GENERAL HOSPITAL: Maxie/Anna Touching Scene! Dante & Lulu Name "Their" Baby … Connie!

Courtesy/GH

Courtesy/GH

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!

If Kristen Storms does not get any Emmy nom it will be ludicrous !!!!

I would have given Connie as the middle name !

I agree and am keeping my fingers crossed that Kirsten gets an emmy nod and win! I was also thinking that Connie could have been the middle name. After all, neither Dante nor Lulu were close to Connie. I think Connie’s middle name was Louise which would be cute seeing that there are a lot of Spencers with an “L” name.

Her name shouldve been Louise…Great grandma Leslie(who shouldve been at the hospital), grandma Laura, mama Lulu, and baby Louise but what heartache when they all find out the baby girl is really Maxis and Spinnellis…scene should be a real tearjerker when Dante and Lulu find out she isnt their daughter…maybe in Nov. sweeps!!!

Kristen and Bradford both deserve an emmy…their scenes at the hospital were unbeatable…imho!

Agreed! Kirsten has been fantastic. Her scene with Anna was just wonderful. Loved the layers in the dialogue and the performances.

And Ron surprised me again. I was sure that baby wouldn’t get a name until she was back with spixie. Nope, gh kept me on my toes again.

I wouldve named her Damianna after her father…kidding…im cool with Connie until her true parentage is revealed to all probably during Nov. sweeps…still hoping Sonny goes off the deep end and kills Olivia…Diane and Kevin could claim temporary insanity so Sonny will avoid prison…LOL!!!

Kirsten Storms as Maxie and Bradford Anderson as Spinelli have been the acting powerhouses of this “baby” story line, giving Emmy-caliber performances which have given the needed heart, integrity and emotional intensity to this story. Wonderful work!

And, of course, Finola Hughes is a gem, always bringing depth and real emotions to her scenes!

And who can resist watching a handsome man holding an infant – and when that man is seen doing in the midst of an emotional crisis – even more heart-warming. Touching scene with Mo and baby “Connie.”

I predict theyll win a much deserved emmy next year, and the show as well!

I don’t always credit Maurice with being a great actor, but that split second yesterday, when they told him the baby’s name, his reaction was priceless. I think all of soapdom uttered a collective, “awwwwww”….

Loved the Maxie/Anna scenes! Has anyone else grown to dislike Sonny as much as I have??? I used to WORSHIP him and now I find myself just FF through his scenes. He’s SOOOO melodramatic and over the top (even when it isn’t related to his bi-polar disorder). The only scenes l enjoys of his are when he is bantering with Alexis. What happened to my Sonny from the 90’s? UGH!

Finola Hughes is a treasure trove for GH. Be it gentle and nurturing or tough and kick-ass, she brings it every single time – like a boss!

I usuaklly grimace at switched-baby and dubious parentage storylines, but the actors here rock it, particularly Miss Storms. Just please let there be resolution before Christmas!

Kirsten and Finola were/are fabulous!!! I would also add that Bradford was incredible too! However this is about yesterday’s episode, which was just incredible! Kirsten and Finola are two of my top 5-10 actors on GH! If Kirsten, Finola and Bradford don’t get Emmy’s for this work… they will have been robbed! Kirsten especially has been stellar in every scene and your heart just goes out to her… I just want her to have little Georgie for her own so badly!!! I love when we get to see Finola/Anna more and when we get to see the many sides of… Read more »

I wanted to add that I love scenes like this and they are needed and add so much to the show! I know doing something like this scene is not addressing Luke and his quest and many other storylines that are back burnered at the moment. This scene brought the continuing story line moving and is setting things up but it is also one of those scenes that you need more of where you get to see two characters and actors deal with a difficult emotional issue in a sweet and simple way that let’s us see these characters being… Read more »

Enough with the secret that Lulu and Dante aren’t the parents of Connie……. this is what annoys me the most about soap opera’s how they drag the story on forever! Hopefully Brad will open his mouth and tell someone or everyone that the baby is Spinelli’s and Maxie’s. Let’s be done with this story!

General Hospital’s Halloween Week Promo Touts Wicked Surprises

Looks like everyone will be on edge this week as Halloween comes to Port Charles.  In the newly-released ABC promo for General Hospital, it reveals that this spooky week of episodes will be a rollercoaster ride, featuring wicked surprises, and killer costumes.

After Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) scolds Franco (Roger Howarth) for having his hand in the candy jar, Anna (Finola Hughes) or is it? … is donning a black witches hat. Jackie (Kim Delaney) is seen opening her door, juxtaposed with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) saying “trick or treat”. But, is he actually at the door of someone else?

Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) asks Ava (Maura West), “Darling, what are you holding behind your back?” That is revealed to be a knife, but is it Ava who truly has the knife?

 

Meanwhile, Jason (Steve Burton) is looking around in the dark.  Elsewhere, Peter is jumpy.  So much so that Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) utters, “Looks like you’ve seen a ghost.”

Add all that to last Friday’s episode of GH where Carly(Laura Wright) thinks she saw Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) hand come out of her grave and attack her! Is Nelle (Chloe Lanier) going to be proven to be alive? And if so, will she pop up on Halloween and scare the hell out of Carly?

Watch the promo below, then let us know what you think will happen this week on General Hospital via the comment section.
