General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma) could be quite wrong about his scheming son’s plans. Nikolas doesn’t think Spencer Cassadine (last played by Nicolas Bechtel) will be coming home anytime soon based on Spencer’s email and disdain for his father’s marriage.
However, there’s been way too much Spencer talk at this point. It seems like a done deal that Spencer is returning in some form – most likely as a slightly aged recast since there have been mentions of Spencer graduating soon like the other teens on canvas.
We should remember that someone has been sending Ava threatening messages and gifts. That person will have to be revealed down the road – and it looks like Spencer’s the one who’s been trying to scare Ava away.
Now that Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) has mentioned Spencer, that provides another dangerous angle for GH writers to work. Cyrus brought up how he saw himself in Spencer and admitted to keeping tabs on him, which left Nikolas rattled.
Nikolas quickly insisted that Spencer was outside the realm of Cyrus’ observation, but General Hospital spoilers say that’s not up to Nikolas at this point! That’s especially true now that Nikolas is doing Uncle Cyrus’ bidding.
Cyrus knows his threats against the people Nikolas loves work due to the whole situation with Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn).
Cyrus was arguably making a veiled threat against Spencer to get a reaction out of Nikolas, but we’d say he might go for a different strategy than kidnapping Spencer or putting him in harm’s way.
Since Cyrus views Spencer as someone who’s got a sinister, manipulative side like him, this villain would be much better off turning Spencer into his protégé.
It’s possible Cyrus has done it already since General Hospital fans don’t know the extent of what Spencer has been up to off screen. Regardless, Spencer will likely make an appearance at Nikolas and Ava Jerome Cassadine’s (Maura West) upcoming vow renewal.
Once Spencer gets back in the mix, you can bet Cyrus will try to take Spencer under his wing if he hasn’t already.
Cyrus could be playing a dangerous game since there’s nothing Nikolas wouldn’t do for his son. Targeting Spencer and pulling him into such a twisted web could raise the stakes like never before.
Nikolas may find some strategy to serve as a counterattack and hopefully break Spencer free at some point.
Whatever the case, General Hospital spoilers say the show’s laid the groundwork for a Spencer and Nikolas alliance.
That’s sure to make matters worse when it comes to Cyrus’ attempt to bond with Laura Collins (Genie Francis), but Cyrus will at least have Spencer as a pawn and family member to control.
Nikolas may work to stop Spencer’s villainous path, but he should be in for a major battle with Cyrus!
