Quote Bettie Davis: This is what I have been thinking, Mac tells Maxie he thought it wasn't a good idea for Maxie to do this and if I remember she really only did this to show Spin she can do a good thing for someone, all she wanted was Spin, and then she lost the baby, and it was discarded, like you know what I am thinking I don't have to say it, has no remorse of a child lost, has sex and then lies to not to protect Lulu and Dante but, for her self, and then gives birth the truth comes out, and she just thinks she can go over to Lulu and Dante's and say OH, she's mine and you can't have her, and don't forget Lulu and Dante have loved and bonded with Connie, no she does not deserve Connie and who cares what kind of past these two had Maxie did so wrong this time but, this is my opinion.
Bettie I agree with you 100% or maybe 90%. I think baby Connie should be with Maxi and Spin because they are the biological parents and they want her and so far it looks like they will be good parents.
First of all let me state that I like Maxi and Lulu and I am only commenting on this baby SL and what I saw happening during this story line. JMO.
I totally agree with everything else you said Bettie ....Maxi is solely responsible for this disaster. Lulu was just hit by this unexpected tidal wave maxi created and she is drowning in it. I will give Lulu a break as long as she doesn't hurt the baby ...somebody has to get hurt here, there is no way out of that ...if somebody has to get hurt, who should it be? The person who created the situation or an innocent person who just got dragged into it?
The primary reason why Maxi wanted to be a surrogate was to prove to Spin that she can be a person with substance ...with a bonus of giving a baby to her best friend.
When Maxi lost the baby and got pregnant again with Spin's baby, she went to tell Spin but as soon as she found out Spin and Ellie are back together she decided not to tell Spin and make this big mess. Why didn't she tell Spin?
Selfish reason - She didn't want to be a single mom.
Selfless reason - She promised her best friend a baby so she was going to stand by her promise and give away her own baby. But then why did she go to tell Spin in the first place?
By any means this is not an easy situation to be in but I never saw Maxi's actions (in this SL) as selfless ...I always felt like the primary motive behind her actions were always a selfish motive and then she always justified it by giving it a secondary selfless motive. This is just how I feel when I watch this SL.
