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

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?

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 counter part, and I find that sad. As for Kiki being more suitable, Kiki was in her 20’s so unless you meant little Avery then their ummm way to young. So there you go.

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 was just in grade school when Genie Francis first started as Laura.

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.” 🙂

Hi Nancy.. 🙂

Marcus Coloma / Nicolas
41
Maura West / Ava
48

7 yrs- That doesn’t even qualify Ava as a Cougar LOL

But– I can’t imagine them having sex, nope..
If, it were to happen then- lucky Ava! 😉

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.

aria

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.

I’m reafy for this story to heat up for this dark & sexy couple.

General Hospital

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

Fans are in for a treat today (Friday, May 22nd) when ABC’s General Hospital airs an encore presentation of one of the finest hours of soap opera in the history of the genre, with its 52nd anniversary episode from April 1, 2015.

In the episode, viewers finally learned what turned Luke (Tony Geary) into Fluke, which has been the on-going story for months; but it all lead up to the shocking reveal, when Luke revisited his past in his broken down childhood home and the demons that haunted him.

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
