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.
