If you're a softy who cries at Hallmark commercials or the lyrics to Adele songs, you might want to have a box of tissues handy for Monday's GENERAL HOSPITAL. It's bound to be a tearjerker!
Mac and Felicia made it their mission to cheer up Maxie, whose heart breaks a little bit every day. Stuffed reindeer antlers and a Christmas tree suitable for a pigmy just didn't cut it. Although Maxie appreciated the effort, nothing could distract her from the grief of losing Connie. Any temptation she might have to see her daughter would go unfulfilled because the tiny tot would be living on the other side of the country with his father.
Meanwhile, the news that he and Ellie would have to leave town that same night rattled Spinelli. He came up with every excuse possible to delay the move, making Ellie wonder if he was having second thoughts. But that wasn't the case. He knew it was the right thing to do. It was merely the reality of leaving a place he had called home for so many years. Saying goodbye to Sam was hard enough, but there were others he wished he could see before leaving -- Diane, Sonny, Lulu. There was one other person he knew deserved a proper goodbye, and that was Maxie. When there was a knock at her apartment door, she assumed it was Mac and Felicia returning for another pep talk, but it wasn't. It was Spinelli... holding their little girl.
Lulu's separation from Connie was also debilitating, and Dante's suggestion that they try to have another baby angered her. It took some major convincing to get her to see that it was about healing and moving on. It'd be easier this time because they wouldn't have to harvest eggs or put him in a room with a cup and a dirty magazine! There were frozen embryos sitting in a lab, so why not put them to good use? Lulu admitted she was scared of trying and failing. He finally convinced her to take the leap of faith, and they were both thrilled at the possibility. But when they later showed up at the lab, Ellie gave them some strange and unexplainable news -- the embryos were gone!
Amidst all the baby drama, Nikolas and Britt had fun with Spencer and Lesley decorating their Christmas tree. Spencer flirted up a storm with his dad's new girlfriend and, at one point, said all he wanted for Christmas was an Xbox, a train and for his dad to marry Britt! Nik and Britt did make it to first base under the mistletoe with their eye on home plate, but she stopped him as he was rounding to second. "I'm not having second thoughts," she said. "I just need to tell you something first." Does that "something" have anything to do with the missing embryos?
Next week, Britt has a confession, Spinelli says his goodbyes and Patrick makes a decision! Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!
