Though he got confirmation that Michael and Kiki weren’t related, Morgan hides the secret and even marries Kiki while not telling them the truth.
When the truth comes out, Morgan and Kiki split as expect and Morgan begins sleeping with her Ava. A shift happens with Morgan and he turns against Sonny and works with Ava and her brother, Julian Jerome. At one point, Ava ends up getting pregnant and doesn’t know if the child is Sonny’s or Morgan’s. it turns out to be Sonny’s.
After this, Morgan is diagnosed with bipolar disorder soon after he holds Julian and Alexis Davis at gunpoint, believing that Julian had Sonny shot. However, this was all a scheme of Ava’s, as she switched Morgan’s medicine in order to keep him away from Kiki.

The bomb was planed in the car by Olivia Jerome, Julian and Ava’s brother, as she was trying to kill Julian.
