Everyone is angry at Liz for not knowing who's the baby's daddy, while Lucky and Sam weep for what they are losing and have lost. Dillon and Lulu still struggle over her decision and try to find their way, while Maxie manipulates to get her man and some change in her pocket on General Hospital
Learning Maxie is pregnant with Lucky's baby has been, as far as Liz is concerned, the final nail in her marriage's coffin. Yet somehow, her indiscretion and "who's the daddy?" question have made her the favorite object of hate and scorn this past week. Sam, who turned to Jason and once again declared she can't live without him, had to hear the hitman's confession. To say she was devastated would be an understatement.
Later, at Nikolas', while holding Spencer, she spilled the painful realization that Liz is getting the one thing she always wanted and would never be able to have — Jason's baby. Nikolas hadn't had a clue about Liz's one nighter or the possibility of the baby not being Lucky's, but suddenly, a lot of things made sense. He promised Sam not to tell Lucky or anyone else, but then immediately called Jason over to berate him about staying away from either member of his family.
When Sam found herself alone on the docks with Liz, she lashed out at the woman, making her the target of her anger and grief before running to Jason's extra room to cry over the belongings of her lost child. Hurt and betrayed, Lulu also lashed out at Liz for not confiding about her pregnancy when she counseled her on her choices. Liz went to Carly to give her a head's up on Lulu's heartache, knowing the two have become close — and was met with another spite-filled lecture from Carly.
With so much venom suddenly directed at a character who had been pretty much liked by all before this week, I can only ask why, and what's coming? Especially given it's only one-sided — everyone's mad at Liz, but they understand what Jason was going through and it's not really his fault at all. (Say what?) Well, except for the usual Jason-haters. At the close of Friday's show, Lulu overheard Liz say the baby might be Jason's, so now she has something else to hate Liz for, even though she promised Lucky she would try and make peace with her for Cameron's sake.
