Olivia Jerome is Esme’s mom?! Ava Jerome’s (Maura West) relationship with Esme Prince (Avery Kristen Pohl) is about to take a drastic turn. Ava and Esme’s relationship is the perfect description of the term arch enemies. Rivals to say the least, these two woman would love to see the other dead.
General Hospital recaps recall Esme came to Port Charles with Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and her own agenda. Lucky for Esme, Spencer’s plans fell in alignment with hers. Esme and Spencer were all about destroying Ava’s life. Esme was sent on a mission to come between Ava and Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma). She was to do whatever it took to get them apart. Her father Ryan Chamberlain’s (Jon Lindstrom) obsession with Esme’s boyfriend’s step mom served as the driving force for their mission.
The Jerome’s have been a prominent and powerful mon family in Port Charles since the late 1980’s. Ava, Olivia Jerome (Tonja Walker), and their late, half brother Julian Jerome (William deVry) were known for their crimes and mob ties. Olivia had it out for Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) because Anna had Duke Lavery’s (Ian Buchanan) heart. She has a long history of being the most dangerous and feared of the Jeromes. Olivia was killed in 2017 and resurfaced back in 2017. Olivia attempted to kill her brother Julian, however, her mission failed. As a result, the botched hit on Julian left her responsible for the car bomb that killed Morgan Corinthos (Bryan Craig). Consequently, Olivia was shipped off to D’Archam never to be heard from again- until now.
Aunt Ava to the Rescue
Fast forward five years and Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) mentions Olivia is in Pentonville. General Hospital spoilers and rumors reveal Olivia returns amidst the events surrounding Esme and Ava, as well as Anna and Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy). GH rumors speculate Olivia has a much bigger reason for return. Rumors claim as it turns out, Ryan’s obsession with Ava stems from his history with her sister Olivia. GH rumor has it Olivia Jerome is Esme’s mom, making Ava Esme’s Aunt! Ryan never tpld Esme her mother’s identity, therefore, the motherless young woman has no idea she is Ava’s niece. Perhaps if she knew she wouldn’t have been so willing to follow his father’s orders.
Olivia is clearly not mommy material and at this time, Esme needs a mother figure. GH spoilers and rumors hint Ava and Esme’s relationship takes a drastic turn. Eventually, Ava will take Esme in. There’s a hole in Ava’s heart where Kiki (Hayley Erin) used to be. Can Esme fill that void?
