If you have not watched Monday’s episode of General Hospital, do not read any further. If you have … read on!
In must-see performances by the always riveting Daytime Emmy-winning Maura West (Ava) and her scene partner GH stalwart Kin Shriner (Scott), the audience was in for a treat and quite the ride when Denise DeMuccio AKA Ava Jerome took the stand during the Silas Clay murder trial.
With Scott’s son, Franco (Roger Howarth) up for the murder rap, good ole dad was going to do all he can so that Franco would not rot in prison. He received a little, or shall we say, big assist from none other than Dr. Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati), and some very valuable DNA from a drinking glass!
With Denise on the stand, Scott went in for the kill while already getting her to tip that she is really Ava Jerome, when he said to her: “You were indifferent to your daughter’s feelings. You didn’t care about her tears, her pain, her grief!” Denise now speaking as Ava says, “That’s not true!” Then in the key moments, Scott broke down Denise AKA Ava so much so that she screamed out in tears and anguish! After Ava started to crack that everything she did and risked to come back to Port Charles was for her two daughters: Kiki (Hayley) and baby Avery, Scott asked “Who came back? I need verbal confirmation here. Who came back for those girls? Was it Denise DeMuccio … or was it Ava Jerome?” And then came the admission when West exclaimed: “Ava, damn it! I’m Ava Jerome!”
And with that … Kiki is shocked. Morgan (Bryan Craig) looks to have nothing to say at all about it. Next, Ric (Rick Hearst) gets Ava arrested for the murder of Connie Falconeri. However before she was cuffed and while on the stand, Ava kicked arch-nemesis Nina (Michelle Stafford) to the curb by showing the incriminating photo of Nina holding a knife over Silas’ dead body.
