On Monday's General Hospital:
Emotions ran high as the black and white ball entered its ninth hour. That's right; there are only 2 more episodes of actual ball before we see the end-scene we were flashed at the beginning of November sweeps. (Check below for a confirmed spoiler.)
Luke fell to the ground in pain as Zacchara gloated over scaring him into a heart attack. After Anthony went off to cause more terror, leaving Luke to die, it was Logan who found him and, with Scotty's help, moved him to the room where Tracy was recovering from her fall. Emily was brought in to confirm that he was in fact having a heart attack, and with the help of Edward's medicine in Tracy's purse, they were able to stabilize Luke for the moment.
It was odd and poignant to watch the infallible Luke Spencer fall, but also very realistic. As Emily pointed out, one cannot abuse one's body for years and then wonder why it gives out. As both Scott and Luke reflected on their long-time feud, it became apparent they've continued to fight out of habit and really (sort of) have a respect for each other. I'm looking forward to watching Geary play out the recovery, assuming a realistic recovery from a heart attack is in future scripts.
But before Emily treated Luke, it broke her heart to lock Nikolas in the wine cellar for his own protection as well as that of every guest at Wyndermere. Just moments after telling her she had to keep him locked away, Nikolas flew into another rage, pounding at the door and screaming at Emily to release him. When she later returned to check on him, she found the wine cellar open and empty.
Moments before, we had seen Anthony lingering outside the cellar, and I have to wonder if it wasn't he who released Nikolas. But no matter how Nikolas escaped, the result was two psychos traipsing around the creepy castle.We've actually seen Anthony try, but fail, to take the lives of guests. With respect to those who have actually been injured, we've not seen how. Something tells me everything is not as black and white as it would appear at this ball.
