GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nikolas & Spencer’s Reunion Leaves Ava Attempting To Bring Peace: What Did You Think Of The Key Scenes?

Courtesy/ABC

The long-awaited and highly-anticipated reunion of Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and his son, Spencer aired on Monday’s episode of General Hospital.  And it reminded us all how much we love Nicolas Bechtel as the young Cassadine.

While Ava (Maura West) first talks with Spencer in order to prepare him for his father’s appearance and that he is alive; when Nikolas shows up and receives a hug from Spencer, it appeared all might be OK between them, but how could it be? Nikolas let his son believe he was dead for over three years!

Next, Spencer lays into his father for choosing claiming the Cassadine fortune and keeping hidden over telling him that he was alive; leaving Spencer alone with two broken legs, in a boarding school in Europe, and grief-stricken.

The best scenes were actually shared by Maura West and Bechtel, when Ava tries to reason with the disappointed and disillusioned young man over his father’s return, which has a double meaning for her.  She says, “The person you love most in the world just came back to you. That makes you the luckiest boy on the planet. Can’t you see that?”  For Ava, she is obviously drawing a parallel to her losing her daughter, Kiki and wishing she was alive.

Kudos to the actors in these scenes.  Watch them below.

Then, let us know what you thought of Spencer finding out that Nikolas was alive via the comment section below.

All three actors gave fantastic performances, but Maura West& Nicolas Bechtel were phenomenal.

It was great to see Spencer again, played by the same actor and not a SORAS’d version of the role. But I kept thinking to myself how great these scenes would have been if Tyler Christopher had returned as Nikolas. He and Nicholas Bechtel had amazing father/son chemistry (just like Jason Thompson and Brooklyn Rae Silzer had fantastic father/daughter chemistry) and it’s one of the things I miss most with this story. I like Marcus Coloma as an actor and he fits the role well, but it’s been very difficult to like this version of Nikolas since all he does… Read more »

Well said, Jimmy, and I agree completely. Nikolas has some MAJOR fences to mend and poor Marcus Coloma (whom I like very much) has done enough lip-pursing for the next year. Lighten up, Niko!

Not for nothing but that was too long to keep the character off the canvas.

Let Marcus Coloma steal the show as always. Hope he is here for a long time… with Brit in tow to help him with his revenge !

Thank you, Brian! I’d love to have Britt back, sparring with Liesl and… well, everyone. She and Spencer were great together. Then we can also bring back Drew, Hayden, Kim, and dump Gladys, Brando, and Peter the Prop. And how about something fun for Molly and Kristina? Anything but ANOTHER Sonny/Carly/JaSam concoction!

Scenes were ok…taking time to get used to NuNik…i wish Ava wasnt a killer…at least lets learn she killed Connie years ago because her demented sister used some mind control…lets have Ava and Julian more like the down to earth old fashion villains like Alexandra and her bro Alan on Guilding Light..soaps have stumbled away from being soaps..especially Days and GH but both remain ok entertainment…Days jumping ahead and then going back to tell the story was a mistake now..its like getting all spoilers at once and knowing the outcome before we actually know the story!!!

I agree, Jimh. The old “villains” didn’t cross certain lines, so we could still love them. Every time I start to root for Ava (mostly because Maura West is so great), I remind myself how bad she’s been. The evil deeds weren’t as evil in the old days. I still miss Alexandra Spaulding and now, sadly, will miss the late, great Marj Dusay as well.

Wonderful to have Nicolas back as Spencer! He stood toe to toe with the great Maura West. I hope that in time, he and Marcus Coloma will share on-air chemistry as son and father. I’m still waiting to care about this version of the Prince.

Spencer has every right to be angry. Nicholas did choose the Casadine fortune over his child and the rest of his family. It wasn’t right to let them grieve for 3 years.

I prefer Tyler, even Nick Stable, but I’ll give Marcus Coloma credit where credit is due.

Mr. Coloma is hitting all the right notes with Gene, Maura, Nancy and the most essential to Nikolas, Bechtel’s Spencer. Marcus was thrown front and center and has literally cranked out lemonade.

He’s definitely making Nikolas his own while staying true to essence of character.

Maura is bringing the best out of Mr. Coloma and in a sense, Nikolas’s next chapter of his return.

Kudos GH, this is a recast that’s working!

I used to find Spencer very annoying, but Nicholas Bechtel has grown into a fine young actor. Bravo.

Doesn’t anyone, including the writers, remember that Spencer knew about his father’s fake death plot, and that they were communicating with each other until Laura took the cell away from Spencer?

That was his first faked death. When Tyler Christopher was still around and he framed Drew (who then was supposed to be Jason) for throwing him out the window the first time.

Spencer wasn’t in on this plot, because it wasn’t initially planned by Nikolas.
