GH’s Marcus Coloma On Nikolas and Ava’s Relationship: “It’s So Complicated Between Them.”

Photo: ABC

This week on General Hospital, things take a turn for Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma) when his son Spencer (Nicolas Bechtel), finally communicates with him and it could force the dark prince to make a decision as to just what his relationship truly is about with Ava Jerome (Maura West).

According to a preview in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Spencer wants Nikolas to divorce Ava, in order to allow his dad to come back into his life.

But according to Coloma, it’s not so easy when Nik tells Ava about Spencer’s request. “They get into a fight that is very contentious,” Marcus shares.  Then he adds, “It’s so complicated between them. I don’t know if she actually has love for Nikolas, or if she’s just genuinely after his money and the house.   And it’s the same with Nikolas.  I think it’s kind of about the money for him, but there’s also a deeper connection between Ava and Nikolas.”

So, in this game of cat and mouse between Nikolas and Ava, it appears to be winner take all for that Cassadine fortune, no matter what the cost.  But in the process, what will happen to Spencer and Nikolas’ relationship?

Through their greed, will Ava and Nikolas be drawn romantically to each other and this becomes more of a love-match that neither of them saw coming no matter how much they protest?

Share your thoughts below. What do you think should happen in the relationship between Nikolas and Ava?

AGREED. I loved Tyler Christopher, and I really liked Nick Stabile. I just can’t take this one seriously.

It should end IMMEDIATELY. Shouldn’t have happened in the first place. Ava has a daughter who would have been more suited for Nikolas. Ava could be his MOTHER, for heaven’s sake! She seems a contemporary of Laura, Nik’s mother.

ouch, for the record Maura West is only 6yrs older the Marcus Coloma, I know people think he’s to young for the role, but he’s not and if were gonna do math technically Genie Francis is only probably around 15 years older so she could be his teenage mom, more so then Tyler Christopher who is older then Marcus, but all that shouldn’t matter anyways because usually the actors always often enough play younger then their actual age, so my long point is, I only see this complain about age with the female characters if they’re older then their male… Read more »

Nancy…lol….if you follow the timeline of the show….Nikolas came on in 1996 as a 16 year old. In real time…that’s 24 years ago. So Nioklas is easily 40. From what we know of Kiki’s age….and the Ryan’s Hope tie in with Delia as Ava’s mother…..Ava is approximately 46…give or take. She looks older than Liz…Nikolas etc……because she plays a harder, darker character. We have fond memories of Lucky, Liz, and Nik as teens and tend to still think of them that way, but they are all people in their 40’s. Ava is in no way a contemporary of Laura s…Maura… Read more »

I know all that of course, but you also know that GH “twists” time; I’m talking and I’m talking about how that plays into the verisimilitude of the story line and the character. The situation has to convey that semblance of believability to the viewer or “all is lost.” 🙂

I ADORE nu Nic and love the chemistry begween the two! When he whispers in her ear..stands beside her or near her…the chemistry is palpable through the screen! I’m so hoping GH has them realize their love for each orher. It’s obvious Ava’s into him…surprised the actor doesn’t realize that.

I like Nikolas and Ava together. There’s untapped potential for these two to fight and love in love in the old-fashion Hollywood movie way. This letter from Spencer ~ haven’t seen that episode yet ~ but I find it hard to imagine Spencer actually writing such a letter in order to allow his father back in his life. Something just doesn’t ring true. I guess I’ll have to watch it and see, but I’m doubtful.

I’m doubtful to but it will be interesting how they’re gonna have it play out. I say this because Ava does care for Spencer, so if she refuses then what does that mean?

Suddenly, Nikolas was revealed to be alive to everyone in town, then shoved right to the back burner.

Like others mentioned, not sure the spark is there with him & Ava. And Maura West has chemistry with everyone/everything.

GH Faves Finola Hughes, Ian Buchanan, Brooklyn Rae Silzer, Marc Anthony Samuel In New IGTV Series, ‘Enter Exit’

This week, General Hospital’s Finola Hughes (Anna) and some very good friends and acting partners debuted in a new IGTV series, directed by Hughes amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and it’s a thriller! What else would we expect from the woman who plays super spy Anna Devane on the ABC daytime drama series.

The IGTV (Instagam’s longer video application) series is called, Enter Exit, and there are 11 episodes, and the first one dropped on Monday.  It is  written by TV scribe Matt Boren, and also stars some of Port Charles’ longtime favorites that include: Ian Buchanan (Ex-Duke), Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) and Marc Anthony Samuel (Felix).

Hughes told SOD how she was inspired to come up with the concept for the show:  “I started to think about, if you’re in lockdown, what would be a narrative where you could act in a vacuum, basically? I first started thinking about what my character would be — a retired (government) agent. And then there’s some reason that I’m retired. And I started to think about stationary shots and walking into your closeup and all those kinds of things. I left (the rest) with Matt; it was basically, ‘Whatever he writes, we’ll do.’ And I just sort of concentrated on how, feasibly, we could do it.”’

Boren, who has been an ardent viewer of GH from its hey day, shared on working off Hughes seeds of an idea to what Enter Exit is about: “In a sense, it’s a local detective thriller that starts out small — and understandably so as season one takes place during the pandemic. However, what we seed throughout these first 11 mini-episodes hints at a show that longs to be on a much larger, more global scale. We were absolutely inspired by ’80s GH — the WSB, the espionage and larger than life stories that were so thrilling, and through Devane/Scorpio/Lavery/Donnelly/Jones, so grounded. Throw that in with some Killing Eve, X-Files and (this will make sense down the line) Stranger Things, and you have a recipe that might be pages away in our cookbook.”

Now check out episode 1 below featuring Hughes and Silzer and make sure to follow Finola’s IG account for all-new installments of Enter Exit.

So, what do you think about the concept of the series? Excited to see more? Let us know via the comment section.
