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?

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.

maura’s got sexy chem with everyone but these writers are lost.Nik isn’t written as strong maybe try nik & jordan while curtis & ava bond fighting off cyrus.I loved the other versions on nava, but ava’s too much fun to be with gloomy Nik.A simpler woman like Jordan fits him now.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Port Charles Learns a Bomb Caused the Explosion as Lives are Forever Changed

This week’s General Hospital has reminded us all of why we love daytime drama and why GH possesses some of the finest performers in the genre.

Wednesday’s episode featured several emotionally-charged and gut-wrenching moments as loved ones find out the fate of several people in crisis, or have to deliver terrible news in the wake of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib, which already had taken the lives of Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Dustin (Mark Lawson).

Courtesy/ABC

As we begin, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) has a passed-out Lulu (Emme Rylan) in his arms and brings her to Portia (Brook Kerr), who sends her for tests.  And in true soap opera fashion, just as Lulu was presumably going to tell Dane she still loved him and wanted him back (following Dustin’s death) … he never heard what she had to say.

 

Laura (Genie Francis) fills in Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that Dev did not make it, and then Liz decides to tell her son, Cameron (William Lipton) the heartbreaking news while he is recovering from his injuries.  When she does, Cam is overcome and devastated as his mother holds him in her arms.  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is filling-in Trina (Sydney Mikayla) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) about Dev’s untimely death.

Later, with Laura present, Portia tells Lulu’s loved ones that she has a cerebral contusion, and that there is a a traumatic brain injury which has caused swelling on the brain.  Laura and Dante look on devastated.  Portia then says they have already rushed Lulu to urgent surgery.

Julian (William deVry) is with Ava (Maura West) at Wyndemere.  She is attempting to hide him there, while he figures out his next step after planting the bomb.  However, Jason (Steve Burton) shows up looking for Julian now that Sonny found out that a bomb caused the explosion that ravaged the Floating Rib.  From that point on calls are made to ensure Sonny’s family is protected as a mob war is about to go down. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason believe all roads lead back to Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober).

Jason leaves Wyndemere before spotting Julian; leaving a distraught Ava to come down hard on her brother … he has two choices…  leave Port Charles, which she will help him do, or stay, and if he stays, she will not help him or be a part of his life.  While they are discussing his next move, they learn Lulu is now in critical condition from the bomb.  Ava tells Julian in no uncertain terms that everything he has done has come with a cost.  Jason shows up at the Corinthos home where Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is not happy about any of this, finds out along with Carl,y that Jason believes he was the target at the Floating Rib.

As Liz is struggling to hold it together with Franco (Roger Howath) having brain surgery, she speaks with Scott (Kin Shriner), who did not know of his son’s tumor.  She shares with Franco’s dad that Franco is worried he will wake up a very different person.  Liz is told Franco is out of surgery, and is in tears over his hospital bed.  She prays he will be alright and Franco wakes up!

Portia tells Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Laura, and Dante that Lulu is out of surgery but in a coma, which Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) points out is normal in these situations. Dante goes to sit by Lulu’s bedside and begs her to wake up.

Courtesy/ABC

Then, in devastating news for Laura, Lucas (Matt Trudeau) gives her the real 411 on Lulu.  He tells Laura that Lulu’s brain started swelling the minute she hit her head at the Floating Rib, and that her injury got worse the longer she was not checked out.  Laura achingly realizes Lulu was so worried about Dustin that she never was immediately checked out for head trauma.  Lucas lets Laura know that Lulu’s recovery could take a very long time, if she recovers at all.

Heart-tugging performances throughout the stellar episode were given by: Dominic Zamprogna, Genie Francis, William Lipton, Rebecca Herbst, and Maura West in very intense and dramatic scenes.

So, what have you thought of this week’s episodes of GH? The fate of Lulu? The performances from yesterday’s airshow? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Mark Lawson Shares Heartfelt Sentiments As He Exits General Hospital

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

So, are you sad that Dustin is no longer on the canvas in Port Charles? Will you miss Mark in the role? Comment below.
