Odontocidium Cativante "Pacific Sun Spots" Question.....

I'm a newbie with orchids and had the opportunity to purchase 2 Odontocidium orchids that were post blooming. One of the plants still has a green spike on it which seems to have new growth coming from one of the nodes on the spike. My question is......can this new growth actually be another branch for future buds/blossoms coming from the spike? Or am I being naively "hopeful"?
I look forward to being given any information about this and if it not an actual new growth for blossoms, should I remove the spike?
I'm sorry for the quality of the photos....."and" that they are sideways. At this time I do not know how to turn them. I hope they are good enough to give you an idea as to what I am asking.

I think the likelihood of more flowers from this spike is minimal, but there is no harm in leaving the spike and seeing what develops. It won't affect this healthy vigorous plant in any way. Oncostele Catatante is a great choice for a newbie.
