Spencer Debates Giving Trina His Letter at Her Party, While She Decides to Take a Leap With Rory
Monday, September 5, 2022: Today on General Hospital, Trina prevents Spencer from making a clean getaway, TJ inadvertently fuels Jordan's suspicions, and Sasha has a massive meltdown.
At the pool, Sonny asks Nina about her conversation with Ava. Nina says, like with him, there are some things in her life that he can’t be a part of. But also she has a lot on her mind, given the date. He asks what she means, as Brook Lynn and Chase interrupt them. Sonny notes BLQ’s big smile and she relays they’re a couple now. Brook Lynn suggests they all go on a double date, but Sonny knows she’s just buttering him up. “What favor do you need,” he asks.
Brook Lynn explains she’s becoming a music manager and asks Sonny to flex his muscle to get Chase some gigs. Sonny knows people who would book Chase as a favor, and agrees to help when Brook Lynn mentions her desire to bring down Linc. Chase interjects. His first love is being a cop, so having Sonny attached to anything he does won’t look good for him. Nina offers to hook him up with Curtis at The Savoy. Chase can live with that. Brook Lynn thanks them and Nina and Sonny leave.

Taggert, Portia, Trina, and Rory show up at The Savoy. Trina is blown away and thanks Curtis, who instructs the staff not to serve anyone underage wearing orange wristbands. Cam arrives and congratulates Trina. He thought Joss would be there by now. He texts her as Trina kisses Rory. Spencer eyes them as he enters.
Jordan arrives at the party. She asks if she’s welcome considering her role in Trina’s investigation. Taggert and Portia insist it’s all good. Portia steps away upon spotting Spencer. Taggert suggests to Jordan they put the past in the past. Jordan recalls overhearing Portia’s call about Trina’s paternal line, and wonders if that’s ever truly possible.
Rory and Trina see Spencer across the room. Nearby, Cam notes he had no idea he was planning to come. Neither did Trina. Spencer turns away and looks at the note he wrote Trina, as Portia asks her daughter if she needs anything. Trina insists she’s fine, but she wants a couple of minutes alone with Spencer. She walks over and tells Spencer she needs to heal and she can’t do that with him in her life. She knows he sacrificed his freedom for hers and that’s a big deal. However, they both need to move on. She hugs him and tells him to take care of himself in Pentonville. She wants the best for him. After she walks away, Spencer clenches his jaw and pulls out the letter.
Later, Cam sits with Spencer at a table and asks about the letter. Spencer rants about his stupid idea to put his feelings into a letter, but Cam thinks that’s his first non-stupid idea. Cam tells him that suppressing his feelings only leads to trouble. He leaves Spencer to consider.
