Luke Remembers

Yesterday General Hospital outdid itself on it's 52nd anniversary show by finally revealing the trauma that was causing Luke to act the way he was. In an episode done in mostly black & white, Patricia Spencer and Luke and Bobbie remembered that night 52 years ago when their beloved mother died.

Patricia remembered how an ugly argument with their drunken father escalated and Luke accidentally hit his mother with a baseball bat knocking her unconscious. Patricia took her mother to General Hospital where we saw what happened that night.

Current actors played the roles of Dr. Steve Hardy, Dr. Phil Brewer and Nurse Jessie. Laura Wright (Carly) did a wonderful job of portraying the battered mother of Luke, Bobbie and Patricia. Tony Geary more than earned his Emmy nomination by portrayed his drunken father.

A young Bill Eckert was called to the hospital to help support a shocked Patricia after her mother died from brain swelling and accompanied her back to the Spencer home to rescue Luke and Bobbie from their father. Patricia and Bill walked in to find Luke crouched in shock as his father lay dead.

Luke had buried the truth of what really happened that night and only remembered when he returned to the Spencer home.

Lucas received a phone call telling him that a man was seen entering the condemned property and tipped off his mom who along with Patricia, Tracy and Lulu rushed to find Luke at the house.

The women helped Luke to remember what happened that night as Luke broke down horrified by remembering what he had done. He also remembered Bill Eckert's dying words to him that he needed to forgive himself for accidentally killing his mother.

It was a powerful episode but as those in the NY Tri-state area were disgusted (to put it mildly) when the news station cut off the last two minutes of the program. We were later able to view it but it did ruin the momentum of the episode.

So...what do you think about yesterday's reveal?
