Carly walks in on AJ and Michael at the Quartermaine mansion. She demands to know why he isn’t dead and is  sure the cops will want an explanation. She starts dialing as Monica runs in. Michael begs her not to call the cops. Carly can’t believe it. AJ kidnapped him and took picture of him lying in a swamp to convince them he was dead! Michael just wants her to hold off for him so he can get some answers. She calls Dante anyway and tells him AJ is alive. Monica smacks her across the face and tells AJ to run but he won’t. He’ll go to prison as long as he gets to see Michael, even just once a week from behind bars.
