Maxie Gives Cody Advice After Mac’s Reaction to His News — and Drew and Willow Discuss Their Kiss

Outside the stables, as the fireworks go off, Cody blurts out to Mac, “I’m your son.” Mac spins around and asks what he said. Cody tells Mac that he’s his father. Mac asks how he knows. Cody admits he lied about the DNA test, and it was for a stupid reason. Mac asks him to tell him anyway. Cody tells him that he had a claim to the Ice Princess, and he had to swear an affidavit claiming to be Leopold Taub’s son. Mac can’t believe he kept this secret out of greed and that he’s known for over a year. Mac rants that he’s reached out to him, he opened his family and his heart to him, and at every turn, Cody slammed the door in his face.

Cody tells the truth GH

Cody says he wanted to be his son, and a part of his family. He wanted to tell him earlier, but he just didn’t know how, and he isn’t proud of it. Mac hates that he couldn’t be honest with him, and the worst part is he lied to Felicia, Maxie, Georgie, James and Bailey Lou. He yells that Cody doesn’t give a damn about any of them. Cody says that’s not true, and if it helps that this is killing him. Mac says it doesn’t, he doesn’t trust him, and his claiming to be sorry could be just another lie.

MAc upset GH

Mac storms off, and later, Maxie finds Cody sulking in the stables. She is looking for James’ riding gloves, as he may have left him here. Cody stops her rambling and says he shouldn’t keep teaching James. She asks why, and these lessons are her only leverage to get him to clean his room and behave. Cody explains Mac is furious with him, that he’s been lying, and everyone was right, that he is Mac’s son. Maxie is shocked, but says she can see it. Cody says he told Mac the truth tonight, and to say he’s not happy would be a massive understatement. Maxie asks why he lied as Mac is such a great guy?

Cody says that, at first, he thought he wanted money over family, but by the time he realized he was wrong, the lie had gone on for so long. He says he feared Mac would hate him, and now he does. Maxie says he will get over it, and he’s just angry. Cody says he has appreciated getting to know her family. Maxie says, “Hello, we are siblings.” Cody says they aren’t related, but Maxie says Mac is basically her father, so that makes them siblings and also makes him her kids’ uncle. She thinks James will be thrilled about this news. Cody suggests she hold off on telling James until she talks to Mac. Maxie says if he thinks he can get rid of them that easily, think again. Maxie knows he’s thinking of packing up and leaving. She tells him to trust he as she has made mistakes, and it can’t get any worse, so he needs to stay. She tells him to remind her someday to tell him about how she faked being pregnant to land a guy.

Cody has been lying GH

Maxie asks Cody not to leave for Mac, Sasha, and for himself. She makes him promise not to leave and even say the words. Maxie says he won’t regret it. Cody finds James’ gloves and gives them to her before she leaves.

Mac is sure he’s got an angle. Felicia says this is Cody’s loss. Mac says he would have welcomed him into the family, he would have found a way to love him.

Portia yells, “And when the mayor uses her power to help a family member, the people have a right to ask questions.” Laura says she does have the right to ask questions, and all she is saying is it is up to the court to review Heather’s case just like it would be for anyone else.

Nina says what she wants the most is to have a relationship with her daughter and grandchildren, and that means working with him, so be it. She also loves her job at Crimson, so she would be an idiot to antagonize the CEO. Curtis says they both are independent and hard workers, and Aurora needs them both.
