General Hospital spoilers reveal Ava Jerome continuing to stick by Nina Reeves’ side despite their tumultuous past. It might seem strange that these two female characters should be friends, but it’s actually a friendship that works.
General Hospital Spoilers: Shouldn’t They Be Mortal Enemies?
The rivalry between Ava (Maura West) and Nina (Michelle Stafford and Cynthia Watros) goes back decades to before Nina was ever in that 20-year coma her mother put her in while she was pregnant — we now know with twins. At the time, Madeline Reeves (Donna Mills) had paid Ava to seduce Nina’s husband, Silas Clay (Michael Easton), in order to end her daughter’s marriage. Ava ended up pregnant and passed her baby, Lauren Katherine, aka Kiki, off as Franco Baldwin’s, aka Robert Frank.
Years and years passed and Nina finally emerged from her coma, learning she’d missed half her adult life and was no longer going to be the mom she looked so forward to becoming. She also was furious to learn that Ava was pregnant and was going to have yet another daughter when she had no daughters.
Nina then went off the deep end and kidnapped Ava, inducing labor and then taking off with baby Avery, calling her Jaime Somers after the Bionic Woman, a TV show from Nina’s childhood. After stealing a woman’s baby practically out of her womb, one would think Ava and Nina should be enemies forever, but that’s not what happened.

At one time, Nina decided she would make Ava pay by doing a story on her in Crimson called “Midnight In The Garden of Good and Ava” which portrayed Ava in a horrible light. She had a good laugh about it, but Ava did not.
However, these two women somehow found they actually have a lot in common and when they were able to put their anger at one another aside, they learned they probably should have been best girlfriends for years if pesky Silas hadn’t gotten in the way of their lives. They are both wealthy, they both take no prisoners, and they both have something to say about everyone in PC. Plus, they also both hate Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) and that can bond just about anyone. Bring on more Ava and Nina on General Hospital and let them take no prisoners when it comes to Carly.
