    There isn’t and never was a “one spell and one cantrip per turn” rule.

    IF you cast a bonus action spell, THEN you can can only cast a cantrip with your action. If you don’t cast a bonus action spell, then that rule doesn’t say anything and there aren’t any restrictions.

    So you can cast a spell using your action, counterspell a counterspell with your reaction, then action surge to cast another spell with your second action all without an issue. As long as you don’t cast a spell using your bonus action, you’re golden.
