GENERAL HOSPITAL: Britt's Birthing Showdown with Sabrina! Sonny Saved By His Sons! Maxie & Lulu Make Amends?

Monday’s episode of General Hospital featured a great script with snappy dialog, plenty of drama and antagonism and sarcasm, and left us with some big “Oh-Oh!” moments that will be the impetus for a big fallout story to come!

First and foremost, the unforgettable birth of Britt’s son as he entered in the world! And what was the set-up?  Sabrina (Teresa Castillo) actually having to help her nemesis deliver the baby when Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) goes into labor during an argument with none other than Patrick’s (Jason Thompson) girlfriend.

Meanwhile, Nikolas  (Tyler Christopher) happens upon the scene and lends his support, since they can’t get a boat quick enough to take Britt to a hospital and out of the Compound de Cassadine!! But what followed was a hilarious turn where Britt hurled insults at Sabrina as the the OB/GYN turned out to be one horrific mother in labor!  Even Sabrina, got in few jabs at the Britch!  After the baby was born, wouldn’t you know?  Britt realizes something is wrong with the baby!  Just as Britt seemed like she was actually bonding with the bundle of joy! Any guesses, what could be wrong? We think we might know!

Elsewhere, Sonny (Maurice Benard) is on a downward spiral and wants to commit suicide as his depression sets in further and further over the loss of Connie !  When Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) arrives on the scene, Sonny admits his failure to protect those he loves, when he utters, “The truth is, I don’t protect spit!”  As Sonny’s desire to end his life escalates, Olivia tells him that she is not going to make this easy for him, and he is going to have to shoot himself in front of her.  Next, Sonny’s band of sons arrive! Michael (Chad Duell), Dante  (Dominic Zamprogna), and Morgan (Bryan Craig) actually talk some sense into their father.  Eventually, Sonny puts down the gun in some very intense moments.

Maxie (Kirsten Storms) tries her best to make Lulu realize she is going to get professional help to deal with her “unhealthy” attachment to Dante and Lulu’s  (Emme Rylan) “baby”.   Maxie even has a heartfelt emotional wallop moment when she reveals to Lulu with double meaning, ” I would give anything.  Give up anything for you.”   Later, of all people, Brad (Parry Shen) overhears Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) and Maxie’s conversation where the duo literally say and spell out that no one can ever know that they are the true biological parents of Lulu and Dante’s “baby”.  Of note:  Earlier in the episode, Brad was trying to tell something to Dante about Britt’s baby.  Was he about to tell Dante that he is actually the biological father, since Brad does not want the responsibility of Britt’s baby, and charade now that Nikolas told him to man-up and take care of Britt and his “son”?  Oh, the tangled web we weave.

This was a entertaining episode of General Hospital that was jam-packed with story, that makes you want to tune-in tomorrow, and that is what soap opera should be about …. shouldn’t they?

What was your favorite moment from yesterday’s episode of GH?  Let us know in the comment section! And if you have not seen the episode, you can check out below!

Call me a traitor…but Britt has totally grown on me and I am LOVING the prospect of Brit and Nik!!! She’s still a Britch, but in a good way!

Phil

I like Brit too! I am liking her with Nik! The Dante/Lulu/Maxie part of the show is my favorite part of the show. It’s Kirsten Storms at her finest! I was a fan of Jen Lilley in the role, but then I didn’t watch before Jen took over. Storms however, has proven to me why GH took Storms back. Sure she was under contract, but Storms has been the top player on the show these days!

I agree about storm she really is a fine young actress and she s got me rooting for Maxie in this storyline.

It was so heart wrenching– those scenes with Lulu and Maxie—-and Brad wanting to talk to Dante seems to suggest what many have said the Britt used Dante’s sperm and/or Lulu/Dante fertilized egg. I know Sonny is bipolar, but just didn’t buy a man like him would be that grieved over Connie that he would want to end it all. But loved the scenes, well acted– a tad melodramatic, but effective. And like others here, the Britch is growing on me. She is like the Grinch, she may be a mean one, but inside there is a tiny heart just waiting to experience real love– and Prince Nik is just the one to it.

Rosalynn
Rosalynn

Could be part of the reason the Britch is having trouble bonding with her baby, I mean it happens sometimes.

madina

yeah i mean that could be a reason but there is also post postpartum depression that can do that too

Edward

Hate to break it to you all but Britt’s Baby will be Lulu’s and Stavros’s….This will give the dante and lulu thing an out… and roll the entire cassadine and spencer deal again….. watch for the Legion of Doom to all be alive and well…. and Faison is not in no prison either…..

Jamie

LOL….is this a joke?

Edward Connolly

Mark my words.. you will ser Stavros again .. he said he would come back…. These characters and many more have been held in Switzerland Clinic…… Just wait

Patrick

LOL.

if this gets us more Stavros?

Robert Kelker-Keller?

Yum! hey… going with the herd… cows moo…

C’mon Stavros… show us MORE.

Hope you are right, Edward…your scenario sounds infinitely more interesting than the one we have been expecting now for months…..

Naw, I don’t think so. At least I HOPE not.

I’m a little behind, on last Thursday’s episode. The reason being, I just can’t watch Kristen Alderson anymore and I hate having to fast forward through an episode. I think this whole storyline between Michael, Lauren/Kiki, and nu-Morgan is beyond awful. No chemistry, whatsoever. Anyhoo, I always love Maurice Benard and Laura Wright, anytime they are on my screen. I like Britt. Love Nikolas. Think that Monica should “RAID” the Quartermaine mansion and get rid of the pesky non-Quartermaine’s that have inhabited the place!

Rosalynn
Rosalynn

Yeah, but I’m sooooooo tired of Laura Wright’s never ending screaming and yelling. She is intense in every single scene. She needs to simmer down.

Shay
Shay

Right on, Rosalynn!!! LW’s “Amazon with Attitude” Act is really wearing thin. It’s always the same thing with her….coming on like gangbusters!!!! Also, I’m really not looking forward to her forthcoming “frolic with Franco!” They just seem an odd pairing….I know the two actors sooo want to work together, but it simply doesn’t appeal to me. I’d rather see her with Derek: Given his thirst for vengeance against Carly’s ex, they could make a very explosive couple, and I am really not feeling the foreshadowed Alexis/Julian reunion….seeing NLG reduced to a giggling schoolgirl over this guy is moronic, and I truly do not see a mutual attraction between them…it’s all one-sided on her part. Honestly, he seems far more thrilled whenever he gets to hug his girl, “Sam,” although dare I say his reaction appears to be less than “paternal?” (Hey, all the guys on GH love to clinch KM….ever notice???? She has the ability to create a believable chemistry with whomever she is playing off at any given time….)

Shay
Shay

Yay! Monica bit the bullet and cleaned house…now all that remains is relocating the new Mr. and Mrs. Corinthos…and that is definitely coming!!! Really enjoyed LC’s scenes with Franco yesterday….RoHo is so droll and disrespectful in the most charming and hilarious way, like he still cannot help himself, even sans the brain tumor. (Loved his comments about “Alice,” toooo funny!) That being said, did anyone else think that Monica looked a bit worse for wear? Not being rude, but she seemed rather frail and her voice lacked its usual vigor, I truly hope the actress is not ill. Lastly, does anyone else think the mystery “lurker” is Heather???? They are setting it up to appear to be “Jason,” but it’s just a red herring…all the “subjects” being watched are those with whom the “BLT Queen” has a most unhealthy obsession…..

jimh(leave to beaver)
jimh(leave to beaver)

Britt and Nik…gh soontobe no.1 supercouple…Spin and Maxi…emmy winners next year…i tried to like Olivia but i wished Sonny shot her when he had the chance…Todd…oops, i mean Franco is improving…his hair looks better now it no longer looks clowinish…now we need Epiphany back at the hospital, Dr.O hiding out in secret room at Niks place, Monica involved in AJs storyline, Heather revealed as Connies killer(she managed to sneak out of mental hospital and return) and a good storyline for Mac, Felicia, Laura, Scotty, Lucy…and whoever i forgotten!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I also wanted Britts baby to really be Patricks…and Robins!!! Dr.O couldve pulled it off but what, knowing its a soap and crazy things can happen…Maxi really carried Dantes and Lulus child and Britt carried Spins and Maxies son? Or it really is Britts son and Dantes baby? So many exciting twist and turns here…love it!!!

Shay
Shay

One thing I definitely would have changed about the Britt “birthing scene” would have been to have Patrick deliver the child!!!! It would have been much more dramatic to have a devastated and disgusted Dr. Drake being forced to assist with the child’s dangerous entrance into the world,all the while knowing it was not his!!! Such a moment to behold, and it would have spared us the hokey heroics of “Sappy” as the one to “save the day” for “Baby Westbourne” only seconds after she upset the mother-to-be with her nasty histrionics. Still really wondering about the baby’s mysterious paternity, although it appears to be courtesy of Dante????

su0000
su0000

Who??
Which one will tell who Britts baby is?
Who will tell D&L that they are not the seeds of Maxie’s baby?

I think; Lulu and Dante will find out Brit gave birth to their baby and then after find out that Spin and Maxie are the parents of the baby they think is theirs …

love ALL the GH stories!!! ((wonder who))

Patrick
Patrick

thus far…

I really do… think…. that Maxie’ baby… does look like her. just like Spinelli intimated…

and.. Britts… looks like Lulu.

However… that being said… all for not?

I couldn’t believe.. that Spinelli and Maxie… “both” decided.. that it was best not to say anything…. ???? !!!!!

Maxie… as a new mother… and love for…. both baby and Spinelli… would have allowed this?

and… it still riles me… that Ellie and Britt… were lambasted and left in shambles… and/or taking the blame… for their character… I was a lil’ peeved at Spinelli and Patrick… for reading the riot act on some one else…

that being said…

this is a triumph for Maxie and Britt’ character… to real… reel… excellent show.

Shay
Shay

Maxie being kept from her baby is totally heartbreaking…it’s unbelievably mean and cruel to expect her to keep her distance from her daughter, and to have Spinelli subject her to this condition is completely out-of-character for him….at some point the truth needs to will out, no matter the consequences to the Falconeris…..I’m really past caring how this reveal is going to affect them, as it is almost unbearable to see that precious little girl being parented by Lulu and Dante when one look at her just screams “Maxinista Jr.!” I truly hope that this storyline is not dragged out for much longer…although one has to wonder how KS’s real life pregnancy will impact it…too funny the way she finally looks like she’s expecting now that she is no longer “with child” on the show. Me thinks that poor KS is going to get as big as a house….have you noticed even her lips have gotten fuller over the last few episodes???? Poor thing….

I know sonny going through hell now but if he really did love Connie why was he going after Olivia and Connie found out

su0000
su0000

heh men will be men .. lol

Patrick
Patrick

I don’t know that I like; how… “far gone”… Sonny, is going… with this.

yeah, I agree… if he was getting himself romantically, linked with Olivia.

and broke it off to be with Connie…?

I don’t see why Sonny is “over the edge”… because of Connie’ demise.

I don’t appreciate that GH went this route… seeing. as it was supposed to be a “big” sendoff for Kelly Sullivan.

and…. having his three sons show up… to “help” sonny from committing suicide.

it all seems too clear cut… like, no real suspense… and real reasons for Sonny to go this far.

like it was an avenue to send Maurice Benard this route… to show the audience… that sans the mob… he can, in fact… ethos, pathos, and logos…. mode it.

AND… it would seem to me…. this doesn’t bode well for believable… that Sonny and Olivia can look past this… and start again… that renewed pairing.

and… if I’m not jumping the gun… here… his not taking his meds… may be in fact… an avenue… that will trigger… long lasting, emotional story.

ie: I really did like the scene with Sonny and Morgan… when.. Morgan was in the bedroom with his father. Sonny was very believable there. then… he crushes up his bi-polar medication.

Rosalynn
Rosalynn

Just seems like Sonny is always jumping from woman to woman, his crushing scenes over Connie aren’t very convincing, especially since he had been making out with Olivia just days before Connie’s death.

Connie Mac

loved Mary SFs comment about Britt. Makes me want to sing “your a mean one, dr. brinch….” when she is on screen. and yes, I too am a nick/britt fan.

frank
frank

i love britt now. she belongs with nik. they have chemistry. i want dr. o to sing again. dr. o is very entertaining. i will do a duet with dr. o. lol.

Shay
Shay

We are on the same page, Frank. All is right in the GH world when Dr. O. sings!!!!

Rosalynn
Rosalynn

And speaking of chemistry…Dante and the NEW Lulu have none. This re cast was all wrong.

Patrick
Patrick

i’ve said as much, as well….

nuLulu… needs to emote some serious emotions… outside of cutesy cutesy… Dante/Lulu.

this should have been the catalyst for nuLuLu… to trigger.

I actually liked the scene with Lulu and Maxie… when Maxie fessed up that it was the meds and the surgery… aftermath… that had her unglued…

Lulu… finally… showed some motherly instincts thereafter….

what.. with Dante… “busy” with the police force….

I too… hope… that the Maxie storyline… will give Dante and Lulu… some meaty material… that will come between the two in question… to muster up division… and marital bliss, cause mayhem. and see if these two can save themselves…

like… what? Laura is off to Europe for medical checkup? and Luke may be dying? come on Lulu…

I Love GH
I Love GH

Britt has grown on me, too. I would love a Britt-Nck-Elizabeth triangle, particularly when Nick funds out that Britt actually have birth to his sister’s baby. Very soapy!!

I Love GH

Great show!!! Loving GH!!!

OMG! Wasn’t KT absolutely magnificent? Terrifying and hilarious at the same time….sheer brilliance!!!! Only wish dear “Grandmutter” had been lurking about at Wyndemere to help deliver little “Cesar!” That would have been perfection! Instead we got the formulaic “enemy aids her nemesis” storyline here, aka nosy Sabrina is conveniently there when the drama goes down. Her interference into the scene immensely lessened the Nik-Britt bonding moment , but that’s nothing new. To even have her self-righteous, rude busybody self boat over to the island and walk into someone else’s home to harass a pregnant woman just shows that she has no class whatsoever…I adored the fact that Britt gave as good as she got, though!!! (You go, Girl!) It really is time that “Sappy” is given her comeuppance, in that she acts as if she now owns both Patrick and his bratty kid…cannot wait for Robin to show up and change that, STAT! Hopefully, all that the obnoxious “Senorita Santiago” will end up with will be her Girl Scout badge for helping to birth a baby and her (seemingly) endless supply of tacky and immature “Gap Kids” garb….or is it “Old Navy???”

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I have a feeling our mutually favorite ‘Grandmutter’ is hiding in Wyndemere and will eventually reveal herself!

Shay

Well, we can live in hope, jimh!!!! I have read that the multi-talented madwoman/mama (now grandmama!) is slated to return to GH very soon…..cannot wait! (Strike up the karaoke machine?????) ; )

Patrick

I adored the fact that Britt gave as good as she got, though!!! (You go, Girl!) It really is time that “Sappy” is given her comeuppance, in that she acts as if she now owns both Patrick and his bratty kid…

LOL. Thank You… !

I love that “fans” of… are jumping on the bandwagon… that there is so much appeal going on with Nicholas and Britt.

I cannot believe… myself.. in such a short time span… how far… Nicholas and Britt.. have traversed… the natural ease and eye contact… with these two.. is electric…. Yikes! shiver me timbers…

anyway… save, ignoring… Sapp’ina… which Britt did eloquently…

I just loved yesterdays epi… when… Sabrina did save the day… if you will.. in taking her son to the hospital… without Nick and Britt…

I loved the ending scene with Nicholas picking Britt up and.. carrying her to the ferry to take her to the hospital…

and the bonding with her son commenced… with all the love and tenderness… a new mother should. I loved how Nicholas talked Britt through, the medical dialogue of how to save her son…

I was in tears… for Britt.

Shay
Shay

So true, Patrick! Definitely some goosebump moments there!!! Along with the Britt/Nick (and baby!) bonding, there have been some really touching scenes as of late….Sam and Silas, Anna and Maxie….these are the emotional touchstones traditional toGH that we have known and loved throughout the years….such a treat to have them back! And I can say the same for you….I’ve missed your well-versed and elegant musings!!!!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Grandmutter probably will kidnap the baby…also you r right…Patrick shouldve delivered the baby!

Shay

With Dr. O, you never know!!!! As long as she gets to hold the baby and sing to it, I will be happy!!!! Haha….

I had to pass on the last two days of this show. Tooo much pity party for Scummy Corintous who has almost killed his own kids numerous times. Can’t stand the mumbling and bull. Could he just do it,and let the bullet go through him into Olivia two birds with one stone GREAT ! I would have watched saying *just do it*. Shoot .Put us out of our misery.FrankenRon need to stop teasing us, Sonny dead? I read all the blogs and not one said Sonny was the one to watch. They all said he was a joke.I like Maxie and Britt.I just hope Britt is not in cahoots with her parents.

su0000
su0000

Sonny is a cornerstone of GH..
The Sonny scenes were very good, a side of Sonny that is interesting..
Sonny is being written differently than a thud gangster of the 80’s those days are gone and Barnard is an excellent actor; he acts what he is given..
I like this softer Sonny.. 🙂 His scenes were awesome!!

(wish he freak out and shoot Olivia) lol

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Lol…we r on the same page here…i wished Sonny had shot Olivia when he had the chance!

Patrick
Patrick

thank you…

I TOO….

HOPE.. that Britt is not in cahoots… with….

this, is an amazing… find… to traverse …. the luscious being… that Britt… is. period.

to share… how… a person… human… a child of… can find “her” “self”.

and… with child… OK.. the child in question… just adds… layers to Britts character…

and… we have drama that serials deliver… with great aplomb… and head on… trigger that much emotion

Shay
Shay

Agreed….”The Sonny Show” is just the same old, same old cycle of soporific saga: See Sonny brood, see Sonny break things, see Sonny go off his meds, see Sonny wave his gun, see Sonny punch people, see Sonny scream…rinse and repeat!!!!

Shay
Shay

Meant “soporific soap saga”…hence, the “rinse and repeat” reference…

Patrick
Patrick

I have to give props for Brad…..

I love Brad.

he’s likable… in that he delivers… real…. reel…

just as good as… Alice and Epiphany….

that character trait… that actors revel in….

he’s a treat to know.

altho… I do not… like the weakness.. the writers… rote… in character assassination . that Brad… fall all over… Felix.

give me a break…. I’m tired of Felix cheerleading… Patrick and Sabrina… get a life.

Brad… LOL… love how he told Dante… he’s port charles.. hospital… LAB lead… etc…

and loved how Nicholas approached him… hands on shoulder… be a MAN.

too giddy for MORE

Shay
Shay

Still not a “Brad Booster,” but I could tolerate him more if he would become a bit redeemable and spill what he knows. That and less skeevy with Felix! Speaking of “Monsieur DuBois,” he seriously needs to get out of the “Sappy Zone” and mingle with a wider group of people in the hospital and PC community. He has a good heart and sassy wit, but with “Patrina” as his pet project he is just a boring busybody….either save him now or send him off!!!!

paula thomas
paula thomas

off topic, but is it possible that Jason is coming back? so many mentions of him lately and that usually means the character is returning. don’t know if a re-cast will work…need the original. what do you think?
loving the britt-birth and Maxie’s torment in giving up her baby…Kirsten can act her butt off

Shay
Shay

I think the “Jason” mentions are just to throw people off to the true identity of the “watcher” lurking around PC….my best guess is that it is actually Heather…she’s escaped the nuthouse AGAIN! It could also be “Cartini’s” inside joke against SB….he is a huge flop at Y&R, so maybe they are just putting the character’s name out there to torment him a bit….I cannot envision a recast taking at this point. The only way they could have maybe credibly pulled it off was to use Sean Kanan in the role, and it’s too late for that option, unless the ptb’s execute an extremely clever and creative way to achieve that feat. Too bad…I really believe SK could have managed it, but I am loving him as AJ, despite the fact his character has been unnecessarily abused. (A tad off subject, but doesn’t the actor have truly great hair???? Everytime I see him, I cannot help but notice….)

Rosalynn
Rosalynn

I hope Jason IS the one lurking around, a recast for him would be a monster mistake. He currently has a lame role in the Young and the Restless…he needs to go back to GH big time.

Ok I watched all BUT scummy, and his brain dead family. The scenes between Britt, Nick and Sabrina were great. I enjoyed them a lot,Did I say that about GH?? Did the writer who wrote the pity party also write the birth? How can someone with this talent also write this drivel? I even laughed at Maxie and Spin Total soap secret. Does anyone on a soap ever look around to see who is listening to what is going around behind them. I like Emme Ryland always have Loved her as Lizzie on GL and I do like her on this, I don’t want to see her pain when it comes out but .I will be cheering Dantes pain. he is disgusting .The worst cop EVER! Why is Spin acting so dense. Ellie is the evul ,but him and Maxie are the saints for giving away their baby???

rebecca1
rebecca1

Though I’m loving GH…I still think some major storylines are ridiculous:

Maxie loves Lulu MORE than her own baby??? (Apparently Lulu doesn’t reciprocate)

Lulu was ready to abandon Maxie, a best friend/woman who carried her baby, gave her and Dante the child they never thought they would have, went through nine months of pregnancy and all that goes with it, had a cesarean ,almost died in the process…BUT!…after all this Dante and Lulu have the audacity to “scold” Maxie and treat her like some maniacal stalker who is going to harm “their” child.

Ridiculous. In “real life”….or the way I would conduct my real life under those circumstamces, I would show and feel much concern for my best friend’s physical and mental health after what she just went through. If I did feel there was an over-the-top attachment to what I thought was my baby…I’d gently speak with my best friend and perhaps her doctors…until all was right again. I’d embrace my friend and show her compassion and understanding…and suggest that maybe she take some time to get back to herself…assure her I love her and that she’ll be a part of the baby’s life…but that now she needs to heal…

Instead? We get Dante and Lulu reprimanding and threatening Maxi in her hospital room…cold, harsh, unsympathetic.

Afer all this? Maxi doesn’t want to hurt Lulu and Dante??? Paleeeez. The bond between mother and child should override any feelings of guilt she may have, and their attitude toward her should have given her the final push to tell them the truth.

I don’t know how Maxi can feel the same love for her best friend after that display of ingratitude.

The same for Carly with Sonny. He threatened to KILL HER if Olivia died just a few weeks ago. Now I know he loves Olivia…and he was pissed at Carly…but threaten to kill the mother of your child…the woman you’ve had a tumultuous love story wtih for years? And what? Now all is forgiven and Carly’s still supportive of him? Would take a tad more to regain any trust, friendship or any type of warm, fuzzy feeling s after someone threatens to kill you…

Where is Felicia and Mac? I understand there are still budget constraints and as much as I loved seeing Anna with Maxi…realistically wouldn’t Mac and Felicia be with Maxi?

There’s a need to give more screen time to the vets they’ve brought back…but there should be a way to do it without sacrificing the family unity…the frienship bonds…that have always made soaps so wonderful. If you think about it every scene is empty of cast. Two at a time for the most part. The “halls” seem empty…

i think Britt’s baby is actually Dante and lulus baby she used there extra sperm and egg to get pregnant i think brad was trying to tell Dante that hes the father of the baby not him

Colleen
Colleen

Ever since Britt announced she was pregnant and Maxie lost Lulu and Dante’s baby, I have thought that Britt actually was carrying Dante and Lulu’s baby. Just makes since, she had access to the extra eggs in the lab. Plus Brad was shocked when confronted that he was the fathers baby…

Big Brother

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Should Drew Get The Flash Drive Back, But Lose The Last Five Years Of His Life In Doing So?

On Friday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, Drew (Billy Miller) is faced with a dilemma that could change the course of his life forever.  It all comes down to DA Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), and her vendetta against Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard), and how she is leveraging her possession of the flash drive that holds all of Drew’s memories and the key to his past.

In a confrontation at the Metro Court, Drew comes over to talk to Margaux, where he says he is not sure why he hasn’t taken it upon himself to turn her into the cops.  She adamantly points out that she is an attorney, and that he has no evidence that could be used against her in a court of law.  While she goes on about making Sonny pay for what he did to her father, she tries to get Drew to come along with her in her vendetta.  Drew refuses, not because of Sonny or Jason (Steve Burton), but he does not want to do this to Sam (Kelly Monaco) and have Danny be without his father.

Drew then stands up to her and tells he he knows she has been manipulating him for months. Even knowing she has the key to his life with the flashdrive that hold all of his missing years, Drew tells Margaux that she can hold this over his head, but even if he had the flashdrive there is a chance that the procedure to restore his memories could go wrong, and the sad fact that in doing the procedure, he will definitely lose the last five years of his life and all of those memories with Sam and more.  He says to Margaux that those memories mean everything to him.

A confident and irritated Marqaux tells him she is sure he will want the flash drive one day and that he knows her terms if she was to give it to him – helping her bring down Sonny and Jason for the murder of her father.   Drew is left with a difficult decision, while Margaux gets into an elevator and begins to cry over wanting to avenge her father’s death.  But little does she know, that evidence could prove that he was not the man she thinks he was.

So this begs the question to GH fans: Would you like to see Drew retrieve all of his memories as Andrew Cain, at the cost of losing the last five year of his life since being in Port Charles …  or should Drew leave his mind and memories alone and just go forward keeping the last five years in tact, and foregoing what other important history in his life that he may need to know now, or in the future?
