It was all about love, and romance this past week on GH as Carly and Sonny remarried, Lucky found out the truth about Maxie's pregnancy and turned to Liz for comfort and support. Patrick asked Robin to move in while Nikolas and Emily grew closer as they searched for Spencer. In contrast, Ric stepped up his custody efforts.
Even though a witness stepped up who could prove Sonny shot Lorenzo in self-defense, Sonny made sure his wedding to Carly went forward. She resisted hard, wanting to remain loyal to Jax and knowing in her heart her and Sonny are just plain bad for each other. Those two reasons, however, were not enough to keep her from protecting the father of her children from jail time and the wedding went through.
Sonny continued to try and make it something romantic, something real, and the harder he pushed the harder she fought. The private ceremony at Sonny's house was moved to the courthouse on her insistence. When Carly found out about the reception at Sonny's she implored Max to create a diversion so she could escape town with her children.
Carly protests too much! If she didn't care somewhere deep down for Sonny, she would be able to follow through with her "business transaction" in a level headed way instead of being ruled by her heart. She claims to want to stay true to Jax because she truly loves him, but she has been questioning that love since he left back when Spencer's paternity was called into question. I hope this time around these characters really explore the undeniable chemistry between them and, for better or worse, come to terms with it.
Liz and Epiphany's detective work paid off, and Liz came up with the hard evidence to prove that Maxie lied about her pregnancy and subsequent miscarriage. She confronted Maxie and was about to inform Lucky when Maxie stepped up and admitted her whole scheme. Her late honesty didn't soften the blow whatsoever for Lucky and Liz hung around to pick up the pieces, comforting him and providing support so he wouldn't turn back to the drugs. She agreed to an extravagant dinner with Lucky (yet to be shown) even though she continued to contemplate coming clean with her own little secret and telling both Jason and Lucky that Jason is the baby's father.
I've truly become board to tears with this storyline and love triangle (or foursome if we include Sam). Should Liz pick Jason or Lucky? Um, does Liz not notice that Jason isn't free for her to choose? She should come clean about her baby's paternity, however, her secret is really no different than Maxie's and if she's going to start casting stones, it's time to come clean about her own lies.
