On today’s General Hospital recap: Liz tells Finn that Nikolas was lying about the alibi. She also admits she doesn't know where she was and she lost time again. Liz says she needs help and Finn agrees to help her. Liz says she blacked out after their fight and came back to herself when Nikolas showed up with no memory of where she'd been.

Finn doesn't think she would hurt Ava, but Liz reminds him how she hurt Chase. Liz says she could have come across Ava and perceived her as a threat. Finn feels something had to have triggered it.

Liz tells him about the memories from her teen years where she was fighting some woman about her father. Finn thinks the trigger is her anger during their fights, but Liz said she had the same memory when she was on the stairs. Liz doesn't think it has to do with her grief over Franco, but there's something wrong with her. Finn says it's something from her past she's not dealing with. Liz says she was pushing it down, but she needs to face it. Finn promises to help find answers together.

Trina calls out for help and a doctor shows up to check on Ava. The doctor tells Nikolas that Ava's blood pressure dropped, but he stabilized her. He thinks she'll regain consciousness soon.

Jordan wants an alibi from Victor. He claims he was with Spencer, which Jordan disputes, saying Spencer was by himself being sick. Jordan says Nikolas was with Liz and asks again where Victor was during the time of the attack. Victor dismisses the question and for whatever reason Jordan lets it go. (Oy vey, she's incompetent: Where were you? None of your business. Alrighty then, I'll question you again another time. Uhm what?)

Jordan and Nikolas are present when Ava opens her eyes. Nikolas doesn't want Jordan questioning her. Ava wants to know what happened and Jordan tells her she was stabbed. Ava says she was alone at the boathouse and didn't see who attacked her.

Jordan questions where Ava was before that and Nikolas tries to shut down the questioning. Ava tells Jordan that she and Nikolas had a fight about Spencer. Jordan chastises Nikolas for claiming that Ava wasn't upset and questions why he lied. Nikolas spins a yarn about the Cassadines having epic arguments and claims he deeply regrets fighting with Ava. Nikolas puts on a show of remorse because he left Ava alone to be injured.

After Jordan leaves Ava cringes away from Nikolas’ touch and he begs her not to think that he did this. Nikolas swears that he would never do this and begs her to believe him. Ava asks him to leave her alone.
