GH News and Spoilers: Do The Writers Need A Class On Technology Since The Early 2000s? Here’s Why What Portia Did Would Never Fly Today

Portia lies to Trina

Portia lies to Trina! …Portia Robinson (Brook Kerr) has gone from a caring and protective mother, to a controlling, manipulative, liar, even to her precious daughter. Trina and Portia’s relationship has seen better days, but they’ve yet to see the worst!

According to recent GH spoilers and rumors Portia’s actions eventually come back to bite her. Odds are, she pushes Trina away to the point of no return. Potentially, they could become estranged for the foreseeable future. It’s no surprise that Portia is sticking with her plan to drive Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Trina Robinson (Tabyana Ali) apart. However, it’s the way she’s going about it that comes as a surprise.

Until these latest scenes between Portia and Spencer at Portia’s home, she’s mainly manipulated Esme. Now, Portia’s taken things to an unrealistic level. According to GH recaps, Portia told Spencer his help wasn’t necessary and dismissed him from her home. Then, Trina walks down and asks where he sent. That’s when Portia told her daughter that Spencer took off, brushing it off as one of his character flaws.

General Hospital spoilers reveal, Portia lies to Trina in the worst way. Call me crazy but, does anyone else find this strange? Especially in this day and age when text messaging is prevalent. Anyone whose man just up and left would text that man ASAP, and ask, “why’d you dip?” Portia would never get away with this lie in real life because technology doesn’t allow for this level of stupidity. Honestly, there’s no way in Hell that his abrupt exit wouldn’t be addressed at some point. Thus, outing Portia. Of course, this is Port Charles. The fictional NY city is located in Soap Opera Land, where they pop up unannounced on your doorstep to “talk,” because smartphones and texting doesn’t exist.
