She finds out Spinelli is investigating Heather after she stole Olivia Falconeri's car the night of the storm.

Todd then fires Sam and reveals he knew Jason was standing watch while she tried to break into his safe. When he asks why, Sam asks why he seems so concerned about her baby. Todd doesn't give her an answer, and she leaves. Though she and Jason started being friendly again, in August 2012, they decide to get a divorce. They share one last kiss, and separate.
Sam gets distracted from the divorce proceedings when Alexis is admitted to the hospital with a mystery illness. Sam thinks she got something at Wyndemere, where she last was, until Josslyn is brought to the hospital, as well, with the same illness after going missing for a short time. Sam is worried about her mother, and talks to John about what happened to her. Meanwhile, Jason also starts to investigate and works with John to bring down the culprit. They find out the perpetrator is Jerry Jacks, who tells Port Charles he has poisoned the water supply and will only hand over the antidote in exchange for a large sum of money. He also reveals that he gave Alexis and Josslyn the counteragent to prevent them from being infected.
Sam finds out that Todd has an unknown association with Johnny Zacchara, and believes whatever Todd is hiding, Johnny knows about, as well. She and John break into Johnny's office to see if there are any clues there. However, Sam becomes lightheaded and passes out, and John is worried she has been infected, and brings her to the hospital. At the same time, Jason is brought in by Elizabeth after being shot in the leg.
Thinking they're spending the last few hours of their life in the hospital, Sam shares with Jason the fantasy she had about how things would have turned out differently. In her dream, she decided that what Heather had to say wasn't important and walked out of Ferncliff. Sam went into labor during her baby shower, and gave birth to her son at the hospital. Afterwards, she and Jason decide to name the baby Daniel Edward, after her brother and Jason's grandfather. In her dream, they also had a daughter named Emily.
When Jason hears this story, he feels like Sam deserves some answers. So, Jason asks Patrick to take a look at the autopsy report, and clarify what happened. Patrick tells Sam and Jason that the baby died of respiratory failure, and had a serious blood condition called hemophilia. When Jason asks if he died because he didn't make it to the hospital, Patrick isn't sure they would have been able to help him. When Sam asks if her son would be alive if he had been placed on a ventilator, Patrick tells both of them he believes that even if the baby had made it to the hospital, he doubts the baby would have been saved because his lungs weren't developed properly. Sam and Jason realize it's not either of their faults that "her son" died.
The antidote is located, the water supply of Port Charles is saved, and Sam and Jason survive. Sam returns home, and finds out Kristina married Trey Mitchell, the former producer of Kristina's reality show. Sam warns Kristina that Sonny & Alexis will not be happy, and advises her to be careful. Meanwhile, Kristina asks Sam if there is any chance she & Jason will fix their marriage. Though Sam hopes they can, when she goes over to Jason's house, she sees him kissing Elizabeth again.
Sam goes to the Chinese restaurant where she and Jason got married on their one-year anniversary. Jason shows up soon after. Sam tells Jason she came there, hoping that things would get better somehow if she returned there. When the owner comes by, neither of them have the heart to say that they're getting a divorce. Eventually, they have lunch together, and Jason ends up kissing Sam afterwards.
Sam attends the bachelorette party of Kate Howard, Sonny's fiancée, with Kristina. There, she overhears Elizabeth telling Lulu that Jason and Sam's marriage is over, and he wants to move on with Elizabeth. Sam is heartbroken when she hears this, and delivers the divorce papers to Jason. When she comes over, though, Spinelli is there and tries to encourages Sam not to give up because there might be hope.
On the night of Sonny and Kate's wedding, Sam decides to stay home. John shows up later, and the two of them kiss. Though they almost go further, the two of them stop and admit neither of them are ready for the next step. John leaves, and Elizabeth shows up soon after. She tells Sam that she & Jason are not together, and she was manipulating both of them to get a divorce so she could be with Jason. She also reveals that the day Sam came over and saw Jason and Elizabeth kissing at his house, Jason pulled away and told Elizabeth they don't have a future together. Elizabeth apologizes to Sam, and leaves.
Reunion with son and Jason's death
After Elizabeth leaves, Jason comes to Sam's house, and she lets him know Elizabeth confessed the truth to her. When he asks what truth, Sam tells him that she admitted to manipulating both of them into getting a divorce. Sam realizes there's more to the story, and asks Jason. Jason begins to say he has something to tell her, but they are interrupted when Kristina comes home with Trey, and tells Jason and Sam that Trey's father, Joe Scully Jr., also Sonny's longtime enemy, tried to kill Kristina. When Dante comes over to get their statements, Sam is worried Jason will take care of Joe himself. She asks him not to, and call John instead, but Jason tells Sam that he's "busy." He gets a phone call, though, and leaves immediately.
Sam later tells Spinelli to come over, and asks Spinelli what Jason is keeping from her, even going so far as to physically threaten him. He does admit he and Jason were tracking something, but it turned out to be a false lead. Sam calls Jason, and says they should talk about what he was trying to tell her. She goes to answer the door, and Jason reveals he already knows they need to talk, because he's the one standing at her doorstep. He comes inside, and tells Sam that her son is alive.
When Sam asks how, Jason tells her everything. The day they found out why Sam's baby died, he took a second look at the autopsy report, and saw that the baby's blood type didn't match either of theirs, which made him realize the baby Sam buried wasn't hers. He realized Heather switched Sam's baby with the stillborn son of Téa Delgado and he & Sam suspect Todd was involved in the switch, as well. Sam is overjoyed to know her baby is alive, and leaves to go get her son from Llanview. Jason stops her and tells her the baby isn't in Llanview because he's been kidnapped by Heather, who was hired as a nanny by Téa for "her son." Sam is shocked, but Jason promises they're going to find Heather and get her son back.
Sam and Jason go to the hospital after Heather makes contact with her son, Steve, ends up attacking him, and Steve comes to the hospital to treat his injury. He tells Sam and Jason that Heather wants to raise the baby as her own and thinks a second chance at motherhood will fix her again. He also tells them that the baby is on medication for beta thalassemia, the blood condition Sam has. Sam is worried her son could become sick, but Jason tries to assure her, telling her they'll get her son back. To help her calm down, Jason gets the photos the PCPD has of the baby from Dante and shows them to Sam. Sam gets to see her son for the first time, and is happy that he's strong and healthy, and again tells Jason how her son looks just like him. She worries about Téa, who has taken care of her baby for months, and is about to find out that her child is gone.
Sam and Jason hear a noise in the hospital stairwell. They find Olivia on the floor, injured. She tells them Heather is in the hospital with the baby. Sam runs to find her son, and Olivia points her to the roof. Jason goes with Sam, and they corner Heather on the roof, begging her to give them back their son.
Heather taunts them for not loving the baby because he's Franco's child, but Jason holds his ground, saying that he wants to be the child's father and raise him as his own son. Sam listens to Jason's heartfelt plea, and begs Heather to give her son back, even bargaining to repair Heather's relationship with Steve in exchange for her son. When Heather, however, hears the police say they've surrounded the building, she becomes mentally unhinged and gets onto the ledge of the roof. She says if she can't have the baby, no one can, and topples off the ledge. Jason runs forward, though, and grabs the baby out of Heather's arms before she falls off the roof, saving Sam's son.
Jason pulls the baby to safety, and Sam is able to hold her son for the first time since he was born when Jason gives him to her. Sam is overjoyed to have her son back, and thanks Jason for saving him. They share a family reunion before John arrives. He brings them downstairs to get the baby checked out. Before they can, however, Téa intercepts them with Todd, and tries to take her son back. Sam stops her, and John handles the situation by having Dr. Britt Westbourne take Sam, Jason, and the baby to an exam room while he explains the situation to Téa. Dr. Westbourne determines Sam's son is in perfect condition, but will keep him overnight as a precaution.
After Dr. Westbourne leaves, Sam and Jason spend time with the baby. There, Sam tells Jason how she's happy and guilty, as well, because Téa now is finding out that her child is dead. Jason tells her to focus on the positive - her son is back with her and healthy. Téa later comes by and tells Sam she knows that the baby isn't hers, and asks to say goodbye to "Victor," the name she called him by. When she gives him back to Sam, she thanks Téa for taking care of him before Téa leaves. Sam then decides to call her son the name she gave him in her fantasy: Daniel Edward.
The next day, Jason brings Monica over to introduce her to Daniel. When Monica asks if the baby's last name will be McCall or Morgan, Jason and Sam are flustered, as they tell her they haven't decided yet. They are interrupted, though, when Alexis, Kristina, and Molly arrive and become enthralled by Danny. When Alexis asks when Sam and Danny are coming home, Sam admits she doesn't know because she doesn't have the right equipment to take Danny anywhere. Alexis then states that everything she needs has been ordered and will be waiting at her house when Sam and Danny come home, which Jason overhears. After they leave, he tells Sam that he was hoping she and Danny would come home with him. He promises to love her and Danny forever, and he really is ready to be a father to Danny. He apologizes for everything he's done, and Sam forgives him, and decides to take Danny home with Jason, as they officially reunite.
Jason and Sam come home to his penthouse and put Danny down for the night. When he wakes up a little later, Sam decides to take a family picture of the three of them. Sam later notices a message on Jason's machine, which she plays. It's from Bernie Abrahms, who tells Jason frantically he has some important information to give him, and it's a matter of life and death. Though Jason wants his lawyer to handle it, Sam convinces him to go himself. Later on, while she's waiting for him, John shows up and the two of them talk about their relationship. Sam admits there is something, but she belongs with Jason and has decided to stay married to him. John understands, and leaves.
Sonny comes by and tells Sam that something happened at the docks. Bernie has been shot and killed, and Jason was also shot and fell into the water. He tells Sam that divers are looking for him, and he tried to, as well, but it's not looking good. Sam decides to go and look herself to find and bring Jason back. She convinces the coast guard to let her put on a suit and go into the water. She doesn't find Jason, but she does find the phoenix figurine, which she gave to Jason right before he left the house.
Moving on (2012-2013)
Sam, afterwards, refuses to believe that Jason is dead, and thinks he's alive, and he'll come back to her and Danny. When her mother and sisters come by to express their condolences, Sam tells them she knows Jason is alive and will come back to her. When she goes to place Danny to bed upstairs, Alexis, Kristina, and Molly realize she's in denial. She overhears this and tells them to get out. Spinelli later comes by, and Sam asks for his help to find Jason, because she thinks he's alive. Spinelli decides to help her, even though he thinks the chances of finding Jason alive are slim.
After hearing about Jason, Todd felt that Sam deserved to know the truth and "helped" Steve and Olivia find the paternity test. Steve later brings it to Sam, and tells her Jason is Danny's biological father. Sam is ecstatic, and hopes she'll get to tell Jason. Jason comes by after Steve leaves, and she shows him the paternity results. However, he disappears afterwards, and Sam realizes that he was never there. As she cries with Danny in her arms, she wonders where Jason is.
John comes back, and tells Sam that Jerry Jacks was the one who bailed Joe Scully Jr. out of prison. Sam believes that Jerry was the one who shot Jason and has kidnapped him, but John tells her that he thinks it's someone else who has a plan more elaborate than just Sonny's empire. He also tells Sam that the police are no longer looking for Jason, and to take care, because she could put herself and Danny in danger trying to find Jason. Sam still refuses to give up searching for Jason.
Sam finds out that A.J. Quartermaine, Jason's brother long presumed dead, is actually alive and in Port Charles. Michael comes over and tells Sam how he doesn't want A.J. to go to prison. Sam, though, says A.J. is dangerous, and deserves to go to prison. Later, A.J. shows up at the penthouse, having violated bail. Michael realizes A.J.'s aunt, Tracy Quartermaine, set him up and tries to go stop her. Sam, however, refuses to let A.J. stay there as a fugitive, saying he is not welcome in her house. Michael, though, convinces her to let him stay while he goes and tries to smooth things over with Tracy.
When Michael leaves, Sam lets A.J. know he hopes Tracy's plan works and he goes back to jail. A.J. tells Sam he's changed, and he really wishes he could have come back and made things right with Jason. He's surprised when Sam reveals that she and Jason have a son, and asks to see Danny. Sam agrees, and introduces Danny to A.J. Dante later comes by and arrests A.J. Before he leaves, though, he lets Sam know that he wants to help her and Danny in any way possible, and he hopes Jason is alive so he can make amends.
On November 20, Sam gets a call from A.J. that Edward is bed-ridden and may not last much longer. She comes over with Danny and Michael. At Edward's bedside, she introduces Danny to him, telling him Danny was named after him. She also reveals that Jason is Danny's biological father, and promises Edward she'll raise the family to make him proud. Edward then extends his hand to Danny, who grabs his finger, to Sam, Michael, and Monica's delight. Soon after, Edward passes away.
Sam attends Edward's funeral with Danny, and later tells Spinelli she's not ready to say goodbye to Jason. Spinelli tells her he can't hold onto hope, like Sam has. Afterwards, Sam tells Danny that she's not going to give up just yet. Sam becomes the controller of 18% of ELQ Enterprises stock, after Jason inherits 12% and Danny inherits 6%. Tracy invites her over one day, and when she and A.J. start to get into an argument over ELQ, Sam realizes she has the power to decide whether A.J. or Tracy will become the CEO.
Alexis and Kristina come over during Christmas, and decorate Sam's house. Sam's not in the mood to celebrate, but Alexis tells her they're doing it for Danny. When Sam says she's busy with a case, Alexis realizes she's still searching for Jason, and tells her to not ruin Danny's first Christmas looking for Jason. Tracy comes by later, showering Sam and Danny with gifts in order to gain the 18% of ELQ stock. A.J. comes by with Michael, trying to do the same. Sam, fed up, makes a decision, and gives 9% to both Tracy and A.J.
After New Years', Sam finds out Todd was arrested for his part in the baby switch from Carly. John comes and reveals that he just arrested Cesar Faison. He tells Sam that Faison was disguised as Duke Lavery, and was trying to win the affection of Anna Devane, Duke's wife. John reveals that Faison was the one behind Kristina's attempted murder, trying to gain access to Sonny's funds through Kristina. He then tells Sam that Faison was the one who shot Bernie and Jason, and then kicked his body into the harbor, and watched Jason sink. He makes Sam realize Jason is gone, and not coming back. Sam cries in John's arms over her loss. Sam later meets up with John at Kelly's with Danny, meeting Monica to prepare a memorial for Jason. Monica hears from John about what Faison did, and agrees to help Sam plan a memorial.
"Vampires" in Port Charles
After Monica leaves, Lucy Coe shows up, and calls John "Caleb Morley," king of vampires. She tries to threaten him to stay away from Danny. Lucy sees Sam and calls her "Livvie." Sam and John realize she's crazy, and leave with Danny. Lucy corners John, though, and stabs him. Alexis and Shawn Butler show up, and stop Lucy & call an ambulance for John.
Sam goes with John to the hospital, where she stops Todd from escaping after getting beaten up in holding and brought to the hospital. Afterwards, she stays with John when he wakes up. She goes to check on Todd, and hears Diane reveal that Todd knew about Danny's paternity, and kept quiet about it. She tells Todd she hopes he gets what he deserves, and gets sent to prison. Later, she finds out Todd pleaded insanity and is being sent to Ferncliff.
Sam is there when Kristina is arrested for attempted murder of Kate, now going by Connie. While there, she comes across Alison Barrington, who calls John and Sam "Caleb" and "Livvie" again. She tries to get Sam to leave with her, saying her son is in danger, but Sam refuses, and Alison leaves. John looks Alison up, and finds there's no record of her having a son. Sam suspects Lucy sent her to back up her story, and goes to Ferncliff to find out.
Sam confronts Lucy about Alison, but Lucy says she hasn't heard from Alison in years. She tells Sam that Alison was married to Rafe Kovich, and gave birth to a son named Rafe Jr. However, when Rafe was born, they realized that Caleb was actually the father of Rafe, and Lucy claims that is Alison in danger. Sam goes back to the station, and tells John what Lucy said, and is shocked when she finds out Alison is dead. John found Rafe standing over her body, and has arrested him. However, Rafe claims that John killed his mother.
Molly comes to the station, and tells Sam and John that she met Rafe, and doesn't believe he's guilty. Sam, meanwhile, tries to help John find out what happened. Meanwhile, Todd, Heather, and Lucy break out of Ferncliff, and Sam takes steps to make sure Danny is safe from Heather. Meanwhile, Rafe escapes from police custody, and John is implicated in the crime with damaging evidence. He's arrested, but Sam isn't convinced. She asks Alexis to represent John, and finds out John believes Lucy is right, and there's someone out there named Caleb, who looks just like him, and is committing these crimes.
John says he was with Professor Jay Mosser of Port Charles University when Rafe was released. Sam goes to PCU to get John's alibi, but she finds Professor Mosser dead. She calls Anna, who realizes John couldn't have committed the murder because he was at the police station when Mosser died. Meanwhile, Sam gets a call from Alexis that Danny was kidnapped by Heather, and Anna is informed from the station. Sam is upset, but Anna gets a tip that Heather is at the pier, and Sam heads there with her. There, they find Todd with Danny.
Todd is arrested by Anna, but insists he was trying to give Danny back to Sam, not kidnap him. He also claims that John was there, and that he choked Heather and threw her into the harbor, then tried to take off with the baby, but Todd stopped him. Anna and Sam know his story doesn't add up. Sam begins to believe that Caleb does exist. When she tries to leave, she finds "John" standing at the pier, claiming he'd been released. Sam is scared and tries to leave, but when "John" blocks her way, Sam tells him she knows he's actually Caleb. Caleb claims to have known her for centuries, but Sam says she doesn't know him at all. She watches as Caleb backs her into a corner with Danny in her arms.
Caleb kidnaps Danny and Sam and brings them to Wyndemere. He bites Sam because he is convinced that after 3 bites she will remember that she is really Livvie. John, Lucy and Rafe arrive at Wyndemere and find Danny alone. Caleb brings Sam into the tunnels to avoid being found. While Rafe waits with Danny, Lucy and John search the tunnels for Sam. John finds Sam first but Caleb overpowers him and plans to kill him. Lucy comes in and the three eventually kill Caleb and escape. Later at the police station Sam tells the press that John, Lucy and Rafe saved her and Danny's lives. The three are released, as a result.
Rafe is placed into a group home, as a result of not having any family, and Molly is worried about him. Sam helps her out by calling the group home to check on Rafe. She finds out that he got into a fight, and left the home. She calls John asking for help, and finds out Rafe came to his motel room, not wanting to go back. Molly and Sam head over there, where John decides to take legal custody of Rafe. However, Alexis arrives and says Social Services won't allow it because John doesn't meet the legal requirements. Rafe leaves with Molly & Alexis, while Sam stays behind and consoles John over not being able to help Rafe. The two kiss again, but Sam once again stops it, and tells John she's reminded that when they first kissed, neither of them were free, and they'll never get past that. John agrees with her decision, and they say goodbye to each other.
Sam ends up helping in the Nurses' Ball being hosted and run by Lucy. While volunteering, she meets Anton Ivanov, the handsome dancer who is choreographing the opening number for the Nurses' Ball. Anton tries to encourage her to dance with him, but Sam won't give in. She ends up attending the Ball with Alexis, Molly, Shawn, and TJ Ashford. There, though, Anton tells her that his partner for his dance performance was injured, and asks Sam to step in. Sam agrees, and the two perform a dance number onstage, which the crowd thoroughly enjoys.
After the Nurses' Ball, Sam helps Lucy try to gain guardianship over Rafe by providing testimony at the hearing for Lucy's petition for custody. However, the judge denies Lucy's petition because of her recent issues with the law. Afterwards, Lucy, Alexis, & Sam are conferring about Rafe's situation when Lucy comes up with the idea of Sam becoming Rafe's legal guardian. Initially, Sam is reluctant to accept this, but Lucy later convinces her, and Sam comes to realize she can help Rafe. Sam & Alexis talk to the judge, who agrees to let Sam have temporary custody for 90 days, and Sam brings Rafe home with her.
Sam gets some investigation work from her late husband's best friend Carly Corinthos-Jacks regarding the disappearance and gambling ring scheme of Carly's son Morgan Corinthos. Sam goes to a hospital where Morgan was taken and sees a doctor who looks very similar to Stephen Clay. The doctor turns out to be Dr. Silas Clay, the older brother of Stephen. Silas is seemingly emotionless when Sam informs him about Stephen's death and Silas having a nephew. Sam talks to Spinelli about Spinelli's investigation concerning Lauren Frank and her encounter with Silas. Spinelli leaves and Sam receives a knock on the door. It's Silas, who has come to meet Rafe but she tells him its not a good idea, at that very moment Rafe walks and wants nothing to with him. At Kelly's, Silas gives Sam his petition for guardianship of Rafe. Sam is surprised and believes that he has an agenda. When Rafe finds out he lets Silas know he doesn't want to stay with him. Sam promises Rafe that she is going fight for him.
Meanwhile Franco reveals himself to be alive during a party he hosts at the Haunted Star. He uses Jason to lure Sam, Carly, Spinelli, Maxie, Sonny, Michael, AJ and Liz to the party. After revealing himself, he teases the party-goers with the idea of Jason being alive to keep Sonny from killing him. Then he announced the true intention of the party - he wanted to make amends. He revealed that he never raped Sam during Sam and Jason's honeymoon by showing them video footage of what really happened that night. He also showed another video showing that Michael's attack in prison was never his intention and went beyond what he wanted to happen. Nevertheless no one's attitude toward Franco thawed, because he had still caused lots of terror and pain, so Sonny and Carly begin planning a hit on his life.
In court, Silas trashes Sam and her late husband Jason, in order to make her look like an unfit mother, which infuriates her. While she is trying to ream out Silas, he examines Danny, despite Sam's objection and says he's sick. He tells her that she needs to take Danny to the hospital but she refuses and leaves. Later on, she decides to him in and gets his blood drawn. Patrick informs Sam and Alexis that Danny might have leukemia and on June 13, it is confirmed that Danny does have leukemia.
