Maxie Jones has always been a favorite of mine. She is passionate about everything she does and is involved with. I admire this character for being true to herself even when others put her down. Even when she does crazy things, she acts out of passion and love. Maxie goes to extremes for the people she cares about. She has made some bad decisions in order to reap benefits from certain situations and most of the time caused more harm than good. However, the most recent stunt of Maxie’s is completely selfless. She is pleading guilty to a crime she didn’t commit to save her “boyfriend” Matt from going to jail. Maxie doesn’t want Patrick and Emma to lose another loved one even though they love her as well. She is willing to sacrifice herself for the good of Matt, Patrick, and Emma. A few years ago I would never have thought the character of Maxie could do such a good deed. I believe Spinelli has taught her how to be genuine and love selflessly. Maxie has always loved her family, especially Robin, but I think Spinelli has had a lot to do with showing Maxie what love truly is and how to put yourself last when it comes to helping others. It’s great that Maxie has Spinelli to stand by her through anything, and right now she needs him the most. Hopefully this will ignite the flame for “Spixie” again and instead of a non-wedding, then can have a real one!
