    CAROLINE "CARLY" CORINTHOS JACKS'S HISTORY

    Carly came to Port Charles in 1996 on a mission - to ruin her mother's life. Bobbie Spencer had given Carly up for adoption and Carly wanted payback. Sleeping with her mom's husband was the best retribution, and it worked! After Carly's fling with Tony was discovered, he and Bobbie divorced. Unfortunately, it didn't bring the happiness Carly had hoped for.

    Luck with men hasn't been her strong suit. Although her brief sexual interlude with Jason formed a lasting friendship, her liaisons with AJ Quartermaine and Lorenzo Alcazar were short-lived. Her most consuming love has been with mobster, Sonny Corinthos, but that's been tumultuous at best. Her children have been kidnapped, she's been held hostage for the child she carried, and she's been at death's door more than once. After her son Michael was shot by a bullet intended for Sonny, she finally looked to the future. She recommited to her husband Jax and coerced Sonny to sign away all rights to his sons.

    Over the following year, her stance against Sonny softened, but they both agreed to keep the distance to protect everyone from the danger his life brings. She recommited to Jax and even got pregnant with his child. She quickly learned, however, that she has a rare blood disorder that could cause her to stroke out and die during pregnancy.

    Michael eventually woke up from his coma, but was angry and often fought with his mother. Claudia kidnapped Carly after she was outted as the one who put Michael's shooting in motion and the women ended up in a cabin where Carly went into labor. Claudia helped her give birth and then tried to run off with the baby, but Michael found them and hit her over the head with an axe handle, thereby killing her.

    Carly, along with Sonny and Jason, spent the next few months trying to protect her son from the cops, while bonding with her new daughter, husband and boys. When the truth about Jax's involvement in Dante's investigation of Sonny was revealed, she took Morgan and Josslyn and moved out of the house.

    Despite everyone's best attempts, Michael went to prison. In the aftermath, Carly and Sonny had sex and then she vowed revenge on Dante and Lulu for their perceived role in Michael's incarceration.

    Carly brought Brook Lynn to town to seduce Dante, thereby breaking up him and Lulu. The plan failed however. Carly then focused on reuniting with Jax, but was distracted again when Brenda returned to town.

    Brenda and Dante's connection made Carly curious, so she made it her mission to discover what they were hiding. She clashed with Jax over his ex and they eventually broke up again. She then discovered Brenda's secret, but Brenda revealed it before Carly could.

    Once that was settled, Carly's next crisis centered on Josslyn, who needed a kidney transplant. After Jake died from getting hit by a car, Carly pleaded with Jason to donate his son's organs to her daughter. Jason appealed to Elizabeth and Lucky and they eventually agreed to the procedure, thereby saving Josslyn's life.

    Once Josslyn's was in the clear, she and Jax clashed over custody.
