On July 5, Carly Corinthos and Jason Morgan visit Stuart’s house in Bailey’s Beach.

He tells them how Sam, as Sandra McIntire, killed his wife Evelyn Bass in a fire and he has been looking for Sam for 10 years.

On July 6, Stuart explains how Sam showed up one night looking for her mother Evelyn. Stuart said that Evelyn gave birth to Sam long before they met and she considered Sam a mistake. Sam threw Evelyn’s past in her face and got into arguments with her until one night, Evelyn threw Sam out of her house and said she would have Sam arrested for harassment if she came back. Stuart was out and when he came back, the house had burned to the ground with Evelyn inside. Sam was arrested that night and was let out on bail. She ran and was convicted in absentia.
