Lucas Lorenzo "Lucky" Spencer, Jr. is a fictional character on the ABC daytime soap opera General Hospital. He is the son of legendary supercouple Luke and Laura Spencer.

The role was originated by Jonathan Jackson in 1993, and after being portrayed by Jacob Young and Greg Vaughan, Jackson returned to the role in 2009 and then left again in 2011.

Jackson also returned for a brief stint in 2015.


Young Jonathan Jackson

The role was originated on October 29, 1993, by eleven-year-old[11] Jonathan Jackson.[12] Rumors circulated that Jackson's contract negotiations were not going well in 1996,[13] and again in 1998, when Jackson responded that he was considering college and had given the series six months notice of his consideration in accordance with his contract.[14]

In January 1999, it was reported that the series had worked out a deal,[15] and Jackson stated he had briefly extended his contract to allow the character's popular romance to continue.[16]

His contract allowed him to leave if he received a feature film role,[17] and Jackson left in April, shooting pre-taped scenes[18] that appeared through late May.[19]

Jackson explained to Soap Opera Weekly:

"I kind of feel that the fact of how much work they've given me this year, at this stage as an actor, they just maxed out quite a bit of what I would do for the show. And I'm at a better age now to go out. There are more projects for people my age or a little older than there were a few years ago. Hollywood's the kind of town where you kinda have to strike while the iron's hot."[20]

Jackson's manager Tony Monziotti released the statement:

"[Jackson] has told GH and made it very clear to me that he wants to periodically go back to GH. It's a question of if the storyline warrants it and they want him to come back; Jonathan would be more than happy to."[21]

His contract allowed him to leave if he received a feature film role,[22] and Jackson left in April 1999, shooting pre-taped scenes that appeared through late May.

In early 2000, Jackson stated he would enjoy reprising the role but his schedule would not allow it.[23] He suggested a short-term return that could coincide with the departure of co-star Rebecca Herbst (who plays Lucky's love interest Elizabeth Webber) should she not renew her contract, allowing for periodic returns from the couple later on.[24] Although Herbst expressed interest,[25] the show opted to keep the characters on canvas.[26]

During his time as Lucky, he was nominated for nine Emmys and won five: 1995, 1998, 1999, 2011 and 2012.

The role was recast with Jacob Young, who had left his role as Rick Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful. Angela Shapiro, at the time President of ABC Daytime, stated: "It is challenging to cast a character as intense and compelling as Lucky Spencer. We are fortunate to find a young actor with Jacob's charisma and talent.[27]

Young assumed the role on February 25, 2000,[28] almost a year after Jackson's last appearance, speculated to be an attempt to ease the transition between characters due to Jackson's popularity.[29]

Young commented:

"At first I was a little bit insecure about (taking the role after Jackson). But now that I've started to think about it, Lucky was such a great character, and Jonathan did such a great job that (fans) wanted him to come back. (Lucky) being in such demand, I think it was great that it opened up and allowed someone else to come in and give this character a shot."[30]

In November 2000, Young guest starred on the FOX network sketch comedy series MADtv, making a small cameo appearance as the character.[31]

That December, Young announced he would not be renewing his contract,[32] and last appeared on February 10, 2003. He cited a desire to pursue music and film work at the time, later admitting monetary contract disagreements as the reason he left.[33]

During his time as Lucky, he won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actor in 2002.[34]

Greg Vaughan, who had recently been let go from his role as Diego Guittierez on The Young and the Restless,[35] was cast shortly thereafter and first appeared on February 20, 2003.[36]

Vaughan later described his screen test to Soap Opera Digest:

"I was a little bit intimidated. I knew about the character, the foundation of the story. I knew it was a difficult task that I was about to take on."[37] In July 2009, Vaughan denied rumors[38] that he was being let go or put on recurring status.[39][40]

That September, ABC announced that Vaughan had decided to leave to explore other opportunities,[41] and that Jackson would be reprising the role. However, Vaughan announced via Twitter that it was the network that decided to let him go.[42]

Vaughan last aired on October 20, 2009.

Jackson first aired on October 27, 2009.[43]

Jackson stated upon returning:

It was a tough situation. I was not under any sort of headspace that someone was losing their job; it was that the role was opening up. (...) It was more of a confusing thing for me coming back and not knowing exactly what was going on, on the other end of things."[44]

In November 2011, it was announced that Jackson would vacate the role due to the heavy amount of work he was receiving.[45] TV Guide reported that Jackson attempted to negotiate with the network for a lighter schedule and to be repaired with on-screen love interest Herbst (Elizabeth), but was denied on both accounts.[46][47]

Jackson explained:

"I love to work hard but I've been at maximum capacity in terms of mental and emotional output for months on end and it has become too difficult. I am extremely thankful that they wanted to give me all those storylines with so much depth, but there's just no balance. (...) I have a wife and three kids and other things in life I have to think about. I just knew I couldn't sustain the schedule at GH and that kind of emotion for much longer. It was just too intense."[48]

Jackson confirmed the character would not die or be recast, and his last appearance was on December 23, 2011.[49]

He returned again from July 6 to July 14, 2015.[50][51] He was only onscreen for four episodes in that time span.

On April 13, 2021, reported that Jackson revealed that he is open to returning to GH to reprise his role of Lucky.[52]


Lucky Spencer is born in Texas off-screen on August 19, 1985 to Luke and Laura Spencer. Lucky's birth year is revised to 1983 when he first appears on-screen at the age of 10 in October 1993.

His date of birth is revised again in May 2011, when it appears on his marriage license as July 15, 1979.

Sons Cameron, Jake and Aiden

He has three sons with his ex-wife, Nurse Elizabeth Webber: adoptive son, Cameron (the biological son of the late, Zander Smith), legal son, Jake (the biological son of former mob boss, Jason Morgan) and his first and currently only biological child, Aiden.


A young Lucky and his parents

Lucky spent the first 10 years of his life moving from place to place with his parents to get away from mobster Frank Smith, his father's former boss and enemy. While living in British Columbia, Canada, the threat from Frank Smith to their family began again, so Luke and Laura told Lucky to head to Port Charles on his own; they would meet up with him later. Lucky made it to Port Charles safely and Aunt Ruby hid him at Kelly's. However, Frank Smith's men found him there. Lucky then befriended a boy named Sly Eckert, who hid him in the city's catacombs. Luke and Laura found him there with his cousin after Sly's father Bill Eckert (a dead ringer for Luke) was mistaken for Luke and shot by Frank's men. A few months later, Lucky got shot when he followed his dad to a meeting with a henchman. Fortunately, Lucky made a full recovery. The Spencer family settled in Port Charles and Lucky was quite happy with his life. He was thrilled when his new baby sister Lesley Lu was born on August 8, 1994 (changed to 1988).

Lucky and Nikolas meet

Lucky's happiness soon came to a halt when he found out his mother had a son by Stavros Cassadine while she was held captive by the Cassadines before he was born. Laura's other son Nikolas Cassadine arrived in Port Charles with his uncle Stefan and became the anonymous bone marrow donor for their baby sister, Lulu, saving her life when she had aplastic anemia. Lucky instantly disliked Nikolas, who was a rival for their mother's love and attention. This rivalry continued on another level, when Lucky had a crush on Sarah Webber, who was more interested in Nikolas. Things changed for Lucky when he found Elizabeth Webber, Sarah's sister, in the park on the night of valentine's Day. Elizabeth was badly bruised and her dress was ripped. Lucky came to her aid and called his Aunt Bobbie for help. Elizabeth told them that she was raped in the park by an unknown man. Lucky started to feel protective of Elizabeth and promised to keep her safe. Lucky and Elizabeth worked together to try to find her rapist.

Lucky and Liz

Lucky's world was rocked again when Nikolas blurted out during a fight with Lucky that Luke had raped Laura years ago, before they were married. Lucky thought that Nikolas was lying but was shaken by this information. He confronted his father. Luke didn't deny that he raped Laura and confessed to Lucky what happened that night at the disco. Lucky was disgusted with his father and left the house. He refused to have anything to do with his father and was angry with his mother for allowing his father to get away with it. Laura returned home and tried to explain her reasoning but he refused to accept it. Lucky found a room above Jason Morgan's bike shop to rent in exchange for helping Jason at his shop. Lucky grew closer to Elizabeth during her ordeal and they fell in love. Elizabeth helped Lucky to understand and forgive his parents for not being perfect. Lucky eventually forgave them but wanted to live on his own. Lucky and Elizabeth made plans for the future, including exchanging vows in a church one year after Elizabeth's ordeal. However, their plans were cut short when a fire broke out at Jason's bike shop one night. A body was found in Lucky's room upstairs with the necklace Lucky had given to Elizabeth, leading everyone to believe that the body was Lucky. Actually, Lucky was alive and being held captive by Cesar Faison, who was hired by Helena Cassadine.

For almost a year everyone believed Lucky was dead. But before Faison died in a boat explosion, he revealed to Luke that Lucky was alive. Luke investigated this and started finding clues to Lucky's true whereabouts. Helena led Luke and Laura down memory lane as she traveled with Lucky to the Haunted Star, Ice Princess Island, and Texas. Their last destination was in Canada: the Triple L Diner where Luke, Laura, and Lucky had lived before returning to Port Charles. While there, Helena gave Lucky bus fare and turned him loose. When Luke and Laura had figured out the last clues and arrived to get Lucky, he slugged Luke in the face and ran off. It turned out that during the time Lucky was held captive by Faison, Faison had started to program Lucky through mind control. Lucky was instructed under hypnosis to forget about his last days in Port Charles and focus on the disgust he felt for his parents and especially for Luke raping Laura. Lucky returned to Port Charles, but he was under Helena's control. Helena instructed him to push Elizabeth away and encourage her to be with Nikolas, because Nikolas was the one that loved her.

Elizabeth was suspicious of Lucky's behavior and did not believe him. So she continued to have contact with Lucky. Meanwhile Helena continued to use Lucky to do things for her. Lucky's love for Elizabeth kept him from falling deeper under Helena's control and also kept Lucky from pushing Elizabeth totally away. During a conversation between Lucky and his friend Emily Quartermaine, she accidentally spoke Helena's catch phrase for Lucky's programming, "protect your queen," and became the first person to actually witness Lucky's transformation. Emily literally shook him out of the trance but told Lucky what happened to him every time she said that phrase. Finally he realized that he was not himself and that he had been programmed by Faison and Helena. After some initial reluctance, Elizabeth was able to convince Lucky to see Dr. Kevin Collins. Kevin helped to break down the lower levels of the programming which helped Lucky lose the anger towards his parents. He was able to admit he loved them and advised them that he was under Helena's control. Lucky then continued to fight Helena's control and rebel against her.

When Helena realized that the lower level of control had been broken, she resorted to a higher level involving the use of the Ice Princess diamond. She used the Ice Princess to hypnotize Lucky and instructed him to attack Jason Morgan, who Lucky felt was after Elizabeth romantically. Lucky attacked Jason with a knife on the docks, forcing Jason to defend himself by hitting Lucky several times to get the knife out of his hands. Elizabeth thought that Jason attacked Lucky without cause. Lucky came out of his trance and he didn't remember attacking Jason or why he did it. But he told Liz that Jason started beating on him for no reason. He had some more run-ins with Jason over Elizabeth. Helena gave Lucky a diamond ring (the same ring that Stavros gave to Laura when they were married) to give to Elizabeth and instructed him to propose to her. Lucky complied. Later, Lucky had a run-in with Nikolas at GH. They started fighting in the stairwell, when Nikolas tried to persuade him to get help from Kevin again. Stefan interceded to protect Nikolas from being hurt by Lucky. So instead Lucky hit Stefan in the face and knocked him down a flight of stairs. Nikolas broke up the fight and tried to keep the two apart. Stefan pressed charges and had Lucky arrested for assault at the Port Charles Grille during his engagement party.

Realizing that Lucky was under Helena's control again, Luke and Laura tried to help Lucky by getting him to see Dr. Kevin once more. Kevin went to see Lucky in jail and tried to de-program him but wasn't successful. Helena, dressed as a cleaning lady at the jail, put him under her spell and instructed him to start a fire in his cell and escape. Lucky did what Helena asked and managed to escape but later didn't realize how or why. Elizabeth found him and convinced him to get help, telling him what he had done. Helena later instructed Lucky to pour a vial of mysterious liquid in his cousin Lucas' drink at the Brownstone. Lucky did what she asked but then didn't remember doing it later on. After he learned that Lucas was rushed to GH and was in a coma, Lucky felt uneasy and started to feel that he had something to do with it. He agreed to listen to Nikolas and Elizabeth. Lucky and Elizabeth moved into Nikolas' house so that they could keep a better eye on him and keep him from being alone with Helena.

Lucky learned that he had a talent for photography. His cousin Carly recognized his talent and hired him to take pictures of Gia, his brother's girlfriend. Laura realized that his photos of Gia were very good and hired him to take pictures of Liz, who was offered a job at Deception as a model as well. However, Lucky was not immune to Helena's control. She managed to get him alone and put him under her control. He was told that he was one day going to have to get rid of his father and the rest of his family. Lucky resisted her control as much as he could but it was too hard. After Lucky denied making a pass at Gia, Nikolas kicked him out of the cottage. Later on Lucky spotted Nikolas and Elizabeth in conference several times. He told Elizabeth that she was better off with Nikolas.

Helena gave Lucky instructions which led him to her secret lab underneath General Hospital. He found his father Luke there fighting with Stavros and Helena's men. Helena forced Lucky to inject Luke with a virus that would make Luke go crazy and render him useless as an opponent to the Cassadines. Lucky tried to resist and pled with Luke to forgive him before he injected him with the virus. Later, Lucky went to Luke's apartment above the club and wallowed in the feeling that he had done something to hurt Luke. Elizabeth showed up and immediately realized that Helena had got to him again. Lucky realized that he couldn't control himself and broke the engagement off with Elizabeth. He told her to go to Nikolas and be with him. Elizabeth left reluctantly. When Luke showed up alive at the apartment, Lucky asked Luke to help him fight Helena. But it had been days since Luke had been injected with the virus, so he was too out of it to be helpful to Lucky. Suddenly two goons broke into the apartment and took Lucky away kicking and screaming. He recovered and found himself tied up in a chair in a strange room. As Elizabeth emerged he told her to get out of there, but then he realized that she was the one who orchestrated his kidnapping to keep him safe from Helena. Lucky was impressed by her and realized just how much she loved him. They kissed and made up and Lucky agreed to stay put.

Still in the dark about how to trigger Lucky's programming, Nikolas took Helena to where "he" had stashed Lucky and told her to erase his memories of love for Elizabeth. While Elizabeth hid in a closet, Helena pulled out the Ice Princess and told Lucky to forget his love for Elizabeth. It worked and Lucky pushed Elizabeth away. He behaved erratically in the weeks afterward and even pulled Gia into a kiss. Even though he couldn't remember the things Helena had made him do, Lucky still knew Helena and Stavros were his enemies. When Stavros, using the alias Lucien Kane, began sniffing around the newly single Gia, Lucky warned her to stay away from him but she didn't listen. When she overheard Nikolas tell Helena that he would kill Elizabeth to prove himself to her, Gia tried to get Lucky to help her protect Elizabeth but he refused. However, Lucky later showed up on the Cassadine yacht to accuse Helena of killing Chloe, Luke, and Elizabeth.

When Helena took several Port Charles residents hostage in her underground lab, she gathered all of the captives and revealed her secret weapon: Lucky! She told Lucky the secret trigger phrase but nothing happened. So she pulled out the Ice Princess to get him to focus. But Helena didn't know that Lucky had managed to break through his programming by focusing on his love for Elizabeth. Fists started flying and people started running. Lucky helped Stefan destroy the massive computer system before they fled from the lab. Everyone made it out of lab and Helena was arrested. Lucky went to visit Helena in her cell to gloat over being free from her control and her new status as a jailbird. However the Spencers were flabbergasted to learn weeks later that there was barely any physical evidence to prove that her lab ever existed.

Finally free of Helena, Lucky and Elizabeth reunited. However, Helena's memory wipe of Lucky's love for Elizabeth was harder to shake than Lucky had anticipated. Feeling like he owed it to Elizabeth to make her happy, Lucky ignored his lack of love for Elizabeth and proposed to her. They planned a New Year's Eve wedding, but Gia told Liz that Lucky didn't love her anymore and the wedding never took place. They tried to start over and fall in love again but it was slow going. When Gia and Elizabeth were injured in a car wreck, Lucky stayed by Elizabeth's side at the hospital. Nikolas invited them to move into Wyndemere with Gia and him and they agreed. Elizabeth's newly-returned sister Sarah also moved in with them and the sexual tension between Lucky and Sarah began to grow. Lucky was temporarily distracted by the fact that Nikolas secretly helped Helena escape to protect Gia's secret guilt in the car accident. Lucky declared a new Cassadine/Spencer war but agreed not to tell Elizabeth the truth regarding the accident. When she finally remembered what had happened, she severed her friendship with Nikolas and Gia and broke up with Lucky.

When the brothers briefly reunited to search for a presumed dead Carly, Nikolas tried to explain why he had helped Helena. But Lucky didn't want to hear it. Still wrapped up in his feelings for Sarah, Lucky was shocked to discover that Maxie wanted to take him to bed. He tried to let her down gently but she felt humiliated despite his efforts. In retaliation, Maxie told Elizabeth that she had seen Sarah and Lucky headed towards his room. Elizabeth found them there in bed together and told them off for sneaking around behind her back. Lucky and Sarah tried to have a relationship in the open, but Sarah was jealous of Lucky's concern for Elizabeth's safety. The last straw was when Lucky ran to Elizabeth's side after she was involved in an explosion while being rescued from a crypt. Sarah broke up with Lucky and left town not long after.

Lucky went back to being a photographer for Deception. His parents had reunited and planned to have a wedding in late summer. As Laura planned the wedding, she began to have flashbacks of a night in the attic of her childhood home. Luke then poked around in the attic for clues and discovered an old camera with film still in it. He took it to his son, and Lucky was able to develop it. The first picture he developed was of a young Scott Baldwin covered in blood. While Luke pursued the new lead, Lucky managed to get another picture to develop. Before Lucky could discern what was in the photo, Luke realized what it was and took off in search of Laura.

When Luke and Laura didn't show up for their wedding, Lucky and Nikolas grew worried and went to the attic to search for clues. Instead, they found Rick Webber, Laura's stepfather, dead on the floor. Worried that Luke had killed him, they put Rick's body in his car, covered him in booze, and then pushed the car off a cliff to make it look like a drunk-driving accident. But Scott and Mac knew right away that it was staged. Lucky was also haunted by what he had done to Rick's body. While the boys evaded being arrested, they worried about their mother and speculated about what had happened in the attic. Lucky was relieved when Luke finally called but Nikolas was worried for Laura's safety. Against Lucky's wishes, Nikolas told Scott the couple's whereabouts but the couple had already left by the time they got there. Mac and Scott finally caught up to the couple when they returned to the attic. Lucky and Nikolas were devastated to learn that their mother had had a severe mental breakdown. They went to see her in the hospital, but she had retreated so far into herself that she believed she was still a teenager and didn't recognize them as her children. They said a tearful goodbye to her before she was committed to a mental institution.

Scott arrested Luke for Rick's death and Lucky tried to get Luke to let him break him out of jail. But Luke refused and had Nikolas help him instead. Lucky worried when his father disappeared for a while, especially when a copy of Luke's will arrived on his doorstep. Elizabeth and Lucky managed to find Luke working on a chain gang in the south and brought him home kicking and screaming. Lucky did his best to keep Luke out of trouble. But Luke was determined to punish himself for Laura's condition. He set fire to the police station and would have died if Lucky had not run in and saved him. Luke began seeing a therapist on Scott's order and Lucky tried to get on with his life.

He met a beautiful blonde named Laura while enrolling in some college courses. They met on various occasions and a friendship grew between them. He learned that she was a former high-priced call girl trying to make a fresh start. But a powerful former client wouldn't let go. He beat her and had her arrested. So Lucky blackmailed Scott into helping her dispose of the man. After the incident, Lucky and Laura's friendship blossomed into something more, although it took her awhile to get used to being with a guy who didn't pay her. One day, Lucky saw Luke and "Laura" together. In turned out that Laura, whose professional name was Summer, was Luke's mystery blonde. Lucky got upset and believed that she'd been playing them both for suckers, hoping to gain financially from them. But they decided to keep Luke in the dark about knowing each other. When Scott discovered the truth, he gleefully told a shocked Luke.

Luke tried to get Lucky and Summer back together. But they still had problems, and Summer returned to being a call girl. Lucky later discovered that Nikolas had hired Summer to distract Luke from trying to find their mother. Lucky told Luke and confronted Nikolas. Summer told Luke that Nikolas had blackmailed her into portraying a look-a-like Laura but she had met Lucky by mistake. Lucky, Luke, and Summer then embarked on an adventure to locate Summer's brother Matt. When they found him he revealed he wasn't Summer's brother before dying from a stab wound. Summer confirmed that she was only looking for Matt, her ex-boyfriend, so that he would tell her where the money he had stolen from the Cassadines was hidden. They got arrested for Matt's murder and Nikolas showed up to bail them out, although Luke refused to leave with them. Their adventure ended in a tunnel underneath an old Cassadine estate in Russia where the money was supposed to be buried. But the money had been replaced by worthless coins so they returned to Port Charles empty handed.

Back in Port Charles, Summer finally admitted she loved Lucky and she became a waitress at Kelly's so she could move into the room across from his. When Lucky finally went to see his mother at the mental institution, Summer went with him. Luke blamed Lucky for giving Nikolas complete control over Laura's medical treatment and got into a physical fight with Lucky over it. Summer knocked Luke out to end the altercation, but Luke later showed up at Lucky's after being given drugs at the hospital. He was delusional and believed Summer was Laura. She went along with it, but when Lucky showed up Luke ran away. Later Summer helped Lucky trick Luke into being committed to a mental hospital.

At Nikolas and Emily's engagement party at Wyndemere, Summer was walking out on the bluffs in the heavy fog when she was pushed from behind. Nikolas and Lucky rushed to the bottom to discover that the fall had killed her. Lucky was devastated and vowed to find the person responsible. When Luke showed up at the party, Lucky attacked a shocked Luke and accused him of being responsible for Summer's death. Alexis Davis theorized that Luke didn't do it, and that Emily was the intended victim since she had also been out there that evening. However, no one else believed that Luke was innocent. Lucky later learned that one of the servants on the island that night had since disappeared and he believed that servant was the one who pushed Summer off the cliff.

Believing Stefan was responsible for Summer's death, Lucky tried to urge Mac to work harder in finding evidence to arrest him. But Mac told him to back off or become a cop and look into the case himself. So Lucky went to the academy and became a cop. He worked with Nikolas' new bride Lydia to secretly tape Stefan discussing how he had hired Darius to push Emily off the cliff, but Darius had pushed the wrong girl. The tape got Stefan arrested, but it didn't keep him in jail.

Luke came back to town, extremely unhappy to hear that Lucky had become a cop. Luke then brought his own brand of justice to Stefan by kidnapping him, and holding a mock trial that he broadcast on TV. Lucky was later forced to arrest Luke after he fought with Stefan, and Stefan wound up with a knife in the chest. Luke managed to escape, and Lucky tracked him to Skye's lake house. Skye then knocked him out to keep Luke hidden. The charges against Luke were later dropped when Nikolas discovered a suicide note left behind by Stefan. Luke was free, but the rift between father and son still existed. They had a brief moment of closeness around the holidays, but Luke continued to live his life apart from his son.

Lucky finds out the truth about Jake

Lucky had a hard time adjusting to being a cop. He was investigated, and later cleared after he shot Dillon Quartermaine following an altercation between Sage Alcazar and Alexis. When Sonny barricaded himself in the penthouse after trying to kill Alcazar in front of several witnesses, Lucky tried to behave like a cop but ended up helping a wounded Sonny and a hysterical Carly out of the building. When the body of Cody McCall was found in the tunnels of Wyndemere, Ric had Nikolas arrested for murder. Lucky pushed hard to get Ric to find the real killer, even when Ric pulled him off the case. Lucky suspected Ric of having an ulterior motive for getting Nikolas convicted, and after he realized that Zander was actually pulling Ric's strings, Lucky conferred with Nikolas on how to go after Zander and Ric for trying to frame Nikolas. Nikolas was later cleared of all charges and Lucky became involved in the hunt for Zander, who was named as the one who shot Detective Beck during a shoot out with mob members.

The Quartermaines and Cassadines auctioned off the treasure from the sunken ship, and Lucky showed up as extra security during the event. But the treasure was stolen anyways. While Lucky detained all the patrons for questioning, news reached the room that a fire had broken out in the basement of the hotel. Lucky then helped coordinate the rescue efforts. While trying to find a way out with Luke, he was nearly killed by a falling beam. But Cameron Lewis, Luke's therapist, pushed Lucky out of the way and died instead. Nearly everyone was evacuated, but others were missing, including Nikolas. Lucky and Emily feared the worst, but Nikolas showed up alive a few days later. A body found in the room where the fire broke out was identified as Zander, but the autopsy showed he was dead before the fire consumed his body.

Lucky and Sam in 2008

Elizabeth finally admitted to a confrontation with Zander that ended in her knocking him out, making her the murderer. As Lucky, Emily, Nikolas, and Ric vowed to cover up Elizabeth's involvement, evidence began to surface that Zander was really alive. Zander emerged from hiding and took Emily hostage in an effort to force her to love him again. Lucky tried to negotiate with Zander to release Emily and Zander eventually agreed. As they walked out of the cottage, Zander made a threatening move and the cops opened fire on him. Zander died in Emily's arms. Nikolas, who was on the way home from a cancelled business trip, ran his car off the road after hearing that Zander had taken Emily hostage. Lucky and Emily worked hard to search for him. But after a few weeks, they were forced to conclude that Nikolas had drowned in a nearby river. Lucky tried to comfort Emily and supported her while she grieved and planned a memorial. At the memorial, Lucky watched as Helena cursed everyone in the room for Nikolas's death and then Luke got up to stop her. The pair began to grow close again as Emily leaned on him during her grief for Nikolas and for a sick Michael.

In 2005, Lucky and Elizabeth begin their romance again. Elizabeth is now a nurse at General Hospital and has a son, Cameron Webber, fathered by Zander. Before Lucky and Elizabeth marry, Elizabeth chooses to become a surrogate mother for Jasper and Courtney Jacks. Lucky does not approve, and takes a break from their relationship. After a car accident, Elizabeth miscarries. Lucky helps her through her pain, and they begin a rocky marriage.

In 2006, Lucky becomes addicted to painkillers, and begins an affair with Maxie Jones, his pill supplier. Elizabeth discovers Lucky's infidelity when she walks in on him having sex with Maxie. Initially staying and wanting to help Lucky get sober, Elizabeth finally leaves when she realizes Lucky is still addicted. Meanwhile, Maxie, angry that Lucky rejected her after Elizabeth left, tells her father, Commissioner Mac Scorpio, Lucky's boss, about his addiction. Mac beats Lucky up, and fires him. Trying to get his job back, Lucky tries to frame Jason for drug possession, but ends up nearly killing Elizabeth. Elizabeth is not hurt, but she tells Lucky off for nearly killing her and her baby, revealing she's pregnant. This revelation gets Lucky to go to rehab, wanting to sober up and be a father to his child. Lucky and Elizabeth divorce, though Lucky tries to make amends with her as he goes through rehab. Maxie, meanwhile, is still hung up on Lucky, and convinces him that she's pregnant, as well. Though Lucky agrees to help with the baby, he tells Maxie that he's committed to Elizabeth. Lucky completes rehab, and is reinstated. Soon after, though, he is caught with pills in his desk, and nobody believes Lucky when he insists he was framed. Believing Maxie is responsible, Lucky confronts her, but she denies responsibility. Lucky doesn't believe her, and storms off, and Maxie follows. The ensuing argument leads to Maxie taking a fall and suffering a miscarriage. Lucky feels responsible, and tries to console Maxie, while reconciling with Elizabeth. Elizabeth later figures out that Maxie faked being pregnant. With the truth being outed, Maxie admits to Lucky that she faked being pregnant, and purposely fell down to fake a miscarriage. Outraged, Lucky pushes Maxie away, and focuses on Elizabeth. He proposes to her again, but she holds off on answering.

During the Metro Court hostage crisis, Elizabeth revealed that Jason was the father of her unborn baby, conceived during one night when she found out Lucky was sleeping with Maxie. After the crisis is over, Elizabeth accepts Lucky's proposal, and she and Jason keep the paternity a secret to protect the baby from Jason's dangerous lifestyle. Elizabeth and Lucky remarry, and she gives birth to a baby boy named Jacob Martin Spencer. Elizabeth seeks Jason's help when Jake is kidnapped, and their continued friendship makes Lucky feel jealous. Jake was rescued, but their marriage becomes strained. When Jason's ex-girlfriend, Sam McCall, hires Lucky as a bodyguard, Lucky realizes she's trying to seduce him to get revenge on Jason and Elizabeth. Lucky lets himself be seduced, though, and he & Sam eventually start a relationship after Lucky and Elizabeth divorce.

Lucky found out the truth about Jake's paternity during the Black and White Ball. He was furious and heartbroken, but later agrees to keep the secret to protect Jake. At the same time, Elizabeth shows her disapproval of Lucky dating Sam. Lucky asks her why, and she reveals how Sam saw Jake get kidnapped, and didn't say anything. She also reveals that Sam hired two gunmen to scare Elizabeth and her boys. Lucky confronts Sam, and breaks up with her, kicking her out. He later gets a call that Sam was admitted to the hospital after being hit by a car.

After leaving Shadybrook, he is having anger problems and ends up nearly hitting Maxie head-on. He swerves to avoid her, and she escapes getting hurt.

He goes back and admits to Elizabeth that he lied to help her get better.

Lucky and his brother, Ethan

Lucky attends a therapy session with Elizabeth and Nikolas on March 1, 2010, where he tells the therapist that Elizabeth sleeping with Nikolas is partially his fault because he never stopped looking at her as the teenage girl who he played hero to.

Lucky tells Nikolas he also hopes the baby is his, because he and Elizabeth are over.

After a series of hallucinations, Liz finds him and tries to talk him down. Lucky tells Elizabeth that she is the only one he will ever trust. When she realizes how high Lucky is she leaves him in the care of Lulu's boyfriend, Dante Falconeri, so she can go to the hospital and get medicine to help Lucky. However, a hallucinating Lucky knocks Dante out and runs off to the church where he and Liz took their vows in 1999 and begins hallucinating again.

Lucky struggles with pills after Siobhan's death but is able to overcome the temptation and goes to Ireland to honor Siobhan's last wishes. He rushed home when he receives a message from beyond that Aiden was sick. It turns out that the message he received from his late son Jake was right, and Lucky had Luke rush Aiden to the hospital. Aiden was diagnosed with Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura and after a blood transfusion from Lulu he fully recovers. Elizabeth tries to reunite with Lucky, believing that they will always find their way back to one another, but Lucky refuses claiming that all they do is hurt one another. He reinforces that he will remain a prominent father to their boys, but a relationship between the two of them just wouldn't work. Elizabeth however refuses to accept that and continues trying to get them back together. She even checks herself into Shadybrook again to gain Lucky's attention. After Lucky continues to reject her, Elizabeth starts to lose hope in them reuniting, but just as she starts to lose hope, Lucky begins to second guess his decision of not pursuing a relationship with Elizabeth again.

Jake's message

Lucky went to Shadybrook and checked Elizabeth out for the day so that they could spend Christmas together with their boys. At Elizabeth's home, she again tried to talk Lucky into reuniting with her, but he refused and they started to argue. Elizabeth pleaded with him to forgive her and asked that he not run away from her, but Lucky maintained that he needed to get away so that they wouldn't fall into the same trap again and he leaves. While he is gone, Maxie comes over and confronts Elizabeth about faking her breakdown. An upset Matt had revealed to Maxie that Elizabeth faked her illness and wanting to protect Lucky, Maxie went to confront Liz. She called Elizabeth insensitive for faking a breakdown when Lucky's mother Laura really was a mental patient for years.

Towards the end of Maxie and Liz's argument, Lucky returns and overhears that Liz had faked the breakdown. He asks Maxie to leave and once she does, Lucky and Liz start to argue again about her deception and manipulation. Elizabeth again begged him not to leave but his mind was already made up. Elizabeth then left to go to the hospital and confront Maxie for ruining her family. While she was gone, Lucky spent some time with Cameron and Aiden and said goodbye to them. Ethan also stopped by the house and they shared their goodbyes. After saying goodbye to his sons and Ethan, Lucky left Port Charles and returned to Ireland to find himself. Elizabeth has spoken with Lucky since he's been there and she told Anna that he is happy.

Lucky and Aiden

On July 14, Lucky brings Jake home to Elizabeth and visits with Aiden. They share a brief reconciliation before Lucky goes to talk with Luke. They have a honest heart to heart conversation.

On July 16, Lucky pays Nikolas a visit. He learns about Jake living with Elizabeth, and his children. He expresses concern about his children living with a man they know nothing about.

Nephew Spencer

Lucky is surprised that Nikolas hasn't told anyone. Nikolas says everyone has already mourned Jason and moved on. Sam and Patrick are together, and Elizabeth and Jason are together. Lucky stops by Elizabeth's and sees Jason and Jake playing together. He then leaves, believing his children are in good hands.

Niece Charlotte and nephew Rocco

In June 2016, Lulu mentions to Dante that Lucky spends most of his time in Africa helping orphans and refugees. On August 18, 2016, Laura stated that Lucky was able to make it to Nikolas' funeral (although Nikolas wasn't actually dead at the time but as of July 19, 2016, he was once again presumed dead). Unbeknownst to Lucky, Nikolas was revealed to be alive in 2019.

In 2022, when his father, Luke, was killed in a cable car "accident" presumably in December 2021 (Tracy came to Laura's house after midnight on New Year's Eve to deliver the tragic news), a special memorial for him (Luke) was held on the Haunted Star in January 2022. According to Laura, Lucky and Ethan are unable to attend due to there being an Cholera outbreak at the village where Lucky is volunteering. Lucky attending the Haunted Star memorial would've required him to quarantine in Africa for a 2-week period.
