Sabrina tells Patrick about Britt’s delivery and that Brad took off, but Nik stuck around. Sabrina understands Patrick can’t shut off his feelings for the baby. Patrick says he fell in love with the idea of another child. Sabrina wants him to focus on the two of them and Emma and be thankful for what is.

Nikolas brings the baby to see Britt. She thanks him for everything he did to help her through the delivery. Nik goes to hand over the baby, but Britt decides she doesn’t want him. Nik asks why she doesn’t want to bond with her son. Britt feels she’ll be a terrible mother, like her own. Nik points out they aren’t their parents. Britt persists, so Nikolas takes the baby back to the nursery. 
 
Anna stops by to see Maxie and sees the gift Lante gave her. Maxie says she can’t make herself open it because it makes it all final. She’ll really have to say goodbye to the baby. Anna understands. She had to leave Robin behind as a baby, because of her dangerous lifestyle.  Anna promises Maxie will feel better. Maxie wishes she was as strong as Robin was. Anna declares she is.  Anna tells Maxie about Britt giving birth and the baby not being Patrick’s. 
 
Olivia hides the daily newspaper from Sonny since the headline is AJ pleading not guilty to Connie's murder. Sonny claims he’s sorry for what he put everyone through. Olivia tells him they need to discuss funeral arrangements. 
 
Monica finds AJ behind bars and begs him to tell her he didn’t kill Connie. AJ admits he doesn’t remember anything because he was drunk. Monica is livid, saying she risked everything for him. AJ claims he isn't as strong as she is. Monica says he should never have turned to the bottle and wonders how Michael will deal with this. Michael arrives and tells his grandmother he's standing by AJ. 
 
Dante tells Lulu what happened with Sonny and how scared and angry he was with his father. Lulu tells him they can’t take the baby home until they think of a name. Anna stops by with a gift and coos over the baby. 
 
Maxie goes to Britt and asks for her silence. She tells her Spinelli knows the truth, but Lulu and Dante don’t. Britt promises not to say anything. She informs Maxie she told Patrick the truth because he threatened to take the baby. She realized she’d grown to love her son. Maxie wonders where the baby is. She says she gave her baby away because it would have been worst for Lante to lose her. 
 
Michael wants to find a way to get AJ out of jail. AJ admits Diane will try to pin the murder on Sonny. Sonny was furious with Connie and left the scene.  This upsets Michael, who explains Sonny tried to kill himself.  AJ says Diane only wants to plant reasonable doubt, but Michael wants Diane to stop. 
 
Sonny opens his front door to find reporters asking his opinion about AJ pleading not guilty and Diane claiming he’s the killer. Sonny gets angry and punches the reporter. Olivia pulls him off. A furious Sonny vows AJ won't get away with this. 
  
Patrick runs into Nikolas, who is holding Britt's baby. He notes he doesn't look like Brad. Patrick admits he’s still getting used to the idea the baby isn’t his. Nikolas understands, having been in the same position with Aiden. He says he turned his focus on Spencer and appreciated what he had. 
 
A board member calls Monica in and tells her AJ’s arrest is a distraction and has negatively impacted on the hospital.  He asks Monica to step down as chief of staff. 
 
Britt asks Nikolas to bring the baby back to her room. She takes the child into her arms and bonds. 
  
Patrick tells Sabrina she was right. They need to focus on what they have. 
 
Lulu and Dante stop by to see Sonny.  Lulu hands the baby to Sonny. When Olivia asks about the name, they say they named her Connie.

Loved, loved, loved that Anna/Maxie scenes.

Loved the Britt/Nik, Britt/Maxie, Nik/Patrick scenes.

Loved the Michael/AJ scenes. CD is doing a good job of being torn between two fathers.

Not a fan of the name Connie. Seems too harsh for a baby. I thought when Anna kept calling her an angel, that they would use the name Angel or a variation on it.

it is always great seeing Monica: now she needs to kick all of them--except Traci-- out of her house

I don't mind the name Connie, but particularly because we know it's only a temporary name. When the baby goes back to Maxie, she'll rename it. Lulu and Dante will have to come up with a male name when it's revealed that Britt has their baby.

If that reporter doesn't press charges, it would be ridiculous. He was Sonny's human punching bag. In the real world, the reporter's station would be playing that clip repeatedly and would "take on" Sonny big time! I mean, he's only a coffee importer, right? Why not?

I also enjoyed the Anna/Maxie scenes, and I enjoyed the ferocity with which Monica blasted AJ! I hope her removal from the hospital hierarchy spins her into a new and interesting storyline! She deserves one.

Why oh why would the name the baby Connie? Lante never seemed closed to Connie, at least not onscreen when I watched.
Enough of Sonny and his millionth breakdown. We never saw him breakdown like this when his real true love Jason went to Genoa City. Give me a break, before Connie died, he was all up in her cousins business.

LOVED the Maxie/Anna scenes.

I also enjoyed the subtle foreshadowing with Sabrina telling Patrick they can be a normal couple now and move on...not so fast Missy, Robin is coming back and I expect a Scrubs reunion lol

I liked the Nik/Britt stuff, if they are going to be a couple, it's nice for once to see a potential romance being built onscreen as opposed to everything happening offscreen like Quiz and this odd connection with Carly and FrankenTodd. Tyler Christoper looked even more attractive with that little baby in his hands. I'm so happy he's back at GH.

For someone who's been in jail, AJ looks excellent lol I'm glad that Monica is back.
Once again I have to ask when did Dianne become such a snake and when did she stop being loyal to Sonny, did something happen to make her switch sides so quickly?

Loved the Maxie/Anna scenes. I had forgotten that she was Maxie's godmother.

I don't like the name Connie for the baby.

Diane is a defense attorney. Her only loyalty is to her current client and her wallet.

When were Anna and Maxie ever close?? I think I missed something there.

I don't like the name Connie at all. I hope it isn't short for Constanza. Why would you do that to a child.

Dianne's lawyering for Sonny was never about loyalty, it was about $$$. The Quatermaines are far wealthier, less connected to organized crime and just as needing of her services. The fact AJ has her and Sonny doesn't can only mean one thing... Dianne vs. Alexis in the Sonny Vs. AJ feud! One can hope! Maybe Monica will do to Sonny, what he did to her family, its time he paid for his Quartermaine crimes against that family. Frame him!

@Perkie, I wouldn't worry to much about the babies name, we all know in the end, its Georgie the 2nd! I think Britts baby is Lante's and Lante's is Spixies!

I'm liking about 85% of what GH is doing lately!

I hate that they named the baby Connie too, but I saw it coming. Although I do agree that her name will be changed to Georgiana when Maxie gets her daughter back.

Do not give 2 cents about Sonny and his so called breakdown, I ffd through them. It's all contrived bulls#!t. Five minutes before Connie was killed, he was up in Olivias' face talking about whether he made a mistake choosing Connie over her.

Great scene with Maxie and Anna. More please!

Naming the baby "Connie" is no more than plot point, set up by L and D and then L and Maxie dispassionately discussing her namesake's demise in the hospital, as if her death was no more than clipping a hangnail. And when the child is removed from L and D's arms, another plot point will ensue because the mob boss will "lose Connie" again, figuratively speaking. It's RC's ham fisted predictability gone into overdrive... Innocent

So Sonny doesn't have bodyguards around the clock anymore that could have kept a gang of reporters away from his door? Is Max sleeping on the job?

When was Anna named Maxie's godmother? Wasn't she, like Robert, presumed dead at the time Maxie was born? I also didn't get the comment Anna made about watching Maxie grow up/ I've known you since you were a little girl. Wasn't Anna dead?

MysteryStory, Maxie was born in 1990; Anna was presumed dead in 1992. Maxie's godparents are Anna and Sean.

Monica let AJ have it yesterday.Jennifer in Salem wasn't the only mother going off on her child. Kirsten Storms, Finola, Maurice, Lisa they all performed. Sonny knocking the shit outta the reporter classic soap. As a fan of the Genre I could not be more satisfied.

Bobbyew, I could not have said it better. Maurice is fantastic. Glad to be seeing more of him. Kirsten (maxie) makes me so sad that she dosent have her baby. Very satisfied also.

It was hard enough to accept Maxie giving up her baby just to be a good pal. Now, Spinelli, who wouldn't shut up about a kid, is doing the same thing? I just can't with this storyline.

I predict that Britt is actually pregnant with Dante and Lulu's baby (that she took one of their extra embryos and that it is not Brad's.

The only scene I liked of Sonny's is when he held the baby and they told him the baby name was Connie and he started to cry. MB was great there but of course Olivia's face had to ruin everything.

It sickened me they named that baby Connie. Made no sense because neither of them had an emotional attachment to Connie.

Why was the reporters calling Connie, Connie? She legally changed her name to Kate Howard. She is known worldwide as Kate Howard yet the reporters were calling her Connie?

Why was Nik allowed to just walk around the hospital with a newborn? Why didn't anyone say, Hey this baby doesn't have 1 Asian feature, this isn't Brad's baby. Why is Patrick all of a sudden so emotional over this baby when he has avoided Britt and her baby for the whole pregnancy? Why is Sabrina even alive?

Why prolong this stupid baby storyline? What's the point? I doubt many in the audience are invested in it anyway since Spinelli turned into a punk and didn't even step up and claim his own child. Little punk!

More Anna and Maxie.

LOVED Monica going all in on AJ!

However, utterly ridic for the board to fire Monica over THIS??? Lmao, as if there hasn't been other far worse things that have happened over at that hospital. And isn't Nik on the board??? I don't believe for one second he would have voted for the removal of his ex-mother-in-law.

Connie is an awful name. I don't believe for one second Lulu & Dante would name their baby that.

Loved Anna/Maxie in this episode. When Robin comes back, she needs to have a good long hug and talk with Maxie. Maxie needs to stop blaming herself for blowing up Robin and get her baby back pronto!

If Lulu and Dante are so damn afraid of Maxie's attachment to the child (I refuse to call the baby Connie) why the heck would Lulu willingly give Maxie a framed picture of the child???

If Monica was named chief of staff again after her drunk driving incident and her trip to rehab (when she mowed down Sam a few years back), then she can always be named chief of staff again. Maybe this sets Silas and Patrick up as rivals for the temporary job?
