On August 2015, at a Five Families meeting Sonny Corinthos says there is a traitor in the group. Ms. Wu asks him who he is referring to. Vincent Novak wants proof that one of them is responsible. Sonny reveals that this happened in Serge’s territory. Serge claimed he got an offer from someone. Sonny wanted to know who this person was. Serge eventually admits they are in the Jerome family.
Sonny’s enforcer Jason Morgan is presumed dead, Shawn Butler is in prison, and Duke Lavery is dead. He has no one to protect him. Sonny suddenly shoots Serge. Ms. Wu tells everyone to put their guns down. She explains that Serge violated his alliance and Sonny was within his rights to exact justice as he saw fit. She asks if he has someone else that he wants to call out. He says not now but let this be a warning. Vincent Novak says it is always a pleasure to Sonny as he leaves.
On September 2015, Michael Corinthos took Sonny’s place at a Five Families meeting. Vincent Novak asks for a moment of peace to remember Serge as symbolized by the empty chair at the table. Ava shows up for the Jerome family and sits in this chair. Michael wants to know who shot Sonny. Ava claims she recently became the head of the Jeromes and had nothing to do with previous attacks. Ms. Wu tells Ava that she is making a serious claim and an attack on one of them is an attack on them all. Vincent Novak tells Ava to give it up and asks if it was her brother. Ava says it was a well-connected man that they all know.
Michael gets tired of Ava’s vague answers and prepares to leave. Ms. Wu asks if Ava is intending to make enemies because that is what she is doing. Ava clarifies that it was Carlos Rivera who shot Sonny while she knows it was really Paul Hornsby. Ms. Wu asks Ava if she is saying that Carlos killed Duke and went after Sonny with no authorization from Julian Jerome. Ava says that is correct. Michael wants Ava to produce Carlos and she said he disappeared when she became head of the Jeromes. Michael wonders why he wouldn’t stick around to be number two.
Ava suggests that he is only interested in being number one. Michael asks why Carlos is suddenly interested in being the leader since he has been a low-level gangster so far. Ava says that people change and Michael retorts that people lie. Ms. Wu asks Michael what he is implying. He says it is convenient that Carlos isn’t here. Ava says she came to make peace. None of them profit while this conflict persists. Vincent Novak comments that Ava has a point.
Ms. Wu says that the fight between Sonny and the Jeromes has had a damaging repercussion on all of the group. She seconds Vincent Novak’s call for an immediate ceasefire. Michael and Ava agree to peace unless there is an attack. Then Michael will assume the Jeromes are behind it.
On August 2017, Sonny calls a Five Families meeting to announce his retirement. Vincent Novak is in attendance. Ms. Wu tells Sonny they have heard the rumors and says it is unlikely that a man in his position would step down. Sonny explains that Drew Cain (as “Jason”) has already retired and he would be splitting up the rest of his territories between the remaining families except for his legitimate businesses like Corinthos Coffee.
Petrov doesn’t think Sonny would give this all away for free and wants to know the price. Sonny says that “Jason” and his organization will be protected by the other families. Vincent Novak asks if there are any catches or tricks and if all Sonny asks for in return is protection. Sonny says that is right and asks if they have a deal. The deal is agreed with but Petrov tries to kill Sonny after the meeting. Drew (as “Jason”) walks in and is shot and Sonny kills Petrov in retaliation.
On January 14, 2021, Brick tells Jason the Novaks started moving product to town. They began laying groundwork last week. Jason and Brick check on a warehouse on 46 Allen Street where the Novaks were seen. They find the Novaks' men all killed inside the warehouse.
On May 4, Vincent Novak is present at a Five Families meeting.
On June 18, it was revealed a Corinthos driver of about a year named Don Metz took a shipment and made a deal to deliver the goods to the Novak family. Vincent Novak offered to pay double for any Corinthos shipments. Vincent has been telling people the Corinthos organization is weak now that Sonny Corinthos is gone.
On June 21, Jason Morgan calls Tony DiMarco and says that he wants a guard on every Corinthos delivery to discourage the Novaks.
The Novaks want Jason to kill Carly to show he is leading the Corinthos family. Sending her away from town is also an option they consider. Ava gives them the idea to get married and present a united front to the Novaks. Jason blows up a Novak warehouse on the docks while he talks with Carly.
On June 30, Spinelli runs into Joey Novak, the favorite nephew of the boss Vincent Novak.
