On yesterday’s episode of General Hospital, the drama continued as several stories provided plenty of cliffhangers for the near future. Plus, once again, there were some beautiful performances from Kirsten Storms as Maxie Jones, who if she does not get a Daytime Emmy nomination for her work, it will be a crime of it’s own, and Daytime Emmy winner, Finola Hughes as Anna Devane.
In story, Anna comes to see Maxie who is still in the hospital and trying to come to terms with the fact that she has given her biological daughter to Dante(Dominic Zamprogna) and Lulu (Emme Rylan), who are now poised to leave the hospital with “their” new baby girl. During the two women scene, Anna and Maxie share their sadness, in particular when Anna discusses having to leave little Robin (Kimberly McCullough)behind, when she would have to go off around the world during spy days, and how it just broke her heart to have to keep saying goodbye. Anna was trying to help Maxie let-go of baby Falconeri, while the two discussed much they miss Robin! It was a touching scene in the more than capable hands of Storms and Hughes!
Later, Dante and Lulu still have not given a name to “their” baby, and when Anna stops by to see the new little bundle of joy, she also brings her a gift. Anna also tells the couple to name their daughter after something or someone meaningful!
Elsewhere, Sonny(Maurice Benard) is not taking his meds, losing his cool, and falling further and further into emotional trouble. After finding out about AJ (Sean Kanan), and being hounded by reporters outside his house and punching one out, he comes inside where Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) is trying her best to deal with him. Enter Dante and Lulu, who bring “their” new daughter to it’s grandfather, Sonny. And in another touching moment, as the baby sits in the arms of Sonny, Dante and Lulu reveal they have named the little girl … Connie!
So GH fans, what did you think about the choice of the name of Dante and Lulu’s baby? All for it, because you can foresee what may happen next? Or, against it? If so, what would you have named the little girl? And. what did you think about the scene between Maxie and Anna? Well-written? Hankie moment? Share your thoughts below!
