I Don't Know Which Is Worse, Killing Off Legacy Characters or...This
I'm not saying that I WANT Luke Spencer to be killed off and then come back as a sassy, tracksuit wearing ghost or raccoon-eyed doppelganger, I just...I really want Tony Geary to take one of his six month long sabbaticals and hightail it the hell out of Port Charles before I have to join a mob of angry Luke haters and do whatever it is that an angry mob member does (I feel like pitchforks and a catchy Alan Menken penned tune are involved. Or should be!).
Because, really, hating Luke Spencer is not something I want to do and yet...I HATE LUKE SPENCER.
My irritation with him has been growing for the past few months, because I am over the whole badass, ne'er-do-well shtick, but today it crossed the line to hatred. I officially hate Luke Spencer. It makes me sad. But do you blame me? He was all "Remember when Helena faked Lucky's death? LOL! She is a genius!"
Luke: Emphasis on crazy. We have this sick, psychosexual relationship that feeds on titillation, torture, scorpions, and piano wire.
Lucky: Helena kidnapped me. She made everybody believe that I was dead.
Luke: Yeah, she's a very creative lunatic. You have to admire her imagination.
YES! Admirable is exactly the word I was looking for. The myriad ways in which Helena wreaked havoc on the Spencer are just so imaginative and whimsical! Who wants to take a look back at those days of whimsy and give Helena a round of applause for her awesome imagination?!
And then was Lucky was upset about how his father basically wrote off the kidnapping, faked death and brainwashing of his son as a hilarious prank, Luke and Ethan had the nerve to be miffed.
Ethan: That guy never gives you a break.
Luke: We're going through a rough patch, Lucky and I.
Ethan: Why do you put up with this?
Remind me again why we are supposed to have feelings for Ethan besides blistering hatred? And after you remind me of that, remind me why we watch this show...
