On yesterday’s episode, General Hospital blew the custody of baby Connie storyline wide open when the judge handed down his decision. And no one came out the victor except Spinelli, who got some vindication, in a way!
First, the judge ruled against giving custody of Baby Connie to Dante and Lulu! Can Lante’s marriage survive, after Dante admitted Lulu lied under oath during the custody hearing? And now them losing Baby Connie? Add all that to the fact at the end of the episode, in heartbreaking scenes played beautifully by Dominic Zamprogna (Danyte) and Emme Rylan (Lulu), Lulu was trying to run away with the baby until Dante stopped her in front of Tracy and Olivia?
Meanwhile back inside the courtroom, the judge reveals that he sees Maxie (Kirsten Storms) as an unfit for mother because Maxie perpetrated a fraud on Dante and Lulu and that the unknowing couple paid for all of Maxie’s medical expenses! And she kept Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) in the dark too!
So in the end, the judge awards full custody to the bio-father Damian Spinelli and gives a stern and direct order to Maxie! She is not to go anywhere near little Connie for the next six months! She has no visitation rights, either! After six months if all goes well, he will revisit the custody of the child with Spinelli and Maxie! Maxie is outraged! Spinelli is happy he will finally have a chance to raise his little girl, though the cost to those he cares about may be too great in the end! Time will tell!
