GH opinions

Trina is surprised when Spencer shows up on her doorstep. She thought he was leaving town. He was, but he realized he has a reason to stay.

She tells him to take off his boots and come in. Everyone else is watching a movie.

Trina admits she’s been playing on to pretend to be in the spirit, but the past few days have just been a bad dream.

He admits the last few years have been bad for him. He would change everything other than coming back to town and meeting her.

They sit and discuss Rory, both blaming themselves for his death. Esme being caught is the only thing that will make things right.

He says if the police don’t do it, he will. He’s sure that he’s the biggest target now.

She doesn’t want him to put a bullseye on himself but he’s confident this is the only way.

Trina admits his plan has potential, but it’s missing her.

She suggests that if they pretend to turn to each other after her boyfriend’s death, that will bring Esme out of hiding.

He’s not sure that’s a good idea.

She pushes and they shake on it. When they step into the snow, she brushes a snowflake from his nose and they smile at each other.

In the tower, Esme sings to herself and thinks about starting off the new year.

Drinking Nikolas arrives.

He starts quizzing her about her family and claims that he’s the only person who gives a damn about her.

She wonders why he isn’t off trying to win his wife back. Has she wised up and cut him loose?

Taunting him, she says he will only have himself to blame when the hook kills someone else.

He offers to listen to her. She thinks he’s sad and lonely, so he exits as she cackles that the closet thing he has to companionship is his prisoner.

After turning up the heat and bringing her fresh blankets, he wishes her Merry Christmas, warning that she hasn’t known true loneliness yet, but she will when she gets to Cassadine Island.

Ryan glares. She tells him his bedroom eyes are gift enough for her.

He can’t open it himself. She shoves it in his hands as Mac, Felicia, and Dante swan in.

Heather starts taunting them. Mac shoves the earring in Ryan’s face.

Dante gets in his face and Mac gets him to back down.

They keep questioning him about Esme and explain they are already searching his cell. When they are done with him, he will be going to Darkham for the rest of his life.

Once the cops take off, Ryan recalls that Heather stole those earrings from him years ago.

Joss pulls over on the side of the road. She can’t get a cell signal. A car pulls up.

She yells into the light that she doesn’t need help. It’s just Dex.

He notices she has some whiplash and she reminds him that Sonny wouldn’t be happy to know they are together.

He changes her tire as she calls a tow truck. When she complains about it being cold, he gives her his coat.

“If I want you to take your clothes off, you’ll know,” she says. He likes that about her.

They tease each other about being in touch with their feelings.

After some banter, they start making out until the truck arrives.

Dex backs off and apologizes. Annoyed, she tells him to stop making excuses for her choices.

He drives her to Carly’s and drops her off. He hopes they can get together sooner rather than later.
