'GH' Ava Jerome Murder Mystery: Who Are the Suspects?

‘GH’ Ava Jerome Murder Mystery: Who Are the Suspects?

Ava Jerome has been a notorious figure in Port Charles since her arrival in 2013. Having already cheated death once, fans of General Hospital (GH) are speculating about another potential twist in her story, predicting a murder mystery. Here are the latest fan theories and guesses on who might be behind her possible demise.

Despite her character’s villainy, Maura West, who plays Ava Jerome, remains a beloved figure among GH fans. Many fondly remember her as Carly Tenney from the now-defunct CBS soap As The World Turns, where she played the complex character from 1995 to 2010. Following that, West had a brief stint as Diane Jenkins on The Young and the Restless before finding a long-term home on General Hospital as Ava Jerome, the daughter of the late mob boss Victor Jerome.

GH enthusiasts are buzzing with speculation that the show might be gearing up to kill off Ava Jerome in a classic whodunit storyline. This raised the question: Is Maura West leaving the show after a decade in the role? Journalist Michael Fairman directly addressed these rumors with Maura West at the Emmys, but in true soap star form, she played coy, saying, “You’ll have to watch and see what happens. That’s all I can tell you.”

So, why do fans believe Ava Jerome’s days might be numbered? Recently, Ava has reverted to her devious ways, especially amid her heated custody battle with Sonny Corinthos, played by Maurice Benard. A mysterious antagonist named Pikeman has been tampering with Sonny’s bipolar medications, leading to erratic behavior. Despite knowing the truth about the pills, Ava has chosen to keep Sonny in the dark.

Additionally, Ava leaked a recording of Natalia making homophobic comments targeting her daughter’s relationship with Kristina and the LGBTQ+ community. This move has intensified the animosity directed at Ava, rather than at the person who made the offensive remarks.

Given the escalating list of enemies Ava is accumulating, GH fans are convinced that the character will be killed off, igniting a murder mystery that will dominate future episodes.

In the world of soap operas, casting changes can happen abruptly. For instance, Michael Easton’s departure from General Hospital was announced just a day before his final appearance on the show earlier this month. If Maura West were to exit as part of a murder mystery involving Ava Jerome, it’s unlikely the network would spoil that plot twist ahead of time.

Convinced of Ava’s impending death, fans have speculated on the potential suspects. Discussions on Reddit have pointed to several characters who might have a motive. The most obvious suspect according to many fans is Sonny, given his recent unstable behavior and the custody battle.

Other Redditors have shared their own theories, suggesting suspects like Nina, Alexis, Christina, Blaze, the Deception Ladies, Natalia, and the recently fired editor. There’s also a theory that Ava might fake her death and frame Sonny or another of her numerous enemies.
