Fans who have been supporting Nathan (Ryan Paevey) and Maxie’s (Kirsten Storms) relationship from the very beginning might be biting their lips right now, nervous that the new romance won’t even stand a chance now that Spinelli is back. Some fans who have been on the Naxie bandwagon since Nathan arrived supported the couple because it was second best to Spixie. Others just remained hung up on Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) and Maxie’s love story and didn’t want to accept that Maxie would move on with anyone.
When Spinelli and Ellie (Emily Wilson) still lived in Port Charles, Maxie was the one professing her love to Spinelli. She told him after all they had been through that she had wanted him back, and he rejected her love and chose Ellie. The two moved to Portland Oregon so that Ellie could pursue her career at the local hospital lab. Maxie was left alone in her thoughts of being rejected, and alter finding out that she lost custody of her own daughter to Spinelli.
Now that Maxie has finally put her life back together with the help and support of those who love her, including Nathan West, she had the courage to move on romantically. Nathan and Maxie have a large adoring fan base, but is it as strong as the 8 year romance that had developed between Maxie “Maximista” and Damian Spinelli. Today they have an even stronger bond, their daughter Georgie (Harper Rose Barash).
Spinelli is back in Port Charles and since Christmas, he has had a lot to think about. While still with Ellie, she pointed out to Spinelli that he and Maxie look like they belong together, as a family, with their daughter. Spinelli has now confessed his feelings for his Maximista, and since Nathan and Maxie aren’t seeing eye to eye over Johnny Zacchara (Brandon Barash), will this be the gateway for a Spixie reunion? Maxie said it herself, no one knows her the way Spinelli knows her. and accepts her the way she is. Does Nathan have it in him to love Maxie as selflessly as Spinelli does?
Let us know what you think! Would you like to see Maxie move on from Spinelli with Detective Nathan West, or would you like to see Spinelli and Maxie be a family with their daughter Georgie?
