I don't get this new angle that "Nikolas neglected Spencer for his whole life" that some online folks seem to push. Uh, what? Nikolas raised Spencer both in Europe and Port Charles on and offscreen for the bulk of his life before his 'death' in 2015, including in the several IRL years TC was gone until his return in '13. Obviously what Nik pulled to get one over on Valentin after he fell into that ocean was despicable, but in the years before that Nik had been there for Spencer for almost his entire childhood and he was a constant and committed parent until the recast. I can totally buy the rift in recent years since Coloma took over, but I also watched the show. I am far from Nikolas' biggest fan in the last 15 years, but people get too sprung for this twunk or the teen couple and want to totally rewrite history. Nik can be wrong for what he did after he 'died' and Spencer can be wrong for this crazy stalker mess - it's not an either/or, and it was never as simple as "Nik never had time for Spencer" because that's just not true.
Back up... there were scenes of Susan and Dan Stewart in the 70s on Youtube a few years ago?
I would love to see some footage of Susan in the 70s. Much as I love the string of 79/80 episodes that are available, I hate that they take place just after Dan has passed and Susan has left Oakdale.
Not quite so classic, but still a very memorable moment - Tracy's return in 2003. It won't embed, so here.
I will never forget this, as my exposure to Tracy had been minimal before the 21st century. I started watching in '93 right around the time she left, and I only had very vague memories of her from '96 and on The City as I was in school and could only fake sick so much. Tracy's reputation preceded her, but seeing her in the flesh Jane Elliot was an incredible shock of adrenaline to the show and the cast in a particularly moribund, Fab 4-obsessed period that year. She upended every scene she entered.
IIRC her first return was a brief stint to bring on Scott Clifton's Dillon and de-Q Skye - a vindictive stiletto in the ribs from Guza to JFP's reign, which as an OLTL fan I deeply enjoyed; I hated Skye acting like she belonged there - but JE was so, so good that I thought they'd be insane to keep her gone for very long. And they didn't; she was back on contract within months.
I remember her hysterically dissing each of the Qs in turn. Stuart Damon's reaction to Tracy cutting Alan down to size does not appear to be acting - he looks delighted.
