Sydney Mikayla & Nicholas Alexander Chavez
General Hospital fans have patiently been waiting for Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Trina (Sydney Mikayla) to get together. Chavez teased on Twitter that this past Thursday’s show was going to be a big day (for Sprina) and it did not disappoint as Sprina almost kissed! Spencer showed up to Ava’s art gallery to check in on Trina and to say goodbye to her before he has to report to Spring Ridge. As he enters, Mikayla shows how Trina is still upset at Spencer through her body language (crossed arms). Trina convinces Ava that she’s okay with talking to Spencer alone. While Chavez shows that Spencer is delighted that Trina is at least willing to talk to him (by walking closer with a nervous smile), Mikayla aces the snark and sarcastic attitude Trina gives him when she tells Spencer that the night is still young to throw him out. Mikayla & Chavez have an undeniable chemistry that continues to draw in fans. Part of their appeal is that Trina can see Spencer’s potential while Spencer notices and admires how amazing Trina already is. When Spencer tells Trina that not everyone can be like her, Chavez continues to show Spencer’s admiration for Trina as he gives her a smile accompanied with a longing look. When Trina responds that no one else can be Spencer, Mikayla gives a head nod; a sign of body language that signals she means what she’s saying as she also gives him a longing look. Trina then tells Spencer that he should probably get going so he can spend some time with his family before he has to go to Spring Ridge, Spencer tells her that he can’t leave yet. Spencer goes to shoot his shot by taking another step closer to Trina as he reaches for her hands. He tells her that Kevin advised him to say goodbye to the people who matter most to him and that was what he was there to do. Mikayla and Chavez have mastered the eye gazing and longing looks as Spencer initiates a kiss and Trina leans in. The almost kiss is interrupted when Esme shows up. Spencer looks annoyed that they got interrupted as Trina appears disappointed and startled. Mikayla shows how quickly Trina’s guard goes back up as Esme enters the room by crossing her arms and giving Esme attitude (rightfully deserved). Spencer reiterated more than once that he was now ready to leave as he got to say goodbye to everyone who matters to him. The quick looks Chavez had Spencer give Trina made Sprina fans swoon more. Before leaving, Spencer turns to Trina and tells her that he’ll see her in a month to which Trina replies, “Not if I don’t see you first”. Mikayla’s radiant smile as Trina gives Spencer hope gave Chavez the opportunity to play that emotion back to her as Chavez’s facial expression lights up. Mikayla & Chavez’s scenes on Thursday became so popular that people who don’t watch General Hospital, or don’t watch the show often, were intrigued as Sprina fans shared content on Twitter. They continue to gain new fans and it goes to show that they are a growing fan favorite couple with the foundation to be a supercouple. Fans can’t wait to see what happens next for these two and trust that Mikayla and Chavez will continue to deliver in their scenes!
This past week on Days Of Our Lives, TR Coates puts the pieces together that Lani (Sal Stowers) is his daughter after Chanel lets it slip that Lani is her half-sister. TR goes to visit Lani and shares this news with her. When Lani realizes that TR is Ray, Paulina’s abusive ex-husband, Lani demands that he leave and that she wants nothing to do with him. Stowers perfectly embodied Lani’s anger through Lani’s closed off body language and her facial expressions (ex: nose flaring, gritted teeth, intense eye contact). Fans can feel Lani’s anger toward the man who had caused her mother so much pain that she felt the need to give her up at birth in order to keep her safe from him through Stowers’ powerful performance. Ray tries to convince Lani that he is changed man, to which Lani scoffs at. Stowers shows this by her shaking her head at him and reiterating that he should leave by showing him the door. Paulina then shows up and the women tag team to convince him to leave. After he does, Paulina and Lani have an emotional hug. Fans look forward to see what will happen next for Lani as this storyline continues and are excited for the material that Stowers will be able to perform to further showcase her talent.
