Alexis came to Port Charles to defend one character against stalking charges levied by another. The cheating and scheming that takes place among those linked to General Hospital has kept her quite busy throughout the years.
She's had romantic liaisons with Ned Ashton and Jasper Jacks, and her stormy marriage with Ric Lansing is all but done. She probably found her most romantic moment with steamy, Sonny Corinthos, and when she finally relented to having sex with him, it resulted in the birth of daughter, Kristina. With her child's welfare in mind, Alexis halted any contact with him and the mob connections that have already cost the lives of so many but eventually softened and let him have visitation with his daughter.
As part of the Cassidine clan, Alexis is plagued by her hatred for Helena for killing her mother right in front of her. Even after joining up with Luke Spencer to rid the world of the evil woman, Helena still turns up periodically to remind us that she is invincible.
It seems that every act that involves Alexis has a consequence. If she wins a case, she loses a lover. She can't find peace no matter how hard she tries. She recently learned that Sam McCall is the daughter she gave up years ago, and then discovered her in a compromising position with husband, Ric. Alexis had the fight of her life when she faced cancer, but came out on top. She continues to fight the bad guys of Port Charles by day, but ends up befriending them in her off hours.
When Sonny's son Michael was shot (and put in a coma) in 2008, she fought to keep Kristina, her daughter with Sonny, away from him. She and her BFF, fellow attorney Diane Miller, are often each other's sounding board and drinking partner.
Against her better judgment, she gave in to a love affair with Jerry Jacks. As District Attorney, she knew better than to align herself with a known criminal, but as a woman she was lonely.
Alexis was exposed as having an affair with the married Mayor Floyd. His wife Andrea tried to set Alexis up for killing his mistress and stalking the mayor. During this time Alexis also confessed to running Claudia off the road, which caused the death of her baby. Alexis was actually covering for her daughter Kristina and was cleared of all crimes.
Molly and Kristina became focused on setting their mother up with Mac and they went on a few friendly dates. Alexis also started working in the private sector, teaming up with Diane Miller at her firm.
Things turned serious again after Alexis found a beaten Kristina in their home. She rushed her daughter to the hospital and unknowingly hit Kristina's abuser, Kiefer Bauer, with her car and killed him. She got off with community service.
The ensuing months were spent trying to keep Kristina on track for high school graduation and away from older man Ethan Lovett. She was also a sounding board for Sam, who wanted to have a baby. When Kristina didn't get into Yale, Alexis went to Sonny to pull some strings in order to keep their daughter away from Ethan. It worked, but in order to keep their alliance quiet, Sonny forced her to represent him again.

Nina tells Franco, "You lied to me." Franco apologizes for failing her. He tells Nina she's maybe the only friend he's had and she can't turn her back on him.

At the courthouse, Maxie video chats with Nathan over the phone. Maxie is waiting for her custody hearing to begin and Nathan wishes her luck. She hopes to see Nathan soon and hangs up. Lulu arrives and keeps Maxie calm. Mac and Felicia aren’t coming as they are caught up at the courthouse due to the mayoral race recount. Maxie panics when Diane texts that she cannot make it either due to being stuck in another trial. Fortunately Alexis shows up to take Diane’s place. Judge Walters takes the bench and is surprised to see Alexis defending Maxie given their history in this courtroom, but Alexis says her job today is to show that Maxie has demonstrated herself to be a fit mother. The judge notes that Maxie has done everything required to regain custody of her daughter, except she has failed to stay away from Nathan West. Alexis says this directive was not in the documents she reviewed. Walters says he gave it to her verbally, and he has several recorded accounts of Maxie being spotted with Nathan West. He denies her visitation and says they will revisit this in sixth months. Alexis finds this outrageous and plans to file an appeal.
