GENERAL HOSPITAL: Ava Hits the Sheets with Austin


Friday’s General Hospital brought with it a new lover for Ava (Maura West)!  Not someone exactly new, but if finally pushes La Jerome further towards Austin (Roger Howarth). For soap fans, that means they get to see the potential delicious pairing between Daytime Emmy-winning stars, Maura West and Roger Howarth.

On yesterday’s episode, after Ava and Austin get into a fight, passion ignites, when after he kisses her, she grabs him and kisses him back and they wind up having sex.  Afterwards,  Ava’s frantically trying to make the bed and wants Austin to scadaddle.  When Austin isn’t so ready to get out of bed and make his exit, Ava tells him that they need to put this behind them and pretend it never happened.  She is insisting that what they did was a mistake.

Ava then tells Austin if he ever pulls a stunt like he did with her daughter, Avery, the next body in the stables will be his.  Eventually, Austin makes his exit, and after he leaves, Ava seems happy with herself and definitely into him.


Now the problem becomes, we know that Nikolas is being kept alive somewhere by Mason and who ever he is working for.  What would happen if Ava and Austin fall madly in love, decide to tie the knot, then on their wedding day, Nikolas shows up, busts up the nuptials, and accuses the duo of “murder” and a cover-up? Sounds like a soapy plot to us.

Check out some moments from the aftermath of Ava and Austin’s tryst.

Now, let us know, are you in favor of an Ava and Austin pairing on GH? Comment below.

For some reason this weird scene gave me flashbacks to the Sonny/Ava crypt sex.

For the love of all that’s unholy, let’s hope the end result isn’t the same. The last thing Ava needs is another kid, and the last thing any of us need is another excuse to keep FrAustin around.

It’s a wonderful change of pace for GH to put together two actors who actually have chemistry and can play off each other so perfectly. This tryst has the ingredients to create a power couple. They’re sexy and sassy and can play drama or humor. Bring on #Jolt!


I like it

Maura & Roger are soap gold. I think Ava & Austin aka Jolt are going to be a really entertaining duo.

These two are so hilarious! I wasn’t sure if they would bring the heat, but they delivered for sure! I hope there’s more fun and sexy banter to come for Jolt!

I think he’s honestly concerned about her and did the least devastating thing to help Ava get Pilar fired. Ava pretty much gave him no other option. She shot everything he suggested down! For Austin thinking on his toes, knowing what none of us know about how ruthless Mason is, it was brilliance. He could have told her about taking Avery, but then in his eyes she couldn’t have sold that she was actually concerned. He didn’t know how Ava would react, so he was thinking on his toes, As he goes on his daily jog he sees Avery and Pilar, hangs around and sees Avery walking off. Yeah, what he did was shady and underhanded, but hey, it’s a soap. We want drama, right? And maybe, just MAYBE Avery did just go chasing after balloons…we don’t know, it was OFFSCREEN!!!!

P.S. Roger and Maura are fire onscreen. We needed a #jolt of lightning and of course our favs did NOT disappoint!!!


This scene was so HOT!!! I love Roger and Maura, and have been disappointed lately with the movement of this storyline. Finally, the writers threw us a bone. (Pun intended) 😉

I absolutely adore Roger think he’s an amazing actor. I’ve loved him since One Life to live ,he and Maura wonderful together.

Yes they are! I can’t wait to see what else is on the way. I hope the writers keep this going.

I love both of these actors but for some reason they aren’t clicking romantically yet for me. I liked them better as thorns in each others’ sides back on ATWT. I was hoping some spark would ignite; I liked Ava with Marcus Coloma’s Nikolas. But they are wonderful performers so I’m not FFing their scenes as I do with Darly and Fin/Elizabeth. Those couplings are unbearable!

It was refreshing when the writers gave us a line that echoed the thoughts of many viewers (when Ava mentioned Austin’s failed stories with the Qs and Maxie.) in one line, they effectively reset his character.

Not really projecting much romance between A&A, but I do see them to continue to canoodle in attempting to control each other.

After a year, it’s now time for “Cuz” Mason to actually be shown doing something evil/criminalish than just chatter.

I can’t wait to see who is pulling Mason,’s strings, hope it will be worth all this crap he’s been throwing at Austin and Ava.

It’s time GH put Howarth out to pasture. None of his characters click the way they should and this character of Austin has been thrown into the Q’s and others without jiving. Putting him with Ava is not the right use of a great actress like Maura West!

I believe Ava should have more power and strength and be the vixen we know Maura West can play! Right now she’s like the bullied victim cheering on the new bullied victim of Nina by Carly. Both women have been fiercely bullied by that character and each slink into the background when she approaches.

Ava should not fear her custody arrangement with Sonny all the time because she chooses to go toe to toe with Carly. But that’s the case. Alexis doesn’t have that fear so why do we make Ava?

It’s time that Ava discoveries Julian had a secret Swiss bank account. She is able to access it to discover she is now wealthy beyond belief and can stand tall above Carly.

Ava should be loved and hated but not bullied.,

Never mind putting Howarth out to pasture, he’s right where he needs to be. He’s one of the best and most interesting characters on the show. He just needs the right partner to show his potential. It’s pretty hard to show your best when your partner just acts like a silly twit with no real emotion.

This was the hottest thing to happen on GH in a LONG time. Maura and Roger have crazy chemistry. I’ve wanted them to be paired for years. All the dialogue after the fact was fun and hot too–how he was mentioning the scratches and saying she would sleep pretty soundly. =D =D The way he said it kind of in a cocky way and then her smile afterward. So hot. #Jolt is the pairing I’ve been wanting all along. Kudos and many thanks to the writers who made this happen!!! One of my fav things that’s ever happened on GH.

For some reason this weird scene gave me flashbacks to the Sonny/Ava crypt sex.

I want to start of by saying that I’m a fan of Roger Howarth, so I don’t blame him, I blame the GH writers, and who ever decided to kill off Franco and then create Austin for Roger to play, big mistake, so much history thrown out the window with Franco and the connection he had with Scott and Elisabeth and her kids. It feels like the writers had no plan and just make up things up to see if it will stick. His “storyline” has drag on so long that it’s not interesting. This Mason character also is a snooze fest. It’s so off putting that I wish Austin would just leave town, he had awful chemistry w/ Maxie, he gave up on being a Quatermaine, wish is laughable because almost every other Quatermaine is either a bastard born out of wedlock or adopted, yet this one is not acceptable to them. and whose blackmailing him? why would they not force him to do everything in his power to be in with the Quatermaines? The writing is just a mess with this character and because of that I just feel like my time is wasted in this character.

I can’t make up my mind how I feel about this pair yet. I liked Ava’s friendship with Franco, they played well off each other. I would have liked Austin and Brett together, although a short time it was good. He and Maxi never worked, not even a spark. I just wish Austin played the part more like Franco with his humour and personality.

The actors have no romantic or sexual chemistry, so I have found those scenes awkward. They have always had a friend zone vibe. The character of Austin is a step down for Ava after the hot Prince Nik. Austin seems to try hard to be sexy while Marcus Coloma’s Nik WAS sexy. The story is a mess and her attraction to him after being with Nik isn’t believable.

Kelly Monaco Celebrates 20 Years on GH and Sam’s Evolution: “All the Pieces Don’t Fit Perfectly Yet, But It’s Certainly Not Broken Anymore!”

Sunday, October 1st will mark the 20th anniversary of Kelly Monaco’s debut on General Hospital as Sam McCall.  And as the story goes, when Kelly finished her run on Port Charles as Livvie Locke (2000-2003), and the show had been canceled, the three major networks were all interested in her to join their soaps.

In the end, GH won out and fans of the ABC daytime drama series have been the lucky ones to have Monaco join the A-list cast of the iconic soap. Throughout Sam’s journey in Port Charles, viewers have seen quite the character growth. Sam started on the show as a con and hustler, and bloomed into a bonafide heroine and a private investigator.

Kelly shared with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue, how she viewed the Sam of old, to the Sam of today: “Sam came on to the canvas only having herself and her brother, always taking care of someone, and never being taken care of.  I think the biggest evolution for her is starting from being a really lonely, scared woman and becoming a woman who is still really independent, but is protected by family and friends and love and relationships and loyalty, and she never had that before.”

In a very poetic way, Monaco added on her character’s development: “She came in bent and broken, and I feel like there’s a lot of her that’s still broken, but she’s constantly sort of putting the Rubik’s Cube together. All the pieces don’t fit perfectly, yet, but it’s certainly not broken anymore.”

Throughout Sam’s two decades in Port Charles she has been in love, suffered terrible lost, found family members, had children, and has been involved in some of the most dangerous and criminal cases involving many a villain as she tried to help bring them to justice.

Currently, Sam is involved in a romance with Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna).  Viewers wonder if Lulu ever wakes up out of her coma, would that spell trouble for their relationship, and in turn, give Kelly some great meaty story to work with?

Now, in the comment section below, share your congrats to Kelly for her 20-year-run on GH. Then let us know, what has been your favorite Sam story over the years?
