Monica may never forget the role Carly played in A.J.’s demise, but over the years she has come to recognize that A.J. was no saint. In fact, he was an alcoholic. He also wrecked Jason’s life, the way Monica sees it. Jason was preparing to become a doctor when A.J. crashed the car they were traveling in, which caused Jason to lose his memory and enter into Sonny Corinthos’ (Maurice Benard) world forevermore. Still, in Monica’s defense, Carly and Sonny both coerced A.J. into signing away his rights to Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell), and Carly went out of her way to manipulate A.J. into thinking he was drinking and blacking out again when he wasn’t. So, in many ways, Monica is justified. Still, times change and people do grow.
