ABC General Hospital spoilers suggest that Ava Cassadine (Maura West) is wealthy enough on her own. In fact, many GH fans are wondering exactly why Ava needs the Cassadine fortune or anything connected with it. Is Ava merely pathetic or does she have an ulterior motive?
General Hospital Spoilers – Ava Cassadine Hates The Ice
While Ava seems to have made it a habit to hold her marriage agreement with Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma) over his head, some believe that she may actually have an ulterior motive for doing so. It’s not that Ava desperately needs more money. It’s not that Ava is frantically trying to secure all of Spoon Island and Wyndemere castle for herself. It’s definitely not that Ava has dreamt of having “Cassadine” as her surname for ages.
No, it’s that all these trappings are tied to Nikolas, and many GH viewers have come to believe that Ava secretly yearns for Nikolas. Ava longs for Nikolas to love her in the same way that she privately aches for him. Every time viewers see Ava being catty, threatening to take Nikolas’s possessions away from him … it’s because she knows that by holding onto his fortune, she can keep Nikolas close!
GH Spoilers – Ava Cassadine Protects Nikolas Cassadine
Haven’t GH fans watched as Ava defends Nikolas to the hilt when she is with him in public? Oh, she might tell Nikolas that she’s merely playacting, but the truth is that it actually enrages her when others speak badly of the Prince of Nothing. Some believe that Ava has the sort of love-hate relationship with Nikolas (in her own mind) that is exemplified by stories in which someone defends his or her lover against all enemies but then ends up killing the object of affection themselves.
Indeed, consider the fact that Ava has defended Nikolas to his own son, Spencer Cassadine (Nicolas Bechtel), and tried to help the two reconcile. Ava has also stopped all of her ugliness toward Nikolas during moments that really counted. When she could see that Nikolas was upset or hurting, what did Ava do? Did she attack and tries to hurt Nikolas even more? No, Ava did the exact opposite. For those brief moments, Ava was comforting, soft, and caring, and she opened herself up and allowed herself to share a vulnerable side with Nikolas.
General Hospital Spoilers – Ava Cassadine Takes the Castle
The truth is that Ava doesn’t need any of Nikolas’s wealth. She doesn’t need the Cassadine name. Ava doesn’t need Nikolas’s money. With that said, Ava has been hurt many many times in the past. Mightn’t Ava actually be pining away for the time when she and Nikolas used to be friends, and for a brief moment, lovers? Isn’t it possible that Ava’s never forgotten that time in her life and wishes that it would come around once more?

Most will agree that Ava’s not likely to murder Nikolas if she can’t have him. However, no one ever said that Ava was completely free of a vindictive spirit.
If she can’t have Nikolas, viewers can bet that Ava won’t blink at taking the Spoon Island and its drafty old castle as a consolation prize.
