Robin Scorpio developed a
crush on Stone, although her uncle Mac had no use for him whatsoever.
Luke and Laura Spencer
got good news- their son Lucky would recover from the shooting that
nearly killed him. Realizing that Frank Smith was plotting his own
prison break-out, Luke told Laura he'd spring Frank- then have a final
show-down with him. Laura didn't like what Luke was proposing, but she
trusted him to make things right. She found a "safe house" for
Luke to bring Frank to after his escape.
Jagger stopped his brother Stone from driving the getaway van that would
carry Frank Smith out of jail.
In the botched Frank
Smith prison break, Sonny Corinthos took two bullets and was rescued by
Brenda Barrett. A mob doctor patched Sonny up. In the midst of this
life-threatening crisis, Brenda realized that she had truly fallen for
this sexy and dangerous man.
At the safe house, Luke intended to shoot Frank, but Laura arrived.
Frank grabbed Laura as a shield and got away, later letting her go. Luke
finally managed to get Frank Smith to leave him alone, using
incriminating information that he had discovered about Smith's daughter,
Jennifer. Luke and Laura were finally safe! And Laura was pregnant!
Later in the year, Laura gave birth to a daughter, Lesley Lu.
Lucky and Sly found a gun
and a blood-stained dressing gown while playing in the attic. Luke and
Laura found a body in their yard! It was Bradley Ward, Mary-Mae's
long-missing son! He'd been murdered! Bradley's son Justus, a lawyer,
came to Port Charles for the funeral along with his cousin, Keesha. She
began dating Jason Quartermaine. Neither Mary-Mae nor Edward seemed
pleased that their grandchildren were dating. Later, evidence in the
Bradley Ward murder pointed to Edward as the killer! He was indicted.
Edward swore to Mary-Mae that he didn't kill her son. She told him that
she knew that. It was revealed that Bradley was Edward and Mary-Mae's
son. Edward was acquitted.
2/9- Dr. Ryan Chamberlain also escaped from his prison cell and traded places
with his brother, Kevin. He showed up at Felicia and Mac's wedding
wearing a bomb! Ryan was captured. In the aftermath, Mac and Felicia's
wedding was called off. But Paul and Jenny seized the moment and married
in an impromptu and heartfelt ceremony.
Mac and Felicia postponed
their wedding again when Felicia's daughter Maxie became terribly ill.
Maxie desperately needed a heart transplant, and it was highly unlikely
a match would be found. Mac and Felicia stood vigil at Maxie's bedside.
Finally, Mac brought Frisco home.
Damian bet Lucy that he
could charm any woman she could name into bed. She picked Bobbie Jones
and Damian set out to win her affections. It worked -- Bobbie fell for
Damian's charms. At the hospital, Tony was stunned to see Damian and
Bobbie embracing. Tony punched Damian out and stormed off. His
confrontation with Bobbie was interrupted by news that their daughter
BJ's school bus had been hit by a drunk driver. BJ was badly hurt. As
soon as Tony saw her, he knew she was brain dead. He made a decision. He
told Bobbie they had to donate BJ's heart to her little cousin Maxie.
When the transplant was completed, Tony put his head on Maxie's chest
and heard BJ's heart beating. A miracle!
Damian learned that Lucy
helped Luke Spencer discover he'd used mob money to buy his major share
