What this all boils down to is that "Dark Paradise" ended up a weak make for TV thriller because of everything in the movie is telegraphed with lots of dialogue which of course suggests trouble ahead.Jagger returned to Port Charles in 1995 when he learned his brother Stone was dying of AIDS.

He had become an FBI agent and was now a single father, fighting for custody of his son named Stone Cates, Jr., after his brother Stone.Jagger refuses and while trying to escape the hospital while avoiding arrest, he meets Karen.On the roof of the hospital, Jagger is unable to take the ladder down because he is scared of heights, and Karen finds him and convinces him to stop his escape.But is this handsome charmer all that he seems, especially when one of Tamara's friends ends up being assaulted, robbed and almost killed.There is one thing missing from that synopsis for "Dark Paradise", which is also known as "Deadly Paradise", and that is that the movie starts with a scene of a woman diving and struggling while her male companion watches, refusing to help and yes that male companion is the man we meet as Dario later on.When she went home, she found out that Jagger had been having an affair and their marriage was over. Jagger also reconnects with Scott, Sonny, and Jason.
