GENERAL HOSPITAL: Spencer Heads to Pentonville as Trina is Too Late to Say Goodbye


General Hospital is truly building up the star-crossed romance of Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Trina Robinson (Tabyana Ali), and the show knows that ‘Sprina’ has become a very buzzy duo on social media.

So, to prolong our agony, just when you think maybe, just maybe, Trina will have her moment of clarity and run into the arms of Spencer before he heads to prison, the ABC daytime drama series leaves us with a heartbreaking cliffhanger on Friday’s episode.  Now the question becomes, how will Trina, Spencer, and Rory (Michael Blake Kruse) all react to the circumstances?  This week’s GH may give us some clues as to what’s to come.

In case you missed it, while visiting Ava (Maura West) in the hospital, and finding out from Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) that his wife won’t see him, Trina asks Ava what’s up between them.  Ava says she would rather not go into any details.  She then changes the subject and asks about Trina’s party, where Trina reveals an unexpected guest showed up.  Ava, guesses correctly that it was Spencer. Trina goes on to tell her that Spencer wrote her a letter and then he took it back, leaving Trina all confused.

However, Ava finally comes forward and tells Trina she deserves to know the truth. Ava relates that Spencer only stayed with Esme (Avery Pohl) to prove Trina’s innocence and tells Trina, Spencer has been in to to her for a very long time, and that anyone with two eyes could see that! Just then, Trina realizes that had to be what was in the letter!  Trina reveals that Nikolas is at the PCPD saying goodbye to Spencer, and asks Ava, if she thinks she should go see Spencer.

Ava tells Trina that she has to make this decision on her own, but to think about what she needs,  and gives her the best words of wisdom –  whoever she chooses needs to be worthy of her and act in her best interest.  That makes Trina run off to Pentonville hoping to see Spencer.

Meanwhile, just as a soapy drama would have it, Jordan (Tanisha Harper) reveals to Rory, that he needs to be the officer to process Spencer’s transfer to Pentonville all the while maintaining a level of professionalism.

Next, Rory comes face-to-face with Spencer in the PCPD interrogation room and tells him to put all of his belongings into an envelope and says his contact is going to try and get Spencer a job at the prison library. Spencer thanks Rory, but firmly tells him he does not need or want his help.

Just before he makes his exit, Rory tells Spencer that when he saw him and Trina and her party he felt things were left unfinished between them, but Spencer reassures Rory he has nothing to worry about, as he and Trina are both moving on with their lives.  Just then, Rory snaps back that he isn’t worried, he just doesn’t want Spencer haunting them while he is in prison.

When the prison transport arrives, Rory lets Spencer know and that it’s time for him to say goodbye. When Spencer enters the main room at the police station, he looks around devastated that Trina is not there.

Later, Trina is running into the PCPD as she realizes she is too late to say goodbye to Spencer, and Rory confirms that he is already gone off to Pentonville.  Rory witnesses Trina’s angst over Spencer.  Finally, we cut to a moment with Spencer in his new temporary home – a solitary cell at Pentonville.

What did you think about Friday’s cliffhanger on GH, with Spencer and Trina not able to have a goodbye? Do you think Rory will be up to no good and keep Spencer at bay from his relationship with Trina?  Do you think GH has the making of a powerful supercouple with ‘Sprina’, that could have legs for years to come?

Hell yes sprina is it

I think Rory hooked Ava. Any new soap character who is that nice, but not connected to a major family, just has to be a baddie!!

I believe Sprina is about to end before they’ve begun.

I really like new Trina with Rorie. All the tension between Spencer and Trina, was with original Trina.

I agree, Brian. It was a good move switching Rory into Trina’s guy. Something about Spencer and nuTrina just doesn’t click for me.

Then why is GH still invested in this Sprina love story?

I agree.

It was an adjustment period but I have grown to love the new Trina and Spencer together. I like her with Rory also but need more info about him.

I can’t believe ANYONE could think Nikolas hooked Ava. He would NEVER risk breaking a nail or a sweat, let alone messing up those carefully placed bangs. Thinking out of the ballpark, I won’t exclude Miss Elizabeth from the suspects list. A blackout could be the perfect defense against an attempted murder charge.

I love Sprina! They brought me back to GH after a hiatus. I can’t wait to see the next chapter!

Well, Spencer is in Pentonville. Wonder if we’ll see him meet up with Cyrus? Laura will be able to visit two of her relatives at the same time.

I’m ready for Trina and Spencer to FINALLY be together. They need to get their shot. Did Spencer start out wrong, yes, but since then he has truly or at least tried to have his best intentions with her. He truly has real feelings for her. I want them to have a story. I think Rory is hiding a very troubled family past. His background is too much of a mystery. I don’t think he hurt Ava or Brando, I still think Esma and Ryan are guilty in some way shape or form, but I do think Rory is hiding something. I think it will come down to a love triangle. Trina will have to make a decision and she will not know who she wants, but her heart will really be with Spencer after she really sits and thinks about it. I think then maybe Rory will become obsessed with her. Maybe Trina will lose her V-card to Rory and that’s when he becomes obsessed with her OR Spencer gets out and she loses her V-card to him and that’s when Rory snaps and becomes obsessed with Trina after she tries to break it off to be with Spencer. Either way, I believe she will ultimately choose Spence and that’s when the real drama will start. I just wish it will start already.

GH’s Adam J. Harrington on Being a Recast John “Jagger” Cates: “There is No Way I Can Even Touch What Antonio Sabato Jr. Did With the Role in the Past … If They Are Going My Way They Were Going to Take This in a Different Direction”

General Hospital fans were recently in for a shock when a new man arrived in Port Charles who went by the name of John Cates. As it turns out John Cates used to go by the nickname of “Jagger” and had lived in the town many years ago.

That’s because actor Adam Harrington was recast in the role of FBI Cates. The part was originally made soap-famous in the 90’s by Antonio Sabato Jr. “Jagger” appeared on the ABC daytime drama series from 1992-1994 and then in its spinoff GH: Night Shift in 2008 before the character left Port Charles with his young autistic son. “Jagger” was also the older brother to the late Stone Cates (Michael Sutton).

Now in 2024, GH has brought the character back and Adam J. Harrington is on contract with the series. The actor spoke to Soap Opera Digest about the obvious difference in look and take on the role than “Jagger’s” original portrayer, Antonio Sabato Jr.

Adam expressed: “My take on it was that it’s been 30 years; they obviously wanted to take this in a new direction and see what they could do with this storyline. And I also thought, ‘There is no way I can even touch what Antonio Sabato, Jr. did with the role in the past.’ Although I know it would be jarring for fans, in some ways, I was very happy that I didn’t look like I was going to try to mimic or echo at all what they had done with that storyline.”

Chiming in on replacing an actor in a role made soap-famous by someone else, Harrington added, “Obviously, if they’re going my way, they were going to take this in a different direction with so much time having passed. TV is immortal and still very much fresh in people’s minds, but like I said, I took the recasting and looking so obviously different as them saying, ‘Okay, we’re going to take this in a different direction and we are not trying to replace or touch what was originally a beautiful story.”’

Previously, Sabato Jr. had a few things to say about not being asked back to reprise his signature role for more than 30 years by the ABC soap opera.

As to just who this new version of John Cates will be romantically linked with, fans are seeing a spark between he and Jordan (Tanisha Harper), or could he wind up with Anna (Finola Hughes), or another lady on the canvas? “I think there is an element here of him coming to town, throwing a new guy into the mix,” Harrington shares.”We’ll see who he quote-unquote bonds with and who he doesn’t.”

So what do you think of the recast John “Jagger” Cates? Do you like where the show is taking the character? Do you appreciate Adam’s candor on acknowledging what Antonio Sabato Jr. did with this role in the past? Comment below.
