Nikolas Cassadine is alive

Nikolas Cassadine is alive! Ava Jerome (Maura West) is left speechless after she stood witness to an unsolved mystery. At first, Nik’s family, friends, and the PCPD assumed he chose to make himself scarce. However, Detectives Dante and Bennett’s search uncovered evidence of foul play. Now, the former Mrs. Cassadine’s grandiose secret comes back to haunt her.

General Hospital recaps recall Ava’s last encounter with her ex ended in tragedy. Despite her efforts to talk him down, Ava couldn’t rationalize with Nikolas. After his threat against her daughter, she’d be damned if she let him get anywhere near Avery. Consequently, Ava did what she had to do to protect her daughter. And while in the heat of the argument, Ava made sure her ex-husband wouldn’t come anywhere close to her daughter. Next thing she knew it was lights out for the Dark Prince. A frantic Ava was saved by the bell when her new friend Austin Holt (Roger Howarth) dropped in.
