Well, well, well, if it isn’t dear old dad. Once again, Spencer Cassadine’s father mastered his disappearing act. The way Spencer sees it, Nikolas Cassadine (Adam Huss) chooses himself over his son over and over again.

Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) is stuck between a rock and a hard place. He’s tangled in Esme and Nikolas’s web of deception and he doesn’t want his little brother to suffer. He knows that he must make the best decision for Ace, but when your two choices are Esme or Nikolas, it makes things difficult. How is Spencer supposed to choose between Ace’s parents? One is Spencer’s own father and the other is his semi-reformed, psycho ex-girlfriend.

Spencer Chooses Between Esme and Nikolas

Prior to Esme’s fall from the parapet, there’s no way in Hell that Spencer would have chosen to help his ex fight for her son. Retrospectively, Spencer despised Esme for the things she’d done. All the lies, the crimes, and the people she’s hurt were never going to get past Spencer. Then, his baby brother was born and Spencer saw a different side of Esme. The amnesia allowed the young mother to focus on her son instead of seeking revenge. But now that her memories have returned, Esme herself is torn between her old self and her new self.
