Valentin doesn't like this because she was only supposed to stay until his and Nina's September wedding. For her to stay longer, it would make the risk of the secret being revealed greater.
On July 31, Sasha and Michael went to Puerto Rico on vacation and they met a woman named Sandy Lance, who was actually Cassandra Pierce. Sasha told "Sandy" that she was Nina's daughter which took "Sandy" by surprise. "Sandy" invited Sasha and Michael for breakfast at 8:30 the next morning and they accepted her invitation.

Michael was upset at first and as Nina and Valentin entered and asked if they were interrupting, Michael said they were finished and left.

Nina didn't believe Lulu and told Sasha to tell everyone that it wasn't true, but Sasha teared up and revealed that she was not Nina's daughter. Nina didn't believe it initially but realized that it was true and all a con and she was heartbroken and angry by the deception. Everyone was suspicious that Valentin had something to do with the con but Sasha never confirmed it. Michael stood by her and took her out of town after Nina stormed out of the wedding and after Maxie Jones and Lulu Spencer berated her.
On October 11, Sasha told Nina that her actions were her own and tried to convince her that Valentin and Liesl were not involved but Nina didn't buy any of it and threatened to call security if she didn't leave the crimson office. Michael eventually told Sasha at Charlie's Pub that the way she told Nina about Valentin not being involved was wrong, but he understood that her motives were good. He did explain that the way she went about it means she is waiting for another lie to be exposed, however he is still standing by her. On October 16, Sasha was arrested for her mistake so Michael hired Alexis Davis to represent Sasha and Alexis wanted to know what part Valentin played in the scam.

Her friends Willow Tait, Willow's boyfriend Det. Harrison Chase, and Michael all come to her defense. When Michael attempts to deflect the blame of her fraud against Nina, she pulls him away, telling him that she knows what he's doing and to stop it. She insists that she could have walked away, she chose to stay and become close to Nina, she doesn't fault Valentin for what he did. She doesn't want Nina to be any more hurt. Nina and Valentin approach them. Valentin had talked her down, and she lets them know she's going to drop the charges against Sasha.

Liesl then reveals that she influenced the results of a blood test Sasha had while sick with avian flu at GH, to ensure that the results would match Nina if checked. Sasha had no idea, and she and Michael tell Liesl that while they won't say anything, she'll have to cover her own tracks with the lab. Michael then offers Sasha a job at ELQ. She turns him down, saying it would change their dynamic, and she needs to find something on her own. She doesn't want his help, nor his mother's - she wants to work hard and prove herself. He reminds her that Lucy wants to give her a modeling job. She feels being the "Face of Deception" would capitalize on her fraud against Nina, which she doesn't want.

She's pleased, and Sasha thanks her again for her forgiveness.

He realizes after GH runs the samples again and still get a mother/daughter match, that the samples were compromised, not the test. He believes the only one with the means, motive, and opportunity to give her the sample, was Valentin. Michael claims he's making a lot of assumptions.

She explains they are going to take the history of the company, with glamor and style to target the current generation, which pleases her. The investor agrees to finance the company, and leaves Lucy giddy. Sasha reminds her she has no intention of modeling. Photo-shoots, public appearances, and press tours do not appeal to her. She wants a stake in the company, an equity partnership, so she will have a stake in the product. Lucy agrees, offering 1.5%. Michael counters with 50, Lucy with 2.

He admits that she's going to be a target. He offers to let her move in to the Quartermaine Mansion to keep her safe.

She goads her about seeing each other a lot, by telling her Michael invited to her to live in the Q mansion. Carly overhears and claims she's lying.
On January 29, Sasha and Willow go for lunch at the Metro Court Hotel. They discuss Nelle, and Willow admits she's freaking out over Brad and his decisions, that he would let someone like Nelle anywhere near his son. She doesn't think she can let Brad raise her son alone if Lucas never recovers, despite signing over her rights. Sasha comforts her, telling her take what she's feeling and put it into action, that they will all support her if it's for Wiley.
Moments later, Cyrus Renault's men ambush them in a shootout. Dustin Phillips, Lulu's boyfriend and Josslyn's teacher, stops the gunman and chases after him. Sasha, Michael, and Josslyn are okay, but Mayor Laura Collins was shot. Josslyn calls an ambulance, and Sasha and Michael work to keep Laura from bleeding out, elevating her feet, and comforting her.

Sasha accompanies Michael back to Greystone. It's crawling with guards now, and Carly's whereabouts are still unknown. Michael gets a call from his uncle Jason Morgan, who tells him that Carly is fine and they were definitely targeted. Michael comforts Dev, assigns him to watch over his little sister, Avery Jerome-Corinthos to help him feel safe, and Sasha asks Michael how many times this has happened. Not calm someone down, but rather explain away why someone is trying to kill them. She is concerned about there being more danger, that Michael could have died right in front of her. Jax and Josslyn show up, and Sasha profusely thanks her for her quick thinking and saving their lives. Josslyn informs them that Corinthos cousin, Gladys Corbin's son [[Brando Corbin (Johnny Wactor)}Brando]] showed up unexpectedly and saved Carly and his mom, getting shot in the process. They all thought he was dead, Jax explaining that Gladys must have lied to protect something. Sasha wonders if it's good news that Dev's "dad" is alive and in Port Charles.
Reading the tension in the room, Sasha excuses herself so the rest can discuss Brando. Michael goes out to Sasha on the deck, and he regretfully tells her they need to stop seeing each other. He fears what is coming, that this shooting is just the beginning, and is desperate to keep her safe. She reminds him that he supported her when she went through hell, one of her own making. He thinks she's the best person he knows, but his father has enemies. She wants to keep him safe too. He insists they have to walk away from each other, and ends up admitting he loves her. She tearfully admits she feels the same, and that they are going to get through this together, consequences be damned. They kiss.
On February 4, Sasha greets Jax at Greystone Manor. They discuss Michael, his goodness and loyalty. Jax tells her that while Michael actively tries to stay out of Sonny's business, that business doesn't always stay away from him.

Ned reminds him of all the children in and around the mansion, and that a warning would have been nice. Michael then give Sasha a drink and tells her about life at the mansion. Nelle makes a snide remark about being her a breakfast guest, to which Sasha tells her that she's moving in. Nelle snarks that she's Michael's ex-wife and Sasha is just his 'temporary mistress.' Michael reminds her they were never legally married, and that he's moving Nelle into the boathouse. Nelle calls Sasha a fraud, Sasha responds that she's a murderer. Nelle thinks Michael has a type, wonders why Sasha is different and won't be in the boathouse. Sasha responds that she'll be in his bed. Nelle's lawyer Martin Gray shows up, and Michael gives her a new offer for her ELQ shares, that she can buy her own place. She rips it up and goes to the living room to confer with her lawyer. Sasha worries to Michael that she's like Nelle, and he assures her she's not.
On February 14, Sasha and Michael have dinner at Kelly's, and she tells him "Deception" has interest from an Italian department store chain. The discuss what it's like to run a business. How being good can sometimes not be good enough. Nelle interrupts them, making a snide remark that they are following her. She tells Michael she will allow one last offer for her shares, and it better be good. He tells her she's obsessing, that she only has a claim to the shares, that Oscar's will hasn't been probated yet, and they will get their shares back. Nelle then informs them that Brad and Lucas are moving to Portland with Wiley. He tells her he can visit every weekend, to which Nelle storms out angrily. Sasha is impressed with him, they agree keeping Wiley across the country from Nelle might be best, and hug.
On February 19, while attending Brad and Lucas' farewell party, Michael finally learns that Wiley is his son when Lucas told him after his memory of that night returned.

They shift the conversation to "Deception." Lucy is crazy as ever, but they are having lots of meetings and she thinks they are exciting times. They realize their priorities are changing, her with a new business, and him as a new dad. He tells her he wants to be with her, for her to be in his life, but he doesn't expect her to suddenly be an insta-mom to Wiley. She tells him not everything needs to be defined. They love each other, she adores Wiley and knows he obviously comes first. She is hoping they can just take it as it comes, if he's comfortable with it. He agrees. She has to leave for a conference call with Italy, they agree to dinner after.
She comes back later when Michael and Willow are discussing her role in Wiley's life. Willow and Sasha both think Wiley is lucky to have the other, and also both realize they are not his mother. Willow thinks it's too painful to be around Wiley, that it might not be good for either of them. Sasha is convinced that Willow has fought so fiercely for Wiley, that Willow is loving and giving, and that she should be in Wiley's life. They are touched by each others kind words, but Willow is also afraid, and leaves in a hurry.
On March 4, Sasha meets Michael in a study at the Q mansion. He tells her he's taking a leave of absence as CEO to take care of Wiley, she approves, and they kiss.

She reminds her Maxie is on board and she's the "Nina Whisperer." Chase then comes in, and tells Sasha that Willow needs time and distance, that she's grieving her late son, but he's unintentionally hurting her. They realize that Michael and Willow are too deep, to close to the problem, and that they have to take action to help their loved ones, maybe make the decisions for them.

She is killing time and giving Michael and Diane space to discuss the custody case. Sasha cannot believe that Nelle gets away with anything, calling her an actual deranged murderer. Chase tells her that Nelle targets people, takes them in for suckers and that she actively tries to destroy the good in them. They feel she will destroy Wiley. Sasha then admits to Chase that while she will do anything Michael asks to help his case and help Wiley, she's not ready to be a mother. Sam McCall overhears her admission.
The next day, Michael tells Sasha that Diane suggested he get married to help bolster his case for custody. He has a better case, but Nelle is a master manipulator who has raised it to an art-form. Sonny shows up, and Sasha excuses herself to go make work calls. Michael tells Sasha his dad wants to solve all his problems, but Michael is convinced that his dad will not do anything to compromise Wiley. They continue discussing Diane's marriage idea. He talks about it as a business transaction. Sasha laughs at his "romanticism." They hug.
One March 12, Sasha and Willow run into Nelle at Charlie's Pub. Willow is dying for a distraction, for gossip. Sasha tells her she and Michael are thinking about marriage. They discuss the situation, and while things are going well in the romance department between Michael and Sasha, she's having trouble thinking of herself as a mom. Willow ends up throwing a drink in Nelle's face, to Sasha's delight, and admitted jealousy that she didn't get to. Willow tries to convince Sasha she should marry Michael. Sasha comes back to the mansion, and greets Michael with a kiss. They start talking themselves into getting married. They talk about their love for each other and Wiley, agree to get married, and they kiss.
They call Diane over, to tell her the news. She thinks it's a bad idea, based on Sasha's fraud in Port Charles. She claims Sasha will hurt Michael's chances to keep Wiley. Sasha realizes she can't marry Michael, and Diane agrees, saying he needs Snow White and Mary Poppins in one. Sasha tears up, disappointed. He comforts her and they kiss.
On March 17, Sasha spends some time with Wiley. She tells him he comes first, that she loves Wiley and his dad and will do anything to help them.

After Nelle leaves, Chase insists they all need to talk. Chase tells Sasha its bad. Sasha insists to Michael that he needs to get married. Willow arrives, and the quad strategize what to do about Nelle. Sasha immediately suggests that Willow marry Michael. Sasha is convinced that Willow would be perfect, having acted as his mother the entire time, taken on the world for Wiley. Chase thinks Nelle will always be there, going after any weakness. Willow and Michael go to see Wiley, and Chase angrily confronts Sasha. He thinks it's the craziest idea, but doesn't have a better one.

They toast with sparkling water to their new company. Valentin crashes the party, wanting to congratulate them on their forthcoming success. Lucy admits that Valentin is their investor. Maxie doesn't want to believe it, but her quitting Crimson to come to Deception, meant that Nina cancelled their contract, so Lucy needed to accept Valentin's offer. He assures her he's a silent partner, only interested in making money.

On September 2, Sasha meets Chase at Haven Bistro. He wants to tell Michael and Willow the truth, and she thinks he's nuts. He reasons that Nelle is gone, and even if she comes back, she kidnapped her son and attempted to kill Brook Lynn, so there is no way a judge would ever let her near Wiley again. He says it's over, Wiley is safe from Nelle for the rest of his life. Sasha asks him what he thinks will happen - he tells Willow, she says "Great news!" hands Michael his ring, kisses Wiley goodbye, and runs into his arms. Chase gets that, but he knows Willow loves him and will understand. Sasha agrees, but says Willow loves Wiley more...as her own child and he loves her as a mother. She tells him that's their doing, they can't put something in motion and think they can control the outcome. They can't ruin the happy family by showing up and saying "Whoops, just kidding!" Chase argues they are playing god, when they could have told the truth and ask them to choose. Sasha doesn't believe Willow would choose him over Wiley, especially if she learns they lied and broke her heart. He tells her that he refuses to give Willow up.
