General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Ava Jerome Cassadine (Maura West) could find herself the keeper of a major secret – and as a result, Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma) may score this secret, too.
GH fans know there’s no shortage of shockers being kept under wraps, but we want to focus on one in particular: the fact that Nelle Benson Jerome (Chloe Lanier) is Nina Reeves’ (Cynthia Watros) biological daughter.
Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) took Avery Corinthos’ (Ava and Grace Scarola) necklace from her, which actually belonged to Nelle before Avery stumbled across it. Of course, it’s Avery’s now as far as she’s concerned – and she’s eager to get her lucky charm back.
Carly should really just throw the necklace away, claim she lost it and buy Avery something else to distract her. However, that’d be too simple – and soaps don’t go for simple! They’ve been harping on this half-heart pendant for so long that it’ll inevitably play a bigger role in the story.
General Hospital spoilers say Ava will accidentally come close to exposing a secret during the week of January 11-15. It makes sense that this will tie in with Avery and that critical necklace. If Avery manages to get her hands on that necklace again or pitches a fit about it, Ava might learn more than she should.
This could lead to Ava putting the puzzle pieces together eventually and realizing Nina’s biological daughter is dead Nelle! Ava will have the leverage of a lifetime if that happens. Carly would much rather keep that news under wraps – and so would Jasper “Jax” Jacks (Ingo Rademacher).
Since Ava and Nikolas don’t want to keep secrets from each other, this could also be something Ava chooses to share with her husband. Nikolas might have some initial reservations about Ava getting dragged into trouble, but he’d also know how much pain Nina would be in if the truth came out.
With that in mind, Nikolas might see no reason they can’t use this Nelle bombshell to their advantage.
Nikolas knows Ava adores Avery and he loves the kid as well. There are already some hints about Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) potentially pushing Ava to go after custody of Avery. If Carly puts up a fight, Ava and Nikolas might force her to cave on the issue through the knowledge of this Nelle secret.
It could leave Nikolas and Ava with some power, but it could also leave Nina furious with them both once the secret’s exposed down the road. The more people that know before Nina, the angrier she’ll be after she finds out the truth.
