    Holly met Luke on a camping trip and they became involved, but it was later revealed it was a set up as part of an oil scam to rob the people of Port Charles. Holly was kidnapped and even though Luke didn’t trust her, he teamed up with Robert Scorpio to find her. After she was rescued, Luke and Holly broke up and Luke left town. It was believed Luke died in an avalanche and a pregnant Holly married Robert.

    She had a miscarriage and Luke returned to town. Holly and Robert stayed together as they were now in love, but then Robert’s first wife, Anna Devane showed up. After much drama, Holly left for Australia and Robert followed shortly afterwards. Robert returned some time later and announced that Holly was killed in a plane crash. The truth was that she was actually in a coma due to a car accident. However, during the time she was presumed dead, Robert and Anna reunited and remarried.

    Holly decided to stay away from Robert, but when Anna was kidnapped, Robert drew up papers to end his marriage to Holly before he took off in search of his other wife. When Robert and Anna were presumed dead, Holly tore up the divorce papers and then helped Mac take care of Robert and Anna’s daughter Robin.

    In 2006, Holly returned to Port Charles with the antidote to the encephalitis strain that infected the town, but demanded money in exchange for it. She popped up again later that year to lead Luke on a wild goose chase.

    Ethan Lovett came to town in 2009 and Luke became suspicious that he was his son with Holly. He tried to track Holly down but to no avail. However, Holly surprised Luke by showing up on the Haunted Star. She eventually reveled that Ethan was Luke's son.

    Holly returned in 2012 when Luke called her for help with Ethan, who had fallen for Cassandra. Luke felt she was a con woman and believed Holly would have some insight. Cassandra turned out to be Helena's daughter, who Helena had killed.

    Thursday, July 02 2015: GH Recap: Luke discovers Ethan standing on a bomb

    Up in Canada, Holly and Laura scout the grounds while Luke heads into the warehouse. There he finds Ethan just standing in the middle of the room. Ethan warns him not to come any closer as he’s standing on a bomb. He says he’s been there for sixteen some hours and is getting woozy, so he tells his dad that Lucky is alive and managed to escape. Ethan is about to pass out and warns Luke to go, but Luke decides to disarm the bomb. Ethan feels he should go help Lucky, who could be injured, but Luke says he will save Ethan or die trying. Elsewhere, the guard offers to drive Lulu and Dillon to the hospital, so Lulu pretends to go into labor to avoid getting in the van. Unfortunately their scheme to distract the guard is revealed when her hay bundle baby falls to the ground. The other guard, who was knocked out by Holly and left behind, has come to and arrived. He grabs Lulu from behind and threatens to break her neck. Lulu elbows him to break free, and Dillon fights the other guy. They leave the men unconscious and head back to find Luke and the others. After they leave, one of the guards wakes up and makes a call. Back at the warehouse, Luke does what he can to disarm the bomb. Luke takes Ethan’s hand and pushes him off the bomb, which doesn’t explode. Before they can leave, the guards arrive with Lulu, Dillon, Laura and Holly at gunpoint. Luke demands to see their boss. Their boss walks in as Luke and Laura gasp in disbelief.
