It was another gloriously high-def week in Port Charles, as Carly's high-risk pregnancy became a talking point for ... let's call it "spirited" discussion around P.C. learned councils of informed citizenry (meaning: Jax and Sonny, who debated with their fists). We also saw a love quadrangle erupt into unexpected passion for Nikolas/Liz and Lucky/Rebecca. And the first week in business for McCall and Jackal saw Maxie Jones sign up as the first client ... even if the lion's share of her case is turning out to be a hoax. What else happened on "GH" this week? Read on for our highlight reel.
Funniest Moment: It was all part of a larger scenario that we'll get to in a bit, but in the midst of Sonny's week-long tirade against Jax -- which, if we could digress for a moment, really makes us appreciate how in the world of daytime dramas, some things never change. Much as it may sometimes make us annoyed at one or both of them, Sonny and Jax's continued animosity towards each other is a "GH" constant that is refreshing in these turbulent times. Anyway, so Sonny is venting about Jax to Jason and then utters the phrase so excellent, we had to rewind it back at least thrice: He called Jax a "big dingo." Because he's Australian! And their babies get eaten by dingoes! Up high, Corinthos!
WTH? Moment: We hate to keep bringing this to a Maxie place, but at the moment, she kind of deserved to be taking up permanent residence in our WTH hall of fame. We're down with her trying to reconcile with Spinelli -- and she got off to a good start by approaching Jason; weirdly, she's like the one person who can get him to do stuff he doesn't want to do. But then it all went downhill after Ms. Jones came up with her brilliant plan to stage a mugging in order to trigger Spinelli's feelings for her. For one thing, OBVIOUSLY the whole plan was destined to go pear-shaped because hello, you're on a TV show! But also, and not to get too logical here, Spinelli is getting better and better at seeing through Maxie's manipulations. We're guessing an ounce of vulnerability, remorse, and an honest airing of her feelings would have done Maxie far better than yet another insane scheme. Of course, if Maxie were the least bit comfortable with recognizing her own vulnerability, she wouldn't be the character we love and are driven crazy by.
