New General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Ava Jerome (Maura West) is about to make a gutsy move to save herself and Julian Jerome (William deVry) by leveraging Paul Hornsby’s (Richard Burgi) dirty GH serial killer secret.
Ava’s plan could work – or Paul could kill her. Few people in Port Charles would miss the lady mobster if he targeted Ava as his next victim. But Ava is smart, so we have to assume that she’ll cover herself by stashing proof of Paul being the killer out of his reach.
After all, this is exactly how Paul has kept Ava under control for so long – he had the recording of her confessing to killing Connie Falconeri tucked away where Ava couldn’t find it so that he could make her do what he wanted. Now Ava can do Paul the same way!
Ava will definitely use the proof that Paul is the GH angel of death to her own benefit. No way will she run down to the PCPD and tell Jordan Ashford (Vinessa Antoine) that the dirty DA is the killer. Ava doesn’t care about the GH patients he’s killing – she only cares about the Jeromes.
She knows that Paul will do anything he can to avoid arrest for all his homicides and that means she can get him to do what she wants. First and foremost, Ava will demand the recording back of her killer confession. Second, though, Ava wants Julian set free.
The problem is, Paul can’t just drop the charges – they have evidence in the form of the recording that was made when Alexis Davis (Nancy Grahn) wore a wire to induce a confession from her hubby. But there are still other options. Paul can destroy the recording so there’s no confession.
Also, Paul can do a poor job in court of prosecuting the case when it goes to trial. General Hospital spoilers reveal that Julian will still face trial, but it will not go off as anyone expects. The big question is, can Paul keep from being caught by the PCPD before Julian’s trial ends?
How many more lives will be extinguished because Ava decides to serve her interests and Julian’s instead of protecting the public good? Ava is a killer herself, as is her brother, so she might even help cover Julian’s tracks as the GH killer so long as he’s helping her and Julian.
One thing we know about Ava is that she will do anything to protect herself and Paul has already threatened to take her down for the Connie shooting if she doesn’t testify against her own brother. But now Ava can turn the tables on Paul and have him under her thumb.
Paul will have little choice to go along with Ava’s demands – and this means that the serial killer plot is about to take a detour and entangle with the Julian trial plot. Even though we know who the GH killer is, there are still weeks to come of more killing and suspicions.
