Well...I'm sure they will try to redeem him in some way (if he doesn't get killed off that is). If they do, I'm sure they will play the daddy card - although when someone is as self-absorbed as Spencer, I don't ever see him getting "close" to Hugh, nor do I see Hugh wanting to get close to Spencer.
I think it will strike a cord, but he won't change. Besides, are we really really sure that Spencer is in fact his daddy? Just throwing it out there.... ;)
