On today's General Hospital recap: Carly tells Sam she believes Esme is behind the sex tape and wants to know what the PCPD knows. Sam says Dante isn't discussing anything with her and all she knows is the evidence points to Trina. Carly pleads her case, but Sam says she can't get information from Dante. Carly tells her about Sonny bringing in Esme and how the Cassadine men rallied around her. Sam worries about Victor's involvement.
ADA Arden checks in with Jordan about more evidence against Trina. Dante questions why she's going so hard at Trina, but Arden says it's a felony crime and she's going to prosecute her to the fullest extent.
Jordan tells Dante she doesn't believe Trina is guilty and Dante agrees. The two realize that Arden will go hard unless they find evidence that exonerates Trina. Jordan doesn't want Trina to go to prison for a crime she didn't commit.
Jordan gets the forensics back and lets Dante know the phone had Trina's fingerprints all over it. The phone shows that someone did an online fine arts purchase with Trinas' credit card. Jordan believes this is the evidence that Arden will use to convict Trina. Jordan says it's time to look into Esme, but that they need to be methodical and careful.
Ava's surprised to see Trina at the gallery and is happy she's not hiding out. Ava tells Trina that Spencer and Esme are back at Wyndemere, but not really together. Ava explains to Trina that Sonny had a chat with Esme and Nikolas came to her rescue.
Ava also mentions how things are tense with Nikolas, which makes Trina blame herself. Ava says she's staying at Wyndemere so she can keep an eye on Esme, despite being in a separate room from Nikolas. Trina points out it's exactly what Spencer and Esme want. Trina says it's all Esme and to not give her the satisfaction. She tells Ava to show Esme that her marriage to Nikolas is stronger than Esme's scheme.
Esme sets out a spread of food as a thank you for Nikolas to let her stay. She plays the poor, poor you, you're sleeping in separate rooms, card, but Nikolas is quick to reassure her there's nothing wrong with his marriage. Both Nikolas and Spencer agree that Esme is better protected from Sonny at Wyndemere.
