Who Bourne this West?Detective Nathan West (born James Reeves) recently found out that the mother who raised him, Madeline Reeves (born Magda Westbourne), is not his biological mother. His biological mother is Madeline's sister, Swiss-German mad doctor Liesl Obrecht (born Liesl Westbourne). The question remains, however, who's Nathan's father? Obrecht once had a romance with Russian prince Victor Cassadine, but has always been in love with Danish madman Cesar Faison. She even bore Faison a daughter, Dr. Britt Westbourne. Obrecht and Faison have always been disappointed because their child is a girl and not a boy. So, is Nathan Victor's son then? Is that why she gave him to her sister to raise, because he wasn't Faison's son? Why is Victor returning to Port Charles, and will we find out if he's Nathan's father? And, is Faison really dead? Watch GH and find out!
Featured characterPrince Spencer Stefan Niklosovich Cassadine is the son of Nikolas Cassadine and the late Courtney Matthews, who was the half-sister of Sonny Corinthos. Spencer was the product of an extra-marital affair while his mother was (invalidly) married to Jasper Jacks and his father was married to Emily Quartermaine. During her pregnancy, Courtney was infected with encephalitis during an outbreak in Port Charles, and had to deliver the baby extremely prematurely in February of 2006. Shortly before giving birth, Nikolas and Courtney became engaged while she was lying in the hospital, but Courtney died shortly after giving birth to John Michael Jacks. It was unknown to everyone except Courtney's husband Jax that Nikolas was the baby's father and not Jax, but the truth eventually came out and Nikolas renamed him Spencer to honor his brother and sister Lucky and Lulu Spencer. In the care of Nikolas, a prince of Russian nobility, Spencer is quickly swept away by the help and spends much of his early childhood away at boarding schools and on vacations all over Europe. He is raised rich and noble. When Spencer returns to Port Charles with his father in 2013, he has a snobby sense of entitlement, flaunts his riches and nobility, and conducts schemes to get what he wants. He falls in love with the idea of his dad's new girlfriend Britt Westbourne becoming his new mother. Nikolas and Britt, however, break up and Spencer is devastated. He is now going to great lengths and working with Britt to try and get the two back together. He has schemed and sabotaged, purposefully put the two in situations together, and he has now run away. Will his strategic games work to get the two back together? Watch GH and find out!
