I am just so happy.
After endless months of flirting with Max, super attorney Diane Miller made the first move by pulling Sonny’s bodyguard to her and laying a long, passionate kiss on the otherwise, shy Max.
And it didn’t end there!
After they had sex on – of all places – Sonny’s couch, Diane’s new BFF and fellow attorney Alexis Davis walks in on them….staid, uptight Alexis.
These scenes were welcome comic relief in a show that – at the moment – abounds with dark, sad and tragic storylines.
We have Nikolas taking the experimental drug in order to keep his dead fiancee, Emily, coming to him via hallucinations; while faithful and adoring nurse Nadine is taking the brunt of his delusions – Dark.
Claudia and Johnny Zacchara trying to deflect suspicion about Michael’s shooting from them – Dark.
Grief-stricken Sonny, blaming himself for his son’s shooting and pacing around his coffee warehouse with a gun – Dark.
Elizabeth and Jason ending their relationship – Sad.
Carly and Jason grieving – Sad.
Michael’s shooting and the ensuing prognosis that he may never regain conciousness – Tragic.
There you have it in a nutshell.
Not much uplifting happening on GH these days.
Except Diane, Max and Alexis.
They add a much needed laugh to episodes that have brought buckets of tears.
Watch the scene after Alexis walks in and she chastises an unrepentant, Diane.
Ever since Max (Derk Cheetwood) had that obsessive crush on Carly, I’ve wanted Max to have a real love interest.
Those scenes really brought out Cheetwood’s comedic side. And he is so likeable and so funny!
As for Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) – I’ve craved scenes with them ever since the duo embarked on their excellent adventure .
Grahn and Hennesy are brilliant together. They feed off each other seemlessly.
Check out the Diane and Alexis scene that preceded the Diane/Max encounter.
Alexis was crazed over the realization that Michael’s shooting could have been Christina, her daughter with Sonny.
Diane tried to help her friend, offering spirits and advice.
Did you catch the part when Coleman delivers Diane’s umbrella drink and Alexis tears the top off and begins slurping it?
Now that Diane and Max have done the deed, I’m looking forward to seeing where this will go.
