General Hospital: Catching up with already addicting Lucas Jones gay storyline featuring terrific Ryan Carnes!
I’ve been so Days of Our Lives centric that I did not realize General Hospital’s gay storyline involving Lucas Jones (Ryan Carnes) had been taking off in recent weeks.
I think producers must be buoyed by improved ratings and can see that Days is thriving with a gay storyline. How far we’ve come from when One Life to Live jettisoned all their gay characters abruptly a few years back and still ended up being canceled.
Anyway, let’s hope Days is inspired by General because what I have seen so far with Lucas is far better than what has been going on in Salem with Will and Sonny lately. It just feels edgier and more realistic.
I caught up on all the scenes I could find and I think they are all here. I plan to keep up now and post them for you as soon as they become available.
Ryan, best known previously for Desperate Housewives and the first Eating Out movie, is no longer blond and he gets to show some real acting chops. He. Is. Terrific.
His scenes with his adoptive mom and his bio dad are powerful and he’s so sexy in his scenes with Parry Shen (Brad). Brad is finding himself torn between newcomer Lucas and Felix, a man he’s had feelings for for a long time. Felix is played by the terrific Marc Samuel who I know through doing interviews for his starring role in Hot Guys With Guns.
I’m very excited to see where this triangle goes and major kudos to Ryan Carnes for bringing his A-game to General Hospital and giving me a very good reason to watch!
