On today's General Hospital recap: Carly summons Ava to tell her about the divorce and wonders if Ava's been coaching Nina all along. Ava denies it. Carly tells her that Avery will be staying with Sonny while Donna stays with her. Carly doesn't want the sisters to suffer.
Carly says Sonny has agreed to share Avery with Ava, but he could easily change his mind and she's willing to help Ava. Carly wants time with Avery in exchange, though Ava's not ready to jump. Ava lists her grievances against Carly and how she's treated Nina. Carly says Ava has outlasted all of Sonny's side pieces and will come out on top again. Ava says they reached a truce when Sonny was gone and worked together for Avery's sake, and she sees no reason to change now. Ava says she'll allow Carly to stay in Avery's life.
Sonny wakes up hungover on his couch with Nina at his side. He admits things are a little hazy, so Nina explains how she found him at Charlie's. Nina asks about the penthouse and Sonny says it's now home and shows her the divorce papers. Nina plays him the voicemail message that he left her last night. Nina says his drinking is an issue for her. She points out that he shouldn't mix his medications with alcohol despite his assurances that everything is fine. The two share a hug and then a kiss.
Curtis praises Drew on his return. Marshall talks to Drew about his last encounter with Sonny, but Drew claims there are no issues there. After Marshall leaves, Drew asks if Curtis is still digging into his past. Curtis says he's stopped looking and accepts the little he knows. Curtis does worry that whatever Marshall is hiding will come back on him and Portia. Drew tells Curtis to offer his father a job and the paperwork needed could give him answers. Curtis asks if Drew has time to help, if everything with Peter is done. Drew admits there are things that still need to be cleared up.
