‘General Hospital’ (GH) spoilers reveal there’s a new attorney in town. Her name is Zahra Amir (Maysoon Zayid) and she’s recently been brought in as part of the ShilohArcher (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) and Willow Tait (Katelyn MacMullen) drama. While this case might not last long, there’s all kinds of potential if she stays. Here’s what you need to know.
‘General Hospital (GH)’ Spoilers : Why Zahra Amir is just the thing Port Charles needs.
Maysoon Zayid is a busy woman. Besides her acting work, she’s also a standup comedian and speaker. When not touring, she’s also busy with her camp that helps disabled children in Palestine get involved in the arts. We think that is a great cause, because there a real healing in creating. She uses her own battle with Cerebral Palsy to raise awareness of disabilities, and her standup usually tackles serious topics.
General Hospital Spoilers: The background
So, recently we first met her as Shiloh’s attorney. She’s been fighting to help him gain parental rights over Wiley. This has not been an easy job. She’s had to deal with tough-as-nails Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) being on the opposing side, for one. She’s also had her client himself to deal with. Between spewing Dawn of Day propaganda while preparing testimony and suggesting she donate most of her fee to his organization, she’s had her work cut out for her.
General Hospital Spoilers: Why she’s needed
Zahra is a huge reality check, for one. Her no-nonsense style and BS detector are likely to be crucial as this case goes forward—especially with Kristina Corinthos-Davis (Lexi Ainsworth) getting mixed up in the situation.
Her unshakable nature and blunt honesty is exactly the thing that is taking Shiloh down a notch. This can only be helpful to the opposition, as Shiloh is sure to fall apart under too much disappointment.
The most important part (to us, anyway) is she’s just entertaining. Her commentary is perfect for breaking up the seriousness of some of the recent arcs. Plus, she brings a fresh energy that shakes things up.
General Hospital Spoilers: Going forward
Let’s face it: Port Charles can be a messy place, family-wise. Let’s count the ways…
Lulu Falconeri (Emme Rylan)/Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart)/Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros). This trio has had their share of friction, especially lately. There was talk about altering the custody agreement in the wake of Lulu’s sudden trip to Paris. With his ego (and secrets), you just know this is likely to become an issue.
Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Bernard) and Ava Jerome (Maura West). This pair shares a daughter, Avery Jerome-Corinthos (Ava and Grace Scarola) and there has been no love lost between then. With Ava’s… difficult personality, especially in the wake of Kiki Jerome’s (Hayley Erin) death, they’ve already argued about their situation. Sonny even offered to hire Zahra to help with the situation just to get her away from Shiloh. Could we see Sonny pursue this?
Brad Cooper (Parry Shen) and Lucas Jones (Ryan Carnes). We already know they’re involved in the baby-sway, although unwillingly in Lucas’ case. Once this truth inevitably comes out, someone’s going to have to help sort through the nasty fight we’re sure that Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier) will start to keep the kid out of Carly Corinthos’ (Laura Wright) hands. And we’ve already seen Zahra’s willing to rep anyone, even if they’re spewing propaganda and trying to con money.
