Soap Opera Digest, the most reliable source in the soap industry, confirmed that Geary is set to reprise his role as the one and only, Luke Spencer!
“Anthony Geary, who exited GH as Luke Spencer in 2015, returns to the show on May 4th in conjunction with Jane Elliot’s final episode as Tracy. ‘We always thought that he would figure into Tracy’s future,’ says Co-Head Writer Jean Passanante of Luke. When Geary agreed to the reprisal, she adds, ‘We were thrilled,'” reported Soap Opera Digest.
Then, Soap Opera Digest reported last week the following: “Rumor has it that Geary may reprise Luke for Tracy’s swan song.”
A GH rep issed a non-denial “denial” in response to SOD’s query about this possibility. “No comment,” the rep said. If he weren’t going to they would come out and say it, right, dear Soap Cities readers?
SOD also astutely pointed out that GH Executive Producer Frank Valentini said the Port Charles city gate is never closed for Geary.
“The door will always remain open, so don’t think this is the last you’ll see of Anthony Geary or Luke Spencer,” Valentini said.
And now we know it’s true!
Emotional Times for Tracy and Lulu–a Perfect Chance for Luke to Return?
Tracy has been riding quite an emotional roller-coaster lately. First, Larry Ashton (Oliver Muirhead) reappeared. He brought news of the Edward’s painting in Turkey, which led Tracy and Laura (Genie Francis), two of the most important women in Luke’s life, to jet off to Turkey to retrieve it. Then came news of Ned’s (Wally Kurth) impending marriage to Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), which Tracy was supportive of, but it’s still a big change for her.
Tracy even wept in Ned’s arms a couple days ago because of all she’s been through lately.
Lulu (Emme Rylan), Luke’s daughter, has been having a heck of a time too. She’s been locking horns with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) over Charlotte (Scarlett Fernandez). There’s no one better to put a Cassadine in his place than Luke!
So, it’s really the perfect time for Geary to return! What do you think, Soap Cities readers?
