    Ava and Steve met while hailing a cab. This was during a time when Stefano had him brainwashed so to speak and he didn't know who he was. They got together and though her father hated Steve, the two went to Vegas to elope,but Steve stood Ava up and she never saw him again.

    Years later, Ava Vitali came find Steve (Patch) Johnson, February 8 2008, in Ireland, during the family meeting with Colleen Brady, as a mysterious woman. Ava had her cousins 'goons' sabotage the plane in order for her to have time to talk to Patch and hopefully get back together with him. She has been having migraines and wants to pick up where they left off. She's obsessed with Steve so much so that she kidnapped Hope - with whom she thinks is Kayla. She then kidnapped Steve, shortly thereafter and wants him back in her life. Ava is delusional and her cousins and father lock her up in her room and demand she not be let out.

    After Bo and Kayla find Steve and Hope, Ava holds them prisoner too. She finally reveals the root of her resentment towards Steve, as she tells everyone what happened on the day of her and Steve's wedding. Abe and Roman finally find them all and arrest Ava, but she is immediately taken to University hospital because she suffers a seizure. There, Kayla discovers that Ava's father kept her on drugs that made her delusional. She is treated at University hospital and released on bail from police custody.

    Not to her surprise, Earl Lawson and Ava’s psychiatrist end up dead. Finally free from the influence of those drugs, Ava remembers that her mother was going to leave Martino years before so Martino had her killed. Martino finally confesses to a distressed Ava that he had her put on the wrong medication so that she wouldn't remember the horrible truth. As Martino pulls his gun on Bo to resist arrest, Bo shoot and kills him.

    After her father's death, Ava tried to leave her past behind her and make new friends. It wasn't easy at all but she befriended Nicole walker, who
    helped her to get out there and date again. She sought psychiatric help from Marlena, but Marlena felt she wouldn't be objective as her Psychiatrist so gave her some advice and turned her away. Because she was going to be sent to jail for kidnapping Hope, who she thought was Kayla,
    and for holding Steve and Kayla hostage as well, she hired lawyer, E.J. DiMera to defend her. She met and got to know John Black, much to Marlena's dismay, and the two forged a relationship. She encouraged John to move on from his past and embrace the new person he's become. Their
    relationship was short lived when Ava decided to flee town, thinking it was likely that she'd lose her case and go to jail. She left John a letter
    explaining that she loves him but she couldn't risk being locked up ever again.

    At the mansion, Ava bounces on the sofa next to John and snuggles close. She is happy she gets to stay with John for a long time, since she's not being extradited. John can't get the situation with Paul off his mind. That could be Morgan in the hospital and he says Philip taking a bullet wasn't part of the design. Ava knows Philip will be fine, then once he is, they'll pin everything on him! She could strangle Eddie for being so careless. John tells her Rolf will clean up all the blood and he'll show her something that will take away all her fears!

Ava realizes Bo Brady made the evidence disappear, since he's Philip's brother! John can't let go of Paul until Philip has been framed for his murder. John admits Morgan is falling in love with Philip and since he took a bullet for her, he's her hero! Paul is incensed! Ava leaves the men alone and John explains what happened. Paul thinks Eddie is either stupid or crazy, for thinking Morgan had a gun, and yells that he has to get out of there and set Morgan straight about Philip. John asks for patience. Soon, Morgan will have nothing to do with Philip. John thinks Paul's lucky to be alive and he should be grateful that his men dragged him from the water.
