General Hospital spoilers and updates reveals the on-screen chemistry firing back and forth between Ava Jerome Cassadine (Maura West) and Esme Prince (Avery Kristen Pohl) has people asking if there’s more to the story with these two than meets the eye. Sure, Esme was responsible for stalking Ava, alongside Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Chavez).
She’s made her life a living horror show by torching her car, tormenting her about her late daughter – Kiki Jerome (Hayley Erin), and then sleeping with Ava’s husband. But the vitriol between them seems rather primal and more intense than either of them realize. Could Ava and Esme share a connection that is built on a foundation deeper than trauma — such as DNA?
General Hospital Spoilers — Who is Esme’s Mommy?
So far, we only know limited details about Esme’s life. She was given up for adoption and still has no information on who her birth mother was. She longs for the day her alleged birth father — Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) — gives her any information that might help her track that woman down.
Her adoptive parents were apparently happy until they weren’t, and their marriage faced its demise as one of them betrayed the other. Esme implied somebody cheated and that an outsider broke up her happy family home, but she didn’t clearly express it was adultery. Nonetheless, her adoptive parents both died when she was still a child.
After the death of the only parents she had ever known, she was placed in the care of her nanny, Maggie Fitzgerald. We still don’t know anything about Maggie except that she and Esme kept in touch for a while, and she once lived in London, England.
It’s possible that the child Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth) was convinced he had with Ava all those years ago was actually Esme, not Kiki. When Franco insisted it was Kiki, Ava knew a DNA test would prove that to be false. That doesn’t mean a child wasn’t produced from Ava and Franco’s affair though.
GH Spoilers Indicate Ryan May Not Be Her Daddy
It’s not perfectly clear how Esme and Ryan came to be in touch and certain they are related, and that may not be by chance. It’s quite possible Ryan isn’t her birth father at all. But if Ryan figured out that Ava once had a child she gave up for adoption, he may have tracked Esme down and decided to play the role of her birth father just to try to weasel his way back into Ava’s life — as well as making himself feel like he shared a child with Ava. That’s exactly how Ryan’s twisted brain works.
General Hospital Spoilers — The Truth Always Comes Out
How will the truth surface about who Esme’s parents are, and will it turn out that Ava is her mother? Is there any way these two would ever be able to embrace being mother and daughter — especially if Ava is about to become both a grandmother and a stepmother to Esme’s baby with Nikolas? How do you see this playing out? Let us know, and stay tuned right here for more upcoming GH news and spoilers.
