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!

Niiice!! Missed him.

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.

Celia you know GOOD AND WELL wasn’t no kids around you while were watching the Disney channel LOL

@davlestev 1.
LOL. you’re right, dav. I am mostly stuck on this sofa, with a lame leg.I still watch cartoons. LOL.
Love my Mickey Mouse!! HaHa!!

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

He’s a great little actor and fun.

And wasn’t that a sweet tweet from Genie?? 🙂

Yes! He does such a great job in the role of Spencer.


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???

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

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

Faison as Nathan’s father!

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 ?

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.

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..


Did not really like his character all that much.

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!

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.

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.

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

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!


glad to hear he is returning–love that precocious child!

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

David Gail, Former ‘Port Charles’ Star, Cause of Death Determined; Mother Speaks Out on Dangers of Pharmaceutical Addiction and Fentanyl Epidemic

David Gail, who played Dr. Joe Scanlon on Port Charles (1999-2000), and who also appeared on Beverly Hills 90210, cause of death has been revealed. The actor passed away on January 16th at the age of 58.

According to the toxicology report, Gail died of anoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, which is a brain injury caused by a a lack of blood flow, following resuscitation from cardio pulmonary arrest due to the drug intoxication. The report also revealed that drug intoxication with amphetamines, cocaine, ethanol and fentanyl, were also involved.

Gail’s mother, Mary Painter, spoke to Deadline on the findings and opened up to what led to David’s ultimate passing. Gail was found unresponsive by emergency personnel who attempted to save his life. Eventually, he was put on life support where he remained for several days till his death.

In her statement, Painter shared, “It breaks my heart to learn that my son died this way. David became reliant on medicine many years ago, after multiple surgeries on his hands and wrists. He lived in enough pain to prevent him from working for almost a decade, with relief only achieved through full disability, physical therapy and pain medicine.”

She then added, “He struggled to stop taking pharmaceuticals and did before turning toward a more Eastern pain management including acupuncture and natural medicines. I can only assume that his former opioid dependence played a part in self-medicating from uncontrolled sources.”

David’s mother expressed a very important social message for our time about addiction that she hopes other parents remain aware of: “David’s death shines a light on the countless innocent victims of pharmaceutical addiction and the fentanyl epidemic that has taken so many of our sons and daughters. Please keep David and others battling pain or dependence, in your thoughts and prayers.”

Gail’s other TV credits included parts on: Savannah, Matlock, Murder, She Wrote, Doogie Howser, M.D., and Perfect Opposites.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Spinelli Serenades Maxie Then They Kiss! Are you in Favor of a ‘Spixie’ Reunion?

Spixie fans finally got their wish, sort of, on Thursday’s February 22nd episode of ABC’s General Hospital.

While Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) have been each others orbit and married to other people, have had children, and been each other’s best friends, it’s apparent that they belong together, or do they?

In story, Spinelli took to the stage on Karaoke night when he, Maxie, Cody (Josh Kelly) and Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) went out together.  When Spinelli sang, it featured a touching solo performance by Bradford Anderson, where Spinelli wears his heart on his sleeve for Maxie.

Maxie is all smiles watching Spinelli sing, and afterwards he walks towards her. The two talk about his living situation and how he would do anything for her. Maxie says she always knows she can count on him. She admits she loves listening to him sing to her, and she loves having him around. Spinelli says he considers her more than a friend. The two eventually share a kiss, but Maxie runs away.

The pick-up of the story happens on next week’s Tuesday, February 27th episode when in teasers, Maxie and Spinelli get closer.

Looking at the history of Spixie: they first got together from 2008-2010 when they were engaged. Then, in 2013 the duo had a one night stand. Next, they dated again in 2015, and flash-forward to 2024, and it looks like Maxie and Spinelli might be willing to try their romantic relationship one more time.

So, do you hope Spixie gets back together, or do you want Maxie and Spinelli with some other characters on the Port Charles canvas? Let us know. But first, check out the scene where Spinelli sings to Maxie below.
