Ever since Ian Buchanan reprised the role of Duke Lavery there has been a heated debate as to what the powers that be had in mind. Duke and Anna fans rejoiced seeing their favorite couple reunited and all appeared to be on the up and up. However, as the weeks went by old time fans were not happy with the way Duke was acting, citing he would NEVER do or act the way he had been written. Many theories were thrown around including being brainwashed while in the Turkish prison he claimed to be in for the last 20+ years, his personality changed completely OR it had to be someone else posing as Duke Lavery. Executive Producer Frank Valentini had indicated in an interview this was ‘the real’ Duke…hence the heated discussions.

Thursday Ron Carlivati tweeted Friday’s episode was not to be missed as all would be revealed! Friday fans were at the edge of their seats as the episode unfolded and twitter exploded in a frenzy when they saw ‘Duke Lavery’ peel off his face in true Scooby Doo form! All of us groaned, upset we’d have to wait through the weekend to find out! I received numerous tweets and most agreed it HAD to be Faison!



In another exciting episode, today it was revealed the madman behind the mask was indeed Cesar Faison himself! Rumors had been going around for months that executives were working on getting Anders Hove back on our screens and wow what a comeback! Long time General Hospital fans were thrilled, new fans are enthralled and I think it’s safe to say General Hospital has pulled off the impossible…brought it back to the days of old!

Faison hovered over Robin as she tried to convince him to let her go back to her family. She tried to reason with the madman to no avail! He refused to let her go and as sick as always, believes he can continue his charade with Anna, who believes he is Duke. The show ended when it was also revealed Faison is holding the REAL DUKE LAVERY!!!!

How will he and Robin get out of this mess?? Time will tell, but until then hold on tight…it’s going to be one hell of a fun ride!

    Love the old school/new school GH and as a OLTL fan love the characters. Have been watching GH for 27 years. Love it

    You guys have to realize it’s all for fun! It’s a soap opera, not reality and the creepiness of it is the fact that Faison is fooling Anna! Vampires don’t really sparkle in the sun…talk about ridiculous but it’s a FAIRYTALE!! A fun escape! That’s what GH has been since Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati took over. Soaps, while some storylines are plausible, are for entertainment. Just enjoy the ride!! 😛

    The plot is ridiculous. As though a rubber mask would be realistic enough to fool anyone. He wants Anna in bed…can you imagine that in a rubber mask? Come on now! Time to fast forward lol.

  • Enough with the “Debbie Downers”! GH was just horrid this time last year. Barely watchable. The handful of characters brought over from OLTL are wonderful (mainly Todd) and the others have been used sparingly.

    As a GH fan for 35 years, I’ve seen it all. I love the infusion of history into our current storylines as well as the return of beloved characters and talented actors.

    As much as I love Jason, Sonny and Carly, the Earth does not revolve around them. The new direction GH has taken is nothing short of spectacular and the ratings say it all.

    My advice is either learn to love the revamped GH or stick your head in the sand.

    Chrissy, lovely article as usual. A true fan you certainly are.

    LOVE LOVE LOVe GH! Faison was mostly before I became an avid fan! I remember him being involved in Lucky’s kidnapping! I am so pleased with the writer’s going old school with a modern twist… Next can we work on bringing back some quatermanes,Lucy Coe, and Jason, and Brenda!!! Happy camper

  • patricia Foote-Johnson

    Thank you writers for bringing back one of the sexiest and exciting villians of all time,FAISON!My friends and I want more!Now all general hopital needs is another new male hunk, My neighbors and I are glued to the screen again!

  • Chrissy

    THANK YOU DARRYL!!! The time to move forward is here and I’m proud to be supporting General Hospital. This time last year we didn’t even know if they were going to keep the show, now it’s their top daytime rated show! The pace is fast, they’ve utilized GH’s history in current storylines and seeing the vets return is HUGE! Cograts to Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati for bringing the show back from the brink of death! Time to quit complaining, enjoy the show and be thankful it’s still on our screens!

    Are you kidding Tony? What exactly do you want to see on GH? I’m watching the 2008 episodes on Soap net and bored to tears. Now i understand the too much Sonny complaints. The Duke Lavery episodes are exciting and remind me of classic GH. I doubt it will sink GH. And the actor who played Jason decided to leave on his own, everyone needs to remember that and get over it.

  • Tony Sciolaro

    I guess the writers of GH want it to flop like their other Show did. Bringing all the hasbeens from that show to GH will sink it too. IF People wanted to watch those People the other show would still be on. Leave GH alone like it was and bring back Jason TOO
