    If Nulu isn't entitled to be furious at Maxie for keeping the fact that she miscarried Nulu's daughter from her, and then tried to pawn off her own (unwanted and inconvenient) daughter on them in place of the one that she lost, then no one should ever be permitted to get angry over anything, ever again.

    The idea that Maxie's heart was in the right place, or that she was trying to do the right thing the wrong way, ignores the fact that those are all just rationalizations that made it easy for Maxie to convince herself that it was okay to take advantage of a unique situation that Fate presented her. It was a golden opportunity to not only avoid disappointing Dante and Nulu and proving everyone right who said she was a poor choice for a surrogate, but also to avoid motherhood, and the responsibilities of raising the child that SHE conceived but wanted no part of until after she was born. She heartlessly betrayed her best friends who had entrusted her with the most precious thing imaginable, planned to abandon her own daughter, and coerced Spinelli to go along with her horrible deception after the fact, not because she believed it would be better for her daughter OR for Dante and Nulu, but because SHE couldn't bear the thought of the humiliation of living down to everyone's lowest expectations of her. Now, she has not only proven her harshest critics right, but she has exceeded the worst case scenarios that most of them could've possibly imagined.

    I can't understand those who think that Nulu is overreacting and that she should "get over it" and cut Maxie some slack. She just found out that for all intents and purposes, her child is DEAD for pity's sake! I don't see what's so “well intentioned” about some woman trying to switch her unwanted baby with that of another couple without their knowledge. That stunt put Maxie on the verge of becoming a Heather starter kit! These are the lives of innocent children and their parents that she was playing around with as if they were hers to manipulate as she pleased. Even her dead sister Georgie pleaded with her from the afterlife to come clean, and she refused!

    I LOVE Maxie! She's always been one of my favorite characters on the show, and she still is, but for what she's done, she deserves to be shunned and worse!

    Ransomha...Good to see you back. I'm also looking forward to the reunion scenes with Robin, her family and friends.

    Scrimmage...I have to agree with Lovely Marlena and Dexdon's posts re Robin. She might not be a favourite for many viewers, but she is a vet character with many connections on the canvas. I can understand why the current PTB waited for KM to be available to come back and reprise the role she has played since she was a child.

    Hi everyone,

    My opinion of the exchange (attack) between Lante and Spixie today is not going to be popular and knowing this I'm going to express it anyway. Just as Dante was going into Mr. Sir, Jr. mode and Lulu was channeling her cousin Carly, both Maxi and Spinelli told them that they discussed the situation and wanted to give them a baby. Of course both Lulu and Dante had whipped themselves into such a frenzy by then that any good sense either of them has ever had was gone. Don't look a gift baby, that you claim to love, in the mouth. I think the best of the bad dialogue was the accusation that somehow they were tricked into loving the baby and Lulu's shreiking declaration that she knew she shouldn't have used Maxi to her surrogate. Yes, Lulu, you're probably right you did make a bad decision that you won't admit to either. Just shut it and go home to your baby before you give Maxi and Spinelli a reason to sue for custody.

    I give line of the day to Alexis for blurting out the question: "Did I have another baby with a mobster" after staring at Derek as if he were her own personal white knight.

    The surprise of the day for me was the Jerry Jax funded the Nurses Ball just so that he could obtain a recording of it. Two guesses who made the DVD - Frau Blucher wasn't just glued to the TV to watch Rick Springfield rock his stuff that night.

    So now the good frau has put herself into Anna's crosshairs again. I wonder why she needs the baby? I certainly hope these writers wouldn't go so far as to use a baby for experimental purposes, but I wouldn't put it past them.

    Duke is already in Julian Jerome's crosshairs. It's too bad he's not as good at subterfuge as he thinks he is. It's time for the heroes to come back. Anna is going to need all the help she can get.

    So I guess Sabrina's insecurities were eased by seeing Patrick put his ring next to Robin's in a memorial box on the mantle. Again, she chose to be with him, so every time she puts on the face to get her way makes me want Robin to find the cure faster.

    Scrimmage ~ ITA your post on Maxie. I have always liked this character as well, not at all happy with how this story line was written.

    I think Frau Blücher has taken Baby Ben for secret SORASing experiments, and will accelerate his growth so much that by the time anybody catches up to her, Ben will be another surly teenager with daddy issues.

    Lily-- I think baby Ben was created for experimental purposes, which in itself is rather disgusting. I don't think the writer's would flinch at further experimentation.

    rans and bayou - I agree that Diane will work for the highest bidder, but I doubt Sonny would allow her to represent his son and DIL. Lulu and Dante don't have the cash to be the highest bidder here and since Nicholas and Sonny are the only ones with any cash, I'd say Alexis will be tapped.
    I don't know why, but something tells me this won't go to a custody case.
    Especially with the baby bump KS is already sporting.

    Scrimmage - This baby SL has been a piece of garbage since the first time we saw the puppy. In fact that cute puppy was the only thing I've enjoyed concerning this SL.
    The only thing that would end it in a way that I would enjoy would be to find out that Britt was rushing to meet Patrick and made a mistake on NYE. No miscarriage, no problem.

    Lily Hunter ~ I'm sure Nicholas would be happy to give Dante and Lulu all the money they need for the custody battle.


    I think KS probably won't be on after the November sweeps.
    I think she is due in January, and they are already having a problem covering it up now.
