Billy and Vance leave, and Nikki tells Nick to go to Victoria while she deals with Victor. At the police station, Vance tells Victoria, Billy and Nick that Victoria is the only defendant named in the charges. Victoria can’t believe that Victor would do this to her but Nick and Billy are certain. Later, as Victoria is sent off to have her mug shot taken, Chloe comes in crying and Billy doubly freaked out thinking something happened to Delia. Chloe tells him that Chance is dead and Billy is stunned. At Gloworm, Jack tells Ashley that Victor may have done them a huge favor when he had Victoria arrested and now they may be able to get their hands on Beauty of Nature.

Meanwhile, Nick stops by Gloworm to tell everyone about Chance. Heather confronts Ronan about what really happened at the warehouse but he asks her if he should have died for Chance, saying it was self-defense. He asks her if she would died for him and Heather answers yes. Meanwhile, Nina rushes into the Chancellor estate and everyone sees her state and Paul is forced to tell them that Chance died while trying to break up a drug deal. Phillip asks Paul to let her go to Nina as the rest of the family tries to digest the news. Christine arrives to talk to Nina but Nina refuses to see her. Billy supports Chloe until she decides to move off to talk to Owen who tells Heather he is prosecuting Ronan himself. Victoria arrives and asks what is going on and Billy tells her about Chance. They try to lighten the mood by closing their vows with a kiss. Meanwhile, Christine tries to explain her actions to Paul but he tells her that Nina needed the truth from her and now it is too late.

After the events of the day, Nick and Phyllis manage to come to an understanding about their relationship and Summer.  As the dirty cops celebrate Chance’s demise, Owen isn’t as thrilled while Ronan is still around.

Chris is heartbroken for her friend and her part in causing her pain.

Cane and Lily have their hands full with the twins but when Jill calls Cane with the news about Chance’s death, Cane tells her that he will be right there. Meanwhile, Christine encourages Heather to be there to support Nina. As Nina tries to deal with Chance’s death, Phillip tells her that someone from the military is there to see her. Later, Cane arrives at the mansion to give his condolences and while they are talking, Phillip urges Cane to stay away from Australia for his family’s sake as much as his own. Abby calls Jack and starts to panic thinking about what Victor will do to her after sending Victoria to jail just for daring to get married. Meanwhile, Victor tells his banker that he wants Abby’s trust dismantled by the end of the day. Billy picks Victoria up at the police station and Victoria tells him that she needs to face Victor alone, even after Billy tells her about his confrontation with Victor last night. Later, Victor promises Victoria that he will make the charges go away as long as she agrees to end her marriage to Billy. Meanwhile, Abby literally has a panic attack while meeting with Jack about going up against Victor but Jack manages to calm her down and gets her to agree to continue with the lawsuit.

Daniel stops by to check on Lily and the twins and they end up chatting about Abby and Cane and how unexpectedly great life is right now. Later, Daniel tries to make Abby see that Victor won’t back down just because a member of his family could end getting hurt in the cross-fire between him and Jack. When Owen and a bunch of cops show up at the Chancellor Mansion with a search warrant Nina refuses to let them go through Chance’s things, blaming him for Chance’s death. Owen tells Nina and Chance’s family that he is investigating Chance’s involvement in the drug ring and he and cops move to Chance’s room. Christine arrives and although Paul doesn’t want to see her, Phillip embraces her. Nina and Jill are crushed and furious as they watch the police rip through Chance’s things so callously. Victoria refuses to leave the man she loves and Victor shows her a dossier on Billy’s past but Victoria tells him she knows all about it and that Victor is no longer welcome in her life or the life of her children. Later, Jill goes to see Victor and tells him that she has lost Chance and she doesn’t want to lose Billy too and asks him if he really wants to risk losing his daughter and his grandchild for good. After Jill leaves, Victor makes a call and says that he was responsible for the bribe, not Victoria. Meanwhile, Victoria and Billy happily get their wedding band tattoos. Phillip doesn’t blame Chris because he understands what a burden secrets can be but tells her that she can’t go back and change things either and she can’t bring Chance back. Meanwhile, Nina battles with what to do about Chance’s burial. Cane tells Lily about Phillip trying to stay strong for his family and asks her about avoiding going to Australia for a while but lies to Lily about the real reason. However, Lily and Cane are unaware that there is someone watching them. Later, Heather stops by to see Nina, Paul and Phillip that she was reinstated and that she asked to prosecute Ronan herself. Nina says that she hopes Ronan goes to prison for the rest of his life. Owen comes in and tells them that he may have found a link to Ronan and Chance and the drug ring and they are all outraged. Meanwhile, Christine confronts Ronan. Victor is stunned when his banker tells him that Vance has an injunction barring Victor from dismantling Abby’s trust. Meanwhile, Abby tells Jack that she wants out of the lawsuit.

While getting ready for Chance’s wake Victoria gets a shocking phone call from Vance. At the ranch, Victor tells Nikki that he called the D.O.J. and told that he was responsible for the Japanese bribe. Nikki hopes that it isn’t too late to reunite their family. Meanwhile, Abby tells Jack that she can’t go up against Victor because Jack can’t guarantee they will win and Victor is ruthless. Later, Meggie continues to try and spike Nikki’s drinks. In front of Tucker, Neil and Sofia have yet another argument about work just as Malcolm arrives. Tucker tells Neil and Sofia that he has a project in New Orleans that he would like them to work on together, although it is clear they don’t get along. After Tucker leaves, Malcolm tells Neil that if he has a problem with him to address it with Malcolm and not to use Sofia again. Later, Sofia asks Malcolm to let her fight her own battles. Later, Sofia asks Neil for some middle ground and a chance to find solutions to problems he finds in her work before he takes it Tucker. Neil agrees and wonders if they might even one day be friends. Kevin tries to comfort a distraught Chloe over Chance’s death, pushing her to go to his wake. Meanwhile, Nina and Jill have a moment of closeness as Jill praises the way Nina raised Chance. At Chance’s wake, Billy and Victoria are touched when Jill welcomes Victoria to the family graciously. Chloe arrives with Kevin and makes a beeline for Delia when she sees her with Billy and Victoria and Chloe chastises them, snatching Delia out of Billy’s arms. Billy wonders what is going on with Chloe but Victoria understands that Chloe doesn’t want Delia getting attached to another person or trying to replace Chance. Kevin tells Chloe to take a moment but it’s clear that Chloe is on the verge of losing it. Victor and Nikki arrive at the Chancellor estate and Victor pulls Victoria aside, expecting her to be grateful for him stepping up with the D.O.J. but Victoria tells him too little too late. However, Abby plays her cards perfectly with Victor when she tells him that she dropped the lawsuit and she hopes that they can work it out between them, which doesn’t make Jack the least bit happy. Later, Jack tells Tucker that they lost Abby in their fight for B of N and Tucker warns Jack that he will lose Jabot if he doesn’t deliver. Nearby, Nina thanks a numb Chloe for everything she brought into Chance’s life and Kay notices that Nikki is jonsing for a drink. Victoria and Billy are both surprised when Tucker offers Victoria a job with him a McCall Industries. As everyone toasts to Chance, Kay is struck by a dizzy spell and everyone hovers around her concerned. Meanwhile, Kevin keeps pushing Chloe to vent her angry, to grieve her loss but she tells Kevin to shove it and leaves. Later, Nikki nearly takes a drink back at the ranch, but instead asks Meggie for more iced tea, unaware that the iced tea is spiked anyway.

On the day of Chance’s funeral, Kevin is surprised by how “together” Chloe seems to be. Meanwhile, Nina remembers the first time she held Chance and breaks down as Paul holds her. Her grief turns to anger as she searches for answers. Downstairs, it means a lot to Kay when both Brock and Tucker show up to support her. Later, Christine and Ronan have a cryptic conversation. Meanwhile, Sgt. Goldman arrives to escort Nina and Phillip to the church but Nina isn’t ready to bury her son. J.T. is furious when he overhears Victoria and Billy talking about their baby. Billy tells them that Victor had the charges dropped against Victoria but J.T. warns that they will never be free of Victor. Ashley is thrilled when Abby tells her that she dropped the lawsuit against Victor but Jack, on the other hand, tries to make Abby see that she needs to take what is hers before it is too late.

At the church, as everyone is arriving, Chloe walks in with Kevin and sees a distraught Heather and Chloe immediately goes on the attack. Paul and Kay step in to break up the fight and Kevin is forced to take Chloe outside. Phillip, Kay and Jill give very touching eulogies as they reminisce about the kind of man Chance was. Sgt. Goldman presents Nina with Chance’s American flag and Chance is given the proper Military service. As everyone is leaving and passing the casket they drop a rose. Nina is horrified when she sees that not only did Christine come to the funeral but Ronan is out of jail and she showed up as well. As everyone starts attacking Chris for bringing Ronan, Chris stops them, saying that she released him and Ronan flashes his F.B.I. and orders the other F.B.I. agents to arrest Owen, Meeks and the other dirty cops. Ronan tells them that Chance was wearing a wire and they have plenty of evidence on them to send them all to prison. Everyone else stands there shocked by this twist of fate. At the Chancellor estate, Tucker asks Neil if he worked things out with Malcolm and Sofia and Neil assures him that it won’t interfere with business again. Meanwhile, Nikki asks Victoria to try and reach out to Victor but Victoria refuses and when Jack approaches Nikki decides to leave. Jack asks Victoria if she has made any decisions about Tucker’s job offer with Jabot and Victoria tells him that she is still undecided. Nina is furious with Christine for turning her son’s funeral into a circus but Chris tries to explain, saying that this is what Chance wanted. Nina, however, isn’t interested in listening and she tells Chris to get away from Chance’s casket. Meanwhile, Kay suddenly collapses at the mansion when Tucker is asking her about her health.

In the chaos at the church, Chris tries to explain herself to the awaiting mob but Paul intervenes for Nina and Phillip and asks Chris to do what she has to but leave as soon as possible. Outside, Ronan asks Heather and Chloe to hear him out. Nearby, Jill gets a call from Murphy and tells Brock they need to get to the hospital because Kay collapsed. Ronan tells Chloe and Heather that this is what Chance wanted and he tried to protect Chance but in the end he failed. When it’s obvious that neither woman is going to forgive his actions he leaves. Chloe bites Heather’s head off when she tries to glorify Chance’s death. Later, Chris pleads with Paul and Nina to hear her out because there are things they need to know. At the hospital, Murphy and Nikki are relieved when Kay wakes up and is seemingly her old self but Murphy refuses to take any chances and won’t let Tucker in to see her when Murphy believes Tucker was arguing with her before she collapsed. Later, Nikki sits by a sleeping Kay and asks her to stay with them, telling her that she is struggling with her sobriety and she needs her best friend and sponsor now more than ever. Jill and Brock arrive and Jill is shaken to the core after everything she has lost recently. Heather confronts Owen at the police station and Owen tries to convince her that Ronan is lying but Heather won’t buy another word out of his mouth. Meanwhile, Kevin helps Chloe realize that everything Ronan did was for the case and that he may actually be a good guy. However, in the end, Chloe will always see him the man who killed Chance. Kay asks for some time alone with Murphy and when they finally get it she tells them they need to put her affairs in order, just in case. Kay asks Murphy to make sure that if it ever came down to it, he would never leave her on machines to prolong her life but Murphy is uncomfortable with the idea of pulling the plug and losing her. Meanwhile, Brock tells Tucker that he isn’t going to see Kay and Tucker doesn’t like the idea of being left out in the cold. Later, Jill and Nikki get into an argument over their competiveness regarding Kay and Nikki makes a thoughtless remark about Chance’s death and is immediately ashamed of herself and decides to leave. After agreeing to meet with Christine, Nina and Phillip are taken to a deserted road and Nina becomes impatient when it looks like Chris isn’t showing up. Phillip however sees car lights pull up and they brace themselves for whatever Chris has to tell them. Nina is none too happy, however, when Ronan is there with Chris but Nina and Phillip are blindsided when Chance steps out of the car with them. Meanwhile, Heather continues to beat herself up over trusting Owen. Later, Heather is caught off guard when Attorney General arrives and appoints her the interim District Attorney and Heather and Paul decide their first point of business is taking down Owen. Nina is overcome with relief that Chance is alive but is crushed again when they tell her that Chance is going into witness protection and this may be the last time she ever sees him. Nikki arrives home and goes straight to the liquor cabinet and decides to finally take a drink. Meanwhile, Kay’s doctor tells her that she can go home soon since she merely collapsed from dehydration and exhaustion.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’ As Ava Learns The Devastating Truth About Ryan

Last week on key episodes of General Hospital, the truth was finally out that Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) was masquerading as his twin brother, Dr. Kevin Collins, and that Ava Jerome (Maura West) was an unsuspecting victim in all of this.  As the week began, Ryan and Ava had gone over the bridge, but Jason (Steve Burton) was able to save Ava and pull her back to the bridge, and that set the stage for a powerhouse series of performances by West.

On the bridge with Laura (Genie Francis), who is trying to make Ava comprehend the harsh realization that she has been with a serial killer this entire time, and not the real Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), Ava doesn’t believe what Laura is attempting to tell her.  She believes that Kevin had a mental breakdown.  Laura explains to Ava that Kevin is at General Hospital, while Ryan has been posing as him.  In Ava’s version of the situation, she thinks the switcheroo happened in the last 48 hours when Ryan wanted to whisk her away to be married.  Laura then tells Ava that Ryan switched places with Kevin months ago, and she has never been with Kevin.

It is a horrifying reality for Ava to grapple with as she insists that Kevin loves her.  However, moment by moment, Ava can no longer deny that harsh truth that is right in front of her.  She had sex with her daughter Kiki’s murderer the night she was killed, and she has been sleeping with the wrong man this entire time.

In heartbreaking scenes, Maura, along with another wonderful performance by GH icon, Genie Francis, illustrated the raw pain and devastation of a woman who has been so blindsided by love, violated, and deceived all at the same time.  The scene where Laura holds Ava on the bridge as she collapses with anguish was soap gold.  But, never underestimate Ava Jerome!  You know she will get her payback.

In another episode, a now drunken Ava heads to the GH to see Kevin for herself, but finds Franco (Roger Howarth).  First, she blames Franco, then he makes her understand that it was Ryan who murdered people and deceived everyone.  He was just helping the PCPD snuff out the serial killer.   She tells Franco that Ryan made her feel like a goddess and that he worshipped her and helped her in her time of need following Kiki’s death.  Ava tells Franco that she hopes Ryan’s still alive so she can kill him herself!

And still in another moment, Ava runs into the real Kevin in the hospital hallway.  Ava loses her grip and slaps him in the face accusing him of killing her daughter.  Scott (Kin Shriner) pulls her off Kevin, and tries to get her to understand that Kevin was in surgery at GH when she was with Ryan in Niagara Falls.

Sitting down with Ava, Kevin apologizes for what Ryan did to her and everyone else.  Kevin thinks she needs to speak with a therapist, but not him and he will recommend someone.  Later, alone in the hospital corridor, Ava sees a poster of Kevin Collins and rips it to shreds as Scott comes by to calm her down. She sinks to the floor in sorrow over Kiki’s death, and how she ended up falling for Ryan.

Scene after scene, moment after moment, you can’t get better than West.  Ava is a delicious complex character, who has been so unlucky at love, is so flawed, and at times so revenge-filled, and yet in the hands of the oh-so-skilled and talented Maura West, she has humanized Ava, so that we can’t help root for her to get back on her feet after she falls so far down, so we can witness what trouble she will stir up next.   All of this to say: Michael Fairman TV names GH’s Maura West the ‘Power Performance of the Week”.

So, what did you think about of Maura’s performances on  GH? Did Ava finding out the truth about Ryan live up to everything you hoped it would be? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Catches On To Ryan Leading To Dire Consequences

All of Ryan Chamberlain’s (Jon Lindstrom) recent machinations may come back to bite him this week on General Hospital. as all roads will lead to dramatic episodes of the ABC daytime drama series.  As GH Co-Head Writer, Shelly Altman tells Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now: “This is a can’t-miss week. So many trains are running down tracks that are certain (to collide) with a big bang.”

Viewers were left with an exciting cliffhanger on Friday’s episode which saw Carly (Laura Wright) standing behind Ryan in the parking lot now knowing that “Kevin” is Ryan.  How did we get here?  Earlier, after Carly finds Jason released from the hospital, she tells him about Franco’s (Roger Howarth) interview with Lulu (Emme Rylan) and that Franco called Ryan Chamberlain by the name of Tom Wilson.  She recalls the man in the room next to her when she was locked away at Ferncliff was named Wilson.  Jason (Steve Burton) begs her to stay away from the mental facility and to not put her unborn baby at risk.

Ava (Maura West) comes upon “Kevin” being bandaged at GH up after he claims Franco injured him when he went to confront him following Franco’s confessional interview of the serial murders, which was a set-up by Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) to lure the real killer out   After dancing around why he went to see Franco and “risking” his life, he asks Ava to run away with him tonight to Canada to get married.

Mac (John J. York) and Felicia (Kristina Wagner) try to help jog Lulu’s foggy memory about the night she was stabbed and attacked, and remember discovering there were two more potential victims in Ryan’s killing spree making it 9, when there used to be only 7.   Felicia asks Lulu how she learned about these new victims, and she explains Laura (Genie Francis) saw a list of Ryan’s victims in Kevin’s office.  Everyone wonders how Kevin got the names.  C’mon Lulu, get it together and remember what happened to you, the answer is right in front of you!

Liz (Rebecca Herbst) is stunned when Franco appears at her door, stabbed and bleeding out.  After tending to his wounds, she calls the paramedics, but before he passes out he tells her he did not do commit the murders, but Ryan Chamberlain did.   When Chase (Josh Swickard) arrives on the scene she relates what Franco said to him, but passes it off as Franco being delirious from his stabbing.

After Ava agrees to marry “Kevin”, she heads home to pack, but tells him she’ll meet him back at GH.  On her way to the elevator, Ava runs into Carly and announces to her enemy that she and “Kevin” are getting married, and exits.  Then, Mac and Felicia arrive as Carly thinks this is too insane to be true, and Felicia thinks Ava must be lying.

In Jordan’s hospital room, Nina (Michelle Stafford) goes through Jordan’s purse in order to get her keys so she can get Curtis (Donnell Turner) some new clothes while he is waiting for his wife to come out of surgery. However, she sees Jordan’s phone has a voice mail marked “urgent” and hands it to Curtis who looks very distressed.

In the hospital garage, Ryan stores his lock box containing all of his victim’s licenses in the trunk of his car.  When he closes the trunk, Carly is standing behind him.   Showdown time!
