GH: Best Laid Plans
— SOS/CTS/HH (@SoapOperaSpy) April 17, 2020
While in New York City the night before Neil’s hearing in front of the Board of Ethics, Alexis and Neil ran into each other at the opera. They both got emotional and although they resisted at first they ended up making love in Alexis’ hotel room. Britt just happened to be staying there, and she caught a glimpse of the two of them getting hot and heavy before Alexis closed the door. The next day Alexis lied to the Board and told them that she Neil had one date at drag bingo and no longer had any kind of personal relationship. So Neil was able to keep his license and took a position at General Hospital.
Julian thinks Neil took advantage of Alexis
Alexis broke her sobriety after realizing that she can’t see Neil for two years, and by lying to the Board, now they have to keep their distance. She only had one shot but she called Julian and he took her to a meeting because she was visibly shaken. So when Britt mentioned that she saw them together, Julian believed that Neil took advantage of Alexis. Alexis wanted Julian to leave it alone, but Julian attacked Neil and threatened to end Neil’s career. But will Julian report Neil against Alexis’ wishes, leaving Neil to most certainly lose his license and his new position at General Hospital.
Julian may realize he still wants Alexis
Now that Britt is gone, Julian may realize that he is still in love with Alexis. But if he reports Neil to the Board of Ethics, there won’t be anything keeping Neil and Alexis apart. So while Alexis and Neil do their best to stay away from each other, look for Julian to try to insinuate himself back into Alexis’ life and bed. A lot of fans want this to happen, but the truth is, Julian held a knife up to Alexis neck while they were married and was going to slit her throat. Anything Neil has may be slightly unethical, but Julian has done much worse. And it took therapy for Alexis to finally realize that she deserves better than a abuser like Julian. He may have turned his life around, but Alexis will have to live with those memories forever.
GH Spoilers: What will happen?
Will Alexis go back to Julian after working so hard to get over him. Or will she wait the allotted two years until she can be with Neil? What do you think?
