General Hospital Update Tuesday 4/20/99 by Suzanne Lanoue
Sonny tells Bobbie he'll have his driver take her and Liz home. Everyone is still in
shock. Mike comes by and asks Jason's what's going on. Jason doesn't say much, as usual.
Taggert asks Sonny to move so he can talk to Liz. He asks her for Lucky's necklace back
(for forensics), but she refuses. Taggert questions her about the subway token on the
necklace so she explains, calmer. He promises he'll just borrow it and bring it back
safely. She keeps saying, "It's Lucky's". Bobbie helps out so finally Liz gives
it to him. He also asks her the last time she saw lucky. She tells him about having dinner
with Lucky and talking to him on the phone. He asks her to call him if she thinks of
anything. Taggert then tells Sonny he wants to question him and Jason at the police
station. He says quietly, "You disappear, and I will never stop looking for
Bobbie talks to Liz, trying to console her. She talks about losing BJ. "He knew you
loved him", she assures Liz. Audrey comes in and hugs Liz, who looks drained. Liz
suddenly seems to be holding back everything she's feeling; she goes to put on tea. Bobbie
fills Audrey in but she breaks down crying herself so Audrey comforts her. Audrey asks
about Luke, Laura, and Jerry. She suggests Bobbie call him and take care of herself now.
Audrey talks about how wonderful Lucky was. Bobbie suggests Audrey call Liz's family for
her. After some more tears, Bobbie leaves. Liz comes out with a tray for tea, wondering
where she went. Liz tries to keep it together but her hands shake when she pours tea.
Later, Audrey finds Liz sitting out on the porch, just staring, so she asks her to come
Luke tells Laura about how Lucky died. They are both red-faced and crying; she keeps
screaming and he holds her. She asks if he's sure, if Luke saw him. Luke says he didn't
see him and he makes her sit down. She makes gross, awful sounds while she cries. She
keeps asking him questions and finally realizes it was in Jason's garage so it might have
been something to do with Moreno. She asks him a bunch of questions he can't answer but he
promises to find out. He says he wants to take her home and then go to the morgue (to make
sure if it's him or not). She insists on going with him.
There's a newsbreak for Littleton and then we see Luke and Laura talking to Taggert. He
doesn't want them to see the charred remains but Luke says they "need to look".
Luke asks Laura to let him do it for them so she stays in the outer room. Taggert takes
Luke in and the morgue guy opens the box and lifts the sheet. Luke can't look long; he
covers it back up quickly. Laura comes in and wants to see, but Luke says "No!".
She begs pitifully so he lets her. She half-faints and Luke catches her. They walk out;
Laura seems to be throwing up. Sonny and Jason are just walking in then. Laura looks up
and sees Sonny. She growls at him, "You-murderer!" with a terrible look of
hatred and disgust on her face. She tears into him, and into Jason, for breaking their
promise to keep her family safe. Luke tries to get her to stop but then she turns on him.
"You started all of this...you taught him to trust people like this!" and she
accuses him of being responsible for the fact that Lucky never came home. Luke coldly says
that he never came home because there was no home to return to. She slaps him and Taggert
takes her out. Luke just nods and walks out, leaving Jason and Sonny standing there.
Laura goes home and sees Nikolas; she whispers, "It's true" and puts her hand
gently on his face. He tells her that he kept the news from Lulu so far and explains about
Luke being there. He makes her sit down and she begs him to stay with her. She assures him
that Lucky "will stay with" him always. Nikolas breaks down, saying how they
just had dinner together. She cries some more, prays to God, and Nikolas holds her,
According to the flashbacks the next day, Laura also told Lesley Lu that Lucky went to
Meanwhile, Luke wanders to Kelly's and remembers when he last saw Lucky and Liz together.
He can barely bring himself to go in the place. He sits down and really starts to cry. A
very sad song plays in the background. Luke remembers some pleasant times they had
together. Bobbie finds him there, sitting in the dark, so she goes over to hug him while
he cries a whole lot more.
