Let’s hope the writers intentionally made it less than an impressive exit because it wasn’t an exit at all. Fingers crossed Helena is back with one last scheme to go out in a blaze of glory – perhaps even at Luke’s hands…
Anything dramatic would do – an explosion, a fall from a Wyndemere parapet, destroyed by her evil mini puppet Jake Spencer… Stay tuned to CDL for daily “General Hospital” spoilers plus news, updates and more.
