On today's General Hospital recap: Chase stops over to take Bailey home and Brook Lynn warns him to watch out for Tracy. Chase complains about his suspension and how frustrated he is. Olivia shows up with her panties in a bunch, telling them about Willow's testimony and the fallout.

Brook Lynn and Chase talk her from the ledge so she doesn't punch Nina in the face. Olivia watches them get flirty with each other before Chase heads out, and asks Brook Lynn about it. Brook Lynn puts her off and asks about Carly and Sonny, which distracts Olivia.

Spencer interrupts Trina and Ava to discuss working for her as restitution. Ava says he owes her for the damage to the gallery with the fake blood. Ava mentions he'll be working for Trina after his sentence, which upsets Trina. 

Ava tells Spencer he needs to right his wrongs and he needs to make amends with Trina for hurting her. Spencer admits he hurt Trina, but doesn't think he can make it up to her. Trina comes back calmer and agrees to be the one to supervise his work. Trina wonders why Ava is punishing her by making her work with Spencer. Ava says it gives Trina a chance to boss Spencer around. Ava says Trina needs the experience since she'll run her own gallery some day.

Josslyn vents to Cameron about Sonny protecting Nina in court and thinks he's betrayed their family. She's worried that Carly and Sonny have broken up for real. Esme overhears and questions whether they can still use the cabin (one track mind, that one.) Esme apologizes and mentions how much Spencer needs to get away before his sentence starts. Josslyn pulls back and agrees to check with Sonny about the cabin since he owes her now.

Esme talks about her parents' break up before their deaths and how devastating it was. She makes a snarky comment about people who break couples apart. Josslyn leaves to talk with Trina. Cameron discusses Esme's anger and how she can't let it erupt. Esme apologizes to Josslyn and later Josslyn asks Cameron if he thinks Esme was being legit.
