THE INSIDE STORY

Sonny believes the Zacchara’s are behind Kate’s shooting and Michael’s disappearance. Seeking answers, Sonny has a standoff with Claudia, who once again has seduction on her mind. Sonny begins to play Claudia’s little game, but when Jason arrives Claudia departs in a fit of rage. Johnny is knocked unconscious and kidnapped by two thugs hired by Sonny. Humiliated, Claudia pays a visit to Kate, but Kate takes a turn for the worse. Sonny warns Claudia about consequences and leaves her with an ominous message about Johnny. Sonny presents himself to Johnny, who is being held captive in a padded room at an abandoned psychiatric clinic. Claudia tries to make a deal with Jason and warns him that there will be hell to pay if Sonny harms Johnny. A worried Lulu is looking for Johnny, but finds herself meeting Claudia instead. Claudia learns that Sonny is holding Johnny hostage and vows revenge. Claudia returns to General Hospital with the intention of revealing a secret to Kate, which when revealed could spell the end for Kate and Sonny’s relationship.

A CLOSER LOOK

The Text Message Killer is revealed to be Diego Alcazar. Diego reveals that it is because of Jason and Sonny that all the women he killed had to die. Maxie finds herself at Sam’s door, but exits before she realizes Diego’s presence – Sam is not as fortunate. Diego ties Sam up and hauls her to his warehouse lair. Diego reveals the final phase in his plans for revenge against Sonny and Jason while planting explosives in the warehouse. Sam attempts to escape, but is recaptured just as Elizabeth finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time. Diego knocks Elizabeth out and handcuffs her in his car with Sam bound and gagged in the trunk. A gun-battle escalates between Max and Diego and their vehicles crash. Seeing an opportunity, Elizabeth tries to rescue Sam. Lucky comes onto the scene hoping to save Sam and Elizabeth, but gun fire is aimed his way.
