Fans know that Spencer isn’t really dead on GENERAL HOSPITAL — he’s just presumed dead while portrayer Nicholas Chavez is off shooting his new Netflix series. However, Trina is grieving the loss of her true love, and until his return (in a few months), will find it very difficult to move on with her life without him.
“I think it’s going to be hard for Trina to do,” Tabyana Ali admitted to Soap Opera Digest. “I think to some degree, Trina is feeling guilty. She feels really guilty about all of this, and in some ways, she feels like this is her fault. I don’t know if moving forward is going to be on her mind. I don’t think moving forward is going to be a thing she wants to do right now!”
Compounding the issue is the fact that Spencer’s body was never recovered, so his loved ones have no closure. “If he was sick and dying and on his deathbed,” the actress mused, “then she’d probably feel the same way, but she probably wouldn’t feel as harshly about it toward herself because she’d have gotten to say goodbye, gotten to say all that she felt and let him go. But this is so sudden and he basically sacrificed himself for her. So there is going to be some guilt there and some resistance to wanting to live herself.”
So for the next few months, “Sprina” fans are going to have to watch and see how Trina copes with his heartbreaking loss… as well as what happens when Spencer miraculously returns from the “dead!”
“I would say that Trina is a girl who perseveres through anything and everything,” Ali declared. “She’s tough and she’s strong, and even if sometimes she might have her eyes closed in the dark, she’s still walking through it. I’m not 100 percent sure of what’s coming towards Trina next, but I know that she’ll be able to turn it into gold.”
