General Hospital Spoilers reveal Ava Jerome Cassadine (Maura West) is itching for a new man in her life. Sure, she’s still heartbroken over Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma) and his affair, which has now been compounded by the news that he is having a child with Esme Prince (Avery Kristen Pohl).
Still, Ava knows nothing helps her get over a man better than jumping on board with a new one to distract her.
When she’s done with her revenge game, she just might have someone new in mind to spend her time with — Dr. Austin Gatlin Holt (Roger Howarth).
General Hospital Spoilers — Maxie Wasn’t a Match for Austin
Austin is getting over his own version of heartbreak. Though they weren’t married, he had high hopes for his relationship with Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) at one time.
However, the pressure to be good enough for Maxie was just too much for Austin to handle.
When he slipped up and blackmailed Damian Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) into running his Society Setups algorithm on Austin and Maxie, he knew his obsession with making sure they were the perfect couple had gone too far.
That’s why he had no problem admitting to Maxie right away what he had done. He knew they were past their expiration date and it was time to come clean, whether she moved on from him or not.
GH Spoilers Hint Ava and Austin Share a Checkered Past
Ava would be a more suitable match for Austin. She shares some things in common with him that he felt like Maxie just couldn’t possibly understand — like having a rather shady family who preys on you.
As far as families go, Maxie has one of the best a gal could have in Felicia Scorpio (Kristina Wagner) and Max Scorpio (John J. York).
Austin felt she just wasn’t going to be accepting of his broody and overbearing cousin, Mason (Nathanyael Grey) — and why would she welcome a criminal with open arms into her daughter’s world?
Ava is a little bit more lax on that front merely because her child’s own father is a career criminal and she’s a reformed one herself.
General Hospital Spoilers — The Future is Ripe With Possibilities
Could you see Ava and Austin pairing up down the road?
Their recent encounter at the hospital during Ava’s post-surgical check-up left a lot of flirtation on the table and makes us wonder what might be in store for these two.
Ava doesn’t dish out compliments often, but she made sure to let Austin know how she felt about the heart on his sleeve.
After Ava is done swindling Wyndemere out of Nikolas, perhaps Austin will end up the new man of the castle with Ava by his side.
It’s time for some new blood on Spoon Island anyway, and West and Howarth had fabulous chemistry in the past when he played the role of Franco Baldwin.
