If I were the judge I might well uphold the adoption; and it could make a more interesting story had Brad and Lucas been able to be involved in it, fighting for their rights.  

Children have been given back to biological fathers who are far less stable and more cash strapped than Michael, even when the adoptive parents are a traditional heterosexual couple and the birth mother signed away her rights. 

Not only was the adoption was not legitimate because Nelle and Brad didn't sign any paperwork, Wiley is an imposter in a sense and the real Wiley is dead and buried in Jonah Whathisnames' grave.

I know this is to paint Nelle as a villain for her desire to change Wiley name to William, but he still a baby. No one called out Lulu who changed Ben's name to the far stupider Rocco, even though the kids were roughly the same age. My sister had her named changed at 2 years old and neither her or I remember going by any other name than the one we call her now. 

Say what you will about Nelle and Brad, but both seemed scared when they swapped the babies and mixed in the lies, there is a lot of truth when she talks about the power people like Sonny and Carly have, and how they have their children basically being raised by servants. 

Watch the clip on Youtube with the baby swap.

If this show keeps giving Brooklyn scenes with both Mike AND Lulu I may actually turn my opinion of her.  Lulu has no room to judge what Brooklyn is spending and how and why, and she doesn’t get to be all offended at Brooklyn’s retorts when she was the one who started in on B first.  Lulu is just so obnoxious.  Ugh.

I echo everyone else’s sentiments on the whole Willow/Michael nuptials - stupid.  Michael shouldn’t be marrying ANYONE right now, even if he married Sasha the timing would look suspicious.  But yes, I am sure the court will buy that he somehow fell in love with his friend’s girlfriend, while also being involved with someone else.  Sure, whatever I don’t care.  And Sasha shut up, Wiley DID NOT love Willow like a mother.  That’s just absurd.

I love both Cam and Trina but that kiss just gave me second hand embarrassment.  Eesh.  Maybe they were nervous.  I still hate Portia.

Sorry, but Brooklyn has nobody to blame but herself.  Did Lulu have to publish it instead of warning her?  No.  But, she did.  She wouldn't have been able to had Brooklyn not posted it in the first place.  

Now, Ned at the end of the epi was completely justified.  But, man, he is obsessed with those phones.  "Who's answering the phone?"  Well, nobody, Ned, because it's not ringing.  I have to agree with Brooklyn on that one.  She can hold a baby for 5 minutes and share a snack and answer the non-ringing off the hook phone at the same time.

Carly, you're a moron.  

Nina, maybe you could cut your own pay and give part of it to Maxie.

I hate how everyone acts like forcing Brando to stay in Port Charles is just another thing to check off the list. I mean, for Carly/Jason/Sonny it is, but their whole attitude is "Of course he'll stay! What sort of loser life in Chicago could he have that would beat this setup?" It's so gross and highhanded. 

Behind Ned were two books, one labeled A-H, the other L-Z. That is not the whole alphabet, Show. What have you got against I, J, and K?

I still don't understand why he's being forced to stay in town.  Because they want to thank him for saving Carly's life?  Because they want to protect him from Cyrus?  Because they want to keep up the ruse that he's Dev's father?  None of those are legit reasons.

This needs to be a t-shirt, and hung up next to the "Carly, walk off a cliff" shirt. Her getting all offended that Jax brought up Morgan's death because he has the audacity to be worried about their daughter's safety, and protesting that she doesn't want things to change just drives home the point that what she told Joss about putting them first is and always will be utter bullshit. Carly cares about what she wants in the moment, period. Saying defiantly that this is Joss's normal shows what a terrible, self-absorbed mother she truly is. I thought she was going to start snarling at Jax.

I don't feel sorry for Brook. She's also a moron.

Yeah, I was more wondering why she was talking about the press statement. Maybe she wasn't going to prepare it, but was just confirming what she should say to the press if asked about the situation (as a shareholder and as the CEO's wife). Confusing dialogue at any rate.

It doesn't matter if the only reason Brando wants to go back to Chicago is because he's a loner and likes the pizza place a block from his apartment.  THAT'S HIS CHOICE!  The whole "what do you have to go back to?" is besides the point.

Completely agree! Though, I'd respect the writers a lot if he said he wanted to go back to Chicago because he felt he was less likely to get shot there than Port Charles where a third of the population has been involved in murder, half have had attempts on their lives, and it seems to have a higher rate of stupidity than anywhere else in the country.

I love Wiley’s expressive face.  At one point he was looking at Brook Lynn like ‘you so dumb.’  It was cute later on when they were sharing his bag of Cheerios.

I think Brando, Chase and Lucas are very attractive, but look like babies when clean-shaven.  Keep that scruff, boys, you need it.

Moss looked pretty today.  I love how she sits there in silent judgement of the Corinthos Clan.

I agree that Nina should have taken a pay cut to allow for Maxi’s salary increase.  Nina is super-rich and doesn’t need the money as much.  

Lulu is a jerk.  And I don’t even like Brook Lynn.

Maxie had to sleep on a cot in Nina's office?  Because, why?  There are two Crimson employees, one was away.  Doesn't Maxie have phone service at home?  Was she printing the issue by herself, using a photocopier?  A cot?  If you really can't go home, how about using the hotel that the office is located in?

I assume Maxie DID have to photocopy the issue, after writing the copy, after doing the layout, after dressing the models and supervising the photo shoot. And then she delivered the magazines door to door. They always show Nina and Maxie doing everything (or talking about doing everything) themselves, and I’ve always found it ridiculous. But the stupidest part is that Maxie still has a desk in the LOBBY.  She should have quit over that indignity alone, years ago.

Exactly what I was thinking. Or give her some stock options, or give her a big bonus to be paid at year’s end. Something. There are always creative ways to make sure a valued employee gets paid. But then Maxie couldn’t go work for Lucy and help Sasha become Miss Star Eyes 2020.

I don't want everyone to hold hands on GH, but the Brook/Lulu rivalry makes them both look inane. They didn't even fight like this when Brook was on the show before, so why is it so invigorated now? They don't have to be besties, but maybe they can just sneer at each other (both actresses can definitely contort their lips admirably) and walk away?

To be fair, she wouldn't have the first clue how to fix that mess.  She could probably make it bigger.

She's a jerk, but she really didn't do anything wrong.  Brooklyn posted confidential contracts that were going to majorly impact the town.  She did nothing unethical in obtaining them, and while she may have screwed over the fat cats of ELQ, she also may have ended up saving a bunch of blue collar jobs.  That wasn't really her motive, though.

Oh definitely, I mean they both suck and Brooklyn did a very stupid thing.  What I thought was jerky of Lulu is that she internet-stalked BL, looking for something to snark on, found something juicier and ran with it.

When Brooklyn made that HUGE, horrible blunder and Ned and Oliva were rightfully mad at her, I was disgusted by Michael's response. He just looked at her with his wry, Eeyore-dumb-face and said with a smile, 'It's OK, Brooklyn, everyone makes mistakes.' And I know that this was the show once again signalling what a gee, golly, swell, great guy that Michael Corinthos is, but my first legit thought was... wait, no, I actually said this aloud: "My God, he is *such* a terrible character!"

Because he is. That is NOT the freaking reaction that a real human being--who was recently the CEO of this supposedly major, multi-million-dollar company and is now only on "temporary" leave from--would have. It simply is not. No way, no how. Not at all. No, no, no!

The only time that Michael gets "angry" is when Nelle pulls some supposedly "evil" stunt. (Although, her "evil" stunts pale, for the most part, in comparison to what his beloved parents have done in the past on the regular and do often still.) Oh, yeah, and that one time he got mad at Morgan for like thirty seconds and Carly and Sonny for about five seconds because, oh, noes!, Sonny gone and went and shot his biological father--the one that SONNY STOLE HIM FROM!--to death.

Other than that, Michael is just so blah, so just.... ugh. "Everyone makes mistakes." Really?! Ugh, he's such a ridiculous, no-nothing nonsense joke of a character. That line, that moment, yeah, I think, it made me move the character into my 'Official Loathe' status joining his parents.

GH isn't on right now in my area. Instead a local show that has local businesses showcased is airing. The local show usually airs in the 2nd half of the 11am cst hour when the national "updates" concerning COVID-19 have been going on. The national "updates" have also kept Y&R from airing fully or at all.

Anna should go back on vacation. Another 6 months, maybe a year. Forever would be better. She can take Peter with her since she wuvs him so much.

I love this Maxie, giving no quarter. Where has she been?  Then of course the writers took it over the top and ruined it. Nina could easily cut her own salary if she really wanted to prove to Maxie that she's valued.

Jax won points from me yesterday for truth speaking to Carly. Today he lost if acting like the patronizing jerk boss that I know so well in real life.Everything Maxie said was true.  He gives all the credit to Nina because he's attracted to her. Think with your other head, Jax.

Michael saying that Nelle has as much right to legal custody of Wylie as he does made me ragey. The one with the real legal custody to Wylie is Lucas.

Sasha is perfect for Carly. Now I'll have to fast forward her entirely.

Anna has gone cuckoo for cocopuffs.  Why is Jason getting upset over this and not everything else he should.

Also, everything Anna said about Jason being #1 on the DA's criminal call list is because he's a criminal.

I tried to break up a fight at work once and I'll think twice about doing it again.  I was 21 or 22, and I tried to break up a fight between 2 17 year old guys and managed to get myself hit in the shoulder in the process.  It didn't end up being in a big deal, but someone called the cops and I say if it was an employee, they did their part.

That fight was so totally unbelievable for either woman. It was so bad, but not even bad enough to be good. The verbal sparring was better, with Brooklyn getting in a few good shots. 

Maxie/Val/Lucy bulding an empire. I can get behind that. Hope she takes Nina down. 

Every day I think they can't make Anna any more pathetic ...but apparently they can. I wonder how Fiona feels about her character being so stupid and pathetic to prop Jason and Sam of all people. The only saving grace is that Robert will be proven right.
