Esme’s twin Betty framed Ava

Betty Rutherford (Ella Lentini) was hired as Avery Corinthos’s (Ava and Grace Scarola) nanny. That lasted for about 2.3 seconds before Ava told Sonny the deal and he set his trap. Betty was working for Pikeman to help take down Sonny and blackmail Ava Jerome (Maura West). But did we ever stop to think about why Betty was so willing to put herself in the position to be “eliminated” by Sonny Corinthos?

Ava Jerome isn’t winning any popularity contests in Port Charles. Although I bet she’d win when pinned up against Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros). That woman has less friends than Regina George after her Burn Book was exposed. Trina is probably Ava’s most loyal supporter in life as Trina has never kidnapped or killed any of Ava’s children. She also never framed her for a murder or stalked her at any time. Despite Trina’s loyalty, I think it’s safe to say that Ava has more enemies than friends.

General Hospital spoilers and rumors tease that Ava’s been framed! They’ve run through the obvious suspects and it looks like Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) is already out of the runnings. Still, many GH fans believe that Nikolas Cassadine killed Austin Holt (Roger Howarth), framing Ava for the murder. But, what if it wasn’t Nikolas?

Esme’s Twin Betty Framed Ava

Last year, GH Blog shared a shocking hint to the Esme, Ryan, Heather Webber triangle. It just so happens that it’s not a triangle at all. Instead, it’s a square. According to General Hospital recaps, Heather and Ryan had a discussion in late December of 2022. In that discussion Heather revealed that there was not one but two in a cryptic remark to her once beloved.

GH spoilers and rumors tease that Betty and Esme are twins and that Betty helped take Sonny and Ava down to avenge Ryan and Esme. True, Esme isn’t dead in the physical sense. But like Taylor Swift song, for Esme it’s more like, “I’m sorry, the old Esme can’t come to the phone right now. Why? Oh, ’cause she’s dead!” Betty’s twin as she knew her is long gone and has been replaced with this white picket fence-fantasizing soccer mom. As for Ryan, well he’s as dead as a doornail and Betty isn’t happy about that either. She blames Ava for all of it. So why not frame her for murder?

Nikolas killed Austin for revenge
Nikolas killed Austin for revenge

Nikolas Cassadine has his share of reasons to stay far, far away from Port Charles. First, his relationship with his son Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) was rocky ever since Nikolas faked his death. It’s understandable that Spencer felt abandoned, and distances himself from his father. Emotionally, the two were further apart than ever. Spencer was back from boarding school and living at Wyndemere, distance separated father and son.

Nikolas had other problems in his life but they all stemmed from the same issue. It was a vicious cycle back when Spencer and Esme both had it out for Nikolas and Ava. As a result, Spencer’s resentment towards his dad and step mom helped fuel Esme’s agenda. Additionally, Spencer unknowingly fed into Esme’s trap which helped lead Ava and Nikolas astray from each other. It was the straw the broke the camel’s back for Spencer.

Nikolas Killed Austin Over Ava?!

Once Esme seduced Nikolas and she became pregnant, time eventually did its job. It was only a matter of time that Spencer found out about how his father Nikolas slept with Esme. At this point Spencer had been betrayed by Nikolas enough. And on top of that, he found out who is girlfriend really was.

Ava Jerome (Maura West) was roped into the middle of it all between Nikolas and Spencer. But Ryan’s fixation on Ava fueled Esme’s entire plot, resulting in Ava’s marriage to Nikolas. According to General Hospital spoilers, Nikolas gets his revenge! The last time that he saw Ava was the night she thought she killed him. Until recently, Ava assumed that he was dead. Thanks to Austin, Ava was able to hide Nikolas’s body, or so she thought. That’s when one thing lead to another and Ava ended up sleeping with Austin. Now, Nikolas wants revenge.

GH spoilers and rumors tease that Nikolas killed Austin for revenge. He knows that Ava thought that she killed him, and the fact that she slept with Austin might be enough motive.

General Hospital Spoilers: Esme Takes Ace To Dr. Austin Holt, Leads To Shocking Discovery

Spencer is Ace’s father

Esme discovers Spencer is Ace’s father!? …Did you doubt it? I know I didn’t because there’s almost always a twist. “What you see is what you get” is not really a thing in the soap opera world. In fact, typically, things are not as they seem. So, paternity twists, baby switches, fake test results, and DNA shockers, are not uncommon.

Over in Chechnya, Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma/Adam Huss) is most likely held captive for some sinister plot that will eventually come crashing down. All the while his family, including the mother of his alleged child, believe he’s escaped fatherhood from both Spencer and Ace. However, his mother Laura Spencer (Genie Francis) is the one person whose instincts tell her otherwise.

Meanwhile, Ace’s (Jay and Joey Clay) mom, Esme Prince (Avery Kristen Pohl), tries to co-parents with her son’s big brother, and her ex-boyfriend, Spencer. GH spoilers and rumors tease that Ace’s appointment with Dr. Austin Holt (Roger Howarth) leads to a shocking discovery. According to GH rumors, Esme discovers Spencer is Ace’s father, not Nikolas!

General Hospital Spoilers: Baby Ace Falls Victim To Unsuspecting Danger!

Laura protects Ace from Kevin

Laura protects Ace from Kevin! The well-being of Esme Prince’s newborn son is in question. As his mother faces sentencing, the alleged father is nowhere to be found.

General Hospital spoilers and rumors tease that because of Esme’s predicament, Laura becomes Ace’s legal guardian. The new mother puts her trust in the baby’s grandmother to care for Ace and keep him safe. Seemingly, choosing Laura to be Ace’s legal guardian is the most responsible decision Esme could make in this situation. But, unsuspecting danger turns a safe choice into the worst possible scenario.

Initially, the goal is so that Ace’s mother and family can rest easy knowing that he’s in good hands. As GH recaps recall, Esme got wind of Spencer’s intended custody request. So, she took appropriate consideration in her son’s well-being. As a result, Esme believes that Laura is the best option for Ace.

However, according to recent General Hospital rumors and spoilers, Laura is thrown for a loop when Kevin begins acting peculiarly. Despite Esme’s safe choice, choosing Laura becomes a regret. No we’re not saying that Laura is the reason. Ace falls victim to unsuspecting danger. However, it is her husband Kevin, that will become the threat. A true nightmare, Kevin struggles with cognitive dissonance as conflicting ideas zip through his mind. Soon, Kevin takes on the thoughts and actions of his brother Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom). It then becomes imperative that Laura protects Ace from Kevin.

General Hospital Spoilers: Laura Becomes Ace’s Legal Guardian, Will She Step Down As Mayor?

Laura becomes Ace’s legal guardian

Laura becomes Ace’s legal guardian!? As they say, babies will change your life. It’s no secret that welcoming a baby into the home requires a lifelong commitment. Essentially, raising a baby into adulthood is the toughest job around.

General Hospital spoilers tease that the well-being of Esme’s baby is judged by self-serving adults who are out to settle a score. Ace’s mother brought him into the world with no recollection of who she was. Moreover, Esme doesn’t even remember her baby’s father. Apparently, a jump into ice cold water while pregnant will do that. After saving herself from imprisonment by her alleged baby’s father, Esme became a completely different person. But, just because her traumatic experiences erased her memory, they don’t erase her last crimes.

With Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma/Adam Huss) missing, Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) thought he had his custody motion in the bag. As baby Ace’s big half brother, Spencer figured he’d be granted custody over Ace’s unfit/absent parents. However, Esme wants nothing to do with her ex-boyfriend raising her child. Her hands are ties as she awaits judgement day. Legally, it looks like Esme is able to bring baby Ace to Spring Ridge upon her time of sentencing. But, incarceration isn’t really an a life event a baby should experience.

Laura Becomes Ace’s Legal Guardian

General Hospital spoilers reveal that with that in mind, Esme displays impressive parenting. The new mother is willing to do what’s best for her baby. Therefore, Esme asks Laura to become Ace’s legal guardian while she serves her sentence in Pentonville.

Laura faces a big decision. Is she willing to juggle parenting all over again as well as her obligations as Mayor?

General Hospital Spoilers: Elizabeth Fears Esme’s Memory Returning, Will Esme Remember Calling Her Baby, “Ace”?

Esme remembers baby Ace

Baby Ace triggers Esme. …Esme Prince (Avery Kristen Pohl) gave birth to a baby boy. Young woman’s super sudsy soap opera birth is unconventional yet typical. Accordingly, Esme’s, her baby, and all who surround them lead the next front running storyline.

General Hospital recaps recall Elizabeth Webber’s (Rebecca Herbst) role in Nikolas Cassadine’s (Marcus Coloma) devious game. As history tells it, the people of Port Charles recognize Elizabeth and Nikolas’s friendship for representing loyalty and strength. Always coming to each other’s rescue, Liz and Nik knew they could always depend on one another. And due to Elizabeth’s unwavering loyalty to Nikolas, she was roped in to help him keep Esmé captive. During that time, Nurse Webber tended to Esme’s prenatal needs.

Although the situation wasn’t exactly optimal, the prenatal care that Esme received from Elizabeth was genuine. After a few surprisingly effective discussions with her Nurse, Esme displayed a real bond with her unborn baby boy. As a result, the captured accused (of the hook killings) started calling the baby, “Ace.”

According to General Hospital spoilers, insight from a recent interview reveals that soon, all is forgiven for the boarding school seductress. Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson’s interview with Avery Pohl’s alluded to her character’s rebirth. It seems Esme’s amnesia is real by the way she so naturally reacts to Heather and Ryan’s lunacy. That being said, she remembers nothing about her past; now even her pregnancy as a prisoner in Wyndemere. However, recent General Hospital rumors speculate that perhaps baby Ace triggers his mom, sparking her memory. Perhaps she’ll instinctually call him, “Ace,” simply by admiring her newborn. unfortunately for Liz, if Esmé remembers calling her child ace, she just might remember everything.

General Hospital news reports remain silent regarding the role of Nikolas Cassadine. Last played by Adam Huss, Nikolas has seemingly met his untimely death.

However, it’s been done in the past; killing off multiple members the iconic Quartermaine family.
