    GH Recap: It Sucks Being A Parent.

    Thursday, May 01 2014
    Obrecht and Dante make a deal, Patrick talks to Robin, and Madeline tells Nathan a secret.


    Silas bumps into Sam in the hospital corridor. They discuss Patrick and Sabrina's baby. The doctor admits the kid's odds aren't good. "It sucks being a parent," Sam says. He tries to be optimistic. She tears up and hopes that the parents will be as lucky as she was. Down the hall, Sabrina and Patrick are in the incubator room worrying about their baby. He wanders out. Victor pops up to check on him. Robin read about his accident on the internet. The doctor wants him to get lost but Victor offers him a chance to speak to Robin. The Cassadine hands him a phone number that will be active for an hour. Patrick walks down the hall and makes the call. He updates Robin on everything and asks her to come home. She won't so he accuses her of putting Jason above her family. He angrily tells her not to bother coming back. Back in the incubator room, Britt visits Sabrina. The doctor says the latest tests show improvement.

    In the cells, Nathan lectures Madeline for lying to him for twenty years. She suddenly tells him his sister is still alive. They argue and he accuses her of lying. Madeline explains that Nina is in a secret facility. She asks him to keep this quiet. Silas interrupts so Nathan leaves. They face off and she tells him he'll never get near Nina again. Upstairs at the PCPD, Dante and Lulu offer to make a deal with Obrecht. She's not saying anything until she gets it in writing. The document is delivered. She's satisfied and signs. Dante prompts her to make a call and get the embryo. She calls Victor, dumps him and then they arrange for a drop. Liesl hands off the details to Dante. After having the papers filed, she's unhappy to hear they are giving her an ankle monitor. Nathan arrives just in time to strap it on. He feels like he's exchanged one psycho mom for another. Liesl tells him how much she loves him. "Lady, I don't even know you," he says. She wants them to be a family. He doesn't even know who his family is anymore. He demands to know who his father is.

    Somewhere, Nina wakes up in a hospital bed and gasps "Silas!"

    Maxie and Levi are locking lips at Kelly's. She wants her parents to like him. Maxie worries that Lulu will never forgive what she did. He gives her a pep talk. They kiss until Mac and Felicia interrupt. "Mind taking your tongue our of my daughter's mouth?" Mac barks. He's gruff and begins interrogating Levi. News that he is vegan doesn't sit well with Mac. Lulu and Dante stroll in. That's awkward. Maxie tells them how happy she is for them. Maxie knows that getting Rocco won't erase everything she did. She apologizes profusely and hopes they can be friends again some day. Choking up, Lulu tells her she wants to be friends too. They hug. Dante and Lulu walk outside. Victor arrives and hands them a package.

    I'm not a long term GH watcher but I tell you, they move their s/l's quicker than Y&R does. LOVED the ending! Michelle Stafford is a great actress! GH is cleaning up with Y&R actors. Enjoyed the entire episode today; I guess Victor is Nathan's dad? They kept showing him every time Nathan asked for his father's name. Loved that NuLu and Maxie are back as friends again. Not liking Levi though and I don't think Mac does, either. The scenes between Britt and Sabrina were nice, too. I hope the baby pulls through. Dr. O has some nice looking children! Britt and Nathan look like they are brother sister in real life. Oh and Rocco, wow has he taken to NuLu; she looked like he was his mother in real life, his comfort level with her was very nice to see.

    How stupid this show has become. I realize this is a soap, but it has become so camp. That worked back in the 1980's but now it just seems so outdated.
    Like Nina, who has been in a coma for 20+ years wakes up and is going to be fully functional. In real life this just doesn't happen. You lie in a bed for 20 years all your muscles atrophy away, no way can you wake up and be fine.
    The current writing team has made this show like bad joke.

    Way to go Patrick! Proud of you today.

    I am sure that Nina has gotten physical therapy these past 20 years so her muscles did NOT atrophy.
    But of course IRL, it would be different. And IRL, dead people do NOT come back like they have in soaps since the beginning.

    Britt & Sabrina were touching today, as was Patrick. Too bad Robin has other priorities because Emma and Patrick deserve better. So this is the end of Scrubs… another one bites the dust. Character development wise, Patrick needs to move on. Not necessarily with Sabrina, but he can’t keep his life in limbo pending Robin’s “resurrection” schedule.

    There’s nothing subtle in the writing, more like being hit with a ton of bricks. So I can assume that Victor C. is Nathan’s father. Also, it was pretty obvious that Nina Clay would show up in PC soon. What I didn’t anticipate was putting a face to the name! Since we are picking actors from Y&R can we have Mr. Robert Scorpio back? PLEASE!

    Loved Maxie & Lulu’s reunion! There is hope after all! Who I do not care for is Levi; he comes across as shifty to me.

    Can’t wait for Dr. O’s reception back at GH, should be interesting.

    Sam & Patrick’s chemistry as friends is always good to see. Looking forward to that.

    Comment about Tuesday's show: I realize that Alexis is Sonny's lawyer, but why did she run straight to him to warn him that Morgan ratted Ava out to Julian?
    I just do not see how she can screw Julian but be on Sonny's side?

    Hi everyone
    Todays show was good. Welcome back Victor. I have a feeling Victor is the father of Nathan the way that Dr.O was talking and then they showed Victor.
    Love Mac, Felicia, Maxi and Levi's scenes. Way to go Mac!!! Keep an eye on this Levi guy. I don't trust him either. Nina is alive, I don't know this actress as never watched that other soap but looking forward to Silas finding out she is alive. Off screen I guess Nina has been massaged and such but we will have to wait to see if she can talk. Also what happened to her child. I see yesterday some think it could be Levi...hummm interesting thought.
