*Final Countdown - An Act Of Violence Forever Changes The Corinthos
There's been a slight chill in the loving marriage of Carly and Sonny in the
wake of Julian's acquittal over Carly's fear that Sonny will incite a new wave
of Port Charles violence by going after Julian. She has implored her hubby to
let the matter lie, but she's unconvinced - and with good reason - that her
words will have the effect she desires. Sonny calls Carly out on the emotional
distance between them. Sonny wants to make Carly happy, but this is his
business. As a result of the potential conflict this would inject into his
marriage, Sonny is struggling with whether or not to indulge his impulse to
target Julian. Sonny does get where Carly is coming from - and expects his wife
to return the favor. As Sonny is weighing his options, other people in his life
- cop son Dante and trusted confidante Jason - chime in with their opinion, and
neither is supportive of Sonny's thirst for vengeance. While they are on
opposite sides of the Julian issue, Carly and Sonny present a unified front when
it comes to their troubled son, Morgan, whose impulsive decision to enroll at
PCU ends in disaster. Morgan doesn't take too kindly to their show of concern.
Morgan isn't the only offspring whose emotional well-being gives Sonny and Carly
reason to fret: Michael, who is understandably despondent over the recent murder
of would-be fiancée Sabrina, has vowed to make her killer pay - and the police
are closing in on said killer, Paul. At week's end, Sonny's decision about
ending Julian's life and the reckless actions of one of the sons he shares with
Carly result in an event with catastrophic repercussions for the entire
Corinthos clan. There will be very serious consequences. Ones that Carly's sixth
sense tells her is coming. Dante pleads with Carly to do something to stop Sonny
from going after Julian, but she tells him that she has done everything she can.
Carly tells Dante that she hopes he can succeed. The fallout will majorly
challenge the Corinthos's union.

Sonny has a crisis of conscience.
Kiki reveals her true feelings.
Alexis takes a turn for the worse.
