This week, get ready for a new definition to the term "power couple." Sonny and Claudia (Maurice Benard and Sarah Brown) decide to get married! No, aliens have not taken over their bodies. Although that hasn't been done before in daytime, so anything's possible. Anyway, it's all part of Sonny's secret plan to get close to Claudia's dad, Anthony. You see, Sonny believes Anthony shot Kate (Megan), Sonny's former fiancee, and wants to prove it. As for Claudia, she knows that being Mrs. Corinthos would make her a power player. Obviously, Port Charles (especially Kate, Carly and Johnny) won't take this nuptial news lightly. You'll be surprised at who actually encourages Sonny to go through with this plan. But how will Sonny react when he finds out Claudia was responsible for putting his son Michael into a coma? We doubt he's going to buy her a new China pattern.
Meanwhile, Jason's (Steve Burton) starting a full on war with the late Karpov's allies. But war is messy, and things often don't go according to plan. Case in point: Jason shoots Sam (Kelly Monaco)! Hey Jason, get some glasses! The problems are just starting for Mr. Morgan, though. His efforts to protect Liz (Rebecca Herbst) by isolating her in the woods only attract the attention of the Russian mob. Look for an unlikely ally to help Liz out!
Maxie (Kirsten Storms), who witnessed the Russian mob set fire to Kelly's, is attacked and knocked unconscious by the thugs. When Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) finds her, he admits his love to the conked-out Maxie and vows to avenge her. Raiding Stone Cold's arsenal, Spinelli's got a gun. Will he use it? CAN he use it? (Last time he shot himself in the foot. Literally.)
All this PLUS: Jax (Ingo Rademacher) becomes Nikolas' (Tyler Christopher) new landlord, Robin (Kimberly McCullough) and Patrick (Jason Thompson) get a crash course in parenthood, Tracy (Jane Elliot) overhears some startling information, and Kate decides to tell Sonny about his son with Olivia (Lisa LoCicero). Also, Olivia yells at Jason, which is awesome because we love when she yells at people.
