    No, first Lulu, then Sabrina (which didn't really get started), then Lulu reignited, if it ever went out. Glad Milo is getting a bigger part.... and his brother.

    DId I miss something? Yesterday AJ was having a panic attack at the hotel restaurant, and suddenly he's recovered and home, Carly apparently having escorted him?

    What the heck, one "forbidden" kiss after another in the previews!

    I'm sure Lulu will go back to Dante one day---you could see her thinking for a second there, OH, that's why I didn't pick Milo, he's sweet but he's clueless... and we need some more conflict in the Maxie's baby thing---if there's no willing mom, more reason for Maxie to keep the baby.

    I really do NOT see a good ending there if that baby survives....Ellie is going to get hurt and Spinelli wind up with someone less suited to him than she is, Maxie is going to lose a good friend, etc. Ellie is going to be punished for being an "unnatural" woman who doesn't want her own kids.

    I'd argue that maybe Ellie isn't so well-suited to Spinelli if they don't share a desire to have children.

    I agree, that's the fly in the ointment as otherwise they have been perfect for each other. Of course now Ellie is not looking so perfectly ethical, her philosophical discussion aside (aloud, with Maxie in the next room--real sensible). But then Spinellin had his own little lapse, for which she forgave him.
    Really this whole thing with Ellie not wanting kids is SO obviously a set up to push Spinelli and Maxie back together. After a year with a mental match up is Spinelli ever going to be as happy with Maxie as he used to be? It's close to saying Patrick belongs with Brit because she's carrying his kid. In the past Maxie has been nearly as nasty as Britt, although she does seem somewhat reformed now.

    Re: General Hospital

    Well, have to say, Carly and AJ are hot together, and the whole scene with Monica outside the bedroom door, and thinking it was Elizabeth and then opening the front door to Elizabeth, and then Elizabeth being on the way up---great French farce! I was laughing out loud. At least Carly has her clothes on by now... I just hope Carly is on the pill or uses an IUD, or I forsee another unplanned kid for them---because clearly NO one was taking any on the spot precautions! AJ sure is a slow learner.

    I assume Ellie is going to be persuaded to lie to Spinelli for a while....which will then give him a reason to break up with her other than the baby....
    Or Maxie and Ellie will have a fight over the phone and Maxie will miscarry (if she could miscarry early on from a simple trip, why not, not like we are being realistic with this pregnancy anyway, given how it started!).

    Poor Nicholas...he's got to get Lucky's blessing before he can get anywhere with Elizabeth. And starting a relationship with AJ when she has such strong feelings for Nicholas...real smart.

    At least new Lulu has old Lulu's "spunk", even if not her taste in men.

    Re: General Hospital

    I hate to admit it since Carly is one of my faves but you are spot on about the sizzling chemistry between her and AJ. Unfortunately or fortunately depending on how you look at it (glad to have a job), my job required my undivided attention right after the initial scene and I missed most of the rest of the show.

    I always liked Carly with Sonny. Especially now since Sonny isn't really seeing anyone.

    Re: General Hospital

    Basically the actress who plays Carly seems to have great chemistry with everyone.

    Somehow I do NOT think this is the last we wlll see of this incident, everyone is in too much of a hurry to cover it up. Either she will get pregnant (again! and not even drunk this time!) or they will wind up in the sack again.

    Poor Ellie... what a mess...

    I'm thinking pregnant.

    Ellie is starting to lose me though it may be more the writers who are putting things in her mouth that are turning me off.

    As soon as the previews showed they were going to have sex, I immediately though "pregnant!".
    I like AJ & Elizabeth together. I wasn't watching back when they were both trouble, although I read some GH history when I came back to watching, to get up to speed.
    All I know is I like them both now, & like them together. Nikolas, on the other hand, just rubs me the wrong way. Maybe it's the Cassadine name, but I just don't like him. I did like the mother/son scenes yesterday with Laura. I softened to him just a little.

    Anyhow, as if this show doesn't have enough relationship-complicated-by-unwanted-pregnancy storylines now, it seems to be a soap standard.
    If someone wants a baby (Dante/Lulu) they can't have one for nothing. But have sex 1 time, on the same day you miscarry, & bingo!, pregnant. And jumping on a trampoline, falling down a flight of 100 steps, getting a gut punch in a street fight, and no way will the woman lose that baby.

    Next pregnancy storyline: I predict Lulu will be pregnant from Stavros. Mark my words!

    That would make the baby Nikolas' (half) sibling AND his niece/nephew. Ick.
