General Hospital Spoilers: Esme Continues Gaslighting Spencer and Trina Pays the Price

Cheryl has been watching soaps for 50 years and writing about them for 10



The damage continues

General Hospital, viewers should fasten their seatbelts because Esme Prince (Avery Kristen Pohl) is unleashing more of her venom on Port Charles by gaslighting Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and framing Trina Robinson (Tabyana Ali). Most fans of the show who have responded on social media don’t believe Esme is really pregnant and suspect she is faking in order to keep Spencer on a leash. Whenever Cameron Webber (Will Lipton) talks to "Spence” about his psycho girlfriend the Cassadine Prince seems to be coming around and realizing how evil Esme is. As soon as he is alone in her presence, however, he reverts to being putty in her hands. Spoilers say there is a good chance Trina will be arrested after the burner phone is found in her pocketbook. Joslyn Jacks ( Eden McCoy) will stand by her friend’s side and believe that Esme framed her. Joss will seek help from her stepbrother Dante Falconeri ((Dominic Zampragna) but his hands are tied. Jordan Ashford (Tanisha Harper) Harper) ordered him off of the case because he and Joss have a family connection.


The keystone cops

It will be easy for Trina's family and friends to assume Esme made the anonymous phone call but they will need to prove she placed the phone is Trina's bag. Spring Ridge should have surveillance cameras but Esme might have shut them off. Fans know the writers are not going to end the madness just yet and that more damage will be done before it is all over There are a lot of people in Port Charles who believe in Trina who are in law enforcement but this will probably initially play out like the bumbling fumbling Keystones Cops. Tina's dad Marcus Taggert is a detective, Jordan is the police commissioner, and Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner) was a private investigator. Even so, it looks like they will all be outsmarted by Esme for a season. General Hospital viewers are expressing how they are disappointed that Esme is fooling almost everyone in Port Charle, especially Ava Jerome Cassadine ( Maura West) and Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Columba) who are part of two of the most ruthless families ever. Spencer has also been a disappointment as when he was a young boy he was sneaky, conniving, and on top of things. Esme has turned him into a spineless henpecked shell of his former self.


Esme is Ryan’s pawn

It’s not clear how much of what Esme is doing is all on her own and how much has been dictated by her” father” Ryan Chamberlain ( Jon Lindstrom). Some General Hospital viewers believe that Esme really loves Spencer and is hoping that her end game will be that she had him as well as the family fortune. Ms. Prince seems to be truly hurting as she has begun to realize that her boyfriend is falling for Trina. Most of those who watch the ABC soap say they have no doubt that a day of reckoning will come when both Esme and Ryan are exposed and dealt with. It’s what has to happen between now and then that has fans rattled. Trina may be incarcerated for a crime she did not commit snd the phone in her purse could cause some to doubt her innocence. While Cameron Webber is being applauded for the sex tape Joss is being vilified. Cam has received pats on the back with a few people critiquing his technique. Joss has been called a slut her body critiqued and had guys assuming she is easy. All of this unnecessary suffering is because of one young woman and her demented mentor. One thing that General Hospital viewers agree on s that at the root of Trina being falsely accused and Spencer’s gaslighting is the fact that in the end, Esme is nothing more than Ryan’s pawn.

What's next for Sprina ?

General Hospital fans who wanted Spencer and Trina to end up together will find there are some obstinate the way. Viewers were hoping Sydney Mikayla and Chaves would fall in love but now Ali is in the role. Viewers will be watching to see if Ali snd Chaves have chemistry and some who watch the show may never accept the recast because they were invested in the original Trina. On-screen Trina snd her family could hold Spencer responsible for Esme’s actions and any chance he has with Trina could be long gone. There may be too much damage already done that the duo cannot recover from. There is also a chance that the writers might redeem Spencer by having him take down Ryan and or expose his girlfriend for the psychopath she is. Everyone is hoping Esme is not carrying Spencer’s baby because this would end things with Trina. Be on the lookout for spoilers and updates as this storyline progresses.
