For those who have been anxiously awaiting the first encounter between Daytime Emmy winning powerhouses, Maura West (Ava) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) in their roles as Ava Jerome and Nina Clay on General Hospital, today’s episode of the ABC soap opera held the long-awaited moment!
The set-up has Ava run into a “wheelchair” bound Nina, which sets up the repartee and the realization for Ava that this is Nina Clay who she is chatting with. Nina lays into Ava about the photos of her having sex with her husband Silas (Michael Easton), and then becoming pregnant with his child, Kiki (Kristen Alderson)! Ava then offers her brand of an apology for her actions many years ago, and as more verbal blows and insults are hurled at one another, Nina brings up Ava’s current paternity pickle, and then goes into her baby obsession mode, and even puts her hand on Ava’s tummy, much to the dismay of Ava. And that is just a few of the highlights of their clash!
Kudos to the incredible Maura West and Michelle Stafford! Having those two in a scene where they play mortal enemies was simply soap heaven for many a soap fan! And major kudos to the GH writing team for the snappy, treacherous, yet at times humorous dialog fit for these two talents to play.
