On today's General Hospital recap: Spencer accuses Nikolas of being cruel and feels he shouldn't have come home. Laura says the car fire couldn't have been Spencer and Nikolas was wrong for what he did. Spencer says Nikolas will always choose Ava over him. Nikolas admits he pushed too hard, but he loves Spencer. Spencer storms off, so Trina goes after him. Laura chastises Nikolas and believes Spencer's innocent.

Carly arrives to pick up Joss, who tells her what happened at the party. Carly storms into the house to tear a strip off of Nikolas. Nikolas is not having it and says he's not taking parenting advice from Carly. (Hell yeah!!) Carly bitches him out some more before walking out with Joss.

Trina talks to Spencer, and even though she knows how much he hates Ava, she believes he's not capable of being the stalker. Spencer asks if she would be able to forgive him if he had been the one responsible. He says he doesn't think he can forgive Nikolas for this. The two share a close moment.

Laura tears another strip off of Nikolas, who says he wanted to give Spencer a taste of his own medicine for stalking Ava. Laura accuses Nikolas of behaving like a Cassadine. She says he needs to learn how to tame his dark impulses and set a good example for Spencer.

Joss isn't ready to leave, but Carly is insistent that she needs to get back to the mainland. Joss wonders what's going on with her mother. Carly claims Joss is her top priority.

Sam tells Curtis about the phone call from Drew. Curtis brings up the plane crash, but Sam says if anyone could have survived a crash, it would have been Navy Seal Drew. Sam says she owes it to her kids to find out if it was really him. Curtis wonders where Drew's been and why it took so long to make contact. He thinks maybe Drew has been held captive this whole time and was trying to escape. Sam says the more she thinks about it, she feels it was Drew on the phone.
