You're right, the plot_trigger() function should probably return the
created figure.. but with a bit of matplotlib you can easily grab the
last figure created and work around this obspy API mishap.. try this:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
for ... in ...:
    plot_trigger(..., show=False)
    fig = plt.gcf()
