Useful information on Carlos Rivera
* Was involved with Sabrina Santiago in Puerto Rico before they came to Port Charles.
Current: Associate with the Jerome crime family
Carlos Rivera was spoken of before arriving in Port Charles when Sabrina Santiago told Patrick about her life in Puerto Rico before moving to town, and her ex-boyfriend Carlos. When the Jerome family came back to Port Charles to take over Sonny Corinthos’ mob territory, Carlos came with them as one of their associates. He had been with the family for years and was deeply entrenched in the operation.
Carlos looked at this as an opportunity to start things back up with Sabrina, but she was seriously involved with Dr. Patrick Drake. She put off Carlos and reminded him how unsupportive he had been of her nursing career, but he insisted he was a changed man and would do anything to win her back. He was insistent that Patrick wasn’t over his dead wife Robin Scorpio Drake, and planted a seed of doubt in Sabrina’s mind about the strength of their relationship. But Carlos’ plan seemed to backfire when Patrick was spurred to remove his wedding ring and fully commit to Sabrina.
Patrick proposed and he and Sabrina planned their wedding. When Carlos saw Robin in the lab of General Hospital, he told Sabrina that Patrick’s wife was still alive, but she assumed it was another ploy to ruin her relationship. But Carlos was proved right when Robin showed up at Sabrina’s wedding to Patrick before they said "I do." Sabrina got drunk and turned to Carlos for comfort. She woke up in his bed with no memory of what had happened, but he insisted they did not have sex.
Carlos was taken hostage by Sonny and his associate Shawn Butler. They had plans to kill him to send a message to Julian, but Carlos told Sonny he was the half-brother of Sonny’s ex-wife Lily Rivera and he was spared. When TJ Ashford came to the warehouse he released Carlos and a gunfight broke out. Carlos was shot but escaped and went to Sabrina to help him heal.
While Carlos was recuperating he overheard Sabrina tell her best friend Felix DuBois that she was pregnant with Patrick’s baby. Carlos offered to claim the baby as his. She initially resisted, but then told Patrick the baby belonged to Carlos.
