Things kick off with a major, game-changing incident: Claudia Zacchara gets in a serious car accident, and the fate of her and Sonny's unborn baby (yep, it's his) hang in the balance. This means some hugely tough decisions for both Sonny and Claudia to make regarding their child.
Meanwhile, the possible suspects get narrowed down to Michael or Kristina, causing major tension for Sonny, Claudia, Carly, Jason, Alexis -- pretty much everyone. Carly's status as an eyewitness further complicates things ... and it's not helping HER delicate pregnancy either.
Of course, Michael and Kristina aren't the only suspects. Suspicion also falls on Alexis, which doesn't do a lot to help her combative mother/daughter relationship with Kristina. And the "favor" that Alexis asks of Sam isn't helping make the lady lawyer look any more innocent. Either way, one of these three people turns themselves in to the cops this week.
All this, PLUS: Maxie keeps trying to avoid Spinelli after he pops a most intriguing question. Yes, the Jackal has asked Maxie to be his bride -- and Maxie is freaking out! But she finds it awfully hard to resist when she gets a look at the ring Spinelli got for her.
