We all know Denise DeMuccio is on borrowed time. “General Hospital” spoilers reveal that Ava Jerome (Maura West) will be revealed to be alive in coming weeks, but who will it be that figures out her dirty secret? And how long will Ava survive after Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) finds out? Here’s a look at who could ferret out Denise’s true identity, how long she can keep it secret and what will happen when the messy truth comes out.
Now that Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) handed baby Avery back to Sonny, “Denise” will have no choice but to go toe to toe with nemesis Sonny if she wants face time with her daughter. But since seeing the kid is the whole reason Ava put on her Denise disguise – and because the woman has balls of steel – she’ll march over to the Corinthos place to see her baby. Sonny doesn’t believe she’s not Ava already and he’ll be on the look out for any sign that indicates she’s really Ava.
Plus, now that Morgan Corinthos (Bryan Craig) confessed to Sonny that he’s having a hard time controlling himself around Denise, Sonny will have animosity towards both personas since both Ava and Denise are getting intimate with his youngest son. Since GH writers have Denise whispering to baby Avery that she’s her mom, no doubt Sonny could be the one to ferret out the truth. But would Sonny off her? Ava is the mother of one of his kids and the lover of another, so maybe not.
Morgan and Denise will be unable to keep their hands off each other and “General Hospital” spoilers reveal those two will be doing the horizontal mambo soon. It makes sense that Morgan would realize that Denise has the exact body as Ava down to every freckle and birth mark. The twin thing can’t account for exactness of that magnitude. To be fair, she’s had a baby since they last got jiggy, but still, seems like Morgan should have some sort of naked deja vu and realize she’s Ava.
Morgan is highly likely to keep Ava’s secret if he’s the one who finds out first since he loves her and won’t want his dad to kill her. But let’s be honest, Morgan’s kind of a moron – a handsome idiot to be sure, but not the sharpest tool in the shed – so he would likely let it slip in casual conversation that Ava’s back and he’s bedding her again. What’s exciting is that once Morgan knows his love Ava is alive, she may also confirm that he’s baby Avery’s daddy, not Sonny
How cool would it be for Ava, Morgan and their daughter Avery to set up house together and then retake the Jerome territory that Julian Jerome (William deVry) recently abandoned? Kiki Jerome (Hayley Erin) will not be the one to figure out Denise is Ava. That kid is clueless. She could literally walk in on Morgan on top of Denise and tell him it’s great how well they’re getting along. In terms of equivalently low IQs, Kiki and Morgan are a good match.
Franco (Roger Howarth) won’t have to figure out that Ava is Denise because if certain “General Hospital” rumors are true, Ava will fess up to Franco. Franco can keep a secret, there’s no doubt about that, up until he wants to blackmail you over it. Franco may need to leverage his knowledge to get Ava to protect him from Julian once her brother finds out that Franco was blackmailing Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero) and decides to blame him for the early labor and resulting “death” of his son.
What would be really fun is if it’s crazy Nina Clay (Michelle Stafford) that figures out that Denise is Ava. Problem is, if Nina stood in the middle of Port Charles and shouted to one and all that Denise DeMuccio is Ava Jerome, no one would believe her because she’s the town’s resident nut case (Franco notwithstanding). Of course, her rat fink hubby Ric Lansing (Rick Hearst) might think it has a ring of truth and try to leverage the info to his benefit.
“General Hospital” spoilers reveal that it will be a few weeks yet before Denise’s true identity is revealed. Fingers crossed that Jake Doe (Billy Miller) will find out who he is before everyone finds out who Denise is – after all, how many identity plots should we have to endure at once?
