While AJ was trying a takeover of ELQ on General Hospital (GH), Tracy needed to find Franco’s daughter (back when they thought he was Jason’s twin) to break the tie so she dispatched Luke to go find her — but he found her mother first.
Ava Jerome (Maura West) opened the door to Luke (Anthony Geary) but didn’t introduce herself. She was too busy sizing him up, wanting to figure out what he was after. It didn’t take him long to get to the point as he noted she was not Lauren Frank, the young woman he was looking for. After some witty banter, Luke managed to push himself in.
Ava was flabbergasted but played along, intrigued by him. He realized she was the girl’s mom, and Ava finally admitted how she ended up knowing the infamous Franco and how her daughter came to be.
Even though it was mostly chatter to introduce her character, West’s and Geary’s back and forth is like a master class in acting. Enjoy their first scenes together below in this mesmerizing walk down memory lane — and stay for the surprise appearance at the end.
