Nikolas confronts Hayden
I was certain Nikolas had figured it out. I thought for sure he knew that Ric (not Helena) was behind the sudden appearance of Hayden Barns. Again I have to ask, why is Nikolas keeping Jake's real identity a secret? What does Nik have to gain? He's not with Elizabeth. In fact, Nik doesn't approve of Ric – so why not step up and tell the truth about Jake? And let's not forget that Sam is family to Nikolas.
As if Maxie would realistically choose Spinelli over Nathan. I think it's a bit ridiculous. Nathan is honest and true. Spinelli has spent most of his life being dishonest. And Spinelli chose Ellie over Maxie. I think Maxie is making a huge mistake in choosing Spinelli. Even though Maxie reverts to old habits, she's a mother now. Maxie has become a mature woman. Spinelli is a child – he's certainly not enough to keep Maxie happy.
