At the end, Franco tells Ava to hurry up and help him get Nina back asap so Denise decides to invite Nina to breakfast.

Nathan finds Avery's blanket in Nina's hotel room. Nina assumes that Ric betrayed her and told Nathan. Ric assures her that's not the case. Nathan explains that Madeline told him she's hearing things. Nathan wants to take the blanket to the PCPD as evidence. He also wants Nina to come with him. Ric tells Nina if she leaves she'll end up in jail. She agrees and asks Nathan to leave. After Ric tells Nina in private that he's the only person she can trust. 

Madeline wants to talk to Maxie about her relationship with Nathan at the Metro Court. Madeline doesn't think Maxie is good enough for Nathan and she suggests that Maxie is ill bred. Meanwhile Valerie thinks about Dante as she walks into the Metro Court. Maxie sees her and calls Valerie a home wrecking bitch in front of Madeline. Later Madeline asks Valerie why Maxie thinks that about her. Maxie and Valerie end up having a tense conversation and Valerie walks out. After Madeline and Maxie argue and Nathan overhears it. At the end, Nathan tells Madeline he likes that Maxie stood up to her. 

At the Floating Rib, Dillon asks Morgan to read his latest film script and let him know if the dialogue is believable. Morgan tells him about dating Kiki and Dillon mentions dating a woman in LA who cheated on him. After Dillon starts gushing about Lulu. Morgan reminds him she's married to Dante. Later Valerie storms in looking for a double vodka on the rocks. She tells Dillon about her run in with Maxie. Then Kiki walks in and fills Morgan in on her visit with Denise and Franco. Meanwhile Dillon suggests to Valerie that she go on a date with him to prove she's not interested in Dante.

Meanwhile Lulu heads back to The Haunted Star and gives Laura a letter from Luke.

Back at the docks, Luke says good luck to Port Charles and walks off into the fog to catch a boat to nowhere!

End of show!

That's the end of the line for Luke Spencer, arguably the most iconic of all soap opera characters. I can't say his exit was very eventful. Honestly it was mostly boring and poorly written. Much like the Luke/Fluke storyline that dragged for the last year, Luke's final scenes were really much ado about nothing. I wasn't crazy about what Tony Geary had to say in his exit interview, but it does seem that Ron Carlivati went out of his way to write Luke's history into a giant pile of crap! 

Am I being too cynical? What do you think of Luke's exit?

Have a great night!

End of show!

So that's it for Lucky. That was pretty quick. I guess that's a wrap for Ethan and Holly too.

Have a great night!

P.S. In case you haven't heard, Anthony Geary gave an exit interview to TV Insider's Michael Logan. Read here - > Luke Out! All I have to say is that I won't miss Luke. I haven't cared about the character or felt that Tony showed much gusto in his portrayal of Luke for years. I think his lack of gratitude for Luke & Laura is just sad. I can understand being tired of a job after so many years, but no one forced you to stay. Like it or not that's the character that made you. It's classier to keep quiet and go live in Amsterdam in peace, in my opinion. What do you think?

I loved hearing Monica talk about her history with Alan and Jason today. It got me choked up and GH hasn't genuinely moved me in a long while! I loved GH so much in the 80's & 90's. I was just a kid myself, but I remember so much of the show's history. Not too mention the terrific Liz, Jake and Lucky scenes. I'll take more scenes like that any day. Good episode today!

Have a great night!
