On today's General Hospital recap: Laura notices that Spencer is distracted, but before he can explain about Esme, Victor drops in to give Spencer a hug. Victor says they need to discuss family business. Laura gets a call from Jordan and heads out, leaving Victor to question Spencer about Esme. Spencer says he can't trust her and they're done.
Victor questions Esme's loyalty and Spencer says she hurt his friends by pinning the blame on someone else for something he knows she did. Victor wants to know what kind of hold Esme has, so Spencer tells him about the possible pregnancy. Victor says he can't be sure that he's the father, but Spencer feels responsible. Victor says they can pay her off or give the baby to better parents. He says he can work it so as not to tie Spencer down. Victor tells Spencer about Trina's arrest.
Esme's thrilled to see the headline that Trina was arrested. Nikolas checks in with her about staying at Kelly's. Esme complains about not having access to her trust fund, but is thankful for Nikolas' kindness.
Nikolas says he doesn't trust her because she went after Ava. Esme claims she helped Spencer because he was in so much pain. Esme wonders why Nikolas is helping her if he doesn't trust her, then realizes that he's doing it to keep an eye on her. Nikolas asks if she really cares about Spencer and she swears she does. Esme lays it on thick that everyone hates her, including Sonny. Esme shows Nikolas the arrest report and he wonders if Trina is out of Spencer's life and if it means they're back together.
Sonny interrupts Carly and Ava's discussion about Avery's schedule to let Ava know that Trina was arrested. Both women are shocked and believe Trina was set up by Esme. Ava's determined to make someone pay for this.
Sonny's upset with Carly for not telling him about Josslyn's problems. He says he sees Josslyn as his daughter and is determined to make whoever did this pay. Carly says they need to prove Esme did it. Carly says she will make her pay. Carly tells him that Josslyn asked for Sonny not to be involved. Sonny says he'll take care of it.
