General Hospital spoilers reveal that Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) has just stopped Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Chavez) dead in his tracks. As Spencer was rifling through a car seat manual and attempting to figure out how to take his baby brother, Ace Cassadine, home to start their life together, Diane arrived to let him know Ace wouldn’t be going anywhere. Is Ace sticking around the hospital longer? Are there medical problems no one knew about, or has someone stepped in to block Spencer from taking charge of his baby brother’s life?
General Hospital Spoilers — Spencer Had it All Mapped Out
Spencer knew he was taking a major chance in trying to get custody of his baby brother. At first, he tried to keep Esme Prince (Avery Kristen Pohl) on his side, embracing her after she was hospitalized and even implying to her that he was probably the father of her unborn baby.
Now that she knows that isn’t true, she still wasn’t set to turn her back on Spencer — until he showed up in her hospital room with a very different demeanor and talking about taking her son from her. Spencer instantly grew bitter toward Esme after he found out she intentionally targeted him on her father, Ryan Chamberlain’s (Jon Lindstrom)orders. They were never really a couple; it was all a ruse. Although Esme can’t remember any of it, he’s still holding her accountable, emotionally. Now, Diane is telling Spencer he cannot be a father figure to baby Ace — at least not yet.
GH Spoilers Hint Laura is Concerned
Laura has been concerned that Spencer was planning to bite off far more than he could reasonably chew. He doesn’t know much about being a father, except from the perspective of a child who doesn’t want to be anything like his own dad. Laura knows Spencer’s real goal was just to stick it to his father, and the intention to not let his brother grow up with Nikolas as his dad was part of that.
However, now that Nikolas is out of the picture, there isn’t much of a need for Spencer to protect Ace from Nik. So why is he still bent on being a dad at his young age? Is this Spencer’s way of avoiding coping with what really happened with Esme, and the responsibility he feels he bears for some of it?
General Hospital Spoilers — Victor Has Plans for Ace
Laura is about to be a whole lot more concerned when she learns the reason Ace isn’t leaving the hospital with Spencer is because someone has contested the custody paperwork Diane filed on his behalf. Spencer figured he wouldn’t have any opposition in this fight.
Esme isn’t capable of providing Ace with a home since she is headed back to prison; so who could possibly want to take Ace off of Spencer’s hands? Why, his uncle, Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy), of course. Victor is hoping custody of Ace will endow him with the Cassadine fortune Nikolas left behind — which is only fitting if Victor is also the person ordering Mason (Nathanyael Grey) around and making him keep Nikolas on life support.
