GH Recap: Sonny Gets Away With Murder!

MichaelCarlySonnyDocks.jpg

Bombs blew up all over Port Charles, and not only was Sonny in no way responsible for them, he risked his life to save the lives of others. He was a hero, a label Michael was conflicted to acknowledge. Dante encouraged him to do what any other decent human being would do: tell Sonny "thank you"!

Sonny was recovering from the blast in a hospital bed, as Carly, Morgan and Shawn stood vigil. Morgan couldn't hide his anger that his father almost died and Michael was nowhere to be seen. Still weak from the happenings of the night before, Sonny tried to get Morgan to cool his jets and not judge his brother.

Across the bay on Spoon Island, Ivy walked in on Nikolas, and she was ready for a fight. Not only did he stand her up at the Haunted Star party, it was his grandmother who was to blame for the whole nightmare. As she stormed out, Lulu stormed in with a similar rant. Thanks to some poorly chosen words on Nikolas' part, her voice raised even louder when he let it slip that he knew of the bomb before it blew. "You're not the brother I thought you were!" she shouted.

Meanwhile, Helena and Fluke were in adjacent jail cells, looking to blame someone for their fate. Helena, however, had a "get out of jail free card" in the form of Sloane, who, along with Mayor Lomax , was in her back pocket. Sloane drove home the point that if he released them, suspicion would fall on him, which would cause a domino affect that would obliterate their plans. Fluke agreed. The only way for Sloane not to blow his cover was to let the investigation play out as it normally would... with the discovery of who Fluke really was!

Back at GH, Obrecht told Nathan she'd gladly assist in the investigation. "All the answers you seek about Luke Spencer will be found here," she said, whipping back a sheet to reveal charred bones. "Among his remains." After getting the okay from Sloane to continue with the investigation, she tested the bones to determine their age and Nathan ran Fluke's fingerprints through the police database. Shortly afterwards, she informed Tracy and Lulu that the bones had been decaying at least 20 years, so the corpse couldn't be Luke's. Nathan rushed in with news of his own. "The fingerprints of the man we have in custody are a match..." he said. "... for Luke Spencer."

While Kiki was getting word from Sloane that they called off the search for Ava and she was presumed dead, Dante paid Sonny a visit. "What you did, took that bomb from Michael and jumped in the water with it. Pretty impressive there, old man," Dante said. "I'm glad you're alive." He gave his father a long, tight hug, bringing tears to Sonny's eyes. Cops interrupted the moment to escort Sonny back to Pentonville. As he was being wheeled out, Michael arrived to see him, as did Ivy. She towed along with her her father, the governor of New York. "You acted selflessly and with great heroism," the governor said. "And because of your courage, I don't think you should spend another day behind bars."

Monday on GH, Sam loses sleep over Jake, Helena tries to swing a deal with Tracy and Michael reacts to the news that A.J.'s killer is going free! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

At Long Last, We Know Who Fluke Is!

FlukeIsLuke.jpg

Over the past year, GENERAL HOSPITAL fans have been trying to figure out the identity of the man we dubbed "Fluke." Who has been impersonating Luke and terrorizing the people of Port Charles? Theories ran the gamut from the believable ("Bill Eckert never really died!") to the outlandish ("Brenda is wearing a Luke mask... and, um, lifts!"). But as of today, we know the truth: Fluke is really... Luke?

Warning: Stop reading now if you don't want to know the answer!

Last week, the pieces began falling in place when Dante was trapped in the Elm Street basement with what viewers believed to be a captive Luke. Yet when the cop woke up with the prisoner, what he actually saw was a rotting corpse! Today, it was determined that the body in question most likely belonged to the long-dead Bill.

But the truth came in the final moments. As "Fluke" languished in his cell, he admitted, "The answer's been staring them in the face the whole time. And not one of them cared to see it." Meanwhile, Nathan -- aka Detective Sexypants -- got the results of a finger print test which proved that the man in custody, the one who'd been dubbed Fluke, was in fact Luke!

What the... ?!? Next week, the show will begin to examine exactly how Luke became Fluke... and why! But in the meantime, we want your thoughts on the shocking twist! Hit the comments and let us know if you were blown away, disappointed, more confused than ever... or a combination of all three!

GH's Julius Takes To The Airwaves!

GregoryZarian.jpg

Fans loved Gregory Zarian as Julius, Kate's flamboyant assistant on GENERAL HOSPITAL. Now, the actor/model is taking on a series of equally memorable roles. First, he guest stars in the Monday, February 2, episode of ABC's CASTLE (the one in which GH's Brianna Brown [ex-Lisa] is the main guest star). "I play Scott Galloway, a stockbroker who's questioned in the murder of Castle's friend, Eva," Zarian reveals. "I also got to work with Trent Dawson (Henry, AS THE WORLD TURNS) in the scene."

Then on ABC Family's CHASING LIFE, look for Zarian to play opposite Scott Michael Foster as his father's good friend. "It's a combative, back-and-forth scene," Zarian relates. "In it, I'm the [jerk] who's basically dismissing his illness. Cancer is a personal issue to me as it has greatly affected my family, so I was happy to be part of this." The episode, titled "The Big Leagues," airs Monday, February 16 at 9 p.m. EST.

Next, look for Zarian to make a splash in the Thursday, March 26, episode of FOX's BONES. "I play Anthony Taylor, a handsome, perfectly dressed psychic accused of killing someone he knows," Zarian reveals of the episode titled "The Psychic In The Soup." "Cyndi Lauper also appears [in her recurring role as Angela's singing psychic, Avalon Harmonica] and trashes my character. I worked with John Boyd who plays Special Agent James Aubrey. It was just way fun!"

For the actor, who'd long wanted to be a part of the hit FOX drama, finally landing the perfect part on it turned out to be worth the wait. "It truly is a cohesive group of people that love what they do, get along, and make you feel like you're family," he relates. "I got to sit next to [series star] Emily Deschanel in makeup, and we had a great chat about life and about me being a twin [with TV style guru Lawrence Zarian]."

GH Recap: Dante Finds "Luke"!

FlukeLukeBat.jpg

If you didn't see Friday's GENERAL HOSPITAL, go to ABC.com and watch it! It's "must see TV"!

GENERAL HOSPITAL's Fluke has graduated from swinging wooden bats to strategically placing time bombs, all with the intent of taking out... well, you name them, and they're in danger!

Fluke and Helena -- dressed like she was in a revival of Doctor Zhivago -- were all but giddy with their plan to blow up the Haunted Star and the party guests on board. "Once the Haunted Star goes up in flames and my muscle at Pentonville make their moves, there will be no stopping me," Fluke said with an ominous grin. But things weren't going as smoothly as they hoped!

As the bomb ticked away behind the champagne bottles under the HS bar, Patrick and Sam arrived at the PCPD, to file a report about Jake breaking into her penthouse and stealing the phoenix figurine. Carly, however, was already there, turning in the evidence that proved Jake was the masked man who used Sam as a human shield to help Faison escape. Shortly thereafter, Nathan arrived at the Haunted Star, handcuffed Nathan and arrested him for a laundry list of charges, none of which Jake had a memory of committing.

As the cops walked Nathan across the pier and to their vehicles, Fluke and Helena hid. "It looks like your soldier toy is as incompetent as the rest of these dimwits," Fluke scoffed. Helena assured Luke, "But the police don't know about the bomb." She was right! And another person who didn't know about the bomb was Nikolas. When Helena learned that her beloved grandson was off to the party, she literally shook him by the collar and told him, "You cannot go to that party!" And when that didn't convince him, she had her goons take over!

Our Pentonville escapees, Julian, Sonny, Ava and Franco made a getaway in the stolen police transport van. Franco and Ava bickered the whole time about his adoration for Nina, which gave Ava the giggles. "You piggybacked on my escape for that horror show?" she laughed. Franco was not amused. Meanwhile in Shadybrook, Heather showered Nina with attention, giving her a manicure and adding a touch of blood red polish. Then she hit Nina with the truth: she was Franco's mother! Nina's smile dropped and fear slow set in.

Sam, Patrick and Carly watched as Jake was brought into the police station in handcuffs. He assured them that he had no recollection of committing any of those crimes. Then suddenly, he was hit with a flashback of seeing a woman in Dr. Collins' chair. He was about to tell them it was Helena when a cop interrupted them and announced that there was a jailbreak at Pentonville

At the same time, Julian called Lucas (who was at the party) and tried to warn him about Fluke but was cut off when the phone battery went dead. Fluke, who made an appearance back on the Haunted Star and planned to make a hasty retreat before it blew to smithereens, told Johnny about the escape. Remembering that the phone Julian used was actually Johnny's, he was easily about to track their exact location! Moments later, the van carrying the foursome found themselves being tailed closely by another vehicle. Was it Johnny? Whatever the case, Julian lost control of the van and it crashed!

Meanwhile, Dante lay unconscious on the basement floor of the Spencer house, with blood oozing from the bash on his head. As he slowly came to, he tried to make it over to a chair, assuming it was Luke. Blurry-eyed, he saw a bomb resting on the legs of the person sitting. When Dante's eyes made their way up to the face, he was horrified by what he saw... a decaying body!

Monday on GH, Sam wants answers from Jake, Heather wishes Franco were dead, and two bombs are set to cause massive destruction! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

GH Recap: "We're Breaking Out Tomorrow!"

FrancoSonnyJulianJail.jpg

Mother's Day came early in Port Charles in the form of two convicts and a psychopath. If you missed Friday's GENERAL HOSPITAL, this is how it played out...

It all started in Pentonville prison. Sonny was telling Julian that the only way to truly protect their kids was to breakout out of prison, do what they needed to do and then disappear. Just as it was back in town when they were free birds, someone was eavesdropping and, unfortunately, that someone was Franco. He made them an offer they couldn't refuse: Let him use their contraband phone or he'd tell the guard everything he heard.

Meanwhile in Shadybrook, Heather was clobbering Nina in a game of Battleship. Distant and distracted, Nina wanted to talk, and talk they did! Nina opened up about the man who hurt her (Silas). Then she calmed and smiled, "I should've known from the beginning that Franco was the only one I could trust." Heather jumped, "Did you say Franco?!" Now Heather was listening!

Nina went on to talk about Ava, the coma and the baby she lost. Heather's attentive ear continued to draw Nina in. "Why couldn't I have had a mother like you?" Nina said softly. Light bulb moment! Heather gently put Nina's head on her shoulder, saying sweetly, "In here, I can be your mother. Come to momma." After Heather introduced herself as Diana Taylor, a guard came in and told Nina she had a call. It was Franco. Warm, caring and concerned, he apologized for the way things turned out. Nina told him that Shadybrook was scary but then added, "Believe it or not, I think I made a friend today." Uh oh.

Back in Pentonville, Ava woke from a bad dream to see Madeline in her cell. She was the last person Ava wanted to see. "I can't be with my baby and it's your fault!" Ava barked. Madeline turned and got all teary-eyed. "I remember that my... violently disturbed daughter... forced me against my will to do horrible... unspeakable things," Madeline sniffled.

Then she turned to face Ava again and smiled broadly. "Did you like that?" Madeline asked. "That's the exact performance I'll give tomorrow when i testify in my own defense." After Madeline was escorted back to her cell, a guard pulled out a knife and approached Ava slowly. "Lady, you got so many enemies," he said cryptically. "What does it say that you don't even know which one of them wants you dead?"

Across town at the Haunted Star, Luke apologized to Michael and Lucas for giving them a hard time about the abandoned Spencer house and gave them his blessing to level it and build a clinic in its place. In addition, he wanted to throw a benefit for the clinic right there on the Haunted Star.

Over at Kelly's, Kiki and Morgan were trying their best to parent little Avery when Dante and Lulu came in and joined them. Morgan mentioned that he still hadn't found a job, prompting Lulu to offer him one on the Haunted Star. Gratefully, he accepted, and they went to the docked boat so she could show him around. Once there, when Michael learned Morgan would now be at the party because he'd be working it, Michael had a hissy fit and turned down the venue.

Monday on GH, Shawn and Jordan open Bill Eckert's gave and are shocked by what they find, Franco is rocked when he learns who Nina's friend really is, and Ava joins Julian in a wild new scheme! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

UPDATE: GH Recasts Kiki!

HayleyErinGal.jpg

Kristen Alderson may be leaving GENERAL HOSPITAL, but the soap isn't losing the character of Kiki Jerome. Daytime Confidential is reporting that THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS alum Hayley Erin (ex-Abby) will be taking over the role. Coincidentally, Erin was replaced as Y&R's Abby by Emme Rylan, who is now GH's Lulu!

"As many of you know, Kristen Alderson has decided to leave GENERAL HOSPITAL and start a new professional journey," a show spokesperson says. "As a member of our ABC family since she was six years old, we will miss Kristen and wish her only the best in her new ventures. As a result, the role of Kiki Jerome will be recast with Hayley Erin. Hayley will start appearing as Kiki in late February. Please join us in welcoming Hayley to our cast."

Seeing as how Kiki is currently embroiled in raising her baby sister while her mother is in prison and possibly rekindling feelings with her ex-husband, it's no wonder that GH has chosen to recast the role. Where the character will be taken next remains top secret! Stay tuned!
