Finally, hope came when Elizabeth accidentally found the panic room. Unfortunately, Ric had been secretly giving Elizabeth birth control pills so that she wouldn't get pregnant. Elizabeth had a nearly fatal reaction to them and collapsed from an aneurysm before she could free Carly. Ric realized that he couldn't keep Carly a prisoner any longer and set her free.
Carly was not to be reunited with her family though. Lorenzo Alcazar, one of Sonny's enemies, had come to town and was intrigued with Carly. He quickly abducted her and took her to his private yacht where he initially kept her to use as a pawn against Sonny. Lorenzo's feelings for Carly grew, and she was also attracted to him.
Then came the night of Morgan's birth, when Carly ended up stranded in the new house Sonny had just surprised her with as a storm raged outside. Carly slipped and took a tumble down the stairs, which sent her into hard labor. Courtney found Carly and went for help but ended up in a car wreck.

Desperate for help, Carly checked herself into Shadybrook. Faith took advantage of Carly's weakness and had her drugged. Lorenzo visited Carly and realized that something was seriously wrong with her. He whisked her out of the sanitarium and to his cabin in the woods where he helped her recover. Sonny, who'd been stranded on an island in the middle of a hurricane, came home and found Carly at the cabin telling Lorenzo that she couldn't see him anymore.
It was a tearful parting and Sonny realized that Carly's feelings for Lorenzo were less than platonic. Sonny walked away and wound up in bed with the first woman he saw, Sam McCall, who was hurting from her break-up with Jax.
Carly, determined to make Sonny understand that she had ended things with Lorenzo once and for all, found Sonny at the hotel. She walked in on him and Sam, so she rushed back and made love with Lorenzo for the first time. Carly's erotic fantasies stopped, and she and Sonny would reconcile. There would be troubles, though. Sam McCall learned that she was pregnant with Sonny's child and had moved across the hall with Jason.
