The Verdict Is In For Carly!
When testimony in Carly’s trial wraps up and her fate stands to be determined by a judge, the mood in the courtroom is anything but jubilant for the defendant and her husband, Sonny. The judge doesn’t take long to deliberate, and Carly, Jason, Sonny, Michael and the “victim”, Nelle, are present when he renders his verdict: Guilty by reason of insanity. Sonny and Carly are relieved that her strategy worked. But the celebration is short-lived, as DA Margaux makes a strong case for why Carly should not be sent to Shadybrook, but rather a state facility for the criminally insane. Carly is dragged off to Ferncliff, leaving her loved ones shocked and horrified. When Mrs. Corinthos arrives at her new state-mandated home, she realizes she won’t find friends at Ferncliff and possibly already made an imposing foe. Ferncliff has tightened security, so it won’t be as lax for Carly as it has been for some previous inmates. Which puts the onus on Jason, Michael and Sonny, who each resolves to find a way to get Carly out of Ferncliff ASAP!

The kidnapper also has plans for Nina, who will be forced into a co-conspirator role in Peter’s kidnapping. Nina ducks out of the cabin to deal with another pressing matter: Her divorce from Valentin. While seeking legal representation, she also pokes around to find out what the consequences might be for not coming forward with Peter’s location.

Carly Pleads Not Guilty!
Though Carly did not intentionally push Nelle down the stairs at the epically disastrous baby shower at the Quartermaine mansion, her attorney, Diane, convinces her that her best chance at freedom is to enter a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity. Believing herself to be very much in her right mind, it’s a hard sell on Carly, but she ultimately acquiesces to Diane’s counsel. Carly expects, as a result of her plea, to be sent to a mental institution rather than prison. While Sonny supports his wife’s decision, he’s also anguished by it. But when Carly’s arraignment arrives, their plan may not bear the fruit she, Diane and Sonny were expecting, as Diane faces off with a tough adversary: Port Charles’s newest prosecutor, Margaux.

*Early Editions*

*Ratings for 4/30: 1.7

*Hot Plots Preview – Drew‘s Memory Move*
Despite his major misgivings, Andre prepares to move ahead with the high-risk request Drew has made: to strip him of Jason’s memories in hopes that he will recover his missing life experiences as Drew Cain. Since Andre doesn’t have the flash drive containing Drew’s memory map (because Peter swiped it), he doesn’t know if it will work. When Franco gets wind of what they’re discussing, he advises Drew to rethink his eagerness to put his life in Andre’s hands.

Franco isn’t entirely supportive on 5/29, while Peter issues a demand and Kiki turns to Liz.
Jason is noncommital on 5/30, while Alexis wants to get to the root of the problem and Peter has leverage.
Obrecht places blame on 5/31, while Ava discourages Griffin and Valentin tries to defend himself.

*Summer Preview*
Peter has a card up his sleeve that could grant him freedom, but fate - or certain individuals - may thwart that plan in an unexpected way. Maxie has come to grips with her feelings about Peter, who befriended her and betrayed her. Anna is torn between trying to reconcile herself with Peter’s actions and making peace with Robin, who has questions about Anna’s early behavior. Valentin desperately tries to smooth the waters with Nina, but may need some other intervention to successfully win her back.
With Carly willing to falsify a guilty plea for the greater good, she and Sonny are hopeful they can get back on track and move forward. However, they have to fight great odds as they remain a team, but from afar. Sonny will cope with Mike’s deteriorating health. During moments of lucidity, Mike reveals more about what happened in Croton to Sonny, who wants to get to the bottom of the situation.
Jason becomes more entrenched in Corinthos family matters and will find himself in some precarious situations trying to clear Carly’s name. Jason will play a very great role in Michael’s life moving forward.
Sam’s desire to be a private eye has been reinvigorated and she teams up with Curtis. Their first case will keep her in the orbit of both Jason and Drew - whether any of them want that or not.
Drew knows he can’t go on living someone else’s old life, but if this process isn’t successful, he will have to find a way to live with the missing situation- unless the missing flash drive were to miraculously turn up.
Alexis takes a step back to look at her experience with men in general. Julian will continue keeping company with Kim, but can they move past their longing for the people they can’t be with?
Liz and Franco try to find a new wedding date. Franco thinks it might be nice to include more of the bride’s family this time, leading them both in a direction neither was prepared for.
Finn and Anna try to build a new relationship, since they’ve finally declared their feelings for one another. Robert will figure into it though, as Anna tries to build a relationship with her son.
Ava and Griffin try to re-establish their relationship, but Griffin’s one-night stand with Kiki will weigh heavily on him. Meanwhile, Kiki’s situation with Dr. Bensch comes to a head and she makes a strong stand to prevent it from happening again.
Lulu and Dante have had an ongoing conflict about the toll their careers may be taking on their marriage.
Jordan and Curtis are building toward ultimate happiness and Stella seems to have accepted the union - publicly! However, privately, it may prove to be a different story.
Lucas and Brad are looking forward to the arrival of the child they plan to adopt, but they are anxious about the law allowing the birth mother to change her mind. Julian will do what he can to see his son happy!
A historic connection will be revealed between Chase and someone on the canvas, connecting him with some very surprising people.
A surprising foil may prevent Nelle from getting what she wants. Michael will have an opportunity to prove himself as both a Quartermaine and a Corinthos man of some power.
Elizabeth Hendrickson’s new character, Margaux, will be the DA assigned to Carly’s case.
Due to events in her family, Josslyn will be rudderless. Hopefully, Oscar can be her anchor. We will be seeing more of Cameron.

*What Will Happen:
Carly looks on the bright side.
Jason offers words of encouragement.
Maxie feels foolish.
