Ava Jerome has been the villain of Port Charles since she came to town in 2013. She already escaped death once, can she do it again? GH fans think the latest twist in Ava’s storyline foreshadows a murder mystery. Keep reading to find out their predictions on the prime suspects.

Is Maura West Leaving GH?

Despite playing the bad girl, Maura West is a fan favorite among GH fans. Many remember her fondly as Carly Tenney on the now-canceled CBS soap As The World Turns. She played the anti-heroine from 1995 until 2010.

After ATWT ended, she briefly played a recast Diane Jenkins on The Young & The Restless but didn’t gel with the role. The actress had better luck when she joined General Hospital as Ava Jerome, the daughter of late mob boss Victor Jerome.

General Hospital fans think the soap is planning to kill off Ava in a whodunit murder mystery. Is the actress leaving the soap after playing the role for over a decade? Journalist Michael Fairman asked Maura West directly at the Emmys last month if the rumors of Ava’s death are true or greatly exaggerated.

In typical soap star fashion, she evaded the question, teasing, “You’ll have to watch and see what happens. That’s all I can tell you.”

Soap Fans Predict Ava Jerome Murder Mystery Coming

So, why do soap fans think Ava Jerome is about to meet her maker? The character has returned to her devious ways, especially as her custody battle with Sonny (Maurice Benard) heats up. Mysterious villain Pikeman has been messing with Sonny’s bipolar medications, causing him to act erratically. Ava knows about the pills but hasn’t let Sonny know the truth.

Ava recently leaked a recording of Natalia (Eva LaRue) making homophobic comments about her daughter’s romance with Kristina (Kate Mansi) and the LGBTQ+ community in general. But fans have noticed that most of the anger is aimed at Ava and not the person who actually made the comments.

Given all the enemies Ava has been making as of late, GH fans can’t help but think the character will be killed off, sparking a murder mystery storyline.

List Of Possible Suspects

Casting changes can happen swiftly in the soap industry. Michael Easton announced his exit from General Hospital earlier this month and his final airdate was the very next day. So, if Maura West is leaving the show in a murder mystery involving Ava, the network wouldn’t spoil that beforehand.

Not only are fans convinced Ava is marching toward her death, they have a list of suspects. GH fans took to Reddit to share their theories about Ava’s alleged murder. Many fans think Sonny is the most obvious choice, given his outbursts and custody fight.

The OP of the thread shared their guesses at other suspects: “The suspects can be Nina, Alexis, Christina, Blaze, the Deception Ladies, Natalia, the former editor dude Nina just fired, and I’m sure I’m forgetting a few suspects.”

Another GH fan suggested Ava could fake her death and pin it on Sonny or one of her other enemies.
