Look for Ava's mobster daddy Martino Vitali (Joe Penny) to have a sordid past with the glamourous Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) when he turns up in Salem to help his whackadoodle daughter Ava (Tamara Braun) on May 2. According to TV Guide's Michael Logan's column (on newstands now), Vitali arrives to to assist his little mafia princess when she finds herself in hot water for kidnapping and terrorizing Salem's Fab Four (Bo, Hope, Patch and Kayla). Once he arrives in Salem, Vitali reconnects with Kate, who used to act out Tina Turner's "Private Dancer" for him when she was a high class hooker. Hmmm, Kate's always said that the soon-to-be sprung from the joint Lucas (Bryan Datillo) was the product of her decades ago affair with Bill Horton, but I wonder...will Lucas turn out to be Ava's brother?
