    Making Something Out Of Nothing?

    Friday, April 26 2013
    Maxie confronts Ellie, Johnny tries to reach a few contacts in Port Charles, and Britt takes Patrick up on his offer.


    (ABC)

    Anna's confused when room service is announced outside her room. She finds Duke standing there with a white rose and dinner for two. They talk about Dante and Lulu. Duke sympathizes with Dante's situation. Anna appreciated their tango at the Nurses' Ball. She feels it did remove the ghost of Faison from their lives. They reflect on the kiss they exchanged and sit down for dinner which he promises he didn't pay for with counterfeit money. He surprises her with her favorite foods. They remember their past and Duke shares that he's ready for them to rebuild their future if she is. She agrees to let him make her happy. They kiss. He's pleased she doesn't think they're dreaming. She wants them to wait making him worry she's having second thoughts. Anna takes the time to explain if he breaks the law she will have to come after him. He doesn't have a problem with that and they go to the bedroom.


    Patrick finds Britt crying at his door. She says she couldn't do it. He asks if that means she decided to keep the baby. Britt tells him she can't go through it alone and wants to take him up on his offer. She apologizes for the short notice and explains there is no one else in her life to ask for support. Patrick agrees to go after he cancels his date with Sabrina. Britt smiles to herself as he starts to make the call. She offers to go alone but he says it's okay.

    Carly denies a collect call from Johnny Zacchara as Felix confirms a reservation for Sabrina for a hot date with the man of her dreams. Carly compliments Sabrina while Felix points out his fashion successes with Sabrina's new look. Felix leaves Sabrina in Carly's hands. Sabrina asks Carly for advice. Carly thinks Felix overstated her qualifications. She exclaims she's the last person Sabrina should ask for advice on men. Sabrina doesn't let her off the hook and Carly shares what she learned from her mistakes. Sabrina wants to know what happened in the end. Carly explains she's made enough mistakes in love that now she is getting phone calls from prison. Sabrina is sorry Carly's been so unlucky but compliments her on her confidence. Carly remembers how Jason played a part in that. She tells Sabrina Patrick is a great guy, she had her own fun when she dated him. A worried look crosses Sabrina's face. Carly adds it was a long time ago and leaves to get her champagne. Sabrina receives a call from Patrick cancelling their date. She apologizes to Carly for the cancellation. Carly sits down with the bottle of champagne. She has a glass alone. While conversing with Jason she deletes Johnny's info from her phone.

    At Patrick's, Felix tells Britt, "Nice play," before they leave. Sabrina joins Felix to babysit. He hugs her, sorry that her date is ruined.

    Patrick waits with Britt at the clinic.

    Maxie confronts Ellie at GH threatening to fire her. Ellie pleads that she was only trying to help Maxie. Her pleading turns confrontational and she verbally attacks Maxie sure that she is hiding something. Maxie decides Ellie heard nothing and rudely dismisses her. Ellie receives a call from Spin as she's trying to get into the online hospital records. He asks if there is a problem. She confirms there is and he is just the person who can help. Ellie makes up a few lies convincing a hesitant Spinelli to help her gain access to the hospital mainframe before they hang up. She copies files to a flash drive and leaves.

    Connie welcomes "New Maxie" after Maxie didn't show up at work. New Maxie is overwhelmed when Connie receives a phone call from Johnny. He asks to see her about something important. Connie explains things have changed and she's not the old Connie anymore. He doesn't care and wants her to come to Pentonville. Maxie arrives at Crimson and asks the new girl who she is. She introduces herself as the "New Maxie." Maxie confronts Connie who tells Maxie she's fired. Bits of old Kate rattle Maxie as she tries to explain. Connie corrects her a few times when she calls Connie "Kate." Connie decides to give Maxie another chance doubting New Maxie can handle it. On her way out she fires New Maxie in classic Kate fashion. Maxie learns Gwyneth's name and tells her to stick around as a fill-in when the baby comes. She's startled when she feels her baby move.

    At Pentonville Johnny tells Connie she's there because someone's life depends on it.

    Monday’s Port Charles spoilers for General Hospital:

    Patrick asks Britt if she's having the abortion because of him.

    Emma wonders why Sabrina is not out on a date with her daddy.

    TJ thinks he and Molly are finally back on track.

    Asking Carly for advice on love is like asking a cobra for advice on warm fuzzy hugs.

    If Patrick's that dumb then I think he deserves Britt.

    Used to like Ellie...now I hope she's hit by another car.

    Was Johnny shirtless when Connie showed up? That's very important to me.

    Hi everyone,

    I thought there was something terribly wrong with today's show. We had Duke surprise Anna with a special dinner and we had Sabrina looking really beautiful for her date with Patrick and yet Maxie still didn't report for her first day at Crimson. I was relieved and not totally surprised Maxie was extremely late, that seems to be a trait many characters share.
    So I've come to the conclusion Ellie is no different than any other sneaky, deceiving character, the only difference is she uses fancy words and relates everything to science facts. Ellie should be fired for breaching patient confidentiality. Where is Epiphany when you need her?
    Nice to see Johnny, but who is in danger? It has to be someone that is connected to Carly and by extension Sonny, if he had to resort to calling Connie. I guess Johnny and Connie can resolve the marriage issue as well.
    Britt is so playing Patrick and he's too good a person to see through her game. Felix on the other hand has no problem calling her out on it. Go Felix, look out for your friend Sabrina.
    Is Carly going to drink the whole bottle of champagne as she wallows in self-pity? Has she not learned after what Michael went through? It can only lead to trouble.

    If Patrina was going to have dinner, at what time is briotch having that abortion? ?

    I think the writers are doing the character of Ellie a disservice. Her personality as was first shown would not have engaged in the devious activity that she is doing now.
    It is only being done to further the story line and for Spinelli to find out that he is the father of Maxie's baby.
    I don't think Spin will end up with Maxie, but will choose to co-parent with her if it comes out. My feeling, as I have said before, that the baby is truly Lante's and there will be a huge scene when this is revealed further down the road.

    I guess if we can't have Nik today, a Johnny sighting is the next best thing.

    Akita-- Must be an after hours clinic.

    I think I heard Johnny say Carly was in trouble. Everything is messed up.I'm getting confused.It's spinelli's baby ,it's Dante's baby .Is Britt really pregnant? Hurry and bring Robin back. Ellie just thinks something is wrong with Maxie's baby and thinks Dante and Lulu should know. Hello to everyone

    I said yesterday that Ellie should've asked Spinelli for help hacking into the GH records system. I'll say this for her, Ellie doesn't back down, and she's doesn't have any illusions about how serious a breach of professional and personal ethics she committing. She also isn't making any excuses, or attempting to justify her actions beyond her belief that she's acting on behalf of the child and it's parents. She is acting dishonorably for a noble cause. As far as she knows, Ellie has nothing personal to gain, OR to lose, one way or the other, but she smells a rat, and she's about to find it. Once she learns the truth, we'll see how well her ethics hold up.

    Hi Johnny! Prison seems to agree with him. With everything else that's been going on, I almost forgot he was still married to Connie. I'm glad he's still on the show, and it's good to know the transporter is still in fine working order. Connie didn't even have to put on a coat. I'll bet the other inmates were happy to see THAT! I guess Johnny feels like he's been punished enough, so now he'll save somebody's life and get his sentence commuted to time served, and get out. It would have to be someone important though, so that rules out Nuke. Or maybe he just wants to apologize to Connie for saying that he preferred prison to married life with her.

    Speaking of which, I wonder... where IS Connie living?

    By the way, Johnny, great move giving up your interest in the Haunted Star to Starr, who has taken off for good, apparently abandoning her investment, meanwhile the other partner in the business wouldn't know the Haunted Star from the Titanic. Of course, it doesn't matter since the boat is probably being held as evidence in a multiple homicide / kidnapping investigation. Who knows where it even IS?

    Drake Jr. is SO stupid. Instead of falling for her transparent strategy, he should say “Okay Britt, just shut up, and let's get this over with.” Too much talking, not enough driving.

    I don't know what Sabrina's best color is, but it's definitely NOT pink. Did she say Felix picked out her dress, or Molly?

    I wonder if someone actually wrote Carly's dialog today, or if she was just doing that on her own, but that convoluted stream-of-Carly-consciousness recap of her recent history with men was pure genius, as well as very revealing about how Carly sees things in retrospect. She realizes she had it all with Jax when they were married, but she blew it when she let “certain situations” – her insane paranoia and jealousy of all things Brenda – drive them apart. Her blind rage over Brenda made her lose sight of the big picture, and it cost her everything.

    I never liked Duke when he was first on the show years ago, and more recently I thought he was especially smarmy when he was Faison pretending to be Duke, which is why I'm very pleasantly surprised that I find myself liking the real Duke the longer he sticks around. I could do with fewer of his proclamations of love for Anna, and more of his corporate wheelings and dealings for ELQ, but despite my initial dislike of the character, he's growing on me, which is the mark of a good actor.

    Maxie's face when she met NuMaxie was hilarious! Her “You need me” scene with Connie was very good too. Dang it! It's so easy for me to pull for Maxie, but then I remember that what she's doing, and what she's PLANNING to do is so despicable! Even if the truth comes out NOW it'll be bad enough, much less a few months or even years into the future. How can she ever be redeemed from this?

    I like Patrick, but has he always been this stupid or whatever???? Britch has got him right where she wants him and he is too dense to realize that she is manipulating him big time.

    Felix needs to go empty bed pans. He is soooooooo annoying.

    Ellie is another one. Who does she think she is?? At least Maxie didn't fall for her line of BS. And now she has Spin doing something illegal also just so satisfy her nosiness about the secret. I hope this backfires big time in that twit's face.

    Carly is going to be sorry she didn't take Johnny's phone call. Evidently, she doesn't think it can be about anyone but her.

    Connie is right-NuMaxie can't handle it. But, she needs to stick around. NuMaxie might actually be there alot more than Lulu ever was when Kate was actually paying both her and Maxie to work at Crimson.

    lovesdogs: When we first met Ellie, she ran a unauthorized DNA test for Spin on Danny.

    She's been a sneak rule breaker from day one!

    Felix oversteps . What nerve to police who visits Patrick's home.
    This guy gets on my nerves.

    Happy to see Johnny.
    LovelyMar: A gift to you!

    My guess is Britt will be told she's too far along for termination.
    Sabrina better get use to lots of broken plans.

    You could see this was no cliffhanger friday.....
