    Background

    Spencer was conceived during an affair that his parents had while they were both married to other people:

    • Nikolas to Emily Quartermaine, who acted as his mother until her death in 2007.
    • Courtney to Jasper Jacks, who was believed to be his father for the first few months of his life because Jax tampered with paternity test results.

    Spencer is seen as a miracle child because his mother, Courtney was told that she was infertile due to a miscarriage in August 2003.

    Spencer's biological mother, Courtney

    In September 2005, Courtney Matthews finds out she's about four weeks pregnant[33] soon after divorcing her husband, Jasper "Jax" Jacks. She and her then-boyfriend, Nikolas Cassadine, are overjoyed as Courtney thought she was infertile.

    Courtney had several mishaps during her pregnancy: two bouts of cramps, a fall, was pushed into freezing water, and had a tree fall on her leg (also hit her head).

    Jax finds out, though, and demands a paternity test be done. It comes back saying that Jax is the father. Courtney and Nikolas still decide that they will fight to keep the baby with them once it is born.

    Spencer's parents~Nikolas and Courtney

    Nikolas's grandmother, Helena Cassadine, also finds out about Courtney's baby. Trying for years to control the Cassadine empire through Nikolas, Helena finally sees the means to gain access to the Cassadine money by taking Courtney's baby to raise as the Cassadine heir. Courtney decides to leave town to give herself some space to think. Helena kidnaps her just as she gets out, but Courtney eventually overpowers her and escapes. With the help of her father, Mike Corbin, Courtney goes into hiding.

    Through his mother, he had a older sister named Emily Matthews-Morgan, who miscarried in August of 2003.

    Through his father's marriage, he gained Ava Jerome as a stepmother.

    Through his uncle Sonny's marriage, he gained Carly Corinthos as an aunt and Josslyn Jacks as a cousin.

    Spencer was considered an orphan after his father was supposedly killed by Valentin Cassadine in 2016. Nikolas was revealed to be alive 3 years later.

    His grandmother, Laura Webber has been his legal guardian since his father's presumed death.

    In November 2016, it's revealed that Nikolas and Spencer were never really the Cassadine heirs, when Spencer lost his entire inheritance to his great-uncle Valentin, it's revealed through Mikkos' hidden will that he left his entire estate to the eldest living son. However, in August 2019, it was revealed that there is a codicil to Mikkos' will which could prove that Valentin is not the rightful Cassadine heir which would mean that the inheritance really would belong to Spencer and Nikolas.

    With Stavros and Stefan dead, Valentin is the only living son and hence sole heir to the Cassadine Estate with his daughter, Charlotte to follow after him. Spencer has some resentment towards Charlotte because of what her father did.

    On January 20, 2020, after more than 3 years of separation, Spencer was finally reunited with his father. However, after learning that he willingly stayed away for all this time, he immediately rejected him, declaring the he was just as heartless as Valentin before disowning him.

    Storylines

    Spencer shortly after birth

    Spencer was born onscreen February 20, 2006 via C-section to Courtney Matthews and Jasper Jacks. In February 2006, Port Charles is hit by a deadly encephalitis plague. Both Nikolas and Courtney contract the virus. They end up getting engaged, but due to the virus the baby is at risk so Courtney decides that she wants to have a C-section no matter what the risk is for her. Courtney tells the doctors to save her unborn baby, as she fought to keep him alive. On February 20, 2006, she gives birth to a severely premature baby boy via C-section, and doctors are able to keep him breathing. Jax and Nikolas, who have recovered from the virus, keep an eye on the baby for Courtney. Courtney tells Jax she wants to name the baby John, after Jax's father. Overwhelmed with guilt, Jax confesses to Courtney that Nikolas is the baby's biological father, and that he had the test changed so that it would look like he was the father. Courtney tries to tell Nikolas this, but by the time he arrives, Courtney is severely weakened and dies without telling Nikolas the truth.

    Baby Spencer

    Baby John, as he is called, is able to fight despite being premature. He is infected by the virus, but luckily, he recovers. While he is in the hospital, Nikolas visits John to fulfill Courtney's wish of wanting to take care of her baby with him. Unfortunately, Jax keeps him away by ordering doctors not to allow Nikolas to see him, then getting a restraining order placed against Nikolas to make sure he stays away from John. When John recovers and leaves the hospital, Jax raises him with the help of Carly Corinthos, Courtney's best friend who he is now dating. The doctor who initially switched the DNA tests retires, and leaves behind the actual results. Meanwhile, Nikolas has another DNA test run on John, which Carly tampers with so Nikolas won't find out the truth. In June 2006, Jax holds a baptism for Courtney's son, naming him John Michael Jacks, after his father and Courtney's, and naming Carly the godmother. Dr. Robin Scorpio finds the results of the original paternity test, and realizes what Carly did to Nikolas' test. She tells Nikolas the truth at John's baptism. Nikolas doesn't believe her. Jax, however, intercedes and tells Nikolas that he is John's father, and that he tampered with the test to keep John and Courtney safe from Helena.

    Spencer and crazy Colleen

    Jax gives John back to Nikolas, who, though upset over Jax's manipulations, resolves himself to be a good father. He is also able to heal his relationship with ex-wife Emily Quartermaine, who divorced Nikolas when she found out he and Courtney were having an affair. Nikolas decides to rename John so that he will stop thinking about the time his son was kept away from him.[34] John is renamed Spencer after Nikolas' brother and sister, Lucky and Lulu Spencer. Emily is named Spencer's godmother. Nikolas hires Colleen McHenry as a nanny to Spencer. She becomes obsessed with Nikolas and falls in love with him, but Nikolas is falling back in love with Emily, who is also becoming a part of Spencer's life. Nikolas fires Colleen after finding out that all the fathers she previously worked for ended up dead.

    Spencer before he gets kidnapped

    Unfortunately, that doesn't stop Colleen. She kidnaps Spencer right before the Christmas manger in 2006, and Nikolas and Emily go after her. They find Colleen, but Spencer has already been taken by Helena, who followed Colleen, wanting Spencer to herself. Nikolas and Emily follow Helena to St. Petersburg and ambush her at a cathedral, where she is trying to baptize Spencer under a different name. She holds a knife to Spencer, threatening to kill him unless Nikolas lets her go. Fortunately, Nikolas and Emily reverse the tables and manage to get Spencer back, while Helena escapes in January 2007. Nikolas and Emily baptize him at the cathedral as Spencer Alexi Nikolayovich Cassadine. Nikolas and Emily, back together, raise Spencer with help from Spencer's extended family. Nikolas proposes to Emily on October 31, 2007, who promises to help him raise Spencer, but Emily is killed that same night by the Text Message Killer, Diego Alcazar.

    Helena and baby Spencer

    Nikolas goes into a depression, not looking after Spencer. He finds out he has a tumor in his brain, which is making him see Emily in hallucinations. Initially, he won't let go of her, but she tells him to let go of her for the sake of Spencer, so that he has a father. Nikolas agrees, and has the tumor removed. Spencer is shown rapidly aged later on when Nikolas is dating Nadine Crowell, a nurse who helped him get treated for the tumor. Nikolas and Nadine break up, and Nikolas starts seeing Rebecca Shaw, who is later revealed to be Emily's twin sister. After he introduces Spencer to Rebecca, he tells Rebecca that he doesn't want Spencer to get to know someone, only to have them disappear from his life, which is why he held off introducing them. Lucky later tells Nikolas that he doesn't spend enough time with his son, worrying about Rebecca more and leaving Spencer with a nanny. Nikolas later breaks up with Rebecca, unable to shake his feelings for Elizabeth Webber.

    Spencer feels Aiden kick

    Elizabeth finds out she is pregnant in February 2010, and both Nikolas and she believe the baby is his. When he tells Elizabeth he wants to start a relationship with her and raise their child together, Elizabeth refuses and reprimands him for leaving Spencer with his nanny often and not spending enough time with him. Nikolas resolves to be a better father to Spencer, spending more time with him than before and bringing Elizabeth's sons, Cameron and Jake, over to Wyndemere to play with Spencer. Elizabeth eventually agrees to let Nikolas be a part of the new baby's life, and becomes more comfortable around him and Spencer.

    Spencer with his family

    Jake and Cameron are brought over to Wyndemere by Elizabeth to play with Spencer. During their get-together, Elizabeth goes into labor. Nikolas takes her to the hospital, where she gives birth to Aiden Cassadine. When Cameron and Jake come to meet Aiden, Spencer is not with them, and Nikolas tells Elizabeth it's because he has a cold. About a year later, Elizabeth finds out that Aiden is actually Lucky's son, and tells Nikolas, who refuses to believe it. He decides to leave town with Spencer and Aiden. He changes his mind, though, and gives Aiden back to Lucky & Elizabeth. He and Spencer leave Port Charles, though, to start a new phase of their life.

    In January 2018, it was revealed that Spencer broke his legs on a ski trip so his grandmother Laura dropped out of the mayoral race to go take care of him in Europe. After Spencer got better, she returned to Port Charles on October 1.

    On October 16, Spencer returned to Port Charles and surprised his grandmother with flowers. While she scolded him for sneaking out of boarding school again, she was very happy to see him. Eventually, Kevin (who was not really Kevin at the time but was his psychotic twin brother Ryan Chamberlain) came back and Spencer apologized to him for the months he was lonely. "Kevin" accepted his apology and said it was not necessary.

    Spencer later went to see Ava Jerome at the Metro Court and he was angry with her for betraying him and his father's memory to get her face fixed, even saying that when Ava was in the hospital after being severely burned that she was beautiful since she promised to help him and she grew close to his father and that "this woman" doesn't even compare.

    On October 17, Spencer visited his uncle Sonny and eventually visited with Josslyn who was upset that Oscar Nero suddenly broke up with her for no reason. He comforted her and gave her advice, plus he consoled her by saying there are other guys who would be thrilled to date her.

    On November 5, Spencer tampered with the election machines to buy his grandmother more time to campaign. Eventually, the news of the election tampering was made public, but no one knew it was Spencer. Later on, he and Laura celebrated Nikolas' birthday and were also acknowledging that it's been two years since Valentin killed Nikolas. Afterwards, Spencer shared a happy reunion with the newly-released Britt Westbourne.

    On November 21, Spencer and Valentin faced off and Valentin revealed that he knows Spencer tampered with the election.

    He later visited Laura and Lulu in the hospital and reunited with them. Lulu had been stabbed and was recovering from her injuries. Eventually, they went back to Lulu's house where they threw her a surprise welcome home party.

    On April 12, Spencer was seen with his grandmother at the hospital and when Valentin and Spencer were going at it again, Laura told Valentin not to talk to Spencer. Eventually, Spencer went to talk to Nina and angrily stated that her "knight in shining armor" was blackmailing him. Nina didn't really believe him and then eventually Valentin showed up. He made Spencer think he was going to call the cops, but in reality he called his attorney to tell her that he won't pursue full custody after all. Afterwards he told Spencer to leave.

    On October 25, Valentin talked to Laura about Spencer sending champagne to Nina's office to taunt Valentin about his interrupted wedding and he told Laura that if Spencer ever becomes a legitimate threat then he will deal with him the way he deals with threats. He later clarified that he wouldn't harm him but he knows of ways to make his life very uncomfortable for him and told her to tighten the leash.

    On November 27, Valentin ordered Martin Gray to keep tabs on Spencer so that in case he needs to find him he can use him as leverage since there is a mysterious man looking for a codicil to Mikkos' will. The codicil could prove that Valentin is not the rightful Cassadine heir after all.

    On January 3, 2020, everyone at Valentin and Nina's wedding was shocked to learn that Spencer's father Nikolas is alive and well. Nikolas was the one searching for the codicil and he revealed that not only is Valentin not the rightful Cassadine heir, he also revealed that Valentin is not even a Cassadine at all. He is Helena's son.

    On January 20, Spencer saw that Ava came to visit him at his boarding school in France. He was still upset with her for withdrawing her statement that Valentin had killed Nikolas. When Spencer went on about how he lost his home, his inheritance and his father, Nikolas suddenly walked him and assured him that he hasn't. Spencer was shocked and he was happy to see that his father was alive and he hugged him.

    After their embrace, Spencer asked where he's been for three years. Nikolas confessed that he stayed away so he could strategize a way to take back their inheritance and destroy Valentin. Spencer grew angry since he willingly stayed away. Spencer ranted about how he hated Valentin for "killing" him but now he hates Nikolas for staying away.

    While Nikolas went to get some air, Ava suggested to Spencer for him to let go of his anger and let his father love him again. When Nikolas came back, he pleaded for Spencer to let him make everything up to him but Spencer cried that he was alone for three years. Spencer said that Nikolas was just as heartless as Valentin before telling him to stay away from him. Spencer then stormed off, leaving Nikolas devastated.

    On May 4, Spencer sent Nikolas a letter which contained an ultimatum. Spencer promised to let Nikolas back into his life if he divorced Ava. Nikolas desperately wanted to reconnect with Spencer, but he didn't want to risk losing the Cassadine fortune. Eventually, Nikolas called Spencer to let him know the answer to his ultimatum.

    On August 13, it was revealed that Spencer forgave Nikolas and that the two of them were conspiring to make Ava feel so guilty that she'll divorce Nikolas without taking the Cassadine fortune. Their scheme was blown out of the water by Lulu when Ava overheard her spilling the news of Nikolas' scheme to her boyfriend, Dustin Phillips.

    On February 19, 2021, Ava received an encased roach as a Valentine's Day gift while at the PC Grill with Nikolas. He claims that is not the present he got for her.

    On February 22, Ava receives Nikolas' gift, a bracelet, and asks the waiter who brought other gift. The waiter later tells her that the gift was already there when his manager came to work along with a note addressed to "Mrs. Cassadine". Ava immediately suspects Ryan and calls Jordan. She says she has not gotten a call about Ryan so he should still be paralyzed in the facility he was sent to.

    On April 5, Nikolas says that Spencer is going to graduate soon.

    On April 6, Ava was sent a prosthetic hand with a note that sounded to be from Ryan Chamberlain.

    On June 8, a photo of Nik and Ava is found stuck on a door at Wyndemere with a knife. Nikolas recognizes the knife as one of his. There is a note on the backside which threatens Nikolas and Ava by mentioning "Nurse Ingles"' head being cut off.

    On June 21, Avery finds a stuffed bear inside Nikolas' Metro Court suite that has Ryan's voice saying "I can't wait to be a family." Dante takes the bear as evidence.

    Trina runs into masked Spencer (2021)

    On July 1, Spencer breaks into the Jerome Gallery while wearing a mask. Nikolas has an alert that tells him about the break-in. Trina later runs into Nikolas in the gallery and pepper sprays him in the face. She apologizes once she realizes it is him and comments that she used all of the spray on him.

    Later Spencer creeps around the gallery and Trina runs into him. She tries to spray him but the pepper spray is empty. She throws a remote at his head and sets off Spencer’s trap.

    Spencer goes to Trina's graduation party at The Savoy, entering the back way and scaring Trina. They talk and flirt, with Spencer complimenting her, calling her "badass" and claiming his name is Victor and that he's a barback at the nightclub. When he is alone, Spencer looks at a picture of Laura, Nikolas, and himself. He calls Nikolas "father" which confirms Spencer’s identity.

    Trina runs into Spencer at Pier 54 (2021)

    Later Trina runs into Spencer who is wearing only shorts and sunbathing on Pier 54. She was looking for a place to watch the fireworks. He assumes she was searching for him and suggests they wear their birthday suits. Trina offers to take him to the park instead.

    At the park, Trina says she can introduce "Victor" to Cameron and Josslyn. Spencer says he is thirsty and goes to grab some bottled waters. He never shows up and Cameron tells Trina she may not want to be friends with someone who is playing games. Trina leaves to watch the fireworks with her mom as Spencer spies on her from the bushes.

    Spencer later apologizes to Trina about not showing up and gives her a water bottle. They talk about art and he says he lives in a studio in an expensive part of town. He tells her his mother died and he has been in Europe. Portia shows up and Spencer turns down an offer to have dinner with the Robinsons. Later Spencer goes to Mike Corbin’s grave.
