Dr. Louise "Lainey" Winters
Played by Kent Masters King
Lainey is a dedicated psychiatrist. She is good with her patients,
even difficult ones like Sonny Corinthos, who came to
her for his bipolar disorder. She used to share an
apartment with gal-pals Robin and Kelly. Robin moved out to move in with
her boyfriend, Patrick, who later became her husband.
The three girls and their other friends used to go out to Jake's to have tequila
shots, sometimes do karaoke, and let off steam.
Lainey has not
been lucky in love. She was involved with Stan, who worked for
Sonny until he was killed in a mob hit in 2007. She dated
Justus, but he was killed
before they had a real chance together. Her career and her family have
taken up most of her focus. Lainey had a father with Alzheimer's who
lived in a rest home, but her patient Cody Paul, an
Iraq veteran, killed him for her (as a mercy killing).
SOAPnet described her as: "a therapist who helps patients face their
demons even though she can't face any of her own. When Lainey encounters
a troubled war veteran she questions whether he's in need of therapy
sessions or her prescription pad. Lainey will test her abilities as a
shrink while battling truths regarding her own family life."
Lainey helped Lulu,
Elizabeth when each of them were at Shadybrook
with breakdowns, and she helped her pal Robin when she had post-partum
depression. She herself lived in a sanitarium for awhile.
Lainey was not given a lot of story on the show. She was last seen in
2010 but is still mentioned occasionally on the show as if she's still there
as a doctor.
