“Alexis is pregnant you sonafabitch!” Those were the choice words uttered by Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) when he met up with Julian Jerome (William deVry) at the Metro Court Hotel bar.
Sonny cannot comprehend how Julian could let his pregnant wife stand trial for the murder of Carlos Rivera (Jeffrey Vincent Parise), when Julian was the killer! However, Julian was taken completely off guard by Sonny’s declaration and hearing that Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is pregnant. Something he did not know!
Meanwhile, Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) has rushed home (well, not exactly … she called Parker, and then hung out in the park with Aaron) to be with her mother who was out of jail on bail. When she tells Alexis she can see she is overwrought, Alexis says she’ll prove she is innocent somehow, but then adds that the whole thing is making her physically sick. Morning sickness, anyone?
And even earlier in the episode, when Sonny came to Alexis’ house and finds Julian there, and after another heated confrontation, Julian makes an exits. That is when Alexis admits she was trying to get Julian to confess. But she also admits to Sonny there is something she has to tell him, which leads us into the key scene at the end of the episode. Let’s also not forget at the beginning of the airshow, Julian considered strangling Alexis while she was taking a bath.
So, is Alexis truly pregnant? Didn’t she go through menopause in a previous storyline? Could she and Sonny have concocted this story to out manuever Julian to confess to the murder of Carlos? Could it be that Alexis is really going to have Julian’s baby, and there will soon be a tiny Julexis baby running around in nine months? Would an Alexis pregnancy be reminiscent of Reva’s on Guiding Light ? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!
