    Yes, So excited to see Maura West back on T.V. She was my all time favorite on O.L.T.V..Now we will be seeing her again on G.H. She is going to bring so muc to the set of G.H. Sparkle, charm ,mystery, and a lot of class to the show. Hope she is a permanent member of the cast. She is a real treat, and I believe all us faithful G.H followers are going to enjoy the show even more than we do now. Welcome Maura West.

    Cool! Ava Jerome is bound to be related to the Jerome family mafia that Anna and Duke battled way back in the 80's! Olivia Jerome (OLTL's Alex Olanov) was the Jerome mafia princess back then who had an obsession with Duke. I also bet a million dollars that the Jerome family will be enemies of Sonny's & will be the ones chasing down Morgan, as Morgan will be returning soon in a heap of trouble. This will give Duke and Anna a new storyline & will tie them into Sonny's world. Perfect!
