As “General Hospital’s teens planned their cabin trip on the show, fans were looking forward to seeing more romance between Trina Robinson and Spencer Cassadine, even with Esme Prince’s presence there. Many fans had been feeling that Trina and Spencer’s relationship was falling by the wayside for more focus on Josslyn Jacks and Cameron Webber, but in the end, fans were disappointed as Trina seemed to be the odd character out and Josslyn and Cameron’s relationship became the focal point after their underage drinking game.
Many fans were not happy about how the cabin trip storyline played out, and some accused the plotline of having racial undertones. “Maybe this is what whyte friends do … not Black girlfriends!,” wrote one fan on twitter. “That’s why we say they need Black writers and Trina needs more POC friends!”
Another twitter user concurred, pointing out that the “General Hospital” writing team may benefit from more people of color. “Trina needs some Black and brown friends. And some Black and brown writers.”
