General Hospital has recast the role of Spencer Cassadine with newcomer Nicholas Alexander Chavez, who first appeared, in disguise, as Nic and Ava’s stalker, on Thursday, June 1. The SORASed role was previously played by Nicolas Bechtel since 2013.

Someone has been making Ava and Nikolas’ lives a living hell as of late, to the point where, in order for Ava to protect her daughter Avery, she left Nikolas and asked for a divorce. If you watched yesterday’s episode, their stalker struck again, but this time was caught by Nic’s secret cameras in Ava’s gallery — as well as Trina. And yes, their stalker has been Nic’s son Spencer all along!
