According to a tweet from his on-screen grandmother, Genie Francis (Laura), fan favorite scene-stealer Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer) is making a return to GH.  While we don’t know if its a short return, or an appearance. or a lengthier stay, it’s always great when Spencer Cassadine shakes up the canvas.

Francis went public with the intel with her tweet that said: “@NicolasJBechtel A little bird told me I might be seeing u soon, well actually a big bird, a really big bird…”

Bechtel had been busy appearingon the Disney Channel series, Stuck in the Middle playing the role of Lewie Diaz, while away from Port Charles.  When we last heard of Spencer, grandma Laura had him sent away to boarding school in Europe following the “death” of his father, Nikolas (Tyler Christopher and last played by Nick Stabile).

Excited to know a Nicolas Bechtel sighting is on its way to your TV screens? Comment below!

      Nicolas has been oustanding as “Lewie”. I’ve caught a few eps with the kids.
      His acting really stands out. Nicolas is a true performer.

        @CeeCee….Yes, Nicolas is undoubtedly a true performer, but I’m sorry, his Spencer is an insufferable little twerp!

    So happy to hear this! I miss this little big ball of fire. I hope this means the Nicolas isn’t far behind. Anyway, screen time with Spencer’s wise-cracking is always a delight.

    Happy to see Spencer back. If only Britt would come back with him.

      Personally, I’d love to see Britt come back all by her lonesome…or btter yet, with “Daddy Faison” in tow! Perhaps Liesl has a birthday coming up and could do with a special surprise visit???

      • Celia

        March 9, 2017 at 5:48 pm

        Oh, yes, Shay! That would be a dream come true….Britt and my hilarious Faison.

      • Shay

        March 10, 2017 at 7:49 am

        Tell me about it, CeeCeeGirl…Love that Britt, she has “true grit,” and Faison, well, is FAISON!!! Need I say more???? LOL…

    GOOD! He’s been missed. Now bring back his father, Nikolas Cassadine–he also has been missed.

      Hi Rhonda That’s my favorite sisters name . I call her Rhonda-RIFIC !

      Where is the actor who played Nicholas? And the great actor who portrayed him? I thought he was leaving for a short term ?

    March 8, 2017 at 6:03 pm

    Glad he’s returning. I like the little guy, he has spunk, is funny and can stir things up. Let’s hope he’s worked into a significant plot, not just in the background.

    March 8, 2017 at 6:04 pm

    Awesome! Now, please come back Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) and also Kelly Thiebaud (Britt).

      I read Tyler made a statement a few days ago that he’s definitely not coming back and is moving to Nashville.

    Bring back Tyler too!!!!!

    most likely-
    Spenser knows his dad Nikolas is alive and has been in contact or at times with Nikolas..

    Perfect timing….GH is very exciting right now….this news makes it even better.

    LOVE this kid! Adorable and talented; hope he returns as many times as his schedule allows.

    I want to see little Nick take Charlotte under his wing. She is such a cutey and really has done a good job. I thought I read somewhere that this was her first acting job? Those two would be adorable. Oh, and Spencer will match wits with Valentine, for sure!

    • Celia

      March 9, 2017 at 5:54 pm

      I like that, Timmmy. I can see Charlotte and Spencer forming a friendship.
      I just wonder where Spencer will be living and with whom? With Lulu?
      He is the rightful heir of Wyndemere, as far as I am concerned. Nina and Valentin just don’t belong there.

      • rebecca1

        March 10, 2017 at 4:27 am

        I don’t think he’s coming back full time, CeeCee. But, if he did, until and if a recast Nicolas comes back, he’d probably live with Lulu or Laura.

      • Timmm

        March 10, 2017 at 5:24 am

        Spencer will probably live in grandma Laura’s car with her!

      • Shay

        March 10, 2017 at 7:47 am

        Probably Laura….if she ever makes it out of that car trunk….perhaps Spencer could join here there!

    So happy to hear this….I know he will bring some life back to GH…the show NEEDS him!

    Laura needs a house so Spencer has a place to stay. No reason she needs to continue couch surfing

GH Nurses’ Ball 2018 Conclusion: Anna Learns Henrik Is Her Son, Maxie Has Her Son, Ava Wows, Mike & Sonny Duet!

In the most moving and exciting episode of this 2018 GH Nurses’ Ball, all roads lead to the truth about Henrik and how he is really living his life as none other than Peter August (Wes Ramsey).  First, Robert (Tristan Rogers) who has punched out by Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) on stage drags him outside of the ballroom for his part in the cover[up.  Robert is worried about Anna’s (Finola Hughes) safety. Nina (Michelle Stafford) confronts her husband about how long he’s known who Henrik is.  She later figures out why he has been trying to whisk her and Charlotte out of the country.


Onstage Mike (Max Gail) takes a mic, and makes a moment of saying he has Alzheimer’s and then launches into the song he remembers,“The Summer Wind.” As he sings, he imagines being accompanied by a big band as he proceeds to deliver a showstopper.  Suddenly, in reality, Mike is lost and disoriented … scared he stares around at the audience.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) gets up to the stage to help his dad by cluing him into the lyrics.  Sonny sings with Mike and gets him through the song.  They receive a standing ovation.

Ava (Maura West) who is preparing to perform her number comes across a moment between Kiki (Hayley Erin) and Griffin (Matt Cohen) backstage where they are in a hug.  Little does Ms. Jerome know that Griffin was consoling Kiki after her lewd run-in with Dr. Bensch (James DePaiva).   Then it is Maura West, who truly brings down the house for this year’s ball with her Ava’s rendition of “You Don’t Own Me.”  That tune was certainly a nod to all those that Ava feels have wronged her.  Yup! Sonny, Griffin and Kiki we think are some on her list!   Dressed in a white pant suit and accompanied by a bevy of male dancers, West knocked the interpretation of the song out of the park, to make it work for her character and the Nurses’ Ball.


Elsewhere, Maxie (Kristen Storms) has gone into labor, and Peter is right there safely delivering her baby boy. Maxie is taken by paramedics to the hospital, while Peter calls Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) at Maxie’s urging to let him know what happened.  Spinelli has just found out, through Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) that Peter is Henrick!

Anna is walking into a trap on the pier as she waits for Henrick. When he appears, he has no idea that Anna is his mother, and thinks it’s all been a set-up.  He points a gun to eliminate her once and for all, but Anna says she has something to tell him.

The Nurses’ Ball concludes with a touching finale of “Champion” featuring: Epiphany (Sonya Eddy), Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Amy (Risa Dorken) and the other nurses.

So, what did you think of the final episode of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2018?  What did you think of the musical performances? Do you think Maxie’s baby will be OK? Will Anna be able to tell Henrik that she is his mom? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

He expressed: “Welcome to the world, little one …. it’s a scary place sometimes, and i so wish i could have been there to show you all the good stuff. Your mother loves you,and will take care of you and teach you …. watch out for her her for me will ya?”

Aaawww.  So many GH fans have been touched by the gesture, and how nice it is that it makes the whole journey and end of Nathan’s West story heartbreaking and bittersweet.
