2015 Daytime Emmy winner for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, Maura West gave General Hospital fans a shock and a thrill on Friday’s episode of the ABC soap opera when after some time off the canvas, she re-emerged!
The set up – While Julian’s (William deVry) children, Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Lucas (Ryan Carnes), and his niece Kiki (Hayley Erin), along with Julian’s girlfriend Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and Morgan Corinthos (Bryan Craig) were all at Julian’s penthouse to lend their support while he grieved the supposed “death” of his infant son with Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) the doorbell rang! Lucas goes to answer the door just as Julian has informed his loved ones he is getting out of the mob for good. They will no longer have to live their lives under the threat of being harmed.
But the next thing you know in walks a woman with long black hair/wig with quite the thick New Jersey-esque accent who utters the words, “I’m Parched!” That woman happens to be West, whom when we last saw her character of Ava Jerome she was asking Silas (Michael Easton) to help her end her life since since she was dying from cancer.
But it would appear at first glance that Ava is alive and well and kicking, and about to reveal herself to her family! And now that Morgan and Kiki are back in each others bed, it’s quite the interesting time for Kiki’s mom Ava to return, especially since she was once the gal friend to Morgan! The flipside: Could Ava be truly dead, and this is another Jerome relative no one knew about? Or, is Ava just back to claim her daughter from Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and she is going to do this by masquerading as someone else? What do you think is going to happen next?
