On today’s General Hospital recap: 

Jordan tells Spencer he's likely going back to prison and demands answers. Spencer explains about running into Trina at the cemetery, and he came forward and testified for her.

Nikolas says he's been laying the groundwork with the staff that Esme left on her own. Nikolas wants to comfort Ava, but she's still angry about his infidelity. He says it will look suspicious if Ava leaves him right after Esme 'left'. Nikolas gets a call from Spencer that he's been taken to the PCPD. Ava says she won't be there when he gets back. Nikolas says they need to provide a united front so that no one is suspicious about Esme's disappearance.

Trina doesn't understand why Spencer would testify for her and has a hard time processing it all. Rory seems a little distant so Trina thinks he's pulling back because she might end up going to prison. Trina gives him an out if he so chooses, but Rory says he's totally into her. Rory says he's just trying to be there for her, while she rants about Spencer. Trina's glad she took the stand and spoke her truth. Rory wants a chance to get to know her better and the two share a kiss.

Josslyn updates Cameron about what happened with Spencer's testimony, Josslyn wonders why Cameron isn't surprised, and he admits what Spencer's plan was. Josslyn is not happy that Cameron knew and didn't tell her. (What Cam should have said here was, "Joss honey, you have a big fat hypocritical mouth and you would have blown it by crowing to Esme the first chance you got, so shut your pie hole." But apparently Cam's nicer than I am!!)

Cameron tells her the whole story, including the deal to tell Esme about her birth mother. Josslyn thinks if she had been told what was going on she could have helped bring Esme down and they need to work together now.

Nikolas and Martin get to the station to talk to Spencer. Nikolas tells Spencer he's not sure that Trina will be exonerated, no matter his sacrifice. Spencer tells his father to make sure Esme doesn't leave town so she can exonerate Trina.

Spencer explains that he's been trying to find evidence against Esme, but when that didn't work he tried to offer her a deal. Spencer thinks Nikolas will have a better chance at convincing Esme to tell the truth, pointing out that they've gotten closer lately. Nikolas tells Spencer that Esme has already left town.
