Set Summer 2003
Nine months earlier, Elizabeth Webber stormed out of Jason Morgan’s penthouse, declaring their fledgling relationship dead in the water. Even as they try to stay away from one another, the universe drags them back together. Scared and pregnant, she agrees to marry Ric Lansing despite his troubled past and hatred for Sonny Corinthos—Jason’s best friend and his new fiancee’s brother. Elizabeth soon suffers a miscarriage, putting her future with Ric in doubt.
The night Jason is due to marry Courtney Matthews, Sonny’s pregnant wife, Carly, goes missing, and the only suspect is Ric. When Jason and Sonny arrive at the Lansing home, they find Elizabeth showing signs of being drugged, and Ric smugly declaring he never left the home. Before they can investigate further, the Port Charles Police Department gets involved, complicating everything. Jason and Sonny are not only searching for Carly, they’re trying to fend off search warrants and vendettas.
Sonny starts to fall apart while Jason tries to get Elizabeth away from Ric and find out what happened to Carly. Elizabeth refuses to go—convinced she can do better to stay in the house and help Jason with access to Ric’s papers and property. Nine months of staying away from one another hasn’t changed anything, and the more they work together to find Carly, the more they remember exactly why they fell in love in the first place. Elizabeth’s determination to find Carly may cost her own life—how much is she willing to risk?
