On today’s General Hospital recap: Sonny and Nina sit and wait for an update on Ava. Jordan finds Nikolas yelling at a nurse, who hasn't given him an update on Ava, even though he's been waiting all night. Sonny and Nikolas get into it and Jordan is forced to remind them they are in a hospital.

Jordan wants Nikolas to go over the events of the night. Nikolas says he and Ava were all over the grounds during the event, and spoke with Olivia and Sonny. Jordan asks him when he last saw Ava. Nikolas says they were with Spencer, then Ava left. Jordan asks about Ava's state of mind and Nikolas gets angry about being grilled. Jordan says everyone is being questioned and wonders why Nikolas doesn't want to answer her questions.

A detective takes statements from Brook Lynn and Drew. After she leaves, Brook Lynn wonders why Drew seems distracted and thinks it has to do with Carly. Brook Lynn tells him that she and Chase are officially together, and tells Drew not to miss out on anything with Carly.

The doctor tells Nikolas that Ava is out of surgery. She is in serious but stable condition in the ICU. Nina begs Jordan to find whoever did this to Ava.

Carly commends Josslyn for saving Ava's life. Carly mentions that Avery doesn't know anything about Ava yet. Trina arrives and tells them that PCU dropped the Title IX violation and she can go back to school.

Josslyn tells Trina what happened to Ava. Trina worries about Avery and is grateful that Carly is taking care of her. Avery joins them and is thrilled when Sonny shows up. Sonny tells Trina that Ava's in the ICU and tells them Dex will drive them to the hospital. Josslyn tells them Dex saved Ava's life and wouldn't have made it had they waited for the ambulance.

Sonny and Carly explain to Avery that Ava was hurt, but she can't see her because she's too young. Avery asks to see Nikolas and Sonny decides to take her to the hospital.

Victor wakes up a hungover Spencer. He accuses Victor of being the one to attack Ava, but Victor denies it. Spencer says he wouldn't have done the dirty work himself, but would have sent an operative. Spencer thinks Victor should head to Cassadine Island until this all blows over.

Victor says he didn't do it because he wouldn't have left Ava alive and Spencer with no clear alibi. Victor turns it back on Spencer, saying it could have been him since Ava controls his money and threw the tryst in his face. Victor says Spencer has as much reason to kill Ava as anyone. Spencer says Ava wasn't the one who betrayed him, Nikolas did.

The two wonder where Nikolas was at the time of the attack and Victor says they need to protect Nikolas. Spencer says Nikolas is the worst and doesn't deserve their protection, but Victor wants the family to be strong. Victor tells Spencer not to say anything to the police that would implicate Nikolas. He claims Spencer will get his hands on his birthright sooner rather than later if he protects Nikolas.
