GH Spoilers Star In Pivotal Role
As Cameron Webber and Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy) aged, fans wondered why Spencer didn’t catch up with them but last year he did when he returned from boarding school and kept himself hidden for a while. After a chance meeting with Trina, he fell for her and told her his name was Victor and she was later shocked to learn he was the infamous Spencer Cassadine — and that he had a crazy girlfriend named Esme Prince (Avery Kristen Pohl).

Spencer was also revealed to be the man stalking Ava Jerome (Maura West) in an effort to break up her marriage to his father, Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma). Currently, Spencer is in love with Trina but hasn’t admitted it to her. He also knows how insane Esme really is but has yet to catch her as the person who made a sex tape of Joss and Cam, released it on the Internet, and set up Trina to take the fall. Wait until he also finds out that Esme seduced her father. The fireworks there will definitely be worth watching. Plus, there’s also that Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) secret. Stay tuned to General Hospital weekdays to see how this story plays out.
