General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Ava Jerome Cassadine (Maura West) and Austin (Roger Howarth) could become a hot new couple. Will Maura West and Roger Howarth’s characters be paired up in a fresh love story?
Ava will have an intriguing encounter with Austin on June 29, so fans will see them cross paths at the Metro Court and interact. This could serve as the beginning of some flying sparks if that’s the direction GH writers want to go in.
Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth) was a close friend of Ava’s as well as her former flame. There was arguably chemistry between Ava and Franco, so there’ll surely be chemistry between Ava and Austin, too.
It’s just a matter of whether their personalities would mesh – and we don’t see why they wouldn’t since Austin is a lot like Franco.
We also know Austin doesn’t seem to be some squeaky-clean doctor. Austin is obviously hiding a few secrets based on his recent interaction with Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) and Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco).
Although Austin may be in the business of saving lives, he has another side to him – perhaps even a scheming one that’d appeal to Ava.
Of course, we should point out that Ava’s concerned about Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma) safety at the moment. As the danger escalates, Ava may decide to divorce Nikolas for his own protection.
This stalker situation could drive Ava to push Nikolas away just to keep him alive.
There’s a good chance the threat to Nikolas and Ava’s marriage is actually a Spencer Cassadine recast, but they may not know that until their relationship has fallen apart.
Ava could easily decide she doesn’t want to be the reason for so much strife between Spencer and his son. There’ll be some simple reasons to put Ava on a new path with another man if that’s what the writing team decides to do.
If Ava moves on, it might be Austin who she moves on with. Will Ava and Austin become a hot new couple to root for?
Anything can happen down the road, so we’ll see how things shape up after this first encounter and any other interesting conversations to follow.
We’ll provide updates as other GH news becomes available. General Hospital spoilers say Ava could perhaps use a romantic reboot, so Austin might be a good way to go. CDL’s where you want to be for sizzling General Hospital spoilers, news and updates, so drop by again soon.
