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.

It’s been almost a year since the last time that Ava Jerome (Maura West) saw her husband. She thought that she killed him and lived in fear ever since. With Austin’s help Ava was able to move and hide Nikolas Cassadine’s body. Although she and Austin were originally the only two [so she believed] who knew what she’d done, Ava eventually trusted Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) with her secret.

GH recaps highlight last February when Ava was met with the beginning of this ongoing nightmare. Nikolas eventually spiraled out of control. That’s when he barged in and threatened to disappear with Ava and Sonny’s (Maurice Benard) daughter Avery (Ava and Grace Scarola). We all know what happened next.

Ava Jerome (Maura West) and Nikolas Cassadine (future portrayer unknown) have been doing this little dance for quite some time. And I don’t mean just the recent lover’s quarrel which lead to attempted murder, a crazy cover story, and more lies and deception. Nik and Ava could be professionals on Dancing with the Stars for as much experience as they have dancing around their relationship.

General Hospital Recaps: Prior to his disappearance, Nikolas struggled with his relationships. His son Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Ava Jerome both needed more from Nik. Spencer needed him to step up as a father while Ava was sick and tired of Nikolas cozying up to his son’s girlfriend Esme Prince (Avery Kristen Pohl). Her last straw was when Nikolas showed up and was belligerent. He stormed through those Wyndemere doors and had the nerve to threaten Ava and Sonny’s daughter Avery (Ava and Grace Scarola). That’s when she whacked the Dark Prince over the head, and you know the rest.

General Hospital spoilers tease that Ava receives some promising information about selling Wyndemere. Her wishes just might come true as she wants to unload this monumental reminder of everything Cassadine. Ava learns that someone wants to buy Wyndemere but initially she can’t put her finger on who. Does she even care? Maybe not, as long as she gets it off of her hands. But, maybe so. I think it all depends on the buyer’s identity.

Nikolas Buys Wyndemere From Ava

While GH spoilers and rumors surrounding Nik’s Port Charles return circulate, it seems fitting that he’d want his home back. However, other GH rumors claim that Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) wants an ieve of that pie. But for now, let’s keep our focus on Nikolas Cassadine.

General Hospital Spoilers: Spencer Sees Esme’s Love For Ace

Spencer sees Esme’s love for Ace Trina’s jealous by Esme

Spencer sees Esme’s love for Ace. …Esme Prince (Avery Kristen Pohl) just experienced every mother’s worst nightmare. A horrific experience left Esme unconscious on the living room floor. When she woke, Esme opened her eyes to Laura Spencer (Genie Francis) bringing her back to consciousness. It was then that she remembered that Baby Ace was stolen.

This experience would traumatize anyone, especially a new mother that has amnesia. Although traumatic, her experience with Ace’s kidnapping showcased her true feelings as a mother. It’s obvious that Esme isn’t the same conniving and dangerous young woman she once was. Her love and devotion to her child displays a much softer, and even lovable side.

According to General Hospital spoilers, Spencer sees Esme’s love for Ace. The only Esme he knows is the one who conned him, the one who drove him and Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma) apart. Spencer sees Esme as his psycho ex-girlfriend who slept with his father. Also, she tortured Ava, and her family tree is quite frightening.

Now that Esme and Ace have been reunited, GH rumors hint that Spencer’s thoughts about taking Ace from Esme are conflicted. The more he sees Esme’s natural abilities as a responsible mother, the greater his doubts. He was so dead set on taking Ace from his mother, but now things may change.

Sonny helps Ava find Nikolas! Big problems require big solutions. So, it’s obvious why Ava goes to Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) in confidence.

General Hospital recaps recall the events that lead to Nikolas’s self destruction as well as the slow death of his marriage to Ava. Unfortunately, Nikolas Cassadine’s (Marcus Coloma/Adam Huss) life entered a whirlwind when his son Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) returned home with his girlfriend. Little did he know, Esme Prince (Avery Kristen Pohl) came to Port Charles with a lot more to unpack than her boarding school luggage.

Clearly, Nikolas’s poor life choices and the repercussions that follow began long before Spencer returned home with Esme in tow. In fact, Nik had already caused damage to his father/son relationship when he faked his own death. Upon his “resurrection,” Nikolas wasn’t necessarily welcomed with open arms by everyone he loves.

Sadly, Spencer’s plan to get back at his father went way out of left field thanks to Esme. Consequently, Spencer and his father didn’t get a chance to mend their relationship through a string of ill-fated events. Ultimately, Nikolas and Spencer became more like enemies instead of reconciling. Needless to say, Nikolas’s downward spiral launched when Esme’s father, Ryan Chamberlain set his plan for Ava and Nikolas in motion. Fast forward to the present, Nikolas spun so out if control that he ended up threatening to kidnap Ava’s daughter… and we all know the rest.

According to recent General Hospital spoilers and rumors, Ava turns to Sonny in confidence. Currently, Austin is the only one who shares her secret.

General Hospital Spoilers: Elizabeth Fears Esme’s Memory Returning, Will Esme Remember Calling Her Baby, “Ace”?

Esme remembers baby Ace

Baby Ace triggers Esme. …Esme Prince (Avery Kristen Pohl) gave birth to a baby boy. Young woman’s super sudsy soap opera birth is unconventional yet typical. Accordingly, Esme’s, her baby, and all who surround them lead the next front running storyline.

General Hospital recaps recall Elizabeth Webber’s (Rebecca Herbst) role in Nikolas Cassadine’s (Marcus Coloma) devious game. As history tells it, the people of Port Charles recognize Elizabeth and Nikolas’s friendship for representing loyalty and strength. Always coming to each other’s rescue, Liz and Nik knew they could always depend on one another. And due to Elizabeth’s unwavering loyalty to Nikolas, she was roped in to help him keep Esmé captive. During that time, Nurse Webber tended to Esme’s prenatal needs.

Although the situation wasn’t exactly optimal, the prenatal care that Esme received from Elizabeth was genuine. After a few surprisingly effective discussions with her Nurse, Esme displayed a real bond with her unborn baby boy. As a result, the captured accused (of the hook killings) started calling the baby, “Ace.”

According to General Hospital spoilers, insight from a recent interview reveals that soon, all is forgiven for the boarding school seductress. Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson’s interview with Avery Pohl’s alluded to her character’s rebirth. It seems Esme’s amnesia is real by the way she so naturally reacts to Heather and Ryan’s lunacy. That being said, she remembers nothing about her past; now even her pregnancy as a prisoner in Wyndemere. However, recent General Hospital rumors speculate that perhaps baby Ace triggers his mom, sparking her memory. Perhaps she’ll instinctually call him, “Ace,” simply by admiring her newborn. unfortunately for Liz, if Esmé remembers calling her child ace, she just might remember everything.

As General Hospital recaps recall, Ryan’s obsession with Ava had her looking over her shoulder for years. After all, he is the reason her marriage to Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma/Adam Huss) is over. Now that he’s truly gone, she can rest assured that Ryan won’t harm her or anyone she loves again.

Is Nikolas really dead

Is Nikolas really dead? It feels wrong for the writers to have killed off such an iconic character, let alone a staple in one of the main General Hospital families. Stavros, Helena, and the other elder’s legacy lives on in the younger Cassadines. Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma) should live on to carry that legacy.

That being said, there is nothing Uncle Victor won’t do to get what he wants.

Observant General Hospital fans vocalized their dislike for Nik’s new persobality. Surely, Nikolas was always “The Dark Prince,” but, he was never this stupid; or sloppy.

One mess up after another, and Victor couldn’t take any more of his nephew’s boneheaded moves. Because of this, General Hospital rumors began, claiming the Nikolas Cassadine we see is an imposter. Is it possible that Victor swapped his nephew out for an imposter weeks ago?! Is the Nikolas who died even the real Nikolas?!
