Ava announces that she and Nikolas are getting married right away. Lulu believes Ava is blackmailing him. Kevin thinks Ava isn't in her right state of mind and reminds her that Nikolas manipulated her. Kevin questions why Ava would marry someone who treats her that way.

Ava claims to be perfectly sane and claims they have feelings for each other. She says she's forgiven Nikolas. Laura figures Ava found the codicil and is holding it over Nikolas' head. Nikolas believes they are a good match and asks for their blessing. Lulu refuses to give it and storms out. 

Jordan tells Nina that she has an arrest warrant for Valentin on charges of fraud, tampering with a corpse, and Ava's attempted murder. Nina doesn't look happy, though Curtis points out that she wanted Valentin to pay. Jordan wants Nina's statement, but Nina is desperate to get off the island. Jax heads out with her. 

Peter warns Valentin that he isn't taking Charlotte. Valentin asks Maxie to take Charlotte out of the room so he can speak to Peter. When she does, Valentin knocks down Peter before heading out with Charlotte. Charlotte grabs Nina's bouquet as Valentin convinces her to leave the grounds via the catacombs. 

Lulu shows up and realizes that Valentin has taken Charlotte. Lulu tells Jordan that Valentin has kidnapped Charlotte and they've gone out through the tunnels. 

Jax and Nina share a coffee while she complains how she should have broke things off weeks ago rather than letting it go this long. Nina asks about Nikolas. Jax explains their history, but he doesn't believe Nikolas to be the "good" Cassadine anymore. Jax tells Nina to leave the Cassadines to their own misery. 

Laura tries again to get through to Ava. Laura's upset that Nikolas is acting like a Cassadine, selfish and manipulative. She doesn't think they should go into a marriage like that. Ava again says they are a good match. Laura says she's not giving her blessing.
