Stand­out scene

ABC Soaps In Depth - - Feature Interview -

Maxie’s ur­gent trip to the hos­pi­tal was to­tally un­nec­es­sary, but it was also in­cred­i­bly real — and a fun lit­tle nod to GH fans!

Whether or not Maxie ever re- turns the feel­ings we all know Peter has for her, it was sweet to see them bond­ing over James and Nathan. And it was clearly a big mo­ment for Peter when he got to hold his nephew again.

As he him­self said, fam­ily was all he’d ever wanted.

But in a heart­beat, ev­ery­thing changed. Maxie went into a panic over a rash on her son’s belly, and by the time they ran into Michael at GH, she’d worked her­self into a state. She ac­tu­ally asked Michael to lis­ten to the baby’s breath­ing — as if he would know any­thing! Then, with Peter by Maxie’s side, Michael used his GH po­si­tion to get her a doc­tor, stat!

On one hand, it was a sim­ple, re­lat­able scene de­void of Port Charles-sized drama — and even more so once Maxie came out and had to con­fess that the only thing wrong with her son was that he was grow­ing out of his pants!

At the same time, we had to laugh at what GH’s scribes seemed to be do­ing. With fans di­vided over whether Maxie should fall for Peter or Michael, they put her right in the mid­dle of the hunks! Stand­ing side by side, their ner­vous ques­tions and con­cern soon gave way to re­lief and ador­ing laugh­ter.

Af­ter Michael shared his own sim­i­lar ex­pe­ri­ence with Avery, Peter made a hasty exit, and Maxie en­joyed a warm mo­ment with her old friend. There was no ro­mance there… but GH was clearly hav­ing fun teas­ing the au­di­ence. And with all the sad­ness and con­fu­sion on the can­vas, we ap­pre­ci­ated the mo­ment.

GH GH let Maxie fans com­pare her pos­si­ble new loves.
