Although love was most definitely in the air this Valentine's Day in Port Charles, no one's evening panned out exactly how they planned it. Old friends, new problems, big declarations of love and, oh, yeah, news of a baby on the way made Cupid's job more difficult than ever!
The fun began with the arrival of Olivia's chum from her Bensonhurst days. When "Mel" showed up out of nowhere to see "Liv," they greeted each other with a jubilant, loud screech and some ceremonial jumping on and down with joy. Did we mention it was loud? Anyway, the two old friends caught up, talking about everything from "under the bleachers" reputations to, of course, the state of Olivia's love life. She mentioned she was carrying a torch for Ned Ashton, to which Melissa shouted, "Oh my God! Eddie Maine?! Lois' ex?"
Unbeknownst to both women, Melissa's celebrity chef son was preparing a romantic dinner for Ned and Alexis at the Q mansion. Alexis' tardiness had him flashing back to seeing her in Julian's GH room. When she finally showed up, the tension could be cut with a knife. His admission that he saw her holding hands with Julian set her off on a "you're spying on me?" tirade which gave her reason to leave and return to, you guessed it, Julian. She sat at his bedside and admitted that she wasn't over him just yet.
Back at the mansion, Melissa rushed in to check on her son the chef and realized she was in the company of the man who was too blind to see that he and Liv were perfect for each other. What Mel said must've sunk in because he showed up at the Metro Court looking for Liv. His timing couldn't have been more awkward, as he walked in just as she was learning she was pregnant!
Spinelli and Georgie's arrival brought a gigantic smile to Maxie's face. She tearfully admitted they had an argument that she feared they'd never recover from. Prompted by that news, Spinelli dropped a bomb of his own, saying that Ellie broke up with him... because she believed he was still in love with Maxie! The thing was, Ellie was right! Opposite that, Nathan was grilled by an ADA about Johnny's escape and he admitted his girlfriend was partially to blame for that. Although it was obviously difficult for him to do, he played it down, lying that Johnny broke into Maxie's apartment and stole the cash and car keys.
Patrick was going to be late for his dinner date with Sam, but his colleague Derek stepped in. Sam and Derek chatted up a storm, with her, ultimately, urging him to make up with his girlfriend. When Patrick arrived, Sam greeted him with a kiss and all was well. Meanwhile, Lucas felt so badly for not responding to Brad's "I love you" with "I love you, too!" that he stood on the nurse's station counter and announced it to all who could hear!
