The Tracy Quartermaine Lovefest

Recommended Posts

You know, aside from the fact that I've never liked any character GF has played, ever (soap, miniseries, movie-of-the-week), I can't stand that TG's Luke can't be free of that albatross. The poor guy's career has suffered terribly. Sure he's made money as Luke, but he's an actor who wasn't able to go very far because of the notoriety. On principle headlines like that make me want to puke - and that's before I start to tap into my dislike of the hype around that pairing. With any luck the "reunion" is a hello at Kelly's, and nothing else. TG always looks like he's got a stick up his ass when he has to work with GF as it is. Compare that to how natural it is with JE, and my dislike just explodes.

That's because GF can only play Laura types convincingly. She doesn't have the talent to make any other type of character remotely interesting. And since Laura is boring, well.....eh.She never changes, there are never any surprises-and you gotta know that gets on TG"s nerves. That he might be relegated to playing the same old scenes with the same old character after all these years.....I can't imagine it would make anyone want to rush to work.
I don't want Connie as Tracy's kid, I just want Dillon and Ned back full time.

Agreed. And she doesn't even play them well. It must be frustrating working with the best, then being potentially forced to be with the less-than.

I'd like Ned and Dillon back too, unfortunately the reality is both actors are employed elsewhere. I can't ever see them making Connie a Q, but I do like the dynamic between Connie and Tracy.

Of course! On both ends I want them back and I love the new girlfriends ;)

Wally Kurth is only recurring at DAYS. I'm pretty sure that if GH offered to put him on contract, he'd do it. He didn't have any qualms about doing recurring stints on GH while doing them on DAYS. There was one day last week where he was on both shows the same day.

Scott Clifton, however, is on contract at B&B and I find it unlikely he'll come back. I wouldn't mind a recast Dillon at all, though. Enough time has passed that it could be believable. We would just need another person who has great mother-son chemistry with JE.

WAHHT?!!???! IMPOSIBLE!!!

No one can top that first mother/son relationship with a recast! I'd die if there were recast forthat one of a kind ship

No, she's right - a recast is probably something worth looking at. We start with the reality that JE has chemistry with everyone that crosses her path, and move up from there.

IMO it wasn't even that SC had great mother/son chemistry with JE, it was the whole Spencermaine family just worked exceptionally well. It's right up there with the Jones, Scorpio and Q families as far as ensembles. Any combination was fabulous, and when the lot were together it was off the charts.

I'm not strong enough for that!

And I miss the days of 05 thru 07 (very early 08). I miss the dynamic that the families had back in the day. And speaking of Spencermaine's,Ethan was IMO,the (older) son (or daughter(again IMO,they should've had) that Luke and Tracy never had. He was the mix of both of them. That's just me though.

that was the beauty of Ethan - he could have been Luke/Tracy's without any problems in convincing anyone. I think they even made reference to that in one episode.

I just saw a spoiler that says something like:

2/20 - Anna tells Duke she and Luke are over..........i'm sure this is just in time for Laura to come back even though #AnaL is possibly the worst pairing in GH history!

I doubt AnnL is the worst pairing in GH history - it's not even the worst pairing in Luke's history - but I hope your conclusion is wrong. Even if some think it's "inevitable" (which I don't believe it has to be), it would be awful to see the end of possible story for Luke like that, 'cause you know if he's back with "his Angel", Luke is done. All they will have is Mr. Laura being played by TG again. Worst. Mistake. Possible. The 90's were horrible for Luke because of that.

Connie referred to Tracy as her BFF. I am really enjoying Connie and Tracy's relationship. wub.png

I know this might be unpopular around here, but the last couple times Luke and Tracy were onscreen together, I haven't been that excited. Of course it's always a pleasure when Tracy is onscreen, and I thought the small exchange regarding Edward's death was good, but everything else? Not so much. ph34r.png

Tracy's in the previews for Monday. Yay!

I love them, too. I was trying to think of a time when Tracy had a BFF to scheme with that was female and came up blank. Can anyone else think of one? It's cool that Tracy finally has a female friend. And I LOVE that the friendship is based on mutual kindness over a shared grief of sorts. It makes the connection more deep and legitimate.

TG has looked and sounded rough the past couple of days. Whatever that illness that had him out for so long was must have taken its toll. I agree that you can tell they've really toned back the closeness factor in Luke and Tracy's relationship, but I think that may be a personal decision by the actors because you can see JE reacting in the background on Luke's call to Anna (even before the overt "bony" crack). These two are pros enough that they can turn that chemistry on whenever they want to inject it into a scene no matter what dialogue they're given so I'm going with personal acting choice.

I'm one of the few here who doesn't have any issues with GF, but I've never been a fan of the Laura character. She's selfish, self-indulgent, sanctimonious and tries to hide behind a lot of righteousness more often than not. From her roots with David Hamilton, running out on Scotty (one of my favorite old-school GH characters), worrying Lesley to death, marrying her rapist, hiding a child from her husband and then sleeping with his enemy after they separated, to the (unfair) mess Guza turned her into, Laura is not a character I'm inclined to root for, mostly because (like with Sonny and Carly) she's never apologetic for her actions no matter what irreparable damage they've caused. That said, it's evident there is an extremely vocal fanbase out there that won't settle for anything less than a LnL HEA (and I use that term loosely since its been firmly established that Laura doesn't really make Luke all that happy). I'm pretty sure if they're bringing Laura back, it's to usher off Tony.

He was sick,lets give him a break and hope that this wont last long,or at all for that matter. Because if they aren't as close as they were when he came back (at Kelly's) ,like the usually are,I will overreact on my own terms...
