  1. I would like to see Morgan show up as a new mob boss and confront Sonny. Of course Sonny and Carly will be so excited that he made it through the explosion, until he can’t remember who they are , only that Sonny has a territory that he wants to control. He could come back as the secret man who is controlling Ava and Austin. My favorite show I have watched all my life. For 60 years. Happy Birthday GH
