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.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
