12 Awesome GIFS from Maura West’s ‘General Hospital’ Debut


Emmy winner Maura West (ex-Carly, As the World Turns) made her much anticipated debut as Ava Jerome on ABC’s General Hospital yesterday and it was as amazing as we’d hoped. 

We wondered how Ava would factor into storylines and it turns out she plays a pretty big part. Ava happens to be the mother of the recently discovered Quartermaine heir Lauren Frank, or should we say, Lauren Jerome. Luke’s investigation led him to Ava’s doorstep in Manhattan where he engaged and confronted Ava about her evasive tactics. There, he learned how Ms. Jerome came to know Robert Frank aka Robert Quartermaine and why she kept Lauren hidden away. It seems like Luke may have convinced Ava to encourage Lauren to side with great-aunt Tracy over Uncle AJ in the battle for ELQ. The big surprise of the episode came after Luke left. Ava called to someone upstairs, saying it was okay to come out now. But it wasn’t Lauren making her way downstairs, it was Sonny and Carly’s now college-age son Morgan!

What are you up to Ava? In honor of Maura West’s debut, TVSource Magazine made 12 GIFS featuring West’s deliciously soapy facial expressions and the final scene of the episode.

Luke: You’re not Lauren Frank | Ava: You sure about that?

Ava: Thanks alot jackass (in response to Luke’s unintentional insult about her age.

Ava: Good luck with that

Ava: So this Quartermaine woman wants to find Lauren Frank. Why? She her long lost daughter?

“I’m Ava Jerome…”

“I’m an art dealer Mr. Spencer. I most definitely have heard of Robert ‘Franco’ ‘Frank”

*listening to Luke recap what Franco’s mother said*

“Everyone wanted to know Franco, wanted a piece of him. And he was showering me with attention. It was seductive…”

“It was like…he made her. Like she was his work of art. [Lauren] wasn’t her own person. She was something he owned, that he could change and mold like clay.”

*Ava learning that Robert Frank is a Quartermaine*

*Ava thinking about Luke’s offer…*

“You can come out now.” Oh hi Morgan Corinthos!

General Hospital airs weekdays on ABC.
