Congrats to Maura West (Ava, GH) who was selected as the performer of the week! Click here to learn more--->>
On last week’s General Hospital, Ava Jerome-Cassadine (Maura West) found out that her husband, Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma) cheated on her with Esme Prince (Avery Kristen Pohl). Ava’s marriage to Nikolas has been unconventional to say the least, but there’s no denying they love each other and are each other’s ride or die. However, fans knew that once Ava found out that Nikolas cheated on her, she would go off on him and boy did she! West is a powerhouse performer and she did not disappoint when Ava let Nikolas have it. Ava called Nikolas a weakling, said he disgusts her, and called him stupid for sleeping with a high school graduate who is young enough to be his daughter. West’s delivery of these lines was spot on and captured the betrayal, hurt, disgust, anger, and heartache that Ava was feeling. West also delivered Ava’s sarcastic one-liners perfectly. When Nikolas tried to put his arms around her to console her, Ava recoiled and let Nikolas know that he has touched her for the last time. Ava put Nikolas on notice that she will burn him to the ground; West’s delivery of this line was bone-chilling! Ava also got to confront Esme; a confrontation that has been a long time coming. Ava hasn’t trusted Esme ever since she found out Esme torched her car and stalked her (along with Spencer). She also suspects Esme of framing Trina for the revenge porn video. Sleeping with Nikolas was the last straw. Ava was shocked to learn that Esme knows a lot about her past, but it didn’t stop her from putting her on notice. Esme better watch out! Fans have been waiting for Esme to pay the price for all of her misdeeds and Ava just might be the person to bring her down. Fans can’t wait to see what happens next! Bravo, West!
