On today’s General Hospital recap: Spencer says he's there for Trina. When she asks about Nikolas, Spencer's quick to badmouth his father. Trina offers to be there to listen if he wants to talk, but Spencer says it's not her problem anymore.

Nikolas stands up and appears to be about to grab Ava's pillow when Trina walks in and questions what he's doing. Nikolas plays it off and claims Ava had plenty of enemies who would want to do this to her. Trina wonders why now and Nikolas says an attack like this must be from someone who hated Ava very much. Trina points out it could also have been someone who used to love her.

Lucy wants to talk to Valentin about Sasha's arrest and how it will affect Deception. Lucy says Sasha has to go for the sake of the company. Valentine's unsure why Lucy's coming to him since he's a silent partner and tells her to vote Sasha out. Lucy worries that will make things worse for Sasha and is thrilled when Valentin mentions he spoke to Martin about it.

Lucy admits she's worried about Martin, but Valentin reminds her she was fawning all over Victor at the picnic. Lucy says she didn't put the moves on Victor. Valentin thinks she was working Victor and wonders why, but Lucy denies it.

Sasha meets with a therapist for a psychiatric exam before meeting with the judge. The therapist says they should appoint Brando as her guardian, which does not sit well with Sasha. Brando says it could lighten her sentence and Sasha can't understand why he has stopped believing in her. The therapist reminds Sasha that she attacked someone, leaving her with two choices, conservatorship or prison. Sasha refuses and storms out.
