She ends up leaving the family to become an ally of Sonny Corinthos. She was for the time the lover of his son Morgan. When Sonny discovered she was the one who killed his fiancee Connie Falconeri (and framed A.J. Quartermaine for it), he sought to kill her for it, but discovered she is pregnant with either his child or Morgan's and must wait until the baby is born now. Ava has a volatile personality and will go to any means necessary to get whatever she wants.
She is played by Maura West.
