Scorpio Returns - And Sam And Jason Reunite!
Anna get more than they bargained for when they and Emma arrive in Switzerland
on the hunt for Henrik: She gets a surprise visit from Scorpio, while he has a
chance encounter with Sam. When Scorpio expresses his intent to participate in
her mission, she doesnít mind the help, but doesnít want any interference. Emma,
meanwhile, is just happy for the chance to play superspy alongside her
grandparents. When Jason excuses himself from Annaís presence to let the Scorpio
clan catch up, he runs into Sam, who is in Switzerland to sort out her
conflicted feelings for Drew and Jason. Soon, they get word that Spinelliís own
efforts to track down Henrik have landed him in jail. Jason is quick to spring
into action to try to help his pal, and at least at first, Sam is eager to join

When an earthquake

understandable reservations about him leaving the relatively safe Quartermaine
mansion, his family does understand. The Corinthos clan is spread across the
city at the start of the crisis. Sonny returns home to find Michael there, but
Michael is one of the early potential victims. Making matters worse, Sonny canít
account for the whereabouts of his Alzheimerís-stricken father, Mike, or his
wife, Carly. Carly is at Avaís gallery having it out with Nelle when the quake
occurs. A number of characters are trapped at The Floating Rib, where the
alternative dance Oscar and Josslyn planned is in full swing. The hosts,
meanwhile, have taken a very inopportune time to sneak away for a moment. While
ushering the other children to safety, Kim and Drew realize that Oscar and
Josslyn are not among the kids, so Drew needs to call on a past he may not even
recall to aid his son. Opposite this, the guests at Elizabeth and Francoís
wedding are facing disaster-related hardship of their own. Elizabeth is upset
that Franco hasnít shown up. Franco finds himself in a situation where his only

Liz and Franco arenít the
