There may not be a malaria outbreak in Port Charles but baby rabies is making the rounds again. Jason and Sam are expecting their second child, Dante and Lulu are planning to implant a sibling for Rocco and Nina wants Curtis to find her baby.
Sam’s pregnancy is moving story line for Jason and her in a good direction. I’m pretty happy with it so far (fingers crossed!). I liked that Sam telling Jason that she was pregnant was used to addressed some things from their past such as Sam’s struggles to have children, Jason’s behavior when she was expecting Danny and the impact of his dangerous lifestyle choices on his family. I still think it’s ridiculous that they are currently divorce but hopefully that will soon be fixed. I feel like with the upcoming wedding, already having Danny and the baby on the way, Jason and Sam should be domesticated a little in order for their journey to make sense. They can still have their edge but let them have a family life too.
Dante and Lulu are another couple that is currently divorced for no apparent reason. They’re getting a new house, planning a new baby and acting just like they’re married. Something is obviously not going to go as planned with baby #2. The Cassadines have been after Lulu’s embryos for awhile now. Helena was walking around kissing a thermos of frozen egg a few years back. Olivia’s premonition that she has a granddaughter somewhere out there seems to be hinting that the egg in that thermos may have already hatched. This is one of those stories that has been waiting to be told but not necessarily one that I think fans have been scrambling to see.
Meanwhile, Nina’s desire to be a mother hasn’t gone away. She surprised Curtis by announcing that she wants him to find her a baby. After she filled him in on the whole Jamie Summers/Canada thing, it was pretty clear that he would have to use some rather shady means to actually get her a baby. Wanting to be a mother has always been Nina’s thing but the timing of this subject popping up again along with her recent “connecting” with a Cassadine is screaming “baby switch”.
The Fashionista, The Cop, His Wife and Her Lover
I like Nathan, Maxie, Claudette and Griffin. I think the quad is intriguing and love all the actors. But I wanted a little bit more from the reveal that Griffin was the man that Nathan shot. I think maybe it could have been more layered. Maybe Curtis could have found out first, clued in Nina, Nina then could have told Nathan, etc. The way it played out didn’t quite allow for everyone’s reactions to have their own beat. I wasn’t really a fan of Nathan just attacking Griffin and Maxie taking it as a sign that Nathan is still in love with Claudette either. It just came of a bit rushed for my taste. That being said, now that all is out in the open, I’m ready to see how everyone’s lives will be affected.
I do like the chemistry between all the actors. I think having Claudette really be in love with Griffin instead of Nathan and Nathan being in love with Maxie while still harboring feelings for Claudette is a nice twist. Maxie and Griffin have also started to share a bond as well. It’s not obvious where everyone’s going to end up landing once the dust settles.
