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.

At the gallery, Carlos tells Ava there’s no way the gun can be traced back to him. He wonders if Ava has lied to him about shooting AJ but she promises him she didn’t do it. He points out AJ was the only one who could ID her as Connie’s shooter – except him. Ava asks Carlos if he’ll give her up. Meanwhile, Jordan tells Julian she knows all about the drug operation and wants in. She knows when and where the shipment came in and that it’s already in the hands of his dealers. She has expertise in distribution and isn’t sloppy like his people. Her reputation is stellar. He thinks she’s wearing a wire for Anna. Anna enters just then with Dante but she’s looking for Carlos. Carlos and Ava turn the corner. Carlos resists and Anna arrests him for attacking an officer. Julian stops Ava from following and demands to know what she’s hiding. Ava apologizes to Jordan and excuses herself to call a lawyer for Carlos. Julian comments how poised Jordan was during the raid but wants her to prove she isn’t wearing a wire. She slowly unbuttons her top. “Are you satisfied with what I am showing you or do you need a more thorough search?” she taunts before walking out.
Back at the station Michael screams at Carlos until he’s taken into interrogation. Anna scolds Michael for his temper tantrums and asks him to let them do their job. In the interrogation room Carlos says he knows nothing about AJ’s shooting. Dante brings out Carlos’ gun and tells him his dealer sold him out. Carlos asks for his lawyer and Dante suggests he talk right now. Outside, Ava gets a call from Sonny – he needs her help.
Carlos gets on the hospital elevator with Michael. He reads AJ's death certificate over his shoulder. Michael wonders why he's so interested. Carlos pays his condolences and wonders if there are any leads in the case. Michael gets to his stop before he can explain much but Carlos gets paranoid.
Ava shows up at the gallery and rants at her brother for getting him arrested. He was doing his civic duty. She rails until he points out she's been feeding information to Sonny. Ava rejects that so he teases her about Morgan. Jordan arrives. Carlos trails in after her and anxiously demands to talk to Ava. They go into a corner and Carlos recaps his run-in with Michael. She reminds him that the cops have the gun he used. He's sure it's untraceable. Meanwhile, Julian assures Jordan that TJ has nothing to worry about from him. Luke arrives and gets flirty with Jordan. Julian sends her to wrap a painting. When she brings it over, Luke says, "Why don't you bring it home with me to make sure it's well hung?" She turns him down. Once Luke leaves, Julian apologizes to Jordan. She tells him that she knows about his drug operation and can help him.
